Read the guide buyfag.moe, and don't forget to order Eriri
Eriri is sex. Do want.
This looks so much better than GSC's Sakura Saber
Still waiting for this Saber.
I really hope Grand Order makes some other Servants popular and manufactures don't just churn out endless Saber figures. I'd like some variety.
I highly doubt it will happen, but I'd love to see a Berserker Tamamo.
I didn't get paid until today and a figure I wanted to pre-order on Amiami is listed as closed now, but not sold out
Release date is this month
Will it go up for regular order? Will the price change?
Relatively new to this
Whatever happened to those pins made advertising Senran Kagura and Valkyrie Drive where the characters were using their breasts as beds? I would have bought at least a million or two.
Life's too short to be anal about shit like that.
You could also just not drink coffee in it, just other stuff you drink.
I just personally think its a shame to buy an item that you don't plan on reselling but never use it anyway.
I went with ami on my last order, no forwarder/proxy there.
>He put the wireframe in his detolf in backwards
Hobby List Japan has her for ~10.5k and I really want to pull the trigger. Can't decide if I want to wait until I get a little more money or scoop her up before she's gone, I've never dealt with low-stock items on HLJ before. Any ideas on how much time I've got, or is it a crapshoot?
The things I'm using to hold the dowel are called cable drops on amazon. There are lots of cheap chinese versions you can get instead of the brand name ones.. I might buy a clear acrylic rod to use instead of the wooden dowel though.
I have no idea how to display these straps. There are few more
I told myself I wasn't gonna post again until after I got my /ss/ stuff in but I got grinched so whatever.
Oh well, I don't think I've posted this with Madokami yet anyways.
I'd certainly appreciate the resize if it were an unboxing or something but I can't see shit now
That's a very nice collection but aren't you worried about UV ray degradation? Your window looks open
I'm not sure I want to buy her used, as I've heard stories of breakage and other problems because of some less-than-stellar wings among other things. If I can get a better deal on Ami, I guess I can be patient and wait on more money to come in. If by then she's not up on Ami I'll nab her from HLJ (if she's still in stock).
What's that on the bottom visible shelf of the detolf behind the Miku's?
Since I didn't got any reply in the last thread...
I saw this figure in a second hand store for 2700￥
This is a bit more than I usually spend on superfluous products but she is so cute and so perfect! Should I buy her or this is not a good price? I don't really care much about boxes and stuff.
Also when googling for more information I found this and I'm tempted to pre-order this one too as it is not as expensive as the first one. Is this worth it? Do you think I would be able to find it for cheaper as second hand latter? Probably I will just wait for it to show up on physical stores around here.
Oh, hey I have the same shitty Ikea case.
I fixed my shitty picture orientation
sure why not
You're right, I forgot. My brain must be trying to trick me into buying it as soon as possible. I'll stick it out for a deal for as long as I can, thanks.
I'm also excited to add another Koto scale to my collection, I just cleared off a shelf above pic related and I'd like to fill it sooner rather than later.
Reposted for resized picture.
Picture is a little out of date as I've been trying to sell off some of my manga. I also have yotsuba 1-4 and shirokuma cafe 1-2 in japanese but aren't shown here.
How many figures did you buy in 2015?
I only bought 2. pic related and Dark Elf Bikini Warrior
I started buyfagging very late in the year, so I only bought one figure and one nendoroid. I have more pre-ordered.
According to my MFC history, twelve. That's down from twenty-eight in 2014. Though I also put together a new computer, so net-net it's all probably the same.
>After the Party Sonico
>Nishikino Maki nendo
>Tohsaka Rin figma 2.0
Inubouzaki Fuu from Yuuki Yuuna.
Sorry, I take awful photos. Couldn't be bothered to move the beer bottles. I just got the new Alice figure in and it's cute as hell. I even payed the extra 2k yen for the stupid kokeshi doll. But she's cute as hell and is a great addition to the collection I guess. Wish I didn't have such a cheap looking desk. Watching K-On and Hidamari tonight.
There we go. Now it's correct. Forgot my two favorite Germans in the last one as well.
This one looks really nice but damn are they expensive.
>tfw want to get a daki but dont know how parents will react when they see it
>tfw still no iroha figure and dont know which waifu to buy next
When did this concept get so fucking morphed that people started referring to every anime girl they liked as their waifu? I had a roommate that did that and he was a piece of a shit who visited tumblr on a daily basis. No joke.
If something is 7k on mandarake, and something is 6k listed price on Yahoo auctions, is it cheaper to just use Mandarake? At what point is Yahoo cheaper? I can see these proxies aren't too expensive, but sometimes they have surprise pricing, like oversized boxes, ridiculous shipping estimates, ems only, or long waits and extra fees.
>pretending a anime cartoon character is your "wife"
>When did this concept get so fucking morphed that people started referring to every anime girl they liked as their waifu?
When anime got more popular and people started using the word outside of /a/. Faggots latched onto it until it became the new "favorite character".
>using floppy disks for decoration
That's pretty cool anon
All I'm saying is people don't seem to care about shit anymore even when it comes to their chinese cartoons. I wish more people on modern /a/ were more dedicated to their hobbies. Sure, we used to make fun of people who were socially inept retards, but the concept has really changed since then.
I see squid girl.
What's the anime on screen?
>tfw I got my OPM CD in the mail
>tfw the OP sounds fucking amazing on my Beats
Oh well you live in the era of smartphone. Everything is almost free and these newfag don't even care about quality or supporting their hobbies. They beyond lazy now and dunno even to research. Just google some *le epik anime* then watching anime in bloated streaming site. If they want to discuss just go to top media social on google. If they want buy merchandise just buy something in top of google.
>find my old kodak m530
>it's all banged up with scratches on the screen and one microscopic scratch on the lens
>read half of buyfag supports light boxes rather than investing in serious cameras
>take a picture with decent lighting and its atrocious, my note 5 takes better pictures
What was that camera that one anon was recommending a few weeks ago, if anyone remembers?
I don't think they do. I want to make a custom tripod for my note 5 so I can start getting serious with photos, and maybe one day move up to a DSLR
>not having everything in lossless
Pretty sure they'd sound great on some HD800s
>getting all of that from a simple suggestion
Fuck off Tomoko
Headphone and other audio gear reviews are like wine labels.
Lots of flowery words for trivial properties or nothing at all.
>tfw fell for the m50x meme
Joke's on you fags, they're actually really good for $100. Plus they're durable as fuck so I use them as a nice pair of travel headphones ever since I upgraded my home pair
While i do have alot of anime reactions, i only have this and pic related from biyori
>only listen to anime music
who miophones here
>Miku variation of Strike Freedom flying down and killing everyone
Didn't those dumb Anons buy those cat ear headphones the other month?
>Buyfag is shit without my high test porkloin, my mfc preorder lists and my idols James and Noodles!
It's actually been quite pleasant.
Rightstuf put a bunch of OST CDs on sale for $2 during their holiday sale.
Of course, I bought literally every one. Also an Azumanga Daioh lithograph and some BDs of shit I like and also wild cards because it looked terrible.
and some old VNs.
guest appearances by eggnog, old desk, and this thread.
Where do you guys keep your empty figure boxes? Do you flatten them so they can be assembled in future, or do you just have a room full of empty boxes?
>/hpg/ comes to visit
Oh, right. Too dark to see in the bottom left are the abenobashi magical music mansion, a gunxsword album, and I forgot to put in the bottle fairy four seasons image album and starship operators OST.
that bottle fairy album got some fukn fire on it
Nothing wrong with ラブing the ライブs, anon.
It was in fact my plan. Hestia's cute and, for as average as DanMachi was, it was something I had fun watching.
I'd have preferred having more figures of my waifu than of Hestia but manufacturers only recently broke their streak of making ones that don't look awful.
I'll show you some grain faggot.
And by that I mean my clusterfuck nendo/figma collection. I've been experimenting making my own risers/shelving units to see how much shit one of those $60 ikea vittsjos can possibly hold, as I've always lamented all that wasted air volume between the levels, and turns out it's quite a lot.
This one? It is cool but it is much more expensive and I think the standard version looks good enough.
You're right. Although I recently picked up the revised version, the Q701. I thought they were shit compared to my Sennheiser 598s, so I gave them to my brother for Christmas. Maybe I just don't have what it takes for the whole audio jig.
I bought the M50s because you don't need an amp to use them, so I can just plug them straight to my TV to watch anime, then switch it over to PC if I want to listen to some music or play PC games. I'd probably get K701 if I had enough money to spend on my sound system.
Can a buyfag point me to the light? I saw a fairly large and tall fig of a girl with long purple(?) hair half sitting and half leaning on a stone pillar. She wears black. Its one of the more recent ones I believe since I've seen it around quite a bit.
Do yourself a favor for your ears and get http://www.amazon.com/Shure-HPAEC940-Replacement-Velour-Headphones/dp/B005OM06RG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8 for your m50s. I can wear my M50s for 16 hours a day without discomfort with these replacement pads over the stock ones, its an amazing difference.
Yeah I'm expecting people in this thread to give me shit for the spacing, but actually I think it does look alright in-person at eye-level per row.
Unfortunately the acrylic thickness I used was weaker than I thought it would turn out hence the clear support rod in the middle; if anyone wants to make acrylic shelves definitely do 1/4" for load-bearing ones. Nendo-size risers are fine on 1/8", at least.
Yes unless I explicitly wanted to have an item on display always. I have a Yuno mug which I always
try touse and a complete set on display. Most of the character merchandise mugs are so small you can barely pour a nice portion of drink on them.
Never tried buying from Gathering, does their stuff look as good as it appears?
Sometimes. I think that their Elins are supposed to be good. I don't know much myself so ask someone else
I think posable toys are easier to make look better when packed together than scales. You can do things with the posing to make groups and dioramas.
I have one of those 120cm vittsjos for my scales so I can see it working.
Those shallow nendo steps look good. I was going to go with 7.5-10cm tall steps. It sucks living in a city and not having the space to do diy builds for things like this.
I think you are right. Here is an Elin some anon posted.
Yeah, recasts are made by pouring resin into silicone molds, and even with a lot of expertise little bubbles can get stuck on the insides and it's impossible to know how good or bad they got until it already cured. Also because the molds are really delicate, around sharp parts and deep crevasses/delicate details the mold breaks off in little pieces and then all subsequent recasts after that damage come with defects.
It's up to manufacturer QC on whether they will remake parts for a set, although if the molds are already really worn out some people get the short end of the stick. Or at least from e2046; some manufacturers commit to near-perfect QC but not them. Still though considering e2046's selection there often isn't another choice anyway.
This boat? But hundreds of her have already been posted.
tfw no pvc scale of your husbando
>why live ;_;
>Parcelforce more than a week late
>decide to call them on Thursday
>"oh I can see that you have paid the fees but the system has left it's status as 'held' for some reason, I'll make sure it's out for saturday delivery"
>knock on the door at fucking 7am
>it has finally arrived
It arrived in the UK on the 16th December and I paid the fees on the 18th. I know it's the Christmas period but if they charge a £13 handling fee on top of import fees then I dont expect them to screw me a second time.
Fucking hate Parcelforce.
>tfw paid £20 fees today on alice nendo today
That £13 handling fee is a fucking joke.
The guide in the opening post (>>135557696) has a link to a large and comprehensive figure database with search functions.
They're really disorganized. It helps if you can just collect from their depot. I'm not even going to start on that bullshit handling fee.
My Hoppo nendo just turned up. First package of the year. Off to a good start.
>mine arrived after 9 days shipping with no fees
Rsal can be odd at Christmas.
You should be able to pick up the resin kit at wonfes.
Details look fine on mine, but I (obviously) don't have the original to compare. That being said, I bought a Benisuzume GK (with tons of fine details) from them and it was mostly fine apart from some issues with flash.
That's dumb, I think I'll be fine since both books came out a few days ago. How is domestic shipping for books? If I order five is there a chance I'd have to pay for five separate packages to the same tenso address?
Are there any other announcements of Monster Girl gks at WF? It's probably going to be the only way to get any figures of the girls.
yes, for only a few reasons though
1. easier to mount for stable pictures
2. they can be less awkward to get a picture at some angles(my camera at least, it has a swivel head so any angle I see the screen)
3. your not fucked out of as much money if you accidentally drop it
I really haven't thought about it much, but probably not. With doujin goods like this you're basically subject to buying them as soon as they're available, or you're completely fucked out of buying them altogether. This is one of those things. I have acrylic art panels of Sayori's art which were sold on a Cash on Delivery-only Japan-only store a few years ago, and now the site doesn't even exist.
Had to pay €33 for Fate. VAT a shit.

>mfw I ordered a CD box off amazon.co.jp for 12k anime dollars
>customs try to charge over 600 euros for it
>A real poorfag would not have over $100 a month to spend
He would. He would just not have it at the end of the month anymore. Because he spent it on other shit. Like figurines.
>To report in the last fiscal quarter, (abbv. Q4, 2015. September 30th End.) sales were up domestically and worldwide by 1.2% and 4.6% respectfully. Worldwide sales continue to rise and steadily overtake domestic earnings with the yearly total amounting to 61.7% of Good Smile Company, Inc current reported revenue. We expect this trend to continue in part to the currency exchange ratio between international buyers and domestic retailers. The 2016 forecast puts Good Smile Company, Inc on an overall 2.1% growth due to a confident global market.
That's pretty cool and pretty surprising actually. I wish they'd do another graphic like that Miku one from 2 or 3 years for ago which shows what country people are from. But I guess that wouldn't be that much on an indicator considering that most people don't use their online shop except for exclusives...oh.
Remove octopus dick and fundoshi. Other than that
I can dig that much. Maybe some proper panties instead, and her belly could use a bit more curve.
Mailman drops off mail but no package, go get food in a sad manner and come back to HYPE
Karen's jacket is cute but I don't think it'd be that cute on 3D.
They didn't just want blood for the blood god, they believed that if they didn't feed the universe enough life energy (blood) the universe wouldn't function.
It was less "blood for the blood god" and more "welp, better stop at the next sacrificial altar and top off the tank or else the sun won't rise tomorrow!"
I'm pretty tired of Sins desu, Leviatan was probably my last one.
Sounds pretty straight forward. I had to go through a dozens of calls to get someone who was actually competent enough to help me. Especially since the package was constantly on the verge of being shipped back to Japan due to me refusing it.
