Currently, there are three different sites where you can purchase figures from Japan, not including Yahoo Auction, which I will deal with in another post. These are generally for pre-order figures that were just announced. These sites include the following:
I usually use these sites to pre-order X-Plus figures and others that either aren’t released in the US or have sold out. You will have to pre-pay the entire order amount including shipping during the pre-order and they usually ship out your items once it is available. If you have online shops you have used before, make sure to leave a comment down below as these are just the shops I personally have ordered from and have successfully received items.
