Robot Damashii Gundam Exia Delivery Review

After waiting for over a month, the Robot Damashii Gundam Exia that I ordered has finally arrived. The parcel was shipped around 6 December 2009 and I only received it at 8 January 2010. It must have been delayed by the long holiday period between Christmas and the new year. Here is an overview of the parcel. As you can see the parcel box has gone through its fair share of wear and tear from international delivery.

Side view of the parcel. I notice that most parcels that I got from Hong Kong use flimsy nylon strings to tie the package.

I received the parcel in this manner, with one side of the box semi opened. It might be caused by customs inspection but they should have resealed it with their own tape.

Another thing that I notice about parcels from Hong Kong is that they opt to use conventional postage stamps to pay for the delivery. IMHO this adds a more interesting experience when you receive such parcels as the stamps are assets to stamp collectors (too bad I stopped collecting long ago).

The seller also affixed custom made fragile notices on the parcel box.

After untying the flimsy nylon strings, here is how the parcel looked like after lifting open the unsecured flaps. Good to know the seller used bubble wrap for additional protection.

Here is the Robot Damashii Gundam Exia still wrapped in bubble wrap.

The seller used 2 layers of bubble wrap to protect the Robot Damashii Gundam Exia. Kudos!

The Robot Damashii Gundam Exia package finally unwrapped.

Damage assessment time. The packaging box suffered most damage on the left side with a certain degree of depression found on the rear side of the box.

Here is another view of the left side of the packaging of the Robot Damashii Gundam Exia.

Damashii actually means soul/spirit so this line of highly articulated action figures from Bandai can also be referred to as Robot Spirits.

All in all this package arrived in an acceptable condition but it could have been improved greatly if the seller opt for harder cardboard box.

The nylon string is an indication that the package has been open up for inspection by the custom. Few years back, they have a special tape to conceal it back
