Figure Site and Shop ForumFigure Site and Shop ForumThis club is for discussion and shop & site related questions.

Hi I started this club so that people could discuss the shops and sites they use to buy figures. Please add a new discussion for the shop/site you want to talk about since it will make it easier for other people to find information on this shop/site in the future.

Please leave appropriate feedback for stores here:

This club is dedicated to web based anime/figure ...ect shops for physical ("brick and mortar") stores please visit Local Shopping Guides

Update: We are updating/editing all first posts on threads to provide more uniform/detailed information on each entry featured and removing the poll section as feedback can now be left for each shop in our MFC shop section. (mfc link)

Has anyone tried DeJapan as a proxy? They put up a guide on ordering from the GSC facemaker site and how to forward to them. Seems like they don't charge agent fee, which is actually scary to me? LOL All the google results are sponsored reviews, which I don't trust either.

I'm a bit late but I've just received two figures from them and had no problem. The communication was good and regular (you can ask questions anytime and usually get an answer within two days) and the package well done.
There also are several means of payment and you can gather different orders for shipping.

Sekhmet (9 days ago) #27014682Well thankfully they got the package and there seems to be no damage, at least they didn't say there was any. They said they will be re-shipping it soon, hopefully I don't have to wait another 40 days to get it. I'm still going to try and get my shipping refunded from the USPS. There was no reason for it to get to NY then go past my state and back again only to get returned to Japan without any attempted delivery -___-

I'll be wishing you luck!! Hopefully they will refund you ; v; At least it got to the proxy safely!

agentmozell (12 days ago) #26906091That I wouldn't know. You could ask your proxy to check and take photos? I hear some are okay with doing that. As for any sort of refund I've no idea. You'll just have to wait and see if there are any damages.

Sekhmet (12 days ago) #26905043That sounds like such a mess v_v I did indeed let my proxy know what happened and they said they would let me know when the package arrives to them but I'm worried if it will ever get to them. The strange thing is though is that it got mailed out on the same day as another package, also RSAL, from the same place of course but that package already got to me. This one however got held up for whatever reason. I'm actually super pissed because its a very rare and old poster that I was really excited to get. But I can't really explain what happened other than just posting the tracking status. I live in VA and this is the BS with the package, read from the bottom up;

I mean, I don't even know what happened since it never even made it to my state. If it does make it back to my proxy I will EMS it this time but of course I am sure it is damaged. Can I make a claim and get my money back for the shipping? I don't really know what to do or if my proxy can try to get it more quickly. I'm just so upset and worried, I've never had this happen before v_v


That I wouldn't know. You could ask your proxy to check and take photos? I hear some are okay with doing that. As for any sort of refund I've no idea. You'll just have to wait and see if there are any damages.

agentmozell (12 days ago) #26903627This happened to a friend of mine with an order from Hobby Search. She contacted them and they resent the package without any additional shipping charges. I'm unsure how many times they do that since for her it only happened once. I've heard of AmiAmi charging shipping again.
As for personal experience its only happened with sellers within the US and they just took it back and showed them what happened with the tracking (one time a package got all the way to me in TX then three hours later wound up on the sellers porch in CA and we were both confused) and USPS just resent it without any charge.
Since this is overseas I'm assuming you may get asked for shipping again, depending on the shop. I would contact them as soon as you can.

Sekhmet (12 days ago) #26903611Is there anywhere to post about shipping questions not specific to a shop? Or rather shipping help? My package got returned to sender in Japan after being labeled "undeliverable" but the thing is it never even got to my state, so I don't know how it could be undeliverable if they never even attempted to deliver it.
