Anime Festival Asia 2009


Held on 21/22 Nov @ Suntec City Singapore

Just some pics of the Gundam competition and other toy products on display. Didn't take as many pics as compared to last year. This year exhibitors/retailers were significantly lesser than last yr. Exclusive items were also kinda [sign in to see URL] didn't get a single toy from this event which is a first.

If you ask me, it was not worth the ticket price, unless you are interested in the performances by the various Japanese artistes.

You can find out more about the event
]here

Enough talk, on to the pics!

Attended the talk by Danny Choo , if you dont know who he is check out [sign in to see URL] probably one of most famous otaku blogger in the world.

He wore his stormtrooper armour and did the stormtrooper dance. Pretty cool fellow, gave a talk about how he made his interest in japanese pop culture into a business.

Looks like you're getting a lot of use out of that F1.8 lens, JuN! emoticon

Danny Choo, yeah, I visit his blog once in a while when I'm looking around for Figma news.

Btw, those small SIC figures, Kiwami figures I think they're called, I ordered them all. I should be getting Zanki & Hibiki next week from HLJ.

Re: Anime Festival Asia 2009


haha yeah, it's a much faster lens as compared to the kit lens, the large aperture makes it easier to take pictures in low light as well.

Wow, u even ordered those Kiwami figures? I didn't get them cos I already got the normal SIC versions.

I decided to pass on SIC, b/c too expensive and too many at this point. These Kiwami figures are about $15 shipped, so they seem to be a great bargain considering a GI Joe figure is about $12 (with taxes). Also, the line just started this year, so only a few to collect at this point. I've heard nothing except good things about the smaller line.

Yep, so far the Kiwami figures have got good reviews. Price factor is a plus as compared to the bigger counterparts.

I skipped them as I didn't want too many different interpretations of the same characters.

Wish I could've gone for this, if only for a chance to hang out with my other cosplaying friends and to make use of my Emperor Kiva costume.

Aside from that, yeah I agree it doesn't look too worthwhile for anyone who isn't there for cosplaying or performance related stuff.

P.S. I think Danny Choo's an idiot. Just a personal opinion emoticon.
