    received an email update about my china shipping question from Baba

    Question: Have you heard anything about shipments stopped from China?

    Answer: Instead of stopping, there are only a few international flights left, resulting in 99% of packages waiting in line for flights.

    Sounds like there will be some serious waits...So much for those 2 new Valkyrie factory VF-1s getting here anytime soon..

    THANK YOU for the heads up, the link AND the coupon code!
    This is my first time ordering from them and since i missed out on the initial Pulse sale, I objected to the MSRP, I am very happy to get this at a Great price.
    Thanks again; this is Very much appreciated.

    HLJ is having a sale on Transformers this week: All Products - HobbyLink Japan
    There appears to be a lot of the same old stuff, for those who have been following their Transformers sales over the years, but there are 158 products in the sale, so maybe you'll find something.
    Also (and I think I said this a few pages back), they currently have no time limit on their "Private Warehouse", so you can order stuff and they'll hold on to it until you're ready (and/or whenever the Japan Post opens back up).

    Me too. I was hoping for a MP-39+ but the originals is almost perfect as is

    Yeah I don't see what they could possibly do for a MP-39+ version.

    The Cordon/Spin-Out head, shins, and weapons plus red paint apps on the shoulders and a normal-proportioned Autobot emblem.

    I didn't order it since I have it, but it seemed like it was going to let me order it.

    My two items that were sitting in Japan have shipped to me via DHL just fine. Shipped on Friday, due to arrive tomorrow.

    I'd assume Amazon Japan would ship fine, as well, but last time I looked a few weeks ago it wouldn't let me order anything based on my location.

    Are you in the states? What was your freight charge from HLJ? I need to know if it's worth it for me to buy something at $18 cheaper with them vs. another guy, if the freight's gonna cost me $40 then no.

    I'm in Washington State. My last order from HLJ (arrived just a few days ago) cost me $31 with FedEx.
    (But also, you can just have them hold it in your Private Warehouse until cheaper shipping options open up again).

    Transformers Masterpiece MP-48 Lio Convoy (Beast Wars) sold and shipped by Amazon Japan, in-stock Oct 6, 2020.

    9,981 Yen / $87.49 USD (plus ~$21.86 shipping YMMV) vs. $184.99 on Hasbro Pulse, et al.

    Edit: There's quite a few 3rd party sellers, be sure to select the "sold and shipped by Amazon Japan" for that sweet sweet deal:

    GD.... I bought that for $60 more from them when it first went up for pre-order last year. That's a heck of a price drop. I wonder if it's a mistake? Good luck to everyone getting it

    I'm in Washington State, but these were ebay purchases made over six weeks ago. Both packages were returned to the shippers and they shipped them via DHL.

    Thank you both! Does HLJ usually have cheaper options than DHL?
