Proof or it didn't happen
Interestingly, the PSX listing a) no longer has free shipping b) is "Add to Cart" instead of "Preorder Now".
Shipped? Say what?!
I’ll send the proof when I get the parcel
I can further corroborate this. Ordered one yesterday after reading this thread and it's gone to "shipped" within a day with a tracking number.
So, barring some bizarre technical error from PSX, would this be the first reported case of a 3P product releasing earlier than slated? Magna's not supposed to be due until October...
so I don't have to scroll through page after page of drooling and the like, whats the total cost of the two pieces?
Inventa hasn't been listed anywhere yet, so we can only go by Magna's $120 USD price tag and assume the second part will be the same.
Not 100% sure, but I don't think the price of the what ever the other part is named has been released.
Any Asian retailers with this for sale ?
Except for shipping proximity, you're not going to find any benefits from the Asian retailers over the other major ones. MMC has standardized pricing across the board, and their main Asian retail point I believe is their own Planet Steel Express storefront.
 Yeah, from a cursory glance, Asian retailers aren't really supported by MMC. Robotkingdom doesn't carry their stuff at all, and ebay sellers like Bababobo are actually more expensive than their North American retail list prices, probably because he's middle-manning, rather than getting his product wholesale.
yeah , im in japan so for me Asian retailers are always more cheaper for me. Be pretty dumb and way more expensive for me to order it from anywhere else
Then I think Planet Steel Express will still be your best option, although as has been pointed out above, you've missed out on the free pre-order shipping.
yeah I just looked as I need two of these ( 2 kids ) and shipping for each one is 45 dollars so a total of 90 bucks for me here in japan. maybe Ill wait for the 2nd part to come out and maybe get it all at once
MMC stopped selling to Robotkingdom years ago because of reasons (which I don't remember or never were announced), and PSX was their answer to having a prominent store in Asia. IIRC
Also, if you can find PSX's TaoBao listings, I think prices are cheaper there. Such as this: 【预订】MMC R35天豹 单体-淘宝网
I wouldn't even know where to begin how to work with TaoBao, so that didn't even come to mind, but you're probably right on that.
Yeah, I forgot it was MMC that had whatever dispute it was with Robot Kingdom. Was thinking it was somebody else for some reason (they don't carry Fansproject or Maketoys stuff, either).
Just paid for my pre-order at TCP.
Now put up that Sky pre-order as well MMC...
MMC and FansProject
Want to see what the PSX exclusive is. So don't want to lose out on it but I just don't have the funds for this with NYCC And TFCon's exclusives coming up.
