    shouldn't and shouldn't be odd...but we never know what gets instituted these days and we are left to just ponder infinitely on the legalities of it. USUALLY if you're buying an import of a good that is otherwise not provided to you buy your local retail market, then sales tax should never come into play. But like all things...can be susceptible to change. Greed in various forms sometimes (this case government) makes us enjoy life less.

    Europeans do.
    we always get charged normal tax on aliexpress(but with that comes a guarantee of no extra fees on delivery)
    i think showZ cheats the system by underdeclaring everything as something like $20 and charging €5 tax through shipping costs.

    So...Show.Z just hit me up for the remainder unpaid on IT-01. Should I be excited by this?

    Apparently not, we dont even know the final price for now. Most likely delayed to mid Nov.

    Yes, can you give me a link? I will see if we can got this listed this week

    Yes :( 

    Yes, we have been discussed about the program lately, we will have a new program this month most likely

    Sure, give me the order # and I will send the PDF file to your email

    Textbook procedure lol, and that is how we did it for the most of the time also

    @ShowZStore @AbbytheCat I'm still confused by the distinction between the ShowZ regular store and Gundamit store. What is the advantage to us as consumers if the bonus points from our premium account is divided between two different sites, as they don't cross over? I fail to see how this is consumer focused, as if I purchase something on Gundamit store, the bonus points I receive will not be useable on the standard ShowZ store. I'm considering purchasing a figure or two on Gundamit, but then I'd be unable to eventually use those points on ShowZ, which is where I normally buy things.

    Use this form to submit a request, we will handle the rest :) 
    ShowZStore After Sales Service

    Yes we are ;) 

    You can send an email to: [email protected], if you want to check if we got your request or not :) 

    Our original plan was to split up the TF action figure and other figures. There are multiple reasons but they basically come to these three:
    1. We want to lower the risk, some products we sell are in the grey area. Might cause some trouble especially when China is really hammering down on IP infringement. If Show.z store got busted, at least we have another website.
    2. There are too many products but we only got one store front page that could fit limited product at once. So we figure it will be better to just open another online store.
    Also, about the points, we will manage to let our buyer share the points between GD and SZ accounts eventually, but right now we are still testing if separating is really doable

    No sale taxes, hooray!

    That's it, you finally crack the code :) 

    Duh!

    Is that also a factor in the search for another warehouse? Built in redundancy as a backup? Just curious.

    @AbbytheCat Do you plan to carry Zero Gravity Judge again on either of your storefronts?

    Do you happen to know when the Cell Shaded IT-01 will be "Incoming"? Seems like people have been waiting quite a while for both versions and now that the main version is headed your way I'm hoping the cell shaded version will be close behind it.

    @ShowZStore apparently there will be a reissue of IronTrans Star Blade. Will you make this item available in your store?

    @ShowZStore it looks like XTB have sent out their Locke 2.0. Any ETA on when you will be looking to ship replacements to the 1.0 buyers from your shop? I registered via the link, but haven't had a follow up yet.

    We have been told that this product is about the release so we change the status to incoming but apparently we need to wait another week for the fresh batch to arrive at our warehouse

    What is your order #? I can look it up for you to see the progress :) 

    That is part of the consideration too, we also always try to seek more reliable shipping service just in case

    If Zero G decide to reissue it we will list it on Gundamit for sure

    Sorry but not, we asked the same question to the factory but even they can not give us a exact date or even a ballpark range

    Yes, we will definitely list that, ETA will be tomorrow

    We are try to verified this news, if confirmed we will open the pre-order ASAP

    We will send you a confirmation email this week, ETA for the fixed 2.0 version will be around 10th Nov.
