Have a question for the more experienced Anime Export users.

I requested shipping last Friday (AE was closed due to time difference) but three working days have passed and my order stil shows "staff is packing your order". Haven't received the email requesting to pay shipping yet (I've checked my spam folder). Should I contact them or am I being too anxious??

Had a robot spirits 0080 set in the warehouse nearly a year before requesting shipment together with yellow's bike.
Requested shipment on a thursday and got an email following monday with calculated shipping costs. Paid on same day and it shipped the next day.

That was a year ago before covid. During this time probably add some slippage, it should be around these next few days...

Even if you dont get an email, check into the pay for shipping tab in AE.

:cray:This is where I got my VF-1S preorder from...

I bought a few including some preorders some year and months ago with Nin-Nin. Didn't have any problems with them. And recently, I haven't read any bad things about them compared to NY's so my apologies regarding your VF-1S preorder. Was it Roy's?

For A-E if you don’t hear back from them in 7 days , then you should email them to double check .  They are slow sometimes but they also mess up sometimes too .   Years ago , when I request to ship my alto renewal super parts ,  they ended up taking a month long to ship it out , and once I received it , it was not even the one that I ordered . They ran out of the renewal one and some how shipped me the vf-171ex alto armored parts instead .  They were pretty much the same price at the time and I do kinda want the armor parts so I didn’t complain about it . 

So a couple of days is nothing , only if it gets closer to a month would I then be a bit more worried.

For those that still need TV Fast Packs, Bandai is selling another round of them starting tomorrow 16:00h local time.

https://hobby.dengeki.com/news/1121591/

Since we're in the next page, I'm just going to quote the 2nd batch TV Fast Packs here from the previous page and the warnings on NOT TO USE Nippon-Yasan and Nin-Nin-Game to place orders with.

Thanks for the links. I PO’ed one at AE. :drinks: I wasn’t going to, since what I have in mind is to have all my planned DX Hikaru’s loaded with the DYRL-colored packs. But then some crappy store, for now let’s hide it under the alias of Nippon-Yasan (not the real name), messed up my plan, so I decided to have a go for a TV set. Well, that is until Bandai is planning a Hikaru VF-1A Bundle down the line. Then I can still display all the Valks in DYRL-colored packs with one Supers equipped with the Kite logo. And maybe load the extras to create Dual Strike Valkyrie. :rolleyes:

It's really too bad about NY and nin-nin-game.  I have ordered from both in the past. NY started being a hassle when they wouldn't ship my strike parts.  So eventually they refunded me (after I had forgotten about it completely so I'm pretty lucky).  Nin-nin-game has good prices and shipped my two missile sets.  No problem there.  But with all that is said here, I'm just going to use more reputable sites.

Thanks for the info on preorders, ebay, and everything guys.  And have good holidays.

What's the ballpark estimate for shipping this DX TV-SP from AE nowadays?

Anybody ordered the DYRL-SPs from AE and can comment on the shipping-fees they charged for US addresses?

AE don't(or can't) use EMS anymore, right?   Are they using DHL or something else?

 

I dunno total was just 10800 yen.  It didn't mention shipping cost.

Hey Treatment. I think I just paid Y3990 for a set of DX SSP last week. Since they’re not using EMS to US, I’m guessing DHL? Also when I paid the shipping fee, same said amount is showing between ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ options.

Updated the shipping cost.

Ok, thanks for the info!

AE isn't using DHL, they're using another courier system that hands off to USPS in the US.  I forget the name offhand, but it's discussed in one of the other topics here.

So I checked the tracking number provided in my order, clicked it and it went straight to the JapanPost tracking site but it says the tracking number is wrong/incomplete. I copied the tracking number and pasted it on the DHL tracking site to see if it will be accepted. And it looks like it’s en route now to the US, left AE last Nov 19, with 23rd as the estimated delivery date. :)

I just double-checked. It’s Y3990 not Y3900. ;)

*Original reply updated with the correct shipping cost.

Just want to update my AE DX SSP order. It’s confirmed that they used DHL to ship it to US this time because I just received a text update from DHL On Demand Delivery.

So to give everyone idea on how much might cost to ship it in the US from AE next year’s TV Supers with Missiles, expect from Y3990 (which I paid for DX SSP) to Y4500+/- (since this set comes with missiles).

Hey @Ignacio Ocamica, any update from your order?

Not yet Noel :(

I contacted AE yesterday. My order of the SSP is still showing "our staff is packing your order as we speak". I'll give them a couple more days (I waited more than a year so a couple more days won't hurt) I'm sending my order to Miami so they should charge me more or less the same as your order.

It's Friday 8:56 AM Japan time as I'm typing this reply, so they still have a business day.

Well damn. Not liking what I am reading about NY. I have 3 Roys on PO with them. I did receive their email with the anticipated release date a week (or more) ago, but my nuts are creeping up into my throat after reading through some threads on here. :(

Don't worry. I'm pretty sure it will turn out fine. ;)

I asked proactively for my additional UPS fee, paid $57.00, so I know it will ship.

believe it or not, eBay is becoming my best place for preorders.  Markups are only slight early on with Luna Park.

They did send me my VF-1A Kakizaki with no issue. Was worried after reading, but had no issue with them. However; with all the shade from people here I look to for solid advice I will not be ordering from them again just to be sure.
