    1/60v2 M&M: Yammie vs Arcadia vs Arcadia-PF by Jenius:

    Yeah. That's a weird marketing description. The only "movie" I know of was the Pailsen Files compilation. The rest are OVAs. Unless they mean compiling the one-ep OVAs (LRS/BB/RoA/AA) with the alt-uni (Irvine/Finder) stuff. Need more clarification. ANN seems to be offline at the moment...

    Currently down now to 36995y po-pricing (about 35k-yen shipped to US) as of this posting. Hopefully it gets lower: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07L324QLS/ btw, amz-jp note on this if you intend to cancel:

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Yo! Think you've been asking both here and at TFW regarding the DX 1J availability. ami's got one up now for you, courtesy of AlexGS: here's the link again for you: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-041234 Either wait for the other japan-shops to open up again, or preorder from ami now if you still want it. No more po-discount, but at least it's at MSRP.

    It's just regular MSRP, I reckon. They just took out their po-discount. It was 16k or so with the po-discount from them, iirc. Not quite the 27k price-gouging that N-Y was doing lately.

    Hi-Metal R

    Not really sure what you're talking about, but I ordered it first at CDJ alongside the Kampfer. Then checked on Amz-jp and found it there. Did some quick weird math and decided I can get the 1D way way faster for about the same amount as CDJ's usual two-week sal-reg. Ditched my CDJ order and re-ordered at amz-jp. Too bad amz-jp doesn't want to ship the Kampfer to me, so I reordered that with Spike on CDJ again. Voila! Took about 5-mins in total. Checked later on ami and it's available there and just shrugged. Then somebody here mentioned Amz-jp lowered their pricing and checked mine to make sure it automatically adjusted. And it did. All stress free stuff. Check the japan-shops early this morning and all my usual shops (ami, cdj, amz-jp) have it still available. What else can I say? It's been the same process for me for all my HMRs, actually. And like I said, HMRs ain't never have the PO-madness from years past when the japan-shops go out of stock at 12:01, then stocks shows up 15/30/60/etc mins later. Sometimes randomly. All including the various cart-jacking and the circle-of-doom/blank-pages/server-crashing shenanigans. Maybe it's just venue-changing as you say. Or just maybe the bandai and the japan-shops really have more than enough stocks to satisfy most orders, and the overseas-fans simply are just over-reacting to be wanting to experience the old PO-madness years...

    Hi-Metal R

    No idea. Don't really think it has anything to do with "mbps", but rather with whatever webscript and cloud/redundancy implementations the japan-shops are using nowadays. I also haven't ordered from hlj since whenever since their offerings are just not competitive nor enticing anymore to me. You'll prolly have much better luck with amz-jp when preordering since their ordering systems are somehow way better managed and stuff than any of the regular japan-shops. They also do have really competitive pricing and very fast shipping. At least, when they're allowed to ship the item outside japan...

    Hi-Metal R

    I honestly never experienced any issue when preordering any of my HMRs. Amiami's have been seriously buggy since they've redesigned their english-site a few months ago, so it doesn't surprise me if some of you guys experienced issues with it last night. It's been buggy and takes multiple times to get thru even when ordering regularly and on non-po times. And they damn fully know about it, too...

    Hi-Metal R

    Yeah. There really wasn't any so-called PO-madness with the HMR line since, I dunno, the Hikaru-1S or so. Even then, it wasn't as mad as the DX Frontier v2-valks. Most of the HMR valks are even better discounted than the PO-pricing on release-day, anyway. They'll even shelfwarm for a couple of weeks and more. Some people here seems to just keep on hyping HMR PO-madness stuff everytime, however, for some whatever reason. The only PO-madness to watch out for nowadays are usually on the Metal Build Gundams (sometimes Metal Build Mazingers, too), if you're into that stuff like the rest of far east asia-based fans (and shops/scalpers) or something, it seems...

    Hi-Metal R

    Supposedly 3-5 days shipping from amz.jp? You haven't ordered yet from them? My amz-jp orders were usually 2-days received from japan release-date. Unless it's a weekend release, of course. Btw, SAL/SAL-Registered shipping from CDJ and other Japan-shops are usually 2-4 weeks. They are subject to USPS' own local delays, tho.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Thought the Yammie VF-19's go loosey-goosey rather quickly. Especially the ankles or something. Guess ymmv. Can't verify since I never like nor bought any of the M7 VF-19's. Yeah. Think Yamato somehow wanted to re-use their VF-19 moulds for the YF-19. Which totally sucks. Their original YF-19 design only needed some superficial stuff like eliminating/redesigning the neck-gullet and stuff. It didn't really need the new ankles and other stuff from their VF-19 mould. Oh, well.

    I anticipate it'll be as solid and stable as the stabilizers on their YF19-DX...

    Who knows? Maybe Bandai will sell such DX-1D Minmay figure totally separately like the upcoming DX-1J missiles...

    Unsurprising, really. Shouldn't really even cost 2000y to add to the SRP just to include them. They did a similar shenanigan with the 4300yen GX-70VS TWE crap, when all they had to do was include the usual tiny Hover Pilder to the regular GX-70 like with all other previous SOC Mazingers...
