So the question I have for the good of the group is:

 

Should I file a claim with PayPal now regarding Nin-Nin Games for the Kaki? I paid on the 25th of March. Just curious. I also ordered a back up on Okini which i have had zero issues with in the past.

 

Thanks all.

Why do anything until you have to? Just sit back, relax and strap on your seat belt.

I ordered my Kaki from NY but I still haven't received my YF-19 DX set that was in stock and paid for July 7th. It's been "preparing for shipment" forever..... I'm not expecting the Kaki for months. I'll be shocked if it ships anywhere near the release date. EMS is working fine in Canada and stuff gets to me from Japan in a week so that ain't the issue. I put a ticket in for the YF-19 because it's been way too long but no reply as usual. :rolleyes::5:

Very nice! I look forward to buying the actual release of this more than any other VF-1 Bandai is likely to make.

That Max VF-1S is incredible, nice work!!!
Have you thought about painting the wheels white? (my only real gripe with the Bandai 1/48)

Instead of the 001 decals coming in the Kakizaki to fix my Movie Hikaru tailfin, I wish they'd swap in some white wheel hubs! :)

That didn't even cross my mind, but you are right. Definitely needs white landing gear.

Awesome work!  This is the kind of creativity that I could never do. 

Thanks!  There is no creativity needed to paint red parts blue, just tons of masking and a steady hand. We have such talented forum members who can really bring these toys to life with weathering and backdrops/dioramas.

At first I assumed you were in the U.S. but you are apparently in Canada. Why are you still waiting? EMS is working great to Canada. I received my super packs and missiles a long time ago from NY.

If you order more than one set, NY shoves you to the end of the line, regardless of when you ordered.

Who knows.  Might get the old lady to just call them, chat with them in Japanese to sort it out

Oh man, I was hoping to debut the DYRL Max like I did with Roy, but you beat me to it by a week or two (I got stuck on paint colors) Well, glad those decals @Anasazi37 and I cooked up are going to good use :) Stay tuned right here to see some 1S Max with weathering in the near future!

Oh, I'm just whetting their appetite for your awesome weathered customs . Some battle damage from his aerial skirmish with Milia would also be epic.

And sorry, forgot to give you props on the decals as well.

I've been away for a while and missed the Roy pre-order (not that I'd have been able to get one).  I'm sure this has probably already been said a bajillion times, but if anyone pre-ordered extra DX Roys, please PM me.  Ebay scalper preorders are already going for $460!!!  I did get a VF-1S Hikaru just in case so I could repaint it and get a 3D printed Roy figure, but I'd rather just have the right one to begin with.  Some sort of trade would be beautiful, but I don't hold out much hope in that.  Thanks guys, and sorry for the absence.  Hope everyone is doing well!

Quite a few of us here were also not able to secure a Roy during PO week, but we're all hopeful for stock availability during release week, and historically speaking people were successful with scoring a 1S Hikaru on release week. Fingers crossed.

It was an exclusive, aren't they usually really limited in supply?

It's supposed to be limited, however I think Bandai has made more just to cover unfulfilled pre-orders (don't count on this statment as being correct).

The release order of these has been so bizarre to me. Do we know if they're based on anything...like character popularity or something? Maybe I'm just a fanboy, but the fact that the first 1S we got wasn't a Roy, and we also are getting a Kakizaki before Roy just kind of blows my mind. It's also kind of a funky Mix of TV and DYRL.

Out of curiosity....anybody know what the shipping on this would come out to?  I know it's already sold, but it would be good to know when I'm thinking about buying something, how much I could expect to be paying total.  Their website wasn't too clear about what was available or the cost of what could be available.
