Singapore Beargguy III aka Liongguy - Happy 50th Birthday Singapore




















We insert this immediate bulletin in celebration of Singapore 50th Happy Birthday with this customised HG Beargguy III by my friend, Stanley Lim, who called this the 'Liongguy'. An overwhelming patriotic atmosphere while our nation celebrates 'Majulah Singapura Our Golden Jubilee'. Stanley explained that when he attended 'Hong Kong Gundam Dock 2015', upon seeing HGBF 1/144 Beargguy III [SAN] Ver.囍, he asked himself why couldn't we have something as cute, yet symbolic and unique to Singapore? This simple thought eventually gave birth to HGBF 'Liongguy'! Furs were added to convert the bear to lion as Singapore is known as 'Lion City' and lion had been many mascots to past Singapore campaigns such as 'Singa the Courtesy Lion'. 'Liongguy' took on the colours of our national flag, red symbolises "universal brotherhood and equality of man" and white, "pervading and everlasting purity and virtue". Stanley had cleverly used the tattoos from SG Funpack (distributed to Singaporean's homehold) as decals on 'Liongguy'. I felt proud and honored that Stanley looked for me to have Liongguy's photo taken. Even the props you see were contents from SG Funpack.

HEHE... another good sample of a blend between hobby and real life, with a touch of patriotism also... i wasn’t aware of the symbolism involved in the white and red colors of your flag, that was other interesting contribution of this post... i thought it was a special kit made by Bandai, until you pointed that it was actually a custom from your friend Stanley, simple but nice idea !!!... =)
