Read the guide before asking any questions
Dolls are often like that, but I can't help but feel like you're buying a dollfie dressed like a character rather than dollfie being a doll of that character.
Actually, I think that the face of the new one looks better, but yeah,,,, opinions
Will Takane be made in the Dollfie Sister line or it will be a normal Dollfie Dream?
Caught me off guard and I laughed, fuck you.
>Salty because no ones using his thread.
>not the highest form of buyfagging
this is a buyfag thread, not a poorfag thread
She's gorgeous, what a captivating expression.
>tfw got my miku dd one year ago and still haven't gotten myself to unboxed her.
>N-Y:Over 17000 yen + 4000-5000 shipping.
FUCK THAT SHIT
There is absolutely no reason for this figures shipping to cost this much.I'm curious to see shipping prices for other countries.I live in the US.
Native shipping is much cheaper(2000 yen).
Does Native shop charge credit/debit cards right away? Or is it like GSC shop and put a 1 Dollar authorization hold on your account?
>Exclusive to Hobby Stock
Well, not like I can afford one right now.
Just finished buying from Natives shop.Its much much cheaper.18500 YEN with EMS shipping included.
They charge your card 8 cents for Authorization.
I know many avoid EMS because of customs,so go with BIJ(they charge right away).Use N-Y as a last resort for this.No reason to pay extra 30 bucks.
Thanks, was just about to ask the same question.
Lol what. Guess they reused this tracking number too soon for japan post to get rid of the past records. It's for my 1/4 miku which was only shipped yesterday.
got this yesterday, probably the best I had this year.
Are Amiami pre-owned Item:B/Box:B a risk for damaged parts or are they generally safe like mandarake pre-owneds? The line "minor wear or damage" is what has me worried, what is minor damage/wear to them?
Well I damaged mine doing this so I have to infinity display them as I currently do, but if your down for the suggestion
I used an old computer monitor as a backlight by taking off the front piece of glass. It's really easy to do and if you have an old monitor lying around to do it with, it looks pretty cool. I would try to figure out a way to not damage it before hand, but if you only display them like that and rotate them around, it looks pretty cool and clean
Nanoha figures always bin don't they? They bin similar to how Strike Witches figures bin except not as hard. I am basing this statement on the several low priced Nanoha figure I saw on amazon.co.jp and I am probably wrong.
I got the same shipping but with two other touhou plushies. Wonder what her regular shipping is
the face looks better than the original picture
I have all my friends on 4chan to blog to
this doll is only 2800 bucks at craiglist
Get some big friends together and steal it then. I doubt someone who owns a doll that cute will be able to fight off a group of strong dudes.
If he cares about it so little that he's selling it, he doesn't deserve it in the first place. You don't sell your doll daughterus.
We did. 6 years ago. They appear every 4-6 months like clockwork.
No, doll posting has always been shunned in buyfag threads. You guys can go to /jp/ to post your dolls. Do not start the OP with dolls again. The thread is too far along to bother shitposting this thread to death.
The opposite, my friend. Dolls bring out the worst of people. Just wait until the Americans wake up.
Why would I spend that much when for only $3100 I can get one that isn't used?
>tfw everyones order gets shipped and i still have to wait atleast another week.
oh you bastard! nabbed that momohime last night!. It's ok though, managed to snag the tharja that just went up.
Ah i suppose i should've said got it about 3 hours back. Preowned on ami updates at about 12am pacific, yeah?
dolls are disgusting and autistic. They look nothing like the characters and look more 3d than 2d. /jp/ has a thread for disgusting people like you, how stop posting this shit.
>They look nothing like the characters
I don't know...
Doll Saber always looked pretty good (which it better for $800).
>see OP pic
>thought it was a Takane thread
I just got the shipping notification
my dick is ready
>mfw AmiAmi shipped out Utaha
>mfw she will arrive before all the shitters clog up the postal service on nigra friday
What are some good auction sites to find doujinshi?
The guide only lists online stores in the doujinshi section, and discusses figurines in the auction section which I'm not interested in.
Finally got my Rin. She is flawless, I can't wait for Nico.
>Several doujinshi orders in limbo via Mandarake credit card embargo
>Finally resumes credit card payments today
>except for my state due to identity thieves
>paypal debit doesn't work
>realize firefox was being retarded
>tried with bank debit through IE
These little things...
>have to wait a day to get money so I can order stuff for Christmas from Amiami
>during that time, the item went to back-order
Fuck. I really need that, but I don't know if I want to take a risk if it doesn't arrive for Christmas
generic doll face. if you mixed up a dozen scales of char you knew. youd be able to tell faces apart easily. if you mixed up a dozen nendoroids, you could probably identify most of them. with dolls there is no difference. they just have same face and different eye color. and however you want to do the makeup.
at this point you may as well buy a cosplay and a mannequin. its probably cheaper too. the only reason to like dolls is if you like dolls in general. i dont think anyone with an eye for art would say dolls are a good representation of their character. waifu fags can skip dolls very easily.
Wow, I certainly didn't see that coming.
How do you like this one?
It has been the most popular SD16 type doll since it was out in Japan though.
Eyes and bottom of cheeks are what's getting me. I don't really like the hair either
>it's the eyes.
A little too big for the head size and the other face parts?
And this is a short haired one.
Just opened and setup my mattress and mine looks like she has her head tilting a little to her right and she's not looking straight on but slightly down unlike in the promo shots.
It times like these that I wish I knew what I was doing with a camera because I feel like I'm going crazy scrutinizing this thing. I don't even know if Aniplex would do anything about it and I used a proxy to buy it from their Japanese site to boot.
Ryu Ji Hye, just some korean slut.
they're not anime-style, that's the problem. they look like someone stuck human eyeballs into a doll.
Honestly isn't this one of the most wanted figures out there?
I'm kind of over her at this point. Not that I wouldn't buy a re-release if she got one.
I'm definitely not over Kino. Day one PO if by some miracle she was re-released.
That EMS shipping. Will be Signum tier rape.
I have bad internet, it just keeps giving me loading errors. If I can't get one I'm kind of tempted to go to NYC that day anyway if anons want to meet up and go to book-off or something.
How old is she? I saw some kids with their parents at the concert last year, I felt bad for them for having to stand up for a couple hours straight - my legs were killing me when I turned around to walk outta there.
Ok, I was finally able to get a VIP ticket.
I'm going with my mom to NYC next month, I feel kind of awkward about having to pull her around to the japanese stores but she was annoyed the last time I went to the city alone.
Reporting, it's not that big a deal. You get inside, everyone stands around waiting, then the lights go out and the music's real loud and no one's gonna notice something like that anyway. It'll be fine.
I'm thinking about convincing a relative to split a hotel room or something, I don't want to take a train back to Connecticut that late at night.
What do you mean? I've never been to a Vocaloid concert before, I want to experience seeing a virtual idol live before I an hero. We've finally made it into the future.
> I've never been to a Vocaloid concert before, I want to experience seeing a virtual idol live before I an hero
... sorry anon this made me regret what i said
i just meant even though im a loser im glad that im not into going to concerts
>tfw I still have no idea where to display her
Ticketmaster has a resell feature, they probably screw you on money but I don't know the details. You can also try Stubhub. I'd imagine you'd be able to get rid of them depending on how you priced them.
I got my VIP packet, but fuckng jews just added a fucking Service Charge of $21 for no fucking reason; I remember last year they did the same, but back then I bought a regular ticket close to the front.
The total for the VIP ticket, just in case someone wondered, was $176.00, which is fine, I had tons of fun last year when I was in T row.
I won't count on it, last year at the LA show, the VIP bag was SHIT: I believe it was a fucking pamphlet, the cd, a fucking fan, and the badge.
The whole purpose of the VIP ticket is to be upfront, the VIP bag is just added garbage.
>Bought this item B/B off AmiAmi thinking it was the original version. I couldn't find any defects or damage so it's more like a A-/B
did you even read the website? im sure they would say it wasn't the original
Miku EXPO is at full hype!
Fuck TicketMaster. $150 for VIP, then $20 Service Fee, and $2 Transaction fees.
Last year's show was horribly rushed. The Lady Gaga concert showed how many Miku fans were in America and Crypton wanted to milk that. They only had 2 shit tastic shows ready in a 4 month window. I am highly surprised they were able to provide "goodie" bags in such a short time.
This time they have a bigger window and more shows in America, Mexico and Canada. Hopefully the goodie bag will be better.
The price of the record dropped a lot but you may be able to get some money off of it now. Right after the concert people who missed it were scrambling for the exclusive items so I think that's why a lot of things sold at a high price but then dropped once the market was flooded.
Would the VIP Loge be better than the main floor / pit in this case, for all the people who went to former Miku Expos?
You're right. I'll try and resell the closer to the Miku expo next year. The vinyl goes for $100 on ebay right now.
Any show would do Miku some good in the states. I am very happy she is getting an actual tour now.
The only way to enjoy the hologram is up close. Try and get the VIP floor tickets. Trust me, the quality drops with the distance. Also, you will see all the jap bros in the front.
You asked if there were more places that sell preowned other than Amico and Manda. It may not be what you would like to have read, but you got your answers after reading the guide.
You are welcome.
Also, try Amazon, ebay, or Yahoo Auctions Japan if you want even more preowned options.
I only have Nemesis from FuRyu but she's pretty nice for a prize figure. This could bee good.
I asked for suggested sites that sell preowned like new, not just preowned. Amiami sells ones that come just like new while Solaris Japan for example is noticeable. Amazon and Ebay contain risks and depend on the seller when it comes to preowned, I was hoping for sites that actually check the product to see it is perfect like AmiAmi and Mandarake.
Are these two the only ones that do that?
So I see a lot of US and canadafags going to the concerts, but where are my cheap labor brown skinned bros from the south border?
Does this indicate that Velvet is going up for order on the 25th? That's what I'm getting from it, but my Japanese is awful.
Have fun waiting for ages before you know if you've got something though. I just ordered a poster from them and it took them 9 days to confirm my order. It's not even a holiday period.
Speaking of suruga-ya, a preowned figure from there just came in. The box had some damage, but it wasn't even opened before.
Thank you, I'll look into it.
Mine were on display away from sunlight or a heat source. They are over 5 years old. I saw figures that were under direct sunlight and the yellowing is different, it's more like a sunburn and only affects the area that was exposed.
I'm putting together Black Heart right now.
Fuck wing #10. I heard a snapping noise after applying more pressure than usual, freaked out, wormed it out a little and realized that was just the snap of the piece actually going into place.
Gave me a fucking heart attack.
Can you make a good bunch of money out of this?
will you pre-order her?
On a mission to collect all miku nendos.
Wish my luck fellow buy fags
If you are willing to play the FREEing qc lottery and like the yukata over the MF lewd/wedding dress design or already have that one I'd said yes.
Hair looks a bit lighter and the sash is more purplish irl, I should have used natural lightning for that picture.
chihaya lewdness can't be measured
pic don't related
After this thread or two is the Vocaloid discussion going to move into /jp/ for any meet-up planning and related stuff? Since there's going to be a few months until the show it'd be easy to keep everything in one spot and they have a general.
>Honestly, I can't believe you buy so many toys anon-kun!
>You're wasting your allowance on plastic!
>Oh is this some fancy blush brush?
>maybe ill let you hotdog me while wearing those jeans you eye so much dear.
They're not buying it to jack off to it the moment it arrives.
They think buying it is a good idea because their penis is telling them it is. Making decisions based on your penis is not always the smartest thing.
I know man but that day I was just horny , I had fapped 2 times already and I was still rock hard so I thought maybe if I browse for a bit my mind will go elsewhere , man I fucked up.
Anon when your horny and have an erection your blood flows into your penis and you can't think straight this is the first time I have ordered a figure while horny I usually know better than that.
There really is no way that VIP tickets are going to be available again, right?
If they are sold out, it's safe to assume it isn't because someone is doing that "hold" shit right? Kinda bummed that I didn't get em. They sold out so fast, unlike last year.
How many figures do you own?
How many of those same figures do you regret purchasing?
Either it's a character I like and the figure's shit, the figure's great but it's a character I don't give a shit about, or it's way too expensive.
Also that image is unadulterated autism and I hate it.
ugh, I can imagine cleaning the buildup off that would be annoying. Otherwise Miku gonna go green themed. I mean sure the catfish probably gonna eat that shit up as well, but not enough of it I would think.
I see NY is doing their fake VIP section again so seating this time.
I had to pay way too much for this.
If you give those scum at jlist your money you're cancer.
there's not much else in there, just a spongebob house and some crappy fake plants
This is the first time EMS took so long to dispatch
wtf are they even doing?
It took so long cause they had to
fill the entire box
It's going to be fun but the smallest venue I've been to was the Orpheum other than that arenas and stadiums. The other venues she's going to look so much better.
