Ordering from Preowned AmiamiOrdering from Preowned AmiamiDiary

Hi everyone! I wanted to write a bit about my experience with Amiami's new Preowned feature. I ordered the B/B Liquid Stone Reimu (who will be referred to here on out as Raymoo) and PK006 which is just some pinky accessories.

All of my excitement! Let's go to Raymoo first.

The back of the box has a sticker on it, indicating a preowned status I assume (can't read japanese, but their new products don't have a sticker, so it's a safe assumption to make.)

This is, honest to goodness, the only flaw I could find with her box. Personally, this isn't something that bothered me, since I knew what I was getting into, but still worth documenting.

Honestly not sure if this happened during shipping or it was part of the original B rating, but her head isn't connected to the figure as shown here.

Also, I didn't get a picture of the original seals, but I'm fairly sure this box was unopened before it got to me, so there's another brownie point for amiami.

See, isn't she adorable all assembled and on my shelf? What a cutie.

Onto the pinky accessories.

Might be hard to tell, but the blister pack was obviously taped to the back card to reseal it. Not a big deal, since the product was advertised as being opened, so I expected this. There's no damages to the back card or the plastic.

Here's some of the accessories being displayed on my Mai pinky. Pretty cute, right?

In conclusion, if you want a perfect figure, obviously go for amiami's A or AA rating because more likely than not you will not end up with something perfect. But based on my experience amiami is rather strict with their ratings and very small damages can get you a huge discount. For me, as a collector that isn't particularly worried about perfection and is also incredibly cheap, I am going to be a dedicated customer to amiami's preowned figures.

I've ordered several Ami-Ami pre-owns over the last 4 months numbering around 45 total. Of all only 1 box exceeded their b-rating. A few of the outer cartons shipped EMS also had holes in them but thankfully there was no shipping damage to the content within. I've been very happy with Ami-Ami pre-owns and AmiAmi packing.

bd837 år sedan#1388636Awesome post. Thanks for this. I admit I was a bit hesitant about ordering pre-owned stuff from AmiAmi since I wasn't too sure how their ratings translated to reality, but after seeing this, I'm all in. :)

I'm very glad to help! I hope you find some great deals.

Shinigamiyoko7 år sedan#1388685My mameshiki Cirno from AmiAmi's pre-owned came the same way, with the head detached from the body. Always kind of wondered what happened to her previously, though the head was super easy to just pop back on. Glad to see it's not just my figure that arrived like that!

It must have to do with the blister being really loose around the head and the head being really heavy in general. As to if it happened during shipping or if it was just sold that way by amiami, I have no clue. But yeah, the head didn't scratch the collar of her dress any, and I planned on unboxing her, so no complaints here.

I love their preowned section. Nearly everything I buy arrives in perfect or near perfect condition, and most of the items i've ordered are B/B rated.
