6th Christmas Toy Fair and 1st Philippine Die Cast & Custom Car Show

The “6th Christmas Toy Fair” and “1st Philippine Die Cast & Custom Car Show” will be held on December 16, 2011 at Megatrade Hall 1 at SM Megamall. This is a 3 day even running from 10am to 9am each day. This is you chance to buy some toys, action figures and possibly some Gundam model kits. But I do not guarantee the Gundam kits since nothing was mentioned about it. For our Gundam Modelers, this is an opportunity to get some inspiration from Car Painting since the methodologies in painting Gundams and Toy Cars are the same.

Gundam Model Kit Contest | Awarding Ceremony | Toy Kingdom | July 2011

The Toy Kingdom Gundam Model Kit Contest Awarding Ceremony was held at SM Megamall last July 31, 2011 which was a Sunday. Eager participants await the announcement of winners while building free SD Astray model kits at the same time (hehe). I was not able to get a lot of pictures because my hands were literally full during that time. I was able to get a picture of the prices though, and I was able to get a picture of the winner of the OPEN and EXPERT category together with the Bankee representatives from their (Bankee) website.

By the way, alongside this event was Sarah Geronimo singing just a few meters away from the venue haha.

Forgive my lack of pictures 😀

Won 1st Place in Toy Kingdom’s Gundam Detailing Contest | July 2011

We went to Toy Kingdom SM Megamall earlier to try and get ourselves a free SD Red Frame Astray on the Gundam Detailing Contest (part of Gundam Caravan). Well I said FREE because win or lose you get to keep the SD Red Frame Astray. And guess what? My GF actually won first place, 2nd is a girl whom I do not know and 3rd place is a college friend of mine. What A lucky day it is! Lucky for her! haha my entry got dumped LOL… The judges decided to go for a clean build. I also got my MG 00 Raiser Medal at the same time from a friend.

Its funny because we did not know that one of us won… We were asking to get the kit already because we thought both of us were not selected. But we were surprised instead to learn that my GF’s entry was selected. And we did not know it was the first placer not until they told us.

We were at SM Megamall today till 2pm. That is why we were able to witness the submission of entries of some participants of the Gundam Model Kit Contest hosted by Toy Kingdom. I was able to take picture of some of the entries but as I have said, we were there till 2pm only. I was also able to see some familiar faces but they were too busy sticking blue tack to their prized entries… haha

Gundam Exhibit | Model Kit Contest | Toy Kingdom | SM Megamall | July 2011

We went to Toy Kingdom SM Megamall earlier and this is what we found. Apparently they have the exhibit in line with the Gundam Model Kit Contest this July 2011. The exhibit hosts Gundams of which I do not know where they came from. My guess is that they are owned by Toy Kingdom (or Bankee) or borrowed elsewhere. Saw some cool looking kits here. I liked the modified 1/60 F91 which looked like Heavy-Arms. There were a lot of MG, followed by 1/144 then a few SD and Sangokudens.

Enough blabbering, check out the pictures below (taken by my measly Iphone4 camera)

For those who recognize some of the model kits below, please raise your hands! plox!
