Ko/3rd party Regult?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone has posted this, but I was roaming around taobao when I found this out:

https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1-c.w4004-15920461423.12.1751f25485NRch&id=559139031898

 

They're the same guys who made the ko 1/60 valkries and wasn't sure if this is legit or not. Yamato had a limited release on a kit I think, and I'm not sure if they're taking that design, or they're making new stuff, like the render suggests. Also, is the price $140?

I know, but I wasn't sure if this was an original design or not, which it does with the render. Idk.

It was mentioned in that thread a while back. It's a new design. Also has the heavy missile option as an add on i believe.

I'd prefer the conversation continues here, with specific information about this product and how to acquire it.

What do you mean by how to order it? The first post already have the taobao link. You can order it from there.

I imagine Astralith finds Taobao as confusing as I do...

Are the heavy missiles included?

How much will the total cost be?

When will it ship?

How much will international shipping cost?

When will my credit card be charged?

Can I pay via PayPal?

Same here, Taobao confuses the he'll out of me. Is there anyway we could set up a group buy for this sort of thing?

You probably want to use a proxy. Payment etc. works pretty much the same as Japanese proxies.

Well, to be honest, Taobao is really confusing. ;) The only workaround for this is to have a Chinese friend who can interpret the whole Taobao site or use proxy agent. But based on google translate, it looks like it comes with the missile pod.

At this point, all we need to rely on is Google. And I just googled, and there's some proxy agents for Taobao. Taobao Focus, Taobao Age, EngTaobao, and Bhiner to name some.

I haven't a lot of faith in this regult, probably it would be a bit floppy too. But to be honest I am quiet interested by it being the only available toy at this scale of the regult. 

I have asked for my proxies if they can order it and they answered that it would be better to wait when it is released. But I have been asking myself what would happen if nobody actually pay the "pre-order". Well I won't take the risk and I would advise others not to too

This is my own take on the google translate so take it with a grain of salt.

Prices shown are non refundable deposits. The description has the prices. 960yuan for the one with clear pieces, 1000yuan for the regular, buy 2 regular and you can order the missile version for the same price.

Total cost would be your invoice + proxy fees + international delivery.

No specific date given for shipment.

Shipping costs depends on carrier chosen.

Credit cards usually get charged right away.

Some proxies allow Paypal for payment.

At this point would rather someone with the appropriate skill made the STL files and I would use my 3D printer to make parts in ABS.
