Hey guys, I haven't been ordering stuff for quite a while, now I getting something from Mandarake, are there any changes with shipping fees? I'm getting a figma Griffith, so SAL would be around 700 or 1300 yen if I remember correctly?

>>100959533
They use green paper and it's not as good as Honto in my opinion.
What are you ordering?

The handling fee is for order below 5k, not 4k. You can ask them to undervalue in the comment box when placing the order to declare whatever amount you want.

I fucked up on my order. I had the Date a Live swimsuit edition on preorder from HobbySearch so I am going to try to contact CDJapan to remove it. If possible, I'm also going to try to cancel the To Love-Ru Darkness Official Databook since I added that to make my order over 10k yen for bonus points. If I can remove both of those, I will be buying all four volumes of Sakura Trick.

I was also planning on getting the Date a Live Rinne Utopia artbook but I will probably get that off Amazon.jp since I have to make a textbook order from them soon, so the artbook will only be 400 shipping.

Ah yeah, I do that too, though in my experience more often than not hardly anything happens in the last few minutes. I guess I just got lucky most of the time.
It could also be because I usually choose auctions with worse start prices that end nearly at the same time as cheaper ones. Most of the time people bidwar each other on the cheaper one and I can fly under the radar while ending up cheaper.
>>
>>100964499
I can spoonfeed you straight up and tell you this isn't legit. There's only one right now which I see on Y!JP for 28k. It shows up on Manda occasionally, here:
http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/ja/search.do?action=keyword&doujin=all&keyword=%E5%B0%91%E5%A5%B3%E9%A8%8E%E5%A3%AB%E5%9B%A3+%E6%8A%B1%E3%81%8D&searchStrategy=keyword
Just keep an eye on this and one will likely pop up within the next few months. As a dakimakuraer I've found this hobby is mostly about waiting.

They better not try to stop Japanese stores from selling to North America. Shipping from Japan to Canada is usually cheaper and faster than shipping US to Canada.

They're all packed up in my closet, but my favorite one is this one. GSC's Aoba from DMMD is a close second, but only because the base/pose is awesome, and not for any real affection for the character.

>>100966069
>GSC
Meant Max Factory; all this talk of GSC got it stuck in my head. Speaking of which, will there be any real benefit to them having a US store? I figured they'd just jack up the base price to account for the cost of shipping figures there in the first place. Is there usually a significant difference in price in, say, Kotobukiya's American stores instead of buying from Amiami?

Ranges from 5-15 dollar savings, plus cheaper shipping I'd say. Of course, it takes 1-2 months longer to even get them in compared to the JP release which means I never bother.

Yeah but I get hit by tax on every single package anyway with a handling fee too, plus it means they get held in customs for ages as well. I'm fine with paying te tax now and having it go through quicker.

I don't thin the delivery time will get any better. According to NY they might take up to 10 days to ship out your order, then a few days to get it to France, then a couple more to process it through customs and local shipping at the end.

They claim 8-10 days of delivery but that's complete bullshit if you check the numbers.

And with that it loses all value for me, even if customs rape me it's at least only 19%.
>>
>>100968652
Add on top that is more expensive than EMS for orders under 6kY of shipping, and longer delivery times.
>>
>>100968594
Considering that using RSAL for me is around 2 weeks to hit my country, then I've got to hope that it goes through customs and gets a fee put in it that can be paid at my post office which will take about 5 days. If they don't think it's a suitable fee then they'll ask for an invoice to be sent by snail mail and then send it to the post office.

I get the feeling I'm the only one in the UK that has been put on a shitlist by customs.
>>
>>100968759
Problem is, you are paying as much as you'd pay with EMS, and getting RSAL delivery times.
>>
>>100968759
The UK is bollocks with customs. Anything over 15 GBP, gets a 8 GBP handling fee + tax. Usually the handling fee > tax.
You are paying to be taxed.

>>100968825
My last order was about 800 yen more expensive than RSAL and cheaper than EMS. I'd be happy if I got RSAL times if it means I don't get an addition 5 days - 2 weeks waiting time due to customs deciding that my package looks undervalued.

>>100968901
It's especially bad when they begin to question whether you're being taxed enough. If I order through Manda now I've got to have them put the correct price since customs will ask for an invoice to be sent if it looks too low.

Well I think customs in the EU is high as fuck generally because they want to encourage trading within the EU (which is tax free). This only benefits businesses rather than consumers though.

What are people's general experience with the rating on amiami pre-owned figs?

I am a beginner buyfag, as much as i've been getting a fig here and there over the past decade or so, I only really have a dozen-ish. All bought locally really so I have no real knowledge of ordering from overseas.

The guide doesn't really have experience based stuff in it, so i'm asking here.

(Recently acquired 100k and have always been a relative poorfag. wanted to deck out a detolf or 2 with a bunch of figs i've always wanted, if only I could find the Blood Spattered Berserk Guts by Art of War fig, i'd likely spew quad figs at whoever has one)
So yeah I was wondering how accurate the amiami pre-owned quality rankings are? Since i'll likely be grabbing a few from there.

I got rekt.

PM from MFC:

"Wow uh okay. So I take the time to wrap, box, physically take the item down to the store, pay for fuel to and from the post office, only for you to turn around and tell me that shipping is too expensive and not worth bothering with? Why didn't you think that you would be completely wasting someone's time before contacting them in the first place? People like you are the reason why quotes aren't free. My time is worth nothing, but when people like you are involved, it costs a fortune.

This is not how business works in the real world. Not that you would know anything about that, because business is generally reserved for adults. You can't PM me again - I've blacklisted you for being a completely fucking moronic time waster - and I pray you don't contact anyone else on this site only to waste their time as well. Rather than wasting people's time I suggest sticking to online stores which you'll likely just end up banned from due to stupidity and your evident indecisiveness."
>>
>>100970793
I honestly don't like the outer edges of the cabinet. Detolfs are pure glass and figures do not get obstructed by white aluminium bars.

Then again, if you spend thousands of dollars on figures then why not spend an equal worthy amount on the cabinet.

Same with people buying 2000 dollar PC's but still have a 40 year old wooden desk.

Most US sellers like to use UPS ground because the USPS is so bad, which means paying import fees higher than cost more than the product itself.
>>
>>100971800
I see you never read the section of the guide dedicated to shipping, and how the price is unknown until the item is actually packed and ready to be shipped.

I hope you get banned everywhere else, too.
>>
>>100971800
Well, did they give you a shipping quote before they went through all of that? If you knew how much shipping was but suddenly decided it was too expensive, then you do suck. If they jumped at the chance to send it as soon as you contacted them about possibly purchasing it, without waiting for an okay, then they're the idiot.
>>
>>100971800

>Wow uh okay
>>
>>100972067
This. Even if you can't be completely accurate without going into the post office, it's more than possible to get a decent idea of the shipping cost online. If they ran to the post office the moment you asked about buying it, that's a failure on their part.
>>
>>100971800
This:
>>100971921
>>
>>100971800
1. You're a douche.
2. Whoever was complaining about you sounds like a child.
>>
>>100972067
Only if you know the exact weight with all of the packaging. So he would still have to go through most of the hassle and buy a scale.
>>
>>100972227
you can go right on the USPS website (or UPS or whoever) and put in the to/from zip codes and get print out a label right on the spot, there is no reason to actually go to a post office unless you needed a box.

but he's still a dick for cancelling because of shipping costs.
>>
>>100972409
you can even just use a bathroom scale to get a ballpark estimate, the difference isn't going to be huge if you're a couple ounces off.
>>
>>100971800
I don't understand why they were already at the post office before you paid.
>>
>>100972498
If you print the labels like >>100972413 said you have to be right
>>
>>100972413
You'd have to know the weight, but you can get a pretty good idea of this with any scale or even just (over)estimating it by feel. Like I said, if he already knew the shipping costs and then just canceled anyway, he's a dick. But if they guy didn't even let him know the shipping cost before packaging it up and heading off to the post office, he's not very smart, either.
>>
>>100972506
My guess is that the conversation went something like this:
>I want your figure. Can you give me a shipping quote?
>Guy boxes up his fig, takes it down to the post office, and says "how much would it cost to ship this to where Anon lives"?
>Comes back online and tells Anon shipping is $toomuch
>Anon bails because of shipping
>Guy gets royally fucking pissed that Anon bailed on him

You're in the UK and you've been asked to provide an invoice when customs don't believe the value?
>>
>>100972632
That's how I imagine it, too. Numerous tools exist for the seller to have been able to give a decent estimate for the shipping. Hell, if he was going to ship it, he should have known the weight already.
>>
>2014
>the interwebs
>fucking flat rate boxes.

Unless your sending shit out country... then RESEARCH SHIT.
>>
>>100972632
I don't understand why anyone would go to the FUCKING POST OFFICE to check the shipping costs.

So was the seller going to message Anon from the post office, and wait for a reply before sending it off right then? Because if he went home to tell Anon about the price, and was planning to go back to the post office to ship it off, I think the seller is in no business selling shit online.
>>
>>100972817
I always go to the post office to see how much shit costs to ship, but I also work right next to one and don't get mad if people back out.
>>
>>100972632
If that's how it went, anon wasn't a fag
>>
>>100972798
And if you've any experience with shipping things it's not that hard to estimate a cost without any tools at all.

I take it bad anon, you're likely not a douche.
>>
>>100972498
>>100972409
Even at that, it's a fucking FIGURE, MFC and any other site you buy off has the weight for said item right there on the damn page. Adding in your bubble wrap + box isn't rocket science.

I don't know about you, but when I'm interested in a figure and ask for a shipping quote, I seriously don't expect the seller to take it to mean "I want it 100% please pack it up and spend gas and go to the post office to find the shipping cost". I expect a regular seller to estimate the weight and then use the handy online USPS price chart to find the corresponding shipping cost from the comfort of his computer.

>>100982003
Actually using the straps will result in wear and tear and the rubber will eventually harden/become brittle, which means the rubbers strap will snap at the weakest point, typically where the metal ring is attached at the very top. Rubber gets dirty easily as well due to its grippy/rubbery nature and it's hard to clean once the grime embeds. And then you lose the strap because it snapped at the top.

The proper way to collect them is to hang them indoors in a closed space like on a jewelry rack or in individual clear plastic sleeves.

Actually, you can clean rubber straps with white vinegar. It works great on cords and stuff too. But you do have a point with the weak point. The only reason I have my Levi on my keys is because I don't have any other SnK straps, and so it would lead to an uneven amount hanging on my wall.
>>100982654
No problem. Even if she did, the rust really isn't hard to get rid of. Soak it in white vinegar, or soda, for a few hours and it wipes right off.
>>
>>100982292
No idea. I guess they were fucking around on /a/ just like me, the filenames made it pretty obvious. Although while I got rid of all the evidence completely they stopped at the bin level.

Some of the straps I get are pretty rare and I have to fight other Japanese otaku for them. It would be pretty hard to get a second copy, and if I did, I'd probably auction it to the highest bidder. I've had people bid $30 on rubber straps, a very nice turn.

And not to mention that guns are pretty dangerous, while PVC is completely inoffensive.

>>100984555
Just because i can't unbox them right when i get them doesn't mean i like them any less than the one's I'm displaying, it's just so hard to decide which ones to have out.

Eh, i have a safe, so i'm not too worried, but it is a concern.

And the figs depreciate when they are unboxed, but can also go up simply due to rarity even if unboxed, and my guns just depreciate as they get shot. I'm not fooling myself into thinking its a long term investment, but I also realize that the American market is filled with garbage, and if you offer the real thing and seem genuine, people will buy these at good prices.

There isn't a Rakuten Rakuten store. Think of it as Amazon without Amazon, 3rd party sellers only. Like eBay but most listings aren't auctions. You need to do your research and make sure the seller is trustworthy and does ship to you. Some sellers will only do EMS, for example.

You're mocking her but I'm willing to bet that everybody in here has played at least one of every single game in that series. The real problem is that she probably hasn't and is just listing popular stuff to be popular.

I'm mocking her because she's probably one of those retards that like "the zeldas" thinking the series started with OoT. Pretty much what >>100991370 said

It was about 3000 yen starting fee for one book. Now it's down to 1200 yen and same service.

I think she's probably only tried the popular stuff and is a normal, mainstream gamer who hasn't really matured in taste or experience, given her writing and expression quality.

Very worth it if you get 2kg tomes like that JoJoveller book or multiple heavy artbooks.

Stop this. Yes, you are correct, that is a standard place for seams in a real life Kimono, but when the "seams" look like the persons arm was chopped off with the Kimono as a single piece, then reattached, it's bad.

On second thought, paying 680 per prize figure is too much even if I can turn a profit. I'll save my money for something I like more, like Rei-chan goods.

Very true. But I really see no further notice from Avant Garde figs and their websites are inactive. It seemed very doubtful from the beginning.

>>100995551
You can either store them in their packaging, hang a lot of them in your keys and/or phone or get a cork board and hang all the keychains collected with pins/nails. I think pic related sewed in the keychains or made holes for them in the fabric and then stuck it together to the cork board.
A bare corkboard is fine though, especially if most shelves are pine wood or something beige-ish.
