JOINT MECHA Exhibit Attack!

TOYCON 2012 was rocked by the presence of two of the Philippines’ premier model kit enthusiast clubs IPMS (International Plastic Modeler’s Society) Philippines and Mechapinoy. The clubs went on a joint operation showcasing the best of the best scale models from the country’s best modelers. A number of the kits displayed were winning pieces from National and in-house competitions from both clubs.

The exhibit was set up inside the gallery section of the TOYCON, with the clubs providing 4 huge display cases full of model kits across various genre. Displays include scale model aircraft, armor, ships and infantry from the IPMS side. Mechapinoy on the other hand showcased mecha kits from various mecha series such as GUndam (most notably), Macross, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tarnsformers and many more.

The aim of the exhibit is to raise public awareness about the perks of getting into the scale model building hobby. A lot of people are daunted on getting started but friendly club members were there on location to answer questions regarding the hobby.
