Thanks in advance.
Chances are you would receive the next issue and not the current one. They probably don't have any of the Oct issue left sadly...

Thats basically about 45-50USD, so 20+ bucks a magazine and no sign of animedia that I saw. I imagine if you they had it and you added it in the price would go up by another 1500 yen just for shipping probably, and then whatever the cost of the mag itself is (probably 10ish USD)

Personally, for me, that is a little bit expensive... even if I could afford it easily. I mean if you found another shop online or a local one that had you could basically buy probably 6 or 7 mags total for the price amazon japan wants due to only shipping EMS.

Same, had money issue too, too much figurines for the past 3 months, especially those figurines that are out of print and i had to get it from ebay, which cost about SGD$40-$60 more for me =_="

Anyway, Amazon Japan only use EMS because it is safe and fast, amazon had to ensure its customers satifactory in the items sold, but then in a sense that its alot more costly to use EMS

They don't currently have them in stock but they will when the shippment arrives to them. So just add this link as a "favorite" and check it on a daily basis. Eventually they will arrive, rest assured.

Thanks alot for the information everyone, it was all very helpful. I wonder when Akadot will have them in stock. I guess I'll just have to wait a while, hopefully they'll have them in soon.

Why not just buy it through amazon.co.jp? The fourth seller down the list ships internationally. With shipping it would come to around 7500 yen/$65 USD, which isn't cheap, but you can buy it if you want it enough.

Fate T. Harlaown figure has released. View it here

It's selling quick... Already "Low Stock" and it was released months after the Nanoha PVC figure which still has plenty in stock.

Edit: Now back-ordered *Cries*

Which is why if you want a figurine you should always pre-order it either from a local store which does that or online.

Though really, it doesn't surprise me at all that it is already backordered and Nanoha isn't. Besides a possibility of more being made or a new shipment (for Nanoha, which may have also gone backordered shortly after release), a lot of people were complaining about the Nanoha, specifically her face and that she looked like she "has a Da Capo head" or something like that. The Fate on the other didn't have nearly as many complaints, and was (imo, and proved by this in a sense) a lot more well received then the Nanoha one. That isn't to say the Nanoha one is necessarily a bad figure... just not as well received.
