I tried to do a PO but on checkout it is asking for a credit card for payment. Will payment be charged later?

Sorry for the late reply, they charged a 1.25dollar to test the payment i guess then the rest will only be charged when items arrive

Thanks for checking dude! :hi: Unfortunately for me their pre-order is sold out.

That's something you could have done for yourself by reading their FAQs on their website instead of waiting for an answer here. Most retailers will have that information available.

I looked but couldn't find any language that had their terms and conditions for pre-orders. BBTS says upfront there is a non refundable deposit.

Should have looked harder, it was in their FAQs :)

Lots of Chogokin Gundam Factory Yokohama posted in YAJ. Cheapest buy it now I can find: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/q423513657 @ 31.8k yen with free domestic shipping.  Size of this one is also roughly 1/100 just like Metal Builds or Metal Composites. MSRP is 22k yen though considering that you need to go and line up at Yokohama to get this, I think the price is fine.

Hey @anubis20. Looks like somebody photoshopped the Metal Build logo in there. :unsure:

From Tamashii site, it's under Metal Robot Damashii.

Probably it's the same artist who designed that '100' codex on Hikaru's VF-1S. :rolleyes:

What's your feedback on it? Is it better than a metal build or metal composite?

Well the it is heavy and lots part are metal. The legs are good and capable of doing poses. However, the waist part can barely move left or right.
It has lights and battery inside so the head part and chest part will light up but very hard to see cuz they got covered. Over all a worth price at 22000 but not worthy 500 usd

I look at these earlier this year. The options are cool but the rumor has it that it will only be sold in Japan. So per the usual us Americans will have to pay an  "import tax" per say to get our hands on it. Hopefully they dont release the parts seperately over time.

The real question is are these going to be limited edition/limited production type thing? If so I may bite down and get one now rather than later if/when it reaches 500-600

I believe Gundam Factory Yokohama is supposed to be open until March 2022, it would be weird for them to not keep the their 'flagship' souvenir in stock through that period. Personally I would guess we would be able to buy it at around ~26000yen + shipping off resellers once the initial craze settles down. Tbh, the price on yahoo auction is not too bad right now considering how hard it is to get one.
