Arriving @ Gundam Fiesta 2009

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 9
Pic taken from Leon's Open the Toy blog cos it blended well with the colour scheme of my blog. The private view was made possible all because of Leon's introductory. There are also a lot to learn from Leon on blogging & networking

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 1
You will not miss this backdrop the moment you step into the event area of Compass Point. There are also other posters within the Compass Point on information about Gundam to lure you over!

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 4
Facing the crowd is a human size 00 Gundam. It is the first time 00 Gundam of this scale is exhibited in Singapore. Other human size Gundam previously exhibited in Singapore would be Destiny Gundam during STGCC 09, Exia Gundam during AFA 2008, Freedom Gundam & Gundam RX-78 @ during Vivo Gundam fair

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 5
This magnificent 00 Gundam is worth taking a closer look. Impressive double GN Drives on the shoulders

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 8
Entrance is guarded by this human size godfather RX-78 Gundam. The event area is about the size of 3 badminton courts. Not a very big area but it's well organised and utilised. Sorry that I overlook taking pics on the layout. Perhaps you can visit Shaun's blog 'Fortress of Testicular Fortitude' for the layout and preparation before official opening. Great sneak preview Shaun!

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 2
This is the grand entrance of Gundam Fiesta 2009. The blue printing on the carpet illustrated the actual foot print of 1/1 scale Gundam

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 6
A consolation to Gundam fans who didn't get to see the life-sized Gundam @ Shiokaze Park. This booth will give you a video presentation of 1/1 scale Gundam right from conceptualization to reality. Only Gundam's popularity has the pushing factors to make all these possible.

This is a 1/35 Jumbo Grade RX-78 Gundam Marking Type on display. Does it look as though you are already @ Shiokaze Park. Click here on my previous posting on Jumbo Grade Gundam. The biggest Gundam in my collection.

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 3
Accompanying Gundam guarding the entrance is human size Char's Customised Red Comet Zaku. At the background, you can see posters of all the Gundam animation series.

It all begins 30 years ago with Mobile Suit Gundam starring Amuro Ray. Following the timeline based on the year of production.

Gundam Fiesta Arrival 7
As you walk along the aisle, you will see model kits of different lead Gundams from respective Gundam animation series.

Gundam Fiesta Add 4
A closer look at some of the Gundams hall of frame. From the left, V Gundam, F91 Gundam & Gundam GP01 fb

This is my favourite Gundam among all Gundam anime series. Gundam EZ8 from Gundam 08th team. However it's not that useful in most SD Gundam G Generation games cos EZ8 is land-type and could not be deployed in space.

Gundam Fiesta Add 3
This is an overview of the stage. Visitors during the private view session were provided with light refreshments. Very thoughtful organizers indeed!

Gundam Fiesta Add 2
I didn't have any of the refreshments except the a cup of tea cos of the engrossment on phototaking and interaction with guests like Mr Takayoshi Oyma (Bandai Toy), Mr Ng Chern Liang (Sheng Tai Toys) & Mr Chur Soo Hiong (AFA Anime Festival Asia)

There is no more waiting for Singapore biggest gundam event of the year. Toys and Gundam fans had marched to Compass Point to witness this spectacular event and I don't think you should be left out. Being a toy blogger has again gained me the privilege to access the event premises first hand before it was opened to public. My apologises to the late posting due to some hiccups at my grandfather's funeral wake yesterday.
