  1. More pre-order shipping/receiving news: I received my TV super parts from Anime Expo (ordered 07/06/20) and MyKombini (ordered 07/08/20) today. Still waiting on news from a third set from Kurama Toys (ordered 07/07/20). They reached out on 12/21 to confirm my shipping address, but no word on when the item would actually ship.
  2. Okini Land has a 1 per customer limit, so I scored a VF-1D there and another through Luna Park. Fingers crossed.
  3. Same. Hoping other opportunities open up. When Kakizaki came out, things went very smoothly for me. Fingers crossed. I was on board for a VF-1D from the start, and getting a fan racer is gravy...I had stopped chasing Yamato Macross toys by the time they released their version.
  4. Could the placement of red dot on the HMMP-02 be another variance between SDFM and DYRL? After all, we don't see strike cannons in SDFM. This is an easy enough thing for me to hand-wave, personally. Perhaps the (fictional) manufacturers started early production runs differentiating the sensor/light placement as left or right, then realized the interchangeability of the store made it pointless to do so, resulting in the decision to produce all further versions with the sensor/light positioned in the same place in the name of efficiency. Ergo, you have fewer in inventory with the sensor
  5. Not that I'm aware of. But it seems like free money (for Bandai) to me given the existence of the Hikaru 1S.
  6. Also highly plausible. Personally, I would welcome a third SSP release...on its own or packaged with a DYRL VF-1. The only copy I've been able to score was via a certain seller who shall not be named, and that has yet to ship. You know...they gave us a blue 013 skull in the first set. I wonder if the red 011 would be included in a bundle with Hikaru's 1A and SSP or a subsequent, slightly revised SSP stand-alone release. We may still need a blue 001 for Max's 1S (though the 1A seems much more likely in the next wave).
  7. Very well...back to speculation about what's next then? The release pattern so far has been: 2 TV VF-1s and an accessory (missiles); DEC 2018 - SEP 2019 2 movie VF-1s and and an accessory (SSPs); DEC 2019 - AUG 2020 2 TV VF-1s and an accessory (TV super parts); NOV 2020 - SUMMER 2021 Hikaru has featured in every wave. With all of that in mind, plus some teaser images we've likely all seen by now (and assuming the line continues as it has gone for the past couple of years), I'm thinking for Wave 4 (late 2021 - 2022) we'll see: DYRL 1A Hikaru GBP-1
  8. Nin-Nin-Game is 2 for 2. Just got my two Bandai DX Roy VF-1Ss in the mail today.
  9. Chalk it up to Christmas Miracles? I have an HMR Elintseeker that I ordered in FEB 2020 that just shipped from NY. Of course, I still have 3 other orders with no movement, also ordered in FEB-MAR of this year. Apologies for shifting this discussion to NY again though...the subject at hand is DX VF-1s.
  10. Do what you feel is right, Rick...my advice is to find somewhere else. I had 3 separate orders of DYRL SSPs. Two were canceled on their end and I was compensated with store credit (I went to my credit card to dispute the charges). The one order of SSPs they were willing to send has been sitting in a "Preparation in Progress" status since 09/11/2020 (shipping JP Ferry)…release date was 04/30/2020.
  11. No telling, but I'd steer clear of Nippon-Yasan. Not sure what your experience with them may have been in the past, but they've been dropping the ball big time for the majority of this year. More on that here:
  12. Sounds like a cookie-cutter response. They told me the same two weeks ago. But if it makes you feel any better, I just heard that my order from NNG shipped from Osaka yesterday. They seem to be moving out stock in phases.
  13. Just noted that my two Roys from Nin-Nin-Game are marked as shipped (more accurately, the FedEx shipping label has been created).
  14. I ordered two from NNG on the night or pre-order. I don't recall private warehouse being an option, but then again, this was in the heat of pre-order night, so I might have missed that. I selected FedEx/DHL shipping from the outset. Since I couldn't find Roy's VF-1S available anywhere else that night, I ordered two from NNG at around $225 each. I've been assured by NNG that shipping should happen this week. As of yet, my status on the order is still "pre-order confirmed" (i.e. no new movement since they were ordered). That said, I've ordered one other time with NNG and didn't reall
  15. Yep. I ordered two at around $225 and I'm still waiting. They estimate they will ship sometime this week. So, either the late stock they're referring to is intended for something other than their initial batch of shipments to customers, or something else is at play.
