i just place a order from them couple day ago, how ever due to couple kits are preorder item, i'll need to wait till at least July. hopefully i could get it before July 1st.
then i could have all the time in the world to put them together

yeah, i check that kit in GundamPlanet, it is selling at $65 or so, but import 1 kit from HLJ is a bit too much...... even if they sell the kit at $30,the shipping cost is almost as expensive as the kit itself...... i guess i will have to wait till i have a huge order, then i might be able to save on shipping cost.
however, i have until June 30. i could add as much kits as i want to my current order and no extra shipping cost,

i have to pay that much no matter where i order it :P whether its from america or japan, i always have to pay about 25 bucks for shipping.
i COULD order very few kits here in germany but even then id still pay more in total XP

edit: for example
at http://www.yorokonde.de they want 80€ plus shipping for exia ignition mode. but at HLJ id pay only about 65€ if i order it via EMS^^

it sure is, but putting this one together right after i finish the MG Astray, i kinda got these mix feeling...... cause the MG Astray is quite detail, thumb up for Bandai on making MG so much more detail then before. at the same time looking at this PG, the only thing they seem to improve is no screw needed, . i haven't build another PG kit since Striker, it's still as detail as ever, but without screw... i think this is the first one i encounter so far. and yet it still pretty sturdy. anyway, as of this morning, even the body is done, so all that left is both arm, head and weapon.
should be able to finish it by wednesday, as long as i don't play game,

It's nice how we get a view of the color-molded model and the boxart already, and they both look sweet.

The Gundam Age design is definitely growing on me.

What's up with the back spoiler design though....

I'm liking the little vents throughout the body, nice touch

The glowing A is pretty neat too

You can't get detail like that in a non-grade kit

There's also going to be a Master Grade AGE-1 planned, though what it looks like will have to wait down the line.

ic, i haven't get any non-grade or high grade for long time, i was assume that Bandai did such a good job on HG and MG, so they may have up a notch on non-grade as well.

anyway, if they did indeed have a MG for this kit, then i might get one as well,

by the way, did anyone of you have a MG The-O??? i was curious on how big is that gonna be. i'm thinking to add that into my order.

the-O is freaking huge, like 25 centimeters tall! the box itself is about PG box size and even has a handle :P
and its supposed to have good articulation as well^^ check out the videos on youtube, vegeta8259 has done a good job on it
