I'm trying to pull the trigger on this bust on Awesome Collector. Has anyone ever shopped with them before? Do they double package their items? Charge Sales tax (CA resident)? Customer service experience?

Arrived this week from Sideshow. Really impressive piece, it's bigger in person than it appears in the product photos.
Also a note to people, it does not include the power cable, it requires a USB-C cable which can go to a USB wall power adapter so you'll have to get one separately yourself, you might have one sitting around they come with a bunch of things these days, I used one from an old phone.

I was considering getting this as my first ever "life size" bust because this piece came out spectacular but $400 shipping from Sideshow to Texas!.... F**k that. I'll just enjoy this bad boy from a far. Congrats to those who have this in hand.

Order it directly from Prime 1 in Japan. I've ordered stuff directly from them, and it's great. Slow boat shipping to Texas is only $275, and there's no sales tax! (Also, yes, I'm in Texas.)

No issues here, just make sure you plug the wire from the bust to the base and find a USB-C cable with a power adapter to get the power, it's unfortunate that it doesn't come with a cable but if you don't have one you can get one for cheap.

Well, it all depends on your disposable income and narrowing your "collecting range".
I have learned real quickly that downsizing and focusing on specific collecting is way more
affordable than trying to collect all the things you "like".
