GBWC Philippines 2011 "Official Rules"


GBWC Philippines 2011 Poster

The "official" rules and regulations of the up and coming Gunpla Builders World Cup 2011 Philippines, is now finally released! Gunpla Builders World Cup formerly known as Bandai Model Kit World Cup, Bandai Action Kit Universal Cup and Bandai Action Kit Asian Cup is the "only official" Bandai Gundam model kit competition for the international Gunpla community.

It has been renamed numerous times already since it's inception back in 2003, but has retained the system of getting the "top new modelers"  of each of the participating countries and compete with each other at the world championships at HongKong.

I am personally not really sure if I could join this year as unlike last year where I entered and won with my " Gilgamesh Project" in the expert category. This year they would only allow me to join in the OOTB special category which does not allow modifications, custom decals and dioramas or custom bases. However I am sure to cover this event and share with you all the happenings, joining or not.

Anyways here are now the OFFICIAL RULES from BANKEE that they just finally released.
