Wonder Festival 2009 Winter Cancelled

October 10, 2008


Yep, you heard it right. This upcoming Wonder Festival 2009 Winter will be cancelled because of the on going further investigations that involves the recent Escalator Accident during Wonder Festival 2008 Summer back in August.

Well, good news is that this does not mean that Wonder Festival is over. The following next event, which is Wonder Festival 2009 Summer, will still commence as usual, hopefully. Basically there will be no Wonder Festival in the mean time until the investigation on the accident is over.

Official Announcement:


You can read the Official Announcement at Wonfest Website. News Via Sankaku Complex.

This kind of tick me off, but this can be a good lesson learnt for future event goers and planners. Hmm, maybe GSC and other companies after hearing the news might surprised us during next month AFA 2008~ ( ^ _ ^ )

Random Gunpla Facts & Figures

June 12, 2008

Some nice random gunpla facts & figures ^^


Nikkei Business Online has been posting a series of discussions with Bandai Hobby Division‘s Deputy General Manager & Bandai Hobby Center chief Katsuhiko Sasaki. The second one focuses on his work as a manager and the people who support the Gunpla market.

– Development of a plamodel takes 120-150 days from design to shipping out. They plan on optimizing this to 100 days.

– The plamodel market exceeds 50 billion Yen in value.

– Said market is such that even 10-year-old products can be manufactured and sold with repeated demand. The ratio of sales for new products vs. old products is roughly 50-50.

– The people who buy Gunpla can be largely divided into two groups: 14-year-olds who purchase them because of their interest in the newest Gundam on TV and 35-year-olds who’ve been fans since First Gundam. Gunpla has been particularly sustained by the latter.

My Secret Base (Well Not Really~)

June 4, 2008

I’ve decided to take some photos of my current room as of June 2008, after seeing Danny’s new “Your Room” sub-section Member’s News ^^ I just did some cleaning, so I think this is the perfect time to do this ^^ This is also a good time for those who are stil curious on how do I get all the space to display my collections ^^;

Anyway, lets start off with an overview of the room~

(Right Click on images, and choose “Open Image” for larger version)

The left side is the Figure section and the right is the Gunpla section. The space between them is where I do all my work~


A look on the Gunpla section~ The lower part is where I kept all my Nendoroid-Petits~

myroom 2

A look on the lower Gunpla section~ All the Nendoroids are well kept in a special display case, which makes my job much easier when cleaning them ^^ Put my Figmas there so I can play with them when I’m bored~XD

myroom 3

The top is some of the Gunpla boxes (Yeah, Dendrobium takes lots of space = _ = )~

myroom 4

My work space~ Also the space where I converted it to my “Mini-Studio” to do all the reviews ^^~ As you can see, I have 2 Desk Lamps, which are essentials for my reviews~XD

myroom 5

Figure sections~

myroom 6

myroom 7

myroom 8

myroom 9

myroom 10

My Shuraki figures which I have collected so far, lacking of Char ( > _ < ); Meifeng and Rize which reviews still pending ^^;

myroom 11

MG Strike Freedom -FBM- (The only perfect place to display it ^^; )

myroom 12

The only Manga I have collected so far~All in English (and that’s my Astraea which I still need to find the time to build on > _ < ).

myroom 13

All my PSP & PC games~ Also Meifeng’s and Rize’s Box which I still kept for my reviews. The rest of the figure boxes is inside the cupboard below.

myroom 14

More Gunpla boxes~ That’s my “1/60 Strike Freedom – Lightening Edition” on the left, which I still havent done any review on ^^; Brown box is my “Diffuser” for photoshoot lightening purposes.

myroom 16

myroom 17

Another corner of the room, where I displayed my humongous Dendrobium and Destiny -EBM-~ I just lucky to have the space ^^; Below is some of the Hobby Search boxes, which I still haven’t thrown away ^^;

myroom 18

myroom 19

Lastly, my only Nanoha Wall Scroll which I acquired from KKnM last year (It was the only item at KKnM) ^^;

myroom 20

myroom 21

I’m kind of blessed with all the display space, but as you can see, everything is in the open. So I have no choice but to clean atleast once a month. Such a hastle ( > _ < ) I’m planning to get myself a new Detolf Cabinet when I have the chance ^^

That’s about it I guess ^^ A little bit cramped, but I kind of happy with the overall layout, since it’s just perfect for me ^^
