  1. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    I think you will need your "friendly japanese friend" to order it for you due to payment requirements . you will find out what N-Y will charge and what other websites will charge before it will be sold out. Price at Arcadia site is 41904 yen (tax included) yes ,you will need to pay the tax. http://arcadia.ac/products/detail.php?product_id=263

    Nin-nin seems fine for me. They delivered what I ordered. They also reissue me another coupon when the one they gave me was used in error when the credit card did not approved.

    I think Arcadia's pricing structure is starting mess with our minds. When we can look a Valk with extra tampo marking priced at 38000 yen before tax to be considered "cheap" I got so use to their pricing that I was expecting it to be much higher. Oh well, guess I might have to preorder one now.

    If you are from Australia then you should look up the detail tracking from your local Postal service , "Australia post"? maybe try inputting the same tracking number there? or even ask your local postal office to look at their internal system? Many people use the wording "USPS" because they are from the USA, but if you are from another country then obviously you should direct it your local postal service. The japanpost tracking did show that it left JAPAN on the the 15Th. "12/15/2017 06:20 Dispatch from outward office of exchange " This means it left JAPAN. "12/30/2017 14:04Arrival at inward office of exchange " This mean it came back to Japan. This researching is just to find out what really happened to your package between the 15th and the 30th.

    The real best case scenario would be those 20% off HLJ I'm sorry coupons. wink wink. Other stores also offer pre order discount , but just not as much. it's around 20000 yen for the VF-1J Milia with preorder discount. I used examples from the same store to make an easier comparison . But you bet I'll use items more in my favor. Yeah N-Y shipping can SUCK ,, in a bad way too, you will see pointing out extra invoices, etc. but it's possible to get good deals from them too. I used registered sal so my shipping for the Milia was 2740 yen. I can also understand why some don't like to use them too, I stopped using them for an long a while after they mess up my original Yamato SDf-1 , years ago. But then I can also point out that the person you quoted did not mention $100. It was 10000 yen. But you were also right that it isn't 10000 yen over MSRP either... You probably got the best price on those VF-1J along with the SDF-1 premium , you are definitely King on that one Either way this new VF-0S is going to be expensive that is for sure, and unfortunately we can't Cherry pick that one,, well not yet at least.

    you can open a dispute with paypal, that should get their attention. But do not close it no matter what until everything is resolved. no we will this or that because once you close the dispute the case will be closed forever.

    That's also incorrect. The price of the premium VF-1 is 27864 yen if you purchase directly from Arcadia. Anything below that price are exceptions. (preowned or damaged box are considered exceptions) Besides just comparing MSRP, you also have to look at this too : Premiums finish version also does not offer pre order discount , so if you add in the possible discount and the difference of the Premium finish extra cost then you can get pretty close to the 10k difference in price. here's my example: my normal VF-1j Milia with pre order discount is 18,280 yen from Nippon-Yasan. The VF-1J Milia Premiums finish ver is MSRP 27864 yen directly from Arcadia. 27864-18280 = 9584 yen difference. Since I can't pre order items directly from Arcadia I preordered my Premium Finish ver from N-Y for at 28250 yen. so for me 28250 -18280 = 9970 yen difference. What's I'm saying is just paying the Premium finishes MSRP is a close enough 10K yen difference as if you were to get an normal version with preorder discount.
