Pre-Owned AmiAmi Grab Box For Girls (S) - First AmiAmi purchase!Pre-Owned AmiAmi Grab Box For Girls (S) - First AmiAmi purchase!

MacavyMacavy3 years agoLoot
I snagged one of these around a week ago and it arrived today!
Say hello to my first Ami Ami purchase!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447712675.jpeg

I'm shocked, honestly, since everyone was getting delays I expected it to arrive in a month with unregistered SAL. I got a 'small' one but in my opinion it's pretty big. Measures 12x10x8 inches.

The lighting is going to be a bit weird because I opened half in my kitchen trying to indulge a friend who really wanted to see what was inside before having to leave for school. Anyway, on to the loot!

First layer (they pack really well btw):
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713068.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447712677.jpeg

AmiAmi's famous little card, and what appears to be a notepad with envelopes. I recognize the character in the corner but don't know what series he's from. Regardless it's really nice.

Second layer:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447712679.jpeg

I recognize this! It's a Kuroko no Basuket hat for the Yosen team. I think it's meant to be for the guy with purple hair that eats a lot of junk food? I only saw up to season two, lol. The tag says it was 3500 but I don't know if I want to believe that because there's no way someone would pay that much for a hat . . . right?
It's a little big, but since we're getting into the cold weather it may have arrived just in time.

The thing next to it is some kind of book cover?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713431.jpeg

I like the design and how thick the cloth is, although I have no idea what series it's from (the guy looks familiar buut?). It seems like the perfect size for the average manga book but I don't know if I see myself ever using it.

Third layer:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713072.jpeg

Some clips unopened (or something) from different series, the only one I recognize being Prince of Tennis and Tales. I only opened one because I had no idea what it was, but I'm not really a fan of these types of pins so I don't see myself keeping them.

Fourth Layer:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447712681.jpeg

An unopened Persona 4 blind box for a HUGE strap and a stand thing of a character from Yowamushi Pedal. With my luck I wasn't surprised to get the least appealing character on the list, lol.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713242.jpeg

Probably not gonna keep these either. Next!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713244.jpeg

I saw someone else get these and was really interested. They're desk boxes featuring characters from Uta no Prince-sama and they're totally new and gorgeous. I don't know if I'll need all four, though. My desk is madness and can't really handle more stuff, lol.
This is what they look like in action for anyone interested:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447716050.jpeg

Perfect size for a Death Note and some novels, mini sketchbooks, and maybe A5 size doujinshi, but nothing bigger. I may not keep all three, but it's cool they sent all of them anyway so a fan won't have to choose.
I own one of these storage cubes with four square sections and feel like they'd be perfect for it.

Fifth Layer:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713066.jpeg

Woah, lots of mini stuff!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713238.jpeg

First we have one of those giant acrylic keychains of a character from Uta no Prince-sama. I haven't watched the series but he looks nice.
Also one of those pass-holder things that I believe are used for suit cases featuring Psycho-Pass. I watched the first season of this series but don't know who the guy is, and I don't travel so I can't see myself ever needing this. But cute!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713340.jpeg

I have no idea who the characters/series are for the first two. One is a pin and the other an acrylic keychain thing. Also Rin booksmarks. I love bookmarks and I love Free! but Rin is my least favorite (not favorite at all, actually). Makes sense I got him lol.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713342.jpeg

The guy on that button looks familiar but I don't think I know what the series is. Beautiful artwork, though. Also an unopened blind box for - once again, lol - Uta no Prince-sama. According to the box I got Ranmaru. He looks cute!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713344.jpeg

A shirt-shaped magnetic bookmark (?) featuring some guy from Yowamushi Pedal. Even though I have no idea who he is the bookmark itself is pretty cool.
I also got really excited when I saw Defense Club Love! on the tag of the package the button was in, only to be disappointed I got my least favorite character again, lol.

Sixth Layer:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713070.jpeg

Figure boxes! One from Free!, Yowamushi Pedal, and I think the last one is Captain Harlock? How retro.
Let's see what I got. Free! is first. Please don't be Rin please don't be Rin please don't be Rin

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713437.jpeg

Nagisa! Will look to see if anyone wants to trade for a Makoto or Haruka before deciding to keep him, but I'm really happy that I got him.

Next: Yowamushi Pedal

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713433.jpeg

The main guy, yes? Cup accessories are always funny. Don't know if I want to keep him, though, since I have no attachment to the series.

Captain Harlock Galaxy Express 999 Part 2 (according to the box.) This one was already opened, but the figure inside was sealed new. I got . . .

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713435.jpeg

Captain Harlock himself! ITEM #29075 This figure looks really good, and I'm tempted to keep him. I'll need to watch the series before deciding. As cool as he looks, my shelves only have room for those I dearly care for.

Last but not least:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447713346.jpeg

At first I thought it was a desk mat but it's a Fate/stay night card playing mat. I have not watched this series so if I end up keeping it it'll just be for a desk mat since I don't play card games.

Full Loot (or I tried, anyway)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Macavy1447714076.jpeg

Overall, I loved this experience. I know it seems like I was really negative about what I got, but despite not liking something opening it up was fun. I admit they are a risk. Obviously, I didn't care for much of what I got because I didn't watch many of the series. If you're only into series you watch these are not for you but I think it's a welcome little surprise to have now and again, especially for the price.

Box: 1,980 JPY
Shipping: 1,880 JPY
Total: 3,860 JPY


Around 30 USD. To me, that's not a bad deal at all. I hope to snag another one of these in the future.
If anyone is interested in anything seen above send me a PM. I don't think I'm going to keep most of it, lol.

Macavy (3 years ago) #5094005It's more than I was expecting, albeit there aren't that many sellers to begin with
auctions.search...
There's one listing being actively bid on which I'm going to keep an eye on just to see what people are paying for him.
As for the grab boxes, there were a couple of them being sold yesterday but they sold out quick. If it makes you feel any better they have a limit on how many you can buy, so if anything it's a one-time thing for fun. AmiAmi will be the policeman of that ,lol.
WOAH that's a lot!

Yeah, I think I've come across them being in stock once? I kind of briefly thought about it. I love opening grab bags/boxes but there are other things I'd much prefer to have at the moment so I'll be saving my pennies for now >w<. At least enough people here are kind enough to document their boxes for everyone else to enjoy. So far about the only thing I've really wanted out of them was Harlock and a couple of the cute Fate/ and Gugure! Kokkuri-san charms that I've seen people get.
Oh really? I thought a few people here had gotten more than one, albeit over a period of time. That's AmiAmi for you!

elagabalus (3 years ago) #5093860I don't know how much he goes for on auction, is it a lot? The box/packaging was totally unopened, right? I guess somebody just thought "lol it's from an older series, we'll just throw it in."
No matter what happened, you lucked out! You make me wanna try my hand at a preowned blind box now.

Macavy (3 years ago) #5045956I finally did some research on him and am really shocked at what he goes for on J Auctions. How the heck did this not get re-sold by AmiAmi? I feel like it was a blunder on an employee's part to include it, lol.I don't know how much he goes for on auction, is it a lot? The box/packaging was totally unopened, right?

elagabalus (3 years ago) #4766530Yup, that's why I'm so jealous that you managed to get him! He's something I'd never expect to see in a grab box like this?
I almost wanna email Amiami and see if they have any extras of him lying around! >w<

Macavy (3 years ago) #4766513Storage stuff is great. I've maxed out the room I have to use them, though. Still really pretty.
Thanks! Good to know what I got seems good to others, lol.
Always nice to try both. Personally, the girl boxes generally have stuff I'd be interested compared to the boy ones. The boy ones sell out rather fans, though.
So much praise for this Anime!


Barakamon is fantastic. It's literally one of my top animes! Do give it a watch :D

elagabalus (3 years ago) #4747217WOAH, I'm so jealous of that Harlock figure! Him alone was pretty much worth what you paid (IMO), and then you got a bunch of other stuff on top of it! Congrats!!!Really? : o I looked him up and he's old, so I'm really surprised that he came in the box. I'm reluctant to open him up, lol.

adrikyn (3 years ago) #4760770The price for the hat seems right to me haha. I bought a Hellsing beanie for about the price from AmiAmi...
Ouch. D: As nice as it feels I can't ever see myself spending that much for it.

Necroid_Neko (3 years ago) #4764863The notepad thing in the 2nd/3rd photo is from Hoozuki no Reitetsu ENCYCLOPEDIA #41106, it's a fairly funny show

Ah, I knew i'd seen the guy before! Thank you for telling me.

tadtad (3 years ago) #4766500How did you manage to get the box?
AmiAmi has them for sale on their site every now and then.They sell out fast, so you just have to search 'grab box' on there every now and then and hope they're still in stock.

Muntoe (3 years ago) #4746750That's quite a bit for a small loot box O_o I kind of like those Prince-sama desk boxes are pretty nice, I always like storage stuff like that. ^^ Thanks for posting.Storage stuff is great. I've maxed out the room I have to use them, though. Still really pretty.

einonymous (3 years ago) #4746829Great loot! You've had one of the best ones I've seen :-)
Thanks! Good to know what I got seems good to others, lol.

damedanbo (3 years ago) #4746852Not bad for a small box! That Yowapeda stuff is so cute... It makes me want to try a Girl's box next time the opportunity arises to buy one. ^^
Always nice to try both. Personally, the girl boxes generally have stuff I'd be interested compared to the boy ones. The boy ones sell out rather fans, though.

Emerian (3 years ago) #4747090I don't know many of the series you got but I do love the Barakamon bookcover! The anime is great and the item itself is really cool.
So much praise for this Anime!
