maggie (2 months ago) #2548159If there is something you really want him to sign other than the shikishi I suggest you bring it. For the USA, he signed 2 things (one shikishi and one other item of your choosing). Since VIZ handed out nice posters many people (myself included) had the poster signed as the second item. However, had I known he would sign ANYTHING as the second item I would have brought the base/s from my Light & Ryuk Griffon figures, which it turns out he would have been happy to sign. I'm still irritated that VIZ said only 1 item and the shikishi only when it wasn't true, but in the end I thank my lucky stars for the interactions I had with him and the shikishi + poster.

I hope we will have some blog posts about it, in the end I am not able to go. :/

maggie (1 day ago) #2757044Another plushie collector!! Wasn't sure we still existed <_<
Hello, and thank you for the friend request! (*´∀`*)ゞ Indeed, we seem to be few and far between, unfortunately. Although with the recent influx of GIFT plushies, they seem to be getting a bit more attention!

maggie (10 days ago) #2720363Hahaha!! Yeah, it's funny, dan was saying how people from LA get cold so easily they hate it in the northeast, and I told him there's always somewhere colder, like Canada!!
As for a perfect Luffy POP... I don't know. POPs aren't always done true to the Oda style but can be glorious despite that. Luffy is one of those guys that just looks better when done by Banpresto. MSP (I don't have the new redone MSP tho I don't like the face changes), marineford IK, and soon the scultures strong world.
Looking through all of my figures, yeah some of the scales are really nice, and I adore them. But mostly I covet my RAHs and Scultures. They usually hit the mark consistently. Luckily one is quite cheap so it balances out the expense of the other!!


Oh, Canadaaaaaa~ -.- :/ lol
You can't deny the quality of SCultures, it's what we always wanted really.
I think he can be done in a scale, it will come soon, I can feel it

maggie (11 days ago) #2710355Hmm that's what I thought. The IK one I definitely don't yearn for the way I used to!! It looks silly now... A bad angle, crazy horrible seams on the neck/collar bone and the wrists are so distracting! The scultures one is great in that sense. I love it to pieces! I guess I won't get the kuji one but damn... Certainly feels strange not snagging it.
And yes, the scultures looks to be drying up at some places, like Rakuten and Mandarake. I still want an extra from somewhere since mine has a slice in his lip :-/


It just goes to show how long OP has been running, the fact that the IK was released around the time Thriller Bark was still on TV, to the updated version we got this year, ,lol. The sculpts and detail now knock it out of the park. The SC has virtually no flaws versus the IK rife with them, due as much in timing as opposed to anything else. But yeah the IK looks smooth and almost cartoonish in a way, the SC is just so good it makes the IK look like crap in comparison, lol

Also Skype date soon~

maggie (12 days ago) #2710229uuurgh need advice. I found the IK nightmare luffy quite by accident for pretty darn cheap, sealed. I'm wondering if I should buy it, but I realize that I like the scultures one so much and it's about the same size as the IK one, so I kind of don't need it anymore. You have both, what do you think?

Had* (I sold the IK one a while ago, lol) both, and if you're talking about the one for 9k, I saw that too. I was going to buy it and then didn't the SCultures one is so much better. Like the piece is impressive and huge don't get me wrong, and you should totally get it in the collecting sense, but if you don't feel you NEED it, then trust me the SCultures suffices. I want to get triples of the SCultures one actually, I just hope I can find it now :/ The IK NM Luffy just has impressive size, the SCultures has way more sharp detail, if the SC was bigger like MSP size, omg it'd be perfect if they re-released it bigger, lol.

The IK is a bit larger and takes up more space than the SCultures one, but the SCultures one is pretty much perfect, lol

maggie (1 month ago) #2587006I'm so confused, nothing has changed on my skype, it still shows you on there! ;A; Is it roge, rogue, rouge?
It's definitely rogue. :( You aren't the only one who went missing on my list and who I seemingly can't receive messages from... weird.

Still haven't reinstalled, been super busy with work. I'll get around to it sometime later roday.

maggie (1 month ago) #2589826Haha yeah I have 4 now :-x I was going to give some to friends but it's too late for Christmas now. I'll probably end up selling them instead. GSC doesn't need you to ship them back, but the figures were not damaged, the boxes were (they was an odd liquid/oil on the box and it was all squishy and discolored even after it dried). GSC won't consider an item damaged if the figure itself wasn't damaged. But, I wanted them as gifts and I couldn't very well gift such a gross box!! So I contacted UPS, the shipping company, and they took the damaged ones back and I opened up a claim (so UPS inspected the items, then would refund GSC, then GSC would re-ship me new ones). The problem was poor communication and documentation between GSC and UPS. Both kept saying they didn't have the right paperwork, or were waiting for papers from the other side. Finally after many months GSC basically said 'phooey' and sent me new ones anyway.

Sorry for the late reply.

4!!! Sounds good. Now you have small army, haha. Maybe you could have retain the damaged box for yourself and gift the good condition set to your friends.

Ya, I recently learnt that if the box (but not the figure) is damaged, GSC will not replace and they will propose you to sort it out with UPS. Having a damaged figure itself is a very bad thing because the packaging box would have been badly squashed. So I guess you took matters in your own hands by getting UPS to make a claim by sending them the damaged boxes? Would UPS compensate the whole set or just the shipping fee? I am just curious.. or they rely on the insurance?

You are lucky that they somehow sorted it out and replaced the boxes and figures...or perhaps they were tired of the situation haha... just kidding XD

maggie (1 month ago) #2582270It's as I said, I ordered 3, but 2 were damaged so I returned them through UPS. UPS and GSC apparently can't communicate so I spent months emailing and calling both trying to push the claim through (which was approved). Eventually GSC just sent me replacements but re-sent me my while order of 3, not just replacements for the 2 that were damaged.
Levi has shipped as of a few day ago and will be here on Friday, I'm hoping they're not damaged!!


Sorry for the misunderstanding. In short GSC sent you 3 figures to replace 2 figures right? Then now you have a total of 4 figures, one of them is the extra free one? Correct?

I had the understanding that GSC doesn't need you to send back the figures for replacements?

Friday is coming. Hope you are getting Levi soon?

maggie (2 months ago) #2570434Ohh no no!! I don't think GSC sent the extra Armin as compensation, but mostly because I had ordered 3 initially but returned 2. I think GSC just looked at my original order and sent the Armins.
For cleaning Levi, mine haven't shipped yet but I'm nervous because of my experience with Armin :-/ WORST LUCK with GSC apparently.


Sorry about this maggie. Now I am confused. You ordered 3 but they only sent you 2. So they had to send you the 3rd one? Hope I got it correct, haha.

Have you contacted them to enquire about the shipment of cleaning levi? I know it will not be easy.

maggie (2 months ago) #2566904Nah I'm sure the other package is going to GSC. I'm just waiting for the disaster that is going to be cleaning Levi. I'll either have rotten luck or good luck.
I'm really glad GSC has good customer service, but I'm rather unhappy with their shipping, especially through UPS in the USA. At this point I should have just bought a Levi at New York Comicon. I don't mind waiting for him, but I want GSC to be more upfront, no ninja'ing cards, and to compensate people somehow (free shipping on your next order, anyone?!). Y'know, to behave like almost every other business.


Oh, is it your birthday? Sorry I missed it. Happy birthday!

So you are saying you got the figma Armin (with one extra, as compensation) but the figma cleaning levi is expected to have another disaster since they are returning to GSC? I thought you said they are going to reship them, with extra back to you too?

I have not heard about GSC shipping issues until recently. Maybe their distributor is sleeping on the job>
