SWS Skyraider – Bomb Loading!

Hi, everyone!

Jane here, hoping that you’re having a great day so far! Did you enjoy reading my last post on SWS No. 3 Skyraider, and the pre-order bonus figures for Set A? I hope so, because I’ve got more for you today!

Last time I showed you the special “Battleship Departure” figure set that you will automatically receive if you pre-order Skyraider Set A, which is our basic set containing one Skyraider kit. This time, I will be showing you a sneak peek of the special set that you will receive if you pre-order Skyraider Set B. Like Set A, Skyraider Set B is a basic pre-order set containing only one Skyraider kit — however, it is slightly more expensive ($11 higher in price, to be exact), and the included bonus items are entirely different from Set A.

To be absolutely clear so as to avoid confusion:
Set A ($141) bonus = “Battleship Departure” set only
Set B ($152) bonus = “Bomb Loading” set only

That said, let me show you what’s included in the “Bomb Loading” set!*

*The “Bomb Loading” set is also included with Skyraider Set C.

"Bomb Loading" pre-order bonus figure set! Includes 3 ordnance crew figures and 1 "AD-6 VA-75 AG500 Bu.No.139802 USS Independence 1962" decal (shown below).

Well, what do you think? I really love the sculpting of this particular set — I think you can really feel the tension and strength in these three men as they bear the weight of the bomb. If you feel the same, I highly encourage you to pre-order Skyraider Set B (or if you want multiple Skyraiders, Set C!) to lock in your “Bomb Loading” set! Zoukei-mura has given the “Bomb Loading” set a retail value of ¥3500 Japanese yen (almost $40 US dollars!) — however, please note that the pre-order bonuses for both the Shinden and the Ta 152 have never been released for separate sale, and we likewise do not expect the Skyraider bonuses to be, either.

Interested? Well, don’t let this opportunity slip — the pre-order deadline for the Skyraider is June 30! Full information on how to pre-order the Skyraider can be found here:

In my final post, I will be introducing the pre-order bonus for Skyraider Set C, so please look forward to it!
