SRP-wise, yes cheaper. But unlike standard release, there is no retailer discount I think. So if local shops were to import them and sell, more or less need the price would be SRP + shipping + shop profit margin. For standard releases, the retailer discounts were high enough to cover shipping and shop profit margin when selling at SRP in Malaysia

Lol open P-Bandai store doesn't mean the items will be cheaper. Price is pretty much same with you buy from 3rd party side from local hobby shop. Marked up with high shipping rates via EMS shipping.

Main problem with P-Bandai, they shipped directly from Japan instead of having warehouse locally. So if the item is made in China the item will need to go to Japan instead shipped directly from China to local P-Bandai store(warehouse).

If the model kit doesn't gave prepainted parts, it will be fully manufactured in Japan.

I am actually talk about P-Bandai in general. Weird business operating than retailers. Not sure if they are more profiting in this way.

BTW talking about gunpla
The SD Soketsuden line is fully made in China despite recently made for Japan market(previously only available through Gundam Base). So gunpla is not actually fully made in Japan.

Yes, SG is bigger market because they buy MORE due to more disposable income la....kits are cheaper in SG.

Agree but at least there's official channel for us to pre-order upcoming kits without worrying if we can get a slot or paying too much?
