MicroAce - New Releases

Recommended Posts

Kamome

The Microace Isaburo Shinpei sets are still around in a lot of shops in Kyushu but most are a little expensive at between ¥15000- ¥18000. Ami has them on preorder for about ¥11000 so I can finally be comfortable with the price point.

Series 719-700 Fruitea (2-Car Set)

The least one is pretty interesting... Fifty Two seats of Happiness? Are there only 52 seats in the train?  🙂

I wonder how long it will take for them to come out considering how many times the Keihan Keishin 800 Series models have been pushed back.

Wasn't the issue with the Keihans license related?

I love when they say original release schedule After Nov when originally it was supposed to be July or August.

As I thought, it was confirmed that the Keihan's (and the Maya 34) should arrive at your favourite shops around December 4. They would not have made that change from after November to early December without having a clear release date in view.

Oh WOW guess I am REALLY hyped by MA's latest 2 posters:

 

JNR 0-series, Osaka Metro, Kiha-11 & Hankyu 9000 series

 

Seibu 3000, Maine 40 & E130, 131 & 132 ~

 

I am so getting the 2 E130s! These models have been priced crazily high on the after market on Yahoo Auctions and they look really nice!

 

Just curious, what's with the JNR 0 series? I mean the headlights certainly looks different...

I wish they did the KiHa11-300 in JR Tokai livery as they are the only KiHa11 variants left in service with JR Tokai.

The original idea for the shinkansen is that when used in imperial service they would be painted differently.  Originally they had a white V painted on the pilot, then later the blue stripe on the nose.  IIRC this didn't last long, as since there was no dedicated royal shinkansen set the extra effort of taking a regular set out of service for painting made doing such unpopular.  I believe the term to google is 0系 お召し列車, or 0 series calling train.  You can see drawings of both liveries on this blog post.

The 100 series X1 set now costs 35,000 JPY more than it did in 2009. :^)

 

Edit: Owait, 2009 release was the JNR version. Sorry. Surely, JR logos are worth the 35k.

Well surely it will also have proper couplers now for close running now, right? Surely? Right? Of course it will! Right? (slowly dying inside)

I had expected this one a bit earlier.

MA statement about the impact of the Covid-19 virus on their release schedule. Nothing concrete but disruptions for the foreseeable future. This is a machine translation.
 

Quote

 

Impact of infectious disease epidemic on product shipment (2020.02.28)


Thank you for using our products.

Due to the impact of the new coronavirus in the countries where our products (N gauge) are produced, as of the end of February, various disruptions have occurred due to disruptions in logistics, personnel, and parts procurement. For this reason, the shipment time of each N gauge product currently scheduled for shipment will be delayed from the initial forecast. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by customers waiting for product shipment.

The delay situation differs for each product, so it is difficult at this time to provide specific shipping forecasts individually. We will continue to collect relevant information, and we will inform you of the shipping time as soon as it is decided. We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your understanding.

In addition, the Shizuoka Hobby Show scheduled to be held on May 16th and 17th will be canceled, although it has already been reported on the official website and the press . Thank you also for your understanding.

Wait, I'm safe.  I would love a Shorty E130 for the JR East Suigun Line, but I can restrain from paying MA prices to have a shell to splice down.

Banetsu West 719s! I keep throwing money at the computer screen but nothing is happening! The standard gauge 719-5000 is interesting too if only as an oddity but price will probably stop me from buying it.
