>refer to a document instead of asking questions
Then what are we supposed to do in the thread?
Oops, that's a question. Let me re-phrase.
I wonder what we are supposed to do in the thread if we can't ask questions and questions are the backbone of an intelligent discussion.
Frenchdoll finished his latest project.
The lighting effects they used make it look worth the price. Barbatos is a cool guy. Any opinions on this particular line?
It's the same as in the last thread.
You can ask questions, you are just not supposed to ask stupid questions which can either be answered by the guide, google or thinking.
Also, if anyone wants to fix the alignment, go ahead.
Guys. Wonfes is only a month away. I am really excited.
>Witchcraft Works scales/nendos never
All I want is a Tanpopo-chan, is that too much to ask?
Where can I commission silly hats? I like the cat one.
Does anyone know where I can find these Gurren Lagann kits? From what I know they are made by Daibadi and were released last year, I checked amiami and mandarake and I couldn't find anything
I think that you are going to have trouble finding these. If you looked at their mfc page you'd know that they are limited exclusive garage kits. So I don't think very many of them exist.
Congratulations. You've found a holy grail to seek. Maybe learn how to search Yahoo auctions and check it religiously. Also. There have been two of the yoko ones on mandarake in the past. I'm not interested enough to search further. Use their japanese names.
I can't wait to sink myself into these huge fucking tits.
What other figures have big ass titties like this?
The frame better have some die-cast considering that price tag.
A good portion of what will be there is posted in the weeks leading up to it to build up hype but a lot of stuff is first seen at the event.
Aside from major manufacturers showing off their prototypes and announcements for future releases there are people with a wide range of skill and tastes showing off their own sculpts and selling their garage kits.
That is really cool. I've only snapped together 1/144's before so an internal frame is really cool to me. Maybe when I slow down on buying scales I will look into getting some fancy robots.
New line of ichiban kuji madoka prize figures.
>The other faggot
>trying to replace the original
I am looking forward to seeing this in person.
I chose rsal. She might be docked in japan for some time
Flare updated there blog and said something about an april release.
This one? I like her. Very endearing. For sure worth dancing in joy for.
Bit on the light side though if it's not just lighting. If her skin ends up like Amakuni's Sansei I'm going to kill myself.
I keep my shipping boxes and the paper that amiami sends me. I need to find more stuff for my january so I can get another big box for my stack.
Is her jacket supposed to be leather? I wonder how it would look if they tried for a leathery texture.
I throw away all my nendo and figma boxes. There's no need to keep them since I store all the accessories in a separate container and it's pretty easy to pack them if you ever move.
No. It's cloth.
Got ya covered.
>James is still around
Well not surprising I guess.
That meme turned to shit really quick. I am glad it died.
It was clear that after the first post someone who lacked creativity and ability tried to force it. There was no conclusion. Just irritation. I think that it stopped when the posts started getting deleted.
I wonder what 2016 will have in store for us.
Guide doesn't have anything, and I'm sorry for the noobish question, but can someone confirm whether or not you still need a middleman for taobao? Someone on /toy/ mentioned you could do it without an agent
at least from some vendorsbut that was the first I've heard of it.
Well, those are the Danbooru pictures, I actually meant source for >>135814948 and >>135814853, those are from MFC which led to this figure (Already posted, I know, I just didn't figure this >>135814753 was from this >>135814853)
Also found this delicious picture, but this is still MFC and not a blog or something else leading to more info/pics.
Maybe check if they have a shop on aliexexpress or see if you can contact the vendor. I've also heard that /cgl/ has a dedicated taobao thread but last I checked it was mostly devoted to clothing. Still they might know something.
You probably already know how to use a middleman but in case you don't or someone else reading is interested I've used yoybuy and it works. It has an easy to use interface and seems to be a fairly large operation for this sort of thing. If you want to spend the time searching for something cheaper I am sure several exist.
It's up to you to reverse image search things and find more information. I'm done posting about her now, too many normals picking up on it. Thank god it will never get an adaptation.
You don't have to like it. Even if you keep up with all the major manufacturers tweets and blog posts there is always someone at the ready to update MFC with new pictures and information. I used to try and post everything new in these threads first and even with a 4chan pass I would often lose.
I wish Paladin and Fighter were as nice as Hunter and your dick.
Is this really going to only be available on the GSC website and not on other sites?
>have been waiting for this moment for a year and a half
>will get associated with the cancerous fanbase it picked up with the anime adaptation
You bet your ass it is, anon.
Seriously, if she doesn't get any figures I'll be disappointed. Good quality figures at that.
>GSC's figma Link accessory jew
That is actually hilarious. How soon before scales get essential accessories made exclusive?
>The DX edition that will be released in limited quantities. The DX edition will include a bomb, hook shot, a tornado rod, a green rupee, a clay pot and a baby Maiamai!
Your getting a figma with no accessories if you dont get DX
>pre-order from amiami for the points
>get fucked by GSC and their exclusive extras
The figma line is really going to shit recently. The price increases over the past couple of years I was OK with. The quality improved massively and you got a good bunch of accessories. Then they started with exclusives. Now the prices are still going up except they're cutting back on accessories, making them exclusives and the quality isn't getting much better.
I've all but given up on the line now. I've only been picking up the KanColle ones. Those still seem to be good value.
It's even worse with how much smaller the pre-order window is for GSC. There are a lot of exclusive parts I want but the pre-orders on GSC's site closed, meaning the only option is amiami or hope someone on MFC decides to sell off their pre-order.
Shit like this is why I stopped buying Nendos. GSC have gone full jew as of late. I never bothered buying figma because >jointshit but those of you who still do have my sympathies.
Bad times ahead.
>Not getting the bomb for the second Kirby whose hat you repainted.
> Bad times ahead.
It's fine for me at least. Koto have got my back with FAGs, Tomytec with little guns and Azone with picco neemo clothes and accessories. All of which are better value than figmas.
Figma only look good on characters that were meant to be action figures, since they usually have more elastic poses that make the joints look less conspicuous.
Any figma that shows skin on their knees and elbows (like the Love Live figmas, for example) look like absolute steaming trash.
You can't see it, but there's a weird rash that the phone is blocking. She's taking a pic to send to her doctor because she won't be able to make it in for a check up anytime soon. Let's hope it's nothing serious.
>Shit like this is why I stopped buying Nendos
I'm willing to sell my soul a bit longer. Nendos still only have exclusives very rarely, and I need to finish my Witch lineup. After that, it's a full switch over to Koto and
Same. Nendos and Figma were cool when they were $30 and came with 3 or 4 accessories minimum. Now they are $50 with 1. Sure they do look a bit better now, but that's natural progression of skill and technology.
Just jew bullshit. But I buy less figures now aswell, just decided I have enough and 1 or 2 more a year is plenty for me.
I don't understand why you people are screaming jew about the DX edition. It's basically 2500 more for the accessories. But for Japanese it's much less because of the shipping difference. This is a better option than 1500 more for half the accessories and baseline price.
I would buy more DX versions if they were available. 5800 for a figma with 1 accessory is bullshit pricing.
>Buying figma in the first place
Save your money and buy a decent static figure instead. There's a reason why most scale figures are more valuable than jointshit, you know.
I honestly only think Paladin looks bad. The only real issue I have with Fighter is that she doesn't have much clothing so she kind of just looks like a really detailed BQ with a sword and shield.
Paladin doesn't look all that great and has a pretty boring pose too.
Hoihoi, FAGs, Cu-poche are pretty much Nendoroids but better in every way aside from the poor licenses Koto has, but that's a self correcting problem as the line gets bigger. Hell, they even have the Shinki license and seem to be willing to use it.
If 2015 wasn't the year of Koto already, 2016 definitely will be.
As far as Nendos are concerned it was the price rises more than anything to do with the accessories that made me stop buying them.
I remember when you could buy Nendos for less than 3, 000JPY back in 2012/13. Now they cost just under 4, 000JPY (and that's with Amico's discount, it closer too 5, 000JPY otherwise).
At this point for the cost of two Nendos I can literally buy a decent-tier scale. Utterly ridiculous.
That's your country's fault not GSC. They have to market for Japan and now Chinese speaking countries.
Sucks for you, but you were just born in the wrong place.
You probably live in a shitty country too for importing.
3000 jpy in 2012 when it was 80 jpy per US dollar in 2012/2013 is virtually the same as 4600 jpy at 120 jpy to usd. It's actually a little less because you have to consider shipping is much cheaper.
For anyone in the US the price of Nendoroids and figma have only changed because they include less accessories for the same price.
finally, a cheap figure I wouldn't care about getting dirty with my hotglue
What's all this import tax you yuropoors and canadians talk about? I've never had to pay for anything other than whatever i've buying and the shipping, but then again I live in the US and not a shitty country.
>people are actually replying to tripfags
Disgusting. You are the fucking problem.
I think the nendoroids are better than the figma at this point. I have a few figma but the only ones I'd really want to hang onto are Kaiji, Griffith and Samus Aran. At least with nendos there are a lot of accessories and pieces that can be swapped around, it's not as easy with figma.
>That's your country's fault not GSC.
It's partly their fault by virtue of them not offering any other shipping options. I'm a burger, but I've heard RSAL virtually eliminates customs issues for brits, for example.
Fuck GSC. Exclusive faceplates are bad enough, but an entire set of iconic accessories is bullshit. Hopefully at least one of the partner shops has a decent price for him, otherwise I guess I'll start stalking Mandarake and YJA in August.
I'll only order from GSC's shop if no US-based shop has him available or if they jack up the price. And even then I'll only order him if there's something else in GSC's shop I can combine to offset the shipping a little.
Otherwise I'll try to find one second hand for a decent price, or just not get it at all.
Good. Let your desire flow through you and grant you strength.
It's much harder to scam with EMS shipping. You're also much less likely to deal with complaints. And also with flat shipping they don't have to bother with calculating and verifying a payment. Which is why they don't offer it.
They went with the simplest least risky way to ship. If they had more options for shipping it would cost more, but it wouldn't necessarily increase sales.
If you sold things online you would know this. If you offer snail mail international shipping you'll get more sales, but even one $200 scam will set back a ton of profits. If you sell only 3/4 as much, but get no scams it's worth it sometimes.
That's why there's so few export companies that do SAL. Think about it. Even TOM didn't start offering SAL until it had an established customerbase.
The people complaining are mostly just poorfags or people that live in customs countries. Doing that is only financially viable for a minority of people according to the guide.
2k for one figma on top of the already expensive retail price is ridiculous. I don't care for the idea of reselling, partly because I don't want to go through the hassle but also because there's a chance it won't sell for the same amount I paid. I'd rather buy things I actually want then buy stuff to try to resell.
I doubt GSC's pre-orders will sell out before the cutoff date, so I'm just going to wait and see what happens at other stores first.
GSC isn't some rinky dink, podunk operation. They decided to actively screw over many overseas customers to maximize their own profits. It's not unreasonable for people to be upset by this, especially with the exclusive item jewery on top of it.
For anyone else who is also waiting, Pochaco mousepads are expected to ship in February and arrive around early March.
GSC is one of the only companies that actually does this because of their size. The problem is you're thinking hundreds of millions of dollars, when it's really just a few million dollars. This is a fringe hobby, even in Japan.
The alternative way to operate is how Kotobukiya does it.
So what? My statement is still accurate, faggot. You should probably worry about sucking your boyfriend's cock so he doesn't leave you instead of what other people have interest in.
Get a payment invoice from AmiAmi saying the order weighs too much for Reigstered SAL, so it automatically changes it to SAL Parcel. EMS is only like $5 more. Uhhhhhh, thanks but no thanks, I'll take EMS.
Well I just played the demo and it's great, much better than the original, so I guess I can't keep avoiding the inevitable (purchase).
Be strong and wait for Gift's version.
I'm pissed that I missed out on the 3D crystal though.
Hopefully I can find one on the aftermarket, preferably without the game so I don't have to buy it twice. There's so many preorder bonuses with this game you'd have to buy it 18 times from 18 different stores to get them all.
Ask a guy who will be in debt next month because of this stupid "hobby" anything.
I didn't believe the memes and this is where it got me.
>not even gunpla
people like this amazes me
like seriously how do you not know how much money you need to keep yourself alive? or if you do then how could you possibly think spending that money is ok?
Probably around 300000 JPY?
I'm not too sure, just a quick estimate.
Sure oh wait I don't.
Nah, I'd rather be in debt for a while. I can pay it off within two months.
How exactly are you -alive- without your plastic figures?
I sure as hell aren't.
Medically alive maybe, but my spirit would die.
Nah, and it's unlikely to happen.
Just how many figures do you have to buy to become that desperate?
With all that shit taste some dick taste wouldn't hurt either way.
I don't really see anything wrong with it.
A ton of orders and other expenses just happen to hit next month and I'm not cancelling anything because of this.
The amount of debt is really minor, so whatever.
Just meant to air my dubious distinction of getting into debt because of plastic.
E2046 is partly to blame.
I'm beginning to resent "Sales".
Anyone here use Bhiner before? I bought pic related from Taobao, under the impression that it was sealed (some guy named Chen that was gonna be my buy agent told me), but Bhiner uploaded pictures they took of the fucking figure out of the box. Was the item never sealed, or would those idiots break a seal to get a shot of the blister pack?
Found your problem.
Doesn't sound like you've ever been on twitter.
In any case, I'm not so sure inviting people to laugh at you is attentionwhoring.
It might be, but it generally is not what attentionwhores want to accomplish.
I don't know, I can't tell. Im trying to get them to confirm it was described as new on Taobao, but they have sort of implied was true, but keep mistaking me and saying "sorry friend this Taobao item out of stock" etc
Twitter has singlehandedly niggerfied my closest friends. Now they talk/text like pic related with those faggot emojis
Just ordered this unlucky little shit. Suggestions for keeping the rest of my collection safe?
Sorry to overstrain your intellectual faculties like that, I guess.
It is new apparently. Was worried, and no fucking clue why they think it's a good idea to break a seal for confirmation photos. Good thing I'll actually be displaying it
>giving into jewsmile for a shitty link figma
im sorry mom ;_;
amakuni is less and less impressive with every figure release. They started out super strong. Now it seems like every other release is hit or miss. Kind of a bad thing when 100% of your figures are limited and exclusive.
They've always produced a lot of mediocre figures, appeal wise; the quality was always pretty good.
The whole 'exclusive' thing actually makes them sell better, I believe, especially their shitty ones.
The great ones would instant sell out either way.
E2046 is selling this GK, and they have a version up that, I can only assume, they have painted for you. I doubt she's worth the price, but I'm still very tempted.
Anyone know the release date for the Umaru nendo rerelease?
Dude how the hell are you going to actually know if it was cut or not just by asking them when you weren't there to see it yourself? You realize how stupid this is right? Even if it was sealed and they themselves opened it, you have no way to 100% know it for a fact. Take this as a lesson learned, accept it, move one, and don't bother with stuff like this next time.
I'm trying to get this. They have a bunch of plushies too.
Just do it.
Start easy. Get some jars, paints, thinner, lacquer, glue, brushes, pin-vise and crocodile clamps.
Some expense but nothing major, then get to it.
Won't hurt to practice with some traditional model kits.
Also, always test your painting and color mixes on something else first.
Some scrap from plastic kits works.
Consider ordering two of your first serious kit to give you some more breathing room.
Probably AmiAmi, but they make mistakes, too.
Amazon might be the most reliable in the sense that you're almost guaranteed a partial refund if the condition is worse than specified.
With conventional stores it's pretty much down to their whim.
Not him but how big of a deal is the resin dust? I don't have a garage to work in so I'd be doing it inside.
Will I die if I sand in my spraybooth and then vaccuum the surrounding area when I'm done?
I wouldn't worry too much about cancellations, I've ordered from manda hundreds of times and only gotten 4-5 cancellations.
Thanks anon! If manda still has the kit up, I may go for it after all.
When will we finally get Mai figures?
I don't think I wanted a figure this much in years.
Why would they lie, they already have my money and I wouldn't be able to refund it because "I didn't know it was used." Two separate people have told me it was new. Do you realize how stupid you sound? You could say this for literally any fucking vendor about their integrity when describing item conditions.
You said the same about Sento and I just paid 18000 anime dollars for her.
That's also a way to do it, but I don't want to treat my daughter like that.
Besides the clear bits, would this be terribly difficult?
I forgot: putty.
You always need to fill some gaps.
You generally don't do a lot of sanding, just some.
The dust is a problem chiefly for your paint.
You don't want dust on your paint.
At least not normally.
Because it could have actually been opened already and said that it was sealed. It's not like vendors have ever lied to customers and charged the wrong price before. No, never.
My guess is your the guy that lost out or something and being a bitter sulk? I see no other reason for a post this stupid. You aren't making me regret the purchase at all. It's new and I paid half what I would have on Amazon (only alternative at the time).
18650 actually. I didn't want to order it from the GSC shop.
>everything I don't like is a "meme"
love that meme
How about you stop being poor?
Chen isn't even with Bhiner and he told me it was new too. Multiple times. Both Chen are Bhiner rely on their reputations for foreign buyers cuz "scary Chinese scams." They wouldn't risk lying about such a small time purchase that could easily be proven if someone that knows Chinese looks over the listing. Same goes for Taobao and the seller, who has 99% feedback.
You can't even trust 100% positive feedback.
Most people who get fooled either
>don't know they got fooled
>are too stupid/embarrassed to do anything about it
Part of the reason they got fooled.
There also are some more or less clever exploits a seller can use.
have no interest in your shitty figure. Again, you have no fucking clue that it was actually new when they took it out of the box. Why would anyone actually open the box and take the item out? This is beyond retarded. Then you come crying here asking if it was never sealed. I don't feel stupid about my comment, only to the fact that I bothered replying.
I guess we gotta stop buying from Manda and Ami too guys. There's a chance they might lie to us or use those "clever exploits," despite their good rep. No where is safe.
This is idiotic, do you legitimately have autism? (No meme)
They take all items like this out of the box. It's their order process, I already read up on it. And if it was opened, why would they be any more compelled to extract the blisterpack than if it was new? How fucking retarded are you
Then why would you even ask the question moron? What's the point of even asking if it was really sealed if you know regardless they're going to open it? Jesus christ. How stupid can you be?
There are differences between visible user feedback, abstract reputation and hard facts.
This is rather evident to the thinking man, as well.
You could read some TOS' or look at their frigging pages, for instance.
Whether or how readily you buy from sources known to be unsafe or not known to be safe is your own problem.
Keep digging that hole. I posted here first to see if anyone had experience with Bhiner, then dug around elsewhere. I still think you're the guy that got his hunted figure stolen, only explanation for your bizarre interest and logic bending in this.
Welp, I ordered it.
Fucking Canadian dollars.
>Was the item never sealed, or would those idiots break a seal to get a shot of the blister pack?
Nice try you fucking liar. If I were that guy I'd be laughing at you for coming here to cry about the opened package. On top of that, from the looks of the replies the other guy bought it from Japan. You even fuckin replied to him.
>There are differences between visible user feedback, abstract reputation and hard facts
The most autistic thing I've read in a while. Are you the same guy from a few threads ago that got torn up for posting that unnatural and forced intellectual shit?
That really sucks, but it was worth it. The figure is one of the nicest. And it actually looks like odanon's art.
I don't care much for the DX bonus aside from cast off which seemingly should be standard.
Nope. Kinda worried about the size too, but I got 2 shirts that fit somehow, and this seems to be around the same size. Hoping for the best.
He never said he bought it. And if he did he paid double from Amazon. What's even your point with that greentext? It proves nothing. I already said it was annoying that they removed it, but that's it's part of their normal routine for confirmation photos, and that I didn't really care as long as the item itself isn't used because I'll be displaying it.
Samefag with >>135826043. If not then just plain autism because your interest in this doesn't make sense, and you're arguments are dumb as fuck.
>you have to consider the abstract hard facts. They use more or less clever exploits
>called out on faggotry
>it was bait xD
Samefag leave. Otherwise don't defend autism, have you read his other posts? That isn't bait he's just that much of a niggerfaggot.
All these pictures make my dick hard. I really want to buy my first figure soon.
What would it matter if he bought it double the price or not? That has nothing to do with what we're talking about. You just said you came here to talk about the seller except you also asked if people here could tell if the item was sealed. How were you expecting any of us to know if it was or not before they opened it and sent you those pictures? In what way could anyone have possibly proved it was sealed unless they themselves were there to see it? You can show as many pictures as you want. There was no way to prove it.
That is not the only thing you asked. Why is this so complicated for you? I even pointed exactly where you asked more than just that. Now you have absolutely nothing else to say so you're just repeating the same shit.
You latched on to me asking if they would open it, I said I found the answer to that question. You clearly can't keep up with the chronology here, now you're projecting with sweeping statements rather than substance (only took you 7 minutes to think up this reply). Complete fucking retard. Hurry up and screenshot the samefag post if you want to convince me
You have ESL right?
First of all, you didn't ask if they would open it, you asked if they opened it or if it was sealed then opened. This is what you said word for fucking word.
>Was the item never sealed, or would those idiots break a seal to get a shot of the blister pack?
Read your own god damn writing before spouting bullshit. You never even answered my question. How the hell did you expect anyone to know how to prove if it was open or not? Give a logical explanation on how anyone would have known?
I didn't ask if they opened it or not, you even green texted it verbatim--do you fucking read? I asked if they WOULD do that. As in, is this something that would be considered normal at Bhiner. I've explained this so many times to you, how many chromosomes are you missing?
You keep throwing the "how would anyone prove" blah blah, fucking read the god damn niggermonkey. This is literally the same question i just answered above. I never asked anyone to proof shit, you're just retarded and pulling that out of your ass.
>anyone here use Bhiner before?
>WOULD those idiots break a seal to get a shot
>In what way could anyone have possibly proven it was sealed
>no way to prove it
^you engaging autism and starting this "wahh how can prove" shit from the fucking ether
Why do you require such spoon feeding? Why are you such an underage nigger?
Screenshot this already: >>>135830222
You lost your hunted item because you're a fucking idiot that posted it to the thread. Get the fuck over it. I've proven every single point of yours wrong.
Because they're overly expensive and ultimately look fucking awful when you own a over a certain amount dependent on overall space.
Everyone will grow tired of that shit whether they want to admit it now or not.
Seriously, it has to be fucking ESL or else you are the most retarded person to come to these threads. Why would you ask if the item was never sealed? This is something you asked and for some odd reason are excluding this fact. Why would you ask this question at all? It makes absolutely NO SENSE.
Then you can explain this>>135829596. Are you going to tell me you didn't know about the policies before buying or are you going to now say that you knew this all along but ended up asking people here anyways? Because any answer you give is going to be absolutely retarded.
It seems like people should stop spoon feeding you because you're a fucking moron that doesn't know jack shit. You haven't proven anything other than the fact that you're a moron.
>Nah, that other guy is me.
I took this as the hunter saying "no, the guy you're referring to is me, not him"--of course this wasn't proof so I've been asking. If you're samefag, I wouldn't have wasted my time because everything becomes clear.
You lied earlier about being samefag, and have consistently said embarrassing, autistic shit like "well if *I* were that guy, I'd be laughing at you!" Your argument's entire credibility just crumbled (though it was already shit before).
And you're a whiny fucking bitch, I'm glad I stole your hunted item, faggot. That actually makes me feel even so much better about my purchase, knowing I fucked over a nigger like you. Rest easy, knowing that your whole dumb scheme to try and make me feel less confirmed in my purchase (which again wasn't working at all--it's new and the best deal I've gotten on a figure in a long time) has actually made it so much better.
It's very simple. When I asked if it was sealed, it was followed in same fucking sentence by the "would they do this" etc. The answer to the first part is contingent upon the second part of the question (their policies). You are laughable, bringing up English comprehension as you flounder with just that.
The second part of that post doesn't even deserve a response it's so stupid. But I'll humor it: the answer to your question is IN THE POST YOU REFERRED TO. I mean holy shit dude, each time you reply I think you can't possibly say something any dumber. But this is all just nonsense at this point. The issue is dead, you're a samefag retard that's crying being anon stole your grail figure :**(
Aren't you embarrassed to make such a fool of yourself?
If my shitty Japanese doesn't fail me, you bought one magazine for 610, and shipping is 2100. In which case you are retarded because you could've bought something else and still had the same shipping price. On the other hand, I sympathise because I also buy a certain magazine every month and each time I have to figure out what to combine the order with, or whether to wait until next month and buy two issues at once.
Have some Amatsu feet to lessen the pain
This might be the most resellable figure released in a while, but I think the price will drop again temporarily.
Right now you shouldn't have a hard time getting more than 200% of what you paid for it, but it will fall to below 20k again for a while before skyrocketing back up to its final after market price.
You're really trying to pretend like you didn't make a total fucking screw up. Such horse shit. When you asked if it was sealed and followed up in the same sentence with "would they do this" it meant you didn't even fucking know or else you wouldn't have fucking asked in the first place you big dumb moron.
It does, because you CLAIMED to have known of the policy which would have answered your question in the first place, yet you posted in this thread asking. How stupid is this?
I don't want your shitty figure. Have it to yourself all open and used, or wait you said it's new so yeah it's new but just opened so not new. You should post pictures of it when it arrives already used from the seller too.
Overpriced with loose joints, and brittle from what I've heard. Unless it's the only figure available and you're a die hard fan, I wouldn't recommend it. You could try reading MFC comments to see if the one you want is any good.
I really hope I can see this without having to demolish her. Even if it's just a peek.
You really have no sense of chronology. I didn't know their policy on opening items for photos when I paid for their service. Naturally I was concerned when they posted pictures of the figure out of the box, so I asked here if it was normal or if that was an indication that the box was already opened so they just took it out because why not. No answers to that. I ask Bhiner, yes it's normal, yes it was sealed, we do this for all orders. Done.
You pull so much bullshit out of the air. I never claimed to know the policy
Your response to this before was some niggotry about "why would I buy without knowing policy ahah lol got you xD"--it will be just as dumb the second time. Why would I be expected to be informed of their order processes obscurities beforehand.
I don't give a shit if the blister pack is out of the box, the figures has never been touched. They do that for a reason. If I saw the figure was clearly used, I'd have returned it.
You have problems. I hope you kill yourself because I cucked you and took your prized figure that I had never even known about until you posted it here like only an aspie would do.
>hey guys!!! what figures are you hunting??xD here's mine!
>that was stupid anon. That figure is cute, cute enough for me to start hunting.
>I'll fight u m8
>I actually steal your figure, post about it
>u cry and go full aspergers, telling me it's used and denying samefag (>>>135829790)
>calling me the cuck
Any figure with a face: no they're bad their faces are awful see that miku poster above/last thread
They can be shitty, but I've had good luck with their MGS line, especially with Raiden and
Psycho Mantis. Again, the less face you see the better honestly. My Liquid looks like shit and it's my fault for buying him but goddamnit Square why

Enjoy your semen-crusted scraps, anon.
If art is your job then you have failed and it's not really art.
The loli sculptor doesn't sculpt lolis for money.
He sculpts lolis by principle.
He sculpts loli for lolis and all of mankind.
He just happens to be good enough to get paid for it.
>Diane 1/8 scale will still be around 100cm tall
Airmail is pretty great, my last 3 packages have arrived as quickly and in some cases quicker than EMS.
How is this scale? and what is a reasonable price for it?, I mean it looks fine in some pics but cheap in others.
Does webspace even still cost money?
I remember the times when I ran my own homepage out of 100MB webspace back in... 2002?
Still, even then it was more about traffic.
What's the traffic or pageviews on the guide?
I don't expect it to be very much.
Guess it could go the wiki route?
>implying this idea didn't come up before
I'm sure it did and was shot down for some reason.
It seems like a natural choice, though.
Mainpage for the guide, articles on stores and such can grow piece by piece to enhance it.
Talk-pages help, as well.
At minimum they can contain the autismo.
>Airmail is pretty much the exact same speed as EMS.
In my experience it is as well + it's cheaper + easier to pick up when it arrives
I don't know why the guide shits on airmail. 90% of my orders go by airmail and every time I try EMS I am disappointed by the service.
In my city EMS delivers by courier, but they're overloaded and it takes several days just to deliver the package within the city. Or I can call EMS, and tell them I pick it up myself in their bumfuck nowhere sorting center. But then I might've as well used airmail and picked up the package from the post office near my home.
For me, EMS is mostly faster because customs don't fuck up as hard as they do with Airmail.
I have one Airmail in customs since 30.12. and one since 06.01.
EMS, which was shipped 2 days ago should be through customs today or tomorrow.
There's considerable variation in the efficiency of the various shipping methods depending on your location.
Customs here hate the envelope with the customs documents that is near always used with EMS.
There are no real problems with speeds or damage though, so I use whatever method is cheapest at a given time.
Thanks for the responses. The face shouldn't be a problem as I'm only interested in Spartan Locke so far.
Loose and brittle joints don't sound so great though.
Looks pretty good, but I didn't see anything on the scale or material.
It's 1/4 or 1/5 in coldcast resin or something?
Oh, I missed it somehow and looked on crunchyroll (thanks, google).
21000 nipponshekels sure is a little hefty considering the figure isn't especially complex.
Hard to gauge whether this will bin, but I doubt it.
