    I recently got the MG 1/100 Exia Ignition Mode, and since its gonna be my first Master Grade build, I want to make it perfect. Which is why I am considering spray painting it. I was thinking about buy cans of spray paint like the Tamiya ones and a can of Top Coat. But the only place i know where you can get them is at a local hobby store ( Comex Hobby), but they cost $8.99 a can and they dont have Top Coat, but i think they have Mr. Super Clear or something and its almost 20 bucks a can!! So anybody know where to buy spray paint for cheaper? (I can't buy from online stores at the moment)

    Ignition mode is with chrome parts. And honestly, that's a few dollars marked up over internet prices.

    I can understand if you wish the paint the exterior but the chrome parts too? The 2nd batch of the Ignition mode will be more expensive.

    well, i dont plan on painting the chrome parts, just the rest of the body. Why would the second batch be more expensive?

    I should correct this and say that the spray paint price is a few dollars marked up over internet prices. If you have no choice, you just have to decide if you really wanna go all out.

    Well, most places are paying the 500 yen and then add a few bucks to make their money.

    Because it was a special promo. It should say on your box "Special Price 5250 Yen" in a big printed seal. That was for the initial release.

    When this batch gets sold out and the re-releases come in, the price is going up to about 7500 Yen.

    Ahh, so thats what. But too bad they made the promo thing printed on the box. I guess the only difference will be that the next batch will have a nice box art.
