    Anyone else? 16 days is a bit to wait. I know it says up to 45 days though. Anyone else still waiting on SAL shipping via HLJ?

    Yep expect a long wait with SAL, the typical delivery is 2-4 weeks depending.

    16 days is nothing, can't take much longer than that.

    You will probably get yours before TF Source gets their unmodded ones in stock. >:-/

    Is SAL shipping safe for the packaging? I'm no MISB'er, but I've heard that the SAL stuff gets beat up pretty bad in transit.

    According to Japanese postal sites, 2kg (4.4 pounds) parcel would cost;
    4000yen EMS
    3850yen SAL
    SAL is expensive for a smaller pakage, actually it's not saving you much money unless the package is over 15kg :) 

    As for the time, once my SAL package took nearly a month (Japan -> Australia).
