Ah bunmer, I’ve didn’t know it would go up today. Oh well given how poorly the original F91 did on the aftermarket I’m not to worried about securing one after release.

Just curious about the differences with F91 Chronicle White and the original release. Are the differences only a flat white coat, some tampo printing including stand, and expansion pack that's included with this release. Is there anything else I might have missed?

These were mentioned within the F91 Chronicle White Ver product page as per their english translation: https://tamashii.jp/item/13436/

From the 2017 version, the coloring and marking of the main body has been reconstructed based on the matte pearl that is reminiscent of the impression of those days. The shoulder top parts and movable fin structure have also been partially changed to emphasize the elegant silhouette. For the package, a special sleeve using the sketch drawn by mechanic designer Kunio Okawara during the development of METAL BUILD is prepared. It is a definitive product with optional parts that are equipped with MSV. 

Based on the white of matte pearl, the whole body has been redesigned with the image of the play. 

The package comes with a special sleeve. The special sleeve is a luxurious specification using a development sketch by Mr. Kunio Okawara. 

The silhouette of the flowing shoulder armor and heat dissipation fins, which is one of the features, has been renewed. 

Based on the idea of Mr. Kunio Okawara, Vesber added the expansion and contraction of the barrel and the expansion gimmick of the interlocking rear fins. "Variable speed" is more visually transmitted. 

"Face open", which is a feature of the aircraft, comes with a head that can be reproduced without replacement and a non-deformed head that can be reproduced by replacement.

Why does the price vary so much between the sites? They all have shipping as an additional amount. Any reason not to go with AE?

$277 USD
http://www.anime-export.com/product/49961 

$302 USD
https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-120738

$327 USD
https://www.hlj.com/metal-build-gundam-f91-chronicle-white-ver-bans61067

Set them all to JPY, probably different exchange rates exacerbating it.

HLJ is only ¥31,900

 some sites gives better preorder discounts than others.   

Also A-E is upfront payment while the others can pay later

HLJ have better customer service should something go wrong with your item. their price is 31900 yen  which = $309 USD

Oh god, I can't believe I'm even considering this. Did I miss when the PO for the Mteal Structure Sazabi goes off? Pricing? $900-1000?

No news on MS Sazabi yet. If you have the MS Nu, you're obligated to acquire the Sazabi. lol

I don't have the Nu. I'm just not that into it. I do love me some bad guy Gundam stuff though!

It's working now again. I might cancel mine from HLJ if a domestic order opens up. It might probably end up a bit cheaper.

HLJ is adding japanese sales tax to certain popular items so the price is 10% higher, it’s not that competitive. You can certainly find somewhere offers cheaper deals.

Got the order confirmation from HLJ but the item is limited to 30 units per customer so I assume it is not a valid order and they cancel on Monday.

 

Gto my order too but I'm thinking the same thing about the cancelation

For the new F91, what are the chance of it being sold by Amazon JP or US retailers?

I would say so. It's somewhat featured on the US Tamashii instagram acct. and it's a retail release rather than a web exclusive.

I think the chances to see the F91 in the US are relatively high. I'd look at the usual distributors such as chosen prime, bbts, usagundam, surethingtoys, etc. Both Gundam and Soul of Chogokin are pretty easy to get here at retail price. We just have to wait a little longer.

Since already have the original I really do not need this new repaint F-91.   But I do like the new look more .   I try really hard posting store links hoping it would be sold out ASAP so I will say too myself too bad .  Sold out .   But of all the metalbuild preorders thid one was opened for a long time .   So I still ending up preordering . Lol .

I would say all those tamashii announcements just before preorder might really stole some of the thunder , I mean I totally forgot about it until I got the email alert from cdjapan.

Since this is a standard release, I’m sure USA stores will have it on preorder soon too .
