For those that ordered through Nin Nin and received a shipping notice, but haven't seen any progress, my package is officially in the hands of FedEx and is on the way. No delivery date yet, but is is finally moving.

Did you get it through a 3rd Party that ships via Amazon Global? Or was it direct from Amazon? If 3rd Party, it can take up to like a week before it ships, so no need to be alarmed.

I think they were all third party??? I have a couple coming from AJP. I'm not worried. I've had them sit in pre shipping for, like you said, about a week.

Well, a bunch of us (including me) got them direct from AJ during pre-order madness in July. So, I just received mine from AJ today. (Got one from HLJ that hit the States and should arrive tomorrow).

So, it depends on where @Toonz got his from on AJ. If it is direct, then it could be slightly alarming though still wouldn't worry. There have been problems for a handful of people on the AJ direct ones this time around.

yep-that just looks awesome, thanks!

The black heat shield is definitely my personal preference, as incorrect as it may be.

I like the black as well. 

On the DX, it gives it a less cartooony look maybe, I can't really place it, but I like it.

My safety Roy VF-1S order from Anime Export was originally slated to arrive Wednesday and now promises to be in my hot little hands sometime today.  My July pre-order to Nin-Nin Game, I'm still waiting to hear something.  Their support folks said this week sometime, but I know others have already seen some movement.

How do you get one from HK?

You will need to ask someone that lives in HK to buy it for you and then ship it over to the USA.

There's not that many HK store sites that offer Macross items for a good price anymore.

Is there an end to this?  I just dropped $314 for Roy.  Max cost me $250.  Kaki and Hikaru was $280 each.  Now $314 for Roy?  I honestly don’t know how to feel about this.

The answer is "NO END TO THE MADNESS". You have already fallen down deep into the rabbit hole and you can't climb back out. 

Or... 

Don't get any more DX Macross stuff and save your $$$.

Not sure how long you have been collecting Macross, but if you have been in it since 1982....you should know it never ends...

Expect a new VF-1 in about 5-10 years...start saving now!
