See my previous post on this subject - V Gundam kits haven't been reissued
for about 5 years. The fact that HLJ has it in their online catalog does
not mean they have it in stock, or they can even restock it to fill your
order. I've had several orders being held back for months because some kits
were "backordered" for God knows how long. If you only order newer kits from
HLJ then you probably won't experience this, but I've had a standing order
for about 2 years by now and I still haven't got it. They used to be pretty
good at updating their catalog with the skull and crossbone logo to mark
items that are no longer available, but I guess they haven't done an update
for a while.

BTW, with the current exchange rate of approximately 105 yen to a dollar
and slap on UPS shipping charged by HLJ, don't try to tell me I am ripping
people off with a $8.00 opening bid.
