Just got back from Volks showcase Akihabara

Post by sharky » Thu Aug 30, 2007 8:17 am

I'm currently in Tokyo for business and got some time, so I drop in to Akihabara's Volks show case today. And ended picking up an Luminous full equipment (calvaryR) plus some other stuff, spending Yen 40,000 in the store.
For FSS kits, there are a LOT of selection, even the new mighty series and a couple of Led V3's. There was a finished SAV Bangdoll but no kit for sale yet.
Also check out some other places, most are pretty expensive, the Yensing is at Yen70,000 but the most expensive was the Moonlighter's Bubirons at Yen104,000.
I did see Silicon-Tribe's Luminous for sale at Yen15,000 and CalvaryR at Yen23,000 which seems to be reasonable.

No pictures this time? :P .

How long will you be there for? The release date for the store and on-line shop is 9/8, so if you're there long enough, you'll be able to get one. That's if you're interesting in getting one.

No pictures. They have put the displays in a very open area, it is hard to take when they don't allow you. :(
I'm leaving today and was not planning to get the new Bangdoll anyway. The old MM is already very good.

There is no reason for "Moonlighter's Bubirons at Yen104,000"

Even at list price, they are lucky they can sell it
