kevinlowl (1 year ago) #10899528Hey, how was KanColle Spring 2016 event for you? Did you get Iowa? Why am I asking this, of course you did, you're a veteran admiral. :D

I had a very bad month for playing kancolle, so I wasn't able to get Iowa unfortunately. I was able to clear up to E-6 though. I was on E-7 trying to clear when the servers went down >_< The sad thing is I really had the resources to complete it, I just really didn't have the time. I ended with 140k fuel and ammo and 150k steel and like 45k bauxite. I will be donating those to the "get myself Bismarck fund" after I finish taking a break. That last event was pretty hard on me. I hope you were able to get what you wanted from the event though!

kevinlowl (2 years ago) #3172541I got a knockoff one from this item #174214 lol. Though, I could use a real HK416. What is this line which you speak of, can I have a look? And thanks so much for asking!
No problem. I love helping out fellow gun nuts :D

The line in question, after some looking around, is called "U.S. Marines" by the Excite company. Their toys are, for a lack of better words, not really good. However, because they provide a lot of over-sized weapons, they fit well with Figmas strangely enough.

So here is the M27 IAR (I couldn't find a good online picture, so here's mine)

Now, seeing as this company isn't a "high-end" company the end result isn't as fancy as other lines. I won't line, up close it looks rather terrible. The details are all there, though, but problematically the model in question is "mirrored", so one side looks like the other. Therefore you see two bolt-catch, two firing switches, etc.

This being said, the scale is still rather appropriate for Figmas and the like. Might be a tad small, but still looks good and fits without any problems so long as the figure has a "trigger" hand. The foregrip also doesn't get in the way (and that's good because it's not removable).

All and all, it's not a bad weapon but not on par with Little Armory by far. But I got mine for about six bucks, so what do you expect? I should also mention that TRU likes to carry rather "generic" military brands around, and some times their weapons are surprisingly good. For example,

Not sure about you, but that SCAR and AR-15 sniper look good to me!

Hope this helps!

Hey quick question. Are you still looking for HK416s? I ask because there is a line of American figures that offer a rather nice M27/416

kevinlowl (2 years ago) #3062839I came here to ask the same question lol.
@God Yagami, I hope I don't come off as "stupid as fuck" lol, but seriously though, why did you choose to learn Chinese over Japanese when you're into anime?

LMAO |D -- No don't worry.
It's because I study foreign trade in college. So I decided to learn chinese too since it's important for business. I hope to learn japanese someday too - at least it will be easier after learn chinese...
I just get tired when people are like "it doesnt matter you have to learn japanese because you like anime", wtf! I don't like sushi and I hear the same all the time :'(
"How come you don't like it? You are an otaku you have to eat sushi"

Japan have some importance in our economy (import/export) but it's veeeeery small compared to some countries as China, USA and Latin América.

kevinlowl (2 years ago) #2688702haha, I know that feel. I just can't help but want... MOREEE >:D (Recently I've been tempted to buy airplane kits as well)
Yeah, there's only so many hobby shops there, the one upstairs and the one at the IT Center. I go to them out of convenience really. I think they're pretty reasonable, I bought a Gundam Marker for RM10 and the price is about the same from HobbySearch including shipping so, ehh. Oh ya, one other place that I know of is Hobby HQ at Fraser Business Park. It's my uncle's shop, though I've only ever bought a bottle of Tamiya Cement from him, haha. He sells mostly military kits and hobby supplies.
Yep it is, airbrush and compressor for something like RM280 I think, can't remember. I'll have to buy the paint myself lol the deal ain't that good. :p

Haha, more more and more right? Do you have space to store them?
Airplane kits... hmm, they need alot of work such as the decals and painting.
Btw, do you throw away the boxes and runners?

The one upstairs? You mean Gamers Arena? Which store at the IT Center? The one on the left of Tamashii Nation?

Hobby HQ? I understand they moved from Midvalley to Fraser?
Wow! You have a relative that owned the shop? Good discounts eh? I believe he must be a hobbyist himself..and influenced you to collect plastic kits? Any figures there? Or just plastic kits?
I am looking for a reasonably cheap cutter, knife etc for the plastic kits. How many of these should I have? Are they cheap?

I have been longing to get an airbrush but I am not sure where to buy. It is too expensive to buy overseas due to the heavy shipping (unless I bring home myself). You know where to get one?
Don't tell me you use Tamiya spray paint?

kevinlowl (2 years ago) #2645274Haha, I see a lot of modellers having this problem of hoarding kits. ;p I buy the tools at Times Square since it's convenient for me there, I'm not familiar with PJ area. ^^" Not sure really, Tamiya most probably. I got a Taiwan no name brand airbrush set for cheap so I could unleash my mad skillz when I eventually paint the kits. :D

Ya, I have been hoarding some...for years.. hmm.. where did I store them? XD
Times Sq eh? I think I know which shops. Are the prices reasonable? The ones I bought were either from Tamiya or some obscure brands that are no longer popular now.

The airbrush you have.. is it a complete set with compressor etc? How about the paint?

kevinlowl (2 years ago) #2664811thank you, I see yours is also building up to be a quite nice collection (pastel and pink eh?) ;D
aaah thank you! I've started collecting figures about a year ago, so it's kinda small ( @_@") I'm trying to get everything off my wishlist, but most of them are really pricey so it's going to take me a while LOL
