    I know many of you were excited for the nemesis prime repaint. for those who purchased it, what would be the shipping to florida? or the approximate shipping to the us? would it be cheaper then bbts 260 dollars one (shipping included)?

    I would like to know. I do plan on purchasing this item.

    Thanks for the reminder. I just placed my order and yeah, shipping is 2,000 yen. But, the cost for the DVD one seems to have been lowered 3,160 and 3,330 for the Blu-Ray from the original price!

    You can order this off of Amazon Japan? I didn't think they'd ship it overseas since it was an exclusive there. Details please?!

    Yup! Just go to the product page and add it to your cart. It's in Katakana to start, but the format is the same as Amazon.com. When you get to your cart, there's an option up in the top left corner to switch to English. Most of the stuff is now readable and you just follow the directions. Very easy!

    Better yet,
    DVD: Amazon.co.jp: トランスフォーマー/リベンジ オプティマスプライム ブラック&#x

    BD: Amazon.co.jp: トランスフォーマー/リベンジ オプティマスプライム ブラック&#x

    They normally don't ship toys outside Japan, but this item is under "DVD" category, which they do ship international. I have bought a DVD w/a toy from them before. (Though this figure is much bigger, so I am slightly uncertain...)
    You need to create an account, and pay with your credit card.
    Amazon.co.jp: ƒwƒ‹ƒv*>*Help in English*>*Getting Started*>*Assistance for New Customers

    They don't charge your card until they are ready to ship, so the total will be according to the exchange rate of that day :)

    Signed up, I can't get it to the right US zip code format, and I can't select a state, because they are all in Japan. :banghead: 

    Any help?

    Thanks, Syd, once again to the rescue. :) 

    So, he is 12,686 Japanese yen = 141.969026 U.S. dollars as of today, I think the yen changes very slightly daily.

    Shipping 2000 Japanese yen = 22.38200 U.S. dollars

    = About $163 US dollars shipped, give or take.

    So, yeah, almost $100 cheaper then BBTS

    Looks like I will be able to add him to the Black Convoy collection, after all. :)
