Anyone know when AmiAmi's likely to request payment on the 31S preorder and how long they give you to pay?

The 31s is supposedly due on the 21st, so add 7 days to that. I miss that abt ami, as normally i would have an extra month to pay since my cc bill cuts over near the end of the month.

I went with HLJ on the 31S as couldn't secure it on ami, so i will have 3 days to pay.

The Tamashii web listing: http://tamashii.jp/item/12492/

I actually accussed of NY on adding a week on the official release date (to avoid complaints on not shipping parcel fast for EMS) when all along what they declared is true. How horrible of me :rolleyes:

 

@neovanguard

Nice that yours is being prepped now.

 

 

To others that got affected by NY issue with 31A, I just want to also say that before they shipped mine, I was being extra nice/polite. I know that we are customers and we want to be treated as such but I was really desperate to get one and missing it at NY probably means missing it completely (wont pay 500 usd for it).

 

So the procedure is one, raise a ticket, and two be nice about it. Of course it is your decision if you want to stick with NY or not after that.

Completely agree. This was also my approach when I contacted them in June, and I got a response and shipment update within hours.

I want to revive that old list that accounts for all pending and fulfilled orders from the different online shops. When we last updated it, it already showed that NY had fulfilled more orders than any other vendor (at least from the data submitted here). But they also had a lot more pending orders left to fulfill.

I’m thinking that now there are more on the fulfilled side rather than the pending.

I sent out a ticket yesterday and received the same response. No shipping notification yet but I ordered on 10/27. If sending a polite email moves me up the list though I'll take it.

Finally got the VF31A from Nippon. They actually missed out my order and i wrote to them a copy of times and it took them a week to reply and then 3 days later, preparation in progress then another 3 days later finally shipped. Its came without the original brown box, dent at one corner and the front sticker of the box is not firmly sticked on. Doesn't seem like they got it from Bandai but the outside market...Anyway they kept to their promise and i guess they are still trying to fulfill all the orders. For those who are still waiting...Hang in there.

Received an in-stock notice for the 31S. Hopefully they'll be shipping out for everyone in the next couple of days.

Vf-31s at 23k?:blink:

Yeah NY originally had it for 17580 JPY which is what I got it for.  It’s usually a good idea to stay up and get it early and get it cheaper.

So Arad's 31s is getting mailed out two days before the official release date of those who have it pre-ordered from NY.

Wasn't that the asking price for Arad's or was ¥24k? I honestly don't remember anymore since I have Mirage's.

Edit: Maybe after the post pre-orders if anyone was missed it?

NY appears to subsidize their preorder price by gouging people who didn't stay up late and make it through their spinning wheels of death to get a preorder in. 

Not saying that's bad, that just appears to be their model.

To tell you the truth, the regular MSRP posted by Bandai on their Tamashii site is Y22680 + 8% tax. It's why most people stay for preorder night because it's discounted. ;)

22680 is the price with the 8% consumption tax added. 

The actual MSRP is 21000 yen.

Was interesting in getting a second, but I figure with the new crazy armor pack in the newest movie, they'll have to retool the figure to have additional attachment points

No word yet from CDJ, looking back at it I guess they charged full retail of ¥21,000.

No word from HLJ yet as well.
