Good grief. The Postal Service is failing miserably with this wave. My set has officially been declared MIA. Thank god I chose EMS service which is insured in the event of loss. So I have to go through the claims process now in the hopes of recouping some of the cost. In the meantime, I ordered another set and had AmiAmi ship it to my work place. *crossing fingers tightly*
Hopefully both of you will get your figures soon.

So its now waiting for me to pick it up. Meanwhile I'm waiting for shipment confirmation on the second set I ordered from AmiAmi last night. :rolleyes:
At least these two figures are worth all of the trouble you are going thru...

the hole in the back of her helmit that holds the visor on is what im talking about, no hair fits into that little hole in the back of the helmit, and neiter did the visor until i fixed the hole with a probe, to which i ended un stabbing my self with accidentally while working, however, right after that the helmit finally worked, LOL all it takes is blood and sweat to get a job done right? LOL

Glad to hear it because I might wind up with two sets shortly. LOL I know they don't like to cancel orders, but I emailed AmiAmi tonight and explained the situation. I figured it couldn't hurt.

I gots my Proxima and... wow. I am impressed. She doesn't have very much in the way of parts, but wow, does she know how to use what she's got. I love her armored form.

Her joints are really solid. Nice and tight, and not in a scary way. Her weapons are extremely versatile, and her hair's molding issues really don't look that bad in person.

Today I had the time to open my Proxima, and I feel little disappointed for the first time; the plastic and the paint looks cheap... Is fine to have cheap plastic and bad painting in figures like hasbro`s marvel legends, but in a busou shinki with tag price of 4,320 yen... :vitulus:

If they won't cancel the figures then you will at least be able to make all of Tommy2leung's Mary Celes two figure customs...

True. Although I don't tend use the armor. Don't have the room to display them in it.

Quality-wise, I have no qualms with the first set. Paint quality is good and no joint issues. Proxima is perfect. Maryceles' standard chestpiece is extra soft requiring some care removing it and where her leg pegs together at the thigh on the left side is loose. Yet easy to deal with.

I like the figure to, but I feel that konami is downgrading the quality, so the quality is not in accord with the price. And, pluss, the figure does not have battle rondo code... May be konami will leave the new figures for the following psp games only...

There is a comparation:

The red pice have an evenly white painting, the proxima piece have un uneven white painting and airbrush spots in the blue area, the legs have paiting problems to, the tone is different from one piece to the other, and the plastic in the pieces is opaque and looks cheap...
