Is nin -nin reliable , I mean will the fulfill their orders i am  surprised they open their order early.  I remeber they had the max tv open early but I decided to go with someone else since I was not sure they could actually fulfill the order.

Yeah, I ordered these missile sets a long, long time ago and they delivered.  I'm hoping I can get more chogokin from them in the future.

They normally open, much earlier than the stipulated order window on pre order day, around 3-4 hours earlier, so you should take note on that

So they more then likely will not be able to fulfill the order dam . I have never been able to snag any of them expect for the first one vf 1a after they and even before that it's been imposible. I get stuck with nippon yassin

If the international market doesn't matter, then why does the special stand have English text rather than Japanese text?

 

You have clearly never been to Japan.

EDIT - not trying to knock you, but putting English on things is crazy common there and not just for tourist purposes... it's like English text makes things 'mainstream'. 

EDIT II - also, English is a common tongue within the Macross universe.

That's the next question here.

For the upcoming DX GBP Armour to be released, we know that the DX 1J will be re-released however, Bandai still has not mentioned that if the DX GBP Armour set will include the Gray Goggle 1J head or not. 

I wouldn't be surprised if they did a gray goggle 1J. I wonder if, they do the GBP, which seems like a natural, would they do it as a set or just sell the armour separately? So far, the accessories have been sold separately so have to see. GBP is one I never managed to get in my collection, so would be great, I even didnt go for the Arcadia re-issue just on the chance for a Bandai one ;)

Because English is cool... and Japanese is not.  :p

Japanese culture has reflected this sort of inferiority complex -- particularly concerning the language -- ever since the end of WWII, and whenever clear, direct communication is not required (be it advertising, public relations, politics, etc.), the misuse of English is prevalent in Japanese media.

For a current example, look at how rapidly the use of "social distance" (ソーシャルディスタンス) is replacing the Japanese "3つの密" in political discourse, especially on television.  Public speakers use English loan words to make themselves seem more educated or intelligent, or simply to obfuscate (as politicians are so apt to do), and commercial advertising accelerates this trend.  

Japanese clothing brands (particularly for children) rely heavily on text-based designs, about 10% proper English, 5% French, 85% broken English... and 0% Japanese.  If you actually see a shirt with Japanese writing on it, it's being worn by a foreign resident who likely ordered it from a foreign country.

This would be a fashion crime in Japan.  :lol:
