  1. bay area problems (challenges)...
  2. looks like a few more 21's opened up at yoyaku if anyone is interested. looks like the jpn release date still of june? whereas the usa release dates seems like it'll be august 2024. most likely about 30-40ish will be added from the base price. https://www.yoyakunow.com/en/robots/20615-dx-chogokin-yf-21-guld-goa-bowman-custom.html
  3. where would be without your reviews!? amazing work as always!
  4. not sure if it was already mentioned. at jpn release, there's still a very very slim chance that there may be an extra or 2 available for direct purchase. most likely due to ppl cancelling because of unforeseen circumstances, or a shop may even hold a few back. but they'll go in a blink of an eye. the 3 shops you mentioned usually do not tho. but i have seen items open on ami ami or genki occasionally. sign up for notifications when an item becomes available, tho sometimes that process is slow and there's no guarantees. i just got a jpn 2nd release blitzway voltron from genki this way also, mandarake will have some too on release. again, most likely at that point with the elevated market value in both of these scenarios i suspect the 21 will go fast in any of these cases. there are tea leaves that indicate usually how hot a valk may be. this one felt pretty 🔥🔥🔥 and these will still go quickly as most will want the early jpn/asia release. good luck!
  5. yep, something to def consider. i like to think they have the best intentions, and nice to support local business, but ultimately they may getting their allocations at a limit. i had preordered some hot toys clone troopers from a texas shop. thinking the 'opportunity' to get the figures was secured. but because hot toys is asia/hk based, the texas shop never got them and my order was cancelled. no money was taken, but also didn't get the figs either. and yes, price isn't far off.
  6. i only dug into the 'about us' section of their site. i noticed daly city. i'm familiar with the area, but i've never seen a storefront. google mapped the name and it turns up (per usual daly city / south sf) as a warehouse looking space, with probably a reception lobby. and no phone number. i surmise it's just a distribution/biz center for the online shop.
  7. again, if ya willing to wait a month or 2 after jpn release, and since most if not all the jpn shops are sold out... beggers and choosers...
  8. yes, both tokyo utaku and kappa are usa domestic shops. kappa is right here in the bay area. decent price, and hella cheap shipping (even free!). not bad not bad...
  9. yes, i'm NOT going for this too... 😏
  10. seriously, are we doing this? thanks for the beautiful pics! and this valk is gorgeous!
