  1. Ordered a gundam kit from NY in January and selected JP. It's been in preparation in progress status since 5/1. I wasn't in any rush to receive it and figured they would just hold it until JP started to ship to the US again. Apparently they created a ticket on their own and are giving me a free UPS upgrade without me having to do anything. That was a nice surprise to see this morning. I definitely wasn't expecting that from them. Ticket message below: Hi ! Thank you very much for your order, unfortunately there seems to be something preventing us from shipping it to you… Do not worry though, we can fix this ! It appears that the shipping method you chose is not available for your country at the time. This year has not been easy for anyone, a lot happened already and we would like to brighten your day, even if just a little. So as a special thank you and with hope of better days to come, we would like to upgrade your order to UPS completely free of charge ! If for some reason you do not want your order to be sent this way, please let me know by replying directly to this ticket within the next 3 days and we won’t do anything. So in short, if you do not reply, you get a free UPS upgrade it’s just that simple I sincerely hope you will enjoy this special offer and that everything is going well for you. Have a great day, and stay safe !
  2. They did the same thing to me with the MB Strike. They don't get their stock until very late so they didn't let me know until months after it had been released. Not the easiest of chores to secure one at a reasonable price at that point. The other thing they do that I don't like is list the release date on their site as the actual release date of the product, not the date they expect to receive the product. Then every month they send out a status update pushing the release date out to the next month. They do this for many months until they finally deliver to you or cancel. My MB Qan[T] they eventually delivered months after the release date. My MB 007SG I cancelled after waiting 5 months with no delivery in sight. When I cancelled they assured me they would be getting it but I wasn't willing to wait anymore. My MB Strike they cancelled 4 months after the release date. I won't even use them as a store of last resort anymore due to all of this. If I have to I'd rather pay a marked up price on YJA or eBay for more peace of mind.
  3. Oh heck Yeah! So is all of that being sold together as one pre-order package? If so, is it already up for pre-order somewhere or is there a date it will be?
  4. I'm not sure what you mean by it not being seated correctly. The peg is inserted all the way in the picture. There is no further space for it to be pushed in and no wiggle room for it to be adjusted. I have tried many times to get it to level. I have removed the parts and put them back together again and again but it still wont stay the way I want it. I'm glad to see that others don't seem to be having the same issues. I'm thinking that one of these parts may have a little extra plastic somewhere. My next step is to put it together without the valk attached and see if it still has the issue. If no issue there then I know that it is most likely an issue with how the part attaches to the backpack. If there is still the issue then it is most likely the pegs. Maybe removing a hairline amount of plastic will do the trick.
  5. Here's a picture of the bowing. The one on the left side of the picture isn't too bad (although it doesn't always stay like that). The one on the right I can't seem to do anything with though. Another thing you can see with that picture that I forgot to mention is that the dish leans a little to the right. Not sure how to take a picture of something being loose. did you want a picture of the areas I was talking about?
  6. Received my VE-1 yesterday (thanks DHL!). It looks fantastic. I was surprised though by some of the fit and looseness. The backpack boosters are ever so slightly bowed out. I've checked the alignment and part placement multiple times but nothing I do seems to keep them in the proper position. The backpack itself slides up and down (battroid)/ forward and back (fighter) too easily and doesn't lock into place. I have to adjust it every time I do something with the valk. The shoulder hinges are loose enough to almost be floppy. The heat shield is looser than any other valk I own and came off of the track a couple of times. The hip bar hinge is also looser than any other valk I own and was pretty floppy during transformation. All in all these are just minor annoyances but they were unexpected when compared to any other Yamacadia I own, especially with this one fresh out of the box. I don't own any of the original Yamato VE-1's so I'm not sure if any of these issues are just carry over from those versions. edit - also forgot to mention the wrist hinges, both the one that flips out and the one on the DYRL hands, are pretty loose. Thankfully this valk doesn't need to hold anything.

    Amazon.jp wouldn't be delayed by golden week would they? I would think they are too big of a machine to put everything on hold for that long of a time but I could certainly be wrong on that.

    MK finally sent me the preparation in progress email. If they were charging me for it on the 16th it sure would have been nice if they sent it out a little sooner. At least there are some nice pictures in here to tide me over.

    Received and paid for my invoice from MK yesterday. Super pumped to be getting this in hand soon.

    Yeah seems odd but that's what they sent me. the release date of your product HI-METAL R VF-4 Lightning III Macross Flash Back 2012 BANDAI SPIRITS has changed. The new release date is : 17-03-2019.

    I received an email from MyKombini that the release date for the VF-4G has been updated to 3/17. I'm really excited for this release. It will be nice to get something new rather than another repaint.
  13. Yes they do, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I think they did a pretty good job with those sculpts. A little better leg articulation, some tighter joints, and non-crumbly plastic is all the upscale would really need.
  14. Thanks for all of the info. It looks like I'll have to wait to see features and price. I'd like to get some 1/6 Guyver figures but I'm hesitant if they only offer I and III. The last thing I want is an incomplete yet expensive set. I'm still waiting for them to finish the Figma lineup but that seems like a lost cause.
  15. Do you have a link to any further information on these? I tried doing a Google search but didn't come up with anything.
