    Those t-shirts are amazing! Where did you get those!?
  2. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Yeah you're right, man. Should have been more patient. Definitely gonna be looking out for it on Friday. I just can't say no to a YF-19 like that...
  3. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Well that'd normally be ok but even the MB Strike has a YouTube clip announcement- the YF-19 has got nothing. Which makes me a little suspicious/surprised... Normally the Tamashii website would have something hinted by now...
  4. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Not that I won't be looking like all of you but doesn't anyone find it weird that there's no pictures or solid information from Bandai itself for this one? Almost feel that the YF-19 is quietly being swept under the rug on this one with no real promotion or fanfare. At least the MB Strike has a few things about but pretty much nothing for the YF-19. At 28,000 speculated, surely that's something to advertise?
  5. Pacific Rim Uprising

    Slaginpit so salty. Sad to think that Hollywood that likes to globalise their brand can't be allowed to cater for their broader audience? A bit xenophobic and hypocritical when they're so happy to take their money... They might be doing badly in the States but I think it's done pretty well overall- $230+ million in a bit over 2 weeks. Not everyone's cup of tea granted but I don't think it's going to be a complete flop- probably going to make their money back with a bit of profit on the side. May have a sequel but I don't think that's as likely...
  6. Bandai DX VF-31

    Don't quite understand the way they ship. Single order, paid and ordered on the 6/10/2017 from Australia and still haven't heard a thing. No prep or anything.
  7. Aren't you comparing a series to OVA's? Hardly a fair comparison if that's the case... Doesn't look too different from other anime styles on show right now.
  8. Sure the Japanese market will always be the biggest but I'm quietly confident that the combined markets outside of Japan (especially South East Asia) when it comes to merchandising should be a decent chunk of change. I'd argue they're missing a lot- that's not even including potential growth due to opening up their market to others.

    Well to update people on my situation, turns out it never left Japan and they refunded me when I escalated. They didn't really help my situation till I pushed and emailed strongly but they didn't cause me any grief on top of this either regarding refusal to refund or to attempt help. Take from it what you will.

    Look at it, it never left Japan. It looks like it never arrived in Australia to be scanned first. I know the Australian Post service is normally listed if it touches down in Australia before it is accepted or rejected and sent back.

    Seeing as I'm from Australia and that it's from Japan to Australia, there shouldn't be a reason for it to go via USPS. It's frustrating that there isn't any help available apart from their Japan one provided- of which it hasn't left their shores during the whole time. They don't respond to you properly via e-mails at all. Unless you threaten to escalate and dispute using Paypal, you don't really get a real reply. Even the replies with Paypal disputes are curt and not consistent- claims that they'll reply are never adhered to unless YOU send the e-mail saying their self imposed deadline has passed and you will contact Paypal. They're a horrible shop that should be avoided at all costs. I'm going to leave a negative review on their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Bandai-Japan-1590223341196162/reviews/ I encourage you to do the same if you feel their service is unsatisfactory.

    The tracking number shows that they started initial shipping over a week after the first e-mail on the 4th of December. The tracking number stated the process didn't start till the 12th. I'm going to see what happens but it's way too long for something that was supposed to come before Christmas. I've ordered products in Japan later than that with similar shipping and they've arrived. Feels sloppy/lazy from their end- don't like being lied to. For all I know it could be a dodgy tracking number in the hopes that my Dispute period expires and I'm out of luck no matter what I do.

    I wouldn't have posted this or escalated with Paypal if they just responded properly to my e-mail. If you've told me it's shipped on the 4th of December and it's now New Years Eve, that's a long time between drinks without telling me the situation. When I e-mailed about it I didn't get anything more than a generic response that it'd take 10 business days (which has been exceeded) and a tracking number that doesn't match the shipping date e-mailed and still hasn't left Tokyo for over 2 weeks from the 15th despite the fact it was supposedly shipped on the 4th? That's really fishy to me when you don't tell me what's going on despite my e-mail inquiry. I just want the truth if there's a delay and not be jerked around. If they told me they made a mistake and it'll take longer than planned, that's not a problem. But to insist it's been shipped nearly a month ago when the tracking number doesn't correlate then they're not doing a great job at all.

    Just for those that are thinking of ordering from them here's my story: Ordered a Hi-Metal VF-2SS from them and received an e-mail on the 4 December saying that it's been shipped. On the 15th of December I e-mailed them about the situation asking for an update. All they did was e-mail me the same tracking number they gave me eariler. Over 2 weeks since then I check AGAIN the tracking number- it hasn't left Tokyo for over 2 weeks. E-mailed them last week about it but they never responded. I've opened a Paypal dispute with them. Hoping for a positive outcome but I don't recommend them.
