Shizuoka Hobby Show 2019

It’s time again for the Shizuoka Hobby Show, and as I made my way towards the Bandai section, I noticed a long queue to view the latest releases up close. At some point along the queue was a placard with “40 minutes waiting time” written on it. That was just a bit too ridiculous for me so I just snapped a photo or two from distance. So sorry for the lack of Bandai photos.

But I got a glimpse of the RG Nu Gundam and the proportions look better than the MG ver. Ka. There doesn’t seem to be the green psychoframe gimmick but that’s OK. So here’s some photos from other vendor booths:

Instead of wasting my time queuing up, I put it to good use by admiring the works of Japanese modelers in the other section of the show. I was impressed with a whole row of MG Deep Strikers, each very unique.

My favourite builds at the show are the ‘gag dioramas’. Gotta admire the creativity to make such builds.

And finally some other interesting mecha and figures at the show:
