Customs is always annoying. If someone sent it to you as a gift or if you imported whatever it is, they will be suspicious of everything and check everything; especially with the whole international issues of terrorists mainly being the biggest concern.

Do you know anything about customs? You declare what it is. They use xray scanners... Why the f--- would they have to open it? It says on it "plastic model kit" they scan it "Yep that shit is plastic". Now if I said it was a model and it was really a brick of Cocaine. Then yes there would be a problem. I'm asking if there's an issue with customs there. If he sent sometime to me as a gift, it would arrive at my door. No bullshit.

In many occasions, it depends on the individual. Some of those custom staffs will give you a hard time when they’re in the mood for it, hoping to get extra cash from you. As for gifts, I'm not really sure since I haven't experience picking up gifts from customs before. All the souvenirs & gifts from abroad I get from relatives and colleagues are directly given to me or delivered to my house via local courier or FedEx.

Yeah exactly. If I send it to your home, it would arrive just like that. It wouldn't be a business transaction. It's more like a commission. I wouldn't do it either way. I was just teasing. I was curious about how things worked there. Similar as to when you asked the cost, of getting those wing kits.

Don’t worry, I get your message ;). And I’m still hoping for Bandai to release those bloody HGs from FC :p.

I would much rather see Bandai do a new version of the MG Shining and MG God Gundam. :p

Ugh, why would Bandai want to release arguably the worst and ugliest gundam series?

Tell that to HG Shining, God, Master + Fuunsaiki, and not one, but two versions of HG Nobel Gundam. So yeah, "why" indeed :rolleyes:.

A cowboy Gundam Maxter? Give me that shit right now! Do it, Bandai! :D

That is some of the silliest shit I've seen on a Gundam yet.
Naturally, I want one.

Customs always suck ass. That's why I don't buy from like HLJ.
I guess this is one area in which being a cheapskate and having a taste for old HGs comes in handy- my orders from HLJ are almost always small enough that there's no customs charge.
Guess that would be an issue if you collect stacks of MG boxes at a time though.

LULzzz. Shipping does blow though. Customs aside.

Thats not a lot, compared to the other gundam series

Those revolver shoulders... I could just imagine the pilot screaming "GODANAAAAAAR~!" while using those, if they are weapons that is.

And that souped-up'd Dragon Gundam is going to put Epyon to shame, appearance-wise. While I do have issues with the other Gundams' appearances... they are just line-arts so I'll cut them some slack.

They aren't really very stylish. Interesting designs though. Could be worse. Could be a lumberjack lol

The point is Bandai made them at all, and not just one half-ass attempt like HG G-Saviour, but quite a number of line of MGs, HGs, & NGs which are still more than Gundam X (X doesn’t even have any MGs). So yeah, “why would they?” indeed :rolleyes:.

I think they should make a Gundam based on Abe Linkin or Georgy W. Then again, a cowboy is hands down the ultimate representation of ‘murica :D, just like a samurai is to Japanese.

Im saying that the series does not deserve it, its barely even a gundam series in my opinion, and yes, I want more Gundam X kits, i believe that there is a DX Gundam HG kit coming out soon?

Patriot's Blade 2013-08-31 01:32

i think they should've made Gundam Thunderbolt into an anime instead, as the flagship Gundam series with Build Fighters as the escort, DEM SHEILDS!! :heh:

Certainly getting more kits from Gundam X would be a dream. Getting G-Falcon for HG would be cool. But even better if bandai releases Virsago ChestBreaker and Ashtaron Crab Hermit to have them do the satellite launcher would be epic. And getting Bertigo......

I also want to collect the Shuffle Alliance as a HG kits.


Bandai and their remastered kit is getting too old and repetitive.

“Barely a Gundam series” does not exclude G Gundam from Bandai’s product marketing. Bandai made kits out of mechas that have the potential to sell, it has nothing to do with the nature of the series or the plot/story. So, as long as (Japanese) people like the design and it sells, any mecha is “worth” to be made into kits.
