Anime-export usually offers the best price, besides amazon japan who no longer ship to NZ. Downside is you have to pay upfront

I have actually used New Zealand suppliers for recent orders since my ability to use Amazon Japan was removed.

They have been cheaper than other Japanese places and that was before the December GST increase.

So what do you do there Zippo? How do you contact the NZ suppliers and who are they?

Has anyone tried to order from ohmyprimus since the Coronavirus issues began? At the best of times their shipping took ages, but my order has been in transit since 22 April. Wasn't sure if something was wrong, or if it's just general Coronavirus Slowness affecting it.

Hopefully in your case it's the latter.
I made an order from them April 14th that was stuck in outbound for 4 weeks, FINALLY arriving in NZ this morning.
Also have an order from Sirtoys that took as long.
Show.Z got back to me saying they no longer ship anything over 2kg so had to refund and Robot Kingdom only does surface mail for the moment.
I do have a package coming from BBTS that dispatched yesterday which i've been told should arrive within a week. Keep you posted

So I hit up ohmyprimus, and DHL ecommerce is saying that NZ isn't accepting shipments from Singapore right now.
I can't find anything on the NZPost website link they sent, but there isn't a huuuuuge amount I can do other than demanding a refund (and given what a pain it is to find masterpiece dinobot in NZ I'm not too keen on kicking off the waiting game again somewhere else)

So warning for anyone else thinking of ordering from ohmyprimus right now - be careful. Sucks, 'cause they've always been good in the past.

I have one carrying Studio Series Scrapper that shipped out a month ago yesterday, with the last update being International departure from Chicago on the 25th of May.

Ouch...out of curiosity did you go with priority shipping?
He along with his wave buddy were a part of my order too. Funnily enough the day after I clicked "complete purchase" Scrapper & Sentinel started showing up in Auckland stores. Arrived this morning thanks to a friend

I did. They shipped it with Asendia, who from what I can see don't have a particularly good customer rating, so that's fun. If he starts showing up down here before my BBTS shipment does I'll probably grab him and stick the BBTS one under the Cathedral Christmas tree or sell it somewhere if it ever turns up. Luckily he was the only thing in the shipment because I somehow didn't have Pile of Loot turned on when I made the order and didn't discover the mistake until after it had gone.

Shipping update:
My June 15th order with BBTS just arrived today, so takes roughly 2.5 weeks with Ascendia's priority option.
Also, their tracking system is moot once it leaves the U.S as it still says the package is in Chicago.
Show.Z seems to take just as long
