And Tomix just dropped the bomb on the Kintetsu 80000 series Hinotori!

 

Along with some other new releases like the Kiha-58, series 485, E231-500 etc... 

 

I am so hyped for the Hinotori!! 

 

As I said elsewhere, you are always a sucker for a nice shiny new train.

Need to work out if the 185-200 series is one which could have operated Hama-Kaiji services...

Ouch!! HO 489/485 “Raicho” Super Thunderbird 9 car set.
Would it be rude to start crowd funding to get me one of these? How many kidneys do you actually need anyway?

Did anyone else get this email from Hobby Search?

 

I am horribly embarrassed to say that I would have never noticed this.  I will try to do better next time.  

----

Thank you very much for shopping at HOBBY SEARCH.

 

We are contacting you regarding your ordered item below.

 

Product Name:

 J.R. Container Wagon Type KOKI104 (New Color, w/Yamato Transport Container)

 

Manufacturer:

 Tomix

 

 

Regarding the above item, we have been informed by our suppliers that there was a problem with the product.

 

To be specific, there was printing mistake and "Koki 500000" is printed on the side of the cargo although this should be "Koki 50000".

 

We are afraid Tomix has yet to announce how they will handle this situation, but we are expecting them to be replacing these with corrected items.

 

As such, we will pause your order while we await confirmation from the manufacturer as to how they will be correcting this.

 

If you would like us to just ship the product as they are, please let us know in reply to this mail and we can arrange for your order to be shipped out.

 

Otherwise, please wait a while longer for the manufacturer to decide their course of action and notify us.

 

We greatly appreciate your understanding and patience, thank you very much.

 

 

Sincerely Yours,

Hobby Search Customer Support.

I got it as well this morning.  I am just going to wait and see what happens as all my other August pre-orders got moved to later months.

This is not unusual actually. KATO and Tomix regularly mess up, but most times you don’t notice it. Just last year the KATO SL Yamaguchi had a similar mistake. It’s funny to me that they even do such a thing (apologize and then send a replacement body or sticker). In Europe this would be called “a feature” or just plain ignored.

I have been directly affected by a couple of the Kato QC issues. The SL Yamaguchi had a printing error on one coach whereby the number was incorrectly positioned. Also the most recent release of the 787 had a QC issue on the pantographs. In both cases the retailers issued replacement parts as soon as available. Sounds like Tomix are already on it. I hope they’ve checked their HO versions again too.

So they will just issue new containers I guess.

Thanks for mentioning the issue with 8737 and the incorrect printing, I received one yesterday from AmiAmi and had really noticed the problem until I read this and had a look myself, I have contacted AmiAmi and informed them of the issue and sent photos of it as well, I will wait and see what their response is. I have another two on order from Modeltrainplus but I haven't heard from Nariichi about the order so I am thinking he may be aware of this problem and is awaiting replacements, I am keen to get the extra ones as I will be renumbering the KoKi 104's as well as the containers.
