Got my confirmation & order number from HLJ! B))

I did too, but I am not letting myself get too happy about it. Apparently, HLJ's new ordering system allows orders to go through that shouldn't and they have been cancelling orders recently. It hasn't happened to me yet personally, but given how tonight went I am hoping for the best but expecting the worst

So... is this the worst PO success rate so far?

It really seemed like buying lottery so far...i managed to add to cart for AMI, CDJ AND HLJ BUT ALL GOT CART JACKED!

The funny thing is that aside from Hikaru, the VF-1A Max was not ever really that popular. Even with the Yamato V2 1/60 versions they went on clearance for awhile. I know Bandai is more limited, but hopefully there won't be as strong secondary demand for this *crosses fingers*

I'm not going to be confident in my HLJ order until at least a week or two from now, when I don't receive a cancellation email during that time.

Of which they will blame on Bandai.

This happened to me on one of the VF-31 DX PO nights, so I am hoping that I don't repeat that again.

Right now I'm completely unsure of how HLJ handles their order numbers. On the confirmation screen following submitting my order I was given 000149388, but on the order number under my account shows 15095377. ????

Man that sucks that it's already happened to you before. I'm crossing my fingers for both of that we were a few of the lucky ones this time :)

Thanks Ignacio, hopefully you were able to get one as well! 

Was checking out at HLJ, I selected paypal and got a message to contact the support team. Don't know if that means I was cart jacked. Then I selected credit card, and got the same message.

Keep trying folks.

A few months back I was able to nab a certain 31 DX from Ami two hours after preorders had closed.

when nin-nin comes up, it's gonna be 36500 yen....you saw it here first

 

knowing how hard the PO was, I am pretty sure they will "price match" the scalpers on amazon.jp.  YJA has a bunch of auctions that opened up in the last half an hour, all for a target price of 30000 yen.

Double check the confirmation email, one of those numbers may be your customer ID and the other is probably the order ID.

People should watch Anime Export and Bandaionline.

Both are very reliable, but are pay-up-front shops. Both are 100x more reliable than nin-nin

Yes, thanks, will do.  They have both delivered on my POs before.

FYI Bandai PO night mid-checkout is not the optimal time to be making changes to your account information. :unsure:

Agreed. Or change the currency rate during checkout.

I checked and neither one is my customer ID. I also got two emails from HLJ now. The first is an "order acknowledgement" and the second email is an "order confirmation" (after it appeared on my recent orders on their site).
