Adding to the Nin Nin experience...

Received email confirmation on Monday that my order shipped by DHL Priority. Currently en route from OH and should be delivered tomorrow. So doesn't appear to be any funny business going. I remember paying just under $300 with express shipping option to the US.

Ordered from Nin Nin as well, and Fed Ex isn't messing around I wasn't expecting it till tomorrow but it's now due to arrive today with a snowstorm in full swing. 

Also, what was the release on the super parts set tv version? People are saying theirs are on the way. I ordered from Anime Export and it's still listed as releasing December.

No kidding.  I was supposed to get mine on Thursday but now FedEx is saying TODAY, but I won't be home!  AAARRGH!

Exact same situation. When FedEx first updated it said delivery Thursday, it reached Vegas this morning and is currently out for delivery, that FedEx Priority plays no games. Excited to get my Roy, just Kaki TV 1A and I'm happy with my collection, I'll grab a 1D if I can at retail, not willing to pay more though, 1D would just be a bonus, it's not something I really need.

Heh. I can't wait to get my DX. Is it weird that I kinda wanna track down that garbage bootleg Valkyrie and the old Takatoku as well? I have the Yamato 30th Anniversary 1/60 VF-1S TV Roy and the 1/100 Hi-Metal R VF-1S Focker Strike Valkyrie. It'd be fun to have them all standing there together.

Those Macres units are really hard to track down. Took me for ever to find that one and I'm still looking for the other one that has blue instead of tan there.

I do have one of the Takatoku 1/144's that bootleg was bootlegged from for sale if you're interested. PM me.:good:

Speaking of them all standing together.........:D

I purchased two Roys for $225 unit price (USD) on 07/03.  Still waiting for some news.  Order still shows as "pre-order confirmed."  I had opted DHL/FedEx from the get-go.  Not sweating it just yet...not much at any rate.  All the BS with NY has me gun-shy though.  

I picked up Roy at the same price as well. Hopefully this week they take care of all orders from PO madness. Not gonna lie, I'm refreshing my email like crazy in the evenings lol

So I told fedex I wouldn't be home today but they delivered the package anyway.  They required a signature for delivery and according to FedEx SOMEONE SIGNED FOR IT which is impossible because I live alone.   The package isn't there and I already contacted fedex and they don't know whats going on because they have to call dispatch, who will call the driver, who will call this person and blah blah blah.  Looks like I dont get my Roy after all.  Someone stole my Roy!  FML...

That's BS. In related news, my son's PS5 got delivered yesterday and was left on my doorstep without signature. Kind of surprised it was still there when someone got home.

Back on topic, still waiting for shipping notification from NY and Okini.

That blows @myk, over here they just say it's signed for by "signature not required", or if I'm lucky confirm someone is home before leaving it on the step (without signature).

 

On the bright side, just got my Roy from Nin-Nin delivered, original (no markup) PO pricing, and no extra shipping charges (I paid $40 for FedEx at time of order though).

At least you will have a copy of the DX VF-1s Roy TV version right @HG Blows (before the prices start to climb into unreachable territory)? 

Edit: I was also considering a copy as well, but I rather wait for the eventual DX YF-21 (if it hasn't been pooched).

Wow that's some crap, I hope you can get it sorted out. After stressing about Nin Nin even fulfilling orders, having your Roy held up on the last leg of his journey has got to be frustrating. Fedex has pulled that with me before, they got a signature, but couldn't even tell me who signed it. That was Chogokin X Figuarts Hulkbuster, I was livid, I got it sorted and FedEx eventually made the delivery, but it was a crap show.

Anyone order from Luna park? Anyone hear anything from them?

Got a shipping notification from them on Sunday, shipped via DHL, but no updates on DHL’s site beyond the initial “shipping information received”.

I once had a FedEx package wrongly delivered to a business instead of my home. It was signed for and they knew exactly where the package was delivered. I called them up and told them. End result I was told to contact the shipper to file a claim because FedEx didn't want to waste the time searching for the misdelivered package. I hope they don't pull this on you and ever since then I have tried to avoid FedEx as much as possible.

Anyone else have issues with the air brake not sitting flush? Any remedy for it?

The air brake on one of my VF-1J's doesn't sit flush either. Is this normal? No issues on the other one though.

Got it and she's a beauty.  Yeah the head sculpt is different but it more TV accurate.   I've collected every one of these DX VF-1 (not counting Fast Packs) but if they released a Movie edition of the VF-1S I think I'd pass.  The differences between the TV and Movie are too minor to warrant purchasing almost the same toy.
