Where do you live anyway? Non-local (i.e. non-Japanese) stores will obviously get models at varying dates from their local release dates. In my case, it takes a month after release before models reach stores here (Philippines).

The HG Cherudim was released in October, while the HG Seravee was released last month.

Also, the HG Virtue and HG Nadleeh are separate model kits, and are more or less incompatible with each other (i.e. you can't use the Virtue's Armor on the Nadleeh).

I'm in Indonesia...Obviously won't get em arrived here soon...Maybe Those stores want to wait for Arios to came out first then Get the Big 3 altogether into their Stock....
Oh well...Don't need to rush...Since I'm still busy looking for the late HG SEED models as I'm just collecting these stuffs for 3 months only ...Too late I know...I had hard time to find HG SEED Models beacuse most of them are Sold out already...Luckily I still managed to get Legend Gundam ( My All-Time favorite Gundam and My first Model I got..Needless to say I really treasured it), and SF, IJ, Ds, and Most of GAT-X Series Gundam....but No Akatsuki...NOOOO!!!!!....Is Akatsuki also Very rare to find in your place too???

The HG 1/144 Akatsuki is overrated in my area so it is overpriced badly. RM170+ (is it priced at 2400 Yen, which is suppose to be around RM96+)

BTW, Dalong's Seravee review is up http://dalong.net/review/00/0h26/0h26_p.htm

Strangely, both Shiranui and Oowashi Akatsuki kits are rather abundant here, at least from what I've seen. Specialty hobby shops and toy stores like Toy Kingdom have at least one of them in stock last I've seen, and 3 each in some places I've been to.

Dammit...I envy your stores!!...There's not even a trace of HG Akatsuki here in my place which is sucks...I once asked to a Shop Owner, and they said that they afraid to stock it because of it's over-price...
But..About OverPriced...Isn't Akatsuki Model used different material??...You know...That Shiny Gold Colored Kits...What material is it??

The Akatsuki models use chrome-plated plastic, which allows the finish to look very shiny, but pushes the price up as a result. Said coating is also prone to getting fingerprints, and is difficult to paint over.

i got OO HG in OCT, and only now does Cherudim make its way to the shops now so i bought it, Seravee n Arios i hope they dont take too long .

also with akatsuki u have to be careful when u cut the pieces out cuz a bit of the coating might come off, tho they made it so that u cut underneath the coating

Wouldn't that make sanding a pain?

the parts where u cut the pieces of are located on parts that arent coated so they think u wont affect the coating half the time u wont but yeh, i guess the idea is that u dont sand the coating cuz the coating is only on the "top" side

Maybe not for sanding down nubs and flash, but when you want to putty the thing to get rid of seamlines it's more or less assured you'll ruin the coating.

Hence, most professional modellers simply remove the entire gold coating first, then repaint it once complete.

Well, as shown in reviews of the kit here and here, the Akatsuki kits do look good out of the box, and many of the seamlines aren't really noticeable. All that work is only needed if you're a perfectionist.

And yes, Reverie ;-;
