Amazon.com is not Amazon.co.jp. Region exclusives.
Except, if I remember rightly, Amazon Japan have carried some previous Amazon (US) exclusives. Also, although there might be some differences between the two, Amazon Japan carries products, such as books, that are sourced from Amazon US and UK, so there's some relationship, however tentative, between them.
Possibly, but it doesn't explain why Takara didn't do a deal with Amazon Japan, as I'm sure (but can't recall exactly) that Amazon Japan has sold previous Amazon (US) exclusives before.
I think BBTS has some sort of direct account with Hasbro that the other e-tailers don't have, that's part of why they couldn't really carry the seacons.
Just a heads-up to mods, the news article title incorrectly says "Ratchet and Ironide 2-pack" instead of "Prowl and Ironhide".
You are referring to Transformers, yes? So, why are you talking about books? LOL
Takara has their own store, yes? Why would they compete with their own by allowing exclusives on another store? You'd see regular ER stuff on Amazon JP, but not the ER EX ones.
If you see Amazon.com exclusives on AmazonJP, then they are more than likely 3rd party sellers.
I gotta say after having them in hand
wave 2 is better than wave 1
Even with Arcee?
allicon looks a little too happy XD what shelves are those btw?
some bookshelves from big lots
Got the same shelves for the dvds... 3 of em' filled.
I didn't think titans would fit?!?
Arcee is a great action figure.
Her transformation is awkward. Her backpack is a silly shortcut.
But as an action figure, in hand, she's tremendously poseable. Moreso than almost any other modern Transformer I can think of aside from the Siege seeker. Moreso than the videos I've seen of R.E.D. series. You can get a lot of poses there.
I feel she was worth the $20 even owning the Legends Arcee.
Arcee is really great. Very expressive and looks perfect alongside Springer.
I had the same mindset too but TFSource burned me 2 months straight with Grapple.
Hasbro out here posing Prime's dead body like Weekend At Bernie's.
The front page Says IRONHIDE + RATCHET, not IRONHIDE + PROWL like it should.
A few things you could do IF you are ever in a situation like that. #1 - Use Google Translate. #2 Use AmazonJP or other Japanese website outlets. #3. Buy in the USA since 9 times outa 10 it's on this side too now a days. But before the epedemic it was always WAY cheaper getting it through Japan through their 30% discount pre-order option for TFs. Add in the exchange rate and you always make out.
#4 learn Japanese.
A more difficult one than the other three solutions but the one with more long time application
I mentioned the books to show that Amazon sites are not "siloed-off" from each other, and it's not just books that they share, either.
As for the exclusives that I mentioned, they weren't sold by 3P sellers, but by Amazon GK BUT I can't remember, for the life of me, what the exclusive(s) was/were, so my case isn't really strong at this stage.
I have one question, how can I shop from takara mall, living outside japan and not speaking even a tiny bit of japanese??
I am really asking this, no sarcasm here
