roflmao!

think that's the first time ever I got cart-jacked at CDJ earlier.  already at checkout and stuff, then after the circle-of-blank-page-of-wait, got the red notice that it was unable to proceed due to no more availability.

amz-jp was stupid. got it in my cart and checking out, then "does not ship to your location" crap popped up.

oh, well.

not sweating it since I already got the original yammie and the pf from arcadia that includes all FPs and missiles, but this was certainly quite an amusing experience.

just hope you guys don't buy it from the scalpers who got this and that they get stuck with it unsold.

maybe just hope Arcadia re-issue their PF to get your version of the Strike-Hikaru with all the needed parts included already...

:bump:

frakk this crap. This is the third in the row i've come out with nothing. I've been collecting since 2007 and i've never had this hard of a time getting a preorder, even during the frontier years.  In fact i usually managed to get 2 or 3 copies. Ever since amiami and hlj went to their "improved" websites i haven't been able to get anything. Not one successful preorder. I will not pay scalper prices. This is a great way to get me out of the hobby.

Agreed. Their new websites are bloated crap.

I did get the confo email, so I guess that it went through at NY (or at least that they processed my payment)

 

Same exact thing happened to me. I think...we're good? Payment went through. Order

 

Missed out on the SOC Dairugger, but hopefully there will be other opportunities on that one...

I'm happy with my Yammies and Arcadias. I really don't need to collect 1.48 so the scalpers can go screw themselves. Also, Bandai's loss :)

At least the old sites. You either got it or you didn't. There wasn't a lot of uncertainty at various points of the checkout process. You end up waiting for an hour not knowing if you got it or not.

How long until N-Y starts taking orders at higher prices?

Tomorrow or later today. I wont go to them this time. I have 2 items awaiting for their release. I hear they bundle orders. I dont want to wait forever to get them.

Has Amazon posted all I see are third party

If it was the same situation as the SOC GX-88, it was listed on Amazon.jp, and you could place it in your cart.

But it would NOT ship to the US.

Sucked. <_<

Edit:  Pretty much what NeoMatter said immediately above.

I do really hope that the shops like HLJ, NY, AmiAmi come out a way to determine which customer is genuine.

and give priority to long time customer.

 

Since is a pre-order Bandai actually can make base on demand. why make life so difficult?

They can penalize those cancel order and black list those...

NY countdown finally finished to a "your order is complete". I'm speaking at a Cloud Computing conference in Tokyo in December. I think I'm going to make snarky remarks about NY, HLJ and AmiAmi and the general inability to run a website that scales to demand.

Penalize and blacklist those who cancel (pre)orders? 

We really starting to get this cutthroat now?

I got cartjacked on every other major site in the time it took for HLJ's spinning wheel of death to tell me that the item in my cart was no longer available....

So what happens now? Mine still shows one in my cart, but can't go any further?

ya know?

not really trying to be THAT GUY, but you guys who got it from HLJ better be prepared to get their cancellation-email shenanigans.

hope they don't and that they got it all figured out, but it's been an ongoing HLJ-feature since their redesign.

Remember when Shizuka the Cat would post links and we'd all get pre-orders and the world was awesome? Good times.

I think the Cat said she would be out and without Internet access for this session of preorder madness.

I guess it would be quicker to ask who actually managed to snag one? Show of hands.

I was gunning for GX-88 and managed to sneak in an order for VV/Dairugger XV.
