Macross Master File

Recommended Posts

I cancelled my order with Amazon and ordered it through CDJ as I had over 2000 rewards points to burn and that wiped out the postage costs! :D

Amazon shipping is quick and cheap....but I may want to go with HLJ this time....

that's true but with my available points at CDJ makes this book undercut the price I paid for the similarly priced Third Sortie art book.

I cancelled my order with Amazon in favor of CDJ as I had a few thousand rewards points to burn before they expired but they haven't sent me anything about my order yet. I guess I gotta just wait.. At least it cost me next to nothing though!

Haven't heard a peep from HLJ, was hoping to bundle it with the SV-252 for shipping.  Amazon is saying that its out already?  I hope HLJ changes its status soon.

CD Japan sent me a shipping notice for Variable Fighter Master File: VF-31 Siegfried and Master Archive Mobile Suit: MS-06 Zaku II this morning, so it looks like it's out already...

Though I gotta admit, based on what I've seen in terms of spoiler pics from the Variants portion of the book, I am NOT impressed... and am quietly dreading another mess like the VF-4 book.

I got shipping notice from CDJ. Not sure I'll see it this week but at least it's on the way.

I'm on US, East Coast. Usually HLJ sends me payment request around 3 to 4 PM EST. Hopefully this will happen today.

Should have mine sometime today... it's a very Macross midweek, with the VF-31 Master File and DX Sv-262 today, and Vol.9 of the Blu-ray tomorrow.

My Master File should be here today.  Effing LA Customs STILL has my 262 for the third day in a row though.

... well I guess I won't get my book today.  FedEx apparently wants me to sign for books now too.  They've never asked for a signature on a book before ever.

Above a certain declared cash value, FedEx requires signatures on international shipments regardless of the content... I've run afoul of that many times before.  I found it helpful during the Mecha Manual's last round of acquisitions, to use the "Hold at FedEx Location" option in the FedEx app to have them deliver any package from overseas at the FedEx store closest to my day job.  Then I just pop over on lunch or after work and collect everything since the stores are open much later than the depots.

I normally do have Fed Ex hold at a location near my Mom's home but I've never had to for any of the Master File books before.  I've bought pretty much all of them from CDJapan and this is the first time it's happened.  It's no big deal, I'll grab it tomorrow afternoon, I'm more fussed over LA Customs.
