Zombster is pleased to announce that they will be running the first Bandai GunPla Builders World Cup - Brisbane Qualifier this year through the Brisbane Supanova event happening on the 4th - 6th of November at the RNA Showgrounds. Zombster is very excited to bring the qualifier to Brisbane and hopes to increase the Brisbane presence at the 2012 Australian finals in Sydney.
They're still ironing out the details for the event, but wanted to make sure that you have plenty of time to prepare your entries. You can submit your entry form here. You will also find the current rules and regulations regarding the event as well as the category definitions. A brief explanation of the categories:
For entries built out of box with no modification or scratch building and no dioramas. Painting and official Gundam decals are encouraged. One entry per person.
Open for any type of kit remodeling, scratch building is allowed for additional parts to incorporate with the kit. Multiple entries allowed per person.
As with the Sydney finals, there are also matching junior categories for those 14 and under.
As Brisbane Supanova is a 3-day event, Zombster kindly ask everyone to bring their entries on Friday, 4th of November while Supanova’s doors are open, 1-7 PM. It is highly recommended that if you are going to attend the Supanova event to purchase a weekend pass for easy (read: easier) entry on Saturday and Sunday. People’s Choice votes will only be accepted on Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM. The winners will be announced Sunday afternoon.
Please use the official announcement at GAF for questions and comments. Zombster are open to suggestions and will be announcing further information regarding the awards soon.
Addendum by Gundam Australia:
Gundam Australia are proud to announce that in conjunction with and infinite thanks to Zombster, Hobbyco, and Bandai, we will be presenting Zombster's Gundam workshop throughout the convention!
This will really be a great opportunity for Brisbane's anime fans, Otaku, and otherwise casually interested Domo-kun T-shirt sporting folks to try their hand at some gunpla all for the cost of admission only!
After the success of the recent Gundam Australia Gunpla workshop at this year's QMHE, we are thrilled to be presented with the opportunity to hone our skills in workshop presentation and share our passion on such a big scale!
