if the seller is not using Ebay's global shipping program (GSP) then there could be duties/tax upon delivery.  If it's shipped under GSP, then the duties / tax are paid upfront during checkout.  Also, was your order already shipped? There's an announcement by Japan Post that they're suspending EMS and Airmail to Canada starting Nov. 27 (Japan time) so if it's shipped through Japan Post and your order has not shipped yet or was shipped at that date, then there could be problem shipping it.

The recent numbers of the count are climbing so that's why Japan Post is suspending both EMS and air to Canada, which leaves us with DHL.

Now's getting close to 10k yen for shipping to Canada via DHL?? :vava:

So it sounds like $300 was the initial cutoff to hear about an order from NNG. Any bets on the next cutoff? $275?

Definitely not us from the 1st batch, guess we are screwed. 

Here's the email of the co-founder, we can spam him if they never ship by next week:

Shipping is the least concern when you are able to get Roy at retail price without any mark up. At least that's the case for me. :)

I will be grateful to get Roy from Ami and/or HLJ at their price even if they charge me double than usual for shipping.

I’m in the first batch with NNG’s Roy preorder as well, but would probably wait a bit more than a week before escalating things with them. 

They have delivered my prior orders and I am cautiously optimistic that they will come through. 

Here’s a suggestion: how about all of us NNG buyers keep track of when/how much our preorders were, and let others know once we have shipment updates so at least we all know if they had systematically fulfilled the pricier orders before the cheaper ones. That “evidence” would probably help our case more than spam emails asking “where’s my stuff”?

Ami Ami requested payment.

Yeah when I went to pay I saw their payment options.  When I visited their shipping info page said DHL is the only working option for the United States.   Thought about picking a different one but for all I know it would cause a delay of several weeks.   Grand total is like $250 USD and Ami Ami was offering it at the MSRP.   DHL is at least crazy fast.  My last DHL order from Japan got to me with in 24 hours.   If Ami Ami passes it to them on Monday in theory I'd get it by Tuesday.

and Fedex. Used that for my HLJ Roy order at just 3420 yen. Also just an FYI, if you create an account with Fedex and use that to pay for duties/taxes, they'll waive their advancement/disbursement fee so you'll only pay for the duties/taxes. You can call Fedex support when you receive your Fedex invoice and tell them that you want to use your Fedex account for the duties/taxes.

Cool, maybe we can consolidate in a list. Here's mine:

The EBay seller is using FedEx and I’ve already paid so I’m hoping it’s able to ship ok.

its TWE P-Bandai. so it will be similar to the dx Kakazaki

See, I would hope so, but I don't think there's any way you can compare the popularity of the VF-1D to Kakizaki, and I'm mentally preparing myself for another strike pack fiasco.

If Bandai allows ordering of 6 pieces per account like Kanazaki, you can be sure the 1D will sell out sooner than you can expect. But if that happens Bandai may just open round 2 of pre-orders to be released 3-6 months later.

Also I foresee online shops marking up the 1D more and even at those prices, it will be quickly sold out once the POs go live.

The one I ordered through AJ arrived at Tenso around 9:30 AM JT, so that's one of two down. I should have ordered both through AJ. Here's my NNG info:

Anasazi37 1 x Roy @ $179.76 (includes "PayPal Exchange Fees")

Just got my shipping/tracking info from Nin-Nin. I was part of the first pre-order batch so there is hope for those that ordered from them.

Not long after I posted my last comment with my purchase info, my shipping notification from NNG showed up, too! :shok:

I am pleasantly surprised. Now that two of us from the first round of POs have shipping info, here's hoping they come through on everyone else's orders.

Nothing for me. I locked in at 260, I did private warehouse tho because at the time I was like who knows what the shipping situation will be with covid. That feels like a bit of a mistake but it's supposed to ship out at the end of the month anyway with that so probably fine? Worse comes to worse I get refunded and have to pay a bit more to get one from like YJA

Poked nin-nin through a support ticket about the private warehouse thing just so I can try and make sure I dont get tossed to the back of the pack and everything goes smoothly. This is like my number one valk I want to get and the whole process is a mess/anxiety inducing even tho I know at the end of the day I'll find one somehow. Hahha

You can only change payment and shipping info yourself when the item is still available to ship to your country.   If you need to change anything after it’s sold out , you will need to contact Amazon chat .   
 

Also Sales tax will be added ....so for those that have just enough on the creditcard ,debit card or amazon card will not be be enough.  
 

if you run into issue it’s best to contact amazon chat first .

Is English available for Amazon JP chat?  I didn't try contacting Amazon Japan to change my shipping address 'cause I assumed I'd have to chat in Japanese.

Yes, English is available. Just engage in chat as you would normally and it should route you to someone who speaks english.
