Hobby Link Japan sale

Recommended Posts

cteno4

Hobby Link Japan is having a Black Friday sale thru Tuesday. Basically the more you spend the more they discount.

They have not been great lately about stocking a lot of trains,

Thanks for the tip.  They have a few Kato items in stock, but none that really piqued my interest. 

 

I did purchase this guy, though.  X-Plus Godzilla 1989, Osaka landing version.

Good find Jeff! This is perhaps the best deal and the most unbelievable! http://www.hlj.com/product/MRI51003/Rld

 

If I collected Z scale, I'd be all over that Tokyo Marui E231-0 7-car set.  Hopefully someone else from this forum manages to snag it before it goes out of stock.

Aaaargh!!! Only a week or so ago I paid more than twice as much as that for one of those sets in their Black Friday sale.

 

Hmm. I suppose I could buy another one, and then I could have one set for each direction on double track...

You should! It's an unbeatable offer! It's 70% off! If I collected Z scale I wouldn't think twice about this one... It's way too good to miss!

Hobby link at times has some things very discounted, so I snoop around now and then. They also currently have some of the old pro hobby etched metal fence sets at half or more off. They also have a virtual store house where you can put order items and then combine them in what ever combo for shipping later. When I order something I use this then inevitably in a week or two find some other discounted goodie and add it in and ship the bundle cheaper. Wish they stocked more!

OK, I bought it, but only because you made me!  ;-)

Got one too, price was too good

 

It's my first Zscale model.... I hope I have not started another scale :D :D :D

Ha! So, are you going to leave it in the box, or build a simple oval for it to run around? Before you know it, you'll have a room full of Z scale track...

Ahah! You've gone down the slippery slope!

 

Don't blame you, it was too hard to resist... I had to fight for quite a while... Anyway it's out of stock now so...

 

By the way, it has pre-installed interior lights!

It was very slippery.... when I arrived at the end I got two of them in my hands :D

 

I usually have all DCC but for Z scale I think I'll keep it DC I don't want to damage it

It tempted me for a minute! I keep resisting getting z or starting that slippery slope!

I have not experience with HLJ

 

what does it mean when an order is now listed as discontinued? does it mean that I was not fast enough to get it?

When I placed the order the item was in limited stock

 

thanks for your explanation

Seems that the order is proceeding

 

Anyone has seen the ProZ Diorama in action from real?

Yes a couple of our club members had them. Fun little units all ready to go, but not cheap. They gave up before releasing more center units (I think a few of one extension may have shipped.)

 

I think both were looking to sell them. if you are interested I can check.

That's the whole diorama that's discontinued for sometime now. The starter set with entire diorama with lights! http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10167568

 

The thing with Z scale is the trains are often already interior lighted ~ Sweet!

I'd be interested in those Pro Z dioramas too, mainly to run my newly acquired E231 sets.

I'll email them to see if they are still available.
