    That's cool of them. I wish Bandai actually cared about their US customers who import their products. The worst is getting a defective web exclusive.

    That's good to know. I wasn't aware that GSC would deal directly with US based customers. I know Bandai of Japan doesn't so I never really thought about contacting GSC.

    I've never tried preordering a Star War figuart before. That was insane. I swear Phasma was only on Amiami for 30 seconds before it went out of stock. I wasn't able to get one.

    It keeps timing out when I get to the page where it asks for my payment and shipping methods.

    Thought I missed both Phasma and Decade as the page was taking so long and for a little bit both order pages said orders were closed after about a minute. But it went through and they came back to open status during that. *shrug*

    On the flip side, Amazon cancelled ANOTHER pre-order. :'( Mario Play Set D... Fortunately that was still available on BBTS, so I just grabbed that, Minato, and Omegamon (Our War Game) there. Fuck you Amazon. And Bluefin for clearly lying about working on the issue and things getting better.

    I got mine and it was gone by the time I got confirmation and went back to the page. Seems like it hasn't gone up at the other sites yet so happy hunting!

    Looks like preorders are sold out now too.

    Phasma and Luke obtained, now I just need Decade. Hopefully he'll go back up for sale at the next hour.

    Yeah, seriously. I got one in my cart and it was taking minutes to log in. I went on the product page through my iPad while I was still trying to log on through my comp and noticed that preorders were already closed while I was still trying to log in. After 5 minutes, I was able to place my order, so hopefully I secured a PO even after it said that POs were closed.

    I ordered them separately because I didn't want to spend the extra minute trying to load the product page and cart.

    It took me 8 minutes to complete the order. I thought I was screwed.

    Nippon Yasan sent a notification saying War Machine Mark 2 is coming October 23rd instead of the 31st. A week earlier than the intended release date.

    Not really. NY defaults most new TWE listings to the end of its release month, then updates the actual ETA once release dates for that month's exclusives start going up on the webshop at the end of the previous month. They're just updating to what no one knew until just recently.

    S.H.Figuarts ?????? ???2 | ????????? | ???????????

    The release dates for October exclusives just went up on the webshop in the last couple days; War Machine's actually a 15 Oct. release, but with other exclusives not coming out until the 23rd (SHF Busou Chaser and others), I guess they don't either get all their stock, or don't start processing everything, until all the web exclusives are in.
