Oh, is this a 1/60 kit to go with the 1/60 Laevatein? I had a blast with that kit, and I had thought this one would go the way of the dodo (its last appearance was an unpainted prototype from a year or two ago). I'm glad to see it coming back. Hopefully there'll be a reissue of the Laevatein as well.

So that's the two 1/60 Kotobukiya kits, the three Aoshima 1/48 re-issues plus their own Laevatein kit, the Almecha Arbalest, and the upcoming Metal Build Arbalest to go with the Metal Build Laevatein. Phew. Gonna have to stock up on ramen now...

Dammit, why is Bandai releasing so much good stuff all at once.

Wonder how quickly this will sell out, the Leviathan took a while.

But this is the Arbalest, so I'm pretty sure it'll sell out pretty quick.    Beside, metal build is more well known now compare to before when the MB Laevatein released.

While I can't say it doesn't look good, I'm going to have to pass on this one. I'm trying to avoid spending too much on toys after my surgery, and Alter's Almecha version is pretty good already.

I know, too many good toys are coming out and they are all expensive. I think I'll try to get at least one of these although I really want 2. :D

Oh yes, it will be mine. I have been waiting for a good sized, highly detailed, partially diecast Arbalest since 2006 when I first saw FMP.

I don't even try Hobby Search anymore.  I can never get in on most of their preorders. :wacko:

CDjapan was actually cheaper then hlj by like $2, probably due to the difference in their conversion system.

Scored 1 via hlj, and one at cdjapan.  

March is looking like it's gonna be an expensive month.  

Mospeada Stick, VF-31A's, and now MB Arbalest.

Man how did you find it on cdjapan, I can't get it to come up on the search results. 

I sign up for their news letter, and they email me on every Bandai preorder night at around 16:00 jst with the items and links that's up for preorder.

I just repost the link. ^_^

They use to have super discount sales for just release items that they will email me too but I don't get those anymore.:(

Is it pay up front?

EDIT:

Also, there's a 5% off coupon you can click during the checkout process. Brings it down to $~193.
