This is your chance to show us what your Gunpla can really do. Make us laugh, make us cry, but keep it short: 3 minutes max. The video needs to feature a Gundam kit that you built. How you set the scene or create the story arc is totally up to. Videos submitted without a Gundam in them will not accepted. No tutorials or “how to videos”, only cinematic magic.

How to Enter:

Make sure you include the link to the video you uploaded on that form and fill out ALL the other fields or else your entry will not be accepted. We will then place your video on www.youtube.com/hobbylinktv.

We will also post participants videos we particularly like on our site over the competition period.

Shenami Cutie

Shenami Cutie

At the behest of some friends, I put up a toy design on Patchtogether in the hopes to get it produced as an actual product. The hat comes off as a separate monster and reveals a hidden surprise. The arms are removable as well so you can design your own tattoo.

To get this into production, first it has to get enough votes on Patchtogether. If it gets enough votes, the Patchtogether crew figures out a price point and puts the toy up for pre-sale. Should it receive enough pre-orders, the toy goes in to production. Head on over to the site to put in your vote and to check out some other views of the cutie.

Hanya Halloween

Hanya Halloween

I’m entering in this year’s Design By Humans Halloweek contest. This is my entry. The design is based on the traditional Hanya masks in Noh theater, but with a little twist. I wrote a little story to go along with it, too:

Little Lucy didn’t manage to get much Halloween candy this year. Most of the parents locked and bolted their doors as soon as they saw her. Many went insane from the sight of what she called her “Betrayed Fairy Princess Costume.” Was it a costume or a demon made real? No one ever got close enough to ever find out.

On the plus side, no one dared trick Lucy this year.

If you like it, you can vote for me here!
