  1. Hello, Looking for an Arcadia VF-0S Premium Finish edition, MISB. Shipping would be to Toronto, Canada, but also have access to mail forwarding service in the US. Thanks!
  2. Mine was also info received on the 30th, finally had movement on December 10th and received it on the 14th.
  3. Anybody's order with Lunapark still stuck in Shipment information received status with DHL? Mine's been sitting in that status since last Sunday.
  4. When Bandai do release them again is probably when NY will finally honor the people they've screwed over so far...a year and a half since paying and going...
  5. Fellow Canuck here, I've ordered from Amiami roughly 10 times in the last year, they never declare the full value and haven't paid duties once when shipping via EMS. If I recall correctly, they marked the value of the Sentinel Legioss as 1200 Yen. DHL is a cheaper shipping option with Amiami, but DHL will always nail you for duties plus their service fee. Amiami is now my go to store since NY is such garbage now.
  6. Mandarake shipped on the 24th and departing Japan the next day is not normal? Better than normal?
  7. Am I one of the few that actually liked Batman Forever? Val Kilmer probably wasn't the best choice for Batman but I watched it as a young teenager and thought it was pretty good. Batman and Robin on the other hand... Tigerland is a great Vietnam War movie, great cast besides Colin Farrell, Clifton Collins Jr., Cole Hauser, Michael Shannon, etc...
  8. Looks like EMS is back to normal? Just had a couple of orders from AmiAmi and Mandarake shipped via EMS to Canada leave Japan within a few days, 1 in the case of Mandarake.
  9. Amiami order paid for and shipped, so this is what it feels like to get things shipped on release date...no word on my second copy from NY, anybody get payment request yet?
  10. I still don't get that response, how do they not have it yet but people here are clearly getting there's shipped to them.
  11. I'd like to stop using them, but the problem is, they still have my FREAKING money. As per someone's previous post, NY even stated they're only out to help select individuals, that's great, what about the rest of us that threw 300$ at them expecting a product, yet got nothing, won't even entertain a refund. So yeah, people have the right to complain because as you yourself stated, who ever can deliver gets the business. NY is not delivering and people are upset, make sense to you? How about I sold you something on the MW forums, you paid me 300$, and I held it for 6 months before shipping it to you. You wouldn't be too happy, would you? You wrote in another post is getting a toy really at the top of people's priorities at times like these? I'd say yes because I'm sure some people have been severely impacted by what's going on and could either use a refund or at the very least the goods delivered to resell for much needed cash. Can't buy much food on NY store credit.
  12. I don't get the horseshit that NY is trying to feed here. This is the response I got from the customer service this morning. Date: 2020-05-14 14:59:24 Name: Marine Message: Dear customer, Thank you for your message We apologize if we were unable to send your order upon release of the product. After checked your order with the Delivery Center we regret to inform you we won't be able to ship your order on time. We will receive our stock with delay, therefore your order will be sent approximately two weeks late. But yet they were sending out orders 3 weeks ago? What gives with these guys?
  13. I ordered a couple of things from Manda, 1 from Complex, the other from Nayuta, both shipped with EMS. Both were shipped out yesterday, the Complex one went to arrival at outward office of exchange after 3 hours, the other is still in posting/collection. I guess JapanPost must still be working.
  14. I wonder if this is going to impact how expensive this hobby is already. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2020/04/09/japan-ditches-china-in-multi-billion-dollar-coronavirus-shakeout/#22cd1b4d5341
  15. I live in Ontario too and try to avoid Manda and HLJ as much as possible as they always declare the full value on their packages. Amiami and NY (30+ orders) always declare something small and have never been nailed by CBSA when shipping with SAL or EMS.
  16. Hey sorry off topic here but wondering if anybody has had any issues with NY lately? My MP-47 Hound has been sitting in Preparation in Progress since Jan 6th and there’s been lots of similar complaints on their Facebook page recently.
  17. Did you get dinged for duties and taxes for any of the packages?
  18. WTF, NY is selling the VF-1A for 24000 yen now and a lot of us paid the mark up of 27500 yen after PO night...mother effers...
  19. MyKombini finally put it up for sale, 23990. https://mykombini.com/en/macross-robotech/16052-dx-chogokin-vf-1a-valkyrie-maximilian-jenius-custom-macross-bandai-spirits-4573102567222.html?search_query=macross&results=106
  20. https://heroichollywood.com/rian-johnson-star-wars-trilogy-freedom/ Star Wars is so screwed. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson is ready to hop back into the iconic galaxy far, far away with his own trilogy separate from the Skywalker Saga, and it looks like he has full creative control."
  21. Racist caricatures in The Phantom Menace? I’m guessing you’re talking about the Gungans or maybe the trade federation? I have no idea but I don’t see George Lucas as a racist. You can literally find a form of racism in any movie you watch, if you’re looking hard enough to find it. To be honest, I don’t know how anybody walks into a movie trying to find out all the social injustices that are portrayed in a movie unless it’s something very blatant and intended. Our society is shifting in a way that soon everything will be offensive to one person or another and movies still just plain suck. I think you're over generalizing the fandom and I have to wholeheartedly disagree with what you're saying. I don't know where you get off saying fans went into TFA determined to hate it. Yes, my friends and I were peeved when Disney trashed the EU, but we were still optimistic and looking forward to the new trilogy. We enjoyed TFA, ranking it as the 4th best SW movie at the time, Rogue One has since surpassed it in our opinion. I think with an 87% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, this is the general sentiment amongst die hard and casual fans alike. Sure, TLJ was a piece of junk that I wish I could un-watch and erase from my memory, but most SW fans I know went into this new trilogy with an open mind. I'm not sure where you're getting bad fanfiction territory from either. JJ Abrams basically stole ideas from multiple successful EU story lines and from the original trilogy and amalgamated them into TFA. I always found JJ to be somewhat unoriginal (Star Trek Into Darkness The Return of Khan anyone?). TLJ was written by Rian Johnson and that wasn’t so much as a SW story as it was someone trying to shove their political ideology down our throats. He is also in my estimation nowhere near being a Star Wars fan. Not all EU storylines are centered around the 3 heroes. Off the top of my head, there is the X-Wing series, the Boba Fett trilogy, the Old Republic series, etc…all good storylines where where the 3 heroes make cameo or no appearances at all. Again, I don’t see any hate from fans for TFA, if you could please show me you’re getting this idea from. JJ tried to make this movie appeal to the broad general audience which I think he succeeded in doing. The movie earned over 2 billion at the box office and I don’t see a need to panic here as you stated and change direction for TLJ. It is because Rian Johnson tried to pander to a specific audience, on top of making a trash movie, are Disney in panic mode and trying to right the ship with RoS. Rogue one was in own rights a successful movie, generating over 1 billion at the box office with an 84% audience score. Solo was an unfortunate casualty of the hate that was generated by TLJ.
