AmiAmi is currently offering Barba★rosa for $33 (2,784 yen), and El Alamein for $42 (3,520 yen).

According to another site, Barba★rosa measures 21.5 × 10 × 7.8 cm and weighs 880 grams, and El Alamein measures 21.5 × 10.1 × 8 cm and weighs 740 grams, for possible shipping sizes of 43 + 10.1 + 8 cm (61.1 linear cm) or 21.5 + 10.1 + 15.8 cm (57.4 linear cm) and a shipping weight of 1,620 grams, not including packaging.

Assuming packaging doesn't push the weight over 2,000 grams, cheapest shipping (SAL, unregistered) should be $24 or less (dimension requirements are l + w + h ≤ 90 cm, and l ≤ 60), for a total of $99 shipped.

Too bad I already have Barbarossa, but it's a good buy for those who haven't gotten them yet.

Re: Barbarosa + El Alamein for $99 shipped?
Got a reply back from AmiAmi—good news:
AmiAmi wrote:
Hello, Thanks for your inquiry.
The packaged weight of Barbarossa and El Alamein is 1,9 kg - 2.0kg,
almost the weight limit but should be able to ship by SAL small packet.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.
Best regards,
Koichi Nakayasu

Re: Barbarosa + El Alamein for $99 shipped?
Hmm...

I e-mailed AmiAmi from two different e-mail addresses, since they've had problems with their e-mails not coming through to addresses with some e-mail providers.

Today I got back a response from a different representative:

Hello,

Thank you for your mail. Unfortunately those items are too heavy to be shipped together via SAL Small Packet. Combined they would weigh about 2.25 kg including the packing box.

If you would like to have them shipped via SAL, sending them separately is the only option, I'm afraid.

Best regards,

Ricky Wilson

With the Anime girls or with the WWII photos?

I assumed the anime; would WWII weigh any different?

I guess that could be the source of the discrepancy.

Weird. Amazon.jp is listing the weight of Barba Rossa as a lot less than the photograph vesion.
Anyways, it might be best to respond to the second email and tell them about the first quote because something is odd. I don't think the box and packing slip should weigh 440g.

Just curious what the resolution ended up being? Did you get the shipped as a single package?

Nah, I ended up not getting it.
