I actually received an email from Robby.jp this morning.   :o  It only had to do with their super-clearance sale, so not an actual response or anything, but it must be the first actual email contact from them in a couple of months.  Maybe there is hope?

I dug through my old emails and found the order I placed, so I used that and re-sent it to them.

Man, I just got a headache trying to read that e-mail...   ???

It's hard to tell exactly what is happening in that e-mail because it's so choppy, but since the e-mail mentions liquidating the stock to "repay it about the customer who has the due", I'm assuming that Robby is totally going under.

It looks like the purpose of this e-mail is to ask permission to transfer our info ("Information such as customer's where to make contact and address,etc.") to this new Milestone place.  Milestone must be trying to acquire their customer/client list, either through buyout or merger or something.

I think I'll send an e-mail to this Milestone place and see if they can help shed some light on the topic...

If Robby is going under, then that is very bad news for us Kuby collectors & if true then back to HLJ I guess. Sigh!  :-\

Hopefully you get a response back Jeff, sure like to know WTF is going on.  :-\

Not sure if any other place will supply them, BBTS...  ::)

Well, I sent my e-mail too.

I also sent an e-mail to Robby, but we all know how well they are doing answering e-mail lately...   ::)

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuudge.   :(

I got a whole big message back from Milestone.... and it's not good. 

Quote
Thank you for your prompt reply as to last ROBBY’s mail.

As Mr.Amakata mentioned he has an intention to his account with you to be changed to MILESTONE Inc, if you decided so.

The reason why coming this situation is he told us to finish his business soon later but would not like to bother your smooth business to get merchandises from Japan .

Then we discussed each other and finally he sent this information and introduction of MILESTONE Inc, us.

We are not sure how and when he is going to finish , although if you would like to purchase any collectable stuff from Japan , please do not hesitate to inquire anything after making contract with my company.

here after our introduction and basic memorandum attached and also please refer our web site www@mile-stone.jp

We have three persons for foreign customers.
Mr.TOSHI BOB ONO, Mr.TAK Fujiyama,Ms,Maki WATANABE

Hopefully we would like to be on same boat to spread out Japanese toy culture and get reasonable profit each together.

Finally our specialty is sexy figurines ,trading figure, capsule, and prize .....
We are afraid no can accept Medicom Toys, not our specialty.
Anyway if you would like to order something, please let me know.

thanks and best regards,
 

See the part I bolded?  Yeah, they don't carry Medicom stuff wholesale. :'(

In summary, this is sooooooo not good for us.  It definitely sounds like Robby is closing shop and is just referring his business to Milestone...  :-\

Thanks for posting that e-mail Jeff, damn! Well it was good while it lasted for few that got in under the wire. Beginning of the end so to speak, c'est la vie.  :'(

Well I guess it's back to HLJ for me, never had a problem with them just gotta fork out a bit more $$$.  :-\

Looking around the net a little bit this AM, it looks like a few other Robby customers have started looking for new suppliers too. :P

HLJ is an option, but I don't like the fact that they send you "4 boxes of 12" and not sealed master cases.  Back in the early days (S3 maybe), one of the guys here in MN got "4 boxes" and it wasn't a master case (ie - NO chases!).  I've been nervous to order from them ever since...  :-\

Oh I hear ya Jeff on HLJ but for now, that is the only option for me. Yeah that 4 boxes not sealed in the MC was scarry & it could happen again but I would rather deal with them than say ActionHQ.  ;)  Sure wish Blister would sell internationally.

BBTS, no idea were they get those MC's from. Could have been Robby or HLJ or other.

Well damn.  Just damn. 

This hurts me a little less than you master case guys, since I've only been doing a box anyway for the prequel stuff.  But I assume/hope they'll move on to other stuff and hopefully back to OT stuff after a bit.  CW wave first, then back maybe?  Yikes. 

Alright, I assume now that the Medicom/Indy idol thing is done with Robby period, so off to ebay I go (hah! back on topic).
