Whatever the case I never feel bad about ordering from Mandarake. So far every time I've ordered something that they label as "junk" or "bad condition", I am delighted to find that when I get whatever it is I order it is actually in excellent condition. This was no exception. The box was included, and in good condition minus a few tiny dents here and there. Really I've gotten boxes from US sellers that were in worse shape. Lip peel was hardly noticeable, and only one tiny dot for a stain on the back of one foot. I can't complain!
Anyway, here are some pictures of Akira, Akira with Popplio (special thanks to my amazing boyfriend!), and Sakura Shinguji with Nia Teppelin's wig and sweater/shoe set.
