Saber Lily was shipped out by SAL on July 26th. After about 19 days of waiting, she arrives.
Taking a look at my doorstep, I am greeted with this.

The horror! Looks like it got crushed pretty badly, somehow..

It seems like people don't pay attention to that FRAGILE label anymore, do they?

I've had several things shipped out by SAL before, mainly Figmas and Nendoroids. They all arrived in great condition.
This is the worst package I've gotten.

The paper padding HS put in wasn't enough to protect the figure's box from this kind of damage.

Yeah, it's pretty beat up.

I'd be in rage if this Saber was for me, but she isn't.
Ordered her for Lukalade.
Time to collect the monies.

Ouch.

The front plastic was all twisted and bent in.

The box was pretty roughed up all over.

Not a pretty sight.

Let's hope Saber is okay?

She looks safe from here! Good thing ALTER does a nice job with packaging.

I may rethink my decision when choosing between SAL and EMS from now on.

There's no insurance with SAL, so no compensation for damaged packages.
(Unless you go with Registered SAL, I believe)

Have you ever received a damaged package by SAL?
