Rumors about Orchid Seed blocking western buyersRumors about Orchid Seed blocking western buyersAsk MFC

Hi MFC,

I snatched some rumors about that Orchid Seed doesn't want to sell Figures to Western Buyers anymore.
All things startet. As I saw the Biginjap tweet about Mammon:
twitter.com/big...

Was confused and checked Ami² but could not find her sec. color vers.
And browsing on /a/ i saw somebody posting that Anime Jungle sayed to him that OC will not sell some figures outside of jp.
They found also out that Ami² have not Satan Mammon and Maou Mokushiroku Levi on the english site anymore.

But Amiami sayed they will ship it to preordered customers?

So anybody knows some prof? Maybe some ppl. who live in japan? Could not finde some clues on the blog or website.

Well I'm very afraid if its true...

A couple of months ago (1-2 years) there was an instance when Amiami announced that they wouldn't carry Orchid Seed products anymore. I can't recall what exactly was the problem back then, one would have to dig through the old blog posts. It got fixed for the time being, but now Orchid appears to start bucking again. "We don't want your money. Just go away." Weird...

Too early to say and without more information from sources other than just stores, it's impossible to determine the exact cause. I'd wait for some kind of statement from Orchid Seed to make any determinations.

Though... I was considering cancelling the Orchid Seed figure I have preordered, but if there's question about whether OS keeps distributing internationally, I'm not so sure I should.

DCJP5 лет назад#2852052I know you're speculating, but that would make absolutely no sense if it really was the intent.
Basically that would mean, "I don't want money."

Sometimes I rly think that they don't want money O.o everything in Japan is like exclusive and limited and so on.


alterian5 лет назад#2852080Licensing might indeed be a factor or possibly that the figure is seen as being far more popular in Japan than here. Its one of those annoying speculative things like why can I buy Flow albums here in NZ?
Its either a marketing thing or possibly they want to release outside Japan at a later date.


Ye some people say that they break all contacts with shops who sell outside from jp.
The japanese Amiami site regulary don't sell outside of jp.
Wat me bothers is that they taken back the sells from satan or levi for non westeners. I mean I have Satan but she is not an exclusive she is an regular release!
And when OC has license problems Amakuni will have them to.

quitter5 лет назад#2852272Even if they don't let stores sell it outside of Japan, you could still use a proxy to buy them, no? I just hope I can get my hands on ITEM #298304 when she comes out ( ~ω~ ;; )

A proxy can be really expensive. I ordered Levi with her blanked from a proxy and the price is now with shipping and potencial customs like twice the price!

alterian5 лет назад#2851917Any idea why they would shrink their potential audience like this?

Well somethimes I think japanese people don't bother about the people outside from japan. If they can sell in japan everything is fine.

dymitr5 лет назад#2851813Didn't this happen before... I can recall a similar event a year back. Don't remember the details though, but I believe that in the end the pre-orders were shipped out normally to overseas customers and shops once again offered OC figures for PO and retail to int.customers.

Ye this did happen bevore but I don't know the figures maybe somebody knows?
I mean well ye if Ami² is shipping the preorders to all people it's ok.
But maybe in the future they will not pop up on any of the sites who sell to outsiders. Like BIJ, N-Y and Ami² eng. site.
Then you need a proxy and that will be a) very expensive (extra costs) and b) more limited c) you need to have the money right on your wallet. I like to preorder in advance thats unpossible then.

This seems to only affect the seven deadly sins figures, because all the other preorders are still available... Maybe it's a exclusive deal of some sort, or are they really banning their all products from western ppl?
