There are one or two marks. Nothing too serious.

Mine shipped from Germany. A German seller. Odd thing is, they claimed to send the piece via DHL. It appears they used economy German post? ..why make the DHL bit up?

A US seller has had the piece listed on ebay forever. They are aksing to much for someone outside the US, as shipping and import pushes the price up too much.

Yeah, i had this statue on my ebay-watchlist.
He still has Machiko Noguchi.

If I know correctly, DHL is the parcel service (and thus a subsidiary) of Deutsche Post.

I own Machiko Noguchi. Excellent piece! ..i picked mine up off of ebay, from a Dutch seller for quite a good price

Odd. DHL US - UK arrives quickly, in a yellow DHL van.
DHL (german parcel service) Germany - UK economy is slow, and arrives in an unmarked white van.
The tracking number failed to work on the offical DHL website? (17TRACK tracked the parcel without issue)

I am not too bothered, other than i paid 99 euros for DHL delivery, which costs 24 euros not DHL/German economic delivery. The important thing is, the statue arrived unbroken. I am currently working on recovering the postal difference
For the moment, the seller has failed to respond. I will give them more time. I am a good ebay'er. If push comes to shove, it will leave me no choice but to contact ebay to deal with the matter. 75 euros is 75 euros.

Maybe the German ebay seller confused the DHL known world-wide with the German postal service?
..as the parcel ended up in the hands of the UK postal service known as Parcelforce.

When i questioned the seller with regards to Parcelforce delivering a DHL parcel they wrote:
'I dont know why that is, maybe because of Corona.'


Other than that, the seller seem's kind of honest, and packs item's well

This arrived today. This is one of those piece's that has been on my wants list for a considerable
time. All i can say is, i am happy to have the piece in my collection. Unlike many 1/4 statues
which require assembly, Shanna comes in just two pieces. Shanna and the reptile. What i call,
a true statue.

I took some outside shots, as i figured that's where Shanna is, having just caught her dinner
Niiice! i remember POing that on release years ago at BBTS for around $350 when 1/4 statues were still that cheap...still packed in the box since day after inspection...

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.
