Build Competition - Gunpla Builders Society



Every Kelowna ComiCon, we host the Gunpla Builders Society - Build Competition. In the previous event, they saw over 100 builders either competing, participating in how-to panels, or building for the fun of it.



We can confirm that we will have guest appearances from world-class builders who will be building on site and hosting a Mecha-Panel in the ComiCon panel rooms as well.

Stay tuned for their detailed-announcement!
