Free snacks from purchasing anime figures?Free snacks from purchasing anime figures?

willy156willy15627 päivää sittenAsk MFC
Has anyone ever received free snacks included in their package? I bought nendoroids from HLJ on Januar 31st and they arrived today on February 20th. Inside were my nendoroids but there was also a small package containing chocolates and candy. The note inside said Happy Valentines Day, so I'm not sure if this is a yearly thing HLJ does?

This is my first time ever receiving additional stuff from Japanese online retailers, and I have purchased from amiami, mandarake, and hobbysearch.

Tokyo Otaku Mode used to do this. My brother got chips with several orders. They stopped doing it by the time I had received one of my preorders. :/. I have never received food myself, though. I occasionally get clear files, but I think TOM just includes those with every order, and they aren't special.

Tomoe neL killed my wallet
I love it when people send extra goodies. It doesn't happen super often, but often enough to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside when I think of how kind collectors are. I actually recently got an Eriri Spencer strap from Enderspoink when I purchased an nendoroid off of them. I buy from them a lot and they're always so nice. I love the kindness from our community. I've also had a fair share of kind sellers on ebay who include some small things (but also some really bad sellers on ebay) so it kind of evens out everywhere. I even got a Mami Tomoe figure I didn't have from a seller here on MFC who sent it with one of my figurine purchases - you could probably imagine how ecstatic I was!

I bought a Batman figure from eBay that came with a can of black coffee and a cigarette. Candy for adults I guess O_o

Not candy, but when I purchased something in October from HLJ before they sent me a full sized Halloween themed file with their logo. I thought that was sweet.

I have received quite a few freebies from Japanese sellers on Ebay, mostly snacks and tea, but I did receive ITEM #38482 and ITEM #89991 as freebies as well. As far as HLJ goes, they do on occasion have events where they give out freebies, though I have never received anything when I have ordered during the event time.

I brought a scale figure from an ebay seller last year and they gave me a bonus green tea bag and a note thanking me for the purchase with a little doodle of her lazy cat. I found the doodle very cute and amusing.

I have also brought from mandarake, amiami and big in japan, i haven't received a freebie from them yet which fair enough they're a formal business.

I bought a Figma from an individual seller on Amazon and they sent me a thank you card, a paper crane and some ramune candy. Little gifts like that make me want to start supporting individual sellers more~

I haven't received any free snacks from retailers either, but I've gotten some candies with orders from etsy and other individual sellers, and even some users on MFC. I've gotten a few other small freebies as well, like stickers, postcards and a little Rupee soap when I bought a Zelda pin. They're definitely a fun bonus and I always appreciate receiving them!

I have not gotten any snacks but I would love it! Candy is one of my favorite things ever!

Speaking of candy has anyone bought any candy from amiami? I have always been kind of tempted. Especially the ones that come with minifigs for pokemon.

Also I usually when I sell include a pokemon card. I just have a few packs I bought for the mini figs. I am sure its like only a couple of cents worth but I hope people can at least enjoy the art!

TOM used to send out full-sized snacks and candy a few years ago to try and promote their snack box. (which has since flopped and been discontinued.) That is part of what got me hooked on TOM back in the day, lol.

I haven't gotten snacks from other figure retailers though. Some resin BJD companies would send a candy or two, but that was years ago.
