Gundam plastic model kits have been popular for well over 30 years now, so it comes as no surprise that there are events around the world that are dedicated to Gunpla. One of them is the Gunpla Expo World Tour. It’s in Akihabara right now, and the exhibit is scheduled to take place in a total of 12 other areas: Italy, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, North America, China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Thailand. The expo features Gunpla built by each country’s final contestants in the 2013 Gunpla Builders World Cup. The open course features 25 models crafted by 15 and over Gunpla builders, while the junior course features 5 models made by 14 and under builders. It is free to attend and you can vote for your favorite builder. On 11/24, they will announce the Gunpla builder who will represent Japan. On 12/22, after all the representatives from each country have been chosen, they will come to Gundam Front Tokyo to decide who will be the world champion.
