  1. received my Black and Gold 1S from HK seller. haven't opened it yet though.
  2. can't find them. link please? thanks
  3. lol! i used to visit my PO so often that now they just send me an SMS whenever i have more than 4 boxes or at least one of them is a month old, whichever comes first. you're spot on with the tax calculations. NY price for SV-51 + 3k yen shipping works out to around 17k Php shipped. Add ~4k Php for taxes and the 112 Php fixed postal handling fee, for a total of 21k php. there's a local PO for the SV-51 at 22k Php, less 10% if a member, so net 20k Php. as of late 2016, any importation less than 10k Php item value only (ie. excluding shipping) is exempt from taxes. hence i have since split my shipments into smaller chunks. and high value items ship individually. when i have a big order at NY (eg. to maximize a discount coupon), i then select the ship separate parcels option which only costs a little more. BOC occasionally makes errors by computing based on landed cost even if the item value alone is under 10k. i just point out the error to the local PO and they release the package tax free. this is really odd. sorry man, but it really looks like you were over taxed. i paid 3k Php tax for the same item, and my shipments from Amiami, HLJ, HS always had the shipping cost spelled out. in Amiami's case, it's not on the invoice but on the declaration sheet under "postage charges". both pieces of paper are inside a plastic bag pasted on the box.
  4. full set for me too please.
  5. favor please, can you try the upgrade parts on the black getter and take a pic?

    may i take you up on that offer? missed out on the PO
  10. NY SAL Small Packet x 3. i actually got the postal notice a couple of weeks back, but was too busy to pick it up at the post office. as previously mentioned, now that i have 4 in hand, i will dispose of one. if anyone has the Arcadia Altira Island resin model or the VF-171 with Sheryl on the back, maybe we can work out a trade or something.
  11. in hand at last. merry christmas to me =)
  12. i hope Appleseed gets some love too. 2020 can't come soon enough
  13. i like the box. hope they also make a plastic foldable container/crate down the line. NY also asked me for extra shipping. total 7300 yen shipped to Manila. it's been shipped but i probably won't see it until 2019. postal services grind to a crawl during December.
