Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting to see what our traditional outlets will put it up for but, considering Arcadia's price,  that from Japan price isn't bad.

I keep checking NY, not sure who else will have it available but I'm thinking in the next day or two jumping on FromJapan instead.

Since Bandai... this Arcadia thing is a weird outlier.

Wow? Really? That's a whole extra $200 CAD for me. I can't see why it would cost that much more. Arcadia disappoints again.

Well then.  I have a lot of Bandai Star Wars models to practice on before the non-PF version ships out, lol.

It's quite painful to wait for the PF till Apr next year, Considering still need to pay the extra. the normal edition is getting alluring... decision decision...

Guess there will be a lot of manual works at the factory side, thus Arcadia cannot come out with too large number of PFs...

The PF version is the only version for me. I still have the old Yamato version so I'd rather go with the newer release with all the detailing.

Other concern would be do we need to buy additional shipping insurance since EMS only covers Y20000? :rolleyes:

EMS usually works best, that's the service I always use.

Depends on your country. For Chile EMS is as bad as SAL, but in general EMS is the best option.

Looking forward to canceling that pre-order when I find it at a better price. If NY or AE fail me I'll try one of those services discussed earlier.

You mean cancel the HLJ one?

Their price is a rip off I agreed.

Yeah I'm not biting. Still undecided on this figure; I can buy a lot of toys for $550-$600 :blink:

I recommend you cancel the second because it's limit 1 per customer. They might cancel all your orders.

LOL. Not sure how one 'accidentally' preorders two of these things.

Anyhoo, I didn't see the limit-1-per-customer warning at HLJ. Maybe I missed something?

I went ahead with HLJ simply because I can ship FedEx.  Not sure if I can from those other proxy places.

No option to cancel one of the orders yet:ph34r:

On the  first order I got distracted, and it took me a while to fill in the payment options.

when I hit submit it almost looked like I had been logged out.

so logged back in but did not see any orders, so I placed a second.

Then got two pre-ordee emails:blink:

I'll pay that HLJ markup to make sure I get one .
