"Anyoung Haseyo", correspondent from South Korea with pics contributed by a fellow Gundam chit-chat-club member aka 'Mech Huang', taken during his holidays @ Korean Seoul Busan where he visited the Gundam Base located at Dong Bo Plaza. I have seen coverage on Gundam Builders World Cup (GBWC) Korea entries and with Gundam Base store as big as this, I'm sure there must have a strong Gundam fans' base in Seoul. In Singapore, we have model kit hobby shops and occasional Gundam roadshows but we have yet to reach the state of mega Gundam Base store with ton of space and has beautiful displays, dedicated to all sorts of mecha toys, model kits, gunpla or hobby accessories imported from Japan. 

A definite toy heaven for Mech Huang as he roam the base and sent us almost non-stop pics to our watsapp group chat. It's not just Gundam stuff as the store catered to other mecha kits ranging to Evangelion, Votom, Full Metal Panic, Patlabor and of course other Bandai's licensed product like MG Dragonball, MG Tiger & Bunny, MG Kamen Rider and One Piece. Thank you Mech Huang for widening my horizon and understanding to Seoul beside the cosmetics, K.drama, Running Man, Girls Generation, Kimchi and Korean BBQ ^_^

The space is really huge and the toys are nicely displayed..

good to know that there is a strong Gundam fandom in South Korea... actually is the first time i heard about that... looking at the size of such place, they take that hobby seriously, is more like an Expo to me !!! =)

Indeed, even though there won't be too much of a discount, the display is neat and impressive.

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Can't agree more that Gunpla is a serious hobby even in Korea judging from the scale of the store. It's also a way to attract people into the hobby especially mecha fans.

Really an awesome job with everything from the setup to displays. Now I need to find a large Gundam to post outside my house - that would be cool!

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Yeah! Very professionally done like gallery of Gunpla and friends... The biggest Gundam I have is the Jumbo Grade and any bigger than that would be difficult to display at home. You put a big Gundam outside your house and it maybe be picked up by other enthusiast. Heehee.
