Thinking about selling/trading ~Part 1~450


A riguardo

Note regarding selling/trading:
I am currently downsizing my collection and selling a huge amount of figures and merchandise! For feedback and currently active sales you can check out my eBay www.ebay.com/us... or send me a message on here if something from my selling lists that catches your eye!


Hello! My name is Maakie, originally from the Netherlands and nowadays living in Finland. I'm a huge fan and collector of Baccano! and I try to get my hands on everything from this franchise! My other great love is Mecha Musume, where I especially love the older designs of Humikane Shimada, but I also like newer franchises such as Kantai Collection and Strike/Brave Witches. More recently I have gotten into a Dorohedoro obsession, which I am expecting to take over more of my collection soon as well. I also have a soft spot for everything from Chrono Crusade, artist POP, Yu-Gi-Oh! season 0 and Duel Monsters, Nurse Witch Komugi and horror games and movies. Next to that I still have some side-collections that are dear to me and hard to let go of!


In my free time I like working on all kinds of crafts, buying stuff for this hobby, DDR/Stepmania, games, reading, writing, photography,(J-)fashion, hanging out with friends, visiting theme parks, museums and traveling to all kinds of places I've never been before.


In the past, I used to be a huge collector, buying almost anything I liked. Nowadays these are my collecting goals:
- Baccano!
- Dorohedoro
- Mecha Musume: Humikane Shimada older Mecha Musume works --> Strike Witches --> Kantai Collection (mainly Fubuki and Abyssal Girls)
- Horror collection (horror anime/games related items: mainly Calne Ca, Kotobukiya Bishoujo, Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Evil Within)
- Moetan, POP works/designs in general and items from ElectromagneticWave
- Nurse Witch Komugi and other Akio Watanabe works
- Chrno Crusade
- Ymir from Queen's Blade
- Yu-Gi-Oh! (Original series and Duel Monsters)
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (the first game)
- Hideyoshi Kinoshita
- Myuutsu/Mewtwo items
- Military moe / Girls in uniform (such as Youjo Senki, So Ra No Wo To, Girls und Panzer etc.)


This also means I'm selling/trading a lot of items I used to have in my collection that don't fit these criteria anymore. Please check out

which will get a lot of updates!


I used to be very active in giving lectures, Q&A's and workshops at conventions in the Netherlands and surrounding countries (and sometimes even a bit further away). I'm not sure if I will pick this up again as my emigration has been a very busy period, next to all what happened in...2020. At this moment I only have one announced event (of which I am also not certain yet if I can attend and if it will take place) and I'll try to keep below list updated.

Announced soon-to-give events:
Bootleg/Fake Is Sad Lecture at Animefest 2022


Things I still need to do for my profile:
- List all the games I own (listed most that are in the database, but have a long list of things I should add myself).
- List all the art books I own (work in progress).
- Index my t-shirt collection and also add it on here.
- Make proper lists for the main franchises I collect from and also display them on my profile.


I like to write reviews and articles about figures, so be sure to check my blog on here: profile/Maakie/...

My blog, things I'm working on right now:
- More entries for my 'Maakie's Collection' blog types
- Multiple figure reviews and unboxings
- Walktroughs of multiple completed Garage Kits
- Multiple big order loots
- Blog about my progress of my Ymir cosplay

~Let me use this last bit of my profile to show off my favorite anime character!~

Jacuzzi from Baccano! is tough, kind and a person you can rely on, everything one can aspire to be.

Together with his girlfriend Nice they are my favorite anime couple. Feel free to talk to me about Baccano! at any time, I can never stop rambling about this franchise.


You will open a can of worms though






Yeah you have a point! In the first movie Josef seems off but we don’t know the extent of his insanity or even how much he’s lying about (but I love that the first thing he made Aaron tape was tubby time lol, that escalated fast). Then in Creep 2 we know his MO so we’re just waiting for him to snap, but he still keeps throwing us off with his lies. I also forgot to mention, one of my favorite lines from the sequel was after Josef talked about how Aaron saw the axe and then he killed him with it, and Sara was like “does that mean you’re going to kill me with the blender?” XD I saw a bad horror movie before where someone was killed with a blender so…you never know!

The Call was such a rollercoaster! The Netflix description said MC was on the phone with a serial killer from the past so I was like, huh? Can’t be this girl who loves Seo Taiji… Though I thought it was pretty funny how she put posters of him all over the house after she killed her mother, that should’ve been enough cause for the police to investigate! XD I didn’t get why MC lied about her mother starting the fire that killed her father though?? But I did like how she came to appreciate her mother, she was so focused on blaming her for her father’s death even when she was sick which I thought was pretty cruel. :(

That gif is so cute!! “The Swedish name of The Groke (Mårran) was actually a word Tove and Viveca used to describe hatred towards homosexuality.” This is deep underneath all the cuteness. I didn’t even know Tove had a female partner when it was illegal in Finland. :o And even her father’s death affected the story, wow. I find it so interesting when personal experiences affect writers like that, though off the top of my head I can only think of how JoJo Part 5 was darker than the others because Araki was depressed at the time, and how the original Evangelion series was super dark for similar reasons. Even a series like Moomin which could’ve thrived off the cuteness of its mascots went so deep though, I love that… But then I totally would’ve been one of those readers who asked her to give the Groke a friend. XD

It’s still hard to tell where Dai Dark’s story is going tbh, but I definitely don’t mind Q taking it slow! As far as I can tell there’s no huge mystery like Dorohedoro yet, but the journey is really fun/hilarious. :D I try to be choosy with books too but only because I want to save more space for games lol. I didn’t even think about how difficult it would be to move a bunch of them… :o Oh man I hate when anime are overshadowed by others that just have a lot of hype around them. The Tokyo Ghoul anime wasn’t even good. :( I try to ignore those karma rankings on reddit now because they just piss me off lol. Like “how is this garbage more popular than this masterpiece??” XD

Whoa you even get a work memo about it! :o Do you get a lot of snow too since you’re so far north? You can text me where you went cuz now I’m curious! XD

In Twisted Wonderland it’s usually the head of each dorm that represents the main villain of the movie the dorm is based on, and the others represent the lackeys. So Queen of Hearts house has the card soldiers of each suit, Ursula house has the eels Jade (Jetsam) and Floyd (Flotsam), Evil Queen house has Rook Hunt (the hunter) and Epel (the poisoned apple)… Okay that last one isn’t really based on a lackey lol, but that’s the gist of it. There are so many Disney references and you even get to meet Mickey Mouse… The fact that Donald and Goofy are even mentioned in this game really threw me off. XD I really liked Lego games too! Which ones did you play back in the day? Recently I’ve only played the Marvel ones and they’re still good IMO but man these games are so much bigger… It’s taking me forever to get through freakin Lego Avengers lol.

Oh boy, PUPs… I made a rule for myself not to buy any because I know with their size and quality (even though some turn out looking pretty good), I’d probably just end up selling them… Not to mention their bases aren’t really my taste. I’d take the clear discs they have in the prototype pictures over the colorful hexagons… But I get the appeal I guess, it’s easier to collect a set of characters when they’re that cheap and don’t take up too much space. I’d just rather have scales or Nendos from GSC… But speaking of cheap figures, I kinda want this ITEM #1343748 >_< Look at his chubby little claws aww. I’m still so weak for the toon monsters…

Ja, het probleem met de studentenkaart is ook opgelost - heb er eigenlijk nu twee :')
Ik ga eerlijk zijn: ik voel me niet op mijn gemak in de klassen zelf, omdat de rest natuurlijk meteen hun masker afdoet (tenzij de professor expliciet zegt dat het mondmasker op moet) en er zijn er bij die serieus zitten te hoesten. De cases zijn hier ook weer flink aan het stijgen (we zitten al aan 4000 per dag) en meer en meer gevaccineerde eindigen in het ziekenhuis omdat het vaccin blijkbaar na zes maanden al niet meer echt werkt (longarts van mijn mama wist dat te vertellen; dat is ook waarom ze waarschuwde dat we onze mondmaskers moeten blijven dragen).
Ik had nog altijd liever online lessen gehad, zowel voor mijn mama's veiligheid als voor het feit dat ik dan niet telkens twee of drie uur kwijt ben met te reizen =_= Ik heb zoveel werk elke week dat ik zelfs niet veel aan mijn masterpaper zelf kan doen.

De douane heeft me hier al zo vaak gekloot dat ik gewoon het geduld niet meer heb om langer dan twee weken te wachten - zeker als ik al betaald heb en het pakket al lang bij mij thuis had moeten afgeleverd zijn :')

Sorry was heel de dag op de universiteit en had een heel late klas ^^;

Ik hoop dat je sneller antwoord krijgt van de douane daar dan dan ik krijg van de mijne hier .-. Of nog beter zou zijn als je gewoon je pakket krijgt natuurlijk ^^;

Ja, het was echt belachelijk goedkoop nu! Dus heb er maar gebruik van gemaakt XD

Maakie2 mese/i fa#99434660Hi, nice to hear from you again! :)
We both had our first ones and they went well. We will both have our 2nd ones next month. Apparently the side effects of the 2nd one are worse, so let's see how it goes. For Summer both of us just worked all of it, we have 2 weeks off in October and try to have some time off early next year, hoping that it might be possible we either visit our family or our family can visit us.
Our original idea for the 2 weeks in October was to finally (because we would be fully vaccinated) do a bunch of things from our to-do list we avoided because of the pandemic. So things like clothes and furniture shopping in busier areas in the city. But currently pandemic-wise things are not going well (we hit our highest ever corona numbers earlier this week), so we have no clue if we can do that at all. Plan B would be to rent a car and go into nature here, which should be a safe vacation even with pandemic, but they open and close borders a lot here so we will have to see if that is possible as well... I guess Plan C is just staying indoors for 2 weeks and play games haha. I do hope we are able to do something as we waited more than 1.5yrs to get vaccinated...
I know (unfortunately) of quite a lot of people that have been on planes since March 2020. That is because there are special rules if you want to visit home country or family, or have something like a funeral, wedding or the like. The reasons we are not doing that is next to the danger it brings to our family, there is a chance we will not be able to go back to Finland for a long time if we would do. This is because we still have Dutch nationality, we only live in Finland. So international travel could mean we would be (temporarily) get send back to NL for a while or we get stuck in NL and not let back in to FI. I've seen things like that happen to a lot of coworkers who would be stuck in their home country for weeks/months after visiting family. I don't want to go through that stress and uncomfort (because then I would also either have to book an expensive hotel or be with family to work from their places). Bills and other responsibilities would pile up in our FI apartment as well, so not being able to go back to FI for weeks/months would be horrible.
Weather has been strange here as well. We had a heat wave in July and after that ended nothing but rain. Normally it should be here 20-25 degrees with sun, but it's more like autumn weather unfortunately.
That's too bad to hear about the pandemic not going well there. I thought Australia had quite a good way to keep covid out with not allowing much travel, do you know why the numbers are higher?
Most European countries pandemic is not going well either, with the main reason that a lot of people still decided to go on a foreign vacation. That kind of behavior just makes the pandemic last longer, especially because a lot of people have no or only 1 vaccination now. The situation is a lot worse than 1 year ago summer when they were a lot more strict on checking borders and such.
With conventions I was actually thinking of quitting going to them to be honest. I had many years of fun with them, but even before the pandemic I got interested less in them. Now with the pandemic and all of them canceled I don't feel like returning to conventions even if after everything cools down.
I didn't even know Nier had a mobile game. Is it fun?
Thank you very much for liking the work on the cosplay. :) At this moment it is almost finished.
Yeah definitely a lot more people are working on garage kits now and posting progress. I am curious if they will continue with the hobby once the pandemic is over.
She is indeed 1/4 scale and sold for only 16K yen...my max I could bid was 15K as that was my budget at the time. I still regret not being able to go up to at least 20K for her. I doubt I'll ever see it for sale again.
I have quite a big part of my collection not on display, but I also want to sell quite a lot as my collection got too big. Unfortunately shipping to other places in the world from here is so expensive, so I am really stuck to try to find bulk buyers. :(
The easiest way to get quick and good feedback on eBay is to be a buyer. But yeah nowadays I barely buy anything on eBay anymore as most sellers are American or Chinese and I need to pay customs on their goods.
I remember from some polls here about what kind of blogs people like, most people go for discussion topics or loot blogs. So in general reviews are getting less popular. And thanks, depending on what kind of stuff I can write about I will make blogs. :) I have been buying a lot less figures lately and with that also have a lot less to review. When I buy goods and clothes I mostly keep it to loot blogs.
Well, we had to cancel our Okinawa vacation in 2020, so that would be the first thing I would want to re-book. However, Japan is going very slow with vaccinations and they don't expect to be open for any kind of tourism until late 2022/early 2023. :/
I got it! But I am still writing on the blog for it, will maybe be up next week. :)
My experience with second hand wall scrolls is very mixed, they are either way under retail or way above retail. Not really anything inbetween. My fav YGO character is Malik! :)
LOL don't worry about it, just because it's a fav of mine doesn't mean you must need to look into it. :) And yeah I haven't bought anything from my eBay sales in months, so I have enough money for when the pre-orders open on August 14! I hope I am fast enough though as only 800 pieces are going to be made...
Oh! So that is the drawing for your profile picture! I like the colored version a lot. :) Do you still draw a lot or want to pick it up again?
Even with the higher prices, figure collecting has gotten a lot more popular. Also it seems like a lot more items are made in limited releases compared to before. And then also like you said, factories in China have a hard time to keep up, especially in the pandemic.
That is a nice deal on those Touhou Nendoroids! Are they all ones you didn't have before or are some duplicate?
Hrmm hard to say which my favorite anime movie is. I used to be really into Ghibli, nowadays I barely watch anime movies and watch series mostly.
Oh! Is that some kind of reward of free vacation days because of your 10 year employment there? Congrats. :)
That is so nice to hear. :) I think my oldest memories go back to me being super excited about Pokémon and being in the first Pokémon hype of the late 90's and early 00's. Everybody playing the Game Boy games and using linking cables, trading the cards during lunch break at school etc.

Hello, such a long time betweem replies Maakie, Replying to what you mostly sent me because Im a bit OCD like that trying to honour with a reply.

Sorry I hope you and your husband are safe and going well, as well as the second dose. Since I am writing this mid October, did you get the time off yet and accomplish what you wanted to do, if so how did it go? I hope Covid cases have gone down. Fortress Australia's plan which worked well in 2020 hasn't worked that well in 2021, in Victoria one of our states we had our highest numbers ever, which were 3 times the all time high for Australia last year. Wow I guess it has been a little more then 1.5 years since the pandemic has come out, it has certainly changed the world. Are Vaccines in short supply in Finland? Over here in Australia we are starting to get free bookings which people don;t want to take even though being late out of the blocks. Since we have been hit relatively lightly compared to the western world there is some vaccine hesitancy here. Its just the two most popular states, NSW and then Victoria which have had covid problems.

If you can get to nature that would be really good. Does Finland have good Autumn leaves?

Yeah at the moment even though Australia has just opened up to international travel starting November you can fly out to another state of Australia from Western Australia but not get back into Western Australia. which is like your situation in Finland. Yeah best not get into the situation where your sepearted from the country which you work in. Interesting to hear about the weather in Finland, as that counteracts Perth's strange winter this year. Finland is like an icy place, it isn't suppose to have tropical rain in summer time. How is the covid situation in Europe. I haven't looked into case number and deaths. What I do is watch the bike races and only very few of the specators were wearing masks, I guess people there are complacent now. What's your updated feeling of the situation, as Europe/Northern Hemisphere starts to head into winter.

Yeah Nier game is okay. Story wise it is beatiful and it deals with alacart stories within a story so it is always engaging, when you engage hard mode the story is extended. The gameplay is very brute force without too much stratergy. It takes second fiddle for me to Touhou Lost word but it is somewhat fun to build up characters. Lost Word it feels that proper tactics > Stats, but Nier its Stats > tactics.

Since the last time you messaged me back, Im afraid shipping costs have increased. Well there are less flights now. And i have noticed more ships parked up waiting to be unloaded at our ports. Sorry to be such a downer, inflation in real life is also become a problem. (Scale anime figures, figmas and Nendoroids have been inflating well before covid as well though)... I was curious are people offering good interest and prices for your collection. I imagine you would have lots of hard to find items. I know there are algorhymns with Google, youtube ect but those are from what i can disern are politicised. Its a bit of a jumpt to take it to Ebay, but it is uderstandable in hindsite as that site wants to make money as well.

Ah with the 1/4 garage don't give up home, keep looking. Im sure it will come up again, but good that you keep within your limits. I found the handdrawn OP1 of Yowamushi pedal on Bilibili after searching for it 5 years after I saw it and it was deleted on youtube, www.bilibili.co.... Reimu got a PUP figure recently, ITEM #1325984, im going to get that over the expensve 1/8 lost word scale. I think PUP range has a larger hope getting a large range of figures over the 1/8 scale lost word.

Ah darn, Okinawa 2020? What had you planned to do there, and would you have visited the mainland while you were there as well. Yeah pity about Japan opening so late for tourists, but the Japanese have to do the best for the Japanese, Im personally okay with that having taking many holidays to Japan.

Yeah i guess with article blogs are easy to read and are relatable and people would write a comment because of that, I still think hard work should be rewarded.

Malik, i didn't like him at first (watching the english dub, but really warmed to him after his evil side came out). I thought it was quite a writing twist for him as his normal human side starts off as evil. and its only when the evil presence takes control he seems to turns good. Did you watch the Dub or Sub of Yugioh by the way? I am startig to really apperciate the anime as it had some really good art work and ideas. Have any of your second hand wall scrolls turned out spoiled or faded?

Thank you for Iku's drawing, I sharpied the sketch and then coloured it in with paint to make it seem she is at a disco. Unfortunately I don't have time to draw a lot these days, I would do so if i had nothing to do but the to do list has really increased for me, so unless a friend tells me lets draw, I won't do it. Kinda like i used to do long distance running but unless a friend says lets run I won't go running by myself. Yeah there was that notice from GSC that their factories had reached full capacity and they couldn't make more Hololive/other Nendoroids. I think things have settled down now though.

No Nendoroid Duplicates, yeah it was great helping out other aussies offloading their collections. Have you bought locally off others here on Ebay?

Haha your different then me, i have gone down from 12 series/season of anime a year down to 1. But i watch a lot of anime movies, going to the cinemia and watching them with my friends after work bear in hand, So i have gone from 1 to like 5 a year. Yeah A Silent Voice has really grown on me, but Your name has lots of nostalga as stuff like that with the metor and body swapping can only be performed in the animated realm compared ot a live action movie.

Yeah holiday to Exmouth which was a 2 day drive from perth (and that was only a 1/3 of the coast line of the state of Western Australia) , I had a really good time. I still had to take annual leave but was advised to do so by work. I had a good time with a friend travelling there who i had known half my life, after I had gotten into university. Haha Pokemon, thats my first major anime memory as well. We got the TV show first here in australia and the games came later, once they came out everyone was playing them at school on their gameboys for about half a year. Then the cards came, Ash gave away Charizard, pokemon became unpopular and then hummed away in the background and then in 2016 seemed to come really popular after that.

After getting back from Exmouth I have a cushy job in our office in the cit instead of being onsite so its great being able to ride to work each day, work less hours a day, and having each weekend in Perth.

Take Care and have a great weekend, Sazako.

Ah 19 kilo, ja, dan lopen de shipping costs wel op LOL Mijn pakketten bij de proxies wegen nooit zoveel, dus de shipping costs zijn nog nooit zo hoog geweest LOL Dan kan ik wel begrijpen waarom je voor surface ging. Ik hoop dat jouw pakket snel arriveert, though. Ik zou niet eens weten hoe je daar een klacht zou voor moeten indienen :/

Nee geen Naruto spulletjes; verrassend genoeg hadden ze totaal niets van Naruto. Nee, in plaats daarvan heb ik een aantal Yuri on Ice spullen zoals een parka en twee mugs, een yaoi manga, een anthology en een drama CD van een yaoi manga ^^ Het is al in shipping progress, dus ik hoop het ergens volgende week of ten laatste de week erna aan te krijgen als dit pakket hetzelfde patroon volgt als de vorigen. Want tot nu toe is CDJapan onder de radar kunnen doorslippen bij de douane, dus ik hoop dat dat zo blijft LOL

Okay so I watched the Creeps and I liked them, but just like you, I especially liked the first! I found Aaron way more relatable than Sara (and by Aaron I mean old Aaron lol) and it had more unsettling moments as opposed to the sequel IMO (like Josef blocking the door while wearing the wolf mask, yikes!), but the sequel was still fun. I just couldn’t stop thinking “what the hell is going on in your head girl??” XD The sequel also felt like it had more comedy, but to be fair Josef/Aaron had his comedic moments in both lol. “Did I freak you out with my rape story?” “Did I freak you out by hanging myself?” Like…dude. XD Also saw there’s going to be a third movie so I’m looking forward to that now! ^^ And I watched Sinister a while ago but I remember liking it! If it’s on Netflix again I should make someone rewatch it with me hehe. I also watched the Call but I’ll save my thoughts on that for another time cuz this is getting long lol.

That Moomin art still looks so eerie though! But I did some research and I guess that thing is the Groke? “She seeks friendship and warmth, but she is declined by everyone and everything, leaving her in her cold cavern on top of the Lonely Mountains.” What… My heart. :( DON’T KILL HER, GUTS, she’s just misunderstood!!

Hmm the only newly announced figures that I’m interested in are an Idolish7 Nendo and ITEM #1326013 , everything else was just prototypes for figures I already had my eye on. Which is fine by me because I’m already overwhelmed lol. I keep telling myself I’m going to slow down too… ;__; Looks like I’m not the only one with a lot of orders though haha, I didn’t even know Dorohedoro got prize figures! :o And still so much Dorohedoro clothes! At this rate are you going to end up dedicating a spot in your closet to it? I think it’s earned it lol.

I read the second volume of Dai Dark and then I read ahead to the third… ^^’ The comedy is so great! I’ll try to make this one of the few series where I actually manage to collect all the volumes lol, just have to support/encourage Q’s wackiness. XD I saw the pre-order for the third volume is actually a top seller on the site I order manga from already! I hope it’s equally as successful in Japan. :D Is there any other manga you’re keeping up with atm?

Lol this was a few years ago now but a friend saw me playing Love Live in a college class so she recommended School Live to me… I guess that gave me the impression that it would be cute. XD I never heard of it before that which is upsetting, it deserves more attention. You made me curious about that building though so I looked it up… “The series has heavily implied that the Randall Corporation is behind the zombie virus and outbreak in Japan, and they also just so happen to be an Expy of The Umbrella Corporation” ahaha you called it. XD

Half a year of sunlight and half a year of darkness?? This sounds like a fantasy setting. :o Are you sure you haven’t stumbled into an isekai? XD I can’t imagine though, that sounds like a big adjustment. Like I’m low on vitamin D even without half a year of barely any sunlight lol… Is the weather in the Netherlands more normal?

A Twisted Wonderland anime was just announced for Disney+ and I have so many questions. :o But I won’t spoil anything just in case haha, my favorite character has to be scrappy hyena boy ENTRY #198342 , though he was my first SSR card so I had an initial bias toward him. ^^’ He’s mischievous and sneaky but he comes from poverty so he’s always looking out for his own, like taking food from the school with him when he goes back home so the other kids can eat. So sweet. ;__; ENTRY #198334 , ENTRY #198562 , ENTRY #198336 , and ENTRY #198340 also have really interesting arcs! Now I’m really curious to see this all animated… Just hoping it’s not limited to Japan like everything else involving this series. :(

Koto is a good one! They’re definitely one of the best (if not the best?) in terms of price/quality ratio, and their variety is fantastic too. What other company would think to do horror icons and My Little Ponies as anime girls? Lol but yeah you got it, Nendos have taken over my collection so it has to be GSC. They also have some nice scales that aren’t too ridiculously priced… But mostly Nendos lol. At least you can justify the price of that Dorohedoro statue with its value! It’ll for sure be sought after for years to come, so think of it as a very pretty investment. :D

Waarschijnlijk draait het dan om geld: zoals je zegt, mensen vervoeren levert meer op qua winst dan pakketten.

Ik heb geen idee wanneer je een surface pakket officieel als verloren mag rekenen. Ik vertrouw de douane voor geen meter hier, dus ik kies altijd EMS (een zeldzame keer Fedex als ik iets bij CDJapan bestel dat veel weegt zoals een manga serie) om mezelf in te dekken. Op die manier kunnen ze niet zomaar een pakketje van me doen verdwijnen onder het mom dat het ergens is "kwijtgeraakt".

Ik heb nog nooit Neokyo uitgeprobeerd, hoewel ik er wel over nagedacht heb. De enige proxy services dat ik tot nu toe heb gebruikt zijn CdJapan en Personal Shopper Japan en van beide kan ik niet klagen LOL Verkies zelfs de persoonlijke shopper, gewoon omdat zij het snelst reageert en zelfs in haar vrije tijd voor mij bestellingen plaatst - zelfs om 1 uur middernacht daar!
Talking about proxy: kreeg vandaag een email van CDJapan dat ze een hoop proxy items in de sale gooien. Een discount van 90% kan wel tellen :') Heb er meteen gebruik van gemaakt XD Shipping en de extra fees maakten het natuurlijk wat duurder maar ik heb toch 11 items kunnen scoren voor 13 euro.

Ik heb me dat al een tijdje zitten afvragen, aangezien dat is wat DHL doet. Misschien heeft het iets te maken met hun tank of zo? Heb eigenlijk geen idee waarom ze gewoon niet meer pakketten meenemen dan.

Mind, ik baseer me op de nieuwsartikels dat ik toen heb gelezen en daarin legde ze uit hoe belangrijk dat gebied is voor de zeevracht. Een kwart lijkt niet veel natuurlijk, maar er zijn ook schepen die een hele omweg hebben genomen toen juist doordat ze niet meer door het Suezkanaal geraakten.
Latere berichten maakten allemaal gewag van tijden die konden oplopen tot drie of vier maanden nu, maar ik weet er het fijne niet van.

Nu moet ik zeggen, mijn eerste ervaringen met mijn personal shopper was stukken beter dan de proxy die jij uitprobeerde :/ Ik heb haar nooit moeten emailen voor updates - eerlijk gezegd schokte ze me toen ze al na een paar dagen de spullen had gekregen en foto's had doorgestuurd! En dan heeft het maar twee dagen op z'n hoogst geduurd voor ze het pakket opstuurde.
Spijtig dat jouw ervaring zo slecht was en dat je het pakket nog steeds niet hebt :/

I knew animecore was a thing, but I did not realize there was any sort of uptick in the demand for early 2000's anime merchandise.

Part of me hopes that the crazy increase in cost of new figures is in someway linked to the pandemic, as that would imply that prices will eventually at least plateau. The inflation in costs has definitely changed my buying tendencies, and it's caused me to pass on some items I normally would have preordered with a thought. A good example is ITEM #676072. For 15000 yen plus 4000-5000 yen shipping, I would have preordered that in a second, but for 23000 yen plus shipping (or $300 from a US reseller), it's really hard to see the value even if it is a character from one of my favorite artists.

Gezien het feit dat ze dit al jaren plannen en beloven lijkt corona mij een zwak excuus nu. Zeker omdat ze in volle pandemie nog steeds mensen op vakantie lieten/laten gaan met het vliegtuig.

Het hangt er ook van af welke route de schepen volgen natuurlijk; ze gaan niet allemaal langs het Suezkanaal. Ik geloof dat minder dan een kwart daardoor moet? Maar dat oponthoud van meer dan een week heeft er voor gezorgd dat alles vertraging opliep en dat heeft al zeker niet geholpen met het containertekort.

JFC, dat lijkt wel de service van Nippon-Yasan als ik moet afgaan op de berichten op dit forum O_o Dat is gewoon weg belachelijk hoeveel moeite je al hebt moeten doen gewoon voor wat spullen
