are the other two Valkyries art-books still in-print?

or should I start scouring ebay/etc. for them?

Amazon JP has Book 1 and 2, and available to ship outside of Japan.

I'm curious. If we're going to use Amazon.jp for these books esp the first two ones. Why not just use the US site instead? It's available there too. Is the one posted on Amazon Japan site is brand new or used too?

I believe brand new on Amazon JP.

So probably good option to buy 2nd hand for US buyers to save on shipping, but JP option is best for the most everyone else. :p

bloody typical.. <_< I wonder if I can cancel my order with Amazon as I'd rather order through HLJ to be perfectly honest.. but if I cant then I guess its no big deal. They both have them listed for the very same price.

Well the price is the same as HLJ when you pre-order. Not sure why it's list price doesn't show the discount?

Isnt the term... "ADDICT"

I get the impression you get the DDTs if you dont get a regular 1/60 scale bargain

I'm hoping to get some good enough image scans from these books to be able to make Wall Paper out of for my Home Office walls.

hehe! yeah its something like that! :lol:

And I reckon they should include a USB memory stick or DVD with all the pictures in digital form so we can print them out as needed! ^_^

As for Basara's VF-19Kai, I really don't understand a Valk with a face. Sorry. :rolleyes:

Right? Would it be nice to have a digital copy. Rotating wallpaper every 30 minutes. ^_^

Could always scan ever page I suppose.

Yeah. That's an option too. But it's not as crisp as the original file that they used for the book prior of printing. And scanning it means you have to open the whole spine of the book in order to scan the image from edge to edge. Unless we buy a second one only for scanning. :rolleyes:

Is there a place where one could procure a Print (like, classy wall-hanging artwork size) of Mr Tenjin's work without degrading the image quality by having to DIY it?

If not someone needs to get on that... they're missing out, and so are my walls!

Oh man. I didn't know. i should've waited before I shipped out my items at HLJ's PW. Oh well, I'll just wait for the other books to arrive before shipping it.

the one of the '19 and '21 in front of the Sharon emblem... it begs to be enlarged and put on my wall... I'll have to look into that!

Holy cow! Amazon JP shipped out some of the items I ordered with the book and it's coming via DHL!!!!

Shipped today arriving Thursday (Australia)! WAY faster than EMS.

Nice that Amazon ship items separately but only charge you for single combined shipment. :D

DHL would be great as the driver regularly stops by my work so I get can get stuff directly without the worry of missing the delivery..
