Lucky Draw & Limited Items for Gundam 30th Anniversary

Bandai Premium announces a lucky draw and the release of a limited item set for the celebration of Gundam 30th Anniversary.

The lucky draw is for Mega Bloks' Gundam RX-78-2, Char's Zaku II and Zaku II. 1,000 sets for each of the three to be given out.

These three sets of Mega Bloks' Gundam "models" were released some years ago at 8,500 Yen each (exclusive of tax). Now fans get to get them through the lucky draw.

I'm not quite sure about the details of this lucky draw, but from the looks of it, you have to be a Bandai Premium member in order to participate. ^^;

On the other hand, a very luxurious set of limited item to be sold for Gundam 30th Anniversary: Zeppin Series History of Gundam Armed Force Emblem Pins Collection. 32 selected emblems from the different organizations in previous Gundam anime series, from E.F.S.F. and Zeon in Gundam UC0079, till Celestial Beings, A-Laws and other in the latest Gundam Double O.

Each emblem is 3cm x 3cm in size, and all 32 of the whole set are enclosed in a high class frame. The size of the frame is 42cm x 29.5cm x 3cm (thick), which will come with a support stand for it to be displayed on table, as well as a button to allow it to be hanged on wall.

A limited item with unique serial number.

This will a Bandai Premium limited item though. ^^; Pre-order has started since yesterday (July 3rd) and will end on September 30th. Early December release, 21,000 Yen.
