    You need to find out what they go for on YJA to get a realistic estimate of value...

    Ebay is most likely too high....Mandarake will be a distorted estimate (lower than actual market price most times), esentially Mandarake dictates their own prices based on what they are willing to pay for the 2nd hand items being purchased by them (which by default will always need to be less than market price in order for them to make a profit)...however, it will give you a quick and dirty estimate, if you purchased the items you are selling at MSRP or less, you should be fine and depending on the item, should make a profit on the sale...as with the market price derived from YJA, all you would need to do is add international shipping from Japan to the estimated price...

    Go to the first post of this thread for a quick guide on how to figure out the YJA market prices for practically any Japanese collectible, including Macross items...do a search for something like "HMR VF-1J"...once you find a sample of the item you are searching....copy the Japanese auction listing's title for better results...such as for Max VF-1J or Milia VF-1J....Good Luck!

    Tks man, but I’m in the UK and Yahoo Auctions are blocked for me.

    Welp, I've bought nearly every Sheryl and Ranka figure since 2008, so why stop now. :unknw:

    Perhaps cos the Shibuya Scramble ones will cost you a kidney or two?! XD

    I had already given up on this, but I just noticed one of my favorite European stores has it listed as well by now. https://hobbyfrontline.com/product/dx-chogokin-vf-25-messiah-valkyrie-worldwide-anniv/

    So I’m happy I didn’t get through on any of the local Japanese sites ‘cause now I won’t have to pay tax and custom fees and shipping costs are just 15 € 😃.

    Thank you so much for this link! This preorder completely passed me by. Glad to support an Irish store too!!

    I mean, I'd be thrilled to see a VF-22 done, but the other 262s are long overdue.

    This. (Continues to wait impatiently and without hope)

    Anyone get any response from HLJ besides the initial email?

    Edit: Looks like the listing got pulled from Amazon Japan.

    I got a response saying yes we are aware of the issue and are working with Arcadia as to how best to fix, please don’t ship from your private warehouse as your item may be affected, we’ll get back to you. 

  7. I emailed HLJ as mine is in private warehouse. I asked if they would check my SV for the defect before shipping.  I’ll be damned if I’m paying shipping AND import tax TWICE just to get a “good one”. 

  8. Aw man, I'm going away next week for 2 weeks so i didn't want to ship mine (to the UK) incase it gets stuck in transit (customs) while I'm away. Can't wait to get my hands on this beast. Need a new detolf just for it by the looks of it ;p

    Patience my young Padawan.... Give it at least two business days and Amiami will give you the shipping invoice with the tracking number.

    Patience? What’s that?! ;) 

    You were right though. All paid up and on the way now!

    Got my preparation notice from NY too. Which means it might ship tomorrow, or it might ship a month  Or a year from now. Who knows with NY. :unknw:

    Fixed that for you :p
