Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

HLJ kept freezing and hanging.  First 404 error then 503 error at checkout, then sold out - boo!  CDJ sold out as I was checking out too.  Luckily Amiami let me get one through.  This was a tough one so far.  Not happy with the new HLJ site either.

No. Haven't even used them for a while. Last thing i got was a preorder for VF-1J Dx.

you might have to reset your password due to the new site change.  I had to do that to log in to the new site.

I sent HLJ an email telling them their website sucks when they first deployed it. It hasn't improved. I can only get it to work some times in IE. In Chrome it shi*ts the bed.

Bummed about Amazon.jp not shipping to the U.S.  I was hoping to start using them for more macross figs.

I knew that was too good to be true.  I'm surprised they did that for so long. HG probably got to them.

I hate these new site updates that HLJ and AmiAmi did. With the prices posted across, I ended up getting my 3 orders at Nin-Nin. Let's see how it goes since this is the first time I used them. Didn't had time to secure orders at CDJ while waiting for my HLJ and Ami cart pages to load.

FINALLY. I got AmiAmi to work. This is the first new order I've done with them in like a year.

Still wondering how people were able to locate the HLJ listing so much more quickly than simply hitting refresh on the usual search terms (hi-metal r and VF-4)...

WTH with Amiami and HLJ... Amiami keeps saying time out no matter I add items to the cart. HLJ performance is slow. I ended up placed order in cdj. Very disappointed after they upgraded the websites.

So true I only wanted one, most probably will be selling one of those here in the Forums with at least 20% discount to encourage a fast selling.

That's a good question, I couldn't find the Advance search anywhere on the new site... was super easy on the old one.

Same here. The new items never show up as results but they do once they reach 'Order Stop' status. This wasn't the case before.

Someone pointed out it seems to be stuck on 2.

Yeah. Same here earlier. I thought I can still get atleast one of that two. And that was 15mins ago. ;)

Now, I'm a little bit scared of people might post stories regarding their Nin-Nin experience since I just ordered my three orders from them. :unsure:

AmiAmi actually worked fine for me, somehow.

I sent HLJ feedback saying "Sorry, your site sucks, you just lost my business for anything that's in-demand, because it's too slow to beat the purchase bots in Japan."

Just got one in  Amiami after changing my browser (chrome was getting me to log in but never past that).

This was a lot more bogus than I expected (between hlj timing out and amazon jp deciding no North American orders...).

amiami worked for me though
