OK, that's just plain stupid, do they really think they could get away with that?

If my bank calls me about my nin-nin order maybe I should go ahead and let them cancel it. Really don’t like supporting that company

I though NY would have some when I woke up but I see nothing! Is this the worst DX VF-1 preorder thus far? Sad to miss out on the one I really wanted, but glad I don't feel like a walking zombie before a long distance drive.

If my bank rejects it, I won't bother disputing it, I'll just get it elsewhere. Even if I have to pay more.

If this one from Bandai pulls that crap, or anything else equally ridiculous, I'll just stick to my fighter mode only Calibre Wings Roy 1S and never look back.

I feel that way about my '60 V2 Roy.  I have it parked beside my '60 YF 19 and 21; even if the DX Roy is perfect it's not going to take the place of the V2 just because of the issue of scale...

LOL, if it ends up being a POS, I'll just get a used 1/60 V2 used here or elsewhere and not bother since I'd like to have at least one PT version of Roy's 1S.

Yeah I’m leaning that way if it happens. Would be more comfortable doing that and if N2 wanted to ban me from the site or something then frankly all the better

I guess they thought "Oh crap, we don't have anymore Roy's, lets substitute a used Hikaru instead!" Even then, that's still hard to believe anyone would think that would fly. Pun intended. :p

Not to mention that the preorder was still up last I checked.

Mine went through fine - I've ordered from Nin-Nin before in the past and had no issues or bad experience - they've delivered me both Max DX Vf1a and Chuck V31e in the past on time and in great packaging. Unlike previous times, they didn't do an early release for this PO. 

I only didn't have time to apply my vouchers and choose the best PAYPAL method but hey, whatever it takes to secure an order in the heat of the moment right?

Aye, as long as we actually GET the damned thing when it comes out.

Wtf is a paypal exchange fee? Paypal converts on its own.

i have raised a ticket with them and even used facebook to report this. but nothing from them. not sure where they are based tbh

what a great day :( 

They're in France?  Also, why would the price go up?  None of this makes any sense...

I kinda raised my eyebrows at the Paypal exchange fees too, but said frakk it, as long as I get what I ordered, I wasn't in the mood to argue with the ongoing pre-order bloodbath happening all around me.

Daggone, worst pre-order ever, this is the first time I've failed one.  Me and the wife had six sites open on two devices, Ami Ami froze, got cartjacked at Amazon.jp, and the other four failed.  I literally watched Rakuten instantly go from no order button to sold out between my ~2 second interval refresh clicks.  Should have tried Yodobashi, forgot about that one.  However, got a small lead on reserving an in-store copy via phone on 1 November...

If anyone's interested in my previous (relevant) GIF contribution to this thread, go to my profile and look at my post from June 4, 2019, you won't be disappointed.

Was this the first DX since Hikaru's J that had heavy advertising by Bandai?  Cant remember if Max A or Hikaru S had that.

LOL. It's too late to regret now, just see about getting another preorder that will let you pay later in the mean time to hedge your bets, that's what I'm trying to do. Worst comes to worst, we buy once at inflated prices and cry once and chalk it all up to experience. :lol:

You're right.  Either way, we will win in the end.  Its just the matter of how we win and get what we want...

Well I'm awake and about to head to the gun range. Wow, what a sh*tshow last night. Tried on my phone on home Wifi as it is faster, but still got absolutely nowhere with AmiAmi, CD Japan, HS, or HLJ. I never even saw a pre-order button. I was trying for about 25 minutes at which time HLJ was saying Error 404 and AmiAmi just flat wouldn't load. The others just always showed Sold Out form 2:00AM on.  Oh well, I saved $200+. Wasn't dying to have it anyway.  I kinda knew that getting the 1J might very well end up being the ONLY DX I would ever get at retail, which is fine. Whatever.  

On another note, I would like, someday, to fly to Japan and punch Bandai's Director Of Marketing dead in the nose just one time, for all of us. 

Peace out.

You'd have to pull his head out of his ass first though, just saying.

Yeah, I'd be interested in seeing a NIN NIN thread on release day. Really worrying how they kept reopening pre-orders with escalating prices and hearing about other shady practices. 

Hopefully all us NIN NIN folk will experience smooth transactions but I'm expecting a big R.I.Pineapples... :unsure:
