I arrived at Makuhari Messe on a Sunday morning for the C3AFA hobby show, and was greeted with a long queue. No doubt most of them (and myself included) were headed to the Marketplace to buy resin kits.
Some of the kits were the same as last year’s, but there’s also plenty of new ones. As expected, the popular kits were the first to be sold out, so I took my time browsing at the leftovers.

I eventually purchased these two bricks: 1/144 HiZack Vanargand and a 1/100 Jegan.

After that I went to have a look at other exhibits, starting with the Bandai section. There’s several new HG kits, including a Zaku Half Cannon, Kycilia’s Zaku I, and Blue Destiny Unit 2. The next RG kit is Johnny Ridden’s Zaku. On the MG side, there’s the upcoming ZZ ver.Ka and the GM Sniper Custom. The frame looks like the RX-78 ver.2 and follows the old-school MSV look. And then there’s several P-Bandai stuff like the MG Hazel, MG GM Command and MG Sandrock Custom.

There wasn’t too many interesting gunpla-related stuff, other than the Hobby Japan section. There’s some really nice custom builds, including the Thunderbolt version Acguy.

I took plenty of non-gunpla photos which can be viewed here.
