just noticed it was blue text lol
Post is really expensive now..I asked them and it weighs over 3.1 kg packed and only ems is available so postage costs 7300 yen. I guess it is still cheap compared to local us retail but there is the chance of import tax.
Thank you for the response.
I just answered this over at your AmiAmi post in the Toy section but will post it here as well.
EMS is on hold from Japan Post as of April 24th for the US. So I think right now the only way to get out of Japan is DHL (if the seller ships that way).
News - Japan Post
There talking 4 months before shipping picks back up. They were concerned with EMS shipping and the life of the virus on materials
I asked them on April 21. So with DHL.. I guess it will be more expensive?
Sadly yeah. Unless you find it on Amazon Japan for 1,600 shipping.
I think Amazon is still expensive too, shipping has gone up and they charge the import tax.. so depending on your currency, it may or may not be worth going with an amiami or Amazon that is shipped by them
Forgot to mention if the price is not much of a difference, maybe better to go with a local seller so they can keep on bringing in these import goods
They closed their ebay store so I dont know.
Are they still shipping orders to the U.S. with AmazonGlobal International Shipping (Priority)?
All Japan Post services to the US (EMS, SAL etc) have been suspended indefinitely. Orders that already have been sent may be delayed up to 4 months.
Well in light of that.
I'll take my chances on the previously mentioned ebay auction.
If that does not pan out then I'll order off the Chosen Prime.
Thank you so much everyone that responded to my questions.
Please take great care of yourselves.
I highly recommend The Chosen Prime
If it helps, if you find a seller shipping MP-44 on AJ at the 1600 Y shipping fee price, take it. Factoring in customs, it will likely still come in at the same, with DHL from another shipper. The last few times I used AJ, they shipped using DHL.
SAL orders of course not. I think EMS or DHL is a YES.
EMS is a no-go, because it's Japan Post.
Services like DHL and FedEx are still fine, because they have their own planes.
For Asia EMS is still avaliable... from what I gathered from buying stuff off Buyee and Mandarake.
Ah yes! I was talking about the US, as that's what @Pride21 was asking about.
Japan Post still ships to some Asian countries.
