  1. I believe the de minimis for US is $800. Greater than that and there's a chance you'll be taxed
  2. 9000 yen (plus the initial shipping estimate) for just Kakizaki? I ordered mine from MyKombini, and they sent it thru Fedex to Canada and just ask for an additional 1395 yen (SAL small packet was originally selected), for a total of 3 990 yen for shipping.
  3. Tamiya panel line is known to be harsh on plastics. Even has a note that it can make plastics brittle in its product page. It's recommended that you put a coat first as protection if you're using it on bare plastic.
  4. Seems like the translogistic issue earlier this year caught up with NY and possibly mess up their financials as probably a lot of customer affected at that time did PP disputes/chargebacks. Thus it's possible they don't have enough funds to fulfill all orders. Even on other forums, there are still people still waiting/hoping for their items to ship after several months. As for NY's practice of fulfilling those with multiple items last, it's possible they do so, so less customer will complain/chargeback if they can't fulfill all orders. Let's say they have 4 customers, 3 of those have 1 it
  5. Ya FJ changed it to just one plan (300 yen) which includes the same protection from 700 plan. However, there are also some changes on how this fee applies. Before it was on a per order basis, but now, it's on a per item basis. YAJ auction buyers won't be affected that much since the fee usually applies on a per auction basis. However, this greatly affects users who buy multiple items per order from local JP shops, especially those who buy small/cheap articles.
  6. I won't think too much about it. Who knows, maybe FJ or the big proxies/companies have some sort of special agreement with PayPal or maybe they get some sort of tax credits, deductions or something for those fees so they don't bother charging those PP fees from their customers. We'll only know if we ask them
  7. Intel's strength is still in the enterprise space and with the enterprise being slow in adopting new (and better) technologies/infra, Intel still has time to have its house in order. They should do it quickly though, as the more time they lose, the more time enterprise have to contemplate and resolve issues that prevent them from moving to AMD. Major Cloud providers are already offering instances based on EPYC for example, and if others see the benefit of using AMD from those Cloud providers, then it would allow AMD to eat Intel's enterprise pie.
  8. Seems to be available at play-asia though at 9327 yen: https://www.play-asia.com/the-super-dimension-fortress-macross-shoji-kawamori-designers-no/13/70dlrl
  9. Same here, received an email about creating a new ticket with that subject. Though they also replied to my existing ticket with the same information and closed it.
  10. I don't think the locals would have supply issues as they would obviously have the biggest allocation of units. In Japan you have a lot of 'local' shop options (online or brick/mortar stores) so I would say there's sufficient supply. It's us outsiders who have a supply issue since we only have a handful of online shops that directly caters to us. Even for regular releases, I would assume that each shop would have a limited allocation from Bandai and since there are less shops catering to those outside Japan, this means a limited supply. Local shops in Japan on the other hand are plenty so Japa
  11. Ordered MB Eva02 from them and they delivered, though there's a chance they might cancel your order if they don't secure enough stock.
  12. Voltes V available on Amazon JP (64,900 yen - 10% as of this post): https://www.amazon.co.jp/BANDAI-SPIRITS-バンダイ-スピリッツ-フィギュア新商品1/dp/B08C3B35VF/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ボルテスv&qid=1593799467&sr=8-2
  13. Almost forgot about the PO as I was a bit tired due to meetings/some remote work last night that I was eager to go to bed. Good thing I usually read reddit, forums or some quick netflix browse to make myself sleepy (lol) and remembered about this PO. Was late by about 10 minutes or so and HLJ was the only shop remaining that I'm willing to PO from (otherwise will just try my luck at release). So just like the others waited for HLJ to 'fix' their site, and fortunately was able to get one though I thought it would fail as I got two "HLJ support" errors during the final step to place the order (j
  14. just got my SSP from NY this week (also paid for it upon PO last year). So I've asked about it around 1st week of May and also to ask to change the shipping method (RSAL -> EMS), and they just replied that they don't have it yet and also sent an invoice for the additional fee to change the shipping to EMS. I've replied that Iwon't be paying that additional EMS at that time (since it's not available), and also told them to keep me updated when they have the SSP. Haven't heard anything from them about the SSP, but first week of June, I just decided to pay up the additional EMS fee. And then,
