    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    A web exclusive and it's sold out already? Not sure how this works... It's really strange how it's getting harder and harder to get Web Exclusives. Thought they were supposed to be easier to get?

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    So is the Gunbarrel an exclusive or a standard preorder? Hoping for the former- don't think I'll be able to get into the race for this one

    Have any of you quit collecting?

    It's not a Metal Build or Macross 1/60 is it? Don't remember any that's supposed to be out today.

    What's going to go on pre-order tonight?

    Bandai DX VF-31

    For a preorder that people have said they didn't want, it certainly went quick.

    Those t-shirts are amazing! Where did you get those!?

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

    Is Kurama Shop Hobbysite/bandaionline.com legit?

    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.

    Is Kurama Shop Hobbysite/bandaionline.com legit?

    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.
