Gundam UC Premier Reviews & Message from the Stage at Makuhari Cineplex

As reported mid last month, three sessions of Premier reviews and message from the stage were held in Tokyo and Chiba (two sessions) on February 20th and 27th respectively.

Gundam Dot Info has report and images from the session held in Chiba - Makuhari Cineplex Cinema 12 to be exact. It was initially said that certain surprise elements were going to be included for this particular stop. ^^

Display of sample work of various MSs from the movie featured in already released issues of Dengeki Hobby. Diorama sets featuring combat scenes from the movie can be seen as well.

1/48 Unicorn Gundam Head Display Model, video promotion of the movie and trading machine for Digital Grade Gundam UC Vol. 1.

Limited "Gundam UC" books for autograph on sales.
The latest issue of Dengeki Hobby and Gundam Ace were available as well.

Kadokawa Publication was distributing free sample of "Gundam UC Bandeshine" (? - 機動戦士ガンダムUC バンデシネ), a new "Gundam UC" manga that follows the storyline of the movie.

A special session called "Unicorn Manga Dojo" featuring (from left): Hideki Owada (mangaist), Hukui Harutoshi (story) and Norimitsu Yasushi (mangaist).
The guests had to answer questions from the floor through illustrations ^^

Haro with a person in it, and a Dom with "Sleeves".
The meaning of these images will be disclosed in next month's issue of "Gundam Ace".

Many people were lining up after the premier to purchase the early release version of "Gundam UC" Blu-ray Disc and related books, as well as to obtain the theater pamphlet.
