    Good prices. If only I knew of the English site a week ago, I'd have saved myself ~ $10!

    Oh wow, this is amazing news. EMS shipping may not be that great pricewise, but their amazing prices on figures make up for it. Also, thank you so much Amiami, for taking Paypal. :D

    But the best part is... we now have better access to some exclusives!

    Yea stumbled across this myself today aswell earlier...The whole no-canceling pre-orders thing I'll probably stop me from ordering anything as I change my mind constantly on pre-orders, but will see...

    Shiddo, what do you mean by offer and offer updates? They run specials or you can offer them prices ? The second one sounds too good to be true. but would be so awesome. xDDD

    Shame they will only do EMS. Their prices are fantastic but the saving would be better realised if they had SAL as well.

    I guess this is a good alternative for people who buy from Hobby Search since they ship via EMS too.

    I would love to try Amiami but I'm not going to pay EMS. You'll still end up paying about the same price for a sales figure after you calculate the cost of shipping and conversion fees. No thank you.

    The same for me. I just use SAL or in last resort registered airmail. Imagine if just to USA is expensive. To Peru it's the double.

    But, I wonder what items would qualify for Japan only? If it's for exclusive items, it's not like we can't get them anyway. (although for a much higher price... >_>) I think Japan only items would be more like eroge and other 18+ stuff, since they have that on the Japanese site, but not on the English one.

    This...

    The stupid moral sh*tstorm about Eroge is still around over there so its a good guess this is what there referencing...Alot of 18+ has "For Japan only" or similar things printed on them in English these days...sad really...

    But shouldn't affect figures too much I hope.

    It's not just cause of that "shitstorm" I think, it's not been possible to order 18+ items directly from a Japanese store for a long time now. It's been that way on amazon.co.jp for a long while now, way before that stuff happened.

    I haven't but I know a few people on /toy/ had and the only complaint was that a lot of the stuff that was 'in stock' that they ordered ended being backordered by the time they got their order confirmation emails.

    Apparently their EMS isn't overly expensive but, obviously, you have to expect the normal prices overall.

    I might be ordering from them at some point just to see how their service is.

    Thanks for the fast reply timelord_science its good that there EMS isn't overly expensive because some shops way overcharge for EMS . There is one figure that i want at the moment but with EMS i usualy wait to order untill i find 2-3 figures that i want so ill give it a little while and see if anything else comes up

    I actually placed an order with them last night which was when I discovered the news. lol
    I wasn't planning on it, but then they had the one item I've been looking for that's out of stock everywhere else for 40% off. (OoO)!

    I created a user ID to make the purchase and after ordering the item I immediately received an Order Acknowledgment e-mail. So this was Japanese Time 2:30 PM Tuesday, 10/27. Then I received my order confirmation with my grand total (with shipping) 1 hour later. I paid with paypal exactly another hour later, and then received my Shipment Tracking and Order Status at JT 7:30 PM. Actually, I received a sort of censored shipping number so I can't track it yet.
    [EDIT] Okay, then I received my Shipping Notification 10/28 at JT 6 PM.
    [EDIT] Yay, I got my package today! So that would be Sunday, 11/01 in Japan...at 4:30 AM. Well let's just say that took 5 days.
