    nezra18 days ago#103734129I'm on the fence about the Keqing figure. On one hand it looks really nice, it's pretty tall thanks to the dynamic base/pose, and it's not that expensive all things considered. Keqing is my main since day one as well.
    On the other side though, I've never preordered a figure before, and so ordering one that won't drop for a full year might be a bit much. I also don't like that AmiAmi doesn't appear to give prices for their shipping options, since I don't want to lock myself in with one of the options and just accept the price they give me later.
    Plus this is over a year until release followed by long shipping times and potential holiday shipping delays right? So realistically probably February 2023? Ugh.
    Any thoughts or tips?


    If they made a figure of my main or my other favorites, I'd scream... xD That aside, it might seem too far away right now, but there's a really good chance you won't find Keqing for the pre-order price once pre-orders are closed everywhere and especially after she comes out.
    If it feels like a weight on you to have a payment that'll be asked from you a year later, you might pick a shop that requests immediate payment. Or if paying immediately for something you won't get for a year feels unacceptable, you can pick a shop that'll require payment later on.
    Either way, if you really like her (since she's your main, I'm assuming you do), investing in the figure could be nice in the end. Again; these pre-order prices probably won't happen once they're all gone.
    I didn't choose pre-ordering for a long time for things I wanted, until I realized how much money I was losing. So now, if there's a character I want, I try to do it.
    Time flies, I say go for it. :p

    You're not locking yourself in. They require you to choose a shipping option, yes, but you can change it anytime once the payment request comes out and you can actually see which shipping option has which price. Okay, not once you've paid already of course, but you won't be forced to stick to Air Mail for example if SAL is cheaper, etc.

    So as the one before me already said, I would really recommend pre-ordering since aftermarket prices tend to be awful for figures, especially popular ones. In the worst case, it's likely that you can at the very least sell it for what you've paid without any issues, if not more. You don't want to regret not pre-ordering her however just because of time and shipping, especially since the latter is really not a problem at all.

    As for the time... It sucks naturally, but that's how many figures are nowadays. I know it's hard to plan for at times, especially when you're in a situation where you don't know where you might be in a year, but if you're not in any way struggling nor expecting any drastic changes for now, I'd always go for it.

    The chances are just so much higher to regret not buying her, especially when she's pretty important to you as a character. In the end it's up to you of course but if there's nothing extreme speaking against a pre-order, I'd go for it. As I said, AmiAmi won't force the initial shipping method on you. I've changed it before as well without any problems after seeing some of the differences for certain items.

    The good part about such long pre-orders is naturally that you can plan ahead of time. So even if something is a bit more expensive, you can just set aside some funds each month. :D
