CDJ burned me on the SV-51, so not buying anything that might be defective from them.

Sorry to hear abt that...esp on a release as pricey as the SV-51...

I got one from AmiAmi, so not too worried, but HLJ is just flat broken tonight. :p  I've loaded, added to cart, failed to check out, removed from cart, re-added, and failed again, at least 10 times across three different browsers.

I think they actually broke the listing itself.

ouch that sucks...its been a while since i ordered from HLJ myself...esp since its so hard to find a listing too...

Same with their SH Figuarts stuff. :lol:

 

I guess at some point they'll get the site back to usable...or not. 

 

-b.

hopefully it will be soon....they were my goto site way back...

I don't really need two, but I basically plan on kitbashing one with one of my Hikaru versions, and painting it in a not sucky scheme. :p 

Nice, the VF-4 certainly is attractive enough by itself, and a really thought-out scheme would be something incredible.

Ok i had to check this...i got the last VF-4 at CDJ at 10800yen last time, but this time it was at 12000yen ie no discount...

So price wise, definitely better to get it at NY for this roy VF-4.... 

It's always better to get from NY if you can get the initial preorder price. And you don't mind possibly waiting longer.

Yup, i just ordered at NY instead and cancelled CDJ.

I had tot that CDJ's points would be sufficient to offset margins as well, but this time CDJ was only offering abt 360 points. 
The gap between NY and CDJ prices were too significant to ignore for this VF-4 pre-order, i suppose.

So all in all, i am in with NY @11280 shipped, at slowest ferry of course.

So there should be 1 popping up on CDJ...

You should actually have had an option to go with faster eco shipping for less than ferry but I guess it depends on your location.

Nope, definitely my eyes aren't playing tricks on me, as i dont remember seeing that listing.

That being said, i wouldn't have gone with JP ECO even tho its cheaper, as it doesn't offer tracking.

I dont want to have to worry abt where my package might be. ;)

This is one of this items where if it gets lost, I'll be annoyed because I lost money, but I won't care about not getting one of these units.

I'm not really feeling it I guess. I wouldn't mind having one. But I'm not going to pay shipping on just one, it's not worth it to me.

Is there a way at NY for you to designate that it ships with items from other orders or something? I'd pick one up for sure if I could bundle it with other purchases. Unfortunately there isn't anything on NY that I want right now. Or more specifically nothing I want that is at a price I'll pay, There are a few DX's I want, but not at their pricing. Plenty of other places to get the same for a lot less.

I can't help but think there will be a lot available at release time fro great pricing.
