Read the guide before asking questions.
I could have had her on my shelf by now if Alter wasn't holding out on us with Assuka.
Please just let us know if she'll be delayed Alter
Many of the figs posted in buyfag I think look disgusting, and why anyone would buy any of them completely baffles me. However I would still prefer a wonky Baka case over that trash.
At least plastic butts are (usually) well sculpted and look good. That shit's main attraction is being shiny and the rest looks like the stickers you see an 8 year old put on their DS.
Daisy had pretty wacky quality and bad base. Analbelle is more lewd but kinda lacks them slutty peace signs.
Because I have Kona-chan and Alter's Asuka in the same order on AmiAmi, Kona is not going to ship until Alter either releases Asuka or confirms a delay. I know reading comprehension is lacking here, but come on
ITT:lagdroids mad they'll never have a high quality, high detail phone case of they're waifu.
Hitler did nothing wrong going up tomorrow.
Been to Akiba today. Be it figure shop, doujinshi shop or ufo grabber, there were fucking boats everywhere. And Sonico. Almost every shop had a whole cabinet devoted to her pic related. Much One Piece, but that is to be expected. Anyways my goal was it to find the Revoltech queens blade series. Those are the ones I found:
Haven't bought anything yet.Is the pricing for Ellaine and Nowa justified? Found it pretty hard to get the revoltech via internet so, how bad am I getting ripped off here?
Also, I can give a few shop reccomendations if you want. Mandarake was a god damn dissapointment.
Unlike your phone case, the paint plastic doesn't go obsolete, and if I ever grow tired of it, the value of it increases over time.
Good luck selling a gaudy cover for an out of date phone no one has.
it's easy to be a mikufag or a TMfag, as I'm both, as long as you have standards. Miku and Saber have ton of merchandise but a lot of it is subpar and only some of it is worth having. The only way it'd break your bank is if you tried to collect everything just because it had their face on it
Is there much of a second hand market for figs with missing pieces~? I for example am missing the 2nd bow in the left hand for the fig in the image even though I still have the box.... Would it sell~?
I own one Miku, pic related.
The aesthetics of early 20th century Japan make me hngggggggg
Just other sites. Because of Japanese tax or whatever. I'm not really clear, but apparently they're more expensive now than other sites. This happened a while ago though.
The few sabers I have, Vortigern, Nero/Boobies, and Alter Alter swimsuit, are so good that I don't think any other sabers can tempt me. I can freely ignore most others put out, and wait for a decent wormslut figure to pop up.
The biggest Figure Shop I found was Liberty 8. 3 Floors Figures, one for Gundamn amd such and one dedicated to Keychains. Nice atmosphere and as opposed to many other shops quite a bit space to move. Has a nice balance between newer and older stuff. Lots of second hand. Usually means the box is a bit damaged. Figures are always top notch.
Volks: Nice shop dedicated to Figures. Inventory slightly on the old side, but fair pricing imo.
Loax Hobbx: Loax is actually a big shopping mall. Was full of chinese people buying like crazy. Across the street is the Hobby branch of Loax. I think it is all new stuff in there.
Kamifusen and jungle: Two smaller shops dedicated to figures. Friendly staff, only onw floor but packed with all kinds if plastic.
Ufo catcher: there are several arcades like the big Sega building along the main road. You can win most catcher have boats in them, but there was one with Levi from attack on Titan. Spend 1500 yen and got him. It was then I realized his weapons and gear are in the machine next to it as seperate prize.
Comic Toranoana: Huge 6 floor building with everything manga. First 2 floors are regular manga, followed by clean doujinshi, H Doujinshi, H Doujinshi (Games) and H Doujinshi (anime). Neatly sorted by series. They even had a C86 isle with all new releases. Gonna get me the VHGame Fan Book.
Just got this in the mail.
Dunno what the straps are from, though.
What's the matter, samefag? Never seen RAITA's style before?
Oh I've seen it before. I just wish I hadn't
I've never bought a figure before. Is the lighting just really bad or is the painting really that bad? http://www.jlist.com/product/PRE3624
I like Karen a lot so I want a figure of her, but something looks off and I hope it's just the lighting making it look bad.
Wow, I looked at other figures and they outshine that thing by miles. I didn't bother looking at anything else until now because I don't really want a figure unless it's of Karen. Oh well, I guess.
What do you mean?
Just hold out and hope someone makes a pirate Karen or something.
She looks like she's storing nuts in her cheeks for winter.
Anyone got any experience with the Black Hanekawa from Taito? Found her for $40 inc shipping. I know Taito aibt the greatest, but she looks pretty good imo. Dosn't compare to the other ones but still kinda nice.
Those who ordered the first one, Daisy, how did she turned out? Are you happy with her?
Yes. Most are still very good quality, you wouldn't even know they were preowned if not for the label saying they are if you get B+ or higher rated figures. Even B is fantastic still.
Comic toranoana has you covered. They have a whole floor just for that. Most prominent were the touhou shelves. But there was plenty of other stuff. Got a really cute BlazBlue one today. Kinda makes up for not finding any BB H there.
Do you like building, painting, and completing model kits? Koto.
Do you like figures that are complete without work needed? Riobot.
Do you like the manga colors? Koto.
Do you not mind anime colors? Riobot.
As mentioned before Toranoana has 1+ floors of non-porn doujinshi and other related goods. It is located on the "main" road going through Akihabara (Chuo-dori) next to the Animate shop.
If you're looking for second-hand/older doujins then you can try Mandarake which is essentially across the street from Toranoana behind the Sofmap which faces the road. The porn/non-porn stuff is on the same floor and mixed together though. The K-Books in the Radio Kaikan building right by the JR station carries a lot of second-hand stuff but their prices tend to be a bit high. Being right by the station sort of turns the entire building into a tourist trap so you'll probably want to check prices at other stores before buying stuff there.
There is also a Melonbooks in the basement of the Hirose Entertainment Yard (arcade) right by the Club Sega on the main road. It may be a bit difficult to find your first time there, so just look for the orange HEY - Hirose Entertainment Yard sign and go in there. There should be a staircase on your left immediately after entering the place which will lead you down into the Melonbooks store. They carry a selection similar to Toranoana's (a bit less in terms of volume) but you can sometimes find stuff here that is either sold out or unavailable at other shops. They also carry a fair amount of doujin music. Be warned that there is a ton of porn here too.
If you want to go on a bit of a trip you can get on the Chuo line at Akihabara station and ride it west one stop to Ochanomizu. There you will have to get off and walk basically 10 feet to the opposite side of the platform and wait for the Chuo line (Rapid) which will take you to Nakano after only a few more stops. At Nakano station go out through the north exit and basically walk straight into the Sun Mall shopping area - sort of looks like the Usagiyama shopping arcade place in Tamako Market. At the end you'll reach the Nakano Broadway which has a bunch of random shops.
I'm mad because they'll never make a 2hu jolla other half with Cirno ambiance. I'm sure japan would love that shit. Clip on a new back, it changes your wallpaper and system sounds.
Mouse Unit are the GK circle, not the manufacturer.
That's how it works now you little shit.
Assuka is delayed
Might get lucky on
Ebay.Occasionally people will sell off their collections really cheap. Other online stores would be your best bet. Not a Perth fag but the shops I've been to in Melbourne weren't particularly good.
I just got 3 things (~12000 JPY) off amiami. I never did this before, so I'm confused. It gave me an order number and said the shipping cost will be determined later. How long will I have to wait, and what are the factors its even dealing with? I just want to know what to be expecting and when because I worry a lot about things I'm not familiar with, especially when it comes to money, because I only just got a card and bank account about 3 months ago.
I will be using my paypal linked with my debit card if that means anything.
Relax, dude. They're gonna tally up how much shipping is gonna be. They'll let you know what the total with shipping is gonna be by email. Unless one or two of those items were pre order.
The lute and the feet look great.
My overdue package finally showed up.
And here's my best 25$ ever spent
and "I don't quiet know if I want this anymore" set
It just has Korean subtitle/translation. Everything else is identical to NA/EU/JP boxset release pretty much
I'm hearing about this mythical version, but I haven't seen any
If it's old book, why not try to just get used copy somewhere? (Bookoff and etc comes to mind)
If you don't have access to those, I guess eBook is about the only way. Just remember that you can only use one Amazon account per portable devices (So you can't stack Amazon.jp with Amazon.com account for eBooks) (Of course, PC has none of this restriction)
yeah, remember that some used book that Amazon stocks through Prime program (3rd party sellers) can be shipped out of the Japan.
Some Anon previously showed me how to check if it can be shipped out but I forgot
Totally new to this, read the relevant sections of the guide, which was helpful. I do have a question however. I'd like to pick up a few nendoroids that aren't new (which I realise is a trek). How is YesAsia for this? They are listed as an option CDs, DVDs and books and was wondering if this is not the case for figures.
does mandarake rip people off when people come in and sell their hard earned stuff to them?
Is mandarake have yakuza tendencies
MFC says it's Q-Six. Don't really know them except for pic related.
What? I always pay with paypal before , why would I have to reg credit card now?
They've made some decent figures.
Get your buttholes ready because derek is coming
This is what my October is looking like, what are the chances of any of these getting delayed?
I'm ok with this
Yeah forgot about them. They look decent indeed.
