Anime Expo is excited to announce that the California regional qualifier for the GunPla Builders World Cup 2014 will be held at this year’s convention! An international Gundam model competition, the event served as the inspiration for the recent GunPla Build Fighters anime series. The winner of this contest will compete against other U.S. winners for the chance to win a free trip to Japan as the U.S. GunPla Builder representative at the end of the year.
Entries will be on display in the Bluefin booth in the Exhibit Hall from opening day until winner announcement at 4:15pm on July 5th. Entries must be in the display cases by 1pm on July 5th to qualify for judging.
Assorted rules and information on entering can be found here: http://www.bluefincorp.com/catalog/gbwc2014
Also at the booth will be special Anime Expo GunPlay sets for purchase! These unique models were previously Japan event exclusives.
