As you may recall, awhile ago I mentioned having discovered the availability of a recast of the B-Club resin parts to convert an MG Gundam ground type into the little-known Gundam Pixie from Cross Dimension. Those parts are evidently still available, and seven of the ten orders required to do a production run have been placed.
Once again I wish to call out to any readers who might be interested in building one of the least celebrated Gundam variations (or who might just want some neat parts for a custom model) to consider putting in an order for these Gundam Pixie conversion parts. If you enjoyed the original side story included in Cross Dimension 0079, appreciated my humble continuation of that story in Cross Dimension 0080, are a fan of obscure mobile suit variations, or want to indirectly contribute to getting yours truly a most excellent birthday present (even if the production run started tomorrow the parts probably wouldn't be delivered till around my birthday in September), then take a look at the parts and consider placing an order here.
With only three more orders to go, I'm hopeful I'll get a chance to build the Pixie after all. However, I know those three orders could take years to be placed, if they ever come in at all. In the hopes of greasing the wheels a bit, I'm offering a small incentive. I recently won a $5 discount code to GGInfinite, the Gunpla and modeling supply store associated with Gundam Guy. While I'd like to use it myself, the code is only good through August, and realistically it's not too likely I'll be building again by then. As such, I'm offering my discount code as a token of gratitude to the first person who puts in an order request for the Pixie conversion parts.
The discount code will go to the first person to send me a screenshot of an order confirmation from Hobbyfan. (You can find my e-mail address on the About page.) My offer will stand until the end of July, so on one hand you may have plenty of time to think about it, but on the other hand somebody else might think faster.
I know $5 off an order from GGInfinite isn't much, but perhaps it's enough to spur someone into giving the Pixie parts some thought. Meanwhile, if this little contest proves successful, perhaps I'll arrange for other prize contests in the future…
