Is anyone a member of the sailor moon fan club?

If yes, are you having any issues trying to be able to order exclusive items to fc members?

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but it seems none of the items ever show up. For example the Sailor Moon Wedding Pullip that is being released.

I was part of the Japanese fan club, but I'm not going to renew this year and instead, I'm going to get the International Membership.

Are you part of the japanese FC or the international one? What are you located?

The international one sometimes gets the FC exclusives, but not all of them. Also, what my friends have noticed is that even though the fan club will announce an exclusive, they aren't clear about an order date.

I'm a member of the international one and it's true that they only offer a sliver of the items available to the Japanese club. I suppose a lot of it is wrapped up in the service that they use to offer the goods there called "King e-shop". My guess is that they haven't been able to partner with a similar service that can handle overseas business/customer service. So, they provide the international offerings directly and don't take Paypal either - just credit cards. This may be pretty costly since it's low volume (the credit card company has to take their fee of course) but I'm not that familiar with setting up online shops... I think not being able to handle customer concerns or issues is probably the biggest deterrent to offering more items if I had to take a guess.

Technically, you could sign up for a Japanese membership (actually, if you have an int'l membership all you have to do is go to the main Fanclub page and turn on the Japanese language option and suddenly you can navigate to the Japanese goods page XD) and have a deputy/proxy service like White Rabbit Express help you get the goods you want. It can be expensive, but if you're selective about what you want it might be worth it. You may have to contact them first though, because they'll require your membership details perhaps... Anyways, good luck!

Hey, I do have the international one and I feel like ordering fan club exclusives is near impossible. Just doesn't seem worth the money most days. I did provide one proxy server my login information but when they went to order it the order date had already ended so it didn't work out but maybe I'll try that again in the future. Anyone else have any better luck ordering fan club exclusives?
