  1. ( Shizuka the Pregnant Cat, Ph.D. peeks in. ) Wait, there's a Bandai 1/48 VF-1D out now?!?! Any other upcoming releases + pre-orders coming up soon? I am sooo out of the loop nowadays. I miss collecting valkyries, but since I have my own little pilot arriving in a couple of months, I am trying to be good/responsible. Hope everyone is doing well! Meow! P.S. I miss seeing @jenius post videos to his ScorchedEarthToys YouTube channel on a weekly basis. P.P.S. I have been marathoning Star Trek, thanks to encouragement from one of my friends/former classmates. I miss seeing men wearing one-piece dresses without pants in The Next Generation! Bring them back!!!!
  2. Thanks! I can't wait to start her off on stuffed animals.... then introduce her to some cheap Toynami 1/100 scale VF-1 toys... before upgrading her to the Hi-Metal R versions. And I will show her the original series, Plus, 7, and Frontier all the time!!! And I will teach her how to code and solve differential equations. It will be great!
  3. Hello fellow Macross fans and lovers, I just thought I would peek in to say hi and see if any new toys have been announced, recently released, or coming out soon. Also, I just wanted to announce the highly anticipated future release of "Valkyria the Kitten", coming late 2021.... all going well. Anyways, please stay safe and healthy everyone! Love, Shizuka the Cat, PhD
  4. Glad you got your money back @Dobber The money I prepaid back in April 2019 is lost forever. At least I only lost about $110. I know many others lost far far more than me.
  5. I have multiple tickets open, some dating back several months. They just sit there, unanswered. *sigh*
  6. So, I just live chatted with Nippon-Yasan support... again... inquiring about my Super/Strike parts pre-order that I have been waiting over a year for them to ship. This time the support person said my order was sent to the fulfillment center handled by Japan Post. I asked, "Why does my order status still show 'Preparation in Progress'? Why is the most recent status update still dated September 2020." The chat support person said "Oh. I just noticed that too." I asked , "When was my order sent to the fulfillment center? Why hasn't the order status been updated? Why have I not been sent any tracking information?" The chat support person could not answer any of these questions and went quiet on me. All I got back was a canned response saying "I'm sorry to hear that. The team is very busy and they get hundreds of tickets every day. Someone will answer your ticket as soon as they check the follow-up." that they copied and pasted into every past chat conversation I have had with them. I think this chat support person just lied to me, and tried to get me to go away by telling me my order got sent to the fulfillment center when there is evidence to indicate this is actually the case. I am never trusting this store ever again.
  7. So.... I contacted Nippon-Yasan customer support via their website's online chat 4 days ago regarding my order. I was told to wait 24 - 48 hours for an email response for their higher-level support. 2 days passed, no response from N-Y. I contacted the online chat support a second time. Again, I was told to wait another 24 - 48 hours to hear back. 2 more days pass, still no response from N-Y. I contacted online chat support a third time. All they did was tell me to wait another 24 - 48 hours. *sigh* I can only see Nippon-Yasan as a crooked operation in my eyes at this point. I have support tickets that I opened several months ago that have gone unanswered. Well, I am confident I will never see the 11,100 yen I paid for my pre-order ever again. It is lost forever. Do not buy from these guys. NEVER EVER! I learned my lesson, Dr. Shizuka the Cat, Ph.D.
  8. I can't even cancel my order to get store credit from NY, because they don't respond to the support tickets I create at all.
  9. Wow, the VF-25S Ozma finally arrived to @Benson13 today... via USPS Priority Mail. Sorry @Benson13that it took so long for the valkyrie to arrive.
  10. I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and a wonderful 2021. Please stay healthy and safe, and enjoy Macross responsibly. 愛・おぼえていますか - Dr. Shizuka the Cat, Ph.D.
  11. Thanks to Nippon-Yasan f###ing me over on the Super/Strike Parts, I just ordered both the movie version and TV version Super Parts from Amazon Japan. Total bill is about $360 including shipping. *sigh* I know I am paying WAY above original pre-order pricing. At least I know I will actually receive this order or get refunded if it does not arrive, unlike what I can expect from Nippon-Yasan's non-existent customer service.
