  1. I didn't get the VF-31A I ordered from NY too. I ordered a few units for myself and friends back in 2017, the day after pre-order opened. The toy came out in March 2018. I waited till January 2019 for NY to fulfill my orders but they couldn't commit to it. I cancelled a part of it in November 2018 and the rest in January 2019. Routine followups also resulted in the same scripted response and they kept offering refunds. so I caved in. I had to accept store credit since it was more than a year since the payment was made. The worst part was, as I recall, how the VF-31A was in stock at a mark up weeks after I cancelled mine. Maybe a coincidence? I don't give them as much business as I used to because of that incident due to financial decisions but there are other alternatives. My experience contradicts some of the statements made here but that VF-31A debacle was the one time NY couldn't deliver.
  2. 19440 yen at HS https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10605111
  3. AE has the 1A Max in stock at 24800 yen right now. http://www.anime-export.com/product/45324
  4. The waiting counter at NY seems to be selective. I have not seen it even once today and I could refresh as I liked.
  5. Hello guys. It's been 7 years since I worked on this and we even have the Masterfile for the VF-11 coming out soon. I've had a few requests to share the 3d model of the VF-11B so I've decided to release it. Please note that I'm not good at modelling/texturing nor do I have the patience for it. This was a one-time thing that I somehow managed to pull off so don't be alarmed by the messy model and shoddy textures. The 3d model is in 3ds max 2012 format with Vray materials and the Macross Plus VF-11B color scheme textures are included in this archived file. I'm not sure where I put the low-vis scheme used in the animations. The rigs I used are intact but they're basic at most. Please do not re-upload it to any commercial sites like Turbosquid or use it for a commercial product/service of any kind. Have fun. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oTgfF6w645H6OGngXD6ZAOKhNWyj8Jvl/view
  6. I just refunded my Kairos last month because I was tired of waiting as well so to find it available now kinda stings. I'm not going to rely on NY alone for the armoured parts.
  7. Eh. Isn't the Chuck variant supposed to be web exclusive? I hope it's not a general release. I won't be around to order it. :O
  8. It's up at NY as well. https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27278-macross-1-60-kanzen-henkei-ve-1-elintseeker-premium-finish.html

    Hi-Metal R

    Same here. The new items never show up as results but they do once they reach 'Order Stop' status. This wasn't the case before.
  10. It's sold out at NY though. I got to the last page and it sold out.
  11. If any of you bought multiple units from NY, you might want to consider bargaining with NY to reduce the order to 1 unit. I was told by customer support that I'd have a better chance of having it fulfilled compared to waiting for the full order which apparently might take up till the end of the year.
  12. I didn't expect it to sell out this fast when many people were skipping it.
  13. I got the same reply as well except this time, they didn't make any mention of stock or if they're trying to get more. Edit: I pressed them for more info and they've reiterated that they still don't know when they'll be getting stock.
  14. So they expect us to buy an entirely new plane just because the wings are new?
  15. Hs had a limit of 3.
  16. PO actually starts in 2 hours. We're too early!

  18. Where I'm from, that's how scammers start their business. They offer the lowest prices to attract attention, deliver a few orders to build some trust and when the order book gets sizeable enough, they disappear. I'm not saying NY is a scam. I'm just pointing out that lower prices are common in the shady business.
  19. That's the dumbest thing I've heard in a while. So now I can't just clear my pre-orders before cutting them off but I have to continue giving them business just to recoup my money and that means it'll take up to 6 months till another new item is released. The worst part is how I used a discount voucher on the purchase and no way NY is going to give that back.
  20. It's not the wording I'm concerned about but how they're using a script to reply to my enquiry, regardless of the actual question.
  21. I sent a followup to NY asking how they're actually fulfilling orders and I got the same verbatim reply that has nothing to do with my question. At this point, I'm convinced NY isn't bothered at all. They're just sending the same reply to everyone. I'd say I was disappointed, but I don't think the word is sufficient. This might be a repeat of what everyone's saying but I'd like to add my name to the list as well.
  22. A conspiracy theory would be that they do have someone spying on this forum. It seems 1 fulfillment a day is enough to keep us at bay.
  23. It's actually been more than 3 weeks. The toy came out on the 15th.
  24. I'm way back in the queue if it's any consolation. No doubt I wouldn't be prioritized but the extra units I ordered were for friends and they seem to be willing to wait so I'll give NY another week. Unfortunately for us, they'd rather piss off 1 customer with multiples instead of multiple customers with singles.
