    Hi-Metal R

    Damn - looks like HLJ just sold out with order stop: https://www.hlj.com/hi-metal-r-vf-0s-phoenix-roy-focker-machine-bans63742
  2. Crickey ... thanks for the link. Ended up ordering a third one now as I just sold a pair of Yeezys earlier today so had some extra funds. I've tried Mykombini in the past and they delivered with no problems so know they are reliable.
  3. As said above for those who wish to try their luck, Nippon Yasan pre-order link up now - 2,000 yen more than the BIJ pre-order one: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/33413-super-dimension-fortress-macross-dx-chogokin-vf-1d-valkyrie-fan-racer.html Seems like most shops rather list preorders on Christmas eve rather than on Christmas day itself.
  4. First time ordering from them and I put myself down for two ... figured it was only 600 yen asking more than the initial Nin-Nin price and I wasn't going to spend my Christmas refreshing sites tomorrow whenever Nin-Nin decides to drop. Nin-Nin drops earlier than most but Roy was the exception when they dropped a few hours later at a higher price. All good ... the AUD dollar's been stregthening so I've allowed myself an early Christmas pressie today then. First time ordering TWE item but looks like I was lucky to have been ready. Certainly wasn't as painful as Roy release. Now then, waiting on Nin-Nin to deliver my Roy anyday now after having to pay extra postage early this week to get the order off.
  5. Big in Japan link now up: https://www.biginjap.com/en/home/25035-macross-dx-chogokin-vf-1d-valkyrie-fan-racer.html
  6. I've gotten all my DX Valks through Nin-nin however it's annoying how they randomly open up the orders at different points jacking the price up each time. This is going to be fun (not) spending time continuously pressing F5 at the computer and forgoing family on Christmas Day itself ...
  7. Must cop for me too - Nin Nin link up: https://www.nin-nin-game.com/en/japanese-import-hobbies-toys-bandai-premium/43408-dx-chogokin-vf-1d-valkyrie-fan-racer-macross-limited-edition-bandai-.html
  8. Mine went through fine - I've ordered from Nin-Nin before in the past and had no issues or bad experience - they've delivered me both Max DX Vf1a and Chuck V31e in the past on time and in great packaging. Unlike previous times, they didn't do an early release for this PO. I only didn't have time to apply my vouchers and choose the best PAYPAL method but hey, whatever it takes to secure an order in the heat of the moment right?
  9. You're not the only one - I also added three in the first round and missed out by the time I had removed two. On the second release, I was lucky and made sure I only clicked on the Add to Cart button once. Had hoped to snag a second one but will count my blessings as I know how it hurts to miss out totally as I did with the previous VF1s PO.
  10. I think everyone's experience is different - I certainly felt that this time wasn't as bad as the previous Hikaru VF1s DYRL release which I was unable to secure then but managed to get Max VF1a before. Nin-nin didn't have any early release this time but Nippon Yasan did. In any case, I've learnt HobbySearch is near impossible to even land on when these pre-orders drop. That said, I won't complain - I feel like copping a pair of OG Nike Jordans or SB dunks is even harder than these Macross pre-orders.
  11. Nin Nin just opened again and I managed to secure one this time I can exhale now
  12. Thanks to whoever posted that Evangelion dyna-action figure link - I pulled the trigger so even if I miss on Roy I have a consolation. Made sense as I don't have any metal build eva's yet and these are bigger than em
  13. Congrats then! I bet there were only a few which were released early then.
  14. As I said ... I doubt it went early. There was a link but when you go in, the item was unavailable but you could still load your cart.
  15. Hmmm ... the dilemna now ... do I leave in cart and wait until the pre-order time formally opens? Will be interesting if still in cart then - I think they were just setting up so doubtful if any were actually up for sale then:
  16. That Voltes V looked tempting but has a price which burns … Only have Roy in my sights today …
  17. I thought this PO was harder than the last Max 1A one ... at least I secured a Max copy back then but not tonight. My only consolation is now my 1/60 Arcadia DYRL VF1S sitting with me now. Would have been nice to have added another 1/48 one to the collection but when I think of size and display space, I only really have space for one 1/48 only so not feeling so bad this time round on missing out. Congrats to those who secured one ... know the feeling when you secure one ha ha
  18. Every man, woman and child to themselves - may the spoils go to the victors! Tension rising …
  19. FYI - Nin-Nin's got their link up ... https://www.nin-nin-game.com/en/japanese-import-hobbies-toys-game-character/32302-macross-vf-1s-valkyrie-hikaru-ichijou-use-dx-chogokin-.html
  20. Secured one but was hoping for two ... but seeing how everyone else went I guess I was lucky. So goes the hopes of many forming a Vermillion squad.
  21. Good luck everyone with PO madness ... hoping Nin-Nin delivers as I've just placed an order with them. Like the VF31E, they tend to open up PO batches earlier than others at cheaper prices building up to more expensive mark-ups later: Spreading my eggs so just need to place an order with Amix2 or another one later then all good.
