  2. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

  3. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Gone off collecting, yes. Not going through the pre-order madness for this one. Going to be pricey and it's pretty much the same toy as the Advance. If Bandai does a YF-21 though... I might reconsider.

    We don't know yet but mold wise it'll likely be identical save for the addition of a second seat in the cockpit and a change to the way the canopy opens. And maybe some points for the fold booster to mount (were there any on the VF-19Advance?)

    October release for DX YF-19 Full Set Pack Pre-order on 27/4. http://figsoku.net/blog-entry-105817.html
  6. Bandai DX VF-31

    I was certain NY would have suspended my account after I opened a PayPal dispute to get my Kairos refund. To my surprise, it's still open and my DX Arad order is still there waiting to be paid.
  7. Bandai DX VF-31

    I hope people realize that unlike previous delays, NY doesn't have the item in stock at all this time. In the past, the delay was only in getting the order shipped out, not coming into stock.
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    I don't think they know for sure if they can actually get all the stock needed. They always avoided or stopped replying me when I asked if they would be able to fulfill the pre-order. All they were able to confirm was "we didn't receive all our stocks", "we will send your order as soon as possible", "we don't know when we will receive our stocks", "we have no estimate on when we will receive our stocks". Given how the Tamashii webshop operates (which you have kindly shared and explain several times), NY's replies just don't add up. They aren't waiting for stock from a distributor. I really don't see how they plan to get stock in. It seems entirely possible to me that the person manning their dummy webshop accounts didn't do his job or ran off with their stock.

    I escalated my case the moment NY gave a BS reply through their ticket about how my PayPal payment was "too old to be refunded" and store credit was my only option. Good luck with yours. I guess how lenient one is depends on whether you intend to continue doing business with them. In my case, I had no such intention, so going straight for the nuclear option was easy.

    I didn't realize the max quantity was reduced for the 31A. May well have been what tripped up resellers like MK and NY if they thought each dummy webshop account they had could get them 12 pcs but they could only secure half that when they finally went about ordering.
  11. Bandai DX VF-31

    The 31A wasn't sold through Bandai's distributors like general releases. It was only sold through their webshop directly to customers. No amount of negotiating for stock is going to get Bandai let a retailer have stock of a webshop exclusive.
  12. Bandai DX VF-31

    They probably thought they had the upper hand since I still had an Arad DX pre-order in my account. So they played the "no refund, store credit only" card until they realized I was done doing any more business with them. Anyway, I'm just glad it didn't drag on. I wonder how @PsYcHoDyNaMiX 's case went.
  13. Bandai DX VF-31

    NY folded at the first sight of PayPal. Money returned in full back to PayPal, no questions asked.
  14. Bandai DX VF-31

    If you haven't already, make sure to screenshot their ticket replies. Since they can only be accessed through their site, I wouldn't put it past them to make them "disappear" when the time comes when you might need to provide supporting documents to PayPal. Best of luck to both of us.
  15. Bandai DX VF-31

    No offense taken. Meant to put a after "...lost cause" in my reply earlier but forgot to.
  16. Bandai DX VF-31

    The PayPal claim hasn't been resolved. You make it sound like it's a lost cause. Had to open one because they weren't going to refund me but offered store credit only.
  17. Bandai DX VF-31

    None taken. Just that I always knew NY was shady but since I never got burnt previously, I foolishly continued doing business with them. Not anymore now, so I have no use for store credit.
  18. Bandai DX VF-31

    Bandai did not reduce quantities to retailers because this item was not sold to retailers. It was sold directly to customers through their web shop. If Bandai couldn't deliver the item to these customers, it would have been announced either on the webshop or directly to customers, in which case, we would already have had word on it from Japanese collectors. Another shady shop giving crap replies.
  19. Bandai DX VF-31

    No way I'm accepting store credit. I'm done doing business with them. They had the gall to say the PayPal payment is "too old" to be refunded. BS. Fingers crossed that once PayPal steps in, they will return me my money.
