An if anyone is looking for one of these, AmiAmi has the Metal Robot Spirits SIDE MS Force Impulse Gundam for 9,980 Yen, discounted from 14,300 Yen: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-122584
  2. HLJ is a fantastic shop, but recently, they have gotten much worse in the marketing and promotions department. Their big push for Winter 2021 was a "20% Off Shipping" promotion and since I had a picked up a large item on Cyber Monday, I figured I would take advantage and just ship my private warehouse, even though I knew I had some items due around the end of the month. So I got ship and unfortunately, due to the size of the item, I had to ship via DHL. So no discount appears so I politely inquire with customer service. Their response was the promotion only applied to Air Small Packet shipments. Nowhere on their promotions was this specified, so I thought, well that sucks... Today, I get a not saying 2 days left, DHL Shipping discounted!! So again I inquire about it, the customer service basically says "well, too bad, so sad...this was something marketing added...". No offer of store credit, discount on the next purchase, just a feeble ..."your timing is unfortunately" Note that I have been a customer with HLJ since 1995 when they first opened up online and the value of the package they shipped me was over 100,000Y. Basically for 4000Y they could have kept me super happy. If this is how they are going to be treating customers going forward, I cannot support them going forward. If they have something you want, it is a pretty safe bet to order from them, but keep in mind can get better discounts, loyalty points and cheaper shipping from other stores. It used to be that customer service pushed them over the top for me, but based on this experience they are down at the bottom now.
  3. This is the one from the series that caught my eye, given the similarities to FSS designs. It is called the Gundam Noise Canceller, from the 5th episode of the Gundam Build Divers GIMM & Ball's World Challenge spin-off light novel. Unfortunately, P-Bandai has not announced this kit yet, but it has been licensed:
  4. It's too bad the Archangel Bridge base kit that is coming out is 1/144, that is the most iconic pose of the Freedom. Did you do/plan to do a Justice to go with the freedom?
  5. Great job, and great poses. The Freedom is such an iconic design at this point.
  6. Geez, that is almost double the MSRP of the VF-25F at release.
  7. A few new items in the FFS space: Volks IMS Auge Arsculs is up for pre-order: https://volksusastore.com/webstores/hobby/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=13021 Pre-release preview of the kit: On the resin side of the house, pre-orders are open for the GTM SSI Kubalkan Gatexion Mark 3 "Ritter Jet" Haretsu no Ningyou (that is a mouthful) from our Treasure. http://ourtreasure.co.jp/製品一覧/ゲートシオンマーク3 リッタージェット・破烈/?fbclid=IwAR2Iqt4LUdFkW585cR_txA3cIqPbdZq4EotxCZDWT9ODj-M7degz4MzFf_E I also found this great picture of the GTM versions of the classic FSS mortar headds:
  8. Looks Fantastic. This kits are a labour of love.
  9. I picked up the GP-01 and 02 ver. A.N.I.M.E. On a whim and that was a huge mistake…ended up with a bunch of the ones from 0083. They just announced a re-release of the GM Custom and Dom Troppen.
  10. Always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission...
