  1. Other than the top 2 the list seems totally random, lol

    1. hohoho yeahh, Agreed with you ...
      I think AGE series must be in there (3-31), because AGE Series is quite popular

    2. AGE is a flop in japan. It is surprising Age-fx even made the list.

  2. List is what I expected up to the base jabber, then the other surprise is the zaku marine. Everything else looks about right. Would have also figured the destroy mode banshee would be above unicorn mode.

  3. ’ve always been interested in seeing sales numbers from Bandai. With other media like movies, games and books, it’s real easy to find out how many units have sold and what’s considered to be a good seller, but I don’t think I have ever seen this info from Bandai. I would like to know what they consider to be good sales numbers for the various grades as well as total units sold, etc. Does anyone know if this info is available anywhere?

    1. No it's not available anywhere. Even distributors would only have sales data specific to their country and not other countries

  4. Rozen Zulu has been out for less than a week and it's already outsold RG Mk II Titans?? I call bullshit!

    1. Duh, isn't it obvious that most people chose the AEUG version?

  5. Zeta is on #1 on top-seller because of its good quality and affordability. that's why it sold so much. but prices aside, Nu Gundam Ver Ka may be the best gunpla, not only in this year, but probably ever(?)

    1. I'd love to agree with that, but now that I own the Nu ver ka, I can't say its the best kit ever. Its great, don't get me wrong, but it has its own share of problems that keeps it from being the best gunpla ever.I'd have to say that the Nu is in my opinion the gunpla of 2012 though.

  6. I love that Byarlant Custom is in the top 3. And the good sales of the MSes like Delta and Delta Kai hopefully spurs Bandai to produce more non-animated suits.

  7. Hmmm.... from what we can tell HG Gundam Age is not that popular with Japan so I guess what some people said is correct UC & SEED is still popular & selling like hotcakes. :P

    Most surprising is Byarlant & Zaku Marine! I would have thought the Delta Gundam series would rise to top 10 yet they're not. Though I do have to keep in mind this is just Amazon ranking only, we haven't yet see the overall sales.

  8. Zeta is no #1 cause it so very sexy

  9. GM Sniper II is number 6! We told you we'd buy it, Bandai!

  10. 2013 Hope....
