  1. Fellow Canuck here, I've ordered from Amiami roughly 10 times in the last year, they never declare the full value and haven't paid duties once when shipping via EMS. If I recall correctly, they marked the value of the Sentinel Legioss as 1200 Yen. DHL is a cheaper shipping option with Amiami, but DHL will always nail you for duties plus their service fee. Amiami is now my go to store since NY is such garbage now.
  2. Mandarake shipped on the 24th and departing Japan the next day is not normal? Better than normal?
  3. Am I one of the few that actually liked Batman Forever? Val Kilmer probably wasn't the best choice for Batman but I watched it as a young teenager and thought it was pretty good. Batman and Robin on the other hand... Tigerland is a great Vietnam War movie, great cast besides Colin Farrell, Clifton Collins Jr., Cole Hauser, Michael Shannon, etc...
  4. Looks like EMS is back to normal? Just had a couple of orders from AmiAmi and Mandarake shipped via EMS to Canada leave Japan within a few days, 1 in the case of Mandarake.
  5. Amiami order paid for and shipped, so this is what it feels like to get things shipped on release date...no word on my second copy from NY, anybody get payment request yet?
  6. I still don't get that response, how do they not have it yet but people here are clearly getting there's shipped to them.
  7. I'd like to stop using them, but the problem is, they still have my FREAKING money. As per someone's previous post, NY even stated they're only out to help select individuals, that's great, what about the rest of us that threw 300$ at them expecting a product, yet got nothing, won't even entertain a refund. So yeah, people have the right to complain because as you yourself stated, who ever can deliver gets the business. NY is not delivering and people are upset, make sense to you? How about I sold you something on the MW forums, you paid me 300$, and I held it for 6 months before shipping
  8. I don't get the horseshit that NY is trying to feed here. This is the response I got from the customer service this morning. Date: 2020-05-14 14:59:24 Name: Marine Message: Dear customer, Thank you for your message We apologize if we were unable to send your order upon release of the product. After checked your order with the Delivery Center we regret to inform you we won't be able to ship your ord
  9. I ordered a couple of things from Manda, 1 from Complex, the other from Nayuta, both shipped with EMS. Both were shipped out yesterday, the Complex one went to arrival at outward office of exchange after 3 hours, the other is still in posting/collection. I guess JapanPost must still be working.
  10. I wonder if this is going to impact how expensive this hobby is already. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2020/04/09/japan-ditches-china-in-multi-billion-dollar-coronavirus-shakeout/#22cd1b4d5341
  11. I live in Ontario too and try to avoid Manda and HLJ as much as possible as they always declare the full value on their packages. Amiami and NY (30+ orders) always declare something small and have never been nailed by CBSA when shipping with SAL or EMS.
  12. Hey sorry off topic here but wondering if anybody has had any issues with NY lately? My MP-47 Hound has been sitting in Preparation in Progress since Jan 6th and there’s been lots of similar complaints on their Facebook page recently.
  13. Did you get dinged for duties and taxes for any of the packages?
  14. WTF, NY is selling the VF-1A for 24000 yen now and a lot of us paid the mark up of 27500 yen after PO night...mother effers...
  15. MyKombini finally put it up for sale, 23990. https://mykombini.com/en/macross-robotech/16052-dx-chogokin-vf-1a-valkyrie-maximilian-jenius-custom-macross-bandai-spirits-4573102567222.html?search_query=macross&results=106
  16. @ The Corran Horn Show, but you gotta admit he made for a solid character in the New Jedi Order and everything after that. I, Jedi was also a really good read.
  17. https://heroichollywood.com/rian-johnson-star-wars-trilogy-freedom/ Star Wars is so screwed. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson is ready to hop back into the iconic galaxy far, far away with his own trilogy separate from the Skywalker Saga, and it looks like he has full creative control."
  18. Racist caricatures in The Phantom Menace? I’m guessing you’re talking about the Gungans or maybe the trade federation? I have no idea but I don’t see George Lucas as a racist. You can literally find a form of racism in any movie you watch, if you’re looking hard enough to find it. To be honest, I don’t know how anybody walks into a movie trying to find out all the social injustices that are portrayed in a movie unless it’s something very blatant and intended. Our society is shifting in a way that soon everything will be offensive to one person or another and movies still just plain suck.
  19. Just got email from NY the release date for Yellow was changed to 2019-08-30, yay it's really coming!
  20. They still have them in stock at BBTS for 199.99USD https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/61998
  21. Same here, preparation in progress since the 27th.
  22. Those plus CF VF-1A would be nice, I stopped collecting for a while and missed out on the Yamato 1/60 and 1/48 variants, would love to a couple of DX versions.
  23. I hate PO night...Got to the last step at AmiAmi, HLJ, and NY, all sold out...
