>Morons blaming GSC for the shipping cost like they somehow get a share of the shipping money
>Know well ahead of time that shipping will be fucking expensive
Yes, and I've never seen it jump that fast on newly released figures before so close to their release date and so soon after the release date. Then again I don't buy many super popular figures.

God damn it I just want SAL
Ah. Well I've only purchase GK recasts from E2046 so I can't speak to the Antihero recasts specifically. They do a good job in general on casting though, Have you considered Volks' kits?
For a random pillow I doubt it makes much difference. It's probably comparable to the generic pillows bootleg daki sites sell. There are much nicer pillows you can get from Amazon.co.jp, but those are a lot more expensive and of course require importing..
Why does it have to be so discreet? No one is going to look twice at a pillow. Most daki pillows/150cm are usually folded in half and is in it's packaging when it's delivered.
Can any germanfags or anons vouch for figuya? They are still taking pre orders for pic related
>tfw having to chose between getting this
>or an M&P shield 9
I bought one off amazon a couple years back and it ended up being a little short so it didn't fill the cover properly. I then ended up buying another a couple months later but that ended up being a little too puffy. I'm still searching for that perfect pillow.
>tfw Bushidonyan was the last one left and was a sample left out in the open at a vendor
>tfw there was a small Sharpie mark on his helmet after I got home
Lesson fucking learned right there
Buy the gun, then shoot yourself for even considering buying that piece of shit.
Speaking of dakis, if anyone has a tape measure and a pillow they feel is good or comfy, could you tell me the circumference?
Learn how to paint then spend ten years hunting down the GK.
I have 4 figs on order for this month, but one of them got delayed to February. Does AmiAmi automatically create a separate order, or will they all be shipped together in February along with the delayed fig?
Is this only going to be available at Amazon and Dengekiya? Went up there 3 days ago, but still don't see it on CDJapan/AmiAmi.
Or should I read the guide again?
Expect 2 month delays. I ordered pic related and she hasn't even shipped yet.

I just ordered a figure from Yellow Submarine Rakuten Shop, the figure is 15k, is 5k a ripoff on shipping or is it expected?
It feels really steep
It allows for greater detail in a production-model sculpt but is much more brittle.
I wouldn't say it's shit, but it's more brittle than PVC and for something going through international post I'd keep a bottle of araldite on hand to fix any in-transit breakage.
They do have flat rate shipping, but it differs by item type.
>PayPal won't accept my prepaid cc
Now I have no choice but to be screwed by their scummy conversion rates. Why is this allowed?
paid nearly 300 cdn in total for her to get to me. Not sure if I would have went through with it if I knew the total before ordering.
Glad I got her since it's such a damn fine piece of plastic, also I think she completely ruined my perception of scale quality. Some scales I used to want I now think look like shit comparatively.
Pretty sure I'll end up destroying my bank account by ordering Hunter Valkyrie and maybe even Fighter.
I got my package caught my CBSA for a customs review for the past month with no update. Do I contact Canada Post or try to call CBSA to see what happened to it? It's a package of 4 doujins in case you people wanted to know.
Does Manda take Visa debit? The link below says they don't, but using a search engine tells me that some people used their Visa and Mastercard debit cards just fine.
That link just says they don't take debit cards.
A visa debit is the same as a visa.
Call canada post to confirm it's with customs. It might just be lost.
What shipping method was it?
Thanks. Just made my first figure order. Not my first buyfag purchase, though.
if GSC sent me a replacement part, and their replacement part is fucked up, do you think they'll send me another? gonna send them an email either way but it would be nice to know what to expect.
>order a recast from e2046
>end up disappointed
I mean, she looks fine, but when it said "Adult Version" I expected a fully sculpted pussy, especially since I believe the pre-prototype pictures actualy had it. When the proto was done they pixellated her crotch, so I assumed something was there. As it stands, she's flatter than the original.
my (or rather my /s/anta's) miku calendar came today, looks even better that on site
She looks much better than on those product pictures (they were added later and made me kinda worried, but in the end she turned out fine). Basically the coloring is like the original (although I can't compare side-by-side, due to not having the PVC). I jumped on her when the second body was announced and the original's price rose to 27k.
Common sense tells me not to put my display case next to my baseboard heater, but aesthetics and loose floorboards everywhere else in the room are overpowering that logic.
From my understanding, there are 4 parts of E. Antihero recasts figures produced by other figure companies, Ori makes "original kits" based off of original illustrations, Gathering paints the kits, and anything unlabeled is a recast of a gk they acquired.
Someone else probably made that lewd Lamia Loveless GK and E got their hands on a copy. While Muramasa was just a recast of the figure (they even link to the antihero kit on the Gathering product page).
Never even played this shitty game but had to get this bitch.
>have display case infront of my baseboard heater
>put all my crummy amiibos and gaijin crap on the lowest level anyways
No but you can buy Monster
Does anyone know the cost of shipping a regular size Fumo (plushie)? I am not sure how much these plushies weight.
I have a Fumo shipping together with Kiss-shot and was wondering if that would help alleviate some of the box size issue.
>they don't know about the R18 version
I have my prize figures on the lowest level anyway. Have you seen any major changes in the stuff on that level? It's not very hot right next to the heaters but I don't want to risk it.
That's also a possible solution.
>Status has been at Arrived at USPS Facility since yesterday
Well anyways, she looks good, aside from the lack of genitals. I'll have to add her to my custom pussy sculpting pile. Or maybe I'll just give her a dick instead, since I have a few to recast.
Mandarakes new search completion is the strangest thing.
Hope it's back up again by the time March gets here, I don't want to get fucked on my expensive orders.
Tempting. Looks like she goes up tonight.
That seems like you'd be forcing a purchase though. I'd get over it and just buy what you want when you want.
Both, really. Nipland will eventually charge more in return but for now, their inflation is our gain.Eventually it'll bite us in the ass
>Nigga those are granny panties clear as day.
No, they're not, dumbass.
I do it, but not because I feel weird. It just seems stupid to me to pay for shipping on one thing, so I usually check to see if there's something else I want. I think all of my yahoo auctions japan purchases have been at least 100 dollars because I don't want to pay proxy fees and shipping for 2 keychains or something.
Speaking of which, what are the cheapest proxies? I've been using GoodyJapan for a few years now but they still seem sort of overpriced.
Akatsuki/Miracle Girls was the same for me. But in that case, the box and packaging not only weighed more than the items, but it was at least two times as big as it needed to be.
I wouldn't care so much if the UK didn't need to go through ParcelFarce, but it's a mess if it goes into SAL-P territory for no reason.
Got myself this fine fellow.
Question probably dumb but,
If I were to buy this hentai art book from eBay, 1999, etc to ship to UK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151804556395?
Would there issues due to its adult content or since it's from Japan?
>tfw the last figure of your waifu finally pops up on Y!AJ
I honestly don't know what I'll do after I get it, I've spent almost three years trying to get every figure of her and I've almost done it. I guess I'll just move on to rare shit I've always wanted like Kino.
Ordered this. Guess it is official, I have shit taste.
>tfw there's still no Nendos of any of the Yokai, especially Komasan
I'll have to try it out, because GoodyJapan's minimum commission is 500 and that shit is killing me. They're nice and they let me pay late, but when most of what I buy are things under 1000 yen it means even if I win an auction for 300 yen it'll end up being 800. Thanks a lot.
At least your dollar can't be tanked my assholes in the middle east dropping the price of oil.
I don't mind the plain black bases. There's a lot worse things they could do. It's perhaps not as nice as the subtle sculpted diorama bases on the GSC Sabers but I like it more than "plastic base with series name printed on it" that you see a lot. Plain black is at least perfectly neutral.
It's not just the color, but also the design of the base that is less than acceptable.
Most are just a frustum with bad texture and solid color. Looks cheap. Frisbee looking bases look much more pleasing to the eye. Especially clear ones.
should've bought some dollars beforehand, this fucking exchange rate is gonna fuck me in the ass
I only have like 60 greens in my paypal so I'll have to make do with that, I didn't get a raise in my job either so I'm gonna have to cut buyfag money for a while. I hope this shit gets better before it gets worse because my main expenses are buyfaggin gunpla and vidya so I'm pretty much fucked up.
I bought this set a while back and ended up with an extra Sayaka. Anyone here interested in her? Shes about the size of a nendorid petite.
I did it yesterday. Cant wait. 8500 yen
I'd love an H version of false mask or the third game. As long as the twins get an H scene.
It doesnt say this exactly in the guide but are paypal's exchange rates typically better than those of amiami's internal converstion rate or if I pay by debit, my bank (Wells Fargo) does the conversion itself?
Anyone know where I can buy a Dirty Pair wallscroll? All I'm turning up is Dirty Pair Flash.
Paypal has a bad exchange rate. It's like 3 less so instead of 1USD:117 Yen it's 1:114. Pretty sure Amiami charges in yen and bank converts. It's great if your bank doesn't have any fees with exchanging.
Just preordered Titty Ninjas special edition on imagine just for this beansprout butt poster. That's like $40 more dollars just because of adding the proxy service. I'm down the slope.
So I just came back from Japan a couple of days ago...any doujins I should upload that haven't been uploaded yet?
Do you fellow buy-fags frame their posters? if so, where do you purchase your frames?
Umaru delayed why? It's a re-release for fucks sake
I wouldn't be surprised if part of Link's delay was because of meddling by Nintendo. Nendos don't usually get a 3 month delay right off the bat like that, and even with all the accessories he's still not exactly an overly complicated figure.
I ordered one thing before and it arrived/was sent pretty quick. Don't know what's up with these two orders, one was from Suruga-ya and the other from an official studios website.
FJ is quick with the payment requests, too, but they won't charge me if they don't have what I ordered yet. It just doesn't seem right that the first item is taking this long to even get to them.
I guess I'll wait a few more days before asking them to harass the Suruga-ya seller about it.
Yes. You could paint over it but it might turn out looking too thick. Oxyclean can strip paint from when I've used it for GKs. You may need to soak and scrub then soak more a few times.
Suruga-ya takes a bit to check stock. I've had more than a week before, and about 5 days seems pretty average. People mistake Suru for Manda in terms of speed, but honestly they're a bit slow.
>if it's a degenerate lewd figure
Did the name Comic Kairakuten not tip you off?
>want to buyfag
>stoped buyfagging when rates went under 85 cents
>keeps going down
>my canadabucks are worth nothing
at least nipponbucks are as well.
Before shipping. The buyee fee was 500 yen making it 8500.
Comes with the book, the tapestry and holder.
So how many male figures do you guys own?
He has a better ratio than mine 1230:4 vs 385:2.
I just did a search on there and there isnt many left. I think you got the best deal you could find.
I wish I ordered two weeks ago when they were cheaper.
I feel compelled to say yes but there were best girl arguments back when it was airing and the only vocal "fans" left make shitty circlejerk threads about one girl and me when I decide to bitch about no merch. Honestly, the show was pretty great until a few episodes into the second cour when the romance drama took over completely.
I wouldnt consider it a plus either but its good because she got a rerelease thanks to that popularity.
I hope the new candytits fotm waifu will get just as much love as a nendo as Umaru did. Since I love the design of her.
I actually want to do the same but with sofmap. Does anyone know how to register for sofmap? I got my email registered but there doesnt seem to be an account settings thing going on.
I got it from twitter.
I find a lot of interesting things related to garage kits by following this guy. He retweets some neat things.
Good home 3d printers at consumer prices (i.e. under a $1000) probably aren't too far off. What is a long ways off is good looking paint or pre-colored printing. If you want to print your own stuff in the future you'll probably need to learn how to airbrush.
Seriously Mandarake, what the fuck is up with your autocomplete?
It's Alter and the renewal version came out recently. It's also a kind of unusual diorama figure. But I just picked him up because I really, really love the show more than anything about the figure itself.
I wouldn't mind learning how to paint but all 3d printed stuff I see either looks jagged or sandy.
You also can't really fix it because it's too brittle and water soluble. So you have to make a mold of it and remake the piece with a different material, which is fine but costly for figure makers, not at all useful for consumers.
>Nendoroid Link: Majora's Mask 3D Ver.
fuck, there goes my friends birthday present, dakimakura it is then
She is up for pre order. May I have some opinions on her?
Venera walked with the Egyptians. She is plenty old enough.
Just needs some hot glue to fill it in.
>Nendoroid Link: Majora's Mask 3D Ver.
Thank God, this means I can actually buy food this fortnight.
Better posing Okita Same-face Saber
A few. Only bought the frees because I wanted Nagisa and Rei, fuck Alter.
>Plamya and Venera figures
>Still no proper Natasha or Roboko scales, only PFs and GKs
I own Sorey,the Haikyuu nendos, and Itoshiki
Preordered Jiji and Ludgar, hoping for Alter to deliver on this
Whoa. This took me completely by surprise.
>more boat girls with interesting and unique accessories.
Why does this shit always get special treatment.
I think I'll pass on this one. Extremly excited for this one at first but after seeing it painted I lost interest.
>Natasha or Roboko
>You will never have an alter scale of Natasha or Roboko
There's always the prize figs.
I can't tell which side is up. Too many edges.
Get a riser or two. Elevating some of them up to scale height will probably tie them in visually.
>tfw i own those raibus and nendos
>i have those nendos in the exact same poses
What model is that?
I need this in my life.
But then your collection looks like shit
I think they can be nice if you are going for a more casual look like pic related
Trust me I had a ton of nendos at one point, but ended up selling most of them and keeping 3 of my favorites for my desk.
Maybe it's just because I moved away from joints in general, but they're really too tedious for me to bother with anymore. And plus they take up a lot more horizontal space for the price than scales do, and I'm trying to take the whole quality over quantity approach to avoid having too much of a clusterfuck.
Too crowded for my tastes, and I really wish the christmas lights meme would die already.
I keep my nendoroids on a shelf above my screen. I think it looks nice.
Symphogear scale this WF?
A Chris Figma is fine too.
I'm not a fan of the face but those ass fangs look great.
I love both of you. You two are so cute.
A Chris Cu-Poche would be fun to dress up and play with.
Always love the design in Rage of Bahamut.
She looks great. i am glad that her base is similar to Olivia's. It is nicer when they match.
Did you get her Nendo?
So worth it.
Yes you are.
Her nendo is what got me into this hobby. I saw it at a local store but it was overpriced so I read the guide.
Same here, I saw it once and had to have it. I can vouch that the hair isn't going to break unless you try to, and it's pretty malleable. It comes separate of the fig itself and has a metal post on the end of each little nub you shank into her head with a plastic ridge
