if you live in london you'll know how hard it is to find a source to buy your stuff.
so... @anyone who lives in UK (london):
dunno if this is old news or not. but anyway, in trocadero (leicester square), tokyotoys have opened a store there. prices are the same as their website. went in today, some things are reasonably priced, some were rediculous, but its worth checking out.
oh and they're open 7 days a week until midnight!

was already over and it was shipped immediatly
when the 2nd item came in 5 days later it was also shipped

the only luck I had was that both figures seperatly did not exceed the tax value, while combined I would have
had to pay VAT
Actually i order form HLJ before and they have been pretty good about shipping out items together. The done on seperate orders and not just items form the same order. At the least I never had a problem with HLJ were both orders where show in stock and were sent out seperately.

to expand on my complaint against Hobbysearch.

Both Items were order at the same time.
Item 1 was rls 2 weeks before Time 2.
At the time Item 1 was both items were show in stock.

The reason Hobbysearch gave was because Item 1 was rls in Jan and Item 2 was rls in Feb. Even through both Items were in-stock at the same time. Item1 was ship out first seperate form item2.

Looking for some help getting into...

Resin Kits. Recently I've been getting more and more interested in assembling and painting my own resin kits, but am I'm not really sure where to start once I actually buy a kit. Should I get an airbrush? What kind of glue should I use, will a normal xacto knife be good enough to cut the excess resin?

If anyone has any tips I'd appreciate it.

Resin kits - as in models? There's an anime figurines thread here where a lot of people knowledgable about model kits and such seem to hang out. They mostly showcase their figures, but I think they discuss some things as well. One member has his own website, and his Tutorials section might be of interest to you. Asking questions in that thread or on his website might get you some good responses. Hope it helps!

The "Twilight" song by ELO is definitely fitting as it was the theme song for the hit J-Dorama Densha Otoko.

For the record, those aren't mine, I'll go bankrupt just by owning these.
I own just a few figures and already I'm fretting on where to store them.

Wonder how this guy is gonna cope when an earthquake hits? Or when he needs to move?

looking at some trekkies/SW/TF collector's 'inventory' this doesn't surprise me, nor do I find
the need to be sceptical about a collection of that size

Jebus! that must be what otaku heaven looks like

Being a collector is serious business O.o"

I only have a few but adding up the costs from that is already a mini fortune. Got to give a hand for the guy who is willing to skip lunch for his hobby
