    Just a quick heads up for those who are interested... the preorders for Bluestreak and Shiny Meister are live on Hobby Link Japan.

    I just ordered mine, you should probably order yours ;)

    HLJ is a retailer you don't want to buy from if you plan to keep your item MISB and undamaged; there's a reason shipping is so cheap (little to no protection).

    Really?

    I order everything Japanese from them and have never had a problem.

    In fact, in the last 3 months I have 6 items delilvered, mostly delicate anime models, and the packing was very, very sturdy and everything arrived in perfect condition. The boxes are so good that I reuse them for shipping things that I sell online.

    You also have the choice of shipping methods and like most things, you get what you pay for.

    Me?
    For sure, I love Binaltech and especially the die cast stuff.

    Arcee and Convoy will be preordered as soon as they are advertised ;)

    Used to use HLJ for Binaltechs, gundam model kits and some soul of chogokin stuff.

    Since then I've broken it to fantofan, 1999.co.jp and BBTS. Never looked back.

    I cancelled my Meister pre-order with BBTS the other day, just decided I didn't want him, especially for that price. Blah.

    With the crappy US economy and the declining value of the dollar, I find it hard to preorder anything directly from Japan.
