More retailers will open up, plus you can order through proxies to the p-Bandai site itself. AE can usually get the TWE items and I don't think they've popped up yet.

How do you order through proxies?  I'm new to all of this so apologies for possibly stupid questions.

Just ordered the 1J with the GBP armor from Luna Park Toys.  ¥38,500 + ¥5,000 shipping.  Payment up front :( (but at least my CDN dollar is doing well right now).

Don't know if it'll be cheaper at other places, but I'm sooo tired of the F5 button ;)

Essentially pick a proxy service (you can research them via Google) and follow their guidelines...all of them will generally have an intro page on how to use their services...for example...

https://www.fromjapan.co.jp/sp/introduction/en/

https://zenmarket.jp/en/

https://neokyo.com/en

...to name a few.....

This is not the correct thread to go into full detail on how to use a proxy....this will be for posting links to POs and the chatter that will be generated on PO night and during POs in general....

I am sure there must be an existing thread on proxies...do a search...or as I suggested, you best bet is to research using Google

thank you very much!  I thought proxy ordering meant disguising your IP address somehow (like using a VPN) so thank you for clearing that up.  I will likely try to order through a third party vendor that ships to the US.

Do you think other retailers will offer the standalone set (besides the ones listed on the first page)?  I tried ordering through anime-export and thought the order was received, but when I check my account now, the order disappeared.  So I will need to try again with another retailer.

Oh nice.  Liking this pinned thread!  I posted this in the GBP thread before I saw this new one:

Unfortunately, there are very few sites that carry Tamashii Web Exclusive items.....thus the need to try and source a proxy when the option to order via one of the sites is no longer available

It will likely be cheaper at a few sites on PO day, but availability that day at retail becomes part of the fun. Sometimes it is nice to just pay the markup and not worry. I've used Luna Park before and they delivered fine.

FromJapan I only use to buy auction stuff now and don't even try TWEs anymore. Granted, I haven't tried with this one since I'm going for the combo sets. But FJ has been too difficult to get TWEs the past few goes.

Oh Gosh, I kind of want to pull the trigger as well.  I'm too old for the F5 nonsense.

Exactly. That’s a prime example of what will happen to the rest. The TWEs are getting too difficult to acquire. So, I’m a fan of telling people to try Google like the rest of us and Godspeed. There’s a bit more of an even playing field for general releases oddly enough.

Yeah From Japan was great while it lasted.  I haven't found a suitable replacement...

How much cheaper would you really be able to get it anyway?  Maybe $40-$50 less?  If it relieves you of the anxiety of having to F5 then maybe it's worth the little extra $$$

I also don't feel like paying up front.  General store releases typically do not require up front payment.

I've used White Rabbit Express and had great success with them.

yup i used them once before.  apparently , i'm going to be using them again since the armored parts set without the VF-1J valk itself is a TWE.  honestly, if it goes without drama like last time i'll be happy.

I can understand that.  Especially since it'll probably take 6 months or more before you receive it.

How can you miss a PO that has not started? 

I think they are trying to say that some vendors have already sold out of their allotment, however there are still a couple that have not started their PO yet...so there's still some hope.

LOL....

I have personally never used any of them....

I am still more concerned with the general release items....at 33,000 JPY for the combo....perhaps the frenzy will not be as bad?

Luna park doesn't ship to USA? No way to change shipping method from EMS? Am I missing something?

They ship to the USA. just contact them to change it to DHL or FedEx now, or wait until release.

I couldn't check out with my paypal, but I placed an order with my cc :) They do claim to be using EMS, which is still not available to the USA?

Great we'll all cash in our 1 million combined store credit.

I know, just wanted to give the link to add to the list of pre-orders. I've had good and bad transactions with them.

This got me thinking that, for fun, we should start a sub-thread somewhere and have folks post how much store credit they have at NY for unfulfilled/canceled orders.  I'd be curious to know how much buying power we all have collectively from botched orders.  :D
