Weird.  I didn't get an alert.

The alerts aren't instant. If you want instant alerts you need to set up a web listener.

Up load Distill Web Monitor in your computer (will all the Japanese hobby stores to the list that you know) and you won't miss a thing-  https://distill.io/

* Note: You have to be quick as for sure that many others are also hunting it down at the same time you are *

I'm really happy with these pieces.  Real quality in these Macross lines.  I'm looking forward to getting the missle pack for the DX VF-1J and hopfully a Super Pack.

Emotional rollercoaster and a great bookend to the last 11 years of MCU. You wont be disappointed.

I enjoyed the Avengers movie. Confusing at parts, but it was enjoyable.

I was amused that Tony Stark mentioned the EPR paradox. Yay quantum mechanics.... or rather, Einstein's opposition to quantum mechanics being a complete theory.

Please spoiler that. Not everyone has seen the movie yet (I have).

¥35,000 plus tax is fukked.

Yes. If you live in Japan, you'll pay Y37800. But if you're in the US, you'll pay Y35000 only. If you click the English link on the top part of the page, the price will show Y35000.

I have never paid tax on something from Mandarake, not even when I bought something in-store in Japan (no tax for visitors).

Yeah. You just need to pay tax if you live in Japan. Tourists doesn't. ;)

The alert is pushed when it stays unsold for a certain time. If it gets sold fast, you won't get any.

That Max 1A is looking really nice.

I wonder which color schemes will be tamashii exclusives down the line? (Kaki 1A? Max / Milia 1J?)

All of 'em, if we're lucky.  Anything to help supply equal demand.

The Max 1A pre-order madness was... madness.  :vava:

Still no ejection seat marking. 

Now you have reason to use your extra ejection seat decals. ;)

I agree as well. That was the worst I’ve ever seen. This pictures really make me sad I couldn’t get one, even though I had one in my cart at 2 different stores moments after sales started. :mellow:

I mean, you could still get one....with a bit of a premium price. I totally understand not wanting to. Personally, I had to pay a small premium for Hikaru. Better than what prices are hitting for VF-1J now and what I presume Max will get to some time after release.

This blue on head shoulder and hips is deeper than the stock photos.  I like it.

God forbid Bandai ever do a Perfect Finish version which just has the inclusion of Ejection Seat markings. LOL!

If it was too long, then it will have the issue like the DX YF-19 (Full Set) with the busted antenna (however in the bottom if the styro tray not on top). :ph34r:

Looks ok to me, but would it get snagged in transformation?  I'd still buy it...
