I am so happy to share this month blog because I got a chance to attend a special event for all you known as a GBWC (Gunpla Builders World Cup) 2012 Indonesia. So much excited and effort so I need couple minutes to rest first and thinking about what I should write down here. Hehe. This year GBWC also held in Indonesia with helps from official Bandai seller: Kidz Station. The event was located in LG Atrium Gandaria City Jakarta from November 5-11, 2012. I was coming at the last day and the full day was full of surprising. Starting from my boarding house (rent room) at 11 AM then just finishing from the event/location at 6 PM. I am sure not everyone of us has a chance to come and meet Mr. Katsumi Kawaguchi-sensei (as Gundam Bandai Japan representative and a Gunpla master also) and got pictures together or his autograph so I want to share this happy moments with those pictures and story in this blog :).
Talking about GBWC as Gunpla Builders World Cup 2012 is not fair if only share about pictures and euphoria. First at all I would share an important technical information about GBWC itself. What and How questions about the event:
What is the Gunpla Builders World Cup?Gunpla Builders World Cup is a yearly contest held amongst modelers using Bandai kits. The event is officially sanctioned and managed by BANDAI to give modelers the opportunity to encourage new upcoming modellers to show their works to the world.
The skills and techniques demonstrated in extensively modifying and beautifully painting these kits truly make the Gunpla Builders World Cup a premiere modeling event. Until now, the Gunpla Builders World Cup had been series of preliminary contests held across Asia, with the finals this year being held in Japan in December. The Gunpla Builders World Cup has a distinguished history as a showcase for some of the most amazing models ever displayed.

In this GBWC 2012 Indonesia Kidz Station as an official seller and as a part with PT. Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk (MAP) announce the event then include the final judgment also for the winners for Open, Junior and Best Category. The event started from 5th to 11th November 2012 and the last day is very important day. Because they have displayed the new and first appearance mokit such as RG Zeta, get tips from Mr. Kawaguchi himself, displayed the GBWC entries from Indonesia, get special buy and discount from Kidz Station, try out fixing model kits in the gundam workshop, and SD Gundam Online megaxus activity and competition on SDGO stand in the event.
