  • Help with buying Anime merchandise

    I have tried researching this on my own, but I am tossing in the towel, and I am hoping to pick the brains of our outstanding forum members on a couple of things:

    Essentially, I am looking to buy some Studio Ghibli merchandise, at the moment this pertains specifically to Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds (Kaze no Tani no Nausicaa). There are two things in particular I am looking at: one is an original theatrical release poster from Japan, and the other is a Cominica figurine.

    I have found the figurine on Ebay US, but it ranges from $100-$150. Just a glance at Cominica's website (Cominica.co.jp) shows that the figurine in question runs at 2900 yen, but at today's exchange rate of roughly 91 yen to the dollar that is about $32. Does anyone know anything about ordering products from overseas? Also, does anyone have any good website translators because Babelfish has failed me on this one. I was thinking about sending them an email in english and hoping that someone might get back to me at some point because they don't have a US website, any thoughts or suggestions?

    The other thing I was looking in to was obtaining a poster from Nausicaa's original theatrical release. However, I cannot find a website that explicitly states what the original posters looked like. I cannot even find copyright dates on the Ebay listings to verify that they are original posters and not reproductions. From what I can tell there were as few as 3 original posters and as many as 6, I am having trouble discerning whether or not 3 were actually released.

    If you have read this far, thanks for your time. If you have anything to add, any opinions would be appreciated as I typically do not use Ebay and usually confine my online purchases to Amazon or Overstock.

    I recommend you ask this question on an anime forum. I'm a member of these two sites.

      Thanks troublesome, I've been poking around at various Ghibli fan sites, but they all seem to have last been updated in like 2005 lol. I plan to post something similar at mangahelpers.com, but I will probably use those links as well. I came here first because I'm a much more active poster on this site, and you know how people can get if your post count is 1 and you ask something tough like this lol.
