I. What is Premium Bandai?

What is Premium Bandai (or P-Bandai)? Premium Bandai is an official online sales website of Bandai (Bandai Hobby Online Shop) managed. From the name, we can see that this is not an ordinary sales website. That’s right, it can be said that Premium Bandai mainly focuses on limited products, which may be more advanced than the general level of the market, or a smaller range of services. That’s why they are often more expensive than usual.

Bandai Hobby Online Shop or Premium Bandai was born in 2009. Initially, it only catered to Japanese domestic customers (Japan delivery only). Currently, the company has expanded to main areas including China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, the USA, Singapore, and Canada.

Premium Bandai sells not only Gundam, and Gunpla models, but also a wide range of toys, fashion, accessories, and collectibles brands and products related to the brands held by Bandai. Of course, they are still limited, premium, unique versions different from the mass products that are widely distributed around the world. This is the strong point, special point, and exclusive point of P-Bandai. From there, it also creates a symbol of different values for the products sold.
