    ...is not possible anymore, at least until they hire somebody new to handle overseas inquries :( 

    I have ordered from them before, and buying directly from eHobby saved me lots of money.
    godsenddeath and I were hoping to get BT-18, and we sent them emails about ordering info, but hadn't heard back from them at all.
    After waiting for a couple of weeks I actually rang them and asked why we haven't got any replies to our mails. The man on the phone told me that they don't have the person who handles English inquries anymore, thus they do not accept orders outside Japan at this moment.

    Lame excuse as to why they didn't reply at all (one of my mails was in Japanese), but this is the story.

    Just the heads up in case anybody is waiting for a reply from them as well.

    you don't have to, but it is up for order from e-hobby, so if you were to want to pre-order you could (or not since they don't take out of japan orders)

    Yeah I guess it doesn't matter to you guys in the US because you have few shops that sell Japanese TFs including eHobby stuff with a very small markup.

    I think I bought my Laser Ultra Magnus from eHobby for the price which was about the same as BBTS, but it included shipping from Japan.
    Plus if anybody was hoping to purchase those eHobby exclusive 2 packs, it can't be done anymore.

    I am still lucky that I have an address in Japan (so I can order from them), though :)

    Well, I hope this does not affect my MP05 from getting here safely. I'm still waiting patiently since it was shipped on March 30 via SAL. SAL's estimated delivery time is 7-45 days to the states, but most people that ordered him from E-Hobby seem to have received theres already.

    I hope you'll get your MP-5 soon. Taking 20 days is longet than average even for SAL as far as I know. Any time now, I reckon :)  I also didn't know that they sent via SAL.

    I first contacted them on the 30th regarding BT-18...I wonder when they decided to stop responding to international inquries altogether.
