    What was your shipping on Bruticus?
    $80ish is pretty hard to pass up...

    And does anyone know if shipping is cheaper on the west coast -vs- east coast?

    Received MP-32 Optimus Primal from Amazon Japan today. Was shipped through DHL and came so fast! The packaging is similar to HLJ where they have the figure on a piece of cardboard under which is then plastic wrapped to hold it in place. The outer box though is not as sturdy as HLJ's. I'm pretty satisfied with it and will probably use them again!

    My sister was the one that received it when they rang the door bell and she said they didn't ask for a signature.

    If you go on DHL's website and put in your tracking code, you should be able to set it so a signature isn't required.

    Ok so, my US Prime account wont carry over to Amazon JP, but if I were to make a Prime account with Amazon JP, Prime items on Amazon JP would ship free...? Do I have that right? If so, it kinda seems like a no brainer to use this as an alternative to HLJ as I do. If I can get items A, B, and C on HLJ for, say, 100 bucks, and pay 25 bucks for shipping, but then get items A, B, and C on Amazon JP with Amazon Prime for roughly the same prices and free shipping, I'd do that and just pay the Prime fee every year, which is what, $60? I forget. Most of the items I have on pre order on HLJ are on Amazon JP for equal to or slightly less yen AND with Prime option. Do they do Paypal to avoid price conversion fees?

    So that's around what I paid on A-E way back when. I think it was closer to $130, maybe just under.

    Was going to order Cheetor from Amazon Japan but it looks like they don't ship him globally anymore. Also his price increased a bit. Wonder if it was just temporary or Amazon Japan is just changing it around every so often.

    From my experience so far, only Amazon Japan will ship to the U.S, not the secondhand sellers on there. Amazon Japan no longer has preorders up, which is why he's pricier now and won't ship to the U.S. There's only second hand sellers that have preorders open right now.

    Oh I understand the third party sellers but when I click on Cheetor, it still says ships from and sold by Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.jp/トランスフォーマー-...=1479089434&sr=8-3&keywords=トランスフォーマー+マスターピース

    You are right. None of the transformers are allowing shipping to the US. Maybe the other sellers complained...lol
