I ordered Mugiwara Nami, Marco MAS, Luffy Z, and Vivi. It sucks cause they are all preorder. Has anyone done preorder with CR before? I am curious how it works. Am I supposed to get my figure on the estimated arrival date? Or is the estimated arrival date when they get it and ship it? I'm just curious about other people's figure buying experiences on Crunchyroll. I asked Crunchyroll 2 weeks ago and no response so hopefully you all can help me.

I pre-ordered the Nendoroid Mikasa Ackerman figure and at the time the ship date shown on the Crunchryoll Store was February 28, 2014. I got an email from Crunchryoll on March 3, 2014 indicating that my order had shipped.

I haven't received it yet but according to the USPS tracking number the parcel is in transit.


EDIT:

Mikasa just arrived

I haven't bought figures but I bought some Dvd set and regretted it terribly. :[

I ordered a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku some time ago, they operate like most other places I've preordered from. You typically only get a broad time of the month, although I don't think the order status information is ever correct.

In fact I've got stuff I ordered back in November that I received that still reflect "Pending Fulfillment". I believe the Estimated Arrival though is when they expect the merch, you'll want to tack on some time for shipping and maybe even a day or two for processing, though since you pay up front this may not be necessary.

I've ordered a couple Cu-Poche figures from CR.

Took longer than expected to get the Sayaka Miki one shipped, but otherwise I'm fine with the service.

I pre-ordered Mikasa Ackerman and Kuroko Shirai Nendoroids. Mikasa arrived last week in excellent condition.

The only thing I don't like about pre-ordering with CR is being charged before the item is available. Otherwise I have no complaints.

I've bought Mugiwara Nami & Luffy Version Z so I'm still waiting. The arrival date they state is when they receive the shipment, so like 1-2 days after it will be in transit over to you.

I've bought a couple PO items from CR. Only time I ever had an issue was with that Attack on Titan hoodie, which they delayed for months and never notified anyone about. The delays were the fault of the manufacturer, but it would've been nice to have been notified of the delay.

Other than that, all has been well.

When you PO something, you pay for it at checkout. If you check your order history, it should say "Paid Pending Fulfillment", which means they haven't shipped it yet. When they do get the item in stock and ship it, they'll email you with a tracking number, and your order history should changed to "Completed". In the item description, it should say when the PO item will be available - that's the "estimated arrival date". After it ships, it should take a week tops to arrive if you live in the US. I live on the opposite coast from CR's headquarters, and it takes less than a week for an item to arrive here.

I've ordered three things from the CR store, only one was a preorder though. I don't think it is suppose to be available until like April or May though.

Was going to, but the shipping costs to the UK, are somewhat off putting.

Use coupon code SHINJI75 . It takes $10 off shipping for items over $75 I'm pretty sure. That should help you with UK shipping costs.

That's not going to help, I'm afraid.

Oh, well I tried. If I absolutely had to pay for shipping costs. I still think I would buy POPs on CR just because they usually are a lot cheaper than Japanese retailers. For me to ship a POP internationally it is $26. I don't know if CR charges more than that for shipping but I hope not.

I pre-ordered the Luffy and Nami figures on here. It seems like Crunchyroll gets their stuff a month later than other sites though.

This isn't a PoP figure, but I actually got my G.E.M. Aladdin figure 3 weeks before the estimate.
