The toy and model conglomerate Bandai has announced that it will hold “Gunpla Builders World Cup 2011,” the first competition dedicated to Gundam plastic models in 13 international regions, between July and December. The regions of Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, America, and Italy will participate.

The world championships for this year’s event will be held in Hong Kong this December during the Gunpla Expo World Cup Tour Hong Kong 2011. There will be two courses in Japan ― an open course for ages 15 and above and an junior course for 14 and below. The preliminary rounds will run from July 25 to September 9.

Bandai judges will determine the first round in Japan, followed by a second round during which the first-round winners will be put on display at Bandai’s event booth at the 51st All Japan Hobby Show in October. The judging for the second round will be by both public balloting and Bandai’s judges. The third and final round for Japan will be at the tentatively titled “Gunpla Expo World Cup Japan 2011” this fall.

On the other hand, the life-size statue of Gundam appears in a 30-second TV commercial for Nissin’s Cup Noodles. The CM features the song “Number One Yaro!” by The Cro-Magnons . It began airing throughout Japan on 14 July.
