    Yeah, generally when it’s an 8” figure or smaller the DHL shipping is about ¥1,600. I just had a big ass box from Buyee shipped to me via DHL that was $87 and change, which was a lot lower than I expected given the size of the box. I don’t have exact dimensions on me but I think it was about 14” tall and 16” wide. And the weight was about seven pounds.

    I’m in the same boat. Two massive boxes held at buyee for months. I’ve only consolidated the first one and although I don’t have the dimensions, the weight is only around 9 lbs. Unlike Robert however, dhl shipping is quoted at just shy of $300. So I wait :x

    @gazpacho Goddamn, $300?! :shock: I know dimensions play an equal part of the shipping charge as the weight does with DHL. So maybe it’s just a damn HONKIN’ box that’s killin’ the dollar amount. :| It’s a bummer to have to keep waiting, but to shave down the cost for EMS I’d say is worth it.

    Folks in Australia waiting on EMS to resume...
    Question... I'm trying to work out who is making the decisions re suspension of EMS to Australia?
    Because they sure are delivering to many other countries /destinations.
    Is the suspension decision being made by the Australian government? Or, are the decisions being made from Japan?
    Here's the link for the delivery breakdown for EMS, country by country (with specific detailed notes at the end of each column):

    @spacemonkey66 I think its a bit of both .. there are very limited flights and that bumps up the cost to get parcels on planes so EMS post prices vs delivery is out the window so I think its just been suspended .. I am in the same boat man and Melb is very difficult to post to at the mo unless you use private service like DHL

    You're based I'm Melbourne? Cool. Yes, I've had to resort to DHL and it's like double the price!

    I won the recent Atom lotto and he shipped using Yamato Transport. Sure it travelled round Asia but it made it.

    Weirdly enough a USPS parcel from the U.S. made a pit stop in Japan first. So its doable, EMS must not think it’s worth the trouble however.

    I had something shipped via Yamato Transport (and apparently handed off to UPS) recently as well. It got to me in about a week.
