30 Day Gundam Build Finals

Anther build competition is in the books now and again we saw great results from the 30 Day Gundam Build. Competitors were given 30 days to build the model of their choice. All builders showed us all how much they loved building these models, some projects were just so big that 30 days just wasn’t enough time and others showed off the special talents of the builders.

Animeggroll wants to thank all of the builders for their hard work. The judge for having a very tough task of selecting the top 3 and all of his hard work at putting together a judging format. The photographer for her great job of giving us some wonderful shots of the special work.

Many of these great builds are currently on display in the glass cases back in the Gundam area in the store. Come on by and check out all the incredible builds.

Here are pictures from the event.

International Towel Day- Donate and Save May 20th

In honor of International Towel Day (May 25th), on Saturday May 20th donate a roll of paper towels for the Crestwood Animal Shelter and save 20% on any one item in the store.

International Towel Day (http://www.towelday.org) is May 25th. We will be having our fifth towel day at Animeggroll on Saturday May 20th. Bring in a full roll of paper towels to donate to the Crestwood Animal Shelter . You will receive 20% off any one item in the store. One discount per person. No holds, preorders, special orders, no returns, cannot be combined with any other discounts.1

Why is there a towel day? It is a tribute to Douglas Adams who describe the importance of towels in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

“A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have “lost.” What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.”

 

—Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Figures, Figures and Even More Figure

We just received a new shipment of open figures from Japan. There are lots of great characters in this group of over 250. You have to see them to believe it.

Gundam at St. Louis Science Center

On Friday April 7th Animeggroll and Bluefin Distribution will present a Gundam Entry Grade build experience for novice or interested model builders at the St. Louis Science Center as part of the First Friday Anime Invasion.

Animeggroll will also present the below panel from 7:30 to 8 PM.

Gundam Science: Mech Suits in the Real World

With over 30 years of Gundam and other Mech anime, many people want to know when we will have giant mech suits of our own. We will look if Gundams will ever walk the earth, and if not what sort of mech will take their place.

There will be two build sessions for new or never before but interested builders. Each builder will be given an entry grade gundam and 45 minutes to build the kit. Entry grade kits are exactly what they should like, they are easy to build models that stand over 5 inches tall when done. They require no special tools, glue or paint and will give new interested builders a taste of what a new model building experience is like.

The sessions will run from 6:45 to 7:25 PM and 8:10 to 8:55 PM. There will be slots for 15 builders each session. Animeggroll will have two experienced builders in each session to make sure any questions or help will be taken care of.

Animeggroll would like to thank Bluefin Distribution for providing all of the Entry Grade Gundam models for the event.

Any participants in the event will have their pictures taken for internet display and will be required to agree
