No Christmas gift for me this year.
planning to import a bunch of used games.
in general, what's the worst thing that can happen if you get caught undervaluing?
Would they, for example, charge me the full non-used price for the games, or will they register me onto some sort of list or sue?
also, would it worth trying to undervalue ems packages to a lower (yet still believable and over the no-tax threshold) amount to save a bit?
Or is it meaningless and will just cause more trouble?
Hunts over, I got her for $130. I can scratch one more off the top of the list
I'm getting madder and madder that amiami STILL hasn't sent me an email asking for payment.
My Christmas is worse now.
To those looking at getting LL concert tickets, I was just getting up to date with news. The Blu Ray lottery is open until Jan 17 with the result around the Jan 22. There will also be general admission tickets.
It's too late anon it's over
Everything went away when the anime ended
In Shibuya right now, going to Akihabara in a few hours. Know of any good shops where I can buy fairly cheap figurines and Gintama merchandise?
Yep, same guy who asked before. Pic unrelated, random picture from Hakone.
You're not going to find very cheap stuff in Akiba. If you're just looking for merchandise (everything, figures, tshirts, bags whatever) there are enough multiple storey buildings around the centre area of Akiba (right next to the station) filld with that.
Definitely recommend checking out Nakano Broadway too, it is like 20 mins from Akiba station with the Chuo line (iirc).
Would you buy a figure with cloth elements?
How big must this guys otaku dick be right now?
Came with some postcards and diorama cutout
Most standard releases do, and the price eventually settles somewhere between the lowest it fell and retail. Exclusives generally don't since they're made in limited quantities.
That's a long neck.
That's not me. In all seriousness, though, I'll probably end up selling the POP Wonderland Alice I drunk purchased so that I can afford to keep both.
Drunk figure shopping is a bad idea
I preordered on play-asia
There's always the scale
Has anyone here shopped with Dengekiya before?
Long story short, I attempted to buy a figure with a (foreign) debit card but the payment bounced after several weeks of limbo before they tried withdrawing it again to similar effect(?)
I don't speak moon but the impression I get (vaguely) from their FAQ is that they don't accept debit cards/foreign cards? Just curious because if I'm just going to wait another week for them to cancel the transaction, I'd be as well phoning my bank and doing it myself.
many do, but even then they're not exactly cheap.
There sure is no better feeling as to close the year with something from your waifu.
Did anyone else get this Sonico figure with fucked up paint under the skirt? Saw some weird black splotches on her upper thighs. Thankfully, it's hidden when the skirt is on.
>Japanese Barbie for weebs*.
Japanese Barbie is black, I'm pretty sure. So Sonico can't be Japanese Barbie.
pic related, spoilered for pig digusting.
>2 of em
so how is the quality for e2046's prepainted stuff? I know they use molds of molds sometimes but what about the paint jobs?
I'm fucking sold.
She can be added to my blue bunny collection with Nanoha and Ryoko
I won a bid on eBay and paid it. Now listing is removed from eBay. Am I being jewed? I got I cheap. They were obviously spamming their own listings right before they close but messed this one up
What is this? "PSYCHO-PASS psychopath a theater distribution Setting collection -- I (常守朱) 1 volume"
are you guys ready for some HIGH EDGE statues?
Setting collection distributed at theaters. Probably focuses on Akane since there's others with different characters on the front. It's probably just a few pages of scribbles given its price.
I've seen a lot of posts of people hot glueing their figures even though they aren't broken.
What purpose does this serve? Is it to get the dust off?
Also what brand of hot glue do you recommend? I see most attempts end up very clumpy.
I had a hard time trying to completely comprehend what you were saying there, anon.
It's stuff like this. There's 4 in total: Akane, Gino, Kogami, and Kogami+Akane. Gino's and the one with Kogami and Akane on the front have stuff for other characters as well.
Some, but not all. I love both Sonico and Pochaco.
Best location to place light strips in a detolf? I got 8 mm LED light strips not that ugly ikea dioders.
I'd like to do 2 in parallel on the side for each level, but I don't think my power supply will be able to handle that in parallel with my bookshelf.
Dont Bother with foreign credit cards. Just use fromjapan to buy exclusive stuff. They charge 5% commission but sign up for their emails. They do free commissions once a month.
Planning on pre-ordering two Shiro figures, one from Kotobukiya and the other from Aquamarine.
Still fucking waiting on my third-party distributor to get Plamya in.
>shitty effortless sculpted hair
>irrelevant faceplates that have nothing to do with the character.
>21% discount (20% standard) on amiami instead of 23%
Pretty easy to say I won't be buying Nendoroids for much longer. Even kahotan's review was utter shit and showed she knows absolutely nothing about CG. Maybe she should have interviewed someone for this post.
this nendo comes with a mount. It does sits at 5500, though.
What are you guys waiting for?
I'm still waiting for my freakin OPPAI hoodie from CD japan
Decide on how you feel about the base before finalizing your purchase.
Buying more just means spending more. If there's several you actually want then it is better to buy more than one, since you only have to pay the forwarding/proxy fee once. But otherwise you're just going to be spending more money.
these are the most retarded looking things I have ever seen
>He doesn't like the Japanese animation inspired look of the Americano timepiece.
It's prize figure tier.
posting popshit should result in a permaban from /a/
I don't like how the foot support and the base are different. Reminds me of Elf's cone.
Is spray painting Sinon's base to make it uniform an idea?
She must have some big fucking calluses from holding that sword at the blade. And is that the reason she's angry, or is it because someone smeared jam on her face after beating her with that goat she's still wearing?
I ordered something off Amazon.jp like I always do, but I accidentally entered an old debit card I forgot to use instead of the actual card. When I changed to the actual card, I kept getting an error back about how they couldn't get my money from it. The only thing I could think of was because the currency switched to yen instead of dollars so the card won't take it.
I contacted my bank, and they said it should be fixed. When I told amazon to take the money out, I got back the same error. Is there any way to fix this? I don't want to lose this item, and it's already sold out from Amazon, and I don't trust the shops that sell there.
This is super cute and I happen to be enjoying this show this season
I contacted them in English and I got a response in English. But they couldn't even help. Now I have to find a way to pay for this shit, I don't want to lose the amazon preorder bonus.
Get better taste so you'll never have any pre-orders.
After that, search MFC for figures of characters that are actually good, see that they all cost $200+, and then realize that you're here forever. Quitting is not an option.
I didn't know about the release, looks like Kotobukiya announced it a month ago, but I don't see anything about an Aria scale.
It looks really cute and I just got finished watching last week's episode so I'm interested, but I think I'd regret this one; I forgot about the first season of HnA pretty fast, although I think all the cute girls and lack of a male MC made this one a bit better.
Is the dress supposed to come off or is this forced?
>Dispatch from outward office of exchange
This is one of the most vague messages I've ever received in my life. Does it mean it has left Japan? Has it traveled around the globe multiple times since it haven't arrived for three weeks? Or is it just sitting idle in a warehouse in the airport.
>You just inherited 20000 anime dollars
What do you buy?
I'll be going to Tokyo soon and my imouto wants Alpcasso stuff. Are plushies among the items in the cheap used sections in Akiba and Nakano? I want to get her a ton of smaller ones and maybe a big one without using all my yens.
She actually has a wonderfully done face.
Just went to go pick this loner up. Thought she'd be bigger with the price they set even with the crystal paperweight.
Together with the one from last month.
She's nice but I'd have to read the VN first. I'll learn moon someday. Buyf/a/g, if you could trade in all your figures to magically become fluent in Moon, reading, writing, speaking, would you?
Looking to get like a Mami head plushie or doll for one friend to Christmas to go along with her soul gem and a Reina (Hibike) doll, poster or body pillow case for another friend. Any suggestions? My budget is like 45 bucks and I have found a lot of good ones on ebay but they would all get here after Christmas
>tfw an extra week of non-prime shipping.
My friend's copy arrived earlier today because I got him to order something for me because he had prime, even though it wasn't supposed to be released until the next day.
Unfortunately there's no way for a pad printer to do eye shadow like that, or eyes when they're so indented like that. So there's no way the final piece will look that good.
That's fancy as shit though. If the retail looks like that I would buy it.
So on amiami, is it possible to combine an item currently available with an order for a future month?
Cool, I found it. The answer was
noby the way.
The originating country/city is listed next to this entry. If it has left said office of exchange what do you think that means?
Yeah. I'm going to keep an eye out for the final product and if I like it I might pick her up. Not going to preorder with UC's track record though.
It could mean a variety of things, which is why I asked. It could also mean that the package is ready and waiting for export security scan, which means it hasn't left the country.
>smug anime girl
It depends of the manufacturer. Some of the better ones, like Alter and Max Factory consistently produce final products that are very, very close to the marketing shots of the prototype you see early. Other makers have final products that are far poorer and some makers are inconsistent.
So much GSC stuff has binned this last half a year that it almost feels pointless to preorder. Feels more reasonable to not preorder, buy on sale and then just buy the stuff that sells out at scalper prices.
Can't be good for the industry.
Honestly I wouldn't recommend this Broccoli one. It looks okay enough but the size and slight discoloration in the shoulders and thighs don't justify the retail price. Sword looks pretty unremarkable too. That being said, I am very certain that the sculptor is a thighs man. These are very meaty looking thighs on this one.
FJ Just emailed me saying a recent arrival had some box damage and asked if I wanted to cancel the order.
They didn't say, I'm guessing they'd just have me pay for the shipping back to the seller.
There's no way I'm doing that, it's taken 8 days just to get to this point and I'm hoping to get her before Christmas.
Do you have a reaction face folder that's just figures?
Just ordered this from Mandarake for 12000
Bit pricey for me to be honest but I haven't ordered a fig in months and thought I'd treat myself. I actually enjoyed the game too even though
she disappears halfway through
Thing is though, if somebody was going to bomb a place like that you'd just do it in the queue outside since everyone is crammed together. You'd actually probably take out less people by using it inside.
Not that I'm some professional bomber or anything...

You lot a bunch of real faggots.
I have two strips in the top shelf on the top left and right, then two strips in the third shelf the same way. The light carries from the top into the second and fourth shelves pretty well.
>he doesn't spam this when tripgfags post stupid shit or obvious normalfags post here.
So I was very sceptic of Sega Prize at first. But after I bought Satsuki and Ryuko, I was extremely surprised. Does anyone know, if the Mikoto figure lives up to the same quality?
I dropped s1 around the time ponytail tits and japanese gambit appeared and Index was telling Touman about herself
I'd check mfc and take a close look at the pictures.
Don't be a pussy ass bitch and buy a real man's Mikoto
yes. Aoi on her way and I'm hyped like a 9 year old waiting for santa
Prize figs are great for value. They used to be terrible but their quality is getting better and better. Usually the only flaws are a few paint specks and some slightly rough edges.
They're nice for filling shelves.
I love all of mine honestly. My favorite I have is pic related. She's gorgeous in person and was only 1000 anime dollars.
I love Yayoi as well. I was thinking about buying that, but it looked pretty flimsy. Pity that most Precures don't get the Alter/scale figure treatment and end up being action figures instead.
Also, I'm pretty sure that figure is made by Bandai.
I was speaking of prize figures in general, sorry for the confusion.
There's nothing flimsy about mine, her ponytail has been holding up just fine even without a stand for it. I don't know about other precure figures because >muh daughteru but all the ones I have of Yayoi are adorable and pretty sturdy, even the Figuarts. I recommend the Figuarts Zero prize if you're not into jointshit, as well as her Princess Cure figure of course.
Alright, thanks for the recommendations. I'll look into it.
Though it's a bit annoying how a lot of merch is limited to the most popular Precure. For Smile, for example, I really liked Nao. But I think Yayoi has most of the merch just because she was the most popular.
There just ceases to be direct link when you search, but if you have the item watched or you've won or your press on a link from Google, you can see whether or not it's still up. It's just unsearchable.
