  1. Although they are still putting new items everyday, the site is becoming buggy (mostly pic pbs and removal of any ways of communication with them). Not sure what I would do personally if I still had a coupon? Probably wait until there's something I truly wanted. On the other hand....it's not that difficult to find stuff to buy, I'd more than likely end up using it ( in case they go bust or something...)
  2. With that said, seems people are still willing to take the risk as not long ago the DX VF-1D& Fan Racer was put back on preorder with immediate payment requested...And well, people still took the chance. I'd missed out on it but not willing to get stressed out with them until/if they ever get their sh*it together, even though I did eventually receive my stuff, it was stressful af....Not to mention the impossibility to contact them whatsoever via ticket, live service or phone....
  3. Sorry...late reply....Yeah, it was on website that specialises in selling accounts, such as video-games accounts, YouTube Channels, Instagram accounts, Twitter etc etc. As to why he was even on this site to begin with...go figure. But it's the same guy. He's the CEO of NY. Not too hard to find as most of his details are online.(he's actually on FB too, although hardly ever uses his account since he created it). You find a lot of stuff with a little digging...
  4. The site seem buggy, (like pics not showing up). Also, their are trying hard to make closed preorders with summer release dates opened again....obviously only with a ' Pay immediately' option. In other words, forget your Paypal refund if anything goes wrong. Even though I've received most of my latest preorders (supa delayed). I'm going to stay clear from NY until they get their sh*t together (or go under). The owner of the company has been banned from some site last November for Paypal fraud, so seems he's not exactly new at this.
  5. Sorry, kind of a double post..(I have already asked on the NY thread, but as it's related to Mospeada/Sentinel. I thought I'd ask here too). Has anyone who preordered their Legioss Zeta from Nippon Yasan received anything yet? Since they've requested the payment, the Zeta has never shown as "in stock". They aren't replying to tickets and I wondered if anyone had received theirs from NY?
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Last year after they took 5 months before finally sending me that (cursed) DX Kairos. I stopped getting any of my DX/Macross stuff from them (I might've gotten the last HMR release from them as I had it preordered but that was it). Yet.... I still ended up preordering that Sentinel Zeta. I wondered if anyone had received their Legioss Zeta as it reminded me too much of the "Kairos situation" (marked as 'unavailable' and never been in stock since release)...I'm starting to have flash-backs...
  7. Just out of curiosity......Has anyone who preordered their Sentinel Legioss Zeta from NY received anything? The item has never shown as 'in stock' since its release. I preordered it on day 1. More than three weeks or so ago they sent me a payment request (I opted for 'Pay Later' when I first preordered it). Paid for it....and well never received anything. (Sent them tickets, no replies, used the live chat several times but it's useless. They always come up with the exact same BS: "We will forward your ticket to our team as a priority"....yet they have never replied. Anyways, just wanted to know if anyone had received theirs yet....When will I ever learn to stop using NY...*Sigh*

    Also, if you mix & match the 2 HMR VF-4G, you can have the 'proper' Flashback version.... I was starting to regret having paid upfront for it but NY are now sold out...(not that it means much with them), but they didn't add some more stocks at an inflated price as they usually do. Maybe closer to the release date...or tomorrow for ¥12k

    Reading some of the comments regarding the paint scheme for the upcoming VF-4....Macross lore aside, it looks fine to me, you can still customise the first one to get the 'proper' screen appearance scheme. Heck as far as HMR are concerned they would've released it in apple green, I would've preordered one anyway. Don't want the line to die and will support it as much as possible. Not many toys are fun to play with nowadays. Ex: got that Heavy Metal Action Tetsujin 28... sure it's a beauty, a 2kg + of die-cast insanity. Hands down the best toy I bought this year, but is it fun to 'play' with?. Same with Bandai's Macross Frontiers,Deltas, look good but don't bother transforming them more than 2/3 times, you'll end up with scratches & stress marks everywhere ....Good thing I hardly transform any of my 1/60 VF's. Sure HMR aren't perfect but for the price, you really can't go wrong. (If you followed the line since day one of course, now that they're all in scalper's hands it'll be more expensive for some to get the entire line new factory sealed) So even though Bandai are milking their molds, it's definitely not as bad as Arcadia's f'ckd up prices slammed onto every re-releases with tampo prints all over them. They just do that to stay afloat and pay their staff, otherwise, not sure they'd still be around considering their current price tags and limited 'new' pieces. As far as the Destroids...Where? When? How? Want! That and all the stuff they announced at that 1st HMR display booth years ago. Bring it on, the SDF-1 bridge and VF launchers too while you're at it. I'd pay 2 years in adavance upfront if they want ... Anyway, just my 2 cents, don't bite my head off, and a lime green 4G would most definitely kick ass right?...right...
  10. I' miss still not sure what to do regarding those Bandai 1/48s. Picked up the 1-J when it came out and love it, but like many I own a lot of the 1/48 Yamato oldies and in Fighter mode,on display in the midst of many of other stuff, they look fine...Also, it would spare some extra $$$ to get non-Macross related stuff that I also collect. On the other hand those Bandai's are a joy to pose.....A bit big to play with on your desk, but cool nonetheless....here's an old pic with some Yammies and the lastest Bandai I took a while back (might've posted it already...if so my bad)...At a glance, you could barely tell them apart.

    Picked one up at NY. Didn't even know this was up on po. Truly want them to continue with the line, so will support anything HMR Macross related (and for completion's sake of course....) Personally I think it looks good, makes a change from the usual VF-4G schemes. I only have the 1 Yamato Ver and the HMR release, might as well get another one....

    Would be such a shame.....Like many here, I love the playability of the HMR....Excellent fiddling about figures....'Piuuu Piuuu, Whoooshh"....
  13. As far as the Yammies are concerned they're pretty much exactly the same as any other 1/60. The VF-0D on the other hand does seem slightly smaller to me.

    That 2019 Tamashii Nations poster doesn't show any HMR though? The one on the poster is a 1/48. Are there truly more HMR releases planned? Feels like Bandai are now just starting all over with their 1/48 line,personally aside from the usual suspect Elint/Ostrich in 1/48....(.a 1/48 VF-4 would be amazing too...) it'll be a miss. Got the 1st one as I had preordered it, it's great and all, but not sure I need more VF-1s in my overcrowded Macross cabinets. Rambling...regarding the HMR, any official announcements regarding the line continuity? They teased us with so many unreleased pieces, shame really, great line to fiddle around with on you desk.
  15. Congrats to all. It will be a miss from my part though.Too many non-Macross stuff on my to-get lists , and Arcadia's prices are getting ridiculous (essentially for revised re-releases). Anyways, was tempted, but on display my 3 Yammies still look the part and holding on perfectly fine as I never or hardly ever transform my Valks (HMR being the exception...).
