I’ve been getting GSC’s stuff for some time already, and as evidenced from my growing collection..probably deposited my life savings into their coffers. =3 So why this post abput GSC? Well remember pretty pretty Millifi here? Well didn’t I lose her ahoge (hair piece)? So why does she have that poking outta her head..? Read on..read on.. =3
I’ve lost poor Millifi-chan’s ahoge during an outdoor photoshoot a few months back and felt pretty sad about it. I did contemplate about contacting GSC for replacement parts but felt it was kinda unlikely they would do anything about it..until I read this on Mikatan’s blog.
I’ve always been very careful with my figures, but a little while ago I damaged one of my figures through my own carelessness. I’m afriad tha if I try to repair it myself, I’m just going to end up damaging it more. It was quite a special figure to me, so it’s really been eating at me… It was a figure sold over a year ago from Good Smile Company, is it still possible to get a hold of replacement parts in some way?
Read through these posts relating to parts repair!
Unfortunately we can no longer supply replacement parts for figures that are over a year old… In Part 2 of the posts above, I show a way of reinforcing joints by making them thicker. Give it a go and perhaps you can repair the figure to be as good as new all by yourself!
Soooooo…does that mean figures that are under a year old get replacement parts? With hope in my chest, I tried emailing GSC about Milli’s ahoge.
Here’s the whole thing:

Dear Lee Wen Long Sean-san Hello, thank you for your message. We sent you the needed part. Please wait for a little while until the parts arrive
And so arrived the Ahoge!!! It’s really nice GSC made the effort and the shipping for such a tiny piece wasn’t that cheap either. Going by the envelope, it costs around 500+ yen so that was a really awesome gesture on GSC’s part. XD
Millihore wishes for her hair to grow back.
Ask and you shall receive?
It’s a tiny piece of plastic..but still it’s so important to me to have a complete Nendoroid. Thanks to GSC, I now have a ahoge-ish Millihore again and that really really makes my day. In a strange way, I feel happy that I’m getting so much stuff from them because when it counts, they are really there to help. THANK YOU SO MUCH GSC! I don’t know if anyone from GSC will ever see this but hey, it’s a heartfelt declaration nonetheless. =3
Just curious here, did anybody try contacting GSC before for any issues?
