About

Hi, I bought my first figure (item #246278) at Dutch Comic Con. After I got my Attack on Titan figures (first Levi and Eren, who were cheap, and then I though: "I need a Mikasa and I suppose I can buy one more expensive figure..." yeah I didn't stop at one as you can see) I kinda fell into scale hell hole and now I focus on scales.

I like scale figures that have cool outfits with only one or two main colours in it, blue is my favourite colour but I also like red. My favourite scale is probably 1/7. I really like Fate but my all-time favourite anime is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Other favourites of mine are Kill la Kill, Steins;Gate, Pokémon, Magi, Shingeki no Kyojin and Arslan Senki.

My collection rules:
View spoilerHide spoiler - No more than 1 figure per character (except for Saberr in different outfits and ma boi Ed Elric - oh right and maybe Archer... what was this rule for again??)
- No figures over 150 euro (incl shipping and customs) 'cause I don't wanna become poor ._. (yeah gonna break this one prolly)(broke it thrice already)
- No action figures


Figures I wish they'd make:
View spoilerHide spoiler - BRAVE-ACT Mikasa though I already have a Mikasa so I wouldn't get it anyway
- More scale figures of Matoi Ryuuko and Satsuki in her normal Senketsu godrobe (I don't like the Phat company ones)
- More scale figures of Edward Elric or FMA in general bless you Kotobukiya
- Magi Djinn equip scales!!
- Scales of servants other than Saber. Please give us Gilgamesh/Lancer/Rider/Caster etc ;_;

Josine (19 minutes ago) #19228218If I were to not undervalue my packages, customs would hit me and I would pay 21% of what I paid (items worth + shipping) and if the value is above 150 euros, I pay 4% extra over the items value (without shipping). That doesn't sound very different from what you are telling me about the UK I think. What would make custom charges in the UK more expensive from the rest of Europe?

I edited my post on the page. Here is what I wrote:

For further insight. Add the 20% customs charge to the price of the figure as well as the shipping, which is then dependent on the shipping method used. Then the minimum of 2.5% customs duty on top of it. And in my experience importing from Japan, the customs duty for figures and statues have varied between 5% and 10%, which they judge when they have the item in customs.


From Nippon-Yasan I am paying £158 with EMS shipping, 20% on top of that is £31.6 and that's without the customs duty which is a minimum of 2.5%, so for arguments sake say they judge it for the minimum, then the 2.5% adds £3.95 which then would total £193.55. Choosing a different shipping method is an option, but it doesn't reduce it by more than £10 on average. And these calculations are if the customs duty is 'only' 2.5%.

The £ got royally screwed when Brexit happened and has been recuperating slowly. But overall, customs charges have always been unpleasant here.



-----------------


Retailers are not allowed to undervalue in the UK, therefore you can't consider that Nippon-Yasan undervalues for personal customers.

Josine (6 days ago) #19072264Hey, how's your collection coming along? Found a more cohesive look for your detolfs yet? ^^

I got a lot more new figures, and I'm lacking space so they're a bit crammed now :V

I'm going to be setting up my 3rd detolf today and arranging things around. I've got some decent ideas of how to arrange them and the lack of clutter should make it look real nice. Think I'm going to hold off on risers for a bit more, I wanna get a better idea of how my pre-ordered ones will fit in before I decide which ones I want to lift up.

Thanks for asking :)
