    My Dinobot order finally moved up to this Friday. No movement on Huffer though.

    Much obliged - I just went for Reboost since he's gonna be about $90 shipped to me, which is WAY cheaper than MPs have been lately. Gonna see if I can get Skids from Amazon too eventually!

    I wonder why Skids hasn't been made available yet. I've been sitting on a shopping card with AJ for about a week and was hoping to add both of these in; the incremental shipping cost is only about 300 yen so the savings is significant.

    Looks like those early listings are now in the "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

    honestly, given how I just reupped my Premium subscription for free shipping, I'll probably just go through them for both - I'm REALLY surprised at how cheap they are, I honestly expected them to be another three-figure MP like we'd gotten lately.

    Apparently, Takara's focus is on Reboost since it's the 40th anniversary of the Honda City and red is the iconic color of the car. I'm waiting for Skids too.

    I haven't bought an MP in ages, and actually stopped collecting them, but dang it, getting Reboost!

    Don’t forget, Amazon Japan will likely get it to you a couple months faster than Hasbro Pulse since almost all TT releases get delayed two months on HP..

    I was going to mention this. And it's not even for a good reason. It's so they can put their repackaging over the outside, while maintaining the original Japanese packaging. It makes me wonder if there's a regulatory reason they do this, or if they don't expect American customers to know what to make of the Japanese box. I tend toward the former, since there may be legality issues for child safety warnings or whathaveyou.

    I usually go with AZ.jp but if there's any issues kind of a pain to do a return with them, since the dollar amount is not a big difference. But then again it's fwiw. I know I've seen people who've ordered from ajp and had to return it for whatever reason and stating the return part is kind of a hassle.

    Aww, dangit. I was suspicious this morning when Dinobot hadn't gotten on the truck out for delivery, now they're saying it could be a day or two.

    I thought I read somewhere on the boards that while you can return stuff to Amazon Japan no hassle, they still ask you to pay the return shipping cost out upfront, but they will reimburse you.

    I believe return shipping was insane from U.S. to Japan. Like you paid $12 to ship over MP Hound to the U.S. and it was full of QC issues, the return shipping was like ~$100+.

    Yes, but if I can add them to my existing AJ order-in-waiting, they would come out to about 8300 JPY ~ $76 USD, after tax. Compare to Pulse which would be around $98 after tax. So it's definitely worth the $20+ savings, per figure, to me.
