Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!


Recommended Posts

Yeah, it went by really fast, I didn't even bother reading if HLJ had a limit. I ordered one, then thought maybe I'll order another one and made a separate order. Wasn't trying to bypass the limit on purpose, just changed my mind and decided to get 2 - could always cancel the extra one if I change my mind later... That's what I like about ordering from HLJ.

If there is a limit, HLJ will cancel the extra order... guess we'll see. Oops!

Closed in one minute!

ROFLMAO!

One minute?!? I'm sure it was less than that. My page scanner pinged that the order was open at 1645JST and pinged almost immediately after that it was closed. The scans were 5 sec apart btw.

i am refreshing mine every 5 seconds. when it registered, I copied the link it, then clicked, then transfer to this tab to paste to here.

when I saw it loaded, prolly another 5 seconds, it was already sold out.

Not necessary. They have frozen peoples account in the past for breaking their 1 limit policy.

Got mine at HLJ. Confirmation email received. :)

Might preorder an Armoured VF-1J Hikaru now so the shipping is better. Not sure because I don't collect hero valks (exception is Isamu custom) as it just leads me to want to buy all the hero valks (was balls - dumb swiftkey keyboard haha) (too expensive :p)

Good luck with all the hero BALLS ...JK.

Yeah they nabbed me.

If they suspended your account, just write to them and ask them why and if they said you broke their policy just apologies to them and let them know it was by mistake as you though the first order didn't go through.

I almost muffed this one up big time.. I was actually on a game running some dungeon with a few friends at 11, completely forgot about the time change, and thought I had til 12.. I panicked, loaded CD Japan (the page was appearing broken at the time, nothing loaded right), and found the right places to click, all while trying to play an rpg one handed. :lol:

Still, most painless order yet, outside of webshop stuff.

Very possibly just 5-secs.

You posted it up around 11:45 PST. I clicked on it immediately and my clock was at 11:46 PST. It was already closed. Posted my comment right away at 11:46 PST.

Ridiculous...

:D

I know there's about a 95% chance HLJ will open up orders closer to release like they always do, but this still sucks. Also, frakk CDJ and frakk NY.

I kinda want to go order a porno figure off Mandarake out of spite. <_<

There are at least 18 products up for preorder tonight (just guessing from that CDJ newsletter) so it might be awhile for NY. They are sloooow about putting up those product pages one by one.

this is getting weird. NY is not yet out

edit: in that one hour time frame, NY only put two sailor moon figures and one PS vita accessories <_<

They are taking their time and laughing at us... or rolling dice to see what the markup will be. :blink:

I almost missed this one tonight, I got my new Denon receiver tonight and went to replace the old one with it and got distracted and almost forgot :o

Glad CDJ was there with stock lol.

LOL happened to me as well, couldn't log back in to cancel my extra order. Sent HLJ an e-mail explaining the situation, will see what they say. Honestly, didn't see they had a one order limit. ^_^'

Edit: Account unlocked by HLJ. Woot!

Maybe they just failed to snipe/cart-jack extra valks from the other retailers coz you guys cleaned out ami/hlj/cdj/hs quickly... :D

Wait for NY. They usually come through. Also possible that orders might open in the future nearer to release. Always been that way. Same thing with the 25S with CDJ. Also glad this was more painless than the 25S. :D
