    So I jumped at the chance to order the reissue MP-11SW through TT Mall via Tenso when it first went live and was wondering if anyone who had done the same in the past (preferably with one of the MP seekers) can give me an indication of what the total cost might be after Tenso's fees and shipping costs. I'm wondering if it just would have made more sense to get it locally from the likes of BBTS, seeing as the cost is only $40 more than the base cost of $150 for it from TTM. Then I don't have to worry about the added costs of using Tenso. Any insight is appreciated.

    No matter where I go, there I am.
    With the strong yen, it will probably come out equal to what you would pay ordering from BBTS or another domestic shop. I ordered two Ramjets, and only saved about $20 total. This was mainly due to the fact that TTMall packed them in a very large box (which was too large for SAL shipping) and Tenso simply relabeled it and shipped it to me. EMS shipping was over $60. That was back when the yen was weaker. Even if TTMall packs one Skywarp reasonably and you can go with SAL, the forwarding fees and strong yen will probably make it equal in total price. MP-14+ will be my last order from TTMall until the yen calms down.
