I'm from Italy too and I've been buying from HLJ for at least four years.

Not even in one occasion I had my parcels lost or damaged (OK, I had a couple of dented boxes, but the contents were fine) and the average time in which I receive parcels is three weeks.
Maybe I'm just lucky, but I think you should definitely try to buy from HLJ. It is not only cheaper, but you can buy models that are impossible to find in Italy like resin ones. And, on top of that, you can finally do without those shopkeepers who keep telling you that the so and so model is out of production!!!

If you need more info e-mail me privately.

Ciao, Max.
