Gotta love CDJ. They stay open the longest, I think. It's a nice security blanket. Screw the scalpers. They can eat shi*t.

I got one at amiami. First time since the YF-25 and 2nd time overall and I've tried for every pre-order. Strange this is I refreshed right on the dot but it took a good 30 seconds to load the page so I was looking at other sites by then, and the pre-order button came out so I gave it a shot. The order process was slow and took 2 minutes, well after people reported it was sold out. I honestly think it's some kind of lottery as I didn't do anything special and my internet speed is meh, so somehow I just got lucky.

How many people got one from amiami? They are so useless to get preorders from. It's like they only have 5 copies or a shitload of scalpers using a script or something.

But you can get it at CDJapan instead :)

They clearly don't want your money.

You have to sign up for their email list. The link only works from the email. You can't search it on their site for some reason. Learned that the hard way.

Figures & Toys > New Items Listed

...I had to go digging for it this time. My email never came.

I do get the emails, but must have lost this one to the bit bucket. Thanks again!

Interesting. Did they change their system. I thought you could get cart jacked at Amiami?

Well I have to say congrats on getting one through Ami! I thought it was going to be next to impossible! I was pressing the refresh button and it went from "on sale soon" to "preorders closed" from one refresh to the next.. crazy!

CDJapan is still open! go get it from them before they close..

Ordered at CDJ. Paid full retail and a little more for shipping. But beats having to panic and frustrate or pay premium secondary market price. worth it for USD20-25 diference =)

They dont ship FedEx. I cant redirect EMS or SAL to hold at counter.

Then NY is your next best bet. I'm gonna stick around a little and see if they post up theirs.

The what now?

I see EMS, SAL-Parcel, Registered Air-Mail and Registered-SAL for this item as shipping options.

fwiw, EMS is 4300y and Reg-SAL is 1810y.

They don't ship FedEX but what I can pick those types do not allow me to place the package on HOLD at USPS or some other counter for pickup. FedEx I can reroute my package to a FedEX center for pickup later or a different day. As state above I guess NY is my only hope.

That's weird. If EMS or SAL doesn't catch me on delivery, my post office always leaves a note and holds the package there for me...

Oh. That's a little different, then.

fwiw, I got a PO-box at usps just for my imports, especially ems stuff.

Like xrentox mentioned, EMS via USPS usually just leaves me a missed delivery note so I can pickup at the Post Office. Does package intercept work for international orders?
