Attention! Attention! May I have your attention, please.

Squeam (aka TimberNewtype on YouTube) and I have been working on a BIG undertaking of a project. Over the course of the last year with the release of many Master Grades related to Gundam Wing and Endless Waltz along with the continued releases of the hit manga series Glory of Losers and the novel series Frozen Tear Drop, the universe of Gundam Wing has experienced a resurgence in popularity! We wish to celebrate this reaffirmation of the Gundam series that started off a good portion of American interest in the Gundam franchise with a Group Build and a series of Competitions! Please like and follow our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/GundamRevivalProject) for further details after this posting.

The competitions have not had all of their details hammered out quite yet, but I wanted to get the ball rolling so everyone can start thinking and acquiring necessary kits and supplies.

Here are the details we have worked out so far for the competitions:

-Any Bandai original PLASTIC kit regardless of grade and scale will be accepted so long as it is from either Gundam Wing or Endless Waltz. A complete list of accepted kit will be generated within the next few days.

-There will be three categories for the competitions which will be judged and presented separately.

-Competition 1: Build a Bandai original Gundam Wing plastic kit of any scale or grade straight out of the box. Panel lining, seam removal, and top coats are accepted. Judging will be based on clean builds, sticker/marking placement, and over all appearance of the kit. Painting isn't aloud in this competition so as to open it up to beginners and lazy modelers alike. No decals other than what is provided in the original contents of the kit will be aloud.

-Competition 2: Build a Bandai original Gundam Wing plastic kit of any scale or grade. This is for everyone else. Build it, paint it, mark it, line it, then top coat it however you wish. The only limitations for this competition will be physical modification and kit bashing. We are celebrating Gundam Wing and the awesome designs from that series. So no mods, guys, just make the kit look the best it can. Custom paint schemes are accepted.

Competition 3: Pose your completed Bandai original Gundam Wing plastic kit or kits in an iconic or memorable pose from the anime TV/OAV series. This competition will be strictly judged on the power of the pose. We will take the limitations of SD's and older Wing kits into consideration when judging. Also, if a pose needs to be modified slightly due to the use of a MG EW kit in place of a TV version (seeing as all but the Wing Gundam have yet to be released) we will accept it so long as you explain the changes and why they are needed.

-Each of these competitions will eventually have their own thread within the forums and will have their own Event Page on our Facebook Page

-The Group Build will also have it's own thread and Event Page on Facebook. The Group build will be on going even after the competitions are over. The group build will be for those wanting to participate but not compete and it gives the judges a place when they can show their love for Gundam Wing without entering the competition.

None of this is fully set in stone yet, so please bare in mind that there will be changes and added details in the week or so to come!

Thank for reading, and I hope to see you ALL on Facebook joining the Gundam Wing Revival Project!

This would be so much cooler to me had I not already built all of my Wing EW MGs.

This sounds so awesome. And totally a reason for me to pick up another MG Epyon.

It doesn't have to be an MG, you can get a cheaper HG too. Like I said, everyone has got time before the competitions start to get what they need.

I know. But I really want to paint up a MG Epyon. Anyways. I'll pick one out once the list has been posted up.

THIS! I've already got the Wing models I want, so I won't be participating. I might be scoring a couple G-Units, if my luck allows it. Unless I can just enter an old model that I built a while ago?

I am seriously considering let in the G-Unit models, they are from the Wing Universe.
Like it says, there will be changes and updates to everything there with more details and such, I'll discuss the G-unit kits with Squeam and the other judges (once I figure out if they are judging or not :-P)

Hope so, or else I'm gonna have to be boring and just enter a model I've already got complete.

Oh i guess there is an unpainted cattegory

I thought you didn't paint exia

I don't, but there's like 3 different contests based around this. One of them is an out of the box build, I don't wanna be boring and enter a model I already did. I'm in the middle of Griepe Gundam and if the G-Unit models are allowed in some OOB contest I'll save Hyrda Gundam for it.

That being said, I will be painting one of my Exia's in my personal colors and style. I have everything, just haven't bothered starting.

Okay guys, Waiting on a couple E-mails from Squeam and from ED of 00GundamreviewsV2 on YouTube to have them check over the official rules for the First Competition. If they're good to go, so am I and that will be posted soon!

I was looking at the G-Unit kits in my Gunpla Catalog and decided they were just too awesome looking to leave out of the competitions! I hope there are enough entries that I get to see all of them!

Doubtful on that one, these G-Unit kits are like super rare. You'll be seeing Griepe in the ego zone soon enough.
