    We'll see. I did the same for my AA set and didn't get it till two weeks ago... But I also didn't order them till a month after preorders started. But these next two are the same method, day one, so we'll see.

    my MP51 shipped from AJP...Strangely the total is more than what I ordered. Talked to their CS and he said some new fees have been added for imported goods...what a crock!

    Price at order: ¥ 11,641
    Price at shipping: ¥ 12,520

    Unfortunately more US states are now charging state "sales tax" on top of the other taxes.

    FYI, some orders you can't add gift cards to until they try to charge you, then you have to fool around a few minutes trying to add the gift card before it goes through. Amazon CS claims that this has been the policy all along but no.

    Looks like this is what happened with my order too, its a few yen off of a 6% markup from my order price which is the New Jersey tax rate. She'll still come in for around $30 less than buying her from pulse. DHL's delivery estimate is Thursday. Nice to have something to look forward to.

    It's hysterical, either pre-orders come late or canceled, or they come earlier than expected.

    I do it all the time. All my Kingdom, Marvel Legends, and S.H. Figuarts pre-orders are all paid with gift cards. You can use Amazon entirely without credit. You won't have the added perks of a Prime membership, but you can buy and pre-order anything with just gift cards.

    Anyone having problems paying on Amazon JP? Bank declined the charge. Bank is claiming they have no way to authorized. I usually buy the Amazon JP E Gift cards but they decline that as well today. Has anyone use a VISA Giftcard before?

    An hour or so ago I received a ship notification for the Ironhide/Prowl order I placed back on Aug 17. I am legitimately shocked.

    Funny thing, a few days before Christmas I was double-charged by Amazon for Paleotrex, then refunded the second charge. I woke up today to see I was refunded $14.14, the cost of SW Vintage Collection Moff Gideon, but my order wasn't canceled, and I was eventually recharged later in the day. I hope Amazon isn't having issues now with their payment service.

    im currently experiencing a similar situation. i ordered the full set funko pop! transformers.
    i had a pending charge on my account while the order was preparing for shipment. the preparation for shipment took several days. once the order shipped, the charge disappeared from my account. while it was shipping, i received an email stating that i was going to receive a small refund per the preorder price guarantee. i received the order on christmas eve, and the charge has not reappeared on my account. very strange. ive never had something like this happen.

    I had this happen to me with Fastrack. I got charged almost a week after I got my order.

    Glad those two will see the light of day. Mirage’s atrocious clear plastic really turned me off to an otherwise good figure. Do you know if Sideswipe will be a retool of ER Sunstreaker or a retool of the Siege mold?

    Bw2 skywarp?! Does this mean we’ll get the rest of Magnaboss. Assuming he’ll be a slight retool of Airazor. Will he be able to combine though?
