Ah she's cute, but am unsure about her still.

My Hatsune Miku 01 turned up today, going to unbox her now. :P

Good lord, I certainly wasn't expecting such failure from Goodsmile Company regarding international business...

For those who haven't followed/learned about that, GSC allowed overseas customers to order some of their figures, mostly their charity actions through their official website.
The thing is that they advertized that the only shipping method was EMS, at a flat rate of 2000 yens, regardless how many figurines you were ordering (so same fee for 1 to 5 figurines).

I was suspecting something weird, considering how expensive it may be for them with EMS on the long run, but it seems the horror was worse than anyone could expect:
Initially, after 2-3 weeks, people were wondering what was going on since no parcel arrived, and more importantly: close to no one received a tracking ID.
Only after many inquiries, GSC finally responded with that kind of email:
Quote:
Dear Sir and Madam

Thank you very much for your message.
Your order has been send on the 14th of July.
We are checking and let you know later.

Best Regards,

Goodsmile online customer support

Thank you very much for your message.
Sorry for inconvenience this matter.

For your shipping, The pursuit number is not issued.
Your order has been send on the 14th of July.
When it is customer's delivery country, even the arrival will be about 3 months time-consuming of us.
Please contact us again when the spare prick doesn't reach.

Best Regards,

Goodsmile online customer support
After some people from Singapore reported their parcel being nothing close to EMS, lots of people multiplied the inquiries (and for good measure heh), which finally turned into this today:

Dear ____________

Regarding to Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Support version for worldwide delivery,
We are plan to ship by EMS but this time we ship by Surface Parce.
We are sorry indeed for the report's delaying.

We are getting time to the shipment straightening arrival by shipping service about the customer whom the spare prick has not arrived now.

Your order has been send on the 14th of July from Hong Kong.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Spoiler for list of the countries and the expected shipping time:
I can't help but feel extremely pissed off by this turn of event: overcharged shipping fee aside, it is more like the false advertisement that EMS was the only available option for shipping. Of course, if you also considering how long they took to actually apologize, finally admitting the shipping method used, it certainly makes the matter worse. But to add the insult to the injury, we are receiving some sort of google translated email, along with a mention that the nendo are being sent by [surface parcel], not even SAL...

I sure hope it will be the only one epicfail they've done with their oversea customers, otherwise, I'll feel pity for those who orderer the madoka figurines, especially that huge ass Kyuubey.

You can count me in, I'm one of the many angry victims of GSC Online's bait and switch shipping option.

I received those e-mails today too, it seems it was a mass email sent to everyone who ordered Nendo Support Miku. To think that I e-mailed them on August 1 and I only got a response today, a generic, machine translated response for the masses. Talk about rubbing salt into the wound.

What's worse is, that's just the beginning of our problems, because by Surface Parcel shipping, our packages are exposed to the danger of getting crushed in transit and the risk of outright loss without insurance, aside from the very long wait. I've got a lot of patience, so I am capable of waiting for long, but what I just can't stand is, we've been technically scammed on shipping. That's just wrong. It's plainly false advertising. It's outrageous.

There's a big uproar going on now on Nendo Support Miku's page on MFC, naturally, many other people are very angry about this.

Was just about to post the same thing when i got a response to my email. They really dropped the ball this time. I have to wait 3 months that is ridiculous!

There's a big uproar going on now on Nendo Support Miku's page on MFC, naturally, many other people are very angry about this.
That uproar on MFC was ironically enough more informative than GSC (thanks to this, I stopped being worried about not having a tracking ID after realizing that 90%+ had the same issue).

I really wonder what has happened for such fiasco: GSC didn't have trouble to import a lot of them for the Anime Expo in USA and Japan Expo in France (they had 300 for the latter, and I really don't regret for having been impatient and buying one on the spot despite my pre order).
I mean, sure the mass is probably much bigger compared to the quantity they have brought for the 2 conventions, but they should have been prepared themselves, considering the sheer amount of pre order stopped on April. They had like 2 months to deal with it, yet we got belated excuses... urgh.

What concerns me the most is that since Surface Parcel (by boat, correct?) is likely to be expotionally more dangerous the longer it takes, I wonder if the nendo will be fine for some people, considering how flimsy the package are.

I was kind of lucky, but I would be definitely pissed off if I were to discover that kind of crap, while some people would have it for $40/30€ by just wandering in one of these conventions.

Been ordering figures for 10 years from HLJ using SAL, I've yet to recieve more damage than a little dented corner

On guitar forums, you should read the horror stories from guys shipping guitars CONUS through the much revered 'famous' parcel companies

Even SAL would have been fine. What we are talking about right now is actually Surface Parcel, which is yet even more risky and random than SAL altogether (unless I'm mistaken, Surface Parcel is actually by boat...).

This is my first figure kit for the year. I can't believe the year is almost over and I'm just getting my first figure kit done. Then again, this kit's been on the bench for a little over a year. It's from a sculptor that goes by the circle polygonia. The complete build progress is here: http://gamerabaenre.com/?page_id=2087

And this is what she looks like now:

Like what Klashikari said, we were talking about Surface Parcel, which is different from SAL and is most likely shipping by literal ship, as GSC sent us a list of countries and the time it would likely take the packages to arrive, with most countries listed as either taking 2 or 3 months, whereas SAL usually takes no more than a month to arrive. Some people on MFC even got replies from GSC saying their packages, shipped in July, would reach them in October.

I've ordered from HLJ a few times as well, always via SAL except for one package, and as far as I'm concerned, they use one of the sturdiest boxes out there, which has kept my goods safe even if they use less inner packaging than their competitors. The problem is, the packages GSC sent appears to have little or no inner packaging aside from outer boxes that might not be the toughest. This is made worse when you think that they're most likely sending by ship and not by plane like SAL.

@GameraBaenre
Good job with your GK, I saw your post on Figure.fm as well. That's an interesting, unconventional choice you made regarding Asuka's test plugsuit.
