Here's what you've been waiting for, folks! Coverage of the Singapore GBWC 2012, which kickstarted today. This year's event is held at the usual spot as last year's - Compasspoint. There were quite a number of kits, with at least four to five BIG HITTERS. Yep, the big boys have come out to play. Let's start -
It's a pity this Zeta doesn't have a dio, cos I actually like the subtle mods on this one.
A real pity the base with those little people are obscured by the name tag LOL. I only noticed it the third time I saw this kit.
This Blue Musha-duel gundam is easy to miss cos of all the other big dios and entries, but a second go-round at the site got me noticing. It's actually a pretty unique piece with intricate mods. Well done!
Next up, this really interesting piece. I think the base kit is a Kamfer, and it's transformable. Wooaah. Are those polka dots??? Hmmm lol.
Nice trio display piece for the seed series.
One of the few Zgoks. C'mon I wanna see more Aqua suits! LOL.
Colour scheme kindaaaa familiar winkwink :P
Another favourite scene dio of mine. Really like the battle-torn, dirty feel of the whole piece.
Mirror mirror on the wall...
The next one is also one of my favourites - a city battle dio btw RX, Zaku and a downed GM. Intricately done street scene.
Winner of GBWC Best Comedy award. Awarded by...me. LOL
And of course yours truly. Maaaan I had a hard time bringing it down thanks to the rain - no shelter from my doorstep to the car. Had to cover the kits with plastic sheets and walk in the rain. lol:
Ok, we're in big-hitter territory now - Here's massive MASSIVE build - A Gouf dio complete with ship hangar and blinking LEDs wow.
Are you ready guys, for the final two builds which in my opinion, are a lock for the Top 2 places? Depending on how the judges feel, it could go either way with this two. I think our champ will be from this pair. First up:
A Banshee FA. I'm cross-eyed just looking at the details here LOL.
Last but not least, - Toymaker's Odin. Need I say more?
What are your views and speculations? Feel free to share! On the whole, I think Singapore made a splash this year on the combined strengths of all the mega builds and others. Well done, one and all.
Hope y'all had fun viewing. Results out in a week! Gentlemen, place your bets.
Oh and for locals, here's a GBWC contest for you to take part in! From Open the Toy. Best of luck!
