The GunPla Builders World Cup is an annual international competition that pits Gundam Modelers from 13 different regions in the world for the title of the best GunPla Builder. Though no magic particle exists to make model kits move, the competition focuses on the hard work and dedication that fans of GunPla all over the world put into these amazing plastic model kits. Competitions will be held within each region to choose a representative who will win a FREE round trip to Japan in December for the World Cup finals.
The U.S. regional qualifiers will include Live Events at the below locations, and an online component which will be announced later in the year. More information including rules and contact information for the U.S. can be located at http://www.bluefincorp.com/
