Bandai and Mastermind have teamed up to produce an extremely expensive shirt to advertise your love of Gundam. The shirt has a Gundam design hand stitched with Swarovski crystals. The cost of the shirt is a mere 200,000 ¥ or $1,670, £830. A less expensive version with glass crystals will be available in U.S., France, Italy, Singapore, China and Japan at a cost of 38,000 ¥ or £160,$320.

EDIT: Yes, it said glass beads, not crystals. My oops and it was a bit of a paradox..

If you want to lose the Swarovski crystals, then ofcourse. :3

Can you imagine what that shirt must feel like? Or weigh? I wonder if anyone who actually buys one will wear it. I absolutely adore Gundam and would kill to have one of these shirts but it doesn't seem like something that would display well so what would a person do with it?

You could always frame it, clearly not something meant to be worn, unless ofcourse-- you're rich enough to afford something that costly and not fear Otaku's that may rip it straight off your back. D:

Im willing to bet the guys from Linking Park will have one =__= but thats about it...
You wouldent be able to wear it! If it gets dirty u would have to wash it and "Good bye Swarovski!!!"
Crazy Gundam fans can do as they please xD

Ha Ha I like how they a say the shirt costs a mere $1,670! Wouldn't be surprised if they sold out on the first day, though who would actually pay that much for a shirt is beyond me.


Edit: Just noticed a typo on Darkanger's post , on the source site it says that the less expensive version will have glass beads (instead of crystals).

If a person had that much money to burn I'd imagine they would display it on their 1:1 Rei figure.
