  1. Only if they sparkle... @tekering Do you sparkle?
  2. Has no one watched Toy Story?
  3. Shockingly, I received a shipping notification and delivery today of my DX SSP set. Hopefully others will get their set. As you can see, I opened a ticket back in July to upgrade my shipping to EMS (still supported in Canada, thankfully), paid the upgrade (~$15) and the order shifted to Preparation in Progress once I had a Live Chat Support conversation with an agent. Once that was done, it only took them 5 weeks to actually put it in the mail. Once mailed, it took 5 days to get here.
  4. This is probably my favourite form for the Hazel. I am glad they are going to make this one kit instead of forcing people to buy multiple kits to get the parts to make this thing. I wonder if they designed the runners properly so that we don't get a box full of useless junk. I hope so, given the leftovers from the HGUC line.
  5. Old news, but the second kit in Sentinel's Priobot line was announced - Tengen Toppa Gurran Lagann: Lazengann. Capturing for prosperity's sake. more pictures below. available at HLJ for preorder: https://www.hlj.com/plaiobot-tengen-toppa-gurren-lagann-lazengann-set88349
  6. @sqidd here is a playlist of someone building the model. He is not doing anything too fancy other than applying panel lining. Others have gone on to completely rebuild the electronics, etc. I think he is up to Volume 24 at this point. This will give you a sense of the size of it as well. I'd volunteer to build it for you, but I live in Canada...
  7. Cherry Bomb toys is absolutely amazing. If you have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. If you watched the video, you may have caught a glimpse of this, but this was my best find in the store.
  8. When I saw your post, I thought "hey, what about the old Legioss kits, they should have a colour guide". So paint mixing looks like a must. Searching through HobbySearch lead me to discover these, which I did not know existed:
  9. I'm a sucker for the MG Barbatos and ordered the add-on kit, mostly for the mobile worker. I wanted it for a diorama I wanted to build titled:
  10. I put in a ticket to upgrade from SAL to EMS (still supported in my country) and NY came back with $14. This was for a single SSP set. The key is to use the correct subject line "Change Shipping Method". My previous ticket was ignored, even after escalating with their Live Chat person.
  11. I've been a customer since they first appeared online, over twenty years ago. I met Scott at a WizardWorld convention back in the early 2000s. Super nice guy, big hobby geek. I have never had an issue with anything from them. The redesigned site is a bit a flaky, but other than Macross pre-orders, it works if you know what you are looking for. They are currently running a promotion where you can win back your shipping costs. Most items on the shop are discounted, again, other than the crazy Macross toys. If you are looking for model kits, they can't be beat. Easy to order, great customer service and super trust worthy (they will not scalp).
  12. Of course they will. Once you find them, you will stop looking...
  13. I think HLJ is having issues due to the recent system work. I get different search results from what was posted above. Probably a session replication problem. They should be able to sort it out so look for it later this morning (it will be good for those who did not stay up).
  14. If the drinking game was everytime someone was cartjacked, I would have polished off a bottle of scotch. I don't think I can afford this game anymore...
