Amiami Archive

  • I have been a figure collector for well over 15 years by now, countless boxes of EMS shipments have arrived in my doorstep and not once did I have to bother to file a damage report.  But like the saying goes, there is a first of everything and it finally happened to Shining Blade Misty by Alter.  Since the figure was purchased from Amiami and it was shipped by EMS so I am insured against damages.  While the extend of the damage was not catastrophic, Misty's right arm was broken as shown here and it's easily fixable by my own but since I am paying a lot of money to have it shipped by EMS, the whole shipment along with Fate Testarossa's Swimsuit Movie version was to 6000 yen, I figured I am at least entitled to damage compensation!

  • I have recently discovered a marketplace site which allows anyone to buy/sell and discover Japanese goods called Flutterscape.  If you are like many of us who shares the passion and love for Japanese goods but have no way to acquire them directly, you would most likely ended up to going through some online merchant such as Amiami, Hobbysearch or HLJ just to name a few; or you might even resort into Yahoo Japan Auction if the goods you are looking for are either in back order or out of production phase.  Now this is where Flutterscape is different, since it allows anyone to buy an item, list an item for sale, request an item you want or simply to share a product you like!  I can't even begin to count how many times I have come across an item I want to get but have no idea where to go find it if no one is listing them on auction.... Now I can upload a photo of what I am looking for and wait for responds.... I know this isn't the best possible way to look for a rare item but it is at least one step better than waiting for someone to list them on auction right?
