Hobby Search

Recommended Posts

For the first time in a while I have availed myself of the Hobby Search sale. My captive has arrived, but accompanied by a Viacom Blu-ray disc of the Odakyu Romance car, which I didn't order, nor appears on my receipt. I was going to check with HS, but wanted to know if they occasionally give out freebies like this (especially during a sale) and anyone else on here had received something similar.

Hobbysearch has advertised free Viacom bluray when you purchase a qualifying set for a while now. So yes, this is expected.

Yeah me too, even though my item did not fall into the Hobby Search qualifying item... It's nice of them to include it!

Yeah to my surprise too! However, i would have prefered if it went the correct way....  😅

 

Viewing a trip from the rear end of the romance car isnt exactly what i would really like~ 😅

I think you will, i'm guessing they have quite a fair lot of these videos for distribution. It was printed 'Not for Sale' on the back so i think it's some sort of advertising material by Vicom maybe?

Is HS website down for anyone else as well? I can't seem to open it on my browser while other Japanese websites works fine.

Yup, it seems down and has been for at least a couple of hours.
