>there was a josuke pink for 5000 JPY on mandarake
>about to buy it
>cant find credit card
Eh. I'll double dip if pic related becomes Jonathan 2nd.
what other color schemes could/should they release Stone Free in?
get the large ichiban kuji star platinum then shove it up your [spoiler]cabinet[/spoiler]. if cute, I think there's a designer-like banpresto funko pop-ish vinyl
My first SAS came in the mail and I love it, the pissed off face is perfect
This is my first SAS so I don't know how it holds up against other versions/characters, but I haven't gotten any glaring issues with this one so far and it looks great
Just got my first SAS. It's Josuke 4. The peg connecting the stand to its base isn't hexigonal. Should it be like this?
I wittled it down. I hope I didn't fuck it up too bad.
I'm sold. Gonna get Crazy Diamond after my next paycheck.
Speaking of which I've been trying to upload Jotaro for the longest time and youtube cancels the upload halfway through, I'll try to get more out soon, sorry everythings taking so long
I've been stalking Mandarake for him. Recently got into Jojos. Only have a few thus far, some in the mail and I snagged a Giorno the other day.
I just really like that Rohan's design. Working on part 3's animation now.
ATM just have Jonathan, Dio from part 1, Joseph, Mista and Narancia. Caesar, Trish, alt color Mista and Giorno are in the mail. Have Fugo and Jotaro ordered from Amiami, but waiting to be invoiced for my monthly.
I want that Rohan and after that I'll probably pick up part 3 Dio.
There's a expensive/fancier, brown/purple/black rohan if you like him enough to get that. Only get the part 3 figures if you really like the cast of part 3, because a few of them have very poor areas of articulation, or at least not enough to recreate some of their crazier poses without some fooling around.
Oui. I only really like/tolerate Jotaro. I absolutely hated him at first, because Joseph was such a bad ass, likable dude. But he is growing on me. I think it's the orphan girl and his relationship.
I might get Josuke eventually. Doubt I'll buy anymore from part 4. Though it airing may change my mind.
Might break down and get all part 5. I like part five. I know the majority of people hate it. Mista's design really caught my attention early and I've read through a majority of it. However the scans I have are shit.
And back to the original question. I really like the white outfit/design. I have seen the color variant on Mandarake, but I'd rather have that white one.
Part 5 is tricky for me because while it was one of my least favorite parts, I really like the designs and didn't dislike the characters enough to not want them in my house. I think the only thing stopping me from getting a bunch of them is some kinda off looking figures and not great color choices. I think I'll probably end up grabbing purple haze though
So who's going 1st day on Mandy for this wonderful colorway when he drops? After Jolyne they really went for it this WF. Also real glad to see WF Joseph has a new partner in green to pair with.
You can wait out a few days or a week after the initial buyers and some guy will probably sell his later on at a Mandy storefront. Otherwise you can try your luck on Jungle or Terraformer (though I'm unsure how often they get SAS's)
WF GER sort of surprised me seeing how cheap he can get even with the Gio head. Lowest I saw Jolyne was 5k on Mandy. Though it will probably be bad if this particular colorway enters WF Giorno/WF Joseph territory for prices months afterward.
Well fuck, even a Killer Queen
>Send figure back to Mandarake because one of the legs is too long and the other one falls off every damn time you move it
>They get it back and then claim there's nothing with it
I got Esidisi first because it was the first one available. IMO in terms of quality Kars > Esidisi > Wham. Only thing Wham has is accessories. Esidisi is the better figure imo. He also seems to go up much less often than Wham. Kars is my favourite SAS so far.
A little off topic, but Jojo related. Got hold of this today, the issue of Shonen Jump that JJBA debuted in.
It's a little beat up, but no major damage and got it on the cheap, so pretty happy.
I told you, you wouldn't listen
You are already lost
I'm having a real hard time not throwing my wallet at Medicos for Part 4 Star Platinum and Jotaro, as well as Josuke and Crazy Diamond.
But I don't want to go down that pit of "I have these. Why not get more to go with them?"
For now, I'm sticking with good 'ol part 2 Joseph and investing all my money into a possible JoJo-tier Tokyo Ghoul line. (I hope.)
Looked in a magazine and found more info on WonFes stuff.
Swarovski Hierophant Green will be a lottery prize limited to 10, and like the Dio heads last show, there are two BT themed straps on sale.
Still waiting on the Statue Legend. Expecting a Middler repaint.
>Space Kars strap
>Space Kars paper weight
Guess they dug the idea of making an accessory of that scene.
Anything you're looking for? They're generally good SAS's but S&W is pretty limited in articulation and the pipes along his elbows tend to pop off(at least on me) but you can't go wrong. It even has 2 sets of hands and 3 heads.
Josuke is okay but the one I have is more heavily tanned than any other SAS's. He does come with a lot of stuff like the Moichi's Yashuo gives him, the chess pieces from the Daiya chapter, and a cellphone. Pretty standard articulation but I do like the fact his shirt sort of moves along the midsection of his torso.
thanks, thinking of getting these 2 specifically
Well they are your only option for this line but I know there's the statue legends that has another colorway for each if you're into that.
The newer boxes are glossier whereas the older ones are "matte"
Otherwise some postings on Mandarake may indicate with Joseph is the original or the reissue.
As for the figure the one thing that stands out immediately is the hermit purple hands has yellowish tips on it now.
Look at his hip joints. The older one has pegs that are inserted vertically into the waist, which is why so many people broke his hips because they weren't expecting articulation in that direction.
The newer one fixed the issue and gave him horizontal hip joints as you would expect from a figure.
There will never be any for any of the minor villains. And not even just minor, I'd be in shock if Diego gets an SAS. It'll probably just be Valentine who will get the villain slot.
I'm actually expecting Diego to get a SAS over most of the others in SBR. I'll be more surprised if we get characters like Mountain Tim and Sandman.
Really not sure which characters we will get for sure though outside of Gyro, Johnny and Valentine. Hot Pants, I guess.
Has the statue legend line stopped outside of exclusive releases? I can't remember the last regular release they had, since SAS especially have been slow lately with the TG stuff.
Also, has anybody ever updated the checklist? Did that die out? It was fun to see everything on it.
> item condition B
how fucked up is it likely to be? I dig the idea of a Swarovski KQ, but for that price I don't want a damaged one.
>Part 6 figures catching up to announced part 7 figs
>No Emporio, but he had very low chances
>No F.F or her stand
>No Weather report/Heavy Weather stand
>No Green baby with Pucci, chances for C-Moon or MiH very low
I've gotten B items before and there's hardly any issues, even looks new but with this case I'm unsure.
I'm still triggered that Pucci only comes with his star-hair, despite probably only having White Snake. And I haven't kept up with announcements, but I doubt White Snake will have an alternate Pucci head.
I've been really disappointed with some of the accessories and such recently.
I feel your pain. I badly want pucci's original haircut head.
also mad about trish not having a bacon hair head
jolyne's blue should be darker with neon green highlights.
still no giorno3
valentine will be pale pink
anime color part1 dio never
anime color jonathan never.
I don't like my jojos all blue or all green. original part2 joseph always bothered me, and so do both jonathans.
Hopefully someone can help me. Well owners of Casear anyways. I got mine today and I'm having a really difficult time with his bicep swivel. By hard time, I mean, I can't get it to swivel. It's fine on his left arm, but looks really awkward on the right mainly when I bend the elbow. I've tried heating it up with a hair dryer and I'm curious if the figure is just know to have issues with this. Next step I'll try is boiling water.
Another I noticed, is the ball joint for the legs looks textured and I've never noticed this in any of my other Jojo figures.
Thanks guys in advance.
The boiling water treatment worked! The worst looking arm was his right. Well soaking his right arm, the left bicep swivel starting moving. A little while later I got them both working. Lots of fussing with the right arm, but once I let it dry some, it started moving.
Quite honestly, I'm fine with PB Dio as is. I always thought using his SDC colors, or something similar to them looked awful on the PB clothing. Especially when it's all green and yellow, it doesn't look as good as how it works with his SDC outfit. (Though I will admit, PB anime Dio has the best clothes, it'd be nice to get something of that.)
But Dio is one of those figures I felt really let down about the accessories. As it's been said to death, it's a shame he didn't get a stone mask, that's kind of crazy. And I personally would have really loved to have had him come with a scarf.
And Pucci has that hat. I don't remember that ever being a thing in the manga, was it? Or maybe was it something on a cover? And even still, it looks like an odd hat, a bit big. He could've had a green baby.
For Pucci, part of me wants to just say "Fuck it" and get the RAH. At least he has both types of heads and a green baby.
I was a little surprised to see this given how easily forgotten it is. Guess Medicos is saving Green Baby for C-Moon or something special.
I think I only remembered the hat bit because it reminded me of this album cover. I guess that made it stick in my mind a little longer.
This is the laziest accessory they've ever done, second to the stick (churro) that comes with Star Platinum part 4.
Diavolo's sweater is the best thing they've ever included, even if it's a huge pain to get on.
The hat I can display for humor but the stick for Star Platinum was the lamest to me. You can "recreate" the scene with it and SHA but there was little else to really go for in terms of display potential. Figured he would get a soundplate like,
『Star Platinum: The World!』
White Killer Queen, I mean.
Got my order in bois, waiting on Stone Free, Trish and Spice Girl next week.
Sorry for the quality, just have my phone on me.
You chose the wrong color for both figures. Congrats
>Blue/White The Hand
I bet you kiss girls, faggot.
You probably think tits > ass as well, what shit taste
>Baldy is an ass man as well
Well that's one thing we can agree on at least
In life there is only ass, but no good ass is complete without equally amazing thighs and hips.
Tits are just a bonus, though DFC is just as good when combined with the above.
Well I know Mandarake on ocassion sells special packs with various soundplates or WF bases with arms. I even remember a mega pack with a ton of soundplates for around 4k or so.
Those Figuarts bases could work as replacement for SAS maybe?
We only have a Gyro announcement and a possible prototype for this coming WF. Expect Valentine and D4C to come later on if they go beyond Johnny and somehow work out his Tusk Acts
The lack of this beautiful bastard is absolutely criminal as well.
Maybe when Medicos burns out of colorways and characters then they could expand to stuff Araki made on the side.
There was also an album cover art he made for SOUL'd OUT. And to go even further maybe BAOH
Though fun endgame for Medicos would be a special Hirohiko Araki SAS that the man himself designed and colored.
If you stick to Mandy then Wham is usually around 8k yen while Cars and ACDC are 3.5-4.5k
I've heard jungle is pretty good as well but I've never used it myself. If you're patient they'll eventually show.
He is a great fig dude. Some very interesting extra hands to make him look creepy and he has that weird brain accessory you can add to Joseph's back. A solid release.
Stalk Mandy, Terra and Jungle and get the rest.
I enjoy posing them and never quite being satisfied with what I get.
at least new Josuke doesn't break but parts falling off(gold heart and peace) and paint isn't as good as older releases. still waiting for that guy's pics. his hair has bad quality too
Sort of hope Medicos can make a Josuke 3rd and pack him with something interesting.
here's the new reissue's head
Quit pretending like SAS first issues never had QC issues. One guy posts about some problem and you all go batshit insane. Call me when it's tons of confirmed cases like black Dio and even he came out alright for me, it wasn't all of them.
The first release face wasn't good on Josuke either, look up old reviews. The hair thing is no different from any other SAS that didn't get a part glued on right. I can name dozens of releases where some poor soul got unlucky.
Fact is Josuke isn't rushed because his figure took a normal release spot and the new anime isn't even coming that soon so they could have pushed it back if necessary.
Are you dumb? People are discussing it on the assumption that the release does have QC issues, like somebody had said earlier (whether it's actually confirmed or not is a different matter.)
No body is shitting their pants because a lone person got a shoddy QC figure, calm down.
It's a ridiculous assumption. One case isn't even close to enough to make that determination. It's especially not enough to go around spreading hearsay that it's the worst release in the entire history of SAS.
These kinds of assumptions just get people all stressed out over nothing and might make someone skip a release they want out of irrational fear. Then later on they learn the release was perfectly fine and some reactionaries here screwed them out of a release.
There is nothing wrong with reporting specific issues a specific person had and posting specific pictures while clarifying "it's just this one guy so far" but that's not what people here are doing.
I'm just guessing since Jotaro got a pretty good 3rd release with those punch effects for the anime adapation.
I personally want Oku the most to finish up my Part 4 collection but I'm betting on a re-release before a 2nd variant. Hard to tell with Medicos from time to time.
Anon did a pretty cool "The World" colorway edit for CD.
Yeah, the eyes are real cool! I think it really adds to white KQ's lack of color.
(Also the colors on blue KC are super vibrant and nice, do it)
Strangely, no. Just KQ has the red eyes!
It's a flawless figure, really. Since it's painted like one airbrush color theres very little room for error. It's super great.
It's really odd how that one KQ gotten the red eyes. Seems someone handling the paintwork wanted to experiement and quickly sent it off for packaging.
Kind of tempted now to get some Vallejo paint on my spare KQ and test out some colors.
>manage to get Kars for $50 on mandarake
>oldsephs legs snap off like twigs 2 minutes after opening him up, just like everyone said
The toy gods give and they take away. At least Sticky Fingers, Giorno, and Rohan came in completely fine.
At this point, I'm waiting on Koichi, Magician's red, Silver Chariot, The Hand, the reissue Josuke, and Kars to come in.
Which means at that point, I just need Avdol to complete the stardust crusaders (really dunno if it's worth going through the trouble of buying Oldseph again), and echoes 2/3 to finish part 4, Wamu to finish the pillar men, and Gold experience for Giorno. At that point, I dunno if it's worth tracking down the rest of part 5 (don't like them as much, but they're all readily available and relatively cheap), or finishing up with young Johnny and Joseph.
Hey guys, so I'm looking to start Part 5. What is the best version available? I know the pastebin mentions the kinda shoddy quality of the early translations, but would that be worth checking out or just waiting until some better ones are finished (if any are even still being done now)?
>valentine will be pale pink
Honestly, Valentine is the only figure Id buy a pink version of, if he still has the blonde hair
his white look is his best though
>rubbery black combined with lavender purple
>better than blue and white
Got Soft & Wet in this morning.
That's me done for the forseeable future.
It took approximately 4 seconds for the tubing on his left knee joint to come off. It's fine other than those tubes.
I'd like that too. I'm in the minority, but I like part 5 best. The scans I have are shit.
I don't think much can be worse than Black DIO. I just got reissue Josuke, he's my 13th SAS, and I don't see him having any issues yet.
I've only had 2 accidents with my SAS figures, and one was Black DIO who snapped whenever I touched him, both at the waste and the leg, and I had a King Crimson who had an unfortunate fall breaking his arm.
I doubt it. I'm not even into her character but I feel Hot Pants would probably be a decent SAS release for a SBR line.
Mountain Tim would be interesting given his stand ability.
I got Old Joseph the other day and was wondering. Can indirect sunlight fade out figures? I know direct sunlight can, but can light reflected off over other shit still harm them? I have two windows in my room so my room gets a decent amount of light during the day, even with blinds and curtains.
I could see Medicos going for that but I forgot how colorful Gyro is so I'm going to wait on the official reveal (if it's going to be painted or just a typical prototype)
Man, I'm not sure what was up with EOH's default Johnny and Gyro colors for that. Neon Green Johnny kept hurting my eyes.
VERY VERY fucking nice anon. Plus I love the way you've put some creativity behind the fists rather than go down the easier but less impressive road of just capturing a series of different static punches.
I think the Josuke one looks the best out of these.
My first three SAS. Couldn't decide which SP I liked more so I got two. Part 2 Joseph should be here Friday.
Pucci is out on the 31st, so you have some time before he's out.
Found this in a 2ch "post your collection" thread going on at the moment.
Got my first SAS figure. Don't have Dio but Doras works pretty well.
Soft & Wet came in today and holy hell is its neck brittle. Taking the head off damn near ripped away the peg. Anybody have tips for reinforcing the neck peg or widening the head holes? No way in hell I'm getting this thing broken Day 1
I love my Jotaro, only fucked up part is that it's missing the peg part on the end so that it attaches to the stand.
>Kabuto and The World
tfw Kabuto renewal in the mail
also tfw current Kabuto has a loose right toe joint
Just wait until Winter WF anon. It's getting close now and I'm sure they'll have something ready
Just scored this guy for cheaper than I ever expected to and he's quickly become my favorite Jojo.
I have a place near me called Image Anime but they price SAS's at $70+tax.
Another anon reported from a Con they sold SAS's but at similar price points. Nothing too rare and just common releases.
I've traveled to mines and places that sells figures are either rare or just hard to find. I managed to find a place that sells random assortments and oddly enough, 1/6 and ThreeA items. Nothing SAS related
Also as nice as having Image Anime is, the prices are too far out there even with the decent stock. Here's a link
Funny, I just got Jotaro and I really dislike him compared to 9 I already have. The head looks too small and the hip joints are a bad design. I like the classic ball joint there.
My first two
Came through a couple of weeks ago
Not gonna go crazy, might just get 2 more
>Not gonna go crazy
You're a better man than I.
I own a lot of SAS and it's always been bad qc time for me. I'll just list the ones I like.
star platinum (part4 ver). a lot of SASfags hate his colors, and it'll probably get a rerelease as soon as the p4 anime starts so don't buy one just yet.
part2 joseph is a safe bet, it's amazing.
except I hate the all blue outfit so I got the recolor which is expensive.
purple haze looks stunning but it has an average range of motion.
gappy has a very dynamic sculpt but his headsculpt and skintone is horrid.
king crimson is excellent but a victim of derpy eyes.
jonathan is just as good as joseph.go for it.
the hand 2nd is great but the shading is fucked on mine.
Not him but after messing around with each for this long it goes like this.
Diavolo is fine though I heard issues about his eyes on the smiling head. Mines seems okay but I'm hardly looking at that detail too much. Shading on his body seems to vary on closer inspection but nothing deal breaking. Expect putting him in the sweater pose to be the biggest hurdle if you want that display.
Giorno is good but color preference will either make him a typical or expensive purchase (pink as his regular release vs his fantastic blue as a WF exclusive) Articulation is pretty standard and the mileage on his accessories will vary on you (never used the bread and lighter but messed around with the tea cup)
I only have WF Gold Experience but he's pretty cheap and color matches Giorno 1st really well. Big issue I noticed on mines was the peg for those straps on his waist came out but a small bit of glue made it fine again.
Part 4 Jotaro isn't the greatest for his articulation but I do like the backpack you can sling on his shoulder and the angry expression. Plus you can swap his hats which I thought was a nice addition given the design on each.
Are there any notable differences between the original release and the re-released version of The World? From what i noticed the original release tends to use a darker tone of paint and has a distinct line going from the eyes but i could be wrong. Anyone here actually owns both releases?
