Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

The black heatshield really looks nice on Hikaru's 1S. Was there any specific reason as to why he's the only one have a painted heatshield whereas Roy's and Max's have black? Thought it should be consistent when you get promoted to leader rank.

Anyways, for those who's still looking for Roy's or late on trying to acquire them, I have a feeling that in the next week or so there will be some posts in the F/S thread from those who ordered multiples from various stores in case their orders is not going to be fulfilled.

Is there an end to this?  I just dropped $314 for Roy.  Max cost me $250.  Kaki and Hikaru was $280 each.  Now $314 for Roy?  I honestly don’t know how to feel about this.

Try getting into cars and go-fast parts; macross money won't seem so painful...

For those that ordered through Nin Nin and received a shipping notice, but haven't seen any progress, my package is officially in the hands of FedEx and is on the way. No delivery date yet, but is is finally moving. 

Same here. Mine is moving through the system, but no estimated delivery date yet.

Same here... Wonder if they actually have stock, or go hunting for it afterwards. 

Actually mine just updated as being picked up by DHL, arriving here in the states Thursday Dec.03. So fairly quick! 

Now my eBay backup might take a bit longer... Before Christmas basically.

I did see that listing @betocc, however they were asking close to mid 26k yen (not including s&h) to Canada. 

 

I'm sure those orders will be shipped soon, we just need to learn to be patient :D I have another order I placed a day after the ones shipped and that one is on Preparing for Shipment, hopefully it will be shipped by tomorrow.

Patient? In MacrossWorld, PATIENT is a word that's unheard of. When it comes to new toys there's no such thing as patient. :diablo:

 

:rofl:

As long as the orders are in "preparing for shipment" in Amazon JP, your order is confirmed. There will not be any cancellation from the seller unless you cancel the order yourself before it ships.

Even if the sellers are not Amazon Japan, as long as the orders are fulfilled by Amazon, you can even rest more assured because it is based on stocks on hand.

They are probably taking a while because the whole world is ordering Roy at the same time.

Fedex just confirmed my taxes for Roy. Man that is painful. I was thinking that the Ebay seller had a decent price but I forgot about the taxes before pulling the trigger. I'm too used to Amazon Japan now where the taxes are paid up front and you know the total cost. $52 in taxes for a total of $477 Canadian or $368 USD. What a kick in the junk. Next time I'll wait for an Amazon seller that ships to North America. I managed to score one but I had to cancel it because I could not cancel my Ebay order. It was around $80 cheaper from the Amazon seller to my door. Anyway Roy is due to be delivered on Thursday so at least it's relatively fast shipping.

That's $477 CND only for the DX VF-1s Roy TV Version only without the TV Supers @Paco Grande

The TV Supers are going to add you another couple of hundred right there...

That's half your monthly paycheck gone right there (or a flight back into my secondary home of Toronto for me if a vaccine is ready).

Is it too soon to say that I'm a little bummed that 1D is TWE? Like, I really get a rush out of PO madness. I think I have a problem...

I WANT ALL THE MACROSS

:crazy:

Haha, I feel similar but mostly because I don’t like paying more AND up front.

Nin Nin got back to me and told me their shipments are running late due to COVID so I’ll get a shipping invoice early next week (I used private warehouse because COVID was making knowing what shipping would be like at the time of order rough). Given my PayPal protection lasts through December 30th I guess I have no reason to disbelieve them. For reference my order went in when it was $260.
