WTF From Japan canceled my order. And I ordered as soon as it was available.

Mine then is a matter of time. Sigh.

 

Edit: frakk. Got the cancellation

Even TWE items are a goddamn PO headache now. Thanks a lot, Bandai!

I just asked a friend in Japan to order me a set.

Yup, cancelled as well.

And this is why I absolutely don't want DX Chogokin P-Bandai stuff. It's more trouble to order than the actual retail release valks.

Tried placing an order via a second proxy, we'll see how that works.

NY had over a month to ship my VF-4 before Japan Post suspended services to the USA. And they just sat on it.

I got my money back through Paypal, bought it off Amazon for slightly less with shipping, and it was at my door within a few days.

After my current orders are fulfilled I'm looking forward to making a new N-Y account for each item I potentially need to buy from them in the future. Just in case I need to revert charges, which will lead to my account being likely banned.

Nice, I assume you put in your order right as the listing went up?

Ok, WTAF.. they cancelled your orders before most shops even listed them.

This is truly some kind of bizarro world at this point.

FromJapan is a proxy, not a store.

We placed a request for them to purchase the items on our behalf, and they reached the limit to how many they could order.

I'm sure Nippon Yasan (and others) will put it up eventually, but I always prefer proxy to NY.

They even cancelled you?..  I requested FP right after I post the link here.  I guess every second counts now ,even on TWE items.

Yup, I suspect FromJapan only has a small number of (maybe just 1) accounts with P-Bandai they order from.

Quantity per account limit looks to be 6.

With cancelled FJ orders is it worth placing again to hope another buyer can secure it, or is the offer over?

The item isn't sold out on the P-Bandai website, so you just need to find another seller or proxy.

I was checking out the live stream,  and then borrow over the p-bandai site to check for more info on the super since they did not list it on their other site.

Saw it listed, came back here and post the link with pics. and then requested order at FJ.  So maybe around 12:10?

I think I put in my order when the link post here was about 4min old?

Nin Nin might be your secondary chance, but you know the risks guys.

I just pre-ordered with Nin-Nin-Games.

I'm gonna get a 2nd with Big In Japan....just in case (when/if it's available).

Take @drobo's heed.

So with this even over, when's the next big Tamashii event? Looking forward to seeing if they made any updates to the YF-21 and any other potential releases.

@no3Ljmchanging shipping method will help if and only if they respond to you. They are also affected by pandemic.

For the record,SAL is not an option. People are either downgrading to Ferry or upgrade to EMS, Airmail or third party.

Due to the pandemic,  and the suspension of Air services from Japanpost to the USA.   You will need to upgrade to UPS or downgrade to Ferry to get it shipped out.    Or wait it out until Japanpost resumes regular service .

For A-E.  they do not offer much alternative options at all so some member just have A-E ship it domestically to their Tenso japanese address and then use Tenso(proxy) to ship it to usa.

Thanks for this guys. I'll try to submit ticket to upgrade my order then. :hi:

These very reliable at all?  I might drop an order with them.

I've bought from them before. No problems so far, though I haven't bought much from them yet.

I downgraded my NY SSP order to Ferry a couple weeks ago, hoping that would nudge them along. They obliged and gave me a store credit for the shipping cost adjustments, but I haven't got a notice about any further prep.

Might just wait on the TV Super Parts to appear in the wild at the end of the year.

Got mine from Okini as well, my FJ order is still pending but expecting it to be cancelled. 

Same exact thing happened with the 1A Kakizaki PO, FJ cancelled and then got it from Okini. :lol:

Hey, that actually ends up cheaper than FJ once you include their 700 yen fee. Yay.

yup... it's a good price from a good store.

They seem to be pretty reliable so far.

Same, item still has not shipped, making think they don't have any in stock and are biding their time.
