I went down to Gunpla Expo 2011 this evening to have a better look of the entries. I felt that there is a dip in standards this year. That could be because of new participants entering the fray, I did saw a lot of unfamiliar names. If this is the case, then it is a very encouraging sign. Old folks like me could call it a day and let the young generation take over. Anyway, I took some entries selectively (it was very crowded) and hope to share with you guys.
A detailed up Qubeley. Very neat and paint job is smooth.
Don't let the colours of this Sazabi fool you. It has some top notch scratch building skills.
A modified Gyan. I like the diorama and I think it will have a good storyline if it the building is damaged by it.
Banshee with a good pose.
A metallic coloured Shenglog Gundam. Nice base!
This one is really huge. A souped up Astray. I felt that the model should interact with it environment more.
A nicely coloured Delta Plus
Modified Epyon by Leon Ku. I like this a lot (and not because I like that guy). Look at the pose and base. Both are combined to give movement and story line. It's a visual impact and definitely makes more sense. I seen this a few times and every time I sees it, it gives me a new perspective to it. Kudos to Leon for continuing to re-invent himself.
I could still remember Waylander's PG Astray last year. And looking at this one, I see a tremendous improvements. Good sense and understanding of shapes and forms allows him to kitbash and integrate the parts into this one. Trust me, it's not easy to do that..
Yes, I thought my O is probably the best here but now I have some serious doubts. By Jaef Liang, part of the group that won Singapore BAKUC Group Champions last year, he came up with a mammoth again! This O is huge. Period. Where did he find so much parts? LOL.. And as if it's not enough, he submit a second entry, a scorpion Gundam. To submit two big entries for one competition, this guy is a machine!
Customized Bearguy galore!
Seriously, I like this Zaku Bear
Gundam Age Products
1/48 Gundam Age
Waylander's Perfect Grade Strike Freedom on display as well.
I am so getting this!
Well, that's about it. I bought myself a Orange Haro Ball and my son, Advanced Grade Gundam Age Titus. He fit it up and I think he caught the bug. Finally I can pass on my kits to the next generation! Hoot!
