Read the guide before asking any questions:
Some bootlegs aren't that bad, and others are pretty obvious. The only difference on my bootleg Remi is an extra 3rd ruffle on her dress on the front instead of 2.
I don't think Meiling has a Kourindou outfit, or does she?
>2015 season is over
>2014 season merchandise still getting delayed
I pretty much entirely forgot I even ordered this thing. Plus I know it will be shit anyways.
Never skip leg day
I don't know what's up with the numbers. I haven't even seen S2 of OreImo at that. As I said, I'm just interested because ClariS. Kirino a shit, though.
> Confirmation from my proxy on the chris daki
And now we play the waiting game.
Proxies have a code of honor, they must deliver or they will commit sudoku.
>tfw you have a figure scheduled for release in november and there's still no date or delay confirmation
Does anyone remember the name of that yoko littner figure with the soft chest?
I pre-ordered last fucking year. It has been delayed 9 fucking months. You are telling me that it's no longer coming out this November? Now i am so fucking mad. Fuck fuckidy fuckfuck fuck.
This always scare me. I'm sure one day BiJ will pretend my packaged didn't get to them and sell the figure to someone else.
ClariS is pretty good. I hope they come back together once they are off school. I'd get their official merch instead of bothering with the Imouto spin off merch.
I don't think she does either. But I want my entire Scarlet Devil cast. I am upset I didn't preorder Patchi nendo. I just bought the entire cast two weeks ago.
Nay, mate. If this was early 2010s then yes, but every single scale got re-released. Don't bet your money on Tales figs. Only Muramasa, Dragon Crowns, Dragon 2020, Persona 3, and Neptunia figs resale for stupid prizes.
And all of them got re-released for a reason, the demand was high enough to inflate the prices. And even after the re-release, most of them can be resold for at east their buying price which was >>133819393
Alter has never made a 7th Dragon 2020 figure
>still waiting for payment request for shipping from proxy
Giraffe girl got a recolor, and Miku binned substantially. Hacker and Psychic never inflated in price like giraffe girl.
Yes so? Does that change the fact that they are not by alter?
Since christmas is at the door whats your most wanted figurine "releasing" in December?
I got just Kisshot for December so I guess she wins by default.
My point was that popular vidya figs can resale easily, specially if they were made by Alter.
Dragon 2020 is not made by Alter and did not get an english release, so it's not a popular vidya. The only reason why Samurai girl resells for a lot is because she is a very well made and collectors want her. I'm sure some of us buy really pretty figures even if we haven't experienced the original source or if it's from an illustration only.
Only Samurai Girl is popular. Miku binned, Hacker held her price for some reason, and nobody wants Psychic. I found her for $40 at Amico and I still didn't want it.
Also, please return to twitter.
Dear Anon, thank you for the update. Love, Anon.
P.S. Please enjoy Salem playing the piano.
>I'm new as fuck, literally my first buyfag thread
James buy us something and we will stop bullying you.
Your tripfag VIP card has expired and need to be renewed.
>being this booty bothered by a tripfag
I know he's in here every fucking thread posting with his fucking useless trip posting irrelevant figures just for the sake of posting pictures. Fucking faggot.
Then that fucker should update the guide instead of wasting air.
>posting irrelevant figures just for the sake of posting pictures. Fucking faggot.
>Your samefag detector is broken. Start by buying me a new one.
Not a figure, but I want this asspad.
Most of us are aware of how long James has been here. He is an annoying cunt outside of Buyfag that reposts his own pictures here over and over again. Anyone can filter his trip. I do, and everyone should too.
But you should not credit him for making the guide himself. There were a lot of anons who made it 8 years ago.
The entire point of 4chan is being anonymous and trips are only used when it's absolutely necessary, like with secret santa. He uses it inappropriately every single day.
Anyone here that owns a doll is rich in my eyes.
Now i want them handouts.
>There were a lot of anons who made it 8 years ago
Not sure if you are claiming to be an oldfag or you are going senile but, the guide is not that old, these thread and the guide as we know it were born after 2011. Buyfag generals were only accepted as such in 2012. Prior to that any unboxing was banned .
Anon, come on. Everyone knows Noodles is poor as fuck. He's not as a bad as James at misusing his trip.
I think one of the reasons for doing the Kourindou versions is to "re-release" the older girls while still doing something different.
I doubt they will do Kourindou Marisa since they just did her UFO version and the fact that it isn't much different from her regular outfit.
So this pretty much just leaves Patchy, Aya, Youmu, Yukari, and Tokiko. They could do an all purple PCB Yukari possibly, but I doubt that as well.
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
Internet is rich and used his money to please others. He is not bad, but misuses his trip to get attention after using $5,000 to buy friends on 4chan.
Also, did he die from liver failure or not?
Yes, mate. The guide is old as balls. It's not the .moe that you see today. It started out as paragraph long OP "The Big Three". Back then we fought with unboxingfags, mangofags, actual deaths, and threads were made every 2 days. Then we survived 2 4chan purgues because mods and moot accepted buyfagging. I am honestly surprised we didn't get sent to /generals/.
Based on Swan Lake.
I can't tell if they'll be cast off or if they'll do the ribbon effects. I'm guessing they're a set that will be sold together.
The guide is not that old, the previous copypaste was never used as the base for this new one. It was made from scratch, the only part sightly older than that is the store digest which is still lnked in the guide.
The one you mention started originaly in /jp/ , made by a single guy in pastebin AND around 2010, not 8 years ago.
Either you are making shit up or have shit memory.
>The guide is old as balls
The one we have is not, if you mean the shitty pastebin we had in early 2011 that was scrapped and left to /jp/.
And it's certainly not 8 years old, not even /jp/ is that old
In the early days we all talked about our experiences with shops. Like how to buy something from Amico/Manda when they weren't that foreigner-friendly, and which shops to avoid like hell. That's how the paragraph OP was born. I'm sure we talked along the way. I am glad you are still here. I think you're awesome, anon.
The guide hasn't been updated in a long time. I'll work on it this weekend. Keep a backup in case I fuck up.
That's the thing, Amiami just opened their doors to foreigns in late 2009, their old site was around from 2010 to 2011 which means that was 4 years ago.
Also, as a matter of fact the guide has been updated frequently and recently, just check the changelog
>It started out as paragraph long OP "The Big Three"
The term was coined in 2011, amiami international was known as a big store until 2010, and not even existed before late 2009.
I clearly remember a small paragraph with Amico, Manda, and 1999 in the early buyfag OPs. I do not remember if it came from /jp/ but I do remember the pastebin replacing that paragraph. Then tinyurl, and now the .moe.
If I am talking shit then I apologize, I am currently drunk. Let's carry on and shit on tripfaga.
The paragraph was made AFTER the pastebin.
The tinyurl one was made 4 years ago from scratch.
Then some anon registered the current URL about a year ago, but it´s the same doc as the tinyurl one.
Well the last single was good even without Alice. Sadly I preferred Alice's voice of the two, but oh well.
There isn't that much official merch around however. I already have the albums, two of the Petit Nendo sets and the artbook. What I really want is a promo poster from Anemone as the new artist they've been using recently has gorgeous art. Sadly there's not been any around for a while now.
The new single is out in a couple days and they're using the same artist again so if they have promos for that it'll do nicely. I reckon it'd look really nice alongside the Supercell poster I already have.
This. Now I remember. I been buyfagging for 8 years with random weekly threads every week. Once Amico came in the picture threads picked up.
Thanks, anon. Now I wonder how many oldfags are still around. Excluding the tripfags.
You are making shit up, the big three were HS, HLJ and Amiami, Manda was reated independently.
Also, that screenshot is from the latest haruhi episodes, the original series was only in VGA resolution with hardsubs by a.f.k.
Threads picked up in /a/ after the infamous Rin incident, not particularly because of Amiami going international.
Before that it was the grumpy crew of /jp/ who had them, slow as fuck
Clearly you aren't aware
she was sleeping with old men for money
Jesus people really don't remember what really started the buyfag threads?
/a/ bought up all the GSC UBW Rin figures in one day. We watched as site after site said sold out. And it is all because a certain tripfag here
Got into buyfaging back in 2011.
Post your first figure.
When GSC Rin was first released in 2011 James dumped some photos on a thread and convinced thirtysomething anons buying Rin off different sites, plus the ones who were lurking.
The results were every leftover copy of the big 3, play asia and a couple other sites selling out.
The fun part was actually seeng how the counters of the inventory on every site were going down
So basically a viral spree.
>The fun part was actually seeng how the counters of the inventory on every site were going down
God I miss this the most about amiami.
I hate how they got rid of the counter as that used to be my main influence in me preordering or buying a figure.
Bought it from a shop in the middle of fucking nowhere USA in 2006-2007. It was my only fig for a long time.
>All this talk about the old threads
>Remember next month is Survey time
Dammit this makes it 4 years I've been doing this.
2012 as reference.
I know we still have a month to go but post your 2015 Figure of the Year™ buyfags.
Got it in 2011 as well.
Treated it like shit, lost the rings and side parts, and left it in the dust for 2 years before I started collecting again and treating figures better. It looks much better in person.
Many Sabers later still no regret
If this cutie is released this year she will definitely be up there as one of my favourites.
Is this the best Asuka (Soryu) figure available?
They're foam (I think) inserts in the basic shape of a butt or tits, that you slide under the daki cover to simulate the shape/feel. I'm not sure if they have a sticky backing to stay in place but I'm sure one could be purchased that is safe for the insert and the pillow.
I hate that porkchop gets so much merch despite her not having an anime.
Just wait till she eventually gets one; she'll probably cause more shitposting than umaru and her ilk.
id only ever buy the hambeast if they made it ridiculous like just have her eating a huge deep dish pizza w/ slices flying everywhere or like just eating a massive mound of plastic food
I'm searching the net, but all I can find is a Super Sonico daki with implants included, nothing you can buy separately.
Just ordered my first Nendoroid. Pretty excited
Let justice be done, through the heaven's fall
Felt pretty good to get her for "only" 28k because of a damaged box.
But i don't understand what you have against her balloon tits.
It's part of her design. It's part of herself.
You gotta embrace it, anon.
I wonder if all the food there is for her fat blonde friend
What a qt
Wish I could get her for the laptop
Pretty disappointing for having such great potential.
oh wow the face is actually aids on the enterbrain one.
I wouldn't pay 28k for that.This 1/4 one looks pretty amazing but i have never done a GK before. There's actually so many good quality selvaria figs idk which to choose
>dressing your mom up as anime girls
Superior noodle stopper releasing any day now.
It's more about what comes afterwards.
I know. It's a lot of fun. I haven't done one like this in years. This one is special, so it's a one-time thing.
Did you get the remains of a wacked figure?
cool, looks like my debit card went through on mandarake. hope my secret santee enjoys orc porn.
J-lists ads are pretty fucking amazing - and for some reason they get by my adblock's default settings. Basically every time I go on Nyaa I'm considering picking up a new dolphin polisher.
you tried your best to make it as bad as possible, didn't you?
For what purpose
Not really my thing, too much /v/. That gunbuster figure is sweet though.
stuff like the sloppy stitching on a misaligned tab on pic related doesn't befit a nice coat desu wa yo
>that Ikki Tousen bitch in sarashi
>that one BRS scale
>that one pretty Yoko
>a bunch of shitty Revys but it's still Revy
I'd say it's fine but I have shit taste
Usually you need to start the claim the very moment you get the package, which means either at the post office while picking it or tell the postman that you won't be accepting the package until he signs the insurance claim, which they should have at hand.
i'll tell your mailman to rip every one of your figure's box into as many pieces as possible, but leave the figure untouched in its plastic cage, and see how you feel about that
Why are people so autistic about boxes anyways? Once they've been opened who cares so long as they hold the actual figure properly? I think most people are like me and are only anal about boxes because of the fear that other people might care if/when we sell our figs.
I don't think you've ever had a box worth displaying.
>mfw someone gifted me giraffe girl for my birthday in 2013
thank you based scot I barely know
where did you buy those?? I need to know, my female figures will thank you
I'm not sure I want to laugh or cry.
>still better than Porkchop
Why does Manda want to charge me 1580 yen SAL shipping on these tiny clear posters?
You are retarded, that's legal.
If the package was insured for less than the actual worth then he will only get the insured amount, no more.
Also, if japanpost does not deem as complete and utterly damaged and lost they can just refund a percentage of the total.
2you4 finally got what they deserved
ignoring my instructions, my complaints and the fact they ruined one of my figures.
They ignored the PayPal dispute, as well,
lulzy if you ask me,
and I got a 9.000 Yen refund.
It took 10 weeks for this matter to be resolved, although PayPal was pretty quick about it.
I gave 2you4 all the chances to address the matter, from beginning to the end, but I received no explanation or even an apology.
Mind you, I only took it to PayPal after almost two months of waiting and emailing them.
Jumping the gun never helped anybody.
Just mean to let you know that if 2you4 fucks up you have a good chance of getting back at them without excessive effort, no matter what their legally irrelevant TOS say.
Are you daft?
While you have a point in that it is your own problem if insurance doesn't cover the whole package, they generally still have to give you an actual refund - in money - like they received.
Not some frigging AmiAmi points.
Unless they revoke the purchase of the whole item, by doing what I said.
The insurance is given to the sender of the package you know, and paypal's refunds are made in full, no partial. If they gave you money back it would be a charge back, then a new invoice for the total.
So, you, the customer, are not the one covered by that damage, the sender is and he is free to give you your money as they deem fit.
You know jackshit about legality.
It was a candy resin figure, so I explicitly asked them twice (including in the request form) to not put it in a vulnerable position as well as consider some extra padding.
What did they do?
Threw it without padding into a bottom corner of the box.
The outcome I think I need not mention.
Consideirng ther transfer was of 8 figures they had ample chance to put other figures boxes under and around it.
Basically they did the exact opposite of what I asked them to do.
Had there been no damage, regardless of them ignoring my instructions, I would have been fine with it, but this situation left me no choice but to blame them for the fuckup.
regrettablebonus I also got a 70% refund from the Amazon marketplace seller, although this almost certainly wasn't his fault. I actually turned a profit in the end.
That would only be true in the case the amiami point held monetary value, which they do not.
And they could just send the fucking money to you retard, they don't have to issue a refund on the original transaction
Well seems like it all turned out well for you in the end.
Personally I'd still want the figure though, did you end up getting another one?
I've only used 2you4 once and it was for a cd so I had no issue with them.
If you are not aware any method of sending money via electronic transfer from japan has an added tax, for example if they sent the money via CC they would be charged for a foreign transaction, or he would be charged if amiami sent the money to his paypal account.
No, there is no option to send it as personal payment from outgoing transfer from nipland.
Maybe you misunderstood
Monetary value as in able to be used in place of currency
A good comparison would be getting, instead of a paycheck, mcdonalds gift cards. Yes, they represent money in the situation of you ordering from mcdonalds, but hold no monetary value
Sure, I also got the figure, although not a new one.
It's quite rare and from 2012.
I still have not opened the packaging because I am not sure what to do with it.
The damage might 'just' be an arm that broke off, although I will only know for sure once I open it.
I have considered selling it sealed as is
and scamming people with a no warranty private sale, although it's quite obscure and I'm not sure it would fetch a good price.
You are aware the refund they get from Japan post is not monetary by that definition right? They give you a voucher valid for a service of the insured amount for future shipments
I was not aware, but I am under the impression that that would just be taken as loss for the customer in that situation
Of course japan's regulations on this might vary, but I can't imagine they can issue refunds with no monetary value unless both parties consent
That makes sence, but wouldn't that be because it is through an account they have with the carrier as businesses like that do? In situations of a non business exchange, would the insurance be paid directly to the mailer, or would they also receive that same voucher?
That depends on the country and the amount to be refunded, you can actually get the money back in postal stamps and resell them in the counter to get physical money, but there's no way to get that money as a refund directly unless you have paid the insurance prime , which would mean insuring a 20k+ EMS package by paying a small percentage and even then, the refund process can take months.
Will Chaika ever get her proper scale?
Oh no way. There are more questions I have about this but it looks like Google will be my friend tonight
Thank you for for clearing that up!
Can i talk about figures from shonen shows here or is this just for waifu figures?
thank you anon,
I love you
have a kaijuu booty in return
>relevant to what I was asking
Clearly reading comprehension isn't yours, is it?
Paid more than I wanted to but I finally got her I can scratch one more off the hit list
I also got her prize figure for pretty cheap. I wish she had more merch, I'd buy it in an instant.
Alter's come a long way since 2011. Still a good figure, but I was comparing this to some of their more recent work and, just damn.
Alter altered their process and got much better.
I wish I could get Nelliel but fuck she's too steep for me at least at the moment maybe next year
Remilia finally came in. Was starting to worry that I wouldn't get her until next year.
Would /a/ hate me if I bought two dakis with two different girls on them?
It looks like Chaika has a dick in the thumbnail.
I didn't got many this year, so I'll pick this one.
The face is just not photogenic, but the whole thing is very top notch in person, I can testify that. I think the final product's face is much better than this >>133827041 prototype
Can someone please explain to me the appeal of this figure?
