The Legendary Gundam property returns with toys and action figures based on its 26 year history in its native Japan. First introduced to the United States market six years ago, Gundam proved an international phenomenon, and Bandai America Incorporated is expanding its reach with an extension of the Gundam Seed toyline in 2005. This years assortment features an expanded battle-scarred action figure line and the action figure model kits that have anchored the property since its inception.
The Gundam section at Bandai was desolate. No 12" figures or high-end model kits. No person giving a sales pitch. No SD Gundam anywhere to be seen. The deluxe figures get new packaging, and new arch-enemies are planned, but not on display. Bandai is still promoting / supporting the line, but you can tell it is not their priority. Basically, my opinion is that this was Bandai's attempt to sell the toyline to retailers... If they pick it up, we will see new Gundam in stores. If not, then it's over.
