When Martin introduced me to the Gundam series (Gundam Unicorn), many months ago it was the beginning of a learnt appreciation and love for the franchise. Thing is, it wasn’t my first time to watch Gundam really as I had tried watching Gundam Seed many years ago. I was “turned off” with that series, hence me having no interest at all, that is until THE Gundam Unicorn.
And so, after 6 download episodes, BANKEE Trading (Bandai’s Philippine distributor) and Toy Kingdom organized a special and exclusive screening of Ep 7. Gundam Unicorn: Over The Rainbow at SM North Edsa last May 18, 2014. WOOT! It was a one time movie screening that all Gundam UC fans didn’t want to miss! (for those who may have missed it, I believe you can download the last episode) Aside from the exclusive screening, it was also the Gundam Model Kit Contest for this year. Which my significant other joined the competition on the New Challenger Open Category.
After the pure awesomeness of the film (no spoilers here), we headed straight to SM North Edsa Annex at the activity center. Check out photos below for PURE GUNDAM GEEKY LOVEEEE!
My significant other’s birthday turned out to be simply just awesome. While we were unlucky to have won the raffle or the competition, we were happy to have a photo op with the people behind the successful event.
*p.s if you know these two gentlemen’s names, please don’t hesitate to mention them in the comments section.
To say that we had fun during the event is an understatement, as it was simply one of our highlights for the month of May. This birthday boy couldn’t be luckier than he already was that day, as he had been eyeing on the mega size age-1 normal ever since it came out. It sells for P7,000 at Toy Kingdom and Toys R Us, but it went on sale on the 18th (only) for only P3,500!
