This is how NegativeZero figures…

Figures…Perfect in Proportion, Pose and Profile.

Thanks for the Mammaries. Shiori Tsuzuki.

Wow.  In my 2 years of figure collecting, never have I been through what Shiori put me through; or rather what my post office put me through.  Lord knows what she went through during her two months in transit to me.  But she’s finally home and I am happy to have her.

Shiori (1)

I have quite a significant amount of Witchblade figures.  I love Makoto Uno’s style of art and enjoyed the Witchblade anime series.  I also liked Dragonaut but have yet to complete the series.  Dragonaut has been largely criticized and widely hated but I love the art so I’m gonna finish it.  But I digress, I have many of the Witchblade figures but they are all of Masane Amaha with the exception of one, Maria.  I’ve seen a couple of other non-Amaha Witchblade figures but they didn’t appeal to me until this one.

She was preordered from HLJ and I anxiously waited for her to be in stock.  She finally shipped on July 17 and I did my normal waiting as usual for my HLJ orders.  Weeks go by and nothing arrives so I figure I’ll email HLJ but the site says to wait 7-45 days for SAL shipping.  So I wait and wait and wonder where my item is.  So finally I hear something from HLJ, not good news though. My package has been received by HLJ.  WHAT?  WTF?  So they gave me a two options reship at my cost or have the amount of the figure credited to my account.  No Brainer, I had it reshipped.  It reshipped on August 25 and arrived on September 10 while I was at work.

I get home later that evening to find this in front of my door.
Shiori Shipping Box

I couldn’t believe my eyes but rather than get too angry I literally just laughed.  Got my camera out before even opening the box ready to file my claim.  After the pics of the shipping box I set her free and took more pictures of the figure box.  I had no idea whether the figure survived whatever crushed the shipping box but somehow the figure itself survived.

As horrifying as this situation was, I kept my cool and everything worked out.  SAL shipping is slow and dangerous but with the amount of figures I buy , I personally can’t afford to ship everything by the safer EMS.  Does anyone out there have any figure shipping horror stories?

So now I present to you the pics. Some are definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK. The base has “NSWF” though I’m not sure what it is in reference to. So I’ll just take it as NSFW.

Here is the Front and Back of the figure

One thing I found odd is the wrist bands, the right arm has it around the wrist, while the left arm has it above the elbow. Granted I understand that it’s covering the joint for her extra arm with weapon but it’s still weird.

Next up is the Left and Right sides, Shiori is definitely giving Queens Blade’s Cattleya a run for her money!

Last two pics are showing the extra arm that’s included and a Cast off pic. If you are underage or your country has laws against you looking at boobs, turn away Now.

As always couple more pics on my flickr

    OMG That box is MANGLED!!!

    And OMG at the fact they make you pay to have it reshipped!!!

    damn I forgot to mention that the figure is a bit off balance, not sure if it’s due to shipping but somehow I think not.

    And yeah I thought it sucked that they made me pay to reship, especially after how much business I do with them. It wasn’t my fault but it wasn’t theirs either, so it’s just something to accept. :(…

    I wonder whether it was destroyed when they send to you again.. or during the 2nd time =/ But glad that the fig is okay!

  6. Omg her boobs are bigger than her face.

    LOL @ YOUR PACKAGE. I can’t believe it was beaten up that bad. You’d think after waiting that long the package would atleast be in good condition

    actually, as long as it took it woulda kinda expected it to be worse. getting bounced around in some boat or on some plane.

    Hey, I really REALLY want this figure too, how can I buy it?

    • zerofigures said

      Not too sure if this figures is still available but as popular as she is, I think you may come across her somewhere, just don’t buy bootlegs! if its too cheap and shipping is ridiculous , its probably bootleg!

      • Grant said

        What do you mean by “bootlegs”?

        And what are the normal prices for buying it safely?

        If I live in Colombia… how much can it cost (in Dollars)?

        I checked on and there’s still some Shiori Figures on sale =D


        I had never bought something online, can you help me please?

  9. zerofigures said

    sorry. bootlegs are fake figures, imitation of the original.

    Here is one from a good seller

    The ones on amazon look good as well.

    I’m not so sure i can assist you in your purchase. Perhaps you have a friend who can help you.

    Make sure you can have such big boobed items in your country with no problems. Not everyone appreciates the big boobs ^_^
