Secondary benefit of using Amazon: their servers don't even blink at what we did to NY/AmiAmi.

No official polls or anything like that, but it seems that most of us who wanted one, did get at least one from somewhere.

It's because us Aussies no longer have the option of buying from foreign Amazon any more. We are only allowed to purchase internationally via Amazon AU's global portal. International Amazon sites can't be forked dealing with getting and ABN and doing quarterly BAS etc. They just block all AU addresses. Thanks Australian government...

Last time I tried to order at Amazon Japan, they would not ship to a US address. That was years ago.

I tried just now and they allowed it. 18000 + 1200 for shipping. HS with shipping will almost certainly cost more so I will cancel it.

Just be careful with the cancellations.... cos accounts can and have been suspended for this.... after all that's why CDJapan takes in full payment now

For Amazon Japan, you can't cancel after Nov 24th but anytime before it's ok

Yesterday I almost wanted to drop the idea of ordering... but Bandai really priced it right..

Bravo for such a good work and yet affordable, although still early to say about the quality.

We can blame the liberals and Gerry Harvey for that, is isn't making enough fleecing people know that he has a lot of competition.

I knew Amazon JP allowed buying video games in recent years but did not know they now allowed toys. A whole new world of hurt for the wallet.

I did just receive my NeoGeo mini from Amazon JP though.

Damn! You have the touch with NY!:D

My order is still spinning and I know it's pointless but I like watching it spin.

Our government somehow strong armed many international retailers to apply for tax collecting as part of GST that all Australians should be paying for purchases. Even a small retailer like Ami is collecting tax for Australian purchases. All my orders now have 10% added tax including shipping! The main purpose is to reduce importing purchasing that is hurting our local retail as our pricing is much more expensive than overseas. It will also be a big chunk of money in the government's pocket now too. :(

Maybe they're trying to screw over people now since they couldn't fleece people with the whole VF-31A debacle.  I've never seen them raise prices on a pre-order before.
