  1. Sorry to hear that. I hope others will be more careful due to our experience.
  2. Sorry for causing some OT discussion, but maybe other who want to PO future VF-1 DX can benefit from this discussion I hope. This is more straight forward if it is a company that I buy from directly. Since the "sinner" is the seller (ok, maybe he is in hospital for a month, so will wait before I stick him/her with any names, but at this point, I assume he/she is at "fault"), it is not fair to let FromJapan suffer the cost. I do blame myself for not choosing a "better" seller and pay for insurance/protection. But I am also upset and have some questions. Maybe I am spoiled by Ebay and PayPal and expect something similar from Yahoo Japan. I am not sure how much money FromJapan get from just their "Basic Forwarding Plan". But I somehow expect that when things goes wrong, even the basic plan do deserve some support to get help from Yahoo Japan. I know their policy is stated clearly from the onset that the "Basic Plan" will get nothing or no help. It still does not make me feel too happy about their service. And Yahoo Japan might or might not offer buyer protection as good as Ebay. So, will beware in future. @SMS_Skull_Leader I am still deciding what to do. I paid in June, so will have a bit of time before my CC company refuse to help. But my experience with them is not good. This particular CC company is not as good as other (such as Amex). Apart from future convenient of service provided by FromJapan, I also feel that I need to feel "right" causing FromJapan to suffer. Total paid is USD$205, not something I cannot afford to loose, but just feel bad about it even though me being naive is the main reason for this. Given how their service is setup (forcing payment of 700 yen vs 200 yen to have protection) I am reconsidering if they are the best service. As I said before, not sure if basic plan deserve to be treated like this.
  3. Lesson learned the hard way.
  4. It might be possible that the fee paid to HG is only for item shipped to US. There are re-seller of KC product on ebay, and their sales might not be registered as US sales by KC or HG.
  5. Finally have my refund from PayPal for my failed PO from an Ebay seller. My order of 1A from an Yahoo Japan seller via FromJapan is still not delivered. The seller is not responding to message (via FromJapan), so I think this is definitely a fraud too. I am naive and fooled into complacency due to many successful order via Ebay and Yahoo Japan seller of existing items. Will be very careful when doing PO from "non-standard" or verified big name sellers. Hope my lesson is a good reminder to fellow members here. My choices are limited. I could try to dispute this charge on my CC. But I have 6 DX strike pack on order from Baidai via From Japan that will be deliver next year April. So it is not wise to cut tie with FromJapan. I am cheap and only paid for the basic forwarding plan with no protection. That is costing me now. FromJapan just refuse to help with any problem with basic forwarding plan. I kind of disappointed with that. I have over 10K order through them and that means nothing it seems.
  6. Yup, send them a request about 19 days ago, and they try to contact the seller. No response till now, so just request advise from them about what to do. Will see what they can do. I didn't pay the 700yen protection fee. Maybe that will limit what FromJapan can/willing to do to help. Will wait and see.
  7. Sorry I was not being too specific. I should said I paid a seller on Yahoo through FromJapan. So the seller is not responding to message. The problem is, if I complain through my CC, FromJapan will loose the money. They will not be happy about that. So I am now stuck.
  8. My order of DX Max at FromJapan fail to deliver. I think there is no way to recover my money, so beware of the risk.
  9. I have only try to cancel one PO with NY. That was my first ever order with them too. So was quite worry, but I ask politely and they cancel my PO without issue.
  10. Best Mazingers! Capture the spirit of the original very well. But where can I put it if I get one is the big question for me.
  11. There are so many scammer around it is scary. I have an open case with PalPay about another scammer for USD$249. The case is under review till 31st Oct (such a long time) and I hope they will side with me at the end (bitting my finger nail). How much money did PayPal lose to these a year? Must be a very big number.
  12. I suspect as much. So was glad that @Lolicon confirm what primer will be the right one. Ok, will get the white Tamiya surface primer. Amazon have the white and clear version.
  13. The metal looks very glossy, any problem with paint adhesion? Can I just prime with normal Mr. color primer (500?) before the white. Come to think of it, I have mr white primer too, maybe just go straight with that and than semi glass top coat to kill the flat matt of the white primer. Will that works?
  14. This is the seller: https://www.ebay.com/usr/japan-exclusive?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754 PayPal name: 吉川昌克 (japan-exclusive)
  15. Yup, this sucks, I know. Don't let this spoil our b'day. I am not too worry, on release day or near release day, we will have another chance. Worst case it will be more than the $249 we paid the scumbag. But not something that I would be pulling my hair out about. Trying to stay clam and just enjoy the toy. Max is really nice and I look forward to the next one.
