  1. Looks like Sci-Fi 03 is/was scheduled for another run in late April. You can pre-order now directly from FEXT for $49.90. I got my first one through Big Bad Toy Store for $69.99 + $4 flat rate shipping (they're currently going for $99.99). I suppose it's possible that the price will come back down at BBTS if they get another shipment from FEXT.
  2. I am in disbelief. My first order ever from Nippon-Yasan (placed 01/28/2020) arrived in the mail today...a DX VF-1A Max. Granted, I opted for JP International by Ferry, and there is this whole pandemic going on, so I knew I was in for a long haul, but this is the first time I've every actually received product in exchange for money from NY after several orders.
  3. I ordered 2 and I was offered shipping options around $70 (EMS) and $60 for like a week longer wait time.
  4. I've searched but cannot find...are there recommendations as to which proxy service a US resident might use to score Tamashii Nation exclusives (case in point)?

  6. I've got several orders in with NY (some pre-order, some for stock allegedly on hand). Since January, only one of them has shipped (a DX Max 1A) and it has yet to be received because I opted for the cheapest, slow-boat option when it came to shipping.
  7. New images (to me, anyway) of Sentinel Riobot VR-038L and AFC-01H. https://hobby.dengeki.com/event/810577/ Earlier pics from Summer Wonder Festival courtesy of @jenius - http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=13609
  8. Well, for what it's worth...if they don't re-release Hikaru's VF-1J somewhere down the line, I will be bummed. I was originally collecting back when Yamato was consistently re-releasing better and different scaled versions of all kinds of Valkyries and don't want to go through that again, but I got on the DX train late and so far have only been able to acquire the Max 1A and Hikaru 1S at prices I was willing to pay. That, and the "initial release" label has me holding off on pulling the trigger at current 1J prices (though, I'm not 100% clear on what that phrase is supposed to imply given potential translation issues...also, apparently Bandai is crazy).
  9. Update: seems like the site is back to normal as of the morning of 03/10/2020.
  10. Weird...I've tried several different browsers after clearing cache in each and I'm still getting warnings about the security cert.

  11. Me neither, but based on what I’ve seen here, that’s not surprising. I saw the lack of secure access to their site as a bit of a red flag. I’ve put in several orders (and pre-orders) with NY since late January. Only one of them has shipped and it has not arrived (granted, I picked the slow boat/cheapest shipping option).
  12. Anybody know what’s up with Nippon Yasan? Apparently the security cert for their site expired a few days ago. Not sure if this is a fluke thing, pandemic related, or the next phase of the plan to run off with my pre-order money.
  13. Anyone know what's up with Nippon Yasan? I have some paid pre-orders with them. Just wondering if this is the part where they fold and run with the money. Trying to figure out if I should start pursuing refunds through PayPal. What I mean is, the site has been inaccessible (unless you opt to bypass https) for a couple of days now and their automated response to Facebook Messenger is something along the lines of "we're not here - check the site." It would seem their security certificate expired a few days ago. The site can still be accessed, but I'm reluctant to enter any legit info while security cert is lapsed. Wonder if transitioning from standard to daylight savings had anything to do with it.
  14. There is also this from last November... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUgaeL_FnyQ&
