    I'm eagerly looking forward to some reviews once other rpf members get this in hand. I want one and in the photos it looks great, but I'm still skeptical of the quality 😅

    Hey theflightyellz is this a pre-order? Also what's the shipping cost like as compared to amazon.jp?

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't see that info on the previous page nevermind.

    EDIT EDIT: Also has anyone used the Hobby Link Japan site before?

    Standard Int'l Shipping Usually ships by SAL Small Packet
    (averages 10-30 business days)
    1,380
    Standard Int'l Reg. Shipping Usually ships by SAL (Registered)
    (averages 10-30 business days)
    1,790
    Express Int'l Shipping Usually ships by EMS (Trackable)
    (averages 2-7 business days)
    3,020

    Think that's a variant colourscheme to the standard one? There's a version with blue grips as well.
    Either way, the actual 'core blaster' itself looks like a great (cost effective) base for customization.
    'Amber' grips on the standard version might need dyeing or recasting as well http://argo-sha.com/fullcock/009_takagi_pb.html

    Apologies for the double post, but has anyone got any experience with LED/Switch kits for the PKD?
    Obviously hard to say without actually having it in hand - but it'd be good to know how well existing kits will fit this (and if they don't, if anyone will be offering them specifically for this model).

    Another post with some production updates and details here:

    Looks fantastic. It might be hard to add lights to this as it is likely glued together to make it water tight. I'm not sure if I would try my hand at popping it apart. Being clear plastic it has less rubber content so the plastic is more brittle than solid colored plastic.

    We will see hopefully in a few weeks though.

    Followed the link to the Japan Amazon site. Listed for 11,500 yen or $113 USD. Little steep for a water gun

    Sounds like a third party seller. Retail is 1,200 yen.

    Since this is based on the Elfin Knights Blaster, which was really warped, I hope they fixed that flaw in this new one.
