Godlike Shipping HELP!!Godlike Shipping HELP!!

This month's order is http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/98665.jpg http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/84814.jpg http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/94839.jpg

Many people have been talking of Godoka's shipping cost being around 6K+ yen. For me, I think there is some god of shipping watching over me because this is my shipping costs for not only Godoka but Milia AND the Nendo set.

3,750yen
My question is whether or not I should choose to break up the order or ship them all in one big box. Here is my email from Hobby Search after I asked about the different options I had. :D

"Thank you for your reply.

Below is the estimate of shipping cost, so please
check that.

Option A: Shipment in one big box
Items cost : 21,306yen (Madoka, Milla and Sasara)
Shipping cost : 3,750yen (50%off)
Total cost : 25,056yen

Option B: Separate shipment
[Package 1]
Item cost : 11,276yen (Madoka)
Shipping cost : 2,700yen (50%off)
Total cost : 13,976yen

[Package 2]
Items cost : 10,030yen (Milla and Sasara)
Shipping cost : 1,600yen (50%off)
Total cost : 11,630yen

Grand total for option B :
13,976yen + 11,630yen = 25,606yen

Please let us know which you prefer, thank you."


I seriously love Hobby Search.
But the question remains, what's better?

roronoa_zoro69 (Il y a 6 ans) #1294299The shipping is a killer, since you have the 50% shipping option better use it and group your order, you save up only 600 yen but that is better than nothing!
But i'm not sure you will be safe if the custom hit you, anyway good luck :)
FutSanNoShadowK (Il y a 6 ans) #1294367If this were my order I would ship Madokami alone with EMS, Milla and Sasara with SAL Small Packet. That would save me 810 yen or so.
But if you must ship everything with EMS, then combine everything to get the lowest cost.
Carmina (Il y a 6 ans) #1294411I suppose smaller packets might have more chances of escaping customs but in the end if you're shipping things EMS anyway one big packet might be just as good.

Thanks guys. I put in a combined order. I think I'll be okay with customs since it's coming to New York and it is EMS. Shouldn't be a problem I think. I guess I'll share my story if there is. haha

Plume (Il y a 6 ans) #1294562I voted "oprion B" because I have this memory stuck in my head: how I left the post office with the mother of boxes and had to hitch a cab home :))
LOL What a horrible memory. But fortunately for me, I have one of these

Raithos (Il y a 6 ans) #1294131The most I paid for shipping for one very large box was $100. I ordered ITEM #25293,I kid you not the box was 2/3 my height. I'm 6"3 if that puts things into perspective. It was MASSIVE. I could probably sit in the thing and pretend it was a boat or something with ease. Here even check my quote on the figure page:

Lol, so yeah getting a huge box is an interesting experience. But I feel that we all need to get huge boxes from time to time.
You are ready
That's incredible. But scary. I don't think the box will be that big but heck it can be as big as it wants now because the shipping is so little for so much!

iTheShirt (Il y a 6 ans) #1293991lol Now that I think about it, getting a giant box is kinda overwhelmingly nice instead of two small boxes to carry around. hahaha I'm just curious to know what experience others have had ordering very large large boxes like this. What are the chances of damage. Hobby Search packs very good too. Looks like the poll is having a very one sided answer though. I will reply to them later after midnight.

Raithos (Il y a 8 ans) #573030Just got this and I love it, but a warning... yeah it's on mandarake for 3500 and even 4000 yen, but to ship to me in Canada it was 11300 yen total (EMS) that's like 140$. So be forewarned when buying it. It's wonderful though, but just be warned. To ship it SAL would take a long time and still run you about 8000 yen+/- (which is close to 100$. ( comment/573030 )

Okay I will combine the order. I don't think I had 50% off the nendo's shipping when I ordered but I guess they went ahead and cut the price on her too. Pretty cool. I can't wait to see how big this box will be. I'm sure I'll have very little problem since it is going to a P.O. Box. It won't even be there very long seeing as I'll have one eyeball taped to the tracking updates at all times. 8D

I'll be sure to update with a loot post when I get this massive coffin of figures!

Combine. Best to get it all out of the way than to let tha pain linger.

(Shipping for my Godoka is 6100 yen. I've NEVER bitched about shipping but this was borderline obscene.)
