What is the chance that the chinks actually succeed with this
What else should I do while I'm in town? I've got a few extra days before and after.
They ban you if you do that a lot of times.
I cancelled a lot of figures since I buy here and no harm was made as long as you buy more than you cancel your items. You can cancel one of your item without a doubt.
I have 10 items pre-ordered and want to cancel 2 of them.
I was thinking just asking nicely, if I get a no that'd be ok, but I get the impression they don't even tell you no and just ban you instead, so I'm a bit worried.
I never cancelled 2 items at the same time, so I can't recommend you that.
But really, you can cancel one of them, they will cancel it without saying anything.
Just say that you can't afford all of your preorders because it's a hard month for you with a nice thanks and an apologize for the inconvenience. I think they are more angry when you don't pay whereas they already prepared the parcel, it's not even the case here.
>If after a few hours we're not back, read the message again :-^)
What did they mean by this?
When should we start to male our Winfes bingo sheet? I find it fun.
Remember that possesion/importing and shipping are ruled by s sightly different set of law, Using the federal postal system to ship pornography is still considered a crime, and though not usually enforced is enough to at least get the materials seized and destroyed.
Good luck with that though, I haven't heard of any big arrival ports holding something that long around these days.
Post characters you wish to get a figure, despite knowing that they will get one.
Not terrible, they have done decent work before. I pity the fool that preorders this and gets fucked though.
It's time. Again.
I meant characters of which you know that they will NOT get any figure.
>Not terrible, they have done decent work b
>Yeah, i know, UC making one is like she's not getting anything aswell
Pretty much this. And it's been so long since they announced her figure that I think it's not coming out at all.
Would suck if it ended up being good while running out of stock though.
Amiami seem to only stock it for Japan only(?) as well.
Well waiting for reviews is the best bet.
Anju figure when
>fine then, I can already gather ideas about things I wish for yet never will see.
I've heard from a certain person that amiami actually accepts prepaid cards as long as it's visa or mastercard. Does that check out?
It just don't make any sense.
Why won't the make a ion figure when they made both ayesha and escha (under kt) and now arnice, lilysse, rorona, totori and 3 plachta (new vision toys + alter).
Whenever they release new character goods ion and SC in general always sell out instantly.
I wish we get a scale of her in the little noah outfit
I still want a Kuon fig.
Comes with some special edition of the game.
Sorry for that misuderstanding caused by my incompetence. I simply failed to write "not" in my 1st post
I need the Miyuk to get an idol figure.
SAL package only took 2 weeks to get to Canada during the Christmas rush, nice.
Short of making a specific thread, I think this is the best place to ask this question. Is anyone here on the secret s/a/nta anti-grinch squad? I haven't received an assignment yet. I emailed Santa Loli a few days ago but she hasn't responded.
Literally clash of clans but with this cutie instead
You're right. On second thought, the Precure general would probably have been a better place to ask. Sorry, anon. I mean why the fuck would anyone ever think the thread about buying shit might have some people in it who were in an event that involved anons buying shit for each other.
holy fuck someone make this happen please
All of my pictures would be boring anyways since I don't have anything to make nice backgrounds. And I'm not bringing my figures to a park or something else like they do at MFC.
If they become at least acceptable, it's a big leap for me.
You can do better than acceptable, even if you just use your desk it still looks better than plain white. Here's one of my pictures, the background is just discord on my monitor but it looks an awful lot better than a plain white one.
That is correct, however most people that make lightboxes follow this guide without doing anything else.
really hoping gsc annouces a sodachi scale.
they did yotsugi already
Thanks for the tips. But lighting looks better with the lightbox, doesn't it? As in, it looks SHIT without one except if you already are pretty good at photography.
If I print something nice to be the background of the lightbox, I imagine it would look nice?
> it looks SHIT without one except if you already are pretty good at photography.
>>152292064 here , that's not true either. You can make decent looking pictures by just knowing pretty simple basics (exposure triangle mostly) and no more than your own room's lighting. As long as you aren't shooting with an old cellphone, auto ISO and without a tripod you can get decent pictures on pretty much any setting.
How come there are two Phantom World figures announced but there is no Hibike figure? I thought her series was infinitely more popular. Weird.
With Fate/Extella being delivered this Tuesday, it already will be.
I'd be happy seeing just the Yuigahama prototype really.
If it's a character I like, then I don't mind if f/go gets figures.
I was just thinking the same thing. I'd probably (try to) make a good Lancer Saber my last one before jumping off the Saber train... Unless that set of racing queens comes out well, but I think those are made to order so they'd be hard to get.
Blackberry Q10 with normal room lighting
I think I did pretty good
Definitely wouldn't mind a scale of Lancer Arturia. That scale of Alfoso looks nice too. Some more Mordred would be nice too. And something of Nitocris and Alex. And I'll buy as many figs of Karna and Lancelot as I can get.
Yes. All the figs.
>Not even one year
Pfft, small time.
I'd love a decent C.C. figure, but I'll probably have to wait for season 3 first.
I'd love a La Pucelle figure.
There are some nice C.C. figs out there already at least. Mostly prizes, but nice prizes.
Still, would be nice to see something really high-end for Resurrection.
Like a GEM fig of her Empress outfit.
Yet the illustration that figure is based on only shows half the bike and a severely damaged Snow, the manga and even the series showed partially destroyed bikes that way.
Bitching about it every single time the figure is posted when it was intended to be that way is just beyond retarded
It's never better than Amiami on preorders, the prices are always higher and the catalog of preorder products that can be shipped overseas is just too small, the western amazon sites are just laughable.
All of the purchases I've made have come in great condition and in a reasonable amount of time (well, for shipping to Australia anyway).
I've never pre-ordered anything from any site, so I can't make any comparison there.
>All of the purchases I've made have come in great condition and in a reasonable amount of time
Compared to what? Also, even if you are buyin from amazon japan the number of items that can be shipped to other countries is just minuscule compared to the catalog sites like amiami and HLJ get.
my dumbass didn't even think of that
I figure /jp/'s got to have some good stuff aswell
Selling these figs from Australia. PM me.
I don't have the room for more 1/4s
what is the current status of this meme?
GIVE ME A ILLYA NENDO
IT'S ALL I WANT
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO FOR IT GSC?
Amazon.jp is good. Amazon.com I've had bad experiences. Their packaging and packaging process is shit so never order books or anything you care about the box condition. Haven't tried 3rd party sellers on Amazon.
even chouun binned to 7,5k at HS
Need some help. Who the fuck is this? I swear I've seen this character before, looks super 90's, but I can't place her.
Behold shitposter, gaze upon my collection and despair.
Hopefully the HF movies will increase the chances of Illya finally getting her nendo.
Honestly I'm pretty surprised a Prisma Illya nendo hasn't been made considering the series' popularity and how well the Mahou Shoujo design would translate to chibi form.
bikini miyu to accompany with them
Now I can show off how much of a loser I am to my work colleagues when it rains in the big city.
Erina still best girl, tailred the cutest
>about to buy the detolf case
>99 shipping fee
This was shown last wonfes but was never added to MFC
Amakuni is working on one as well
Do you guys bother adding prize figures to your MFC owned list? I'm probably just being autistic, but it feels kind of weird to put those on the same level as my scale collection and count them as true collector items.
If previous 1:1s are an indicative then no, she's not hollow. The master prototype is usually made out of Styrofoam and some epoxy clay for the fine details on the outside, so yes it's light as hell but certainly not hollow.
AFTER HAVING A FIGHT WITH MY BANK THEY FINALLY ALLOWED ME TO MAKE AN INTERNATIONAL CARD AND ON THE SAME DAY THAT THIS HAPPENED THAT IS TODAY I HAVE FINALLY BOUGHT THE FIRST FIGURE OF MY WAIFU THROUGH AMIAMI. YES, YES. MY SAGA AS A BUYFAGGER BEGINS HERE. THANK YOU UNIVERSE.
I use MFC to catalogue everything I own related to this hobby. I appreciate every part my collection without shame, and some prize figures have value beyond their MSRP.
Having prizes listed alongside scales in MFC doesn't bother me at all. Putting prizes and scales side-by-side on a shelf on the other hand, that grinds my autism.
Guys I lost my Mage's ribbon, what should I do?, can I buy a replacement from Alphamax or am I fucked?
I paid the order less than 20 minutes after I received the invoince e-mail which was just now. I feel like a good loyal customer. I was so anxious. Sorry about the caps lock.
Thank you for being a caring friend but I want to be always loyal to my waifu.
I sometimes have problems with my bank when I order from Mandarake. My bank always rings me to check that it's actually me. It never happens with amiami or anywhere else I order from.
Oh nice, Chinese bootleg version, and by that I mean oiled up version
Only state of the art ones are capable of getting close, and by that I mean the ones worth half a million dollars not the shit toys you get for a few grand.
Also, statues are indeed handcrafted for the most part.
They are not made for mass production, when one figure means spending hundreds in quality materials and can take a few days to make.
3D printers are not a mass production method and it will never be cheaper than injection molds and Chinese sweatshops.
So when are these supposed to be getting released?
You are retarded if you think 3D printers are viable methods of mass production, they are made for prototyping and the materials are pretty damn expensive if you go for high end ones.
It has more idols, yes. Miku is far more popular though. If you add every idol against every miku then volks will get more money from the former just because there are many more.
I know that they've announced a Remilia. Can't remember any others.
Only interested in the SDM Girls personally. So I hope they make figures of them to go with Remilia. Wouldn't mind a Youmu too.
>mfw Gudako is getting one before Illya
Eh some prize figures end up looking pretty good.
Does anyone have any experience buying something from yahoo auctions that required an application? "Accepting application for participation" is what it is. Would any forwarding service be willing to fill it out to purchase the item?
I've been waiting for a good Duce figure for years now. It's finally time. This is perfect
I want more KanColle scales. I'm not too picky about which girl. I just hope that they make some more.
6.8K for this Miku on AmiAmi. Should I do it /a/? Don't have any Miku figures yet, and this is one of my favorite designs.
When is best
namegetting a scale?
That's what the favorites button is for.
>Jacket tied round the waist
>Rolled up sleeves
This is hitting all my buttons, PLEASE let it be good
Doesn't aniplex have their own line of chibis. Aren't they doing Kimonos with it? There was a Saber.
Oh well. I have to get these. I sold off the scales, but I'm definitely getting this to go with Madoka.
Not unexpected, but sad nonetheless
Historically barely anything gets delayed because of Chinese new year, regular new year however brings plenty of delays.
Also its not like figures are literally finished a few days before they are sold, they must be shipped, handled and whatnot, if you look at Orchid seeds schedule china is done like a month before figures hit the shelves of regular stores.
I want my own lil' retarded witch.
But I like the illustrations the Kotobukiya set is based on more than the freeing poses.
Anyone own this witch that can speak for her quality? Reading through the comments on MFC it looks like she starts to have issues leaning after a while.
Fujoshi on suicide watch.
Do native products often differ this much from the prototypes?
Guys, my wife is getting irritated that I collected so quickly. I ran out of room to display most of the figures and stored them in my theater closet. She gets angry every time she sees the postman drop a package for me. I just tell her only a few packages a month. However, each of those packages are like 5 figures each, I don't know what to do.
just do huge monthly packages so your wife won't be as suspicious
also your wife is right. you don't need to be ordering more than 5 figs a month ever really. ESPECIALLY if you ran out of room
Why is this scale never posted here? and why so few people here have her considering that there are a lot of Fate/Type moon fans?
She's one of my favorites and has a beautiful sculpt. Just don't plan on leaving her hat on unless you are willing to use something sticky to hold it there. As for leaning, as long as you use the provided clear stand with it then it'll be fine. I've had mine since release and she isn't leaning over anymore than pictures.
Awesome, thanks. I've been wanting to buy her but the leaning issue I've heard of made me a bit wary about getting her. If the hat doesn't stay on it looks like it would make a good decoration set next to her stand either way.
Nendos or Cu-poches of Nagato, Mutsu, Tenryu and Tatsuta
>someone posts here trying to sell some figs
>make account on mfc
>no answer after 3 weeks
im hanging myself
>tfw didn't get the Amico in shorts one
>tfw can't find my Amico in sweater vest and glasses one
Should I panic?
I'm more interested in the Mutsu in the back
Managed to actually catch the mailman today.
WuG-chan a cute.
Dammit, I'm really tempted to get this super cute Saori scale. The only thing that's stopping me is that it's a non-BQ figure made by
I like my dakis.
I got my late Dec haul from Amico and got a new card (sorry for my shitty phone pic)
I still missing a couple of card from this last year, and I have some older cards for trade, I will check my stuff and post it later
Here is the updated image.
>get a wageslave job only so I can buy weebshit
>order a dollfie
>tracking the thing each and everyday
>it finally says order delivered
>check my mailbox
>go to post office
>tfw I'm eventually told it was fucking stolen by some mail worker at some point of the delivery process
And there goes five months worth of savings.
Why? Why why why why why?
I fucking hate living in a third world country.
Weebshit is the only escapism that makes this life seem worth it.
Going to really kill myself t.bh if this happens just one more time.
Can't you claim on insurance or did you really order something that expensive without postage insurance?
There was insurance but they said insurance doesnt cover that because it was robbed and it's not their fault because "its something beyond their reach" like a natural disaster. this is all like asking a known thioef to deliver you something, not getting it and then when you ask a different member of the thief's gang if he robbed your delivery, he says he didn't. I can't really use any other service since the mail service here is state run and you know that third world countries are famous for their extremely honest bureaucracies.
They are supposed to reimburse you if the package was stolen though. Call their customer service instead of your local post office and tell them your situation.
