Event: Gundam Showdown 2004 Malaysia
Venue: Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Period: 25th – 30th November 2004
I was digging through my old files and stumbled upon my first ever coverage pictures for Gundam-related event. Most of the pictures taken were so poor and amateur that I only managed to “rescue” only few of them.. ToT
Prize Giving Ceremony
As much I can remember, the event was one of the best modeling competition I have attended. There were lots of creative dioramas and it was the time when Gundam Seed series was at it zenith of popularity ^o^
Unfortunately I didn’t take down the list of winners for this competition, but there’s one winner that I still remember which is a little girl who won first place in Junior Category and she was only 6 or 7 years old at that time.. O__O
This event was probably the most earliest Gundam modeling competition that was held in Malaysia. I believe that it was this event that created the local hype of Gunpla modeling as it is today. It was a very splendid event!
