How many of you are interested in buying things from Wonder Festival 2010 Winter?
15 Jan 2010 14:21:50

I've a friend who's in Japan, who offered to buy and ship some limited figures from Wonder Festival, coming up on February 7th. He's asked me to see if anyone else that I know would also like to order stuff from it.

Strictly unofficial in that he has no guarantees that he'll get the figure, and you will have to pay him in advance if you want something. There's also going to be surcharges involved.

I do realize that this might smell a bit fishy, but nonetheless, the offer's out. I can't exactly make this look not shady, because from others' point of view, it is :D

I'm thinking about figma Ui now.
But thing is, I'm not really sure I want her. If I get Ui, I'll be obliged (it's all in my mind, but anyway) to get my hands on all figma K-On girls.
And I don't really like the series (dropped on a 3d ep), I just like the character design very much^^
Sooo~ how much will his services cost?^^

He still hasn't straightened the price out yet. Basically threw around numbers like 10k yen per person minus shipping, but I'm guessing he'll almost immediately change his mind after seeing the number of items he may need to go for...

that must mean 10000 yen? Then I'll pass, I think^^
I did a little googling, and found a proxy that'll accept preorders on Ui for June, when she'll be sold in a GSC online shop. The seller wants 4000 yen for her, with basic price 2500.
I'd rather wait till June^^ Or just pass on all K-On girls (haven't decided yet)
But I think if I wanted some rare scaled PVC, I would've accepted this.

Yep, the price is fair for me only because I'm planning to buy quite a number of figures.

You're already decided, which ones you want? It's interesting (if you have some time to spare, pics'll be cool^^)

You've seen three of them already: the Snow Miku and Mio/Ritsu nendroid pair. The other ones are :

and

WSC #050 from

I'm a sucker for Ashito Oyari's drawings, and also like the general look and feel of WSC #050.

First, I myself am also interested in the Ui Figma, but I'm not asking someone to order it for me just yet (since I don't really need it).

Second, when it comes to K-On, the show does get somewhat better as it goes on (episode 3 is probably one of the weaker episodes BTW).

Yeah, do agree with the second note. I was pretty bored at the beginning and continued to watch only because of local fandub team asked me to dub one of the girls, but got charmed after a couple of series :)

So you think I should continue with the series?
I once had the same thing with ToraDora! I dropped it on 3d or 4th ep, and then when it was complete I've seen many positive reviews and decided to continue watching. In the end I liked the show very much.

I think you should give K-On another shot.

After all, the "band" aspect of the show begins to pick up after episode 3 (not to mention there's still a couple of characters that still need to be introduced).

Ah, Eld, you're most kind!
Hm... I'm still trying to make my mind. K-ON nendo girls are cute, but getting just two of them won't satisfy me. They really should announce all 4 (or 5) together :/
So I'll probably end up passing on them this time Q_Q

I'm interested in Figma Ui, my concern is if I pay up front and this guy doesn't deliver will I get my money back? I have other middlemen groups I can always turn to, but if your friend is reputable I wouldn't mind going with him if he wants to make a bit of extra cash.

He's someone I knew prior to him going to Japan, so I assume him to be trustworthy. However, when you do get your money back, it'll be deducted by around 6% due to how Paypal does things (3% to and back, surcharged per transaction) on top of whatever lost during money conversion. I'm not sure how he's actually going to handle this yet.
