EA Con 2011 – First Brunei Gunpla Competition 2011

If you remember the previous CH-Toy Nation Gunpla survey, they are now open for registration. Expressive Art Convention (partner with CH Toy Nation) will host the Gunpla contest on July 16th (Saturday) and 17th (Sunday) 2011 at Asma Hotel, Jerudong. For your information, the competition is divided into 3 categories which you may refer below.
For category A and B, I am a bit confusing but disappointed as well. They didn’t seem to mention clearly if you can work on scratch built and use Kotobukiya option parts or weapons units on the Gunpla idea. I already sent email for clarification so expect latest update from my blog.
I do understand they wanted to restrict modelers using 3rd party resin and conversion kit. However, I don’t see why Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby exclusive/limited kits have to be restricted as well in 1/144 category. Those kits were officially made by Bandai, not to mention they are Furoku and High Grade kit too which does not consider as resin listing. I do not see any reason why it will harm the competitions anyway when you can see more great 1/144 challenging work compare to 1/100 category.
What I am saying may offend the judges and organizers. However, as a modeler, I am hoping to see others can unlock their full potentials and show their Gunpla idea work in both A & B category because those parts of the important key resources. Why only open categories get all benefit and make both A & B category boring?
