Vanpla, VFG and Ages Three & Up are proud to host the Capital City Comic Con snap fit building competition at the Gunpla Booth in Crystal Garden. The basis of the contest is to show off your building skills and creativity. There will be three main categories that entrees will judged on.

  • Kitbashing – Creativity
  • Build Quality/Cleanliness, and
  • Panel Line and Paint/Marker Application Quality

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd based on scores in all categories. Additional prizes may be given dependent on the how creative the entree is.

To Enter the Snap Fit contest for Gunpla (Gundam Model), you must have purchased a new kit from vendors of CAPITAL CITY COMIC CON.  Or from a retail store in the downtown core who sell Gunpla.

Register with your purchase at the Vanpla booth in Crystal Garden during the hours of main event. Then proceed to snap fit it to the best of your abilities. Kit bashing is highly recommended, and extra points for creativity!

  • Kits must be submitted to the Vanpla / VFG booth by 1pm Sunday to qualify
  • You may use any of your own building tools (cutters, glue, etc.), however any parts that are used as pieces fixed to the final entry piece must be purchased at the show or from local shops that are sponsors of the event. For example, you may buy several kits and splice them together.
