Skull Leader's Lackey (5/15)



  1. Arrgh! Doesn't ship to anywhere other than the US!
  2. Looks great. I wonder how this will pair with the teased S.H.Figuarts Kira Yamato figure
  3. Great looking kit, but it will be a while before it is available outside of Japan. Apparently, first release is lottery only, then limited release in Fukuoka Gundam Base. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be in a hurry to milk the Geara Doga mold. They have done 2 colour swaps since the kit was released in 2013 and that's it. Where is the heavy beam cannon version, the Stuka head version. Heck, they can probably milk a Gear Zulu out of it, maybe. I would love a MG version of this, maybe I will just do my own mode of the base Geara Doga someday.
  4. Pre-Order up at HLJ: https://www.hlj.com/1-72-scale-plamax-vf-1s-fighter-valkyrie-roy-fokker-macross-max01328
  5. Thanks for the review links. Looks good, although the gold is a bit of a let down. It looks like there are only a few instances of lame gold. The coating also does not seem consistent, but the armour hides most of the it. I am still on the fence as to the value of the kit. It looks much nicer than the original kit but it is pricy for a master grade.
  6. Pre-Orders at Volks USA start tomorrow for a Feb 2023 release.
  7. The follow up question would be whether you have to pay import taxes again once it comes through your mail system or via DHL/FedEx. If I am charged taxes by a Japanese vendor, they better not charge me again when I get the package. Thankfully, it does not look like they are doing this for Canada just yet.
  8. You can get much better looking 3d printed or resin version for $5. I like that they are expanding the line, but the softness of the mold is embarrassing. vs. vs.
  9. Pretty much came to the same conclusion with the RG Hi-Nu. I am blessed to have some local shops that stock Bandai products so I have been able to find them about 1 month after release in Japan. With most Japanese e-retailers stopping international shipping of Gunpla, HLJ is one of the last reputable ones so I don't see the situation getting better anytime soon.
  10. I think they teased that the zakus would be released on at a time.
