=)

I will edit this post with links. =P

I don't know what you guys are talking about. I found a bunch of places online that has them.

Well for me I only really like dealing with HLJ as theres no real point of me buying from America.
Even if I somehow found something a little cheaper I can't be arsed setting up more accounts.

but im not surprised that it is always sold out so quickly, its one of bandais best MGs afterall!

Yea, I think it was in stock in the summer but I didn't have the money for it then and when I did it went outta stock and has been since!>_<
And I also don't like buying stuff thats outta stock or backordered, prefer having everything in stock so they ship at the same time.

@Bonta Kun
Just make an Amazon.com account or do a trade with someone.
Like buy something for another person living in the US and then in exchange have that person buy you the kit and ship it out to your address.

Something like that.

So for example, (not saying I would do it), give me like PS Store (US dollars) codes and then I could get you the kit and ship it out. Or just give me another kit that I want, and then I could get you the F91.

Anyway, you don't even have to make an Amazon account... I gave plenty of other locations where I found the kit...

the problem is that for us europeans its actually pretty tough to find gunpla at a good price. we usually buy it from HLJ only because they simply have the best price for us!
if bonta orders it from amazon in the USA he basically has to pay for the kit itself, the original shipping from japan to america, the shipping to europe and the customs fees! importing it from the states is simply not worth it for us!
and at all shops that are based in japan that have decent prices its sold out.
ishop2go has it in stock but they are a tiny bit more expensive than HLJ: http://www.ishop2go.com/productUR_00...18_Prt_en.html

Doesn't the European version of Amazon carry it?

we dont have a european version of amazon, we only have versions of it for each individual country here.
some of them do have a few models but they are ridiculously overpriced, like 80€ for the MG kämpfer.
amazon.it has some models but thats because bandai is actually distributing their models in italy. the prices are alright but buying internationally from amazon always sucks... you need a credit card and the shipping costs make it more expensive than an order from HLJ again. and amazon itself isnt even selling them there, its always just shops on their market place. and those sometimes dont even ship internationally.

its really quite simple: buying gunpla in europe sucks :P the few models that you actually can buy here are extremely overpriced and the selection is extremely small. and when you buy them from the states then the shipping costs and customs fees ruin it for you. we HAVE to order them from japan, there is no other way. sometimes models pop up on ebay but thats very rare...
anime conventions seem to be a good source for them but unfortunately i was totally out of money during the last big con :P

This ^ and even conventions are usually so stupidly overpriced it's barely true.

Last convention i went to wanted around 110USD (750SEK) for a 1/100 MG Freedom and 162USD~ (1100SEK) for a MG Unicorn Ver. Ka

@Bonta kun

My advice to you is to stick with HLJ. it's the best, fastest and cheapest way to get models in the EU

i managed to snap up a F91 earlier this year, it's a nice lil kit, you won't be dissapointed when you get it.

Had the same issue with 1/144 HG Kshatriya, finally got it after a year? of waiting and it being out of stock or me not having cash.

oh good, so i dont have to waste my time going there XD thanks for that! i would have been so disappointed when i had seen them so overpriced there, too :P

Hey i live in Canada and I order from HLJ on a regular basis then Amazon.. When I ordered from Amazon and for two kits I was charged $200 and the kits came from the United States. i asked myself $200 and this is from the States that blew my rocker, first and last time using Amazon considering i'm so close.

like i said, the problem is that you pay twice for shipping so to say :P the seller had to import the model as well, so he has to raise the price to compensate for it.
the only way to actually safe money is when you have an actual store near by. and even then the prices are usually way too high...
i really hope HLJ will have a special event during christmas again.

so true about the shipping cause that is what killed me.. If im going to order local or international, etc. I only order from Hobbywave or Gundam Planet.. Flat rate shipping which sucks for one kit but the amount it cost me to order and ship from HLJ equals so its win, win both ways. Local stores i won't even get into.. I know about your probelm with local stores in Germany, same goes from where i live..
I plan to stop at FA Unicorn to catch up cause im flooded with kits but Bandai keeps giving out the eye candy..

haha, yeah its true XD but at least they sell the kits all the time and usually dont stop producing them, so at least we can always just order them later.

Oh yeah, i really want to get the Duel when it comes out but like i said i'm holding off for now, I'm a big fan of SEED and the X suits, so you don't know how much its killing me to order one.. I know 2012 is going to be a good line up and we already know half the year of which is coming out for MG's but i have to hold back even if i have to break my fingers from not ordering lol.

& not to mention for MG FA Unicorn the manual is 39 pages in total

maknaedik 2011-12-07 09:47

Is FA Unicorn officially the MG that has the most of number of runners and pages of manual? Damn, that could take weeks to me
