Only in the states lol

I know, MH Toyshop still has it for Oct. 31st. Should I be worried? It is a few bucks cheaper and I can only assume domestic shipping. Aren't they in LA?

Lots of stock of Gunbuster. Most people say it is identical to the original except for the colour.

I cancelled mine as I am starting to collect Star Wars and I have the SRC version already.

It was a awesome deal , I was so tempted to get it and I don't even own 1 Gao---gar stuff.

Since the SoC Gunbuster seems to be readily available I decided that I need it in my collection (awesome reasoning isn't it?). Is there anything to watch out for like easily breakable parts or problems in the joints/transformation?

Would you say that the SoC Gunbuster is a toy worth owning if you can only have one transforming Soul of Chogokin toy in your collections or are there other toys that translate the SoC design philosophy better?

It's a solid figure. The only SOC I ever owned. Held up very well until I accidentally broke it. The transformation is great with minor parts forming/removal to make it screen accurate. Nice articulation and tons of accesories

I finally had some quality time with my SRC GaoFighGar this weekend. I'm not a fan of the ball joint in the torso. It just seems to be a but to week for the massive backpack. I also think that the metal in the legs could be a bit less because it is really heave. Gives him a good stand and heft though.

Now I'm waiting for my Genesic GaoGaiGar that is sitting in a warehouse at the moment. I try to determine if I want to get the other SRC toys form GaoGaiGar. Bandai never release a transformed Mic Sounders did they?

Wait what.....this is a recent release. What's with that major markdown? I'd get it if i didn't already have the original release.

There seems to be either an over-supply or low-demand for this GunBuster for some odd reason :unsure:

The local shops over here are pricing down their stock for it too (which doesn't occur often, much less for a new release.)

Yeah. I think it's been shelfwarming since release.

I thought I read somewhere the japanese fans didn't like that it seems it was just a re-color at a higher pricing.

This seems to be be the third SOC to shelfwarm after GX-68 and GX-69.

At any rate, nice discount at CDJ. The shipping-fee is too high, tho, at either EMS or SAL-Parcel.

GX-68 and 69 shelfwarmed? Wow....over here they have all been sold out.

And didn't they schedule to have a reissue for the 68 soon?

I actually cancelled my CDJapan Gunbuster preorder due to their revised EMS cost.

EMS is overly expensive with CDJapan.

Other places have it for 20k yen + 4700 yen.

As great as their customer service is, I honestly think CDJapan should put a no cancellation policy on expensive items.

This is contrary to the egotistical Amiami and Nippon Yasan.

I have cancelled with AmiAmi and NY before with no reprimand....despite what they say on the terms and conditions. Just saying its not something they actually enforce with an iron fist.
