I'm sure Macrossworld members know the frustration of acquiring DX chogokins due to scalpers. Scalpers/re-sellerrs have lately become a hot topic amongst Gunpla fans too. One would think this wouldn't be a problem with Gunpla as Bandai makes thousands of them. But, not so. Well, it seems that a Hobby Japan employee made tweets and blog posts defending scalpers. Ofcourse, that caused a storm. Hobby Japan recently apologized for the posts by the employee and as of today, fired the guy. Report by Hobby Watch (Google translate does an ok job): https://hobby.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1339956.html Or you can simply read the US report based on the Hobby Watch report: https://www.siliconera.com/hobby-japan-issues-apology-after-employee-defends-scalping-and-reselling-figures/ The firing (only in Japanese): http://hobbyjapan.co.jp/news_release/detail.html?id=6
I'm not sure if this is right section of the forum to post this since it's not really Macross model (but hey it's cool F-14 model), so please move if it's not. From Hachette Collections Japan, Introducing 1/32 F-14 Tomcat - 'Subscribe to magazine to build' series. Basic idea is you apply for subscription of their magazine ( from issue 1 to 100) and the magazine comes with pre-painted parts of 1/32 F-14. The complete model features remote controlled Engine turbine rotation, LED light up, Canopy opening, Wing open/close, landing gear open/close, tail wing movement, speed break flaps movement, sound FX..etc Also manual movement of main wing spoiler, main wing flaps, Check out the movies link below TV CM DVD introduction If I'm correct, Some Japanese bookstore in US can do the subscription for you. I'm gonna check Kinokuniya bookstore in my neighbor tomorrow. First Issue comes out on 1/21!~
http://www.empireonline.com/301/ Top Ten: 1. "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" 2. "The Godfather" 3. "The Dark Knight" 4. "The Shawshank Redemption" 5. "Pulp Fiction" 6. "Star Wars: A New Hope" 7. "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" 8. "Jaws" 9. "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" 10. "Inception" Some of these movies were indeed excellent, but this definitely isn't my Top 10 (for me The Shawshank Redemption is ranked #1) with most of these not even in my Top 10...but hey. -b.
