During my waiting, I started to work on this commisioned work. It's for a

HAG is having a ONE DAY only sales event at Sculpture Square this Saturday, 28 August 2010. All Gundams and HobbyMate (HM) products on sale that day will have discounts ranging from 35% to 50%. However, do note that these offers are only restricted to this event and not at the shop in Sunshine Plaza. And while stocks last! On special promotion will be the Perfect Grade OO Raiser with a supporting base that only comes with its initial launch. This set will be going for SGD 299.00! This got to be a "must grab"!!! And of course, stocks are limited.
Another important note is that the main event on that day, A.C.M.E II which is as I quote them is,
"First of its kind in Singapore, A.C.M.E aims to be the local Comi-market, bringing anime and manga fans exclusive and limited merchandises from Japan, doujin works by artists from local and SEA scene, games on different platforms; and a great location for all fans to gather and share their passion."
So you will see other anime stuff, Card Geeks Tournaments etc...
So guys, book this date on your calenders and get ready to burn holes in your wallets this Saturday!!!
WOW! This is totally out of the blue! Bandai is going to produce a perfect grade Strike Freedom! Finally a PG i can look forward to. Better start digging out my Pg Strike. Maybe. I can finally attempt a Dio like the one i did with a MG SF and Launcher Strike years ago. This is exciting!!! This better not be another hoax....
Before I begin, just want to say I am NOT suffering from Gundam burnt-out. But I cannot resist what Bandai is offering me, WarGreymon from the Digimon series. I watched the anime a long time ago but I still like it till today. This looks very like an action figure/ doll to me but I am buying it nonetheless when it release in November.
And now another favorite. I have been resisting this for a long time. But the floodgates opened the last time I was in Hong Kong. Incidentally, my first toy was a Zoid which my mum bought me. I could still remember it was a frog like machine. Don't know when can I start building but I guess I can start to accumulate first :)...
You know, when I look at Hong Kong and Japan, I always envy the folks there who get to see large-scale Gundam events. Well, not anymore. With the success of Gundam Fiesta 2009, Shengtai the main organizer, look set to make this year's event even bigger. I could still remember the display of all the Gundams from the first series to the latest one and also the huge Gundam 00 and Three Kingdoms dioramas. This year promises to be even better looking at the website .
Starting from 1 September to 13 September at Compass Point, Sengkang, there are a lot of attractions and activities:-
A giant 1:1 Gundam hand will go on display
A giant battle diorama
Gundam displays from Japan (that is something that interest me!)
The usual event merchandise
Guest Appearance: Mr Kawaguchi, the father of Master Grade models. An important figure at BANDAI
And Gundam Girls!!
I have absolutely no doubt this year's event will be a blast! I will be there on the first day and maybe everyday! :) Join them on facebook!
Just come back from a three day Hong Kong trip. this time, I'm there purely to buy toys and modeling stuff. But in the end, i bought more toys than Gundams. Phew, damage wasn't really bad. I managed to curtail spending this time. The GUNDAM resins are sure tempting.....
How many times when you finished constructing your model and about to prep for priming when you discovered a part missing? Well, now I know how it feels. This has never occurred to me. So you can imagine how stunned I was. Naturally, I started scouting my work-desk for that elusive part and when that yields nothing, I expanded the search radius to the surrounding area.
After an hour of searching, panic starts to set in. Now I think to myself, "Did I unwittingly swept that part into the dustbin?", "Did I dropped it somewhere else?" And of course I am clueless.
Today, I spent the whole afternoon ransacking my room for that part, every spot was scrutinized thoroughly. And at the end of it, I have nothing to show for my hard work (or waste of time).
As at 11.20pm 10 August 2010, I am sitting at my desk staring at my unfinished "product". Now come the crucial period, "two days". "I will give it two days" and hope that it will miraculously pop out of nowhere. If not... I think I will decide the next course of action later. Dilemmas of a modeler....
Back to Gunpla..... Well, at least my room is clean now.
