Thx. I notice they don't have a price on the item. For those of you who did place this item on back order, how much was it?

As shipping over $39 is free in North America.

If you order from SPP, it is New Taiwanese Dollar $1500+ shipping.

In US $, w/ today's conversion rate, it's $44.27.

So w/ $11 to spare on shipping, it all adds to be about the same.

MY problem is, they have a new gundam modelling book that I want. Do a search under the word 模型 and you'll know what I mean.

And from my last order, shipping is cheap, as we are talking about New Taiwanese dollar. Their currency is weak.

:shock:

People from Fatima Garden saying that they have received Chinese KF !~

:P :P WEEEE~~~!!

I want mine now~~! :twisted:

All of them mentioned that the box is HUGE :shock: , and the packaging might not be protective enough, someone's book is slightly damaged :x Guess I should be prepared for the worse :(

Also, it seems true that it is indeed a limited print, since there is a number issued with KF.

Happy Hopping > hurry and try to order it, before it's out of stock.

I have already received my copy of KF since last saturday, and according to a HK fan who posted in Fatima Garden, it is available for sale since the 10th.

Any luck with your order? Have u tried Kinokuniya?

okay, why is the printing of the pic so poor? I don't care whether Sharp Pt. has the authorization from toyspress or not, but the printing quality is quite poor compares to the Japanese ver.

If toyspress authorize the printing, then both toyspress and SPP has to blame. If SPP doesn't have the authority, then it probably makes more sense as it looks as if they took an regular Japanese copy and duplicate it instead of from the master copy.

Did you guys notice the print quality is inferior than the JApanese ver.?

So you got your copy huh?

Yeah, just like I mentioned above, and also in another thread, the paper and print quality cannot match the JP version. SPP has the legal and authorised permission from Toyspress. I guess either SPP's printing equipment are unable to print better or Toyspress didn't want to give them the original mastercopy (I can understand this can be a very sensitive issue).

no, I saw it at a friend's place. Judging by the low value of NT$, I'm going to fax them and order it.
