The straps themselves are super adorable! I expected them to come random but it actually came with the whole set!
The shipping time wasn't the worst, and the actual packaging was very nice, no damage at all!

Some of the other models in this series have stickers for the headlights and whatnot, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The level of detail on the body shell is comparable to Tamiya's larger models or something from the American manufacturers.

I assembled it (minus the stickers, I'm going to use the shell to build a slot car) in about ten minutes during a break at school, and let it loose on one of the lawns. This thing is a little torque monster! The lawn was half dead, dried out and patchy. The bumps the Land Cruiser climbed would probably be a couple feet tall in scale, and it handled them like they were nothing. Like I said, I'm going to be using the shell to build a slot car, but I'm keeping this chassis! I've got an old New Beetle shell that might fit it.

Speaking of slot cars, if you were thinking of doing the same as me, the good news is that it's pretty close to perfect 1/32 scale. The length and width are within 2% of where they should be. I couldn't calculate the height, since the only figures I could find for the real J70's height reflected the truck with stock wheels, tires, and suspension, and the wheels and tires on this model are clearly not supposed to be stock. I'd go out and measure a real J70's body to check, but this version of the Land Cruiser was never sold in the USA. I'd say that it's probably about where it should be, though, there'd be no reason to fudge it... unlike the wheelbase. The wheelbase is 78 MM, while the J70's actual wheelbase of 2310 MM would be just over 72 MM in 1/32 scale. It's about 7.5% larger than it should be. I don't really blame Tamiya for this, because the models in this motorized series probably share a common chassis, and it had to be stretched to fit. Hey it could be worse: Aoshima's motorized "Initial D" kits are also supposed to be 1/32, but the dimensions are so far off that it's more like 1/30. It's also possible that the 1:1 Land Cruier had a slightly longer wheelbase than a stock J70, since this is supposed to be one that ran Paris-Dakar.

I only have a few minor complaints.

This is supposed to be a snap-together kit, but the windshield/windows piece doesn't stay in place very well. Not really a deal-breaker, but keep in mind that you may have to use glue. I found an extra part that I thought was supposed to be pressed onto the mounting tab to lock the windows in place, but I ended up breaking the tab. Fortunately, the shell wasn't damaged, but don't repeat my mistake.

It also would have been nice if it came with a second bumper. It has tabs to mount the bumper on either the front or the back, but only one bumper.

The grey sprue (the same one that the bumper, wheels, spare axle brackets,and power switch are moldeld on) has an extra part that appears to be a (non functioning) spare tire. It's only mentioned in the instructions as "F6 - Not used", and there isn't anywhere to mount it on the shell. It's also small: way too small compared to the wheels and tires that come with the kit, and probably too small if the wheels and tires were the proper scale. A nice little extra, I guess, but there seems to be a gap in information.

All in all, a great little model, especially for the price.

The speakers kind of suck, but I wasn't really expecting much with a novelty item like this, especially not when good headphones of this type generally go for at least twice as much. They're sturdy, at least, no other complaints so far. I'll probably transplant better speakers into them later.

This charm is so much prettier in person. It's pretty large too, so be prepared for that. It will make a great addition to my ita bag

The details in the set are amazing. It's very versatile how this can be set up and have a totally different look each time.

This is a good figure. The stand allows for lots of great action poses. Unfortunately my figure came with a duplicate squinting pair of eyes instead of different expressions. The hands for the guns are the same hands used to hold the swords. It's difficult to put the gun in the hand / take it out, but the finger is slightly flexible. The shoulders are ugly, but that's allows for more poseability. If you like the character and don't mind revoltech joints, you should enjoy this figure.

Cute figure. Her legs are very flexible, her torso is not. She comes with a stand, alternate face, and extra hands. Her skin is a rubbery material and looks a little lump under some light. She's 1/7 scale, so she is larger than all my 1/6 scale figures. Her left arm popped off a few times while trying o pose her, but it popped back on. Overall a nice figure.

I bought her along with the Miki ver. And both figures came in great condition! I was surprised on how fast the shipping was and how secure the package was. I would definitely buy from them again if given the chance!
