    Hi-Metal R

    Still available at HLJ. Wouldn't it be nice if all the other HM-R pre-orders were like this?! ^_^'

    Same happened to me, I guess AmiAmi does prevent cart jacking? Page said order was closed but I was still proceeding fine with the item in my cart. Edit: n/m... maybe cuz they added more stock for ordering. lol

    Hi-Metal R

    Thanks, been looking to get some Regults - kept missing the pre-order windows. Never used that site before though, anyone else have experience with mykombini.com? I know someone mentioned they had pretty good feedback on eBay (back on Page 58), but I don't see much mention of them on the Net.
  8. Edit 2: n/m... Didn't see the first pic from my phone... lol ^_^'

    Macross figures

    Try to get them on Mandarake - they were much cheaper. Got Sheryl for 8000 yen and Ranka for 6000 yen. Both came in today, took some quick shots too. Definitely wasn't expecting so much "fan service" on these two figures. Guess I've only been looking at them from the front in all the preview photos and never paid attention to what they looked like from behind. lol Very vibrant colours though, definitely liking how they turned out. <3

    Macross figures

    Got my wedding Sheryl figure today, took a couple of very quick shots. Was a little surprised by her weight, a little more than I was expecting with typical PVC figures. The other two (of Sheryl and Ranka) should arrive tomorrow - I think Banpresto did a pretty good job with this new set.
  11. That's the reason I like Sheryl's character...there's much more to her than her appearance, especially the affection she shows towards Alto. Rushing to the hospital, trying to peel an apple for him, trying to cook, reaching her arms out to him at the end of the movie, etc. She's definitely not shallow, as some people have claimed her to be. Edit: Forgot to mention the act of sacrificing herself to save Ranka in the movie! ;-)

    I hope they all end up being Tamashii web exclusives.
  13. I thought AmiAmi prevented cart jacking - if you were able to add it to the cart, it should've been "reserved" until you were able to check out fully (unless you took way too long)? One reason why they seem to go from "Pre Order Soon" to "Pre Order Closed" in a second. I remember getting the VF-25F renewal from AmiAmi, added to cart but then the subsequent pages took minutes to load; in the end I was still able to check out with what I had in my cart though (probably 5 minutes or so in total).
  14. LOL happened to me as well, couldn't log back in to cancel my extra order. Sent HLJ an e-mail explaining the situation, will see what they say. Honestly, didn't see they had a one order limit. ^_^'Edit: Account unlocked by HLJ. Woot!
  15. Yeah, it went by really fast, I didn't even bother reading if HLJ had a limit. I ordered one, then thought maybe I'll order another one and made a separate order. Wasn't trying to bypass the limit on purpose, just changed my mind and decided to get 2 - could always cancel the extra one if I change my mind later... That's what I like about ordering from HLJ. If there is a limit, HLJ will cancel the extra order... guess we'll see. Oops!
  16. Thanks HLJ! Whew... now back to bed!
  17. Usually when the online shop's allocated pieces are "sold out". If you're on the fence, might as well order from HLJ as you can cancel the pre-order any time before the release date, should you need/want to.
  18. Received my Roy today, the packaging was a joke. Helmet was fine though, overall not too bad for the early bird price. There are some minor QA issues such as paint chip, mis-aligned decals. Good thing is, I think the SMS and UN Spacy logos on the side should be able to be removed easily. No more M-911 text on the arrows, though one side is slightly mis-aligned. I got a large, which in essence only meant a smaller padding. I found the overall helmet a bit tight on my big noggin (7 1/2). I thought Masei said they would include multiple padding sizes just in case, but mine came pre-installed with the large only. Edit: Oh yeah, it would've been nice if they had used a black interior liner rather than the red (unless you were getting a Hikaru version). =p
  19. I'm sure someone will ask.... will the decal of the arrow line up properly on the helmets we're receiving? The pre-production sample photos had the side arrows aligned at least...
  20. cool, got an e-mail from Masei: Guess removing the M911 decal is one of the reasons why it got delayed.
  21. Now that we're in November, are there any updates and possibly photos of the Roy and max coloured helmets?
  22. Yes, that is actually what finally clued me in... LOL Guess I just wasn't paying attention to the word "Makuros"... I was just reading SD-style SDF-1 and stopping there.
