DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – It all started as a hobby. We guess almost everyone has watched at least few Gundam series during their childhood days. Before, only few can afford to buy a Gundam plastic kit. So one can consider himself lucky to have a few on his cabinet.
Gundam TV series started in 1979. These anime series feature giant robots commonly known as Mobile Suits piloted by humans during a war setting. There is a large array of series aired on the television since its first release. Among the most popular are Gundam Wing, Gundam 00, Gundam Seed Destiny, Gundam G, Gundam Unicorn, and Gundam Build Fighters.
Each one has a unique storyline, like the operation meteor of the wing series in which five gundams have been sent to earth by space colonies as a form of retaliation in response to the assassination of their political leader, the quest of Banahger Links in discovering the hidden truth behind the Laplace‘s box of the Gundam Unicorn series, and the journey of Sei Lori and Reiji to be the best gunpla fighter of the tournament.
The latest series is Iron-Blooded Orphans. It was named as such because the main characters are orphans.
Since then, the course of Japan toy and hobby industries changed. Bandai decided to make plastic model kits of Gundam mobile suits (commonly known as Gunpla).
Gundam and Gunpla kits reputation spread among Asian countries, namely Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea and China. Its popularity also reached the Middle East region.
A Gunpla kit comes with a Japanese manual which is easy to understand. It has also the runners which consists of the parts to be cut and assembled, the decals, and the stickers.
Up to that point, we were just passionate Gunpla builders. This passion kept growing and turned into an idea of putting up a business. Thus, JustDK was born, a hub where all fellow Gundam builders can find all what serves that hobby. All what relates to Gundam is found under one roof. Our first public apparition in Paperworld Middle East in March 1-3, 2016 followed by our participation in the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) 2016 last April 7-9, 2016 were stunning. We were so overwhelmed with the huge number of anime fanatics from all over UAE who passed by our stall. It was so flattering to see the smiles on their faces while taking pictures of our Gundam displays. We held contests also during the MEFCC event like the SD/BB “Time Attack” Building Contest and the Cleanest Build Competition. We had promotions and giveaways. Our hobby suddenly turned into a service driven to provide people something they have been longing to have at an affordable cost.
