Why would you come back to defend yourself? Maybe because you desperately want people to believe you are not the seller and that you found this "amazing deal" that you want people to go back and click so that you get people to buy from you?

 

How about this: you come back *after* PO madness and let us know you are selling for $225 and then we'll think likely you've scored an amazing deal. Right now all you've offered is something that is waaaay above what the current price is, If you spent half the time lurking as you pretend to, you would not be coming here with fake indignation, because you'd already know what the reaction would be. If you persist, you will likely find your account banned and your posts deleted. And that *definitely* won't drive any traffic to your site....er, I mean your totally unrelated seller's site.

 

If I really was the seller, this forum would be a lost cause to me by now as far as hawking overpriced valks to gullible collectors is concerned. At this point I'm just sitting here, kind of amused that some people can be so completely wrong, yet so utterly confident they've caught me out.

And If I really was the seller, I doubt I'd need to resort to these cheap selling tactics you're accusing me of. I'd make a killing anyway on the days and weeks after launch day.

Man, I kinda wish I was the seller though. Would be nice to have the kind of hook-up that lets you secure that many preorders.

Also, I never said that page I shared was an "amazing deal". I specifically said I don't know how it's going to compare to the eventual scalper prices. It's just one of the first available options.

Lastly, I'm fine if my account gets banned for some mistake I made in sharing that post. But it would be unfair if the perceived mistake was me trying to sell something - because I'm not :)

Or has it?  We don't really know.

Nothing to see here... move along, move along...

Can you two just stop 'talking'. It's a circle of zero value add conversation. There's a listing, you've pointed to it, if someone wants to pursue it great.

If you're someone who doesn't want to pursue it, a simple "no thanks" will suffice. If you think it's a scam, alert an admin that they should probably remove the link. 

DONE.

That's what I've been trying to do for some time now, so thank you.

My apologies to the rest of you here for having to endure that. Good luck with your preorders.

Indeed.  Get your favorite drink on whether that is of the alcoholic persuasion or some other refreshing beverage.  I'll definitely be mixing water in between bourbon sips.

Has anyone been able to get anime export to ship any missile sets?

They keep telling me that "shipment to USA is currently suspended  by Japan post." 
Assuming Japan post is the only method they use to ship....

Same here!!! Trying to get the set shipped to Argentina, South America. 

My country has all incomimg flights suspended until September <_<

Cool cool.  I'll have to try that sometime.  Not a fan normally, but that might be a good way with that whiskey.

 

Try it. It's amazing.

Besides HLJ, who else doesn't charge until shipping? 

Amiami, Hobby Search, CD Japan for sure. Sites like NY or Mykombini may or may not demand upfront payment, depending on their mood.

did we ever determine if preorders started at 4pm or 5pm Japan time?

It's always been 4 PM as long as I've been doing this. What time each individual retailer decides to actually open POs is another matter.

Amiami usually opens right on the dot. HLJ and HS follow at some random time after.

How well do HLJ and HS Pack their items?

It's a moot question with HS... there is a 0.0000000000001% you'll get a PO there. I feel like they get 3 of each DX because as soon as someone says "Up at HS" it has already been sold out for a minute. 

HLJ usually gives a decent box with the toy vacuum sealed to a piece of cardboard. Generally it works out pretty well.

I will join in tonight, just in case I get lucky. But I am already resigned to buy this on release day with a markup.

May the force of F-5 be with us.

What's with the 20 million questions noobs?  Just sit back, hang out here and enjoy the ride.  You'll see people posting the info you need, I promise.  Be great if you could contribute back as well.

It's not going to matter.  Not being a jerk but tonight - you'll be lucky to secure a PO from anywhere.  So, the reality is that you'll be rolling with the chaos and will take where you can get it.

Even all those people who complain about NY - many will just grab there if they can.

Good luck guys.

Will be on the sidelines as I'm refreshing for the eventual upcoming DX YF-21 pre-orders. Ice Cold Coffee for me and Espresso Pillows to get though this. 

@Lolicon - You read my mind on your own selection. ;)

You good friend are not alone. I have had horrible luck. But I have gotten them then next few days and of course at make up. Which I am not happy about, but it beats missing out all together. But then again, there have been multiple times I could have snagged the Hik 1S or VF-1 Max or J from Mandrake.

Yeah and honestly, there is always a chance on release day. Hikkie 1S was brutal.  I didn't land on PO night but did on release day (or maybe a day before release).

Yeah. Hope we get more news about that DX YF-21 this weekend. I'll have to stay up for that pre-order too if an announcement is imminent.

For Roy's event, it all begins at 0300 for me.

Good collection there!  Woodford is a nice staple if you can't decide.  I prefer EH Taylor but been finding it difficult to nab lately.

Haha yeah, I stock up on different kinds of Woodford because it's easier to get and pretty much my goto standard Bourbon. I don't remember (maybe a good thing?) if I had EH Taylor but thanks for the recommendation! I mainly prefer my peaty Scotch though with that Laguvulin 16 being one of my favorites. I have a stack of Glenfiddich on the top shelf that you can't see in the pick which serves as my "Wodford" of Scotches...something cheaper and easier to get but I still like a lot.

Good luck all.   Play nice.  
 

I might join in the craziness but I still have my Yammie 1/48 1S.
