man i'm feeling so rusty at my PO game... the last truly successful PO I had was way back in July 2018 for the DX 1J.  I got lucky with the Max 1A only because Amazon JP posted it late (and mostly, Valkyrie23 who very generously shared the link here promptly), so I caught the 15 minute window when it was available.  

I think it's going to be much, much harder this time round...

I'm Not ready yet!

Dear Sir, your good deeds were not forgotten, thanks to your amazon JP link way back in April 2019, I managed to score two Max 1A's at MSRP plus 1,200 yen Amazon DHL shipping.  I still owe you for that one:hail::hail:

I have only managed to get the DX 1J on preorder. 

Then TV Max, at a mark up. I refused to get the the DYRL 1S due to its insane mark up. We will se what happens tonight.

On the sidelines tonight, but getting ready for the eventual DX YF-21 pre-orders @rdrunner should it happen soon.

Any Bandai DX preorders are guaranteed bloodbaths since the DX Valkyries were launched last year...:unsure:

I was on the sidelines for the DYRL 1S preorder, and saw from a distance what an absolute s-show it was, especially with the virtual ticket system or crashes with some of the retailers.  

For the DX line I am going to stick with a strict "TV only" policy, and I am also not a fan of the M&M designs, so I think I really only need the Vermillion squadron, Focker's 1S, and the 1D, that's it... oh and the eventual TV super packs and the GBP.

Same here, but i might not even get fastpacks. I just want Kakizake and Roy's. I do have a very soft spot for the DYRL 1S, maybe because of the Jetfire colors. [yes they are inverted i know] A 1D would be so boss!

Correction: i do like the M&M livery. I have a set in every scale.

I keep telling myself I'll limit myself, but then I keep falling for every pre-order.  I really do want a VF-1D and VT-1, but I might stop before getting M&Ms with this series.

Is it wrong that I actually want a YF-21 more??  I mean don't get me wrong... I want it ALL... but yeah...  Guld is a crazy mofo.

Funny you should mention Jetfire, because I got hooked to Macross when it started airing in 1982 (at least 2 years before Transformers), so to me the original toy is the Takatoku Valkyrie.  It wasn't until a few years later when I saw jetfire being packaged as an autobot transformer, complete with a blunted nosecone, and so found it quite hard to understand the fandom for this autobot toy design.  I guess it really depends on which one you come across first.

Hopefully it will be shown and will see any announcements of the long awaited HMR updates

I do have the DX YF-19 Full Set on display and it's just fitting that the DX YF-21 should follow up.

Isamu and Guld battle continues in the display case. ;)

which is the preferred site to PO. Amiami, NY, or CDJapan?

The one that doesn't crash when you click on it.. :diablo:

That's my final answer.

I think we have different preferences for a number of retailers based on prior experience, but for something as high in demand as a DX release, I would suggest that you register/login to as many reliable online merchants as you can, well before 3am, and keep an eye out for any alerts in this post.
