Handholding part is going to be GSC store exclusive, isn't it?
Good. I was tired of Chino.
I like the Pegasus
I got this made into a metal sign. What's a good way to mount it to a PVC pole? I don't know if I wanna outright put a hole and bolt that can be visible from the front.

Some of my figmas have been getting greasy, does this happen to everyone else? I dipped a brush in a very diluted soap and water mix and brushed lightly, some of it came of but they're still sticky. I'm afraid to brush them harder because paint might come out. Tips? Is freezing the only option left?
Yeah, I dust them every month. Only rubberish parts of older models are getting greasy, like skirts, scarfs and other malleable clothing parts so I thought maybe it had to do with the materials.
Preordering at the speed of sound Sonic.
It's not an intended pose, this is it.
Fluff is getting a rerelease for those that missed out on her.
For the price, she came out way better than expected. Details were not the main selling point anyway, unlike the main 7 sin series this is more about the gimmicks and fanservice, and with all those parts they really delivered.
It's a super interesting pose.
Because the sole pieces cover the holes where the base pegs go into.
tell me should i pre-order this or this >>133929145
Anime when? For FUCKS sake they announced it and I'm certain it's not happening because you fucking faggot are buying the figures anyway even though they don't even have a character
All of them have a character though, there's s plenty of character interaction in the 7 sins site.
Perspective, they are at the same level
Opinions, she pushes he right buttons for me, max amount of health and overall meat I'm willing to accept in a character. Pork chuckle be damned
What about this Rias figure? I really like her and would love a decent fig of her.
Not like you can't get humongous tits : better edition.
Damn, I'm gonna fap to that vn again tomorrow morning, and the morning after that and maybe another two days
I pray for a Kaiki scale everyday
Maybe in a perfect world
Question for those of you with lights. Do you have some sort of timer or sensor on your outlet that automatically turns them on and off? I am curious because I really don't want to have to manually turn them on every time due to cable management issues
You already fucked up. it needed to have mounting brackets welded onto the back before it was printed. if you attempt to weld anything onto the back now its going to wreck the paints in the front. your best bet now is to attach the pole to something that has a large surface area, as close to the sign's size as possible and use some contact cement to attach it to the sign.
I posted this in the last thread, they are $3-$8 on amazon depending on if you want to wait for them from china or not and work great.
Hopefully customs doesn't hot glue them too much, its the Iori + Yayoi phat figures
>order from japan
>dont even go through customs
>already at post office
It's a bracelet.
I agree. They either look plastic or like they're melting and fusing together.
Not seeing it. I can see a potential weld, though.
>leave work early to catch post office to sign for package
>they already came and left
I hate the inconsistency of the delivery service in my area.
What qualifies a package to require a signature? It seems every package from Amico has required one.
Pretty much all require sig except unregistered options like USAL.
My delivery service is also inconsistent like that, really annoying.
I like DHL because they always come from 4 - 5 pm in my area but not many stores offer it.
If it comes from Japan, chances are you have to sign. In fact I don't think there's ever been a time where they just left an international package at my door, Japan or otherwise.
Well you see. Canceling is frowned upon. Yet I must do it. That big ass 1/4 miku was delayed so much that it made my November order swell up to the point where I need to cancel either miku or two other scales. Not sure what to do.
Two rows of two holes each, a distance of the diameter between each hole. Cut a notch on the pipe for each row and use white zip ties to attach. Have a crudely drawn image to illustrate what I mean.
Not buyfag related, but it finally arrived and I promised to show it last week.
I regret everything.
I like them well enough. But maybe I'm biased because it's my first 1/4th scale.
They were $150. The design attracted me. I'm a sucker for this kind of cute stuff. The headphones are base heavy and cancel out any external sound. The cat ear speakers are low quality and don't get very loud. They sound like those $10 throwaway iphone speakers.
I still think it's pretty neat to have, but they are way too overpriced for their shitty quality. I won't wear them outside, of course. I wish they will develop a multicolor version down the road.
Well shit. Time to face the music. I have sent out a cancellation request to amiami for the bigass Miku and that shitty Rias. If all goes well, hopefully they won't ban my account. If they do, then I'm gonna go ahead and start buying only confirmed 10/10 figures.
Amico ships her via EMS to the USA for 29,700yen.
GSC ships her via EMS to the USA for 29,800 yen.
You are saving 100 yen by going through Amico on this one. 1/4 scales are a bitch to ship. Amico has better shipping boxes and padding than GSC anyways, plus their cute little card.
They will ban you, mate. A lot of people at MFC and reddit have been cancelling theirs since the delays and shipping price pushed it into the Holiday season shopping time. Specially since Black Friday is this week people are saying that they needed to save up money.
Miku came out at a bad time for normal collectors.
>plus their cute little card
How autistic am I that this is a major factor when it comes to buying stuff? I'll use them even when they're more expensive (which admittedly isn't very often) just because of the cute anime girl postcard.
PVC statues don't have much utility value either.
that said, in my opinion it shouldn't be a major factor. I can understand it being one among several, but it dominating is a bit odd.
I just keep them propped up against boxes, but I'm thinking about getting frames for my favorites. Typing this out has made me realize how ridiculous it is, but I still don't feel ashamed.
Yeah I do the same, it is what it is, they're still convenient on letting you cancel and hold things in their warehouse for you.
My biggest gripe with them is sometimes they dont get enough stock for all their preorders and they will say nothing, you can still there for weeks and they wont let you know that you should just cancel your order and look elsewhere.
I collect the cards too. But Amico is a better deal due to the way they pack and ship your boxes. You also get $2.90 in points you can use later, if you care about that.
The blue looks dumb but that is only when he bring girls over for seducing
I am still learning how to draw. Just started a few months ago after I started buyfagging doujins.
Please no bully.
Not at all. It's still way off the mark from the original. I got a long way to go, but it's a lot of fun. I try to draw a new page daily.
Not yet. My goal is to get good enough to start taking requests on the /drawfag/ threads.
>can't even assess the figure as a whole
Lol yeah I fucked that up real good didn't I? Okay start over. Better yet, guys, post some badass super high quality figs that I can buy. Because I'm pretty sure I'm getting banned from Amiami. First ones I'm tracking down are Santa Sin, and Momohime.
mine just arrived. My first purchase, couldn't be happier!
sorry for the shit pic but my camera is broken, what figure would you recommend to add to my collection?, I looking for tall figs 26cm or more, like selvaria and yuuko.
sell me the one in the middle
These are some sexy cute figures I've been looking at lately.
It looks a bit lower but not bad.
Knowing Orchid Seed it will be around 2-3 years after they announce it if ever. Kotobukiya did a pretty decent job of her back in 2003.
What was used in this original image? Also they called me asking if I needed any holes in my sign before I pick it up so I wasn't sure where exactly therefore I still have a chance. So place holes like >>133937389 said?
Yeah, I feel like the straps should be thicker too.
I guess the corset part could be that its creasing, causing it to roll down.
Either way, its minor and her face looks spot on, which is the most important part for me.
Day 1 preorder of my only daughteru
>all these people shitting on the mexican of asia
A majority of poorf/a/g rooms dont even look close to that and live in first world countries.
Poorfags being this salty again.
i wonder if there are good looking jap girls collectors
Something tells me the shipping fees are going to be twice as expensive as the manga itself.
I don't even want to know how much this is going to cost.
do you guys prefer display cabinets or displaying your figure's on a shelf?
It's good man, but copying images won't increase your drawing skill at anything other than copying images.
I use to do this when I was younger and starting to draw.
Experiment with drawing different poses, faces, hand gestures, etc... and combine them into poses you draw from your imagination.
It'll take time and your first ones will be embarrassing, but it will help you in the long run.
I can get her unopened for $130. Should I get her Koto's looks fucking terrible to me
it's an old as fuck figurine trust me the quality isn't that good.
Now that she's finally within reach I'm having second thoughts
I got my Utaha today on the mail. Also came with MonMusu BD 3.
Now I need to finish cleaning my room and buying furniture to display it in.
I'm considering taking a trip to Japan to see the sites and all that shit. Should I just spend 3grand on figures instead? I've never been out of the country and it would be exciting, but I could buy so much shit for that. Is Japan really worth it, anons?
>There will never be a Lapis figure
>There will never be a decent adaptation
My waifu deserves better.
Black Heart arrived today.
My wallet is dead as usual.
Why not at the same time?
The worst part of having a garbage adaptation is that since the anime wasn't profitable we're not going to be getting merchandise. If only people liked everything I liked.
Would 4,000 be enough though? I wouldn't buyfag anything big (I'd have a big backpack and that's it)
I'd be going alone, anon. You can come with if you want.
I'm only 20, should I wait till I'm older?
I only just turned 18 in April so I'm probably not going to go for a few years. I'm also going on a family trip to Europe next year so I doubt I'll be looking at Japan until around 2017 - 2018
time pisses me off it really needs to go faster, at least I'll have more spending money and hopefully friends by then.
>time really needs to go faster
You barely just stopped sucking on your mother's tits, calm down.
What are your guy's experience on buying figures listed as opened on Mandarake? Before anyone says hotglue it's a male character so I'm willing to think it's okay, if you buy something open are the figures themselves generally in good shape?
I guess. I went with a High Sierra Elite backpack and a half-filled 16x22x8 inch suitcase and since I couldn't ship anything, my bags came back completely packed.
4000 should cover the plane ticket and transportation, but more doesn't hurt. They have ATMs everywhere if you need to withdraw more money.
Convenience store food is alright, but try splurging a little. They have really great eats over there. Don't forget to do your research and visit some non-weeb places.
Also, did you find it easy to travel from city to city with a suitcase? I'm doing Tokyo, Nara, and Kyoto.
Snake up on GSC shop for those who can't wait on ami.
I had my suitcase shipped to the hotel everytime I changed location. It arrived by the next day with express shipping. If you want to save money, I guess you could bring the thing with you, but realize that you'll be the extra obnoxious suitcase gaijin and the majority of your transportation will be on foot. I did Tokyo, Nagoya/Yokkaichi and Kyoto.
Despite the wings being a bitch to get on, she is a thing of beauty.
>Buyfags are supposed to be tripfag repost threads!
The traveling is pretty relevant to buyfagging, especially if anons cover wonfest etc. Hownew.ru
hey guys, does this look legit? the ratings and names seem pretty good
it's on amazon.ca btw
Are these sold out at all the Shuiesha stores? I had a friend check the Osaka location and they're gone.
USD would not be relevant in this case since it has nothing to do with either side of the industry (Chinese workers paid in Yuan, Japanese employers paid in Yen), it just so happens that the USD is also coincidentally strong right now. If the USD were weak, the Yen would still be weak.
But it is relevant, in fact every currency is relevant. Abenomics happened and overall the yen was artificially weakened from within Japan, it wasn't a mere parity issue between CNY and JPY, it was JPY against every currency
March 2016 release
Velvet's face also ruins it.
AUD not so much either, now the mining boom is over.
My state (South Australia) now has a 12% unemployment rate for men.
>I don't want to pose for more figures
>Fuck this shit
>Yamato's was better
I remember an anon explaining that you should (see: need to) learn the essentials of anatomy and how to actually draw properly, especially in the case of making dat OC. The example that I remember sticking out the most it gave was that even Picasso new how to draw and paint "properly" before he started experimenting. Mangaka have an anime style, but they know how their anatomy and how to manipulate it on a page.
I remember when I was interested in drawing and I was doing what you were doing. It's fun and the results are pretty gratifying at first, but if you want to really be serious, start drawing people's faces, find some textbook pdfs, etc.
I'm sorry if I'm coming off didactic but you're going to hear it from someone else eventually.
Thanks for the heads up. GSC bonus sucks more than usual.
