With all the rage towards GSC, a package from a friend showed up today as some balm... quite an excellent timing, since it is a Snow Miku 2011 (as expected, airmail would beat the crap out of GSC shipping method, despite this small packet was sent on Friday).



Box and nendo alone: over here.

I must admit I wasn't expecting to have troubles while posing her, but it wasn't really a cake walk either: the hole in her back is not really deep, so that "arm" doesn't exactly hold her tight, which is truly a bother when you have to move her torso etc.

Probably a balance of karma, I guess my snow miku was one of the average quality among the mass production without any major defect (thankfully *sigh*):
-the PVC color of her body is a bit weird: it isn't obvious on the pictures, but her arms and area outside of her face on the faceplate are... well salmon/orangeish for some reason, especially her left arm with de 01
-Hachune hair part had its paint scuffed around the bottom left strand of hair (thank goodness it wasn't on the regular hair part)
-The paint finish isn't exactly smooth at some area

Frankly, if I were to compare with the Support version, Snow Miku is definitely no match to the latter in term of production quality. That said, the color pattern and her second faceplate are excellent (Blue and Silver are my favorite colors so...), although I think it doesn't exactly worth the price tag I've spent there... (initial 5.5K with 800 yens for the handling over there, and that's without the shipping JP => BE).

By the way: does anyone know how to tag an uploaded picture with their respective figurines shown on it, in mfc? Trying to tag this one with Support and Snow 2011, but to no avail (can't find an option for it... just signed in few days ago so).

When you go to your picture's page, look for "Related Items" on the right column and click on Link/Unlink, check "Limit to my collection" if you've already added the figurine to your collection, then in the search box, look for the correct figurine and click Add.

If I'm not mistaken, only the picture's uploader can link/unlink a picture to a figurine, so only you can do it for your own pictures.

Greetings fellows, I've finally signed up, so I could post in here. I have lots of figures with boxes and was wondering if anybody would be interested in buying any.

I don't plan to sell them all, since I have favourites, but just let me know. I may consider selling some of my favourites depending on the price, if there is interest =)

I'll go take pictures now...

I don't know if I should post this here, but I have magazines/manga/dakimakura and various doujins and such if anyone is interested.

That explains everything: I didn't realize that I was logged out, so I kept refreshing and wondering why I can't see any option left and right regarding a possible referral or link.
Thanks


Still on Nendos, Mikatan has shown the support version (well rather cheerful japan version) of the Kagamine siblings.

I can't say I'm really thrilled by that considering they are basically re-sale without having a new faceplate (well, I guess the number of extra accessories isn't too shabby), but at least, it is a clear indication we might have a cheerful ver for Luka.

But the primary question is: will GSC screw again oversea customers? If I were to buy one of them, I would rather go through proxy instead...

GSC has posted an official apology on their website regarding the Nendoroid Support Miku shipping fiasco. An e-mail of this apology was also sent to the affected customers, including myself.

http://www.goodsmile.info/post/en/31...erful+Ver.html

They will be refunding the entire 2000 Yen EMS shipping cost to all the customers who ordered Support Miku from their Online Shop starting today.

I wonder if I'm too naive thinking like that, but considering the efforts poured here, it really seems to be a genuine mistake or rather "miscommunication" between the GSC and the factory/chinese branch from where they sent the packages.
From my perspective, it was already weird enough to have been answered with copy pasted engrish mails while they always answered me properly when I had questions previously.

Oh well, things look nice and dandy, although I wonder how the exchange process will turn out (shipping fee and re-shipping, and probably those who want "pristine" box, even if the nendo is intact).

Glad about the refund for the ems but even more at ease since they said they would give you a new one if it was damaged during the shipping.

GSC's screwed up real well now. 2000 yen shipping to put stuff on a boat? No, just no. Refund's cool, but I just don't want my figurines on a boat at all, even if shipping were to be free for Surface.

If these problems resurface when it comes time to send out the Madoka stuff, I'm really gonna be ruined.

I really hope no Nendoroids come in broken, and that includes boxes. I for one like my boxes to be as pristine as possible, since I keep them and I'm paranoid, lol.

I finally got around to unboxing my last shipment of figures, as I got some new backdrops for photography (card instead of cloth, no cathair sticking to it!)

and http://i.imgur.com/SIAxb.jpg was my newest nendo, which was missing a part (her red necktie/ribbon) so I improvised.

Various options of cape on/off, collar etc, I opted to display her without the collar, or the cape. Her head is rather difficult to remove, though, so I likely won't change my mind.

Lol, wow. It makes you wonder if more characters from the Marvel Universe might be getting the same treatmen.

I get my anime figures as freebee's from anime or manga magazines since I don't have much of a budget to afford awesome figures like the ones above
Some of you have really nice collections ^^
