For limited edition ones, have to look for them in smaller shops in akihabara. For normal kits, go yodobashi camera coz usually cheaper

What about the pricing? Will it be cheaper compared to online or local?

You will have real lucky to find the specific vintage and rare ones.

I was lucky to found mine - SH Figure Art Dragranzer at only 7000yen only (Used complete BIB). Plus I got it at Tax free cos I hit 10K yen (added a few RGs and HGs kits)



The store keep assuring me that it is used and no box (only plastic inner box) and no manual. Asking me if I sure to buy that...

No need to confirmed whether its SHF or RF becos..... I have both version now...

Now I lacking SHF ryuki survive figure...

Apology - OT way too far away.

yodobashi camera is 30% off the yen price. eg RG are mostly 2500yen kit, so it shld cost ard 1750yen (1890yen with tax) or about SG$24 in yodobashi camera.

definitely cheaper than hobby shops and dept stores here, or online shops.
but sometimes there are dept store clearance sale, or ppl selling way below cost price, so u can keep a lookout.

Based on the current exchange rates, will be cheaper than local shops for sure, even when they are having their so-called 30-40% off.

Against online stores like HLJ, prices will be similar but you do not have to pay for shipping.

About the limited kits, you will have to comb through small shops as chances are, these limited kits have been swiped off the main sales channel and only available at those 2nd shops.
