Had to cancel my N-Y order and make a new one, but I finally stopped getting PayPal errors. 30300 JPY total shipped.

Here's a question for the VF-1J early adopters among us - how hard was that one to snag on or around release day at MSRP?

Bit the bullet and just ordered from N-Y at 25,800 yen so I could just get it over with.

The VF-1J was much easier. I was actually able order one from both CDJ and HLJ so I just ended up canceling my HLJ order.

would those that got their copies be kind enough to get out of NY's site so someone else can go in?

I would guess its a most a handful on this site. Most here are very considerate in regards to others wanting to add just one to thier collection.

Closed all my tabs and resisting the urge to stare at the bittersweet sight of my order history page. Good luck my guy.

Thanks, and congrates on your copy

 

Finally got in, but their inflated price ones are sold out too, great I guess I won't get one then

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

I managed to get one at AE again, along w/ Max:

Didn't get anywhere at AmiAmi or HLJ no matter how hard I tried (I think my F5 key is broekn) so thank goodness I didn't waste my time there.

Also managed to get GX-88 from NY:

Congrats to those who walked away with something and my condolences for those that came out empty handed.  I feel for you 'cause I've been there myself lots-o-times... :sorry:

Not sure why you guys are complaining about the ticket system. In the past where they didn't have this system the website just crashes.

We're complaining because we watched a flaky-as-hell queue system go up and down and all around for two freaking hours, just in time for the site to load and have no stock of even the usual NY markup.

It SUCKS.

At least with a crashing site, you could try and reload it.

Go into the website earlier and search around next time. I did and didn't need to go through any queue. :unknw:

At least with a queue system some actually get to go in.

I DID.

IT DID JACK.

Sorry, don't mean to get heated, but I was waiting there for the entire two hours.  It did diddly squat at actually getting me in before five minutes ago.

What do you mean why are we complaining? Maybe it worked out for you because you got lucky. The rest of us saw jack happen for an hour.

Nope, was cart jacked as well even though I wasn't in the queue. Better luck next time. :unknw:
