GPMoD Giveaway #0001

I felt kinda cheesy asking for donations to get the hardware and things I need for the site, (Remember, I'm currently unemployed) when the site doesn't have any content yet... So I figured the best way to get things rolling would be to have a giveaway for people who donate. I'm not asking for much. Get enough people together, and even a trivial amount of money from each person, is more than enough. I'm hoping that each of you can find it in your hearts (and wallets) to donate at least $5 (USD). Every increment of $5 you donate, will be another chance to win something. Nonetheless, don't think of it as some kind of raffle; you're donating to my site, and as a show of appreciation, I'm giving you a chance to win something cool in return. This is just the first of many giveaways. As more and more people come, the giveaways will get bigger.

Okay, with that said... Now on to the giveaway. For this first giveaway, I got sucked into a sort of Gundam theme. A large number of magazines that are covering SEED Destiny, as well as some Z Gundam movie coverage, and a couple of PS2 games. (The PS2 games are both Japanese language, and will require a modchip or swapdisk to play on a US console. They are, however, very easy to play, requiring little actual knowledge of Japanese. All other prizes are Japanese-language magazines. Unless you wakaru the nihongo, you're basically getting them for the pretty pictures. On the up-side, they _are_ chock full of pretty pictures. And most come with atleast a cool poster. :P)

Cosmic Era PS2: (1 up for grabs!)
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny: Generation of C.E. (JP)

You know how much I dislike GSD, so when I say that this is the best Gundam turn-based strategy game ever can fully appreciate my meaning. It covers SEED and Destiny storylines, as well having MSV and Astray stories. Everything about this game just rocks. Especially the real-time rendered combat 'cutscenes', as you've likely seen me post captures of previously.

Uchuu Senki PS2: (2 up for grabs!)
Mobile Suit Gundam: One Year War (JP)

Best real-time Gundam game...ever.

Newtype Prize Pack: (3 up for grabs!)
May, June, July 2005 Issues of Newtype Japan

These issues each come with very nice Gundam SEED Destiny 'Character file' booklets for Zaft, Phantom Pain, and Eternal factions. July issue comes with a double-sided SEED Destiny pencil board featuring Kira and Lacus. The July issue also has some nice coverage of the new Z Gundam movie. (Including a Quattro/Hyakushiki cover.)

Animage: (2 up for grabs!)
Animage June 2005

Athrun on cover, SEED Destiny Clearfile. Lucky bastards, I bought three and one didn't come with a clearfile. So I guess I'm SOL.

Newtype: (1 up for grabs!)
Newtype July 2005

See description of July issue in Newtype Prize Pack above.

Modeler's Prize Pack: (3 up for grabs!)
Dengeki Hobby June 2005

Features some great Gundam models, and comes with a little Zoids kit!

Hobby Japan June 2005, July 2005
Both feature a lot of great Gundam kits. The July issue covers an incredible model of Shinn Asuka (Also featured on that issue's poster), and a huge Votoms special, including a 1:1 scale Scopedog some guy made.

In the next couple of days, I'll add cover scans of the magazines and stuff, as well as some pictures of what comes with them, etc. doesn't have its own paypal account at the moment, so I'll be using the Tangible Imagination one, and will start taking donations sometime this week after I determine the goal for the giveaway. (I will also post further information at that time.) The giveaway will be open to anyone who wants to help with the site, but if you don't live in the US, shipping may be problematic. (I'll figure that out when it happens.)


nani sore?
A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
