Bandai is one of the biggest toy manufacturers in the world. It is probably most well-known for producing Gunpla, the Gundam Plastic Models, many of which are produced exclusively in Japan. However, they also hold licensing rights for other famous franchises, including Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and Power Rangers. This means that if you are a fan of Japanese pop culture, P-Bandai is a wonderful place to get high-quality toys and figures.
Why Shop With P-Bandai
- Being one of the largest toy manufacturers that holds exclusive licensing rights to many franchises, P-Bandai is one of the best places for you to get rare toys and items. They have an impeccable reputation for having great toys, figures, and models that can be bought only in Japan.
- Bandai’s products are made from high-quality, safe materials that are subject to strict inspections.
- P-Bandai sells many limited edition toy kits. It is difficult to get many of these outside of Japan. You might be able to buy them in Hong Kong and Singapore, but many of them are made to pre-order and will sell out very quickly.
- Bandai has great customer support. They are happy to help if the kits they have sent are missing items etc. and work quickly.
