Not to say any of the PPs are liars but there are some pretty good hackers and whatnot. However, you have a point, with the amount of this "hacked" ID Ls, it's much more likely that it's legit. I'm just always skeptical about things. :P Did anyone mention Bandai making an announcement?

I don't recall myself Bandai Asia making announcements about things --- their releases just pop out from out of nowhere.
But if this is not exactly a release and is a "hack", we still have to find out who did it and how.

But judging from the pictures and video that's starting to come around, it's more likely that it is a release.
I would prefer a hack though, so we won't have to buy another one instead of trying to track them down.

Unfortunately we have very little information right now. The least we can expect is that they would start popping out like mushrooms within the next few days or weeks.
If they don't want to post the eBay seller where they got it from, then we have to look for alternates.
I made arrangements with my friend who lives in Singapore just to get a hold of one.

I'll keep you guys posted on whatever stuff I could find out.

Interesting either way, I agree. Though I do love that it is in English, I like the original Japanese better. Since the text was originally in Japanese, the spacing of the English stuff is a little weird but not completely obnoxious.

I do hope we get more info soon.

According to the person who posted the video on YouTube, it comes in the white packaging as we suspected.

I'm currently trying to find my way around the Chinese site along with people from TZ who were able to place their orders.
If I can manage to pull this off, we can use this to help other people who would like to order from there.

Hey I live in the US. I just ordered an iD L on Amazon on August 18th from seller Tokyo Japan Shop. It should arrive sometime this week or the next week or so. I am anticipated to see if it will be in English! Also I have a question. I forgot who it was. But someone stated that eBay was the only place left to get an iD L. But I just ordered one from Amazon !? Why didn't they mention Amazon?

As you may have observed from the discussion in the previous posts, the site where these English iD Ls are available are in Chinese.

To order from this site: http://item.taobao.c...6_3k1_786103316

You need to first sign up~ Just like ebay or any other site, you gotta make an account. You can make one here: http://member1.taoba..._info=&ex_sign=

It goes:

Account Name:
Password (underneath it will tell you if it's weak or strong)
Confirm Password
Verification Code (the image that shows up, enter it in... you might have to click the box to write it before the image pops up)

Hit the Yellow button and the next page is simply your email address... Put that in and click the button... Then check your junk mail... it might take a couple of minutes, so give it time. Then click the link to confirm your account, and there you go~

I dunno, I could give more instructions on how to actually purchase it... but, it's not too hard to figure out if you have Google Chrome translate it for you... :T Just remember that you might have to contact the seller so you can pay for the additional shipping (since the default shipping you can choose from seem to ship locally)

I was able to make an account, but it gives me $30 shipping for overseas and there's no other option.

That's weird. -_-

68+185 Yuan = approx CAD$ 86 :(

The only payment method I've seen so far is AliPay (a Chinese PayPal-like equivalent), but I think there would be at least MC/VISA support.
I'm still finding my way around the site.

I only paid $68 CAN each tama... I dunno... but then again, shipping was only 145 yuan... And yes, they accept Mastercard and other creditcards. When you pay for it, it gives you all the AliPay methods, but there are other tabs you can click for various ways to pay... I think you can also pay using Paypal, but don't quote me on that. I used Mastercard to pay.

Wow... I tried to kind of purchase another to see the shipping... I wonder why the shipping is so high~! Or maybe the guy I ordered from was nicer or something.... Because I accidentally paid for shipping as if I lived in China... so he contacted me asking me for more, since I live in Canada.

How did you set your address? It doesn't let you select a country, just 'Overseas'. And seeing from the screenshot I got above, I'll be charged 185 yuan instead of 145. Is yours from a different seller?

When I first entered in my info, it asked for my address, and the only option for Country, city, etc, was to select overseas. I kept trying to write my full address including my city and province, but it kept denying it. So I just did what was allowed and continued along. Then, when it came to payment, and I entered my Mastercard and everything, it asked again for address, and this time I was able to select Country, city, province... And then it was good.

Afterwards, I was still concerned whether they would get my address right, so I kept trying to contact the seller, when I noticed the IM service they have on the site... The seller was already trying to talk to me. He was asking me what Country I was from, and I gave him my full address again, just in case... then we settled the shipping, which he only asked for an additional 130yuan (because I accidentally only paid 15yuan).... Anyways... it sounds a bit confusing... believe me, I was confused... Hahaha~
