They're not actually in stock just yet, but they should be in soon.

I was quite glad to see that the resin kits are getting re-released this month too. That is, unless Platz delays even the re-releases... dry.gif

You're right.
Too bad Platz MAVE resin kit won't be re-released also.

The Mave will be re-released also. HLJ just screwed up and re-listed the first version of the Supersylph instead of the Mave.

I did a bit of googling today, and was quite surprised to find that all of the Yukikaze manga has been scanlated! It's only one book, but still tongue.gif
It's rather odd, and it deviates from the anime at times, which leads me to wonder if it's closer to the novels than the OVA. Its author is Yumi Tada, the character designer for the OVA.

I also found a Yukikaze fansite with a few interesting links. By far the best of them, though, is a collection of blog entries summarizing the Yukikaze novels!

Great success!

Found a translation of the opening chapter of the first Yukikaze novel!
But unfortunately, it seems to be the only one that's been translated...

Just pre-ordered the 1/100 Bandai Mave. Take that yahoo japan! I might order the Platz Mave as well, but I already have a recast. It would be interesting to compare the two and I could always sell of the recast.

I'm pretty sure the Platz Mave is going to be re-released. I emailed Platz a while back and they said that they were going to be re-released.

I received my yukikaze artbook. laugh.gif
It's a beautyfull book, packloaded with tons of production sketches detailing every aspect of the design.
A must have if you're a plane/mecha geek like myself.

PS: HLJ shipped my MAVE kit by Platz today. cool.gif

What impressed me most about the artbook is how these guys churn out one revolutionary aircraft design after another, and then go deep into the details.

Two, actually. Yamashita & Takeuchi, the main designers of the harware, issued the "Blue & Purpre" artbook, a comprehensive collection of their artworks & sketches. The book was sold at Comiket only, and seems to be still raising at YJ! auctions. Then there's the book that's part of the BluRay release, "FAF Technical Orders"; as reported by Valkyrie, it has even more artwork that's not part of the other books.

I already feel sorry for your wallet.

Absolutly! They've gone so far in technical details you would believe those planes are for real.
Like how the engine works, the landing gear, the way they fly. So much life like decription you feel like reading an aeronautic book.
And of course all the sketches help you having a better understanding of the model you're gonna build.
plus the super cute FAF chan gallery

I'm in trouble here. I would buy the bluray mainly for the artbook but my money has already been spent for more figures. wacko.gif
I added it to my 'must buy list' for next month. happy.gif

I take it that the first book is pretty rare and hard to get (and probably really expensive)? Is the second book part of the BluRay release any good? How big? How many pages? Any scans? How much and where do I order? If I were to only get one, would the BR-DVD book be okay or will I pine for more? hehe...

Oops, just read your discription back on pg 22 - wow! $200 - that's a lot for a set of BR-DVDs... too rich for my blood for such a small sized book.

Is there any difference between the 2 Platz Supersylph kits, besides the extra missiles in the second kit? They are the same price and just want to get the best Supersylph I can get.
