Ever since the announcement of the Black Tri-Star version of the Haropla Haro was announced, I knew was going to get it. I also knew that I was need to get three, because it is the ‘Black Tri-Stars’ version.
Recently, one of my favorite local shops, Neo Happyland in L.A.’s Chiniatown, announced they had them in stock. And as luck would have it, they were also having a 15% Labor Day Sale. To play it safe, I called last night and confirmed they had them in stock and asked to have them hold there for me. Late this morning, I headed down to pick them up. I also picked up a HGUC MSM-03 Gogg and and a Exceed Zaku Head, Black Tri-Stars version.
I do have to admit, as much as I enjoy the convenience of ordering kits online and having them delivered to my doorstep. There is something special about going to a store the is dedicated to the hobby I enjoy. Be sure to support your local shop, from the dedicated anime/gundam store to hobby/craft store dedicating some shelf space to a few kits.
