Got tracking from Nin Nin, glad to see they came through! I'm relieved! Fedex Priority, should receive Roy early next week, hope everyone else's orders go through.

Friend of mine just got their shipping confirmation & tracking from Nin nin as well

Interesting.  My NNG Roy came in at $225 unit price.  No word on shipping as far as the order status.  I did open a ticket and I did get a response.  They told me their stock delivery was a bit late due to COVID, but that they expect to ship next week as soon as they can get to it.

Really hoping my ebay pre-order works out.  I've never had a problem so far being picky about my sellers.  It was a lot cheaper than Nin Nin and free shipping.  If it pans out, I'll be selling my Hikaru VF-1S which I bought in case this was never released so I could paint it yellow instead of red.  Glad I didn't have to, because this pretty much completes my collection other than the upcoming Kitzconcept figures.  I would have been satisfied with my 1/60 DYRL Roy, but if I'm not mistaken, this DX is one of only 2 TV Roys ever released(?).  That seems strange to me, especially since Roy seems to be the most popular and expensive.

I randomly checked Amiami earlier and it was listed as "preorder closed". I checked again just now and it's "orders closed". Not sure to read too much into that but I suspect if any pop up there it will be from people who cancel at the last minute.

We may have been of the same batch (paid $225 as well) got my email from them around 11:30 east coast time. Its already tracking in FedEx app.

I’m been monitoring the major retailers for orders opening up again and the only one that has recently is CDJ. It was open for approx 20 mins, but sadly it was 1:48AM AEST and I was asleep.

Hobby search opened up too, added to cart but was cart jacked at the last step yesterday.

I’m in the first batch with NNG’s Roy preorder as well, but would probably wait a bit more than a week before escalating things with them. 

They have delivered my prior orders and I am cautiously optimistic that they will come through. 

Here’s a suggestion: how about all of us NNG buyers keep track of when/how much our preorders were, and let others know once we have shipment updates so at least we all know if they had systematically fulfilled the pricier orders before the cheaper ones. That “evidence” would probably help our case more than spam emails asking “where’s my stuff”?

Rdrunner:  1x Roy DX @ 17,820 yen ordered on July 3

i put in 2 orders for roy on po night.  the one place later on in the night at a higher price has been shipped by nin nin... <_<  the earlier one only has payment confirmed...

NNG has replied to my ticket. I asked if I needed to upgrade from EMS to UPS/DHL. They said they should upgrade it automatically and will let me know when it ships.

I am happy to see that quite a few others have already received tracking info from them. Fingers crossed I will get a tracking number on Monday.

I placed a ticket with Nin Nin to upgrade my shipping to DHL/Fedex, since I foolishly chose EMS. Hope it comes through.

 Nin Nin order: Shinobi Rendar 1 x Roy @ $225.29 ordered July 3rd

Got a response this morning telling me they will update the shipping in my order. Still no shipping notification though.

I got no tracking too, preparing in progress since 3:53pm Japan time.

Seems like we are in the same situation. However I’m not too worried yet because it does seem that there is a lot of stock going around in Hong Kong at the moment, which may suggest that Bandai had really upped the production volume for this one.

Looks like we are. I believe you're right on the stock situation. The NNG even has it available to buy atm. Hopefully it is the case they're shipping as many as they can during the day and it's only a matter of time before we get a shipping notification.

Just slightly over 25k from this AJ seller and they ship overseas. 3k to ship to USA.

Thanks for the link! I nabbed one. Saw it earlier but forgot that they show the prices inclusive of tax until you checkout. Now I can give my super pack to Roy instead of incorrectly putting it on TV Hikaru lol.

You're welcome.

I went ahead and got one for myself since, with my Amazon points, it ended up being only a few bucks more than if I preordered from Amiami, assuming the shipping will be the same as the YF-29 set (boxes are almost exactly the same size).

Ahhhh. Do you know what shipping carrier they're using? I can't figure it out.

Last time I dealt with one of these non Prime 3rd party deals they were shipping surface.

Standard is Air Mail or SAL.

Priority is EMS or DHL, from what I recall seeing on my shipments.

Just a heads up. It looks like it charging US tax after it backs JP tax out. If that is DHL it's not a bad deal. If it's surface, it sucks.

Interesting. I didn't get dinged for US tax.

Shipping is global priority which is DHL for me.

There is so such thing as a US Tax.  There is a possibility of being charged a State sale tax depending on where in the USA you live.

I got charged ¥25,273 for the Roy + ¥3045 Priority shipping.

States are part of the US, if you really want be that pedantic.

EDIT: Nevermind, thinking of two different things. Dammit shouldn't post before my morning coffee.
