Item of interest spotted on MANDARAKE!

Recommended Posts

I really want an SDF-1.... should I wait for Arcadia if they ever reissue that? Is it worth it at that price tag?

I would say yes, if ever Arcadia re-issue SDF-1. it would probably be costing that much, second, I dont think arcadia will release assembly kits like yamato, and this assembly kit has more stuff than the original toy (like PE parts)

cheapest renewal VF-25F Ive seen :

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1001303

And YF-29 Isamu :

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1001340

add jungle's 5% handling policy to the price. But then Yen is weak nowadays, so still a good deal.

EDITED : sorry not the cheapest 25F in Yen since Manda had better deals in the past..but Yen is weaker now..

early bird special!

SV-51 on mandarake that didnt turn up when I searched "Macross" or "Yamato" in Japanese characters! Wouldve bought one for myself if I hadnt scored one on Jungle (for way less) :D Go go go. Buy first, think later! Let your wallet do the crying. Yen is weaker now than ever :

Hehe! for me personally.. no. But for others who can't quite afford a renewal they are still a reasonable thing! Especially in fighter mode anyways.. Gerwalk and battroid modes look a little awkward.

Not anymore.

:D

the modern hasegawa has a better external detail but the Club M has a lot of internal details that I wouldn't dream to take on now :p

edit:

i am camping for more 25S renewal but it seems like mandarake can no longer get more

Destroids have jumped about $40 bucks. They used to list them $80-100 if you caught them.

Grade B YF-30 for $142 :

Sealed RVF-25 for $104 :

Grade B YF-29 Ozma Super Parts for $20 :

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1025965

Prices have been adjusted to include the 5% fees with jungle. Price for a used YF-30 is decent, considering 18k Yen ($150) usually dont last long at Manda.

I didn't know where to put this so I chose this thread, Anyways, I like the new layout. It has tags to help filter the search faster. That means I gotta be faster on the trigger! Oh and someone snagged a VF-1A Hikaru with S/S parts for a good price with the way the yen is.

I havent tried it, but will mandarake consolidate the item if I order from different branches?

No I don't think so.

Unfortunately that means paying two separate shipping costs, and if each order from a separate store has a total of less than Y5k they will charge the Y500 handling fee for each order. Best to wait it out until you can get everything from one location.

I've been meaning to ask as well is there a list or some kind of reference that says each of the Mandarake branches and how quick/reliable they are?

Some Mandarake shops are better than others, but, with repeated purchases, you will eventually experience all of them, at some point, drop the ball to some extent....it probably has to do with who is assigned international mail order duty on any given day... ;)

My least favorite is the Umeda branch as they rarely ship anything SAL whilst the other branches have no problems shipping the same item SAL.

You have an option to combine any future orders from the same store so you can place an order now and add to the same order at a later date. Mandarake will remove the 500 Yen fee when you finally reach the 5k Yen mark. The only branch that will limit the amount of orders you combine is the one in Fukouka, they limit you to 2 order combinations.

I still dont understand why Umeda branch has "I cant ship it in SAL" for small or common or low value item.

so far I am satisfied with them all except Sapporo branch, maybe it was one off experience but all of the mandarake shipment I received uses new and a box with good allowance and padding. The Sealed YF-30 I bought before for someone else ends up in a box that has a lot smaller allowance for the item. The worst part of it, they hacked a small box to make it bigger so the corner dont have resistance so when I received the item, the box of the toy has a lot of dings.
