If no one else has claimed, I am interested. I haven't had a chance to get a 1/48 VF-1 yet, or any classic Macross in general and this would be a great starter

I said that to myself. " Just one, I dont need to many of them..." I have like 35 now. But the VF-1S will be a great start for you.

Does it normally take time for an item to become available or is that a bad sign? Luckily for me I was able to request shipping on mine.

Mine is showing as not shippable also, am I the odd man out?

The reality is that A) this VF-1S isn't due to release until Saturday, 11/23 (and it's only 7:18 AM in Japan right now so there's plenty of time left for the 23rd).  B) Many places don't ship on Saturdays, so I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't shipping updates till Japan's Monday.

Preparing for shipment at amazon :) 

First time using a forwarding service. Hope everything gets to where it needs to go :hail:

Oops!

We'll see if the japanese-fans will be extra sensitive enough to complain about it to get Bandai to fix/replace it like they did with the original Alto YF-29...

 

 

The YF-29 shoulders just popped off, the vertical stabilizer would be hard to change

I have zero faith I'll stop at one, hoping to nab one of these and the Roy, and if the VF-1A continues to drop in price as it has been, that could be a huge maybe

FedEX was cheaper than EMS for me, so I went with that.  FedEX was faster, too.

With fedex ,There’s also more options to pickup your package .

not sure if hlj shipping account allows it or not, but if they do , you can request it to be hold for pickup at a Fedex office , shipping center , or any Walgreens since it will need a indirect signature.   ( need to check that next week )

It's goddamn pathetic when even people living in Japan can't get their hands on a 1S because of Bandai's "produce the absolute minimum so that nothing stays on the shelves for more than 5 minutes" policy, nevermind people abroad and the hordes of Chinese tourists here.

Did amazon Japan ever reopen sales for the 1S? Seems very unlikely now.

FWIW, I caught a chaotic brief window on AJ for Max a week after he was released and snagged at MSRP but no one else reported getting him at that time. It was really glitchy
