I just have to feature this monster. It seems The O is a perfect canvas for monstrosity...Monstrosity in a GOOD way. There's something about its grotesque shape and form that lends itself to some awesome mods, and in the right hands, such as those we've seen from DC23, Toymaker, and now, this fella whose name I'm still not sure of (anybody know?), here is yet another crazy incarnation of this monster suit.

Alright fellas, this one deserves a feature just solely based on the fact that it's the representative from my own country for the 2011 GBWC Finals in HK! To be honest, I totally overlooked this monster in the beginning, but upon close inspection and after you see Moscower's WIP pics, you'll realise how high-level his mods are. They're INSANE! I think judge Kawaguchi san probably thought it was resin kit!!!

Woohoo a 3rd place finish is good enough for me this year! This is my first time breaking into the Top 3 placing, since starting out as Best Newcomer last year. Once again, two persons that deserve the biggest thanks for this result (which to be honest, I wasn't expecting - there're a coupla more impressive entires in this year's compy so I thought my chances were slim for even a Top 3): Toymaker, as always, for his guidance, and *ahem* my girlfriend, for her patience with this hobby.

I'm rooting for this fella even though it's not from my country. Need I say more? This is the winner from Malaysia - a BADASS four-legged Kshatriya with a cannon arm. Exquisite use of shaded tones, and you won't even believe it if I told you this is apparently Jeff's first time attempting a weathered build. WOW.
Here's something I thought I should have in my archives just for personal record. As y'all should know by now, it's Japan's winner for the GBWC, which means this is what you're up against if you represent your country in the Finals in HK next month.

WOW it seems results from around the region are flying in left right and centre! I've just gotten permission from two gracious people - Zero G members Wax, and Becky Law to use their pics of the entries over in Malaysia, when the results there got announced. From the pics alone I dare say the standard of kits in Malaysia is better than ours! So if any of you haven't already heard, here's a lowdown of the Msian entries, and the grand winner who'll go to Japan for the Finals (above). A sublimely weathered four-legged monster Kshatriya by Jeff Ho. Congrats bro!

While we await the results for the GBWC here in S'pore, lets hop over for a peek at what's going down in the Philippines! Judging from the slew of pics, they have tons of entries man. Special thanks to Dark Workx and Don (DC23), for whom all the pics you see here are from.

Most of you who read my blog are probably already readers of Toymaker's blog anyway, but I have to post this for my own personal reference. In my opinion it's a big shame this kit didn't make it to our GBWC in S'pore cos it's still a work-in-progress. There's a base and a BFG to come, and more detailing of parts.

Let's take some of the attention away from things happening on our side of the world for a while, and look at the GBWC on Japan's side, shall we? Yep, the Japs are taking part in this year's compy too. Their results are out. The pics are taken from Crunchyroll, so due credit to them.

This is what you do after a big weight have been lifted off your shoulders since completing my GBWC entry in time for the deadline. I guess you can call it...a 'release'. LOL. While I'm still working on proper photos of my Delta to post, I just felt like spinning a side story for the project, which weaves into the Trinity Secret War saga that I did for a group build by some of my friends last year. People who don't like to read, you can tune out here, 'cos it's mostly words. But if you're kind enough to indulge me on this, you can more or less guess what MS (nope it's not the Delta, even though I use that as a base kit!) I will be presenting for the competition. I hope that my words entertain. Enjoy folks!

As we near the deadline of submission for my competition, I can't help but feel excited yet pensive at the same time, over some everyday observations and stuff about life in general. There are still some touch-ups that I would like to do on my Delta, but I'm not sure if I have that luxury....I do however, have the luxury of posting this though. Lol. So here goes....

Okay guys, I'm just being a tease but ya know, it's only over a week more to the competition. I'm in the final strecth now and painting my dio. The delta is done and I'm eager to show it but I like the suspense at this time, so just bear with me and once I get some proper photography done and the entry's been signed and sealed into the compy, I'll post everything, including WIPs. For now, let's just have fun with these! :P
It's finally here, folks! The annual Gundam Expo for Singapore, held in conjunction this year with the GBWC for which I'll be participating in. What's there to expect? Lots of limited edition exclusive items, the latest line-up of kits and possible sneak peeks at coming ones, an appearance by Mr MG himself Kawaguchi san (creator of the MG kits), and a Bearguy display and competition. Woot! Oh, did I leave out the ahem, Gundam girls? LOL.
On a side note, the organisers are also looking for promoters to help them with the event. Interested parties can call Shengtai's (local distributor of Bandai's kits) office and ask for Jeff: 6743-3636
See y'all there!

This is probably a bit late guys, sorry, as I've been busy completing my GBWC project. I'm in the final stretch now and should be able to finish by the deadline (one more wk!) barring no major screwups!! Anyway, back to Gundam Age. Episode 4 sees our hero introduced to wiseguy ace Woolf Enneacle.
