BAKUC Sydney 2010 Wrapups
« on: August 09, 2010, 09:11:52 PM »

Howdy folks,

Well it is good to be back online! Let's start things off with a bang shall we?

I've just returned from the first Australian BAKUC in Sydney and I have HEAPS of pics to upload! What really blew me away was the level of talent and skill on show by our own homegrown Aussie Gunplars! There was some truly fantastic work on display.

Sit tight for a swag of pics.

In the mean time feel free to post up any pics of your own if you went along.

A big thanks to Hobbyco and Bandai for the event, and a shout out to the guys from Zombster. It was really encouraging to see how many kits were being purchased on the day. Well done guys!

Great to be back guys! Had a great time at Smash! even though it was a struggle to get an entry after it was sold out! I personally met mokanaman and scott from ghostofzeon.... I wasn't able to catch up with you sonar! I do have some photos but they seem insignificant compared to the ones already posted.

I certainly didn't miss your entry however  ;) Nice work!

Please post some of your pics! The more the merrier!

Oh, thank you sonar! Which one of my entries did you like the most? Must have been that way....what time were you around the display? See the awards ceremony? Did Hemish enter? So much to talk about lol!

The pics will be coming very shortly!
Oh, on a side note, on the entry bag there was a leaflet advertising the website 'www.gundam-forum.com.au'
It seems like we might have competition, but we all know where we'll be sticking lmao :)

I cant seem to be able to reply on the forum testing page :(
My main suggestion would be to change the site theme. I've got one in mind!

Link me to the page you are havig trouble with and I'll have a look :)

Link me to the theme you like as well and I'll install it. I'm working on a custom theme as the default theme but its taking time... :(

Post pics of your entries so I can choose my favourite! I only remember noticing one on the table.

Unfortunately I couldn't hang around for the awards and I didn't get to meet Alan or Scott which I'm bummed about. After a couple of hours of taking photos and looking at the stalls the kids had had enough and I had to bail. Next year I might have to send the family to the zoo while I get my gunpla on.

Yeah I think we all saw the flyer. The site is run by Hobbyco and good on them I say. They are doing a fantastic job of promoting gunpla in Australia and with the extended outage of Gundam Australia I guess they saw a void. I have put a lot of time, effort, and money into the forum for the last three years to support and encourage the hobby in this country and I'm really glad to have the loyalty of our members, so thanks Zahmad, and thank you to all of the members of the old forum for your support. I hope to see you here soon!

and we're back. was hoping that GA wouldn't stay dead after it went down. it was the only place i could talk to fellow australians online in a community based around gunpla.

sadly i didn't get to go to SMASH, would have love to go. but it will have to wait till next year  :P i've seen the photo's and there were some great entries. the black kshatriya and pink acguy were some of my favourites hehe.

That's correct Sonar!  Don't worry about the posts - they were sort of bunching up as well! 8) The GM was my main entry actually. Finished it 1 hour before I submitted it on the Friday! Did you enter anything yourself Sonar?

Hey guys! Welcome back GAF!

I had a great time at BAKUC. It's great to finally have a modelling event where us Gunpla modellers aren't scoffed at because they aren't a tank or a plane.

I wont repost my links as Sonar has them above but at the moment the only real coverage it has been getting is via my site, Alan's YouTube series and the Hobbyco Facebook page.

If there is anyone else with pics of the comp / awards ceremony, then please post them. I'd love to see how other people saw the event!

Welcome back Scott! I'm disappointed I missed you gus at BAKUC. Next year hey? Congratulations on your places!

I transferred all the pics off my camera last night. I took a pic of every entry but unfortunately about half of them are out of focus. Funny.. they looked ok on the camera screen :( Will post some pics tonight.

Hey guys,
Scott Gave me the heads up about this joint, its great to be together again. Bakuc was amazing, everybody got a long and
as modelers we were treated extremely well. As Scott said we were not put down due to our choice of topic unlike other events. My video have already been posted in this thread...



Oh, on a side note, on the entry bag there was a leaflet advertising the website 'www.gundam-forum.com.au'
I believe Ryan from Hobby co said something about starting his own forum so there will be lots of competition...
