Departing a couple of hours before the official initiation of the Bon Odori Matsuri last weekend in order to secure a good parking spot for my ride, I’ve reached the site already full of early birds scattered all around the venue.
Various erected canopies await the visiting throng for the evening!
Also held within the same area is the Transformers Street Art event (Of which you may see some Autobot/Decepticon logos and/or Bumblebee/Optimus Prime statues cameo in the following photos), which I’ll cover in my next post…
The much-anticipated upcoming Real Grade, the ever elegant MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame, received a 3DCG PV introducing its fully pre-build and colour accurate inner frames in 1/144 scale, as well as boasting the overall aesthetic of the Gunpla itself.
By far the coolest PV of a Gunpla advert I’ve ever seen, aside from PG Unicorn Gundam’s.
Originally released together with Mama’gguy in Beargguy F as a set, the Petit’gguy’s small frame emits an unbearable aura of cuteness, most certainly in bid on attracting (Or as many veteran Gunota put it, cashing-in…) more female Gunpla builders to the hobby.
Seen in the anime (Gundam Build Fighters Try)’s ED sequence, the four Petit’gguys in different colour variations finally made their Gunpla début, in separate releases no less!
The colour variations are obviously a representation of the main characters in the anime itself: Winning Yellow for Hoshino Fumina, Lightning Blue for Kousaka Yuuma, Burning Red for Kamiki Sekai and Future Pink for Kamiki Mirai.
It’s very rare that I left an ACG event empty-handed, Penang Anime Matsuri Summer Party 2015 is no exception… ^_~
Using the privilege of the pass I managed to apply before the event itself, I got many good photos and memories out from the two-day exhaustion. XDc
Many grateful thanks to SOZO and Penang Global Tourism for making this possible!
