Purchases from ACGHK 2011
Just a quick update here. I've bought a few things from the ACGHK 2011 event which is currently ongoing until Tuesday night. More details after the jump!
Black★Rock Shooter Artbook. A compilation of artwork from the original character designer and illustrator huke, along with many other artsists. Apparently it's identical to the one that is sold in the recent Comiket C79 event but localised, however I need to check on this.
HGUC 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam Ecopla, basically a Gunpla kit made of recycled plastic, hence the black for most stuff except for the beam effect of beam sabre. Even the polycaps are black as well. There is also a special decal sheet with lots of "GUNPLA" signs on it. This is no new kit, but it's not the most common kit out there for sure. Will most likely do a post for it once I get around to build it.
Gundam Legacy manga. There are only 3 volumes in total, which makes it pretty short. It appears to be a compilation of several short stories involving side characters (from one of the anime series or those who appear exclusively in games). The seemingly heavy depiction of grunt units over Gundams is surely what tickles my interest ^^; Speaking of buying manga, I think the last time I've bought manga for myself was probably sola way back in ACGHK 2009.
As for the coverage photos, I need some time to sort them out. I hope I won't procrastinate and take too long to get the posts out!
