Wing teased their Purple Heart. I guess this means Pre orders will open up soon.
Plum teased their Tina Sprout. This might mean preorders will open soon!
Lovepon figure when?
As much as I would like to get her, I will be saving my money for the better Saber.
What do you think of this? I think that she is wearing glasses.
Expect more best Saber once the anime hit next year.
I shouldn't have waited. Fuck those orders closed fast.
A new Kiss Shot prize figure. This time it is a Ichiban-Kuji by Banpresto--one of the higher tier manufacturers for figure game prizes.
Her MFC page has more details than I'd care to write about.
Should I just fucking give in and buy her for 250 euros because Aniplex hates me and having it forwarded would have resulted in the same price because of import tax?
I feel so shitty about it.
It was mentioned on a Hobby Japan twitter account that the Amakuni Haruna will have the same smooth skin their recent Hestia release had.
Pre orders will close on the 12th so if you've been on the fence decide soon.
Fluffy marshmallows body~
The fineness of the costume design is great!
Ah, yes the musou game.
Awful system, I know.
Waiting for this to go up for PO.
No, I already went to the final step with that order, they also want 40 bucks for some tax.
I'm also considering maybe using biginjapan and undervaluing, if it works then I'll come out cheaper. If it doesn't then I'll waste even more money.
The finish for the skin feels soft and smooth! James said that is similar to the recent Alter scales. It is great that figure technology is advancing.
I think I'm just going to sink the money in ixu.
I don't like using BiJ to forward stuff at all, or forwarding in general, and my undervalued stuff has been caught a few times.
I'm guessing that if they saw a box with "1/7 scale deluxe edition" on it that they'd be smart enough to understand that there's no way that's worth 20 bucks or less.
I really hate how fucking strict my country is with import tax. You can get just about anything through customs, but there's no "caught" by customs, because if you don't undervalue you'll always have to pay, and if you do you'll still have to pay half the time.
Amico will forget to split something in my order. I won't see her until June.
It is a soft fluffy! 40cm big
Is there such a thing as a guide to make a custom base for a figure? Sometimes they're just so plain and shitty, if it's going to be a basic plastic disc I may as well get to pick the colour and not have a logo on it…
Jesus fucking Christ, EMS has never taken this goddamn long before. I don't know whether to complain now or wait for another couple of days. Have any other canadafags been experiencing such long delays recently?
Same shit. I've been stalking my tracker app everyday too. PicNico fucking never ;_;
I've had that happen too, but this has never been delayed for this long. Usually the "en route to Canada" is around 2 days, then another 2 for when it magically appears by my doorstep. The updates don't come until after I've signed the package for some reason, but all of them have proper timestamps after.
In any case, the entire process has never taken more than a week, and I'm mostly miffed since I already paid $85 moose bux alone for this shoddy shipping.
I got my 2 Shinobu figures
and I think I just realized how much I hate assembling figures
GOD DAMMIT but they look so good
Am I the only one who would buy a figure of AmiAmi-Chan?
Shes super cute
So where are all the One Punch Man Figures?
I wanted Saitama, Rider and Tornado scales
I never agreed to shit
Don't like dolls? They remind you that you will never have one until you normalise enough to get a job and save money for it?
Grand Total: 18,200 yen
[Shop Item No.:TOY-00H7OOH3]ALTER μNo.12 ミュー・テュエルブ
12,000 yen x 1
Only 12k yen for Alter's Mu. I just couldn't avoid buying it.
Who collects hips here?
What are the best fapping figures?
Im thinking of buying Pic
You'll probably get there eventually. Can't speak for everyone but if you don't keep it in check, your tastes generally expand further and further into the depths of depravity.
Do you think BiJ will allow me to use their own forwarding service for the items I buy from their store? It would make communication much easier than having to use another store and forwarding over BiJ and I could send my stuff as unregistered SAL.
>> Any anime, manga or other Japanese mass consumer media.
>> Not noteworthy for its poor quality.
Never in the ever.
>figure came in with a broken leg
>amiami gave me a 300 yen return and said they can't do anything else
>I emailed them the same day the figure arrived despite their website saying 7 days for a full return
>amiami won't honor this
I feel like DSP right now, wooooooow
What's the first figure you ever ordered/started your collection with?
I had no interest in collecting figures until my girlfriend bought me this as a surprise one day.
Any SM girl scale in a fortified suit would be fine for me.
Beato still the best.
I bought some figure at an anime convention for $220 and found out she was worth $70 elsewhere. I felt ripped, but it also started my downward spiral. I informed myself about better prices online instead of buying directly from conventions.
Weird pose, but pretty cute overall.
She was released nine years ago, so finding her might be a bit troublesome.
This. 38 figures later I still fucking love it.
of course, marketing researching-san. shes a qt and amiami is a pretty solid store who punishes fags and awards faithful buyfags with nice postcards
Friend of mine has 3 really shitty prize figures and 2 nendo's he bought at a convention. They were his first figures, he paid like 250 euros for them.
When he told me, I showed him after checking MFC and a bunch of shops that he could have gotten them for like 90.
How many people start their collections by grossly overpaying for something?
that is why I really hate convention or otaku festival, they are selling shitty rip-off items where you can download by torrent like artbook, music cd, anime dvd... and scamming people like that.
>Going to anime conventions.
No wonder so many companies circuit those things. Everything they sell is so marked up, it really begs the question that why do people STILL not buy things online in this time? Maybe back in the early 2000's, but now? There's no excuse other than idiocy.
I don't know but this one might be the right one for you
My first figure. Never even came to this thread before buying her and never did any research aside from learning before hand about bootlegs vs legit products since I had been familiar with buyfagging die-cast models.
Still easily one of my favourites, but I've basically quit playing video games since I bought her, so not sure if shes fully /a/ approved.
I've been wanting to get her, but I already have Alter's Dizzy and I don't really play Blazblue all that much. I mostly play GG and King of Fighters these days.
Yeah. I immediately sent the guy a message when I saw the price.
What do you guys do in terms of storage for books? Been looking around but can't seem to find any ones that come with a lid/are sealable for tankobon size. Do you guys know of any places that are good for boxes/crates like that because I'm not looking into getting shelf's.
I'm going to try and clean my daki cover for the first time
I'm hesitant to using a washing machine, but pic related seem to indicate it's fine? it's no bootleg and smooth knit/polyester I believe
anyone able to translate? I'm too retarded to understand the icons (40 degree washing machine ok I assume?)
Yeah Xrd hinges a lot on online multi-player and it's 5-hour OVA of an story mode (it's longer than the whole FLCL without ED).
I hope Revelator has better single player content, like mission mode or a better survival mode.
right, I'm not going to have anything else in the machine
I assume with no washing chemicals/powder thing by the crossed over flask?
I don't have a big enough sink or anything of the size to wash it with, and I am confident a machine will do a better job than me when it comes to cleaning
Baker-sensei figure when?
Exactly, I still managed to get 50 hours out of Xrd so far despite the downsides. Relevator sounds great with a return of some nice characters, I know if I didn't get the pre-order DLC on regular Xrd it would fill super empty without the added characters.
I don't understand you people
The comparison is pretty obvious. Mazinger Z isn't armor. It's a robot they are piloting, like an airplane, for destructive power.
Mobile suits provide protection and have massive amounts of utility. Like a suit of armor.
Does she have Smooth Skin® technology?
Up to 40°C, doesn't matter if gentle or normal setting.
No detergent with bleach.
You can iron it with up to 160°C, but only with a cloth between the iron and the cover.
You can dry-clean it with a petroleum based agent.
You should hang it in a shade to dry.
I love her fig, but Edna didn't have that much presence in the game, as such, I feel like I don't have enough connections with her.
Well, at least that scene was excellent.
Has anyone ever experienced Amiami charging cardsore slowly than usual when dealing with American Express? I went to go pay for Caster but there's no charge on the account for her like five days later.
I want her but I'm afraid of her ankle snapping.
Convince me /a/
When I pay with my debit mastercard, the charge will immediately show on my bank account, then disappear a day or so later, then reappear sometime before the week is over.
Say I paid on monday, it would show up with that day's exchange rate for a short period of time, dissapear, then reappear on like thursday with thursdays exchange rate. But that's just what I've observed from my bank.
How odd, it sounds like they're using a hold or something on yours, mine usually show up in a few hours and stay. I guess I'll wait a few more days, but if after that its still not there I celebrate.
They can end early. I was planning on bidding 15k on something once after another auction had ended, just to find out the seller had ended it early and some cunt won it for 800.
I usually wash mine in a washing machine, I could be wrong but if you wash it with colour safe detergent (without bleach) the first time, it proofs and then it's fine to wash it with normal detergent (I think but like, shit, if you aren't poor, just buy colour safe detergent anyway just to be safe).
But yeah, colour friendly detergent and a gentle cycle (or whatever setting your washing machine has for "delicate items") and you should be fine.
Get picNico instead like the other anons said.
Her midriff and legs are great
Slowly getting stronger
Still waiting for 10 more
Amiibos aren't totally shit but jesus christ don't display them next to your weeb figures.
Did anyone else get their's?
I love her. She now towers over me when I sleep.
Can you fuck it?
>Without a drill and pocket pussy
What are you, autistic?
Tfw you don't have enouph money to buy a 60 foot stature of your giant anime waifu.
I have a friend who refuses to buy anywhere but at conventions because he can 'look at the figure before buying' and 'feels safer that way'.
Of course he is mostly a jointfag, so it all checks out.
>Favorite girl was Tharja
>She got a figure
>Then she suddenly became hated by everyone in the west
I wonder how that even happened. I hope Camilla gets one soon.
well, his taste might be shit, but anyway - make sure that he always double check on mfc to no get scammed (price or bootleg)
Actually it's not guaranteed that you get ripped of at conventions.
At least in germany you can make a good deal. i bought my Dark Angel Olivia for 120€ which is way cheaper that if i would import it. but a seller directly beneath the one where i bought her tried to sell her for 250€ - i couldn't stop laughing at them.
I cant say I didnt try to help.
Generally at conventions you wont find anything thats not a 200% markup because seller fees etc. The only items that you can get semi-decent prices on are art books, as those are pricy anyway and shipping can be expensive. Even then generally not, at least in USA.
>Getting figures of shows you don't watch or of games you don't play
That's a very sure way to go down the slope, one that ends with you getting your credit score fucked by that fancy Granblue Fantasy credit card.
i was surprised myself at the bookfair in Leipzig (germany - it's actually also one of the bigger anime/Manga-conventions in germany) that about half the sellers had decent prices which were only about 10-20% higher than usual.
But the other sellers were ridiculous overexpensive.
I don't know how's the convention over there on the western part of the world, but you can find cheap stuff at convention here.
Pic related, I paid 10k for her two years ago.
Just be smart at conventions. You can get some cheap petites. I got pic related for a good 60 bucks, which is around what I would've paid for her with shipping.
Kinda. This is me Sperging out for a moment BUT:
Daisuke Ishiwatari was 100% hands on with the Guilty Gear series, from Art, Gameplay, and music. He is the soul of that series
Blazblue is made by 2 dudes who didn't know what they were doing balance wise. Daisuke only did music for that.
It just bothers me slightly.
Now you're the one bringing up developers. I just expressed that my thought process was "Gee, I'd waste cash on this plastic statue of Noel, but I already have this one of Dizzy and I don't play it all that much. Ohh well, if one day I have overflowing spare cash I'll probably get Noel for like 6-7k off Mandarake."
Blazblue did got a couple of stuff right, though. The biggest was making a scene easy to build from scratch and lots of single player content, through a very interactive story, to attract more fans.
A Chrom scale would sell like hotcakes. Chicks loved Chrom.
I'm just being a dumb spaz
Calamity Trigger was ass. But they've gotten better over time. I like ChronoPhantasma. I guess I'm just a Daisuke elitist because his music is amzing, and Guilty is his Crowning achievement.
You'd noticed that the OST between Guilty Gear Overture and Blazblue CT/CS are very similar. Likewise, the songs for the newcomers in blazblue have a large Xrd-like feel. Particularly Nine's theme.
dude's half naked, he's ready for PVC
I hope Inigo or Owain get scales, seeing how they were in 2 games and were up in the polls. I'm sure Owain would sell a lot, especially in his second outfit.
OR should stop making swordshit and start making a variety of males.
Remember the 2 most popular characters of each gender and generation are
If we get any more Awakening figures it'll probably be among these.
>there will never be a cherche figure
She'd probably be the only one I'd buy.
I want this, but I'm pretty sure if it was made it would be fucked up somewhere in the process.
Henry is best but only in original nip version
Would buy either gender Morgan
>Not him, but I could easily afford a doll - I just think they look creepy as fuck.
Reminder that the worst part about dolls isn't the price.
It's explaining them to guests.
it was more of a picnic post since I only had the washing machines for tonight (its shared so you book times in advance), so buying a container wasn't possible when the idea crossed my mind to wash it.
Won't be an issue anymore tho since the washing machine method worked out great
Was interested in this (seeing how all the scales are shit) but seeing how it is a GK, how fucked am i trying to find it?
I display Disney infinity figures next to mine
it's true in 98% of the cases.
For the store where i bought Olivia i know why they were able to sell her that "cheap"
They preordered tons of her but that had internal problems which led to not reacting to customers over several month' - lots of customers canceled their orders due to this and left them with dozens of Olivias and other figures etc...
Worst part about dolls is other doll owners, I've found.
>spot a beautiful BJD while at a con
>intend to go over and compliment the owner, maybe see if I can get a closer look at the details/get some specs
>realize the owner is a greasy neckbeard who's infamous for getting handsy with girls at cons and has legendarily exposed himself in front of minors before
>no sir, I don't want to get groped
I shudder thinking about what he does to that poor doll. And the majority of female BJD owners aren't any better, they're always unwashed hambeasts who can barely take care of their own basic hygiene, let alone keep their dolls in good condition. All those dusty, tangled wigs.
In my experience once you factor in shipping and customs, it usually works out to be the same if not slightly more expensive. There are a lot of scalpers though and most people just sell prize figures for stupid prices.
It's more a problem with telling the fakes apart, some stuff don't look obviously like fakes and I'm not familiar enough with the original to tell them apart, at which point I have to hope that I can get enough internet to at least check MFC
I've never had fakes show up at Cons. I think people will call out vendors for that shit and get them kicked out.
My gf was stupid at a con and bought "The World" for JoJo's for me at $80. That some fucked up mark up. Like she could have got me to of those figures at that cost.
This is MCM in London, there are a lot of fakes on sale there but the organisers don't give a shit and the people attending are too retarded to realise they're buying fakes.
Basically anything run by Chinese or asian people is generally full of bootleg shit. Someone took a picture of that Miku Shinkai Shoujo being sold at MCM before it was even release.
GSC even sold a T Shirt saying "Don't live in a world of fakes" or something at the event
Fuck, that's some shit handling.
Have you ever seen people who are selling figs they got at the place they where manufactured? Like, how sometimes that shit can be super cheap.
first lewd daki
don't imagine shipping will be too bad even with ems
That's one route, another is to simply buy the figure and make a mould from it.
At least GSC goes to this convention, the stuff they sell is usually convention-exclusive plus some relatively recent figures. Shame that 50-60% of their stock is made up of nendoroids and figmas which I have no interest in.
Some bootlegs come out even before the actual figure is released.
It is of the color yellow.
Just found out about this account. This guy makes some nice characters out of clay.
I never understood how Dollfags could make their dolls so /fa/, but themselves look like retards.
The guy who hand sew the clothes for this photo shoot only walked around in stained sweet pants and a hoodie.
I am impressed that you noticed.
The rest of the photo belong to this site.
If you purchase it. Not so much if self-made.
Kinda funny, I made fun of a dollfag friend as well.
His doll full get up cost like 300+ and he walk around like a walmart people.
isn't that the keion school?
Just wait for new Saber.
My wallet gonna be so dead when Japan decide to make a final ascent art Tamamo.
>take care of your doll
>she will stay pretty in her glass age for weeks
>take care of yourself
>your appearance deteriorates by the minute
fit doesn't mean pretty or fashionable.
Big fat jackal tits.
>being so mad that Saber gets a lot of figures that you're trying to prevent people from getting her
It's an exclusive Saber from Aniplex. Imo it looks absolutely stunning, especially the accessories. I'm betting that it'll skyrocket in price post-release.
>Alter didn't bust out the scale
It won't stop hurting.
I know, and I'll buy that one too.
I wonder how high the deluxe edition will go for on aftermarket. Most of the Aniplex+ Sabers went almost double their price on Manda.
sorry for blog post
>card temporary suspended because sister is an idiot
>I'm an idiot for never fixing it till now
>already on payment overdue
>already on amiami's final straw
>try to fix card
>forgot what my SSN is
I can call up my parents, but most likely they're both asleep and it will probably take them a day to find out what it is.
AmiAmi can ship to P.O boxes right? again sorry for the blog post
>no tougo and yuuna on her carrier
>no gil on vimana
>no caro sitting on voltaire's shoulder
>tfw you'll never be properly raped on shipping costs
I did Aniplex+ JP and forwarding. Then again I've had issues with both TOM and RS, so I choose the lesser (though possibly more expensive) of the evils.
It will really depend on where you live. If in the US, RightStuf or TOM are your best bets if you've never had issues with them. RightStuf will charge you shipping but you can pay later, similar if you preorder on AmiAmi, but you will get an authorization charge. TOM is pay now, but free shipping plus you'll get points for future orders and can use current points on her, knocking the price back a bit. If you're a new customer to TOM you'll get an $5 off coupon, and I think free shipping in the US.
If you do Aniplex+ JP, you'll need a forwarder or proxy, and will pay probably forced EMS.
Man, I really want to go buy an onahole but living in a house with no locks and 5 other people puts me off the idea really bad.
Fair bit of a step up from just my figures which are ecchi at best.
I swear her tits are getting bigger and bigger.
She is a shapeshifter. Tits may varied.
At least she have a personality if you played the game.
She had a fun personality.
Also, Chiwa Saito.
She's perfect. I don't mind if Nero gets all the limelight in the new anime, but I hope she at least plays some part in it.
>volks kimi never
Not entirely sure, but I think this is what he's talking about.
>She's perfect. I don't mind if Nero gets all the limelight in the new anime, but I hope she at least plays some part in it.
I really can't see them skipping her. Archer maybe, but even he is slightly different from the regular one. Hoping they honestly have both of the MCs in it as well.
Anyone ever buy bootleg daki's from Amazon?
if so, how's the experience?
Thinking of this, since finding the C86 is almost impossible to find.
>tfw 60 dollarydoos
Literally what. It's already differentiated, it's a different fucking filetype.
GSC and UC are collaborating on Kabeneri figs. Not sure what to think of this.
I was just pretending to be retarded. Not getting enough (You)'s today. Thanks for conversing with me.
