Shipping is going to be the expensive part, probably as much as the actual toy, unless you order it from Amazon Japan yourseslf but have it shipped to a friend in Japan and then have them bring it to the states with them to skip the overseas shipping fee. If you cant find anyone else to help ( and there is plenty of people ) and you really really want this , and want it the cheapest, then let me know. I am coming back to the states in March and would be happy to bring it back for you ( I live in florida so you will need to pay for shipping from Florida to your house in the states ) you would just have to wait awhile to get the toy as march is 9 months away still LOL. I go back to the states every so often and I go back with 6 empty suitcase to fill with food and ect so going there I have lots of room. Id leave the toy in the amazon box it came in and would place it in my check in bags though.
