I am in the United States of America and I paid a preorder fee with KitzConcept.com 18 months ago on 2021-06-16 for a Macross VF-1J (version 2 (some call it version 1.5)) and aside from my order receipt, I have never received any notice of progress of my order. Over the past 12 months, I have emailed their firstname.lastname@example.org a few times, and written several times via their online "contact us" form and have never once received a reply from them. I have also called them a couple times at (852) 2798 9992 during their business hours in Hong Kong (11 hours behind my timezone) and the phone just rings and rings and no one answers.
Has ANYONE in the United States actually received anything directly from ordering via KitzConcept.com ?
In case you want to update the news post, @BaCon, They updated the pre-order count from 1K and 1,888 units. I have a feeling they're gonna need to add more. BBTS and Kitz Conceptz's sites keep selling out before I get to them. if they just waited one more week to announce it...
Thing of beauty right there!
It's sad Harmony Gold is keeping the Robotech license
Wow! "Events have come full circle..." as Ratchet once said. ?
