Ganmetall Celsius is really an impressive vinyl toy by Rotobox. I’ve admired the creativity behind this winged superhero ever since I saw pictures of OG and Zero Degrees Celsius on their debut at the SDCC.
I’m more into collecting anime figures than into designer vinyl but when I saw Ganmetall Celsius Tribute to Gundam RX78-2, I’m thinking of getting one for myself and start collecting vinyl again. But I was too late, it was sold out since only 3 of this amazing figures came out. T.T Oh, I just saw Ganmetall Celsius Tribute to Gatchaman’s Ken is priced at $280 and it’s an edition of 10 so I’m sure Ganmetall Celsius Tribute to Gundam RX78-2 edition of 3 is a lot more expensive. I guess I couldn’t have afforded it even if it’s still available because of the premium price. ^^; (There’s also Ganmetall Celsius Tribute to Gatchaman’s Joe, edition of 5 (price undisclosed), which is also sold out.) But this is really an awesome looking toy not only for Gundam fans but for all collectors as well since the craftsmanship is truly beautiful. I hope to get my own Celsius soon.
The 1st Ganmetall Celsius Custom Show/Contest will be held at Chef’s Bistro, 94 Sct. Gandia corner Tomas Morato Quezon City, Philippines on January 30, 2010. Entrance is free. I’m sure this exciting event will be such a hit among artists and collectors and even to those who haven’t discovered the wonderful world of toys. ^^
Limited slots are available for this event so to reserve yours, send an email with your name and contact details to email@example.com.
