Today we’re launching something different for all you Gundam fans so please bear with the uber text update below :P We’ve just had a re-stock and are putting the kits back online but we always get requests from you folks to get in older kits, other mecha series kits and generally random anime items. To be fair we always try our best to help out, so this got me thinking why not just open up this system and make it official and available to everyone. So as of today the ability to pre-order on the website is now officially open! So what does this mean to all you folks out there in the gunpla world? Well firstly new kits that aren’t out for purchase yet can be pre-ordered from the website almost as soon as we know about them and if you decide to pre-order a kit you will receive a minimum of a 10% discount off the kit price and as soon as the kit arrives here in the UK it will be shipped out for you straight away allowing you to guarantee getting the kit you want and at the cheapest available price.
To kick start the first ever pre-order we’re giving the Gundam Wing fans the chance to pre-order the 1/100 MG Wing Gundam which is released at the end of this month for an awesome £38 (Retail £44) and what’s even better is that it’ll be in stock in time for the London Expo! Also another benefit of this system will be that anyone who’s been dying to get hold of an old or rare kit can e-mail us at email@example.com and request any of the out of stock kits on the site for pre-order and we will stick the 10% discount onto the current selling price so you’ll be able to get even those kits at great prices. This way basically any kits that aren’t available will now can be ordered in, just as long as they are still available somewhere, and don’t worry we’ll get back to you ASAP to confirm all pre-orders and their availability. Also we will be happy to take in any requests for non Gundam series items, we have always stocked a wide variety of kits but we know there’s much more out there, so if anyone fancies a Groizer X or a Lancelot or even a Mazin Kaiser Kit, send us an email and we’ll see what we can do :)
In addition to this (hopefully) useful feature we have added a new bunch of items to the site with the long anticipated update of the Steel Zeon Logo Keychains and the usual Gunpla updates will continue on the run up to the London Expo. We will also be launching an exclusive black Zeon Logo keychain which will be available at the show and limited to only 50 pieces, so once they’re gone we will not be producing anymore, so get em while they’re still around.
The final note for everyone is that the pre-ordered items that aren’t new releases (i.e. old/rare/other kits) will usually take between 3-6 weeks to arrive depending on how many orders we receive but any order placed between now and the 19th of May are guaranteed to be in stock for the London Expo. So if you’re planning on attending and want to pick up some real bargain kits that you’ve been after for ages, drop us a mail, get them ordered and we’ll bring em down to the show for you . . . . or post it if you’re not attending :P And as always we’d love to hear what you think about this update and any other questions or comments you may have so please let us know and enjoy the Gundam Goodness.
