Yesterday was the big day for the long-awaited Gunplar get together with fellow bloggers American Salaryman, Buster from Plamo Addiction, Gundam Guy and myself at the 1/1 Gundam in Shizuoka. Gundam Guy and myself took the Shinkansen south from Tokyo while ASM and Buster did the same but came north from Osaka and Nagoya, respectively. We spent a good amount of time staring upwards at the metal giant as well as standing in line for one purpose or another.
I have seen the 1/1 when it was in Shiokaze park in Odaiba last year but this year it has been erected with a beam saber in its hand as opposed to on its backpack. Seeing it with people who feel the same way about gunpla as I do was rather special for me and we took our time to take in all that was the 1/1 Real Gundam project.
