Is there anyone offering a proxy service for the upcoming WonFest Winter 2018? There's a garage kit I really want, but I can't attend myself...

Im considering going to wonfes on my trip to japan.. august if we manage if not, winter.

Any advice?
How long should i wait in line?
Any preparations I need to make? I was thinking about a parasol, sunblock and a blanket..
Do any of em understand english.. i may need some basic japanese perhaps?

Or might it be better to start with a small convention like treasurefest?

Coffee (1 year ago) #12810798I sent an email to From Japan asking for their fees for picking up items at events and got:
"Basic fee: 5000 yen
Hourly fee: 2000 yen
Transportation fee

Please kindly note that in case we can't get the item, as long
as we visit the item location the fees will be charged regardless
of whether we are able to obtain the item(s) or not (in the case
that an item is sold out, etc.)."

I'm still not sure whether or not I want something, but I think making a group order via FJ could be a decent choice for buying things from WonFes.


Just a note, I've used them in the past around 2 years ago (I think? Time escapes me anymore) and they're pretty terrible. :( Unreliable pickup services are the whole reason I found my own proxy/deputy service. It's a lot more expensive, but honestly it's a lot more reliable too! For some perspective:

I had them try and get 3 kits for me, one person. They got none of them.

Doing a group order for this would be pretty much impossible, because how are you going to decide which person's kits are "more important", because the lower down on the list the more likely chance you are of getting the kit. (This is true even with my own proxy, but I'm able to work with the people joining me and we all come to an agreement regarding it.)

I just want to let people know to be wary of this sort of thing, because FJ's "collection service" kind of sucks in general, I've heard other stories from people as well, not just involving things like WonFes.

The-Hurricane (1 year ago) #12399143Alright, not a problem! :) I'm not familiar with Chino myself so I'm not very good at helping in this instance, but I do give instructions on how to peruse the upcoming kits for WonFes in my forum post. :D Maybe I'll take a look around and see if I can spot any stuff with her in it.

Not really looking for a GK, just if they surprise release an exclusive figure like they did last year. Have to be prepared since I need to own every Chino figure :P.
