The S shape is always good advice though. The basic idea is that straight lines tend to look stiff.

Racing Miku 2016
figma Kat from Gravity Daze
figma Asuna ALO Ver.
figma Racing Miku 2015ver.
Don't fall for shitposting bait
Just report, filter and/or ignore.
Proven way to kill all shitposters.
New race miku looks neat. Not as slutty as this year, but just sexual enough
>Batou's face when he still doesn't get a figma
>ONE alternate head or faceplate as a GSC exclusive
Cute knight charging at you. What do?
>Plunge your sword at her
What do you think of the recent debut of the S-Style? It's like..... an off-shoot of the MF's figFiX line, but actually reasonably priced (for now). Will those heads be compatible with figma? It'll be interesting if they do.
First of all
>Posting statueshit that are against the rules,
Constanza smug face.jpg
That being said, this is FREEing's first attempt at Prize figures that are in 1/12 scale, I guess that they could look good alongside our figmas, Luka looks really good IMO, tempted to get her to display her with my Luka figma
If FREEing keep making them in a low price these could become a good option to the figfix line to persons who like statueshit with a good price, afterall Max Faggotry's FigFIX line were supposed to be a line of affordable 1/12 scale statueshit, but they killed that by charging 5-6k (check Anchovy's price) and having shitty exclusives like the Madogatari Shinobu
The figFix line was a mistake and I hope that it dies in a molten lava pit as it deserves
So anons, what did you all get for Christmas?
My father bought me the Panzer IV and I love it.
On a side note anyone know how I go about doing the RC mod on it?
>I think that anon's point is the compatibility potential with figma; like face plates, neck joints, etc
The issue here is we still don't knoe if these figures will have neck joints or faceplates, none of the info in the item's page hint this so far
>Would be interesting if this line scales/works well with figma.
>1/12th scale pre-painted assemblable PVC product with stand included. Approximately 150mm in height.
These are stated as 1/12 scale statueshit, and figmas fall under this scale as they are around the same height of 145mm-150mm
Decided to buy Miku 2.0 because she's cheap + comes with a lot of neat stuff. Tempted to buy Yui too but I'm worried I won't have enough leftover to pay for my January preorders on Amiami
Can't believe I actually convinced myself that I didn't want this. Arigato Santa=SAN.
Better get ready for Big Ninja Slayer then.
Wait for an announcement or Winter WF anon. Check the OP for more details

Have the Avengers gone up very far in price since their releases?
On one hand I'd like to wait and see how Hulk turns out since the others didn't turn out too well (to me, anyway) but on the other it's already a hundred bucks.
I've sent rerelease requests to them too, but all I got was a link to their Facebook page
Today was a good day for boobs and butt.
Sorry for the awful quality my cameras battery is charging.
I just got mine on Christmas eve and I personally love the figure, the articulation is great and it looks fantastic, the only problem for me is the grey chest piece that isn't in the promo shot.
Got Anzu for $51 off Ebay. Gave her some oniichans of Steel.
Yawning. I just covered her open eye.
Eh? I got it as a buy it now from a guy in New York as it was missing the sleeping face plate. Think you got the wrong guy.
Mine seem to hold in place via friction. Not a perfect fit, but the trigger finger and thumb seem to fit into the trigger perfectly.
Quick picture for reference. It holds in with well enough for poses but not rough play. Hope it helps!
Sorry for the messy work table.
So is Ryuko really worth a shit ton of money or is the internet lying to me?
Also figma when
Looks like a solid statue. Wouldn't bunch them with FigFixes since their heads and face place can be replaced with and work with Figmas.
These just seem to be 1:12 scale statues.
I personally don't think they belong on this bored, let alone this thread.
Hey guys , I know this doesn't need its own thread but I was ordering some figmas from gsc and as I went on to the shipping part. There was no option for me to click on. Is anyone having the same problem as me?
I got Saber 2.0 and the Honoka and Kotori Love Live figmas.
Saber is unbelievable, probably the best figure I own. Kotori is nice, and Honoka is just OK. Her head and neck look really strange from most angles, but she's cute so whatever.
That's weird, I have ordered from them before, gsc uses forced ems. Well, they made a lot a changes in their shop, maybe there is something new that you're missing. Read their faq first.
In worst case scenario, you should email them about it.
I just got Okabe figma and I managed to broke his right arm when I tried to rotate it in front of him. After a closer inspection I cant rotate the joint at all and this worry me a lot. Anyone got a similar issue ?
You're illiterate and you have the strength of ten 'tards.
As an owner of TV Strength, I cannot even begin to contemplate what a fucking nightmare that must be to set up. Quite aside from the fact those fucking hands are heavier than the figure itself and the connections between the hands and the figures are very tenuous (at least on my figure) there's the fact that 4-armed Strength requires 5 STANDS.
He's an older figma, so he was probably sitting in the package for a long time and his joints set.
Let this be a lesson. Never force a joint. If it feels like it's not going to move, then get some hot water or a blow drier to soften the joint a bit.
>Anyone got a similar issue ?
Nope, the joints on mine work perfectly. You shouldn't force them if they're stuck.
Well, I say that as a rule of thumb to everybody, but I always force the stuck joints on my figures until they work. The difference is that I know how much force I can use and the way to apply it so I don't put stress on them, so I always manage to fix them without breaking anything. Most people are just hamhands/not careful enough though, so the warm water/hair dryer trick is the best .
I took the innards from this tank and tricked out my Panzer IV
Friend got me an Eli, despite the fact that I've never watched Love Live at all.
She's still fun as hell regardless and her faces are great for stupid images.
Granted this is one of my only figma, but considering all of them have decent butts I'd say this is a contender.
Satsuki is a Major contender, but I feel we should have a list of the best figma butts.
Satsuki is pretty great. I only have 2 problems with her butt.
1: It kinda inhibits backwards leg articulation.
2: The fact she has a fully sculpted butt AND a cheek on each leg piece kinda makes her look like she's got some overhang going on, as if she were slightly overweight.
That said she is close to being queen of the butts, second only to Hibiki. Though TV Black Gold Saw and her butt-cleavage are pretty impressive, it has to be said.
Topic: I kinda wish Max Factory/GSC would have a go at making a slightly overweight Figma- not because I'm some deluded HEALTH AT EVERY SIZE Tumblrtard, but A: because I'd like to see how they handle the extra mass with regards to articulation, and B: because plump (not obese) girls are my fetish.
The poster is just a bit flamboyant is all. Don't know why he used the word "Ow", lol...again, a flamboyant poster.
However, i'm sure his 'BENDY!!' remark (lol...more flamboyancy) is in reference to the new figma stand pole. It bends at a more acute angle than the old ones. I believe Yu Nurakami was the first one with this, something like that.
Yeah, he could have came with another faceplate (or two), but all in all I like the Lee figma.
Its all from the donor tank with the exceptuion of twin motors that drive the tracks. The ones in the donor are almost exactly the same so I just kept the orignals that came with the panzer and wired those up to the electronics from the abrams.
Its not too hard to set up but you do have to be gentle and take your time as you can easily break some of the more fragile parts of the donors wiring and circuit boards.
The wiring will have to be lengthened by splicing in additional wire in several places to make it work. Since I want to break this down eventually for paint I spliced in some male/female wiring clasps between all the various motors so It can be easily broke down without having to gut it all again.
I'm very Happy that Sakura made it into Hobbysearch's Figure department Top 15 for 2015!
Hope GSC/MaxFac considers making a figma Syaoran now. Nice to see Satsuki too and Lucina taking up thye 1st spot.
I'm now waiting for Mikatan's/Kahotan's blog to post GSC's Figure Ranking for 2015.
If she sold this well across the board they better consider more FE figmas. Having only one Awakening rep was a waste, I was expecting at least more of the future children with her. Let's see what they do with the IF/Fates license.

Is pic related what the figma Tsukihi Araragi looks like under the kimono pieces (well, the torso anyways)? Pic related was apparently an Ebay listing that was removed, so it could just be a custom body.
>Max Factory specializes in Fan Service
>Hasn't finished this series yet
Plus, when are we getting Little Witch figmas?
This kind of a late post.
Finally got myself Figma Fate Lightning Form as an early XMas gift to myself. With it I finally completed the Figma Nanoha Movie 2nd A's line.
My problem now is completing the StrikerS line and should I get myself the school girl versions of Nanoha & Fate.
Forgot the pic.
Pardon the phone cam quality.
Am i get it right, that she will be re-released? Or i should buy her now?
the chest is removable, you can put something yellow inside, that's what i did with mine (and i'm have been mentioning it every time this subject comes up), i think i need a more yellowish paper though
besides that, i don't think painting it would be a bad idead either, try to do it from the inside though
Id love to see a Hector figma or hell, any FE7 lord. Too bad it is extremely unlikely we'll ever get one.

Makoto Tachibana/Haruka Nanase
Davide di Michelangelo
There really aren't straight-up lewd Figma. There are a couple of the Queens Blade figures and Ikkitousen figures that have their clothes ripped up. And a lot of figures have the infamous ass technology, but that's more fanservice-y than straight-up lewd.
Then there's the two bikini Sonicos with the popsicles .
In no specific order my personal top 5 figma would be
As for the lewdest
>Any of the Table Museum figma
>Adult Mikuru Asahina
>Cute from Queen's Blade
Personal top 5
1-Satzbatz Knight/Ninja Slayer(largely the same sculpt but the accessory count on each is worth the purchase)
5-Bubble Head Nurse
Top 5 for me in no order would be
>Pyramid Head/Nurses (I'll count them as one since they're a set)
Great likeness to the game with stylistic liberties that don't feel forced, as well as great articulation.
Phenomenal articulation and dead-on to the manga, tons of accessories.
Again, perfect likeness and a good range of motion.
Great as a stand-in zombie if you're in need of a 6-in scale enemy, and some cool accessories.
>Berserker Armor Guts
The best Berserk figma thus far, really hard to find but worth it with the amazing sculpt and great articulation.
Well it looks like a great many of you really love the samus figure, as well as the Ninja slayer. I'll grab those two next along with the pyramid head since I forgot to add him to my hlj order before shipping it.
No panties in knots. I'm just saying, if they're a set, then all the dragon knight figmas are a set. Then all the kancolle girls are a set. All the vocaloids are a set. The k-on girls, the ninja slayers, etc
I'm sure you could find better tables if you really looked around. But considering its price and availability, yeah I'd absolutely recommend it.
I should really buy some silver spray and spray down the metal pieces of mine. That image reminds me how nice they could look.
Sorry for the very late reply. Fate Lightning Form is alright. Compared from her Movie 1st version she's a much better Figma. The only downside for me are its accessories. They're not as many as I'm used to other Nanoha Figmas. But other than that she's pretty good.
Jolly good show, sir. Thanks!
Kinda surprised not to see Motoko Kusanagi on anyone's list, given all of what she's capable of in movement...
Here's mine though.
As far as lewd, I'd say Hakufu cause her top tears and has underboob, both Swimsuit Sonicos, noted for the suggestive Popsicle and face, Satsuki for dat ass, the adult version of a chacter from Haruhi's show (teacher), and maybe the other figma female from goodness knows what anime where her only piece of clothing is a dress shirt.
it looks like fuunsaiki, which is master asia's horse.
Sorry if this sort of question comes up a lot, but what is the easiest way to acquire the Saber Lily figma? I understand it only came with the Fate Unlimited Codes limited edition, and I have found this on amazon but I'm nervous to order it and not get the figure with it.
Two on Mandarake right now without the game.
Happy New Year 2016 figmafags!
Is your wallet ready?
Something about an Anglerfish Team Set and more information coming soon.
The "Anglerfish team set" makes me think of a rerelease of the five figmas in a single box or something (possibly without the tank interior pieces so the price is more adjusted). That could be used to boost the new tank sales.
As for the Akihabara part... A GuP promotional campaign with several displays over Akihabara, maybe?
Would some anon who owns both version of Aegis (that is, #49 and the Ultimate one) be kind enough to do a headswap and post the photo? I'd really like to see the Ultimate's head on the P3's body.
