Just this week a figure that I had pre-ordered was released. It's very heavy and big, so I expected big money shipping. What I was left with was 21.000 yen shipping and 20.000 yen customs. Just to note, the figure itself was a bit under 30.000 yen. This price hurt and I probably wouldn't have bought it if I could've seen this from the future.
I'm considering if I should just never order from places that don't display shipping prices before release, or if I should never pre-order a pay later item anywhere.

Anyone else experiencing this? What do you do if so?

JetJockey6 dias atrás#113931184Is this the figure (BLOG #55601)?
I think I've seen figures from that company before. I noted to watch some similar prototypes. If so, I can see why you wanted that one so much. She is a nice figure.
Well I mostly just fell in love with her, and I've played the game every day since release and it's my main game, so I sort of fell for this figure fast and decided I'd pay 50.000+ yen for her. (It ended at around 70.000 yen after customs)

JetJockey7 dias atrás#113897273Which figure is it?
I tend to be very careful with pre-orders. I rarely use Amiami these days. But even they put the package size what boxes they use. So you can get a feel for the shipping price if you use Amiami. I tend to use 1999 these days.

Kirin_Kirin8 dias atrás#113863870Yeah, it was an unfortunate DHL-only situation. Nothing I could've done once I got the payment request. Customs where I live is just awful sometimes, so I see it mostly as unluck right now.

JetJockey8 dias atrás#113863307What figure is this that cost more to get to you, than the cost of the actual figure?
You need to find a domestic store if that's happening.

Enppu9 dias atrás#113845308That is quite a lot for shipping. May I inquire as to what shipping method is this with and what the item might be?
Before I buy anything, I tend to look around if I could find the dimensions and the weight of the item(s) anywhere, so I could estimate what the shipping costs might be, if they're not specified beforehand.
I myself have thought of getting one of the more affordable Fernandes hide (X Japan)-signature guitars from Japan one day, but I'm afraid of what the shipping costs might be like.

I thought the shipping itself would be 20k+ yen, but the customs really hit me

i like to buy lots of items using proxy services and ship them via surface to australia :^) it saves heaps! but uh,,, auspost is closing surface until march next year,,, so my junk will probs just rot in neokyo’s warehouse until then unfortunately :’^))

so uh,, just try to always pick surface!! you really begin to appreciate it once it’s gone hhhh

Just the nature of the ever evolving game. Right now shipping is really bad due to inflation, covid, gas prices, lack of staff and everything... The price has gone thru the roof along with the original figures. I don't think there's anything wrong with it you may just have to be patient instead of getting the figure right away if you wanna save on shipping costs by doing surface if it's available. If not ur just SOL.

This is coming from a person who hates waiting. I've always used DHL or other premium shipping services in the past and only recently gone down to EMS to help save on shipping costs. I'm even starting to consider surface as I have a big ass order coming up and would rather not imagine the extra 200-300 if I use ems or DHL
