  1. I guess it would also depending on which state or country you reside in. In the US most states have state sales tax that most sites are required to add on, not to mention an additional cost for shipping too. Both the sites you linked I did not see listings for the VF-25G but if their prices for the other valks ie. VF-25F/YF-29 are an indication $255*1.10 (ie. 10% states tax) + $15 shipping = $295.5. Their prices are a bit higher than the japan msrp (due to importing, logistics, overhead, etc.) Atm the japanese yen is still favorable for US conversion (yet that may change later at time of release for pay later sites), sites that require pay up front lock in the rate (assuming they don't try to hold a ransom for a price adjustment at time of release), ordering overseas buyers can save maybe 15-20$ at the cost of losing a night of sleep, lol.
  2. DAMN!!! As always your work is excellent that that MGEX look sweeeeet! I also see you got rid of the eyesore mold lines on the gold shoulder bits in the front/back. Mine's still sitting here in a box from MechaWarehouse. I got the wings of light 3rd party addon the other week. I heard there's a possible metal frame from another 3rd party addon in the works. I wouldn't be surprise if there'll be an led addon too eventually. IDK if i should wait until then, lol. KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!
  3. QC issues with the WWM VF-25? I don't think it (Alto) was released yet. Maybe the WWM YF-29 Max?
  4. aww damn I'm sorry to hear about the hassle. I don't ever hear or read many issues with GMC and missing/lost shipments. They do have a fb group too.
  5. https://tamashiiweb.com/item/14337/?wovn=en Five* locations around the world to host the event. NYC is suppose to be the first. https://tamashiiweb.com/special/tour/?wovn=en
  6. Two pics from my poopy camera lol. I don't own any HiRM but the blue doesn't appear to be painted, but molded.
  7. idk... that's bandai marketing for you. But to tbf I presume the ghost set was originally announced to compliment the first edition release of the VF-31AX Hayate. Bandai may prob bring the ghost to the PBUS market later idk...
  8. I think the Ghost set will only be available until the 5th and not start. Unless there was some kind of announcement made that it'll be extended/reopened.
  9. You cannot order from the links provided from the tamashii website as premium bandai japan blocks ips/regions outside of japan from accessing their site. Youll need a vpn or workaround to bypass just to view. The links provided on the pbjp sites will not sell even if you are able to access the page. They have extensive checks japan region issued credit card, mailing address etc. Youre better off with a 3rd party site like animeexport, etc. or middleman/proxy service.
  10. TBF the DX VF-1D pbjp preorder window had gone through something similar. It was open for a while, was available to order up until the close of the window and when it ended, released, all the FOMO and price gouging kicked in.... 🤦‍♂️
  11. GMC is usually pretty good. I've ordered so much through them had 0 orders (knock on wood) never arrive. The 4th was last Wednesday and it shipped from their LA warehouse via UPS. The shipping estimate on the site says 6-12 days, I would honestly wait. It's a huge box. Try contacting GMC or message Yong Luo on their facebook group. PP or your CC company should have no issue disputing if it doesn't arrive after the estimated time. Contact UPS too!
  12. Might definitely be O/T because the responses to the question. In short try to avoid Luna Park Store. My one experience and only experience (after reading many other bad exp...), after a week plus of the preordered item being in stock (they already marked up the price from PO listing) I had to actually email them to get them to start the package prep/shipping of my PreOrder. AND yes their shipping is much to be desired. No padding, nothing... probably one of the thinnest cardboard boxes that sized exactly the shape of the item box which was wrapped in a DHL bag. It arrived smushed, but the item luckily was not damaged. They charge more for shipping by weight and mark the weight down when it actually shipped so they paid way less. IIRC the difference was in the range of 15$, for that amount they could've at least thrown a lining of thin bubblewrap around it, but nope. TLDR: AVOID. Theyre near Nippon Yasan 2.0, lol. Don't buy into their premium account bs either. If a business was good it wouldn't stoop to such practices off the bat.
  13. Awesome work as always! One of my favorite MSs to boot! Yea I know the pain of the kit as well, but you did an excellent job and it shows!
  14. 6th+ because theyre looking to re-release Hayates, and '+' because maybe others (re-release mirage)? Idk lol...
