Tokyo Otaku Mode: $10 off of $50 for items tagged "US Stock"

The coupon code itself is OCT2021 and is reusable until Oct. 28, 11:59PM (PST).

(I used it to finally pick up the S.H.Figuarts of Lunch :D)

I had pre-ordered Launch from BBTS, but this was a little cheaper with the coupon and already in stock. Grabbed their last one. Thanks for the heads up ^^

This is just GSC. The full Wonfest is next weekend.

GSC Xenoblade Chronicles 2 1/7 Nia
Nendo Horizon Forbidden West Aloy
Nendo Ghost 'n Goblins Arthur
Nendo Hades Zagreus
Nendo Among Us Crewmate

I'm interested in Aloy and Zagreus. Maybe Among Us Crewmate if it turns out funny.

Is that the updated list? Where's all the ero figs lol? Does that person on MFC still do one?

I believe that MFC member stopped doing the list. The one I linked to is just GSC. Other manufacturers did their own stuff a week later, but there were a lot who didn't participate since it wasn't the usual in-person event.

If you really have to see the latest ero figures, you can use MFC's search filters to find them :booty:

Reminder for the Play-Asia free shipping over $49 November campaign + 5% off with coupon NDEAL. I'm saving $15-20 per Nendo compared to ordering from BBTS (although you have to pay upfront with Play-Asia).

 

AmiAmi reports a big DHL price hike for North America:

Starting from November 25th, the price for DHL shipping will increase. Most customers should see an increase between 2-15% (depending on the country and size of the package).

For North America (United States/Canada) the average increase is approximately 17% more than the previous prices.

Instead of copying my posts from MFC's deals thread, I'll just put this here. This year's Black Friday and holiday sales start from post #45 and include Right Stuf, CDJapan, and others.

 

In general, I'll be concentrating my sale posting efforts there from now on, as it's slightly more active. If you have an MFC account and like to save money, I highly recommend subscribing to that thread. There's a Coupons thread as well. Contributions to both are always welcome.

Final day of TOM Super Sale with 25% (35% for new listings) points back for premium members.

I pre-ordered this cool (and surprisingly well-priced) TOM-exclusive Miku scale:
1220599.jpg

Along with a prize figure, total came to $155 + $36 shipping = $191. After premium 5% discount, $20 in points, and free shipping coupon (from when they failed to fulfill one of my orders earlier this year), total came to $127 shipped and $32 back in points. I saved $64 and got back more points than I used ^^

Heads up to anyone with pre-orders at Nippon-Yasan, the company has shut down. You'll need to file PayPal or credit card claims to get your deposits back.

 

I only ordered from them once back in 2012, and it wasn't a good experience.

Available in red, cyan, and black. Price is low enough that you could get more than one, but also disappointingly limited accessories.

That's interesting. I've only ordered from them once as well a few years ago and it took them nearly a month to ship and they only did so after I threatened a charge back.

As seen on CAG's front page, GameStop has some figures on sale 25% off. I grabbed Nendo Monster Hunter Female Zinogre Alpha Armor Ver. DX for $61: https://www.gamestop...oid/233719.html

 

Another good deal is Nendo FGO Assassin Shuten Douji for $49: https://www.gamestop...oid/233733.html

 

Free shipping over $35.

 

-Edit-

Amazing 30% off selection: https://www.gamestop...rch/?pmid=27826

 

My orders:

Kotobukiya 1/8 Demon Slayer Shinobu (pre-order) - $112 - https://www.gamestop...tue/306237.html

Kotobukiya 1/6 Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Mari (pre-order) - $90 - https://www.gamestop...tue/313600.html

Banpresto OPM Tornado and Hellish Blizzard - $17.49 ea (added $.99 :xb1: Mass Effect Adromeda to reach free shipping) - https://www.gamestop...tue/276758.html , https://www.gamestop...tue/295285.html

F4F Zelda Major'a Mask CE - $63 - https://www.gamestop...tue/219431.html

 

The Majora's Mask is listed as 14" but is really like 10". CE comes with light up mask and base. Mask has motion sensor feature and can be wall mounted, though uses the base to charge. Not sure if batteries or charge cable included.

Apparently Nippon Yasan has shut down?

https://www.reddit.c...ars_to_be_shut/

 

Sucks for me, I had an order of the Ithnani futa figure (NSFW) still open.

 

Earlier this year they cancelled my Neptunia Purple Heart 1/4 bunny figure too, and wouldn't give me a refund just a store credit - that's gone too.

 

I tried opening PayPal claims but they just automatically closed because it's been longer than the timeframe to open a case, despite nothing even shipping - I guess it goes from when the order was placed.

Timeframe starts whenever payment was sent. If you paid upfront, that would be when the order was placed.

 

Was your PayPal payment funded by a credit card? If so, you can try contacting the cc company to see if they'll refund your money.

It was. Worth a shot, thanks.

 

Edit/Update: I was able to dispute one charge, the Ithnani one - since I estimated a delivery date around September (this is just me guessing from the original product release date). I thought I had a more solid case for Neptune since she was in stock and just flat out never shipped, but the opposite turned out to be true.

The Purple Heart figure that was in stock on January 2nd isn't eligible because we aren't within 180 days of any estimated delivery, so they have to go off the transaction date. I'm getting a credit for one and the merchant will have a chance to respond within 7 days.. Hopefully they don't, seems like they've vanished off the face of the earth anyway.

 

Half back is better than nothing, so again thanks for the tip. It didn't seem to matter that I used PayPal, which is what I was concerned about.

 

Update 2: Got a digital letter from my credit card.. It said the merchant has refused to give me a credit and that they don't have to because of the age of the transaction. Lame.

 

Update 3: The letter mentioned in update 2 was just for one transaction, because the item was in stock at the time of order the delivery estimate wasn't close enough. I got a credit for my other order!

If you have charges to dispute I suggest you tell them the delivery estimate is recent even if the charge is old as it seemed to be the only way to get one of mine successfully disputed.

Got my GS figures from the sale (other than the pre-orders, ofc). Everything shipped separately and was well packed, especially the Nendoroid.

 

F4F Major's Mask CE is much cooler than I expected. It's 1/2 scale (I think) but still plenty big. Sculpt and paint job look great. No batteries or charger included, unfortunately. The micro usb charger I use for PS4 controller works. The base lights up plugged in without batteries and I think the mask will as well, but I'm having trouble getting the mask fully onto the base for the charging point to connect. I will need to ask someone with better hands to give it a shot.

Hefty Japan Post price increase starting June 2022: https://docs.google...._Ys7pHYwpRZSUc/

(US is Zone 4)

 

Minimum 1500yen extra per shipment, increasing with package size. Bottom line, I recommend pre-ordering domestic whenever possible.

Nendoroid Assassin's Creed Ezio Auditore (October 2022):

FIGURE-137044.jpg

 

GSC US seems to be offering a discount on him. Their price is usually a conversion of GSC JP's price at 1 JPY = 1 USD, but instead of doing 6900yen = $68.99, he is $60.99. BBTS has him for $71.99, which is what he normally would be if GSC US were $68.99.

 

Normal JP sites like AmiAmi have him for ~$50, but with the shipping price hike in June, I'm sticking with domestic shops when possible.

Is there another reliable store for Japanese figures outside of Amazon JP and Amiami? I was banned from AmiAmi after I forgot about a bunch of preorders and the payment emails went to may spam box so I can't use them but have been able to use Amazon JP for most things. But I'm trying to find the Play Arts Tifa dress version and looks like Amazon JP is sold out.

Hobby Link Japan, Hobby Search, and Big in Japan are all good. Of those, I like HLJ the most because of their private warehouse feature and the ability to cancel pre-orders without question. They also have great customer support.

 

I like AmiAmi and Amazon JP as well. I've been using Amazon JP more lately. Fair shipping prices, no Japan sales tax, wide selection, and some good deals.

Plaza Japan is a good one too, though their inventory can be spotty. Really great shipping. Here's the Tifa dress version for preorder: https://www.plazajap.../4988601357463/

 

HLJ also has it in stock: https://www.hlj.com/...ss-ver-enx35746
