So, on Friday I received my first ever shipment from AmiAmi.com! I had been dearly wanting the then soon-to-be-released Menma Nendoroid, and saw that a pre-order spot opened on AmiAmi at the last minute. I would have ordered sooner elsewhere, but it was just so pricey. AmiAmi, however, had Menma up for a big discount! (The normal price would be over 3,000 Yen, and AmiAmi was charging about 2,600 yen, not including shipping.)
So, I went ahead and ordered that sucker.
As soon as it hit February 28th (this Nendoroid’s release date), I got a payment invoice from AmiAmi (you don’t have to pay for pre-orders until they’re ready to ship on this site) with the total cost including shipping (they can’t give you a shipping quote until the item is in stock and can be weighed), and I went ahead and payed.
The shipping cost was very reasonable. I chose EMS (expensive, but worth it in my opinion, since it gets here in a couple of days), and the total was approximately 1,600 yen.
She shipped within about two days, and was here in two days. (I got lucky, since the estimate is 3 - 5 days!)
She came wonderfully packaged and in perfect condition.
The picture doesn’t show it very well, but this essentially a box inside a box inside a box. It kept Menma’s box very fit and snug and safe.
All said and done, I will definitely be ordering from AmiAmi again. (In fact, I already have.) They offer discounts that nobody else does, making them the go-to for figure collectors, so if you’re looking to save some money on this expensive hobby, this is where you’ll want to go!
