As Angel mentioned on our FB page, this is the 2nd spot in our “TGG Tour”. A few weeks ago, a group of us went up to NorCal to hit up Tatsu Hobby’s spring contest the Blue and Yellow Ball. This past weekend, along with new Washington State TGG Transplant Mike Wine; Angel and I went up and competed in this VERY large show. I believe this was the first year of an official “Gundam” sub category within the Sci-Fi umbrella. And within Gundam, this was further split into 3 categories – 1/100 and larger, 1/144 and smaller, and Out of Box which required instruction manuals. And due to the overwhelming number of gunpla entries, I believe they further split the categories into modded and non modded. It was very cool to meet some folks from r/Gunpla as well as folks from Washington State Gunpla, The Sleeves – Oregon Gunpla Community, and some folks from Vanpla that made the early border run from Vancouver. This was a very impressive showing not just in numbers; but the quality of the builds. There are some VERY talented modelers up here. Hopefully some of these guys will come down to SCGMC and show some of us what’s what. I had a great time meeting and chatting with people while whoring out our Kampfer/Shiki/Wing Build shirts. I didn’t get a chance to talk with everyone, but I did get to chat with a good number of folks. So hopefully I’ll be able to come up for a future show. I gotta work on my damn skills first so that I can actually be competitive! These are some great people!

I hope to have gotten pictures of every kit that was on display. I apologize if I missed one, but there was just so many kits. Enjoy the pictures after the jump!
