    starting 4:30 PM EST E-Hobby is selling the limited Black Convoy!

    http://www.e-hobby.co.jp/cgi-bin/omc?port=33301&req=PRODUCT&code=event_black_convoy

    The second shift would be 10:00 PM EST

    The third shift would be tomorrow 7:00 AM EST

    Got one for 7,015 Yen which is roughly about $60.20

    Update: I'm not sure if it's because I already got one or when I checked it again I didn't log in, both instance it shows up as not available for sale and it's only 16 minutes after the sale begins! There must be a lot of people trying to order it before heading into work, there should be about 130+ pieces per time slot

    Update 2: It is confirmed, morning portion is sold out! Also updated with a direct link, remember to use this down time to register if you haven't already...

    How about the link from the initial post of this thread?

    Or the link from e-Hobby's main page?

    As much as I hated overpaying for mine, I'm glad I don't have to deal with the hassle of actually getting one.

    Try Babelsfish
    http://babel.altavista.com/
    and then input this address

    Then choose from Japanese to English, and press translate.

    Is there a way to register from outside Japan? Can I simply bypass the province/location drop down box?

    Hmmm, so E-hobby is selling him huh? I guess I will wait as it is possible for some import stores in my country to bring him in.

    They are in stock, they split up the stock to 3 windows, 6:30 am, 12:00 pm. and 9:00 pm (Japanese time, refer to the first post to get EST), so everyone can get a shot to order it. they are listed it as sold out before the time slot, but you can order as soon as the time slot arrives, and they will continue to sell until that window's allotment is depleted, each window should have about 133 units if the report of 400 pieces is accurate. I think the morning shift sold out in about 15 minutes, so as long as you are there ready and early, you should be able to get one no problem.

    Do you have an address in Japan? a friend maybe? if so, I can walk you through registration, just PM me your number. Also remember you need to have the english version of the address, (unless you can type Japanese)

    Yup, 1 hour to go, you better get started on registering if you want one! :D 

    Personally, I think they are handling this with more grace than Hasbro Toy Shop, except the no selling out of Japan part...

    Yeah, this is unfortunately a huge mountain to climb just to try and get one. If I didn't have mine I don't think I would've tried anyways.

    I mean first you have to translate everything. Then you have to wait for the times to begin. Plus you have to compete with who knows how many people. Then you have to process your order on a page that you most likely can't read. Then you have to know someone who lives in Japan. Then you have to deal with shipping.

    It just seems like such a pain.
