Gunpla Builders World Cup qualifying comes to Otakon

Gunpla Builders World Cup qualifying rounds aren't just for the west coast. At Otakon 2013 (August 9 to 11) the GBWC will be making their first of two east coast stops (the other being New York Comic Con / New York Anime Festival in October). Builders will be able to bring their finished kit right to the Bluefin booth (IND08) once they've filled out an entry form and emailed it to first. They'll be judged for prizes which could mean a trip to Japan to represent North America at the world competition for one skilled Gunpla builder. 

And that's not all! If you want something you can actually do at Otakon the GBWC and Bluefin will be hosting a Gunpla speed building contest. Signup starts at 10:00AM on August 10 in the Art Show area with the first 20 contestants being given a kit they can keep to build on the spot starting at 10:30AM. Builders will be given 150 minutes to build their kits however they desire. Water will be provided for decal application and you'll be allowed to paint if you bring your own. This isn't just about building quickly; builds will be judged on different criteria such as how clean the build is, how well the decals are applied, and how it's presented to the judges. For complete details see the Otakon info page.
