My pre-orders are looking good this year. Always something to look forward to each month.
Oh golly gosh, baby fat preorders closed.
Only figure I'd get from that list is Megumi and I'd rather wait for the GSC or kimono one.
Wow, the standard size phone case is bigger then expected. Really like it so far. Size comparison on my HTC One M8.
Hope Hobby Stock make a Tamamo and Ushiwakamaru version case.
I see. Good thing Japan decide to make it a case compatible with other phone outside of iphone. Just hope more character get case like this.
All I want is a Imu dakimakura cover.
It's a shame that she's so unpopular though, a lot of the other Senran's probably will get their covers first.
Finally got a second detolf in prep for the 6 scales i got on pre order that are coming out over the next 3 months. Was able to spread what I already have out so I think it looks nicer now, even though I now notice the light strips in the old (left) detolf are a warmer temp than the new ones even though they are supposedly the same. I'll replace them soon.
Wow, slolita already has macross and netoge dakis, the chinks sure are fast to milk the seasonal memes.
Jokes on you, I made a pact of getting every Megumi figure coming out. I hope aniplex doesn't be a cunt with their orders cause I'm not americafag
Are you gay for buying something like this in a buyfag thread?
So I'd need a soldering iron, led strips, and what else? To me it looks like the leds are just adhered to the bottoms of the shelves, so I'm assuming it's not too difficult but I'm not sure on exactly what I would need to do.
There's a tutorial some german dude made.
You feel upon my elaborate trickery, it is actually censored in the original listing as well.
What's the cheapest preorder item I can buy off amiami that doesn't release until near the end of May?
Context: I don't get paid until next Monday so I ordered a cheap strap over the weekend and combined it with my monthly order; lo and behold, it released the next fucking day and when amiami recalculated my order they put the payment due-date for 2-days from now instead of the normal week.
You can't extend the deadline by adding an item if you already get the ready notification. Ask for extension or just don't pay until you get the money and hope they don't close the payment window within the time frame.
Or borrow money from friend.
>you'll never collect figures with Mizuna Rei
I thought it was an approved strategy to combine your order with a pre-order item to belay the payment request?
So for clarification, that normally works but doesn't if you've already been sent the payment request?
I'm boned then. I've already had several strikes on my account.
From the Payment/Shipping page, "Please note that combining orders will not extend your payment deadline."
I'm pretty sure you can't extend the deadline by adding a preorder after you get the payment request.
The only way around this would have been if you followed release schedules and added a preorder in before Amiami got the figure in stock.
>is she still a fat fuck or has she finally lost some weight?
She's riding her Suzuha's bicycle a lot
Can someone give me links or names for these? Been trying to find them on my own on MFC but I don't really know what I am doing.
Thanks. I'll have to email them and ask (beg) for an extension.
I blame Alter for this though.
Having Velvet and the re-releases of Gwendolyn/Mercedes all arrive in the same month completely ass-raped my budget.
Syaro release date when?
This. She's a fucking awful character, and Katsuragi is quickly catching up to that status as well with how much they're shitting on her and the "Character" they've given here in the last few games.
How sorayama's getting away with japan censorship?
So I have 3 things coming that I want combined. How do you fill 2you4's transfer request form out?
Do I put them all in one transfer request? And do I list the specific name of what the item is, or do I just put something like "doujinshi x 1"?
Also I have 2 different packages coming from toranoana. How would I make that clear?
>earthquake in central Japan 30mins ago.
This is what would happen.
Surprised it got socioeconomic disparities right.
I'd assume so.
Every time one of my packages came in though they always shipped it out immediately, but that might be because they see i have no other requests up.
Try contacting them if you're not sure, their customer service sucks though.
For sender's name just list all the shops you bought from. Under package details, make a separate entry for each package, like Toranoana-1 x 1, Toranoana-2 x 12 or whatever it is you have coming.
Or you could make 3 separate transfer requests and then e-mail them asking to combine them all. Not sure if they'll charge extra for that though.
How the hell did this one sell out its preorders, but the others didn't for her?
Was just wondering since it still has the same "3 per customer' bit that the others had and such. But I just can't even fathom how, even then, it's sold out whatever shipment they have.
> new figures come in the mail
> nowhere to put them
> bookcase is already full of figures
>no room for another due to having a roomlett.
> just stash them in ny closet which is quickly getting filled with boxes
Just fuck my shit up
I got mine yesterday. the face looks better than the other version. at least she actually smiles this time. But the castoffable part looks really shitty this time And I mean more so than before.
If you only care about displaying her naked then this is probably the best version of her so I am happy that I ordered her. Not as good as your average Saber figure for that price but considering she is from a much less popular VN this is probably as good as it gets.
Bertille is easily my favorite character from WR, but I just wish we would've got one with her either in her uniform or her casual clothing. I really can't complain though since she has more than most of the other cast asides Celia.
>I just wish we would've got one with her either in her uniform or her casual clothing
Yeah I wish too. Do figures from a lewd VN with a proper armor on sell that much worse than these highly lewd figures? Because I would honestly like a Bertille in her full armor.
I have no idea honestly. I just find it amazing about every one for Bertille is just her in a bikini. Even her one piece would've been nice.
>Can someone explain the detolf meme to me?
So I can put my meme figures, which I bought with meme money, from a meme shop, meme shipping them to my meme country, using a meme shipping service, into my meme displayer to show off their meme bodies and everymeme who visits me can look at my epic memes.
Also what >>141602433 says
>to show off their meme bodies and everymeme who visits me can look at my epic memes.
don't lie anon. we all know that you only do it to post images on a meme board.
the water looks like jello
Dude, that's garage kit. Figures with proper armour like the VN depicted would be sky-rocketing-ly expensive.
Ohh yeah, it's also good to see her in school-swimsuit. So far, only Celia gets it though. Too bad.
And I'm sorry to be a bit off-topic here, but Bertille-sama's bust is a astonishing 102cm I cup. Is it legit for French or even most of the Western girls to have such thing, or is it just a meme from the Nips?
>Dude, that's garage kit. Figures with proper armour like the VN depicted would be sky-rocketing-ly expensive
No? There are lots of figures with proper armor that are affordable. Just look at any given Saber. And even if it is 2000 yen more, so what? I already pay 150+ Euro for a single figure, might aswell pay a little more and get exactly what I want.
The thing is that if the source is lewd than most companies automatically make lewd figures for that source because they assume that this is the only thing fans want.
I don't understand how people even get mad about delays anymore.
When I order a figure and it releases on date X I will never actually expect it to release then. Date X is more like the time to check for how much it has been delayed, not the date when your figure arrives.
>Good news, we were able to secure your order.
>Your order includes pre-order items and is scheduled to be available in May-2016. Shipping costs will be calculated and the order invoiced when it is available for shipment. We will notify you if there are any further changes to the order.
I guess that week and a half of waiting finally paid off.
You're probably going to bully me nowbut just wanted to show you my frames that finally arrived today. I had to fold posters a bit since frames were slightly too small for them, and unfortunately other one got wrinkled in the process. However I think they look cool.
Try $465 canadian.
I really want to grab it while I can seeing as its such an old figure. I can only find it on one shop online (Nippon Yasan) and I REALLY don't want to lose this opportunity.
You know it
I'm also considering the other figure instead
I'm really worried about that too. But even if it were a bootleg, I would still have a figure of Nana. I need something sentimental now that the series seems to be coming to a close
Yeah, I always find it strange how people make such a big deal about it. You're waiting many months or years from the announcement, prototype, preorder, eventual release and international shipping anyway. A few days more or less are a drop in the ocean.
Just idols, but apparently anime will have self insert girl character. I've heard only one drama track and it was a weird mix up of straight and gay pandering, so I'll just stick to songs.
You'd really be okay with spending over $400 if it turned out to be a bootleg? Seriously, no regrets if it looks like shit?
Personally I think you'd be better off setting up Mandarake alerts and checking YJA every now and then.
Quick question. I received the payment request from AmiAmi for my order and now I want to add a Nendo. Can I add it to my previous order ? I combine them although one is waiting for payment ? It´s been a while since I bought a figure.
Nigger it's on manda right now. No need for alerts.
I'm sure it can be found elsewhere too. It's not that rare.
I-It's not like I have found it for you, you stupid idiot.
There's also black one for 14k with stained chest. You should be able to find it yourself if you're not a complete retard.
Red one. Look at photos and see a horrible damage that has been done to an inner box.
I did, but I still wanted a confirmation.
>In-stock items + Pre-order items scheduled to be released the current month.
>Orders whose payments are not past due.
Sorry for living in a shitty 3rd world country that restricts the number of orders I can have delivered from other countries. Thank you for nothing anon.
You'd get an e-mail stating if your order was past due. The order would also be locked from adding new things to it on their site if you tried. Since you've only gotten the payment request, yes you can add other things to the order. It won't change the payment due date though, even if the other item is a pre-order. Although that last part might just be a bug in their system.
>Tfw got my first figure ever yesterday in the mail
>Have already ordered Hanayo and Rin too to have all the first years
I think I'm going to end blowing all of my salary in Love Live merch, this buyfag shit is addictive.
Alright, I read the guide, but I might be retarded and I couldn't find what I was looking for.
I'm looking for a SS that could buy me this. Looking at it, it's just a tote bag, no big deal right? Except that it's not being sold online anywhere, only in vending/pachinko machines in some in-person stores. Buying it online is going to be inevitably inflated, so I'd like to find a service that can go there in person and get it for me, but looking at the guide, most of the proxy services just handle online stuff. I don't really know what to do.
You'll either need a personal proxy (harder to find for many reasons) or suck it up and pay the premium. Personal proxy is gonna want me to go get it anyways. Probably best bet is look on YJA and normal proxy.
You can try your luck and buy it later on Mandarake. I doubt there will be hoards of people who want to buy it and Mandarake usually have many unsold tote bags. Also you will probably regret buying it later especially if you want to work that hard for it. I mean anime isn't even over yet and your love for it might be not that strong after some time.
The original price is only 1200Y which is why I was considering it, plus tote bags are an actual thing you can use (which is why I want to buy this instead of their can badges, which are ~860Y and much less practical). I'm waiting on more of the show to air before I really Invest, but with a limited edition actually useful item that's cute and not too expensive I'd rather go for it now.
I also paid out the ass for Hisoka's (HxH) figure a year or so after it released and while I doubt a tote of a show nobody besides me likes will appreciate that much, I still hold that fear in my mind.
I could also do this if I can't find it or it's too much online, the tote I get it printed on would probably be better quality. But I'd like to support the show if at all possible.
What's the best Kotori figure there is out there?
I want to into buyfagging. I live in Hungary and I want to buy this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kill-la-Kill-Matoi-Ryuuko-Nendoroid-407-Anime-Figure-10cm-4-New-in-Box-/262332661741?hash=item3d143ebfed:g:IigAAOSwZQxW5Px4 . Is it a rip-off or is it legit?
>Version: Made in China,China Version.
>Normal shops sell her for 10k+ JPY
>Is it a rip-off or is it legit?
Gee I wonder.
Start with something like AmiAmi or Mandarake.
She had that price when it was:
>Release Date 2014/08
Figures are one time only. Manufacturer produces a strict amount of figures and then never produces them again. The only way you can get one of the old figures is to buy them from other people and it's up to them to set the price.
Haven't posted in a while. Enjoy my shit taste as well.
how are HLJ shipping prices vs Ami? I'm considering just letting my Ami account banned, and POing my existing preorders on HLJ since it has it all in stock, and I could dump the preorders I no longer want from Ami. Wonder if I'd regret cutting the preowned opportunities out though..
Does the new Ami storefront mean more future preowned--like Manda level?
is there any online figure shop that delivers worldwide?
I don't really care about nendos anymore so whether they get a rerelease is not a concern of mine, but the grail/hunt factor of the hobby is what makes it fun and worth talking about in these threads. Exclusivity is a good thing. It's practically the foundation of capitalism.
What. How did you get an access to the Internet and who is supposed to deliver your plastic butts to your hut? Won't your tribe kill you for buying asian women?
I don't know for sure but I have seen Africa listed besides South America in the shipping costs. It's in description of some items on Mandarake. Just try a couple of sites - add an item to the card and see the shipping options. Otherwise find a proxy or a forwarder who can buy your shit for you and then send to your wikiup.
I already ordered and received one dakimakura and one mousepad of my waifu, but the website I ordered the dakimakura from does not sell figures, and there's no other Ali Express figure seller as reliable as the one I bought the mousepad from.
I live on the third floor of a flat/apartment building in a city with basic infrastructures, and most people are literate, there are toilets, etc.
Where do you think I should order from?
Cannot have it uploaded right now.
Old phone says out of memory.
My room mates use a newer brand of phone, will try to use it hidden when they arrive from work.
Please tell you're the child of some high-level, nigh-untouchable politician. It's the only way I can think of that you'd have enough money to buyfag.
Too bad I'll never get the Uri-tan Nendo to cover in sesame oil.
What do you mean "look down"? Are you 7 feet tall? I don't think anyone actually puts stuff on the bottom shelf, or if they do it's because they already have the detolf lifted a foot off the ground.
I watch anime for a few hours and this happens.
Holy shit anon. How the fuck do you even have internet?
Some loot from Miku Expo in Dallas. Anyone else here go?
Listen--I didn't know I wanted to stop, either. But once your renounce your hoarding and clusterfuck ways you will find the room of freedom your subconscious dearly longs for.
>even if the us $ to yen ratio is shit.
I was under the impression that anything over 100 is good because it was designed to be a 100:1 ratio.
Is this a "It used to be 120:1 so now since it's not shit it's too strong!"
I just ordered something from amiami that says it comes out May 2016.
If it's mid-May 2016 now, when do I get it?
We're all addicts. Admitting that is the first step to recovery. No need to rush, take as much time as needed.
I can tolerate anything above 100:1, but higher is better for me personally and I don't care what that
Likely early next month
Most releases trend towards the end of the month
My Saitama nendo just arrived today and i gotta say that i'm pretty dissapointed in his head being a solid lump since you can't swap faceplates on him because of it. Otherwise it's a pretty good nendo.
My Miss Monochrome collection is slowly but surely growing.
I got a couple of Posters that advertise the first season and a wall scroll based off a card from her in GFB there on the top.
There's a small flyer for Poker face there on the left, A store exclusive bonus button for poker face and a coin case next to it.
On the far right is a newspaper ad for black or white, I bought the newspaper just because that full body shot of her black or white CD cover seems to be unavailable elsewhere, I just trashed the rest of the newspaper and kept that page.
Finally there's an alternative version of My Only Story, this one was exclusive to gamers, glad I was able to find it. There's only a couple of alternative store exclusive versions of CDs left to hunt for.
As always please support my waifu if she catches your eye, thank you.
Well, most of my flowers died. On the seed package it says to plant them in a place that gets 6-8 hours of sun and I've been worried because it was overcast for so long that when the sun came out over the weekend I put them outside. The sun killed most of them in two hours and all of them in one base. So I have to start over in one base. They clean up just fine so I'm not worried about the soil ruining them as much anymore and the bases are detachable anyway so the figures are never in harm.
I don't know how you can ask people to support youre waifu.
I get jealous when people post about mine.
>Tfw if I was a completely asocial bastard I would probably fill my room with these sick looking figures even though it would look like a creep santuary then
>Tfw when I'm not so I have limited myself to my waifus nenoroid
seems cool anon, I would be too worried about damaging my figures. Make sure to post the results once you succeed
>caring what people think of you
I must get her, but there's a reprint ver soon? Because now for 20k you can find her even unopened.
>my waifu is pork
>she got shitposted back to hell in buyfag threads that most everyone hates her now
Most of you have mainstream waifus anyway. Then they get all excited posting their low quality photos too.
Listen everyone, niche and DSLR only here.
My waifu is not mainstream but she always get mentioned in the waifu threads. I don't frequent them, I just think to myself "Cool, that's the way other anons love her. I guess I should strive my best to make her happy my own way." and let it go.
>not having a waifu
truly the brand o' a pleb
>there are malawis who actively post on /int/ and /a/
how do you even watch anime there? Won't you get beheaded for having anime figures or something?
>watching Black Rock Shooter one day I was ill
>emotionless mute girl kicking ass in 3d while boring 2d shit happens
>just want more of her, make her my first and only waifu
It's gotta be true love
Keep waiting, you don't find her, she finds you.
You guys think there's a chance of getting a Sodachi fig in the future?
A few years ago I would've been pretty certain but Monogatari hype has peaked and died down somewhat. I'm worried she might've missed the boat.
Show me your one of a kind/rare collectors items.
Rarest in my collection, at least.
People bet on Nano and Hakase nendo re-releases and that hasn't happened yet. Kill la Kill isn't popular enough anymore to get new figures, so chances of re-releases for any of the existing ones are pretty low.
No, just because a figure didn't get a second release doesn't make it rare. By that logic you can just post any number of figures that got one release and it would qualify under your definition of "rare", which would mean pretty much everyone's collection.
Only reason it is expensive is because it is Yoko and the other reasons I previously stated.
I hope you learned your lesson. Those Anons outplayed you.
Then we're arguing semantics. Rarity can be defined as scarcity, which in this case, has driven the price up. Are all expensive items rare? No. But do prices of items go up as the result of its demand and low supply? In this case, yes.
Not all figures without re-releases go up in price because there aren't demand for them causing them to shelf-warm and remain in circulation for longer making them far more common. You can make the argument that unpopular figures that get limited runs are more rare, and I'd agree with that criteria.
One of my oldest figures, Koto Noriko Takaya 1/6, was the exact same price as I bought it in 2007 when I checked last year but there was a time when it didn't pop up as often as other popular figures. It's all relative.
It's like arguing that First Edition Charizard Shadowless isn't rare because I can go on ebay right now and find it for $2,000.
>Tfw realization sinking in that you will never have the biggest shinobu collection
>mfw I have to buy a new Yoko 5th Anniversary figure because Boota broke off
Become increasingly obsessed with it as you look all over until you finally find it and throw away vast sums of money at it that you know you shouldn't spend but that you can't stop yourself from spending. You will then feel a brief shimmer of shame as you think about what you've done, but then the joy of succeeding in your hunt will wash over you and you will know that no matter what anyone else says - it was worth it.
It's ok with shit from mobile games or VNs that are out of character.
Muramasa is completely out of character, except for that one figure in her default dress with massive weld on the tits, and is mostly based of illustrations for instance.
Why the fuck would I spend a hundred dollars on a plastic representation of a character I know nothing about beyond looks? I need to really like them to waste that kind of money.
>Muramasa is completely out of character
Not really, the maid outfit is from in-game CG (Janen Hen as well), and the roll she plays for Kageaki could certainly justify a nurse outfit as well. Wedding dress makes sense too.
The only one that stands out as weird is the race queen outfit, but seeing as how Namaniku designed it and its in on the rear cover of the official Muramasa artbook, I think its justified.
Going to the New York show at the end of the month. I didn't realize those electronic glowsticks they were selling on that campaign thing could change color, I would have bought one had if I had realized. Any chance they were selling them at the venue?
