Looks like it's been delayed till January: 

 

No word on the Perfect Finish.

Well, shoot. The one upside is that my wallet gets a small break now. Between the DX Roy release that just happened and the DX VF-1D PO coming up at the end of the month, it could use a small break.

Yup. I think I really need to make new ones. :rolleyes:

Might as well blame NY for it too. I’m sure the old CEO sneaked into the factories and took all the stock so he can sell them for twice the MSRP back to Arcadia two months after the original release date. 

Now you're coming around!:lol:

Now it's early February? They just got done telling us that it was going to be January. Well, I guess my wallet is safe for another month. :unknw:

Technically, it'll still be a January release/delivery for Japan residents.

I reckon the Feb dates are based on DHL's US-delivery.

That's just Amazon. I checked Arcadia and there's no new update on their site nor their Twitter feed. The last one is just said late January. So I'm pretty sure Amazon is just moving a day or two to accommodate the item and have them shipped out. Or it's just Amazon's delivery estimate for us in the states and not the actual release date in Japan.

I'm actually excited for this release but then I'm also very glad everytime they move the release date. More time to save. ;)

That makes sense. I usually ship my "won't ship internationally" stuff from AJ to Tenso and then have them ship to me, so my brain went right to it being a domestic delivery estimate, not an international one. HLJ adjusted their estimate about a week ago, from December to January, so it sounds like this is just AJ catching up to everyone else. If Arcadia hasn't said anything publicly, we're probably good. And it makes my wallet happy, too.

My job had me discussing COVID and supply chain difficulties with someone the other day and he clued me on to an issue he's been running into:

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-global-shipping-container-idUSKBN28K0UA

Apparently, his factory has loads of goods built but they can't get the items shipped because there aren't any boats to put the items on. From the sounds of it, this crunch is really slamming all the smaller toy manufacturers with toys that were supposed to be released in January sliding to maybe March. I can't say it's impacting Arcadia but it seems likely. If not them, expect to hear some news of delays for other toys you may have preordered.

That's sad to hear. But I really don't mind the wait. The longer they're going to release it, the more time my credit card can be mended.

I'm a patient man. :rolleyes:

I got an email from CDJapan today. They said that the regular release is currently delayed to January. I guess we'll see if that remains true.  :unknw:

It's been like that for 2 months now. Regular release was moved to January. But no words if the Premium one is also being pushed back.

I'd just assume.  The push back is almost entirely due to manufacturing slow downs and the Premiums will take even longer to finish because of the additional labor involved.

I am wondering if it's a good idea to keep my preorder with Nippon Yasan for the Premium finish version...it seems like their situation is getting worse and worse everyday...I haven't paid for it since it's an Arcadia exclusive but i am scared they won't deliver anyway. Do you guys know of any other place where they still have their pre-orders open?

Interesting article, thanks for the link! In the end, only two items from an initially huge December AmiAmi order ended up shipping on time for me. We'll see how many of the ones that got pushed to January will still ship that month. It's pretty crazy; delays seem to be hitting pretty much every manufacturer.

Hmm, so still a chance to get one of these.  I haven't had anything new for Macross in years.  Would still hope for another take at YF-21/VF-22 again, if not VF-11 (always kicking myself for never getting a Yamato VF-11C).

I'm thinking about maybe snagging the regular edition.   My last new valk was the 31C.     

I'm seeing very few differences between PF and regular---asides from panel-lines, like slightly different rescue warnings on the nose, and by the main gear doors?  I'm thinking I can just panel-line it myself, and have it be 99% of the way towards being the PF edition.   Am I missing something, or is it really just "panel lines, and like 2 small tampo prints"?  
 

I couldn't find good fighter-mode pics to compare, GERWALK seems to be the only ones where they took same pics same angle, for regular and PF.

Thanks for reminding me of the last idiot who resided in the White House before the current outgoing one! :drinks:

There was another idiot in the WH before that one. Makes you wonder about all of us though when we’ve allowed so many idiots to “lead” us.

Annnnnd, there was another horrible one after that that one/ before the current outgoing one. And the current incoming one. What do you think the chances of someone terrible in 2024?:lol:

I kinda wanted to pick up the reg version just to have it in hand as I’m excited about this release. Prob won’t do that now unless the premium gets pushed back.

Back on track though: do we expect the release to be at the end of the month? [barring any further delays?]
