Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

Okay fixed my Ami Ami address.

This whole preorder process is going to give me a nervous breakdown.

I also recall that once the scalpers purchased a ton of the stock they started to have listing wars on price on the VF-1S Hikaru. I think I saw a few at about 24500 before all was said and done

24.5k is not a terrible mark-up... so for those who didn't get lucky with the PO, your best bet is to look on Mandarake or YJA the first couple of days and snatch one at around that price range if you can.

I was also surprised CDJ went down to zero so fast. 
 

I scored the Voltes V DX, so at least I don’t feel like I wasted the journey tonight.  And now to refresh the HLJ 404...:)

Remember when CDJapan would get like 100 of a new item and if you were ready, and someone gave you the link, you would see they were going down and in like 5 more minutes they'd be sold out? Those were the good ol' days.

Yeah that was what it was like during my first PO, the YF-19 FSP.  The DX VF-1J was also a breeze compared to this one.  Amiami didn't crash, and even allowed 2 per customer 

 

Shieet!

I still have 4500pts I am still unable to use coz they've gone HobbySearch-mode during po-nights like this...

I am assuming it did not go too badly.  I just got in an AmiAmi order in. WOOT

Nice congrats. I finally got 1 tonight thanks to gulan!

I think this was a bad PO. I didn't have any luck before his post.

it is somewhat concerning that they appear to have more stock allocation than most of the other sites, and that they are doing this step-increase in prices by the minute.  Makes those of us who got in on the earlier waves feel a bit more risky... oh well.

I was able to add to cart with Nin Nin, but it says:

 

An item in your cart is no longer available in this quantity. You cannot proceed with your order until the quantity is adjusted.

I have never seen Nin nin say anything other than "Coming soon" and I'm quick on the draw. So strange.

After shipping it came out to be 251 if you convert payment via the CC I use. 260 if you use paypal's conversion rate. Too rich for my blood.

Does NY still do multiple batches at successively higher markups or is that the good (bad) old days gone by?

Don't be surprised to get a Nin-nin email on release day saying they didn't get enough stock and offering a store credit... only to sell more units a week later at a super-inflated price.

Not a terrible markup. That's what my total was, with shipping to the states, when they first opened up. Almost guaranteed to be lower than whatever NY is going to post when they open up their second round.
