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.”

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

Gundam Beargguy Family Build Competition

beargguy-f-familySunday January 1st, 2017

From 12PM to 5PM

Animeggroll will bring in 2017 with a fun filled Gundam Build Competition. The Beargguy Family build will be a 4 hour build that will showcase the true creative juices that typically flow the day after New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The competition will consist of the High Grade Beargguy F model kit. The builders will be given 4 hours to build and modify the model to their own vision. This build will differ from previous builds and require that at a minimum 90% of the model must be a part of the final product. The final product of the build must also represent the essence and nature of the Beargguy F model Kit. The judging will be done by the builders themselves. Each builder will be provided a card with all of the contestant numbers on it except for their own. Each builder will select the winner and once all of the selections are made, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced.

The playing field is the same as before. Each builder will be provided a working space of 1.5 X 3 feet and are allowed to use any material as long as it fits into that space.  The only restrictions is  that there will not be any spray painting allowed.

The entry fee for this build competition is $15. The entry deadline is Thursday December 29th, 2016 by the end of business hour (9 PM).  No late entries will be allowed. There will a maximum of 14 builders slots open for the competition.
