    Currently in Singapore, there's an "Anime Festival" showcasing japanese Anime pop-culture. I was surprised to learn that even the grand-daddy of Gundam-designer, Kunio Okawara was at the event. Even though I didn't had the opportunity to get a signed autography, I managed to get a glimpse of him was he was being interviewed.

    Of course, the main reason when I attended the event was the...toys. Sorry folks, no TFs in this thread. Anyway, below are some pictures of the toys from various lines that have yet to be released.

    How did you managed to get his signature dude?!?! I wanted it so bad!!! :(  I initially planned to buy yet another RX-78 version 2.0 but it was all sold-out! BLAH!

    With regards to the May N's concert, it will be held tomorrow around Singapore time 1830HRS. I will be passing that up as it will be kinda late for me! :(

    Oh so you didn't attend his panel session at all? it was from 1:30 to 2:30pm. a very interesting session but the only thing that marred it was the lousy female translator.

    I dunno what's wrong, either she could be intimidated by Okawara san or her English was plain bad. but that aside after the whole thing ended the mc announced that mr Okawara will be having an autograph session at 5pm. but only limited to 50 persons.

    Hey nice pixs Liger bro! yup i saw that SOC Tetsujin & Black Ox too, surprisingly there were alot of it at the major retail booth of Takashimaya.

    Btw as for the autograph session, well i didn't qualify for anything at all. i was there a bit early at around 4:35pm & i already saw quite anumber of Gundam maniacs queing up. so i didn't hesitate at all & immediately join up. sadly by the time it was 5pm, those who arrived on time for the autograph session was turn away. too bad man.
