Okay, I went to the Ikebukuro event today (with the 1/1 Valk), with Tochiro, Save, some of our friends, and, er, Minmay (or at least an incredible simulation), and while it definitely had more WOW! factor than the Shibuya exhibit, I think I prefer the Shibuya one. Shibuya had more background and making-of type stuff, and focused more on the first series, whereas the Ikebukuro event was more video, music, and statues.
After the event, we went to the Nyan-Nyan Cafe, and all of us independently ordered the "Lynn Minmay," a blueberry drink, instead of the "Ranka Lee" (melon soda with ice cream), the "Sheryl Nome" (some pink soda - strawberry, maybe? - with an Oreo cookie on it), the "Super Galactic Man" (based on Alto, not sure what was in it), or the "Decul-CHA" (tea).
Then we went around collecting stamps for the stamp rally, went back to Shibuya, and turned them in, which netted us a free mini clearfile.
All in all, a good day.
Oh, and when you first walk in to the Ikebukuro event, there's a star map similar to the one at the opening of Frontier TV, but I think they calculated this one out a little better.
EDIT: Oh, and on the Valkyrie development wall chart, they used the Pink Pecker Team to represent the VF-11C. I laughed.
EDIT: And one more thing I thought was funny: The sign next to the Sheryl and Ranka statues saying, "Low-angle photos are prohibited." We don't want any panty-flashes, after all...
