First header[edit]

Wrote lists for anime e and live-action movies by Bandai Visual. It would be nice if someone could write a list for the major games of Bandai Games. Kensuke 05:32, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

Major toy franchises[edit]

Don't Tamagotchi or Digimon deserve mention? 221.249.228.205 17:10, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Bandai and Nintendo[edit]

On the packaging of a number of Nintendo consoles, the Bandai logo was printed. This was the case for at least the European version of the NES, Gameboy and SNES. Does anyone know why the logo is on the packaging of these consoles? The only reason I can think of, is that maybe Bandai could have distributed the consoles in Europe... 194.109.22.149 11:21, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Power Rangers[edit]

I've cut this section down though I still think it could stand to lose more. End of the day, the entry isn't a place for fan bitching about the differences with the toys. People reading the article would want to know about Bandai the company, not the fact PR fans are upset their morpher doesn't have an LED.--HellCat86 02:44, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

GOD-JESUS robot?[edit]

In researching lyrics of Elvis Costello's "Tokyo Storm Warning" from Blood and Chocolate (album) I came across various blog references to the "GOD-JESUS" article on Wikipedia, explaining that it was a Bandai toy. Here's the "Wikipedia article" text quoted in several places:

"GOD-JESUS was a 1980s toy sold in Japan, made by Bandai. The toy is in the form of a robot brandishing a Christian cross. The toy was asked a question and would give an answer in a similar way to a Magic 8-ball."

The referring link was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GOD-JESUS

Did this article ever exist? Here is the song lyric that I'm researching:

"Japanese God-Jesus robots telling teenage fortunes For all we know and all we care they might as well be Martians"

Yep, there was an article for this back in 2007, but it was deleted for being "non-notable" (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/GOD-JESUS). The toy, by the way, certainly exists as the article described it. Nall (talk) 13:30, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Hobby[edit]

I think it should be mentioned that Bandai still keeps its hobby department under Bandai label still. And its collector division (AKA Tamashii Nations) should be mentioned as well. Thanks. (70.71.121.7 (talk) 10:22, 5 January 2011 (UTC))
