Did you have to create a new account with Amazon Japan? It seems my US Amazon login info isn't working.

Yeah, it's a separate thing. I ordered a book from Amazon JP a couple years ago.
I did a test order for a Master Grade Zaku II. Base price on Amazon US is $35, on Amazon JP closer to $25. But shipping from Amazon JP was also about $25, with no apparent cheaper option. So it will probably end up being a wash with other import options.

3 Masterpiece Inferno's shipped to me come to be the same price from HLJ before shipping.
So if you're buying multiple items, and there is a discount (like around 20%). It's definitely better than anyone else is likely offering.
With me I have to buy multiples for locals and friends, so this is a great thing for me.
I would purchase from them before but had to use a costly proxy in most cases.

Masterpiece Cheetor would cost $62 shipped to the US (and probably within 2 or 3 days of release) from Amazon Japan.
BBTS has him for $76 and HLJ's price (you can't order him right now) is around $56 before shipping.
Masterpiece Inferno would cost $114 shipped to the US from Amazon Japan.
BBTS has him for $140 and HLJ for around $110 before shipping.

i know youre not really interested in the answer as to the "when", but i think it was 2 or 3 weeks ago. they havent been doing it long. im gonna get uw computron from there. i can pay 148 from amazon japan or 180 from tfsource (and bbts is perpetually on pre-order...)
I did a test order for a Master Grade Zaku II.
oh thats pretty. ive always liked the zaku II. its not flashy or anything, but it gets the job done (until the gundam shows up anyway)

when setting up an address, with there being no western style city / state option, do i just put that in the "address line 2" section?

Hot damn. Doesn't Amazon Japan sometimes have exclusive accessories, too?
They used to. Masterpiece Bumblebee was the last I believe, or maybe it was Wheeljack. Either way it's been a long time since they've had any.
Now they're all Hasbro Asia or Transformers Asia exclusives, right?
