My copy of KanColle Kai is finally about to arrive. Everything proceeded pretty fast until Canadian customs kept my package for nearly three weeks. They had to play the whole game or something?
No Canadian customs actually prioritizes stuff instead of throwing everything together like a lot of other countries do. If you used EMS it would of been in and out of customs in anywhere from 1 day to a few minutes. SAL sits there and waits in a long line with all other non-express stuff.
I don't put much stock into bluray. It's just a format and the dvd comes with everything that the bluray does. If I want to watch it HD I can just download it.
Eventually bluray and dvd will be just as shit as vhs. It doesn't feel worth it to spend the extra on bluray purely from a collector's standpoint.
I missed an amiami final payment because I didn't realize i had a figurine ordered in the month of February..
Looks like my May preorder is still in tact..so guess I am not banned?
Anyone here ever miss a payment?
Because by that point I realized I have a bunch of mkv files that do the same thing but better.
And if I were to buy them purely for collecting purposes then it's gotta be the bullshit Japanese volume releases that would already run up to 3000yen
L-Licking Dio's mole!
The fuck is this shit.
>phone call wakes me up
>decide to answer
>DEBIT CARD FRAUD PREVENTION
>A CHARGE OF $99.95 WAS MADE AND DENIED FROM INSERT BUYFAGS STORE OF CHOICE
>IF YOU MADE THIS CHARGE, PLEASE CONFIRM
T-Thanks fraud prevention.
What pisses me off is that I call my bank and tell them to allow Japanese charges, but they only clear it for 24 hours, so if the charge happens to get split up or delayed... HOORAY! Fraud Protect!
If it seems to be stupid but you like it, it ain't stupid.
Who gives a shit if some anon anywhere in the worl, you'll never meet, don't like your taste.
I've bought so much weeb shit I'm sure if I used a credit card for once my bank would be cool with it.
>Oh it's them buying plastic tits again. Let it through, Phil.
Oddly, the only time I've gotten one of these fraud protection alerts was when I tried to buy a phone. Had to call my bank and tell them to calm their jets.
CC's usually never have this problem. In my case my credit card lets me charge the living shit out of it but then emails me 3 days later about someone possibly stealing my information. With my debit card I cant order shit without it freaking the fuck out.
Don't tell me to use my credit card I need to pay that shit off
Same shit happens to me. I called my bank and the lady who spoke perfect english had a hard time pronouncing HS name because she though it was some japanese engrish nameshe pronounced it see-Aurch. Then she tells me this happens if you don't have a history with them, which I do. The same thing happens the following month.
Same with my debit card.
I think the problem for debit cards is the bank, and not Visa or Mastercard or any other provider.
My friend and I bet on fights, but the transaction is in China, his always go through fine but I have to get mine unlocked for 24 hours despite us both having Visa, but he is with a different bank.
my bank is weird, they never did any fraud protection on anything from japan, on all the things I've bought from there, but I buy one thing from the USA and suddenly FRAUD PROTECTION, then I try to pay the DVLA my car tax and suddenly FRAUD PROTECTION
I really don't understand their logic here...
Last BDs I bought. I'll most likely buy more for cartoons I like that don't have scales. I like having them on the bookshelf by my bed so I'm reminded of my excellent taste every time I wake up.
How do you even get figures like pic related in North America? Stuff isn't as mass-produced and pre-orderable like typical scale figures. Is the only answer to go to WonFes in person and buy any good independent figs you see?
Y!Japan auctions and mandarake/suruga-ya for aftermarket.
Sometimes if you can find the sculptor's website you can try to email them to get one, but I've only heard of people doing it twice now.
The most common and easier (and less expensive) way is finding a recast from recast sites. E2046 and GK-Model are two most used.
I can't precisely blame them for it.
That said, my card company realized I wasn't going to stop buying bishoujo figs from internet-nippon after the third time. So I'm probably lucky in that regard.
WELP, time to learn a just enough moonspeak to enable my unhealty hobby.
I hope pic related is sitting on a shelf somewhere, waiting for me to buy her.
In my local bank branch explaining that charges in Japan aren't fraudulent. Teller says "Oh Miami" and "mander-rake". I know what she means, so I don't bother to correct her. Or I get an automated phonecall asking me the authorise a transaction and the digital voice says "Oh eye me" for AmiAmi.
Taobao can be good for recasts if you know exactly what you're looking for. Some stores let you buy direct now, but I gave up trying to figure out Alipay so i still go through Celestial Delinquent.
>TFW waiting for Freeknight119 to run his neuroi witch mold again.
My amico has been missing for 1 week now what the fuck. It doesnt take 7 days to travel a whopping 8 miles from the PO to my house
Fucking yuros. At least say white or "western" if that was what you were aiming for.
Okay faggot, you're quick to say what looks shitty. So post examples of what you think is a good figure.
Yes I'm talking to you, yes you reading this. Why are you still reading this? Go find a picture of a figure you think is good quality. What the hell are you staring at? I said go!
She binned, but I liked her.
Yes I can, I'm your mother, now put some cloths on your naked little girls figures, stop throwing your tissues you jerk off into into the bathroom trashbin and do your laundry.
Now that Fate/Extra have a new project.
How likely her figma get a standard reissue?
Still waiting for Tamamo to go up.
Please don't be hostile. Anyone can say anything they want.
>pretending to be a mom on /a/
Do you self insert as the mom in doujins?
What a whore, I bet you want to get rammed by gaijin cock so far up it'll come out of your nose.
A lot of fraud is from third world fags using american addresses, not so much scamming americans. bank wire to nigeria? no thanks. bank wire to new york forwarded to nigeria? what could go wrong.
Refresh my memory.
The only type-moon scale I remember seeing from the various WonFes reports was the unpainted prototype of Mordred in armor.
Was there a Tamamo scale that I missed?
just reserved this
why koto never made the fucking blue eyes dragon? fuck you
>call bank and ask them to lift the limits on my card for another 24 hours
>contact Amazon and ask them to run my card again
>they say it went through and it's good to go now
>check site again an hour later and get another message that my payment information needs to be revised
I don't know what to believe anymore...
>it's super encrypted, so you are going to need some shitty extra device or at least have some super shitty software installed
or even better
>it's the wrong region code
>can't be played on shitty extra device
>need to import another shitty extra device
I get that they just don't want my money. So why not just continue downloading things for free and spent money on something useful.
I want to buy a figure off Ami for $50, but I only have $15 in my actual bank account right now, with 50 pending from PayPal. So that 50 is in like limbo, not in my bank or PayPal balance; is it safe to buy the figure via PayPal?
Do the banks and PP like interact, and detect those pending funds, or delay the payment request so my bank acc doesn't bounce?
Sorry if this is jibberish. Im inebriated, but I had this question while in a normal state, too. I don't want to miss out on an Ami preowned fig because PayPal takes a fucking millennium to transfer funds.
Well, there is one...
Very likely just Extra version reboot. Well, maybe when GSC get license for Grand Order.
Well then you should point out what is wrong. Otherwise what I posted is true.
>It's cracked, but still.
Not it's not. Not in a sense that you can just play every AACS encryped media.
were the codemonkeys behind this software (that I've never heard of before--who uses physical media ay lmao) retarded?
I know enough about encryption to know that a competent programmer/organization could create a virtually impossible-to-crack code. Was it social engineering that fucked it?
I have a lot more money coming in very soon. I'm also a high school student getting a free ride through community college credits, living with parents. I know I could be saving for retirement, but fuck it--these can even be justified as investments (I have kept all my figures sealed, 40+)
They will always have to allow more than one software to play it. And there are always enough retarded programmers.
Also I doubt there is something like a "virtually impossible-to-crack code".
They're really doing that? When I was in high school they were looking to fund a program like that in where students would stay an extra year and graduate with an associates. It never happened though, you're one lucky faggot.
>Also I doubt there is something like a "virtually impossible-to-crack code".
Without a backdoor, there absolutely is. The only hope for cracking even an average code by today's standards, would be with quantum computing. Our best supercomputers would some insane figure of years (like in the billions or something, look it up) to crack something like Veracrypt.
The key is "backdoor," which is why I asked about social engineering. While these encryptions can't be bruteforced, you can bruteforce the programmer to give you the master key if it exists.
I'm that inebriated poster from a few minutes ago, so my articulation is hamstrung atm, but it's really not as great as it sounds. I'm heavily considering just joining the Navy instead of transferring to a U. A lot of these universities want you to take *their* intro classes, so it all feels sort of useless in the end, despite how I made it out to be.
It's a good experience overall, though, and I'm better prepared for life as a result of this program.
I have parents, and assets ($3k+ in sealed figures, a car). I don't have the silver spoon, but an 18 year old with a solid nuclear family is pretty safe from financial disaster.
That's true. The difference for encryption when used for DRM is that there always needs to be a way for the consumer, so basically everyone, to unencrypt it though. So you will either have give the keys to everyone in some way or have a backdoor for everyone. I think this is where it fails.
That's true, in my case the connection was potential students would stay within city colleges. So the credits would be legitimate and they couldn't say no since you would be taking their intro classes while in high school.
You are the autist here. There is a difference between asking your parents for spending money and asking for money for a financial emergancy, which I'm pretty sure is what that anon is talking about.
I am a little off socially, and I really do mean just a little (outwardly, anyway). I have friends, and lots of anxiety/health problems. I'm not retarded or autistic, though. I don't ask my parents for money--never. I work for them. But if the worst came, and everything went to shit, what the fuck is shameful about a loan from your parents? Anyone/any parent would do it, that's what family's for.
you it incited this blogposting by making speculations of my personal life, so don't go try niggering me about that.
>and I'm better prepared for life as a result of this program
This is why I feel so bad whenever I see that a college student has died on the news and shit. Always remember that you're living life right now, faggots. And there is a skeleton living life inside you, too.
I thought it was funny, but now I think you're a bit autistic for asking anon-kun.
>wanting faster threads
>So you will either have give the keys to everyone in some way
what do you mean by this? the consumer creates their own key. I have some encrypted stuff that no one, not even the NSA, could access without forcing me to spit out the passphrase (that I created, and made long/complex).
If it fails, it's either because the company was crooked kept backdoors (master keys), or the consumer didn't put enough effort into creating their key (or they got a bullet to the kneecap and gave it up voluntarily).
I actually do think I have some autism. I was homecoming prince when I was still in regular HS sophomore year, but there's definitely something off with me that people detect.
I'm so ready for the rain of shit for writing my life story and ">weed lmao xD"..I did mention I was inebriated. I don't really have a desire to post when sober.
You don't "crack the code". This isn't fucking Hackers. You capture the stream after it's decrypted OR you exploit vulnerabilities in the system that bypasses the encryption scheme altogether. Since most software (even proprietary) shares common languages and platforms, a vulnerability in another organization's code can present itself as an exploit for your own.
Most companies realize this and push for legal ramifications to even attempt to bypass media encryption (i.e. DMCA).
>the consumer creates their own key.
In case of encryption on commercial BDs the one who produces them will have to create the keys, otherwise there would be no encryption on the BDs and so they could be copied very easily.
Uh, possibly. I don't remember, honestly. That's kinda what I mean when I say that I'm "off." I don't know how to tangiate it, but I'm unique and tend to stick out (usually not in good ways, but sometimes). I'm a contrarian and get very intense with mundane things, like 4chan arguments/blogging with provoked.
Oh, I'll just concede to that, and perhaps misinterpreted something you said. You seem to know more about it than me, I just wanted to point out the false assertion that you can't make an uncrackable code (like... trillions of years with today's tech, and maybe crackable with the tech of 50? 100? years from now).
in other words, if I created a trip or w.e, you would see trends in these threads where I come in and fuck things up. God I sound edgy, but Im really not trying to be. It's not a good thing.
oh yeah I do vaguely remember that. That was me. I still maintain my position with that; reddit is the best place to trade. You get hounded as a jew here, or jewtaxed on ebay, and ridiculous listing limits on MFC unless you subscribe or some shit. There is no better platform, it's obvious. But,
>haha leddit sucks xD
The meme is impenetrable.
/r/all is trash, it's just like any other massive social networking site--there is mostly bad, but some good. 4chan as a whole is pretty much fucking retarded, and 8ch is superior, but we stay because there are a couple oases boards/threads. Same principle.
I'm going to have a hell of a unboxing event for you guys soon.
Please don't laugh at my
Sega Wifeor my Dorm Room Setup
lt's just real talk, my friend, without the mindless compulsion to blend in. Don't you feel the oppressive nature in these threads? Honestly ask yourself this: before you post something, do you often hesitate and scour it for anything that might be attacked? People are vitriolic and hostile to the extreme in this thread, but I don't try to change that because that's PC/SJW safe space culture bullshit.
I'll stop posting for now though. Goodnight.
Just realized that was a old photo.
You could now pay for like 12 months rent.
fucking Rakuten goofed hard first time around paying through paypal.

Why there's no info in the guide about buying cels?
Have you guys bought a cell before?
YEEAH BABY IM BACK
also, april needs to be now.
sounds like you need a burrito right now
Do you find it odd people do things different than you?
So I noticed this is only a 4th of a bath tube, but if put on some cellophane with tape to hold it, I could still create a seal to put stuff in it.
The question is, what? A bunch of M&Ms? Burritos?
No, because I'm not a Taco eating faggot
Where can I just get the bathtub? All I'm seeing on used sites like Mandarake is that it's a package deal or just the figure.
Accidentally broke my VAH chopper leg.
The shaft of the foot joint is stuck inside
What should I do?
Exactly. I don't really care for the snake skin thing she's got going on, but why in the fuck is it blue? She should be all earth/neutral tones all the time. The choice saves my wallet though.
Suru gets them in from time to time, though they don't have any right now. I remember the price being around 3.5k though. Native released them separately. Search for 汎用バスユニット.
I have a thing for the blue hair and I like the face so i'm glad i pre-ordered.
>Mage fig when?
I'm losing hope here.
I'd have to do research first on how well the Sonico figure would fit into the tub if I were to pull the trigger, I'm sure shipping will be $30+ because it's polystone.
Although we're getting off topic in what I should fill in the Sonico tub.
Thanks. Time to decide if I should pull the trigger. Since I don't know if it's a B grade figure and that's a crap shoot.
And risk of protein stains.
Also, one thing miffs me. The suds accessory doesn't fit that well onto my Sonico. I don't think the usual heating to remold would work. Is it possible to get replacement parts through Native or some other site since I didn't see anything in the guide.
>noticing such an odd detail
Never change, /a/
>Shipping: 10.5k Yen
Well the good news is that I'll be getting some shit from C89 and getting some shit I missed out on.
So long, that there was a second one.
>I have a thing for blondes in armor.
Extend that to "Any woman in armor" and we're on the same page bro.
Shame even when you extend it to that much you still mostly got Sabers.
Not that I dislike Saber, but variety is nice.
I guess I'm lucky because I don't really care for saber's armor. I've never really wanted any of her figures. Unfortunately (or fortunatly, depends on how much money I have) there aren't that I even want, just Vertex's Celia and the Shining Wind one. Can you reccomend any other ones I might have missed? I hate how MFC's tags work sometimes; some are tagged "armor parts", "amour", "armor", etc. it's frustrating.
Not that guy, but Alter's Alisha has knee high leg and forearm armour. I don't really know if it fits your bill though.
Not him, but I like Clalaclan a lot.
That frilly petticoat (I think that's the right term?) is kinda massive and amazing. Girls in armor also do it for me, so there you go. If you like blondes in armor, I see no reason not go get her.
She is also a good example (for me) of loving a figure while not giving a shit about the source material. I never played a Shining game and I still think she's great.
Soon I will be free
at least until Saya comes out.
Nothing too exciting. Continuing my KanColle nendo collection, Alter Raibus, Stronger K-ONs, FAGs and some Strike Witchy goodness.
Pic related just came in. Post manga libraries.
Any strayan fag here?
Is out custom that lazy? I've just received this https://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/37/51/040030375131.html and I didn't get any coppers knocking on my door.
I'd like to try it the second time but I'm really playing with fire right?
>no chainmail skirt mesh
ughh so close, I guess you could mod it in though. Still tempting.
Scratch that, I guess it's the new rathian armor not the old version so it's fine. Now the question is who's the best to preorder from...
>tfw you've had to cut back on your buyfagging.
Woke up to another denied payment. Canceled my orders and called my bank again before re-ordering. This fraud protect shit is really pissing me off... my expected ship date somehow got shoved back a month as well...
Show me your
god-tier quality figures.
Best Sin.Worth every penny(even with the shitty exchange rate).
I love the detail on the pocky/ice cream/whipped cream/strawberries.The face is perfect.Hate the dick pop,but I it can be removed.They went all out on this.
Here is more detail without the figure.I love it.
I seem to remember mine being 14k on Yellow Submarine a week or so ago. She's not ridiculous but she was forced EMS, probably because of how the DX body is packaged.
Almost worth it for the base alone, really.
Just some nendo's while keeping an eye out for some pre-owned scales.
Anyone know if Plamax plans to release these kits for other girls? I love the size of the ship, and the 1/20 girl scales really well with tons of other model stuff
>TFW no 1/20 Musashi to command my dieselpunk robots.
I'm about to get this for $11 from China. Will it look decent? Or will it look retarded?
This is why I don't use Rakuten, I've bought from them 3 times and all 3 times they kept charging me thousands of dollars instead of converting the yen to USD. I'd rather pay extra from somewhere else.
Or you can start with semi-lewd until you can move out. I actually started buying Nendoroids because I was uncomfortable having half naked Cattleya smothering her son with her tits on my desk for my family to see, but a nendoroid Cattleya is perfect.
Are these kits more akin to gunpla in terms of how much paint and work they need, or are they like regular naval kits that are slabs of single color plastic and need tons of paint and putty?
Mostly jointshit since I'm a borderline poorfag, so my list is fairly long
at 140k yen, my order for this month alone has more stuff than that entire image so I don't want to clog the thread or make a clusterfuck picBut this girl is what I'm most looking forward to.
Huke's Saber Alter looks nice. Nipponyasan might get more of my money yet.
I really like the assault lilys, but I don't like the weapons very much. Still, I've got my eye on her grumpy blonde sister. She looks very cute.
I feel exactly the same. Usually the weapons just stay in the box. I mainly got into them because I started with Shinkis and then started to dress them up, so I figured I might as well start getting actual dolls.
Shion will always be the best
More or less the same (except I have bjds too) so I already have some 1/12 clothes.
I only have this girl who I really like and one of the custom types. I still think the picco neemo bodies are quite weak in comparison to shinks or FAGs though, even though they're more poseable than FAGs at least.
Does anyone know Koto's release schedule and when this slutterfly gets released?
just bought this for 3.8k A/B on Ami. Anyone have her? Seemed like a great price if she's sealed.
I want to get the other yuris, but I don't want to get a summer job so they will have to wait.
>You own the only figure in the world of your waifu. No other copy can ever be made.
>Your waifu becomes real, but no figures of her will ever exist.
You're totally allowed to sell the figure
BRS might be the stupidest anime I've ever seen, but I love the character designs, especially Dead Master.
Is this a good buy?
>Not with you
Then it's not your waifu
well, waifudom is pretty one-sided, not like all those waifu have ever answered "yes"
>you don't seem to understand
sorry anon, but it still is one sided and it is a shame, you seemed an honest man
but going by that reasoning, you just have a "figure" of you're waifu, an object can't love you back thus the relationship remains one sided.
now, don't get me wrong, I do have a waifu too, but lets not fool ourselves, our waifu won't ever love us back.
I want a yearly national tournament of fists to proclaim/defend your waifu. Even the most niche can at least have 2 participants.
