Picked up Wolfman tonight at Toys R Us and found dubs man at a flea market.
Let's see yours!
I really need to look into flea markets.
Here's my haul from January so far!
Here's a bunch of toys I bought at Value Village. They came in bags with assorted figures. The only ones I really wanted was Blue eyes, Elite and Angemon but the Raven is cute. Not too sure what some of the others are from though.
picked up the Neca Snake Plissken today, been wanting it for a while and could never find it at my local Toys R Us'. decided today that i'd go to the comic store near my house i've never been to, place was stocked, great shit and i finally found it.
>live in UK
>have to deal with ridiculous taxes and fees when importing figures
>always ask Japanese sellers on Amazon if they're willing to mark undervalue packages or mark them as gifts so I can dodge customs fees
>most say yes because they want my baka gaijin money
>sometimes have trouble understanding each other due to language barrier
>this particular seller is very enthusiastic and wants my business, through his broken English I sort of gauge that he's willing to mark the package as a gift
>order figure from him as he's one of the cheapest options
>a few days later my order is marked as dispatched so I ask if he remembered to mark the package as a gift
>pic related is his response
>probably thinks I wanted a fortune cookie included with my figure or something
Welp, it's too late to cancel my order so fingers crossed it manages to slip through customs.
My most recent purchase was a Figuarts Iron Man Mk.45 which is absolutely amazing, I already had the Revoltech Mk.1 suit so I thought I'd pick up this one, it blows it out of the fucking water by a long shot. Better paint/sculpt/articulation and I got it cheaper.
Even though I just found out Red is getting a sort-of rerelease, I'm really glad I hunted him down on YJ; although thought my wallet took a beating for it. I do think he looks better in Nendo form with the Kanto starters than their evolved forms. Plus I have the D-Arts anyway, so… at least I can let my wallet recoup ;_;
I think it's really shitty of them to release the same figure again with different Pokemon. It's kind of like a 'fuck you' to anyone who bought the original.
They should have made the female PC with the evolved starters.
Actually that would've been pretty neat! Maybe cute starters from another region too. Just for the variety at least. Otherwise it kind of reminds me of the Cynthia doll episode of the Simpsons: same doll but with a new hat!
To be honest, the starters really sold it for me. They look pretty stellar. I'm fine with rereleases too, as long as everything's the same. Otherwise it feels a bit tepid…
I think Leaf with evolved starters would have been enough change for me. They'd probably want to save other starters for other PCs in case they decide to make them in future.
Gold with Cyndaquil/Totodile/Chikoria and Kurt's apricorn pokeballs would be fuckin' sweet.
>buying marvel lego
>buying licensed sets at all
Found this guy at my LCS used. He is in great condition, but doesn't have the horse shoe, which is find because its an odd prob anyway. Got him for only 50 bucks tax included. Pretty happy with the purchase as he is in good condition.
Got my package from hlj (I was very nervous because it was SAL Unregistered).
It came with Figuarts Sakura that I buy as a gift for my friend, and for me WAP! Kamen Rider Wizard Water-style.
Blue would have been a good choice. Or Oak. Or any of the Gym Leaders. Or fuck, a repaint of Red to look more like Ash or something. ANYTHING to avoid offering a 3/4ths of a 4 pack to anyone who didn't get the last one.
My Nozomi arrived this morning.
She's the first Azone i ever bought.
