Plamodel Radicon Show 2006 coverage - Part 1

I attended the All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show 2006 on Friday with several staff members from the company and got to see tons of really cool stuff that will be released in the near future. The show takes place from the 19th -22nd October in the 9th hall of Makuhari Messe convention center in Tokyo. The first two days are only open for industry people while the last two days in the weekends are open for the public. The show is mainly for showcasing the latest and upcoming items for wholesalers and retailers to place their orders for as well as announcing upcoming items. Products on display are mostly of plastic models and radio control toys, but there are several companies there such as Bandai, Wave, and Kotobukiya showcasing their latest and upcoming action figures and PVC models, as well as plastic kits. I've taken over 500 pics at the show and split them into two parts for my coverage. Pictures that I took are mainly on stuff that I find interesting and of course stuff that I like. Part 2 contains some random pics of the show of train dioramas, remote control cars, tanks, and planes, etc.

Some of the upcoming items revealed at the show and in Part 1 of my coverage include:

SDF-1 Macross - 24cm tall, completed prepainted and transformable model, made of diecast metal, PVC, and ABS, retails for 15,540 yen with tax and out by end of December.
Lineup of various types of Tachikoma kits from Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex.
