Yeah, proxy I use specified in their covid warning that Japan Post is buried in shipment and that big delays are to be expected. Sounds to me like a perfect scenario for packages to get lost in the shuffle. Not gonna take that risk


You would think so, but organization is something Japan somehow excels at... despite the chaos and over complicating of everything done the Japanese way. We'll see... but I would rather my packages be stuck in Japan Post purgatory than USPS anything.

Well the figure did release on time. $56 EMS vs $108 DHL (3 figures total in the order so it is fairly heavy). Might be a bit too steep for me to go with DHL.

Ah, interesting. The proxy themselves on their site mention the possibility of lost items, which is why I mentionned it. But maybe they're being overtly careful in covering themselves and maybe there's no real risk. I'll think about it

Only about $100 actually, but still bad. Turns out I would need to just wait if I picked the other shipping options. Not really in the mood for that (plus who knows when it clears up) so I swallowed the crap pill. $274 total that originally I had budgeted $220-ish for.
