    I try and do my best to put good energy out into the universe. And that guy would have been freaking out! I don't want him feeling that way. That's crummy.

    The odds are thin!!!

    very nice man!  need more good ppl in the world!

    Not to get off topic, but @borgified recommended I look at Craigslist sometime ago. Found a retail case for $25, got it painted for like $250 and spent like $35 on LED lights.

    nice!  that's what they're built for.  good to re-use too.  esp with many brick and mortar stores often closing shop in the states

    Plenty.:D

    I kinda like the 1J naked (at least for now). It's very clean looking without a ton of color going on.

    I just got the Fighter and Gerwalk 1S's out of the box tonight in a short window. They're just kinda chucked in the cabinet. That entire shelf needs work. And hopefully I see strike packs in 4 weeks or so. Then I'll be back at zero again getting everything where I want it.

    with the head design and generally more realistic base color, i've always felt the 1j to be the most 'realistic' aircraft paint scheme.  other than going to a true low viz.  'champing' for those strike packs in dec...!

    I'm wondering when mine is going to turn up. Shipped last Wednesday, got to "Dispatch from outward office of exchange" on the tracking page on Saturday.

    No updates for the last couple of days. I'm home today so it's arrival would be a nice surprise.

    ya guys probably already know this.  but at least from my experiences in the states, once it's in our regional post offices (or whatever delivery service ya chose), you can more accurately track via the service's app.  usps, fedex, dhl (kinda sucks), ups, etc etc.  even ems numbers will track via the usps app and website.  i know that tracking via the japan post site has verbiage that's somewhat strange (for me to understand at least).

    Well hot damn.  I forgot about that and probably would've typed it/said the same.  And I would be the same about my VF-1S.  (Had to make this post DX 1/48 appropriate...haha)

    It's "champing" at the bit.

    Yes, it's painful being this pedantic.:rofl:

    hahaha!  very educational, but yeah ya get the point...  now that we're a bit more enlightened on the origins of sayings and equestrian minutiae... bring me more mech!

    Nice box, are you going to open it :)

    i know right!?  i'm actually holding off for a bit.  may give this one to a friend, if the latest hlj orders come through (and i can get one for me and my buddy).  but i got in touch with hlj, they're saying they suspect the late november orders probably won't be fulfilled, but they'll still keep the orders open for now.  they're wishing me luck, and i'm keeping my fingers crossed.  but keep expectations real...

  7. came back from a lil vacation a couple of days ago, and this was at the door.  was a bit nervous with mykombini being my first time ordering from them (and their site going down for maintenance during early delivery days).  but it worked out great!  got here faster than i thought i had paid for too!  also noticed, it looks like the 001 - 100's were done right for the marketing / box art images...

    OK, so I know the Hikki 1S is all the rage right now, and nobody really cares about the Max 1A at the moment, but it was all I could get while I was in Japan and I snapped a few photos at the in-law's backyard.

     

    But the washlet didn't turn out in this photo :(

    nice pics of another beautiful bird!  those hands are amazing!  so expressive and detailed!

    MyKombini is back up.  Order says "Waiting to ship".

    Both the regular price and the markup are not available.

    yeah, i touched base with them and they responded.  it sounded like the mykombini site was down for maintenance

    Mine is showing as not shippable also, an I the odd man out? 

    i think that this means that the items aren't fully processed on their end, so the shipping isn't determined yet...?  anyone got more solid info on that?

    Don't need that negativity! :P

    hahaha!  i pre-ordered another via hlj... but i anticipate anything happening...  so i'm trying to temper my disappointment...  that being said, i've always had great luck with hlj!

    Going by the prices I'm seeing on Amazon Japan/YJA, and how the scalpers are starting to drop back towards retail in an effort to offload.

    Saw it with the Max before, and that one's just barely over retail after release.

    this should be a good sign.  this should be as accessible to as many as possible.  fingers crossed...

    I know I’m suppose to be more excited for Roy but can’t wait to get Hikaru

    roy's valk is my fav too, but i suspect the pre-order madness for that is gonna leave many broken hearts in its wake...

    i'm so jealous. i hope there's still orders out there.

     

    if it makes ya feel any better, i had missed out on the initial pre-order madness.  racked with anxiety i caved and paid slightly more for this, but i passed on the max...  had to scratch the itch...
