Well, completed payment form for 2 figures - my first order done directly with a supplier.

Rinko Nendoroid by Goodsmile - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10118391a7/20/7

Asuka Plug Suit ver by Kotobikuya - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10119077a2/20/2

My friend who regular orders from them says they're quick with delivery, so since it's mid-week, probably will see them early next week. For the pair and shipping, just shy of $150 AUS.

Hm, just paid two customs charges today. I really do hope one of them is Miku. I know one is the Miku live concert DVD as I checked. My bank account is going to hate me this month and I bet I'll get charged for everything too. :X

I live in Australia and I can't say I've ever had any custom charges and I've brought a bloody lot of things over the past two years.

I know if an item is declared at over a thousand dollars you'll have to pay tax but I can't say I've put that much down in one hit.

EDIT:

Just paid for some figures off AmiAmi.





A rather boring day now ends in excitement!

I've just completed the payment for the Alter Mio Figurine!
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10115787

Oh yeah.

PayPal are evil , they took about 5-6 dollars with the exchange rates and taxes

Welcome to the UK. Yeah, we have to pay for most things we import, as well as some silly Parcelforce handling fee which totals it all up to over a tenner at least.

Ah well, VN02 came today and it was well worth the extra moolah I had to spend on charges. Such a lovely figure and the box is massive! I never realised it was this big. o_o

Another reason I don't want to live in the UK.

Yet the UK still possesses Emma Watson so the scales are still lightly tipped in their favour...

;D

Don't get me wrong, I really like the UK (Well, I'm kind of biased as I was born here and am English), but trying to import things is generally completely luck based whether they pick something up or not.

Like my first Hirasawa Yui Nendo that arrived last week, didn't get charged, but my Azusa did a few weeks before. I've still got the second Yui Nendo coming and I really hope that doesn't get charged as buying it was a mistake in the first place but I couldn't cancel it. :P

VN02 is a flop in Japan, and you can pick whatever is left cheap at a fraction of the suggested retail price.

Don't get me wrong, the scupture is good but people just hate the semi-realistical face. I think they would have done better going for the Project Diva version of VN02.

I got it in the amiami sale for quite cheap, other than that my Mio Nendo shipped today.

IM not-so-HO it's the fact that Miku herself is ~1/10, not 1/8 as advertised. I cried when I recieved her, felt cheated.

I'm not sure, I've got the other Max Factory Miku and she's 1/7 and VN02 looks ever so slightly bigger.

With the base and all that stuff around her. But the figure itself is no larger than 1/10
