youth (2 days ago) #15021473I finally did get a reply on my 3rd try contacting this time using the web form again. I used a different email this time & they said they replied earlier, but I don't see it so their mail to att.net/yahoo mail may be getting blocked/discarded.

that sounds about right. that was slightly similar to what had happened to me, i sent out about 3 emails as well. ;_; glad they got back to you though, good luck!

oiwa (8 days ago) #14883666i don't have too much experience with goodsmile store, but, in my experience, it took them quite a while to reply whenever i did need to contact them, but i can't speak for other people's experiences. i hope it works out for you!

Are photos with an e2046 stamp on them allowed if no other option is available?

theyasminshow (5 days ago) #14936843For released items the best tip I can give is to look the item up on Hobby Search or Plamoya, they list the item weight in grams (plus, Plamoya will give a shipping estimate for that single item, HS will give the shipping if it's in stock and you run it through checkout). Anyway, you're looking at 1.22kg + 0.14kg + 0.8kg + shipping carton/packing material (I would add at LEAST 0.5kg for that. I weighed a medium H-B4 AmiAmi box and it was just over a pound, empty!) I'd say you're looking at at least ¥5480 EMS based on [ext link ]
But it may be more depending on box size and how much packing material they use. Hope that helps.


Ah so just about $60 on the generous side. I thought it'd be something more outrageous. Well suppose it could be if crazy packaging happens. Thank you though that gives me peace of mind even if it's just an educated guess. I'm used to buying single nendos via RSAL once a month at best so I expected like 80 specially since the estimated time of delivery was a little over a week rather than a whole month like I'm used to.

PeanutButter (6 days ago) #14934802Uh I'm sure a question like this has been asked before but I've never bought anything in bulk for amiami before and I'm wondering what kind of shipping to expect to pay. It's item #198363 item #429205 and the entire vocaloid renewal box set. Shipping via EMS to the US.
I can pay and all but I'd still like to know a ballpark estimate so I'm not completely floored by the price when the time comes to pay. The lack of knowledge for the weight of the figma and the petites is what preventing me from using the chart effectively. It just has to be over $40 but just how much over 40 is the question basically.
Thanks in advance!

Yanderechii (7 days ago) #14900005Hey! welcome :)
I've used Solaris many times when I started out collecting and never had any problems! They are very 'safe' and communicative so I'm sure your figure will be fine. I used Saver once or twice I think and I didn't notice any change from when it comes by air. It's very rare that your figures will come home broken, never happened to me aniway. PVC is pretty tough, The only figures that tend to break when transport are Coldcast. Though the box might come home broken or wet if it's a storm outside or your postman was careless.. but there's nothing they can do as far as I know for the box. Amiami so far has been the best place I've bought from in term of Package protection and Solaris comes second.
Very unlikely as I said, all of my experiences with Solaris have been good and I really like them (although I don't buy from them anymore since Amiami is cheaper).
good luck ! ^^


Thanks for your quick reply!
I wouldn't be worried if my figure was coming by Air (SAL or Airmail or anything else) but it's coming by Seamail. I know Sea is a lot more rough mainly because it's coming on a boat. That's the main reason I'm nervous, I've never gotten anything by Seamail and I don't know what to expect.

moonstarfc (7 days ago) #14899987Hi everyone, I'm totally new to MFC, I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, but I'm panicking about my most recent order.
I asked my parents to buy this figure for me for Christmas, a used figure, from Solaris Japan.
I picked "saver" shipping, which was about $20. The "Express" shipping was $50, and no way would my parents pay that much for shipping.
Now, I assumed the "saver" shipping would be SAL, but turns out that wasn't the case. I got an email saying that my order would be shipped by Sea. It shipped out before I could say anything about it, but like I said, that upgrade to EMS was just too expensive. I've bought lots of stuff from Japan but never had anything shipped by sea, so I don't know if I seriously screwed up here or not. Is my figure going to be broken beyond repair? Should I get ready to file an insurance claim as soon as it arrives.... in 4-8 weeks -_-
