DHL is amazing for US. I wish more places offered it, especially for doujinshi since using DHL for them is always cheaper than EMS and sometimes SAL when I order off Mandarake.

This arrived in two days and only for 400 yen shipping, since I had to order stuff off Amazon.JP anyways.

My experience with them is that a signed post-it note on the front door is enough for their proof of delivery.

Maybe you live in a theft land so they are being considerate enough to safeguard your precious plastic.
>>
>>101165637
Where do you live? One time, I was gone when they tried to deliver. An hour after I came home, they called me and asked if anyone was there now so they can drop it off. I was, so they came by in 5 minutes and dropped my package off. Other times, they left it in front of my house after I tell them to on the slips.

Maxwell & Panty go for 6000.Senjougahara is the more expensive one, but surely not enough to justify the difference from $120 for two to $400 for three.

A small discount hardly constitutes a sale, especially on products that are sitting because nobody is buying them. And as >>101167203 pointed out the prices for Milla and Panty are actually lower than I thought. Senjougahara goes for around 16k, so all three together should be about 28k.

I had my keys in the door before I shut it (since it's hard to do after I put my gloves on), then when I shut it, my lanyard thing and all my keychains swung around and got stuck, leading to my husbando's keychain becoming wedged inbetween the handle and the door itself somehow. It also snapped off the ring. It got all bent, but I'm still going to use it. I'm kind of pissed, even though I know it was my own damn fault. At least it was just this one though. I don't use my other ones that I have of him, and I already have this design on a blanket/lap thing, so there's that, I guess.
>>
>>101168802
When you put a key back into a pocket, the keychain part doesn't go in every single time. A lot of people enjoy letting it hang outside to show off. Also women's pockets are tiny, they can't take more the a key or two.

Who said he put it into a pants or breast pocket? He could've put the keychain on a belt, cellphone, or backpack strap, for example. Far more vulnerable. I've had rings snag on doorways and crushed while I was wearing them.

Insert key, unlock door while opening with the last turn and pushing forward, swing around door, insert key on the other side, push it closed and lock it again.

The keychain can (rarely) swing to the outside when that happens and get crushed. I know several people who've broken keychains doing that by accident. After doing it so many times every day you don't really think much about your door lock/unlocking routine.

>>
>>101180214
The basic bath starts out hot (around 45C) and ends tepid (below 30C). I don't know if most people have auto-heated bathtubs or hot tubs in their homes. I personally like my baths hot, so the temperature limitation is going to be a negative aspect of the toy for me.

40C is 104F, which is the max temperature a hot tub can be legally in the US. Your body temperature will overheat after 30 minutes at higher. Baths and showers, however, can be much hotter, because the water mixes with air more and the temperature is set to be maintained at an exact temperature like 40/104. Honestly I wouldn't bring something like that in a hot tub or bath tub, more because of bacteria that exists there.

Than when you have the typical jet nozzles pushing air into a hot tub?

Also, I don't think it would change how heat transfers very much anyways. Maybe it's simply that you're less submerged?

> Honestly I wouldn't bring something like that in a hot tub or bath tub, more because of bacteria that exists there.
The bacteria probably aren't going to attack ABS or anything.

Also, your local water supplier and hot tubs alike use chemicals in small quantities to regulate bacteria.

Either way, I don't think it's too risky...?

>>
>>101183342
And from 8% to 10% next year

>The Democratic Party of Japan came to power in the August 2009 elections with a promise not to raise the consumption tax for four years.[19] The first DPJ prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama was opposed, but Naoto Kan replaced him and called for the consumption tax to be raised. The following prime minister, Yoshihiko Noda "staked his political life" on raising the tax.[20] Despite an internal battle that saw former DPJ leader and co-founder Ichiro Ozawa and many other DPJ diet members vote against the bill and then leave the party; on June 26, 2012, the lower house of the Japanese diet passed a bill to double the tax to 10%.[21]

>Despite considerable opposition and an attempted no-confidence motion from minor opposition parties the bill was successfully passed through the upper house on August 10 2012, so the tax will increase to 8% by April 2014 and 10% by October 2015.[22]

>>101183375
Amazon JP is known for its strangely aggressive discounts for non-moving stock at times.
The GSC Princess of the the Crystal, for example, fell to about 2500 yen, free domestic shipping, at one point. Surely a tremendous bargain for the Japanese. The box size prevented me from committing.
>>
>>101183448
Is that also owed for exported goods, though?

At 10%, some export stores may bother to get a refund for their goods and forward it to customers
>>
>>101183500
>Amazon JP is known for its strangely aggressive discounts for non-moving stock at times.
I know, but:

> non-moving stock
That's *not* going to be Shimakaze, unless GSC produces like 100'000 more than there were pre-orders.
>>
>>101183179
Which is highly unfortunate because there's a few straps I want from them, but they aren't worth the forwarding price.
>>
>>101183577
No it's not, HOWEVER, figures are never meant to leave japan, that's when the "For Sale in japan Only" Bullshit kicks in. You still pay that tax and what Amiami does is not actually raise the base price, but decrease the discount.

The price we get is exactly the same as the Japanese get, except they get a 20% discount plus 5-8% taxes, and we get a 10-12% discount.

Another example would be GSC Ultimate Madoka. Demand was high as hell and supply was even greater. Result was that the figure crashed to about 4500 yen at the lowest point, even though the figure ended up being the top seller of the year for GSC. Similar can happen here, if demand is overestimated despite the incredible popularity.

No, no one will. They still have to pay those taxes since the ones setting the conditions are the manufacturers, not the stores.

Stores are treated as the final user, and they are forced to pay that tax. Anything beyond that point is considered a resale of used goods, even if it's brand new.
>>
>>101183663
I think that Shimacup + pals are going to wind up being consistently produced general audience toys. GSC has to branch out of the otaku niche if they want to grow, and this is a good way for them to get their feet wet.

I'm really liking how this looks but it couldn't hurt to see how the original comes out next month before ordering.

And maybe Madoka was still profitable at half the price. Who knows.

But Madoka had probably 200 other figures out back then, Shimakaze is quite hype and has just 3.

That is pretty silly. And no refunds on export, either?

So... perhaps some manufacturers will just sell their figures from China where they're produced?

How much is shipping for nendro petites generally?

I wanna buy a couple, but want to know how many I can combine for cheapest shipping.

GSC already ships from China, and they charge the tax anyway.

Hell, they don't even add a tiny discount.

So no, we will have to pay more and that'd be it.

>And no refunds on export, either?

There are refunds on exports, except figures are not meant to be exported, since most companies have overseas branches and character copyrights belong to someone completely different in most cases.

It's the easiest way to avoid getting bitched by the government for tax evasion and by overseas license holders.

I was thinking that at 3%, it's not really worth upsetting the Japan-based export stores and so on; most customers won't notice either way.

At 10%... maybe people will notice and purchase somewhere else. But maybe also not. You may very well be right, eh.

> copyrights belong to someone completely different in most cases
Most of the things I bought recently were original artwork-based, or by companies that aren't sub-licensing merchandise rights or such.

But they'll take the pretence anyways, huh.,,

Is it just me, or do AmiAmi charge less for shipping than Mandarake? I just got the invoice for the Hachikuji and Mikasa Nendoroids and they want 20 bucks for EMS shipping. Mandarake wanted nearly that much for only one Nendoroid when I ordered from them a few weeks ago.
>>
What the flying dick nipples. Is there an actual market for things at this price? That keyboard rollin' last entry.
>>
>>101185109
Mandarake also has a $5 handling fee for orders that aren't that expensive so that adds in to it.

Going to make my first purchase on amiami, and I was wondering about the combine order option. Does it mean they will put the products in one box, or just that they will be delivered together?
>>
>>101185925
yes
>>
>>101185925
They're not going to ship out the second box for free if that's what you're asking.
>>
>>101185977
no
>>
>>101185925
Yes, both items would be put into one box if you combine order.

I'm sure she'll sell quite a lot, but people weren't going to stay up on monday for a GSC pre-order.

GSC doesn't usually sell out quickly, either way.
