Bandai DX YF-29 Isamu Coloring


Recommended Posts

The Tamashii website said the 16th and NY wanted me to pay for mine before today. Since then I haven't seen any sort of shipping. I was wondering if anybody else who pre-ordered had received word.

I checked status of them on NY and their page says estimated release date of 5/31/214. I am guessing that's the date they will get them in stock? If that's the case I'll hopefully have them when I get back from vacation.

You can send it to my house Saburo :)

HA! Thanks for the offer, but more than likely it will be lost in the room of Macross stuff never to be found again. :lol:

NY is usually pretty good about asking for payment on preorder stuff 2 weeks prior (or something to that effect). I had a good suspicion that these were going to be shipping out this week, and sure enough, I just happened to check here for info, and they're out. I'm sure the shipping notices will be out quite soon enough.

Hopefully since these were made to order, NY won't get screwed by Bandai again with shipments like they did for the Ozma 29.

They didn't get screwed by bandai, they got screwed by their supplier. And by supplier I mean the local brick and mortar shop they usually scalp from.

Dang, tell us how you really feel - LOL.

Preparation in Progress email just came in from N-Y regarding the Isamu 29 Super Parts.

I got my preparation e-mail from NY for the Isamu 29 Super Parts. This time just to see I paid almost down to the last few hours. I notice when I pay right away I seem to be near the back of the line.

I got my shipping notice from NY. I was starting to get worried since I didn't get the preparation notice. :D

Same here, I first thought it was a shipping notice for something else... then was mildly disappointed it was the Isamu super parts. :)

I just got my shipping notice too

Nice! Now I don't have ship it to your house. LOL

Weird, all I got was the preparation e-mail earlier lol.

I didn't get a preparation email, just a shipping notice.

Got shipping notice overnight as well :) went with SAL as well since its a small set and these minimal super parts set are not really a priority... Now the tornado parts, im EMSing those bitches!! :D

It's amazing you guys are getting your items shipped so soon. I paid for mine in February and that was probably my mistake for thinking NY's shipping priorities made any sense.

If it makes you feel any better "Shipping Info. Sent to Fed Ex" really isn't shipped at all at this point.

No, there really doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. Although someone mentioned that it could be in terms of shipping type (EMS vs. FedEx vs. SAL) but not sure if that was proven or not.

I will say that as much as I knock N-Y, deservedly so, the one time I placed an order with them for in-stock merchandise (Gundam Metal Build, RVF Super Parts and something else) the order shipped the next day which is pretty good in my book. Too bad that there is always some other nonsense going on.

I floated the idea of different shipping methods being given various weights but that doesn't appear to be the case. Though, I haven't heard of many people shipping via Fed Ex that have been told to wait. Only EMS and SAL, so perhaps it does go All Fed Ex<-whatever EMS they can fit in<-everybody who drew the short stick and SAL because they were prepared to wait anyway.

Ah, sorry I didn't give you credit. It's a good theory but that still sucks for those that pay first, or even way ahead of time to have to either wait, or read about how everyone else is getting their stuffed shipped.

The way I look at it, unless you have rock solid insider information regarding the Yen exchange rate being less favorable months in the future, there is zero reason to pay up-front for preorders with N-Y. I paid for my YF-29 Isamu Super Parts less than 2 days before the payment deadline and they shipped my order, with SAL as the shipping method, promptly.
