I ordered one Roy through Luna Park and they did come through but it seemed like they were the last to get shipments out.  Mine also said it was in shipping for the longest time and finally went through last week and I got it last tuesday through DHL.

Thanks, makes me feel better that you got yours.  I will email them again.  They seem to respond quickly to mails.

Maybe they have some extra 1st batch stock .   But the tv super did not open preorder until July .  Was your June order something else ?

Sorry, yes, it was July.  I think I'll contact them to make sure my order doesn't go into limbo.  Thanks.

Has anyone ordered the Roy DX from Luna Park and actually received their item?  They sent me a tracking number on Nov 30th but it still says shipment info received. 

Yep, I already got mine from Luna Park. I had the shipping info received for a couple of days but then DHL got it moving.

nothing here either atm.


They use multiple locations to preorder the items to get around the limit ,    so it can take around a week or so to get the item from 1 location to their main warehouse.

Thank you for the information. I wasn't aware, but it makes plenty of sense. I'm not expecting it anytime before the end of the year anyways due to all the delays (it's to be expected).

Ok, time to get SUPER anal about the Super Packs.  Question is about the HMMP-02

Seems like Bandai and Yamato have different opinions on this, ad even Tenjin varies this between box art. 

Is there supposed to be a designated left and right HMMP-02 used on both left and right NP-BP-01 (therefore appearing symmetrical), or is it supposed to be just one HMMP-02 which is used on both left and right NP-BP-01?

Interestingly, in that Tenjin DYRL pic, Roy's AMM-1 missiles are both on a single pylon and the other 3 in skull squadron have 2 AMM-1 on 2 pylons.  Roy's are accurate to the anime, so why are the others done incorrectly?

Weird, another detail I didn't notice.  I was just thinking about the location of the little red dot on the HMMP-002, but now that you mention the missiles.....

Max, Kakizaki and Hikaru were added in after, along with the weapons packs to Roy's Strike.  The original box art didn't have the extra stuff.

When I built my 1/72 Hasegawa, I made the HMMP-02 all the same so they are all interchangeable.

Could the placement of red dot on the HMMP-02 be another variance between SDFM and DYRL?  After all, we don't see strike cannons in SDFM. 

This is an easy enough thing for me to hand-wave, personally.  Perhaps the (fictional) manufacturers started early production runs differentiating the sensor/light placement as left or right, then realized the interchangeability of the store made it pointless to do so, resulting in the decision to produce all further versions with the sensor/light positioned in the same place in the name of efficiency.  Ergo, you have fewer in inventory with the sensor on the lower starboard corner of the front of the HMMP-02, but they do exist.

The red dot on the packs from the movie varies.

Also Hikaru's AMM-1 (x2) is also using one pylon like Roy's artwork from this shot.

But then, one/two pylon/s or not, does it really carry such armaments based on this image? :rolleyes:

Lol, sorry guys, just me being bored and looking for something to talk about.

 

In the end, I think we may have to chalk it up to animation errors, and it's a level of detail that even the creators, animators and  toy companies never even paid attention to.

Lol, even in the same image they are different, not just the pylons....the little red dots on the HMMP-02....Max and Kakizaki are both symmetrical, Hikaru has both lefties (left from his point of view).

Never noticed that mistake in that scene!!

And I've lost count how many times I've watched DYRL?

Shame on me.

Frankly, I'm not sure anything "normal" exists at this point.  Prices are crazy across the board, and I can't find any two vendors with similar shipping costs.

The new normal is abnormal.

It was my understanding that Takatoku was the manufacturer of this figure. How did the Bandai logo get branded on the box and figure?
For reference, I am aware that Takatoku was later acquired by Matsuhiro, but that still doesn't explain how the Bandai logo got branded on the box/figure.

Has anyone else received a message from Kurama Toys Online on arrival of the TV SSPs?  The cost to ship via FEDEX to California is 75.00 USD.  Is that .... normal?

It is not normal, but it is current; I was charged ~$75 from Mandarake for shipping to mid-east coast USA at the beginning of December for a VF item.

I just received an email yesterday from them asking if I wanted to upgrade to FedEx (which I did) and that they’ll be shipping this December.

Wow! Looks kinda like they’re charging you per item.

Right? I might as well ask them to ship one at a time if that's the case. Haha, oh wells.  I'll figure it out somehow.  Just wondering if anyone was seeing a situation similar and if they found a work around.  Thanks!
