Read the guide cunts.
we're already 3 posts in in less than a minute. At this rate we'll be sorted in no time at all
Threads are getting out of hand!
so I was thinking about switching my proxy service from treasure-japan
should I pick j-subculture, zenmarket or fromjapan
from what I've seen, j-subculture seems pretty the cheapest out of the three, although zenmarket is pretty, good too
I have no idea what to make of fromjapan's fees though
>searching for out of stock shit from2012
>find it at animepagoda
>fuck the hell yes
>put in order
>haven't charged me, just sitting there "pending"
Have I been memed? Anyone have experience with them?
I've bought a dakimakura cover through FJ, they are pretty nice, but not so sure if the fees are acceptable as they are the only proxy I have used yet.
YOU SPEEDY MOTHERFUCKERS.
Goods arrived within 3 days if with the non Delivery Sunday included.
And she's here together with some porns.
I think this board is the proper place for a buyfag thread honestly. Its arguable that maybe /toy/ could take over, since they, too, have threads similar to this. The downside, though, is that we'll have to deal with others posting non-anime related things more often since /toy/ is more general than this board. I'd rather we have a more anime focused thread. But thats just my opinion.
She actually looks much better up front than just looking at shots from the users and stock photos.
I'm pleasantly surprised.
3-gatsu no lion doujin by Ura-FMO.
Glad this came by because the bulk order from toranoana made Goody Japan hasn't been posted yet. The 3-gatsu no lion doujin by SMUGGLER is there. This will do.
Is it safe to assume she won't be coming out this month?
alphamax Kurumi is one of my favorite figures.
So glad I wasn't a desperate faggot and bought the griffon kurumi like a lot of people did when the griffon meme was pretty alive back then.
Who is that character that doesn't have an scale/figure and you really want one made of now?
There's a ton, but here is probably the one I want the most.
Studs check it, I'm buying one of these in march or April. What say you to that?
by Amie-Grand (Honestly IDK them)
Go bug /jp/'s doll thread about it you'll fit in better there.
For serious, they'll be able to help you when you invariably have questions to ask.
A scale of both of them would be nice.
These four Saemen Faeries
I bought this one, but they are so damn slow to send it
>Bishoujo of Whor.
Why would you do that? Why would you buy that?
I don't understand.
If you know who the character is you know why it should belong in the garbage AND YET... you paid money for it.
Vampire-chan is already getting a scale from Koto.
I need a sensei-succubus figure badly though.
>buying a Danny Smart Doll
>not going with one of the superior ebony versions
I seriously hope you don't do this.
>that moment when you realize the current /a/ moderation is worse than /v/'s
funny, because they already got rid of djt and sadpanda. and there isn't even a proper replacement for the panda either (/h/ sucks balls). at least djt still exist on /jp/, until this faggot decides to delete it there anyway
>tfw people post my 145x145 cropped Tenshi crying image on a daily basis
3 boxes all at once today. I love getting stuff in the mail.
Glorious Meme Nippers, Plamo, and my first (and likely only) Daki. Finding a good looking daki of a girl I like was hard.
dumb baka poster
what the hell is this slut saying? /v/ porn threads are one of the few good threads on that board. i'm one of the people who mobilepost porn there often. and the mods not deleting them instantly is good moderation. it creates entertaining discussion and funny moments
we know djt threads are being deleted because a mod was assblasted due to people not posting strictly about learning japanese and going off-topic. he threatened them, natural thing happened and then he eventually decided to delete the thread every time
sadpanda is either: /qa/ faggots whining = we can't have nice things or faggu paying to get it removed.
>needing to stay in a board that doesn't want you
/pol/ tier autism.
you mean, needing to stay in a board where posters want it to remain but the retarded mod wants to push his own agenda
See this is why the current Moderation system is not working. Not only are the mods understaffed as well as the janitors, but a good amount of them are also corrupt. Hiro needs to start hiring new mods and soon. You cannot have like 12 mods overseeing a site this big. We need mods from all over different timezones as well as Janitors. Is Hiro just clueless ?
i believe the problem is that he simply doesn't give a fuck. he cares about making money but doesn't seem to realize that managing the community properly is necessary to keep the site alive, or he believes it's gotten big enough to the point where that doesn't matter
back to your board >>>/qa/. i like how djt and panda threads get the same type of retarded spammers too, whenever we have them
Anyone here still waiting on shipments from Amiami to Canada that were ordered around mid december?
I ordered pic related but chose SAL instead of EMS and it shipped out Dec 9th
Its been a month now
La Pucelle is the most recent addition to this list.
That's the artwork for the daki, I'm probably not going to open her for a while. Can't keep her on my bed until I get my own place anyways. If all goes well, hopefully sometime this year.
Which figure of the past year has the best butt?
it's always the same replies. "doesn't belong on /a/", "not an argument" and "it's the rules"
doesn't matter what you've been trained to say or what a minority like you wants. people want these threads here. >>>/qa/
>mfw i just bought the last one that Plamoya had
shit, this is my first fig aswell
I hope Oyari does more of him.
Exactly the kind of responses you tards can only come up with. /a/ won't die if buyfag is gone, you're all literal ants.
Not a fan of her character, but I'm still surprised that Rukia from Bleach doesn't have a good scale. Even if it's not that popular anymore, I think a good company making a scale of her would still sell real well.
there are plenty of easy ways for improving the boards -- starting by keeping djt, panda and buyfag. the problem is that the mods are being faggots and trying to force this bullshit on us and the only way around it is by rioting against it (like when they were banning people for posting about valkyrie drive), or hoping they eventually stop deleting threads which might not happen anytime soon and may eventually kill them off
>Anime and Manga
>plastic figures and buyfag cancer is /a/ related because the figure is a replica of an anime or manga character.
It isn't. Nice try though.
"You're not wrong Walter, you're just an asshole."
Buyfag threads always play better to an /a/ audience than a /jp/ one. /jp/ is in not hurry to talk about anime, yet, anime is one of the primary parts of any buyfag thread.
Yes, categorically, in an ideal world, (both of those are very large implicit IFs by the way) buyfags threads are, on paper, more fitting to /jp/ than /a/.
However, /jp/ has their ona-hole threads, which serve a similar function to /a/ 's buyfaggotry, but contain a very different focus.
Remember, /jp/ was created so things without connection to anime had somewhere to go. And so /jp/ developed on a thriving diet of not playing nice with /a/, among others.
Yeah, my problem with /jp/ is that not many of them are even interested in anime anymore and 99% of figures are anime characters. And the anime they do like is all old shit that doesn't get figures anymore.
I haven't been to /jp/ in a long time, but I was under the impression that they were VERY hostile to ANY anime.
From the sound of it, this has relaxed somewhat. Is /jp/ not the same dozen threads moving at a snails pace over weeks anymore?
>Is /jp/ not the same dozen threads moving at a snails pace over weeks anymore?
They have a lot of "This is X. Say something nice about her" etc type shitposting threads like we do. Its just that its always 2hus instead of anime girls. I don't really browse /jp/ anymore because I'm no longer into touhou so I can't really say.
>Buyfag threads always play better to an /a/ audience than a /jp/ one.
That's because of newfriends come and go in buyfag threads, just look at the numerous people offloading their collection here to become full normalfags.
>/jp/ is in not hurry to talk about anime, yet, anime is one of the primary parts of any buyfag thread.
Buyfag is never in a hurry to talk about figures, anime may have played a vital role back in the day, but not anymore. Companies are expanding from anime to various hentai comics. In fact, I would argue the backbone of these threads are the mandarake porn hauls people post.
>However, /jp/ has their ona-hole threads, which serve a similar function to /a/ 's buyfaggotry, but contain a very different focus.
It's still buyfagging, it's even in the guide. I don't understand why you included this.
/jp/ doesn't play nice with people not following board culture, just like how /a/ doesn't like newfags not following /a/ culture. This should be obvious to you.
I'm considering buying someting on manda, and the condition says "not opened / package damaged."
When they say "package damaged", is it usually just a slight bruise, right? Or they put things in shit state to sell too?
I agree, but I will always hesitate to generalize what is 'board culture' specifically, because that could could be any number of things I engage with, ignore or even miss completely.
As anon mentioned above, "Say something nice about X," threads are threads that exist on /a/. However, I have no idea what goes on in them because they don't look interesting or engaging to participate in. (Which is ironic, given that I'm in a meta-disscusion in a buyfag thread, but my faggotry is another matter entirely.)
>Jougasaki sister art by Oyari
Damn, is this one another doujin?
Thanks anon. Guess I will just hope I'm not the unlucky one that gets a damaged figure.
Can you two stop circle-jerking each other?
Seriously, if you're going to flagrantly parade around how proud you are of your /co/ buying habits, at least get something like pic related that's only a somewhat shameful rather than going full retard and buying a character who's only function is to pander to those who would be offended by actual fanservice, or even the suggestion of a personality.
(Yes, I'm rather upset.)
No, just a bad figure
>Can you two stop circle-jerking each other?
buyfag does it all the time though, what's so different about it this time?
The girl in your picture looks like hipster garbage anyway.
There's a figure oriented community at myfigurecollection, you should check it out sometime.
>mfw buyfag tripfag left the threads to work for Shaft
It's not fair
Well, I'd like >>152053739 too, but these have been on the list longer.
I got some adhesive wall hooks from Daiso to hang up my wallscrolls. They are a lot stronger than I thought.
Start with plamo like gundams. Or repainting prize figures. If you like these sort of things then you can start with simple kits with a small amount of parts.
I'm not the owner of the image. sorry. I just thought it was useful to save.
Fuck I was worried when pic related was stopped by canadian customs. It's not loli but some customs officials are overzealous.
It went through unopened but those fuckers hit me for a $32 handling fee just for pulling it aside to read a fucking packing slip.
There is no legal risk.
One american got charged (and the charges later tossed) after bringing in todler porn manga, but it seems he was already on a watch list before trying to enter canada. The minute he tried to enter his laptop was seized and analyzed for all image files. That is not normal and only happens when FBI have put people on suspected pedo watch lists.
The worst that normally happens when importing is that customers declare it "obscene with no artistic merit" and have it destroyed. The rules for that are vague and a lot of manga gets seized for that reason.
Bad choice of image as they released that exact version as a figure.
If you mean a non-SD version in 1/6 then yes I want one too.
Both of them, among many others appear to still be up.
This retard used a ton of superglue to glue her earring back.
Got in my order of Dakis today buyfags. Got 2 more packages in the mail, and a third about to ship from zenmarket. Was a good winter season for me buyfag wise.
May that Council look after your health and prosperity for years to come
I want a Tanpopo figure from that series. the rest of cute but tanpopo is love.
I'd be fine with Tanpopo too. Sucks there wasn't even a prize figure for the show.
I want a figure with cat-eared hat acccessory and optional ballgag.
Demi-chan has aired one episode, but vampire already has a figure up for sale
Koto's lost it
Seems like a good gamble. If you can predict the meme girl of the season you can make it big. She reminds me of Kirino. Same art style and fang.
>not buying the real thing
I have those but I don't have the equipment or willingness to make them look nice. They sit in their box and are a problem/gift for future me.
So I was going to get one of these for my sister believing that "smart doll" had some unique feature like mirroring it's clothes to a software application like a digital mannequin or something.
Instead it just has a retarded flash drive in it...so, yeah.
>we'll never get a Wendy scale
Both. I've been using scissors for my gunpla. I want to get some god-hand meme nippers.
I like to lurk the shinki and friends thread and see all the cool stuff you guys put together.
Keep on keeping on. They'll get it down someday. It just comes down to when someday is.
Anyone know if there are non promo/stock images of pic related(final product maybe)? Wondering if they even exist at the moment but I've looked everywhere.
Surrender, or face the almighty power of this decisive battle.
Plum's Momoka. They're going to fuck it up.
You don't need to spend scalper prices for meme hands unless you're building something like ship models that have incredably tiny and fragile pieces.
A pair of Tamiya or Xuron nippers work fine, just pick up a cheap hobby knife and high grit paper to go with it (The auto parts store sells 1000 grit). Beginners just try to get Godhands because then they think they don't have to do nub cleanup.
Yes. Early promo stuff used F.A.G. but they seem to have caught on to its English meaning.
Just a question. Since it's already inside the country, do SAL packages have a possibility of getting stuck at USPS for quite a while?
Hopefully the smart doll technology will improve in the near future. I'd like one that maybe functions as a flashdrive/projector. Think about it, you turn it on and images shoot out its ass or eyeballs.
I don't understand what it is you want from me.
You want the guide? There exist several links to it but this one is my personal favorite. Enjoy.
Ok thanks. Hopefully I can get the package before weekend. This is the first time I tried SAL and surprisingly, the wait is not that bad like what that anon said about it being viable for west coast.
I am having some difficulties processing your request. Please stand by.
I'm counting on winter wonderfest to deliver my husband to me. I didn't even get why people got so autistic about husbandos/waifus until now.
Here is the link to the tweet I got the images from.
If you follow it to the posters main page you can find a link to his pixiv and blog.
Ok. I'll bite.
I saw some pictures from the users and the Queen of Hearts turned out pretty well. Though it's not the re-release one so I don't know.
Here we go.
Take that Stardust off the list this instant
There are some here.
Well apparently the wonfes pic was taken first. The most recent one was the pictures posted in Amiami.
Been browsing the comment sections. Seems like this released in China first.
It's finally complete!
I can now summon the High School Idol Demon.

Saying 'no u' isn't an argument.
The fact that you're not self aware of the nature of what the fuck an opinion is dictates strongly that you're fucking retarded.
Rehashing shitty ad hominem does you no favors either.
I haven't been here in months.
But sure, lets be a pussy and pretend like it's one person who solely thinks you're a faggot if that makes you feel better.
Now keep meta posting and derail everything.
>I'm a different anon you fuck
>responding without stating so
It's not even relevant when you picked up that faggot's torch
To state the figure is shit.
Read what I fucking said.
Now fuck off.
>thinks you're a
Haven't even posted about the figure yet, m8. But your lack of actual contribution makes me think that "haven't posted in months" is bullshit.
But, enough about you.
Why don't more figures have wooden bases?
I'm kind of torn. I'd like more ornate bases in general, the kind the figure kind of interacts with, but wood seems a happy medium between that and the plain plastic disks we usually get.
It doesn't. But you're supporting the degradation of the industry by buying such shit.
Atler hasn't made and leaps and bounds in their figure quality in half a decade, along with GSC and any subsidiary, but they jack up the prices and still pump out fucking garbage like Love live knowing retards like yourself will buy it.
I gave an opinion and you got so fucking butthurt you at first dismissed it, then just reverted to your pussy hugbox mode.
Again, fuck off back to MFC or wherever you're from.
The plastic disks are such an eye sore. Many manufacturer's don't factor in that the base is often as visible as the figure. Native is at least one of the few manufacturers that consistently gives a little bit of a shit about their bases.
Respect to anyone who fixes the boring bases that comes with most figures (pic related). I'm currently too busy to do so for most of my own.
I wish I had the skill for that. As it stands about the most I might be able to do is spice up one of my bunny figs with some playing cards or something else Casino themed. Eventually. Maybe.
I called out on starting this meta-horse shit and I continued responding despite knowing better. You're seemingly such a fucking newfag that any sense of self moderation is lost on you entirely.
How quickly does seasonal merchandise start popping up? Would I be able to find some cute witches or angels if I visit in a few weeks?
One day I will do this shit. It's why I started this hobby.
For now I'll just be doing scale figs and Nendos. Then move to gunpla. Crafting dioramas are really awesome and rewarding.
If you ever need any inspiration, the custom generals on /toy/ is a great start.
Neat. Gonna try it first with Nendos. Then this one. I don't plan to add fishes but still having a good underwater setup with her in a dome is my goal.
I just preordered shinji ikari raising project #17 and two evangelion mugs!
I got one mug where shinji is holding a mug and glaring at you, while the mug he holds has a glaring shinji on it.
I also got a misato drinking from a mug and looking indifferent. I don't get visitors anymore because my neighbour got thrown in jail or is homeless or something and can't visit because of the restraining order he is under covers my hours cause it's too close to his ex's, but if I did have visitors they would be so jealous.
I guess I'll believe you are being honest. I don't have a blog, but maybe I should. But it's not my life this time. I feel bad for neighborbuddy though. He's probably homeless tonight, but sleeping on the streets for a few nights isn't the worst thing ever, what's worse is what's coming. It costs 10k to defend yourself, at least, and I don't think he's got it. He might just hafta plead guilty and hope he avoids jail. Still a bummer. I've been there but I got off with a bit of luck in the sense I was actually innocent.
I'm willing to take a chance with e2046 at this point
How is this shit justifiable? My December 31 order is yet to be shipped. I don't remember such delays last year.
This is the mug I mean. One is Misato and the other is Shinji like depicted on Misato's mug.
I can't wait to drink in indifference!
