She just got canceled from my Mandarake order and now I'm not sure if I want to live anymore,
I've never had that before. Probably just AusPost adding Japan's tracking status for some reason. You should get "Received for processing" and "Onboard with driver" probably tomorrow or Wed. I wouldn't fret too much.

>You should get "Received for processing" and "Onboard with driver"
What fucking country are you in. My shit just disappears from the face of the earth after leaving Japan and shows up at my house unannounced anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks later. And that's registered post.
Yeh. Actually, looking on my previous shipments, it has had it, but it's always been the first thing, before any events occur at all. I think it's just Japan's tracking confirming that the overseas carrier has received it. I've never seen it pop up that late.
Australia. Post here is actually pretty good, I have to say.
>Order big shippment of figures from AmiAmi (About $200AUD)
>Been 8 weeks, it's most likely been lost in transit (RSAL)
>Contact AmiAmi support to try to resolve the issue and to hopefully get a refund
>They refuse any compensation or refund option
>Create paypal dispute
>AmiAmi responds with: "Should your payment be reversed due to this PayPal dispute, we will no longer be able to continue business relations, and all orders on the account will be canceled and the account permanently closed."
I've been a long time member of AmiAmi and been buying plenty from them every other month and this is how I get treated.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Any suggestions on other ways to approach this without getting my future orders cancelled?
You're right. I looked back at mine too and they also have it, just at the start.
Australia surprisingly has working post tracking.
8 weeks is a pretty long time. Does RSAL have tracking? If so use that to find out where it is.
If it's definitely lost or you can't track it just get your money back and use another set of details and address for a new amiami account.
You're a rude dumbass. It's your country's postal service that you get a refund from. You contact them, then they contact the vendor (amiami). It takes a while but since you had registered you would get 6000 yen back. That's your problem you didn't use EMS for such an expensive order. It's idiots like you that make others suffer, it's why amiami is too damn strict.
You can use AusPost's parcel lockers if you really want to go through with disputing it. But I have to agree with >>115946104, you really should have used EMS for an expensive order, which actually would have insured the full cost in the case it got lost (¥20000).
I've got an extra Halloween nendo. Don't wanna sell it, but I'm looking to trade. Anyone have any of these?
>They told me to go to paypal like every other person who has issues with online shopping.
Except your issue seems to be entirely with shipping. Did you get a shipment confirmation? It should have some sort of tracking code if you did use RSAL. Check that like other anons are saying and report back if you have tracking on it.
I've been looking for that Crab+Snail set for a while. No chance you're getting anyone to bite on that, anon.
Not to mention that phoenix scale goes for well over $200. Same for monkey.
Just watch it, it's 12 eps of fun and hilarity. If you like mains like say.... Lelouch or.... well mains that do the whole fake "smart" thing to own shit up, it's like that + otaku themes/comedy.
This is so frustrating. I'm probably about to get banned from mandarake because they won't take my visa debit card, even though i'm positive it can be charged as credit. It's an adult item so paypal isn't an option, and this is the second time i'll likely have to cancel since a previous item wouldn't take either paypal or the card, even when an item before that took paypal just fine.
Does anyone have absolutely any suggestion on what to do? I'm going to call my bank today and see if just maybe things can be sorted out (that didn't work last time), but they've given me a deadline of tomorrow to pay for it. Basically my problem is that it gets to verified by Visa, I see my bank's logo, and then I get a 1g97 error.
If all else fails, will they likely ban me for second cancellation in a month or so? Are they permanent? The first cancellation was really stupid because it failed using the exact same information that was successful a few weeks prior, though it was a different store.
Same thing happened to me and I cancelled yesterday.
I cancelled my order, everything went back in stock, reordered everything but the R18 items in seconds, and I'm pretty sure in revenge of this, they cancelled Rachel.
By the way, has anyone seen pic related ANYWHERE? All I can find are bootlegs and she was apparently released a week ago.
Should I be worried or does it take this long sometimes?
>people making so much trouble in their lives over porn
You need to learn to be at peace with yourselves. You don't NEED certain H doujins in your life if it causes that much hassle. Just read them online or go do some activity. When visiting family or traveling I don't get horny and lonely.
Plots not big enough and no butt. I still want it because it's probably the only chance to get non prize Isuzu fig.
I don't read or fap to my bought doujins and eromanga(PC is more user friendly), I barely open them up to look at them because the art is beautiful. They're collector items, and I think most people who buyfag doujins or eromanga think the same way.
It's actually a pretty tame (but one nude side) dakimakura cover of the love of my life, not some shitty porn doujin. There's not another one on the internet as far as I can tell. It's something I really want, know I can afford, but Mandarake won't take my money.
The item I previously canceled for wasn't NSFW, the payment just would not work.
Kyoani webshop exclusive.
I love those boots.
They'll never top Alice's boots.
They'll never top Aozaki's boots.
Both fucking packages leave japan EMS on Friday and one of them will be getting here today but the other won't be getting to my house until god knows when. Fucking thanks USPS, you pile of shit.
>I still want it because it's probably the only chance to get non prize Isuzu fig.
The show seems to be very popular so who knows, maybe Alter will pick her up and hopefully do something based on anime art. They did Chitanda and gay swimmers for example.
>Nendoroid Seishiro Tsugumi
>Will also be going up for preorder tomorrow!!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Every day until Laura's -Bunny Style- figure by Kotobukiya is up for preorders.
They both go up at the same time from what I can gather.
>Getting taxxed when using RSAL
Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get Asuka before christmas
Her other expressions look better
The same way as homu's pantyhose
Would take a better picture
to show off, but I'm on the way to class.
In response to your question, I've seen one pop up on Mandarake.
Killing adults is A-OK, touching children on the other hand is not. You've got to realize that a lot of people who are murderers, maybe even thieves or people who even got tossed in for some misdemeanor may have children of their own, so they don't like that shit at all.
I know. That's why it's funny.
>Hey I may have murdered and eaten the face of this guy, but at least I didn't take nude pics of him as a kid!
You'd think they'd notice the irony.
Yeah it's wied isnt it. Murderers and robbers thinking they're any better than rapists and pedophiles.
To me I just think all criminals are equaly disgusting. If you did something bad enough to land yourself in jail you're just as bad as a rapist or a murderer to me. I guess the one thing I could forgive is use of excessive force when protecting yourself.
You need to be a special kind of retarded to break the law so flagrantly that you get put into prison.
Theese people do no posess working brains or they'd be living more normal lives instead of sitting behind bars.
>Criminal law dictates morality
Considering they're in prison, they're most likely desensitized to the former. On the other hand, few people don't have soft spots for children.
I'm not accusing anon of raping or producing CP. But Tyrone won't care much for the distinction here.
No but you need to do some pretty retarded things to go to jail.
Oh yeah I forgot you can actually go to jail for not paying taxes, that's something I could condone too I gues
Should i buy tharja figure in barcelona fair this weekend? Last fair was for 50 bucks i think it's kinda worth
>Waiting for Kirigiri for my monthly shipment
>mfw the despair is almost over
GSC is not coming this year. And beware of bootlegs. I'd recommend against mostly because the shops here are pretty much all guaranteed to sell bootlegs or prize with the only exception of "La Vila del Pingüí", which sells legit figma and nendo.
And yes, I'm going too.
Out of interest, has anyone here actually ordered bath towel loli that lives in a country that has strict anti loli laws like Canada or the UK?
Sweden, and our high court overturned the guilty verdict in only case of "loli porn = childporn" that has come before them, ruling that the immages were not "life like" or something of the sort, which I find to be bullshit reasoning.
Far better arguments than that exist if you're against criminalizing loli, and since they decided not to use them i guess they're waiting for someone to get busted with something like gieger counter to get on someones case with it. There's plenty of other reasons not to like this country. Progressivism is ramparant and destroying our culture, our legal system is througly politicised, and we're letting in so many niggers, ghyppos and arab trash that we dont even have housing for them anymore. But at least for now, loli is not illegal.
>tfw october order being held because your dumbass added a back-order item at the last second out of impulse
My wallet and conscience say no but my dick says yes
From the thumbnail I thought her traut was slit on the right side and she had a chest wound on the left side and blood was splattered around.
Thought you had pretty shitty taste from the thumbnail and thought the same after viewing full size.
for me the only thing that matters for tax is value. Correctly declared packages get taxed without fail.
On the plus side, they dont seem to be opening anything ever, not that i would be ordering dangerous stuff either way
>figures that will never get released, because people hate money
please show me how to analogy, senpai.
>It can't be just belts right?
Looks like it.
>Hello,<br /><br />The person in charge to send the figures from the german stock to us forgot to put your Tomoe Mami in the parcel. We can't send your order before Wednesday now.<br /><br />We are really sorry about it and refund you 5% of the figurine price.<br /><br />Regards,<br />Thomas Van Hove
Mandarake explicitly says in their FAQ that you can't use PayPal for adult items.
PayPal doesn't allow it but they won't know unless it's noted somewhere. I've used PayPal in the past to buy R-18 doujinshi through proxies just fine.
Pick something that is - as the name says - analogous.
>banning loli material
fictional genre for entertainment
>leads to pedophilia
a crime, supposedly inspired by the genre
>banning loli material because it leads to pedophilia is like banning the punisher because it leads to vigilantism.
A famous, unassailable work of literature reveling in crime in would probably be better, but none comes to mind right now.
Why does aniplex have to team up with rightstuff?!!?!?!?
I did order it it's just annoying that they specifically go through those anime retailers. And it's my post I'll (&^(^%*%$#(&*%(^%#&%$$)*&(*%[email protected]?!?!?!?!?! if i want too.
Be happy that she was available to order at all from a domestic shop for about the same price or less than what she's sold for in Japan. They could've gone the same route most other exclusives do and made you rely on a proxy to get her.
>don't get damaged
Your postal service must be pretty shit if things get damaged regularly. I order tons of stuff from amazon and their thin cardboard packaging barely gets any dents at all.
The mailman either hands them to me in person or places them in the hallway. They're too large to be crammed into the mail slot anyway.
>barely any dents
It doesn't matter how well your service provider is, shit gets damaged if you don't package it inside a box larger than it with bubble wrap.
Amazon ships things often times in a cardboard box with no packaging. Your package shouldn't have any dents. Double points if they ship in a paper envelope.
>defending UPS, the worst mail delivery system
What a madman, but I respect your courage anon.
Who said i'm murrican? DHL delivers amazon packages here.
And by "dents" I mean the first paper layer of cardboard being damaged, not even the second one. If your postal service is good then this is sufficient.
Hell, once they shipped a harddrive sort of suspended inside the cardboard via clingfoil. No bubblewrap. Arrived in perfect condition.
Whoever wanted them last time, they are back in stock on amiami.
Once, I bought some books from local amazon. They wrapped it in one layer of cardboard and sent it to me. The was no dent, but the packaging was so shit that the bill fell out. Of course, the books were full of dents.
Finally got my daki, but when I was putting the stuffing in, the seams on either side of the zipper ripped.
Should I bother sewing it together, or do you think its fine? I'm not too worried about it
Does anyone know what sites are good for getting magazines from japan? I'm trying to collect some older issues from a small series, and although mandarake has some my only other alternative is ebay... which means I might as well cut my balls for extortion now.
>I'm not too worried about it.
If that's how you feel about you're waifu then I feel sorry for her anon. She deserves better than that.
What's the general opinion on Ryuko pvc? 60 bucks for it excluding shipping seems nice, and it'll look nice next to my bayonetta pvc and hopefully satsuki later
Im tempted to buy both of them from PERFECT-STUDIO. (The ones for around 230+ dollars)
Holy fucking shit I was right.
>Cancels a part of my order
>Puts her back up for sale a few hours later
Mandarake is full of spiteful bastards.
what have I done
someone help me out of the rabbit hole
Would you prefer these hands?
So if an order gets lost in transit, how exactly would someone get a refund from them? It doesn't seem to make sense that if I were to contact them, they would contact Amiko and get a refund from them. Also, is it "your country's" postal service that goes to pick up a package and deliver it, which is why they'd be responsible? I don't know how shipping works because I just assumed the SAL was a huge ship from Japan that goes from one country to the next distributing goods, which is also why I don't see how contacting a postal service for a refund would help.
>I don't know how shipping works because I just assumed the SAL was a huge ship from Japan that goes from one country to the next distributing goods
SAL Has nothing to do with a boat. It's the lowest priority airmail which gets treated as surface mail once it reaches your country.
As to refunds, well it depends on whether or not your package was insured. If it was insured then in theory you're entitled to the declared value on the package from the postal service that lost it. So you'd have to file a claim with the postal office or get the sender to file a claim with the postal office, wait for them to conduct an 'investigation' and if you're lucky you'll get a refund.
Selling Halloween Miku nendo from the New York expo. I rather sell to you guys first. Email at
>SAL was a huge ship from Japan that goes from one country to the next
Ordered a daki and all I got was a blank pillow case. What gives?
Suddenly I imagined a massive crew of anime loving sailors and their captain just singing japanese sea songs and toddeling around the world delivering pvc figs.
Your mind is beautiful, anon
The refund depends on where the package is lost. When you pay high shipping fees, like EMS, you are paying so that Amiko makes sure that both postal services from Japan and your country agree to refund the value stated on your invoice in case it is lost.
If the package lost its tracking somewhere in Japan, Amiko will contact their local mail service and ask for the refund, if its lost after it entered your country you'll have to contact them and make them refund your money if it indeed is lost.
This is a long process and can be very tiresome if its the first time it happens to you but its the only way to get it resolved. Its not Amiko's fault that your mail service is shitty if you didn't get your package.
You just made it sound a whole lot more appealing than what I was thinking and now I want to live in that world too.
To the anon from the last thread. They have your cat girl for $104. Let me know if you still want her, I can haggle with the owner.
They also had two glass cases of figs. $5 each.
Picked this up Saturday at a con, pretty pleased with it. It'll look great once I get it in the cabinet.
That's nice to know.
I'll think about it for a while. I'm going to receive an AmiAmi payment invoice sometime this week and I'll have to take care of that first.
Thanks for asking.
I made an order with Toranoana the other day and it doesn't show up in the "preparing shipment", "shipped", or "canceled/out of stock" sections. But when I search for it using the order number it does show up, and I did get an automatic confirmation email.
I've ordered with them before and I don't think this has ever happened. Am I going to get my shit?
>Actually going to cons
>Buying figures at cons.
I'm not surprised that it's KLK.
What proxy works with Tora? I tried FromJapan, however they don't take orders from them, now I have just sent in a request to Mio's Boutique and I have the feeling it wont work for them, either.
I generally try to ignore anything that remotely resembles League of Legends. Which is hard when they have a massive area set up just for it.
More than anything it was the clearly chinese Pokemon stuff which stood out.
Don't worry it doesn't actually take forever.
It's a couple of weeks at most, 3 weeks of your country's post office is shit. If you just want shit to get to you fast just use EMS.
Im going to the biggest
animeconin my country this weekend, but Im afraid of purchasing any figures because the fucking bootlegs.
>deformed SnK nendos everywhere
Fucking shit. I'll stick with DVD/BDs and manga, I guess. Maybe I'll look for the Eva 02 Revoltech (not revuild version).
what are you drawing there?
Yup, I had to get Ray to go along with Rex. Now to wait for what 3A plans on doing next with the MGS license,
It also comes with a first release exclusive mini-daki keychain thing.
Then wait until they hamhand your package until it needs to be repackaged, then smash it up again, and deliver when you're out, then you reschedule and they ignore all instructions, come at some retarded hour and then throw your box on the ground in the open so someone can steal it.
DHL is shit.
Sorry to request spoonfeeding here, but already read the guide and found nothing. Just moved to Argentina, and customs are a hell here. Anybody from Argentina can tell me which kind of things are banned and how much taxes i'll end up paying?
why are you doing this to me
should I buy it?
I been waiting for this item to bin but its taking looong
How much is the painted skully (the one next to that odd transparent one)? Do you have an email that I could contact you at if you're willing to be a sort of proxy for this? Thanks for your time.
Can someone list some shops that aren't show in the guide?
Can't wait till December.
Just called the comic book shop, the owner is not in and those were just put up for display today.
The owner should be back tomorrow so I'll post again tomorrow with the prize for Zodd and Skull Knight.
I posted my email here >>115965190
Nothing really, just trying to practice drawing so I can make OC for buyfag threads. Made this recolor when I got a tablet, but the lines aren't straight.
I'll ask for the price of all the Beserker figures.
It's from an old touhou reference.
I have the original, but I really want the rerelease faces. Why have you done this Koto
Getting my house fumigated in a week or so, is my plastic butt safe in my detolf or should I pack them away for now
> inb4 Kill La Kill a shit
Dat hair game tho
This dirt cheap Shinobu prize fig is actually really cute in person. Glad I decided not to cancel. She has some bad seamlines though.
Can't see them, the dress is covering her.
Jap Yahoo auctions. It was fucking expensive but worth it.
>he can't order on a Japanese website
>One up for 93,500 yen
And that's where she'll stay.
Shame it's a nice fig but I don't think its worth damn near 1k.
Can't add to the order, it just means it's been accepted but they haven't gotten around to doing anything with it yet.
I think a second order would get shipped separately, unless everything is pre-orders that release in the same week.
I see several for <30k. I think I paid 16k after shipping and proxy fees for mine.
The one up for 94k is the double pick version or whatever they're called (can't remember the exact term) but only 100 of them exist.
You can get either of the other versions for ~10-15k
Thoughts on this titty monster? Anyone here have the previous version?
