    Stupidly simple.

    Use a translator (or if they offer English, now) use it to sign up for an AJP account. (Same process as the US and UK branches.)
    Once logged in, switch it permanently to English.
    Find the item you're looking for, it'll say whether or not it's fulfilled by Amazon. If it is, you're more than likely able to buy it.
    In the cart, when it asks for the shipping address, it'll say whether or not you're able to purchase the item. If no warnings come up, you're good to go.

    You can use either their conversion or pay in JPY and they'll take care of the rest. It'll charge when they ship, so if it's in stock, you'll see a charge almost immediately.

    Takes about 3-5 days and it's sent by DHL. They, or the USPS, will handle final delivery.

    Yes it's super easy. If you have a US account, just log in. Don't even need translator. Just look for the globe icon and choose English near the top of the page.

    This fella already landed here in Philippines.
    Just visited some hobby shops this past weekend and most of them have stocks in fair price.
    Upon seeing it up close, he's a notable addition to anyone's OP collection.

    Call it Has-Tak's 180 degree Turn on Wei Jang's M01 Commander, it doesn't matter.

    For me it's more of Has-Tak's "I'm Sorry We Didn't give you Leader Class Evasion Prime 4 Years Ago" figure. :lol 
    Instead they gave us a not so ingenious Leader Class Back Pack Optimus Prime. Thanks to Michael Bay's "humanoid transformer aesthetics".

    Yep, I was going to say that I never created a Amazon.co.jp account, just logged in with my US one and it works. Switch language to English as suggested and most of the UI will be in English. After that, very easy to order! The nice thing is that I think they have a VAT and so when you order it takes that off, which helps offset the shipping a bit.

    Okay, so mine finally arrived. While not up to par with the old Leader class or the MPM, being an up-scaled voyager, he's still a good figure. The extra size allows for details that were missing in the original voyager and he does some things better than the old toys- the rifle being one piece instead of two and having movable calf armor instead of missing or molded into the leg. There are only two major critiques. He only has the one smokestack- having both would fill out the robot mode better. Second, and this is more nitpick, is that he can't securely hold the melee weapons from past leaders like APSU1 or Caliber Prime. I mention that last one since Caliber was designed to have backwards compatible weapons.

    Not even close, but it is not a fair comparison.

    Weijian interpretation of the character is something more like a Premium Masterpiece, unfortunately the Masterpiece line doesnt have this quality since a long time ago. The issue is that you could find a Weijiang version at this price plus shiping, I actually got mine for less.

    It is good to see an official version but having the Weijiang superior interpretation, don't see the need for this. Maybe if Hasbro release a cheaper version in US.

    I wish people would stop comparing this to WJ M01 and just enjoy it for its own merits. I have M01 and I just ordered this figure too. M01 is a beautiful figure for sure but its also massive. Its more a display piece while this new Legendary Prime is something I would feel more comfortable transforming and using with other figures.

    Don't have WJ. Not a moral thing but just prefer official figures. With that said, I like this Legendary OP. Definitely not MP level but feels more premium than standard generations figures. I'm not a fan of movie line figures and generally regret buying the few I have, but this isn't one one them despite the higher price.
