    Help needed with Bandai

    I'm trying to get an order from the Bandai store in Japan. It seams that I have to "join" the club to get the order. Not a problem, I would love to join. I could possibly get some of those "online exclusives" Here is the rub. They don't have a way to sign up if you live in the U.S. has any one found a way to order from Bandai in japan? I tried the "contact us" page and nope can't really contact them. It is just a bunch of FAQ, no real way to get a message to them. Any help with this would be great. I can and have gotten a bunch of the "exclusives" but had to go the the dreaded Ebay and pay out the nose for them. Seriously they charge 3 to 4 X the list price, talk about highway robbery.

    Re: Help needed with Bandai

    you have to have a official bandai account man, you must be in the business to sell gunpla. i dont think its possible for you to order from them directly . i have a friend that holds a account at bandai and he used to own a store which gives him access to those good. as a normal consumer like us, impossible. you just have to buy at a website or place that preorders p-bandai exclusives.

    That is what I was trying to do. I was on the Banzai premium web store and I can't can't mak an account. Apparently you have to live in Japan.

    So apparently the "online exclusive" and special builds are for japan only.

    Premium bandai is in Japan, Taiwan, and Hongkong.
    I think if we have a guy living in one of those countries, we could order p bandai with those price individually.

    The P-Online Exclusives are restricted to Japanese residents. Unless you are own a business and supply access to them. Like GGInfinite or GundamPlanet.

    Re: Help needed with Bandai

    As we would say in the MARINES "Embrace the suck". They are holding all the good stuff. I guess it is back to paying 3 times the listed price. I wanted the add on for the RG wing 0, on ebay it is like $25. to $50, but in Japan it would only cost $14. What a mark up.
