CHARMS CLAIMS POST


(NOTE: I [mamoswine] am running this post just to help get a load off Gin/denkimouse's back, with all the shopping lists she has to compile, plus actually getting the charms, and all the packaging and shipping she has to do. She wrote this post, and all the guidelines, so please read it as such!)


CLAIMS ARE NOW CLOSED.

These are the rules for claiming charms. Read them ALL. You will need to read all of them and include certain pieces of information in your comment as proof you read and agree to all of these rules. One of the pieces of information is a password. Please include it in your comment (anywhere in your comment and in any sort of sentence or context, or just stand alone).

If you don't include the password or the other required things, your comment will be screened or deleted and your order won't be added! You'll need to repost with the proper information! Please understand! These charms are a wild ride and very popular, so without everyone working together and following rules it would be such a mess.

Continue on to the rules, including information on slots, waves, and prices below!



Slots:
For Generations 1-4, 5 slots per evolutionary group/stand alone.
Only Eevees get 15 slots.

You may not claim multiples of the same set. Please only comment with your own claims; posting claims for your friends causes confusion and is unfair to others.

No exceptions.
If the group you want is sold out, do not whine, do not whimper, do not complain, you'd better not pout and you'd better not cry. Because:
-these charms will be all over eBay and Y!J;
-other members in Japan might get some for resale;
-the chance I will go back to get more from the same wave if the first run goes well, is high.


Waves info:
We do not yet know which Pokemon are in which wave. You will be invoiced per wave, not all together for all the charms you get.
The waves spread out over two full months -- I cannot hold your charms until all of the waves are out. You MUST pay for your charms as they come out.

For the first wave, I can only combine with Sunyshore orders that are placed BEFORE payment is collected on December 26th. Please keep the order number handy and include it WITH YOUR PAYMENT if you wish to combine.

Again, some charms will not be out until February 2nd, when the final wave comes out. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TAKE A SLOT UNLESS YOU ARE 100%, WITHOUT A SINGLE SHADOW OF A DOUBT POSITIVE YOU WILL PAY WHEN THE INVOICE POST IS MADE. That means you will have the money ready to send the day the charms come out (reminders will be posted before the second and third waves. By the way, the p-word is "weasels!"). If you do not pay within a few days of being invoiced, you will get negative feedback and will lose ALL of your charms claims. PLEASE act mature and responsible about payments.

Finally, costs:
1 charm set: 6$
2 charm set: 10$
3 charm set: 13$
4 charm set: 14$
5 charm set: 16$
6 charm set: 17$
7 charm set: 19$
8 charm set: 25$

Shipping/handling costs:
1 set: 6$
2-5 sets: 8$
5-10 sets: 10$
10-15 sets: 14$
15-20 sets: 18$
20-30 sets: 25$
30+ sets: will require an EMS upgrade, cost to be determined.

You can take 3$ (TOTAL) off your final cost if you combine with a PREVIOUSLY made order. See above about combining orders.

Add your own total cost up (not including shipping, since it will be determined once we know what's in each wave and what will ship when) and include it with your comment. This way:
1. More proof you read the rules!
2. No surprises when invoices are posted!
3. We can double-check each other's math!

FAQ:

Q: Not only am I not on the lists, I can't even find my comment!
A: Your comment was screened or deleted because you didn't include the password or follow the rules. There will be no reminders to read the rules more carefully. Repost it after reading the rules.

Q: Also, *friend* wants *Pokemon*!
A: Sorry, but friend needs to post a comment for themselves. You may take other friends' claims under your own name, but remember it's going to be one transaction and you are limited to 1 claim per set of Pokemon!

Q: Can I combine my charms with ...?
A. If it's in my shop (sunyshore.com/cart) then yes you can. Place the order before December 26th, mention you want me to hold it to combine with charms in the note, then include the order number when you pay for your charms, and take 3$ off your total.

Q: Can/will you split up evolutionary sets?
A: No.

Q: Can/will you hold my charms until all the waves are out?
A. No.

Q: How are the Pokemon split up into sets?
A: By their evolutionary group and possibly also with their alternate formes. We are not sure about the latter. That means a set of 4 would be, for example, the Tyrouge line. A single set would be, for example, Zapdos, or Stunfisk, Pokemon that do not evolve. Basically, if they evolve to or from another Pokemon, they will be grouped together.

Q: What do these charms look like? How big are they?
A: You can see some preview shots in this post http://pkmncollectors.livejournal.com/10868635.html and the charms are roughly 1.5-2 CM tall not including their metal clasp.

Q: Do you know which Pokemon have different poses from last time? What's up with formes? (I.E. Shaymin and 'Skymin', Giratina Another and Origin formes.)
A. No. But probably most of them. As for formes, we aren't certain of that yet either. Please assume they are basic for now.

Q: If *Pokemon* is the same pose I don't need it. Can/will you only get it for me if it's different?
A: No. Either reserve it or don't. If the pose is the same, you can resell it later.

Q: So if I order 8 sets of charms, it's 25$ for "8 charm set", correct? A: No. An 8 charm set is a set with 8 charms in it (this big a set only includes the Eeveelutions). The prices are per set, each set's size being determined by how many Pokemon are in that evolutionary group.

Q: Can I hoard a bunch of the slots JUST to resell these charms at inflated prices later?
A: Please don't do this. I am doing this so people can get the charms right when they come out and for a cheaper price than most places will offer. Don't take slots from someone who might not be able to afford an inflated price later on. It's just not nice.

Q: I don't like your rules, the commission you charge, etc.
A: Charms will be available from other sources! Thank you though!


If you read down to here, then you can begin preparing your order and post it as a comment below. Remember to include the total cost, and the password, to show you read, understand and agree to all my conditions.

EDITED NOTE: WAVE 3 CHARMS WILL NOT BE SHIPPED UNTIL THE LAST WEEK OF FEBRUARY!

THE POST HAS BECOME TOO BIG FOR LJ TO HANDLE!!! Please GO HERE to check the list! Sorry for the inconvenience!

GEN. 2 AND GEN. 3 CLAIMS ARE CLOSED! WAVE ONE IS OVER AND CHARMS FROM THE WAVE (Kanto) ARE UNAVAILABLE! Gin will post if she will be doing another small run of sorts! Please do not ask for Gen. 1 Pokemon; there is no claims and no waitlist for them anymore.

I have compiled a list of what's gone/unavailable.
If you request charms that are gone, I will add you to a missed/waiting list; Gin is not guaranteeing another run any waves, but if she does, it's first come first served from the waiting list.

Please make a new comment if you wish to claim more charms! This makes it easier to reply to you to confirm you've been added!!

GENERATION 4:
Shinx line, Pachirisu, Buizel line, Drifloon line, Gible line, Riolu line, Giratina, Shaymin.

GENERATION 5:
Victini, Snivy line, Tepig line, Oshawott line, Purrloin line, Blitzle line, Audino, Venipede line, Cottonee line, Scraggy line, Archen line, Zorua line, Minccino line, Emolga, Joltik line, Litwick line, Axew line, Mienfoo line, Rufflet line, Deino line, Cobalion, Virizion, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem.
