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..

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?


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

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).

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

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:
