As a kid before the Master Grades came out, I’ve always coveted the NG 1/100 Gundam Seed kits. Unfortunately I never got around to them, but then I didn’t need to since I already have all the MG versions. However, when Robo Toy Fest rolled around last time, I couldn’t resist grabbing this nigh-complete built kit for a mere $5. I figured it would do well for some paint practice and and custom work.
The final day. Anime Expo 2014 is just about done, we’ve waited a year for this since last July and now it’s about to pass. The last day is always a half day; the Exhibit Hall closes at 3PM and the attendance dwindles a bit, along with the amount of panels and exhibits.
As surreal as the experience has been, we didn’t forget about our chance to finally grab a good load of merch today, since Day 4 is prime time for that. Usually the good stuff is all sold out and we’re left with the leftover goods, but hey ‘most everything is on sale so if we do find something nice, we won’t have to bust our wallets for it.
Day 3 – probably the most eventful and entertaining day yet. Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7 screens today, so it’s finally time for our armor to live up to its purpose. Given that it is a three-hour panel, we won’t be doing much else other than the usual Exhibit Hall and cosplay oogling.
Our second rodeo at AX this year, something I looked forward to gladly because we didn’t have a soul-crushing line to wait through today. Given that we’ll be attending all four days this year, it’s refreshing to think that we still have two more days, no need to rush things.
The big day finally came, and through all the cosplay preparations, I didn’t get as much sleep as I would have liked before a big convention like this. Either way, another year at AX means another series of jaw-dropping cosplay and seas of anime to gawk at.
