I just went in for a DD Dy Miko. Shell be my first BJD so Im looking forward to the customization aspect. I plan to leave her stock for a little bit before I buy her some new hair and clothes.

What are some good spots for clothes that fit dddys?

I want to keep the clothes fairly simple and light colored to reduce staining.

None of mine are particularly difficult to get, I just don't seem to be in the right "fuck everything I must have this" mindset to jump on them the few times they've become available Right now though it's this beauty, Wing's non-bunny Muramasa and maybe a nice Cat Lap or MF's Cerberus. I can't justify the price for Cat Lap and oddly find myself flip flopping on Cerberus though.

I can't see. Post a larger image. Now that is properly illuminated your photo capturing device should have no issues producing an image free of grain.

Might need light coming from the front. Their faces look dark. But it might look fine in person. In any case their sides are receiving a lot more light.

I have autism so the visible cords are distracting. If it isn't possible to drill a hole through the metal rods to run them through then at least pull them taut or see if you can get some aesthetically pleasing runners to put them through.

HobbyJapan exclusive. Made to order. Everyone who gave up their pre-order was quickly snatched. She will be about 1.75x her original price immediately following release. A month later her price will settle a little above the original retail price. Not long afterwards it will become extremely difficult to find.

I am looking forward to seeing James post at minimum 3-4 pictures of her + however many relevant questions or comments he receives. He won't run out and you will be able to see what he has left in reserve by checking out his twitter or MFC page.

Check out the Shinki thread, it's all kind of amalgamated. The ass on Materia isn't great, but she's mostly a source for the unarmored arms and legs (Materia - Material. You use her as material for other FAGs.)

But she's cheap and available, so if you're not sure about the line, get her. And if you really want to get into the line, you'll want at least one of her at some point, so get her then, too. Also, there's a slutty tan version.

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 in pic related that I'd be happy to give off to you guys for basically free(you pay shipping). Crossed out figs were claimed in the last thread.

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 ;_;

Azone's been doing things different lately by running small batches multiple times. Some of the customs will go out of stock for a week or so and them come back. Maybe that'll happen here? Or it was just a really small batch to test the waters on older girls?

Also, it's shocking to me how much the price has been shooting up on the older ones. I thought 6k was a good price when I found Aoi, but the last few figinstocks have been close to double that for the older girls.

I'm tired of boxes period. I'm running out of places to put them where they aren't an eyesore so I'm either going to have to take things out of the boxes, sell stuff, or have my closet made into a small black hole like it isn't one already.

Six times.

She does not seem safe for work in the first place. She is not wearing many clothes.

Anybody else buy 2 of the same daki so they can have a backup?
>>
>>138764360
Like a bugout bag? I also had friends offer to store them for me, but the thing is a ton of major things are changing in my life right now so I've basically made the decision to adopt minimalism. I'll be moving at least twice in the coming months and already have a ton of other stuff I have to lug around. I want to shed the extra hassle and the extra cash would be very useful as well right now.

I like your thinking though.
>>
>>138764614
You have too much faith in people. Fujos are bound to eat it up.
>>
>>138764655
If you actually cared about the boxes, and were planning on doing that, you'd need to rent storage with climate control or the cardboard could get ruined. And that shit is expensive considering what you're storing.
>>
>>138764374
What daki cover is this?
>>
>>138764690
Go give them to some homeless people or niggers and tell them how much they are worth. I like the image of them going around trying to sell plastic anime tits.
>>
>>138764614
Don't worry. They will. 2 out of 5 of amiami's most viewed overall are them. 4 out of 5 of the general figures are them.
>>
>>138764618
That's actually not a terrible idea. I'm not going to sell most of these ever so I still wish they were easier to store sans packaging. If there was even a way to collapse the blister along with the boxes that'd be great.
>>
>>138764473
>>138764655
You saw how many figures mamitan has right? She rents a storage unit to keep all her boxes. Insane. She doesn't even sell many of her figures either from what it seems.

The boxes don't irritate me. What irritates me is the blisterpacks. That's the problem. I have an extra spare room with a full closet completely maxed out with figure boxes. About 250 figures.

My strategy now is to throw away blister packs of expensive items.

If I ever feel like selling, it's much easier to sell an expensive item without a blister pack than to sell a cheap one. I just flatten the box and if someone wants to buy it I'll probably fill it with paper and peanuts or just sell it locally. Just too many boxes and they're not even worth the price of keeping them.

>>
>>138764812
I don't think you can sell for full value without the blister pack. Figures that are boxless go for at least 40% off. You'd also lose out on people who would refuse to purchase an item without the blister-pack.

scalpers and autists snapped her up and are charging an arm an a leg for it now, only a couple months after it released so there's no way I can get it without paying 140+ dollars, since I checked ebay about 5 minutes ago end every listing is either a chinese bootleg or at least 140

the guide doesn't cover it
it released, autists and scalpers snapped it up
there's no more, I have to buy from a re-seller at ebay or other auction sites at this point and pay their outrageous price if I want one
unless they re-release and fat chance of that happenning

Nah too many daki to buy. My waifu is popular. In fact I just got one today. By the time I retire one there's already a new one to buy.

- She's crying because she knows she's about to get bullied -

Swimsuit dakimakura made out of aqua lycra is pretty genius. Whoever thought of making swimsuit dakimakura out of swimsuits is a kingly otaku.
>>138765013
If the figure is popular enough and out of stock people will pay more and it's easier to find a buyer. In my experience, 40% off is only if you need money quick and the figure is easy to buy elsewhere.

If I tried to sell something like GSC shinobu, ya it'd be pretty tough to get above $90 for it. There's lots of sellers. But if I sold my Wing Hana I doubt I'd have much trouble getting $400+ for her even without the box.
>>
>>138764614
The price they're asking is fucking stupid. It's literally the same simple body, it costs fucking nothing for them to be made. I wouldn't pay more than ten bucks for one but idiots will support it, anyways.

I like the exclusivity and rareness of it too, but when someone buys shit in bulk, and sells them more than double, sometimes triple the price as it was originally, that's just fucked.
If was at most $50-60 more, I wouldn't have as much of a problem with it, but these prices get extremely high, it's so dumb.

It's not him because it doesn't actually hurt people. Scalpers, in the truest sense, are when people buy an item with limited quantities with the express purpose of reselling it. An actual scalper causes an item to become sold out faster and most importantly, takes an item away from someone who would have been able to buy it if not for retail.

This is not the case with toy 'scalpers' who resell the item months or years after its release for a higher price - since that is what it's now worth.

For an example of actual scalping, check the Red Nendoroid eBay prices. These people bought an item that sold out solely so they could resell it, screwing someone that wanted it out of it and forcing them to pay a higher price. Not scalping is the Tomoko Nendoroid. Her price is high because no one bought her at time of release. No one got screwed out of a purchase because someone bought her to sell her later, she just became valuable because of low quantity.

I was more talking in general. I'm not a monogatari fag so I don't know enough about this figure. Did preorders sell out? If not, then it's 'you snooze you lose,' definitely. Otherwise, you can probably call it scalping.
>>
>>138767751
That doesn't make any sense
If someone's buying in bulk to sell at double price later, how is snoozing at fault?

If the product didn't sell out, then his actions had no effect on you. Buyfags seem to think that anyone selling something at any point for a dime over the lowest price it's ever been counts as scalping.

Oh, so it IS the scalper's fault if the item didn't sell out and you didn't act fast enough to get your preorder in? Just because someone used a fallacy, that doesn't mean the argument is invalidated, numb nuts. If the item didn't sell out, it is a clear cut case of you not acting fast enough and the scalper did not directly or indirectly harm you by buying with the intent to resell. It is literally that simple.

>>138767709
Scalping is ONLY defined as resellers affecting the market through artificial inflation by affecting the availability of a product. Using it in any other context is stupid. That only works with a limited number of products. Preorders are for the most part (probably 99%+) not limited by the amount of products. So you can buy 10,000 and they will just make 10,000 + however many more customers buy it.

The people complaining about scalping are doing it unironically in threads like the Alter Lala, which had a limited preorder window. They missed the window and people were reselling it for 3x the price. That has nothing at all to do with scalpers. No one is affecting the availability. It is just limited and they have to pay absurd market value. But the figure is market value, it's not artificially inflated. And from there all these retards keep saying scalper in every discussion for the past month and spreading it to even more retards. Anything over 1.2x original price on mfc has some retard calling out scalpers. It's like a toxic virus of stupidity.
>>
>>138768189
Super poseable almost always bin. I'm not preordering another one.
>>
>>138768500
The whole thing was me not knowing Japanese and only seeing English listings for 2x the cost of te figure pre-opened
But then it became a separate discussion about pro/anti scalpers and whether or not they're an issue
>>
>>138768546
Preorders are limited
The runs are defined before they take orders and when they're out they're out until they make a new run

So scalpers are as real here as they are at sporting events
>>
>>138768546
>And from there all these retards keep saying scalper in every discussion for the past month and spreading it to even more retards.

>>

We were having this discussion as a separate one to your ignorant question because you mentioned scalping incorrectly. You buying a figure that's 2x the market value because of ignorance isn't scalping. That's just stupidity.

Idk why I even came here anyways, I can't buy anything sonce I got smacked with card fraud a while back and I won't have a stable enough income to start buying hobby shit for another year or two, so it's moot, any figure I see now is gonna be 200-300 by that time anyways so I'm better off not even seeing them
>>
>>138768615
And where did you pull this dumb shit from?

Source?

Retail stores take preorders in order to gauge how much product they buy from the distributor. Distributors then tell manufacturers how many to make. Figures are made up until even the month of release. Distributor preorders close about 1.5 months -2 months after announcement. Figure production has already started by the time the announcement is made, but the end limit isn't determined until the distributor closes orders. And even then they can extend the duration of production as they often do with popular preorders. You're full of shit.
>>
>>138768722
This is bad logic, consumer products are to be sold to consumers, not companies looking to buy in bulk the first second they go on sale

If this was true, no individual would be able to buy anything over the flood of companies looking to resell
Effort should be put in to protect individual consumers because they are the target audience

They come in runs of so many thousand
Just like art prints, to maintain rarity that you autists love so much they would never just make more because it would devalue the figures that people who has them before are getting

It's not like preordering a lamp, most of the value of these figures is in the rarity, so take that away and who's gonna buy them?

So they can't just make more, if they hit their limit in preorders, they hit their limit, end of story

The figure's total supply isn't limited by the number of products.

The figure's total supply is limited by the window of production.

This means that anyone who wants to buy the figure can, no matter how many scalpers buy it. The only way that doesn't happen is if the manufacturer closes the window prematurely. Even this situation has nothing to do with scalpers because scalpers cannot force the manufacturer to close the window. And manufacturers are not limited by their production capability and have no reason to close the window early other than to increase demand for a figure.

You can see this exemplified by the most insanely popular figures still being overproduced and ending up sitting on store shelves. They sit there because the retailers see the amount of preorders and order more from the distributor than the number of preorders they estimate they will have. This is because they think they can sell those figures over a long period of time. Also, those figures will sell even if they discount them and this will encourage people to buy more figures.

So there is no fucking possible way that even the most popular figures can bargain bin and have scalpers actually be able to buy out more supply than production can handle.

Scalpers can buy out every ticket in a stadium. GSC can make enough seats in that stadium that every single person in the whole city can have one. And that's why scalping is the wrong word to use to explain frustration at not buying your figure in time.

And then you'll add, b-but... anon there are second releases of figures all the time.

That's because they assume the first release of figures will sell out and there will be increasing demand for more figures after production is over and after the retailers have underestimated sales.

Got my payment request for my March order. Amico still hasn't realized that she has yet to split Caster from my February order. I haven't contacted her to request a split. I feel sorry for my Flandre Fumo. Stuck in a warehouse for so long.

I had to update my credit card info and now amiami has to recalculate shipping cost because of that. So, my wait continues. I hope yours ship soon, anon.

Create sale pages for them on MFC, then post that your selling the figure in the comments section of said figure's MFC page. It's the fastest way to sell figures, well if you sell them for a decent price.

>>138777526
Yeah, i'm doing that right now.
[/spoiler]I guess my prices are pretty ok.[/spoiler]

Remember when they said Figfix will be inexpensive....now, that pricing and worse still, GSC webshop exclusives.

Hello, fellow fags

Can anyone tell me if two way tricot is good material for a daki?
I've only had standard peach skin, but I wouldn't mind upgrading to something softer.

Also: anyone else working on itabags?
I already had two planned out but now it looks like I'm going to be working on a third.

>tfw already spent ¥18000 on a hard to find figure and some merch on a husbando you've only known for two weeks
>be still my heart

I'm deciding on buying a dakimakura. For the ones who already have one, what's ur opinion about it? I don't care about what ppl will say and shit, but i don't know if it's really worth it.

Just do it, man, it's worth it, trust me.
I bought a full sized bed just to have room for a few dakis.

It's comfy, and going to sleep hugging your waifu/husbando is great

>>138779129
Shit, okay, sorry, I haven't been here in a while and it didn't even occur to me...

Just ordered this.

First figma, hopefully its good.

It's just a smaller and less detailed scale so don't expect any more than that.

Help me /a/.

What does this mean?
Has it already been shipped and the order is waiting to be retrieved at the nearest mail office?
Or could it still be being shippe?
>>
>>138779230
I believe that means it's been shipped. What supplier are you using that they didn't give you a tracking code?

They gave me a tracking code, but it says not found, both on my country's postal service website and on track17.net.

I'm using anime dakimakura pillow.net's airmail delivery.
