Read the Guide before asking questions
Someone has been making threads early constantly for the past while, right around the time we switched to buyfags.moe even though the website is still unfinished and buyfag.moe works again.
Please put her up aniplex USA. I will suck your dick.
Does anyone else include cheap, interesting trinkets when ordering? As a Ritsu and Initial D fan, this was quite the find for 400 yen.
I do, usually I buy some pins or a tiny figurine. It adds to the purchase greatly. Whenever I buy my girls I like to have tiny trinkets too, makes it feel like christmas when I check the mail
There's also this coaster and cup to add to the shrine.
It looks like a skirt
for your penis
What's the most expensive figure in your collection boys?
Benten and that Maxfac Sorceress.
Does anyone think pic related will be more expensive/harder to find on the aftermarket?
Do I put them all on one keychain at once, I'll never know
Take your rude elsewhere or I'll beat you up
I'm having no luck catching preorders I want.
Seems everytime I take a break from getting figures/statues for other interest shit that I would've liked gets released.
>Posts the normalfaggiest 3D reaction images
>Calls other people Reddit
>you can kill yourself into forever
Why is /a/ so obsessed with killing yourself and suicide lately?
It's possible. Kaori may or may not get more figures apart from the GSC one and the two Aniplex figures. It really depends on what is shown at WonFes, but she might release before then.
It was non existent in 2003-2010. Now /a/ is filled with edgy kids from gaia who desperately try to be rude. That's their idea of fitting in I guess.
A lot of good old pals like Christmasfag are leaving because of that neo-/a/.
Also it's pretty amusing to see how cancerous this "buyfag" (what a shit name) general is. Not so surprising though. After all it's just a /jp/ ripoff except /fig/ threads on /jp/ were comfy way before that "buyfag" nonsense started on /a/.
Too bad we were so kind to spoon feed on /a/ back then and introduced the hobby to retards who populate those threads now and shit everything around.
Have you never seen chainmail? That's how all the cool kids wear it
Not my photo
Of course we share the same demographics. I don't know why you're saying that as if it's surprising or as if it means anything.
Either way, these threads are pretty crappy but are the lesser of 3 evils, I'd rather be here than mfc or reddit.
Who else is waiting for the hamster rerelease notification?
Just in time to slut it up with her older sis.
Fuck that hamster, who's waiting for this cute animal's notification instead?
I like Isabelle in the game but something about the Nendo looks off. Also the winter uniform one has the superior face plate.
I prefer both Amakuni boatsluts together. GSC's Shimabutt is better as standalone.
She will eventually, but I thought they'd use her birthday to reveal it.
Canadian anon from last time posting again. Finally got her
>tfw got hit by customs
Was she worth it? Fuck yes.
I'm going to miss you. Your progress reports were one of the few things I looked forward to in this thread. Where do we go from here?
>two orders placed with card still waiting to ship
>paypal order done the day after shipped already
I'm not into kanColle but I have the figures and lots of money.
Aww, thank you anon. Didn't know anyone looked forward to my posts.
>find 12 vol manga set for $15
>EMS shipping should be $70ish
>works out cheaper than CDJapan and Amazon
>they only take card and won't say their shipping cost until after you agree to pay
I hate this uncertainty. They could turn around and charge me something absurd out of nowhere, and what would have been the point of price checking then.
Yeah they don't seem to hit things that are under 10k JPY (before shipping) , even if the total package is a lot more. I've gotten multiple packages without fees that were over 20k JPY total, but nothing inside alone was over 10k, but I've received single figures that cost around 11k and they ding them every time.
They really need to put exceptions in for collectable things that aren't available domestically. I don't even mind paying the sales tax, but the whole point of duty fees are to give incentive to buy domestically, which is impossible for stuff like this.
Guy that bought something from tamarket the other day, it took eight days to get here and didn't arrive in the best condition. However, I ended up paying almost half the price the item is on YA, so bad packaging is fine when the item is fine.
So it's slow, gave no tracking and overpriced but has some rare items at decent prices. Surprised that something Australian wasn't garbage.
Payment request just came in for pic related 320 kiwi dollars. Fuck my ass Amiami
I found them through Rakuten, not sure if they have an independent site: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/zenkanmanga/
Some series are down to like 200yen a volume, others are pretty average.
Kiss-Shot just has to get in stock before it ships for me.
Any buyfags have this? I've been buying a lot of hoihoi models lately and kind of want this to go with them. I can find it for, like, 5k when it retailed for 11k though so I'm nervous about quality. Or is it just so cheap because no one gives a fuck about hoihoi?
Those look super cute. If you don't buy them I probably will.
I was just bluffing. You win this round.
The seasons are reversed when you are south of the equator.
Does anyone own her and can offer feedback?
America's very big, very isolationist, and very proud.
It would cost quite a bit to switch over industry and without big business support, it's impossible to switch in any meaningful way. Most Americans are also too proud of America to switch over to 'the European' way, for better or worse. And we're isolated so the vast, vast majority of people never notice a difference at all.
Which K-On figures should I get as a set? The Alter set looks really nice, if a little orthodox.
Seeing this picture alongside Shimakaze, and with a good comparison next to the Amakuni one. The GSC figure looks a lot better. Glad I sold my Amakuni version. Smirking girls look good together. They look so happy.
Let me get this straight
If I want to forward something from Suruga-ya I just put my name and credit card like normal but use BiJ adress and phone and then buy the forwarding service from BiJ?
I like some things about cu-poche, like the use of magnets, but nendos are ultimately better because of the cleaner jointless look and because there are so many now that you have more choices when it comes to unique parts changing and what not.
They're both cute, nendoroids are more customizable and have more swappable parts. Problem with that is, you're going to get so stressed out trying to swap some of them, they never stand right, parts fall out, some parts are a bitch to detach or attach, they just end up being a lot of effort. You end up posing them like once and leaving them that way for months.
That isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for Cu-poche, it really just depends on what you wanna do with them.
Nendos become addicting and then you realize they're sort of a waste for the reasons listed above. They're cute, but don't fall into the trap.
Cu-poche can wear clothes and are better at posing. Their magnets are strong enough to hold them upside down.
But Nendoroids have better licenses by far. Call me when Cu-Poche makes anything worth buying. Aside from the Dark Magician girl, they have a bunch of generic school girls, Madoka Magica (about five years after having that license mattered to anyone) and the love it or hate it KanColle
>Problem with that is, you're going to get so stressed out trying to swap some of them, they never stand right, parts fall out, some parts are a bitch to detach or attach, they just end up being a lot of effort. You end up posing them like once and leaving them that way for months.
I feel that way about figmas too.
More than half the time their peg doesn't go all the way through their back so you have a figure that detaches from their base too easily, and with new figmas always only hand will refuse to detach from their new wrist ball joint so you have to leave it like that for a month or so till it softens up.
That looks awful, a nendo with clothes like that on wouldn't look any worse.
That's cu-poches biggest issue at the moment, it's new and doesn't have many licenses, no one needs jointed nendos of kirno or madoka.
I really love those magnet bases though, I wish they were more common in figures.
>they just end up being a lot of effort. You end up posing them like once and leaving them that way for months.
That's kind of why I like Nendos. They're great for indecisive people like me. I feel bad if I don't play with my Cu-poches or clothe them or something, but I'm fine treating Nendoroids like cheap statues. Especially with series like Monster Hunter where there's so much stuff that it's hard to keep statues in scale with each other.
The silly thing is that Cu-poche was an opportunity to fill the hole for all the characters that didn't get nendos, but instead they made some shit for characters that everyone who cares already got the nendo for.
I'm kind of bum'd out about starting to collect since I know there is no way of aquiring some of the figurine sets that I wish to set out to collect a long while ago, like the to-love ru thing and raita ones. Knowing that I can not get into it without those.
Yes but they take up to a few weeks sometimes.

>That's cu-poches biggest issue at the moment, it's new and doesn't have many license
You have a point there, but nendos in the begining were on the same boat with only a fiew licences, but that changes as time passed
Damn my weakness for skin tight pilot suits. At least she's strangely cheap for a 1/7.
That's not true, Nendos have many years of no competitors (Nanorich doesn't count) until two years ago when Koto put out the Cu-poche line
I agree that Koto needs more licenses for characters in this line
Cu-poches are a new line and need more time to bloom in full force as nendoroids
Both lines are good and cute, that why I like/collect both
Monster Hunter, Queen's Blade, and Touken Ranbu licenses alone contain not a single idol or school girl and contain more nendos than Cu-poche's entire line. They have a ton of everything. Obviously they have a ton of schoolgirls - the most common character in anime. Difference is that they have a ton of other shit to go with them.
Just bought my first nendoroid. Should be here within the week. I'm so excited
A ma TSU ka
ZE. More Amatsukaze's someday
The point isn't that you don't buy them. It's that you feel the need to comment on people that do which makes you a shitty brat. But keep on shitposting if that's what you feel entitled to.
It was my first figure, and I've yet to buy one more expensive. Though some have come close.
Is /a/'s obsession with the latest things ubiquitous? I'm just trying to find figures of anime I've been obsessed with for years.
The fact that there's someone else who likes HoiHoi on here is almost unbelievable. The irony of the merchandise is that the manga is a satire of customizable merchandise and consumerism, which the merchandise exemplifies strongly.
I've tried that on three separate occasions. It's hidden behind so many other menu options, it was impossible to find. I even followed the exact directions other anon's posted, but it didn't line up with what I was seeing on the screen. I just switched to using a credit card.
Old figures generally look like shit in comparison to what you can get now
The newest things have the biggest amount of people wanting to buy them, so it's only natural for most of the talk to be about things not out yet
Distance and Temperature, I will agree are retarded and should have been changed decades ago, but I will defend Month>Day>Year to the death.
You get the most important context out first, then you narrow it down, then you tack on the year, which is usually not even necessary.
Think about how you would say a date out loud. 90% of people will say "April third." rather than "The third of April."
> I'm not the one who started the comparison
what a retarded thing to say on an anonymous image bored created by a lonely japanese man who wont even admit to the atrocities of Naan Ken
Item Size/Weight : 26.2 x 25.1 x 23.2 cm / 1001g
Old figures tend to look way worse than it is now and I don't see any point in bragging about muh superior taste here.
Also, it's not like my favorite anime got any figure anyway.
I don't her price is going to fall beyond 9K
Fluffiest gochiusa pre-ordered. Now I can rest with good feels.
Is this going to be the new Android 18 Coliseum 6 figurine or is it the other one?
I'm a little confused that there are preorders for both.
It says that only sales in Japan will get the code, so if I but it from amiami will it have the code? What is this code for anyways? I just want it because I don't like missing out on free things that come with figures.
It will come with the code, but the code only works on the Japanese version. Unlike KanColle, there's an American version of this game, too. And the code is something for the game she's from, though I'm not sure what.
is kaitendo any good? This and the red version look pretty intriguing.
Has anybody had issues with Wing's Purple Heart figure? Mine came with the right arm kind of bent out of place, so it couldn't go together properly. The replacement they sent me has the same issue, but is slightly less severe.
Is there a way I can fix it myself, or do I have to contact GSC again and hope they don't think I'm just a ham-handed retard or something?
ya meme'd me
anons beating the system yet again.
