    Great place to buy P Bandai

    Hey all, figured i'd share.

    My friend Karen, has a new site.

    https://dreamsstudiok.com/

    You can email her for kits that are announced and she can preorder them. She charges almost nothing for doing it, and shipping to the US from HK, she knows how to use the best cost, as well as looks for discounts. Mind you, for kits, you have to order before they're released as its harder to get once they're out.

    Thanks for the update Squee. Always good to have more places to buy rare kits.

    Re: Great place to buy P Bandai

    The prices freaked me out for a second. HKD is rather different from USD. LOL 438.00 HKD is only around $56.00 Not bad at all. I can afford these prices, but shipping? I guess I will just have to find out. But you say that she goes the cheapest route so that is cool, as long as the cheapest route doesn't mean it will arrive 8 months from now by way of the slowest ship in the fleet. LOL

    When I had my 1/35 Sinanju Bust shipped ground. It came over by boat, and arrived around 4 weeks after it was initially shipped.

    That's pretty damn god for ship. Are you east or west coast. Not that it REALLY matters, If we can get P-Bandai of a very low mark up (Because lets be honest there has to be a profit in there someplace. Just don't gouge me with it.....EBay) I'm gonna do it. I did get a bunch of stuff from Gentei Kits but shipping is rather heavy at times. I will give this new place a go and see how it works out.

    lol sad part is you're right. im doing mills and lathes next and i have very little experience on CNC mills. ive been told my experience with manual mills will only help a little. and there is a lot of the code between lathes and mills are the same but mean different things on one or the other and different things in different situations. and on top of that we have 5th axis now so FML.

    Re: Great place to buy P Bandai

    To get back on topic, I've had a kit shipped for almost nothing, and it took a little over a week to arrive in NY. I need to have her ship me my Quebeley Damned.

    I usually buy my P-Bandai kits from Big Bad Toy Store.
