Legit Gundam In China (Bandai Moves to Counter Piracy)

The latest news is that Bandai is going to build a 20 foot / 6 meter tall Gundam RX-78-2 statue at the 8thChina International Animation, Cartoon and Game Fair, a major animation event to be held from July 12-16 in Shanghai China. The Chinese version of RX-78-2 Gundam will have a unique exterior which was designed by Beijing Yankai Cultural Development Co., Ltd. Not only that, an MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. 2.0 China Special Version priced at 420 yuan (2758 php) will be sold exclusively for Chinese customers. It seems that the establishment of a Bandai group in China signals the start of Bandai’s move to counter bootleggers or piracy of Gundam in China. Well, there is the saying that you keep friends close and your enemies closer. I think Bandai is now closer to the source of their problem now. This is like Bright’s bitch slap move by Bandai to declare to the people that “Hey China, this is the legit version of the Gundam you all know about… stop taking the money which is rightfully ours!” — LOL
