That's what some of us are doing, but there's a risk of complications with the shipment because according to the policy, they can't ship toys to international locations. They can ship DVDs though, and this falls into the "DVD" category because the primary product is the DVD, with Optimus as a bonus item. So that could be one worry. Also, you have to make an Amazon Japan account, and they don't take PayPal, so that could be another. Personally I think it's worth the risk if it means being able to get this toy for retail price, when I can imagine it going for $300+ on eBay.
