The MP Optimus EVA is sweet.  I wish I could get it, but it's way too pricey.

did you check the actual item on your rewards account? cause the points where show up with the actual titanfall item not by itself. and did you do in store pickup? if so did you pick it up the same day it came out or was it a couple days later

I pre-ordered in store ($10 down) and picked it up at release.

 

In the future, I'm just going to do like I did with South Park and pre-order online with in-store pick up.

If I haven't got my Titanfall points yet for pre-ordering.  Is it best to call the Best Buy number, or is there a better place to go (ie where someone actually will know about pre-order deals).

No, HG is specifically for 1/144 size, though a handful have boxes as big as an MG box.

Granted, Otakon is the only convention I go to, but the main seller of Gundam models there is Bluefin, who charges more or less the same as their website (though rounded).
I am assuming the $30 kit was for the 1/100 scale? Because even Toys R Us was carrying Wing kits back in the day, and were usually $25-$30 for the 1/100 and about $7-$8 for the 1/144 kits.
More than likely, that $12 kit was on clearence, as Bandai changed their modeling process into the now familiar Master Grade (1/100) and High Grade (1/144). Typical HG kits are $18-$25, with the more elaborate kits costing $35 or so. MG kits usually start around $35 or so and can get has high as $55/$60 depending on how elaborate the kit is and what pack-ins are included. Real Grade kits are almost all $35. Perfect Grade and other such offshoots are typically $145-$200.


Plenty of (non-Limited/Special edition) MG kits are well over $60, and they have HG models that are 1/100 I believe.

I wish I could go to the store and browse models like I could at TRU when Gundam Wing was on TV, as it involved a lot less anticipation lol.
