A 2022 Message from the Gundam Planet Team
Hello Gundam Planet customers!
We'd like to take some time to let you know how much we appreciate all of you for your support this year. We are deeply grateful for being able to continue providing these amazing products to so many new and returning customers. Despite some ongoing supply and distribution issues, we are ending 2022 in a much more optimistic situation than we were in 2021.
We know early in the year when everything from Bandai was still heavily allocated that many people had to fight for restocks, and we appreciate you bearing with us. Thankfully those issues have subsided just in time for such hot new lineups as the Witch From Mercury series, which has been amazing!! There are also a lot of manufacturers other than Bandai who have stepped up their game and will have a strong showing in 2023!
Products from the Moderoid line continue to highlight classic and interesting mechanics without much other industry presence, Zoids is finally being distributed directly to North America at their most affordable prices of all time, and the Megami Device lineup's allocations are loosening, meaning even more people will be able to try them!
Our Figurise department has the widest variety of products in our history, with collectibles for every taste and every budget. If you decide to collect your favorite characters one-by-one, it won't take you long to fill an entire book case (or wall)--trust us, we've done it ourselves!
Above everything else that happened, we're obviously the most excited that we were finally able to open our showroom to you in October. It was amazing to see you all in person again after 30 months, and we can't thank you enough for all of your feedback. It legitimately means so much when you tell us how great the new place looks, because we put our hearts and souls into it!
Our big goal for next year is to finish construction on the building to create a space where you can share your hobbies in-person, and also provide space for events to meet local builders to create a true model kit community right here.
Now that the showroom is complete, we also finally have some time to introduce more first-party items and branch out into new and interesting product lineups. We'll keep you posted as they become available!
Again, we can't thank you enough for your support in 2022 (and all the way back to 2010), and we look forward to continuing to bring you the best in 2023 and beyond!
