Read the guide
I see, so I would be safe since the parcel box should fit the figures and nendos I'll be buying. I guess I'll just gamble and hope that the mailman isn't an asshole.
And to the other Anon who said to look in the guide: the info isn't there.
does anyone have the complete maiko set?
Turns out Amiami.co.jp do not like you purchasing from them through Tenso. I bought a figure through their Amazon.co.jp store front using my Tenso address and Amiami sent an email suggesting they normally cancel orders getting sent to forwarders but would let it slide this time.
Only got the figure through there because it wasn't available through Amiamis regular English site strangely enough. They implied that they had a lot of problems with cancellations when customers use this but other then that I can't really see why it would matter where the stuff goes, as long as the shit is paid for which is maybe why they let it slide this time and their complaint probably persons more to preorder items but I can't see that being the case too often...
Does anyone know where I can find this figure? I've looked on all the major sites and everything is either overpriced or not there. The only decently priced one I found was on amazon jp but it's used and the description is super vague, I'd rather not take the risk.
it was one of my impulse buys in a physical store and the quality isn't that high especially the faces, probably the lowest quality scale i own actually. should have ordered madokami and akumai homura instead.
here's madoka's neck with a caliper set to the width of homura's neck, not that big of a difference, sorry for photato phone pic, lighting conditions are not ideal.
Has anyone else ever backed a figure through Kickstarter? I'm going to back this one, but I wasn't sure how common it was.
Before the tsunami, they were big on trying to get the Air Force base out of Okinawa.
Some seem to not like the Osprey. They are only operated by the Marines, Air Force, and the JSDF.
Hiroshi Nagahama is such a cool dude. He got really exited when he saw the box of Ginko and kept making small chat, he spends around 10-15 minutes with every fan.
He gives two shits about the rules the convection sets, takes any character request and stays until everyone in the line gets one.
>not even good waifu like a-tan or shun-chan
>or good husbando like nodens or jog
>not the same scale as my Ika
>bunny Nyaruko is better
Why even bother?
Its across the street from their version of congress. I'm sure their lawmakers are assumed to be able to read moon. Protesters were pretty stoked about Americans taking in interest in their signs.
Anyone else here waiting for their Saitama?
This is the first figure I bought, so I don't know how much I fucked up, but if they ever make a Tatsumaki/Fubuki figure in clothes too from the same series, I'd buy it in an instant.
Yeah, I queued for 3 other autographs and they all had snuckup rules and were pretty cold during the signing. Nagahama was the complete opposite:
>Ohhh sugoi premium figua!
He kept thanking me for buying merchandise and signed it all.
This reminded me of an old webcomic a marine did of their time in Japan. Just looked it up and this is their last message, website seems to be down now:
>The cancer turned vicious in the past month and removed my ability to rebuild muscle. I am slowly deteriorating. Currently, I can’t stand up but can walk and go to the bathroom with nurse’s help. I will eventually lose all body function, so the doctors are trying to slow the downhill degradation. I am doing what I can while I can. I will fight this to my last breath! And continue to update the English episodes to my last breath! :)
>Thoughts, prayers, and positive energy welcome. Miracle stories and products not welcome. Thank you for your understanding! :)
I backed the Mythic Legions figures. They took a little over a year to arrive but they turned out pretty nice. More recently I backed 13 project's "Genocide Trooper". Hopefully it turns out as good as the prototype.
>still thingken of tidds
Not surprising, as not even Amazon itself likes to deal proxies. If you do and the package's marked as delivered, you're on your own from then on.
WTF, I love FAGs now!
wow what a bunch of fags
that has always been the case, case in point original sader figure
So guys, how fast is Goodyjapan at getting instant buys from Yahoo auctions? There is something I really want to get super fast since it has an instant buy option and I don't want to use buyee since it's expensive as fuck. How fast would Goodyjapan be able to get this if I notify them as of this moment?
New to buyfaggotry, consider buying Noriko and either of the Gunbusters.
Are those any good or should I buy something else?
> pet has been sick recently, so i've been in and out of the vet the last couple of months
> thought I had time to breath and recover some emergency money
> found a lump on her last night

Fucking hell man.
If you've been together for a decent amount of time why not. She probably already knows you're a turboweeab at that point anyway and won't change a thing.
>dating someone who is creeped out by your hobbies and will leave if you be yourself around them
Is this masochism? Suffering with a wrong person out of fear dying alone? What's the final game? Wasting your life trying to be liked only to die having someone to bury you but not living your life to the fullest?
Plastic butts are a piece of your puzzle. If you have all pieces but one puzzle is still incomplete.
Because underage girls can't have special training.
That's rough anon. I hope she gets better. If it's any consolation my dog got a back hernia and lost use of his legs, but he recovered with time. Now he runs faster than many others.
GSC has her listed for an actual release date, finally. Apparently she's out on the 24th.
No last-minute delay please
What's the point even in having a relationship if you can't share with your partner such basic thing like a hobby?
I never hide my hobbies from anyone: parents, friends, roommates etc. If they want to have a relationship with me they should know what kind of person I am.
Like the others said, depends what you have.
The whole "they should love you no matter what" thing is true and untrue at the same time. If you have some cute figures, it can be viewed as a mildly weird hobby. If you have figures of underage girls getting raped by tentacles, then people will view you as a perverted weirdo. It would be like if you displayed all your porno mags. Flexing your sexual taste and fetishes will always be kind of sad.
Attend all events, wonfest, m3, X series doujin event.
Enjoy all the food you can.
Nomihoudai with friends.
Get a jp gf, it's easy, you have 3 years to hone your skills (this is easier if you're going to a language academy, just attend all the events).
Go on a trip whenever you can and discover all the cities.
And the most important one is to not waste your time, you'll remember fondly those 3 years unless you're going for work and you fucked up, wageslave.
>avoid buyfagging for a year
>have plenty of disposable income
>decide to just have a cheeky look at the figure world and see what stuff I missed
>few hours later I no longer have that disposable income
There is literally no escape from the slope.
Muscuto has some nice stuff
I shipped all 100+ doujins after last winterket because I had 3 day layover in sandnigger territory.
Use RSAL and it should be around 10k for 80 doujins, but it might be cheaper since USA.
Looks like the release date is set for April 25th according to the MFC page.
Also this Migu nendo was delayed yet again to May now.
AND Ikumi was delayed to July hot damn.
I resized these a long ass time ago since people bitch about high resolution and I can't be arsed to change them back.
I would've posted a list if I noticed them all at once, but as you can see I noticed them all over the course of several minutes. The point is to get the news out about the delay, no need to nitpick.
Is it just me or have these threads been more active lately?
I don't like it, it's harder to keep up on my limited time, and despite the increase in posts, there's been no increase in quality content
I don't think so, there's been a general influx of newfags though, but the threads still last the same amount of time (about a day and a half)
>I resized these a long ass time ago since people bitch about high resolution and I can't be arsed to change them back.
No you didn't, you just went onto MFC and saved their thumbnail.
>Extra learning for the sake of your job
And there's also the fact that I'd rather watch my Chinese cartoons than talk about them for hours on end - though I often end up doing the latter with you guys anyways.
Eating food and buying expensive luggage.
Is anything not? I need to work so I can go to school, I need to go to school so I can get a proper job, I need a proper job so I can live comfortably, enjoying my chinese cartoons and plastic butts. In the end though, these two items that my life centers around are pointless in and of themselves, which means that the entirety of my existence is pointless.
Do it. I'm about to do something similar.
Wonder how I go about getting a GK of my own space waifu.
I'm tired my bad let me try again
it being in japanese doesn't really matter because as you said you can read it online. in my experience at least you don't buy manga to read it, you buy manga to have manga
I don't think there are high res scans anywhere. I've looked. Guess I have no choice but to keep waiting someone starts an auction with the BDbox that also happened to have this image.
So I'm looking through the guide and there's limited info on figure maintenance and on the internet in general.
So is it true that if I expose them to direct sunlight (ie. where window light can reach them) the colours will fade? What about regular fluorescent lighting? Is it worth it to invest in blackout curtains and only display them at night?
Other than that, I guess it's just dust I have to worry about right?
Only found a custom daki of mayonese, you'll have to get the tapestry, scan it and have it custom made.
If you expose it to sunlight for long periods there will be decoloration, watch out for heat as well.
Just use a microfiber and duster, sealing is the best way.
Good on them. I figure spending $20 with a higher risk of something being fucked up is better than spending 80 on eBay. Apparently Japanese used just means someone brushed against it once so I'm hopeful that the order will be fine.
>If you expose it to sunlight for long periods there will be decoloration
I'm planning to display it somewhere in this room permanently which has exposure to the sun. So good idea to use blinds/curtains? Or should I just move everything into the basement?
You can always mcgiever that shit.
It looks fine to me unless you leave the curtains open and the sun hits the figure.
By direct sunlight I mean for example placing it in the window taking sun rays 24/7.
>Censored the photo frames
What are you ashamed of anon
>It looks fine to me unless you leave the curtains open and the sun hits the figure.
Ah, that's reassuring. I'm still new to this so I don't know how much sunlight is harmful. I guess I'll just put it in a corner and get some drapes or whatever when I don't feel like displaying my stuff. Thanks!
My bedroom is a bit cramped for space right now, but I am considering it.
uuuuu i'm kind of confused. There are two T34/85's they are releasing. A green one and white one.. but it just says T34/85... is that both? Is that just the green one? I'm not sure?
I never quite understood this. What's the appeal of these retro 'soft vinyl' toys to nip collectors anyways?
This child needs a figure if there's any justice in the world.
This cute loli finally has a release date! April 25th! It feels like I've been waiting forever for this news.
Yea I've been trying to brain storm the best possible way to display them. I want my goddess Black Heart in the center of it all and her pose is fantastic compared to the Orange Heart and Purple Heart I have po'd. I plan to pick up a fuck huge wall scroll to have displayed behind them not necessarily of them or the series but that would make a nice backdrop for all the characters. I'm thinking a background featured in one of the games and have it printed onto fabric or something.
>mfw I think about how great it'll look.
Then came back to life, God bless Yoko Taro for that
Also she technically was never "alive" shes an android Unless you want to go even deeper and bring out how every one including the pods were alive
Upon exposure to certain wavelengths of EM radiation, the majority of materials in figures such as pvc, bonding agents and plasticizers will degrade, crumble and discolor. Sunlight just happens to be the strongest example as it's so potent. Fluorescent lighting also discolors to some extent with certain paints, as it still emits a broader range of the EM spectrum at even higher potencies. LEDs would be the best choice as these are the least potent of EM sources for lighting.
If you can't display them without being close to sunlight, it would be best to have diffusers such as those thin, ghostly nets in older houses.
Reflective window tint also helps, and there are some that reflect some other parts of the EM spectrum, too.
Prolonged exposure is what kills. By exposing figs to the least amount of light for the shortest periods would be best in this situation. Try rearranging tables/desks so that they receive the least amount of sunlight if sunlight is truly unavoidable.
He doesn't known what a GK is
> Delayed from June to July.
July is gonna rape my wallet
On Amiami, if there's one thing I no longer want from an order, is it better to cancel the entire order and reorder the things I do want or to split the order then ask for a cancellation after that?
sauce of that info?
Where one can see the release/delay dates for Koto's stuff?
Do you think this is a motherfucking game?
How well did this ad work for you this week? Picking up the twins anytime soon?
She is in stock on kirin hobby right now
if i order her will they actually be able to fulfill it
Just dropped 6K on pic related. I'd say it worked just fine.
You are looking for a super old figure so your best luck is at second hand store. I wish you the best of luck finding an undamaged version.
Mandarake had one but sold out.
Suruga-ya has one http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/602000703001. They didn't say if it was damaged or not but you will need to use a proxy.
Yahoo Auction also has one. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j399365671. But it's clearly somewhat damaged. It's only 1.8k though. You will need to proxy as well.
Good luck fellow Higurashi fan. I would recommend just setting alerts for Mandarake and wait. I will look around for a little bit more and post update if I find any link.
Got a mail from CDJapan about 2 hours ago.

Forgot pic, not that it matters. But since I bother to grab it from my camera...
release date was moved to june and yes they would I am just afraid that they are going to end up not having it because it is literally sold out everywhere else and was wondering if anyone had a bad time with KH?
Actually rakuten also has her (used). Says it's in good condition and has more pics. You need a proxy here as well. http://item.rakuten.co.jp/wonderrex/9200100966270/
Suruga-ya has another one that's slightly cheaper. Says B-rank and box is also damaged. Whatever that means. http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/602050412001.
She's sticking out her tongue.
As someone who wants to get into figure collecting after I finish university and move out of my home, are figures typically available for a while after release? I want the Popteamepic figures, but I'm wondering if I should buy them now or wait a year or two.
You will always be able to find a figure if you truly want it, but if its a very popular character you might pay a premium. For example holo figures that were released years ago now cost like 3x the original price. A year or two will be fine. But its always better to get them asap because it will always be cheaper to buy them as they come out.
Nope. Nothing new on that.
This is her base.
Dunno. She was still displayed with it though.
>Why is she so fucking beautiful.
Because she was specifically designed by a male with tastes similar to yours to look good mostly independent of reality and without the flaws that come of being 3D. Her competition is several billion random collections of traits ravaged by time and the elements on the daily.
>Why do I give a shit more about some piece of plastic than a fucking real girl.
Now if only they hadn't chosen a pose that makes her impossible to put into any case of the planet. I hope she has some event give her another rise in popularity so we get something else.
It's Attila the Hun(female) in her succubus bonus costume.
wat about this other Saber? plz not another fucking delay
MHX has been released.
Alter has hit their quota for the month.
I'll give you a cookie if you know the source material
>implying people aren't familiar with this fantastic resource
Were there any updates on this?
Preorders are open again on Ami. Bout to snag her, already got Rias
Might have considered him if they'd make main dude in a suit to have a pair.
God, I hope Griffon isn't shit anymore because I want these
I wonder when there might finally be a prototype for her?
I hope that's not the final pose because it's shit
I'll still get her anyways Best P5 girl Ann is okay too
I approved the payment through my bank, and native sent another payment failed email, so I updated the payment info and they said it failed again. What the fuck do I even do now?
Had the same thing happen to me, even after following all instructions.
However I do see a 9 cent charge from CREDIX in my bank statements?
Gonna contact my bank and native tomorrow :/
Also, you may need to go to your bank website and authorize the transaction. It bills you $0.09 and then the full price. That might scare some banks with a foreign transaction.
Yeah I'm seeing the nine cent charge, but it hasn't actually taken the full price out of my balance yet like it should, it's still saying the payment was reversed. I emailed Native now since they should be open, but I'm hoping it just fixes itself since I've already approved the charge.
oh god this just popped up now. My total balance has yet to change so now I'm even more confused.
Depends on the card and the site. Some won't work online at all, others won't work with sites that like to do holds or the like. For figure purchasing those are probably more trouble than they're worth.
Yep, that was me. I'll take more time for proper lighting another time, just wanted a quick shot of them all together
Here's a corrected shot
I did take them down from a bookshelf to take that. I'll get proper stands and such soon.
Nevermind that sticky note
Reminder to always rub one out before you order. Ordering by dick alone is dangerous
Oh definitely. pic was not related, I have her preordered.
Just a general friendly reminder to jerk off before checking out so you know you're buying with your brain as well as your dick
cant post tapestry it's too
