When I’ve started my journey of playing and exploring gundam in Singapore, the obsession of gundam Singapore enthusiasts was much lesser than what it is now.
So many people have now got into the world of gunpla Singapore and are buying and playing with gundam kits in Singapore that have not been in this overwhelming number back then.
Recently, I have been asked by one of the readers of this blog an interesting question. He asked me the reason of why gundam is so popular in Singapore?
The question is interesting for 2 reasons:
- I know so many countries around the world where no one has even a remote idea about what gundam and gunpla is. I’m not talking about small countries in fact. Even big countries where hobby gaming is highly popular otherwise are not really aware about gundam.
- On the contrary, as I have mentioned above my own experience of looking at the amazing rise in number of enthusiasts who are now interested in exploring gundam in Singapore.
This makes the question very interesting and worth pondering what could be the reason that gundam has become so popular in Singapore? Its not merely important because its interesting in fact. The question is very important for new gundam enthusiasts who have either started their journey of exploring the world of gunpla or are looking forward to do so. Even the seasoned gundam lovers, sometimes need to know to re-affirm themselves about their choice of spending time, money and efforts with gundam.
