Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

Went with HLJ as well. Had a credit I forgot about so that helped, even though their price was already pretty good.

One of those two.  I did a search for Hi-Metal R.  It didn't pop up until just before I posted.

Yeah, thanks. 

I was gonna ask if anyone knew what was wrong with HLJ, but figured the answers would be too long. :unsure:

I'm getting an error trying to add to cart at HLJ.

This happened to someone I know who had their account suspended for canceling too many orders. You could try logging out and back in again.

Got the weirdest confirmation email from HLJ.

Somehow, this does not look right...

My address and the order ID are both missing from the email.

Thanks. Figured it out -- it looks like it was already in my cart and wouldn't allow 2. I'm too sleepy to be doing this...

They do this thing where they send an order acknowledgement, then the confirmation after.

I got the same. No shipping address and blank Order Id, but then I got another email just now that had all the correct info. The first email was titled "Order Acknowledgement" whereas the second email with the correct info was titled "Order Confirmation"

Okay, got the confirmation.  Cancelled my Amazon JP order, since HLJ was cheaper.

Does HLJ give shipping prices?

Not for PO items. At least, not that I've been able to find. I want to say the old site did show estimated shipping costs, but it's been awhile so I could be misremembering

Not that I see. It puts it to the private warehouse, where I guess afterwards they determine shipping.

Not for unreleased items, I don't think, but you can always check the shipping quotes from similar ones.

After 20 minutes sitting in my car with my VF-1D in my Ami Ami cart not loading the submit order I gave up and went to CD Japan and got one in 3 minutes.

This is my first order from them. Not thrilled paying in advanced.  Would have preferred Ami Ami as I have a running point balance with them but can't wait on that broken website.

And when i arrived home my Ami Ami ordered finally loaded the correct screen 40 minutes after putting it in my cart.  I then deleted it.

With CDJ, you can put a credit card on file and you won't pay in advance, only paypal pays in advance.

So, I decided to switch my order cancellations. I re-ordered from Amazon JP and cancelled from CD Japan.

Amazon JP is 59 yen more expensive after cheapest shipping option, but their shipping supposedly delivers in 3 - 5 days, versus the SAL god knows how long that CD Japan uses.

In total, I have 2 orders now.  Amazon JP and HLJ.

I will stick around online for a while longer to update shopping links.

Did Hobby Search ever opened their PO yet? I'm waiting for them, but I might bite the bullet and get it from hlj.

Came and went in an instant.

Amazon JP is my new backup store since they’re reliable, they let me order more than 1, and orders are easy to cancel.  Unfortunately not a big discount on their VF-1D.

It was pretty easy to cancel my PO from CD Japan also.

If AE was open, it wasn't long!

I am cycling thru my list of stores, refreshing to see if things become available or sell out.... because I have no life. LOL. So I caught AE opening almost immediately.

Supposedly 3-5 days shipping from amz.jp?  You haven't ordered yet from them?

My amz-jp orders were usually 2-days received from japan release-date. Unless it's a weekend release, of course.

Btw, SAL/SAL-Registered shipping from CDJ and other Japan-shops are usually 2-4 weeks. They are subject to USPS' own local delays, tho.

Looks like it automatically applies the price change to your preorder, sweet!

Now it's 7767 with EMS equivalent. That's nice.
