  3. So... I preordered METAL BUILD GUNDAM DYNAMES REPAIR III from Nippon-Yasan in March. and the result is................................. no issue at all, everything seems normal , just like before.... I waited until the tracking shows up on japanpost before posting this. So it does looks like they are slowly returning back to normal.
  4. pretty good review of the Fan racer and differences between the VF-1 and VF-1D. I like the new foldable panel in the back.
  5. maybe it's the angle or the lenses that's making it look much wider than it actually is. But I waited so long for it, I will probably buy it no matter what. it's not like I will be looking at the back anyways. haha, 😅
  6. I pretty much gave up on the guessing game since it out of my control. .
  7. The vf-31ax is not the same plane as a VF-31J.. different Wings and no thermometer. If you are uncomfortable of spend more then dont. You are only putting alot of money if you are paying the late tax. You just need to try to preorder it or getting it at around release date if you want to spend less money.
  8. If you do decide to ship it to Tenso then ask you friend to pack it good and keep it as safe and small as possible so when Tenso receive it , you can then just ship it out as is without needing them to put it in a bigger box which increases shipping cost . but it will most likely be cheaper to just go with the Yamato's Kuroneko courier service . Since you say it’s cheaper than EMS .
  9. Retailers and Proxy can get discounted DHL /Fedex rate due to the volume that they normally ships out . So when they get charged less , they can then offer to their customers some of the discount. A individual DHL /Fedex will not have those discount so it will be the normal rate which is Arm and Leg $$$. International shipping is not cheap especially when they stop their cheaper slower economy service . there’s also the option of opening a Tenso account and then ask your friend to ship it to your account and then you’ll request to ship it to you like any other proxy.
  10. what about the Hi-metal R Minmay,, did anyone try to put that in?
  11. For those that’s interested in preordering from Lunapark , you can use my referral and get a extra 2000 yen off coupon . Just input your email and they will give you instantly and also email you the same coupon code . http://i.refs.cc/rzQ4pSDi?smile_ref=eyJzbWlsZV9zb3VyY2UiOiJzbWlsZV91aSIsInNtaWxlX21lZGl1bSI6IiIsInNtaWxlX2NhbXBhaWduIjoicmVmZXJyYWxfcHJvZ3JhbSIsInNtaWxlX2N1c3RvbWVyX2lkIjo5MjkzNTM0NDJ9 This will drop the Total shipped price to 27500 yen for the vf-31ax update : price is now 28500 yen before shipping and discount.
  12. On EMS packages, you will normally see another barcode somewhere on the package. It will the the code of the Airline that it was supposedly loaded on.
  13. yeah , moving sucks. I just did that earlier this year. .. label those boxes correctly so you can find them later... or take a phone of all those stuff you will put into that box before taping it. .. and Beware of mover scams..
  14. did your neighbor order 6 vf-1d?
  15. no worries, once you get yours , you will be on the hate list too.
  16. yeah, ver Ka wing gundam for the metal composite line,,, .. I guess it does fit the line but I was hoping for some other gundam too. but I'm will still buy it first and plan later. by the way looks like METAL BUILD Dynames repair 3 is out.
  17. The good Macross products are for Japan so you just need to spend your time on learning and figuring out how to get it from Japan to USA. Yes , you will need to plan and wake up in the middle of the night and "try" to place the preorder , just like everyone else here. If you think your time is worth more, then you can pay the extra to preorder it from a store or someone that is willing to do it for a extra fee. .. Either spend the time or the money .
  18. Bandai do not normally do reprints for their DX Chogokin line . So if you are betting on chance then the chance is slim . when you say you are not willing to spend $600 for kairos and $400 for Chronos , does that mean you are ok with spending $500 for Kairos and $300 for Chronos ? If so then you should be able to find them for those prices . Since theses are toys if you are not willing to spend the money , then it’s bet to save it or spend it on something else that you think will be more worthwhile. Buy what you want for the price you are willing to pay , no need to give up Macross entirely just because of 1 or 2 toys.
  19. most shops list their preorders with the tax included now. so it will be around the 25300 listed price. Amazon japan will removed the japan sales tax,, but then will add in your state /city sales tax.
  20. The Metal Build Gundam line would be a good example comparing what similar price it would be compare to buying from BBTS vs buying directly from Japan First it will depends on if they can get it from local distribution.. (over the counter / general releases) .. if so it will have a similar msrp. If it's a TWE/P-Bandai or a event item then BBTS will need to use their proxy or something to get it so it will have a high extra charge,, at that point you might as well just get it from Japan or if P-bandai USA. BBTS does offer excellent customer service, so you are picky on your toys or normally happens to have toys that falls apart on you, or need that extra sharp corner on the box then BBTS will be a good option.
  21. On the P-bandai Jp site. it shows the release/shipping date of 07-19-21
