Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

cool, what service did you use to bid/ship to SG?

Used http://buyee.jp/ after reading from advice given by people in the market watch thread. Was recommended by Major Focker ^ Lol.

It seems the easiest to use out of all the proxies that I've read on and doesn't require a deposit for you to bid on. You only pay when you win something unlike others that requires deposit. That was main reason why I used it. There may be another proxy that does this but I haven't seen any.

Total bidding + commissions, etc goes up to 16700 yen. Shipping to SG not known yet. I'll only find out when it gets to their warehouse which they say make take up to two weeks depending on seller.

I won the auction at 21263JPY/~270SGD. After Buyee fees+shipping+package protection, final total was 28409JPY/~360SGD. I could've saved roughly SGD20 on shipping by excluding the package protection, but I had no idea how well the original seller packed it for shipping :(

Elapsed time: 4-5 Days. I won the auction on the 27th, it arrived at Buyee yesterday and could've been shipped by EMS then but I added package protection which took 1 business day. So, it should arrive in SG around Sunday/Monday I suppose.

To compare, the cheapest VF-25G I've seen in a local hobby store is 400SGD/US$313.78 (Robo-Robo). Even Ebay is more expensive once international shipping's factored in.

Ah.. My 1S came to the warehouse yesterday too. Haven't shipped it yet though. I requested for a photo of my package to see how well the seller packed the item to decide whether I wanna add package protection. Still waiting for them to reply before I decide to ship it. Shipping is what's made the package expensive so I wanna save what I can if possble.

This just came in tonight. My first Yammie woo. Fast shipping, took about 2 days from day of shipping. No added protective packaging from Buyee. The seller did a great job packing it. Thick layer of bubble wrap with some newspaper inside the box itself :lol:

Box is minty too. Crappy phone images incoming.

That's awesome! The Yamato v2s are really fun to transform and pose.

My 25G renewal finally arrived after a ~6 hour tour of SG with the delivery truck :p Buyee shipped it last Monday evening. Thing was ridiculously well-packaged, I try to post pics later.

Did they send you pictures of the original packaging from the seller?

They were *supposed* to. They sent me an email saying that the attached images to said email but I couldn't find any. By this time I decided to just take the risk and hope the seller packed it decently and ship the item.

Sent them another after.. no reply since. Package arrived nice and safe anyway, so no complaints.
