This is going to be a long update since I’ll be covering a good amount of stuff!
So for starters let’s start with what had happened this past weekend which was Anime Matsuri in Houston, TX on April 2 – April 5.
It was tons of fun, I met some new people, saw some friends from a previous convention, competed in a Gunpla competition & also hosted one badass panel! Now that it’s all over let me put on some highlights for you guys
- I snagged 1st on the Gunpla Competition using this MG Unicorn(DAT UNICORN DOE)!
- Both of my Club’s panels we’re great success!
- I lost my Nippers/Cutters during the give-away since I’d left them in the damn SD Box…
- Forgetting the Austin Gundam Club banner in my Car in Austin,TX… (I dropped the ball on this and I was roasted rightfully so.)
- Spent plenty of time with someone I’m getting really fond of (uguu guys, this is where you say uguu)
- See Teddyloid with some of my closest friends (#FASTFURIOUS)
- See VampyBitMe in her kickass Gouf Cosplay
- See Goldy in seriously one of the best Mech cosplays I have ever laid my eyes on
- Spread Gunpla to more people! (Now isn’t this the end goal?)
Much more happened but these we’re some of the highlights. Now that we’ve covered Anime Matsuri let’s get into detail on my personal panel this convention.
I hosted Gunpla Building 102 & to be completely honest I was expecting maybe 40 people? But what happened was we ended up with about 120+ Headcount at one point, some people we’re forced to stand up for lack of chairs and the retention was pretty solid like I believe it was less than 10 people left mid panel.
We covered some advanced techniques but made it more of an open forum for this panel, it was very interactive to the point where I got grilled for liking Unicorn… But ya’ll will see that video when it comes up! (Shout-out to the Yung Boku no Marko for delivering one of the nastiest burns I have ever heard). All in all it was a great experience and I would love the chance to do Matsuri again! But first… let me take a selfie!
Now let’s talk about some updates…
I have yet to finish Gundam Build Fighters Try… nor have I finished Shigatsu wa no Kimi Uso… So what’s going to happen is I’m just going to Marathon both shows this coming weekend and I’ll write a overall thing for both series rather than covering each episode… I know how lazy of me but that’s definitely whats going to happen this weekend. So that’s as far as Anime Update goes. Though there are definitely some new series that I’d want to keep 100% on like UBW PLZZZZZZZ
Now let’s get back to Gunpla!
Gunpla Builders World Cup 2015 & A-Kon 2015
I am going to be participating at GBWC2015 Regional here in Texas and though I have an idea of what I want to do I actually still am up in the air about it…
I have 3 kits that I could possibly enter
- PG RX78-2
- MG RX78-2 Ver. 3.0
- MG Char’s Zaku Ver. 2.0
If they only allow one kit for entry this year I’ll be entering the PG, otherwise I’ll be entering both the MG’s if they allow 2 like they did last year. As far as planning goes, I’m on that stage, just want to finish the V-Dash first before committing to anything. Off-course paint, decal, etc. I’m thinking of doing a Diorama combining both kits to be honest and also possibly dipping into some LEDs (Thrusters and what-not)
And I mentioned A-Kon 2015 because that’s actually where the Regional is held and also the Austin Gundam Club will be having another Panel there! This time something exclusive for A-Kon (Much like what Gunpla Building 102 is for Matsuri) called “Gunpla Academy” though we just got the green light on that yesterday (04/06) and we hope on getting a bigger crowd than Matsuri and actually making a good impression.
I believe that’s pretty much it for updates, I’ll be more lively here again I promise. I’m going to be building some robots these next coming days rather than going out so expect me here B O Y S ! Though after the V-Dash I am going to slow down on commissions until I get some work done on my personal projects for GBWC.
Plus I need to catch up on Arrow… I’m like 3 Episodes behind. Which is strange cause I’m all caught up with Flash.
OK OK till the next update (which should be sooner than you think).
