no worries man, you're helping alot of people with the links, thank you for this  

My pleasure. 

I just feel bad that some here may not have been able to pre-order the VF-31E. 

This was one of the hardest to get pre-order madness events that I think I have ever seen.

Screw this!  Maybe I'll get one at or close to release, and if I don't, much like the Kairos, it won't be the end of the world.  Good night, all.

oh man...I hope mine is secured.....

Anyone got it from NY or was it just a "fake" preorder? They cancelled my order too....:angry:

I think there were some that got their orders through even though it said at payment that it was sold out.

Lettuce discuss why Amazon Japan isn't shipping to the US.

 

This does not bode well for future Macross DX's.

This was like a non-stop page snafu pileup.  I don't think I've ever seen CD Japan behave that badly, and every site except HLJ refused to load anything for me past the "preorder" link until they were sold out.

I think amazon is a bit random when it comes to the international shipping policies for PO valks. I wonder if HG had anything to do with it, seriously.

Keep the order, and resell it here, I'd say, unless you can't pay for it.  Letting it go now just means it gets lost somewhere in the internet, probably never to be seen again.

Oh, that's an easy one to answer.

The VF-31E was never sold by AmazonJP itself, but rather thru a few secondary vendors thru the AmazonJP website. While AmazonJP would ship to the US if they were the direct seller, that does not apply to those secondary sellers.

Which is odd, since I was able to preorder the Arcadia VE-1 Elintseeker just a couple of days ago on Amazon JP

I’m not sure about that. When it gave me the error message on shipping I did go back and recheck the seller, and it was indeed amazon.jp GK.

Yes I also PO’d the VE-1 from them so it does seem a bit odd that it’s different for the 31E.

It was available directly from amazon.jp they just wouldn't ship to some countries.  It seems a bit random what they will and will not ship.

Oh?  I never did see one sold from amazon.jp GK.  But are usually the ones to disappear first.

Ami kept adding items to my cart (except chuck) when I went to check out. It was weird. Anyone else see that?

Can anyone help me do a recap of which POs sold by amazon.jp (non third party seller) shipped internationally?

DX VF-1J - yes

HMR VF-4 - yes

HMR VF-1D - yes

DX YF-19 - no? Can’t remember

VF-31E - no

any others?

I wonder if demand for this one was artificially inflated by resellers jumping on the completionist exploitation bandwagon.  Demand for this one shouldn't really be any higher than any of the others, except as the final piece to a set.

We'll see how hard it is to get at release, I guess.  Maybe people are anticipating the demand once his armor parts get released.

Thanks! Somehow I got the impression that this wasn’t the first Macross PO that they had refused to ship overseas, but can’t remember which one.

Those can take a little while to process.  I wouldn't worry if you have the confirmation email.
