Do any of y'all that live with family display lewd figures? How do they react? I'm SUPER tempted to get this sonico, and it's not actually very lewd but the rest of my collection is really innocent (yotsuba, POP Akazukin kind of stuff). The price is right and I love the colors, but I'm just nervous about my parents' reactions.
Mine don't care, or at least don't mention them. And I have this among some lesser lewd ones.
Peoples always say Nitro+ hate gaijins, yet they have a global store that ships everywhere. How does that compute?
I'm literally in the same situation as you, with the same figure in mind too, so I know that feeling. Still, though, in the end it shouldn't really matter cause it's not like you're bringing in drugs or anything.
And there! Apologies for the shoddy lighting.
Goddamn Tony releasing so many new slutterflies now.
I love her kimono-inspired leotard outfit though.
Native really fucked this up, I was expecting a cute dick to go with the cute boipussi, but the quality looks terrible, same with the ugly face it got
Money. Either international shipping hassles, multilingual support and other logistics aren't worth it vs. the profit gained or there aren't enough filthy gaijin yen to be made to make them forget their hate of foreigners. It's also possible enough people use forwarders/proxies for them to not care regardless.
when is someone gonna start making scale MAGA hats for anime figures?
I'm 18 so it's still
sort ofsocially acceptable to be in my parent's place, and I just wanted a second opinion before I bought my first semi-lewd fig
You're right, they probably won't care, I have a giant Sorayama pinup in my room that my mom likes.
They didn't care when I came out either, they're pretty open-minded now that I think about it.Thanks anon, you've actually helped me. I'm gonna get it
do you mean the largest figure with breasts or the figure with the largest breasts? because pic related is both
I'm also the same Lumfag from last night; I decided on the tiger statue and bought it for 9K ($78 USD) on Mandarake. I'm still on the fence about the other fig, but all in due time.
I didn't see it until I looked closer. Fixed it.
I've got a Space Police Sonico figure that might qualify for "biggest breasts" in my current collection.
Ooh, the wings look really pretty. I might think about getting this.
I guess it's actually official now. Unless gsc mamitan is clueless
Only one I have. Kyoukaisen girls are probably the only large breasted figures I'd own.
GSC's Mami. All the others save for 2 abyssals are unintentionally flat chested.
I do have a couple of girls in my wishlist that may have bigger ones, but I didn't check official data.
yeah the Bikini one has huge breasts, I forgot to add her to my MFC owned list.
The largest I have proportionally is the Bikini Warriors Dark Elf. She looks fine, but I actually think she'd look better with less volume despite my love of breasts. No, I don't want need anything bigger as they'd start looking silly rather than hot.
Left one, and its the largest I'd like to get, she's ridiculous enough.
Her hips are bigger than her boobs, but I don't have many big breasted figs
got my figure today, i love it it looks pretty good on my speaker
Now I'm tempted to order something to get some scarves. But I've already spent a lot this month.
Opinions on this for 2500 yen? I doubt she will get a proper figure from one of the big manufacturers.
>position it by some tall books so it can't be seen from the doorway
>mom inevitably walks in
>"So who's that?"
>"J-just some girl from some anime."
>"That's pretty cool I guess. How much did it cost you?"
There will be Walkure's live concert in 1 week. Chances are slim, but maybe they will announce a movie there. And they have mobage planned for spring. And then I'm sure Victor Entertainment will try to make as much music as possible. So even though Freyja is not popular now, she still has a change to gain popularity with time. And then few years later they will decide to make a movie. And then another few years later they will make a proper figurine. You just need to wait and believe.
>get my very first nendo in the mail
>some of the assembly holes are tight, too lazy to break out the blowdryer
>try my hardest to just j-jam it in regardless
>apply too much pressure and the entire body slips damaging an accent on her foot
I'm fucking retarded, I can't even properly assemble a nendoroid. Miraculously there was no paint transfer though, but a tiny portion of her shoe broke off which I can't find anywhere around my room.
Maybe in the future, but right now these are part of their new winter campaign. Where when you buy certain nendos or figmas from their partner shops you will get 2 scarves picked randomly from 6 colors.
Weird isn't the first thing that comes to mind, but I guess it's to help sell products that aren't selling too well.
There are 19 items on ami that qualify.
I want kashima, so that's a plus. I'm kind of indifferent about marth and link, but at those prices I might consider it.
And TOM has a greater selection if you want to pay their higher prices.
Ha ha yea, even the hulk needs to stay warm.
She's great, especially if you're a hips/ass guy. I got her for 2500 yen off manda, so she'll pop up there sometimes. Only downside is the crappy base
Real Drive had some delicious character design.
Why don't they sell their games elsewhere then?
I don't see how selling their games outside japan would put their artistic integrity at risk. That doesn't make any sense.
I just recently bought a keychain from goodsrepublic.com, I think it's kind of a new site since I had never heard of it until recently. I got the keychain there for 11 bucks with free shipping, before that I couldn't find the keychain anywhere for less than 60. But it looks like they have a ton of obscure items
This is the biggest busted figure I have and it's rather small for a fig. Not a fan of cowtits.
actually looking through the site a little more it looks like a lot of their stuff is overpriced as shit just like their partner store otakurepublic, so I guess I just got lucky with the item I bought. Sorry!
I'm a caricature artist, why?
Why are there no forwarders that offer DHL? It's almost half the price of EMS for the same speed.
oh yeah, I guess that post did come off as shilling for their site, but trust me, now that I've actually looked through their goods past the one thing I bought I don't think I could recommend it.
Delayed to 05/2017, Orchid Seed son of a bitch, I will swear at you.
What differences have been spotted in the new Kat compared to the old exclusive? Something seems off about this one compared to the old one.
Only have one, and will only be one unless someone good picks up her Cadenza outfit.
I never knew I needed a pony tail figure until I started Gravity Rush 2.
>manufacturer is Pulchra
I'm just staying loyal and only collecting the ones of my shipfu.
I'm fortunate that Amakuni is releasing a scale of her soon as well.
My exact sentiments. Until someone makes pic related ill stick with my standard kongou
should i buy this? how reliable is max factory?
Anybody here have any experience with using BiJ (biginjapan) which is listed in the guide to use as a middle man?
I'm trying to purchase a very longed for and rare item on surugaya and i'm fucking nervous as shit about buying anything other than amazon and ebay which actually ships to Sweden.
If you do, how did it go between you and BiJ? And how was the service? Costly? Smooth?
Can anyone tell me what character this is? It says yujin on the bottom. I thought it might be Asuka, but that didn't seem quite right...
Just use an automated/UI based proxy like Zenmarket or FromJapan. I use Zenmarket all the time since their fee is 300yen per item.
I've heard of people complain about how BiJ can take a long time so I wouldn't bother with them.
It's very possible...It was a /ss/ gift so I shouldn't be complaining but...
>also got a Len figure that was previously glued to a stand but got broken off
>didn't even get the stand
Speaking of /ss/, are the threads done being made now?
>talked to my santa in the threads
>still got grinched
I emailed Santa Loli about it but I never heard anything back. It would've been nice to know they at least got blacklisted or something, I feel scammed.
Are you sure? I thought the Selvaria/Juliana was undressable, despite not showing them nude.

Do non-bootlegs of this pillow even exist anymore? I had a link saved for when I finally caved and wanted to buy it, and now that I've caved I cant find the link.
Yeah i think i'm going with FromJapan, altough they don't have that pre-calculated cost before purchase like ZenMarket.
>mfw item stock: 1
>actually have to wait for the dosh to come into my account
I can bully whoever I want, I can even replace her if she isn't good enough at her job.
koineko uses a truly criminal amount of packing paper
Quit your meaningless squabble and post good figures.
Overdesign doesn't necessarily mean bad, just like saying a show is overrated doesn't mean it's shit.
I was hoping you'd actually post a figure to at least keep the topic on topic, but it looks like you're just here to shit up the thread.
>Konata is Shimakaze
>Miyuki is Fubuki
>Kagami is Kaga
I don't recognize who is Tsukasa, but I guess anon on >>152483130 is correct and she is cosplaying Goya
"overdesigned" is a useless word used by lazy people who can't actually explain what it is they don't like about something. It's ok if you don't like some aspects of the figure like "she has too many accessories" or "her outfit is kind of mismatched and it doesn't appeal to me" Even using simple words that actually have concrete meaning is more useful than throwing out the nebulous "overdesigned"
Oh nice, a Happoubi artbook is going to be released in a month.
Every single aspect of the figure has too many things oresent and distracts from her as a character.
You can't see her being a girl. You see all this stupid frilly shit and ribbons and a giant mess of clashing colors.
This is still unreleased yet right? Apparently bootlegs are already out
Anyone collect the Yamato girls line? It irritates me how this one, featuring a really minor character, is the most expensive one, purely because she's hard to get and I stupidly skipped out on her during a shop visit. Granted, the figures all have QC issues, but they're damn good to own if you can get them for cheap.
Nah, that's nico. She was even sitting on a giftbox in the original art.
Not sure what you mean, looks the exact same as the proto , overall wonderful.
I didn't even buy her, so there's nothing to control. Just saying she looks mighty fine.
Good details, good sculpt, good paint, no real difference with the proto, that's the definition of mighty fine scale for me.
Takao? She's still far, expected for July, msot likely will be delayed a bit.
Not for another... six months? Staggering your releases some is a good idea, but geeze.
IDK the color tones looks different for me, for that money I rather get PH instead she's guaranteed to be insanely amazing.
You cant be that dense, really. Stock pictures usually jank up the saturation and vibrance, that ssomething you can do easily in lightroom and not actually because of the figure.
Don't even know what you are talking about, Takao has many memorable doujins
Are you saying that the quality of those boats is the same of BH?
I own BH and yes, I can say the quality is on par and even superior in some regards. The assembly is way easier and the parts are not as flimsy for one, the hair strands are generally more defined and the tips are sharper which means better molding/details as well.
Alter and MF are not far behind each other
Got Alter's BH a while ago, and Picked up Atago this morning. Actually the hair on Atago is more detailed, MF is also using that velvet-like paint on the figures skin as well.
So yeah, they are at least on par , if not Atago is sightly better.
Never expected new Rolling Girls merchandise to ever pop up, even if it is just some canvases. They are finally releasing a Linda Linda cover too
can't say i'm surprised at your autism. you're focusing on your simplified perception of a character and don't realize that the context of the media and the market is based on excess. what you call overdesign is your inability to appreciate this.
Yeah, something's making me feel that the faces are better on the old one, if they aren't actually the same. I also noticed more poofy shorts on her outfit in the new one. Not sure if the butt is also bigger. Disregarding butt size, can't decide if I'm missing out on the tradeoff with less thigh.
My husband and I have this on preorder (which ships Jan 30th, so stoked). We live in his in-laws basement suite because housing prices where we live are actually insane .
Anyways we arent really sure how we're going to display it yet because I'm sure they would find it offensive, they are very religious. Hilariously the sexual theme will be less offensive we think than the fact that it is a subbubus. They hate everything like DnD, witchcraft, demons, and shit like that lol
I got my Mike last week. She is cute.
She was my first Pure Neemo too, although I have the rest of the crew on order. I need to get some pretty clothes for her now.
thats actually motion blur.
and grainy is a word that is applied to film. the word you are looking for is noisy, as in digital noise. Noise is caused by iso sensitivity and longer shutter speeds.
the image is shit because there isnt enough light, the camera used a slow shutter speed and boosted the iso to try to compensate for this. the result is a shit image.
I've had them check and purchase the item under 2 hours before and other times not until the next day. They purchase between 9 am to 6 pm Japanese Standard Time so if you didn't get through the window, probably the next day. I have missed a rare tapestry before so I would get into using a forwarder if you're afraid.
I ordered pic related with ZenMarket for the first time and it took less than five minutes, was around midnight in Japan.
>2 minutes over their business hours when im done with money problems
huh, i thought they only did stuff during their business hours.
My parents don't mind, although I don't have very lewd figures, they liked my Charlotte Dunois bunny suit figure and wanted to look at it
Just got this today 28.99 gbp with 8gbp shipping from Japan. Do you think this was a decent buy?
looks pretty good and detailed for such a price
damn dude, thats pretty crazy. most i got for that price is my bootleg asuka
i got it from a seller on ebay called bewith2006
shes from japan and has really cheap prices on a lot of her stuff, some of it isnt so great but shes also got some good stuff aswell
i actually bought a rei fig from her, 8,99 gbp but like 10gbp for shipping
I have all of the other sorceress figures except for the A+ one and will be getting the Orchid Seed one when it releases
if evershould I just get this one too?
The only boats I would consider getting scales of are Amatsukaze, Hamakaze and Kaga. Only two of those actually have scales (Kaga's FunnyKnight scale is too dough-faced) and of those I'd only trust the Amakuni one to look half-decent. Have other priorities at the moment but I plan to get her by the end of the year.
There's also the Wo scale I really like because without all the extra shit on her she looks like Amane Suzuha but at that point I'd rather just buy a Suzuha scale.
I generally avoid lewd figs but those skindentations are super tempting. Will have to look into getting her after these next couple months of wallet rape (vidya mostly), assuming Alter doesn't get delayed again.
>Last resort. Ask buyf/a/gs if you’re unsure. Typically if the seller isn’t from China or somewhere similar, it’s safe. Be sure to stick with vendors that are “fulfilled by Amazon”.
Do amazon fullfillment centers have any idea if something is counterfeit or not? I imagine they would just see a anime doll and think "close enough" and accept it.
I also ordered Tatsuta on sale while waiting for Zuihou.
Took me long enough to find it.
>Do amazon fullfillment centers have any idea if something is counterfeit or not?
Speaking from experience, Amazon is more or less of a crapshoot, especially if you're buying anything "used and new". I usually just check the sellers and see if there's any that have positive reviews. I've never really had a bad figure/package sent to me by any of said sellers, given that I've got my first figure from Amazon.
maybe it's just the camera.
Maybe, the base sure looks like crap though,
Btw is this force cast off or not?
That can be pushed further with just vibrance settings .
She doesn't look that bad, at least the colors are fine.
That s just an image edit though, its not how she looked before/after but rather how someone edited her.
This is the original proto pic, pretty much the exact same as the final product here >>152492562
If you were not a retard you could have checked the source of the image, figured it out it was MFC and its not even tagged as a official photo but rather as "various" which usually goes for shitty edits.
