Kommentare Survival Strategies

  • I never thought I'd feel lucky to have surface mail still available, but here we are, haha. I'm surviving by buying almost everything through a proxy and then packing it all into massive surface parcels. Where I am surface always takes ~2 months so it ain't so bad. I occasionally treat myself to a fedex parcel but usually shipping isn't too much as all scales, etc. get shipped by surface so it's just garage kits and other miscellaneous things which weigh very little. Planning on buying few figures until other options return, and instead focus on really nice hand-made stuff and merch.

    combining orders when buying and simply not buying figures. shipping isnt as painful when you have a box full of keychains and acrylic stands :,,)

    For me, slowing down the rate I collect that is the only option.

    Going on a buying hiatus or buying from local stores, in my case considering shipping and customs tax/duty/fees, it costs me about the same, or less in some cases, as if I imported them myself, but not having to go thru the annoying clearing customs process is a positive thing, the only negative might be it takes a bit more time for figures to be available after release or preordered figures will take a bit more time to arrive.

    acai i love pink
    combination of moving my POs closer to home and taking a break from collection once my current POs release. its unfortunate but i can't really afford the hobby with everything as expensive as it is, so its time for me to take a bit of a hiatus in that sense. i'm actually quite happy with my collection though so its not TOO depressing.

    also thankful for any and all delays as it allows me to space purchases out more and more which i appreciate

    Storing them at warehouse until shipping gets cheaper + combine shipping.

    I've been relying on my local stores since they're not marking up as much as they used and it seems like they have some sort of a deal with the manufacturers so the cost between amiami and the local shop isnt that much different.
