SageGuy (2 months ago) #22677787Yea, the price would depend on what you're ordering. I mostly order nendoroids as you could see from my profile. And those are smaller than a lot of scales. Also nope, I've never lost a package thankfully.
Just found this post online. [ext link ]
Guess we are not alone here, waiting endlessly for our package to arrive.
Edit: There's an interesting post there. Apparently, CP is cutting down the manpower to fast up the speed and meanwhile suggesting people (us) to use expensive shipping method so CP can profit more from it. Even so, using a more expensive shipping method doesn't guarantee that it's gonna be fast. It all comes down to which trailer CP choose to do on that day. To put this in another way, our packages could sit there indefinitely. In short, it all comes down to our luck.
That's fxxx-ed up racketeering...
SageGuy (2 months ago) #22671873Yea, I switched to airmail on my latest order. It was only a few dollars more than RSAL, but it arrived in 2 weeks. So I'll probably stick with that for the time being.
I was gonna use Airmail too but then I don't know why, for this package, Airmail costs more than EMS so I chose EMS. And here I am Q.Q
But yeah, I am gonna switch to Airmail for now as well. Used it a few times already with AmiAmi, pretty much they all arrived around 2 weeks. By the way, have you ever lost a package before? Never happened to me, and I hope it never happens.
SageGuy (2 months ago) #22669586I hope it does too. I've only ordered from TOM twice. I've ordered a couple things via EMS from amiami and mandarake earlier this year, and both arrived in under a week. But the longest I've waited for a SAL package, was about a month, when normally that should arrive in about 2 weeks.
This is the first time EMS has taken this long for me. Usually it only takes about a week or even less.
Me too. The longest one I ever waited was a RSAL Package, and that's about a month as well. But that was like 3 to 4 years ago. The waiting time really is ...painful ;-;
SageGuy (2 months ago) #22669204This was over a year ago, so I don't remember how often the tracking got updated, sorry. But if I were to guess, I'd say not often. And everything that I've ordered this year, has just appeared without the tracking being updated.
I see. Thanks a lot! Really hope it would arrive soon.
If you don't mind me asking, so far what's the longest waiting time for them to arrive? Thanks, again.
Sorry if it's a bother but I can't help but ask. Apparently my package shipped in EMS still has no updates of its whereabouts. It has been 16~17 days now since the status stayed at "en route to Canada". Called CP and should've known that's useless.
I was wondering the ones you bought from TOM that took 3 weeks to deliver, Did it get updated frequently or nothing was updated, then all of a sudden they delivered to your place?

Thank You ^^
SageGuy (4 months ago) #21017742Happy birthday friend, may you have a great day.
Thank you for the kind words! :D
Will this fit the kemono nendos?
SageGuy (6 months ago) #18932944I didn't have the money until after release, and I wasn't expecting her to be popular enough to sell out within a month. So I had to pay the after market prices.
I know that feeling. You can't spend money you don't have. Looks like I will probably be joining you in this boat.
SageGuy (6 months ago) #18932476Thank you, I've got a few more of Aoba that I'll be posting soon.
I am regretting not pre-ordering that Nendoroid. Seeing all of these cute pictures of it show me what a great picture opportunity I missed with it. >.<
I just finished browsing through your pictures. They are so cute! :D
SageGuy (6 months ago) #18811334Happy Birthday.
Thank yoou! :)
SageGuy (8 months ago) #17705814It would be difficult enough just to find one for sale, never mind getting the money for one. A lot of these dolls look really great, but are just too much. So I'll stick to nendos and the occasional scale.
Agreed. There'd be no problem if money was no object but to me any figure over 16,000 yen is expensive to say the least. Dolls are on a whole new level.
SageGuy (8 months ago) #17705804Getting the whole birthday set of 9 would be rather expensive. But if you're patient I think you can get them from mandarake for about $100 USD each. And you could even get the preorder bonuses with them. I got my birthday Nozomi there for 7k yen + shipping.
Yeah, I've been keeping an eye on Manda for the last few months and I'm glad to see not all of the girl's prices have spiked up as much as Kotori's birthday figure did (25k yen at one point!). But the entire birthday set is probably not right at the top of my list of figure priorities right now anyway :/.
Thanks for accepting! Awesome collection you have there! :3
SageGuy (8 months ago) #17690066Happy birthday crazy person.

SageGuy (8 months ago) #17325844Greetings fellow manitobian. Nice to see another LL fan so close by.
Hello there. :3
SageGuy (9 months ago) #16599100Happy birthday fellow Nozofriend. Thanks a lot :D
SageGuy (10 months ago) #16173959I see, nice to meet you too. If you didn't notice from my lists, my favorite is Nozomi, followed by Eli and Honoka.
Nice, my best girls are Maki, Hanayo, and Honoka...I'm super hyped about Alter Hanayo and Honoka coming out! I see you like nendoroids though, personally I have one nendoroid, but I haven't unboxed her because I'm afraid of all the little pieces getting lost/damaged. I'm sure they're lots of fun to pose though! I wanted a Kirby nendoroid but they've pretty much all sold out everywhere I've looked! Oh well.
SageGuy (10 months ago) #16133100Greetings friend.
Hello, I was just friending fellow idol lovers, nice to meet you :)
