  1. I believe the magic words are 'delayed delivery goods'. You must make it clear to your credit card company that the order was not for an in-stock items. This is from a post on an Aussie Transformers Forum, but should still largely apply : http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php/24252-Premium-Collectables-(PC)-not-refunding-help-is-here-for-doing-charge-backs?highlight=premium+collectables
  2. I didn't mention it, but a credit card should protect you for about 18 months for 'pre-orders' which are called 'delayed delivery goods' in their terms and conditions. This is using a credit card for PayPal, linking with a bank account doesn't protect you beyond PayPal. This is for Australia, but I think it applies everywhere...
  3. Prepare your bum for a super upsize.
  4. Hikaru's VF-1S is an iconic enough Valk for a reissue. Only questions are when and weather it will include Strike Packs.
  5. Yep, HLJ have 24 hour staff. I'm not sure about any other major retailers tho.
  6. I won't get in your way, but it's Friday, just after 4 AM in japan now.
  7. So... what are the chances the Riobot Legioss will ba able to line up with the Toynami Beta? The connection arm most likely wouldn't be compatible, but creating an adapter shouldn't be too difficult. Matching colors could be a problem though.
  8. Sentinel themselves? No. Mercy Rabbit, who does their artwork, revealed a Legioss and Tread combo pic a while back, but stated that it was just 'fan art'. Maybe there will be a clue on the Legioss box. The Legioss appears to have mounting points for a Tread, so I'd say it's possible depending on sales.
  9. The 404 error? It's been like that since the start.
  10. Yeah, that's a bit worrying.
  11. So the sligyt dip in the wings is intentional, not loose prototype issues...
  12. They will get upset if you cancel. Payment on arrival. Best customer support of ANY Japanese hobby retailer I have used, including HLJ.
  13. I sent them a msg. Will see if it helps...
  14. I'll chip in $5 if it helps securing a pre-order from HLJ or Hobby Search.
  15. Cool, thanks SV2! Is it known if it will be orderable through retailers like HLJ, Amiami etc?
  16. Any word on release date? And how long it will then be repeatedly delayed...

    How much of an indicator is Tamashii Nation as far as releases go..? If the Tomahawk is announced in a few months, would they have shown it at TN anyway, given that the already did so years ago? Was there any sign of the Fokker VF-4..? What I'm saying is that I don't think TN is like Arcadia at Wonderfest where products are shown repeatedly until released... There was that DX YF-21... and an appearance by that Kawamori guy...
  18. Nice work! Now do the Griffin.

    Yep, this weekend. TFCon is on then as well. Should be an interesting weekend for transforming toy news.
  20. That's how you make lemonade out of a lemon!
  21. In general, no. For Sentinel, three month delays are common. It's not that uncommon, Transformers Masterpiece MP-45 Bumblebee has also been delayed a similat amount from July to November. A lot of the time it has to do with factory delays, especially when higher skilled workers are required.
