Been a fan since being introduced to Gundam by a classmate in the 80s but only recently been able to collect various Gundam stuff. Have a few toys and model kits(still unassembled), and art books.

My favorite item had to be this double pencil case I got in the 80s that was actually a Taiwan knock-off. Front side had the mecha named correctly, but the other side had the Taiwan version of the character names. Japanese anime soft-vinyl magnetic pencil cases were the all the rage in the mid-80s.

Didn't see a Gundam Thread anywhere and am willing include any Bandai US Gundam merchandise as well.

Nice anime collection there! Envious of your Mazinger Z and Getter Robo(Dragun) there.


Here some olders pics from 2006...hasn't changed much. I bought 3 more kits since then. Will have to take photos soon. I have not put any kits together so far.

Hobby Japan(center) was the first of its kind I ever bought. First I heard of 0083 and I just graduated from Navy boot camp 1991.

the 4 mini-kits on the left I got at my very first San Diego Comic Con back in 2002. My second SD Zyph FB I got from Wal-Mart that I ended up opening up.

Most of these were Target purchases

RX-78 from Target. The Zyph was from Wal-Mart. I should've bought another set of these!

Sorry if the pics are small. I had them reduced for another forum few years back.

MIB models I got at a small local Japanese store. SD Astray Red Frame is pretty nice. Really dig the Gundam Seed Stargazer "105 Slaughter Dagger" units!

Got this UC 0083 Stardust Memory(favorite era) RX-78 GP01 FB @ Wal-Mart...wished I had bought 2. Probably my most prized Gundam in my possession since its also the largest.

This was only available through Target, I believe. Really cool old school RX-78 collectible to have but I think the head could have been a bit better

Small 4 1/2 in. die-cast Gundam MK-II in AEUG Colors from Suncoast(was hoping for the black Titans colors though)
