Packaging on the stuff I've gotten has been good, however I've seen at least one picture of less than good packaging.

They are reliable, and the shipping is both fast and cheap (via DHL).

So is DHL their shipping method, now the thing is getting serious probably will not cancel my Amazon JP order then :D

If you live in the US, then amz-jp is currently the best option, especially with the fast dhl-shipping. 

Ami might have better item-discounts on it if you import from them, but the shipping-fees will most likely offset that advantage.  This applies to other regular japan-shops if you import.  Maybe N-Y will still offer the boat-option if you want to get the lowest shipping-fees with the longest wait/delivery.

 

Will be sending it to California and so if the MSRP going  for 25 K something, and probably if AmiAmi gets it will be at 23 K something or less, and now add that Y4,500 DHL shipping so in the end will end up with the same price :D , ok I'm assuming too much I will stop now lol.

Well, you can't imagine how the $600-1100 VE-1 eBay sellers feels about this announcement. :fool:

 

That's exactly why I'm so excited of this surprising release, a freaking slap in the face to those people.

1-3?  My only option was 3-6 days.

When ordering that was the time-frame that was displaying , but after placing the order I think is the same as yours, but still pretty damn fast imo :D

I don't believe that here is any other shipping options for pre-orders/regular orders on Amazon.jp as the default is DHL (please correct me if I'm wrong). Other Japanese hobby stores have DHL, EMS or SAL.

added regular order

Well, I just pre-ordered it from Amazon JP.  The VE-1 is my favorite of all the valkyries, so I could not resist.

If we are lucky, maybe we will see Amazon do some price drops similar to how they dropped the price on the HMR VF-1D twice after the initial offering and applied said new price to those who already ordered.

*sigh* Now I kind of regret how much I spent on the 2 Yamato v2 1/60 VE-1 toys I bought. Oh well...

I have a feeling that @Shizuka the Cat might be interested as we know that she has the Yammie version already or are you going to pass over this?

Of course I ordered it. I have to have:

1.) Yammie version with rainbow canopy

2.) Yammie version without rainbow canopy

3.) Arcadia version without rainbow canopy

What other choice was there?

We’re these options?

1. With option parts 

2. 30th anniversary

The 30th anniversary release came with a clear canopy and option parts. The first release is rainbow canopy and no option parts.

Yeah, it was one of the surprise last minute releases before Yamato shut down, amid 30th releases of the other most popular designs.  I was hoping we'd get a VT-1 as well, but it didn't happen.  I was thrilled it happened, because I'd never gotten around to getting one the first time it was out, and was able to fill that particular hole in my collection.

You shouldn’t feel bad, those Yammies have awesome tinted canopies.  Besides, you should be able to pose your favorite Valk in all three modes at once.

Technically, I have 4 favorite modes for the VE-1:

1.) Fighter with AEW&C Parts and landing gear retracted.

2.) Fighter with AEW&C Parts and landing gear extended.

3.) Fighter without AEW&C Parts and landing gear retracted.

4.) Fighter without AEW&C Parts and landing gear extended.

There’s no preorder discount for premium finish , so it will cost you much more due to no shipping discount from other stores besides Amazon.jp

Current speculation is that this PF is a normal retail release, rather than a web-store exclusive. Thus it probably will have a discount, rather than costing more than MSRP.

True , I totally forgot about them not doing the normal version this time .  But that 1200 yen amazon shipping is going to be tough to beat .

I may end up regretting this, but I'm going to wait a day or so and see if the other vendors post this.  I want one, but I don't want to commit right away.

Why not just preorder it already while you go waiting a day or so, and then cancel if you find other vendors' offering to be better than amz-jp?

The amz-jp po-page says you have until 2/11 to cancel it, anyway.

I love the rainbow canopies and still wish Arcadia would put them on their PF valks, for the price they're going for. Luckily the old Yamato VE-1 release has a lot of tampo already, so I won't have to do much work to fake a PF w/rainbow canopy. :)

How odd, you left out the far superior Gerwalk mode from that list...

You show me a scene from the DYRL movie that shows the VE-1 in Gerwalk mode, then I might consider it.
