Six packages at once, heaven!Six packages at once, heaven!

Hello again MFC,

So, yesterday I've ranted about my journey of hell at the post office (thank you so much for readers selection!). As I don't want to leave a bad taste in your mouth, I wanted to share the good(s) that came out of that experience. Yes, it's the promised loot post! And my first actually X3

So, yesterday I went to the post office to pick up my packages. There were six packages in total, with an overall of ten figures inside them. I approached the old hag when my turn arrived, and gave her a list of six tracking numbers. I wondered whether she'd snap, and indeed she was very pissed, to do the job she is paid for to do. She actually told me (quote): "Start reducing your number of orders, you're making me work too much". It took me some time to get all of my packages, but I finally got them and returned home.

First I towered my packages on the sofa at the living room, hoping my stupid cat will act out. I see all of the posts here about people's cats coming to snoop around when they bring new stuff, and I'm jealous! However, Krembo was too stupid to try something. So I took him and put him on the boxes to see what'll happen. Nothing. Lazy lousy cat! It looked like that:

He then meow at me and left. Never mind. Here are the boxes:

Some of Mandarake's boxes got really squashed, I really cringed at the post office when I saw that. Naturally, I addressed the most squeezed box first:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443157240.jpeg

Inside it were ITEM #220175, ITEM #78385, and ITEM #95828:

Luckily, only the prize figure's box was heavily damaged:

After some pressing it was good as new:

The next Mandarake box was slightly damaged:

Fortunately, ITEM #45759 was intact:

Note to myself: be more cautioushidehttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443157671.jpeg
when handling kitchen knives to open shipping boxes.

The last thing from Mandarake was kind of an impulse buying due to Moe points being pressed, and me trying to fill a small packet box - it's ITEM #167312:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443158204.jpeg

Now let us move forward to the Jungle package. It's actually an item I once saw at AmiAmi at B/B rating, and waited forever for it to appear at A/B, until I thought of searching at Jungle, and they had like five of them! It's the super healthy Mao, ITEM #124:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443158206.jpeg

And now... The two AmiAmi boxes. One of them was something I was really waiting for, while the other was the Persona 4 box for which I've set sail for a crusade at the post office, as described in here.

Starting with the most awaited one, it's ITEM #206806:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443158210.jpeg

A man can only handle a limited amount of Moe points being pressed simultaneously, and this Suguha is a pure goddess! Utterly gorgeous! *___* When I saw her one day at AmiAmi goes for 12.5K I it took me only 5 minutes to order her, and it took so long only because I've forced myself to check other places for possible cheaper prices. It's really a shame that I've missed the original pre-orders, she was 8K then... ;_; But most importantly, she's mine now! :)))

Finally, we have the Persona 4 package with ITEM #104131, ITEM #111000, and ITEM #251436:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/SengokuGensui1443158212.jpeg

Unfortunately, customs have reached into my wallet with the two AmiAmi packages, for a total of 4400 yen for both ><

And that's my loot post! Here's all the gang together:

The empty shipping boxes:

And of course, how can we do without... opening the figures' boxes!

All that's left is to distribute them to the different shelves.
I hope you enjoyed the reading as much as I enjoyed the unboxing :P
Thanks for reading!
Cheers,
SG.

So many cute figures here, I love it!! That Kuroneko is probably my favourite figure of her, I really need to get my hands on it.

Seiidaishougun (4 years ago) #3643793There's a splint on one hand of her shirt and a hole on the other, so you should be able to unbutton it. Perhaps it may need a little convincing ;)
The shirt of my Saya ITEM #28911 also needed a little convincing to be removed, I had to open up the seams XD
You can find the resulting photos here: BLOG #22107


Thanks, I'll give it a try

Alchemeister (4 years ago) #3634857Nice tastes ^~^

Haha thanks :3

Zarathustra (4 years ago) #3634889I guess no one knows what fragile means anymore... Great buys though I love the suguha is great one of my favorites.

Indeed and indeed ^^

Seiidaishougun (4 years ago) #3635262Nice figures :D
Can you cast-off (or at least open) Ruri's shirt? ITEM #167312
Nice try with Suguha ITEM #206806, but her swimsuit is still way too lame.
rofl XD
Packages like PICTURE #1380810 are actually quite common in the US, which comes at no surprise, since they're handled like this:
www.youtube.com...
That rough package handling is well known, and it's the main reason AmiAmi is using their bullet-stopping packaging overkill.
At least in Canada, they try to do something about it:
www.youtube.com...


Well it's made of some super soft bendable plastic, but I didn't actually try opening it. However, there's a picture of her half shirtless PICTURE #1087081, so maybe it's possible...
And LOL that video! O: FedEx sure knows how to handle packages...

SShirokaze (4 years ago) #3626574How about no one orders anymore anything, and you are out of job? Seriously, wtf country is this! Bitter old hag, trying to make others bitter as her ugly old ass -_-
Now you gotta go to the beach or a pool to take proper pics of your ladies~


lol I'm never able to get with a proper line like that on the spot! But TBH, I'm actually think she might abuse my packages next time if I'll be to sassy... O:
The beach, now that's an idea!

Ose_93 (4 years ago) #3628749This made me chuckle. I kinda wish my cat wasn't into boxes at times. Sure it's cute when I empty out a box because he sits inside of it, but sometimes I'm opening a box up and he gets too close. I haven't nicked him, but box cutters can be dangerous so he shouldn't be sniffing around when I have one on hand.
I also do DIY projects with cardboard from shipping boxes and sometimes the little buggers sit on the material...
Anyway, shame about customs and the boxes, but great loot! Those Persona figures are sooo lovely. I need me a Chie. ♥


I know right? It's so adorable well they sit inside of something! X3 My cat rarely do such stuff, he might be broken or something...
And yes, Chie is the best! Why are all of her figures so expensive though? 5.2K for a BQ... 15K for a high priestess... MIA wallet...

victorviper (4 years ago) #3616074Posts like these give me a new appreciation for the United States Postal Service.
I see you got the limited Kuroko Shirai figure with the special faceplate. This reminds me how I need to get that figure, as that so perfectly captures Kuroko's personality.


Indeed, and also to the US no customs (on figures) policy!
Yes, she is right? Got her from Manda for 5K unopened, there's an B/B one at Ami last time I've checked though, if you're interested. I'm planning to get Misaka as well and place them in a way it'll look that Kuroko's chasing her :P

NikhilR (4 years ago) #3626103I like your taste in loli's. :D

Thank you! P:

4Arnd (4 years ago) #3615993Thumbs up for Azuka's survival. That box was really beat up. And lucky, only two out of six got charged. :-)

Asuka sends her thanks (;
Actually, it's not much of a luck, it's simply that in my country if you order goods up to 75 USD you don't pay customs. The two other boxes where above 75 USD. Actually, up until some time ago most of the SAL packages were skipping charge even if the value exceeded 75 USD. But in the past few months I've gotten a 100% capturing rate!! >< ;; T___T (for packages above 75 uSD) I don't know what the did in customs to pull that up, but it's a real pain in the ass...

Fukawa (4 years ago) #3616002Good that none of the figurines where harmed :D Shipping can truly be really scary sometimes (especially with taxes!).. Congrats on completing your P4 beach Queen Collection by the way ~

Thanks! I find them very pretty. I'm planning to get the Persona 4 Megahouse High Priestess line next, already ordered Chie! Killed my wallet though... \:
