I will skipping the MadoKami as i cant afford 14k + shipping cost + custom cost...
Oooh the dilemma...

All my friends that collecting figures bet that she will be a rare item that can boost up to 4-5x her price tag now...

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.
Yes, customs.. I'm sure the customs in my country are salivating when they see packages from japanese online stores. Once threatened a corrupt customs employee that I know a policeman (and I do know one), with that I got some "discount" on the tax - but it's probably something that will only work once.

Anyway, the money that will be spent on November (in claiming the package at customs) is for Madoka. So I don't mind.

Well, with the current "preorder market" most figures are hardly 'overproduced'

and as most of us who've been collecting for a while noticed, there's usually nothing left on shelves at a retailer shortly after release

Figuremanufacturers are living in golden times

Develop prototype->advertise->take preorders->mass produce->sell

No need to produce more than ordered, working though 3rd party factories means no ongoing cost of labour/production

if preorders are too low to cover targeted revenue, the figures simply gets delayed
If demand exceeds production, wait and rerelease on preorder basis again
(always smart to wait for raw materials/transport costs to lower, or currency to change in your favor)

The Madoka figure won't sell out too quickly though because she is on made to order until August 1st.

I mean she might sell out at the cheaper retailers but you probably have until August to decide if you want her if you are willing to pay the GSC price.

And in the case of Excalibur Triumphant Saber, repeat this step multiple times.

Delicious Meat,
I believe it's the best one yet and it's quite cheap too



But I'll won't be pre-ordering her just yet. First I want to see the GSC version

What I do want right now is her oppai mousepad





Saber Rider is still available at AmiAmi too, with a discount!

Ah, that one. It looked really nice. I believe it's sold out in most stores now.

Heh... suggestion: always post *after* you placed the order, so that it might still be there when you try to order.

"I've placed an order for this but there may be more" - is much better idea
