  1. As far as I can tell, that's only if you order off Mercari. Still a great deal if you can find what you're looking for there at a price comparable to YJA.
  2. Amiami has pre-orders still up for ~$226. After shipping it'll be right around BBTS price, but no tax.
  3. Yeah, there were a lot to choose from on Buyee, I went looking for one where the shipping cost was pretty much spelled out. A lot of the listing (with the lowest buyout prices) seemed kinda "off" to me. For instance, I found 3-4 different sellers that had the exact same sell numbers, and many other listings didn't specify shipping cost or shipping method (so I could determine cost range myself). Since I don't read Japanese and Google translate is iffy, I just assume these to be red flags, just to be safe. I know Buyee says I'm covered if they never get the package, but I'd rather not deal with all that just to save a few hundred Yen. As for Play-Asia, I'm glad to hear things seem to be working out for you. From what I had read on some other sites, I had heard that they can sometimes be very difficult to get a refund from, so I was just happy to get my money back with no hassle. It was a late pre-order, so I wasn't too surprised when it bombed.
  4. I may be wrong on this, but I think now's the time to grab one off Buyee. If Mandarake is selling an opened version at 23,000JPY, and from Syro's report NY is still trying to source stock, I don't see the price dropping much, if at all. Even if it does, it probably won't be more than a few thousand Yen. Not a big enough swing in price to wait around for, especially since there's just as much chance that the price could go up from here. If I already had one, and this was my extra, then waiting may be the better option - but I gotta have my 1S! All that said, damn Play-Asia for cancelling my pre-order!
  5. I noticed that also. Fingers crossed!
  6. Yeah, I've been keeping an eye on Manda to see how they're going to price it. I'm not betting on a re-release, so I'm expecting to pay some amount of markup. I just don't want to get bit on the rear like I did with Max where I paid 27500 from NY, now they're everywhere for ~22000.
  7. Soliciting educated guesses... Looks like the cheapest VF-1S purchase option is currently ~25000JPY off YJA. Do you think it will drop over the next week or so like Max's did,, or are we just going up from here? I'm not sure if Max dropped due to popularity of the pilot/paint scheme, or if there were enough to go around that the market couldn't sustain the higher price point.
  8. I think you're looking at the arrival date. My amazon.jp order shows a release date of 11/30, arrival 12/3-12/6.
  9. No, not yet. I'm just waiting it out though, as it's my understanding that to be listed as "fulfilled by Amazon", the stock had to be in had at a distribution center. At least, that's what Amazon's website says.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    My radome was a big floppy mess. I got pretty close to a clean look, but only from the right angle. If I touch it, it pops out out place again. I kinda wish they would have made the radome not collapsible. Maybe just a solid open version and a collapsed version that you could switch out.
  11. I think I'll be happy with this line if I can get these first three... you get each head variant, you can put each in a different mode, and, with the strike parts, you can have the iconic DYRL pose of Hikaru's 1S before he unloads on Badolza (sp?) .
  12. The TV version wouldn't have the strike cannon, would have the UN Spacy Kite symbol instead of the skull, and would be a few shades lighter and a little more grey than the Movie versions. Someone chime in if I'm missing something.
  13. Yeah, all of the highly reliable sites were tapped out on PO night. I'm just hoping Play-Asia and these other less reputable sites will be able to come through for those of us who couldn't snag one at the opening bell. Fingers crossed!
  14. Any guesses which VF they'll release next? I'm guessing a Max or Milia -1J, since they don't seem to be following any particular order. I think they're trying to get us hooked on the different teams with the hope that if you buy 1, you'll want to complete the set.
