read the guide first.
The Last One prize wasn't too bad. I was a bit stupid and bought her soon after the lottery happened so she was probably more expensive than she is now. I think I paid about 9500yen for her with shipping.
We should have started with this one
What is the worst bootleg you have ever seen?
>order EMS shipping
>package is still stuck in nippon after 2 days
Post pre orders.
I have the Gochiusa guide book ordered too
I don't think much would have changed in the past week. Here is what people posted on the 13th. So you can see to satisfy your need.
I think people should still be able to post theirs. Those who don't want to see can make use of recursive filtering and hiding stubs.
>I like laughing at people that have neckbeards, and wear fedoras and trench coats.
Thats what you get for being a faggot and attentionwhoring your preorders in every thread.
Fucking loser, tell us about your adventurous side faggot.
One of my figures (from Kotobukiya) arrived with various manufacturing defects and like the stupid idiot newfag piece of shit I am I told myself it's fine and I'll just deal with it.
So now it's well past the return window, should I buy another of the figure? I know it's super bad value but I like the character a lot. What do you think?
I'm a sucker for bandai's stupid figures like these, but damn is this thing expensive for what it is.
Miku EXPO goodies arrived with 3 pins. I'm pure hype.
Who's going to the New York show?
I'm not an expert but I think that's how it is.
I got it for $50. Unfortunately it's because the figure started leaning(something that seems to be a big issue with Embrace Japan figures) a bit and the fact that the window on the box has a hole. The person who sold it gave me a stand for her though and other than the leaning the figure itself is in great condition. That being said it's still look good and isn't the best looking figure but was worth what I paid for.
>calling a LL fig superior
That's some shit taste you've got there anon
I bought the deluxe or limited version but I honestly don't ever really intend to use it. I think it looks best clothed. It's also my only lewd figure.
This doesn't look as good as the Dark Elf.
Had me until this pic.
That belly looks like a young boys.
It's a new style that recently caught on pretty big in the last two years. Almost all jpop idol companies are using it, and it's starting to feel really generic already. They're called king blades. I already have 6 and I'm not super thrilled about em anymore. They're pretty high quality, but since everyone is using them for souvenirs it feels like a complete lack of diversity.
Can't wait to see Alter's Love Laika and Triad Primus.
Also, unsure if I should hop on Alter's Edna from Tales of Zestiria because of pic related
That's a lot of moon dollars
It's my first time holding one. It's really light, and fragile. This one has 6 colors for each Vocaloid.
he also makes funny shit.
She always has several figures in the progress pipeline. I think there may be a market for her. So many nice prize figures. Even high-end manufacturers are producing her.
Not since her much HEALTHIER sister replaced her.
Even most fujos on mfc have moved on to collecting porkchop.
Porkchop nendo soon right?
I'm pretty excited about Garden of Avalon, glorious after-image and Alice by Native.
I would love to have Edna on my PO list but I just want to have the months after August to be free of preorders just in case Alter brings the Love Laika and Triad Primus out around that time so I don't end up with 3+ scales a month like what I have set right now. Not saying I haven't saved/can't afford what I have going now, it just personally seems a little excessive to have that much coming in monthly.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but amiami usually runs a second preorder window closer to a figure's release date so I may still have a chance, right?
It's mostly that pieces breaking during shipment is extremely common and there is nothing youc an do yourself to avoid it, you just gotta hope it gets to you safely. So many people who bought that crazy expensive Guts figure that that colossal titan one received broken pieces.
Gosh anon, you're making me blush.

If nobody else rips it before I receive mine, I'll do so.
I apologise for the double post and the long link. Every link shortener I try gets blocked for spam.
Why is your taste so fucking
>Shame the cleric's or whatever
Paladin? If they were going for an air of grace with a dash of style they hit it perfectly but the pose is boring as shit. I wish they'd gone with a position more in line with Dark Elf.
Right, Paladin. I don't think it's graceful with any style when she's not even standing straight with her head slightly tilting downward to the side and more of a standard standing up sword pose. Everyone else's pose is pretty dynamic.
I am really excited for Teto. I love her. Amico will ship her soon. Yay.
>Pre owned is more expensive then new
She's got her head tilted slightly off to the side with her hair blowing in the wind while she's paused mid classy lady not-slut walking. It's not a traditional swordswoman stance but really more like one you'd expect from a noble; imagine her with a cane or umbrella instead of the sword and you'll see it. I feel like something with her arms spread like she was about to embrace your sins

Still waiting on two things to throw money at, but at this point it looks like the latter half of the year will be smooth sailing in the buyfag arena.
Not mine, but I thought it was a smart place to hide stuff from prying eyes if it's unplugged. Definitely wouldn't think of a fridge for doujins

Why do artists do this? Are they constantly ashamed of their own work? There's so many amazing artists that just delete their work or their entire Pixiv accounts for seemingly no reason.
>Are they constantly ashamed of their own work?
Put simply, yes. They might be trying to get a real job that frowns upon that sort of thing or something along those lines. Or it could just be that they feel ashamed that they drew porn. I dated a girl who cam whored for a while, and every so often she'd get the "why the fuck am I getting naked for strangers?" bug and delete everything only to start up again a few weeks later.
We broke up, don't worry.
>They might be trying to get a real job that frowns upon that sort of thing
its japan you faggot also no one will give a shit what you do in your free time in any country you cuck
Anyone here gone through this process?
What does being illegal in Canada even mean?
You act like they're a sovereign country with their own set of laws or something.
It's just Canada. I'm sure if you break a "law" you can just apologize or pretended you didn't know it was "illegal".
Vampi is shipping soon. I want to peek up her skirt and gaze into her eyes! Not at the same time.
A lot of artists also get frustrated by westerners taking their art and reposting it. I've known a couple artists who have wiped their accounts/sites (to remake later) in an effort to get English speakers to leave their art alone.
All three are bad for it.
J-List should know better being a company, but it's primary target are retarded weeaboos and faggots. Wilt Tumblr and Twitter being filled with retard weeaboo faggots, I guess it's not surprising.
Tumblr and Twitter are filled with epeen fuckers who get off at seeing their follower count go up by any means necessary. It's not about weebs it's about what's gonna get you followers
>naked bootleg versions of a clothed non cast off figures
Do people really need lewd this much?
LEWD IS LIFE LEWD IS LOVE AND FUCK YOU TOO
Would you publicly display a bootleg?
If I got it for free and was famously terrible, like Sader, probably. Otherwise, not in a million years. Might be fun to watch one melt though
I know your pain. Texas is one of the worst for importing adult goods, let alone loli
Well I've never actually had a problem with imports or anything. I just saw a map
on redditthat said even looking at loli online can get you arrested here.
I don't know if it's actually true or not though. People say a lot of things that aren't true about my state after all.
If you had the ability and the 3D printing hardware, would you make your own figurines?
Muh southern values or something like that. Having a picture of Illya in a swimsuit can be deemed bad enough depending on who wants to press charges. It's more of a if they happen to see it you're fucked, but don't completely go out looking for it
Pic related is enough for trouble
That's more an issue with the way the maker packages the polystone than with the polystone itself.
I have probably twenty polystone pieces at this point and not a single one has arrived damaged in any way despite some being very pointy or spire-filled.
No problems with coldcast figures either.
Have you ever met some really gung-ho person who insists they know everything even though children can tell it's wrong? Who holds a very narrow morality that leaves absolutely no room for anyone who doesn't act in one specific way deemed "appropriate" by them and thinks that the entire country/world should be forced to follow that?
95% of Texas is like that. They are the worst state of the USA and absolutely no one likes them outside of Texans themselves.
>want to buy some dumb shit for 400 yen
I have to find other junk to buy to make the shipping worth it
>I did it.
Good for you, a new marketplace is always nice to try out.
>>CREDIT CARD PAYMENT COMPLETE
Good for you having some money, hopefully not spending credit you don't have.
>>it was actually a debit card, which they say they don't allow
Answers the above comment, also Visa/CC=styled debit cards work like prepaid credit cards to online retailers, so if there is money there is no problem.
>>and I'm in Texas
Retailers don't care wgere you are, they just have to say they do to cover their asses and maybe tax you.
Awesome. Manda is pretty good, I've found a lot of OOP doujins there, though still hunting a few. Getting tired of seeing unrelated stuff with similar names.
>Should I be worried?
Probably not until gets stuck in Customs (maybe) or some local postie decides to snoop on that furrin mail and bust your ass.
So wait, Texas is hasguns but anti-loli? Can I trade some of my loli rights for gun laws that are less retarded? California says my logic is sound but Australia is off chuckling in a corner.
It's still America. It's not like customs will magically care about checking your package when they sense loli. I don't think I've ever had a package inspected by customs in America.
>I don't think I've ever had a package inspected by customs in America.
I have once, had bright yellow tape on it that said it was inspected by customs. My reaction was to wave a flag, sing the Star Spangled Banner and proceed to fuck my shipment of TPE pussy while whistling Dixie. It was great.
Depends. Did you go through a private shipper or the postal service? You should be completely safe if it's a private shipper.
The postal service could search your mail and if they decide it upsets them they could turn it over to the police. This is actually pretty rare. But then the police have to make the decision to prosecute, which is also rare.
Basically, you have to be really really unlucky to get caught for loli in any place in the US. Most cases of "loli" that are prosecuted in the US also involved actual CP.
Koto going all out.
>>Try to convince them to sell online
I am attempting this right now- what did you do to try? This guy only has a twitter so I got a friend to translate and help me tweet at them, but doubtful they will respond.
That's how you end up like this.
To be honest, you have to do a bit of dicksucking. Shower them with praise or do some fanart of one of their characters. Anything to start a conversation between you and them.
That said your success with Twitter will be limited. Try to dig more for a pixiv.
Ya, no fucking joke. Look at the past 3 months of releases. It's all fucking shit. Moe got 3 or less products a month.
All these fujos were being bitches on mfc whining with obvious dumb shit like "they're not making less figures, they're just adding more figures for girls." What a shitty time for me to be right.
Are any Japanese places ever gonna start taking preorders on this? The company said that it wouldn't get restricted by rights issues like Yattarou was, but the release is supposedly in May yet the only places taking preorders are in Hong Kong and Singapore. I'm worried that the rights got screwed up at the last minute and that if I wait much longer I'll just miss out completely.
That's how I buy my GKs, but you can't find all of them there (someone has to buy and resell, or hope for unsold stock if they even do that) and some GKs sell for astronomical prices due to high demand.
wait so these aren't even from a series of some sort just "lolita" style? Almost 200k for some laser cut metal with a fancy handle that no one will have any attachment too from watching/playing/reading a series?
the reason I tried contacting the guy's twitter was because he is having a re-release it looks like and I never found it on yahoojp. What I mean is: if they cant sell it online due to trademark, couldnt they put them on yahoo jp as a seller to buy pass that if other people can anyway?
do anyone elses' thoughts default to buyfagging at pretty much all times? I don't daydream about the girls I could probably have a shot with in my classes, but plastic figures.
Post some figures you think about often, favorites, most anticipated preorders, etc.. basically what figure(s) have occupied your thoughts recently?
For me it's pic related, followed up by Alter Rei (laying down), and the Kokutens.
oh and EO Bushido, over all of those actually. I like to show off/share my collection in these threads. No one but me knows about the mountain of boxed PVC in my closet--much of which is loli.
You know whose dicks we don't ride often enough? Alphamax. Give praise to our soft overlords.
Was just thinking, how long do you guys wait to make a purchase after seeing something that you want?
I tend to wait at least a week or two so I don't buy on impulses but i'm guessing it's different for everyone,
if it shows up and its a harder to find item, right away to not miss it if its on a list.
pre-order only if its from a series that I greatly enjoyed or know after market will be high due to popularity.
Because shit-eating grins are a form of smugness.
I was a about to ask a question but then I read the guide. Thanks.
Living on the edge.
>Comparing prices for Picnic Nico
>Refresh Amiami tab
Should have preordered, damn.
>only one girl wearing winter
Other girls came with exclusive bonuses, but not winter uniform sleeves or summer uniform arms for akari.
Fucking dial it in stupid. They didn't give a fuck. Just wringing out their customers.
I bought two kyouko because I figured they wouldn't remedy this problem. But then she went up to $100 so I sold her and bought two Yui. Now I have 1 arm less Yui, which I have to keep because no one wants an armless Yui for reasonable price.
Ah that was very clear, but the rest of the girls come with character specific arms, like Yui holding pillow, and rum raison holding hand. But they're all right arms doing actions. So you have to have the girl doing something, while Akari is just standing around doing nothing with generic regular hands, unless you buy a second Nendoroid.
All they had to do was make another pair of straight arm parts. Or another left arm action part.
Anyone know where to buy old/discontinued anime carabiners?
I love the body but hate everything above the neck
Were there any reports in here yet on how jpn-depot is? Or is there maybe someone that tried them?
Where do you guys get album info for your CDs? Tagging shit manually is lame.
Even when I'm getting a different type (joint, chibi, scale, prize, etc.) I'll get rid of the other.
For example, just ordered the celty scale and hot toys iron patriot so I have to offload their nendos.
Nico and Hotaru just shipped, wonder if I'll get down to no current pre-orders.
Is it allowed for nendos to be this smug?
>tfw you coax your friend into buyfagging
>tfw you can split shipping
>tfw they didn't charge import taxes
How wrong is it to buy a figure of a character from a show or game you never did?
I really like this figure but I dont like what it is to make it a 100% buy now
Did you have to send in a photo of some ID, as they say here?
Are they delaying her for her release in SF5 hype?
Could they be giving her a redesign for her SF5 costume?
It doesn't magically disappear just because you deleted it.
I like how pissy callanderfag gets when he's made fun of.
>b-but im a nice guy who wants everyone to have a nice day!!
You're just a pathetic attention starved faggot with a shit gimmick
First time using RSAL, is it always this slow? Still sitting in Japan a month later, my March order's already been dispatched.
Luck of the draw, I've had mine come in 2 weeks and other times in 2 months. It's the shipping option where you forgot you bought it and are surprised when it comes. I used to be impatient like you but now I quite enjoy the wait
