Did they actually go on sale from the Bandai website? I can't believe they would stop within a couple hours. Maybe it's some kind of website error.

I bit the bullet and bought a handful from NY yesterday. Figured it was best to stock up since it looks like there will be a full or mostly full DYRL lineup.

Now my credit card is a smoldering pile of ash from paying up front for the VF-1A, VF-1S and Super/Strike. Sigh...Bandai

So should we panic now? I haven’t ordered a strike pack yet. Was waiting for a voucher request from support desk of nin-nin. This line is a rollercoaster and fickle mistress.

Oh man if NY didnt place their order and Bandai doesnt make another run for a while this might be another Kairos incident for them. I went to order around six from the p-bandai site and they were gone. This has happened before so they will probably make another run for the following month.

Rant mode on:

WTF Bandai????? You are losing money!!!! You are not meeting the demand. Yes, I get it, it's better than unsold stock sitting months in a warehouse. But this DX line is proving to have a great demand.

I landed a 1J preorder at AmiAmi, but couldn't get the 1A and 1S. In my country (in South America) I have to pay 50% import taxes shipping included. So it's not fun at all to pay $100 above MSRP and then being @ss raped at customs. The Hikaru 1S which is my favorite is $380 shipped to Argentina through NY.

So now (although nobody is putting a gun in my head) I have to preorder the Strike Packs at NY just in case I don't miss the preorder, and hope the Kairos scenario won't happen again. And I don't have a 1S yet.

Again, WTF Bandai????

Really miss the smooth PO days. Lancers Sentinel cyclone was a breeze to preorder.

Rant mode off :angry:

This is insane.

Scalpers are already showing up on Yahoo.jp auctions.  It looks like a run on the Strike parts has occurred.  I put an order into NY.  Fingers crossed.

Anyone else watching Macross ga tomaranai?

They pretty much just announced that they're going to do a second run of the strike parts.

Ordered a few at NY.  I kind of want to order from at least 1 more vendor, just to diversify my source.

This line is getting absolutely ridiculous.  Glad to hear they will probably do another run of SS parts.

Why not do another run of valks, while they're at it?! :fool:

Doesn't matter, as long as we know there will be another run and chance. :)

They use this channel to make actual announcements? I thought those were paid actors acting like they were interested in the hobby.

When Chucks Siegfried came out Macross ga tomaranai was the second place they announced it after the bakuon live viewing. Once in a while you get some good info.

Granted i can't vouch for their interest lol.

So do they require prepay or deposit? I haven’t used them before. It looks like I have an order with them but was not prompted to pay?

Thanks. Now how do I cancel from nin-nin. Looks like just do a chargeback thru paypal and my credit card, but will probably get blacklisted/banned?

edit: ah I see cancellation policy only for store credit. Hmmmm. mykombini never put max up for sale so I wasn’t ready for them.

Nippon Y has the strike packs in stock right now.

for some reason they made me pay right now even though they are on preorder for “Pay later”

I am just not meant to get a 1S at MSRP or close to it. haha.  I keep missing out barely.  I'm glad I ordered a markup one at NY but it's a matter of how long it'll take to get it because they seem to sell waaay after there should be stock.  The Strike Parts are a perfect example.  I ordered them yesterday, but wonder how many they secured from the first run and are obviously banking on the second as they are still available for preorder on the site today.  Crazy to me.

I don't think they are really in stock.  I think they are just really good at hunting down quantity as needed.  @Tenbatsu was showing like 1500 stock "available" to sell.  I don't know how that's even possible.  1500/6 = 250 separate orders they would've needed to get on p-bandai.  That would be 250 separate mail addresses, right?  And Lord knows how many they sold in the last 24 hours prior.

 Normally option parts have a higher per account order but I guess this time it’s down to 6 per account.   The missiles were like 24 per account.   

Similar to TWE MB Gundams , the first batch can be sold out in hours , but it normally follow up with a announcement of a 2nd batch within a couple of days , and if that still gets sold out fast , they will even announce a 3rd batch .

Well, glad I got confirmation from my proxy. No worries about if a store will or will not get stock, since the proxy directly ordered 4 earmarked for me. Only Bandai or the post office can ruin this now.
