Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

I seriously wish bandai would put in a 2 day pre-order window at least, for Macross DX chogokins.

Put in limit 1 or 2 per order and pay upfront to further deter scalpers if needed. 

*grumble grumble*

As someone else mentioned earlier, I really wish they adopted the Good Smile method.

Having a preorder window takes off so much stress and really helps deter scalpers.

The consequence of making toys easier to preorder and less scarce is the risk of shelf warmers AKA Yamato Macross toys and those were already dirt cheap compared to current prices and we still waited for sub ¥10K price sales. :(

Make it too difficult for products to get into consumers hands, and the brand dies at the hands of scalpers.

Unlikely

Cart jacked! Noooooo

Man, that sucks.  I was sure I wasn't gonna make it 'cause I had to create an account as a new customer.  It was probably an extra 30-45 seconds to do so, but that's an eternity in PO madness time.

That's what I was doing - when I got to payment method it said they didn't have enough stock to cover the amount I ordered, which was one lol. So close

Thanks! 

So my next question: how reliable is Plaza Japan?  I've never ordered from there before and I don't recall seeing that store pop-up a whole lot in this thread.

It's amusing that N-Y's scalper price for Hikaru's movie 1S is 2500JPY less. I was expecting at least one more step with Roy before we hit the exosphere. Oh well.

me too, they are crazy

If the consumer can’t experience the product, they will be accustomed to forget abt it. Or live without it so to speak.

Historically speaking I think Bandai has been getting the balance right. Their Macross DX releases never have shelf warmers and we’re all  still gaga about them. 

scarcity fuels desire. :(
