This is actually the second time around that Gundam figurines have been on Pepsi bottles (first time was 2003 with regular and Diet Pepsi).

Funny thing is that Coca-Cola had something similar in Hong Kong a few years ago - only with pewter Gundam figurines.

Yep, and there have been many other Pepsi tie-ins in Japan such as Dragonball Z and even Star Wars.

Do you realize what type of a nightmare it is to pay for the shipping of soda from japan? Wink It would be cheaper to just buy them on ebay sans soda (where they're sure to show up). If this is anything like past promotions then the figures wont actually be *the* bottle caps, but come in little boxes that hang off of the bottles.

Hmmm, I wonder if there's a poster to go with these...

Man, you've got to love those bottle cans.

But isn't there a danger of people choking on the figures? Very Happy

They had Star Wars Episode 1 on the Pepsi cans back in 99. That's all I can think of.

Agreed, even though I'm currently hooked on A&W Root Beer and Diet Coke with Lime, Laughing

You know, they make cherry and lime colas. You would think by now that there'd me a Bloodberry-flavor. ^__^; (Yay, random!)
