Out-of-Stock Limited Gunplas Sales Method

Sounds trivial, but I find it hard not to report about it here ^^

Still remember this picture?

The red and blue boxes are the two types of limited Gunplas on sales at Gundam 30th Birthday Festival in Nagoya, which was held from Friday (July 24th) till Sunday (July 26th) at Port Messe in Nagoya.

The two limited Gunplas are:

* HGUC Operation V Clear Color Version - 2,600 Yen and,
* HGUC Char's MS Set Clear Color Version - Zaku II, Gelgoog and Z'Gok - 3,200 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Apparently, they were so many demands for the two, they ran out of stock at the event! Bandai quickly responded by issuing ID and password to the customers after that, which they can use to log into Bandai Premium's site and purchase the HGUC kit they desire.

There's a time limit however, to use the ID and password - between July 28th and August 10th. Also, it seems that the users will need to bear the delivery charge of their purchases.

Anybody can access Bandai Premium's site and click on the two limited kits displayed there, but you'll be blocked from getting it if you don't have the ID and password. This is the first time I heard of such method from Bandai regarding their limited Gunplas. XD
