How to pre-order Myethos MikuHow to pre-order Myethos MikuTutorial

Disclaimer : As of 09/09 she is pretty much confirmed to be China exclusive, situation is unlikely to change in the future. Pre-orders close on 31/10 so please be careful to not miss the deadline.


Here is a small guide I've compiled with all the users comments on how to pre-order ITEM #998271, since there are a lot of users who keep asking the same questions and keep getting lost due to how fast the comment section moves, I thought it would be easier to gather all the informations in one place to keep track of the content.

Please tell me right away if I've missed any information or mispread some informations, I wouldn't want to misguide any user



First of all, before looking up for a proxy, check if you actually need one :

Countries from this list will NOT need a proxy as Taobao have a domestic direct shipping option :
Hong Kong
Macau
Taiwan
Malaysia
Singapore
Australia


Making a Taobao account is pretty simple, however you WILL need to have your phone nearby since they pretty much send you a notification code every 10 minutes due to security matters. Confirm your mail as well in case you lose your phone one day, as it's very hard to get a taobao account back.

For residents of those countries, you will just have to pick the figure from the Myethos shop (item.taobao.com...), add in cart, put your address, pick a shipping option (do NOT pick the forwarding option, as there were a lot of reports of damaged packages, pick the domestic shipping option as it's generally safer and much faster, it will be written as 直送), confirm and place the order, pay with Alipay (works with any credit cards with an extra fee of 3%, for Malaysian residents the fees will be 1.5%) Please notice that this is the official Myethos' shop, therefore it does not come with any sort of bonus items.

Be careful : once the item releases you'll get a notification which tells you to pay, please be careful to the deadline of 2 weeks as they won't fullfill your order or give you the money back once past that deadline.

For those who reside in those countries and want the bonus items, here are the links and the procedure :

- Acrylic Display Case for only one extra RMB :
item.taobao.com...
The first 3 categories don't matter as they're already pre-checked for you, however the first option means paying the deposit of 150 RMB + get the rights to buy the acrylic display case for 1RMB (预付定金150元(预定+1元即可购买韶华亚克力展示盒)), second option means pay the total amount right now + get the rights to buy the acrylic display case for 1RMB (预付全款(预定+1元即可购买韶华亚克力展示盒)) and third option is paying the deposit cheaper, 120 RMB instead of 150RMB, not sure what the purpose is plus you'll need to contact the taobao seller, which means you'll need to be fluent in chinese. You will not need to bother with the 3rd option.

Once you've added her in the cart, follow the same procedure as above and you'll have her ordered.

Here is the acrylic display box link : item.taobao.com...
Same for above, ignore the first 2 boxes as they are pre-checked : check the 仅限预定过韶华的客户选这里 box AND the 预付全款1元(一名额限一个)box (one box limited per order). Place the order of 1RMB and pick 自行联系卖家发货 as the shipping option, as you won't need to pay shipping for it since it comes with the figure. Place the order and you're ready to go.

Notice : some banks will NOT accept any order inferior or equal to 1RMB, if this problem happens to you please contact the store through the Aliwangwang application, they will change the invoice to 2RMB and you'll need to remind them to take an extra RMB out of the final order next June.

- Life-sized fan :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, however be aware that deposit is not available and you will have to pay the full amount directly.

- A3 wallscroll :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, pick between 预定(没拍先拍这里)(300RMB deposit) and 预定全款(没拍先行拍这里) to pay the full price. Do NOT pick 先行补定金/先行预定全款 as you won't be guaranteed to get any in stock.

- Wall scroll based on the original ASK illustration :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, please pick the deposit option for 100RMB (预定) and NOT 先行补交定金优惠39元,拍错无效, as it isn't 100% guaranteed that you will get a pre-order slot.

- Screen :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, pick either the 99RMB deposit(定金99元,21年6月发售) or 79RMB deposit (补定金79元,21年6月发售) - however I recommend picking the 99RMB deposit -, click on 总价999元包邮,赠店铺特典屏风,限时尾款减39元 and place the order. The 9999RMB listing is just a reference for the case next to 总价999元包邮,赠店铺特典屏风,限时尾款减39元 (a prototype picture of the screen is shown).

For those who want the fan or the wall scroll or the screen display AND the box (you cannot pick the 4 or any other combination together), you'll have no choice but to pick the 180RMB option on the acrylic box listing, so the second link (预定总价180元,非偏远地区包邮) and the shipping for it, or put a deposit for the acrylic case (预付定金30元), even though I recommend paying directly the whole price as it will be very troublesome and your bank will charge you with fees twice instead of once.

Please notice that you'll have 20 days to confirm the order once you place and pay it, go to 已买到的宝贝 on the top bar, then click on 确认收货 on the right. You can do it manually or let taobao confirm it 20 days later, however it's better to do it by yourself.


I've noticed a lot of people using Amazon JP (www.amazon.co.j...), please be aware that the prices are inflated and 21k JPY is around 1355RMB when the taobao listing is 999RMB (both are without shipping and proxy fees).

Some useful links : www.howtotao.co..., for general non-specific taobao orders, it has a section where it details which countries accept the forwarding service and which doesn't, however PLEASE USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK, as the packaging is extremely minimal (non-existent) and the delays are horrible because of the pandemic. You wouldn't want to receive a partially destroyed box and a figure whose missing its head just because you didn't use a proxy.

Here is a list of taobao proxies (just the names and links, no further information on how they work yet, however the sites are in english so it shouldn't be a problem):

Superbuy (www.superbuy.co...)
Wegobuy (www.wegobuy.com...)
Bhiner (www.bhiner.com/)
CssBuy (www.cssbuy.com/)
Basetao (www.basetao.com...)
Yoybuy (www.yoybuy.com/...)


Each sites have their own fees and shipping calculator, please refer to them. Most of these sites will open your package to inspect on the content, if you do not wish so please write them a notice. Notice that some sites might ask for identification when paying directly, adding funds instead would be a great way to avoid it.


Please DM me if you want to contribute on the proxy part or have any other question, or need help with chinese reading/texting a taobao agent through their stores.

I'm trying to order the figure and some of the bonuses but I'm totally lost for some of them... I would be interested in a wooden stand, wooden screen and life sized fan, but from what I understand, I can order the stand and screen separately from the figure but the lize sized fan is a pre-order bonus from a specific shop?

Eschasintra2 days ago#83899146Also small disclaimer, it seems like the 1RMB option for the acrylic box is out of stock, the page does not let me check that option anymore. I'll wait some days to see if they'll come back to stock otherwise I'll mark it as out of stock.Isn’t it still available? The option now changes to 仅限预定过韶华的客户拍下改价 for a price of 30RMB, but I think ‘拍下改价’ means that when you purchase that option, the price will be changed by the seller, probably to 1RMB in this case. Somebody please correct me if I’m wrong!

lizzy-dark-rose1 day ago#83912841Do you have any recommendations for Proxy services? I'm looking at Buyee, but their order screen says Pre-orders are hit and miss depending on the seller, so the transaction might not go through and I might no know until it's too late to pre-order.The most used proxies are right here in this article! But, isn’t Buyee for Japan? I don’t think it can be used for buying from Taobao.

Unless you mean proxy recommendations for Amazon JP, then I’ve heard that there’s Neokyo and Zenmarket, both of which a lot of people use.

AgentDrafire2 days ago#83865859I can't say for sure whether that price is normal, but using a proxy is definitely cheaper than Amazon JP. But like you said, Amazon JP is more convenient, so it's a matter of cost vs convenience. If you use proxy, you'll have to pay either a deposit or the full price, unlike Amazon JP which you can pay the whole price when it ships. The imgur links don't work, maybe try using another picture hosting site! But to answer your question, yes this should change when you pay for the figure. It'll probably show 30RMB at first but after you move further through the payment process it should change to 1RMB. If it doesn't, you can contact the proxy customer service, they should be able to help you!

Oh dang, it's out of stock? I read the instructions incorrectly and thought that if you preordered from the first ACG shop link, the box would be automatically prordered for you. Man I'm dumb. But I'm glad I didn't get to order it tbh. I'm not sure if it's the final design, but the background looks a bit tacky to me. And shipping costs would be saved as well? Lol. Well, perfect time to order the screen instead :D

AgentDrafire2 days ago#83865825I posted this in the comments of her, but I'll post it here too just in case OP wants to update this blog.
Randomly checked Taobao and now there's a bunch of other options for the box/screen if anyone is interested (pictures in spoiler).

Thank you, I'll update the post later. Also small disclaimer, it seems like the 1RMB option for the acrylic box is out of stock, the page does not let me check that option anymore. I'll wait some days to see if they'll come back to stock otherwise I'll mark it as out of stock.

Also there are even more bonuses, I'd advice people to check out on their own (they're mainly variants of box and screen display), however check the store's reviews first before ordering, better be safe.

lizzy-dark-rose2 days ago#83865343Can someone answer a couple probably dumb questions for me? I'm just going to pre-order through Amazon.JP to save myself the hassle of learning how to use a Proxy site that I can't read. Shipping on Amazon says it'll be 40$. Is this normal? Would it be cheaper to use a proxy? And would a proxy let me pay when it ships like Amazon does? I'm obviously very new to all of this lmaoI can't say for sure whether that price is normal, but using a proxy is definitely cheaper than Amazon JP.

ChinchillaMoose2 days ago#83865600Can someone who ordered the figure+acrylic case through a proxy, particulary Superbuy, help comfirm that im doing everything correctly. If i'm understanding the instructions correctly, I first go use this listing and select these choices in the figure listing , then add to cart and complete the purchase. After I have to go use the seperate acrylic case listing and select these choices, add to cart and complete the purchase. What i'm a bit confused about is why it says the case is 30RMB instead of 1RMB, will this change after I've purchased the figure? I really appricate the help, thanks!The imgur links don't work, maybe try using another picture hosting site! But to answer your question, yes this should change when you pay for the figure.
