  1. Hi-Metal R

    I've yet to check and it is the one thing that worries me about them after reading about it here. Been too busy of late.

    Mine is in the same status. I'm beginning to not expect that to change till the end of the month...

    They may turn up in some independent and 2nd hand stores but expect to pay a pretty penny for them since it's still rather new and a web exclusive product. Hell I remember coming across the Max Super 2 days before the release date in a store in Akihabara and it was selling at a hefty markup, though that was largely due to someone trying to cash in on breaking the street date.

    Damn good job, if you told me it's a photo copy of an actual street in Japan I'd believe it. Lawson really sells it.

    They didn't go on sale, they're just taking pre-orders. Or at least that is what it looks like. I don't see a release date anywhere though.

    As mentioned before I fear that this unit is so niche that it'd be another web exclusive, which means extra $ on our ends. Funnily enough it's more well know even though it has less on screen across the series time than the Cat's Eye.

    You'd be paying at a premium for it, an extra 2,000 yen. It's most likely thru their own proxy service.

    Still no date on the Tomahawk I take it? It was announced before the Defender and that has a date of release.
  9. Macross General SCOOPUDA thread

    Plus was never that popular in Japan unfortunately. I'm actually surprised that Psycho gun and Order a rabbit is so high there in the list.

    That is my issue with it as well, after all it actually did just that in the tv series.

    Can't blame you, I'm pretty much in the same boat about this. Delta had some good songs but pretty mediocre everything else. The only thing I can hope for is they do much better this time around and redeem themselves but the bar has been set pretty low now.

    My friend who was with me on that trip picked up his Roy S1 + stand together at a 2nd hand store and they were in separate box. Then again, maybe the shop had them separately and decided to throw them together to help make move along. How many times did they release the Roy S1 in Hi-Metal R?
  13. Hi-Metal R

    Yeah, I'm looking into that one at the moment. F360 mentioned as much before. Thanks.

    Yeah, I meant Milia and the missile set being the web exclusives. Doesn't that mean they're less likely to turn up in regular stores? I knew Max was a normal release which happen to fall on the time I was visiting the country, which was why I didn't bother to pre-order it since I could personally pick it up on the day. Mlilia and the missile set I didn't even know was coming out until I was there. I couldn't find listings for it from the usual online stores I use for a while until I found out about Bandai's own premium series and by which time they closed the pre-orders. Well, that's just the way it goes I guess.

    That's a real pity. I was actually in Tokyo at the time of Max's release so I could just drop into a store and pick it up on the day of release. Looks like them being a web exclusive, even if I was still there I wouldn't even be able to easily pick it up in stores. 2nd hand stores at a massive mark up is something else altogether, which also makes them may or may not worth it.
