You did good by getting the expensive bootleg ver, looks close to the original, other the other hand those priced between 15-20 are really terrible, here is the orignal ver
Who /waitingfortheyentodrop/ here? Give me that 1 =111 back Abe
>Japan doing things to make it go back down.
>People buy yen because they think it will be successful and their own currencies are shit
>yen goes up.
I have no hope in civilization surviving past the depletion of fossil fuels. If humans ever try to colonize another planet, some group of people will probably sabotage it just so they can be the first.
That's a moron's point of view.
It's like saying if you want to be smarter than Stephen Hawking you should kill him. All you do is become better at killing, it doesn't make you smarter.
I really like this one, it's probably my favourite of the Saber Alter figures. Although the four pack set is pretty great too.
How much is something like this going to cost?
It looks amazing.
still no uncensored version of that?
Sadly, no. The best we can get is blur.
Between working, watching animu and shitposting on /a/ there's not enough time left anon.
And if there was, I would probably prefer to just spend more time here.
But how would one start sculpting?
loud music to drown out the screams
weights for dropping on limbs
windex for cleaning
>International shipping rates going up by 500 yen after May
Worth or should I wait for another figure ?
She's already cute. I hope she comes with something good as an extra
>using anything else other than EMS or DHL
Anyone know where to buy or torrent the full madoka magica music collection?
Is this the lewdest nendo?
>Getting your merch fast with no worries of it getting lost, insured and treated better by workers because its priority
Whatever makes you feel better poorfag
>implying your ems package is treated better
And what kind of 3rd world country do you live in where your packages get lost?
Judging by the style, it's that one guy that does amazing stuff, but never finishes anything.
Touken Ranbu fans are pretty buttblasted that he has like 15 amazing yet unfinished swordboys by sitting around.
>Get items in less than a week
>Use SAL or RSAL
>Get items in 1-2 weeks
It hardly fucking matters. And priority packages don't get treated better retard, they're all put in the priority pile while other packages will be put in the non-priority pile, either way your package is getting crushed if it's not sturdy.
Definition of brat
a : child; specifically : an ill-mannered annoying child <a spoiled brat>
b : an ill-mannered immature person
Sakurako is the literal textbook definition of a brat.
Touken ranbu fujoshit have an entire line of nendoroids and scales, they can fuck off. There are far greater travesties of nigh-unobtainable male gks.
>poorfags literally trying to justify saving 5 bucks to wait an extra 3 weeks
I like how you don't bring up sal not being insured while ems is too.
Get fucked poorfags
Never gotten anything in less than 3 weeks from Sal, I live in the Netherlands.
Like I give a fuck, in all my time buying figures I've never needed it.
I'm not the other anon but I live in Connecticut and it takes a month. I stopped using SAL a while ago though, usually my orders are big enough that EMS is the same price or less.
Amiami just sent payment request and I immediately paid for it. Is it going to ship out before the start of Golden Week or am I going to be holding my dick for a week or so before seeing progression on my order? Shit was already delayed due to Christmas Nico getting delayed to this month and it didn't get moved out of my Apriil order. I'm nervous.
Not sure if it's this thread or the previous thread that asked about Golden Week
Wat, I order single figures all the time (when I don't have a monthly order lined up), I've never paid more than $15 for ems, and the quote for sal is like $3 cheaper. I know autists have trouble with math, but $3 != $10-25
Tought tits if your shitty country doesn't have one. Get out of here you non-American subhuman. Literally every country other than America, Japan, and Switzerland needs to be cleaned of life and then have all natural resources extracted for our use.
My fucking dick is diamonds.
Did either of you have problems with her front foot not fitting into the base (hovering)? There was always a noticeable gap.
I may have
gotten a bit creative (re: frustrated) and used the dremel for a better fit. Now, it would lean except for a tiny piece of material I'm using as shim.
In the long run, it shouldn't be a problem, though. I plan on disassembling, priming and recoloring it. The base can get a little putty and work done to even it out. It's boring as is anyway.
I live on the east coast.
No, they don't.
Point systems are as retarded as rebates except at least with rebates you actually get real money back instead of FUNBux.
Better options for US-based resellers that I'm already ordering from.
Are you talking about the original one?, I've heard it's a common issue, but it shouldn't be a problem, mine doesn't fit perfectly but it doesn't lean at all, in fact the tip of her right foot touches the base.
>soon there will be talking onaholes
The future is going to get ex
>babby's first anime online store
>caters to weeaboos and normies
>embarrassing boxes, and if it's not boxes it's tape
>'Let's Enjoy Otaku Life!'
>long ass delays
The leaning is entirely my fault from trying to fix the foot not being flush.
I can fix the lean later with a more permanent solution but the tip of the shoe being the only thing making contact bothered me for some reason.
>2.5-3+ weeks in all cases.
>March 12-26 is 2.5-3+ weeks
Get a load of this guy.
pic related would make a better nendo for girl of the season
Not him but I recently started sculpting as I saw someone else posting his attempts on here, get some super sculpey, buy some cheap plastic sculpt tools, and a scalpel. Get an idea and play with it. You can build an armature out of some wire screwed into some wood. Im not sure what kind of clay these guys use but super sculpey doesnt dry until you bake it so you can play with it lots.
christ in heaven, gwendolyn & merceds are on volk's shelves here in osaka. Gonna try and see if i get gaijin tax free discounts.
Any suggestions on where to get a cardboard box to take them home?
Here's the newest month on my calendar
Hoe expensive will she be in the after market?
I'm not into joint stuff but she's beautiful, look at all those accesories and faceplates, shes quite big too 19cm.
>Is this the lewdest nendo?
I always thought this one was quite lewd. Dem nendo titties.
The colors really don't look good. I guess it's a good thing so I can pass on what is going to be expensive figure.
>Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen shortage, suppliers are no longer able to fulfill orders for the item below.
I know jack shit about Metal Gear series and damn I would that in a heartbeat.
No future tech for anon.
Expect to see
>>Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen shortage, suppliers are no longer able to fulfill orders for the item below.
Already got burned once by HLJ like this, hope it doesn't happen to that anon twice.
Anyone else hope their April order get shipped out today from Amiko?
Airbrush for fine/brittle stuff and canned for cloth or more robust figures like freeing bunny.
Then like a fucking bootleg here. I hope this isn't the version that people will be getting.
Syaro and looks like all about the angle. Her pose is looking to her left so it will look awkward taking a picture of her head on no matter what.
>Order from local shop
>Should be released in April which is already a month later
>They're on a week long break now
Dealing with customs would've been way better than this. Fuck local shops.
then you notice the lack of detail tones...fuck.
Just hope her bunny suit version will fill in the void of good Syaro.
>then you notice the lack of detail tones...fuck.
Yeah that's my problem, I just hope it's a case of >>140982502 but I will be pissed if the final looks like that because the first image I'd buy it, the second I wouldn't.
I hope Alter will make Alice too.
Havent bought figs in ages due to money being channeled to other things, but now during the most dry season of all, one that I want more than any other thusfar pops up for pretty high price. So fuck me I guess.
I wonder if GSC/MF will make one that beat Aniplex version.
Prefer her wearing her glasses.
Pic somewhat related.
Its the photography, look at their other pics, very heavy on the color saturation.
Also that pic is taken from an angle she's not supposed to be displayed from.
Pic related is the proper way to display hee, as you can tell from the alignment of the logo on her base.
>Finally get a figure announcement that isn't from DM
Why couldn't it be Arc V at least
I asked a while back but didn't do anything, I thought I'd get a second opinion.
I preordered pic related from Kirin Hobby in January and it said it woud be released in February, but I haven't heard anything about it coming in from Kirin Hobby. Is it typical for American dealers to not get stuff in fir months or am I getting screwed over?
They're really bad at keeping the item pages updated with current information. I'm still waiting on one of Koto's weapon sets that they had listed as a December release for months, and now it says sold out. I just sent them an e-mail demanding an explanation for the shit service and a refund if they really don't have any left.
You should e-mail them—or call if you happen to be free between 2 and 6 PM PDT, you might get better results talking to an actual person—just so you have it on record somewhere that you still haven't received your order. Have you paid for it yet?
Why the fuck is she getting a figure so soon?
I mean the shows new, and its fun and all
But this is just so early
Yep. Trigger are a part of a holding company that is partially run by GSC.
I've spent a reasonable amount on relatively expensive prize figures. Most was around 10k for one.
Although for a different reason, she has other figures I just really wanted her prize figures too. As long as you don't have unrealistic expectations and are okay with that then I don't see the problem.
Does anyone else look at their figures and think
>this looks so good
>but Im probably gonna cringe back at these in 10 years
>man these figures look good
>i really hope this shitty detolf doesnt break or something
>not wanting to be buried with them
>I'm more worried about what the fuck to do with them when I am too old to walk or about to die.
>80+ years old
>Collection of figs and nendos
>Your family has to figure out what to do with them when they ship you off to a nursing home, pull the plug, or move in with you to help you live
>The year is 24XX
>Yellowstone made a Pompeii out of America in 2026
>Archaeologists find an anon perfectly preserved in his room, at his computer, dick in hand
>Behind him is a detolf full of lewd figs, lolis, and nendos
>"It seems as though this man was trying to promote fertility with those figures of female fertility goddesses and children."
>"Yes, yes - his hand around his penis must be some kind of prayer ritual"
>wake up today
>Order Update: We Shipped Your Order Today
Good luck to the other anons and their harem book.
>TLR artbook #2 selling like hotcakes just like the first
>series once again proves it's among the best at selling merchandise
>still no Nana paint after like 8 months
Just keep up a healthy diet and exercise regiment, and make sure you do what you can to have healthy and clean arteries and veins.
So long as you have good blood-flow, you can totally get an erection.
Usually the quality and finish. Bootlegs tend to recreate fine detail such as strands of hair very poorly, and they also hardly ever match the original matt finish genuine figures have.
A lot of them are obvious. For the "good" ones it usually comes down to packaging differences or specific flaws in casting paint or construction that are identifiable. there's no common silver bullet in identifying them outside of learning what a real figure should look and feel like and/or carefully comparing to pictures of confirmed real figs. Thats why we and the guide suggest that newbies stick to trusted sites. If you order your used fig from Amiami or Mandarake or similar you just don't have to worry about it.
GSC maintains a bootleg info site that should give you some idea of what they can look like if your interested. Mfc often has shots of known bootlegs on figure pages too.
>Kind of want pic related
>Have 68cm head
I guess I'll have to go milsurp, then
A thought actually occured to me once that if I still have my figures in like 30-40 years I suppose their value would go up, no? So I'd just label every single one of them and tell my family
if I ever get one outside of my parentsthey can sell them for a decent buck. I mean I must have like $2000 worth of buyfag stuff at this point so it's a fair amount of money for some people.
Will this stuff really maintain its value over long periods? I mean how many people here are still buying figures from 20 years ago?
Granted the quality has improved by several orders of magnitude since then.
Any collectible item increases in value over time as it becomes more rare. So I guess as long as this hobby exists people will be willing to buy old stuff. Why do you think there are people paying insane money for fucking post stamps. It's the same concept.
I would have to assume older figures would only retain their value - and in fact, might cap their value - at some sort of anniversary date.
As an example, let's say someone has a scale for a series airing now that gets an anniversary event in 10 years. Assuming the series has stayed in good graces and not many scales were made for it, the best time to sell it would be when people are reminded of the series and it's relevant once again.
Otherwise, you're only gong to have hardcore fans want it. Also, the hobby itself rests on whether or not anime itself is still popular/relevant, or if people still have money to spend on figs (assuming there's not another depression or recession)
>he actually believes humanity will survive next 30 years
Wait, so will the still fulfill prior orders or not? Got the same email about it being in temporary shortage, restock in 1-3 weeks. However, I no longer have the order on my account, it disappeared. My charge still says pending as well, I didn't get a refund.
Most usually you can if you happen to have a decent picture you can tell the difference, thera are many other ways too including packaging, seals, holograms,...etc.
Don't trust MFC that much.
That's actually ridiculous. If they're going to get more stock in, like their email implies, why would they not fulfill prior orders? Do they legitimately think having people reorder the product, instead of just keeping the money and shipping when they get more stock is a better solution? I got my email last night, still haven't gotten a refund, so I don't even know when that'll take place.
Is there something higher in life than plastic butts?
actually a nice illustration
Car with your waifu on it?
The actual box looks bretty gud
I have action figures from my childhood still in their blisterpacks (Spawn, WildC.A.T.s, Batman, Gargoyles, etc.) that I still cherish.
I've always been a collector
(re: organized hoarder).
when all is said and done, I'm happy about them
I think thats a bit different
those items can be "cherished" dunno bout being able to cherish a 1/4 fig of a bikini neko sticking her ass out at you going "nyaa!"
>mfw I really want that fig tho
was up til like 4am last night on Elder scrolls online
and 10am rolls around and I hear a knock.
at this time, I am only in boxers
I made it to the door but I was not proud of it.
For anyone that buys h manga off amazon jp, does anyone know why Otokonoko Heaven got taken out of their stock? I've been buying the last few volumes since they never get uploaded on panda.
No clue, but since it is amazon, and it is something like Otokonoko Heaven, couldn't it be retards bitching, or amazon being too pussy to keep it up? Or maybe they just ran out.
The face is so shit, but I still want it. What do?
buying something from amazon us and i'm a little nervous. Im not new to buyfagging at all and I actually buy books and such regularly there, and even figures sometimes. If youre vigilant you can actually get a few decent deals. About a year ago I bought tiger from tiger and bunny, his max factory statue for 19 dollars shipped.
Today I bought a prize figure that's pretty rare, but the seller only had a few ratings. Amazon has never fucked me before, but I'm doting a little. I couldn't pass her up though.
Snagged this cutie at a trip to Kinokuniya on Friday
S3 never ;_;
No actual proof of him being in jail,but I know someone who met him years ago when he was doing some weird "teehee find me" shit while wearing a keychain and that friend of mine found him and they've met up and had a conversation and turns out he stole money from his workplace to keep his addiction alive. Pretty disgusting,if you ask me.
For the first time in years of receiving packages, I got one today that was opened for a security check. The box was covered in large, red "SECURITY" stickers.
Did I make it on some list or something?
It was just an art book with cute, clothed girls coming into the United States.
