Unfortunatlly they do not ship to North America, if they did we would have been all over them long ago but one would think you would have to order a hell of a lot of product to push around if they did. In most cases you have to be a store to sell the products like Robby but the few got in under the wire before questions were asked.  :-X

I got another e-mail from Milestone after contactingt hem and they said although they do not normally deal with Medicom or Hot Toys, they are not against placing on order for the items. He said to ask and that may still may be able to assist. Its worth a shot...better than what we have now.

Well that a plus I guess, it depends on their cost. Will the sell by the 1 MC, box of 12 or will it have to be a bulk order?

Interesting... the last e-mail I got from them was a resounding "no" to Medicom.  Perhaps because they are getting a lot of requests from the former Robby.jp customers they have decided to look into it?

Like Dale said, I guess a lot will depend on how much they want to charge and what type of quantity they need you to order...

I think I'll let my membership just slide into nothingness.  I'll just jump in with the whore reseller that is Jeff if he'll have me.

Another e-mail from this new place...

please do not hesitate to inquire anything after making contract with my company.

Making contract, that just did not read right to me.  :-\

Yeah, I got a similar one.  Not so keen either.  I haven't responded to them at all so I'm pretty sure I'll just let this slide away into memory.  I might regret it later.

I'm still not sure abot this new Milestone place...  in one e-mail they tell me they don't deal with Medicom, then they someone else that they can try.

I'm all for them trying I guess, but when I read stuff like "Lastly we have no obligation to return your deposit or prepaid even in case you agreed this succession" made me sort of nervous to give them any deposits/cash.   :-\

I actually took that to mean they are not taking over and outstanding orders from robby. So if robby owes someone produict or money, theis Milestone is saying they are not responsible.

Robby.jp is officially dead as of tomorrow :'(   It was a good, fun run.  I'll miss thee. 

Very sad that my last box from Robby had the two clone variants in it.  I took that as a good sign of things to come.  Now I'll have to see if HLJ can give me some sort of luck.

Yeah, the death of Robby sucks.  I'm glad that so many of us were able to get in there before they shut out new US accounts - we lucked into a lot of good deals that way.  I'm still not 100% sure on this new place.  I may still pursue a small order for S10 if they can work out a good price (assuming they can even get them), but there is probably no way that I'm risking $4k-$5k on 12+ master cases from a place I've never dealt with before...   :-\
