I don't think anyone's actually going to be able to ship you one for much less than $50 at this point, shipping is still a pile of nonsense.  I had a $15 upcharge on my original EMS order, which I don't honestly think is that bad.

Maybe someone from their first batch canceled on them and I got that one. Maybe your order is allocated from an incoming batch?  

Dunno what to tell you, first time ordering from them.

I sent them a message just now, if their site is listing it in stock ready to ship, mine should have been shipped already, i’d figure they would ship out preorders first before online orders that were placed just today….

I'm still disappointed Bandai did not include 2 civilian Hikaru pilot figures. 1 with this helmet and 1 with the flight goggles he wore in episode 1 so we could display both the 1D and fan racer with pilots in the cockpit. 😭

Need custom pilot figures from shapeways now. 1 civilian goggles Hikaru, and 1 seated Minmay.

$88 to the proxy, to pack and ship my pair, but they should be on their way soon.

What was the shipping method/provider?

There are alternatives...

Arcadia's 1:60 figures are, as always, roughly equal in size to Bandai's 1:48th.

Did you get the 5.000Y shipping? What service was that? DHL?

Anybody order from AE? I’m having trouble with their website. The email I received from states to asks for me to check item I want shipped but I don’t see any option to do so on my orders page.

In my orders page, click on the tab that says in stock ready to ship.

I ordered from AE. There should be a checkbox there and, if not, there is usually a "select all items" button at the bottom.

Thanks guys. There are no check boxes in My Orders page or even a select all items button. I went ahead and contacted customer service to find out what’s wrong. I do remember having trouble before with just trying to update my address since I moved. Their website would not save my new info for some reason. 
 

EDIT: Nevermind. A-E has received my request to ship. I think I may have clicked to fast and didn’t realize that I already did it. 😝 Thanks again guys!

Luna Park has not sent me a shipped email yet, but this morning I got a text from DHL telling me it’s on the way. I was surprised because I paid for the figure and shipping back when the preorder first went up which I assume was EMS so I was expecting an additional charge for DHL. So I’m impressed that it shipped already, but unfortunately I am most likely going to get bent over with taxes and border fees from DHL. The last item I had shipped from Japan with DHL was a $36 mook that ended up costing $95 because of the DHL fees. So I’m fearful of what a $400 CAD item is going to cost me.

Surprisingly, OkiniLand shipped mine and honored the original DHL pre-payment of like 4400Y without upcharge. However, they originally sold it for 27,000Y so I paid a little more anyway. I'm tested a proxy for my second one and nothing yet. The same proxy failed on Super Parts. Held my money for 6 mos and then claimed their handler canceled on them. I gave them a second chance as on the 1D as they swore it was secured. We'll see...

Buddy in Japan got them. Just waiting for them to ship my way now. :yahoo:

My buddy in JP has mine too. I think my best bet is for him to ship them to Tenso and then Tenso to me. What are you doing?

One of my proxies had me pick the packaging type but nothing about shipping yet. I suspect that will take a few days.

Radio silence from my other proxy.

Got a shipping notice today from Okini Land.  Still waiting to hear from Luna Park on my December pre-order (status still shows as "confirmed"), but I'm not worried.

 

[Update: current DHL Express tracking status says Shipper has generated a shipment label, but the shipment has not yet been handed over to DHL This could have do with the Tamashii Web Shop exclusive nature of the item, or maybe the initial language in their email notification was misleading, but I've reached out to OL just to confirm. ]
