Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

I wanted at least one. And maybe a back up. So I tried for eight. I ended up getting five. So, I'm going to have some for sale.:p

Zenmarket canceled my order and now the money is showing in my account. I haven't looked at and T&C's or messaged them yet. Anyone know if I can get that money back from them and on my card or did I just lock myself onto a Zenmarket purchase?

FJ failed me too.

Overall I'd call that a successful first PO.:good:

I'd get a backup from somewhere else if you ordered from Mykombini. It's a crap shoot whether or not they deliver. I've had them cancel an item right before release date before, and for a far less in-demand web exclusive so I was able to just buy it elsewhere.

I personally wouldn't put all my eggs in the Mykombini basket for something like this.

Also, Roy available for 27k at Mandarake Nakano.

Max for 23k.

Don’t forget that not only did MyKombini cancel those VF-31A orders, they also gave the reason that they didn’t have the stock and then relisted the item the next day at a much higher price. That puts them down to the lowest of the low in my book.

Well, dammit.  I haven't heard boo from FJ (where I've ordered 2) or Big in Japan (where I've ordered 1).  I'm guessing the Big in Japan one went through since they posted more inventory well after I'd put in my order but I was hoping to know if my FJ order had fallen through or not so that I could try and get one more, if needed.  Looks like I'll be glad I ordered the "just in case" 1D from BiJ so, hopefully, at least I have one.  But, since I haven't heard from either of them....who knows?  Would have been nice to know I'd secured one before I went to bed.  Oh, well.  Such is my luck.  Congrats to those that have confirmed.

Not sure if somebody already noticed or posted about it, but  since I just recently put Roy-1S into fighter-mode for the FPs, I just noticed that the head is not quite as flushed like the Hikaru-1S.

As in, the visor is more exposed on the Roy-1S whereas it's more hidden on the Hikaru-1S.  Maybe it's due to the new thicker neck or maybe I'm doing something completely wrong.

At any rate and not sure if ABP, but seems OptimusPrimeSG (CharlesXavier here) has posted his review of his Roy with the TV-FP:

I hope we can have more stock soon, but not sure.

Can you get stock directly from Bandai, or do you have to order from the p-bandai website?

Well the good (not good?) news is the next two releases will almost certainly be regular releases... so we can all spend those evenings cursing the people who now use those shoe-buying-bots at our retailers.

I think those are the same sneaker bots that were deployed, to devastating effect, for PS5 preorders. They seem to be everywhere now.

FYI: MyKombini is now sold out for the 1D

From Japan refunded me :(

I only saw one person so far that secured a copy from FJ. 
 

I’ve used From Japan for years but haven’t scored a TWE from them in a very long time. 
 

Time to start testing other proxies.

Happy Holidays folks! Ordered my VF-1D through Anime Export, and did a backup through Lunar Park, just in case.

Anyone on the fence about Lunar Park, they are great to deal with and have great shipping and customer service.

Merry Christmas everyone. Congrats to those who have some copies of 1D secured.

Can't access the p-bandai link (keep getting redirected to their global page), is p-bandai still accepting order?

You can't access the link if you are outside of Japan unless you connect via a proxy server.

Overall, what has everyone's successful proxies been so far that you've gotten a confirmed order from? For reference, I was surprised to see that Buyee did not list Tamashii on their supported sites list. For reference, their supported sites list is linked below.

So MyKombini is relatively early in updating their site now. Usually they're quite late to post new items (usually a few days after), and that somewhat works as an advantage as the PO madness has somewhat dissipated at that time so the item doesn't go out of stock immediately.  FJ secured my VF-1D order (requested it quite early) and was planning to get a second one form MyKombini, but seems it's gone now.

I was able to get the correct page after one or two refresh yesterday, but not today.

mykombini cancelled my VF-31A in the past right on release so they're not ideal

I have been ordering MBs and DX chokogins (regular/TWEs) for two years and no issues so far and they have been timely with delivery (a week at most when they ship the order).

Still working (Canada, and no VPN/proxies). I don't click the refresh button, I just re-paste and reopen the URL after the first one.

Would you mind sharing when you submitted you FJ order? 
 

I haven’t had success with TWE items using FJ for ages.
