  1. "Thud"??? It barely made a whimper. At least it didn't quite went to bargain-bin mode at amz-jp direct as quickly as the HM-R VF-4 "Roy" and the various SOC-FAs. I don't think Bandai have had any recent sellout hits outside of the original Metal Build EVAs. I still wonder what the fugazi people see in EVA mechs that is even remotely so desirable. *shrugs* Even the GFFMC Zaku-II could be had at MSRP at amz-jp direct a month or so after release-date. Maybe that's why there seems to be alot of Bandai stuff going twe/pbandai route nowadays.
  2. Not sure about the stands, as them 3-pks were damn frickin' cheap both here and in Japan. As for the HMR VF2SS... The Sylvie-VF2SS did fine in sales and aftermarket value. It still commands almost MSRP pricing in secondary markets, last time I checked. The "Nexx", BIG NOPE! I see it almost constantly way cheap and undervalued as new in most jp-shops. Even (or especially) in amz-jp and manda. More likely the Nexx-VF2SS sales would've been alot better if Bandai had actually put the correct pilot figure for it instead...
  3. I think either or both that listing and/or that pricing by AJ-marketplace scalpers vendors have been there since even before actual the Hikaru-1S release-date. Still high scalper-pricing, regardless if the 10% tokyo-tax gets taken out. Wonder if Bandai will decide to re-release it if the upcoming Roy-1S does not have the "100" shenanigans...
  4. so, Shawn... ...do we get to scream now?
  5. Maybe they'll finally do a full-engine this time to compensate. To contrast with the wtf-half-engine with the current DYRL FPs...
  6. Btw, no Hikaru pilot on the TV-FP set. Bandai will prolly charge another 10k-yen just to add him separately...
  7. Yeah. So just TV Super-FPs as a separate add-on set. No complete Booby-Duck set just yet.
  8. Yeah. Defintely TWE. Your pricing estimates are about right. For the FPs and red-tipped missiles only, tho. Will not even contain the Hikaru pilot. DX Hikaru-1S valk sold separately. With the Hikaru pilot, hopefully. This is Bandai, afterall...
  9. Remains to be seen if Bandai will issue a "new" 1J with the grey-goggles for the GBP like they did with their HMR 1J-GBP. They could continue doing their nickel-n-dime thing and make the GBP armor a more expensive TWE standalone accessory like the missiles and FPs, but to surprisingly include an extra 1J grey-goggle head. Or both. As for the TV Super-FP, possibly the same tactic.: Another 1J with Super FPs. (but that would be copying yamato-toys.) 1S Booby-Duck edition with Hikaru pilot. Standalone TWE Super FPs with extra Hikaru pilot.
  10. Honestly, guys. Try not to oversweat it nor succumbed to the scalpers/scalper-pricing coz you didn't get a po with the Roy-TV. Really think this DX Roy TV-1S will be available aplenty after release-date and at msrp or below, just like the DX Max-1A and the DX VF-31E Chuck.
  11. Like the Yamato-Toys pre-ordering days?
  12. To get an idea of the diffs, just go to http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=8895 and see it. That's fir the classic Yammie/Arcadia 1/60v2 versions, tho, as Bandai has yet to release their TV super-packs for the DX. They'd only released the DYRL super/strike-packs so far.
  13. You should ask for a refund. It might have been like that a few years ago, but not really anymore. Bandai's been capping stuff across almost their entire high-end desirable toys in the last few five or so years now: Metal Build Gundams Metal Build Mazingers Metal Build EVAs GFFMC Gundams SOC GoLion SOC Mazingers DX Chogokin Macross VF-1 As such, even when they do cap stuff, some (or possibly more) of their toys do become shelf-warmers and unwanted stuff, anyway. That said, I think we're all just competing against the scalpers these past few years. Both old scalpers and new scalpers. Both here in the West, and alot more over there in Asia.
  14. oh! oh! scalpers lowered their pricing at AmJ! ¥34,790
  15. Shieet! I still have 4500pts I am still unable to use coz they've gone HobbySearch-mode during po-nights like this...
  16. heh! I was completely shut out everywhere on the Hikaru-1S the last time. Can't remember if AmJ even region-blocked me on it or something. This Roy-1S TV po was alot better. At least, to me.
  17. Just to note: The current 35k-yen pricing at AmJ is scalper 3rd-party/Marketplace. The actual amz-jp direct pricing was 18k-yen. Try to wait a bit and maybe Amz-Jp direct will do a restock at non-scalper pricing...
  18. Don't lose hope. Roy's always a best-seller no matter the scale. It'll prolly show up again at the usual shops in an hour or so. Maybe even at amz-jp again.
  19. wonder how much the shipping rape will be with non-ajp shops...
  20. got one at AJP...
  21. Thread moves fast. Not quite. Think Bandai is just capitalizing on Roy's TV-uniform novelty. The Japanese fans/otakus just lurvs novelties and stuff...
  22. It'll be worse, I reckon, since DYRL is more popular than TV in Japan.
  23. With all the hate N-Y are getting here and elsewhere, I'm surprised some of you are even bothering with it. Well, aside from Slave, of course...
  24. wotafa's review...
  25. hmmm. piggybacking on the previous marked pic... Bandai should fire their photochopper...
