You can check yourself. Highlight 'Other Currencies' just under Shipping Estimate - and see for yourself. ^^

Is there a proxy service that someone here would recommend to me?
Otherwise, I'm just going to search for the cheapest one.
Definitely let us know if it's legit, I may be interested if it is.

This Hongfire thread has some pretty good information on several proxy bidding services. They all seem to have their pros and cons but Shopping Mall Japan comes out on top depending on if you need to make a bid quickly or not.

theres this big one e2046.com based in HK, but most fsn figures aren't pre-painted, you can still check it out and drool . There were only like 3 that are pre-painted and are really expensive.

There's a Kotobukiya 1/8 Saber re-issue in May. The only things I can think of that would be coming out that late would be either Alter's Two Piece Swimsuit Saber, or T's System One Piece swimsuit, both of which have not had release dates set.

You will see many Dark Saber figures, but most of them are WonderFest only exclusives. Often limited to the ten's. If not, there's probably a resin kit or two around, where you paint it yourself.

There are only three pre-painted mass-marketed ones - Alter 1/8 Dark Saber, Good Smile Company Dark Saber in armor trading figure (about 3" or less) anda Dark Saber in PJ's. Those were limited to about 100 I believe, and sold only at Wonderfest 2006. So you'd have a incredibly hard time finding it, and pay out of the nose for it.

I just heard something about it, i'm not that sure if there will be or not. Anyway i was talking about the goodsmile one. For clayz saber look on ebay, it's plenty of them (i don't like it that much, 1/6 figures are too big for me and it doesn't seem vey detailed gallery)

there's a reissue of kotobukiya saber for sure since you can preorder it on hlj and hobbysearch

I got my 1/6 Saber (clayz) in the mail today

http://www.brcat.com/fatestaynightsaber.html

but I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad.
I can't tell it is authetic. It looks authetic except that 1) the paint job isn't perfect (i know it is probably not real "paint" since it is a pvc but I'm using that term anyway). I can see a few tiny spots on it where there is too much paint (ie tiny tiny bumps on part of the dress). 2) it is missing the hologram on the bottom right corner (i found a few pictures of the box online that shows this hologram).



I guess I can let #1 slide (since it is a pvc figure) but #2 troubles me.
Has anyone purchased any authetic Clayz products that doesn't have a hologram? Did I purchased a fake?

You're fine, the hologram isn't on the cover. And you're right, it's a problem with PVC. That's why places like HLJ have "various quality" warnings on PVC's.

I'm pretty sure the hologram was in the clayz box, a small piece about 1/2" x 1/2". But I'm not 100% sure.

This makes me wonder if the American release of Saber and the Japanese release of Clayz Saber were different, slightly (at least insofar as the placement of hologram). I got the US release, maybe those who ordered from Japan or people who had Japanese release had a different box?

Also, my Mahou Shoujo Nekomimi Tohsaka Rin figure shipped from HLJ today! Whee!
