Disclaimer : As of 09/09 she is pretty much confirmed to be China exclusive, situation is unlikely to change in the future. Pre-orders close on 31/10 so please be careful to not miss the deadline.


Here is a small guide I've compiled with all the users comments on how to pre-order ITEM #998271, since there are a lot of users who keep asking the same questions and keep getting lost due to how fast the comment section moves, I thought it would be easier to gather all the informations in one place to keep track of the content.

Please tell me right away if I've missed any information or mispread some informations, I wouldn't want to misguide any user



First of all, before looking up for a proxy, check if you actually need one :

Countries from this list will NOT need a proxy as Taobao have a domestic direct shipping option :
Hong Kong
Macau
Taiwan
Malaysia
Singapore
Australia


Making a Taobao account is pretty simple, however you WILL need to have your phone nearby since they pretty much send you a notification code every 10 minutes due to security matters. Confirm your mail as well in case you lose your phone one day, as it's very hard to get a taobao account back.

For residents of those countries, you will just have to pick the figure from the Myethos shop (item.taobao.com...), add in cart, put your address, pick a shipping option (do NOT pick the forwarding option, as there were a lot of reports of damaged packages, pick the domestic shipping option as it's generally safer and much faster, it will be written as 直送), confirm and place the order, pay with Alipay (works with any credit cards with an extra fee of 3%, for Malaysian residents the fees will be 1.5%) Please notice that this is the official Myethos' shop, therefore it does not come with any sort of bonus items.

Be careful : once the item releases you'll get a notification which tells you to pay, please be careful to the deadline of 2 weeks as they won't fullfill your order or give you the money back once past that deadline.

For those who reside in those countries and want the bonus items, here are the links and the procedure :

- Acrylic Display Case for only one extra RMB :
item.taobao.com...
The first 3 categories don't matter as they're already pre-checked for you, however the first option means paying the deposit of 150 RMB + get the rights to buy the acrylic display case for 1RMB (预付定金150元(预定+1元即可购买韶华亚克力展示盒)), second option means pay the total amount right now + get the rights to buy the acrylic display case for 1RMB (预付全款(预定+1元即可购买韶华亚克力展示盒)) and third option is paying the deposit cheaper, 120 RMB instead of 150RMB, not sure what the purpose is plus you'll need to contact the taobao seller, which means you'll need to be fluent in chinese. You will not need to bother with the 3rd option.

Once you've added her in the cart, follow the same procedure as above and you'll have her ordered.

Here is the acrylic display box link : item.taobao.com...
Same for above, ignore the first 2 boxes as they are pre-checked : check the 仅限预定过韶华的客户选这里 box AND the 预付全款1元(一名额限一个)box (one box limited per order). Place the order of 1RMB and pick 自行联系卖家发货 as the shipping option, as you won't need to pay shipping for it since it comes with the figure. Place the order and you're ready to go.

Notice : some banks will NOT accept any order inferior or equal to 1RMB, if this problem happens to you please contact the store through the Aliwangwang application, they will change the invoice to 2RMB and you'll need to remind them to take an extra RMB out of the final order next June.

- Life-sized fan :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, however be aware that deposit is not available and you will have to pay the full amount directly.

- A3 wallscroll :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, pick between 预定(没拍先拍这里)(300RMB deposit) and 预定全款(没拍先行拍这里) to pay the full price. Do NOT pick 先行补定金/先行预定全款 as you won't be guaranteed to get any in stock.

- Wall scroll based on the original ASK illustration :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, please pick the deposit option for 100RMB (预定) and NOT 先行补交定金优惠39元,拍错无效, as it isn't 100% guaranteed that you will get a pre-order slot.

- Screen :
item.taobao.com...
Same procedure as above, pick either the 99RMB deposit(定金99元,21年6月发售) or 79RMB deposit (补定金79元,21年6月发售) - however I recommend picking the 99RMB deposit -, click on 总价999元包邮,赠店铺特典屏风,限时尾款减39元 and place the order. The 9999RMB listing is just a reference for the case next to 总价999元包邮,赠店铺特典屏风,限时尾款减39元 (a prototype picture of the screen is shown).

For those who want the fan or the wall scroll or the screen display AND the box (you cannot pick the 4 or any other combination together), you'll have no choice but to pick the 180RMB option on the acrylic box listing, so the second link (预定总价180元,非偏远地区包邮) and the shipping for it, or put a deposit for the acrylic case (预付定金30元), even though I recommend paying directly the whole price as it will be very troublesome and your bank will charge you with fees twice instead of once.

Please notice that you'll have 20 days to confirm the order once you place and pay it, go to 已买到的宝贝 on the top bar, then click on 确认收货 on the right. You can do it manually or let taobao confirm it 20 days later, however it's better to do it by yourself.


I've noticed a lot of people using Amazon JP (www.amazon.co.j...), please be aware that the prices are inflated and 21k JPY is around 1355RMB when the taobao listing is 999RMB (both are without shipping and proxy fees).

Some useful links : www.howtotao.co..., for general non-specific taobao orders, it has a section where it details which countries accept the forwarding service and which doesn't, however PLEASE USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK, as the packaging is extremely minimal (non-existent) and the delays are horrible because of the pandemic. You wouldn't want to receive a partially destroyed box and a figure whose missing its head just because you didn't use a proxy.

Here is a list of taobao proxies (just the names and links, no further information on how they work yet, however the sites are in english so it shouldn't be a problem):

Superbuy (www.superbuy.co...)
Wegobuy (www.wegobuy.com...)
Bhiner (www.bhiner.com/)
CssBuy (www.cssbuy.com/)
Basetao (www.basetao.com...)
Yoybuy (www.yoybuy.com/...)


Each sites have their own fees and shipping calculator, please refer to them. Most of these sites will open your package to inspect on the content, if you do not wish so please write them a notice. Notice that some sites might ask for identification when paying directly, adding funds instead would be a great way to avoid it.


Please DM me if you want to contribute on the proxy part or have any other question, or need help with chinese reading/texting a taobao agent through their stores.

AmethystDream5個月前#95202893I ordered the wooden display via Superbuy. It's already in stock. The shipping is as scary as the estimate. I'm paying extra to keep it until june to ship it with the figure hoping it will help me save a little.

What was the shipping for the wooden box?

Eschasintra4個月前#97347098Hello, did you order through a proxy? The links are down because they don't have any pre-order slot left. Myethos shop link won't scam you since they're the manufacturer, and in general taobao isn't a scam site (you'd still need to be on guard for eventual scams though, check the seller's ratings).

thank you ^^ it was the myethos shop link with bhiner ^^

Someone please help! I've tried to preorder twice on superbuy but they keep canceling the order. They said something about not responding in 72 hours or my order not being confirmed but every time my order status was processing. I clicked the confirm order button and everything but my order keeps getting canceled and I don't want to pay aftermarket for her. Is there another agent anyone reccommends?

ANYONE BUYING FROM SUPERBUY:

The 16$ is a deposit...you actually are paying 999 Chinese Yuan + shipping when the figure comes to the warehouse. Always check the shops for the legitness (it will direct you to Taobao). I bought mine at a shop that had a 1 gold king crown which is one of the highest ratings.

Hello! Thank you so much for writing this detailed guide :) I'm a little confused on this matter, if I wish to purchase the figure + the acrylic box + the stand, do I still choose the 180yuan option (from the acrylic box link)? Because while I see the option to choose the figure + acrylic box, there is not extra option to add on the screen.

Furthermore, I noticed this link (item.taobao.com...) has a beautiful wooden box that goes along with it but costs 9999yuan when the wooden box is selected as an option, is this the actual price?

Yukia4個月前#96253002If I'm understanding it right, postcard means reservation/the deposit payment. Sites will often allow you to pay shipping later if you only pay the deposit, so you'd have to pay shipping when you pay the rest amount for the display case.
hpoi only has 2 left. This is the shop I ordered mine after missing the original myethos listing.
this one seems to be a bigger shop as well, 10 left in stock. Might want to image translate the description.


Thank you for helping me find reputable sellers!! I placed an order under ACG store!

I would like to order the wooden display case with LED, but I was wondering if the item would be prohibited to ship to USA because it contains LED?

YoshiChan4個月前#96138084Hello, I have a question and maybe someone can help me out.
I would like to buy the Display Case via Figureace www.figureace.c...
In the description of the article they are talking of postcards regarding the display box. What does this mean?
ALso the website offers 0$ shipping when you only buy the postcard. So does this mean if I only buy the Display Box I can chose the 0$ shipping costs?

shibuyah4個月前#96098839Thank you for this informative post! I just discovered her today & would like to order her on Taobao, but I’m not sure which listing is reliable / if she’s still available for preorder :(
