Hey guys'n'gals

As you've might have seen in another thread, I've becomed very interested in this kit, after watching the superkewl Vlog on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5RpL8UBNWI

SO if any of you should stumble upon this kit at YJA, or perhaps have it yourselves ... I'd be happy to know.

Here's a couple of pics of the kit!

Furthermore .. if anyone has a scan of the original drawings used to create the figure, I'd be very interested in them ... they would make an awesome wallpaper!

Hope you can help me!

Thanks in advance!::thumb

Why not just contact Tokyo Hunter and have him buy the kit for you? He works for HLJ, but has set up a side business where he acts as a "personal shopper" for anyone who wants something from Tokyo. I've used him to buy originals before. Kinda pricey, but you can generally get what you are looking for.

Hmm, I think Tokyo Hunter has retired (Don't know if he's still doing this for close friends/associates or not). He did have this kit up for personal auction though (A couple of weeks back).

Ah here it is:

Hey Filmy

It's pretty simple ... I didn't know about Tokyo Hunters services ....

I'll try and get in contact with him.

:cry: Why am I always late ??? .... 120bucks would have been a great price for me, considering the value of the dollar atm.

I think, I'll try to contact him nevertheless ... The worst thin that can happen, is that he refuses .... the best is, that he don't :D

I haven't seen any wallpapers and Niθ 's website is mostly a text based blog and doesn't have much in the way of images. Kotobukiya did have a couple of medium rez images on their website. Won't really cut it for large monitors, but might look ok on a 15 or 17 inch screen.

Don't worry, you'll find one eventually. There have been some kits that have taken me twenty years to obtain, but I did finally get them ;)

Will let you know if I come across one in my travels ::thumb

Thanks mate, it's truly appreciated.

I'll see what I can do with the pictures ... if I need then in a bigger resolution, I might try to trace the pictures in Illustrator ....... or ask a friend of mine to do it :D .... he's a true pro in Illustrator

sorry to hear that.

He's currently active in the clubhouse forum. He's right over in Claudio's (Hellspaws77) thread about the アイル video. That's where I know he got two kits.

Well, if you're interested, they're making a PVC version of this kit:



Edit: Link removed. Sorry, what was I on? Of course you wouldn't be interested.
