Arcadia 1/60 Perfect Transformation VF-0D for 2015

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the website still says December 31.  NY used to send out the payment requests two weeks in advance.  I'm surprised they want the money a full month early.  That's a huge hurt for Christmas.

I sent them a message asking why they want payment so far in advance this time.

They probably need the cash flow to buy all of the VF-1S's they need to fill orders.:unknw:

On the plus side the Dollar is stronger against the Yen than when I pre-ordered.  The price dropped $7 since I first calculated it.

What do you guys think about the UPS express saver shipping method ???? It’s reliable?

I think its too expensive.  It also depends on if your local postal service is reliable or not.

NY WAY overcharges on their shipping.  Especially UPS.  I tolerate it because USPS sucks around my house.  If you don't have that problem I do not recommend UPS.  NY charges at least double what it should actually cost.  And they'll drag their asses actually shipping the item.

NY said if I don't pay for my PO they can cancel all of my payed PO and lock my account. Anyone else get this email? Can they cancel POs that have already been paid?

That’s their normal invoice email , so everyone who have yet pay for their preorder will receive one .

Please understand that all your pre-orders can be cancelled and your account closed if you don't pay this pre-order.
 

The key word here is CAN ,  they did not use the word WILL .  so that means it’s up to them to decide base on your shopping history with them .  Some people can email to request to cancel their preorders without issue .,   Some just try to change their shipping address but was given the reply of Nope , you already paid .   But yet some were able to do those address changes without issues .  So I would say it’s case by case .  

 

some sites treats Failing to make payment very harshly.  Hlj is one of them ,  we have member here that missed their payment request, and hlj canceled all their preorder and suspended their account .

With NY, always choose to pay in yen. In USD they wanted $497. After my 3.5% discount I paid $432. The yen vs dollar savings was like $50 USD.

Looking forward to seeing the actual product from those who ordered. Am really interested to see how the official weathering compares to my commission job.

Paid for my preorder at NY. And with that my preorders at NY are done. First time since i started shopping there (2010) that i don't have a preorder. There's usually a stack of 5-10 for the following year. Strange.

It's interesting. I haven't done the math but it seems Macross releases have slowed down for 2020. Every year at this time i usually have at least one item preordered per month up to June. I do have 1 preorder at amiami and 2 at hobby search with one being a duplicate preorder. Not complaining though my wallet could use a break and i still haven't opened stuff i bought back in Aug/Sept.

Of course they had to wait til the month of release to tell us .   A 3 month delay.  
well I hope they use these 3 month for better QC.

I'd rather have it late than have another exploding leg or SV-51 mismatched foot issue.

I guess this means the only thing my proxy shipping is waiting on now is the strike parts.

That's a bummer but not entirely unexpected. Hopefully the extra time will mean better QC.

No. They were asking for payment early because they have to buy more DX VF-1S and super/strike packs on the secondary market to fulfill all the orders they received.

That wouldn't make sense as the price they charge (with buy up front) still exceeds what they could get stock for locally. Just the same, they're giving off every indication of a business that's trying to overcome a liquidity crisis.
