    If anyone scored and wants to unload that Gerz, please let me know. Sigh.

    Is that new mini the sculpt that was shown very, very early on the Ilu Ilu blog? Looks really familiar. If so - awesome!

    The blue is stunning - maybe the best one so far :shock:

    And really dig the new mini dude - pretty cool how ilu ilu changes things up for the Medicom releases like with the drill tank!

    Hopefully this doesn't sound too stupid, but does Medicom take international orders, and, if so...how does someone with only a tentative grasp of nihongo go about doing it?

    medicom does take international orders for certain stuff. normally they will specify it on the product listing.
    however given that the gorz pair will likely be quite a small run, i think it probably wouldn't make it for international sales.

    it's japan only and because of the limited run you end up paying double the listed price using an agent.
    i'm going to keep collecting pictures for the time being.

    Re: ILU ILU Neo Gorilla, Tokio, Görz, & Other! Database 1st

    Here is my trick for ordering directly from Medicom's Rakuten shop. I have pulled it off many times and plan on doing so for this release as well.

    http://item.rakuten.co.jp/project1-6/45 ... =rm_241867
    Figures go on sale on 8/5 12:00PM JST
    8,900円

    1. Get a Tokyo forwarding address from Tenso : http://www.tenso.com/en/
    2. Create a Rakuten account in English + enter your Tokyo address : http://global.rakuten.com/en/
    3. Order the item yourself and pay with your own credit card
    4. Items ships to Tenso
    5. Pay Tenso a small handling fee and actual overseas shipping
    6. Tenso ships the item you

    Save yourself crazy third party shipping fees! There is a nice tutorial over on Tenso explaining the process in more detail.

    Edit: One more thing.. Medicom splits their new release online inventory between their main site, Rakuten shop and Yahoo Shopping site.

    http://store.shopping.yahoo.co.jp/proje ... oertz.html

    This mixes it up a bit to ensure not everyone is bombarding one site when these go live.

    Having a hell of a time working out what to put on Rakuten for city/ward, and shipping address. Man, and I thought it was hard to mail stuff in the States...

    :razz: It can be pretty confusing at first. Here are step by step instructions on what to put where in either English or Japanese:

    If you are entering the info on Rakuten Japan: https://www.tenso.com/en/guide/buy/addr ... #rakutenjp

    Rakuten Global English Site: https://www.tenso.com/en/guide/buy/addr ... #rakutengl

    EDIT:

    If you are logged into Tenso, it will pre-populate your Tenso ID number (TSXXXX) in your Street Address when you click on the above links. If not, it will just read “TS00000”. Make sure you have your actual ID entered on Rakuten.

    Thanks Nama, definitely appreciated. I have gone through agents but this sounds like a better option.

    Here's a closer look of the mini dudes. Who are none other than the Tokio guy. Very nice micro sculpt.

    Quick follow-up on the Tenso/Rakuten stuff...

    I noticed that Tenso recently added "通販商品配送サービス TENSO 取次ぎ" to the shipping address section on my account. Basically they are now adding that "this is a Tenso forwarding service address," and want you to add this to your address on Rakuten, Amazon or wherever.

    My concern is that this may cause companies like Medicom who do not ship overseas to not even ship to a Japanese address if they think you live outside of Japan. I cannot be sure of this though.

    I set up my Rakuten account many years ago, and decided not to add this new bit. I just ordered something from another company and no one from Tenso said anything when the package arrived. It certainly is not needed on the Rakuten end to place an order. Just a matter if Tenso will get pissed. 8)

    Just a heads up...
