I got that GSC version of Kurisu. It looks even better in person that all those photos did, which is usually not the case with a lot of figures. I honestly thought its pricing was fair compared to other things its size.

Speaking of pricing,
GSC's Goddess Madoka received a very 'healthy' 14000yen price tag

Considering the details and all, 14K is actually a "fair price" in contrast with other figures of the same caliber.
However, if I were one of those who are about to buy it, I would be extremely worried about the customs but more importantly, the shipping process. I wonder if GSC will put bubble wrap like they did for fig like Saber Lily distant avalon.

Kyouko get! Just got her today from the post office. Now my nendoroid Puella Magi team is finally complete!





Looks like the Madoka unreg. SAL miracle magic continued for Kyouko, as I learned that she's been sitting in the post office since May 30, and she just shipped from Japan May 22. This means she arrived in the country after just 8 days(!)

This makes her my second fastest unreg. SAL package ever after nendo Madoka (6 days), edging out nendo Homura's record to third (9 days).

Spoiler for Taken from a previous post:
Was it because I like Sayaka so much that she took the longest to reach me? (27 days)

GSC has finally revealed Ultimate Madoka, painted this time



Few more pics on Mikatan's blog. Didn't plan to buy it, but they definitely went nuts on it (and for once, the base is a bit special). They even made a CM for that
GSC really give a run for people's money.

It's not that I thought the price was unreasonable but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend it at the time. Now I regret that decision.

And wow that Godoka, I am only a casual fan of Madoka Magica but that's a gorgeous figure. Will see if Ami Ami won't sell out right away bc they will have the best price.


edit: After posting about Kurisu I found her at Mandarake for a pretty good price so ordered (I hope I did get her).

Now just to decide if I want to spend a fortune on that Ultimate Madoka. :O

Fucking Preordered! Time to think of the plans for the shrine of The Avatar of Hope.

Yeah, just under 11k barely made my limit to buy it. If it had been another 500 yen, I don't know if I'd have been able to mentally justify it.

I haven't ordered Madoka yet & not sure if I will (she will probably sell out at cheaper stores while I am debating)

But over at MFC some people did some estimates & she seems to be cheapest at Hobby Search. They are having a 50% off promotion on shipping.

I buy several figures a month, so with combined shipping I don't really take shipping costs in to account (though large orders, like this month, can sting).

She will eventually sell out, timing is the key when it comes to preordering.

Yeah not sure if I want to spend the money. It's way more than I like to spend on a figure.

The reason I want her is because I think she is a beautiful figure but she is not a favorite character and I also tend to only buy figures for characters I love. Hence why I am a bit conflicted.

This is even more critical with this figure as it is plainly advertised as made-to-order release, which means there won't be as much extra as regular scale (the fact even they do that on their official website is a big indication).

I'm actually quite torn in this case myself: I would definitely rage if they somehow release a "Ultimate Homura" (albeit I don't see it as outstanding as Madokami, I have a soft spot for her so), but even if I pre-order her, I have no clue whichever is the best course of action between Big in Japan, Hobby Search and GSC website.
Big in Japan is the only shop that allows undervalue for customs declaration, Hobby search is currently halving the shipping cost until 15th june, and GSC use their fixed 2000 yens EMS (but you are raped by a full blown 14800yen price tag).

So it is really up to the shipping cost (size and weight) and the damn customs...
Well at least, something is certain: it is EMS or Sal Parcel, and considering her value, SAL sounds like pushing your luck to no end.
