Heya, it’s been a while since I posted, but I’ve been super busy with all sorts of random things. Not the least of which was finishing off summative assignments for two different PDENG courses. Ugh… the horror that is PDENG. Anyway today I’m going to talk about a Gundam Expo that was held in Port Messe, Nagoya. It’s one of the few times that Nagoya actually gets a special event before Tokyo :P. It’s a massive event celebrating the 30th anniversary of Gundam (has it really been that long?). Hit the jump for more info.
The event itself was at Port Messe which is accessible by taking the Aonami line to its terminal station.
They weren’t quite prepared for the popularity of Gundam. They even forgot about putting out bigger garbage cans.
The inside of the expo was incredibly incredibly dark. I learned a few camera tricks from experimenting with ISO, shutter speed, and aperture size while I was in there. The pictures all came out better than I thought.
Jumping Gym to nab the kids while they’re young I guess?
They had a bit of a museum corner to go with it too.
Center piece of the event was a massive model of a mobile suit battlefield. It was actually really nifty. I’d like to try and make one of these one day too.
There was also a massive line up for Gundam ID cards. I’d line up if they were NERV cards though.
And finally, the bazaar for the limited edition event goods. I only bought myself a brochure for 2,500 yen. The contents are rather interesting. I’ll upload some of it, if this post proves popular enough.
I just realized this post is 90% pictures and 10% words. Maybe it’s better that way. In any case, sorry for overloading you all with pictures. The post turned out far longer than I expected. I also have a few more unposted pics, but any longer than this would be ridiculous :P.
Well then, until next time! Thanks for reading.
