  1. Wow. Pretty dry month for mass-releases; guess Bandai's still recoiling from their PG release...

  2. If they keep doing more expensive P-Bandai recolored kits instead of better mass release kits I'm switching to bootlegs.

    Why would anyone pay double for a different colored kit when painting it is cheaper and more fun?

    1. I don't really see the point in switching to bootlegs as a form of protest.

      Besides, only the shiny ones are more expensive. Among the Trans-am releases, only the PG Trans-am raiser's slightly more expensive than its retail counterpart.

      I don't really know who buys stuff like this but I can't fault Bandai for wanting to cater to their customers

    2. the demand for P Bandai kits is insanely high in much of asian countries and parts of the United States where gunpla is popular. P bandai kits essentially allow those who straight build, a chance to have kits that are variants of others without needing to scratch build

    3. The P-Bandai kits are only in "high demand" because Bandai make them appear limited.
      They create the high demand to supply ratio by announcing beforehand that it is a limited release, creating the desire to obtain one at all costs. Only to announce later that they will make a second release. Thus giving the opportunity for any stragglers to pre-order the kit as well at the same high price. All the while they watch the numbers roll in and their profit ratio climb.

      Not too different from how the DeBeers group control and restrict the sales of diamonds to keep the flow low and the demand and prices high.

    4. if there is no special coating, which requires extra manufacturing processes, p-bandai is priced the same as regular issues at launch from the p-bandai site. if you get it through any other channel, its being markup by resellers and traders, you cant fault bandai for the high price in this case. i'm lucky to be in one of the asia countries that p-bandai allows direct order from, so i'm not paying more.

  3. Isn't this missing the 1/100 GM Command Colony Type?

  4. At the very least, Bandai is releasing the AZ Gundam outside Japan.

    1. I agree. I think the backlash of the fans outside Japan forced Bandai to make the A-Z Gundam a regular releasae. Good thing too that it's not P-Bandai.

    2. AZ design too good to be limited to amazon preorder.
