  1. That’s odd. HLJ is normally complaining to me that I have something in the PWH for more than 10 minutes. Saw that they are doing a second run of the nightingale for January 2022 as a Gundam Base web shop offering. Hopefully that will free up some scalper demand. My local shops usually offer Gundam Base web shop offerings, but I have not checked if there are markups.
  2. Bit more expensive at HLJ: https://www.hlj.com/blow-superior-vr-041h-yellow-type-few76544 https://www.hlj.com/mospeda-vr-052t-ray-type-few76543 https://www.hlj.com/mospeda-vr-052f-stick-type-few76542 7,700 yen each
  3. <rant> I hate that this hobby has gotten to the point where all these frick'n shops think it is OK to scalp products. It seems like only AmiAmi, HLJ and Hobby Search offer this at retail. The rest of them either cannot get supply directly from Bandai and are reselling items they can secure from Japan only vendors, or they are extra scummy and just marking up prices for extra profit! </rant> Back on topic, another scalper (defined as shops that do not sell items at MSRP, as far as I am concerned). I have never purchased from them before, but they had decent prices on other items previously yoyakunow: 34,520 yen https://www.yoyakunow.com/en/robots/3390-dx-chogokin-first-press-limited-edition-vf-31ax-kairos-plus-hayate-immelmann-use-macross-delta.html
  4. The X-Base system was available from Yodobashi Camera in Japan when I visited in 2019 so it was available at retail in the Japanese market, at least.
  5. It is actually called the Live Lance Heaven, the opposite of Deathscythe Hell...
  6. Hulk, Cap and Iron Man are already available: https://www.hlj.com/s-h-figuarts-hulk-avengers-assemble-edition-avengers-bans61292 https://www.hlj.com/s-h-figuarts-captain-america-avengers-assemble-edition-avengers-bans61284 https://www.hlj.com/s-h-figuarts-iron-man-mark-6-battle-damage-edition-avengers-bans61283 Thor is as well: https://www.hlj.com/s-h-figuarts-thor-avengers-assemble-edition-avengers-bans61285 Hawkeye and Black Widow are new announcments,
  7. Back in Mar-Apr timeframe, Amazon put up a pre-order for a new MG without any details, which was strange. No preview, no prototype, nothing. Today, they announced a new project, Gundam Seed Eclipse: https://www.gematsu.com/2021/05/new-mobile-suit-gundam-seed-game-in-development New movie, game, comic, etc. and they finally showed the new MG: Transformable (actually, foldable) and compatible with Striker Packs. Of course, there will be a P-Bandai Expansion Pack: What do you guys think of the design? I kind of like it, it has visual queues from the Freedom in the shoulders and legs.
  8. Love the group shot. I will have to build these one day, hopefully at least 1/2 a well as you did. I never got around to buying any of the Seed kits, but one of my local shops had a Strike China Version that came with all the strike parts so I splurged. Now I have a Black and Red Strike to try to recolor into something that looks... not black and red. I really liked the ZZ Ver. Ka until I built the FAZZ Ver. Ka and saw that they could put a proper elbow bend on a ZZ. Mind you, the FAZZ version does not transform fully, but the elbow articulation is terrible, especially for a modern MG.
  9. That's a good looking Gundam. Can you post a group shot? Such fantastic work on all of these. What's next on the plate, other than a nice long break? The CB suits?
  10. you need this and the Argama Deck from MegaHouse: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/125016
  11. Looks like they sold out of the re-issue, This link worked 4 or 5 days ago when I first saw it: https://www.hlj.com/1-60-scale-kanzen-henkei-vf-1j-armored-valkyrie-hikaru-ichijyo-type-reissue-aca82153
  12. Michael Bay presents "Zack Snyder's Robotech" in 4:3 ratio black&white, starring Shia Lebeuf as Rick Hunger, Will Smith as "Maxium" Sterling, Emma Stone as "Minmei" (asian, of course), Zendaya as "Misa" Hayes, and Gina Carano as "Miryia". With Dave Bautisa as "Ben" Dixon.
  13. Love the FFS kits. I used to read your stuff on the Gundam Eclipse forum. Is that forum still active? it was the only one I could find for FSS related topics.
  14. @Angesdad @Special Sauce I got my 1S Roy from Nin-Nin games without an issue during a pre-order. I think I was one of the lucky ones who got it at 10% off retail. I don't believe there have been issues reported with Nin-Nin Games in a while. Good luck, hope you guys get your stuff!
  15. Based on the photos, the white parts seem to have some depth to them so I would say the majority of them are color separated parts. See the details on leg in the promo shot below, as well as the white on the shield.
  16. Good Smile Company is doing a Dangaioh: https://www.hlj.com/moderoid-dangaioh-hyper-combat-unit-dangaioh-gsc13993
  17. Following on the heels of the IMS 1/100 Knight of Gold: IMS 1/100 Knight of Gold A-T (more info in May 2021) IMS 1/144 V Siren Prominence SAV 1/100 Blood Temple SAV 1/100 A-Tol BS (Event Limited)
  18. What a storied career. Always proud he was a fellow Canadian. RIP.
  19. Mazinger Z fans have something big to look forward to: https://hcj.jp/Z/home.html Magazine subscription. Not sure how many issues in total. Subscription has some really nice add-ins.
  20. I'm sure someone here would buy those decals off you..hint...hint...
  21. @anubis20 nice finish on the Blitz. Did you paint the kit? or just topcoat it? Are the decals 3rd party or the set from the Providence special edition?
  22. @sh9000 Good Smile Company. I had one on Pre-Order and had to forego it. There is also an ED-209 model kit coming in the same scale https://www.hlj.com/hagane-works-robocop-robocop-gsc12214 https://www.hlj.com/moderoid-ed-209-robocop-gsc13109
