The face on Dalongs Trans-Am Exia sure is messed up. Mine looks normal though. Odd...

(from: http://www.rainbowten.co.jp/english/index.html)

They always have it in stock and the shipping is pretty fast too (less than two weeks from Japan to Canada)

thanks...I've wanted to order rainbowten but how reliable is their shipping, it sounds a little sketchy to me

I only order from RainbowTen. I've placed orders on a monday, and had items arrive by friday... of course I'm using EMS shipping. Of the major Japan based online shops, I buy from them first.

You can get some at Hobbyco in the QVB in the city ...

i am thinking did he stick properly or not? :confused:

Sir Dearka 2008-04-18 08:06

^I suppose that somehow the guy just assembled the head and forgot/didn't feel like sticking the eyes before linking the vision core with other parts. Maybe it's the effect of applying the sticker externally...

I love R10 because they allow AIR shipping. Its almost as fast as EMS but its way cheaper. Its also way faster than SAL. I usually get the item 6-7 days after they send it. R10 also lie for me so I can get the item through customs :)

LOL, seriously, they'd do that? O_o

I'm thinking of buying a Hi-Nu from them; they have it for a reasonable price, unlike what HLJ is offering (7000 yen!).

Like_Clockwork 2008-04-18 15:37

Im just worried about sal because the lack of being able to track it :(

Zerowinger 2008-04-18 16:27

I got my impulse & Zaku today! :) im extremly pleased as it now share a place with my megazord :)

Yeah HLJ refuse to do it but, R10 do it every time i order from them. UK customs are crazy (8 "handling" charge on top of customs), so R10 just say the item is 1000 Yen and a Gift so it gets through quick and I don't have to pay a penny.

Yup that's why i buy the models with them for 3+ years. Tricked the customs for 3+ years too :D

I always used SAL and it never failed me, their packing is excellent too, plastic coating around box, outside coating by some Eleven newspaper and guaranteed to have no scratch at all.

RedWing 2008-04-19 12:35

What was your first model? Since im new to modelling mine was Strike Freedom Full Burst Mode.

Sir Dearka 2008-04-19 13:24

My first Model Kit? A 1/100 HG Buster Gundam :]


I've just got Lockon Stratos trading figure and the matching gunpla, so I feel like sharing with my joy:

Like_Clockwork 2008-04-19 22:26

what do you say so you dont have to deal with customs??? also isn't their like 20% off all bandai things on rainbowten?

1. Living in UK they charge you tax for anything over 18 (I think) plus an 8 handling fee. Because R10 put the item as a low amount and a gift I don't have to pay customs. I don't think this affects you if you are in the US.

2. Yep 20% off all bandai stuff. Thats why Hi-Nu is 5600 yen instead of 7000.

I see. So they're having a 20% off, eh? How long will that be effective?

EXEs 2008-04-20 10:34

Fuck fuck FUCK, I broke the arm off my Exia, now I gotta buy a brand new one.

Asides from that, does anyone know when Avalanche Exia is coming out?
