karaya (49 minutes ago) #2420130I stopped ordering figures, but it matched my two criteria i still follow:
#1: From a figure serie i started and intend on finishing
#2: It's Tales!
*Ordered*
Beside it's around my bday IF not delayed, i think i deserve it D:
Btw how is BiJ on pricing / shipping ? I always order from Hobby Search so im curious about other stores :\

BiJ is known to be the less expensive shop for pre-orders, though it's often only a few yens cheaper than AmiAmi. Compared to Hobby Search it's way cheaper though. They charge what they pay as far as shipping goes, so it's basically Japan Post rates. They tend to use no more packing material than needed so you generally don't have bad surprises for the shipping fee, but the way the are packing is still very safe. It's an excellent shop if you ask me, which is very fast and allows both upfront payment or the pay later option. They can also undervalue if needed. Their customer service is rather slow, but usually helpful.

i have used them for maybe a dozen orders in the last year. they don't accept cancellations and if you open a paypal dispute i hear they ban you. their customer service has been non-responsive at times and their website often down for maintenance and buggy--though they've been modifying their site a lot lately.

had some sketchy things happen w/ them that have been reiterated through these blogs.

regarding a preorder issue...they didn't unexpectedly cancel my item like others have said. however, they decided to charge an extra fee for shipping about a week or so after i already had paid in full (including the original shipping charge) citing their original shipping quote was wrong. but the invoice they sent was blank other than the amount to be paid--so i had no idea what it was. they did not even notify me of this until a month after. meanwhile the order status says "payment received" and "waiting return"...w/e that means.

i asked if they would cancel, they said they don't accept cancellations and that they had sent an invoice in the past for more money. i explained that we did not agree to this and that i already paid in full according to their T&C which i cited for them--the sale was complete on my end, and i complained about their lack of communication...so i asked to process a return, they ignored me. i asked if they would combine the shipping with my other preorders, they ignored me. i asked if they would resend me an invoice so i can pay the shipping for them to ship it to me, they ignored me.

so now it's been 6 months since the item was paid for and in stock, and no resolution...yet they took my money (it was an expensive item >15k JPY).

after the fulfillment of the rest of my exclusive pre-orders, i doubt i will ever use them again. i might even renege on these seeing as they reneged on this other contract and their T&Cs. and if they still haven't sent me the item i paid for i will ask paypal to make an exception/extension on their buyer protection policy.

so, to relate it back to your question...your order will most likely be okay. in the less likely event that there is some change in cost to their detriment, they will try to push the cost on to you one way or another (e.g. additional, delayed invoicing, trying to keep your money/item hostage unless you comply by giving them more money...or cancelling your order unless you give them more money).

maybe i've been spoiled by the way major US retailers, AMZN and ebay do business.

silentxangel (2 hours ago) #2419970First of all, I wasn't saying that the changes were being made randomly and without consent. There are legalities of copyrights and whatnot that comes with that territory, so ofc the original sculptor will absolutely have a say to changes. My point was that GK mass production doesn't equate to a significant make over for the figure. As for the changes you've mentioned for other figures, they're so minor that it's probably changes of mutual consent on both the sculptor and company to make the mass production process become cheaper and easier - maybe a few tweaks here and there, but the artist's style is still discernible. Like for example, that Toda Satoshi Saber Extra, definitely not as GK accurate in the eyes area, but a fan can still differentiate that it's a Satoshi sculpt.
What I'm getting from you is that GSC should make a complete face lift for that Sakurako Satsuki. What makes it Sakurako is BECAUSE of the face - more morbid, pale, and maybe haunted in aesthetics. Take that away, then that's not really a Sakurako sculpt anymore. So what's the point of mass producing that GK then? Why not just start from scratch and make a figure, as you say, more "mass market friendly" if collectors and fans don't like this particular Sakurako GK? If so, there's the Phat Company Satsuki that is more a perfect rendition of the canon. That's just my thought...not trying to start anything.

WHOA... I never said she deserved a major facelift, but that you'd think that GSC, like any other company that wants to maximize their profits, would want to make a product that appealed to the largest group of consumer possible - which would be her anime face since that's the most familiar version. Generally the more stylized a personal interpretation is, the more limited the appeal because obviously not everyone would be a fan of it. I was simply stating facts, and saying that this was an unexpected move. NOWHERE was I expressing a personal opinion that her "face should be changed because it's ugly" (in fact I like Iwanaga's style, even if I won't buy this one because I generally prefer a more in-canon appearance for my figures - but her original work is another story!)

I'm sorry you felt like my original comment was antagonizing you in any way, but really I was just trying to make an objective comment about GSC doing something unexpected... @_@?

My parents are totally fine with my collection. My mom loves my collection and usually gets me figures as a birthday/christmas present. But she thinks they're really expensive though XD
My dad likes my collection but isn't really into it as my mom is. He bought me a shelf for them at ikea though! My parents are both collectors of other things so they understand

I'm excited for Tuxedo Kamen, but I hope Bandai also makes Pluto and Chibimoon sooner than later!!! And why can't they make Beryl and the four generals too!? Baddies are cool as figures too!
