I'm over 18
Hi MFC, I hope everyone is having a good/safe month despite everything that's going on in the world :( I'm lucky enough to still have my job and everything, but I just want everything to go back to normal already! And since packages can't even be sent EMS to the USA, I won't be getting many of my pre-orders any time soon. Just to make things worse :/

Package 1: Hobby Search

I made the stupid mistake again (I used to do this all the time with AmiAmi) of not combining my February orders, therefore, I ended up having two separate packages sent out. Both were Small Packet, I'm pretty sure? This was ITEM #676036, I remember I kept saying I was totally shocked she was released on time because I was definitely expecting extra coronavirus delays.

I did notice SAL was already moving pretty slowly though, I think this took over 4 weeks to come.

Package 2: Hobby Search

ITEM #731747 was another Skytube figure that was released on time. The only complaint I had was about the huge box, it had to be sent EMS, and was quite expensive. I doubt I'll ever set her up though, after reading about the paint transfers. I like to keep my figures in absolute mint condition if possible.

The front of the box also opens up and shows the drawing it's based on.

Package 3: Hobby Search

ITEM #822762 was my other February pre-order, and it took quite a while to arrive, and the package was pretty dented. People, this is why you leave space in the package between the shipping box and the figure box. Since Hobby Search did this, everything was fine.

Package 4: AmiAmi (through Ebay)

So Ebay put up a 15% off coupon (it seems like forever since they gave a coupon...) and I used it to order a few figures from AmiAmi's account. I got ITEM #822760 and ITEM #850314 since I hadn't pre-ordered either one.

AmiAmi ships the Ebay orders by EMS which was pretty nice. I really like Hachiroku, I'm not sure yet if I'll display her with my other Hachiroku from Lose, I'll have to make some more room on my shelf.

Package 5: Fakku

This month I got a few orders in from Fakku, both of which I had already paid for last year. I'm not too sure if I'll keep using them. I feel like the boxes they use for shipping are too small and I'm going to end up getting something damaged at some point, especially since I've had a few dented figure boxes from them in the past. I think I'll probably be ordering directly from Native from now on?

The first package contained ITEM #676112. After seeing all the people who got damaged Erika bunnies, being able to get replacements for damaged figures is probably another reason to order directly from Native...

Package 6: Fakku

Finally, I got ITEM #549561 in, earlier than I expected from Fakku, but I do have one question: why was this figure released on time yet ITEM #549563 and Vanilla are now delayed over 7 months? I really don't understand.

I like the concept of the slip cover for this box. Unfortunately, the slip cover on mine was damaged due to Fakku's tight packing.

Still, the box for this figure is pretty compact. And the figure is beautiful, absolutely no issues, and no delays.

I figure this might be my last loot post for a while, since Japan Post has now blocked shipping to the USA :( (except Surface). I think I will use DHL for my latest AmiAmi package since it's only 2000 yen, but I can't see being able to use them for my big packages lol. Still, we'll see how many figures actually get released on time in the next few months!

Awesome loot haul! I always forget that Fakku is another source to buy Native figures.

ITEM #676036 and ITEM #676112 looks amazing.

You really should set up Skytube Kano, she is such a stunning figure. The only paint transfer threats are in spots that will be concealed.

arparso2 mese/i fa#77739494With regards to ordering from Native to be able to get replacements for damaged bunnies: Even if you did not order from Native directly, you might still get help from the manufacturer. A few weeks ago, a damaged Maria bunny ITEM #676111 arrived from Nippon-Yasan with one ear broken off. I contacted GSC (since Native is their NSFW branch) and after 2-3 days of processing my request, they were happy to sent a replacement for free.
Of course, there is no guarantee that this will work - just a reminder that you can try this route if your other options are exhausted, no matter where you ordered from.
Oh yeah, and great loot! Have a few of these figures myself and love them. You should reconsider about not taking out ITEM #731747 - she looks amazing fully assembled and easily ranks near the very top of my collection. Easily one of Skytube's best so far.

Actually, it's true GSC will help with replacements for Nippon Yasan, they replaced my Love is War Miku that I got from NY. I didn't realize they would replace things from Native though. Still, Fakku packages things in a way that the boxes often get dented and I'd prefer to avoid that too.

Tbh I don't unpack most of my castoff figures because I am extremely clumsy and prone to breaking them, and last time I broke one it triggered a whole self harm episode. I read about all the paint transfers with this one so that's going to be a no for me. I like to keep my figures in mint condition.

FigyourEd2 mese/i fa#77738859Nice haul!
I'm also disappointed that Native's Chocola and Vanilla got delayed, yet again, especially when I knew it was only a matter of time that EMS would also suffer from grounded flights due to COVID-19 and prayed they'd slip through the window before it closed.

IKR, I don't know why Park Girl came out 1/20 and Chocola and Vanilla were supposed to come out 12/19 and delayed...maybe one of them wasn't ready and Native didn't want to release one without the other?

Either way though, yeah, I guess it's no use worrying about it now since EMS isn't available, I'm already disappointed I got charged for ITEM #549556 and ITEM #745657 but now I won't be getting them any time soon.

Thanks for reading!
