    I've noticed a lot of mention and ebay auctions on exclusive E-Hobby transformers and I was wondering how do you go about ordering from them? I tried accessing their site and it was all Japanese(or Chinese). I was curious because they've released some cool looking product and I was wondering if there was a way of ordering it through them and not have to pay double or triple on an ebay auction or some other online store.:poke

    Email them with what you want and they work with you via email. I ordered their G1 Insecitcons kit a few years ago.

    Yeah, dealing with places such as BBTS or TFSource is best when ordering Transformers from eHobby outside of Japan. If you don't speak Japanese, just don't bother with them and leave it to people who do. To me, that's worth a couple extra dollars.

    I never had any trouble communicating with E-Hobby via email, despite my American-ness.

    You can deal with them directly if you put forth some effort, but most people just get ehobby stuff through third party US based stores like BBTS or TFSource.

    I'm curious about the Masterpiece Optimus, how big do you think he is? Is he as big as the 20th Anniv. Prime?

    They're the same toy, just with minor differences in paint and shorter smokestacks to comply with US safety standards.
