For those who preordered Transformers MPG Shouki on Amazon Japan, you'll notice that his price dropped into the $120s since first available. The price shipped for many westerners comes to around $160 USD. Well it seems, prices in the west, which were much higher initially, have now become more competitive since we are seeing a price drop across the board. This is good news to those who'd rather buy from Pulse than Amazon japan (even though Amazon Japan will still ship this sooner than anyone) since Pulse is now selling this toy for $158.99 USD. We are seeing the same price at Entertainment Earth and similar price drops at other online retailers like BBTS, TFSource, ect.

People did complain that this licensed Masterpiece combiner toy was expensive, well is this a price you can now better stomach? Let us know. Below are links and images regarding the price drops as well as images from the past months posted by Takara.

Thankfully the price shipped on Amazon Japan includes everything. Even though Pulse Price at $159 USD will get you free shipping, that doesn't include Tax, so yeah Amazon Japan won out this time, thankfully.

Also, while the Amazon.jp site says this is still shipping June 2022. I got a delay notice last week for July 2022. Hasbro says currently 6/25/22, of course their dates are Always subject to change, so we shall see. I can't change anything at this point anyway.

Not seeing that price on Amazon Japan, but they do have a pre-order price guarantee so that's fine. Glad they also set the shipping costs because that went up about 400JPY.

I honestly wanted to change my order now that it's cheaper, but we are passed the Amazon.jp cancellation time.

I hope the Amazon Japan cost drops. It's usually like 15-20% cheaper than importing retail

Great to hear. Still not 100% sure if I'll keep my BBTS pre order or not, but this makes it much more likely that I will.

It won't go lower, this is the cheaper price we were all expecting. What we were not expecting is that the western imports would lower their price t be more competitive.

But as of right now, the Amazon japan price is exactly 20% lower than the import prices.

But, for me right now, it is exactly the same to get it shipped with tax from Pulse as it is to get it from amazon japan shipped

Are you sure? I know every state has different tax rates. However, right now for me on Amazon Japan it is ¥ 17,511, after shipping, which is $151.80, which should be the final price as I understand it. Meanwhile Pulse is $158.99 plus taxes ($12.32) brings the total to $171.31, if I were to order from them.

basically a $20 savings with Amazon Japan.

My order right now shows a total cost of 19,220 yen, or $166.63. Pulse for me would cost $168.53, so basically $1.90 in savings. and if I would switch to say BBTS, I could use paypal credit and it would still be the same cost basically.

Interesting. It could be a rare case. because you are on the East Coast (further to ship from Japan, than myself being on the West Coast), plus PA taxes being less, where the savings almost negate one another.

Again, a reason why it is good to do the research based on each persons location. tax and shipping rates.

I guess the one advantage is that allegedly it will ship for Amazon.JP customers first, before Pulse, or any other 3rd Party U.S. retailers gets it. If that is a determining factor. For some its nice. For others it doesn't matter

Which is what I would have done, had the the importers used the adjusted price originally and Amazon japan offered cancellations past 30 days. It is really weird that they dropped the price $50 after a month and a half.

I'm way up here in Maine and my final cost is basically the same as yours. Some of our Canadian friends are 250 miles north of me and they got roughly the same price before their added tax.

DMax, just to be sure, you were logged in when ordering?
