Readers, I am so happy to announce that Gunpla 101 now has its own T-shirt line!
Working with our logo designer, Ben Huber, we’ve come up with shirts for every shape and size that will show off your Gunpla spirit to anyone who sees them.
Let’s meet the designs! The first one is a more detailed version of the Gunpla 101 logo:
“Forget English 101. Only Gunpla 101 can teach you how to cut, snap, shave, and polish perfect replicas of our favorite Gundam mobile suits. Show everyone you’re in the only course that matters.”
And the second is a tattoo-inspired Gunpla is Freedom design:
“Gunpla is freedom. You can build it as you like.” These words from Tatsuya Yuuki AKA Meijin Kawaguchi of the Build Fighters universe reminded us that we build for fun, not to impress anybody. Here’s a shirt for anyone who agrees.”
In the top photo, John is wearing his Gunpla is Freedom shirt in Char’s Custom Red Men’s Medium, and I am wearing my Gunpla 101 shirt in Trans Am Pink Women’s Small. In the bottom photo, John is wearing his Gunpla 101 shirt in Iori Blue Men’s Medium, and I am wearing my Gunpla is Freedom in Zeta Blue Women’s Small.
We ordered our shirts early to check for issues. Our shirts are prototypes with slight printing errors, and look slightly different from the improved quality designs you can now buy in the shop.
Frequently Asked Questions
