    Question Recent Digimon Purchases

    I noticed that while we have a 'Recent Gaming Purchases' thread we don't have one relating to Digimon purchases (unless I missed it).
    I always want to yell into the horizon whenever I make a Digimon purchase so I might as well yell it in a direction that might care.
    I'm also curious about what other people in this forum are buying.

    So I recently bought a D-Ark version 1.5 (Li's colour, I'm trying to purchase all released D-Arks), Our War Game Omegamon (finally put down a preorder at figurine store in Australia. I think I got the last preorder they had), two mini flyers from teh Our War Game screening, and I put a preorder down for the Gabumon headphones.

    So what about everybody else?

    This is such a nifty idea!

    A bit jealous you got Li's D Ark as his was always my favourite (I only have red versions of the 3 different types)

    Recently bought a Japanese D3 (V-Mon one) from a wonderful person on this forum.

    Also having a couple plushies me for me (Botamon and Mamemon) as they're things I need that do not exist!

    I've gone a little crazy lately, since I discovered that buying from Japan directly (well, via a proxy service) actually allows you to find better deals than on ebay (some of the time, anyway). Just today I got a version 1 D-Scanner, and I've been having some fun with that. :P Also bought a Mini V1 not long ago, and got a Pendulum Progress V2 for really cheap about the same time. Although they were pretty good deals, my bank account is still whimpering just a bit... ^^'

    Love this idea, completely . I hope to share some of my odd-ball purchases.

    @Gigamon23 what service do you use to buy from Japan? I've been looking around and the ones I've seen slap a few charges on things for no real reason.

    That's what proxy services do. They spend the time and effort to get products you can't and charge you for it.

    Your average proxy service charges a fee, either percentage or flat, on top of the products entire price, along with a shipping charge to your location.

    Many also offer a hold service at a fee (so you can have multiple things shipped at once to try and save on shipping.)

    Because of this you end up paying...

    The MSRP (since many of the items you'd use a proxy service for are exclusive items that stores charge MSRP for.)
    Japanese Tax (the item has to be shipped inside of Japan, so you get hit for that.)
    Shipping from the exclusive store to the proxy service.
    The proxy service's fee based on the price of the item.
    Hold service (if you want it held.)
    Shipping to you from the proxy service


    I've yet to see a reputable proxy service just throw fees on for 'no real reason'

    Well, hoping I snag those tag/digivice gashapon I wanted on Y!JP auctions, but I did get a Matt/TK bag from Australia for $3.

    Recently ordered the trifecta of Tri singles, and the Adventure movies DVD from CDJapan. The latter was kind of an unplanned impulse buy but oh well

    @Kovokashi -- I use Buyee, primarily shopping on Yahoo Auctions. MarcFBR is right, there are fees attached. You'll want to read the fine print before you choose them, but basically they have you pay for the domestic (from seller to their facility), and international (from them to you) shipping. They also charge a service fee that's 10% of your total purchase, or 250 yen if its under a certain amount. I generally try to keep purchases as cheap as possible because the shipping costs a lot. The service is reasonably good, but I've heard of people having issues trying to get them to combine shipping, so there's that to consider.

    I have to admit I've gone a little crazy with the purchases lately since Tri came out! I recently bought a D-Arts WarGreymon figure, he's still in his box and I probably won't open him until I get my own place. I also pre-ordered a few G.E.M series figures and currently waiting on my metal crests and Charawatch's to arrive
    let's show 'em what our brave heart can do!
