Title: Bandai Action Bases (In Stock Now at MechaSkunk!)
Post by: fulcy on November 29, 2006, 02:08:19 PM
Alright, yet another poll about bases!  I'm in discussions with a distributor for the Bandai Action Bases, about purchasing a case for sale on my website.  For those that don't remember, here are the pictures:

http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN948215

http://www.gundambase.com/community/news_view.asp?page=1&news_idx=456

They are pretty cool, and can be linked together to hold multiple models together.  They retail for about $4.75 on HLJ, and I'd probably be selling them for about $5.75 to cover shipping of the bases to me from my distributor - but the question is, is anyone interested in these?  Vote now!

EDIT: Oh, one other thing - please only vote if you're serious about purchasing these from me - I want to have an idea of numbers before I actually place an order - thanks!

Those are pretty nice looking actually. I'd take 2 off your hands.

The more I think about it... I might get more than 2... just because I could use them on some of my older kits to replace some of the crappy bases or the excessively large one of the Shinobi Strike.

I'd actually like 3 of them, but my question is (because I don't have a credit or ATM card) can I pay with cash? If not, it's cool because i can just have a friend buy it and then pay him back, but if so, awesome.

I am always willing to work with my customers - when I get these in stock, we'll work something out!

I'd probably buy one or two after christmas if you carried them.
Title: Bandai Action Bases (In Stock Now at MechaSkunk!)
Post by: thor777 on November 30, 2006, 06:58:21 PM
definitely 4 or more
Title: Bandai Action Bases (In Stock Now at MechaSkunk!)
Post by: Oliphont on November 30, 2006, 09:10:17 PM
As long as this isnt a binding agreement, i could see myself buying 1 or 2.
Title: Bandai Action Bases (In Stock Now at MechaSkunk!)
Post by: fulcy on December 01, 2006, 02:52:50 AM
yes, it is!  I will come after you now!   Muahahahaha!  Actually, no, it's not binding - I just don't want the people voting in the poll who have no intention of ever purchasing this base from me - makes estimating whether I can sell a case worth of these guys pretty difficult to determine.

Post by: mrmaigo on December 01, 2006, 03:11:59 AM
Well, there's 23 people wanting at least 60 (I voted 3 but I think I might want 4 now :oops: )
Title: Bandai Action Bases (In Stock Now at MechaSkunk!)
Post by: fulcy on December 01, 2006, 04:08:19 AM
That's really what I wanted to see - since they come in case quantities of 60!  I'm working out the details right now, but I should be buying these in the next few days...

Post by: fulcy on December 01, 2006, 09:39:54 AM
maybe - we'll see what we can do (depending on how many you order)...

You could always do it like a deli restaurant punch-card: Buy 10 stands and get your 11th stand free.

Post by: thor777 on December 02, 2006, 04:14:13 PM
actually, if this is a one time deal, I'd prolly take 10+...... :roll:

Post by: fulcy on December 02, 2006, 08:27:42 PM
It all depends on how popular they are - might be something I try to keep in stock...

Update on my status:

Add four to my already-stated three. I might even be able to pay with my friend's ATM card so the cash-payment issue is no longer valid. But man, these bases are awesome. I'm stoked.

Post by: fulcy on December 05, 2006, 05:25:10 AM
Woo!  Alright, the order has been placed - will be getting in a case of these guys sometime this week!  Slight miscalculation on my part though - shipping was ALOT more than I expected, so the price is going to be a little higher than I expected - an extra $1 should be the most it increases (so instead of $5.75, they'll be $6.75).  I should be able to get these up on the website by the weekend (though something has come up that may prevent that).  I'll also work something out for those who want to buy ALOT of these guys - maybe buy 5 or 6, and get one free - something along those lines.  Will finalize all of this later this week.  Over and out.

I just got my 4 action bases from Fulcy who dropped them off at my place. (while picking up a few things) They're very nice! Bigger than I thought they'd be. The octagon without the square protrusion is 5.5" wide. For some reason I was picturing them to be more like 3-4" wide. They're still awesome though! I'll set one up later and take some pics.

I snapped one up quick and posed my MG Strike on it. Why the strike? Because the base that came with it takes up too much room. I'll be using this one from now on!

The base is rather nice. Many pegs for various heights and positions of the stand. Both support rods for the base are height adjustable. It even comes with a name-plate to stick in one of the holes and a padded sticker to protect your crotch paint.

I'm starting to think that 4 won't be enough! :lol:

Nice! Can't wait to get my 3, Flucy just let me know when to send the funds.

I was watching this on eBay:

click here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=005&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3APIC&viewitem=&item=150065997774&rd=1&rd=1)
MOD EDIT: EXCESSIVELY LONG LINK

It's a recast of the MkII base. The bases you've got are cheaper, and surely higher quality. I'd probably want 2 or 3 depending on whether I feel like modding my Freedom Gundam's base (it's too tall and sticks straight up, yuck!).

Gah - thought I'd get alot more done this weekend than I did - but that's how it always is, isn't it.  I am going to try and get them up on my website today, but it'll more than likely still be a couple days away...

Alright people, the stands are in!  I only have one case of them, so it's first come, first served.  Also, as a special to FichtenFoo forum members, if you buy 7, you'll receive a 8th stand free!  Now, for the fine print - you have to be a current active member of these forums, with at least 10 posts at the time of this message.  Place your order like you would normally do through my website, and then PM me letting me know the email address your order was placed under, and how many stands you ordered, and I'll throw in the extra stand.  Thanks guys!

I threw my other 3 bases together today. I ended up replacing the bases of my Cloud09 and my Hazel [Stutzer] with them as they look much nicer. I'll have to get some more of these soon as they're woring out really great for posing kits and saving shelf space!

Post by: fulcy on January 08, 2007, 02:56:35 AM
If they are still listed on my website, then yes, there are some left...

And just a quick note - it's been taking me a little while to get orders shipped recently - way too many, and not enough time - I hope to catch up with them all this week.  Sorry for the delay!
