She might be available through a proxy service. Many people on MyFigureCollection seem to use either BiginJapan or Nippon-Yassan. I don't buy too many exclusive figures, so I've never used either of them, but both of them have lots of feedbacks in the forums over at MyFigureCollection (under "figure and shop reviews" in the forums).

I had gotten this figure from the KyoAni shop by using a proxy service, in my case Tokyo Hunter, and I had no problems with the service. The only thing is, you'll be paying a bit extra since you have to pay their proxy fees, which I imagine varies among the different sites. You'd just have to do a little research into what the costs of each proxy are I guess.

Continuing from that other thread, I am now interested in getting the above Dekomori figure >_>

When do preorders for exclusive stuff normally come out on the proxy service side of things?

Shortly after they come out from wherever the proxy is getting it from. You should expect that it's going to take probably a week for the item to get sent to your proxy service. Might take a bit less since they're generally putting in a large order so they get priority, but a week is a good rule of thumb. Then once your proxy service has their order fulfilled, they'll ship it off to you.

Cannot... cannot read moonspeak...

There seem to be several dates in the above link provided... which is the real date for the figure?

(I'm assuming July 2014, but just want to be sure)

According to MFC, July 2014 is the release date.

It's shipping to buyers in July 2014 (likely mid-July as that's when Rikka's figure shipped out) and pre-orders start 2014/1/8 to tie in with a CM that'll likely air during the first episode that evening.

Oh my gawd, I need to give people a heads up on this just in case.

I ended up ordering from this site:

http://www.nippon-yasan.com/​figures-​others/​6492-​chuunibyou-​demo-​koi-​ga-​shitai-​dekomori-​sanae-​limited-​edition.​html

I used FEDEX shipping and they only accept paypal payments. The thing took like 3 days to get to California.

(though there was some initial derp: they sent my figure out to someone else, but I cleared it up with customer service in live chat and they didn't give me too much drama over sending out another order to me since I had the paypal invoice number or whatever... be sure to followup quickly if there's no shipment notice after like a day)

Anyway, the thing is glorious and I highly recommend spending money :v



I've already pre-ordered the Nibutani figure from the same site (though I don't seem to like the look of it as much as the Deko figure, just going by the pictures).
