For the next 48 hours use the codes CYBERNEWTYPEMONDAY15 for 15% off all UC Gunpla, and CYBERNEWTYPEMONDAY20 when you order five or more UC Gunpla.

Airmail to Canada has been suspended!

Airmail to Canada has been suspended!

Some unfortunate news. Airmail and EMS have been suspended for Canada. This Is particularly annoying because I had a large airmail shipment ready to go today, half of which was destined for Canada.

There is also the option of Yamato Transport. I’ve been hesitant to offer it because it is a little more time consuming to prepare than Japan Post shipments. While they are fast, and reasonably priced when...

Taking Things to the Next Level!

I know that a number of you may have noticed that it's been taking me longer to ship orders and reply to emails. There's a reason for this, or actually multiple reasons. The first reason is obvious. Covid-19 has resulted suspensions and delays in the postal service, and has forced me to reship a ton returned items through surface mail. I'm still trying to catch up from that.

The pandemic isn't the only reason though. This past summer has been very eventful and busy. I got married to the love of my life in June, for starters. Also in June,...
