First-Time Purchase Guide

If you are buying a GK statue for the first time or starting to collect anime characters, please read the following guide to help you understand the resin statue and shopping process.

What is GK Statue?

GK is the abbreviation of Garage Kits/ガレージキット usually means the original figures made by the designer. The main material is the resin which material can perfectly present the details. So statues made with this material have become the player’s preference.

Release Date

Please note that product shipping dates are estimates only and are subject to change without notice. These estimated dates are based on the best information we have from our conversations with the studio. These changes depend on the studio's progress.

Our shipping dates may differ from studio release dates, please consider the shipping time for the product to arrive at our warehouse.

* Since arrival dates for pre-order products are only estimates and may be affected by events beyond our control, we do not recommend purchasing pre-order products for birthdays or other special occasions.

When you look at pre-order statues posted on our website, you will always see the options "Deposit" and "Full Payment".

"Deposit" means you ensure that one of the GK statues will be yours when completed at the lowest possible price. We will let you know via whatsapp and email when the statue is nearing completion and you will then receive an invoice for the final payment (full payment - deposit).

*Note* The deposit is also part of the payment during production, no matter you pay the rest or not, the studio will make the statue for you, so the deposit is generally non-refundable.

Deposits are refundable under certain circumstances:
Pre-order quantities that do not meet the minimum production quantity, in which case we will email you a full refund.
Studios take money and disappear, unfortunately for some new studios this rarely happens. But in this case, we will compensate your loss and give you a full refund.

 

"Full payment" means you pay the statue at full price, i.e. skip paying the rest of the payment process. But when you pay the full amount and later decide not to buy the statue, only the remaining amount (full payment - deposit) will be refunded.

  • Full payment is fully refundable under certain circumstances:

    Pre-order quantities that do not meet the minimum production quantity, in which case we will email you a full refund.

  • Studios take money and disappear, unfortunately for some new studios this rarely happens. But in this case, we will compensate your loss and give you a full refund.

When you pre-order a statue, all you have to do now is wait for it to be produced and receive a shipping invoice later. After this, you will be given a tracking number and wait for the statue to come to your home.


 

Why do freight charges have to be paid later?

The prices of products on the website do not include shipping costs. Shipping costs will be assessed based on the box size and weight of the product you order. When your order is placed, the product has not yet arrived at our warehouse, so we are unable to provide you with an accurate shipping cost. But don't worry, I will give you a preliminary estimate of the shipping cost, but it is just a more or less estimate; finally, we will provide you with quotes for multiple shipping methods (including air/land/sea) for you to choose from .
