Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Posted (edited)

Just to note:

The current 35k-yen pricing at AmJ is scalper 3rd-party/Marketplace. 

The actual amz-jp direct pricing was 18k-yen.

Try to wait a bit and maybe Amz-Jp direct will do a restock at non-scalper pricing...

 

:touche:

I’m now 2 for 2 with preorder madness got both the 1j and Hikaru 1S at AmiAmi, and failed miserably with the Max and Roy. Still got a max from a kind MW member though.

If the drinking game was everytime someone was cartjacked, I would have polished off a bottle of scotch.  I don't think I can afford this game anymore...:wacko:

Or its possible after effects the next day!

There was lots of it here and maybe not all accounted for.

Not an official count, but only based on impression from following this thread for the last 40 mins, it seems that the success rate for PO has been reasonably high on amazon.jp or nin-nin.

I think HLJ is having issues due to the recent system work.  I get different search results from what was posted above.  Probably a session replication problem.  They should be able to sort it out so look for it later this morning (it will be good for those who did not stay up).

I'd say "reasonably" high for Amazon though it did sell out in less than one minute you could actually go through the links. As for Nin-Nin that lasted seconds both times.

And this is where I, in the past have just waited for either release day or Mandrake. You will find one the day of release for a closer to normal cost 35k is robbery.

Thank you so much! Was able to nab one. Mind me asking how you found the link so quickly?

Good luck to the rest, hopefully HLJ opens soon.

i just typed dx chogokin roy in search fields.  amazon jp server is reliable enough to constant refresh.

Agreed, so thankful I was able to get in an order at MSRP. Still shocked it allowed international shipping and even further still they allowed up to 3. I wanted to pick up 2 tonight, but I just clicked through so quickly in order to secure the PO I didn't know that was possible.

agree - that seems to be the most stress-free back up plan to get one at reasonable after-market prices.  

If it's any indication, again from memory, the first week price ranges on Manda were:

VF-1J = 25000-28000 yen

VF-1A = 23000-25000 yen

VF-1S DYRL (I didn't follow this one on week one.  But i think it went at around 28-30k for a while)
