  1. just an FYI, Buyee is now offering a cheaper Fedex shipping which is based on actual weight instead of volumetric weight. So might be an option for those using proxies and need a cheaper shipping method: https://buyee.jp/help/yahoo/guide/shipping-fees?lang=en
  2. The final film was supposed to be released this January but was postponed again due to the worsening COVID in Japan. I think this is the second postponement of the film as it was supposed have been released summer last year, so the joke in the community is that the title of the final film is "You can (not) watch" or something like that.
  3. So N-Y still shipped one of my remaining orders (PBandai gunpla kit) even when I filed a PP dispute on an order before that (also a kit, and no response or change of status for almost two months, and also haven't banned me yet). Basically just followed-up as it's supposed to be released the last week of December and also to ask if there's a need to change shipping as the one selected has been suspended. Surprised they quickly replied and provided the options. I chose Ferry and the difference was turned to store credits (just 7 bucks) and they got shipped the same day. Granted, this is a lesser value item which is much easier to get compared to Macross stuff. Anyway, let's see if the actual item gets delivered in 2/3 months (who knows, at this point won't be surprised if NY resorted to some delivery shenanigans)
  4. YAJ VF-1S Roy and TV super parts (both unopened) bundle for buy it now price of 37k yen and with free domestic shipping: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e489802892 same but at 37.8k yen (and free shipping): https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b509896561 @38k yen (free shipping): https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/c879884134 Just VF-1S Roy with buy it now price and free domestic shipping: * 24.5k yen: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/v765778212 * 24.98k yen: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e481858890 * 25k yen: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k525002396 * 25.5k yen: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/m465807562 * 25.5k yen: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/q410671356
  5. It was available to Canada just after release. Got mine for 25,273 yen (after sales tax, total of 29,428 yen including DHL shipping/customs tax). Though it seems that the price right now is less since then so it's a bummer that it's not available for outside (or at least to Canada) shipping.
  6. Had some time for a quick assembly of Voltes V. Liked the size and weight of it. No issues with the assembly, though you might have trouble fitting/joining the Volt Panzer and frigate (torso / waist) as it might not be that clear in the manual that you need to pull/widen the waist part so the Panzer can fit (then push back afterwards to lock). Also had a bit of a scare with the Volt Cruizer as one side of the wing popped out and I thought I broke it (might get surprised if you haven't read the manual). Turns out the wing has an alternate piece thus it's removable
  7. Nice year ender, 2 x DX SOC Voltes V from Amazon JP, and TV super parts and MB Sword striker pack from MyKombini all delivered today (DHL and Fedex)
  8. So my 2 x DX SOC Voltes V from Amazon JP have arrived. Kudos to DHL for delivering it before the year ends. Also waiting for my DX TV VF1 Super Parts and MB Sword Striker Pack (from MyKombini) with Fedex (already here in my city but Fedex seems to be taking their sweet time), so if they deliver it before the year ends, that would be sweet (TV super parts and MB Sword striker pack also delivered today, so great year ender). Bought 2 as I also want to display the Big Falcon base with the individual Volt Machines.
  9. Voltes V still currently available at Amazon JP for 66,980 yen - 10% and shipping rate of 9695 yen (shipping was lower at PO at ~8k yen)
  10. shocked with Amazon's flat rate, lol. Yeah it was really good while it lasted. I had some other POs last year that had the flat rate and released this year, so if I PO'ed it from another shop, would pay a fortune to ship this year (e.g. 1200 yen vs >10000 yen just for EMS). I think Amazon JP was offering the flat rate until April this year as I have some POs that time, and all was charged with 1600 yen shipping.
  11. Would have been sweet if Bandai opened the PO much earlier like the first few months of 2020 and Amazon JP still has its flat rate shipping. Ordered the Metal Structure Nu from Amazon and shipping was just 1600 yen for that and the box for that is also big (but smaller than Voltes box)
  12. So Amazon JP just charged my CC for the 2 x Voltes V I've PO'ed. 8k yen shipping each for a total of 61985 yen each (also includes customs tax here in Canada).
  13. 12/23 around 5 PM Pacific and got a payment request like 20 minutes after submission.
  14. Still working (Canada, and no VPN/proxies). I don't click the refresh button, I just re-paste and reopen the URL after the first one.
  15. I have been ordering MBs and DX chokogins (regular/TWEs) for two years and no issues so far and they have been timely with delivery (a week at most when they ship the order).
  16. So MyKombini is relatively early in updating their site now. Usually they're quite late to post new items (usually a few days after), and that somewhat works as an advantage as the PO madness has somewhat dissipated at that time so the item doesn't go out of stock immediately. FJ secured my VF-1D order (requested it quite early) and was planning to get a second one form MyKombini, but seems it's gone now.
  17. Lots of Chogokin Gundam Factory Yokohama posted in YAJ. Cheapest buy it now I can find: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/q423513657 @ 31.8k yen with free domestic shipping. Size of this one is also roughly 1/100 just like Metal Builds or Metal Composites. MSRP is 22k yen though considering that you need to go and line up at Yokohama to get this, I think the price is fine.
  18. It's about the history of Macross Music (1982 - 2018) with interviews from creators, producers, artists, etc. It has some art/illustrations but majority of the contents are text (in Japanese): https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/gp/product/4758016070/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  19. Also received mine from AmazonJP (located in Canada, ordered last weekend). Though I received the box somewhat beat up and one of the sides almost open. The books are shrink wrapped inside so fortunately no damage on the books, considering that it's winter here and there's a possibility that it might get wet if exposed. Also have another one coming from Amiami (originally PO'ed there)
  20. If the item status in the page is 'In Stock' it means that it's available. The date indicated is the estimated delivery date if you order it now (in most cases it arrives earlier than that estimate unless DHL has an issue delivering at your place in a timely manner)
  21. Hopefully if enough locals which is Bandai's main market complain, they might do something about it. And hopefully that would also be beneficial to us outside.
  22. if you read the VF-1S Roy review/comments in AJ, seems like locals (Japan) are complaining about availability and the price due to resellers. They're wishing that the VF-1S Roy movie ver., when released be a PBandai (or I think the sentiment is that really popular ones like Roy be a PBandai and not a general release)
  23. and Fedex. Used that for my HLJ Roy order at just 3420 yen. Also just an FYI, if you create an account with Fedex and use that to pay for duties/taxes, they'll waive their advancement/disbursement fee so you'll only pay for the duties/taxes. You can call Fedex support when you receive your Fedex invoice and tell them that you want to use your Fedex account for the duties/taxes.
