If you can't wait to have the strike part on your VF-1S hiki, I have a set for sale in the for sale forum. <end shameless plug>

A lot of people give up on NY. I really don't understand why they are having trouble getting stock for the strike parts. Did they totally over committed. I forget what price they are selling them for. Maybe it is impossible for them to source the item with the current price without make a loss.

NY had been bashed often enough, but I still find it really hard to understand how they can imagine it is ok to run a business this way.

Still, sometime, they are the only place that have item in stock, and I do use them when I feel like gamble.

 

I thought the issue was that they just couldn't ship them due to the JP freeze, not because of a stock shortage.  Did they say something about not being able to fill orders?

What was the price there? Also how did you find the listing? It doesn't show up in their search results.

It was $189.99, it popped up on "recently added" toys

I submitted a ticket recently for the SSP and what they told me was that due to shipping that is y the delay.

 

I also submmited another ticket for a store credit that i suspect has expired as i cant seems to use it or find a place to input the code which they said can. This ticket till no has no reply

Speaking of NY and Extra parts, have they received their Missile sets (June release) yet?

Wondering if i need to email them to get them in gear. It seems the polite mails are working for me. I dunno if that is a fluke or not.

 

 

June of last year right?  I'm still waiting too.  Shot them an email a few days ago, nothing so far.

Me to lose the PO... I be in the loop of death on amiami. when will the exact day be for sale??  I hope can buy one

Release date is last week of November/ first week of December either on Amiami or Manda. Give it a few days in order for the store to get stock in.

Both have DHL if you want it on time for Christmas if the courier services are not overwhelmed with packages and hoping not to get a second wave of what's going on globally. 

Isn't correct to say if we have a crappy summer season, winter is just as bad?

Like others I;ll probably just wait til release date & see if I get lucky with HLJ. Usually you can snag one that day & pretty much at PO price. 

For right now my Yamato's will do nicely. B))

you can go into your account and check if your storecredit or coupon is expired or not.

Also if you have only 1 active credit or coupon, you will see a red (add) button in your cart

I will suggest to everyone who buys stuff internationally that a "travel" credit card is a great investment. Pay it off every month so you pay no interest, use it to charge-back when things don't get delivered, and pay no currency conversion fees.

Especially with companies like NY and Nin-Nin, where the more leverage you have regarding getting your money back the better.

maybe they did not give you the new coupon yet.  and you are looking at your old coupons that is already used or expired 

Your credit should last a year before expiring

That's exactly why I use a "travel" card for these purchases :D

Is a “travel” credit card just a normal credit card that one use for travel? If so how do you not pay currency conversion fee

Cards that lack currency conversion fees are typically marketed as "Travel" cards.

Over time it'll save quite a bit, it's a similar idea to getting a card with high gas rewards and using it only for buying gas.

The key word is "Zero or No foreign transaction fee".  B))

I know my Capital One (and I think every Capital One) has zero transaction fees. It is also Visa verified so you can use it on Mandarake and avoid the terrible conversion rates that happen there with PayPal.

FYI, you can pay through paypal in Yen, you just need to select currency options and turn it back to yen (it will always default to your native currency).

Can you use more than one discount code per order at N-Y? I seem to be only able to add one, kinda sucks. Just gotta find some way to use all the discounts and move on from my account.

I ordered off of ebay 2 weeks ago and the seller has created a shipping label, but still has not given the item to fedex. I asked last week, he said "this weekend". I asked again tonight, he said this weekend.

Should I just cancel this and order off of From Japan for my Hikaru 1S, or wait till the sept 3rd delivery date even though I paid extra shipping after the fact to get the item sooner?

From what we all understand, it takes roughly half a year post announcement before we even get whatever has been announced.

@jenius:  Are you still guesstimating that we'll get a release (whatever it maybe in this case) sometime late January/early Febuary and if we don't blow our gift budget on Christmas presents (if we still do have Christmas this year and our CC doesn't get maxed out)? :unknw:
