Read the guide before asking questions.
They made a couple standing scales.
looking forward to see those two painted
It's done buyfriends!
Now i just need to paint my bed
I actualy just save the file again at the same size so it compresses it to a normal jpg size. Since i use the fine compression on my camera it comes out at about 8mb each.
Does anyone know of a good candidate for a pillow fill for a 160x50cm 2WT case?
I tried getting a 30% down, 70% feather fill one from the royalpillow shop linked in the guide but it's too short (closest size is only about 154cm).
Not to mention, I've been stabbed by feathers so many times, I probably should've went with something like pic related for the cover since that would at least be more fitting.
I was considering a COSPA on AmiAmi but that would probably only work for a 150x50cm cover.
Any advice, /buyfag/?
other than not being a bootleg case-buying jew
just buy something that is close to 160x50cm and than wrap it in 1-2 blankets of the kind that you think seems fit, that improves weight and general sturdiness/stability. then put it in your casing
>Since i use the fine compression on my camera it comes out at about 8mb each.
Why not just use RAW and export to 2MB JPEG or something?
These shots don't really look good.
PS: I loose if this is figure bingo; don't have the three figures in the line from upper left to bottom center of the image, just everything else.
Would probably add too much thickness for the length of fill I am missing from the case, plus that feathers issue I mentioned.
I figured since 160cm length covers are so damn common from places like hobbyheart that somebody here would know of a retailer that has 160x50cm pillow fills. It doesn't make sense for one to be so heavily available without the other.
All the resolution in the world means nothing if the lens doesn't evenly focus the subject material. If they look bad, it probably focused more on the case itself rather than the figures (autofocus is not telepathic, unfortunately).
I do see a bit of grain in those images so it's possible there isn't enough lighting in the shots they took. I usually only photograph CRTs so I wouldn't know. That and I apparently suck at wide-angle shots anyways as pic related will show.
Spot the bootlegs[/spoilers]
A little tidier on this side, at least.
I need to get a tripod, already.
They're actually more around 7-8 depending on the color/contrast range. I just resampled them (lowered the quality) in paint.net so I could drop the filesize.
The difference in quality is negligible, though (since the fujifilm saves as jpg anyways. Maybe I should try RAW).
That actually fucked me up for a minute and I had a hard time figuring out why.
Does your image viewer not have an auto fit-to-edge function? I fail to see the benefit of deliberately cutting down the resolution and potentially introducing resizing artifacts to the images as a result (in addition to the JPEG artifacts). It might obscure the flaws of my lens not focusing properly over wide angles but that's the only benefit I can potentially think of.

Does it really matter on a picture of a shelf? I understand and I love huge pictures of figures, I think it's pointless to have a high quality picture of you shelf. Do you want us to see the lettering in the boxes?
Probably not if I can't focus the scene properly, so fair enough. It's just what I keep on my camera by default (for close-range 1/30 shutter CRT shots where that does actually matter).

> All the resolution in the world means nothing if the lens doesn't evenly focus the subject material.
Sure, but that has little to do with why I was suggesting to do RAW->JPEG at like 2MB tops. It will just look better than JPEG->downsized JPEG, while also being smaller in general.
> If they look bad, it probably focused more on the case itself rather than the figures (autofocus is not telepathic, unfortunately).
My camera's face recognition actually often triggers with figures, so it is actually a little bit telepathic with figures.
Anyhow, smaller aperture or correctly placing focus would have helped too, sure.
> That and I apparently suck at wide-angle shots anyways as pic related will show.
Not sure it's just you, the lens seems kinda bad with that blur on the side and corners, and it's likely a Fuji camera, too?
Yea, you could maybe do better, but I remember what hard time I had with my super zoom in the past...
Not that I don't botch muh shots with a better camera now, for example I'll want to re-take pic related for instance 'cause I messed up the light setting on the speedlights, it is like 1/8th as sharp than it could be due to noise reduction.
Wow this looks great. You and James are my role models. I love your style.
She is cute. I hope you get the peg in.
Time to throw pillows at her and go "baka baka baka" and so on.
I need to get a tripod, already.
Time to buyfag?
And I actually think a speedlight would do more there. Handheld will be fine if you can do it at 1/300 or whatever no problem.
I'll consider it if I can get Tenso (or something better?) set up in the near future. I'm assuming A&J covers 160cm then?
Yeah, it's a Fuji. Finepix S8200. Focus is definitely hit or miss, even at 1X zoom (especially at 1/30 shutter/ISO 400 with no tripod).
Never used (or seen one of what you're mentioning) before so any suggestions?
>tfw my sister is also a weeb
>jealous of my collection
I'm gonna buy her some figures for Christmas.
>Yeah, it's a Fuji. Finepix S8200. Focus is definitely hit or miss, even at 1X zoom (especially at 1/30 shutter/ISO 400 with no tripod).
Yup, certainly a little harder to work with...
>Never used (or seen one of what you're mentioning) before so any suggestions?
You surely must have seen speedlights / flash units when people used them on their cameras or remote triggered on their light stands before? They're not that rare.
But I see that your camera model doesn't appear to have a flash hotshoe. You can still optically trigger an external flash with an on-camera one. But the mixture between these two lights can be a bit more tricky to get right if the on-camera one isn't freely adjustable.
Without a hotshoe, it's not so clear that a speedlight is the thing to get first. You can reliably optically trigger a YN560 (III?), but maybe in this case getting the tripod first is a better option even though anything decent will cost more.
Hopefully, the Panzer was a decent success and they will continue to produce figma vehicles.
I'm still fucking wait, but I'm also actively working on getting ready to one day 3D printing it.
I got two.
But I want to paint it first.
And people actually believed the Panzer would never get an actual release like the Trike.
Me, No regrets
It seems like it was successful, MF have show the prototype for the H ver. of the Tank, I hope that this means that more vehicles in the future
like the BRS Trike
IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES! I'M NOT READY!
>tfw someone got inspired by a idea of mine.
Is life worth living again?
Christmas miku came in and she's stunning.
>inb4 "prizes r shit"
Prizes are shit in comparison to scales.
I have no problem with people buying prizes for figures that don't have proper/only shitty scales. But for Miku? Only if it's your waifu.
I'm perfectly fine with being generic, fellow anon.
I've overspent on several setting materials too, I think I will probably save my money for gengas and signed books now.
I was watching a Sora no Otoshimono genga auction and it went up to 90k yen
I'm starting to get into storyboards
Storyboards vary in quality quite a bit because of their nature though, I bought a couple Saki storyboards and they're mostly empty space.
How busy they are depends on the show and i think the price reflects that. I know for some action shows storyboards go up to 20k. Pretty sure all of the Cross Ange ones go for 15k at least
I just bought a setting for a show as well but the papers weren't standard 8 1/2 x 11. They were more like 8 1/4 x 11 1/2. Were yours standard size? Mine won't fit correctly into sheet protectors.
Pic related. Me again. Laminated one but had to double laminate which made one side a little wavy. Regretting it a little and just bought legal size laminating sheet so that it could fit the whole thing.
Pretty sure only America uses 8.5 x 11. the sheets are A4 size which are much harder to get protectors and binders for in America. Amazon had them but they weren't as cheap as what you can find at office Depot in bulk

If it didn't need explaining then what was the purpose of the original reply? If it wasn't a request for an explaination then I may suspect it was a "shitpost." Although I don't like to jump to conclusions when it could easily be an innocent post.
The purpose? Highlighting the unnecessary use of an abbreviation so that the original poster may reflect on his habits and improve his future posts.
I see, yet that wasn't explained. Can you not see how simply repeating what the original post said can lead to a misunderstanding? You could say "I find your abbreviation unncessary, please do not use this in future posts."
Although I find his use of a common abbreviation perfectly acceptable myself, why type out a full phrase when it can be abbreviated into three characters and people would get the same understanding?
Sorry in advance if you lack the understanding of basic socialising or have some sort of disability.
I think it is you who lacks understanding of basic socializing as you did not bother to learn the general conventions of this particular forum, one of which is the general disapproval of abbreviations.
Or to put it more concisely: lurk moar, newfag.
Which boat should I get guys?
I like I-168 half dam but Kongo half dam looks great too is the FREEing I-168 any good?
But boats are objectively superior to other types of girls
Christ anon at least try to hide the hivemind. I can already predict you owning assasin, lucifer madoka and a bunch of shitty lupin mcdonald toys.
Why are you not my brother? He doesn't buy me anything, but can't ask for anything as he doesn't have a job.
Anyways, I might buy something for him. mostly mangas or doujins. I haven't see any interest on scales or nendos from him. Any recommendations, anons?
spaceships are superior. too bad they don't get nice figures
I would , but can't see any space for her. And that he's kinda lazy to clean dust.
Don't think he would like it. He's more into >>133902423
Anon, please. Such disgusting gift.
Got mine in the mail today
>ebay sellers asking for ~300usd
>about 450 usd on amazon US
>14000 yen on mandarake UNOPENED
the MM binder I posted earlier is around 250 pages. it was 150 ish in settings plus a full episode storyboard.
not so much repeats as small changes to the same sketch
My gosick one is full on just settings. No storyboards. A bunch of character design reference sheets, cast sheets, backgrounds, and background details. Counted it out at 127 pages.
Already have a husbando who I'm faithful, anon. And, please. he's 3d. I'ant laying a finger on 3d.
Seems better choice, I'm going to check those.
I have the original version and I want to hotglue her so bad but im afraid it will ruin the cloth fishnets.
Should I do it anyways?
Consider looking into jp's onaho guide but take everything with a grain of salt. Most /jp/sies hate tomax hard materials because they're one quick shot wonders.
onatsuyu isn't that great, but high up in terms of lube.
Stupid newbie question: How long does it take for a successful bid/auction on Buyee to show up, and what does pic related mean? How are there two bids for 12000?
Thanks! I will read those. Do you have one, anon? Any recommendations?
2d, anon. Pic related, sorry for fujo one but he looks handsome. And that I'm not in my PC. >>133903913
Sorry, for shitty structure too. I'm ESL.
I'm serious, anon. He even lurks there. Hope thread dies before he wakes up and see this. And I have posted some photos here, if you don't believe me. The last one was Makoto with the box damaged.
I take it blogging about imaginary sibling is acceptable here now?
Small album for you - go to imgur with the following after it /a/3qRxo
>Last week of november
>Still no release date or delay notice for figure scheduled for release in november
This one's my first. Pretty happy with it.
One thing though, the sword falls out of her hand at the lightest touch, and getting it back into her hand is surprisingly tricky. Should I just glue it in? Any other techniques to make it stay better? There's another accessory, but it has a separate arm to go with it.
everytime this bed is posted I'm gonna post this
better beds at Pripyat.
I currently own 3 holes 1 puni hip, owned 6 holes in total. The julia EXE is pretty good, totally different than what those reviews led me to believe. Own the rina big, Venus hard.
Love my venus and rina because they fit more of my dick than my old lolinco.They also made a lolinco + version.
Its a more refreshing thread than you and James filling every thread with succubus figures.
not far enough stalker, many more artifacts to be found
Post those shaved legs anon.
Think this is a decent collection here
>yfw your figs talk about watching you masterbate when you're not around/asleep
Didn't know those existed. Looks interesting enough to give him one of these.
Thanks for the recommendations! I'm going to research more, and see if I buy him a hip or a hole.
I would give them some compensation at least.
Wouldn't that have a risk of deforming it in an unwanted way? Is there a solution that doesn't involve heat treatment?
This isn't bait, is it?
>Charge up and hotglue
>The character strap I wear around my neck contains an essence that gets recharged whenever I hotglue a figure with a bro who also wears a character strap. It gives me confidence when sitting in my chair, hugging my daki, ordering onaholes, posting on 4chan, etc. Nobody knows it's a HG strap but for me and my bros. I have seen it glow white when hotglueing with a bud thats how I know this is real. You can come over for as long as you want but I need a picture of your shelf preferably displaying the strap before I waste my time.
Since we are on the topic of hotglue.
Post figures that you'd hotglue.
There are no videos of this figure and that saddens me.
You only do it for a few seconds. Heat doesn't start to noticeably fuck up the plastic right away. If anything, the main risk would probably be paint transfer but nothing bad has happened the few times I've done it. It's a legit solution but mostly used for loose nendo parts.
One of the best figs in existence. The hair sculpt is something else. Only thing I don't like is how transparent the sleeves are, I liked the prototype better.
They should market male figures to Fujo that have a "secret" double design. For example, a Haru figure from Free that is doing a diving pose and is shaped like a banana. They would round-out any spikes in his hair, because that would hurt. His arms would be to his side so that they wouldn't get in the way as well. Or perhaps a smooth water trail would surround him, so it goes in easier.
Just an idea.
How's the saying go?
My penis is erect?
Because it is.
I seriously wonder if anyone really gets a full-on boner looking at this kind of stuff. Sure I get aroused, but my dick certainly doesn't get hard. I can't get an erection without contact unless I'm watching some crazy fetish I'm into.
Just started collecting. Posting my humble collection. More Nendos are on their way
Never knew collecting figs could be so fun
Why did I buy this thing?
I'm new to this whole thing
I bought this for 45€ did I get scammed?
>read the word
>my brain automatically translates it to amputee fetish
>disappointment sets in
goddamnit /a/, I blame all of you for this
I ordered my first doujinshi today. What was your first doujinshi? What are you planning on getting?
A friend of mine went to C88 in August and offered to pick some stuff up with me. I gave him a list of 6 books I was interested in, though I hadn't actually scouted out upcoming releases before so I could of done a better job. He ended up trying to figure out my tastes and brought me back a stack of 14 books. He did a good job.
I'm afraid it's too late for you. You've caught Nendo fever. May God have mercy on your shelves.
The condition is manageable, but only if you make sure to keep the faces and accessories properly organized.
Suggestions on Nendoroid part organization?
Was thinking about using a Husky Parts Bin Organizer I have lying around the house. Currently I'm just keeping the parts inside their boxes
Invest in something to store the parts in so you don't have to keep going in and out of the boxes
Something like that should be fine as long as the compartments are large enough to accommodate the pieces. Keeping them in the boxes is also fine as long as you don't plan on swapping stuff often, but half the fun of Nendos and other such figs is changing their look from time to time.
First one was from my favorite artist/author. It was the best purchase I've done in my whole life. 2 years later and I'm still trying to collect all the original works she published before going pro.
I'll never own them all but at least I can keep trying for as long as I live.
Here's your You sweetie pie
Isn't that one in between nendo Aegis and Parfom Aegis mad expensive? How much was she?
Buyfags what do you do when a normie visits your home?
honestly i would never get most of the figures posted in these threadsi don't know how my family would react to them
Some of my friends would think they are cool, but im sure having shelves like >>133886251
would make everyone go away, that's just too much, my family would send me to a psychologist
that's why i keep my collection small, just a nendoroid(they think it's just a bobblehead)and some one piece ships
>Isn't that one in between nendo Aegis and Parfom Aegis mad expensive? How much was she?
Payd total incl. toll 150 €.
Too bad she came broken. I just had to repair here.
why? im not saying anything bad about buyfags
i just want to know how do you your figures when someone visits your home
figures are great, but lets be honest most normies would freak out
so how can i collect figures and have a normal social life at the same time?
My favorite Aigis figure?
My first one that i buyd of course. The Figma one.
To Bad she has now a broken arm.
But i still love her.
I admire your dedication it's very cute. I have that Parfom Aigis but I accidentally broke one of the little bullets off the gunfire effects being a hamhanded asshole now I'm considering buying the rerelease version since I'm getting Labrys and maybe giving my old one away
I think it would be too conspicuous that way. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Sometime later I will post my blueprints for secret dildo-designed figures targeted at fujo. Jojo, Osomatsu, Free.... The Matsus would be easy to fit into the form.
You're basically indirectly trashing buyfags. Oh hide the figures, what we're doing is shameful!
Most people don't give a toss unless you got jizz stained lewds all over the place.
Nendoroid boxes lie they know damn well it doesn't matter how "super movable" that shit is you can't make their hands touch together useless there's a piece for that
So, if I want to get this for less than 12k and have it marked down when it ships, my only option now is N-Y?
Favourite figure?, mine is the one in the pic.

Thanks for reminding me. I accidentally deleted my hentai anime folder few days ago and I'm still trying to remember the content for redownload.
tfw you want to buy dirty figures, but importing porn is prohibited here
Finally had a chance to pick her up.
I shouldn't been feeling so warm and fuzzy inside over her but she's just so pretty goddamn they knocked it out of the park with this.
