  1. Has there been a survey here to see how many active members have been screwed over by NY? I still have two outstanding orders with them and one isn't even DX-related. I have an HMR VF-4 that they still haven't shipped. The other is for a DX VF-1S and a set of Super/Strike parts.
  2. i wonder if their stock of all Bandai Macross items got affected by their supplier supposedly not being able to fulfill their orders. I'm still waiting on an HMR VF-4 I preordered October last year and was released in February. I submitted a ticket for that order too. After this debacle, I don't see why anyone would ever want to buy from them again. This is beyond ridiculous.
  3. I'm curious about this too. I sent them an inquiry about my order almost 3 weeks ago and never got any kind of response. I'm going to try again and see what happens.
  4. Ok. I meant the VF-1. It seems like this is still an issue with even the Valkyrie releases. I still haven't heard from them about the preorder that I put in in June of last year for the VF-1S (along with one set of Strike parts). From what I can see in my Order HIstory, it looks like they might have the VF-1S but are waiting for the Strike parts to ship them together since that was one order. If they ever respond, I'm going to see if they can just ship the VF-1S and settle for a credit for the parts even though I'd rather not have to deal with them ever again. I even ordered a HMR VF-4 in October of last year and still no response. Is this only a problem with Bandai Macross products? Has this been an issue with other retailers like Amiami?
  5. Are they only screwing over international customers? Can any members in Japan confirm this?
  6. What do you mean by the suggested ticket language? So if I do an inquiry for shipping, I can ask them if they can change the shipping to UPS? So I take it they are claiming they still can't ship by EMS? I bought a VF-1S from a seller on eBay and it was shipped by FedEx. Does NY have a FedEx option?
  7. How long ago did you place your order? I want to do the same but it's been over a year ago that I preordered a VF-1S and Super/Strike part set.
  8. Ugh! Just came back on to see how this is going. I sent them an inquiry a few days ago but no response. I caved in and bought another VF-1S from eBay since I don't think I will ever get the one I purchased from NY. From the time I purchased it to the day of arrival was only 7 days and this seller is in Japan. NY is full of it.
  9. Ok, thanks for the heads up.
  10. Haven't posted anything in years but I wanted to know if anyone else has had trouble getting their order filled for the DX VF-1S from Nippon-Yasan? I put in a pre-order a year ago for it and the Strike Parts for the November release which came and went. When I contacted them in December, I was told that I had to wait for the reissue of the Strike Parts in April. Well, that came and went and I've heard nothing from them. I even ordered the HMR VF-4G in October and I have not received a shipping notification on that either. I sent them inquiries a couple days ago but they haven't responded. I'm starting to worry that I'm going to get screwed on both these orders.

    What doesn't make sense is they're bringing out the DX version but slowing down on the HMRs. I give them credit for putting out large figures like The Monster, Glaug, and Regults but please finish the Destroids and the SDF/DYRL VF-1 line. I picked up extra Destroids to support the line hoping that they release the last two.

    Is anyone doing custom HMR side covers for Battroid mode? It bugs me that Bandai would include the part to cover the area around the head but not side covers.
  13. I'm looking at this and not liking how the black panels behind the hands that rotate out in fighter mode look so small compared to the YAMATO 1/48, which I think was more anime-accurate. I can't tell but do they even have the detail like YAMATO's? That's one of the issues I have with the V2 1/60 which scales back on some of the molded details of the 1/48. Even the HMRs top the V2 1/60 with more molded detail. I hope this Bandai 1/48 has better detail under the back end in GERWALK mode which is another letdown of the V2 1/60.
