    Mine, too. This is my first time using amazon.co.jp. Pretty amazingly fast shipping. Cheap, too. I'll be using them for anything I order straight from Japan.

    Still prefer The dojo for everything else, though.

    :lol  And Grapple was just delivered after only being on the delivery truck for a hour! Gotta love a delivery before noon! Amazon JP box had dents, but they did the plastic on cardboard technique to create space on the sides. Amazon JP did a better packaging job than Amazon did with my SOC Voltron. :thumb

    It's almost as if there's no difference between Amazon US and Japan in terms of shipping time. I have Megatron on preorder with them so I hope to continue the great track record with them. The only disappointment with them is certain items cannot be shipped to the America.

    AJ would be great if they were all coded to ship to the US. I was emailing back and forth with a rep from AJ and he was looking into it, but no one would ever respond to him. It sounds like it just needs a flag added to the item to say it's ok.

    Mine is still out with the delivery courier. If only Ebay sellers in China could ship this fast.

    **UPDATE**
    Just got delivered!

    Yeah, NY is going on prep since the 22nd. Kinda ticked about it. Amazon is getting these things to people within 3 days.

    It's funny how Inferno seemed to be all the rage when he came out, but now that Grapple is here, Inferno has been relegated to the back page.
    You guys really seem to be loving MP-35.

    They do. I ordered both Grapple and Megatron from them. You just need to get in on the pre-order from Amazon Japan when it is first announced or close to it.

    As for Grapple, he was out for delivery today and I missed the DHL guy. Ugh... gotta wait until tomorrow.

    How do Amazon.co.jp compare price wise with the other Japanese retailers? (ie: HLJ, AmiAmi, AnimeExport etc) each of those offer approx 30% pre-order discount on official Takara products.
    I ordered Grapple and Cheetor from Premium Collectables who's prices are equivalent to the 30% discount price, but they're shipping and disptach seems to be getting slower with every release.
    Always good to have option.

    When ordering from Amazon JP, do you use your regular Amazon account and login using that information or do you have to create a new account?
