  1. Thanks for the reply. I used to pre order lots of kits from tower hobbies who only charge your credit card on dispatch, but they won’t send internationally any more and I can’t use a forwarding service as the tower hobbies system won’t allow non-us credit cards, or PayPal for pre-orders!
  2. Can anyone tell me if I pre-order from Tamico do they Require you to pay up-front in full? Thanks! Luke
  3. Agreed, but unfortunately there are no LHS where I live, nearest is 250km away and in Australia none can guarantee they will get the kits due to very sporadic supply. Tower currently not shipping to Australia.
  4. Does anyone know if you ‘pre-order’ from tamico or fusion do you have to pay the full amount up-front? Are Stella doing pre-orders? Luke
  5. Hi, The $75 Tower Hobbies discount IS in USD, but it only applies to customers OUTSIDE the USA. Here is the e-mail I got from Tower: Special Savings for International Members 12 Ways to Save Plus Tower Hobbies understands that international members could use some extra R/C savings. Place a qualifying order and for a limted time we'll subtract up to $250.00 from the total. All you have to do is click on the appropriate ad number in the list below and it will be placed in your shopping cart. The more you order, the more you save.

  6. Looks like Tower Hobbies just dropped their price another $10 to US320. With the $75 discount for purchases over $300 this brings the price to $245, an unbelievable $33 cheaper than Stella. Postage was cheaper to Australia than Stella too! Regards, Luke Jenner
  7. Tower hobbies are now shipping back ordered buggy champs. My cost to Australia, with Tower Hobbies $75 promotional discount and Tower Hobbies Saver Club shipping, was less than the one I got from Stella Models, which is unbelievable. AUD$400 shipped! Regards, Luke Jenner
  8. Great Question - "How Limited is Limited". What is the highest number someone now has? #01016? Regards, Luke Jenner
  9. Regarding Tower Hobbies, both of my kits arrived today. One was pre-ordered on the 13th of June and one on the 18th of June. Both shipped on the 10th of July. What is really interesting is the serial numbers of the kits. One is #40 and the other is #48! This means some early stock was sent to the USA! Unfortunately, as you probably already know, the bag is NOT included. Regards, Luke Jenner
  10. Hi, I have just been advised that the two Black 934s that I pre-ordered from Tower Hobbies are being picked and packed in the warehouse for shipment! I guess they have stock but are filling back orders as the online stock status is 'Mid July'. Total cost was just under US$210 each shipped to Australia with the $45 promotional discount! Regards, Luke Jenner
  11. Can we use this post for people to post the highest serial number kit so we can determine how many were made? The highest I have seen so far was larbut's 01007. (James Bond Edition!) Regards, Luke Jenner
  12. Luckily in Australia we aren't charged customs duty unless the value exceeds A$1000, (US$800 or 480 Quid). Luke
  13. The $45 discount only applies to people living OUTSIDE of the US (International Customers). The ad numbers don't work for shipping within the US: I quote: "Tower Hobbies understands that international customers could use some extra R/C savings. Place a qualifying order through Tuesday, June 30th and we'll subtract up to $250.00 from the total. All you have to do is click on the appropriate ad number in the list below and it will be placed in your shopping cart. The more you order, the more you save. If Your Order Totals: YOU SAVE Use Ad# $100.00 - $149.99 $20.00 010VA $150.00 - $199.99 $30.00 010VB $200.00 - $249.99 $45.00 010VC $250.00 - $299.99 $60.00 010VD $300.00 - $399.99 $75.00 010VE $400.00 - $499.99 $100.00 010VF $500.00 - $599.99 $125.00 010VG $600.00 - $699.99 $150.00 010VH $700.00 - $799.99 $175.00 010VJ $800.00 - $899.99 $200.00 010VK $900.00 - $999.99 $225.00 010VL $1000.00 or more $250.00 010VM" This is a VERY good deal. When I ordered my 30th Anniversary 934 from them 18 months ago I got $60 off for a $515 kit. That discount would now be $125!
  14. Guys, The 934 from Tower Hobbies is $210-$45 discount = $165! Jason, who is a superb seller, is offering the Japanese version for $285, WITH BAG! Question: do the collectors out there think the Bag is worth a US$120 premium! Does anyone have a photo of the bag? Regards, Luke Jenner
  15. If this happens to you in the future there is no need with Tower to cancel your order and create a new one - potentially losing your place in the queue! Simply e-mail orders@towerhobbies.com and quote your order number, explain the issue and they will apply the different ad number for you. They just did it for me on a Black 934! Regards, Luke Jenner
