    @Legate - In or out?

    Edit: I guess not as you're not interested.

    No luck. Chased the links as they were posted on MW but all sold out. I still don't know how people find the link, my searches never find anything, and of course by the time anyone helpfully posts it, all gone.

    Oh well. Would have preferred Mirage over Hayate but maybe later.

    I'm sorry, I didn't see your post. :oops: 
    Thanks for keeping me in mind though.

    That said the '31 just doesn't call to me for some reason.

    Curious, I checked this morning all my usual shops to find that it doesn't appear in HLJ, Okini Land or MyKombini's search results. Although I see there was an HLJ link posted that goes to an "order stop" listing.

    And it appears Amazon Japan had them at some point, but they are now listed by marketplace sellers at a staggering Y49,000. So I'll guess that the combination of VF-31A + Mirage is going to keep secondary market prices for this one crazy high.

    Keep your eyes open for "additional stock" refreshes if you're looking for one. They sometimes pop up intermittently.

    Luna Park is still taking orders with their slight markup (Y27,500). No idea if those will go through or get cancelled, but it's there if you missed it everywhere else:

    https://www.lunapark.store/product-...airos-plus-mirage-farina-jenius-japan-version

    They also seem to still be taking orders for Hayate's 31AX at Y29,800:

    Amazon.jp had some stock @deruberhanyok and then the 3rd party scalpers kicked in with their jacked up pricing.

    Its either you got a copy and secured via email conformation or drowned in sea of others that didn't get one.

    AJ was a little confusing. Normally it shows the price and order button on the main page but this time it only had "See Buying Options" which usually indicates 3rd party. However, it was actually the AJ. Several peeps landed it here. It was in my cart but took me awhile to be aware of the change and got cart jacked. Fortunately, I did land at HLJ.

    Idunno guys, this seems pretty tame for a Macross preorder night. I don't see any mention of hangovers or rage-mashed broken F5 keys. :)

    Seems like a lot of people are just over dealing with it. I would say that was one of the tougher preorder nights in a while.

    I must be getting old, I tried but the door shut on me at every turn. PO night used to be easier at least for me.

    Really wish I knew how you guys "find" it on AJ. All of my searches there find nothing and then by the time a link appears on MW or here, it's too late. What was the total price at AJ?

    Maybe I'll go LP, they came through for me once before so I'm not concerned about that. Just hate paying markup prices.

    Any 31ax pre-orders will be a bloodfest as its the new and trending thing due to the popularity of Delta.

    We've got Haya Haya and now Mirage. Next up will either be Arad/Chucky or the Drakens.

    This was one of the hardest pre-orders to get in for Mirage. Its get one via Luna or wait for release date.

    I got lucky and snagged one from AJ. Wondering if their new system is to hide it so bots can't find it?

    Here is the total for mine:
    Item(s) Subtotal:
    ¥ 24,820
    Shipping & Handling:
    ¥ 3,967
    Total:
    ¥ 28,787

    Edit: I know that just ads salt to the wound.

    Hope everyone that wanted the DX Mirage VF-31AX was able to get a preorder in. I passed, looks awesome but I’ll probably just wait for an order of Hayate’s to open up.

    Thanks. Good to know the baseline at least. No salt, it's all good. :) 

    LP's total shipped price is 32,500 which is around $285 (using Google) vs. yours which is around $253. So $32 = "too bad so sad" tax.

    If only LP still had a coupon that worked, the first (and only) time I used them there was a 2,000 NEWCUSTOMER coupon but it's not working now. That would make it more palatable.

    Get Mirage’s 31ax in March @OCProwl as it’s a three month wait after Haya Haya’s 31ax.

    You got other stuff to keep you busy (Lego, 52toys Beast/Mega Box etc..)
