That's painful. Raizoo should just ask me to order and resend it as a gift.

No custom fees that way, I think...

They're very nice about orders being cancelled.
I did not know about HMV. Thank you very much for that.

About Amazon, I thought I told you before, but their politic is now to declare everything they ship abroad, directly in Japan. So everything you order will be subject to custom fees&taxes (except for very small orders, for which you can be spare).
For non-US people I would advise against using Amazon, unless you want to pay a good +20% on your order when the postman finally delivers it to you .

They just started doing magazines very recently. I think they started this year actually. The friend who showed me HMV didn't notice they were taking magazine orders and screamed 'cause it was too late to cancel her Amazon order, olol.

Everything I want would be ordered from places that have to declare my orders. As much as I complain, it'll still be cheaper than ordering from CDJapan or YesAsia. :P

"Cheapest" thing to do would be to just wait until I can visit Japan. If a friend who went to Japan last month was still able to get tokuten for Nana's latest 3 singles, then I'll definitely be able to do the same for Yukarin.

Edit:
Oh, forgot. Australia doesn't follow the custom things. Friend in Italy said they only charge for really big packages. Don't know about other places. :B

You mean I'm not your friend, Demi?

So I got my Shamal I ordered from Amiami today. Took only 3 days with EMS. Neat, only... yeah, had to pay $11 at the door. This leads me to 2 possible conclusions:

1.) EMS shipping affects it. I've always ordered using SAL from HLJ
2.) Ordering from Amiami caused it, as I've never been charged for stuff from HLJ

To verify I'd have to order something from Amiami and ship it with SAL. The contents of the order did not affect anything, as I've ordered lone figmas before. Only difference is that HLJ uses bigger boxes.

It's EMS affect the odds of having customs charges to pay, I order from HLJ using EMS and always have to pay (once every blue moon I avoid to pay the charges though), whatever the size of the box.

I think because EMS package ares tracked, that's why they're more prone to customs inspections and taxes.

I doubt it'll be any different if I use AmiAmi vs Hobby Search vs Hobby Link concerning EMS vs SAL.

So when I get my plushies via SAL, I'll tell you what happens. x)

Y'know, now that you mention it, I do faintly remember how my Amazon packages get cleared at customs the day the items are being shipped - "helping" to speed up the delivery?

Some pics from me:



Here's Shamal and... well, there's really not much to say about her I like you Shamal, but you're rather plain. The only neat accessories you come with are for Hayate!




Shamal comes with a colour varient of Hayate's head so she can appear in unison mode.



Now Shamal can support her mistress on the battlefield!



And chill out as a family. There's the little Rein Shamal came with.



Would have been nice if they at least coloured in her eyes!



Well, she can hang out with Yuuno!

Spelling my name wrong certainly isn't a good foot to start off on

Well, at first I wasn't sure what to do with Rein since she didn't really stand anywhere, but I managed to fold Shamal's hands infront of her to make a seat for Rein to sit on.

Curious, but do any other figma owners find that sometimes the stands just don't fit? Hayate had this problem where the peg was too thick to fit into her back, and Shamal has the same problem. Nanoha's peg was too small and didn't really hold her back. I ended up switching Nanoha and Hayate's stands and those worked perfectly.

Happens on my Hayate figma, too. It makes the figma so fragile. No problem on Shamal, though (except the creepy eyeless Rein-chan).
