KX in Japanese colors from Amazon Japan

I was doing some reading in another area about the new TC that apparently is only available in Japan, and someone posted a link to Amazon.japan that carries it.

Then, I remembered someone posting asking about how they might buy a KX in colors only available in Japan. So here is the Amazon.Japan web page for the KX and they list the colors and prices.... pentax kx - 家電&カメラ: 家電・カメラ

Here it is using Google translate page
Google Translate

and here is the yen to dollar conversion page via google

PS - I do not have a clue how customs and delivery goes via Amazon.japan

... so my question is how are the wild orange, Lego yellow, shocking green, hot pink and purple KXs selling?

I don't think there is a new TC out from Pentax (yet?). The one shown on Amazon appears to be the same old 1.7x TC.

You can't have electronics shipped through

"Health & Beauty, Sports & Outdoor, Toys & Hobbies, software, games, game consoles, Electronics, Home & Kitchen items and adult products can be shipped only to locations within Japan. Books, CDs, DVDs, and videos can be shipped to international addresses."

Also, Amazon's international shipping fees are kind of high anyway. To have a book shipped it's a 2,700en charge plus 300en per item. There are services like, however, that will buy the item for you and have it shipped to an international address.
