This is the lowest price I've seen on Amazon for this set. 

 

The set is currently $13.04 + $3.99 shipping.

I dont understand why Amazon is able to ship 60+lb items via 2 day prime for free, yet they cant ship the Amano artbook prime because its too large?

Hah. I hadn't even thought about that.  I picked one up anyway but just thought "I guess it really is too heavy for free shipping" but you can get a TV shipped for free and they work with Prime... I'd guess it has to do with the price of the item overall vs the shipping cost?

My order is being for with credit so I wouldn't have even noticed that. Thanks for the heads up. 

 

Glad I waited on this. Now to see how damaged it'll show up...

Same thing with me, it auto picks 2 day so I just wanted to make sure nobody ends up with a $8+ whoops.

Wow thanks for sharing. This is prob the biggest impulse purchase I've ever made. Had this on my radar, but wasn't willing to pull trigger on it because it was like $100 lol

 

For $35? Saw the tweet, click a few links, entered some info and now its being shipped lol this thing weighs like 60 or 70 pounds.

 

Own every FF 1-13. A must own for me.

 

For the record, I hate Lighting and that whole world. #BeenWaitingForVersusSince2006

I believe the only difference is that this is missing the Book where it talks about the artist and his studio.

Why does it say 31.04 + 3.99 for shipping and 3.10 for tax?

why?

because it is not free.

not sure why you're confused.

Seems pretty straight forward to me.  It's not eligible for Amazon Prime or FSSS so you have to pay shipping and if you don't understand tax then there is no helping you.

I misunderstood the OP; I thought he meant it was 31.04 WITH tax.

I didn't include the tax because all states are different and some don't pay tax to Amazon.

Doubt it. Bought to dumbells(40lbs) and got prime. Would of been $30 with normal shipping by itself costing more than the actual dumbells. lol

That and authentic signature, flipbooks, etc....

Really cheap way to get your Amano fix, considering his thin Japanese softcovers usually go for about $30-40. >__>

FYI, this edition doesn't have the signature card/flipbook/interview book, but it's still pretty damn awesome.

Thanks ordered there's a couple if sellers selling for the same price for done reason, also does amazon charge shipping because of weight even though we have prime?

I pre-ordered it at $60. At this price, I might as well have a spare... 

 

FYI. If you have an order that has not shipped yet, you can try to contact CS to get them to add this to the order. I just did to save me $4 shipping (that order had free 2-day shipping too).

 

Thanks OP.
