Noob question : Do I need to create a new Amazon.jp account if I want to purchase from them? I have an Amazon.com account (duh), but can't seem to login on their jp site. 

Thanks for the clarification!

Yes, create a new account

I was ready to order a 2nd from Amazon today for that cheap price,  however when I went to Amazon.JP today, the price had gone back up and free prime shipping to my location in the US was no longer an option. Maybe they discovered the error of their ways..

The VF-2SS Nexx also comes with the rail gun and the extra right side leg armor to store the gun.

So more bells and whistles huh? Thanks!

That just means Amazon.jp has sold out of their pre-order stock.  Amazon affiliates will still be using the site, but they're unlikely to sell outside of Japan... and don't offer Amazon's pre-order price guarantee, either.

I'm surprised Amazon.jp's own stock lasted this long, actually.  I've seen DX Chogokins sell out in under an hour.

Yeh, it's my fault, work just got crazy Thursday and Friday and I didn't have a chance to snap one up when they were cheap. Oh well, still got my one coming from AmiAmi.

Not sure if this has been discussed before, but has there been any leaks from Bandai regarding any possible HMR releases for a YF-21/Sturmvogel or VF-17/171’s?

I'm surprised I didn't get thumb down this time around, as you guys know I buy to hoard valks  Not sure who else here does that. :P :)  I did it with the 1/55 scale ones and flipped half of my collection for an enormous profit.  These hi-metal r are much nicer imho.

Finally picked up another regult; now I can actually open one lol (I like to keep one unopened). 

Kicking myself for not buying more than one of the missile type sets. Those poor figs will never see the light of day :(

Yeah the Regult missile set has really skyrocketed. Really glad I bought one at release, but I’m also hesitant to open them now.

Glad I bought a second set right after release. Now I don't feel bad with my first set sitting on the shelf.

I wonder if I should buy more than four.  I mean, I'm only going to buy one Khakizaki and one Max Super when they come out anyways.  I wonder what else they possibly can come up with.

Go with your gut or stick to your original purchase plan. Unless going with your gut was your original purchase plan. Then no issues! :rolleyes: 

Blue Phalanx would be nice.

Yup I went with it for my VE-1s at least, glad I did that.  I have 10 of those, 2 unboxed.

Maybe it’s because you’re so full of yourself?  In so many of your stupid ass posts you make it sound like you are single handledly “supporting” the hobby, as if nobody else on this board puts money into this hobby.  And look at the stupid ass thing you said above, you hoard these toys so you can sell them at an enormous profit.  It’s thanks to jackasses like you that make it hard for other people to get into this hobby.  In reality, you’re no better than a scalper, so congratulations for being a douche.

Wow...

 

If you're going to cut-down another member for how they exploit their particular life circumstance and freedom to enjoy this hobby however they wish...

then I think most of the membership here would invite you to leave, and take your attitude elsewhere.

Fixed up Nexx's VF-2SS a bit so it wouldn't look so plain. Getting everything to line up right in fighter mode is a pain. Battroid mode is best for the VF-2SS.

Will fix up the SAP later when I have time.
