wow. I just looked up the aleck 64. Tower and Shaft does look like a lot of fun. However, you are right, even if you get every game on it, I only see 2-3 games I would want.

I'm not holding my breathe, but I would be interested in a X2 mobo if anyone backs out. I can pay immediately, and wait time is no issue for me.

Greetings,

Long post coming - please read carefully...

Email from our seller with ship quotes:
Dear Mike,



Hello.

We resumed from today.

I calclulated the freight charges for each shipping method as below. Due to size and weight (8kg mother and 1.4kg I/O with cable) this ship in 3 boxes.

1)UPS-NEXT
JPY120,260

2)EMS
JPY109,300

3)SAL
JPY90,700

4)SPP (about 2 months)
JPY48,150

Which shipping method do you prefer?

So in laymans terms - $915 to ship EMS (express, 3-5 days) or $404 to ship by boat (6-10 weeks).

Being in 3 boxes - we aren't getting the normal group buy savings - though there are still some savings for sure. However, at 20lbs each, factoring in US shipping on top of that...that erodes most of the savings. I did ask what it would cost to ship a single mobo and I/O (18lbs and 3lbs) - (23lbs boxed). I was given a rough estimate to compare (see blow) You are still paying slightly more - but not much.

Here's is the breakdown:
Group Buy / Boat Shipping
X2 - $209 item + $8 fee + $33 ship = $250 + US ship ($12-25) = $262-275
I/O w/cables - $65 item +$2.50 fee + $12 ship = $79.50 + US ship ($7-11) = $86-90

Group Buy / EMS shipping
X2 - $209 item + $8 fee + $76 ship = $293 + US ship ($12-25) = $305-318
I/O w/cables - $65 item +$2.50 fee + $25 ship = $92.50 + US ship ($7-11) = $99-103

Solo Buy / Boat Shipping
X2 - $209 item + $8 fee + $57 ship = $274
I/O w/cables - $65 item +$2.50 fee + $17 ship = $85

Solo Buy / EMS shipping
X2 - $209 item + $8 fee + $118 ship = $335
I/O w/cables - $65 item +$2.50 fee + $31 ship = $98.50

Please confirm in thread or via PM if you are still in at the group buy pricing and shipping by BOAT (6-10 weeks).

Thank you,
-Mike

At those prices, wouldnt solo buy make more sense? I imagine shipping from you once it arrives in the US will be a few bucks cuz of the weight.

Personally, I'd choose EMS right to my door but I'm fine with the SS Taito weighing anchor.

Thanks!

Haha, awesome. I'm in for whatever, not in a hurry to get the i/o

It's still a boatload cheaper than ebay.

I would prefer group ems, but would do boat if I'm the only one :-) I already got my extra ram and drive so I'm itching to play badly but either way I'm in!

I'm working to get a bit of an extra discount on these; RE: we are essentially paying shipping (x3) - 3 boxes, but still, this is a great deal for them as they are packing 3 boxes instead of 12...so I think there is some goodwill here to help offset the high shipping. As such...

I'm going to just call these a flat:
---$266 shipped to you on the X2's ($250 now as gift or plus 3.5%, $16 as GOODS when they arrive from me to you)
---$88 shipped to you on the Capcom I/O's ($79 now as gift or plus 3.5%, $9 as GOODS when they arrive from me to you)
---$351 shipped to you on both ($329 now as gift or plus 3.5%, $22.00 as GOODS when they arrive from me to you)

Send payments as gift or plus 3.5% for the items only (do not send US shipping yet) to mjmjr25 AT hotmail DOT com

These will ship on TUESDAY of next week and should arrive around MID-JULY

Is it too late for me to participate in the group buy? I'd like to buy two of these for my cabs:
