Almost anything we're talking about is "easy" to get. If you are willing to pay any price.:D

I'm just glad I got in with okiniland at the lower price. Thanks again @DYRL VF-1S

Of course!  And my man, @Checkmate did me the solid of letting me know when it was first up.  We've been tag teaming on Okini Land since Max 1A

There's so many possible DYRL skull squadron combinations!

Roy 1S, Hikaru + Max + Hayao 1As

Max 1S, Hikaru + Hayao 1As

Hikaru 1S, Max in a blue Queadluun-rau and a plate of steak with an asparagus stripe!

And you need a different 1S for all of them!

 

Personally I'm hoping for a TWE exclusive DYRL Kakizaki 1S, just to mess with everyone.

See, after the VF-31A situation, I'm not sure this is entirely true.  I think they gauge interest to a point, but they may very well cap orders at a certain production limit, regardless of demand.  At least with the strike packs, that seemed to be the case, but if they don't have demand enough to justify a second production run, they may just cut off orders.

Yes, they also have a set cutoff on production and deadline for their preorders, which ever comes earlier. 

The Vf-31a preorder lasted for Months.   It ended about 1 week earlier than the preorder deadline because it reach it's production limit first. 

From Bandai's point of view at the time, the VF-31a is not consider super popular since the preorder lasted for months and it finally reach their 1st  batch production limit just 1 week close to their set deadline.   So no 2nd batch.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that. Bandai hasn't even finished any squadrons on the HMR line, and some of us are still waiting on super parts for the rest of Delta squadron.

Pretty sure Bandai decides what to release next using a dart board. Or laying down a bunch of valk pictures on the ground and seeing which one the company cat decides to sit on.

Also, as I recall, Bandai mistakenly left the pre-orders open on their website after they'd already reached the production limit for the 31a.

that could be true too.   But I think Bandai were somehow able to fullfill those numbers at the end,,   I recall some p-bandai customers getting inform of a 2 week delay but they did received their vf-31a.   If you consider Bandai were to make a 2nd batch, it will normally have a 1 month later release date.   So it highly that Bandai did use the extra time to cover some overbook.   

Everyone that preordered with a regular proxy received their without issue.  It was only some proxy stores like N-Y ,nin-nin games, and Mykombini that seem to have fulfillment issues.      Yeah. vf-31a is one of those exceptions. 

For TWE, I don't wait anymore,   If I think I might want it, I'll just use my proxy to preorder it on opening night.

Tried that route and my order was cancelled. Even going through proxies is becoming much more difficult.

Would a Tenso address work?

No, unfortunately.  P-Bandai doesn't take the Tenso phone # they give you.  And, even if you get a # that works (as I did,) P-Bandai won't accept payment from any source but one that originates from / was issued in Japan.  I tried Rakuten Pay and Amazon Japan Pay.  Rakuten was accepted but days later rejected as it was reported that my form of payment was not issued in Japan.

My FJ order got cancelled but had a backup with Okini. Like others said, I believe this one will be easy to get in YJA after it gets released.

Wishing for a TV Kakizaki for the next announcement (just to complete the squad) but it would probably be DYRL VF-1A Max or VF-1S Roy.

Okini Land reopened their PO.  Cost is higher but can order directly through them.  I believe their shipping to the US is around 26.00 USD.

I ordered 2 and I was offered shipping options around $70 (EMS) and $60 for like a week longer wait time.

I gave in and got one through Kurama Toys (Bandaionline) which I had forgotten all about. $218 usd...not a terrible price I guess.
