This base is pretty cool. Would be nice if it were actually made of metal or made by a company that can do finer detailing than Koto.
Looks like they hooked me on a pre-order now.
You can order a dakimakura of Maki from Love Live drawn by Oyari. I don't believe that you can ship internationally with Booth so use a proxy service.
Search her name in MFC to see if any info on a release date has been added.. You'll find it easier than I can since I don't know her.
I think that they should try making 1/1 statues that are naked and dress them with real clothes.
I like how her underpants match her scarf thing.
I don't think Ques Q did a good job with the Kawakami Mai. Hopefully Aquamarine can trump them.
Are there fuck dolls with anime style eyes? I think the ones that I've seen are too uncannily realistic.
It has been a few days since but one of my favorite figure photo bloggers finished uploading his Wonfes pictures and did a little summary of his day and detailed the spec's of his photography equipment. At the bottom there are links sending you to each manufacturer.
Tamayorihime with a mammoth price tag of ¥19,259. She is well worth it. It's a shame that open mouthed smiles tend to look awful.
As far as I'm aware, yes. They usually pop up later in preowned sections but have a nasty habit of shooting up in price.
>Preperation in progress
>1st of March
Damn, I didn't believe the rumours since the first time I bought from NY they delivered swimmingly.
I know it hasn't been that long but usually they at least ship by now.
what we payed or the list price? amiami was having clearance apparently so even though it's usually 13k I got macaron sonico for 7.7k
I just preordered a freyja wion 1/4 figure which costs 17k
I wonder if you'll be able to roll this. I don't like the pose Max Factory went with and I'm not sure if Ques Q will be able to make this Hotaru turn out well so I settled with the nendoroid but she doesn't come with much.
The cone-stand thing that is holding ro-500 up looks peculiar. Curious to see what it looks like in the finished product.
>finally have a month with just a single preorder
>think it's a good chance to save for future stuff
>spend 40k nippon dollars on older stuff
How do I stop this habit of buying expensive shit when it's 4am and I'm bored?
I work at home senpai. It makes it even worse.
Already did all of that. Got some nice LEDs on my display, been playing Gravity Rush 2 on and off during the day on my PS4, but I still like to order stuff occasionally, because It's kinda fun waiting for deliveries.
I barely buy anything from these threads though. Mostly just like to lurk and see cool stuff, but I usually stay up to date with releases from store's Twitter pages, and keep checking FigInStock for used restocks on AmiAmi.
Find cheaper stuff to buy. There is a wide variety of unlicensed anime merchandise from chink sites such as taobao and aliexpress. Acrlyic stands, cushions and desk mats are nice but can add up quickly.
I do order a bunch of stuff like that too. Don't really like most unofficial things, but I do have custom desk mats and stuff.
Not right now, though I worry about the future. Still, good point. Kinda running out of space to display stuff anyway.
Belphegor. This one is made by Orchid Seed.
I really like her tails and horns.
Only because of after market prices and the fact that only a few of them were produced with the special base.
She has a lot of detailed creases on her back and I think that is arousing.
A forwarder should work fine unless the store has had problems in the past with the forwarder's address. I personally would use a proxy service so as to not have to struggle through registering an account on Hobby Japan. Try and find one that won't charge more than 500yen for the whole process.
I am a newer buyfag so this is the most expensive thing I purchased.
Did a lot of contemplating. Price was crazy but I really wanted it.
Looking back now I did the right choice. The original one without the metallic base now goes 35-45k yen when it was around 20-25k yen back then.
The wonfes one is definitely more expensive but I personally found the golden guns to be too tacky.
Don't care about kancolle either but this is one of the top nendos I've ever laid my eyes on. Had to preorder this bitch.
There is a huge selection of Proxy services. Most of them will have outdated interfaces, poor communication, or non-competitive pricing.
Zenmarket is pretty good. 300 yen per item which is good if you are only getting a single expensive item. They are able to handle preorders such as the Amakuni exclusives on Hobby Japan. They are able to undervalue but charge you a small % insurance fee for doing so.
But if you've done forwarding before then feel free to go with that. I actually haven't tried to register an account on Hobby Japan so it may be easier than I assume.
Alternatively Big in Japan and Nippon Yassan order some of these exclusives for relisting on their site and might put her up. Their price will be higher than msrp since you are effectively using them as a proxy.
These two cost me about $350? Maybe 400.
Without shipping I think, it was a few years ago now.
The game isn't worth getting into unless you want an outlet for autistic urges to manage a lot of characters. Too much grinding so that you can be strong enough to grind better in the future.
I'm really grateful that Bell Fine has the generosity to make us all the girls from KonoSuba
Only checking Mandy at the moment
Damaged one is 45k
I bought the 18k version that's listed as sold out back when the usd was only worth .75~ yen.
Those days prices were crazy as fuck if you wanted something expensive, them good old days.
>Slightly iced nipples
you know fuck it, those boat geta and kickass bow are worth the shame of being a secondary, I'm gonna PO her, find a burgerboat nendo,
and give the game another shot
>commmute at 6, class at 7
>waiting for GSC support to reply to my proof of purchase and hoping its enough
>ignoring all midterms
this is fine
There are some, but you are better off asking on the /jp/ thread.
Is this a good idea?
According to MFC, this is the best GL figure
Rather small, though...
Best is subjective but I think Riobot owns that.
Does anyone have that photo of this really comfy collection that gets posted frequently? I believe it either has black or brown furniture and wood with glass cabinets and some sort of lounge chair. It's just a really comfy looking place. I tried looking for it on google, but I can't find anything close to it at all.
Never watched Ikkitousen, but jesus christ my dick
tfw played the game since the release and still haven't bought a single merch
Well if you really mean that, Anon.
New figure when?
Same. I vowed (no not wedding vow, yikes) to not buy a boat until I got my Yuubari.
Vertex was working on something but then they became "melon" crazy. I guess her melons aren't big enough for them, sadly. Phat's Akitsumaru tempted me and still does, I might make an exception for her since it's so small and she's unlikely to get anything else for a long, long while.
At least there's the surprisingly nice Taito prize, but it has no ship parts.
Good taste friend, maybe I'll get the FK Hayasui as my first boat.
This is not fine. Good grades, good job, more Gundam.
Were it so easy.
I'm really happy I waited on purchasing pic related since I get to buy it vastly cheaper than anywhere else thanks to saved up points. Love how it references the RX-78.
What are you getting from GSC anon?
She's a fine choice and character as far as I'm concerned. It was rough sailing for this figure for a while, so I'm glad they got her out.
I'm a little lost on what the FK is for though.
Ah, terrible misfortune that was. Have they said anything as yet?
I hope Gwendolyn comes okay, I can't resist her..
They asked for a proof of purchase and where I bought it from to confirm I'm not just trying to refurbish a secondhand fig, gave them a screen of the order confirmation email and the invoice that japs glue to all the boxes, then I guess work was out so I need to wait till tomorrow in japan
seems promising overall
and what gwen, odin sphere?
They're ALL already drafted, with Michael having a prototype at that (may even come with parts options given her pose)
Feast your eyes, mortal: http://myfigurecollection.net/encyclopedia/122383_the_seven_heavenly_virtues
That sounds like enough proof. I used the invoice method just the other day.
Yes, Odin Sphere Gwendolyn. PS2 was my first system and I wonder how I missed that game. I still haven't experienced it's story, I will by time she arrives.
Them licensing fees though
Technically, the pre-order of GSC's 15th anniversary Sakura with the base. If you're only counting figures I already own, then either GSC Madokami or the Aniplex+ Akuhomu. I don't quite remember which cost more, but they were each around 17k before shipping.
36k yen. No regrets, she was my grail.
I don't know much about figures, so I'm not particularly picky about them. As long as she doesn't have an ugly face like those two Galko figures I would still be happy to get her.
Make sure to make a display that spells out HOTARU with this figure as the O. Be creative with the other letters if you wish.
It'd be cool if it was supposed to be like the water following her up out of the ocean, or if they made it more like that for the final version.
I actually really want a
figmaat least, especially since it's the only avenue left as long as she stays under GSC/MXF.
Colossal Titan would have the best upskirt view as they flew in the heavens.
So I dont want to be that customer so i don't want to email GSC yet but did anyone else get the list for what will be shipping out in March? Cause i haven't recieved anything. Does anyone know if the nendo T-34/84 got delayed or something?
Not a boatfag but got her because i liked her a lot.
Didn't realized that the PO was up. Is someone getting her?
...Even the lady, should it please...
T-thanks. She's the most outstanding scale in my collection.
You're paying for the best of the best. What did you expect?
Literally can't find quality better.
Holy shit fuck me in the ass.
Do people actually spend that type of money on figures.
You've got Chewie too, nice!
Are you going to get her bunny version?
If you're a big fan of the series then ya that quality is outstanding. I'd still prefer a fully articulated Eva but that would be a great centerpiece.
Would probably buy best girl or Geralt if given the chance.
Amazing catch, anon.
Of course, she's my waifu of 4 years. Her birthday is in a few days, I can't wait.
Does anyone know if her clothes can be cast-off?
Thanks anon. I actually got both of the 1/4 scales as a packaged set. Cost about 120k overall, shipping hit me hard since they come in really nice collector's boxes. Totally worth it though.
As opposed to blowing their money on "food" outside of main meals constantly, partying, drugs, shoes they wear once/buy for the sake of having, etc. Yeah. It's a different kind of pleasure, though, just as volatile if you let it be.
But all the money in the world won't bring their happy family back together again
So I got some vidya art in. Nice books although taking a photo of the Eorzea book is a pain due to being super shiny.
A fully articulated Eva would be nice too, but I personally prefer a statue because I likely wouldn't be bothered to pose it that often. It's really nice that the Prime 1 statue comes with switchable parts for heads and weapons though.
Nice, is the Bloodborne one any good? Was thinking of getting it.
Worth for 20$? No shipping or anything, just a local store selling it. It would be my first figure, and I'm not able to afford shipping costs, so buying old stuff on stores is kind of my only option.
Of course they do.
Hopefully Cidney turns out okay.
That is a very nice option. I'd say pull the trigger if you haven't because it's one of a kind.
>calculated price of my buyfaggotry from around december to next january
>only comes to around 1.4k (burger)
on one hand I feel kind of bad that THAT much cash is now invested in cute figs that decorate my room, on the other hand that's honestly not much in the grand scheme of things, especially spread out over a year+
The thing is pretty fuckin big.
In a shop in Akiba.
You're telling me. Finding somewhere for it is going to be a challenge.
Hasn't been sent for me to pay yet but 22k for a bleach Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck. It's a gorgeous figure and I can't wait until I see her in person
shipping and tax brought her up close to 300 €.
...later she dropped in price...
Why is there no discount on amiami for Reika sword version? 17k. Union Creative. I don't know much about them. Are they worth it?
I'm iffy with Art of War.
All of their Berserk figures are very expensive with only a small percent actually being of a quality similar to this company figures >>154339318 and the rest not having quality reflecting their price.
That said I do own this one and don't regret paying $300~ for it.
Is there a known difference between shipping rates of manda and ami? The fig I want is available at the same price on both of them, I don't want to be raped by shipping in vain.
It's a big fig, so it's logical to go with EMS because SAL might even be more expensive in such cases, right?
>haven't played FF since 6, easily over a decade ago
>immediately get this reference
Prime 1 is also doing a Guts figure if you want to go that route. I'm looking forward to seeing their Zodd and Griffith.
Wouldn't be surprised if someone bought one.
This shipping was 4.5k with EMS sal was unavailable and I'm not sure how much DHL would of been
You have to be diehard fan for this shit.
I want to ask here before getting it. According to her mfc page, she doesn't have any bootlegs or anything, but I'm still kinda afraid; here are some closer shots.
Ignore the price tags. Sorry for bothering.
The angle of the pics makes her face look weird, that's why I've been doubting. Maybe it's because the figure itself was made some years ago, and the comppany doesn't seem so famous.
I specially wanted to get it because of the face. I think it portrays the original anime design well and I like it a lot. I like the overall swimsuit design. Looks very appealing and sexy. Her ass is great. Freyja is one of my most favorite character and this is possibly the best figure for her and I'm also a footfag and the feet looks great. Luckily I'm not too picky.
>bought this used
>seller described the stand as scratched due to time
>he didn't know there was a protector layer on it
kök'd a little
Its not out yet but the stars bless card captor sakura figure will by my most expensive. Id say it counts because i dont care if i have to sell a kidney. I will have that one.
Does the figure you want even have a bootleg? Hard to sell something that doesn't exist. I buy from eBay every few weeks and it's always fine. I just read the description thoroughly and I'm never surprised
Actually, they are from a little job I did, and I've been saving for no reason. Since ordering figures from here is expensive as fuck, the only ones I can get for a reasonable price are 2 or 3 year old figures. Rewrite was my first VN and Kotori is my favoriee girl from it, so that's a big reason to buy her. I still doubting becuase of her face shown on the photos.
Eh, I'd prefer the Hot Toys one since it sets a much better scene and can be posed.
That or Kotobukiya's version when it comes to a statue that's still good and far, far less.
I understand the appeal of size, especially life-size in a fine display, but it's hard to top a character's most iconic scene:
>Why not call Michael by her namesake virtue Humility
It is an odd thing, but perhaps they're all set to have other names?
Haven't looked much into the anime for the Sins, but I'd wager they'll have human names for everyday life when their title isn't important. I guess since Humility/Michael is the first up they're revealing more about her character?
Even then Michael is an odd choice since it's a girl, but I don't mind.
Although it is one of my names, hmm
It has bootlegs. Seen ton of them on aliexpress.
How does it looks like?
I want them to make another Goukin and work with this artist to make it. Wo-class would be cool too, as much attention as she already gets.
While it's pretty obvious to most of us, you have to start somewhere...
>Painted GK auction went up from 15k to 60k while I was at work.
>Passed over one that was 9k over the winter.
Someone end my suffering.
Also SOON. I hope they come out concurrently or close to it, not shipping either one immediately is going to be tough.
It's a shame that Amie got their hands on some of Alter's boy scales, the quality is noticeably worse than with their usual ones.
Especially with Ensemble Stars, those designs are god tier so it would've been nice to get the usual Alter quality instead.
fucking june be here already.
Fuck preordering though. Never going to do it again.
Strongly considering getting out of the preorder game with a few exceptions. We'll see how badly/if I get burned by a few things I'm keeping my eye on.
>Haven't looked much into the anime for the Sins, but I'd wager they'll have human names for everyday life when their title isn't important. I guess since Humility/Michael is the first up they're revealing more about her character?
Yeah, I was wondering this too
I guess the Michael name is based upon the Archangel Michael, who is the avatar or incarnation of Humility or something like that, I guess?
same artist as pic related?
mustang was one of my favorites
65k in preorders now til January plus 5-6 figures not yet offered, that's reasonable enough that I can work on some previously released stuff every month. Some of the not yet released stuff will still be in limbo come wonfes
there are plenty of 18+ LNs
and this one has sex and impregnation
never read a translated LN, but the Japanese writing system can condense a lot of information in small amounts of characters so they probably end up about the same size
Convince me not to buy this guys. It doesn't matter that I haven't fapped since this morning because I regret missing out on the first release.
Still, I HATE cheerleader outfits, but I LOVE tan-lines and huge areola. Is there no hope?
Yeah, I haven't heard of that issue cropping up in a while. I did a lot of research considering I've never bought from them before (and the Clones are all gone, cheap on ebay though)
Hmm, I don't know about her being that person in particular, but it is a possibility.
I meant page count, but after looking on amazon jp and comparing the page count to my translated danmachi LNs, it he jap ones have quite a lot more pages.380 pages in the english version and 496 in japanese.
It's honestly impressive, Japanese is hard to learn (compared to english), has like 3 different alphabets and thousands of unique characters and it is still incredibly inefficient and takes more space than English.
That's like saying you'd think all the hentai would make porn manga unnecessary. One is not a direct replacement for the other and different people will prefer different things at different times.
the fact that erotic novels still have their paying audience is proving otherwise.
IT's not my cup of tea either but remember, that for every fetish you can possibly can think of, you'll find somewhere someone who is into it.
You couldn't be more right. There really is no hope after all. It's regrettable that I've regressed towards these primal urges.
I saw, but I have a weak spot for tan-lines. I can't tell what they have changed from 1.0 to 1.1 though - can you?
Wanted to get Alter Umi too, but POs closed before I was solid on it.
Depends how they feel that day, this image got a man dragged to court, see here;
The people at the Canadian border can be pretty uptight, went on vacation with my friend's family to the US and getting in was piss easy, however getting back in to canada was harder.
I doubt it's exclusive to this country, i'm sure you could find cases of over zealous police or other officials pulling this kind of shit. If you check their website you can see a bunch of other cases from the US.
Our time will come though or rather it does happen but very rarely. How I see it, all it takes is one moody government official to take out their frustration on someone random with 2D instead of a case that involves drug/human trafficking.
And finally goodyjapan shipment came in. Toranoana doujins are here.
I don't know which is cheaper. Them or use a forwarder.
>I don't know which is cheaper. Them or use a forwarder.
I thought you couldn't use forwarders with Toranoana and goodyjapan is the cheapest proxy for Toranoana that I know of.
I agree. Rin is my favorite but I can't really justify buying the alter figure unless it gets re-released. I don't like a lot of her figures, but I'll eventually buy more of them.
Hot damn. I love this artist. Good shit. Will be sad when he inevitably stops.
>Eli is worst idol
>Nozomi has worst costume
Wew lad, that's some shit taste you've got there.
It's actually scanned in panda.
The GuP one is from Aerodog - 戦車道の裏道 -大学選抜チーム-
The Houshou one is from TUKIBUTO - 二度咲き椿
Because I don't have a credit card, and I don't plan on getting one. The site is basically certified by Paypal, and is widely used in my country, so there's no problem with that. What concerns me if I can use that to buy from Mandarake. Is the only thing stopping me from buying what I want in this exact moment.
Aliexpress for selection and easy international shipping. It is best to be aware of your favorite daki artists and where they sell their wares. Some will have their own booth store or have it on an obscure webshop. You could get official licensed dakimakura but those tend to be not as good in quality.
>compilation H-doujin I've wanted ever since it was announced went up on toranoana
>sold out before my proxy order went through
>organizer said they're not printing more
>no signs of it on any secondhand sites
And this was almost a week ago and I'm still really upset.
I got my Zenmarket order in. The touhou artwork books are by Yutapon ( https://twitter.com/yutapon19 ) and the KanColle one is by ( https://twitter.com/kotatsu358 )
The Yukine Chris stuff is from from Hobby Stock. They are making similar character merchandise for each Symphogear character to celebrate their birthdays.
I half-jokingly posted that the Amico figure was my grail and someone posted a link so I had to get it. She is tiny, of poor craftmanship, and very cute.
The rest of the KanColle items featuring Yamakaze, Shigure, and Yuudachi are bonus goods that were available at c91 when you purchased a Yamakaze dakimakura from ( https://twitter.com/paintmusume ) I got it off of YAJ! after a friend tracked it down for me.
Here is the mentioned Yamakaze daki. She has really nice toes.
And here is another dakimakura in the order featuring Alter Jeanne d'Arc Santa Lily
Shirabe birthday set is best birthday set, fight me.
I won't fight you. Please settle with holding my hand.
This one. I literally just pre-ordered it.
Cost me $1200.
a friendtried to buy something with the method I'm talking about and it didn't work, sadly. Thanks for the answers anyway.
I don't even know why I'm posting it.
Surely there must be a reason behind all this.
I think it is cute and I'm going to jingle her bells.
