I think i will hold off on getting this until i have the figure in hand first, the head sculpt looks really off. Retail for this in HK is much more reasonable, but keep in mind it doesn't factor in the shipping on this piece. Given the size and potential weight i wouldn't be shocked if the hulk buster ends up somewhere close to 580 shipped back to the states from angolz.
Has anyone ordered from toysbuddy before, and if so do you know how their pre-order system works? I could not find anything that would tell me much about their pre-order policy, so I am assuming you will need to pay up front. That's about the only thing holding me back from ordering through them at this point. I refuse to pay for pre-orders upfront now given my run in with miracle's VV. I don't mind a smaller deposit to garner a hold on the order but never full price again.

^ I got my King of Beast Golion from Toysbuddyhk early this year. You have to pay in advance (I didn't realize it at the time because they had the item listed as "in-stock". There was a period of about 2 weeks before the item was finally in-stock and they made the shipment. Their shipping was quick and their packaging was good, but that was my only experience with them.
What I plan to do make an order when it's close to release. For an item with such pricing, I don't believe it's going to sell out quickly, especially if there are other similar products in the market. Fans will be divided to choose the Hulkbuster that fit their need, scale, and budget.
Thanks for the info, and yes very good point. I do think however given the cost and choice the idea of having a diecast hulk buster just seems more inviting than a plastic version. Sorry, don't care how much better it may, if I'm forking over this much money I want it in Diecast if possible. Its not like I plan on buying more hulk busters if I can get the right one the first time around.
What did you think of the quality? Is it on par with other highend collectibles in the market? Do you think there would be future issues like paint scratching or fading or joints loosening?
Congrats on your acquisition, BTW!
The quality is consider good and I'm really satisfy with the paint job. There are 2 things which I don't like, they are using spring at the shoulder pad and rubber material underwear. Hot toys is famous with their 'underwear color fading' and I'm not sure whether King Arts will end up with the same issue, only times will tell.

Good to hear that the quality is generally good! I also saw the shoulder springs on one of the youtube reviews, and thought that it could be improved as well. However, at least they didn't botch their early attempts for producing action figure with diecast contents so we should be looking for improvements down the road. The rubber underpants, judging from HT's previous fails are bit alarming though. If I do get a Kingarts MK43 to go with the Hulkbuster, he will spend most of the time inside the armor.

Damn, it was between this or DX Great Mazinger...... So far, looks like this the king of hulkbuster The only con i can tell is the squeeky joints.....otherwise it looks to be an awesome figure. Congrats to bros who got on this.
Unless KA re-release this, I have to go with Comicave version. Comicave preo starts on first half of 2016 at around $300..a high 300 id imagine.
