would be wonderful if microace made the figure set for the characters on the train to go with it like they did for the galaxy express 999 sets!

 

well at least Anpanman would be pretty easy to make with a figure and a few layers of blobbed paint!

 

btw i do have a few Doreamon and Pokemon charms that are like 8-12' tall scale to make some plaza show/displays with. i eventually want to have a nice train plaza in front of a large station where there can be rotating fun displays of things like these figures, the mach 5, batmobile, sculputures, art/culture, etc.

This is made by tomix I think it's a special that going to be sold off at a show.

 

HS are purchasing them and reselling them

 

also a portion of profits from sales are going to tsunami/earthquake fund

 

It is a really great looking model and thinking about how the model is being obtained by hs and that it's likely inflated due to a painted train, looks amazingly awesome and is going towards a charity the price really isn't that bad.

 

I'm assuming it would have a flywheel though it does not state.

 

likely to be using same build as this http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10160432 the undercarriage details certainly look similar to the pics

im curious, where did you see the tsunami relief part? hs did not post that on their blog or the item description.

 

i cant see it doubling in price due to the paint job, tomytec has done painted trains at the regular price. there would be a bit for the license i guess, but if its a charity train then i would hope they would get the license for free. even so are they going to contribute half the price of this to the tsunami relief? i kind of doubt that and i would expect them to make a bigger deal out of that. i would hope that tomix would throw in their profit as well to the charity.

 

perhaps if hs is buying them retail at the show and then reselling that could drive the price up if they are putting in a good margin on it.

 

i would probably buy for tsunami support if a large chunk of the money was going to the effort, but its not feeling like it here.

aside: while reading some of the hs blogs i noticed this fun translation at the top of one

 

HAS Been written this article in Japanese.

We apologize for your Inconvenience, and your for your Understanding. is a mound of shrimp paste.

 

i LOVE mounds of shrimp paste! jr

Have a look at the last car... the eyes are evil but the train looks really good from it's color scheme
