Read the guide first before asking questions. buyfags.moe
I know the guide suggests ordering custom wall scrolls and using the two sites listed to find scans, but are there any other scan related sites you guys use? Having trouble finding some tapestry scans.
Worth every yen.
I hope it won't sell out before I get to it.
is this fig going to be cast-off able?, I mean since Q-six makes almost only lewd figurines.
Well even if that happens it will be much better than this abomination.
>Buy from Amiami for christmas presents
>o shit it mite not arrive in time
>Decide to use EMS for the first time since it's said to be fast
>96€ of taxes for a 172€ order
Customs are cancer.
A little more time you pay to read the guide and use forwarder or undervalue store save you a loooots money.
That was the first and last time I made the mistake.
You never learn from other's experience I guess.
I think it was normally 20€ flat + 21% of the product but they added random numbers to the price.
I don't think I still have the tax paper but it was laughable.
Deep down in your heart you know you're wrong
My book I just got charged on was from a forwarder, I checked what they were putting on the declaration even, just never expect border agents to be able to read or convert yens. If the package looks wide it must cost a fortune.
Are posters allowed? Picked this up a few months ago, very happy with it
Anyone know where one can purchase some A3-sized picture frames? I caved and bought some custom frames online but I'm curious if anyone has ever found them in USA.
Why does America have to be so fucking backward with our standard measurements?
>I think it was normally 20€ flat + 21% of the product but they added random numbers to the price.
Almost the same in my country. If you order through normal post it's 17% VAT (or zero if package value is under 75$), but if you get expedited shipping they add a flat rate for some fucking reason. EMS is about 35$ extra for packages over 75$. Fedex takes like 55$ or some other retarded amount. If you get something that's just over 75$ not including shipping, it can work out to near 100% tax.
That's why I always use SAL, and only use EMS if SAL is unavailable or if ordering a whole bunch of stuff so that the flat rate isn't as bad comparatively.
I don't know about the US but IKEA has some if you use the passepartout
a perfect frame without passepartout I do not know about
Which is why I find framing wallscrolls easier than posters
Got an email from the seller about my order for the last of a figure that was new and less than $490.
It was ~$250. It's original price in 2009 was ~$60. Wake me up can't wake up
Decided to make last minute adjustments
It was open for purchase the day I bought it. The day after it had the Orders closed status. A while later I got the payment email and the day after I paid I got the email about it being out of stock and that they're trying to order a new one
Doubt anyone knows about Haruki and Suzune here.
I fucked up and forgot to pre-order FAG Baselard.
Amiami closed the pre-order and cdjapan has no pre-orders.
Feels bad man.
I didn't realize Umi was so popular. She went back up for preorder on AmiAmi at 16k around 2 days ago and now they're all out. I hope that anon who wanted her went for it. I couldn't justify spending that much when Eli looks a lot better.
I wish idol boys looked as good in their uniforms as idol girls. There's only so far you can take a suit or sailor/military uniform before it looks absolutely ridiculous.
It's a shame that as a general rule men look best in minimalistic outfits.
Marie came in the mail today. I think she looks rather nice.
I would have gotten her early if Ami didn't stall for time to delay something and then give me the invoice.
I have yet to buy GSC's Madoka. I feel like buying both would be a waste. I never thought I'd have to choose between 2.
Why does Stronger have such a hard-on for jelly hair? It usually looks okay when used at the ends, but the amount of hair they try to make translucent just results in it looking awkward or straight up bad.
It's a shame, too. I was thinking of replacing my GSC Godoka and Stronger Homucifer set with these versions, but now I'm not so sure.
Where do you buy this things? i'm looking for something of LWA
I use HobbySearch mostly. Occasionally other sites including HLJ, BBTS, and Amimi. Mostly HobbySearch though.
Far as LWA goes, I recently pre-ordered a 5-pack of keychains from HobbySearch (Honestly not sure if it's just a random box of 5, or the full set of Akko, Lotte, Sucy, Diana and Shiny Chariot). Also pre-ordered all 9 Blu-rays off Amiami.
>i'm looking for something of LWA
You're a few months too early, check back in September.
>We are changing the currency conversion spread charged when we perform a currency conversion for you from charging an additional 2.5% over the exchange rate set by our bank to charging an additional 3.0% over the exchange rate set by our bank.
Was there anything to prompt this change by Paypal?
You fags want me to pick anything up for you?
>GSC is on the production committee
I will be forever mad that Senyuu never got a damn thing. Those designs were perfect for nendos, too.
I thought Homu was confirmed, just not sculpted yet.
Naturally, they're making this in figure form.
Well its the most obvious one besides Elon Musk being a jew fuck and wanting more of your money.
Though, by now everyone should be using your own bank's rates and just link the card directly in PP.
Also, the movie comes out the day before Wonfes. Think I should watch it workout subs?
I've had my card on there but for some reason due to authentication dickery it always defaults to Paypal shit. At least, the last time I actually looked at a card statement it did.
Somebody saved the image I made ages ago.
There was an aisle of that. Also, pic related.
She's a qt. I don't like Tracer but I would definitely buy a Mercy
or Meiif/when they make one. 76 is probably next though if they do more.
>not knowing that amiami has an ebay page
here you are
Looks nice to me except for the top hat. However that may not be the actual color scheme.
But it is
The figure is nice but what the heck they were thinking by using that cheap plastic in the bra and garterbelt?, well at least it seems that it will be castoff-able.
I like her face, but I hate the way they did the lingerie.
Not sure if I should order her or not(I mean the 1/4)
>Do ships even last that long in the water?
"Dispatched from outward office of exchange" does not mean the plane/ship/whatever left with your package on board nor that it was loaded, it just means it was processed by the outwards customs officers for dispatch overseas, meaning it could be on a vehicle or just waiting in a warehouse for it's turn to be shipped.
Also, even though you can only see one single statues most packages actually go through a series of middle points and countries on their way to their destination.
http://news.amiami.jp/topics/2017/02/62301.html I hope we get more wall scrolls.
More often than not. Not getting hit would be considered extremely lucky, at least in my experience.
Of course, if you have or are willing to spare the extra possible $60 bucks just to get your shit faster than go for it.
I pre-ordered Luka because I like the kimono, the overall color choices, and the stand. I also don't have many sitting figures.
I just said I always go EMS.
Yeah, I get hit with customs charges more often than not, but I think that's an issue of pure weight, as they are expedited through the actual checks.
EMS is pricey, but I consider it worthwhile for the general piece of mind I get from it.
SAL almost always avoids customs. Of course, you have to suffer semi-long and potentially bullshit wait times, but for me, unless it's something I really want or it's forced EMS I usually don't mind the wait times.
Of course that doesn't mean I won't use EMS. I'll use it if something comes up that I really want right away and I don't want to wait weeks, but I'm usually too much of a goyim to shell out the extra cash on top of what I've already paid for.
Lady at the bookstore was saying a lot of Japanese. But hey, I'm buying books in Japanese in a Japanese book store, its fair to assume I speak the language.
I was excited when they announced this line because the original image was so nice, but I hate the way they've been doing the flowers and the longer hair so I've passed on all of them so far. Plus the faces all seem flat, but I'm not sure if that's just the lighting in the pictures.
Shirabe is up.
every time I'm like "i can wait I'm not a big baby" and then inevitably around the 3 week mark I'm a giant child and cannot wait
I've got books coming and it's been a month and I'm hitting that wall where I never want to order from SAL again (but I will)
Buying the Tracer Nendoroid from Blizzard is more expensive than buying it from Amiami even with shipping. Why?
dolls are adorable
Assuming 1090 yen for RSAL to the US and an exchange rate of 1:115 when she's released, Blizzard's price is only $6.51 more. I don't know if Blizzard's store has free shipping, but unless it's crazy expensive then it's not a terribly bad alternative for people who don't want to deal with international shipping, or who just don't know about Japanese stores.
I hate their faces. While they seem slimmer than nendos at first, the cheeks and mouth makes them look much fatter. I wanted to get Labrys and Aigis Parforms but in every non-pormotional pic their faces looked just terrible. That Gwen does look pretty great and the base is interesting so I might bite the bullet this time but I know I'll regret it.
Is there any chance at all that she bins? I'm asking because the only place that I've seen with stock of her are places like TOM which are overpriced and i'm hoping that i don't have to pay the markup for hesitating when she was originally announced.
You might get lucky and someone might cancel their pre-order so just hold out.
Otherwise probably not and you'll have wait for it to pop up on the used market and even then you'll probably have to pay markup.
Im a pretty new buyfag, so I dont know too much about caring for my figures I guess, but Ive noticed white paint is starting to oxidize blue across the board. Is there a way to prevent this, or even reverse it?
Leaf here, but could this also have something to do with the city you're in? When I was in a smaller city I never got hit with customs but ever since I moved to a bigger one I've been charged every time.
Saw this was coming out for a while, but I didn't expect it to be by Revolve
Looks like pink pantsu. They must be crazy high leg ones though.
I don't buy original figures, but she looks really nice. I'm tempted.
Whoever thought this was a good idea should be killed.
I'm still debating it since I actually like the Next form and it's probably that only figure it'll get. I'll wait until WonFes to see if anything better pops up before deciding.
Where did you pick it up from?
As much as I like this scale there are so many good figures from the -monogatari series
Which are the best (for any character), anyone here have more than Bat or Snail?
Pretty much anything GSC related is the best if a character has one.
The only Monogatari related figure I currently own is the Kotobukiya figure of Ougi since it's the only thing out there that she has. I love it but I could be biased since it's Ougi related. I am really on the fence for the GSC Nadeko since it looks so good but I am waiting until after WonFest before grabbing it.
GSC usually goes for that much or more so unless someone else chimes in, I think that's a pretty good price. The Nadeko one I want is 11,400 and I just remember I did pre-order the GSC Yotsugi DX figure as well for 12,950.
It's between that and 500 rounds of 5.45x39
Do I take the plunge and become /ak/?
Real. Look at the father's face when son finally musters up the courage to gingerly push him away. His face is defiant, enraged, that a son would ever even dare to raise a hand against his father.
Nug first. You can have enough plastic ass, but never enough weapons with which to protect their honor.
Also get some Little Armory matching weapons and one poseable figure to match.
Guys bought this for 10k anime bucks.
Did I get burnt?
It's the anime art book. It shows off a lot of little things we typically overlook in the anime, like the difference between YGGDRASIL currency from 2038 and New World currency.
Vertex is teasing a slutty elf.
Skytube opened up a new twitter account for their 'Premium' line of figures.
Fight me, dumboats!
I just can't wait for wonfes to see all the new
>Classic Skin Edition
>mfw they're gonna suck everyone dry for all the reskins
stuff that i don't need for prices that i can't afford
They aren't new but re-print I guess.
They're from Pin-point games/CGs and the artists are people like Takeda and bbsacon
I don't know about DHL, but when UPS is <$10 more expensive than EMS I usually pick it since its 2-3 days faster.
Also when I order tons of stuff and undervalue to a ridiculously low price since customs on my country seem to let UPS package pass unrevised 100% of the time if under tax threshold.
Well yeah if they were to be within that price range I wouldn't be complaining. From what I've gone through with them, the service is great and they arrive first thing in the morning. But when the price difference is what I pointed out or even like >>153531613 is just a question of how do they arrive at those prices...
What are the odds of finding this fig at around 5k yen in Tokyo when I visit? There are a couple on mandarake but they are in stores in other cities, is there anyway I can get them to ship it to another store or something so I can pick it up when I get there?
I use DHL for Amazon.jp which is fast and cheap. They even have a self-service box here.
But this Amiami item was around 5kg, not sure about size, yet to pick it up.
The "don't" accept cancellations, actually they do but its based on your purchases history and you can even get banned for being an indecisive fuck.
If you are prone to change your opinion or are shit at managing your money pick a different site.
Damn, that sucks. That's why I like Manda's SAHRA store. They really need to get their shit together. Not telling you the shipping costs and punishing you for it is the most anti-consumer thing of all, specially considering how difficult they are to predict, and can easily mean uninterest in the product.
Not really, you can easily tell an approximate of the shipping costs of in stock items, either check the dimensions and weight on sites like HS or even get direct quotes from other users in MFC. If you order and then cancel because of the shipping being too much you are a special kind of retard
They're one of the largest and usually cheapest stores online. They don't need to do shit.
Besides, you should be able to estimate the price of shipping based on size, weight, location and shipping method.
Dude, noice Overlord collection
I really need to get the Overlord nendos
Pleiades nendo petits never
Now that think about it, how frequent does Alphamax do reissues? I mean I want ot get the Shiranui scale, but I don't want to deal with scalper prices or bootlegs (this Mai scale have them)
I like these two a lot
I like the black one a lot
Does anyone have experience buying a figure from another countries version of Amazon and having it shipped to the US?
What did you do if they specified that they don't ship to the US?
Anyone buy anything from
KT JP Trading House, was it damaged/bootleg or in good condition?
So Winter Winfes is around the corner and the company decided to have special courses that day as well. At what time (Central Time) does the event stat? Depending on this I might have to bullshit my way out that day.
I saw a guy carry a cardboard cutout of some anime I didn't recognize out of the mall yesterday. Also, malls here go up and down from the ground level and nothing opens before 9 or 10 in the morning.
14 hours into the future from EST, so figure it out from there.
Starts at 10am and goes to 5pm. With only 7 hours, I won't be posting much until I'm back at the hotel.
If you're that worried you can get it from here:
But it would be be cheaper to import it
and go to prison
that is true but no need to be so mean about it
I do. It's weird that he was pretty popular then kind of just fell off. Never see any updates of his new stuff anymore or groups scanslating them. Kinda sad since he's one of the few artists i really like.
I want my nopan boat first
Hell yeah, I wouldn't mind Chikuma either.
The Takao one is coming out this year so any of these two will make all the ones I like have figures.
>I do. It's weird that he was pretty popular then kind of just fell off. Never see any updates of his new stuff anymore or groups scanslating them. Kinda sad since he's one of the few artists i really like.
I remember reading about it, but don't remember the details. Something about real porn manga goes under heavy restrictions and does not sell well. So a lot of artists have to tone down sex scenes, replace it with teasing only, tentacles, etc. Sex with humans is unappreciated.
That happened in his latest Parasite Doctor volume - it's mostly tentacles now compared to the previous volume.
Starts Sunday morning for Japan, it'll be Saturday for the rest of us.
I didn't think I liked Hikari that much, but her daki is too cute and sexy.
