Today, my first POP UP PARADE figurine arrived. Bernadetta von Varley is one of my favorite characters from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, which is not only my favorite Fire Emblem game, but my second favorite game of all-time (right after Persona 5).
POP UP PARADE is Good Smile Company’s brand of affordable figures. This one in particular has a list price of 49,90 €. Since I reserved it and redeemed it early on, I got a discount of 5 €. Despite the low price, POP UP PARADE figures still have very high quality and are a good option for low budget collections, in my opinion.
I got this figurine from Figuya instead of Good Smile directly. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I am going to buy from Figuya almost exclusively going forward. Receiving orders from a trusted reseller like them who is based in the same country as me is much easier and I won’t have to bother with international shipping and customs fees anymore.
This actually wouldn’t have been my first Fire Emblem figure. I recently had a problem receiving my Byleth figurine from Good Smile as there were problems with the shipping. The figurine actually ended up being sent back to Japan, which means I will have to contact Good Smile’s support to see what they can do about it. I was really looking forward to receiving that figurine and posting about it, because it looks really cool. If it gets here, I will of course post an update.
