Guys, does AmiAmi reuse parcel registration numbers for EMS? I'm freaking out right now because I plugged in the RN to the USPS tracker and apparently my package traveled back in time and was delivered to/signed for by some fuccboi in Florida.

Fuck. I usually dont come here often unless theres a hype release but i made a fucking stupid mistake this time.

I was preordering figs off amiami, as usual, and I went and looked at one (that i wasnt planning on buying) and I guess, added it to the cart on impulse, because i usually already know what figs im buying and dont wade around in all the things they have. Anyway, i fucked up, and went all the way to confirming the order. I didnt even realise i fucked up until i went and read over my conformation emails today.

Anyway, Can i cancel an preorder with amiami? It doesnt come out for months but their site specifically says you cant cancel orders... I swear I heard people saying theyve canceled orders though.
>>
>>135708749
Depends, i've cancelled three times in the 4+ years ive been with them and havent gotten banned, but I also spend $300+ a month, so its up to you the risk.


What figure was it? You may be able to find a buyer for your pre-order.

What's your method of measuring valuation?
sometimes it's best waiting 6-12 months for real market prices to be set in. after that you can snag something you wanted at a discount to the retail prices, if your lucky. Even if your not they barely appreciate above 50% outside rare cases,

They have the cheapest exclusives figures (I'm talking about the preorders only) unless you have some kind of proof.

Their shipping fees are way too high, they just guess how much it will cost when you preorder and they don't change it when they tell you to pay.

The easiest one was registered SAL until they removed it for germany, now they only offer SAL, Air Mail and EMS.

SAL is slow af and has no tracking/insurance, EMS is fast but expensive,
Air Mail is still pretty fast but a bit cheaper so I usually use it.

>Do you hate money?

Are you bullshitting me? Where the fuck is it supposed to be cheaper than in local shops?

https://figuya.com/de/taxons/rory-mercury
95 Euro for her on a local shop.
http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=FIGURE-015928
10000yen plus 2700 for SAL shipping equals about 100 Euro. And you have to pay import tax too. Even if you undervalue you will still have to pay a few Euro tax. You will end up being around 110 Euro if you find her cheap at a place that undervalues.
And then of course you also have to go out of your way to pick her up from the customs office.

How the fuck are local shops not massively superior you faggot?

You are wrong at comparing Kotobukiya stuff.
Kotobukiya figures are always cheaper at Figuya, but that's the only one.
Everything else is more expensive.

How do you ship large amount of figures if most places refuse to combine them unless they release within the same month?

Do you order like 3 figures a month? Otherwise you won't save much by combined shipping.

>You really only safe a few euro in the end or nothing at all.
You're stupid. Here, have an actual example:
http://www.abyssecorp-direct.com/fr/ Here's a French local shop.
Domestic shipping fees are approximately 8 euros.
This Shiro figure (pic related) is 122.34 + 8 € = 130 €
On Big in Japan, it's 11 790 + ~2000 yen for SAL = approximately 110 € (with a really shitty EUR/JPY rate)
20 euros difference and you get your figure 2 months earlier.
And that's just for one figure.

Bought her on AmiAmi for 12130 and 2320 air mail shipping, 14450 yen complete.
I payed 109,49€ through Paypal.

As the shipping costs aren't listed on air mail packets, they only calculate the taxes for the figure costs.

The official exchange rate for this month was 137,31, which comes down to:
12130/137,31 = 88,34€

As it is below 150€, you only have to pay 19% EuST which is:
88,34€ * 0,19 = 16,78€

The complete costs here were 126,27€.

On the other hand, you have Figuya, the figure there was 169,90€ and you had to wait 2 months for her.

And I would say that 43,63€ saved is pretty good.

No. It doesn't matter if your package is marked as a gift in France, it will still get taxed if the written value is higher than 22 euros.

I always use something like 2000 yen (even for EMS stuff that always get checked) and I've never had a problem.

Never heard of that. Depends on the country I guess. Here they don't give a fuck.

Nah Kotobukiya figures almost never get hard to get. Look at Amazon.co.jp sales.

I wouldn't consider 17 euros ok for uninsured shipping. It's not like I tried before (when ebay wasn't as retarded as it is now). But most people don't want to pay that much for shipping and a reasonable price for the figure itself. Using paypal is also a guarantee to lose not only your figure but your money.

Depending on the eu country you live in you can sell stuff locally, like if you are german sell it on ebay kleinanzeigen. and I have seen a lot of french selling figurs with no shipping to their own country.

And the seller has to pay shipping so its not like this is your problem. You can always find somebody willing to buy a good figur on mfc if its hard to get.
>>
>>135712684
*the buyer has to pay shipping

I've been trying to sell stuff on mfc for three years now without success. And it's not like I offer that stuff for outrageous prices. I've also considered Kleinanzeigen, but since you barely even see figures on there, it'd probably take forever to sell it.

Is there a decent way to scan figures? An old friend is giving me his old oculus dev kit and i'm thinking about creating a vr figure display room where the user can design can customize their room in any way and later on eventually invite others to their room. Only thing i'm worried about is actually getting the figures into a vr environment.
>>
>>135712817
When you live in a small, irrelevant country, if you want to be competitive, then you may need to drop your prices so the price with shipping is lower than domestic prices elsewhere.
>>
>>135712874
You'd probably run into issues with the creators, since a scan nice enough to display might also be nice enough for 3D printing/bootlegging. Not to mention some shady fuck might crack it and add figures they don't actually own to the thing, defeating the purpose of it being a private room.

I already did so in the past when I sold stuff on ebay. But I'd rather trash the figure instead of giving them away for the ridiculous offers some people make.

Can someone explain to me what the "Same Item(s) in Other Store(s)" section in Mandarake is?

If I look for an item and they don't have it in stock I can usually find that item in the "Same Item(s) in Other Store(s)" section, but what are these other stores? Aren't the "stores" just different users selling their stuff on Mandarake?

Example: When I look for that Tharja figure it says "sold out"

That is what I am thinking too. I don't understand this shop. It is like ebay where users sell their stuff or not? The guide says nothing about it.

Mandarake is a chain with many stores around Japan, it's nothing like ebay, they own all the merchandise they sell.
So if something is sold out in one of their stores it's possible it's in stock in another store.

Here it says "Sold out" but
http://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1036489765

So how good is the Dark Elf bikini warriors scale?

Trying to decide whether to blow nearly 200 cdn on one or just buy 2-3 other scales.

Exactly. She's an only child too so she has gotten pretty much whatever she's wanted up until recently. We're having to explain that she can't have every toy that she sees because she tends to stop playing with them pretty quickly. That and she made bank for Christmas so she can buy her own toys if she really wants them.

Either Gourai has a bootleg or some people are getting some real good deals from the ones out of China. Yet there's nothing on MFC about her yet. Someone has to buy the first bootleg to realize that bootlegs exist, and then you're assuming that whoever bought the very first bootleg posts about it.

common sense is pretty important to good buyfagging. With the startup costs of bootlegging, it's all or nothing. There will either be many or none (save basically garage kits). The one thing you've been right about is the "all bootlegs are documented" greentext. That's more accurate than you know.

it's $99 on amazon us. If I actually gave a damn about that shit figure Im sure I could find cheaper elsewhere.

I've been wondering for a little bit if there's any sort of demand for custom figures either produced by 3D resin-based printing or through resin casting silicone moulds.
Or is a big part of buying figures in the brand of the manufacturer?

Already exists: http://www.shapeways.com/

Main barrier is quality hand painting is very labor intensive and thus expensive and current colored printing produces shitty results. As for resin cast models that's effectively what garage kits are.
>>
>>135722109
Some of the SLA 3D printers look like they are able to produce some pretty good results.
It's difficult to really tell without doing some test prints and I'm not about to throw down ~3k for some trial prints.
I figure the banding you see on the resin can be hidden through some buffing and paint. Making silicone moulds and casting the resin looks like a fun but time consuming process too.

I'm probably what would be considered hygienic for an anon. Go ahead and buy your testicle sweat PVC cuz

$80 for Aoi.

Just ordered her today at Yellow Sub and have ordered Mage a while ago too.
I just can't decide if Hunter is worth it.

Also is there a huge difference between the Mage from Alphamax and the one from Megahouse?
I think the Alphamax one actually fits better in line with the others as it's more of a fighting pose.

>3d printers are pretty much perfected for this sort of thing
Wont crash until 3d printers can handle the paint jobs. Until then the assembly line methods used on PVC figs will still be the most economical.

They're already designing toys with this in mind. Desktop Army line is selling the high quality base figure with the idea that you can print add-ons or expansion packs.

It'll take decades to reach the point where printing is cheap, high quality, and colored as well as a high quality toy. Model kits might tank, but anything pre-assembled will cost just as much.

3D Printing is promising but it's not up to the quality of hand sculpting and molding just yet.
The biggest reason why people buy brand name figures is because of the flawless paint job. Computers and machines cannot paint at the quality of GSC or Alter. Those companies paint them by hand.

If I were you, I'd get started in learning how to 3D render for when printers can produce high quality fully painted figures. Just check out 2015's top figures. They are all hand painted with high quality eye stickers.

The bootleg market exists currently. The VAST majority of people are still willing to pay more for something higher quality, and again, 3D printing won't get paint right for decades yet.

Does anyone say they actually hand paint? Pretty sure they just do a few minor details that the machines can't handle, or would cost too much to implement.

>>135722221
I wasn't talking so much about a business of just taking misc. designs and printing them. I need a hobby and the hand-painting would be interesting to pick up and get good at I think.
I see all these booths at fanime and sacanime in the artists alley and they're either posters, drawings, pins, badges, or hand-made lolita accessories. Why not custom models? I feel people would want to come up to a booth, talk to a person face to face, and either buy a model they normally wouldn't be able to find, or put in a commission to have their waifu created for them while supporting an artist. Maybe I'm just really really wrong about the whole idea though.

>>135722289
Neat.

>>135722391
I already do 3D work. ZBrush sculpting and, back in the day, low-poly speed-modeling challenges with Blender were my jam. So, basically, I should focus on developing some hand-painting skill?
>>
>>135722401
No I'm not? It's no different than the current bootleg market. The fastest/cheapest way of painting is still the same Chinese factories that produce the real and bootleg figures these days.

idk 10+ years of advancement in technology that is going to be in demand for a lot more than just figures is going to be a lot better than just painting. I'd personally give it 5 years given the massive advancements in 3d printing in just a couple years currently.

>>135722511
Sure. There are people who paint figures on commission. I imagine you could also do custom sculpts and just print them with a service like shapeways. The issue is that the market for it is kinda small since the usual labor involved makes it very expensive compared to mass market figs.
>>
>>135722609

Idk being able to get any figure you want for cheap is definitely going to outweigh watching figures prices rise to ridiculous levels just for you to never sell them.
>>
>>135722283
Aww, fuck it, I'll just buy the Hunter too.
Should I get Fighter and Paladin too, only to complete the series or should I wait and hope I don't want them in the future?

>>135722774

Just noticed Hunter's bow actually has a string, it's now a 10/10 model, will preorder soon.

Paladin is boring as shit, and Fighter's panties might be too tight for her own good.

Yeah, I'd like to see you print a convincing gradient like >>135722539 and also do multi-material (styrene/metal).

I agree that there will probably be printers that can do it in 10 years, but mass produced painted figures would still be VASTLY cheaper.

Kind of a tangential question, but does anyone use Aspiration for banking? I could stand to open another bank account, and their no-fee policy, ATM reimbursement, and foreign transaction rate (at most 1.1% instead of Paypal's 2.5% or my current bank's 3%) seems good. They just kind of seem too good to be true, though, so I was wondering if any buyfags had experience with them.
