Don't forget this is Round 1 with NY. They usually do a Round 2 or 3 with higher markup.

I guess 3ok or 32k from them once they refresh the product page for Eva 02

This type of resell game is toxic in most hype items such as sneakers/Supreme. once people realize there's a buck to make, they will do anything to make it.

I get why Bandai would want things to sell out. Shelf warmers have a knock-on effect as people think it's less desirable; even if they had wanted to purchase it, seeing it available makes it less so ironically. But obviously they should make a bit more regardless as there's clearly a market for them. Sigh.

Just popping in to say I was able to secure one at HLJ, but am scouring the rest of the sites for a link to post here for you guys who still have had no luck.

Yea you guys say that... but NY will probably sell that out then a 3rd one comes with a mark up again.

it's weird that it's still available, but it is the official site of bandai's official US distributor, so I'd think it was legit.

That's a good price with only $6 shipping. Might end up cheaper than the Japanese shops after shipping.

They charged me tax (I'm in CA), but it was still cheaper than NY.

They are the official US distributor for Bandai in the US. 
I've visited their office a few times. The online shop is just very lacking and have low customer support.

Bluefin has to be the domestic release, so expect a dec/jan shipping date

Thanks for posting that bluefin link @anime52k8

 

Yes, thanks anime52k8 for posting that link! Got mine, got charged 19 bucks for tax since I live in CA, but at least I got one without paying for NY's nor Nin-nin's jacked up scalper pricing!

Bluefin will def be a later shipping date. They need to receive containers of the items by sea freight. 

 

still in stock, seems fishy. perhaps this is glitch.

It would be awfully weird since they do upfront payment
