Yeah, so it seems like it was first in the pre order page but not a real page made yet

Thanks for the info.

Wow surprised I scored at HLJ. Even got my confirmation email. Over 1 hour of hitting F5 after the supposed preorder time actually paid off. 

So it seems HLJ started actually accepting orders a short time after the listing popped up. Interesting...

Good thing is I did not pre order this as I was not really into Roy’s vf-1s, already have an arcadia one. Thebad thing is, if this is how preorders are going these days, how am I going to get the YF-21 when it opens for preorder, as that is the one I really want.

That site's payment plan is crazy. First payment of $75 and 2 payments of $212. That adds up more than their list price.

I did say the price is a little high lol i've paid £50 for a deposit now so can relax and not pay anything till november.

That would guarantee me never using them again, and at that point, I'd vote to have them put on a blacklist here. 

If that's the game they are playing, it is a very dangerous one indeed.  But do note that some fellow MWF members have warned us about them before, and so you need to know what risk you are taking to PO a high-demand item with them.  I hope everything works out for all of us who PO'd this with them.  Time will tell.

Yeah I already have an extensive Yamato VF-1 collection at 1/60 scale, so it's not too big a deal for me to say F*** Bandai and their 1/48 crap. But I do want the DX YF-21!

Damn, Nin-Nin is now up to $254.07

That's what I said.  I just took it so I don't have to (hopefully) think about it until it ships.  Never ordered from them before so I hope this will be a good experience.

well i hope i get one, but its only my fault because I was probably one of the first guys on nin nin originally and screwed up by adding 2 to my cart... then i got two factor authorization crap from amazon, then refreshed ami ami...

You're not the only one - I also added three in the first round and missed out by the time I had removed two. On the second release, I was lucky and made sure I only clicked on the Add to Cart button once. 

Had hoped to snag a second one but will count my blessings as I know how it hurts to miss out totally as I did with the previous VF1s PO.

I'm waiting for that one actually.

Keep Okini open guys, as you might get one there - https://okini.land/en/21236-dx-chogokin-vf-1s-valkyrie-roy-focker-special-bandai-spirits.html

Managed to get one in at HLJ. They came through for me with Hikaru's 1S (the irony of having to join the PO rush while in Japan for the Crossover Live), so happy I got Roy's too. Hope those who missed out can get one around release date.

Guess I and several others will be finding out in November then. I'll worry about it then. 

Having been scammed by Chinese ebay sellers a few times before, I am not too worried about not being able to get my money back through my CC company.  But Lolicon is right that the signs are all out there - they are now on to the 6th round of price increase now (26,490 yen), and there's no sign of stopping...

These Bandai pre-orders really do seem to get worse and worse with each release. I don't get why there's even a pre-order if they decide to make a miniscule amount that won't even satisfy 10% of the demand. These things are literally selling out in seconds each time. You'd think someone would have a clue and say "hey, we should make more!"

But the boss probably says, "more profits?! Fired for that crazy talk!"

lol.

 

employee: boss these these news dx vf1 will sell like hot cakes. we sell millions. I tell ya.

boss: millions!? nonsense. we are only making 10 and selling them! then I can buy lunch. profits be damned
