I like the one on the right, though she'd look more at home in KanColle, honestly. The one on the left just looks like a Black Rock Shooter reject.
As for other Cu-Poches, I'd love if they did some of the Strike Witches not from the 501st. Especially with the new season focusing on a new squad, I'm hoping for something. I really want to get into Cu-Poche more than Nendoroids, but they somehow don't have a single license I want yet.
This along Ultimate Madoka and Akuma Homura
[spoiler]Unless they're waiting for the s2 to give them more accesories[/spoiler]
>I really want to get into Cu-Poche more than Nendoroids, but they somehow don't have a single license I want yet.
Get the normies, then.
They punch my pancreas just as hard as the licensed girls.
Poche Nagisa would probably give me a heart attack. Akuma Homu and Godoka would be awesome to complete as well.
Also want Hidamari Sketch.
K-On! because I can't justify the price of Nendoroids for zero articulation, but those adorable chibi fuckers are calling to me, man.
Who is she? Why is she so smug? Where can I buy her? Why do I feel the need to punch her face in?
I got the scale fig, she looks really great but yeah it would be awesome to have poseable versions of best idol. Might get another scale figs tho.
I'm sure that we will gat a Mokoto poche soon, afterall they have come out with 6 of the 13 girls of IM@S already, I think Makoto and Iori will come next
And there is the Makoto Dollfie if you are in to dolls, I think that she looks gorgeous although really expensive for my wallet
She looks cute but i'm not in dolls.
>mfw i saw her price
>These are all customs.
Yeah, some really good custom IMO
Recently acquired a second Poche Moemura along with a swimsuit body and gym outfit. No boxes but all of them have their accessories.
Cool thing is the price I got them for. All in all without postage it only cost me $20.
Looking forward to getting them.
The Teyandee girls. They're SD to begin with, so they'd transition nicely. Bonus points if they do variants of Pururun and Omitsu in their idol singer outfits.
Video review for the Dark Magician Girl 1.5
I recently got my DMG, she's my first Cu-Poche and I absolutely love her. The paint apps aren't perfect but the scale is larger than expected which is nice and the accessories are fantastic. I will be getting more Cu-Poche in future for sure.
Anyone else hoping they do an Orange Rouge style line and give us some boys?
Guys you remember that Makoto Dollfie posted earlier that was originally 500 bucks.
Well it's currently on Amazon for 3000$
>finally master can have her servant.
She is great, I wish that Koto would have made a Mori Summer Cu-poche or Kumi-san, but it didn't happen
Anyway, check this review of her and in there is a papercraft template for her Magic Book
I just bought my first Cu-Poche and all plastic bags were open. Is this normal? I'm, asking, because /toy/s from other brands (figmas and figures in general) comes with plastic bags closed.
Oh yeah. As you can see there is nothing saying it is second hand:
I had been watching some Cu-Poche unboxing and all of them is like mine. So, should I conclude this is normal or everyone is getting second hand products?
One of these unboxing:
>I had been watching some Cu-Poche unboxing and all of them is like mine. So, should I conclude this is normal or everyone is getting second hand products?
The open plastic bags are normal, all my brand new poches come like that when they are released
Pics for the Cu-poche Hibiki from the DesDiv6 and the Cu-poche Friends original character Anne
You brought peace to my heart. If we were at /b/, surely I would pay with nudes. May this smile warm you heart.
The spinning effects are a giant pain in the ass to position holy shit.
Didn't swap any faces for pics yet, I like this one best anyway. Looks so good with Rikka though, love these two.
You got some really nice shots! I have these two as well and I didn't even try to fuck with the spinning hair.
I've been meaning to post this pic since I got little vials of nail art glitter. Moemura is my favorite
Anon from >>5318866
Moemura arrived along with the swimsuit and sports bodies. Was slightly scared they'd be some type of fakes yet to be discovered but they're all legit.
Not bad for just $20 if I do say.
Cheers! You've saved yourself a whole bunch of annoyance by avoiding the spinning parts, friggin stupid things.
I wish there were more Poches from series I'm into. They're good fun.

Spring Coat (Kotobukiya Exclusive)
Always check MFC to see if that figure have bootlegs reported
Kirino seems that doesn't have one
On the other hand in these almost 3 years that the poche line have existed I have never heard about a poche bootleg
Anyway, if you stick with legitimate stores like Amico, HLJ, HS, Timelords, BBTS ot TOM your are safe
I got neither a nendoroid nor a cu-poche but planning to maybe get one of each, would anyone happen to know how exchangeable the heads are?
Apparently the face-plates can be switched but how about the whole head? Do nendoroid heads fit into cu-poche bodies?
Just wondering if pic related would work at all.
I would like to know as well, but my Anne hasn't been sent out yet. I have a Nendo Link hanging out, so I may try a swap if Anne comes in the next couple of weeks.
I'm pretty sure it's been tried, though. The necks are a little different looking, so I'm unsure about the compatability.
Someone have some clothing patterns that could be used for Cu-poches?
I was going to make some once Anne is released and arrives.
Has anyone tried sylvanian family clothes on cupoches yet?
I imagine with some alteration you could use fan patterns for outfits for those for the cupoches too.
I thought about this too, but I haven't got any of the Sylvanian Families clothes to try them on cu-poches, on the same page I believe that their furniture would work with cu-poches and nendos, but I haven't got any to confirm this
I guess the guy/girl who make that outfit just glue them and call it a day
>Which one should I get? Long ver, short ver or both?
> I believe that their furniture would work with cu-poches and nendos, but I haven't got any to confirm this
The furniture will work great I imagine as I have a fair amount of Sylvanian Family stuff and Nendos and they work wonderfully together.
As cu-poche are a similar size with more articulation I imagine they will work even better with using the chairs and such. I'm yet to have any cu-poche to test with though.
Hurry up, Anne!
Nendo heads fit very well (in my experience) on cu-poche neck joints.
Lots of the faces will switch out. Some are a tad too small or too big.
Hakase's face is a tad too wide for Sayaka's hair...
(sorry for the dark potato photo!)
Seems like bootlegers have tried to produce some bootleg figures to look like the Cu-poche Hestia, but they look really shitty desu
That's the first bootleg of a cupoche that I see. Indeed it looks shitty.
>How "fragile" do these feel compared to Nendos?
>I've had some Chibi-Arts and they had quality on par with Chinese bootlegs.
>Comparing poches with shit crap like 'shitty-arts'
M8, at least buy buy one poche before talk out of your ass
Cu-poche Fluffy Bestgirl
What worries me is that it seems she will come with only one face, maybe because she will be a limited edition as it's seen in he OP pic
I dunno why
Aw yeah, finally got my payment request for Anne and the other shit I bought with her.
They weren't even comparing 'poches with either of those. They were asking about the quality of 'poches while putting down C-Arts.
>what is reading comprehension
>Aw yeah, finally got my payment request for Anne and the other shit I bought with her.
Me too, anon, today I received my payment invoice for Anne and the Cat Parka sets along the other stuff in my order (I have a week to send my payment, I'll wait 4 or 5 days to pay, just to try to avoid the end of the year mail-hell that most packages will suffer during the holidays)
My order were waiting for the release of the Parka sets, and they are finally in stock
Who else will get them for their Cu-poches?
Also a custom Yukiho tread in futaba
I'm waiting on a book mark to get in-stock *sigh*
I got all three and waiting on Zen Market to send my payment request on the pink ver.
I'll also probably wait for awhile to pay to avoid the holiday clusterfuck.
A tad off topic I paid for an order on the 20th and it arrived yesterday via DHL damn.
While my EMS I paid for the 18th is still in Chicago...[nope/]
>I got all three and waiting on Zen Market to send my payment request on the pink ver.
Nice, The pink ver. is cute, but I liked more the white and black vers, so I got those
Also Happy Christmas Cu-poche General!!
Yukari will be a Wonfes exclusive? Damn!!
Are you from England? Since those plush cats are from the British Museum Shop.
>Are you from England? Since those plush cats are from the British Museum Shop.
Sorry, anon, I took that pic from the Kotobukiya's twitter, but is good to knoe the sauce for that Cat push, it is really cute, I would buy and agree with anon >>5366011
Really cute push, I guess one can't get one if you aren't in England
>Koume's face is blocked
Even thought I know this is a custom it brings me great distress
Inklings. They'd fit the Cupoche form factor perfectly and the clothing thing makes it easier to integrate with the dollclothes part of the line.
They're actually pretty solid. From what I've seen they won't leak the plastic compound and get sticky like the older Nendo, and the ABS joints are usually pretty solid (only broke one joint before because I got clumsy and used too much brute force). Paint apps can be topcoated with something like Mr Ultra Clear to protect them longterm.
You can get it cheaper at amazon
Thanks for those links anons, I'm tempted to get this cute plush cat, also the Jackal God Anubis looks really cute IMO
They even are available as a bundle set
Here is a review for the White Cat parka set and the Monkey dress set
Something that I find interesting is in the end of this guy/gal's review, s/he posted two pics of Anne using one of the picco neemo dresses and it have a nice fit in a cu-poche body
Also some more recent pics for the Cu-poche Hestia that will be released this month
Seems like Koto make the blue lace around her bust line to be elastic, so it won't hinder the movement of her arms
About the only joint they truly lack is a wrist balljoint, but they already have so many joints they already have crazy articulation for their size class.
Wait a fucking minute, Koto DID buy licenses from Konami for Busou Shinki, right? They should really remake the Shinki as chibi little Cupoche figs. It's perfect, they can even have in-scale modular weapons and armor and use the Cupoche clothes.
SOMEONE EXPORT THIS ANON TO KOTO ASAP
Alright, just got my Anne in. First Cu-poche. They have longer legs than Nendos. Can be dressed up in teeny tiny clothing. And yeah, only restrictive area of articulation is the wrists, like >>5378600 says. She is the most fun desk figure ever. Oh yeah. Magnets in feet makes having the arm for the stand not as necessary, unless you want her in some kind of aerial pose. Stands on one foot easily.
Haven't taken pics yet. But do it, faggot. Get a Cu-poche. Some can even headswap with Nendos if you're worried about licensing.
Got mine too, plus first outfit.
Cu-poche might get me started sewing again.
>Wait a fucking minute, Koto DID buy licenses from Konami for Busou Shinki, right? They should really remake the Shinki as chibi little Cupoche figs. It's perfect, they can even have in-scale modular weapons and armor and use the Cupoche clothes.
Cu-poche Shinkis truly would be great, the only thing similar to this idea was some chibi figures made by Banpresto of the main 4 girls of the Shinki anime
On this same idea Kotobukiya could make Cu-poches from the IPs that they have, like Zoids, Yugi-Oh or the DC/Marvel Bishoujo line
Congrats anons, my Anne is still on transit
So whats with the Blonde original Cu-Poche girl. They use her in a ton of promotional shots for other extras, but I haven't seen her specifically for sale. Is she a planned release later this year and I'm just not finding the date?
And for sure she will have an expansion faces pack like Anne and Belle
Gah, I'll need to get Belles pony tail pack to then. I'm pretty much planning to give each girl one of the other girls face plates so their hair and eyes match up.
Anne will have brown hair and eyes [spoiler]j-just like me[/spoiler]
Looking at the cu-poche kotobukiya page, I'm seeing a LOT of outfits that aren't on Ami-ami. Pretty much all of them really.
I think I'm going to hit up the hobby lobby near me and pick up some fabric. See if I can sew up something or other. Maybe a yukata if they have something decent.
By the way, do we have an IRC or discord going, anything like that?
>Gah, I'll need to get Belles pony tail pack to then.
The face pack for Anne also comes with a ponytail in case you didn't knoe
>Looking at the cu-poche kotobukiya page, I'm seeing a LOT of outfits that aren't on Ami-ami. Pretty much all of them really.
Yeah, many of the outfits are Koto's shop exclusives sadly, but someone with skill can create their own, if you make some clothe for Anne, please share the patterns here
>By the way, do we have an IRC or discord going, anything like that?
>The face pack for Anne also comes with a ponytail in case you didn't knoe
Yeah I know, it's more about the extra face plates. Plus Anne's Ponytail is in her hair color, Belles in hers etc.
If I come up with any patterns I'll be sure to share them. I need to look up how to size outfits to fit, but I think I have an idea how that's done.
>If I come up with any patterns I'll be sure to share them
That would be great, anon
Yeah, I totally forget about these type of chat programs
IIRC there was a IRC chat for toy long ago, but I can remember his name, sorry
If you remove the original balljoint peg, the modular neckpiece newer Nendoroid figures use can seat the Cu-Poche neck balljoint peg loosely - you'll need to either fashion a plug of sorts to secure the peg or glue it in for proper seating.
Oh boy, these cu-poches might be my favorite figures I've ever seen so far. Im a poorfag who loves dolls but settles for figurines since theyre a million times cheaper. But these are cheap, cute, posable and have different clothes! Options seem kinda limited now, but im sure there'll be more soon enough. Im hype to get Anne, her extra faces and some clothes when I get my next paycheck.
Rikka's uniform looks enough like Maki's uniform with the jacket that I used it as the body base. Swapped in brown shoes from another Cu-poche.
I've found that those "sleeping bag" carrying pouches for nendos are built TALL, with a bar of foam acting as a spacer for the nendo to stand on inside it.
Take out that bar of foam, and it becomes the perfect sleeping bag for Cu-Poche.
Yeah, we noticed that before on one of the previous threads IIRC
Pic related for the speeping bags
I was lurkingg over the Play-Asia site and noticed that according to them, both the Extra Wakuwaku Dolce Sets will be on stock on Jan, 27th
And Hestia and Ikazuchi will be on stock on the 31st
Not sure if these will be the official release date of Kotobukiya, but if it is, we knoe for sure that these won't be delayed
Anne and the other Cu-Poche Friends original characters actually have a torso with nearly shinki-like articulation with a balljoint under the ribcage, rather than the 'standard' rotational point at the waist.
Got my cat parkas in, the other colour set is sitting in a warehouse in Japan waiting for me.
The Medicom 1/6 Real Action Hero. Doesn't come with those faceplactes you're seeing though since those are custom made by the guy who uploads the photos.
kinda sad Koto isn't flooding the market with tons of figs. I need more idols in my life. (general release Yayoi can't come fast enough).
Well, At least they are pumping a good amount of idols from the first IM@S series, something in that GSC or MF dropped the ball
Haruka Amami (Star Piece Memories ver.)
Miki Hoshii (Star Piece Memories ver.)
Yayoi Takatsuki (Star Piece Memories ver.)
8 in total. a good amount if you ask me
I guess Takane or Makoto will be next
>Hestia is in stock on AmiAmi
I just received yester my last haul from Amico, in this case Anne and the Parka sets with other stuff (Rement and MoMos)
Sorry for the shitty phone pics, I willl try to take batter pics later
Anne is really cute and well made, great poche and the Parka sets are really well made, the front zipper works, which surprise me pleasantly, the boots are from soft rubber material and have magnets too, the pants are a big hard to put in the body, but not too hard to do so
The cat tail is posable as it have a metal wire inside and you remove her hands to put the cat gloves
Overall I'm pleased with Anne and the parkas, would buy again
>Im assuming Yayoi is next pink outfit release as she's the current movie outfit one.
Yeah, I have to agree
How come all the older (mostly last year) Cu-poche cos stuff is so hard to find? I've look on auctions and other sites, they seem to be sold out/not for sale everywhere. I just want a bigger range of clothes for my cu-poches.. Should I just start sewing?
>How come all the older (mostly last year) Cu-poche cos stuff is so hard to find?
All these first sets made by Koto are webshop exclusives, So yeah, they are hard to find
>Should I just start sewing?
Yes, it would be cheaper than hunt down these clothing sets
