  1. I honestly couldn't even speculate on why they won't release the Blu-rays for all of these concerts. Japanese companies do so many things that make little to no sense. Regarding the 40th, they will absolutely have a concert. You should plan to make the trip if you can. I wanted to go to the Frontier concert that is finally happening soon, but I can't for obvious reasons.
  2. Send me offers, I want my space back. Thanks!
  3. I went for Day 2. Here's the setlist: https://web.archive.org/web/20190628172046/https://aniuta.co.jp/contents/247250 The setlist was not announced in advance that I know of, but nobody expected Day 1 to be much different from Day 2. Yes, Kasahara was there and did "Love you again" from Macross II. Akino Arai and Yoko Kanno did not perform (sadly). I don't recall if they stopped in to say hi. I think Yoko Kanno MAYBE did? It was a couple years ago and I was extremely tired at the time (I literally arrived two hours before the concert started and I missed Ai Ijima's entire set because there was a delay at immigration control). Some of the details are fuzzy. Even though I wanted to see Ijima, I was honestly most excited about Fire Bomber (despite really not being a fan of 7 at all) and Sheryl (May'n). I got what I wanted, it was totally worth it lol. I even enjoyed Walkure even though I couldn't care less about Delta. The stupid part is, there has to be a recording because they simulcast it in theaters... I wish they'd just let us buy it already.
  4. You need to be careful with peroxide and painted or glossy surfaces. It will almost always damage or ruin the finish. This is really best used on "bare" plastic, or plastic where the color is mixed into the plastic itself (i.e. not painted on). It will also most certainly damage or ruin any decals.
  5. It seems like these are rarely released for purchase. Unfortunate. I was there and would love to relive this someday.
  6. I took it out once and had it in battroid mode nearly the entire time. Never used or touched any of the other contents of the box. Might be some wear on the outside of the box. Doesn't feel loose or anything like that to me, but I also didn't handle it very much so YMMV on that point. I make no guarantees beyond "it's not broken". $300 SHIPPED in CONUS. I can ship to other locations for more money. I take PayPal F&F, Zelle, ETH, Venmo (as personal payment). I can take PayPal or Venmo as "Goods" if you add 4% to cover the fees. PM ME. I don't actively monitor my threads. Thanks!
  7. SAL/Surface has been available for quite some time (to the US, anyway). I wouldn't expect Air Mail or even EMS to come back online until Japan reopens to tourists; as others have pointed out, those packages are heavily reliant on commercial airline traffic to move them back and forth.
  8. Ended up getting one thanks to no3Ljm! You the real MVP.
  9. I'm dumb and kept kicking the can down the road, then everyone stopped taking orders. Oops. Anyone got one for me to buy? Can also trade a boxed VF-4G (original release, transformed one time, always kept out of the sun) plus cash for it. Send me a PM! Thanks!
  10. Shop is still down, huh?
  11. Imported a bunch of these from Japan, ended up not needing some. Figured I'd offer them here at cost before I try to sell them elsewhere. Keep in mind that, due to the size of these cases, I paid shipping weight by volume from Japan, and it wasn't cheap. :P Send me a PM if you're interested. SNW-180 Acrylic Display Case $150 shipped 80% UV CUT (this filters out ~80% of incoming UV rays that could yellow or otherwise damage your display pieces) Inner Dimensions: 239mm x 172mm x 172mm Outer Dimensions: 300mm x 180mm x 180mm SNW-225 Acrylic Display Case $220 shipped 80% UV CUT (this filters out ~80% of incoming UV rays that could yellow or otherwise damage your display pieces) Inner Dimensions: 347mm x 213mm x 219mm Outer Dimensions: 353mm x 225mm x 225mm
  12. Wow, thank you! Will give that a try. Kind of rolling the dice because they can refuse entry/kick you out if they think or can prove you bought scalped tickets, but whatever!
  13. I realize I might be barking up the wrong tree, seeing that most of the members here don't live in Japan, but... anyone know any other avenues for getting tickets? A friend and I entered the lottery but we were unsuccessful. Buying event tickets on the secondary market in Japan is difficult to say the least, and is generally frowned upon and will soon be illegal (as of June 8th of this year). Fingers crossed!
  14. Bump for X-Mas price drop.
  15. SOLD for $315 SHIPPED Paypal send as friends/family (aka "Gift") or add 4% to cover fees. I also accept Square Cash (no fees!) or BTC at the current Coinbase rate. Not looking for trades at this time, sorry. Please send a PM if you have any interest. I don't monitor my sale threads.
  16. The reason those armor pieces ended up splotchy is because of uneven application of the creme solution and/or inconsistent exposure to UV. My recommendation based on extensive attempts at de-yellowing is: don't do it If you insist, I would: Buy a container large enough to fit the parts; line it with tin foil Buy a UV lamp/bulb. UV light strips work even better since you can mount them inside the container easily If the parts are small enough to submerge easily, use liquid solution, and not the creme For larger parts, use a brush to apply the creme, then place the parts inside the container Turn on UV light, walk away for a few hours ??? Hopefully it comes out the way you expect

    This is correct - that is standard practice for Amazon JP shipments. Also worth pointing out almost no third-party sellers on Amazon JP ship outside of Japan, so if you are buying directly from Amazon JP, you are either buying a product carried by Amazon JP, or you are buying a product supplied by a third-party seller which is fulfilled by Amazon JP.

    His location says he is in Japan, so presumably he'll just walk into a local retailer and buy one.

    Not too bad, it's the usual bullshit that comes with the complexity of the design of some of the toys in this hobby. Not sure what that other guy was on about with the broken head laser, 'cause I haven't read that at all, but it ranges from broken tail fins / vertical stabilizers, issues with the wings, some shoulder and chest complaints... I feel some of it is not knowing how to properly transform the toy, but a lot of these guys seem to have the Advance as well, which makes me think it's an actual QC issue... we'll see. I wouldn't freak out just yet. Regarding returns... I think you're probably SOL, I don't think most vendors (aside from Amazon) would accept returns. I ended up purchasing a second one just in case I end up with a lemon out of the box.

    Lots of complaints on JP Twitter about various QC issues. You can currently buy through Amazon JP for around 31K yen, with 1200 yen shipping to the USA. Be sure to purchase from a seller offering Prime shipping / fulfilled by Amazon, as other offers will not ship to the USA.

    If you have a credit card that has no FTF, pay N-Y in JPY, and use the slowest JP Post shipping option, you can get it for ~$285 USD delivered.

    Rakuten orders are being canceled because the sellers won't ship overseas. Your best bet is to use a forwarding service, such as Rinkya or Shopping Mall Japan if you are willing to pay the forwarding fees, on top of the reseller markup. Personally, I'm not willing to risk paying even more later if I'm not able to get one, so I bit the bullet and got one from Amazon JP using a forwarding service. Amazon orders can be canceled through the end of August, which I am comfortable with, just in case I end up finding one at retail.
  23. This is correct, the photo with Macross The First looks to be fake. The poster with BGC and Mospeada is genuine, as folks who were in attendance took photos of it at the booth, including Yacopu, who posted it to Twitter.
  24. No, I don't see anything like that in the tweets. Re: Sentinel's company name in Kanji, it's Ateji which is why it can be confusing to read.
  25. No indication that it is limited based on those tweets. Also no indication of a release date. He does say that this version transforms differently than the previous version (Beagle I guess?) in that the armor wraps around the rider from below like the anime. Should be interesting to learn more about this one!
