They're later than I would like (technically, anything after four in the afternoon is later than I would like), but the Thursday specials are once again done and ready for your perusal! Have I managed to tempt your palate, or are you perhaps directing all your attention to our Funimation sale as it winds up its run?

So speaking of One Piece, as I was last week, today I got my latest toy, chibi arts Princess Shirahoshi! She is in all ways too adorable, and - bonus! - doesn't need her stand to recline on my desk with Megalo at her side. And if I should ever tire of her, Barnaby's head is going on her straight off, followed by, oh, let's see... I haven't checked if chibi arts and nendos are interchangable yet. Hmm, Vocaloid mermaids could be fun...

New Great Eastern Policy
Hey, have you noticed that occasionally Great Eastern products can take what seems like forever to come in? Yeah, we noticed that too, and Shawne doesn't like it when we can't get your orders to you right away because you're waiting on, say, a towel. In response, we're working on a system with GE to keep better track of stock levels and product availability. This means we'll be removing GE products from our store if we don't think we'll be able to get them in, and re-listing them later if we find out they've become available again.

Hopefully this will resolve the long wait times, and should be pretty transparent, but if you find yourself with any questions please feel free to ask in this thread (generalities) or contact Customer Care (specific orders).

Fight Child Slavery with Right Stuf and Compassionate Journeys
We're proud to announce a new program to allow fans to join us in supporting Compassionate Journeys, a non-profit organization that supports those who work to rescue and empower trafficked children in Ghana, West Africa. Please consider joining us as we support this very worthwhile cause.

Shawne set this up personally, so if anyone chooses to donate I know he'll be very happy. Myself, my favorite part about the charity is its goal to create a sustainable economy via farming to reduce the reliance on charity and its focus on the future, not just today.

We've added live chat!
