Read the Guide before asking stupid questions
painting a GK isn't as easy as you might think
Looks hand brushed to me, but even then they probably used globs of paint instead of thinning it out and paint several thin coats.
To the anon who wants to paint GKs:
Good on you. I like to hear of more people in the hobby. Recasts are fine to start out with, but if you can get originals for a good price I'd do it.
Always pin. Always prime. Always seal.
And wear safety gear. It's all fun and games until you get a piece of resin in the eye.

Found this in a local shop for 1200MXN (66USD?). It seems to be new since it's still in its box. The thing is that it would be worth one and a half week of food (universityfag).
Should I go for it?
These questions are dumb as fuck.
Only you know the answer to that.
Do you like the bitch?
Do you want the bitch?
You got money for the bitch?
You willing to put up with what everyone thinks of the bitch?
You got space for the bitch?
If yes, cop dat bitch
So do I. When you sand there is a lot of dust and glasses won't prevent that getting in your eyes. You're sanding dangerous stuff so a mask and safety googles are pretty much a must.
Depending on paints and how you are painting you need to get a vapor mask. Disposable gloves are good for working with putty/painting. Get some of those glad ware tubs and make sure they are kept someplace to designate them for hobby use only. Oxiclean is great for removing primer, and I've heard it's good for removing mold release residue.
Any good bookshelves under $200 that will hold about 3-400 volumes of manga? I've been either putting them in boxes or stacking them on top of each other on my desk, the spines are starting to get fucked. How do you guys store manga?
If you line them up correctly not that hard. You may need to do a thin coat of putty, depending if some chipping happened, but paint should cover the break just fine.
If you don't line them up flush, then you have to putty and sand a bit.
Just go slow. Make sure you get a glue that sets quickly enough but also would allow a bit of time to do adjusting.
If the fingers are small or tight fitting use needle nose tweezers and a magnifying glass or light.
Can you ask for cheaper shipping at amiami? paying half the price of a figure for shipping is not something I am keen on doing. What are the chances and how much would shipping be via SAL?
Is it a figure you have wanted for a while, or is it an impulse buy?
Have you done you research? Do you know what the retail price for this figure was? Do you know how much it sells for now? What have other people paid for this figure?
Finally, with all of this in mind and accounting for your personal situation, are you willing to pay that much for this particular figure?
These are the questions you must ask yourself when making these decisions. Now fuck off because we're not going to spoonfeed you like this again.
Maybe you live in some backwater area or you only eat 1 meal a day, but if I spent $8 a day on food I would be eating ghetto store brand cereal for breakfast, mcdonalds single dollar menu item for lunch and top ramen for dinner.
and I would probably be washing my dishes with water from my toilet tank.
i eat pretty healthily, i don't know what you're talking about
i mean snack ramen is nice but that's not what i survive on
you're just shitty at cooking and budgeting
wut, why quote me
you should learn to cook
onions, carrots, cabbage, and chicken are pretty cheap
your main source of carbs can be rice, corn tortillas, potatoes, and whatever you want since they're usually cheap, too
>let me just buy the ORGANIC GLUTEN-FREE PALEO WHATEVER THE FUCK MARKETING SCHEME chicken from a supermarket
if that's what you mean
"decent" chicken is not that expensive, at least not in socal
>Anette and Liliana re-release with added bunny ears.
Holy fuck, I think it's time to finally get my first lewd statue. I've wanted Anette for a long time now.
Why is he so expensive when he comes with so little accessories/face plates?
It's tough. Normally I prefer black fishnets, but with the dark skin and the perfectly white hair, the white fishnets might be better here. I might take a few weeks to decide before preordering. Can't imagine they'll sell out.
tfw I've weaned off buying figyas and used my fig money for card games instead. Got more mileage and satisfaction out of it
Because GSC has been going full jew lately with the yen tanking. They know he'll sell whatever they charge.
Just look at the new Witches compared to him. Perrine comes with three faces, the striker unit, a gun, a sword, an effect piece, a tail, and an extra bangs piece and she's only 300 yen more.
The Love Live nendos are about 1k less and come with the same amount of extra stuff.
Romane lettuce hearts, rice, beans, chicken, onions, and potatoes
Why do you think a lot if Asian people live off curry? It's cheap as fuck to make.
Get a slow cooker and cook beans all day and you will have enough for a few days. Lettuce can give you salads and shit
You can make delicious food with a few spices and those ingredients
people pretend like everything won't give you cancer. even just breathing can give you cancer. may as well enjoy life. being vegan doesn't dramatically reduce your risk of any type of cancer.
I want him as well but I'm hoping he'll bin from GSC overstocking or just from people dropping pre-orders. He should be the price as the LL nendos since he comes with the same amount of accessories. It's ridiculous.
I'm hoping the Genos nendo won't get jewed either since that's the one I'm patiently waiting on.
The thing about figures is they're meant to be displayed and look pretty.
But the average person would never have enough space to properly display these things.
>expecting self entitled NEETS living with their parents to prepare anything other than hotpockets
You would need to ask /ck/ to invent a cooking 101 for newfags and link it there. You'd also have to spoonfeed like crazy because faggots can't tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy, whether springing for organic is worth it, and cross contamination prevention.
Pink is cute, black is sexy.
Personally, this might be what I need to start a hentai/doujin collection. Assuming I can ever hunt down a Newmanoid Cam, that is.
Did Kiss Shot get delayed again?
How far can we go, I wonder?
>preorder discount already 13%
Too much jew for me. Everything either bargains bins really quick or goes straight to retail price within days.
Universityfag here. Also found this one. Anyone has any reviews of it? Should I go for this one or the Kuroneko one?
Thanks man. [Spoiler]My main motivation for doing this is making it my first SoF[/Spoiler]
i need to watch more anime
into the trash it doodely googly goes
that porkchop is too fat
skinny pork looks better
>tfw will never have a complete collection of figs of every Monogatari girl
>tfw no Sodachi or Gaen or Yotsugi
would this be a good figure to start off with? i think it might have too many pieces but i'm kinda afraid they'll discontinue it since its been out for over a year
Same, there's something about Monogatari figures that doesn't catch my eye like in the anime.
The only Monogatari figures I like are this and the Hachikuji one that's similar, but I can't find them anywhere.
This Jeanne has several pieces. One of the good things about that is there is less masking to do, the bad more to paint. If you're worried she'll get discontinued you could just go a head and buy it, then practice on other kits until you feel comfortable tackling her.
A good kit would be something like G-Port's Sailor Senshi kits. In a few pieces, simple colors, and not too complicated.
It say's it's released, but GSC is only at "Packing Slip Created" and I still haven't gotten any emails? Should I be worried?
I never said that, just deal with their shit. THey are fine if you are ordering exclusives or multiple figures, to order a single non limited nendo from them is retarded though.
Everytime I see this pic I always imagine this chick smells really bad. It's some combination of stale Cheetos, BO, 3 year unwashed ass, and a heavy dousing of an obnoxious celebrity perfume and baby powder.
Check out the stores that sell used goods. The guide posted in the OP has a list of them. She should pop up on occasion and there might be some available right now.
>tfw like Monogatari
>tfw have no interest on buying the figure because they'd look silly on my display
I'd probably buy Kagenui fig if they ever make one, but that's it.
>mouth is actually closed
What about this Pochaco?
She's a qt and her thigh gap is lewd. I should do less window-shopping, it's killing me inside.
All the Raibus are equally best.
But Nico is the most best
I have the cheap trading figure, I feel like it's the best proportioned renge.
CDs get out of control really quickly. It isn't hard to add just 10 more to your cart. Have you had this problem?
My 1/4 Miku just came in today... No fucking idea where she's going to fit though.
Excuse potato pic.
I need to learn how to use a camera.
I use mine for my Assault Lilys, but yet. They work with shinkis, too. And I'm huge into guns so I like collecting them for their own sake, too.
Excuse the potato pic, it's the only one I have handy and it's too late to take another.
$1 = 117¥ and will only drop from here.
Projections are that if it doesn't stablize at this price soon, it will only get stronger, which is awful for us.
I don't know how many of you buyfagged in 2012 and prior, but it was suffering and I really hope it doesn't go back there again.
I've been so spoiled the last few years.
You probably just need a light source such as a desk lamp and to focus on the subject. Once you have both sufficient light and focal point it just comes down to taking enough photos for at least one to turn out okay. Enough.
Photographing small things indoors is hard at first.
Being shit at something is the first step towards being sort of okay at something.
It's not all gloom and doom. Part of the reason why GSC has gone full jew with figmas is because of how garbage the yen is right now. A lot of stuff will sort of even out or at least stop getting worse.
I'm afraid they've tasted what their exclusives can do, and that even with a strong yen they will continue to do so.
Thankfully I only order mauve one or two things from them a year, but I feel for those who order from them often.
It's bit that I dint have the money, it's that I've been spoiled by the 8+scales I can get every year as opposed to the 3 or 4 I could get with what I put aside before.
Pray the nip gods decide to let it tank again
It sucks, but it happens. I remember those years though and I'm not looking forward to it again.
Best thing to do is pick some figures you absolutely can not do without PO, cut back on goods (if you collect them), and use stores that allow cancellations for things you want but would be okay doing without.
Am I just imagining things or is her right eye (left in the picture) more slanted and a bit lower seated than the left? The longer I look at it the more she looks a bit retarded.
If so, how likely is it for it to be fixed on the production model? I might have to cancel.
It's been a long time coming. They couldn't keep their ¥ down forever or else they would lose out on their foreign holdings. Though I wish they could, our only hope now is that they see the revenue from trade as more important.
The best thing to do is just don't preorder or buy any figures and wait until the yen becomes weak again. Might take ten years but whatever.
I refrained from buying the monogataris and I bought them recently. Even with obscene aftermarket prices they're still cheaper than they were before 2013.
I basically save up for 2 or 4 months and then spend all my cash at once for maximum figurines and trinkets. Its better doing that for me basically.
Also Owner of the Wiki here, I'm about 50% done with moving the google doc to the wiki. I wanted to ask would people rather have it in once page or broken up into different articles so you can just click and read which part you want.
Understood /a/non. It will have a very good navigation system. Last thing needed is people being annoyed by it so I will do this.
How is this modding?, this is nothing but the work of an idiot.
Not that I know of. Is it your first ever order, or a super expensive figure?
AmiAmi generally gives leeway if you do business with them often, but in truth it really depends on the CS Representative you get. Though I'm not sure, and maybe some Anon's from the Madokami era can answer, it's possible they get really anal if there's a mass cancellation of a certain figure due to shipping.
Well, it really depends on the modding. Most figures like this I'd suspect the person intends to make a cast off feature with detailed breasts. It's possible he doesn't care about the character and intends to mod her to be an OC or add a different characters face.
It is very sloppy though, but if they have the skill to fix it, then that shit probably doesn't matter.
I am pretty sure this was either curiosity or they were trying to pirate or at least figure out how it's sculpted. Either ways whoever did it chances are has another one or knows how to fix it.
It's the second order I've placed. The first one is for an in-stock Nendoroid that hasn't shipped yet. I'm certain I want the nendo though, so maybe it would be prudent to wait until it has shipped before I ask them to cancel the other order?
This morning I woke up with the intention of canceling it too because cash is tight with my country's econmy.
Right now the USD is at 18 mxn and 100 yen being 15 mxn. Ideally the usd would be between the 10-12 mxn range and 100 yen would be 10 around mxn.But I got the invoice in the mail, I looked at the figure once more and I told to myself that I'd rather regret getting it than regret not getting it.
While I am not particularly attached to any girl in Monogatari I am attached to the series as a whole and this will be the first and possibly only money I ever spend on it. It's weird with so many good girls in the series, my favorite characters are by far Koyomi and Kaiki.
I already did, I might lack resolve, but my dick sure has more than enough for both of us. I trust in my dick, he has rarely ever failed me. I owe him my life, he's a great pal.
Don't you trust in your dick?
welp at the end I ordered this beauty for 12K (Dark elf), so I will be cancelling kiss shot.
Looks like a quick tit mod. I dunno why but a feel like the proper way to do this would be sculpt the breast and let it cure, then the areola and sculpt/blend it in and let it cure, then it nipple.
Native, Tony (his girls are soft), interesting cloth clothes, fully castoffable.
Then they decided to go full retard and just have those seams.
Sorry anon, didn't mean to ignore you.
Here. Again sorry for potato.
I have no more shelf space, or else I would put them somewhere else.
Badly done hair really ticks me off, and I avoided buying Alter's Yuuki Yuuna scale and Phat's [email protected] Yukiho scale specifically because the sculptors made no effort whatsoever to camouflage the hair seams. And then there's this PriPara Lala scale from GSC, which I skipped out on due to having literally less paint detail on the back of its head than my $8 prize figure.
I was so mad when the Kotobukiya Sento came out because I like the face on that one better.
Ok so how about I create the One Page style on obviously one page and have on the Main Page a option choice for you guys to pick which version you'd like to use?
Basically each person can get what they want out of the wiki so no one is left out?
It'll add more time to do but I'll add it to the wiki.
I know. But it's not a big priority for me at the moment. I'd rather get that glass shelf from IKEA and use that instead.
I had no idea of that, looks good but different, still to me the final ver looks way better it's one of the finest scales I ever had, I sold her a year ago for a good price but regretted the decision later.
I found a painted ver of the first prototype.
Can't wait for 1/1 figure of her
I have a huge urge to do some boarderline impulse buying but I should just wait for my January order. I fell like I'm going insane though all my December shit got delayed and I went a whole month without getting anything
She looks like a blue skinned bimbo there. Final version looks better and accurate to the illustration.
Also, Human Lineage 2 figure when?
I have 1,000 on me right now, guys tell me what to buy.
Welp looks like I'm going to have to post it again.
Reminder that if you have merchandise of any of the following:

>I'm going to post the same shitpost over and over for replies/attention
Yet another success for him, bravo.
Got my first fig.
Slippery slope, here I come.
In 2008 the yen was about 80 to a dollar
Those were dark times.
But figmas were 2,500-3,500 yen with a shit ton of accessories.
What did you expect from a PriPara figure? All the characters have too much detail on them which leads to the anime have very bad art quality and so there's not much from where to pick details like the hair. Don't get me wrong, I own the kashikoma ver. and its one of my favorite figures.
>before yen tanks
Little late on that one pal
On the brightside maybe these threads will get better now that the kiddos won't be able to get every new meme figure every month and post about it here
Anyone know why the most recent odanon manga is so expensive?
Paid, waiting on shipping now. Has anyone's shipped yet?
Tell me your hopes and dreams for Wonfes /a/.
I'd like to see something of these two.

GSC to deliver on those Magic Knight Rayearth figmas
A good Saitama scale
I just got the new Love Live variety set and got a Rin sign. Very happy considering I only bought one pack.
I really want to start a shrine of her, but I'd rather not get her not-so-good prize figures. All I have of her is Stronger's 5th Anniversary figure.
There's a lot of stationary and miscellaneous merch though, so maybe a small shrine would be nice.
>ordered a set of fairies from a mfc user

I just want a scale of this meme girl
Everytime I hear about places that need to go to customs to pick shit up it makes me glad my stuff gets delivered to my door and if there are any custom fees, I can pay it with any method i want at the door.
Also i work nights so i never miss packages thanks to my dog flipping his shit anytime the canada post truck pulls up on my driveway
I usually just get them delivered too, but my last package got captured, so I had to pick it up yesterday.
I am hoping, this was the only case I had to do this. (It probably won't be)
>Everytime I hear about places that need to go to customs to pick shit up it makes me glad my stuff gets delivered to my door
It's the exact opposite for me. I'd rather get up one hour earlier and drive to the next customs office to open the package myself. Fact is: customs (or rather the postal service) already damaged two of my items while cutting it open with a box cutter.
I've never actually had them open a package before and i import a lot of stuff, not just figures. they just slap a tag on the side of the box saying i gotta pay $10 handling free, duty fees(seems to be 6.5% for figures) and 12% sales tax that we have where i live on non-food items (and some other things).
Honestly it's only the handling fees and duty i get mad at since duty is meant to be a incentive to buy domestically, which is impossible for shit like this and $10 is far too much just to scan a package and slap a sticker on it if it gets flagged. I have no problems paying sales taxes though because my family has benefited a lot from government run shit, probably a lot more then we payed into, woo genetic illnesses.

>weeb ninja will never get a figure
I feel like if I try to import the Shomin Sample manga I will go to jail.
You could always load up your paypal account with yen, even though you'd get a shitty rate like 114 to one usd, if you think the yens going to continue to slide to like 100, then it's probably worth while.
>Tfw there is a chance I might have to open box at post office
>Mfw anti bomb squad sees package full of half-naked high school girls/maids cover books and sexy loli figurines
It is not a crime here or anything, but still.
More Bertille-sama's figures. If Q-Six makes it happen like how they did to the series of Celia's figures I am much more happier.
And damn, A+'s Bertille figure is quite shitty.
Also, make the Selvaria Bles in Bikini figure come true, Vertex, you have promised it.
I'm fucking sick of her and Celia. Where the fuck is my Ayako and Noel figure?
More Saber, less non-Saber. I hope this is announced or Saber Alter (Lancer).
not that i'll ever hold her in my hands, but at least i'd like to see her with a nice coat of paint.
Anatomically correct muv-luv figures.
Is this the right way to put the 2you4 address on Surugaya?
I got the shipping notification around 6 hours ago from AmiAmi. Tracking number works and shows it hasnt completed the first leg yet.
I fooled around and put the number into the USPS website and its a reused number and shows a package from two years ago that was delivered to someone else.
