Guys I bought this figure and it has some black marks on it. Can I clean it off with an eraser?
Was thinking about buying a few anime shirts from Redbubble can anyone confirm if the designs fade after a few washes? Because from what I heard from like 4 different people the designs start to fade after the first few times you wash the shirts.
I hope it happens before my april order arrives. Recovering yen and a delay to my March order is really fucking me over right now. Don't know if I want my order to get delayed again in hope for the yen to drop or my order to arrive sooner to pay it off before it gets worse.
Go to japan in august and win her from a crane game.
Subscribe to the comments on her MFC page to see if anyone bothers to post a link if a store puts up orders for her. Pre-ordering prize figures isn't something that most people keep track of. I don't even know if they consistently go up. Amico won't have them. BiJ had the pochaco noodle stopper but that was a different manufacturer. She may not show up until you see her at YAJ, mandarake or Amico preowned section.
Please share what your thoughts are.
Same, it would be nice if it tanks before I get the notification for Chino, but I doubt it will happen.
They're very cute and their designs translate very well into the super deformed style. I'd get them if I was invested in the series even if I only liked one or two characters.
I have the wings from (http://myfigurecollection.net/item/148500)
Your Miku is really cute and looks happy to be with Teto. I will have to pick one up someday.
I ordered from Amiami and didn't realize until after completing the order that the quantity of the figure somehow got entered as two instead of one. What are the chances they'll change it back to one or cancel it for me if I ask them right away? This only happened about five minutes ago.
You can probably get Miku 3.0 pretty cheap. I'm waiting for one more miracle to happen.
Please make it stop.
When we were at 108 in 2013, Nendoroids were still 2900 yen and figma were still 3800. There was a huge boom of new buyfags when the yen suddenly got a burst of strength. You can see how many new US based stores popped up since then.
Now that a single figma is 5200, these prices are currently 30% more than they were in 2013. Due to shipping costs we are paying a little bit more than Japanese are. The Japanese market has been shrinking since 2013 because of rising costs. It suggests that in the future, unless things change, the US and Chinese markets might stop growing.
At this point it is now cheaper to buy from US sellers and shortly their prices will increase. I hope you've saved your Amiami cancellations and are prepared to order from the jews, because their prices are about to be very competitive if the dollar drops any more.
The ride is coming to and end it seems.
For figures that are already locked in at a certain price by re-sellers, US redistributors are already competitive.
I bought Nico Yazawa from Crunchyroll for the same price that it would be to buy from directly from Dengekiya, even though the pound is shit against the yen and the dollar. (though to be fair, you can't actually buy from Dengekiya without a Japanese card).
The worst part is that now figure prices have gone up, they're already as expensive as they were post 2008 (i.e. when the pound hit 120) but that was AFTER the last economic storm. The next one hasn't even kicked off and things are already as shitty.
It was definitely Abe's plan. They needed to inflate it even more and inflate it for even longer than this. This deflation is a failure. They wanted to increase exports, probably until 2020. What do you think Cool Japan was all about? They spent billions on it.
Look at how many new buyfags there are. When it was 124:1 dollar I'm sure there were plenty of new people looking at that Kill la Kill Nendoroid and thinking, "I want to buy that and it's only $35." Now that Nendoroids are $50 do you think they'll stick around or that new people will join up? Really doubt it.
As soon as the yen dropped to 119 I bought all the figures I had been eyeing up. It was definitely not their intention for the yen to drop back down and this is uncontrolled right now.
>tfw bought the majority of my figure backlog when it was around 124
And to think I was starting to question if selling my car back then was a bad idea, now I know I made the right choice.
So, how many of you have your cases floating in the middle of the floor? It sounds like a bad idea but I'm trying to work some new furniture into my room but due to fuckhuge closets I don't have a ton of wall space for even a Detolf. It seems my options are to place my plastic butts (unlit, even) smack in the middle of the room or put up some wall shelving, but I don't want to do that since I'm in a rental. What do?
I know shit all about economics, but I thought if you wanted to increase exports you deflated your currency so it's cheaper to buy into. That's the opposite of what's happening now.
How does one properly light an anal cavity? More seriously, the place is a decent size, only configured oddly. I think I'm just going to have to get some wall shelving made that will span from stud to stud so I at least don't have to use drywall anchors that leave holes to put Junji Ito to shame.
Anyone have some nice shelves they found? I know Ikea has a few workable options.
When I started this I swore I'd never slip too far
I'm only making £20 a week right now ;-;
You can get those monkey hooks to hold smaller shelves. They don't leave big holes, I used those at my apartment
>Many said the U.S. dollar would rise against the Japanese yen this year. Instead it has fallen, baffling investors and leading to fierce speculation on when it could reverse.
>The dollar dropped below ¥110 on Wednesday for the first time since 2014 after rising above ¥125 in June. It’s down 8.3% this year through Tuesday, compared with a 4.6% fall against the euro. That’s despite a decision by the Bank of Japan to adopt negative interest rates this year, which was aimed in part at trying to weaken the currency.
>Many say a stronger Japanese yen makes it more difficult for the country’s exporters to stay competitive and makes it difficult for economic stimulus measures to have their desired effect. The Nikkei 225 index is down 8.3% over the last seven trading days.
>Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told The Wall Street Journal that countries should avoid competitive currency devaluations, saying “I think we should refrain from arbitrary intervention in currency markets.”
Whelp, time to rev up those bootlegs.
I love how all of this is technically speculation and nobody fully knows why or how the markets move the way they do.
Not really complicated as people make it.
China getting rich, Chinaman and family just vacationing in Japan. Spend like crazy cause Chinaman can, massive flow of foreign currency. You wouldn't believe how much my friend is raging at all the mainland barbarian shitting up Tokyo.
I still want to shit on that fuckface from this thread that said the yen would tank 2 months ago.

I guess someone got this as a present from him but later sold this on mandarake auction. In the end, the price was ¥830000.
It's pretty nice--I've got it next to my armored Klan Klein on my shelf. Kind of odd that it's based on an outfit she only ever wears in promotional art, but still nice.
Yeah, it's crazy. Sean Ari's getting a cast-off figure too.
Haha, no, probably not. And it breaks my heart a little.
Actually, I'd settle for him putting out more "complete editions" redraws of the earlier volumes just to pass the time. God knows where the most recent plotline was, and at least those had Gara and Arshes in them.
See, i was a fan too, back in the day.
but when it stopped making sense and the pages became a Ps texture catalogue i lost interest. i still think his best art was in the floating Island part
after that it became too cold
I didn't know this figurine was that bad.
I have her other statue but I just love that thin fabric stretched tight over those luscious sloping banana tits
But her pose is kinda dumb and I only want one of her so no thanks
Once it gets down to 100 I'm out. Will do a complete amiami cancellation. Literally no reason for it to be trending down, so when a reason finally shows up, we're gonna be fucked.
I don't disagree, the earlier volumes hold up a lot better as a self-parody of dark fantasy, and I think even he admitted the last few volumes were a jumbled, incomprehensible mess. Probably why I like the idea of redraws (I'm also a sucker for reissues of old games I like). Though the last volumes did have one or two charming scenes with Gara, Arshes Nei and Kall-su, the rest of the fighting between DS and the Archangels or whatever was a mess.
Early volumes hold up pretty well, especially if you enjoy the fourth-wall breaking comedy, psuedo-science, and fantasy generally not taking itself too seriously. Then again, I still think seeing Arshes chrew out Gara for whatever stupid shit he gets into his muscle brain is funny after all these years, so I'm biased.
This gets me wondering if there are enough nostalgiafags to warrant a Bastard!!! thread, if only to reminiscence about the days where things almost made sense in a funny way.
Problem with popular/mainstream/cashcow series is that, never ending merchandises.
Well, at least I can sleeve my Weiss deck with my waifu.
I bought some sleeves and a mat and decided I wouldn't be getting anything else but cards of her. It would be far too easy to constantly buy new sleeves since they're constantly being sold at events.
Keychains however are killing me, I bought the F/GO Pic-lil set just for one of them. I hope I can sell off the others at some point.
Just grabbing fluffy tail sleeves for now. Hopefully the Fate/Extra anime will get release in Weiss and Tamamo will be in it.
I haven't played a card game in 10-11 years and have 4 packs of sleeves ordered at the moment that I don't know what I'm going to do with. I ordered them mainly just to support the show.
You just activated my hidden power; Nostalgia Driver
Only sell here if you don't care about making money, people here are Jews and will try to get the figs as cheap as possiblr. MFC is good if you want to sell at current market value but most of the users tend to stop responding after a few messages.
Ebay if you don't care how long it takes and want the most money
MFC/reddit if you want to get rid of it relatively quickly for decent prices
Here if you want to get rid of it fast for cheap
Well, too bad then. I will just make next best Saber deck.
Not that I know of
I've sold some stuff here and on MFC. I haven't ran into any problems yet.
Speaking of, I'm selling this stuff.
The postcards at the top are 100 yen each.
The bookmarks are 50 yen each.
The sticker at the top right is 100 yen.
The cards at the bottom are 50 yen each.
I also have this stuff, but the prices aren't organised yet: http://myfigurecollection.net/list/32191
I'll shit anywhere as long as it's not some shithole where the package will vanish.

Everyone should move out by the age of 20
Ive been out for the last 4 years of my life and its great
>Working with THAT Guy
I've worked with THAT guy twice before
You'll get under Minimum wage, no sick or Annul leave, only 10 minutes a break a day, and treated like shit
I fucking Hated my time working in Trades, I'd rather work in retail for the rest of my life then to work in a trade again
Question. I pre-ordered pic related back in November. Since then, the release has been delayed twice: originally it was supposed to release in February, was then delayed to "end of April" and now has been delayed again to "end of May".
Is this indicative of quality issues? Has anyone heard anything about this fig having problems?
MFC is okay. Biggest problem I've run into is people not responding after shipping quotes or a message asking if they're still interested. I never get why the do it either.
/a/ and /toy/ are alright if you want to sell fast and cheap.
eBay is great for mainstream stuff, but a bit shit for non-mainstream stuff. Fees might not be worth it if you just have cheap stuff (straps, gashapon, etc.) unless you're selling popular characters for a decent price.
>tfw attempted to buy a clearly legit scale for 20 bucks that usually goes for 60 and the seller never got back to me
>it's been a month and he still won't respond to my messages
I give up
>Is this indicative of quality issues?
No. Original release dates are loose as fuck in Japan. Just means they were being produced slower than anticipated.
Remember, all those figures need to get their cow tits hand painted by a Chinese woman. That shit takes time.
He's making assumptions. It's pretty obvious from the reveal that Nero will be the central character. So from that you wouldn't expect much Tamamo given how the main servants work in Extra, but she may have a cameo.
And who knows Tamamo is in the Fate/Extella game which looks to be getting a english release even.
The polite thing to do would be to tell the person you're either buying from or selling to that you're not interested anymore or that you have a better offer, rather than leaving them hanging on a potential sale or buy.
As a seller, what >>139750729 said is true. It also makes me hesitate to do business with a person in the future, and they certainly go on the bottom of the list if I get multiple offers for a sought after item.
I do understand it's a pain, but it's nice to seller or buyer. At least they don't get their hopes up that they've made a sale/purchase.
>it's the polite thing to do
Nah, I'm good.
They'll figure it out. The majority of time mfc listings are shit anyway.
It's not like you can't have multiple accounts on mfc for those spazs who think they're actually running a storefront.
Additionally, people think it's some huge effort to trade, quote, pack, etc. I've been selling on ebay and craigslist for a long time and some people really have no concept of what goes into the most basic selling practices.
>exchange rate tanking
>only preorders are cardfagging supplies
mfw all three Odin Spheres are this month
Is she worth it? Im currently saving up for my own place and as it stands right now, Im quite rich. But every penny counts and I dont want to spend 100$ on a figure if she isnt great.
Safe-haven demand has been driving the Japanese Yen (JPY) higher this week, with markets disconcerted by the implications of the Panama Papers data leak.
we should have left the bank niggers alone
I only have one figure pre-ordered, and the absolute maximum that will rise to is four. Feels pretty good.
Will splitting this up help save on shipping or am I fucked either way?
how much is too much?
i'm cleaning my closet right now, it's literally just boxes and boxes of figs and gunpla
i have tons of unopened figs (lots of nendroids) because i have no space in my detofts anymore
i was gonna post more pics, but i tired from moving shit around
this is about half my stuff
Although because you have two 1/4 figures, you might be forced to use SAL Parcel or EMS instead of SAL Small Packet, both of which are usually a bit more expensive
The only 1/4 I've ever bought I shipped via EMS so I'm afraid I can't say how much shipping would cost.
will amiami ban me for canceling an order I didn't mean to cancel? I added the wrong figure to the cart that I was looking at and purchased it, when I meant to buy a different figure.
Will amiami let me cancel and put in the correct order or will they ban my account?
>Remember, all those figures need to get their cow tits hand painted by a Chinese woman. That shit takes time.
Did a few lose their hands or something? You'd think they'd have this shit down to the quarter of a penny per hour like Nike does
C.C. confirmed to have green pubic hair. Would be nice to have C.C. and Kallen together in one frame though. That'd be one perfect centerpiece of a long time debate between green vs red.
Do any of you look at your figures when you're sad to cheer you up?
I look at mine and say things like "You're pretty" etc (no I don't make imaginary conversations with them) but they do cheer me up.
When I feel shitty sometimes I just look at them and get a little smile on my face.
Nah to be honest I don't think it's all that weird that looking at something pretty makes you feel good. I definitely think anime figures are pretty because why else would we own them, right?
You get a pet if you want something that shows you affection. Plastic butts are like "art" in a sense that they provide you with a certain feeling when you look at them. I think that's something entirely different
While I'm not one of the faggots who thinks anything can be called art as long as you think it is, I do find it hard to argue against the physical representation of the impression a person has of a fictional concept being art.
I think that that should definitely qualify.
Fuck off and take your inbred pitbulls with you.
>Posting a picture of fucking Caracalla
I'm not a dog person either, but posting a picture of an insane psychopathic emperor isn't the best way to make a point.
>needing a pet to love you
>not loving your pet regardless
>not knowing how to do things with your cat
>simply better tho
Dogfags are the worst.
>they are objectively smarter
In what world? Dogs and cats are both very smart animals but cats are more clever and put the intelligence to better use.
>love you more
Cats can love their owners just as much as dogs can. Both animals recognize you as a source of food, shelter, and affection and return the gesture in a way indicative of their personalities. It has nothing to do with how much they "love you."
>you can DO things with your dog, like go outside
>implying you can't take your cat on walks if you train him to do so from a kitten
I'm a dogfag and your argument is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
how the fuck did this thread derail into dog shitposting
>not cumming on it
One job. I mean, when you discover your waifu has secretly been a cockhungry semen toilet this whole time, the only way to save face is pump one more load in her tank and move on to the next bitch.
Small part of my monthly doujinshi haul made it past customs.
If you want blogshit, most of it stems from the fact that my work doesn't feel like work and I'm paid decently enough. I can afford things I want. I have nothing in my life that stresses out most people. No loans, wife watches 10-20 anime series per season with me, etc.
Jesus Christ the shitposting, I'm not even sure if it's bait or not.
>sad for you
>( space sentence space )
>implying leaving your dog outside because stores refuse to let your pet inside is doing things
It's like you're not even trying to hide the fact you're a facebook kym browsing faggot.
Cats are soft and nice to hold. Dogs are muscly and not as soft, and are not cute. Therefore cats are better.
Birds are the best though.
You could always put them in plastic bins so they don't get moth holes
I'd recommend dipping them in some Cosmoline before the bags too.
They say there are only three things that survive a nuclear holocaust: Twinkies, cockroaches, and Anon's daki collection.
I'm using those guys myself.
If I may ask a stupid question here, should I tell them to expect a package at the beginning of the month it releases or does it have to be exact?
And if it's exact how the hell do I figure that out before it ships out.
Turns out they cancelled one of them for me with no fuss. Thanks Ami!
Yes, 2you4 sends you a tracking number once they mail the package to you.
An estimate will be fine; no need for an exact date. Even "sometime within April" would work.
Cyan is perfect for Nendoization; even if I ended up with two of her I wouldn't have been too bothered because that second face will be useful for other Nendos.
Here's hoping the rest of Plasmagic is next (and some chuunifurs too).
is alexis express a good place to get covers? I want this cover but this is the only place I can find it at
I've never used Ali Express, all I know is that /cgl/ likes to use them. Maybe they could give you better advice. /jp/ also usually has a daki thread and you could ask there. Sorry I can't help more anon
>Here's hoping the rest of Plasmagic
Yes please. If anything crow would be next. Hopefully the second season does well. The characters in that show were made for nendos
It's a shame that cyan's one non insanely sized scale will be based of this picture though. I might get it based on the quality of the figure but eh.
Be carefull with aliex some sell bootlegs of bootlegs, the one you linked seems legit they have pictures of the lewd versions that never got on the taobao official stores due to their no-lewd policy.
Those aren't bootlegs as in "imitation of existing good" they are unlicensed derivative works made by Chinese doujin artist.
Lots of stores do sell actual bootlegs scanned from other doujin or officials.
>Look at XE
>See that 1 euro was equivalent to 170 yen back in 2008

Fuck my life, Just inflate already you piece of shit currency.
That's true for most chinese sellers like hobby heart, animedakimakura and similar.
Moeyu/slolita has its own artist team with original works, even as109 worked for them at some point, and noodle before he opened his own store (achobby).
I want Greece to be fucking nuked and turks to go back to their own shithole country.
My country was the richest in the fucking world back in the 17th century, now it's just an insignificant collection of pretty well-off people.
I hate everything about everything.
Anyone with the tank have any advice on how to get this part perfectly painted? It's the last thing I need to finish and the grey parts are just so narrow and the spaces in between the wood and metal are barely wider than a brush bristle. Masking isn't helping much.
>released for delivery 2 hours ago
>takes roughly 3 hours for the mailman after collecting the goods to arrive

I'm not even home yet. I hope they don't require a signature.
> My country was the richest in the fucking world back in the 17th century, now it's just an insignificant collection of pretty well-off people.
So you're anywhere in Western Europe?
I almost feel bad about taking advantage of someone else's misfortune. Almost. Thanks canceranon.
It's basically finished except that last part. I wish the treads weren't pitch black.
Bootlegs that are so bad, they're good are they only kind of worthwhile ones
These are dakis by a chinese doujin circle. I recognize the art style being slolita.
This is the original https://world.taobao.com/item/520060503632.htm?fromSite=main&spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-4665061153.29.kykRp3
I don't know if slolita has an official aliexpress store though.
>tank doesn't even look like it's made from metal
>worried about some box not being brown
your plastic toy is already perfect
They don't see the irony I guess.
Having a ridiculously terrible bootleg line for cheap might be a decent money maker all around
I think that would ruin the point. If there were loads of Saders floating around, they'd be nothing more than just a bunch of really shitty figures.
The only point then imo would be to put it next to the Clayz Saber it was modeled after, if you have that.
Except none of the tanks in the show appear weathered outside of when they're knocked out. Also, the ladder is in the wrong spot and the wood colors are too dark.
It's also not your image.
I mean shit the official image looks closer to the show than that, you could have tried harder.
I think it appeals more (going back to pets) to people who like the ugly, wacky stuff. People adopt ugly dogs because they're ugly in a cute way. They even have a world's ugliest dog competition in the USA. I know there are crazy enough people in this hobby to collect the worst out there
>buys Honoka before Honoka stock prices plummet worse than the great depression.
>pretends like someone else got the raw end of the deal.
Did anyone else get their Casko today? She looks even better in person, and bigger than I thought she'd be too. Sorry for the shit picture.
> floating around
What is it, a ghost?
You posted two promotional pictures, so you're just going to get a lot of uninformed opinions based on two shits you really won't be buying.
Post the retail version of both figures. You'll still get uninformed opinion from shits that don't own either figure, but at least it'll be more reasonable.
holy shit, this is comfy as fuck, if you ever thought about buying one of these, DO IT, you'll not regret it
>get it half-price
>less than most people selling used
>1/8 scale in wonderful condition
>being upset about the va being a whore
Nah m8, I'm happy with it. It just saddens me a bit when people give up their hobbies, for whatever reason.
Speaking of 1/8, is Makoto a giant? Box says she's 1/8, but she's at least a head taller than the rest of these, even considering the pose. Or are the rest of these girls midgets?
Okay, so I just realized I didn´t have any money in my paypal, but since it´s connected to my bank account that shouldn´t matter right?
Is CR just a retarded website that doesn't let you do it like that?
I'm going to be swarming in Miku/Vocaloid Nendos if they keep on picking good modules for the Co-de line.
If they ever develop a material that doesn't wear out to put on top of it, then I might.
Using it for even 1 hour degrades it. They're only useful for slapping the tits and then when you need to put it in storage it's too big and floppy to put anywhere. I sold mine.
Actually let me rephrase that. These things are great if you have enough money to not care about ruining them and tossing it out. Most of us don't have that kind of cash though.
>not realizing the tank in the picture is half the size of the figma tank and so are the figs
you don't have to weather something to have it look *not* plastic, also weathered != rusted
>wants to make the tank not look "plastic"
>puts posable plastic figures by it anyway
>still posting images that aren't yours
That's not even beginning how that hardly follows the show's design at all.
I think I might order my first Muramasa figure.
Her face and/or skin tone aren't completely fucked up for once.
The nurse one also up for pre-order is nice too, but I'm not sure about the 1/6th scale and my parents are both nurses so I'm not sure how to approach it thematically
my only question would be: "Are they any good?"
And than again i'm surprised how ppl can get so furious over such a meaningless thing.
Yes, surely doing deplorable acts make them less deplorable simply because you did them awhile ago, it's not the fact that you carried it out, you need to do it within a week's span or it doesn't matter! The past is the past!
>I want to enter the entertainment industry!
>Does anal in her first JAV
And you really think she's smart enough to hide the fact that it isn't her? There's enough birthmark and other depressingly accurate comparisons of the two. She just made a stupid fucking decision for a quick buck before 'hitting it big' by taking it big in her asshole.
indeed, but I doubt it will degrade THAT fast, my previous mousepad lasted quite a while, hestia-pad looks like new, even though I've been using her for a couple of months

Your average joe/jodette doesn't do porn. Despite 3dpiggu being slutty as fuck most of them don't do porn, at the very most they'll take a nude selfie. Idols/seiyuus lifelines are otakus wifing them in their heads, it's ridiculous to see people white knight these retards. They shouldn't have even considered doing porn if they're trying to be in the idol business, Get a job at a restaurant or be a temporary OL, Yes otaku are delusional for thinking the 3D behind the 2D is pure, but the 3D is just as bad for not practicing common sense.
Original point in the conversation was
>i'm surprised how ppl can get so furious over such a meaningless thing.
anon is exemplifying why it is not surprising at all.
Don't worry, following conversations is hard.
Seriously, only retarded idolfags who are autistic about purity give a shit. Any VA that played one of my favorite characters could have done porn and I wouldn't care. The VA is their own person, the 20 characters they played before is not connected to them in the 3D world no matter how hard retards wish they were.
Pretty much this
Their entire image is based on being this pure ideal
And when they fuck it up, the people who saw them as this pure ideal get understandably pissed off about it
>actors/musicians/etc contracts to not date/do the nasty, then yeah, it kind of makes sense these guys get angry
So you agree this statement was stupid and you retract it?
I'm too afraid to display this one. I wonder if the black version will actually get on the damn pegs without breaking.
