Yep, order cancelled, and hit submit on my Okini Land one, so hopefully I've got two separate orders in place.  Guess we'll see how things turn out in July. ^_^ 

Congrats. You should be safe with two orders, fingers crossed. I put in one from BIJ yesterday, and was gonna use NNG with a voucher for my backup, but got cart jacked and so went with Okini land instead.

Yeah, I think it went off sale right as I finished with Paypal, so glad I had the "buy" button up by the time my FJ order was confirmed dead.  I might have gotten one of the last ones at Okini, so I actually wouldn't be too surprised if I get a cancellation from them, but all I can do is wait.

I'm hitting on the realization that duplicates are probably ridiculous, so I might be having a massive garage sale someday, but I've gotten into the habit of getting at least one backup in case something explodes when I take it out of the box.

Thanks @borgified and @Nerd-linger - I hope by July we might get EMS back again, I hope they would offer an alternative form of shipping otherwise.  I can't imagine FedEx or DHL to be more than 5,200Y - I guess they put in a low base price and jack up the shipping to make the profit.

The main thing is I hope they can get the item, hate to wonder and worry about it for 7 months only to get an email on July 31st to saying they couldn't get it.

Hobby-Genki preorder is not available anymore. Says "There are not enough products in stock" which at least suggests they had an allocation. By no means a sure thing but at least a good sign. Now we just have to hope Bandai keeps up their end.

Congrats to everyone who got it!

 Bought my 1st DX Roy Folker from okini (nvr used them before previously), their shipping and packaging was prompt and good via EMS.

This time the VF1D they offered is slightly markup but I still took with them. Hopefully they see it through in July!!!

And merry xmas to everyone here!

I told people about FromJapan, and now I can't use them anymore as everyone else is.

My backup is staying low-key.

Oh don't worry. Somebody will eventually put that information out. I could do it myself :diablo:

Does that often happen after you get an order confirmation?

I cannot say for certain with Okini Land, because I've only ever gotten one other order with them.  I'm just always careful to manage my expectations when I get an order through that close to an out of stock notice.

I see. Thanks.

I'm actually pretty surprised Bandai thought this would be better as a webshop item, it seems to be in high demand already.  Maybe we'll see a second run again, or maybe a later re-release without the fan racer.

Doubt it. It's still up on their website. High demand items for TWE sell out within minutes.

Well the good (not good?) news is the next two releases will almost certainly be regular releases... so we can all spend those evenings cursing the people who now use those shoe-buying-bots at our retailers.

Wow, Bandai sure makes it a collosal pain in the dick to order this thing.   Have a Japanese addres, but it doesn't take credit cards from outside of Japan.  I tried to pay with Amazon Pay but I'm getting an error message about linking my amazon.o.jp account.

For those who ordered at FJ yesterday as soon as the link was live (but sale hadn’t started), did you get your orders cancelled or are you good?

Mine just got cancelled, but I don't know how close I was to when the link went live.  My charge there didn't go through until about 10:30 PM PST, even though I placed the order closer to 7:30 PM.  They had to go through a round of "Is this the correct item?" with me to confirm the page, for some reason, and my payment wasn't requested until three hours after the initial order.

My FJ payment confirmation was at 9:09pm CST, it got canceled.

I just secured 1D preorder with my friend in Japan. ¥23,760 shipped. He's going to hand deliver it to me when he visits Australia Dec 2021, so a long wait to get mine. Hopefully covid doesn't get in the way of visiting Australia at that time.

Thanks for the info. There were a bunch of people posting about placing the orders over 24 hrs ago though and I’m just curious if those orders were mostly filled or not?

Just checked mykombini and its up!! For that price I wasnt able to resist..ahhhhh!

Crickey ... thanks for the link. Ended up ordering a third one now as I just sold a pair of Yeezys earlier today so had some extra funds.

I've tried Mykombini in the past and they delivered with no problems so know they are reliable.
