That's nothing, at least you got it! Last month they opened my Dengeki Festival and one of them simply stole the magazine from the packing. So I only got the box containing the gift items (pillow+mousepad) but not the magazine. And now there's no chance of ordering another one, only for a double price.
Boy, was I pissed. I still am

Hooray for quoting a 4 month old post.
I normally don't buy figures but this one is just too hard to resist.
This being one of my favourite anime series as well as one of my favourite characters and also being wonderfully crafted, I don't think I could've taken no for an answer.
And so it has been pre-ordered, can't wait.

Yes, it's inside the box, behind the figure

The BRS nendo also has the DVD

I didn't pre-order b/c I don't know whether I can afford her or not. I'll decide when its released

I just got an email from Australia Post saying my Saber figure has been delivered home... And here I am stuck at work. Bring on lunch break!

EDIT:

Here we go!

Customs it seems did open the package and quite roughly too. They just tore the packaging box open but the figure was still wrapped in the tissue paper so they didn't touch the figure's packaging. Luckily.




The quality is rather good too. The only really notable difference is the hair colour. Her hair matches the colour of the two Saber Lily figures, it just looks dull compared to the vibrant yellow of the prototype.



And the Saber Tower! With Jun still on top...



Overall extremely happy with it. I'm still hanging out for a display cabinet...

Hoorah! Amiami have let me pay for my Yui Nendo, problem however. I forgot I ordered her with Hobbysearch months ago, so I've now got two I've had to pay for. So yeah, I've now got two Yui Nendo's. Might try to sell the other one somewhere and just not open it.

Woops! :X

Good looking Saber, poor box!

Now would they please get around to finishing and releasing Rin?

For reference where do you guys get your figures from, I got a couple sites I go to but I like to shop around, for price reasons.

The local store imports them for me, whereever they can get it from (but mostly HLJ)

Interesting. I've never had customs bother any of my packages from Japan, but stuff from the UK, CA and US have always been investigated.

I like to order online, but only because I can't find a reliable, quick, close store to import for me.

From what I've read they should be announcing the Saber Alter figure for pre-order in the next few weeks and with that I'd imagine Rin wouldn't be far off.

Have we seen painted images of her figure?

Delayed till December, apparently, which means it'll take me even longer to get the band complete (though then again, no official release date of ALTER Ritsu yet, so that won't happen this year anyway).

Seriously, **** this.
There is that other Mio figurine that's coming out in December + the Alter Asuka figurine, I'm thinking about cancelling something.
