If you’re a fan of Gundam or Gunpla, there is one place you need to go to at least once in your life and that is GUNDAM BASE. GUNDAM BASE is a hub for everything Gundam and the premier location for anything Gunpla, with several exclusive kits and experiences that you can only get at fourteen locations worldwide. Today BANDAI SPIRITS announced that they will open two new GUNDAM BASE SATELLITE locations in Nagoya and Kyoto starting this coming March.
BANDAI SPIRITS made the announcement this morning via press release and had the following to say:
Since its release in July 1980, Gunpla has evolved in various ways, including four-color injection molding, our original technology. With the goal of expanding the Gunpla business to Gunpla fans around the world, THE GUNDAM BASE has been established as the official Gunpla shop. The GUNDAM BASE was established in 2003 in South Korea, 2005 in Taiwan, 2017 in Tokyo, 2018 in Shanghai, and 2019 in Fukuoka as the official store of Gunpla and currently operates a total of 14 stores worldwide.
THE GUNDAM BASE SATELLITE is an official satellite store packed with the elements of the flagship store ‘THE GUNDAM BASE’ currently operating in Tokyo and Fukuoka. Based on the catchphrase ‘Let’s make Gunpla’, which is the concept of ‘THE GUNDAM BASE’, we will meet the needs of Gunpla fans in the region while maintaining the fun of ‘buying, making, watching, and learning’ about Gunpla. In addition, we aim to create a store that new Gunpla fans can enjoy by showing families who are not familiar with Gunpla how they can enjoy playing with Gunpla with their children.
BANDAI SPIRITS is looking to take its Gunpla kits to the next level by introducing a number of stores across the world and by focusing on the fun that people can have building kits. It is a fun pastimes, especially for families looking to get their kids into a new, engaging, and addicting hobby. The Nagoya and Kyoto GUNDAM BASE SATELLITE locations will open on 3 March 2021 in Nagoya and 17 March 2021 in Kyoto.
