MP-45 is up for preorder.
Total newbie question but will amazon charge shipping to the states if the website says free shipping?
Also do you have to do anything with the credit card for an international charge like that?
No they won't charge, for shipping atleast devastator wasnt
If the charge doesn't go through you card company might have put a temporary block on it for security and you'll have to call
I'm cross posting a post I made in the MP-43 Megatron thread.
I purchased a defective Beast Megatron (one of the few with hips/codpiece cracked out of the box), and returned the toy via DHL as Amazon.co.jp requires. I've been documenting the process in detail. Click the link below if you'd like the full story.

Amazon Japan refunded my original purchase via credit (this is likely because I'd paid in advance using an Amazon gift card I'd purchased).
They also refunded my return shippings costs (a whopping $228!!), however these too have been refunded in the form of Amazon credit.
While Amazon's customer service has been exemplary (full refund for damaged goods), the returns process has been convoluted and has had a high cost upfront.
Just curious, did you buy an Amazon Japan gift card or did you have a US one?
I purchased the gift card via Amazon Japan. I did it in order to pre-pay--as others have been doing. This locks you in at whatever the current exchange rate is (for better or for worse) and allows you to fit payments into your own budget. I don't believe a US one would be transferable as you need to create a seperate account to utilize the Amazon Japan site.
It's not, I tried.
Got my first shipment from Amazon JP today. $192 shipped for Unite Warriors Devastator. 6 day delivery from Japan to the USA. I'm impressed!
I just got notification that MP Blackarachnia shipped!
:O *spams gmail refresh button*
Ok, in fairness, I didn't get an email saying it shipped, but they charged me for it finally, which means it's coming soon.
For some reason, I have to confirm my credit card every time it's ready to ship. Does this happen to anyone else?
I got two emails this morning. One for arachnea and one for beee
Has anyone had issues recently with Amazon Japan? I was going to pick up an amiibo that is hard to find in the US, but keep getting the message "we can't ship to your location" in every listed option when I go to check out. I just want to make sure there isn't anything that is going to prevent me from grabbing Tigatron from Amazon japan.
While it's gotten better Amazon Japan still has issues from time to time with what they'll let you buy. Just make sure it's shipped and sold by AJ first. I've been told that warranties play a part in what they'll ship but I don't know exactly how that affects things.
Waiting for MP arcee.
Hey guys, is it possible to purchase Amazon Japan gift cards and apply them to a preorder that is ready but waiting for payment? I'm having trouble with Amazon Japan charging my card this time and I'm thinking it might work if I use smaller amounts. My bank also said to ask Amazon Japan to run my card manually, but I still need to figure out how to do that.
