How much do you guys estimate these will be going for on the secondary market? Looks like previous release non PF units are going for $700-800.

Hopefully for as close to retail as possible, that way the folks that buy up stock just for the purpose of selling down the line at an insane profit margin, can't.

Not sure, but you can get a non PF 0D at approx 48k yen sans shipping from JP.

Doubt scalping is a concern for such an item. It's a web exclusive and has a high price point, so the people who want and can afford it will be a smaller pool than for a cheaper Bandai DX item. Also, Macross Zero is nearly 20 years old and didn't exactly set the world on fire when it was new. :fool:

Fair, it'll also depend on the quality of this particular 0D when it's released. If it turns out to be a dud that'll be a whole other discussion re: resell value.

Ah if you are referring to new and unopened, that's a different range. MISB discussions can be open ended, so wont get into that too much.  

But just to say am not too particular abt used, as the japanese do take care of their belongings. 
With some dilligence browsing the auction sites, used stuff are as good as new.

Well, the original was a dud and it still commanded a pretty penny. Anyways, I'll be happy to get one of these. If I'm lucky, two but I really don't need an extra.

All this price discussion got me checking the interwebs...

I wonder how far this https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/d384426333 would go, seeing that a new PF version is 45k...
The bidding current price is back at the original nonPF retail prices at the moment...

My guess is $475.

hmm at $475 approximates to 50k yen for a used, it would be better going for a brand new PF version at 45k yen. 

You never know tho.

Woah. I wasn’t expecting NY to put up a pre-order. I checked the site a few times before I posted too. HaHa. More options are good. :good:

Damn, i know it would be expensive but at this price and the tax, oh man. But the image that this piece price would be rising to be unreachable after it releases make it unbearable.

I'm converting my discount point at NY right now, let see how much it can help.

Don’t know if I’d say “Going for.” People are ASKING for these insane prices but not really selling. BIG distinction there.

After thinking back and forth , finally went ahead and preordered 2 from N-Y.  Used my Summon discount power of 4%.   B))

Since it's releasing in December, had to use EMS since that is the time of the year with the most shipping issues.   

Total shipped for 2 ended up at 94196 yen.  

Also, in case some haven't noticed yet, the price on N-Y is ONLY 43800 yen each.  ^_^  :ph34r:

Wow, that works out to only $615 Aussie dollars.  I've never seen the AUD so weak against the JPY.  Unbelievable....

As much as I love this design, I'm not double-dipping ($400+!!) until it is released and the colors are confirmed. Fool me once, shame on Arcadia; fool me twice...

...you cant, you cant be fooled again!

btw what colors are you expecting? From even the promo pics on arcadia's online store, its most likely going to be the same deep blue color but this time panel lined and weathered.
