Gunpla Kit Information
Anime Expo this year is going to be crazy, especially with this Gunpla contest. I'm sure a lot of devoted fans will be rushing to enter.
I really admire those who spend a good deal of time creating these Gunpla, and customizing the colors. They look so beautiful when completed.
