Is Kirby getting canceled? I'm getting so fucking worried. I think i'm gonna have a panic attack.
Did you guys order figma ALBW Link? If so, what version and from where?
I ordered the regular version from hlj in case I'd want to easily cancel. Not very fond of this barebones release, but I live in a shithole and don't have much of an option.
>video of someone at GSC messing with a production sample of a figure
>IS IT CANCELED?
Shitting Christ. I hate to dig up the "fucking /v/" routine, but that certainly applies here. I can't think of a single instance where a figure was canceled after preorders opened. Even if there's an issue with Kirby, the worst that'll happen is that he'll get delayed. But considering that it looks like the final product has already been manufactured, that seems unlikely at this point. Either way, they'll give a final word on the matter (either a shipping date or a delay notification) in one of their weekly release updates this month - if not today, one of the other Mondays in January.
DX version from the GSC online shop as soon as it went up, before I realized it was only exclusive there in Japan. Little upset, but at least I'll be getting it sooner than later upon release. Wish they were clear in the beginning about the exclusivity.
Now cross reference that list with the Figmas and Nendoroids that are supposed to release this month. Notice all the figures missing from the release info?
Gee, Max Factor must be cancelling half their products that were due out this month!!
What does cancelling have to do with this shit?
This is how things work there. If its not on the release schedule or an actual date on the amazon jp website its delayed indefinitely.
Because they typically don't list out every single figures confirmed release date at the beginning of the month. Most of the time they confirm their release date a week or two before their release. They can still add figures like Kirby to that list.
Does anyone know how made the really old animal crossing stuff? Like the giant house, museum, the little figure sets? Was that tomy? I'm trying to find more information on them but looking around doesn't give me anything.
Welp, I found my grail. Apparently there's a museum too, but I can't even find a listing for it anywhere on the internet. I am sad.
So why did you decide to shitpost here on this thread of all places?
Oh, what the fuck!!
>mfw I bought Red for 70 bucks
Oh well, lol.
So, I suppose this new version comes with Charizard, Venusaur, Blastoise?
Does this mean that it does NOT come with Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle?
Also, it comes with a Great and Ultra Ball? (fucking awesome!)
So does that mean it does NOT come with a Poke / Master ball?
Trying to decide if I want to try and sell my Red or anything... but if the new one is missing the starter Pokemon, I may just end up keeping mine.
What do other people plan on doing?
>Red: Champion Edition Features Three Evolved Original PokémonYou can change Red's expression-and pose him with 3 powerful Pokémon! This special limited-edition Red: Champion Edition posable figure includes: 1 body, 2 faces, 4 arms, 2 legs, 2 Poké Balls including Ultra Ball and Great Ball, a base with stand, and 3 Pokémon-Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise! Use the different face parts and different arms to customize Red and get the look you want.

Sell the Red, keep the starters and pokeballs. If you're quick, reddit and ebay might not know of this yet.
>What do other people plan on doing?
I plan on buying it.
Why do I have to do all the reading for you?
I obviously read the description too.
I just felt like posting here and clarifying, in case anyone scrounged up some extra info on a Japanese site or whatever.
Thanks though. Yeah, I might try and sell my Red figure real quick and keep the starters/pokeballs. Wonder how much I could get for that though. Heck, I guess if I can even get 50 bucks it'll be worth it if I'm just going to buy him again
>tfw going half a year without your Red nendo
fuck my life
what is amiami's policy on these things, are they gonna wait until the 31st to see if the figures got delayed before they ship the rest of the order?
Don't have either, but I'd personally rather have the starters since they can also scale better to other figures rather than just the Nendos. Plus there are always the d-arts for those who were smart enough to grab them.
I am hoping that this might increase his chances of getting a figma. Obviously they seem to be aware that he sells well.
Does anyone have the UPC or TRU item # for Jakks Metroid? I found out a buddy of mine started working at TRU for the season but they kept him after Christmas. Seeing if he can track down as I've been trying several local ones since summer but absolutely no luck.
Well they're waiting until a confirmed release date is set. It would be unlikely that GSC would wait until the 31st to announce a delay though.
Dude, we're not even halfway through the month and things come up when producing the figures so they can't really give an exact release date until they're sure they're ready. This is nothing new. If it bothers you so much just order each item separately from now on and hope they get released close enough for you to combine shipping.
polymer balls dont seem to work that well in the tank. in my glass vases they are invisible but not in the tank. regardless I like it makes the metroid look biger
or the D-Arts. It's shorter than the Nendo, at Pit's height.
I meant the Koto model kit.
>Just spend half my amazon gift card on two toys that aren't even that good
>Tons of orders coming up
>One of the people I live with is getting fed up with all the toys in my room (it's a real clusterfuck)
If there is a god, he is a vindictive one
All three starters were included with Red so that nobody's personal choice is favored. Therefore, a Blue should come with all 3 fully evolved starters for the same reason, while representing his championship battle.
I think I decided what I'm going to do with my extra Red Nendoroid.
Paint the red clothes blue?
I know it's kind of silly as there's no character who looks like that, but I don't know what else to do with it, other than having two Red's fighting each other.
>tfw starting to get back into F4F figures since Ammy was announced
>tfw about to order the Sonic Generations exclusive diorama as well as Windwaker Ganondorf
Now I'm regretting not getting Wolf Link when I had an opportunity. At least I bought pic related a few years back. How fucked am I to get one on the secondhand market?
I feel it depends on which one you get. Link's face does look kind of weird in that picture, but he looks pretty great in real life. To each their own, though.
A Blue colored Red is what I imagined the other player you trade with in gen I to look like. Like "Player 2" colors.
Alternately,I'd love to color him in classic Game Boy color tones.
Man it's hard trying to find that damn WoN Gold Mario. All the TRU/Target stores near me have told me that they have been getting calls non-stop regarding those toys.
Would it be better to just buy the regular Mario and repaint the fucker in gold or any other fucking variant? I have the Figuarts Mario; if I just want to make simple snapshots and stop motion, can I use like a temporary latex paint? Would that damage the figure?
I think there are a lot of scalpers in my area though. Talked to one of the workers at my local Target and they said that some people just come every other day and buy in bulk whenever they restock.
I hope there's enough hype to make "action" figures for most of these guys. I mean, they just introduced Garchomp
Snagged Ocarina Link today. He's both an improvement and yet a step back from the Skyward Sword version. I feel like he really was meant to be 4" given his sometimes sloppy sculpt, especially on his sword's sheath, but I do prefer the ankle joints on this version versus the double-ball joints we had before(They're swivel-hinge, though I'd have liked them inverted). Also, his wrists, thankfully, are about the same angle this time around, so it won't be as awkward to have things that aren't swords held in his sword hand.
That said, whoever sculpted him clearly sculpted his right arm to be in a shield-ready position, you can't get that arm as close to the body as the left nor can you straight the elbow fully. I might see if I'm ok with Skyward having huge hands if they're compatible, because overall, that's the only real issue I have with that version, personally.
I found a single Metroid at Toys R Us, and it drove me home.
Yes yes I need to clean my window, the weather's been absolutely awful lately with the cold and on and off rain.
I dont really count red gyarados in the same category as other shiny mons due to his plot point in the games and the fact that he was one you always could get in the game. made him not feel as special as other shinys. My opinion may not be the same as most but its my two cents
It holds for the most part but just irritates the hell out of me it could be tighter. Too bad it's the only Link I could find.
At least the Waluigi Bowser Jr. wave was moderately kind to me in terms of QC. Had to pledge repair Waluigi's knees though.
So if we're getting Champ Red... does that mean we'll get a nendo of Pokemon Trainer Gold next?
I'd be down with that.
I'm going to make a wild guess and assume the next Pokemon Nendos are Champion Steven and Professor Sycamore. Then we'd need someone to represent the second gen, so I guess Gold/Ethan wouldn't be out of the question. As much as I love the games I can hardly remember any of the characters from Gold and Silver
I like Gold as much as I liked Red. Any pokemon game after I played as a female trainer.
But judging by current trends we'll likely get:
- Blue Green Dicks Oaks
- Lance (because Champion muh elite 4)
Probably not likely:
- Goddamn Wallace
Well, to be fair, not all the pokémon on the roster have shinies that stand out from their normal forms.
>Camping local websites for Shovel Knight amiibo, TP Bundle and FE Fates Bundle
>Every time I've stopped camping in the past, BOOM out of stock
I can't live like this, it's driving me nuts. I wish I was rich so I could just afford the $50 extra shipping it would cost to import and not give a fuck.
He's stopped at red turn signal. probably has ample time to prepare an opened metroid and setup his phone camera
Oh yeah, I can understand now. Sometimes when I stop at a red light my first thought is "now would be a GREAT time to take a picture of that toy".
One time a police car was next to me but I showed him I was just taking a photo and he let me off.
Who do you tend to prefer for Nintendo stuff? GSC stuff can be pretty good. Also, it was based off of this, anon.
>tfw no Donkey Kong figure that isn't a bag of dicks
I've love a Figuarts release, or for Jakks to give it another go. Their DK figure is just horrendous.
You guys know where to get the Shovel Knight amiibo with relatively cheap international shipping? eBay and Play-Asia are not helping atm.
Dong's fine, if big-headed. Bowser's a beautiful piece, but their sculptor seems to do their work in a fixed pose and then work to make it articulated rather than designing it for articulation to begin with. Metroid is fucking beautiful, never had a Ganondorf though so I can't say about that one.
Just got an email from Scott Nietlich
>Mark your calendars! JAKKS Pacific's second annnual NEW YORK TOY FAIR Collector Bash is back! We are set for Saturday Feb 13th from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon with sneak peaks for all ur fantastic lines including BIG FIGS (Star Wars, Power Rangers, Batman vs. Superman, DC Classics, TMNT, HALO), World of Nintendo, Warcraft and more!
What do you want to be shown?
Check your privilege, Nintendo doesn't even have an official presence where I live. I had to pre-order the wolf amiibo from France.
I think Dong only ever had a head as big as Jakks in one game.
Here's quick little picture that I took with Deku Link
Always wanted a Samus fig, but I was slightly butthurt over the Figma being the Other M suit so I got the Jakk's metalic exclusive off amazon for $22.99.
My morphball has shitty paint, but otherwise pretty happy with it.
And the shitty morphball. It's like they forgot to paint the details on one entire side. Can't care too much though, I only wanted the Samus.
Not that guy. I don't have the Figma, I've got the WoN. But this is /toy/, where playability is the main factor, and as-is, the Figma is better in terms of its accessories, poseability, sculpt, with its main detractions being price and durability. I bought the WoN because I'm a Joe fan plus I'm not afraid to fix what's wrong with my toys.
If you care about the games, go to /v/, but this is /toy/, we're discussing the toys, not the games
so are these just gonna be a pokken figure line or
Has anyone here used fromjapan before? I'm trying to get http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/offer-listing/B0002SRHLU/ref=olp_from_sims
More specifically, the second listing. I can't get it to show up on the website though. Would anyone mind helping with this dilemma? Getting that second one would be super great.
No, see, I have a middleman already. The problem is the item I want is the more expensive one, because it comes with a lot more for the price, instead of just the house. I can't get the url of just that item to punch in, so it defaults to the cheaper one.
on the middle man I gave you lets you leave a message to the person who will order it for you so you can make it as specific as you want.
write the sellers name and the price and they should order it for you
I remember getting this from 711 almost 20 years ago. I still own it to this day and it still smells like coffee.
Oh man, I had both waves of these things way back in the day. Donkey Kong was always my favorite.
I also had the Banjo-Kazooie beanie. Shit ruled.
It finally came. I'm pretty sure I'm the first person to receive this. Should I talk about it?
it's kinda big, but it's probably true to the smash bros scale
Went into EB the other day since I had a gift card. They had four of these guys so I decided to scoop one up. If they trend like the other amiibos, I'm sure the price will drop eventually. And if you have any local stores that sell amiibos, I'd suggest looking as well since apparently both me and a different anon have seen them in store.
I would like machamp, and cubone, and its a plus that cubone has a quick ball because its my favorite ball
but are they even out or in june they come out? I dont understand why it says december and june
I got the mega man nendo but I was dumb and combined it with the stupid frozen nendos on amiami (im new to toys) and i havent received a payment thing even though it says mega man is released on the site. Is this normal?
We'll get an good articulated ness figure someday...right? He'll be part of a line of articulated mother characters right?
They've always announced release dates like this, how new are you?
Lucina didn't get her final release date until a week before she was due in stores and that was at the very last weekend in August.
Other m and most other Samus suits have the same silhouette, I know, but among metroid fans the super metroid/prime2 varia suits are accepted as the best-designed iconic Samus.
So I don't prefer the other M suit but figma did do an amazing job on the sculpt and artic. The skimping of clear parts for the green accents hurt tho
I got some model kits of MegaMan EXE yesterday. They're pretty neat.
>Not that guy. I don't have the Figma, I've got the WoN. But this is /toy/, where playability is the main factor,
>/toy/ is one person
>caring about the source material of somethings you're buying makes you from /v/
Well holy shit Anon. I was hard for me to take OP's notes as the jingle because everybody I know goes "da-na-na-na~" instead.
But now you just canonized OP's tunes as John Cena and I can't get it out of my head when reading it now.
Are you guys expecting/hoping for any new figmas or nendos to be announced at winter wonfes?
A Peach Nendo or Nendoroid Petite collection of Koopalings would be a dream come true.
But what I really hope to see is a prototype of the Figma ZSS
>Captain Falcon Figma
>Fox Figma or Figuarts
>Meta Knight Nendo
>Ness / Lucas Nendo
[spoiler]When's Wonfes happening again?[/spoiler]
When will we get more of these? I just want an army bucket filled with pikmin.
>they give it the generic anime eyes and not the the black dot eyes
Not sure if the sofubi Wario is to scale with the rest. I wish the Jakks one had a bit more articulation.
Jakks just had head, arms and feet that roate, and elbow elbow joints. For some reason it's hard to give Wario knee joints.
The Mario Kart one was kinda weird too.
So to anyone who has the Lucina figma,
Do you plan on getting the Marth Nendoroid?
For some reason I have some weird hangup about it, since I have the Lucina figma, I'd feel weird having a Nendoroid of such a similar character from the same series. I don't know if this is just me being autistic. But I feel weird mixing Nendoroids and Figmas of the same series, unless they are meant to look that way (for example Toon Link)
>ness and lucas nendos
They deserve better, having said that I don't know for sure what would work best for mother characters as far as brands go.
Yes I have the Lucina figma, and yes I plan on getting the Marth nendoroid. It is kind of strange to have figma/nendoroid of characters from the same series displayed together but I personally don't mind it all that much, I could just make a section for Nintendo-related Nendos since I have a shit ton of them ordered. Plus I've been waiting since 2007 for some good FE merchandise
If you want a smash display the megaman d-arts scales better with most figures, there is also the koto model kitbof mega man for a cheaper alternative as the d-arts can be kinda pricey. If you just want a smash nendo group just get the nendos, all I will say is that if you stick to one one brand your display won't be very large. It really depends what you want.
I understand, and I might do the same thing. There are so many Nendos coming out like the 3 slated for this month and then Marth, I could definitely make a shelf just for them and keep Lucina in a shelf with Samus, new Link, and heck even my Persona and Kat figmas. Then when I want to rearrange I can just put all Nintendo together and say fuck it they're different sizes lol. I was a little underwhelmed by the Marth nendo, but who am I kidding, putting all of those Nintendoroids together would look amazing
Mother has moderate popularity in japan, figures aren't that impossible. I imagine ness has the better chance then lucas however as mother 2 is more fondly remembered there as it had a more lighthearted nature and is nostalgic to them. Even then both of them being in smash also helps them quite a bit.
My personal opinion with this is that the Mario and Luigi are best for a Smash display, along with nendos like Toon Link, Sonic, and Kirby coming out. For Megaman, I think it's up to personal preference; a Nendoroid would definitely work and fits better than I think the Mario and Luigi nendoroids would. I had the Koto kit myself. It was nice, but I wasn't very happy with it and it was also very tall. The D-arts is very expensive now so fuck that, for me at least.
I think the best time to release a Mother figure would be during an anniversary. Itoi just held a Mother event last year that had a lot of people attend
It would probably be of Ness, since his game has been out for longer and he's been in every Smash Bros. game so far. (That increases the userbase by a large margin) Give him a cute Mr. Saturn accessory and bam, it's marketable.
As for the brand? Figuarts would work the best. The Mother kids are proportioned kind of like Mario--Too short for Figma, but too tall for Nendo. (I could see Nendos working out though, but I wouldn't prefer them) Also, for the record, Mother was included on a Figuarts survey asking about Nintendo franchises, so it's been considered. Not one of their first choices I bet, but one down the line perhaps.
On a side note, I'm baffled Captain Falcon hasn't gotten anything yet. I know, F-Zero is dead, etc.etc. But I really think it would be a successful figure. If fucking Otaku Internet memes can get figma, so can he-- He's that, but much more.
Thanks, yeah they probably can be
I'm trying to think what figures I'm missing. I don't have figma Link, but I'm getting the new one...I'm debating getting the old one.
I got lucky with Pit, found him on ebay one day for like 70. I'm hoping I find the same for his Dark counterpart
>the nendos look good
L O L
honestly comparing the two is retarded though, if you are going to display them with other nendos, get the nendos. The figuarts will look better with figmas, and have better articulation despite the weird joints.
>Shipping out from GSC on the 27th January 2016:
Good Smile Company - Nendoroid Kirby
>Delayed from January 2016 to April 2016:
Good Smile Company - Nendoroid Link: Majora's Mask 3D Ver.
Hooray for Kirby, but Jesus that is a fucking huge delay for Young Link. Must've been really popular. At least he'll come out with Isabelle.
Looks nice anon, I like how all of them are interacting, I don't know how people can keep their figures in neutral poses. I have to say though the poses of samus and yu are a little off,maybe fix them a bit, very nice collection though.
my point was they fill totally different niches. I own the Nendo and I think it does what it is trying to do better than the figuarts(though I tend not to like nendos with the obvious super-deformed style), but they are trying to do different things. I think the nendo would look great next to other deformed figures but if you are trying to display him with figmas or something I'd still suggest the figuarts.
The problem with the nendos is they typically look weird with otherv figures. The guy said he wanted a smash display so I feel the figurarts would scale better with other figures. Admittedly I don't own any of the mario figuarts so I won't comment on their quality but overall I feel the figurarts would be more appropriate for this guy.
Thank you! Yeah, I wanted to have them all fighting, and the 1v1 approach seemed to work without cluttering too much. Unfortunately it left the spot where Samus v Kat looks a little weird to me... but thanks, I'll definitely be fixing Samus, and Yu I admit looks strange too, I was actually just messing around with him and didn't fix him.
Holy shit thank god, was kinda hoping kirb would get pushed too. January is a killer for my wallet, especially since PAK KHII Riku got pushed earlier to January instead of February.
Eh either ways a plus for me I guess. At least I don't have to worry about link for awhile.
>that Lucina pose
>Those Persona character poses
>Rebuild of Eva Asuka
I'm sorry, but I can't approve of this
Any one of the NGE figures off of mandarake. If you are buying any of the female RoE figures firsthand I will blame you solely for the death of mecha anime by supporting the viewpoint of product > art that allowed Gundam to thrive this long and raped NGE's corpse.
Thanks. Yeah I'm really happy I decided to get the Snake nendo, as he's only going up in price. Thanks, definitely happy with how Pit looks.
Ha, thats fine... I agree the Persona characters look off, but I think Lucina looks fine, maybe a just a little static?
Also, I understand the differences between the Asukas, but I wanted the figma for sure; I'm not as invested in NGE, but I love Asuka, and Goodsmile
I was a little harsh, sorry about that.
>I think Lucina looks fine, maybe a just a little static?
I'd say her arms are too low, but aside from that she doesn't look as bad as I first though. Maybe try to raise her right leg a little to make it look like she's leaping?
Thanks and no problem
Cool, I'll try that with Lucina, I think those tips sounds about right. Also just fixed Kat and Samus and swapped their places which I think looks nicer (Samus is more recognizable from a back/side view). May post something later if I get around to fixing the rest.
Also I understand your problem with Asuka ha
Doubtful but worth asking, do figures of all of these mega men exist?
I know I can use d-arts and nendoroid for X and middle. Any others?
Has anyone had any luck finding these damn things? I can't seem to find a Walgreens that was able to get them and I pretty much called a majority of them in the city. So far I was only able to get White Link thanks to a manager who did an order for me. He said that they were only given three random figures, even though he ordered the box. His store had 0 in stock before so my guess is that Walgreens itself is rationing these figures.
I really do hope these things are timed exclusives.
There are all types of .EXE figures. They're pretty cool. Near impossible to find most of them though.
There are a few for Star Force aswell.
Not my pic, by the way.
Just got back from TRU with a vinyl Jibanyan from Yokai Watch and I've got to say it's 10000 times better than what I Was expecting (something similar to a funko) Not sure if I should put him on the pokemon shelf or if that's blasphemous.
>that one on ebay that was at $800
I just want a volnutt figure.
I agree that figurarts would be best for mother characters, at least in regard to the the children. Maybe it's just me but nendos look hideous, only certain characters like more chibi kirby or jack frost look right in that style. I would kill a man for a mother figurarts line.
The joints are a bit robotic looking, but the face looks great especially compared to Jakk's
Yes, I know anything looks better than Jakks. Point is, I think you're being too dismissive of them.
