Pre-owned Grab Box M Size for BoysPre-owned Grab Box M Size for Boys

MaakieMaakieIl y a 3 ansLoot
So far the Boys' grab boxes had most items to my liking, so when I saw one in stock again at AmiAmi, I ordered it with the speed of light! I received it a few days ago and was really excited to open it up!

The box

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-iyokeJmLSIw/VlYTI9gfXsI/AAAAAAAAEcQ/yW6nEyCp1iU/s912-Ic42/IMG_8780.JPG

Ahhh, this time there were no items on top to see! The only thing greeting me was the AmiAmi card!

What's inside the box?

Let's look at the items one by one!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0oJlaElVvog/VlYTKNSaKmI/AAAAAAAAEck/4wf2-2dboK0/s912-Ic42/IMG_8781.JPG

The first item in the box was this big playing mat for trading card games ITEM #370672 . I recognized the series it was from right away because I got ITEM #310860 in an earlier grab box! Also I thought "whoah that girl on the left looks like Komugi!", turns out the character designer for her is Watanabe Akio, I should have known!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-K8rREghTf7g/VlYTKw6OEGI/AAAAAAAAEcw/kqnCfeLhuD8/s640-Ic42/IMG_8783.JPG

Aww, a cute strap from Asuka ITEM #142316 ! I already thought it was probably a (local) souvenir item, it turns out she is sitting on Mount Fuji!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6qP5-qjciVQ/VlYTLXa8VzI/AAAAAAAAEc0/vDPjqzoLXIQ/s912-Ic42/IMG_8784.JPG

I was surprised to see this Kuma strap ITEM #235564 , considering I got another one from this set (Marie) ITEM #235557 in a previous grab box BLOG #25493 ! Also this one seems to be very special. It's an AmiAmi exclusive when you bought the full box of these straps.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-u6yQGRr-LEI/VlYTL7OwiRI/AAAAAAAAEc8/D4M0ccxX844/s720-Ic42/IMG_8785.JPG

Next up was a long can badge from Girlfriend (Kairi) ITEM #291090 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Yd8oLDZXlzk/VlYTMSFUG7I/AAAAAAAAEdE/hUSEboeCIEs/s720-Ic42/IMG_8787.JPG

Ah, looks like I got the matching Rei ITEM #142315 with my earlier Asuka ITEM #142316 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LdJKnJcbbP4/VlYTMwQlSOI/AAAAAAAAEdM/mLTwiY3SMPY/s720-Ic42/IMG_8788.JPG

This is a mobile phone bag/cover from Rance Quest ITEM #371595 ! Adding this to the database was crazy with the amount of characters on it.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-3xen1bM4vwU/VlYTORc9bCI/AAAAAAAAEdg/QDxzwWRG0eI/s912-Ic42/IMG_8790.JPG

A huge strap from the 10th anniversary of Type Moon ITEM #101483 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-aaGgT-h9nQg/VlYTPMTOYVI/AAAAAAAAEdo/Ie5nISaFvfk/s720-Ic42/IMG_8791.JPG

O...m....g...it's...it's...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/--xD4BHpN9LM/VlYTPCPX7-I/AAAAAAAAEdk/5S7uEiWGnhA/s720-Ic42/IMG_8792.JPG

BUFF ASUKA. ITEM #277480 Or to quote CRIMSON_DRAGON beautifully "Get ripped Shinji kun".

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9HzzUdpo_OE/VlYTQTCU_MI/AAAAAAAAEd0/y-pGzlRVsL4/s720-Ic42/IMG_8793.JPG

Seriously, almost everything is wrong with this figure. Crazy proportions, ugly joints, random visible screws...why was something like this made? Who thought this was a good idea? Did people buy this thing voluntarily? At least it gave me a good laugh to find this in my box.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lLNT6Sopc9Q/VlYUNY0pvHI/AAAAAAAAEgM/gXQscnxMFGQ/s912-Ic42/IMG_8794.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Y8-jVX7rIOs/VlYTQkZbuHI/AAAAAAAAEd4/VkKyRf0gCCg/s720-Ic42/IMG_8795.JPG

A big strap from Mami ITEM #100923 ! I used to be a Mami collector, so I feel really mixed seeing this item. She looks very cool with the big gun!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-CwiFLwiWHR4/VlYTSB7kRyI/AAAAAAAAEeA/A-ghWVS0l58/s912-Ic42/IMG_8796.JPG

An Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls Strap! I was really hoping to get Anzu ITEM #294334 , but instead I got Chieri ITEM #294336 . If someone has Anzu and wants to trade with me, please message me!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-RfWiKy_qojk/VlYTTQYMx_I/AAAAAAAAEeI/0iTrDKVF-vY/s912-Ic42/IMG_8797.JPG

Next was an Love Live! strap with Nico ITEM #143103 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Vc_6qTy1X4M/VlYTU4gA0gI/AAAAAAAAEeQ/9M1lOUJUXg4/s912-Ic42/IMG_8798.JPG

Another Love Live! item, I got Nozomi this time ITEM #202535 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-uyvkshzuRSk/VlYTV5JyUpI/AAAAAAAAEeY/1gmUr5bjUGs/s912-Ic42/IMG_8799.JPG

I always love opening up Gashapon Balls! Inside was a strap from Touwa Erio with a slice of pizza ITEM #182186 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QnmPZiebOQA/VlYTYBwdApI/AAAAAAAAEeo/dJiv16wuHP4/s912-Ic42/IMG_8801.JPG

And another one from the same manufacturer, but this time different series. It's a swimsuit Shana from Shakugan no Shana ITEM #176086 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0HmMO_HHWlk/VlYTZj6MSXI/AAAAAAAAEe8/8WVtdwIw7PE/s720-Ic42/IMG_8803.JPG

Now this was a big surprise (literally, as she was 1/4 of the box)! A completely sealed prize figure from Girlfriend (Kari) ITEM #263951 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ObxXNWORd00/VlYTaYnfyxI/AAAAAAAAEfA/nhvrBbJ8BMU/s912-Ic42/IMG_8805.JPG

I actually went a bit oh noooooo when I saw these figures as I'm not interested in Quiz Magic Academy and it took me a long time to sell ITEM #198987 which I got in an earlier box BLOG #16011 . Anyway, the one I got now is ITEM #47417 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bP-WecNdVhI/VlYTbVYboGI/AAAAAAAAEfI/BnxLTruAsGY/s912-Ic42/IMG_8806.JPG

Here is another item I got mixed feelings with. I also used to be a collector from Girls Und Panzer, but now I think want to stick to only collecting items with the military outfits. I got an strap with Isuzu Hana in her school uniform ITEM #115755 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-EI42VvMmxIQ/VlYTcmDl5BI/AAAAAAAAEfQ/REvUCmQEkjY/s912-Ic42/IMG_8807.JPG

Heh, interesting. I owned this figure in the past and now it came back to me! It's Aika from Aria ITEM #57829 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0kmVPaGnCaQ/VlYUNkIcRFI/AAAAAAAAEgQ/rhD8F8yIGLc/s912-Ic42/IMG_8808.JPG

Another Girls und Panzer item ITEM #272834 ! At first I thought it was some sort of pin or coin, but it's a magnet. Seeing the Anglerfish logo can only make me think of Voir le spoilerCacher le spoiler



https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-nt9ATU_79t0/VlYTdvpi2sI/AAAAAAAAEfY/4_nL_TRfr5g/s720-Ic42/IMG_8809.JPG

Oh, I was already trying to sell/trade this item myself... ITEM #2840 xD I don't think this set is very popular, even thought it's from Fate (that's probably also the reason AmiAmi is putting them in these boxes, I saw them with others in their blogs too).

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-a5-dsHyImTU/VlYTfMJxzFI/AAAAAAAAEfg/7WR1nHiE01k/s912-Ic42/IMG_8810.JPG

The last and very heavy item at the bottom of this box, was a mug from One Piece ITEM #119834 I think the design is very stylish!

The complete loot

Final Thoughts

This box had quite a lot less items than other grab boxes that I got before, but a lot of the items here were big, so it felt like I got a lot of stuff for my money! When it comes to personal tastes, I was actually hoping on more from Kan Colle, so I hope I can make a lot of trades with these items!

FAQ Grab boxes Please read the FAQ before replying or sending me an PM!
Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerBecause I've been getting way too many of the same questions in PM's and comments on my grab box blogs, I've made this FAQ.

FAQ #1
What is a grab box?
An box with mystery items. Depending on the store you can get all sorts of items. With people interested in figures/anime/gaming the most popular boxes come from AmiAmi, J-List and Tokyo Otaku Mode, This blog is from one of AmiAmi's boxes.

FAQ #2
How can I get a grab box?
Grab boxes are insanely popular and you have to act quick if you see them in stock at the store of your choice. It is recommendable to put an alert for the item on the webshop, keep an eye out on their main page (most stores advertise them there) and/or follow the shop newsletter.

FAQ #3
How much shipping did you pay for the grab box?
With most boxes you pay high shipping. On AmiAmi boxes you generally pay 2-3x the amount of the value on the box and that is for unregistered SAL! On J-List most people pay about the same amount in shipping as the box costs. TOM has free shipping if you buy an expensive grab box (totalling over $100).

FAQ #4
Did you pay costums for the grab box?
I live in the Netherlands, where costums starts at 22 euros. I mostly stick to AmiAmi grab boxes, where the small and medium sized boxes are in general valued at inbetween 15 and 21 euros before shipping. That way, I don't get taxes/customs. I do have to watch out with the current exchange rates. J-List and TOM boxes will always give me costums.


I hope to see you guys also at my next blog, where I will do a loot blog from a recent proxy loot I've got!

VioFitz (Il y a 2 ans) #17014810Yeah, I can see that... I really changed my mind on that Asuka... I don't know but, atleast they're not smaller than 66 action Kamen rider series. One day I might want to get 1 to check the quality, I actually have Microman Sakura Street Fighter but, she got ugly face & joint looks.

I actually didn't even manage to sell her in those 8 months time since we last spoke, that says enough about this figure... :P

I think the newer ones are better, but even with those I hear a lot of complaining. High price for the size and quality you get. :/

Maakie (Il y a 3 ans) #8921773Oh no that Microman Asuka is HORRIBLE. I'm pretty sure it's the ugliest Microman out there... The newer ones, such as the Kan Colle ones, look a lot better indeed, but I'm not so sure how nice they are to have, because they are really small for action figures.

VioFitz (Il y a 3 ans) #8840734HOLY SHIT!! I really thank you for this post, I once interested on getting those Microman Asuka for headswap purpose on my Microman ITEM #19670 but, after I saw yours I completely changed my mind.
Microman line sure got a very bad looking joints on anime series but, they innovated to create more better looking in Microman Arts line... They got better joints on love live & kancolle series, almost rival Figma or even SHF figures I think. They still around 8 or 9 cm tall but, & I don't know if they really good as they look or not since I haven't own or even touch them myself.

shinobu-nyan (Il y a 3 ans) #5286307I'm jealous of your Girlfriend Kari things XD nice box ^^
As a noob, I have a silly question: Grab boxes worth the price? I'm thinking to get a boys' one, but I don't want sexy things, I just want cute little shoujo <3
Btw, I liked all your items.


Well, if you get a boys' one, you probably get mainly shoujo's, but you could get some more sexy stuff too (I have seen people get hugging pillows in these...). It all depends on your tastes if a box is worth it to you! And I PM'ed you!

Seiidaishougun (Il y a 3 ans) #5278795It's not so much the mug (even though I think it doesn't look any good), but much more One Piece that's garbage. I can't understand how so many can like something so ludicrously retarded. Is it a case of "So horribly bad it's almost good again", like that Asuka? XD

Woah, calm down there! There are probably quite some One Piece-fans reading this too (I'm not one btw).

And yes, that's exactly the case with Asuka, I still stand by the "Get ripped Shinji-kun" part. xD

Seiidaishougun (Il y a 3 ans) #5263703That's why I always avoid grab boxes, more often than not they're just a garbage dump for the store's unwanted items XD
Plus, I really hate surprises.
The only nice items are that girlfriend figure (although lacking overknee socks), that Grisaia mat and perhaps that Girlfriend badge.
The rest... Lots of junk, One Piece garbage and that nightmarish Asuka. I would want none of that, not even for free XD


I like surprises, so for me the money is already worth the fun of unboxing something like this. :)

I don't see how that mug is garbage? But that Asuka is really entertaining garbage indeed. ;)
