I'm in,
Had no luck with the free ones like https://distill.io/ as they just create more Spam in my inbox.

Distill isn't a shopping bot, it's just a plugin that lets you know when a page updates.

Not very useful for pre-order madness, but helps when you're watching for things to show up on Mandarake or the like.

The folks you have to deal with to get this done seem shady to me.. I wonder if it wouldn't be possible to do some kind of negotiation with a vendor months before a release to hold some stock. I have no idea, just throwing out a random thought.

These online sites dont really take that as an option since if they offer it, everyone would simply jump on the list. It might be good though if you are in Japan and if you have an established rapport with the Brick and Mortar toys there.

 

I dont really agree on using bots but the recent experience on securing PO for Macross Toys is really bad that I will also jump on bot tech if it need be.

AE has them up already for anyone interested:  http://www.anime-export.com/product/45848

I just did a PO though them,. First time with them. Do they contact you when it's ready to ship, you get your options, then pay at that time for shipping?

Thanks!

I have an order in at N-Y placed at 2019-06-07 09:37:32 (their time) for two strike packs. I'll be at a different address near the end of the year but back at my regular address next year. What are the chances my order will be delivered as part of the December batch as opposed to the April batch, let alone be delivered before the end of the year?

Also it's a really interesting video with the background choices for the designs for the strike pack.

The design for the DX strike pack, or the design for the original one they drew in the 80s? If the former, did they say why it was hollow with no engine detail?

Yup! You got it. And they seem to control inventory a bit better than N-Y’s model (though I did get two of my missile sets from them on the previous release).

Beyond the answer you already got, AE also has an “indefinite” private warehouse feature. You can leave your order with them until you decide to ship and collect and combine as many orders as makes sense to you. I’ve had things there for over a year before I shipped and they came just like new. I get some people worry about leaving things too long so whatever you are comfortable with, they seem to accommodate.

The original design philosophy for the animation was discussed -- the function of the FAST packs, their mounting points, direction of thrust, etc.

I'm not ordering from AE until they ship (or reply) regarding the SV-51 leg

Yeah, they've gone from a favorite of mine to "if all else fails" in quick order. For something like the missile set, it's unlikely you'd need customer support though.
