Default Columbo Complete Series (Japan)

I just noticed that the complete series of Colombo is being offered as a box set on Blu-ray in Japan. I found it on Amazon Japan, but unlike Canada, UK and France, I have never ordered anything (as an American in the USA) from Amazon Japan.

I do have several region-free Blu-ray players and happily use them to play region-locked disks from UK/France, but I wonder if I can do the same and place the item on in the shopping cart, login using the same American credentials and get it shipped state-side.

Anyway have any feedback on ordering Japanese issues Blu-rays from Amazon Japan and getting them shipped to the states?

Your U.S. Credentials won't work on btw, you have to create a new account. Only international Amazon site that makes you do that I think.

Create a new Amazon account for
Google Chrome will translate the site somewhat.
Shipping from is safely packed compared with many locations.
If an item wont ship to the US from amazon, use they will secure your identity with a few proofs, then have amazon ship to them, they ship to you.
Japan is Region A, since you're in the US (it sounds like)

Check with CDJapan and for prices, sometimes I've come out better there. CDJapan will accept paypal too.

If you need subtitles, research it first as 99% of my Japanese releases do not have English subs.

Germany also has this out, but i think it has lossy audio, but quite a bit less expensive

There's a German Blu now ?

I knew there was a Japanese but didn't know about a German set. That's one step closer to an English/American release I'm hoping.

Don't get excited. There is no German Bluray release beyond the single story By Dawns Early Light.
Blurays of other seasons listed on Amazon Germany are the first 2 seasons of the abandoned Australian release

The Japanese release has been available for 6 years.
I'd contact Fabulous Films who currently have a deal with Universal so with them you might get it for sub 150 but if they're not interested you should get the Japanese set and enjoy it
