Read the guide before asking any questions
I meant that it costs 29€ if you want to use it.
Some anon a few threads ago said that he didn't have to pay even though he sent them his documents and they sent him his package. So just posting this for him.
sell the old one and get the superior ver
money is not the problem desu
as much as i like shamsiel i don't like her gaiden looks
plus i actually played the games and would kill for a gladys fig
>tfw gladys never
I must say her face looks way better than in the promo-shots.
The panty over the pantyhose is pretty retarded but i would display her with her skirt anyway.
I'm just wondering if her show is worth checking out to get familiar with her?

Are we gonna go over this again? The only pieces of shit that go MUH SOURCE MATERIAL are the ones that buy griffon and beach queens
Well I think of it like this, the source material that /a/ usually agrees is good almost never gets figures. So you have to settle for BQs and such. I probably wouldnt get a BQ if it even was my waifu.
you are so so wrong anon.
thanks for reminding me

So many of you tell anons to not give a fuck what people think of their hobby and what they do. But yet many bitch and complain about others taste, and will put down anons for what they like. It's hilarious.
the only way this half a ship could have a decent figure and avoid rolls/ cellulite is to do some serious exercise and gain muscle beneath the fat.
i think reddit would be a better place for you anon.
Tell that to the /toy/ or /jp/ crossboarders who always respond with "hurr poorfags"
whenever they were told to go back to their shithole.
Yes, and you only have til the 29th. I'm just thankful as fuck that it isn't yet another terrorized with fear daki. Slight nervousness is okay but I can't stand mousepads or dakis where they look like someone's about to stab them to death. I want to love the waifu not kill her.
>I want to love the waifu not kill her.
That's what you mind says, but not your heart. She can practically taste the corruption pouring out your soul
Saberfag here, was gonna bitch at you for miku not being on the list but you remedied it, thanks.
He was never going to be. Mikazuki has twice the amount of detail and more colors. Face aside I don't think he looks as good as the rest either. The outfit's design feels lacking when compared to the layers of clothes and accessories the others have.
I'm just glad the paint is his biggest issue and not the face like it is with the other two.
Anons, what do you do when no more merch is being made for your waifu?
Even if you paid me I wouldn't display it.
Presale started on tickets for Miku Expo about an hour ago. I don't quite understand the Live Nation password thing, because I just googled it and found it, and I can buy tickets right now.
Except it says no VIP tickets are available (at least for the shows in New York), which would be quite disappointing if they're already gone after an hour of presale. Unless they aren't available until the normal sale time tomorrow. Anyone remember what it was like last year?
I also notice the VIP tickets on ticketmaster for New York say "VIP Opera Boxes," so I'm wondering if they're not just doors open early, you get to try to stand closer to the stage this time - but I think I'd rather be on the floor as close as possible then off to the side. I'd risk being behind tall people again though.
That's what it was last year, but they haven't said anything specific, right? I just notice that on Ticketmaster it says "VIP Opera Boxes," so I was wondering if they changed it, unless it said the same thing last year.
I think the VIP Opera Boxes is something different. Last year they had a lot of VIP and I assume they will do the same this year cause the venue is the same. The amount they had would be too much for the Opera Boxes.
>not offering to share with your family
Step your game up.
Is Paypal Credit system shady? Paying by monthly sounds nice.
>Not being american
But I am, at least until trump strips me of my birth certificate.
So I am trying to figure out what to give my friend for Christmas. He already impulse buys everything he likes from amiami so he has all the figures he likes, has probably over 30+ dakis, and a ton of tengas. Basically he does have a lot money already and has a ton of stuff already.
Possibly thinking of getting him one of these mousepads. Got a few left at work but not completely sure if I can get one as there may be a need for them in the future.
Any other ideas on gift options? Last year a friend got him art cells from the Madoka Rebellion movie which he loved.
As much as I joke about no symphogear merch, there's been quite a few things put out after GX. Most of them are shitty copypasted official art printed on to useless junk but they're trying. Never give up hope.
It is a giant novelty item more than anything. Coworker had one of them on her desk and said is was funny but totally impractical. The boobs are pretty comfy and she said she once took a nap on them.
>tfw your grail suddenly shot up in price a day before your paycheck
I think you mean wing, and those are kinda hard to get
it's hard and it hurts, especially now that bikkie and Chris got dakis, but I'll endure it for her
just like life in general ;_;
Apparently DHL sends you a seperate payment request for their service.
Posted last week how i only had to pay the regular fees for my package.
Seems like they didn't forget it.
My guess is that they intend to incentivize customers to apply pressure to the shops to properly declare packages so they can handle it at the door, without nachverzollung.
Undervalued SAL and airmail packages get through 90% of the time. If anything, this is making more people undervalue.
Though they catch quite a lot SAL parcel packages so that's a problem.
Except it doesn't matter if the package is properly declared or not.
If the dhl employe at the respective depot is too lazy to request a custom check they simply state it wasn't declared properly and you have to pick it up at your local office.
I don't expect people to know but how do they check the values of the items? I guess they could look on the store's sight but that seems to obvious that they'd do it for every buyfag parcel.
I don't think they check. If there's no invoice on the outside, or the shipping price is not stated, or they're just stupid, they ask you to come there and show the invoice
If the value is low enough, they don't bother with it. But if it's sent with EMS/SAL parcel they suspect that it might be worth more than what's stated and ask you to show the invoice.
There was a dude on /v/ earlier who had this, im considering buying. Dunno if you're here or not but I have a question. What's the fabric like? The amazon page says "peach skin fabric." Is that some kind of improved polyester?
>Momohime and Black Gold Saw
Very good, mate. Excellent taste
To add to this, I've read the buyfag guide and found the product on amiami and amazon, the one on amiami says tricot, and amazon says peachskin. Does that mean the amazon one is a knockoff?
Thanks. I've checked around and it seems to be sold out everywhere. Regardless I'd probably go with the bootleg regardless since it's only $20 and the official one is more like $110.
Does anyone here have both a peachskin and a tricot? Is the peachskin noticeably worse, or just different?
2way tricot is so much better its not even funny. I have both materials, and Peach skin feels like a shower curtain in comparisson to 2way smoothness. Always get 2way. Always.
Awesome I'm none of those!
I ignored you for that long in hopes that you would stop posting, but waited in total suspense to see the result, and you fucking got both? Fuck you. Kill yourself asap.
It literally is, prove me wrong.
>inb4 i have a spiritual connection to this anime girl
>What do you want me to proof
I'm not sure if you are capable of proving anything with your low IQ.
>Please kill your self
It's like you're all retarded autists or something.
>Calling that a typo.
The way you spelled special was a typo.
I can tell you're probably the type of retard to say should of.
>- Due to overwhelming unauthorized usage, customers from the following countries and regions will be restricted to PayPal payment only.
>VIET NAM, MEXICO, INDONESIA, PERU and the following states from USA; California, Florida, Oregon, Texas, Illinois, Nevada and New Jersey (Credit Card Payment is available for other States in USA).
sorry no more fap material for james
>It's not my first language, pls no bully.
>Making excuses now.
>- Repeating customers (including the above area), with adequate Credit Card payment record USER ID, will be able to order and pay as usual with Credit Card/PayPal
To spell it out for you retards, if you're a long-time customers from those blocked regions you'll still be able to buy with credit card as normal.
At least I have one. What's yout excuse being wrong?
Put your trip back on juan janet jameson
akarin we know its you
>canada is not affected because nobody from canada have balls to import anything
Maybe I asked because I'm not part of those stats faggot.
Bet's on how low price will be by the time payment is needed.
Credit Card foreign transaction fees are 3% (which is just barely higher than paypal currency conversion difference) unless you have a no foreign transaction fee CC. It will also depend on if your CC has any spend rewards. If you have 1-2% Cash back it's probably worth it to use CC even if you have foreign transaction fee.
Best scenario is no foreign transaction fee Visa with cash back rewards.
This is the shittiest nendoroid of all time. If it wasn't with the BD it would be like 2.5k.
JewSC is getting worse and worse.
She's definitely one of my favorites.
The best Nendos are characters you like, with the exception of the really old ones. Modern Nendos all pretty much match in quality. They're great for what they are, SD, jointed figures.
They're great for how ridiculously cheap they all are
Animaru Exclusive ver.
I like it a lot more, Sonya's reaction feels much more accurate
Which idol from this line has the least QC issues? All the pictures I've seen from this Miki look like shit.
I like all 13 of them so I'm not picky about which one I'm getting.
I'm trying to make a light box for figures.
Do you guys have a suggestion for what kind of bulbs and lamps I need?
Some figure photography examples show 4 bulbs to get the best picture, but having 3 lamps gets really hectic and I'm not a professional photographer and these things take up space. Any suggestions?
Damn right I did, double the fun.
Who the hell buy stuff like this?
This can't go just as some joke gift.
Yui and chinachu will be the last yryr I buy.
The jews need to stop.
I was shooting from below. It doesn't really block anything for me.
I think jewsc didn't pull it off as well as they did with alice.
>that feel when bought delicious waifu abs for my birthday
I'm so excited to get her.
Gentlemen of refined taste, who like to enjoy a glass of wine with their classy centaur waifu.
Actually kind of tempted, although I'd know in my heart that it's not actually her body.
The pre-sale is for regular tickets, same as last year.
VIP tickets are $150 per person. The price is higher than last year's show.
Right here faget.
>Sonico delivering pastries to porkchop
>non existant abs
These are abs
Just get a cheap lightbox from Amazon and cool white bulbs. It's $25 tops.
lightboxes are only good if you got some nicely patterned background. white is boring as fuck.
just arrange some scene behind a table wherever. you can stay being a sleazy hoarder, all you need is to clean up/decorate one tiny corner your camera will be pointing at.
As for light: Daylight generally is good, but incandescent is fine too if you have a tripod and can crank up exposure times.
>tfw you have all these figmas after collecting for years
>tfw you feel uninspired and can't be bothered to pose them in any cool way
>just leave them in my figure case and never play with them even though their poses are currently so
Get yourself a tripod and learn to shoot with a stopped-down f-stop. You can do a lot more toward getting sharp pictures by shooting at 200 ISO, f/14 and 1/5s than by spending the extra money on L glass.
The L glass will give you even better pictures. That camera/lens combination is a very good set up for general photography too. I used to have a 5D2 and 100mmL macro (and some other lenses) but had to sell them when I went into grad school. I still regret doing that.
Tripod and ballhead are ready to go. With the usual lighting setup I use, I'm shooting 1/4s, f/16, at ISO 100 on a 24-70 II @ 70 as my baseline. T-stop on the 100L should be close enough to the 24-70 II to not warrant changing exposure, until I start losing light at larger magnifications from the Bellows effect.
I got it not primarily for sharpness, but for a tighter shot without needing to crop.
Light boxes are overrated.
Good if you have a website that sells things and need to picture items in objective light. They don't really lend themselves to art, though.
saber 10th came today, very MEHHHH figure. can't see myself displaying this for very long. wouldn't have minded paying like $50 more for a nicer figure.
Not in the slightest. Pictures on 2chan look great and it's a fun way to archive your hobby. Most of the pics on here look like pure shit. I don't even click on half of the pictures on here, including the one you just posted.
I had a Miku Expo dump last week, it is definately worth it. Check the archives. The VIP goodies are pure shit, the entire point is to see the Miku hologram up close.
I paid a little extra to try out Tokyo Otaku Mode. It's probably worth it if you're buying just one figure. 2+ I'd definitely recommend amiami since even with EMS you'd get it around the same time and for cheaper.
You can stay on the VIP floor with the smelly people, aho. Seating for LIFE.
Never forget and forgive NYC's concert last year.
>You're waifu will never get a figure that does her justice
At least we got pic related, but it's just not the same.
We're talking about an exclusive. So, no.
I went to Miku Expo LA. I just bought a bunch of goods and went home. I don't see why people would pay $150 to see an emotionless hologram.
You have a huge elitist complex, mate. People must like you a whole lot.
Also, figure collecting is huge in Japan, since everything comes from there. I wouldn't be surprised if figure makers post their own pictures in 2chan or 2ch with their expensive camera equipment.
Please stop capitalising the last word of your sentece. It's makes you sound like a retarded child.
It's like you already hit your senile years, anon. Try to enjoy life more. You are only young for so long, you will regret many things when you get older.
>Cutie Honey finally gets a figure
>It's by Orca Toys
I am not as savvy as the lot of you, but is Orca Toys a good brand, or are they Griffon tier? If I drop all that money I want it to look like the promo shots.
There was a camera thread a while back where they posted their setups. Your assumption is wrong. GSC and Amiami have posted their setups and they're about 20x more expensive than anything seen on 2chan.
Amiami's setup is barely above 1kUSD
GSC and Mikatan use simple DSLRSs, the setup as a whole is not even a grand as well.
In 2chan there is a guy sporting 50kUSD in gear during wonfes, which is the same dude who ran the Nitroyss blog for a while.
While I know most of the usual guys at futaba has similar priced gear than GSC and amiami AND both of them are far from expensive, you are full of bullshit
Not that great but definitely not Griffon tier
pics inside a lightbox are really plain, but you can do some really nice light plays with it
>wanting to see a hologram is "truly living"
Gimme a break. I saw Scandal, Aoi Eiru, Baby Metal, and Momoiro twice in the past year. When I paid for VIP, I actually got to meet the artist and got stuff signed and a picture. Not wanting to pay $150 for some junk and opportunity to watch a movie is normal
they do sculpt some really nice butts
You aren't truly living if you don't enjoy all the same things as me in the exact same way. You will grow up to regret having different opinions on the value of certain experiences.
Forgot to mention, most of the time is not GSC themselves who take pic of their best selling figures, there are better guys who do the job for cheap and just want some extra shots for themselves, like the guy running figuephoto. And his setup is not cheap at all.
if was already stiff when I found him, not a nice sight, I found a couple of old pics of him.
First off, it's Kahotan now so you probably don't know shit. She also posted the camera she uses now compared to the cheap point and shoot and dslr that mikatan was using. Check the backlog, it's not a simple dslr. She also has a steady cam harness. But GSC uses a fucking huge lens for the professional photos. So does Amiami. Check the backlogs. I'm too lazy to find it.
There was one guy with a ton of gear (50k is just an exaggeration), but the majority of regulars that post every week are people with normal setups that don't exceed 4k. Which is what this conversation is about. 2chan is not made of mostly professional people. Normal people with affordable setups are taking nice quality photos.
that was because I took and freed the bird he caught in that moment.
What do you guys think about Thai Miku? I personally seem to find something off but I'm not sure what
