Hi guys, maybe the wrong section of the forum but I invite any Vancouver area locals to compete in our upcoming Gunpla contest at Metropolis Comics and Toys in Burnaby.

The first ever live Gunpla contest for Vanpla! Join us at Metropolis Comics and Toys for classic Vancouver mecha competition.

It is an out of the box contest, meaning no mods or aftermarket parts are allowed! Only cement, paint and putty for seamlines. Kits can be any grade, scale and subject as long as it's mecha (non-Gundam kits OK!).

Kits can be previously started, and purchased from anywhere. One kit per entrant. Prizes sponsored by Metropolis Comics and toys.

Store opens at 12:00pm, with set-up and judging for 2:00pm.
