I finally got a package today that I have been waiting for well over a month, a long distance package from Japan. The envelope contained two packs of Star Wars Bikkuriman chocolate wafers with each pack containing a sticker.
I had seen the Star Wars Bikkuriman stickers on someone’s blog a couple of months ago, Ryan from This Card Is Cool, and I started watching the stickers on eBay. Usually stickers sold for $3-4 each plus sometimes a shipping charge on top of that so when I came across a dealer out of Japan selling two sealed packages for $0.99 plus $3 shipping I jumped on it. There are stickers from Episodes IV-V-VI and stickers from Episodes I-II-III, the packages are marked accordingly. My two are from Episodes IV-V-VI. You can tell by the characters on the packaging plus on the lower right is the label which movies the stickers are from. I pulled a Yoda and Admiral Ackbar.
The downside is that the seller did not send them off right away, almost a month after I purchased them I finally got an email saying they were shipped. Since they were from Japan I figured they would be awhile so I didn’t mind. I got them today and opened them with my daughter, she was more interested in the wafer cookie.
Here is the unwrapping and the wafer cookie is pretty good.
While I was waiting for this package I came across a new dealer from Japan that was selling individual stickers for $0.99 with free shipping so I bought a Yoda (so I have two now) and then the next day I bought a Princess Leia and Chewbacca. The seller had them to me within a week of my purchase and on top of the stickers he also included two origami storks and two packs of green tea. This guy went above and beyond as a seller.
