Heavy enough to hold off shipping for a mere 1000 yen. :lol:

The missile effects set is back on sale at NY but it's been marked up to 6800 yen. PO was 4780 yen.

I managed to grab another missile set off Amazon JP for $60 shipped. I really hadn't anticipated how difficult it might be to get more of these. I figured quantities would probably be low, it being a TWE and all, but the price is skyrocketing faster than I thought it might. Heck, there is only one set on YJA right now.

Looks like NY has started shipping the missile effects set, except for mine. They're asking me to pay a little more for shipping with the usual 'shipment was heavier than expected' reason. <_<

 

That 1 guy handling shipping was too busy packing our other orders. :p

Lol! I'm not too worried about my shipment but you got charged 1000 extra? How many sets did you buy?

 

Loving all the M&M pics!

Great pics of the pair! Shows how they complement each other so well. 

I was finally able to get my Milia set up last night, and have them both with super parts on. But the bare fighters look just as good, especially with those TV missiles.

Thanks!

Nice pics as well ScrambledValkyrie and tekering.

MyKombini finally shipped my two missile sets. As far as I can tell they only ship out web exclusive stuff once a month. It's been a consistent end of the month/early following month thing even when, say, the item comes out middle of the month like the missile effects did.

Did you make the diorama?

I've been working on the city diorama since November...

P1244801.thumb.jpg.9f3807e1642b79d7834714382f7ba227.jpg

...but it's far from complete.

P1244798.thumb.jpg.14f42d34b62944e92328855c120a664f.jpg

Streetlights, foliage, traffic lights, signage, people...

downtown.thumb.jpg.38c76684d5fdc99efabac52b4ca660b5.jpg

Lots of detail to be added yet.

P1244797.thumb.jpg.d4d06ab17725668f7261fc0e49d4ecba.jpg

And then, of course, I've got to begin distressing the buildings...

590923f001301_horizontalpods.thumb.jpg.6bd948a17149c552854dabe43a368bc7.jpg

Adding rubble and debris...

street_view.thumb.jpg.640b45e8099cb3c120dcad65afc7f651.jpg

Smashed buildings, broken glass...

targeted.thumb.jpg.7a8ef1cec8f7c46851ec159c0e6570b6.jpg

It's all still too clean and colorful...!

8 units but they're for friends. I thought they'd be easy to get after release so I didn't get any for myself. :(

Wow. That's awesome! How about an aerial view of the diorama? It looks big but it might just be the angle.

So about $1 more each? Nbd.

It's not bad but the problem I have with it is their slow response time. They take days to request extra payment, then take another few days to actually ship out the item.

What is up with NY trying to screw people with the currency conversion?  They want $80 US for this shipped, you choose the yen and go to PayPal it goes down to $71, more than 10% off.  Wow.

Never use NY's conversation rate! It's another way of topping up their profits, on top of their over-priced shipping rates gimmick

Yep, it's also best to use a cc with no foreign transaction fee and some type of rewards.

Also use your credit cards conversion rate instead of PayPal's. Can't tell you how much money I wasted on cc and PayPal foreign transaction/conversion fees before getting setup properly :vava: 

Could have bought an extra dx 1/60 or hmr monster lol

I love how NY is always villianized everywhere. They offer the lowest preorder prices for most items, even after adding shipping charges, they still end up around the same or lower than most other shops without shipping. But yeah, they are terrible thieves out to steal your money :D

Every other shop has unfavorable conversion rates too if you use them for conversion. Like mentioned, always pay in yen and let your card do the conversion, which will be the current rate. Even if you have fees, it will be better.

its almost seems like N-Y have your account on their List to bill extra invoice whenever they need extra money for beer or something.

Oops. You noticed my rants over the years. I wonder if they'll bill me extra for Hayate's super parts...
