  1. ☚ī¸ Sorry, I've been there on many a release. I truly got lucky because I had time off of work to sacrifice the sleep for days in a row. And I got extremely lucky yesterday - even when I was trying to add it to my cart I was getting errors about it being out of stock. I just kept trying and eventually the order went through (my credit card has been charged and all of that as well) ^Pretty much this, although I am slightly jealous that your order from AE has already shipped and is en route. -b.
  2. Pretty sure things are slow(er) everywhere because of the holidays. If it makes anyone feel better I don't have a payment request yet from AmiAmi, I requested and paid for shipping via Anime-Export and it hasn't shipped and I even took a BIG chance and pre-ordered with Nin-Nin with everything paid up front and nothing from them either. I think HLJ is one of the only stores with real movement on the 31AX so far. I managed to get an order from HLJ earlier this evening (after it went from Order Stop to Discontinued to In Stock) and they've invoiced me for the Valk and shipping, so it'll really be something if they ship out before all of my pre-orders. I've also ordered a handful of items from Luna Park and outside of the questionable packaging I've had zero issues with them, but of course everyone's mileage can and will vary. -b.
  3. Was thinking about this last night as well, my two favorite D+ series have been the ones I was initially least excited about, Loki and Hawkeye and they are my two favorites. From a 'hit or miss' perspective the series have been better than the movies (so far, and I haven't yet seen 'No Way Home'). -b.
  4. đŸ¤Ŗ That would be something, my DX next to the laundry detergent - but they can barely keep Transformers, Star Wars and GI Joe in stock -b.
  5. So I saw the trailer for this last night and I feel like A24 movies are never really straight forward, so I'm guessing her character just went insane because of the circumstances and -b.
  6. Always enjoy the Pitch Meetings from Screen Rant, by and large they're hilarious, and often times accurate in that arm-chair quarterback sort of way. -b.
  7. Or, people just like what they like. While my impression of Eternals is mixed, I don't begrudge anyone who feels strongly in one way or the other. -b.
  8. Definitely didn't mean it that way, I thought Shang-Chi was outstanding and I though Black Widow was terrible. Eternals was just different...I like that it felt more mature thematically , the story was just, messy. For my .02 it fits squarely in between the other two movies on a scale of "good" to "bad". Can't quiet put my finger on how to articulate all of my thoughts specific to Eternals. -b.
  9. That's a real bummer, I recall HLJ took a similar stance some years back and after (what I assume had to have been) significant customer backlash their shipping practices shifted back to better protection for the items being shipped. I suspect that LP will go through those same pains and improve, or see business shift to other vendors. And I still haven't opened my Gundam Factory Nigh Illuminated version...đŸ˜Ŧ -b.
  10. It was 5000 JPY, probably a little high considering no box, but it was via DHL and it arrived lightning fast so I'm not inclined to make a big deal about it. ^Pretty much the same, but packed a little better than that (didn't have that terrible brown tape around it). To be honest I'm probably more annoyed that the Gundam Factory bag was used as packing material. My original Gundam Factory came from OkiniLand and it was nicely folded and unused and the bag was something that I was not expecting when it arrived. All of that said, I got lucky, my item arrived in good shape, it arrived quickly so I don't have any legit complaints. Just sharing my experience since I saw the question asked. I'd order from them again, but I would make a point to ask for an actual box for shipping. -b.
  11. One or more of these is very much carried over into the movie. I never read any Eternals storylines back when I was a diehard comic book collector, but from what I gather their history is a bit muddled to say the least and that their comics backstory was recently retconned to make said history a little more accessible. IMO this wasn't the worst of the MCU, but I can see why the ratings are what they are. I went to a noon showing and the theatre was pretty full, but I'm really curious to see what the week 2 box office numbers look like and if there's significant drop-off. I really wanted to enjoy Eternals more than I did, and I loved some of the tonal changes over typical Marvel movies. The heavier subject matter about the nature of humanity and character development were a very interesting change of pace (even the more predictable aspects), the messiness of the story though... Of the current Phase, Shang-Chi is far and away the best, Shang-Chi>Eternals>Black Widow -b.
  12. That's where I ordered mine from, I've had it for about a week - still haven't opened it yet. I almost had a bad experience with LP as they essentially put one layer of bubble wrap, placed it inside of the Gundam Factory shopping bag and double-bagged it with the DHL shipping bags (so the box, wrapped in bubble wrap, inside of the Gundam Factor Bag inside of (2) DHL bags). It's truly a miracle that it arrived with a couple of dings on the corners of the box. I'll order from LP again but will make a point of asking them to place my item inside an actual shipping box. 😒 -b.
  13. No problem at all, shipping wasn't bad for just the parts, 2,990 JPY for DHL. I'd honestly consider ordering from them again. -b.
  14. 3 AM call time here too, a lot of us are 40+. I've ordered a handful of items from LunaPark and received everything and in a timely manner. Oddly enough my Macross items were packaged well, but my recent order (Gundam item) was shipped only in two DHL bags and a little bubble wrap (IIRC). It's a miracle that item arrived in good shape. I'd use them again, but I'd say packaging seems to be the only concern (consistency in how careful items are packed from my perspective). -b.
  15. Yes, it's been my first and only order with them so far and they were the first shop I ordered a set from that shipped mine out. -b.
  16. That's happened with A-E before, and I'm in the same boat this go around. I sent a message earlier today but don't expect a response until tomorrow as they've got a message about being closed for a National Holiday. ------------------------- For anyone on the fence about N-Y, I don't even go to their site anymore, and I mean this in the most disrespectful way possible, F those guys. They fully deserve every bit of negative feedback they get. I was able to get one at AmiAmi, cart jacked at Hobby Search and HLJ. But I'm not overly worried or bummed, I'll pick up another copy at or around release. -b.
  17. My recommendation is to absolutely watch this in theatres, the ending truly will give you Fellowship of the Ring vibes, at least it did for me. And when I saw it Dune Part 2 had not been officially greenlit yet. The ending is not painfully abrupt and it ends about a good a time as any. ^This ^Also this, but I didn't watch any of the made for TV stuff, just this and the different versions of the '84 movie, which I also enjoyed. -b.
  18. While I neither agree or disagree (because I am not versed in the source material), I really enjoyed reading your .02. Just wanted to state my appreciate for how you presented your thoughts on this iteration of Dune. You rang? Where do I buy my ticket??? đŸ¤Ŗ -b.
  19. As a species we're still screwed lol Ripley said it best; You know, Burke, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them f***ing each other over a goddamn percentage. -b.
  20. 😁 I'm totally going to waste my money to get this on-demand, and won't have a single complaint about it. -b.
  21. Saw this last night, looks like a good bit of stupid fun; -b.
  22. Or subtitles...which is how I'm going to watch at home 👴 Not my favorite Hans Zimmer score, but I agree that it really fit the movie. Makes me very happy I ordered this last week when it went on sale; https://mondoshop.com/products/the-dune-sketchbook-music-from-the-soundtrack-3xlp -b.
