New from Volks

It's not what I was expecting, but it's a start...

They're reissuing a few kits, too.

I like the looks of this new fatima figure. I'm still waiting for Volks to reveal what they have up their sleeves, at least I'm assuming they are working on a new MH kit :P .

With the way HLJ is going, I don't really expect them to stock up on Alkana, or anything else for that matter.

Their supply of FSS resins seems to be dwindling rapidly, and there's not much evidence of restocking.

I'm glad I snagged HLJ's last copy of the red phantom before it went out of stock. Speaking of which, I got my phantom in the mail yesterday... the speed of EMS from HLJ was well worth the small added cost in this instance. :)

I have yet to check off the parts, but the kit looks great... this is actually the first original Volks kit I've purchased since they switched over to the new style silver boxes. They are so pretty! I sure would love to get some more of those silver boxes... gonna keep my eyes open on Y!J. Granted, the nice shiny silver boxes is only a superficial reason... the more important reason is to replace the recasts I have with superior quality originals...

Newsflash: you didn't get the last red phantom at HLJ. They restocked it, along with Volks Bang and even WSC A-Toll. Still no sign of WSC Prom, though. :(

Who knows what HLJ will choose to stock... It's a real pity they don't bother to get certain items. And why they chose not to stock the Last Junchoon when it was re-issued a few months back is completely beyond me.

Shiny silver boxes scratch really easily. :(

I need that fatima.

I DID get the last red phantom... of the old stock. :P It was marked out of stock for a couple days. I am actually amazed they bothered to restock it... I wonder if they just got 1 or 2 more copies? Or if they got a decent supply?

And yeah, no sign of WSC Prominence.

As for Last Junchoon, I did see a copy on Y!J for a decent price the other day. For those who are interested.

I'd say a great big NO to that one... red phantom is gone again. At least fss kits are moving at hlj... that's encouraging for the hobby as a whole. I wonder who is buying them? Anyone on here?

Still waiting for it though. =/
