Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Recommended Posts

N-Y is restricting number of visitors to their site to do shopping...think of it as lining up outside an apple store for example....

but once inside you can do the usual shopping stuff...but you got to do your shopping within a certain time, else out to the line to wait again...

I think tonight has been the single worst PO night for Macross

I can't remember one this bad in a long time. And even then, it was better.

Pay up front will definitely discourage scalpers though. It's 10x easier to get a no-cost PO and then get hte inflated funds to pay for it than it is to put up all the cash up front and then hope somebody buys ur inflated product.

 

One is no-risk ez cash, the other is actual skin in the game.

Except you can't search for stuff without being told to wait back outside.

Amazing display there, red wolf!  Where did you get that nice glass cabinet if you don't mind me asking?

Agree - it's ridiculous how scalpers take advantage of the no deposit preorder at zero cost and risk, and the only investment is time (and bots to compete with live human bids, i.e. moi).

Yeah N-Y is treating search as part of the shopping activity (ie a tool/function) inside the store...know exactly what you want, search for it, and then get out!

sounds just like the soup nazi episode in seinfeld....

shittiest PO night ever. Scalpers knew how VF-1J appreciated.

That seems to be a good read on the situation

Woke up at 4 am for this and went though pages of shock and disappointment from the majority of folks here.  This is a bit depressing, but I though "what the heck, give it a shot"..................  ......................  ................................................. :blink:

My ticket ( what a crock or excrement) was up on N-Y and................... no VF-1A Max in their Macross page.

AE still hasn't listed it either.

Anyone know if you have to pay right away for Amazon.co.jp or can you cancel it later?

For third party sellers, not sure if you can cancel.

So, did ANYONE actually catch a preorder? It kinda sounds like everyone got boned. This is my first rodeo, but it seems as though this is the worst anyone's ever seen

A few were snagged at the usual suspects.... but just a few at each.

I got a confirmation from HLJ, but have less than complete faith in it.

A few did. 

I know at least 1 did when Nin-Nin opened up their pre-order 2 hours early for a few minutes.

I think a few people here got orders in at AmiAmi and HLJ.  Not sure about CDJ.

Glad I wasn't really that interested in this one.. looking like I'll wait for release day and see what comes of it.
