Just received the same message for Windblade.

Have found a new supplier, slightly higher price but I am going to place the order to make sure I "secure" - order still not confirmed

Hopefully it is just HLJ. If not it might make sense for me to add Arcee to my order from RK.

If it does cost more I may need to cancel.

I have already ordered and paid for what the rest of the order my main supplier couldn't fill
However I am not 100% convinced it is a confirmed order.

Sadly, the items were more expensive - new price is $45NZ each

Mr.D - if you wish to order Arcee from RK with your stuff, please do so.
I have used your payment to pay for your item in the order mentioned above but can refund on Wednesday if needed

Even having the forced reduction on the order to one, did not guarantee my order
No Fembots for me :cry:

Waiting to see if the order from the secondary supplier is coming ...

Yikes - sorry to hear you're having such trouble Zip. Thanks for trying for us. At $45ea I'm still in... just, but I may have to cancel if it is any more than that. Thanks for keeping us appraised. I look forward to your update, hopefully with good news.

I had to make a quick decision, order from another supplier at a higher price or cancel the order.

I have paid for the items (at $45NZ each) and am currently waiting on shipment notification. There is every chance however that the order will not be filled, as the item went out of stock very quickly after I placed the order.

When I know more, I will update

The saga continues.

After not getting payment request from Japan over the weekend for Arcee and Windblade, I assumed my order was not going to be filled.
I found an alternative supplier for my order and that shipped yesterday.

This morning I got a payment request from Japan, and have paid.


At this stage
- I have paid for an order of 3 Arcee and 2 Windblade from Hong Kong - $45 each, although I have not received a shipping notice
- I have paid for an order of 1 Arcee and 1 Windblade from Hong Kong - $45 each and these have shipped.
- I have paid for an order of 1 Arcee, 1 Chromia and 1 Windblade from Japan, and these will ship shortly - this is my order

I will be able to fill at least one Arcee and one Windblade order from the known shipped items

The supplier has advised that this is being prepared for shipment, so it looks like I should be able to fill all orders and also have a spare Arcee and Windblade

Awesome glad it's sorted :)
Did you want the extra $ now or wait until you know the postage cost?
