    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    The 0D is my last item from them. It feels good to be free. Over the last 10 years I’ve Always had over 2 pages of active orders consistently. This is the result of bad customer service.
  2. Wow! They went straight to 35000 yen without any increments.
  3. Those rotating turrents are the only thing i like bout this Arcadia? The movie was disappointing to me.
  4. Over a week in "Preparation in progress". Has anyone had it shipped after this stage and if so how long after getting the notice did it take?
  5. I've had that issue with the yamato VF-1S hikaru 1/48. But only that one. My other copy of the same valk doesn't have that issue. Mind you i haven't checked in a couple of years. I'll have to recheck all my valks. I wasn't even aware it was an issue with the yf-21 1/60.
  6. Was any thing other than the tv super parts announced at the event?
  7. I've been waiting for this one since they released the other arcadia years ago. But damn... that price.

    This is been my experience as well. I live in western Canada. I recently had two shipments which i chose Fedex and DHL because they were actually cheaper than EMS. I got greedy on the quicker shipping times but i ended up getting fined customs $48 for each. I had to call them to pay by credit card too. Cost me an extra day or two thus eliminating the shipping time advantage. Never again. EMS all the way.
  9. That site's payment plan is crazy. First payment of $75 and 2 payments of $212. That adds up more than their list price.
  10. OMG! Actually got one at Amiami. First time i've gotten a preorder since they updated the websites back in Jan 2019.
  11. I believe the term is "Bloody Mary".
  12. Yeah let’s see if he’ll still simp for them when he can’t get one. Though he says he can get any preorder every time.
  13. Ugh didn’t know this was going up today. Of course all gone.
  14. Was that the yamato release or the previous arcadia release that yellowed?
  15. There is no competition. Their new ticker system to access their site is flawed and ridiculous. It's impossible to time to get in when the put up the preorder listing.
  16. We can blame NY for asking for payments too soon back in DEC which was extremely suspicious. I have no doubt they were aware of the 0D delay when they sent out that payment request a week or two earlier than usual. The OD costs me over $600 CAD. Its way too much for NY to hold on for over 6 months. I'm extremely annoyed that this money has been tied up for so long with no product and no end in sight. I don't expect to see the OD before Sept. I won't ask for my money back since i know that's a fruitless endevour with NY. Yeah we can't blame them for covid but none of this would have been a issue if they asked for payment 2 weeks prior like they usually do. They got greedy and pulled a devious maneuver. It might have have the reverse affect that NY intended. I only have 2 pre-orders with them, the 0D and the strike parts (I was in the first batch or orders). For over 10 years I've always had a 10-20 items of pre-order with them. I'm done with them after i received these final two items.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    The saga continues. A 31F i ordered came in today. Missing the head fin. I'm 3 and 3 now. At least it comes with another fin but Jeez is anyone doing their job checking what they buy at Manadarake.
  18. How do you protect the canopy sides?

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Well when they ask for pics, then more pics and now they want a video. I call it hoop jumping. I don't even know how they expect me to send a video when their email system only allows 2MBs for an attachment.
  20. The red and black one is hot.
  21. Or at least do a repaint.
  22. Did they send a tracking link. They contacted me a week ago and offered to send it Air. I said ok. Now it's been radio silence. I don't know if they shipped it or haven't gotten around to it. Frustrating.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Well guess what happened on my next order. Ordered a 1S from amiami. Opened the box, pulled out the valk and the right arm falls off. Broken shoulder hinge. Looked at the left arm, the shoulder hinge is half broken. I wasn't able to find the pieces of plastic in the box or on my desk which leads me to believe the guy who sold it to amiami had already broken it and amiami didn't notice. I've already contacted amiami and i don't have hope of a good solution like with mandarake. They seem really rude and have weird questions and requests. After sending them pics of the toy. they asked for the shipping invoice. Send them that. Then they wanted me to take a pic with the toy and invoice in the same pic. Basically making jump through hoops. Looks like they don't offer a discount. I'll have to return it to them which will only be worth it if they pay for the shipping back to them. Arghhh.
