You don't pay until they've got the figures in stock. As for your total, it's $166 + change, roughly. All you have to do is Google "17,280 yen in USD" & there ya go.

Yeah, Google is pretty amazing! I always tell my mom, like, yo, if you have a question just literally type it as you would ask a person in real life, & boom, G's got you.

As long as you got a confirmation order, you should be in the clear. Come late Sept or whatever they'll shoot you an invoice to pay via whatever means you choose.

Yep. So... it says it'll release by the end of this month, right?

Kaiyodo (Release Date: late Sep-2014)
It has begun... not sure if my body is ready.


edit: One of the links in OP from the HLJ site has this up:
Quote:
This item has been removed from our site; this is because the manufacturer has canceled production of this item. Due to this, we cannot take orders for this item, or make it available.

I haven't gotten any emails from Amiami saying that. HLJ is still taking preorders on them and Amiami's preorders are sold out.

Now I wouldn't be surprised to see them get pushed back as that tends to happen with really popular items.

Only Raphael is sold out at amiami.
That being said it's still a first come first serve preorder
And over selling can occur, so if anyone does want one they should preorder early for the best chance of getting it. Just I case there is no second release.

Raph and Leo are showing up,now at full price. Around 32.00 inc postage.
I'm going to order later today. I will post an expected arrival date, but I'm guessing that these are good to go.
Mikey and Don are set for October.

Update. Ordered. Stated as in stock. No delivery date given though.

There's no reason to believe they've been cancelled, & there's nothing to update. Just waiting on the release.

I've ordered from amiami many times, if any of you have questions...

IIRC Revoltechs are made by how many pre-orders they start getting so if they don't get many pre-orders they don't make many, etc. Oh and yeah even when the pre-orders sell out, there'll still be a few more available when the item is ready to ship, how many really depends on the product. Kamen Riders you're pretty much out of luck if you didn't get a pre-order, not sure about the turtles though. You'll also get a few more in stock about 8 days after the item is released because of all the people who didn't pay their pre-orders, those items go back in stock. Again you have to be pretty lucky to be online at the time they do it because they sell really quickly.

Customer Service with amiami is really up to your luck, sometimes they're nice but usually they're assholes and will ban your account/address from ever ordering there again just because you wanted to cancel one of the items in your order. They literally say "Oh ok, we'll cancel your item and so there aren't any more problems with you ordering too much we'll cancel your account, thanks for shopping", It's pretty insane.

So yeah, I haven't ordered from them in a long time, and only have an order for this month. What sucks is that all orders are monthly so i tried to wait to order Classics Raphael until September so it'd be in my order this month and when September 1st hit he was out of stock

Anyone know where I can buy this figure online that ships internationally and it's not ebay?

Cancelled? No.
They have been scheduled for a September and October release since day 1.
The two for September (Raph and Leo) are showing up on line with full price as opposed to deposits. That's always a sign here that the figures are enroute to the sellers.

Wow, thats the kind of customer service experience that would really stick with you. Thanks for the warning about them; they where luckily sold out to begin with.

I just pre-ordered the whole group on HobbyLinkJapan. I would imagine they ship internationally. I felt bad about it, too - because I had a pre-order at BigBadToyStore all ready. But if they can't be bothered to lower the price ($219, versus $160-something), then it just can't be helped.

Edit: Oh - sorry I thought you where looking for the Revoltech Raphael. Best choice is ebay; sorry.

awesome.


These have definitely beefed up my amiami orders.

Aside from these my Sep/Oct amiami order includes SH Monster Arts 2014 Godzilla, Super Action Statues for Kira Yoshikage & Killer Queen from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and an Armin Nendoroid for my sister from Attack on Titan. These will be my first SH Monster Arts and JJBA SAS purchases.

good bye money, I will miss you
