Thanks @SuperDimensionalDave! I wanted to go the eBay route because I have some eBay bucks/codes and it looks like the shipped price is going to lower than what I’ll be paying going directly through their website. For example, I recently bought the ET Mechander Robo through their website and paid $370 shipped EMS while on their eBay store the same toy is $341 shipped and you mentioned DHL which in my case is faster than EMS! I think I’ll checking their eBay site more frequently from now on.
you may want to forget about HLJ. This is what I got from them after I inquired about my order and why I haven’t been charged yet. Had to find another source for it.

Thanks for writing.
I'm very sorry, but we received far fewer of the item than we ordered and stock unfortunately ran out before your order and the orders of other customers could be filled.
We have stopped accepting new orders for it, but are keeping your order on file as we try to get more stock to fill it. In addition, more may become available if any of the orders currently in payment processing become cancelled for non-payment.
If we are not able to get any more, our order department will e-mail you to let you know.
We hope to have the answer for you soon. In the meantime, though, if you have another source for this item, you might want to pursue it.
We appreciate your business with us!
