Nope, unfortunately not, I should be in Hong Kong/Taiwan during that weekend.

But you guys should all come out to Cali for the SCGMC. We hope to give the folks here a real Gunpla contest. With no business related restrictions such as using only "sanctioned" kits and what not.

We're planning on making coin trophies for the main categories and a special trophy for the special awards. We are more focused in getting the community to come together and compete and learn from one another. Most of what i learned and inspiration to build came from attending contests and just chatting with fellow modelers.

There will also be a raffle with some pretty sweet items for that. There will also be live demos and such.

See if you have a pack of local friends interested in coming... road trip :) Nothing says bonding like a group of guys on a cross country road trip. That or the train. I've flown out to the east coast for a few anime conventions. I think there may be a few people that are actually looking into flying out from the East Coast to support the event.

Unfortunately, success of such an event hinges on participation, so hopefully we blow the roof with this event.

Yeah, we're trying to make this as ligit as possible. When we start compiling the stacks of kits and stuff for the raffles, then it'll start to look even more fun. On a side note, for anyone with a facebook page, here's the FB page for ThoseGundamGuys

Exciting stuff, I'm glad the community looks like its starting to strengthen more so, a year ago I took a break, and it seemed like Bakuc just hit the states. Now my friends are coming back from conventions with pictures of gundam kits built and painted, something I've never seen them do before.

AF too.. I was in for 3 years 9 months... (I used one of those leave 3 months early because of school excuses) But still honorably discharged with full benefits :D AFSC: 1N5X3 when I left.

One of my friends, who also builds and was at Otakon last year with a bunch of entries, (I'm trying to get him to come this year) is in the process of retiring from the AF, but he's a Lt. Colonel....

Heh, my AF days are a long forgone memory, I was in from 97-01. So I've been out for over ten years now. Fun and interesting times none the less.

There are a few others in Northern Cali that are interested in coming to this event, so hopefully we can get a known list going and people can carpool. I know a guy in Sacramento that's looking forward to coming to this event.

Us United States based gunpla modelers need to unite. I'm hoping that the turnout will be amazing and I can show the local bandai distributor and their contacts at Bandai Hobby that there is a very good following of gunpla modelers outside Asia.

Was he the guy who got Best in Show for his Sazabi and won something else for the Gouf Flight Type [he had mirror bases, if I remember correctly]?

Yep. He used to take parts of the Saz with him on business trips. Parts of it were painted at my house. But yeah, he's a pretty good modeler, does tons of cosmetic mods. I'm hoping he finished his Hardgraph Type61 and brings it to otakon.

I saw the poster for this at the robot4less shop in fullerton the other day when I was stocking up on MGs. I had no idea there was enough of a fan base here in SoCal to get something like this going. I will be in NorCal for school on that day but I'm going to try and drive down for this event.

Robot4Less is one of the vendors for this event. You should see the number of gunpla modelers that show up once a month to build! If you're still around on the 20th of this month, there will be a build gathering and you are more than welcomed to come by and check it out, send me a pm and I'll give you the necessary information to get you on your way to joining the group :)

Oh, heard about this a while back. I contemplated the endeavor, but decided that I'd rather attend the IPMS Orange County Conference a bit earlier than this event.

Nonetheless, I'm glad to hear about an event as such taking place in CA.
You know you've accomplished something when you start to say things like - "Just my two cents."

I don't remotely live near CA, but I wanted to just go ahead and say this sounds like a cool event; something that would be good for gundam fans.

A good number of us that are putting together this event will be at IPMS OC's Orangecon as well.
