Title: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: hoahoa on August 23, 2010, 06:39:37 PM
figured this isn't suited to the other 2 mech/gunpla sections (noticed we don't have a gunpla discussion section?? just news, series and games). oh well, i'll get the ball rolling. this has to be one of my favourite thread types on any gundam related forum.

cracked and bought the MG ex-s today :D here's to hoping a payment request for that liger mirage wont come within the next week or so = 3=

When I was in Sydney for BAKUC, I got the Speed Grade Gundam and the 1/144 Ground War set (which has the Gundam and hover tank from 08th MS team with interchangeable GM head (as per Karen's quick fix in the series)).

Recently, I have back ordered this book from HLJ : http://www.hlj.com/product/MDWMAGEX1009 (http://www.hlj.com/product/MDWMAGEX1009)

And a few months back I got this kit from e2046 : http://www.e2046.com/product.php?products_id=4271 (http://www.e2046.com/product.php?products_id=4271)

(noticed we don't have a gunpla discussion section?? just news, series and games).


Sorry I thought that was implied. Fixed. ;)

My GETs since fort gundam:

1/100 MG GM Ver. 2.0 (30th Anniversary Clear Parts Edition)
1/60 PG 00 Raiser Clear Parts Set
1/48 Mega Size Model RX-78-2 - Limited ANA Version (Thanks Rob!!)
Unicorn gasho-gasho
BB Unicorn gundam
BB Wing Zero & God Gundam set
1/100 MG Char's Gelgoog (30th Anniversary Clear Parts Edition)
1/100 MG Acguy

Built the Acguy already, and the BB WZC & God, currently up to my armpits in PG Astray leg parts, then ANA Gundam is next! Then maybe BB UNicorn, HG RX-78 7-11 ver., GM, Char's Gelgoog, Clear 00 raiser, somewhere in there will fall MG ReZel, and then maybe I'll start chipping away at my old backlog again  ;D

damn sonar... i'm kinda envious and not envious of your situation. a big backlog = lots of kits to work though, but then it probably means a spending problem XD. also want the ANA 1/48 >_<

That's just what I've bought since GAF 1.0 - My backlog is a bit more, but I've been chipping away at it the last few months.

E2046 was easy to order through, paid with Paypal and best of all I got the kit in less than 2 weeks.

The kit itself is flawless - it's a near perfect cast.

At that scale hands should be easy to scratch build unless I can find after market ones. I want to do something similar to the 1:60 Exia at Sydney bakuc...

Post by: Sonar on August 25, 2010, 08:04:45 AM
That Zaku looks cool. great box art. Look forward to seeing how it looks built. Those 1/100 NG Wing kits are getting pricey these days, so $30AUD is probably a reasonable score, particularly for a popular suit like the Epyon. They lack articulation but as I remember it the proportions are reasonable.

Gets since returning home:

HG Kshatriya
HG RX-78-2 ver. ANA (thanks Rob!)
HG ReZEL
MG Shin Musha Mk-II
HMM Blade Liger
Hasegawa 1/48 F-14D (Azusa Miura ver.) [it was on sale, 25$ from the normal 60+. not one word.]

Shipping on the liger is absolutely absurd,  4900 yen. 51 runners since they can't do multicolored runners like bandai...oh injection molding, how you spoiled me. Gonna have to sell some stuff before the 31st to pay for that one :(
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Hemish on August 25, 2010, 01:35:07 PM
Thats alot for shipping? Was it EMS?
My order above from hlj was only 3960 to ship ems that was 5 kits all up
Maybe the Liger box is alot bigger than the Lightning Sikes.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on August 25, 2010, 01:44:52 PM
50 odd runners is on par or more than a PG gunpla kit.

Post by: lupes on August 25, 2010, 02:06:40 PM
Yeah. I wish I could find the picture again but the box is MASSIVE compared to the other zoids kits. It was EMS though, it's the only way I ship anything.

HLJ Order came in today pretty much on the 14 day mark since it was posted.

The Lightning Sikes box is only slightly larger than the Command wolf and after having a quick browse through the instructions looks like a few of the seam issues are taken care of.

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Wolfman X on September 11, 2010, 05:43:44 PM
its just very adhesive but stuff can be done with this product. should check on youtube. the thing can produce chromelike effects and in higher quality then some other chrome powdered products. as for the product alone, im planning to use it on areas like verniers and pistons for example. though was told to use black as a base then use the ginsan onto it to give it a better chrome finish. but time will tell when i start using it

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on September 29, 2010, 10:12:44 PM
Hopefully external links are OK!

Pics I took
http://www.flickr.com/photos/tristanforsyth/sets/72157624905348119/  .....better photo set as I tore in to building/assemblying an entire box on the spot with my daughter

http://www.flickr.com/photos/tristanforsyth/sets/72157624925541593/  .......second box turned up later that day but I didnt take many photos.

Each figure consists of 5-10 parts and stand about 5-10 cm tall. Most come with a stand and are all prepainted so you just put them together. I believe they are designed as a counter/cash register style 'quick purchase' as the boxes are small. When I was in Japan last year, I saw them priced at around 300-500 yen.

I like them as if you buy them by the counter sized box, you can get up to 15 small models that you can display for around AU$10-20 which my daughter (5 years old) can assemble quite easily!! (plus she tries to kit bash them which is really funny as Im not brave enough to mix kits!)

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on September 30, 2010, 10:56:19 AM
the fun is not knowing what you are going to get in the box!
eg...one of the sets I bought from HLJ has three of the same model in it!
Works out well as I can give one to the Japanese teacher at work, one for my classroom desk (kids like to look at my stuff!) and one for the shelves at home!
Just need to work out a glue that wont melt the model so the ones for school dont fall apart! (softish 'rubber' so Im guessing my Tamiya cements are not the best option!)

Should add in Ive just bought a HG00 1/144 00 Gundam (the GN 0000)...was watching 00 and liked it!
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on September 30, 2010, 11:07:29 AM
I've used Tamiya cement on them before. It works fine you just use it sparingly and apply it to both surfaces and hold them together for about a minute until the melted plastic starts to set. We're talking joints and stuff yeah? I use Tamiya extra thin cement for delicate jobs like this.

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on September 30, 2010, 11:13:23 AM
Will try the the thin cement on the trading kits then!
I have used it (sparingly) on 'delicate' gundam/zaku parts before (ie the head eg fins) and realised its not the best thing to do! (my excuse was it was simulated battle damage.........)
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on September 30, 2010, 11:37:35 AM
Do you understand how it works?

Model cement is not 'glue' per say. It doesn't use an adhesive to bond the surfaces. It causes a chemical reaction with the plastic which makes it melt slightly and fuse together. Therefore there is not a solvent tha can undo it once it's done. If you 'weld' two pieces together and make a mistake it's usually time to break out the saw.

Be wary using it on your gashapon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gashapon)/trading figures as they are a softer vinyl/pvc and as such will be far more susceptible to the 'melting' effect. It will make the colour run so be careful not to get it anywhere you don't want it. Use it sparingly and you will be fine.

I know how the cement works (I used a lot of it when I was a kid on my plane models so I know its not glue!). I just wasnt sure if it would work on PVC/vinyl rubber given that even the smallest drop on a delicate part is disastrous! (ie parts fall apart etc!)

Might stick with something else on the trading kits as I dont trust myself!
Thanks again for the advice....
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on September 30, 2010, 12:13:57 PM
The other option would be superglue I guess, but superglue dries rock hard and as such is not the best option for soft/flexible joints. As I mentioned I've used cement on these things before and it's worked well. Either will work.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: random on September 30, 2010, 12:22:50 PM
another option could be to jam a bit of blue tack in there,
it wont be a fuse fix but it may help bits from falling out/off as much ;)

yup d-style is their super deformed line. they're more pricy than sd/bb's but they have a hell of a lot more detail and actually feel like a HG. though they dont have that articulation in the legs. they also have a d-style ingram for the patlabor fans.

it was mr toys toyworld on queen st, on the top end near the casino. i'll check out their myer centre store to see if they have anything on friday most likely.

Ghastly proportions and in my non-preferred scale, but the 1/100's are discontinued and run at $30 or more plus shipping on fleaBay and I succumbed to a late night whim as these are on my Things with Gatlings to Buy list and cheap cheap cheap. They'll end up costing me nine bucks each delivered. Should be a challenge. Have to exercise some restraint as my Gunpla expenses this month include the Mechaskunk group order, MG ReZEL to order from HLJ, Gundam Zeta Vol.1 DVD, and I wanted to spend some loot on the website too.

I get the GFF metal 0 gundam from eBay when the US dollars is quite low (but no as low as now).  It should be here within week.  I also buy a SD command gundam and a GFF kit from HLJ when the sales are still on.  It is a big spending but I will spend more when I go to japan.

Post by: tristan on October 15, 2010, 09:15:24 PM
Those two prices on the HLJ site are mighty tempting sonar (~$14 shipped each) as I like really like the look of those two models (I dont mind the 1/100! :P )

But like jnhchan, I too am going to Japan (next July) and as Im planning on spending up really big there (taking a massive suitcase and just a change or two of clothes.... HA!!), I need to watch my spending now!!!

DAMNIT...those kits are tempting.....

Just do it dude!! ^^ You'd be hard pressed to find those on the dustiest back room shelf of the dingiest alley store in Japan I reckon. They're fairly old and not very popular.

Then we can feed off each other's builds!

Just Plumped for a MG Ex-s  ;D  Mind you, I've been having a peruse about the interwebs, and found a few that I'd like to purchase in the future. I don't suppose there is any chance Bandai will ever do a MG Turn X?

I'd say there's a good chance. May not be now or even next year but it will happen. Probably sooner than later. Waiting for designs to get the MG treatment is a favourite and bitter past time of many a Gunplar.

Made my 1st order through HLJ last night  ;D

Got plenty of kits waiting to be done but I found it a bit hard to say no to the HLJ sale they have going on at the moment, and it's always nice to support a GAF sponsor

I picked up 4 kits.... 3 for me and one for my girl to have a crack at.... She is slowly coming to the darkside  ;)

I ordered....

1/100 MG Destiny Gundam..... this one is for the girl, she likes his wings

http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN962030 (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN962030)

http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN909464 (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN909464)

1/1 Oboro - Pest X San's transformable bike from Koto. Comes with what looks like two RUBBER tyres... Bandai needs to get off its lazy arse cause Kotobukiya's kit engineering has progressed leaps and bounds. Who needs multiple colours on a single runner anyways!!!... although methinks it helps keep the costs down...

A supplier friend of mine actually claims that Koto kits aren't overpriced - it is Bandai's kits that are underpriced!!!

Can I say how much I love my wife?

We went to Rhodes (Sydney) to go to Ikea yesterday. After dragging me and the kids through there (Ikea seriously does nothing for me though I did see some good display cases!), she tells me to take the kids to get something to eat and she will join us 'soon'. She comes back with a 1/144 HGUC GP02A Type MLRS (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN948830) and Gamiris Battle Air Ship (and two 000 brushes!) from Hobbyco @ Rhodes and gives them to me to say thankyou for putting up with her dragging me through Ikea!

Panda put the order in for me but it seems there was a stock count error or the like

but no matter, as I picked it up anyway from my local comic shop. about $5 to $10 more but was the original plan before we saw the hlj postage discount

but already have a few kits to get through, these are meant to be for when I am recovering from future surgery
but if that doesn't happen, will start building them soon :)

Tristan:  Cannot believe you can find so much old stock.  I think most of them are out of print now.. 

Well, I just get a BB Command Gundam from ebay.  It is 20 years old kit and it is one of my fav kit when i was a kid.  Cannot believe i can find it in ebay. 
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on November 18, 2010, 05:35:05 PM
@jnchan...lol. Yes, I do like the old kits. Its the box art as it reminds me of the mech I watched as a kid! Whilst the newer kits are good to build as they are engineered well re seam lines etc, the old kits are more fun IMO. Found a batch of them on Hobbywave at about $10 each so I had to buy them ;/

@sonar...I thought that as well but $22 for both of them was worth the risk. I've snapfitted the 1/144 and it went together like a dream. Only one loose joint (elbow joint) which may need some stiffening for posing!
The instructions are interesting. There were two sets of instructions.  One full colour Japanese on glossy paper etc just like we are all used to. The English (and French, Spanish and German) instructions are also glossy but dont have the colour images or the paint chart that you see in the Japanese guides. Realistically, there is no difference between the English and Japanese re instructions.....pretty well much the same!
If it is a knock off, its a good one. Even the boxes were shrinkwrapped and when unwrapped, had that 'Old' smell about them. (the box dates them to 1994). It also lists on both of the boxes that the model is distributed by Bandai America, Bandai France, Bandai Spain, Bandai Germany and Bandai England (with addresses)!

There is one typo on one of the boxes though.....

Had to go to Sydney Town Hall today to watch my niece perform at the State finals for Physical Culture (not as exciting as it sounds.......) so I escaped for 30 minutes and visited Hobbyco (which is across the street for non-Sydney siders)

Came back with

Thought I would get in trouble for leaving without saying anything but the other half said it was OK for having to go to Town Hall to watch Physi! (again, not as fun as it sounds........)


Seriously, there was so much there that I could have walked out with but decided to go with bang for my buck as I only had $100 on me!

Tristan, you seemed to have picked up all the cheap HGUC kits ;) I'm sure those are some great buys. Lemme know if you want to pick up some 00 kits for cheap :P
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on November 29, 2010, 07:03:20 AM
yeah....Im a cheap bastard!!!

Hobbyco actually had a lot of sub $20 and $30 kits which I was surprised by.


Kits to practice air brushing on and the little Zaku is for my 5 year old to paint (though from a collectors POV, its probably the most valuable to me because of its age!)


I almost walked out with 2 MG kits instead of the 5 I bought....maybe next time!

My latest purchase was the crossbone full cloth, I already had the ver ka. But I really wanted to full cloth, after alot of searching I found one at games infinity at market city in Sydney, they're fairly overpriced but I couldn't find the kit anywhere and was more than happy to pay the price. Next week however Im passing up a new kit and buying my first compressor and airbrush, really looking forward to getting it and making my models more personalized to my tastes, long road ahead of trial and error and practice though, lol

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on December 23, 2010, 08:32:10 AM
They were sold out of the Leopard (which is one I seriously wanted). Mysteries of the checkout system at HLJ. Instock (not low stock) on the order page but when I got the email confirmation, it had shifted to out of stock/ to be restocked (which held up my order). Ended up cancelling it so my order could ship as two (?) other of my models went to low stock after about a fortnight and I didnt want to risk losing them. May order the Leopard at a later date as its a nice little model!

Yeah, I went a bit stupid on the after market parts....now have to use them!

It's pretty simple really, someone places and order for the last item before you place your order and when their payment is confirmed the system is updated and you miss out. It is the only fair way to do it, if they updated in real time everyone who places an order and then cancels or fails to pay would be reserving stock unnecessarily when it could be going to fill the next order for someone who actually will pay, such as you.

yeah at first i bought 20, and that was nowhere near enough, so thats why i've now decided to make another 100, might be an idea to organise a group buy from Farnell(element14) or electus since you can get the small clips real cheap if you buy in bulk, and skewers are cheap

Pre-ordered just arrived (paid December 28 so I didnt break my new year resolution :D), pretty late for Australia Post. Its Hobby Japan February issue + GN Sword Full Saber. Just flicked through some pages, there's a step by step guide to MG-fy (extra panel line, face lift, extending parts) the HG Qan(T), the end result is amazing I must say. Also its the 500th issue, so its extra thick (or so I think it says on the cover).

PS: Turned on by all the nice Gundam photo.

OK, so HLJ took my money for the MG G Gundam and the Titans Mk 2 as well as the red marker but I haven't received an invoice and the website says that it's still processing the order.

Is this common?
Especially since they said that they were low stock on all items.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: TheGhostofZeon on January 07, 2011, 05:05:41 PM
Some times there is a lag between payment going through and it updating on the site. I find this happens with a few other online stores as well.

They should have sent a confirmation email when you first made the order. Keep checking the site until they update it (I'd imagine that they are a little behind at the moment while they catch up with the orders made over their holiday break).

Don't want it turning up when I'm away in Perth later this month. :\

Send them a polite email following it up. It's been a while since you placed the order. They quite frequently mention about emails getting lost in spam filters in their FAQ's. Actually my first experience with HLJ was in retrieving an order confirmation that got filtered. They were very helpful.

Shouldn't be the filters because have that sorted from a miss order last year.

am guessing that it will come through on Monday or so.
If not, shall contact them and ask because I need receipt for shipping and such.

I just think it's all the stuff they have to deal with coming back from the New Year period.
Just have to vent and ask what's going on and is this normal but am sure it will be resolved soon.

I'm mainly concerned with the postage price, so I know how much it is so I can calculate for my next few orders -which I plan to make in Feb when I have money and the new stuff I want comes out.

So am not discouraged, just concerned in a way.

Finally...they have arrived!

NB: I ordered these last year at the start of December from HW Japan as they were the only place that had the Hyaku Shiki in stock (at a reasonable price....ebay.... ergh). Anyway, was confidant with purchasing from them as I had heard very good things about them and they do have a good reputation in Japan but......the parcel disappeared somewhere between Japan and Australia!.

Anyway, ater many emails and phonecalls, my last purchase from 2010 finally turned up!!!

My latest kits are a HG 1/144 Masurao, SD 00 Qan(t) and a 30th anniversary MG Force Impulse with clear parts. Also have a 1/100 NG cherudim gundam (designers color ver.(think someone posted some pics of this same kit recently on the finished forum)). The impulse and the 00 Qan(t) have been built already and I think I'll work on the masurao next. I'll try get some pics up soon.

Also planning on gettin my hands on a PG Zeta Gundam as I've just finished watching that season and love the suit. Anyone know anything about the pg zeta and how it all fits like is it a good kit and what not.

Got myself and MG 30th anniversary G Gundam as well as an MG Gundam Exia Ignition Mode. One question about the exia as I haven't had. Proper look at the pieces yet, and I can't tell just by looking at the instructions, do I make both the damaged AND undamaged parts? Or do I have to make a choice as to if I make it damaged or whole eg. The GN Sword and the head
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: zenma5ter on February 20, 2011, 10:02:51 PM
If I am not mistaken, you have to switch parts for the head, not too sure bout the sword though.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Joe on February 21, 2011, 05:19:51 AM
Exia Ignition mode  comes with everything you need to build one Exia, either Factory Fresh of Damaged.  The nice thing is, though, if you buy a normal exia, you can use the Repair parts on it, to have a damaged Exia and build the Ignition mode normal.  Only thing is, you won't have light up parts for your Repair version in that case.

Luckily these folks (http://www.hmshop.biz/eshop/index.php?route=common/home) sell an after market version of the LED used in Exia, 00 Qan[T], and even for the GN-X.

She picked the zaku up and started to walk out with it but the box was too much for her. I kid you not.)

Also bought 2 1/288 gashapon gundams for my nephews (a gouf and a zaku ) which they promptly destroyed....

Sucks to hear Wolf. Ive never had a problem with it personally. I recently had a dispute with a seller through paypal and they were great through out it.

Also Wolf, if you want, I can pay for the LEDs from HM and I'll send them to you. When you get them just transfer the money to my bank account. Everyone wins.

Don't feel in a rut, drifand, about the backlog.  I've got 60 unbuilt kits in my closet, 2 on the way here and 2 more on pre-order.  Uhg, I need to stop buying kits...

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Joe on February 23, 2011, 02:21:14 AM
Yep!  About half of them are old glue togethers from the 0079 series that I have no idea when I'll get to.  The rest are MG, one PG, the two RG released so far, and a few 1/144 HG kits.  Most should be finished this year. Of course, I'm mostly just a lazy snapper with a few tricks, so it's not really a lot of work being done :-P.

I tried to go one month built and paint one but is hard when you are busy at work, and since I am thinking of doing a diorama this one was going to take way longer.

I figured after their big push of awesome stuff last year, Bandai would slow it down a touch in 2011!  But now I'm definitely going to pre-order the latest announced MG kits, Epyon and 00 Raiser.  I've already pre-ordered MG Deathscythe Hell Custom and MG Shenlong Ver Ka  and I might as well pick up RG Aile Strike...

Here's my latest purchase. A B-Club hover truck from 08th MS Team.

Got it from Mandarake. They are not that common and the package is marked For Japan Only. Not sure why they only originally sold them in Japan.

Just reading a few of the above threads about how many kits people have, I would have to be one of the worst hoarders going  ;) I haven't really had anywhere to build kits for the last few years and they have just kept piling up. Just because I can't build them doesn't mean I can't buy them  8). At last count I've got 113 Gundam kits (mostly HG) in the wings and about double that again of other types  ::) I have made a dent just recently as I've now got somewhere to work and have punched out about 1 a week (all mostly out of the box) for the last couple of months.

My ultimate aim is to build shelves to put them on as they are all in plastic tubs at the moment. Once the shelves are done I won't have to go to a hobby shop to gawk at all the kits. I keep a spreadsheet of what I've got, where it came from and what it cost for insurance purposes and it's telling me I've got 461 kits  :o. Just as well I don't have any kids to feed  :D
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Joe on February 24, 2011, 04:11:31 PM
Neat, I keep a spreadsheet of my collection too, I don't have where it came from, but price, qty, and condition (built or not, what stage of build, etc.).  I'm at 237 kits total inventory.  I then have a second sheet for my unbuilt collection, and a third for kits I want (this is mostly so my fiance will always have gift ideas).  I guess, thegunny, great minds think alike!

I think I am crazy enough but seem that I am just a normal guy compare to Joe.

  I have purchase 1/100 Ex model Black tiger with 50% off in Animasia.  It is so cheap that it is cheaper than the orginal Japan price.  I also purchase 1/100 VF-29 alto custom from HLJ and Composite Ver.Ka Captain Haruhi Custom General Purpose Multi-domain Humanoid Exoskeletal Combat Armor in 1999.  Unluckly, both of them are shipping to adelaide address so i cannot see it until next month when i go back to adelaide.

I pre-order the MG 00 Raiser as well and the Metal grade seven sword should be out late of this month.

Have slowly been collecting a few items over the past months for 2 projects. The last of the bits arriving today.

The first lot will be used to depict the demise of a DOM  :dom:
(http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb411/thegunny2/deaddom.jpg)

The second lot are a bit more than your average gate keepers. Tickets please  :o
(http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb411/thegunny2/guardians.jpg)

May have to revisit the gate, as even though it is in the same scale it's bloody microscopic compared to the Gundams.

All I have to do now is finish the 6 Zaku I'm building for my 6 RX-78's to bash up  :P

@Gunny: The Musha mk 2 is a very funny kit to build.
I really enjoyed it, just be mindful of how fragile the gold parts on it can be.

@Alpha: dare I ask why two Kshatriya kits or is one just to build and the other to add the extra parts to?

I just really liked the look of this kit,I think it has many display possibilities.
One will receive the B club binders(which are amazingly detailed,every part opens !!-will post some pics soon) and the
other may get a different color scheme.
Another idea is that I may build them as a pair,and display one with the binders closed and the other in full open attack mode with the aftermarket binders.

Long term project that I do not intend starting anytime soon,want to do some more of the SD and HG's first to get my skills up to scratch.

the Musha mk 2 is fan-effing-tastic as a kit! :D \m/
One of my faves, despit the fiddly parts with the pipes and the gold.
looks magnificent and poses really well.
what are the Balls like?

Have not cracked the boxes open as such but they look like a good build (for a 1/144) via the guide and through the bags!

Didnt realise the Musha was so big.....it came in its own HLJ box.

Will be looking at building it when I feel a little confident time wise

Just finished one ball off in about 30 minutes... cute little sucker!

@ Wolfman....Will have a look at the musha tomorrow (its down stairs and its too cold to go outside!) and if I can work it out, Ill let you know (though I think the seam line will be covered by the helmet (which will probably have its own seam line!) )

Since my birthday is coming up I thought I better put a order through :)

Happy upcoming birthday!
The sinanju is an awesome kit,too many other little jobs on the go before I attempt mine.
I recently got the BB exia,raiser and this kit and the detail is really cool.You will enjoy it!

I too am curious as to the X 2 ..

1/144 Wing Zero with figure
MG V-Dash!
2x 1/35 Lancelot
2x 1/35 Vincent Commander Types

All from HLJ.  The Code Geass kits, I got one for myself and one for the fiance, she loves CG.
Then I went and ordered about 30 action bases of various styles and colors because the little woman, God bless her, finally agreed to let me put shelves up in the office/work room to display my models all along the top of two walls!  Those I bought from Gundamstoreandmore.com

Post by: tristan on April 19, 2011, 06:57:44 PM
@Wolfman...If Im reading the manual right, the face is built into the helmet but there is a seam line across the middle of teh helmet where the two sides join up (though it looks really easy to hide according to the manual)

@Hemish...would be curious to hear how those files go
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Wolfman X on April 19, 2011, 07:04:11 PM
There is a small seamline though you can either glue n clean it off with an abrasive or somehow make it look like another panel line

Nice haul Hem. Heaps keen to see your ReZEL MkII.

Damn it is hard to resist the urge to splurge on this HLJ sale. So many things I want, but I'll be in Japan in less than a fortnight and I will get much greater pleasure from the physical shopping experience.

After some delay (and most of my break gone), my loot arrives. For kits, I've got the MG Hi-Nu, Qan[t], FA Gundam, Rezel, Stike Freedom, Sword Impulse and D-Style Chibi Gunbuster. Other stuff includes, Gundam markers, line scribers, brushes, a MSG Freestyle shield and action bases.

I immediately crack open the Sword Impulse and built the Core Splendor.

I have the Force Impulse and it was a fun build, though I'm sorely tempted to get that sword version as well (love the beam boomerangs)
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: zenma5ter on April 29, 2011, 04:12:32 PM
@Shifty: nice and arse-clenchingly expensive. All worth it though, this should last me for years (at the rate I am going through them) :D

@Zesaviourta: Had a look at most of the armor, they are very detailed. I was tempted to get the Force Impulse instead of this one as HLJ's stock of the Sword gets nill pretty quickly. I was lucky that they had them in stock during the sale.

And three days is insane Hemish..... Makes you wonder at times why "they" (whoever they are!) cant find a happy medium between 3 days and 3 weeks from Japan (and most of Asia) when it comes to postage as it so inconsistent at times!

back on thread....just paid for a 1/100 Ball Ver Ka. and a 1/1700 Whitebase!

I'm sure you will mate half on half off is a great idea. It just seems a shame to cover up all those internals. Weird and flattering at the same time ha ha ha

Thank also for keeping an eye out for the Byg Zam.....very generous offer!
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on May 03, 2011, 10:11:03 AM
Thanks guys. Haha I used to tell the guys at work that the 'Pocari' was a small Japanese bear like creature while drinking from a Pocari sweat bottle. These days I prefer Aquarius, less sweet and doesn't repeat on me like Pocari.

RG Strike has 2 legs, a waist and an arm assembled. Snap fitting and panel lining with grey as I go, minimal nub cleaning only as I only bought a basic set of tools to relax and snap with while I'm here. RG Strike was :y: 2000 and I didn't go to a particularly cheap place for it either. Going to do full stickers and show a comparison to Gundam Guy's full painted version, I think it will look pretty sweet OOB. Amazing amount of detail crammed into a tiny space with these things. Tempted to pick up the RX-78 and Zaku as well.. Think I'll grab the SD Sinanju next though. :y: 800 is hard to argue with.

Scored these bad boys on the way through Osaka from Gundam no Kuji (lucky dip) promotion currently running at Lawson Combini. Will make good gym towels ;D

Plus a bonus shot of the Gundam that started it all for me. Look what happens when you leave a PG out in the open for many years :'(
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on May 03, 2011, 04:44:19 PM
Nice pickup!!

I love Lawsons...basically lived out of there for two weeks when I was in Japan in 09. I seriously wish we had something like it here in Oz re fresh and cheap food (stress on the fresh)

*sigh* one day....
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on May 04, 2011, 09:19:50 AM
I went for a walk to the local Lawson up the road for more beer last night and they didn't have the lucky dip. I tried to ask the clerk but I couldn't understand his answer  :-[ Maybe it was exclusive to Osaka. The fresh food is magnificent in combini. Had a killer soba combo and a yummy katsu sandwich for dinner when we arrived the other night.

Yesterday's gets include the new Action Base 3 :y: 599, wet and dry sandpaper in 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1200 grits :y: 169, ultra fine sandpaper set in 1000, 2000, 3000 grits :y: 360, Fusion Works Converge ReZEL :y: 389, and Mega Sized Model Zaku (Grunt) :y: 5990 (courtesy of Otosan! Arigatou!)  - Went with the grunt over the Char version solely to see a Bazooka in 1/48 scale  :o

@ Zeta, I think they are meant for 1/144's but you can join them together to make a bigger base which is what I plan on doing to shoot photo's of my MG's

looking at this thread, am guessing everyone owns a Mushe mk II by now.
Is the most common sale item on our buying sites and is a effing awesome kit! \m/

Damn you, I so want some of those Unicorn Gatlings :D

I ordered 5 copies of the Magazine so I would have plenty for my current projects. GG Infinite (http://gginfinite.com/GUNDAM_UC_ACE_VOL2.html) was selling them but they now appear to be OOS. I still have my original, unopened Gundam UC Novel 4 version Gatlings x 2 so I may consider selling two of my Gundam ACE versions if the price is right. Remember, you can always pick up the recasts from Hobbymate for a reasonable price in 1/100 (http://myhmshop.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=64) and 1/144 scale (http://myhmshop.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=65).

Shifty I'm eager to see the fruits of your build off. That Qubeley box art is absolutely sick.

Loving the caning this thread is getting atm.

I finally get to go to my Gundam mecca today. This is the store I've been going to for years and they've always had the best range and the lowest prices. However today it saddens me to see that their range is greatly reduced, their prices are no longer the best. They aren't even stocking RG Strike yet. They had no SD Sinanju. Their cheap trading figures that used to be so plentiful are all but non existent. I was ready to splurge, but the MG range was lacklustre to say the most. No MG Perfect Zeong pretty much killed the experience for me as I was sure they'd have it. They had the HG Psycho but that is available in a store that is stocking RG Strike and SD sinanju so I'd rather go back and look there. I am disappoint. :'(

I couldn't leave empty handed though..



Anyone catch the new range of Gundam shirts at Uniqlo (http://store.uniqlo.com/jp/store/feature/ut/gundam/)? GET.

MS-06J Zaku Katsumi Kawaguchi Produce Version get. This bad boy comes with waterslide decals for Kawaguchi's custom regiment markings (of which he is the foremost authority - winning read about that @ mechatalk (http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=10365&view=next)) and also MG Kampfer weapons, the Giant Bazooka, Shottie, Sturm Faust and grenade. Win.

You have no idea the time and effort that goes into a post like this with this many reference links xD

Anyone remember my Zaku staku's I posted on GAF 1.0? I found a set of GM Stack's too ;)

Also grabbed a small scale pin vise (I'm tired of swapping the chuck around in my pin vise to alternate between the 0.8mm bit and the 1mm bit), a set of bits ranging from 0.3mm to 0.8mm, a can of Topcoat and a brown gundam panel line marker for the RG Strike and a Gouf dangely for my phone ;D

I've never had a problem bringing lots of models into the country.

Yeah, it has special Kawaguchi waterslide decals ;D

Only one on the shelf mate, sorry! (Part of the attraction). Also keeping an eye out for your koto gatlings. Only koto weapon I've seen so far is that hideous chainsaw thing. My paradise didn't even have any decent minus molds or detail parts. I may end up just doing a HLJ order if things don't get more interesting in Osaka, which I'm pretty sure they will.

Almost gagged when I saw a big bunch of Sinanju decals, until I realised they were the 1/144 ones ..

@Sonar - Nice job scoring that MS-06J Zaku (Katsumi Kawaguchi Ver.). I'd be willing to sell a kidney to get one of those or the R1 A Baoa Qu Defense Squadron Ver.

@Infinity - Awesome haul there with the zoids. so Jelly ~~~ I managed to get the Geno-breaker when HLJ was having one of their 50% off shipping sales. saved a bundle
Just waiting for the Geno-saurer (Raven Custom) to be released in August - so glad Koto seem to have fixed up the neck :)

'ne way, had not one but three packages arrive for me on Friday. Was going to post this yesterday, but I was busy putting the contents of pkg #2 together  ^_^

pkg 1*:

love how they included what can only be described as a drool shield with the motherboard

FAZZ/anything big for that matter (S Gundam, Hi-Nu) costs about 1.5x - 2x the SRP around here due to ridiculous shipping costs involved. I even saw a FAZZ ON SALE (online hobby shop in the country) for around 6.3k yen, not including shipping. Makes me think I'm lucky. :D

It is going to be a very busy month with Minifest a week before the Melbourne Model Expo. So this is going to be busy for us all. mmmm don't think I will have time to get that plywood piece ready for the Model Expo, as I am still searching for the train I want to cut up to look like it has been in the warzone with the 1/144 gundams and how to get more Zaku's of the same scale involved!

Post by: Sonar on May 10, 2011, 12:00:02 AM
Deep breath..

Here we go...

Cast in order of appearance:

Gachapon with amazing number of parts

Trading figures (this is like my fifth ReZEL trading figure! Not that I'm complaining.. It's luck of the draw on opening so I guess I'm lucky really)

The thing behind the Reborn's Gundam is a notebook I scored in a lucky dip (found one more!)

Rhinestones/Monoeyes/Rifle scopes from :y: 100 shop

MG Perfect Zeong - I like the feeling you get when a gunpla box is so big it has a carry handle. This is on par with PG box size. Bigger than some and smaller than others but not by much. At 36cm tall it will give my Mega Size RX & Zaku a run for their money! I came here wanting BIG gunpla.. This and the Mega Size Zaku were pretty much my prime objectives, along with the HG Psycho which I didn't end up getting cos I got side tracked by a fascination with small gunpla hahaha..

...continued

:haro:

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on May 10, 2011, 12:28:28 AM
Continued.

MG FAZZ - Totally inspired by the suggestion about ten pages back, Kamm's WIP over at MAC (http://boards.themacforums.com/topic/7450526/8/#new) , and Busterbeam's post (http://plamoaddiction.blogspot.com/2011/04/zz-gundam-redux.html). Cheers for that guys. I might never have got this otherwise. The bulkiness of the Double Zeta has taken a long time to grow on me. Truthfully it's probably mostly the gun that I love about this.

SD Sinanju was another definite on my shopping list. Tonghoo's WIP (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php?topic=1272.0) sealed the deal and I patiently waited for the best price, which turned out to be :y: 746 or something ridiculous like that.

Then something wierd happened...

I had been growing a steady fascination with these little old boxes littered around the place.. Mokana Man, GoZ, and thegunny are probably partially to blame thank for this unusual interest in old and oddball scaled kits. Anyway I ended up with far more of them than I thought I would. They're cheaper than trading figures so it's hard to say no. NOOOOOO!!!

I have a special fondness for ZZ designs but I tried to avoid the things I knew I could get more recent versions of.

1/144 NG Hamma Hamma

1/144 NG GP01 - One of my all time fave Gundam suits. Will be interesting to compare this to my HG GP01, then buy the MG and PG and have the set! ;D (Until they announce the MG Ver.2.0in a few days I'm betting)

1/220 NG Byarlant - Cool looking mech. I'm already dreading the amount of work these kits will take :'(

1/1200 NG Musai Class Cruiser - Cool. nuffsaid

1/550 NG Elmeth - Lalah was calling me..

1/550 Byg Zam - Whatup Mokana Man!

1/2400 NG White Base - Couldn't say no

...continued
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Sonar on May 10, 2011, 12:35:29 AM
Finally,

1/144 NG Magella Class Attack Tank - with treads!

Oh btw the Elmeth has a 1/550 scale Gelgoog ;D

SD Jegan - where did this come from? Totally missed it. Score.

HG Avalanche Exia for my boy

...and lastly the stack in all it's glory. Couldn't be happier with my purchases ;D ;D ;D

Recap:

3 x MG's
1 x Mega Size Model
1 x RG
1 x HG
2 x SD
8 x NG
5 x Unicorn gatlings
1 x Unicorn 3 BD
5 x Gashopon
3 x Lucky dip prizes
Spare Set of basic tools to leave in Japan
..and an action base 3.

Oh.. forgot the shirts.. Have to post them tomorrow ;D

and Iceman, I'm travelling through Osaka. Not really doing much shopping there.

Post by: Sonar on May 10, 2011, 01:34:17 AM
They are available only at Uniqlo stores in Japan and via their website within Japan. Worse still the largest size is Japanese 2XL which is barely an Aussie XL, and 2XL is only available online and were sold out when I checked back. I wound up buying a couple of XL's from a store but they are pretty tight. I'll need to lose another 10kg to fit them reasonably.

I have 80kg of luggage allowance. ;D

Benefit of travelling with the family! All our stuff fits into one suitcase and a couple of backpacks, leaving about 60 odd kilo's for all the stuff we've bought. Even with all the kid's new toys we won't even get close to 80kg. It is more than we are physically able to carry with two kids in tow. Today is packing day actually. Everything goes into a couple of boxes which we send via freight service to the airport for collection when we leave on Saturday. I've got this on lock, been doing it for years.. ;)

There are a lot of marker there.    If you don't want the Unicorn Gatling gun, you can sell it to me.

I'll call your Perfect Zeong with...Perfect Gundam.  That is, when you decide to build it, we can have a grudge match. (preferably not within the next 3 months :X)

5x2kg big-fat-reference books killed my luggage allowance when I went to Japan last year.  They also killed my back. I think the only kit I bought was a castle, didn't find the retail price all that appealing (mind you pre-tsunami), and I spend all my budget on horse sashimi, puff fish & whale meat.

Ironically re whale meat, it was a news piece regarding Sea Shepherd on the train that reminded me.

On topic: hopefully HLJ will ship the following soon:
Wave 1/144 LED mirage ver 3, ver Sarion, Engage MK3, 2x flamer units (which promptly disappeared from the site, I think it was quite a find, assuming they actually have them in stock)
Flying colors (cool book!)

can never have too many, and you should know bout these markers having the chance of carking it. plus they were cheap so i couldnt refuse

as for the spare unicorn gatling, if you want it be aware its from HM and not the bandai one. however the mold is great for me after having built one of them

the RX-79(GX) is 1/100 while the Gunner Zaku Warrior is a 1/144. saw a few RG mechs before and they look real good the only problem is that they 1/144 like the HG. Somehow I like the bigger size Gunpla and smaller scale Trains.

Just getting back into some modelling (only ever dabbled) so picked up a few supplies.

I thought I'd try out the 3M Primer Surfacer due to the cost savings on regular spray primers.  Super Cheap Auto currently have them on special at 2 for $15 and with the cans being so big I think that's a bargain.  Also grabbed various cements from my local hobby store.

Post by: Sonar on May 15, 2011, 10:05:39 AM
GoZ & Mokana use this stuff religiously. GoZ uses the spray cans specifically and Mokana I believe uses the tinned stuff through his AB. Both have commented that it has great self levelling qualities, applies similar to Tamiya primer, and is ideal for gunpla.

Read all about it in this thread (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php?topic=176.msg17895#msg17895).

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Yami on May 22, 2011, 04:16:24 PM
Honestly i have to say Kurogane no Linebarrel is the worst lineup that i have encountered from Kotobukiya if you do a straight build since the kit needs a lots of paint to look good and articulation is more terrible compared to average Koto kits. The kit size are more or less the same with average 1/144 Gundam.

Even though the kits are terrible i really like some of the design especially Vardant

Oh dear, HLJ order came with a box bigger than I expected. Turned out, the two sets of flame system that I bought for LED Mirage, is for 1/100 scale, the box is about as big as a full 1/144 kit (mmm I somehow missed 1/100 in the picture, the 900 yen price didn't help my assumptions! No wonder it was automatic EMS shipping)...Where can I find space for them now?

Crown of the purchase though is Flying Colours 2, aircraft illustrations by Shigeo Koike, just beautiful prints.....:)

ah..most of the height is fake - the two buster launchers. shoulder height about 50 or so cm.
It's the workshop cast 'recast' version of 1/100 jagd mirage green left twin tower, branded by g-systems.
I expect most of the problem will be stability / weight distribution etc - probably going to a bit of an engineering lesson for me.
setting: (somewhat...half correct)

There's the gre
Wow i bet the Green Dragon must cost at least 200000 yen with that kind of size.

Two jadgs, each assigned to one FEMC wing - the left (green) wing, bunch of lawless crazies only selected by ability and the right (orange) wing, the elite of the AKD admin/political hierarchy.

Green left is nicknamed demon, maybe due to the head shape? Has detachable buster launchers and first appeared with out them when attempting automospheric re-entry without aid. Orange right is nicknamed dragon, has permanently fixed buster launchers & different armour including head shape etc.

The kit is the full equip (dual buster launcher) version. I think someone attempted a conversion to the orange right, but there are not as much reference material compared to green left. The original kit by WSC (remember G-system is a recast with some changes, despite what they claim as IP) was priced at around 230,000 yen (but also apparently still barely broke even) It was the result of a grudge match of sorts between WSC and Volks, with both kits unveiled at the same wonder festival.

Ever thought of joining them together to make one large cabinet. Someone on macrossworld did that with 3 or 4 and it turned out great. They were able to put larger items in and it looked a lot better without the gap you get when you butt 2 up against each other.

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: thegunny on June 24, 2011, 06:21:20 PM
If I told you that there'd be none left for me  ;)

I have a few contacts who do regular trolls of Akiba and I have a friend in HK who keeps an eye out. He also has a friend who does regular trips to Japan and is quite happy to nerd it up if you grease his palm.

Apart from that, Mandarake is useful but I NEVER use anyone who "offers" their services for a price or some of the web based bloggers who also sell limited release stuff as you will most times pay through the nose. Perfect example is the ANA RX-78. I ended up paying around $50 for it. I've seen it on a bloggers site for well over $100  :o

Now that I've pretty much cleaned up on the next to impossible to get Macross resin goodies I'm starting to concentrate on the Gundam goodies. Trouble is there's so much more Gundam stuff it's never ending  :-\

First loot from HLJ arrived this morning. Due to some timing issue, I will have two more coming seperately sometime next week. Anyway, today, I've received 4 S.I.C Kamen Rider cause they are cheap (they are Kiwami but some are 80% off). Next week I will receive my Dual Model Optimus prime, Bumblebee and a Mega Size Gundam + Shen Long with some putty and pla plates.

Jealous! I must make time to check out GaiGun's Series of Epyon Posts (http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/category/work-in-progress/master-grade/epyon/) over the weekend.. He made reference to wanting to buy it and build it again, which is a sterling endorsement in my books.

I am quite surprised that AusPost delivered this to me today. Well, apparently, they have too much packages to deliver, and trust me, there are a few HLJ boxes in his van. Anyway, both of them went through quarantine, hence the delay. Good thing it is here now. The gundam boxes are just for size comparison. I will try to update the non-gundam R&D with these two later. Time to open them with glee :D

Only HLJ has them?? I am afraid to buy from them again since they still owe me $35 for a out of stock magazine 2 years ago.
I haven't check with the US retailers yet if they sell those transformers, are they hard to build??
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: zenma5ter on July 03, 2011, 01:32:10 PM
@Shifty: Definitely Bee first, Prime is a tad too expensive and not to mention discontinued (from HLJ) for me to try and get a feel of the plastic and nubs. Feel like starting it now TBH. I should right?

@GacktC: Well, Prime is discontinued from HLJ, so I guess you have to look elsewhere. Since you are from US, may I suggest our good friend G.G (http://gginfinite.com/home.php), he might still have them in stock. From the instruction manual, you basically have a pre-built frame and you just build up from there. All armor are painted so, I think it's pretty easy. About your issue with HLJ, you should ask them about it, they are a pretty cool bunch :D.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: GacktC on July 03, 2011, 02:36:28 PM
Man! almost $140 from the GG, I think its a bit too much.
I am just too lazy to contact with HLJ about my issue, plus its already 2 years ago, I don't think they can trace it back.

Personally, I would of gotten some 200-500 yen HG kits to practice on, not a MG... I'll be practicing on my HG 1/100 Burning/God Gundam, and maybe some HG Zakus & GMs that I'll buy for practice.

I'm not saying don't buy great models for cheap prices... I'm saying you should practice your airbrushing on kits you don't mind destroying. (Sometimes, beginners can accidentally melt the kit they're working on.) Build up your skill so your MG receives the skill level it deserves.

That's my view at least...

Recent purchases!

1x MG Epyon!

1x HG Astraea (that's a lot of a's in one short word)
1x HG 00 Seven Sword/G
1x HG 00 Raiser
1x HG GN-X II
1x HGFC God Gundaaaaaamu

and a ton of Tamiya masking tape, and a bunch of Kotobukiya weapon kits / detail parts. Gatlings out of stock though. :(

Please HLJ, no more sales.

In the old days, I practiced on those cheap HK made vinyl/PVC recast of Ultraman & Dragonball Z figures because they only have 4-5 colors the most, and cheaper than many Bandai kits. They were easy to put together, just wash em' heat them up by a blowdryer & cut out the parts, then super glue.
I still have this practice piece back in the days I bought from a comic shop as a clearence item :)

HLJ DOES have the best prices I can find, and when the more expensive kits go on sale, there's no place better. However, for me (in the states) the shipping kills the savings. Because of the shipping, I've found that it's cheaper to get most smaller kits at stores here in America like GG Infinite.

All those modifiers are there because even with the $80-$110 shipping, PGSF is still cheaper at HLJ when it's on sale for 40% off, than ANY other site I've found. But cheaper kits, like Epyon, are a different matter. Although the base price for Epyon is cheaper at HLJ, the shipping is more expensive than the shipping+markup from GG.

At least, that's how it is for me.

I've ordered quite a bit from GSAM here in the States (they do not ship anywhere else, possibly CA though, not sure.) and the prices are about as low as you can find, however...their customer service is severely lacking...I've been sent the wrong things before and I have also been frustrated trying to get in contact with them. My recommendation for the USA is G.G. Infinite and HLJ for everything else. G.G. will have better shipping, however HLJ will have a massive amount of more to shop for but shipping is an absolute killer.

And yes, I look at GSAM. The only reason I would shop there is if they were the only ones to carry what I want for a reasonable price. Otherwise, I'll use GGI, Robot4Less, or HLJ, in that order, depending on price & availability.

Guys, this topic is for the showboating of new stuff you have bought, gloating about what has recently arrived on your doorstep, and giddy anticipation about items that are somewhere on or over the Sea of Japan right now.

All other irrelevant posts from recent pages have been removed. Please stay on topic. For discussions about GAF's stance on bootlegs, why HLJ is great, and other unrelated banter, please feel welcome to begin a new topic in the relevant area.

Nice haul Tristan. Loving those 1/144's.

Go nuts for your birthday dude. I'm keen for a zaku extravaganza! ;D

Post by: tristan on July 10, 2011, 07:44:26 AM
After posting that, I went back to HLJ to 'have a look at what i wanted' and noticed all were July/August restocks or on backorder (which is a 4-6 week wait) so I thought "If I order now,they will be here for September" (sort of).

So...now on order/added to last order:
BAN01303        Zaku II High Mobility Type
BAN01304        Zaku Cannon                   
BAN01310        Zaku II Desert Type         
BAN01313        Zaku II Marine Type         
BAN01322        Zaku Tank                     
BAN01323        Zaku II Reconnaissance Type   
BAN01340        Zaku II (Johnny Ridden)     
BAN01341        Zaku Flipper               
BAN01342        Zaku II Mine Layer           
BAN01348        Z-Type Zaku                   
BAN04494        Zaku Recon Type (Z Gundam)
BAN06818        Desert Zaku                   
BAN06829        Zaku Mariner                 
BAN27310        Zaku-Kai (MS-06FZ)

BAN943417       HGUC MS-05B Zaku I     
BAN945382       HGUC Zaku I Black Trinity 
BAN946732       HGUC Zaku I Sniper Type   

Yes, I loves me the older kits!

Given Im (theoretically) not allowed to buy any more gundam after October through 2012 due to the birth of our third child, I feel entitled to stock up now! :)

I am so in trouble when these boxes turn up.....I can sense a large present having to be bought!
:P

All 1/144's....I went for bang for my buck!!

Ill start bigtime on the MG range when I feel more confident with my painting skills. I believe that if you are going to pay good money, you should do a good job on them!! Plus I love the 1/144's for some reason....

I think you'll find those older 1/144 kits harder to build than a modern MG  ;)

I have a number of older kits (they were the ones I started with thanks to a lack of  and money knowledge about the models etc when I was in Japan in 09) and they can be a bit frustrating given they are 'build as you go' (unless you paint on the sprue which I find is a nightmare) as they have no polycaps but I like the challenge of trying to work out stuff as you go re painting, seam lines etc.
Ive also bought some rare earth magnets (thanks to Alan's influence) and Ive started using them to make life a little easier (at least of the arm joints).

If anyone beats Hemish to 20 MG Zaku's painted and decalled to the same standard as his 7 completed ones are I will personally buy you something cool from one of the limited item shops in Den Den town on one of my visits. Good luck though... haha.

Only if they are paying Macca's rates!! Im not sure what the postage will be but the combined price is around that of a semi to decent PG from an Aussie dealer. Even with my guesstimated postage, Im still ahead I reckon at about $6-$8 per model (no more than $10 at a conservative guess!)


Naw...I just want a thegunny/mokana_man style backlog!!

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on July 12, 2011, 12:50:14 PM
@ Fury - about $70 for 20 models...... HLJ pushed it from SAL to EMS due to size/numbers of boxes! Upside:- here quicker, downside:- a bit more expensive than I guesstimated!
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: fury-s12 on July 12, 2011, 12:59:14 PM
ah ok thats not too bad actually i was thinking 70 for sal and way more for EMS im surprised how cheap HLJ's postage is more then makes up for the fact they cant tell you how much till you've order IMO anyway
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on July 12, 2011, 08:00:01 PM
Yeah, I am constantly surprised about their costs. My last order had a few few things in it and the box was pretty big (see below with my 5 year old as a reference) but it was only $65 EMS! Im guessing this box (or boxes) will be bigger again!

It was from a Japanese seller via Ebay (he put it in a plastic bag and I didnt take it off for the initial "Quick, I must get this onto GAF ASAP"!).
Funny thing was, the box it came in was the original ANA delivery box etc etc so it feels like I ordered it myself off the plane (kind of, sort of if I think about it really hard!!)

I just got in an order of glow paint pigments, & it seems I may have an interesting situation. The blue, green & yellow glow green, while the orange, pink & peach all glow yellow. I also got a black light torch, so I can test it right away.

It's gonna be interesting playing around with the stuff to see what works & how to get what I want it to do. I plan to have a Gundam glow in certain locations, especially making the eyes glow red, but without LEDs, it's a HG...

I have an unfinished Johnny Ridden Zaku 2.0 that I thought was pretty fantastic. As far as I know all of the 2.0 spec Zakus are great. Just pick the style with the legs you like the most!

Speaking of Zakus, I just bought both clear sets for my PG kit. I built her years ago an did a horrible job. I've been wanting to do a clear kit, where I painted all of the internals, and frosted the clear bits. Instead of buying another PG Strike I can re-purpose this guy.

Nice little sale on our lovely sponsors site, took the opportunity to get a few cheap kits for practice with the airbrush i recently bought. Also couple of others im really keen to put together such as the mega size BB 16cm! madness.

Actually the first ime ive bought gunpla on the net (good hobbyco in Campbelltown). With the disounts and the multiple kits in a single box i think it was still cheaper.

Here's a list of what I ordered.

1/144 Double Zeta Gundam 390Y
1/144 Gouf 210Y
1/144 Zock 390Y
1/144 Nu Gundam 700Y
1/144 Zaku Warrior 225Y
RG 1/144 Zaku II Char Aznable Custom Model 1500Y
SD Wing Gundam 480Y
SD God Gundam & Wing Gundam Zero Custom 630Y
BB Shin Gouka Ryuusou Ryuubi Gundam 1700Y
MG Launcher/Sword Strike Gundam 4000Y

@ Fury. Gotta love a good hg build. Ive been keen to buy a big one since building the SD full weapon ver its a cool MS and i dig the series too

Speakin of ruining red frames a mate bought a PG one off shelf for like $300 put it together that day slapped stickers on it and claimed it done, nubs all hangin out. I nearly cried.
Everyones gotta want a red frame sexiest legs in Gunpla town.

I haven't gotten a SD kit in a while and the last big SD kit I build was that one that transformed into an MG size and styled kit and that was realised about 16 years ago or so.

I want to get some SD kits but they are never on the fore of my mind when am ordering in all honesty.

Post by: Dakaramor on August 03, 2011, 02:46:42 PM
That would be cool if they could do an Amazon style "ship this all at once if you can." I know when I was going to pre-ordered Emerald Knights and bought a few other items some months back and I chose that option, the ship date wasn't until Emerald Knights was going to be released.

All Zakus and one Tallgeese?
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: tristan on August 03, 2011, 07:46:54 PM
My original order had over 20 Zakus in it with some other oddities thrown in as I liked their designs. The order was so large (35 models?) that it has been split into what is now 3 separate orders due to availability. If you go back to page 49, you can see the complete list..... but yes, the tallgeese does look weird in that order (I got both the clear version and the 'actual' version to pose side by side)
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Dakaramor on August 04, 2011, 11:16:37 AM
That is a lot of Zaku! I think I'll end up getting a standard MG Zaku II, I like the classic look of it. I'll probably do one of the Ecopla ones in the next few months first though.

I got the last of my recent round of stuff in today :)

RX-78-5, some action bases, a BSG (new series) Viper Mk II and a gift from the local Hobby shop manager ( I gave him an old laptop for his son to play with) in a magazine exclusive GN Sword IV Full Saber. Totally an excuse to get myself an HG Quan[T] ^^
(http://i561.photobucket.com/albums/ss51/skyshatter_warrior/photo3.jpg?t=1312420068)

But there is one more thing... in that ginormous amazon box its all sitting on....

Walked past hobbyco a week back and decided to take a peek at what was in. All I was intending to do was pick up some normal GMs ($13.95)... walked out with a heck of a lot more:
(http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j116/randmness/Recent%20purchases/P14-08-11_1409.jpg)

In case you can't see, it is:
2x HG GM grunt
1x HG GM Quel (The other one is form TooDifficult. Cheers dude! Nice to meet another mechatronics mate :D)
1x HG Qubeley
1x HG Qubeley Mk-II
1x SD Zeong
1x SD gundam of sorts
1x Eva 04

Then I went back today to scout out a bit more.. Bad idea? Came back again with more than I expected

(http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j116/randmness/Recent%20purchases/P14-08-11_1408.jpg)

2x MG RX 78-3
1X MG Limited RX 178 Mk-II Titans
1x MG Acguy

All up for two trips? $250. Pretty much HLJ pricing minus shipping!
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases

Is that the QVB Hobbyco? And are those sale tags on them?
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases

I was wondering the same thing.....mmmmmmmmmmmmmm....sales!


Nice Hauls!!!
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: randmness on August 14, 2011, 09:49:44 PM
Rhodes Hobbyco, and yes, they all had sale tags on them (the ones I bought)

The same guy served me both times and he grinned as he looked at everything (which was on sale). Basically cleaned the place out of sale items re: gunpla. From memory I think there was a MG full armour for $50 and a PG 30th anniversary zaku left $200 odd. Probably a few other MG kits and HGUC kits, but pretty much bought out everything of relative interest to me.

Then my sister got this... crap reso but meh

Some are from that order, some are from me being weak and buying a couple of kits from TooDifficult.....and yes, there are more still to come (7 on route atm, 2 ready to ship and 4 still on backorder which includes the new Zaku sniper which Im so desperate to build).
Im also waiting for an order confirmation from Hobbysearch (a Hygogg, Zugock and 2 kamfers.....).


I am so weak but I have til October to curb my urges!!! (But then there is the Hobby Link Fukubukuro in December and I may as well get some other things to justify the shipping.........)

@ Sonar-The Jager is very nice.....just have to do the hands, weapons and then decal!

1x Sinanju Head Display Base (comes with the Gundam Ace mag, so yay! I'll get a Sinanju for it later)
2x Mechanical Chain Base 001 (I wanted to get an 009, but it was discontinued on Friday :( so I ordered 2 of these instead)
1x Mechanical Chain Base 004
1x Mechanical Chain Base 005
1x Mechanical Chain Base 007
1x Mechanical Chain Base 010

Some of these have already shipped and will be here in 2 days. Still waiting for a confirm from HobbySearch, and a final price notice from HLJ.

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Kjasi on August 17, 2011, 03:12:54 PM
I'm still growing my skills and my toolset. A lot of this is basic supplies that I'm needing. Plus I've got 9 kits in that order. Granted, 6 of them are the chain bases, and I'm not even counting the Action base as a kit, but that's still a lot to do! Not to mention I've still got 2-3 kits my previous backlog, and 4 kits that I'm actively working on.

But yeah, next time, more kits. Or... I'm thinking of getting either a PG or 2-3 MGs... I like HGs, but they're a bit too small for my hands. If I go with the MGs, it'll be Unicorn (HD+cage) and Sinanju. PG would be Strike and the Skygrasper.

But at the same time, I'm looking that I need a good Zaku. MG, PG or RG. Not sure yet...
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: fury-s12 on August 17, 2011, 03:19:05 PM
I didn't think about the fact the bases would require work to get together so I suppose they count as kits lol
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Xenomorph on August 17, 2011, 03:20:59 PM
I have both sinanju and the HD+Cage version on the unicorn and its worth getting for the cage alone  :P and well...they are both awesome kits
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Kjasi on August 18, 2011, 06:04:12 AM
Hmm... It's looking like I might have some extra monies... Might get a Zaku or the MG Unicorn if I do. But I'm still waiting for HobbySearch and HLJ to send me their bills, so I won't make that decision until they both charge me.

Part 1 of my latest Purchase. Waiting for the Mech Chain Bases and the tools.

I said earlier that the action base 3 doesn't count as a kit... I was wrong. It's a kit.

Oddly, I didn't find any instructions with my Sinanju head. Did anyone else get instructions? If not, anyone know where I can find some? Or am I just going to have to figure it out on my own?

Also kinda disappopinted with the MG GM 1.0. Not much of an internal frame. Makes it more of a Super HG kit, instead of a MG kit. But with a few alterations, it might fit a OYW Gundam's frame...

Ordered Monday delivered today!
How good is that!!
Oh and the pricing was cheap
.5mm 10m pack was only $3
1mm  10m pack only $4.50
2mm  5m pack only $7

Really cheap considering what some hobby shops charge for the wire too

Stupid thing is that I was emailed by HLJ to let me know the last 8 from my mega order was shipped 10 days before the above two were shipped but much later order arrived first! Hopefully within the next couple of days so I can call the big order (minus my sniper...just arrived in stock) over!!

I will admit, along with the 'unusualness' of the model, the box art is what seals the deal for me (hence my love affair with zaku style suits and older kits)

Even though the RG's don't really do anything for me I couldn't resist the Zaku @ 1500Y

You are the master of finding rare bargains...the ones I was looking at during the easter holidays were around AU$100 which is why I was stoked to find the 1:1 construction set for $22 in July!

haha you ordered decals for kits you dont have ? are they on the way at least lol

i just brought an SD strike freedom, coz even though im yet to finish panel and painting the red frame, hg freedom and the BB trio i fell like snapping together something
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Kjasi on September 08, 2011, 01:30:16 PM
Well, the decals are getting MUCH harder to find now-a-days, especially for some of the kits I want, (NO one is selling MG Sinanju decals anymore!) plus at ~$6 USD, I can afford to get a few right now, rather than wait for my next big paycheck.

The kits are waiting for said paycheck. I'm gonna get the MG HD Unicorn, a Sinanju (either HG or MG, haven't decided yet. Leaning towards HG since I have the head stand now...) and a Zaku of some kind, but that's probably all I'm going to get for the foreseeable future. So, I wanted to make sure I had the decals for them.

My GF is a sword lover rather than a Gundam lover, so I'm going to try and find her a really nice kit with big swords to give her for Xmas... Any suggestions? Right now it's looking like either the Shin Musha MkII or the customized Red Frame, since they have double-swords.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: fury-s12 on September 08, 2011, 01:49:36 PM
ah good point i forget sometimes there are actual bandai decals :P

as for the sword based kit, the red frame is a great build and awesome looking withe double swords, i havent built the musha to comment there, but i rekon the special sengoku version with the backdrop and stands that sets it up like an old samurai armour and weapon rack would be right what your looking for
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Kjasi on September 09, 2011, 11:29:32 AM
Sorry, I mean Musha Mk-2, not Shin Musha. Shin Musha's the one I'll be getting. (Thinking we could work on them together... At least I hope so.) And as much as the awesome samurai background is appealing, I'm a bit concerned about price. That IS a nice comparison link though...

My choices for her are Musha Mk-2 (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN963119) or Red Frame (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN962047). Third possibility is the MG Sandrock... She at least KNOWS about (and even LIKES) that suit, but only because of the swords.

I thought about the 7 Sword 00, but again, she's not a big Gundam fan. The Musha or Red-Frame might be a good gate-way kit to get her interested in the hobby.

There are 6 RX-78-2 HG 30th kits. They are the Tokyo 1/1 site, the Shizuoka 1/1 site, the ANA, the Gundam Expo 2010, the 7 Eleven & the Premium Gold. All up they cost me $300.75. The cheapest was $27 and most expensive was $77. There is a clear one floating around but I'm not sure if that's just an C3 show special or a G30th as well.

Now on to something different. I know where I can get almost a full set of the MG camo RX-79[G]s that came out a while ago but they are damn expensive or maybe a set of Igloo Zeon MG kits or some more Pro Shop kits. Argh more baked beans for tea  :-\

Sorry missed one out, the one that started it all the standard G30th anniversary RX-78-2 HGUC kit. This one wasn't a special as you can pick it up anywhere but it is the basis of all the other kits.

Happy birthday Tristan! Very nice gifts. You know what this means, though?

For your wife's next birthday you're going to have to buy her something amazing. A small island, or Bali, or something. Otherwise you'll never live this down.

I don't think i will build these kits anytime soon as i got few backlogs to handle for now and i got my MG Delta Plus already.

I think the half-price EMS should offset our dollar being worth a measly 74yen, gunny.

I'm about to get the following shipped to me:
MG OO Gundam Seven Sword/G
HIQ NC Decal 05 - one set in gray and one set in red
F-15 Eagle Eggplane (for lolz)
NSG-12a Kobold and NSG-25r Schtrous (Framearms)
Combat-San
3x Koto Weapon Hand Gun Kits
and an Argent Meister/Jazz Mazda RX-8 Binaltech which I'm hoping to combine with one of the two Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition's I'm getting to make a Merc TF for the missus. She did say I could get the 1/35 EX-S if I got her a gold Mercedes... ;)

As much as i like some GM variants Bandai simply won't make any MG for them especially from MSV as they think it will be profitable enough.

I would like to see MG version of GM Striker, Aqua if Bandai ever plan to make one and Desert type is fine too.

Post by: fury-s12 on September 30, 2011, 09:58:08 AM
money talk unfortunately and MGs dont make enough as it is (hence the drop in production) so the likelihood of MG GMs isnt high...until MG technology becomes so cheap they can produce them at HG cost

Earlier in the week, the $2 surface shipping from luckymodel yields a whole bunch of box-too-big-to-fly or random stuff such as polishing cloth, cements, tapes, mr. bottle opener (thx for this thread that I'm enlightened to such space age tools), and...an A380 and a C-5 Galaxy!

Then browsing HLJ, ended-up ordering 2 old Saint Seiya gold cloth models (not myth cloth, the assembly kits, a childhood grail of sorts?!), some 00 suit I have no idea of but looks kinda nice as a not-gundam, the RG Zaku II and the HGUC Eye-Zac - Wanted the 1/144 psycommu Zakus but then realised the Eye-Zac actually looks more like the psycommu Zaku than it have a right to! Now here's hoping the shipping doesn't kill my wallet.

hmm lets see, within the 2 weeks, purchased a number of alclad paints, as well as a gravity feed brush for such paints since the suction feed would be a disaster in terms of paint consumption ( should have kept my previous gravity feed one. shows how noob i was when i started with airbrushing -.-)

as with kits, got myself a delta plus MG as well as picking up the shenlong ( alan calls it shlong) gundam MG and an SD wing ka gundam just for kicks at arma on saturday. and there goes my increasing backlog to 14 kits counting that muv luv kit i bought some time ago from animasia

I didn't expect myself to get Composite ver Ka Exbein since i am not really a big fan of the design but bought it in the end due to almost 50% off. I really wanted to build Soulgain and Rockman Zero but due to the piles of backlog i have, i don't think i am able to build them this year :( .

Excellent pull! I'm glad to see you got a PG Mark II as well. I still need to crack into my PG AEUG MK. II myself, let me know when you start it, I will try to build it a long with you.

As far as I go, I just got back from Detroit, MI for Youmacon and I pulled a small haul. I've discovered the S.C.M.EX line of Gundam figures. I picked up the Prototype RX-78-1 from that and the MG Full Armor Gundam, the girlfriend also picked up a figurine of Kihel Heim from Turn A Gundam.

Yeah I've had mine for quite a while, it's like one of those holy items, I don't want to even think about touching it until i'm inspired to do something great with it. I will probably crack into this Full Armor soon though.

I am overseas on business and walked into the local 7-eleven.  Sitting on the shelf were entry grade kits.  Bought one each of the two types they had (Gundam Exia and Strike Gundam).  Not spectacularly difficult, but keep me out of trouble of an evening and feed my newfound Gundam addiction.

Anyway, just got this
(http://i1023.photobucket.com/albums/af358/masterquang/IMGP0194.jpg)

Its for the GB EX2 Build. SUch an old kit. Comes molded in a neutral blue colour and needs glue. ALong with 2 shades of brown for dry brushing/weathering.

Interesting choice of weathering components for an underwater unit.

You don't believe in doing things easy, do you? Making a Fisheye from an MG Ball was going to be hard enough but to use a ye olde 1/144 kit is going to be a hell of a lot harder.

I have that kit too. Pity it doesn't have the gatling the player type comes with, but the bazooka is cool enough. I should see if it'll hold a Koto gatling.

I'm hoping they make some of the bad guy mechs (and the Assault Suit Valken too).

We could do a build off and you could kick my arse! :D

Just found out that iron kong of yours gunny is part of the first and only re run of that kit in 2 years which is now sold at (at hlj at least who cant order more coz koto is out) must be an expensive kit to produce,and another rarity for your collection
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: thegunny on December 02, 2011, 05:17:32 PM
You got the expensive part right  ::)  :-\

I believe the kit was re-released to coincide with the Japan Hobby show that was held just recently and there is no intention of doing it again although if Koto are anything like Bandai who take great pleasure in shafting collectors I'd say it will surface again in the not too distant future.

I know I said no more 'til Christmas (ha!!) and that I wasnt going to buy anything from HLJ's Black Friday Sale but the treasurer said I could splurge (she's up to something) so I had a look on the Saturday and whilst there wasnt much to be had, I picked up these!!

ouch... don't play too much skyrim.... on ps3 it becomes near unplayable after about 30 hours. And Bethesda is not really in a hurry to make a patch sooo.... wait a few months before playing if you want to enjoy it to it's fullest

I got myself a Ducky 9008 Shining on the weekend, with the Cherry Blue switches. Nothing like a really clicky mechanical keyboard. You might find I'll be posting more often 'cause it's much more fun to type now than on my old ishty keyboard!

Hopefully it will see the light of day sometime next year. I'm going to go big next year, 1/400 Musai & White Base, PG Strike, 1/60 Gouf, Mega Zaku J, and Iron Kong. I'll be living in the shed as I won't have any room inside once these are all finished  ::)

Sonar's post about the $900 group order made me check my spending for the last month and a half. Oh dear  :-\ I'll need to eat more than baked beans for a while as it came to $1359.95  :o Bloody cheap postage! :bacdafucup:

Is it sad that I have been checking the forums every hour for updates on the massive Brizzy order?  I don't know what I expect to find but I am just so hyped.  Even had trouble sleeping last night.  I hope this gets better as I get older in the hobby cause this could make life very hard. ;)

I have an order confirmation but no shipping notice as yet. I will email everybody's invoices when I get confirmation of the shipping amount. It's a huge order! Definitely was exciting to click place order on that one.

Post by: Epimethius on December 14, 2011, 07:04:43 PM
I would expect it would take a day or 2 to pack and check the order I guess.  My part is a fifth of he order roughly and it has a ton of stuff in it, so I can imagine the massive number of items to go into a box.

Working, as I do, in a metal fabrication environment I am going to go for... not me.  Even though there is an unwritten rule in our workplace that I am not to get within 5 meters or any sort of machine bigger than a laptop they still wory I would get a tie caught in a plate roll.  Since I am a terrible conversationalist I didn't find out what everyone else did.  I know what Hemish does, and I know what Hoardz does.  Not sure what Sonar or Xeno do specifically.  Could be Hemish, Could be Sonar, Could be Xeno.

I asked him again, no response yet.

Making this worse: Seller is one of my Highschool friends in the Philippines. He's already received the money.

Put in the paypal dispute at 30-35 days as it will be over the estimated time but under the 45 day limit. Amazing what response you get from the seller when you do that!! :)

Post by: Vector Prime on December 20, 2011, 10:42:22 PM
So I just had a stickybeak at HLJ and noticed that they've restocked on a lot of stuff, so I couldn't resist and just ordered the following:

1/100 MG PMX-003 THE-O (to take advantage of the all you can ship campaign  ;))
1/100 MG MSM-07 Z'Gok Production
1/100 MG MS-07B Gouf Ver.2.0
1/100 MG MS-06S Char's Zaku II Ver. 2.0
1/100 MG MS-06J Zaku II Ver. 2.0  (x2)
1/100 MG MS-06R-1A Zaku II Black Trinity Ver. 2.0 (x3)

Yes, I think Hemish has a new rival in terms of Zaku love!  :P

I am concerned though, since when I placed the order, everything was shown as in stock, however quite a few of the items have now changed to back ordered.  :o

The trick with their flaky ordering system is to go to your account as soon as you get the order acknowledged email and tell them to ship everything they can. If you let it go as they tell you to then stuff will go from in stock to back order before they get around to processing it.

Yes, much newly discovered love for v2.0 Zaku - have built one & fallen in love with the kit. Matsunaga and Ridden are in the pile to be built next, followed by the ones I've just ordered. :P

The trick with their flaky ordering system is to go to your account as soon as you get the order acknowledged email and tell them to ship everything they can. If you let it go as they tell you to then stuff will go from in stock to back order before they get around to processing it.

Really? Oh crap... I'm doing it now, hopefully it's not too late since it shows the items on my order page as Low Stock, but when you click the item and go to the product page, it shows Backordered.

The ones that are affected on my order are the three 1/100 MG MS-06R-1A Zaku II Black Trinity Ver. 2.0 and the 1/100 MG MS-07B Gouf Ver.2.0.

The Gouf I can live without, but the Black Tri-Stars are a definite no-no.

I'll probably end up canceling the order if they can't supply me the 3 Black Tri-Stars - only bought THE-O since I wanted to save on the shipping for the three of them (along with the others) but don't have any real desire to build that massive, ugly looking beast. :(

I wonder what the implications are for canceling the order and/or just holding back making payment to them?
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: thegunny on December 20, 2011, 11:31:07 PM
You wont find out if they can't supply the low stock items until they hit you up for payment then it's too late to cancel. You can probably get out of it once by telling them a hard luck story but don't not just pay or you'll end up on the sh!t list and won't be able to place any more orders.

You can cancel any time up until they request payment and they are fine with that.

When you tell them to ship what they can they are now sending out an email asking for patience while they process your order. Geez Sonar did you rip them a new a-hole when politely asking them what the hold up was  :o  The email also seems to confirm that processing priority is given in order of shipping request not when the order was placed.

Is your Matsunaga a original or Ver 2? Those heads will only work with Ver 1 kits but if you're dead then I suppose it doesn't matter  :o

The trick with their flaky ordering system is to go to your account as soon as you get the order acknowledged email and tell them to ship everything they can. If you let it go as they tell you to then stuff will go from in stock to back order before they get around to processing it.

Wish I knew that 6 days ago..

The email also seems to confirm that processing priority is given in order of shipping request not when the order was placed.

That is outrageous.

I was pretty polite in my initial email, a bit more forward in the one I sent last night. I would definitely like to see an improvement to the system in terms of notifying customers of OOS items in a timely manner (or at all!). It seems it is left to the customer to monitor their order for out of stock items and no notification is offered.

I have cancelled the offending Zoids kit from the order and requested shipping of the rest. We'll see what happens from here. I don't imagine they'll be in a hurry to do me any favours though.

Well, just heard back from HLJ, they've managed to fulfill everything on my original order, bar one MG Zaku Black Tri-star, so looks like I'll be proceeding with it (and won't be getting sh!t listed :P)

Post by: fury-s12 on December 21, 2011, 11:18:10 AM
I can see the logic of holding and counting stock based off shipping ready over simply ordered but it does have this large downside obviously, its definitely a business based option rather then customer but a needed one unfortunately otherwise stock would constantly be held by non payers :(

HLJ can be a pain to work with, but yeah that's the way their system works. First in, best dressed for shipping requests, NOT order that things were ordered in. It's a pity they wont allow customers to pay for stock when they order it, and do short term stock holds for customers. Amiami, for example, will let you order a bunch of stuff that's due for release in the same month and they'll hold it all for you and ship it as one package. Even better would be the 'Pile of Loot' thing BBTS does. It'd also be nice if they offered the traceble Parcel Post version of SAL as a middle ground between EMS and normal SAL...

Atleast HLJ have finally automated the 'get the order into the system' part, so you can order in-stock/low-stock stuff and 1 minute later go in and tell it to ship it.  Maybe they'll realise one day that online automated real-time stock control systems are fairly easy to use these days. Maybe I should try to sell them the one we've developed at work ;)

Anyway enough whining. Recent purchases:

Pretty much all the Fansproject Causality figures.

That I place an order for in stock items, and items become out of stock between that time and the time the order is processed I could understand, IF priority was given to the order for the same item that was placed before mine.

The fact that I have to monitor my order status and request shipping straight away to be given priority for the items I've ordered and given my credit card details for is disappointing.

Had I been notified straight away that something had run out of stock and asked at that point how I wished to proceed that would be acceptable. I find it distasteful that the onus is put on the customer to monitor that. That is your duty of care to your customer.

It is the communication that is lacking. HLJ provide a fantastic service and they are always pleasant and professional to deal with. I hope they find a way to deal with the lack of communication in this circumstance more effectively. :)

Always amazed at:
A) How quickly these things come out via EMS
B) How slow Auspost is (3 days from Japan, 2.5 days from Sydney to Blue Mountains (~2 hours) )
C) How much of a hammering HLJ takes on these sales as I "saved" ~$80 on postage (that or their markup is quite significant!!)

Picked up:

1/100 MG Master Gundam
1/100 MG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II Titans Prototype Ltd

(there was nothing else I really wanted - did play with the idea of another couple of MG Zaku's but I think 8 or so is enough, for the time being)

Depends on what you like... they've got lots of HG's in stock but not a lot of MG's (which are my preference).

I'd probably suggest that you compile a list of what you want, look up the items on Hobbyco's website and call ahead to check (quoting their internal product code found on their website) - the guy's there are Gunpla fans so they will be happy to hold the items for you until you get in. :)

I swear, thats it for a while (other than some stuff that is in transit.......:) ).

I was actually looking for some army figures to go with the various MG's Ive acquired but couldnt find any 1/86 figures and the 1/72's always look too big to me. I was a bit annoyed about that one as the figures were quite cheap!

Still kicking myself about that 1/60 for $80......

Christmas loot came this afternoon. In the box, PG Strike Freedom, HG 1/144 AGE-1 Normal, Titus, Spallow & Genoace, Genoace Custom, G-Exes & Gafran, Baqto, Zedas.

Cracked open and finish the Normal AGE-1 before dinner. Nifty kit that.

Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tristanforsyth/6626823093/) by Tristan Forsyth (http://www.flickr.com/people/tristanforsyth/), on Flickr

Also bought two of his model/upgrade parts combo's but when I received them, they turned out to be non-Bandai products so I wont post pics up....... :(

Also got three Tamiya weathering sticks, Alclad II chrome, all of the Tamiya clear acrylics and some MIG rust/dust powders from Frontline Hobbies. Still waiting for some panel lining fluid and some other MIG washes to come in from them.

Someone I respect a lot suggested I get my hands on some old school diorama/modeling books so Ive ordered from Amazon 5 books on airbrushing, scenery, dioramas etc. They should arrive in the next month!!

Also got some airbrush cleaning brushes and a mini water trap filter to go on my airbrush!

Went to Bunnings today and picked up 4 tubes of acrylic gap filler to make 'goop' for dioramas, a new shelf to spread things out on and some flyscreen to make pretty patterns  and assorted grills and railings with!

Spewing I couldnt get any sawdust flour from them as I want to have a go at making flock. Found a place that sells it at $10 a bag but it would cost $50 to courier it up....may see what the dust is like from my works dust extraction system in the workshops!

The Meteor is a nice kit, it ends up a decent size. It would benefit from additional panel line scribing and some adding of detail with plating or somesuch. It also benefits from being kept in a cat-safe zone, so it doesn't get knocked off and break a booster. Not talking from experience or anything. ;) Could've been worse, one of the beam arm things might've broken.

Not a kit but still Gundam related.  This arrived in the mail today.

I've got the original How to build dioramas book. Worth it's weight in gold. It's written by Sheperd Paine. It probably won't appeal to the You Tube generation but this bloke has forgotten more than most You Tubers will even know  ;)

Tell me where on the forum and l see what I can do. Copyright issues aside, a couple of pics shouldnt be an problem!

As Gunny mentioned, The 'How to build diorama's' book is the bible but the scenery manual and the painting/finishing books are pretty good as well.

I should add these were bought from Amazon, they were US$10-16 each. Postage was a bit (about US$35) but it was still as lot cheaper than buying locally (plus three of the books are classified as imports according to my local bookshop). Took 12 days exactly to come out from the States

Hobbyco in Sydney is having a 50% off sale on over stocked items.

Managed to order the MG THE-O and have it shipped to me for about $97 because of the extra 10% off members get.

Not sure what they have left but Panda said that they had some High Def AUEG Gudams mk II in the sale.

Actually it's from eBay, and I should note that it's from a trusted and top-seller, he also listed BANDAI on the item name, so if the seller really gives me a FAKE one, I can report it to eBay xD

Either way, the effects parts are pretty cool.

As I understand, it's attached with most kits from HK and also some provide coupons that you can exchange for these parts if you bought them earlier, the promotion period is to the end of Jan for the coupons. You can always ask before buying I suppose!

I got my kit recently in HK, and yes there is a coupon for redeeming the special effect parts in the box. The redemption date on mine is 3/2 to 16/2 and is valid for the store you bought it in. I'll report back later when I actually redeem it as I'm here for a little bit.

On a more on topic note, I got one of these albeit shelf-worn for ~$7 :D

Back on topic, received the following pressies:

1/100 MG RX-78-3 G-3 Gundam Ver.2.0
1/100 MG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II Titans (HD Vers)
1/100 MG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II AEUG (HD Vers)

No real interest in building these (maybe just the AEUG one since I already have the Titans one) so probably will stick the others up for sale soon.

Yes looking forward to that Destiny Extreme Burst one - saw it displayed in the shop window at Hobbyco Rhodes and was instantly drawn to the awesomeness of it.

As for buying and selling so many, well I sell them since between the time I buy them and receive them, I lose interest in building them so I'd rather offload them to someone that will appreciate them instead of them just sitting gathering dust in storage.

1/35 is quite a lot of head! :D

@QV - that's quite an old piece of kit you picked up there. Do you collect vintage camera gear?
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: QuangVuong on January 30, 2012, 09:39:07 PM
Not so much collect, but I do have some old stuff around. K1000, 2 Pratickas, along with a whole bunch of old lenses. Parents still have a Minolta Dynax.

That Fuji is gonna be my main camera for the time being since the K100D's flash died. Planning for a 1Ds or a Kodak DCS full frame if Im gonna stick with Nikon.

@ Hemish - oOoOoh curious to see what you do with that Geara Zulu. :P

Now i think about it too whats with all the 1/144 kits all a sudden?
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Shaid on January 30, 2012, 09:58:41 PM
1/144 kits are awesome. My last three builds have been a 1/60 PG, a 1/100 MG, and a 1/144 HG. The HG was by far the "funnest". Don't take me wrong, PGs and MGs are good, and damn impressive looking when all done up, but, for me, they're not as much fun to do.

Coincidently I had that same Geara Zulu kit arrive in the mail today. Also got a Geara Doga and the Loto twin set. Damn sales.

Nice, Hemish. You'll do a review of that for us all, right? I remember seeing a trailer for it a few months back while watching other tutes on Youtube, and wondering how he can hold the brush so steady but so far away from the head.

Also, I see an ominous envelope from ANZ. Deadly credit card statement inbound?

In relation the the RG Freedom effect parts, the kits that come with them are available for a slightly higher price I believe. Or you can buy the effect parts for about $15. It's a little dear just for effect parts, so I reckon it's best to grab a kit that has the effect parts in it already.

Got my Zombster order today, Freedom RG, with the effect parts, (Full Burst pose is actual going to look good with those, and it ain't Freedom Gundam without that pose), first entry into UC (both the timeline and the series) and an Action Base.  Unfortunately I didn't realise RGs only work with AB 2's so that'll be going to my 00 Raiser HG instead lol.

And yes, crap camera is crap, it's just the webcam that came with the laptop as I don't have any other cameras (not changing anytime soon either).

Finally got to drop into my new local hobby shop, again the only place to buy gunpla round here, but it looks to be good, prices seemed fair but I forgot to write some down to actually compare so that will have to wait till next time, but the best thing about it is being in a real size city it has supplies ie paint nd weather kits in high supply at great prices, great range too so im happy will be spending some dollars there soon

I did buy some tamiya panel line accent color, dam that's good stuff revolutionised my panel lining haha

Will write up the store fully in the right section for all the other tassie members (lol) at some point

Wow Bilbytron that's a whopping order mate. Good to hear from you ;)

Nice score Syberio. Supremely jealous of all you MG Heavyarms havers.

Hemish I can't figure out how the One Piece sub fits into that equation. I have to assume it is seperate and for the kids like the zoid was, or you have something devilishly insane in store. Hoping those 1/35 bits are for your MSM Zaku Dio...
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Hemish on February 24, 2012, 01:03:43 PM
The one piece sub was just a whimsy purchase from seeing on hljtv, it could look awesome with a bit of stempunk shenanigans added to it and make it look all rusty and beat up.
The 1/35 stowage is for this
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla897.jpg)
The road block parts are for another of the 1/35 mechs I have :)
I almost picked up another set of the 1/48 road block parts though and if they have them in stock next week I might pick some up

I decided to get the Volks A3 of Shiranui since it has the Blast Guard equipment set that Kotobukiya's Shiranui doesn't have at the moment.

I also get the SRW OG Masoukishin which will be really a fun ride since i just finished OG Gaiden :D

Hlj order: PG Astray Red Frame, MG 00 Seven Swords, MG Destiny; all coming in from HLJ, and my dad got me MG MSA-0011-EXT-EX-S and MG 00 Raiser, a designers knife, few packets of spare knives and around 20 bottles of Tamiya Acrylic/Enamels, all coming in from a container.

Question: is the G-system deep striker worth the price? Or should I get a PG 00 raiser instead?

Post by: thegunny on March 13, 2012, 02:10:22 PM
Nozzles, nozzles and more nozzles plus a few other things like 120mm & 100mm ammo and a black ammo belt for the Z'Gok/Quel dio. All from curtiusm's Metal Mecha Parts Store.

If you want to spend the rest of your life trimming tiny little resin parts it might be. Judging from what I saw of Hamish's Z'Gok conversion when it came in that Deep Striker kit will take a year to clean up.

couldnt resist the saber kit although its 06. could have waited for lily but nah. dont do well with white. hopefully the kit doesnt fall apart like the pest x san i picked up last year. cant wait to get cracking into the age 1. planning to build it out of the box. no painting
the kos-mos fig i couldnt resist and cheaper then the figma version of it. plus it comes with more stuff so love it all :)

Post by: Shaid on March 24, 2012, 06:25:00 PM
Nice haul, Wolfman. The first rule of Koto's "snap-fit" kits is they need glue in a few places. ;)

Did you notice that the MG Age 1 doesn't have any multi-colour runners? There's just a bunch of little ones for the colour bits. I guess it's due to them making one mould for the 3 variants, and some needing more red / blue runners than others.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Wolfman X on March 24, 2012, 08:19:37 PM
yeah i noticed that. kits in the past had 1 runner with at least 1 or 3-4 colours. i actually loke how theres a lot of detailing on this kit especially the leg and arm vent holes ( if you can consider them as such). anyway im building this while watching the game ( although the giants are losing and losing badly for their 1st game. too bad for them) and im enjoying this build so far

and i now know that in regards with koto kits. glue is a requirement for some sections. my last koto kit ive built was the breaker and that thing needed glue for the vital parts.

What is that Vallejo wash stuff like to use? I've been looking for a premixed panel line wash that works well so I don't have to keep wasting the stuff I have left over when I mix my own.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: thegunny on March 26, 2012, 07:05:25 PM
Yep BNA order. They seem to be the only ones with the large varnish bottles. Don't know what the wash is like never used it before but I think it's not like normal panel wash it's more to add depth and shadow over an existing colour.

If you want the real thin stuff you need to get their Game Color inks.

Nah just 1 of 8ish grand. It's only a Glock after all  :) Tupperware (or porcelain according Bruce Willis) is not that expensive.

Don't know why they make it in that colour. They used to be just plain old black. The ultimate fashion accessory for the closet Rambo maybe?

Post by: TheGhostofZeon on April 18, 2012, 09:37:23 PM
It was a sad night tonight. My old Sparmax compressor decided to cark it on me. Oh Sparmax compressor, I fondly remember the hundreds of hours work you did for me without complaint for the last 7 years but it seems that I just asked for a little too much.

Had the airbrush full with some Olive Drab ready to go after spraying some steel and deck tan on my Kshatriya and it went and died. It was fun cleaning the air brush with no air. Thinners don't taste nice on the lips.....

Point of this story? Just forked out $130 for a new compressor from Princess Trade which, fingers crossed, will be at my place on Friday. ;)

@sonar: The 23ml acrylics are $3.95 (or sometimes $4.95).

@GoZ: Equipment only dies when you really don't want it to. I had my Sparmax air compressor shake itself off my workbench once; amazingly it survived but the hose connector snapped clean through. You couldn't just disassemble the airbrush and wash it with cleaner, though?

Recent purchases: Not gunpla but I'm now the happy owner of a HTC One X. It's a beast.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: TheGhostofZeon on April 18, 2012, 10:27:52 PM
@ Shaid : I pulled the air brush apart and flushed with thinners but the only way I could get it all out was to blow through the paint inlet otherwise it would sit inside the brush and cause damage.

And yes, the One X is a beast. I've had mine a week now and I must say that it the best phone I have had - it craps all over my Desire HD which I thought was the best phone ever too.

Post by: fury-s12 on April 18, 2012, 10:32:45 PM
Wow I've been reading about the one x being a contender to knock my beloved galaxy nexus off the top Android spot, just had a look at the specs comparison and wow that's impressive almost the same line up as the nexus but throw in more processor power and Tegra 3 it's impressive, good thing I'm not a fan of sense or is be tempted lol, does it have NFC too?

@goz- sucks but the compressor
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases

It sure does. Sense is also less bloated on this. But hey, it's an Android phone. Just flash a ROM without Sense. I must admit the stock ICS dialer ishs all over the Sense one.

I wasn't supposed to buy the SD but I was trying to tempt my friend into getting his own MG Banshee but he doesn't want to unless I bought the SD Sinanju so I bought it. 

After snapbuilding it I was thiking how to remove the horrible seamlines and masking process needed to make this into a decent painted kit.  The horrors!

Nice. What are your plans with it?
with the 7d, im going to be learning off that as ive learnt a great deal with my 1000d. the latter have lived out its usefulness for me. its still a nice camera to start off but i can see how much the rig limits me on getting the shots i want esp at night with my current set up. can do most of what i want with my current rig
Impressive, can I ask what that set you back?

from eglobal digital cameras site, it set me back $1212 with free shipping. and since ive loaded up on the lens bought since the day i got my 1000d and then some, im pretty much set.

off topic but a tip for future camera buyers. try dwidigitalcameras.com.au it's a lot cheaper than the other online camera shops and even ebay. shipping is free atm as their promo and will arrive in 3 days time. most of my kits are bought from them. except my camera body.

Same place you have. Keep an eye out they come and go. I remember a while ago they couldn't even give them away, they had them on special for about 1/2 price for ages.

Or you could use either of these product with the dry rub transfers. http://www.archertransfers.com/AR22002.html (http://www.archertransfers.com/AR22002.html) or http://www.archertransfers.com/AR22001.html (http://www.archertransfers.com/AR22001.html)

picked this up yesterday for a way cheaper then i thought $40 from bunnings, they had some cheaper no name ones but i decided to splurge, plus this one has some perks i liked, that is it came with a stand and a flexible extension hose dealy, great for the kinda work ill be using it for :D
also for those in the market bunnings have this same model with a 180 piece accessory kit for $50 on sale atm, or this version with stand and 48 piece accessory pack for $40

Not a model kit but still useful for photographing the finished product. A Manfrotto tripod. 190X Pro B with an 804RC2 head. It even has a party trick (see pic 2).
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Wolfman X on May 01, 2012, 02:41:57 PM
i wonder if the tripod can hold its weight if i was to put something like a 7d on it while on the side extended out that far. but always wanted a manfrotto due to its lightweight feel but it being very sturdy.
my velbon tripod is reliable although a bit on the heavy side
speaking of tripods...
(http://www.digidirect.com.au/plugins/Cart/ProductImages/4169_slik_mini-ii-tripod.jpg)
for low angle shooting where such a tripod is required and when i cant shoot at that angle. and due to its small size it can be used like a stock on a rifle due to my tremors esp when building kits and shooting. this tends to keep my camera steady where freehand shooting at times ( esp at low light) is difficult
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: thegunny on May 01, 2012, 03:34:48 PM
From what I've seen the max weight of the 7D with a normal lens (not one of those mega zoom telescopes) is around 1.5kg. The 190X Pro B can support 5kgs at full extension. You can also fold the legs horizontal but due to length of the centre shaft I'm not really sure what use it serves  :-\
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: QuangVuong on May 01, 2012, 04:21:25 PM
Theres one of those Slik tripods at my local Office works, but they will break under a 7D. They may be small, but its pretty weak.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Wolfman X on May 02, 2012, 02:12:12 AM
my velbon one does the job at supporting the 7d and then some. the one my mate has, thin carbon frame tripod. looks flimsy but can take his d7000 with ease. however when i put my tripod in a slant looking a bit upward with the 1000d equip with the dc macro lens ( sigma) it fell. maybe it was the way i positioned it. but glad its only my 1000d which got the damage ( this was well before getting my 7d though and i will never do that to my new rig)

More 7 Eleven Gunpla. This time a Ver 1.5 G30th RX-78-2

Just missed out completing the G30th set. I was pipped by a few seconds on a Gundam Expo clear G30th RX-78  :'( :'( :'(

Although I think there is another 7 Eleven RX-78 that has just surfaced in their uniform colours.

Still, should be a good build. ^_^

Post by: thegunny on May 07, 2012, 06:16:21 PM
Just when I thought I'd scored all the G30th specials another wave has hit the shelves  ::)

This time they are called ver.GFT. The GFT stands for Gundam Front Tokyo which appears to be the name Bandai have given to the 1/1 display at Diver City Plaza in Tokyo.

As well as the 7 Eleven version I mentioned earlier there are a plain RX-78-2, an RX-93, a Core Fighter, a Strike Freedom and a Mega RX-78. The difference appears to be highly detailed markings similar to ver.Ka. The colouring seems to be standard kit colours.

There is also a sectionalised HG RX-78 but I don't know if it's for sale or not.

And just so no one gets rogered on ebay the Strike and RX-78 are priced at 1600Y, the RX-93 at 2500Y, the Core Fighter at 4500Y and the Mega RX-78 is 7800Y.

yup.  It looks like people wanting gentei now have another option and the prices don't seem to bad. I notice they are listing the GFT 7-11 Gundam. 
http://www.genteikits.com/kits/hg-rx-78-2-gundam-gft-7-11-exclusive/
So far I have only found 1 in a 7-11 (And I bought it) but while I've been looking haven't seen another.  It seems to be even rarer than the previous 7-11 kits.

The items in the picture clockwise from top-right:

SIC Decade
SIC Limited Diend
SIC Ixa & Dark Kiva
SH Figuarts Limited Accel Trial
SIC Kiwami Tamashii Faiz
SIC Kiwami Tamashii Momotaros
SIC Kiwami Tamashii Den-O
SIC Kiwami Tamashii Limited Agito Flame & Storm Form

Who cares about the colours, thats what paint is for :)

Which is good, since I ordered the Sinanju and Unicorn Ka decals from Gentei Kits. I'm pretty excited about those, actually. I think the combination of this new Unicorn kit with the Ka waterslides will be rather nice.

Visited local hobby shop and found out acrylic paints are costing up to 4, to $5 a pop, not to mention a crappy range missing the primary colours that I stock up on.

So instead, spent about $150 from bnamodelworld on paints and things that enabled me to expand into 2 new paint lines (gaianote & mr.color), resupplied Tamiya primary with the 23ml pots instead of the 10ml serving I get at the LHS, and a bunch of skin tones - finally I will be able to get cracking on the few GK figures I stashed.

The Sinanju because every one say it's the best MG. the Wing Zero because I always wanted one since I was a kid. and the other one because the idea of a model kit of a model kit making machine is hilarious to me. :P

Last few days have seen the collection grow a bit.

Local toy store had 25% off across the entire store today so I grabbed a few paints and some HO railway things for my Z'Gok Vs Quel dio.

Sorry but Sonar made me do it  :P

7 Eleven collection & 30th Anniversary collection group shots.

Still need the Beargguy to complete the 7 Eleven set and the clear 2011 Expo RX-75 to complete the 30th Anniversary set.

I wouldn't say two or three people constitutes everybody  ;) You will be struggling to find them outside of Japan for a reasonable price. There are sources outside Japan but you WILL pay through the nose for kits that don't sell for anymore than a normal HGUC kit in Japan. I refuse to pay much more than 500 to 1000Y over what they cost new.

Snap up one of the last 7-11 ver. GFT's from Gentei kits before they're gone for good!

Some goodies arrived with my mother in law this morning.. Mk II was a gift (I requested ;D) and my BD preorder arrived just in time to make it into the suitcase. Win.

I would also like to point out that epimethius' post was thoroughly underrated. :D

Of course I do, wouldn't you?

I guess I'm lucky enough that they don't mind doing it. A kit, even as small as a HG/RG is equal to a pair of shoes or a jacket they otherwise may have been able to fit.

They've always been pretty cool about sending me stuff too. If I order something inside of Japan or it's my birthday or something. I try not to inconvenience them too much out of respect but its a good arrangement as far as I'm concerned ;)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/260891127079
I bought one of these coz i missed out on one of the optex ones other members have in a recent officeworks sale, works great, its all attached to the carry satchel which forms the back of the box when you pop it up, 3 extra colors, the main difference to the optex one is that the lights are stand alone not built into the sides (correct me if im wrong optex people) which means its harder to get an even lighting source, especially when they are as close i have them atm but it does allow you to move them around, ie to the front to get some bright light effects, i had no issues with the lights being too bright or anything the walls do a good job there

i threw it up last night and took some snaps on the phone without adjusting anything and its already 100 times better then anything else

So good to see you've come back to the fold  :) Hope we don't see that lot up for sale in a few months  ;)
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Infinity on July 02, 2012, 01:04:01 AM
Hopefully not. Problem was, I had a lot of expense come up quite suddenly so I sold a lot of my kits to help pay for expenses. Nothing serious or bad, just common bad luck. Tv broke, laptop died, car rego and service, vet bill and uni stuff all came up in a 3 month block, which was hard for me to afford on a part time salary :P but yeah, I regret selling a lot of kits but such is life. I'll re buy them someday! But enough of my sob story, it's good to be back. Hopefully by the time I finish my Hi Nu these kits will be here so I can swiftly move on.

Actually he did as the parcel was returned to him for some reason (bless Auspost) so he felt bad about it being over a month so threw in the extra three kits and paid for a courier! (should point out the Gustav alone is about $25, the MSV's are what $10 each plus a courier from WA?). I wouldnt have bought the MSV's as I already have two of each!

The collector i bought the Falke from is a good guy!!

Post by: tristan on July 10, 2012, 08:29:36 AM
Have to go downstairs and check (as I think Ive got one in the 1/288 scale) but Im pretty sure there is a Juaggu in the set (unless Im thinking of the next kit size up). Its potluck as to what you get!! (Ive got 3 or 4 guntanks and RX78-2's!)

Cool pick up as they are fun to paint (Mokana Man and I have 1/288 scale threads here somewhere).

Would kill for the second set but they are impossible to find!!

But it is a smashing book and so easy to read

NooooOOoo I caved in. I couldn't wait for the Zaku marine kit anymore (mostly because of its clenched fist woooot!) so went and bought B-club's Dra-C hands....What pushed me beyond the edge was that there are a PAIR of clenched fists (instead of the leftie in the up coming kit). Now I'm so going to cast and recast them until every single Zaku in the my land have them pairs!

Some stuffs for this month from Mandarake and Amiami again. I managed to haul some pretty rare stuff from Mandarake again which are Armor Plus Tekkaman Rapier and Megahouse Vardant for relatively cheap price. Didn't expect i can find Vardant action figure in reasonable price considering it is sold at $300 on Ebay by scalpers.

This private warehouse option is killing me. It's too addictive.

For those thinking about expanding into other paint lines, HK site luckymodel.com is having a minisale for some vallejo model air/AK interactive sets. Their 16 basic colour set is going for ~ 22USD + shipping (around 10?) - for comparison, BNAModelworld price is about 60 and your brick and motar shop probably 70-80. A good chance to get the starter set and mix-match some other colours then ship everything via surface if you are not in a hurry I reckon. Will save 50% on retail in Aus.

Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Solo on July 20, 2012, 11:45:01 AM
It looks pretty good from what I've seen opening the box up - a big box with lots of runners and plenty of good colour separation. Even comes with water slides! Only thing I was initially a bit disappointed with was the hands - the silver knuckles are a dodgy looking sticker that goes on, so I'll have to paint that.

I'll try and not be lazy and post some pics/thoughts up when I'm done. Going away on holidays tomorrow, and I'll be taking him with me. This one will be a OOB build, with Tamiya panel line accents, etc. around the place and a flat coat when the weather is good.

Have fun with the VF-25, they are an absolute bastard of a kit. Most people that I know have forgone the transformation side and just modelled it in one of the three modes. Transforming rips the decals to pieces and from what I've heard the stickers don't fair that well either.
Title: Re: Your most recent orders/purchases
Post by: Solo on July 20, 2012, 12:58:54 PM
Hah! Yeah, I'd heard that... To be honest, I've got little to no interest in the Gerwalk, or Battroid modes, so it pretty much suits me to build the fighter only!

Reading up on some reviews before I bought it, I decided that I'd have to do a fair bit of detail painting to replace the stickers, so I'll see how we go...

I never feel bad about my orders after seeing what Tristan orders :)
.....sadly this is true!!! Though I do get lots of little things as I lose interest in the bigger kits!!!


Annoying thing is there is more in my warehouse waiting to come in!

Out of curiosity how much did u pay? Looking into maybe ordering a special rg justice (freedmon is oos unfirtunantly) and it comes to about $48 or 3900 yen before p&h. Normal rg justice is 2000 yen on hlj so the one i might try and get is nearly double that.....

Post by: ChaosRR6 on August 08, 2012, 08:38:07 PM
ah good thinking 99. i mean 666 :) dont know why i didnt add it here. anywhos,
my rg from there where 42 bux, if i orderd from hlj with post id saved a couple of bux. Is the special Justice the deactive mode?

Hey guys,

Just showing off some of the stuff I've picked up to begin my journey down the road of Gunpla and Mecha building! Haha, it was my friend who somehow sucked me into all of this cool and awesome stuff when I was in Hong Kong, I ended up buying these:
(http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg255/scaled.php?server=255&filename=20120807184335.jpg&res=landing)
Liger Zero Panzer!
Liger Zero Jager!
Liger Zero Schneider!

Still waiting for the release of the vanilla Liger Zero next month to get the whole set ><

But then I started to look online about tips on how to build them...thats when I started to learn all about Gunpla, and how deep the hobby really goes~!
Kept on digging and decided I wanted to get some Gundams to practice on before I get stuck into my Zoids, because those things are soooo complicated...I think over 500 pieces per set, or something crazy like that...
So I went on to find HobbyLinksJapan, and ordered a ridiculous number of kits...(I plead temporary insanity...)
This was the result of a lack of self-control:
(http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg802/scaled.php?server=802&filename=20120820173546.jpg&res=landing)

Highend Master Model RZ-007 Shield Liger Bang Ver.
00 Gundam   
Sword Strike Gundam   
Death Saurer (D-Style)   
HG 1.5 Gundam
Blade Liger (D-Style)   
HGUC MS-07B3 Gouf Custom   
HG Gundam Kyrios   
HG 0 Gundam (Type A.C.D.)   
HG Aile Strike Gundam (Remaster)   
HG Blitz Gundam (Remaster)   
VF-1S Battroid Valkyrie   
VF-1J Battroid Valkyrie

I think I went a little over board as someone who just started out...perhaps I should have just limited it to a few...But anyways there are some more that are in the pic too that my friend sent me from HK, including:

MG Gundam Exia
RG ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam
RG ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam
AND
RG ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam Deactive!!!

Planning to stick to MGs now after having had a go at the 0 Gundam, kinda think 1/100 scale will be much more enjoyable as the parts aren't so tiny...mostly anyways haha

- How white do you need it? If you need an extreme "So White It Makes A Gundam Look Dark" white, maybe just use White Primer and drown the parts in it? ^_^

Seriously, though. Maybe you could try applying a tiny bit of Smoke and a dull coat just to offset the pink. I don't think the Berserk Fuhrer will look too good if it's TOO white.

haha it won't be dentist surgery white im using tamiya plain white i think is its actual name and it will be top coated flat and panel lined so it won't be 'clean' id love to shade it but ill leave that till i have a airbrush unless the post shading using the weathering kit I'm attempting on the sd musha is a big success

what body is that? i too picked that lens up some weeks ago to replace my sigma 17-70 3.5-4f dc macro due to its piss poor overall quality of shots from 50 to 70mm. sold that lens to a friend who would make use of its macro focal length while i have that 25-105mm though now being true macro but a new workhorse lens while i still got the 60mm for macro


also i picked up MG age 2, and a few figmas along the way. one being some character from dog days and black rock shooter anime ver. big fan of black rock shooter and got other brs figs figs esp the medicom brs which i picked months back

i havent built it yet but i would think the fury is a good one to do an armour recolor on as both the zoid and the kit can go sans armour by design (no complicated building to work out how to paint and keep built), plus the armour is entirely one color so it would be a simple paint every armour piece another single color affair, no masking etc ;)

And yes, I really need to get a better camera (or, more correctly, a camera).  I've been waiting for something fitting for my first master grade, and what better than the first suit from the latest Gundam series?

So far for OOO, I have two driver belts (OOO and Birth) that I plan on using for cosplay. I got the Kamen Rider W Driver belt as well with all his common memories.
