NY already demanding blood money for the HMR VF-4 that comes out at the end of next month.

I love the dramatization going on with NY. You forgot to mention that they are “demanding” the money for the item that comes out next month........to be paid by next month:p
 

Some people could have great careers in news media. :D

I love the way you constantly shill and rationalize for NY. Are you on their payroll?

Probably shouldn't make ridiculous remarks towards people about careers in news media when you yourself omit key details to make misleading statements about NY.

You omitted that NY wants the money by the start of next month for an item that comes out at the end of next month. No other retailer does this. But it's okay if NY does, because everything NY does is right and justified in your book.

Haha, I thought we were all friends here and wasn’t trying to go that far. :D

Hey now! I’m just having fun here and balancing out the overly misleading hate for NY. I’ve mentioned many times that I don’t give a crap about them or any other shop, just who gets me my toys for the lowest price and it would be great if all the people hating on them would stop using them like @sqidd by putting his money where his mouth is. 
 

What’s more purposefully misleading to incite hate? You calling them out and specifically mentioning the item releases next month and conveniently leaving out the part where their payment is also due next month or me clarifying that the payment and release are both next month?

haha, no worries, I know there is still good in you.

A Regult Scout release would be a setback for my current financial goals, but I hope there will be one (please make it in the latter part of the year Bandai, if ever). I will be sitting out of other HMR valks that's why I am not complaining of the lack of releases. Unless if they are from Frontier (Alto's) or Basara's or *shock* they make the Queadlunn Rau. In that case RIP wallet and savings and future trips. :lol:

yeah, I hope they release by year's end.

@Lolicon I never had problems with them but i see your point.

FWIW, the end of next month thing is a placeholder until they have the actual release date. Standard practice at NY, most other retailers don't list a day of the month until Bandai gives one (typically around the start of the month).

So, I just recently dipped my toe into the Hi Metal R pool with the VF-4. 
 

I love it. Now I want more. But first has to be the DX YF-19.

When is the deadline to pay for the VF-4G at NY?  I already paid for my 2 there since I preordered after they took off the pay later option but I have no issues.

As far a NY goes, I only use them if I have to or if their price is lower than everyone else.  The more people that boycott them the less competition I will have getting my fix of Collectables.  :p  I understand wanting things as soon as possible, but I can wait.  So long as I get my orders.  You just gotta beat down the envy/jealousy that wells up when everyone here starts to receive their orders.  :vava:

 

They are French owned (I believe), so expect French-like service?  Whatever that is...

Ny has saved me a lot of pain over recent years. They do the web exclusives and when my favorite site decided to be the most difficult to figure out, they’ve been there. I have other preferences, but ny is more than just a backup plan for me.

The completest in me wanted to pick this one up, but I have other large purchases I want to make.  Since I already have the first release I'm passing on this as well.

I mostly picked this one up to customize, and for the alternate head.  The HMR VF-4's parts are pretty easy to swap in and out, so I might mix and match components with the FB2012 version.

And its gone....

It was gone last night around 10:00 pm to 10:30 pm PST. 

The Monster is up for grabs if anyone wants it for their collection. I'm sure that I'll end up paying the Customs Fee and it will cost my close to $250ish ( or more ?) CND for it in total.

I saw the monster at their nakano shop before and almost bought it, too bad I did not see the regult missile set there else that would have been a no brainer for me.

I got my Monster for like $210 but I'd still pay that price.

My shelf is getting a bit busy now- it's hard to take a photo that highlights anything.

This next is especially hard to photograph with Lego Voltron dominating behind them.

Also just got a Meptoys Breetai, so I'm likely gonna have him clubbing Hikaru's 1J in my next set of poses.

It could be worse, you could have been charged a month early for the 0D and then found out it was delayed three months.

Can you take a picture of the underside?

You're probably collapsing it in the wrong order, but it's hard to tell without being able to see the mechanism.

it feels tighter when I connect the intakes to it but still has a little gap, not sure if that’s normal.
