    LOL, GSC just put up one of those apology notices. Lacia was delayed from June to August, after already being delayed from the original date in March. And she's a rerelease!

    just got my shipping notice for Queen Pharnelis ITEM #773406 from Nippon Yasan. Looking forward to getting her but not sure when she'll get out of the box. i'm basically maxed on on display space right now but am going to be switching rooms around in the house and the new hobby room should have more display space. a lot more.

    No pre-orders but Comic Con and Wonder Fest are this month so you never know what might show up.
    I want vintage anime and videogame figures!

    Wonder Festival hasn't been too interesting for me for a while now so I hope this one is different. As Koto's G.I. Joe Baroness just went up for order which means much of what they've announced is done with, maybe they'll have something interesting at the comic con.

    Kotobukiya could show a sketch of the next in the GI Joe line at Comic Con. They should have the next horror figure too.

    Still even if there isn't anything to add to the list at Wonder Festival, I like seeing what they are able to come up with.

    I didn't remember WF was this month. Cool, I always enjoy the show, even if there aren't any figures I'm interested.

    got my payment request for hermaphroditos. jfc between that and the TOM sale earlier this month I may have overdone it a little. Also shipping notification for ITEM #740378 from TOM. I'm either in figure heaven or figure hell. Maybe it's the same place.

    Nothing for me this month, but my first Native figure finally arrived, Ichimanda Munetoku and Senzaki Tokuno ♥ [NSFW] ITEM #331654

    View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/robert181564621704.jpeg

    I sweated putting them together, it's not as easy as it looks, but either way, understable the reputation from Native, they are so well scultep and the paint work is also top notch.

    Really pleased with these two ^_^

    PS. The pig is kinda cute xD

    Scarlett is out. But I might wait till Amazon's sale perhaps even get her direct from Kotobukiya during Christmas since I think they have sales as well.

    What forwarding services do you guys use? I used to use dv8cag but they had to close down so they could live their lives.

    Against my better judgement I just used buyee to get some books Amazon would not ship internationally, the 2000 & 2013 JoJo artbooks. Consolidated, they're quoting me 15k yen for shipping which is absolutely insane and a total scam. I've had much larger orders cost me 1.7k-3k yen from amazon & dv8cag via EMS.

    The difficulty here is that buyee is one of those rip off services where the response to anything is "we'll investigate" or "we're not responsible" and now that my books are in their warehouse I'm pretty much stuck.

    What really f**ks me off is that Amazon have these books listed as "fulfilled by Amazon" but won't ship them outside of Japan, the price there is 1-2k yen more than I won them for on Y!Oku but would be like 2k yen to ship to me. 15k yen shipping for 15k yen of books, GG!

    Can't answer your actual question but I wanted to comment on the "fulfilled by Amazon" part. For those items, in general it's just like ordering from the 3rd parties on Amazon Japan when it's being handled by those sellers directly, if the seller won't ship overseas (and most won't), then Amazon won't either.

    Unfortunately, due to the way their site works, for items that, if Amazon had them in stock themselves they would ship to you, it won't show that they can't be shipped to you until you actually try to complete your order. I know this first-hand from my own experience trying to order some anime blu-rays from them a year or so ago.

    Hearsay, I've read Tenso has ok fees.

    Yeah I noticed that with Amazon, I eventually added every seller's copy of the books & items I wanted to my basket and when I whittled down the "no foreigners plz" at checkout there was nothing left!

    I've heard the same but Tenso own Buyee and Buyee seem to do whatever they can to inflate the shipping. I've never had shipping like Buyee charges when I used to get packages from dv8cag. I've used Buyee in the distant past and forgot how outrageous the shipping gets, I thought it would be no biggie as I was only buying 2 books.

    I never dealt with dv8cag, but my impression was they were a collector that did this to help others out. Of course it was still a business, but perhaps not operated the same way these larger operations are.

    I don't know anything about Tenso or Buyee, but from the limited things I read I thought the difference was that since Tenso only forwards, doesn't do Yahoo JP auctions or buy things for you, that the fees were less.

    I've only ever used one service, for Yahoo JP and to buy some things where I couldn't do it myself at all. It worked out ok, but the fees were always more than I thought they'd be. If I can't buy myself now I generally just do without.
