Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer movie merchandise in Singapore

As you might be able to infer from my Gundam 00 movie review, there was a number of Gundam 00 movie merchandise being sold outside the theatre. This includes Gundam 00 posters, pillows and a carrier bag among other things. One of the more limited items is the GNT-0000 00 Qan[T] HG 1/144 (clear version) model kit. According to the sales booth, there are only about 100 sets in Singapore and have limited sales to ticket holders of the movie. While I wasn’t really interested in getting it (clear gunpla isn’t really my thing…), I did manage to get myself a 3D Gundam 00 movie poster and a free carrier bag to go along with it.

Total damage to wallet: SGD 32.90

PS: If you’re wondering why the poster looks excessively shiny, that’s because it is still in the plastic packaging…
