Oh man. Are you sure its not post Roy PO PTSD? ..Sorry didnt mean to kid around.:sorry:

Am hearing abt the chaos in US on the news daily. 
Hopes it will turn out negative, in the meantime, take the most upmost care and keep the faith.

:aggressive:

Thanks! My symptoms have been mild, fortunately, as I'm in good health and all. The first 24 hours of symptoms were the worst, though. I felt like Bruce Wayne after losing to Bane and being left in the pit. :lol:

I'm way more concerned about getting a Roy PO at a non-scalper price than I am about my COVID situation. :rofl:

me too. 33,000 yen shipped. now if nin nin dont come through or luna park, i have a third shot lol

Yeah, I felt the same way about my nin-nin order, and you only pay 20% up front with mykombini and they let you select SAL small packet for shipping (hopefully that will be available again by December). And no BS PayPal fees like Nin-nin either. I went for it as insurance.

Remember, there's like a 99% chance we will be getting a DYRL Roy.  A TV VF-1S Hikaru is also pretty likely.

So if you're weighing paying inflated prices for this release, keep in mind that you'll have 1, maybe 2 more chances at scoring a PO on a very similar toy.  I know some people want every single release in this line, but if not, you've got a couple more chances at scoring a Skull Leader (just sand display-stand) at pre-order prices.

If I was going to just get one release of the yellow 1S, it would be Roy's rather than Hikaru's. I already have Hikaru's TV 1J so I'd want Roy to have all the TV characters.

Yeah, that’s too steep for me at this point.

Sorry to hear about your health situation. Hope things continue to improve.

Thanks! I'm much better today than I was yesterday. Just a headache and some minor aches and a cough. But I'm on quarantine for the time being so I'm just watching Youtube and checking for Roy POs. :lol:

Tempting to pre-order in case Nin-Nin cancels on me.  Anyone have prior experience with My Kombini (packaging/reliability/etc)?

OK you guys just convinced me to get an insurance with MyKombini… deposit paid.

I've only ordered a handful of times. They did cancel once on me for something I put down a deposit on, so I consider them as unreliable when it comes to high demand items.

Release date is last week of November/ first week of December either on Amiami or Manda. Give it a few days in order for the store to get stock in.

Both have DHL if you want it on time for Christmas if the courier services are not overwhelmed with packages and hoping not to get a second wave of what's going on globally. 

Isn't correct to say if we have a crappy summer season, winter is just as bad?

 

Winter is bad in this part of the world, it would be disappointing to have a bad summer too I hope I can buy one thanks for the reply

MyKombini can kick rocks. I full paid for two VF-31A's back in the day, they cancelled both of them and then immediately relisted them at a higher price on the DAY of release.

I haven't done business with them since, nor will I.

Itchy F5 finger eh? :rolleyes:

Awaiting the GBP!! Look at October timelines for new reveals..

It should be p-bandai too since its an add on part...

Although with the TV supers, i wouldnt mind a DX 1A CF as a filler release! :search:

Or also where is TV kakizaki bandai! :5:

Yup!!! I’m all addicted to the F5 now. Lol. October makes sense.

Crazy. I never realized that CDJapan does additional releases from their listing (aside from proxy). They’re usually out in sec on PO night and I always find out immediately when they open it. Just never get past the cart to payment.

I've placed a handful of orders with mykombini over the years: super parts sets for the VF-31 Valks, some Hi-Metal Rs.  I haven't had an issue...yet.

And there's the other side of the coin. :unsure:

Alas, they're about as controversial around these parts as N-Y, especially if you have an issue with an order. There were plenty of threads a couple years back IIRC. Anyway, if you are okay with the inflated price, keep the order as a backup and continue to look for an open slot at one of the vetted stores like AJ, Ami, CDJ, or HLJ. It seems more will open up in due course.

This is how I'm doing it, although my backup is at another store that already noted they will refund my purchase if their stock doesn't come in.

Yes, they refunded me 2 nanoseconds before the items got relisted. 

Nin Nin is another proceed with caution store, but I've not been personally burned by them.

It's funny because I firmly believe that N-Y has been living off of the goodwill they generated by fulfilling everyone's 31A pre-orders. But looking around the forums a lot of people are getting sick of their nonsense...again.

Personally my experience with N-Y isn't horrible, they were quick to upgrade and ship my 0D after I paid for upgraded shipping to UPS. I'm waiting on the same for two SHF Iron Man figures, and then for EMS to resume shipping to the states for the remainder of my N-Y orders so that I can be done with them too.
