Sorry to ask again, but is this about her only decent figure with her wearing her regular clothing?
What is the top 3 figures that you wanted to get, but you still haven't, just because that you were buying more important stuff and weren't your priority, but still you want to get those figures down the road?
Pic not related
Don't have a list of three but I really wish I had the money available to pick her up.
Alter's second Aegis and FREEing's Marie. Wasn't collecting when Aegis released and my dumbass convinced myself Marie was too expensive so I didn't pre-order her. Sure regret that one.
A shame since she's a nice semen demon.
Also I knew Koto's Hestia was getting cheap but I didn't know she hit 4600 yen.
Hopefully, so I don't have to spend as much money as the idiots that pre ordered her.
Alter's Yuri Lowell and Rita Mordio I really want them but I keep keeping myself from pulling the trigger.
If it can expose ye olde film then it's too much light. Keep to a dim setting using only low energy photons.
It's not bad but I think they released too many, too quickly.
pic related. eventually.
$13 is a lot?
I thought it's usually $8-$15 on average for small packet shipping a figure.
It's nowhere near as bad as other places, pic related.
FYI, this figure was only 1.115kg but apparently they add .8 kg in packaging.
Mostly for getting merchandise based on characters that I like. I buy a lot of nendo too and sometimes I buy those and cannibalize them for parts.
A transparent plastic rod
a clear plastic rod that fits into a square-shaped hole on her hand and on the back of avalon
pretty funny to see a rerelease 6 or 7 years later, this is the fig that got me into buyfagging to begin with
10/7/09. I was in college with a shitty part time job back then, this was so much money to me
>pretty funny to see a rerelease 6 or 7 years later, this is the fig that got me into buyfagging to begin with
you clearly mentioned a re-release, this a new re-release after 4 years
as if we weren't to buy all six
So Phat finally put one of their boatsluts up for preorder?
Shame about that price.
>14k anime bux
She looks really good, but damn is she expensive.
The glasses that come with figma that have them are awful, you wouldn't want them
You're not a fujo though.
I can't see these not binning. They'll be those types of figmas that you'll see for $15 each at an anime convention in a few years. And that won't even be counterfeits, they'll be real. I'm certain of it.
I'm not a fujo, but I do want to fug the matsus
They just look bad translated into 3d. The nendos will probably look better but still bad, with few faceplates and accessories due to them all being released at the same time; a problem with making figures of them is that companies probably feel inclined towards making all 6 of them at the same time, sacrificing quality. The very simplistic design looks better in 2d.
Where can I get mousepads? I didn't see them anywhere in the OP guide.
Look for any of this on mandarake/yajp
Yamashita's EVA girls are one of the nicest art pieces out there, unfortunately Yamato isn't the best at QC and if I remember correctly there's minor issues with paint flaking over time.
I kind of want to see what would happen if they fixed ALL of the anatomy. It'd be bonerific no doubt, but then all of that Raita charm would be gone. Like CLAMP without the noodles.
She's currently 9580 B/B in AmiAmi right now if anyone's interested.
So, amico fucked up my order and sent me a pack of straps instead of a pack of trading figures. I emailed them about it but the figures are out of stock already so should I expect a refound instead of the trading figures?
Contact Amazon support. They don't allow bootlegs as far as I know. I'm sure they'll have a nice word with Santa. I was asking for a link so I could check out the product page. Completely gone eh?
Buy character goods for things you already like, provided it's something that still gets them produced.
I haven't finished more than one series in nearly two years now and still have a bunch of shit on pre-order.
When will manda remove those credit card restriction areas?
10 inches wide. That's too wide for amiami. It's forced EMS for sure. Ordering her from HS then. Sucks because BIJ and Amiami prices are cheaper, but for sure forced ems is 2k more and not worth it.
It's so stupid that they have no square boxes. Same with BIJ. That box would have nearly 5 inches of room on length side of their biggest SAL box. And their biggest SAL box isn't even the limit size for SAL. If they had a square box it would have 2 inches of room on every side, more than enough. The only 1/7 sized figures that are too large for SAL are ones with huge bases like Chachamaru, or GSC Tsukihi.
But looking at it right now. It's 12,800 on GSC. And 10600 on HS.
That means if you combine it with something else you're going to order from them, like Huke Saber, then you're basically getting Lily for the same price as Hobby search SAL, but you get EMS. I think I will do that. Lily will probably be about 14k from amiami.
Instantly regretting ordering Snek from amiami. I think I will cancel her.
So its been 2 months since you guys predicted that yen is going to tank.
Why are you all full of shit? How fucking long do i have to wait?
Only this one comes to mind.
I'm also afraid of getting a... old figure, I guess. I heard of problem with fading colors and stuff. A re-release would be the best thing.
What are the chances this gets a rerelease? I don't want to pay $100+ for a nendoroid.
Debatable, I'd say. Though I can see where you're coming from.
Now that I saw these side by side, it's tempting.
Compared to the rest and sons Ichi just looks like he's offering a sacrifice.
>tfw just opened shiteatinggrin-chan months after owning them
I miss the old days when I started buyfagging, excitedly looking at the shipping status while waiting for the packages, then freeing the figures from their plastic prison the very day I receive them.
Is this what it's like to be old?
How can you hold the urge to open it right away?
I don't buy a lot of figs, but I can't wait to open one that just arrived. It might be because customs here usually takes months, and my country's economy is so shit that makes everything more expensive.
Any anons have any irrationalities when it comes to buyfagging?
For me I am extremely stingy with my spending on figures and other merch but when it comes to crane machines they eat all my money.
I was referring to that particular choconot-elf. Very few of Muramasa's figures have appealed to me, and the facial sculpt combined with comparatively subtle sexiness of that one get me best.
I pretend my dollar is worth more than it is and ignore the cost of shipping entirely when roughly estimating the price of orders. I then foot whatever figure I get when Amico comes to collect.
I'm very easily pressured.
Even if I'm not 100% on a figure if I think it has limited stock or is liable to shoot up in price I grab in in a split second.
Conversely even if I REALLY like something and I know it's not going anywhere I put it on the backburner.
GSC Karen and Tsukihi Araragi. Haven't got them because they're expensive as fuck and I'm currently out of a job. Only need those to have one of every Monogatari girl.
Also want the Kaiji figma, only figma I've ver considered getting
>place order on amazon jp
>try free trial expediting shipping
>8 hours after I made the order it arrives at the forwarder
WHAT IS THIS NIPPON SORCERY
Not quite a top 3, but generally anything else belonging to the same set as figures I already own. I love having full sets but often can't justify actually buying figures when it'd really be more for the set than for the figure or character. Still, they're always in the back of my mind for trying to collect if I get the opportunity.
I love zuiho, but I'm not sure I'm into this sculpt, not for 200 CAD plus shipping.
Time to spend 5.5K even though I only want one of them.
Got the Noble Witches vol. 4 LE with the drama CD, and this JSDF air force 60th anniversary DVD narrated by Yoshika and Mio.
Was hoping for something like this, to be honest.
Oh, in that case I agree...its a very good rendition. I'm a sucker for the more full bodied form of Arshes Nei, or other BASTARD!!! Females, overall. To each their own though.
I do it for mai waifu.
Seriously, is there any other legitimate reason? You're just pissing money away for something nobody except you will look at, and even then you'll just glance at it every so often.
Got my Chaika today after anons convinced me it was worth a buy.
She looks great.
Really happy about it, didn't even care that I had to pay import fees (which I forgot about).
>If you can't fuck it
Not with that attitude.
Actually Tokyodoll does dutch waifu, so u can get fuckable parts for it
She's got everything I look for in a figure. Dynamic pose, nice stand, actually looks in-character.
The price is a shame, though. But I'll definitely save the image and hunt for her in the Akiba resale market the next time I go there.
Ohh, show collection please.
Already up on Amiko.
Hey buyf/a/g, I don't come here as much as I used to but I have to move unexpectedly due to family illness, and my figs probably can't come with me.
I haven't priced up all my stuff or even fully decided if I want to part with all of it, but I have some random shitty figs that I'd be happy to give off to you guys for basically free(you pay shipping).
PLEASE only respond if you truly want the fig and will display it etc. I'm trying to give back here. First come first serve. US only unless you really insist on paying international shipping. I'm in CA. Everything I own is without damage and without hot glue.
Feel free to look at my MFC if you're curious but as I warned I have not yet priced anything there.
This also probably means I'll never be back, at least for a very long time, I'll miss you faggots ;_; [email protected]
Forgot to mention, pic related in the post are the random shitty figs up for giveaway.
Forgot that too insolus @ MFC
so? previous one was like that and she was still amazing.
I realized that I'll never be able to afford a vacation since as soon as I have a large sum of money something shit happens in my life that I have to spend that money on, and either way I don't really have any friends who'd want to go on vacation with me... at least not somewhere I'd want to go.
So I figured, fuck it. If I have money, I'm going to spend it now on things that makes me happy. And filling my apartment with things that make me happy makes me feel a lot better than having money I know is just gonna end up on something boring I don't really want to pay for.
i enjoy the collection aspect as well as decoration and owning merchandise of my favorites. I dont buy manga very much anymore and never bought dvds or brs so I like to have something around of the things I like. Looking at my small but well loved collection fills me with feelings of a very simple pleasure.
Only one that I really wanted super bad was the 2007 Alter Aigis. I had her preordered for months, I don't remember from where, but it kept getting delayed and delayed, and finally when she came out I was in no position to get her. Still the best Aigis, I think.
Still mad after all these years.
i have that same succubus but my base is black and says samurai girls. I think the box is legit but idk. Looks identical. sorry for potato.
>that fucking price
My Hanyuu feels lonely.
>there are people like this in this very thread and they're not just baiting.
I like collecting things and displaying them. I still buyfag manga, anime, and vidya, just to have them on my shelf. I have lots of spehs ships too, and have bought several bookshelves just for these. If there was some practical way for me to display the many thousands of pics I save from the internet I'd do it. The only thing that keeps me from going crazy buying everything is because I have some high standards, particularly for plastic animu butts.
I'm buying a designated hotgluing fig to bully with my dick and there is nothing you can do to stop me
I'm at the point where I am needing to move out... just to get more room for bookshelves. I bought two more shelves in the past year to hold my mango collection. It feels quite good.
Amazon is usually pretty good about things like this. Shoot them the picture of the official one and the one you received. If that doesn't pan out go to your credit card company. You didn't received the item you paid for and most cards cover such circumstances under fraud protection.
I have half a mind to buy a giant bean bag chair to sleep in, get rid of my bed, and use that wall space for more shelves. I guess I could move my bed to the middle of the room and get the same effect though...and I wouldn't lose the storage space under the bed either.
I got some super cheap (like $20) three shelf bookshelves on Amazon. I don't want to have to haul them when I move, so I got some shelves that I can easily dispose of when I find a new permanent residence. I want to get some nice, real wood shelves eventually.
Personally I would never go above three shelves with those IKEA self-assemble bookcases. The materials just don't seem sturdy enough to me.
>It's only a 2k prize, let's add it to the monthly order.
>It's only a 3k nendo, let's add it to the monthly order.
>It's only a...
Are you me? Now that I have a job and stable income I fall for this much more. Especially when I order from manda. "They are going to rape me with shipping anyway; I might as well add more things so it's worth it.
>The materials just don't seem sturdy enough to me.
MDF/particle-board gets a bad rap and it's not all created equal. While I do get hardwood for serious furniture that will get constantly stressed (tables, beds, chairs, etc.), billy bookcases are quite suitable for heavy books. I've seen encyclopedia collections on them before with no sagging. If you're worried you can always brace them for a bit more support.
Literally same, anon. "It's not worth paying EMS if I don't add a couple more things..." Having money is scary some times.
she likes it
Despite spending way more on figures because figures are expensive as fuck, when it comes to buying art books I just keep adding shit to my cart and then suddenly realize I'm already at 30k because I find so many books I want for cheap. Then I say it'll make the shipping worth it. I also buy lots of the cheaper stuff so I feel like I'm spending less per book when factoring in the fact that I've got a lot of expensive ones in the cart. So basically dividing the cost per book rather than taking them at actual value to make myself feel less bad about the purchase. Almost a quantity over quality thing, except the cheaper books I feel are actually worth the money and things I've wanted like some doujin or manga.
This is my exact logic with books. No single book is ever more than 2k, and so I just keep tossing shit into my cart and end up spending 50k. At least I get good shipping rates?
I would love to get a futon and sleep on the floor in the middle of my room, for that very same reason. It would push me into dangerous levels of weebdom though.
I had a tall one as a kid that was really shitty. It was tall and wide though, so I think it was just spreading the material too thin. The billy bookcases seem more narrow, so I can see how the material would hold up better.
>billy bookcases are quite suitable for heavy books.
No fucking way. I have a billy bookcase and it could not handle the weight of all my art books so I had to just take them out and now I've got a fucked up shelf. If it were manga or figures it's fine, but standard sized books and art books are a definite no.
>no figures anywhere
>sold out for years
>tried almost every conceivable website
>only Ebay China shit remains
>Literally paying 18K JPY for the same body 6 times and 2 different heads each
I honestly don't know what to tell you. I keep art books and comic anthologies on mine as well as some board games. They're doing fine despite my doubts.
I've seen other examples of even more crap forced onto billy book shelves with no obvious problems (pic related).
I haven't HAD to do this yet, but did it sag even after bracing?
I guess worst case scenario you could always go to lowes or home depot and grab some plywood.
I feel like an ikea shill but I saw this while looking for examples.
I personally think if your hobby is eating up your actual living space the slide down the slippery slope has hit rock-bottom.
I don't like this company
But this is the only good character in a shit anime
No. You're alone. If you don't find the product in your first search, it's gone forever. That's why figinstock went out of business after a week.
Nope. Only good things. Japs are anal about condition. I've gotten "brand new, sealed in box" things from Amazon or BBTS that were in worse condition than B/B shit from amiami.
It's only eating up living space because I have a single bedroom in which to store everything I own. I need to get off my ass and get a better job and a house of my own, but I'm a lazy son of a bitch and those bills would ruin my book-buying ability.
Bought a C/B item before which had a "Smell" to it. The person that owned it just kept it in a room with those like temple asian incense. Figure was perfectly fine other than that and the smell has gone away now.
>what's the point
To free up and repurpose space in tight living conditions. Same reason people get futons, pull-out sofas, daybeds, etc. People in major cities like New York and Tokyo have been dealing with the dilemma of studio/one-room apartments for years. Also useful if you have a house and use your guest room as an office or workspace when no one is visiting.
I have a futon in my basement and a pull-out sectional in my living room mostly for friends who are too shitfaced to make it home after drinking.
I would only get one if I needed to be able to get the bed completely out of the way for company coming over. At that point I would probably also have a fold-away table to use during the day, then at night store that and put the bed back out. It's not something you would normally need if you have a decent sized house or apartment, but for places like a studio apartment it's actually the best way to make use of your space.
You know what? Fuck it. I don't care if it's bootleg, I need waifu merch. I will purchase carefully.
Why the fuck did they make them in their shitty uniforms instead of the colored hoodies? They don't even have any accessories.
I hope the nendos will be better.
>rakuten order arrives right after last shipment
Sakura and Frau are used/opened. But they're in great condition.
No, I ordered it because
the strap cuts into her tits just right.
Ordered pic related recently. My first garage kit. Just hope I'm up for the task of painting it.
>cant find pic related anywhere
I search every day, gks can be hard to find.
I love seeing people saying they bought their first garage kit and talk about painting. I want to see the look on their face when they realize how hard it is to prepare a kit for painting.
Dont mind as its the only figure of her thats lv0 it looks like. Already have the lv4 and will pre-order the lv5 even if it looks like shit. Its my grail for the shrine.
For what it's worth, I broke down and preordered.
Zuiho a cute, and the sculpt looks really good and dynamic, like the yuudachi kai ni one due in October. I didn't pick up poi because I have no real attachment to her, but zuiho is my fucking waifu so I had no choice.
>that old-fashioned reading corner
nice, but it still lacks some accessories
