240EZ (6 days ago) #41584351Wow really? That sucks a lot. Where did you hear that information?

I found the info on "myanimeshelf". There's 6 figures in the Onmyoji line and they are exclusive to the Chinese market. Aoandon (first from Onmyoji line) opened preorders in June and is still only available to preorder in China now (after 4 months). I wanted to buy these myself but they turned out too expensive. Especially getting them using an agent. That's why I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Authoritah (6 days ago) #41583151Sadly she won't be getting a release outside of China. Taobao is about the most reputable website you can get her at. And that price is a bit above her retail so that's also bad news.

240EZ (6 days ago) #41579471Thank you for the info. I might wait till I see a release from a JP or more reputable website. 15-20% of full price is $300+ in USD and that seems a bit much for a 1/8th figure.

240EZ (6 days ago) #41542684Is the listed price the total price or will it be more? Anybody know I've never used Taobao to understand how this works.

You mean the price of ¥300.00 that is listed? That is just the deposit of about 15-20% of the full price. You pay for the rest upon release I think or maybe earlier. I've ordered from Taobao before and I think the only way to do that from outside of China is by using an agent. I personally use Taobaoring. You just place an order by using a link of the item on Taobao and give them the details about it and they order the item for you. They charge a service fee of 6% but that's about it.

Maronn (24 days ago) #40637050You can pre-order Ubume on Taobao now. According to my proxy, she'll get a release on January. :)

I use Superbuy. It's not the perfect proxy for me since I lose a lot due to the currency rate (I pay in USD but my Credit card will initially want the amount in CHF and they originally sell it in CNY) but as far as I've seen it's one of the more convenient proxies. They don't require any fees but you can tip them; the shipping is unfortunately rather high though. I am still trying to figure out how chinese proxies work, so I might have overseen some parts. If you find a better proxy, please let me know.^^

I think you have to check the amount of diamonds the sellers on taobao have (seems to be the equivalent to the stars on ebay). The more diamonds, the better the chances of legit products.

Personally, I just let my proxy ask the seller if the figures are made by Hobby Max and then just took a leap of faith. Thankfully, the Ootengu I bought seems to be legit indeed, so I just bookmarked the seller and will get my other Onmyoji figures from him. :)

I guess so. Ootengu, Yoto Hime and Aoandon are still all over Taobao, so I highly doubt that Ubume will be different.

Do you have any idea whether she'll appear in any other stores? I absolutely can't even afford a deposit right now but I wanted her so badly for so long. :(

May I ask what proxy are you using and what kind of fees to expect from them (percentage or fixed fee). Also any tips on spotting legitimate listings? I'm interested in ootengu and I'm finding listings with various prices and seller ratings that doesn't quite make much sense to me s.taobao.com/se...
