Me too!

 

Anyone have a link to the Tamashii VR event or do I need some kind of VPN to beat the region locks?

I had the Godaikin version of this as a kid, or possibly a good looking knock-off version. At that time I only knew of it as a robot toy and not the Gordian Warrior anime series since I was just a child in the USA.

I will probably try to get this when it comes out. I liked that original Godaikin version a lot.

Unfortunately I have to pass on this. I've had plenty of time to think after I missed the initial PO, and I've decided to put the money for this into insurance. Blame this as a casualty of Covid-19.

 

Come December, someone on this forum is guaranteed to be green with envy...

DX SoC VOLTES V was featured in this almost 6hr long Super Robot Taisen presentation. Timestamp at 1:10:46.

 

As much as I appreciate the throwback respect on the old Volt-In-Box, I somehow like the box presentation of the Combattler V. But hey, it's my first combining Voltes V, I'll take it as is. :wub:

It’s the only gift I’m going to open for Christmas. Wait. For New Year’s since it will be released past Christmas. Hehehe. :lol:

I'm stoked for Voltes as well.  I never had the original chogokin, and I always coveted it.  This new one is a chonky boi-gotta love it.

I'm super stoked as well. I got mine through BBTS though so I'm expecting to wait until March.:(

Did anyone pre-order the Voltes V from AmiAmi? I did but i haven't received a request payment email yet...it's weird, since that they tend to ask for payment few days before the release date. I know they are a very reliable store so i am not that worried but, you know, just asking...

Member at TFW2005 posted their HLJ shipping quote

Over $340 to ship to the USA

can not check to confirm because HLJ site will not let you add it in cart.

Owch.  My suggestion would be to put it in the private warehouse for as long as possible and hope that other shipping methods will be available soon.

That;s excessive. I've had boxes that are the DHL max box size (roughly 26x20x20 shipped for $325 through Tenso......which is NOT budget pricing.

I'm going to have to wait a couple of months. But man, oh man am I glad I went with BBTS!

Same here. That’s why I’m so excited for this one. As in, super excited. :yahoo:

Does AmazonJP ask for additional shipping cost? I’m shocked to see the HLJ pricing quote so I’m worried that AmazonJP might ask for additional. :unsure:

I checked my order status and it says delivery between Dec 29 - Jan 1.

amazon.jp have never asked for additional shipping cost. :D.  only the added USA sales tax.

Out of curiosity. Where can I see the sales tax if I was charged? Within the AmazonJP order page or afterward in the credit card used for the purchase?

Thanks.

When they charged your card you will noticed the difference.

Once they shipped it, it will also be in your orders,  go to invoice  , click on it to see Invoice1.   That one will show the USA sales tax

I’m watching this now. ;)
