    I generally preorder from AE or HLJ and even though prices are different, after shipping the totals come to about the same. However with MP22 I am considering a third option because of the extra weight. Since amazon has free shipping locally and Tenso charges actual EMS shipping plus service charge, I am wondering if it might come cheaper than the above 2.

    I guess I will answer my own question. Just placed a test order through Amazon.co.jp for AD11 and AD13, total was 7200Yen or 72 dollars. According to Amazon total shipping weight was 530g, but Tenso charged me for 860g plus their service charge came to 2700yen or 27 dollars. So my total for the 2 figures was 100 bucks. The fact that they added 300g on a 500g package tells me shipping mp22 through them would be expensive.

    MP10 was close to 6lbs and this would be about 7lbs or so. Shipping plus service charge would come to 7700yen or 77 dollars. It looks like ordering from tfsource or bbts may end up being cheaper for this figure.
