My recent orders that were released were shipped on time by AmazonJP (just a few days after release), at least those that are directly shipped by them. And DHL is still quick to deliver.

As for GSC itself, don't have any recent orders from that that were released, but from what I've read there seems to be some slow down especially for those with Japan Post restrictions. You can check this MFC GSC forum thread: https://myfigurecollection.net/threads.v4.php?mode=view&threadId=5425&page=12#c-87171631

Thanks for the tip @pafy6285! Nice to see that Amazon JP is still shipping things out as expected.

Regarding GS, I've been moving more of my orders to the Goodsmile US shop, but there are still some things that are unique to Goodsmile Global so this is disappointing to see. Oh well. I'll sit tight and see how it goes. Sorry about the minor thread derail there.

There's also some on rakuten for around 27600 yen after the 8% off.

I can't read what that 1D flyer says other than what's in English, but is that saying that the preorder is going to be Christmas Eve?

It is on Christmas Eve and actual time unknown for now. Are you going to try and get a copy via proxy @mantisfists since its a TWE?

I probably will.  I don't know, I'm torn.  The Christmas Eve thing sucks for me.  That day is essentially Xmas for me since I'm on shift the 25th and 26th.  Taking time away from my wife and daughter so that I can preorder this thing just feels wrong.  

 

 Is it confirmed that it's a TWE or is that what's being concluded from somebody joking that the Minmay figure was going to be a web exclusive?

TWE, they will reveal the figure on the 24th, 25th will be the preorder.

I thought they already revealed the figure earlier this month?  It'll be a relief for me if what you're saying is true, though.

Sorry I check the website again, 25th will be the preorder and it's not written on the banner.

Even if it’s the 24th , it’s Japan Standard Time so it’ll be the 23rd in the USA .   You’ll see more info closer to the 24th .

I'd rather the preorder be on Christmas Day than Christmas Eve, personally.  Since I'll be at work, I'll be available to try and get one (as long as we don't get any calls) and it wouldn't take time away from my family that I wasn't already going to miss.

Yeah, no sense sweating it till more info comes out.  These are first world problems, anyway.  I'm lucky to have em.

samples:

calm matte texture! as per translation...:lol:

First of all, the fighter form reproduces the impressive skull mark and the two-tone line of yellow and black, while the surface treatment has a calm matte texture, giving it a realistic finish reminiscent of the actual machine!

I think the 1D TWE would be a good thing for all, no? No PO madness...and pay up front!

Take that, scalpers! :yahoo:

Still have to compete with retailer proxy purchase limits. 
 

Did everyone easily get their DYRL Kakizaki?

To be honest, I really don't mind. But if you have something specific in your mind to make it more personalize, PM me. ;)

Kakizaki was on AmazonJP for at least a week at very fair pricing after release if I remember correctly.

I personally am not in love with having the 1D. If I get one, cool. If I don't, also cool.

Now where are my Fockers!!!!:yahoo:
