Read the guide before asking any questions
I don't see it
Don't you just want to squeeze those chubby cheeks
I choose this thread since the OP image is better.
So what's the verdict on this figure? Good? Bad? Meme-tier?
It's definitely meme-tier now but that's independent of being good or bad. I think it's pretty mediocre, myself. The body is dynamite but the face, hair and stand are nothing to write home about.
i don't know about you but these might be the hottest sleeves i have ever seen.
how the fuck can you guys like this
I mean her breasts are practically spilling out of her dress, there's not much left to the imagination in the first place.
A skirt cast-off would be pretty nice though.
got these delivered today. no idea if I'll even unwrap them because i know reading it online/ digitally is always the superior way. but i gotta say, shit look good on a shelf.
So do people unironically buy porn to support the artists?
Better than buying BDs because "it supports the industry".
>all fucking Fakku!™ books
All you're doing is supporting Jewcob's shitty business model you moron. Buy raw stuff from Toranoana/Melonbooks if you are really that desperate to 'support' the artists directly.
So, I'm moving to a new place.
Post rooms. I need inspiration. Bonus points if almost everything is Ikea based, as I won't be able to afford anything better since I'll be broke as fuck.
I only saved this pic from the threads
I really like this guy's set-up. It's sleek and the display case is sexy.
Not planning on preordering it, but I love the face and the boob spillage.
How come it doesn't? I'm genuinely curious.
I love the blue rocks he used for the ocean on the bottom two shelves!
What was the verdict on this? Surprised to see it still in stock plenty places
12K for a 1/10? Dang, it seems like this hobby's getting more expensive every day.
I don't really get the point of multiple monitors. I've got two myself, but the second is always off. Much easier to organize everything on one larger screen. One 4k > Two 1080
Then again, pic related is a 1/8 for 8K.
Dude what. I literally could not live with at least 2 of my monitors.
Ever notice how this site only uses like 1/3 of your monitor? It's perfect for a vertical monitor.
Once you get used to all the real-estate it's hard going back
Sorry, I'm trying to find more with furniture.
My issue is having to turn my head to see what's on the other screen. You can mitigate this by moving to be in between both monitors, but not having my work directly in front of me just feels weird, and the large bezel in the middle of my periphery is quite annoying
Is she 1:1 or is everything to scale?
>That's scale Autism at work. I almost wish I had the drive to put something similar together.
Dont be a try hard. Im well acquainted with how they operate. Doesn't mean I'm not going to yell about it every time.
If I buy it, will they make Cadenza Kongou figure?
What's a good place to get manga magazines (and getting them shipped to North America without stupidly expensive shipping)?
In particular I'm looking at Ultra Jump.
The attraction for a lot of people is that it's not censored, and also the guy who runs it is a douchebag with way too much free time who hunts down every site who posts Fagku releases and teabags them. Basically, see >>157382230
It does. This guy is being a faggot. Buying anime on home video is the best way of showing support since way more money gets back to the creators than buying merchandise where every licensor involved in the deal takes a big chunk.
Isn't the vibration from the speakers bad for the doll?
Actually, what am I saying? Everything is bad for dolls.
Got some merch from Toraware no Palm, my latest obsession.
Still waiting on a towel, manga anthology and a few acrylic keychains.
I'm glad I'm not a bishoujo collector, some of them look worse than bootlegs, fucking kotobukiya.
She isn't very attractive, so the sculpt is fine.
I would have preferred a full clothed ver though..
Not awkward at all, there are many 1/4,5 by A-plus, so the size itself isn't a big problem.
This one looks kind of good and kind of bad at the same time. I hate the porn magazines because why buy them physically, really? But I also like the boxes that are on display because it creates a cozy feeling. And the display case is nice and I like that there aren't too many figures because a lot of people tend to do that which makes things look cramped.
Then you get to the second picture and it just looks like pure shit honestly. Way too much shit everywhere.
This is a case of too little/not enough decoration/interior design + too much white color which ends up making it look like a hybrid hospital/prison cell. So many people who try minimalism but utterly fail at it. The display case also looks ugly.
I like this one a lot except for the figures on the very top. They look so out of place, especially with the shadows being cast off them. Remove them and it'd be a high-tier setup. It would be top-tier if cleaning wasn't such a pain in the ass.
Literally Ken-sama. Trying way too hard to be a weeaboo.
Honestly I feel like way too many people buy a display case, fill them to the brim with figures and call it a day. That just doesn't work because it looks like shit. Personally I don't own a lot of figures (about 7-8) so I have them displayed out in the open on my bedroom drawer which is pretty long so the entire look fits. If I had any more (like 15+) then I would consider a display case, but it also has to fit with the rest of the interior design.
>still doing the entire set
At least gotta them commend for the perseverance.
But two of them were just concept art at WonFes. I imagined at that point the would back off and release only what they already had, if at all.
Afterall they've cancelled painted prototypes in the past yet these are ready to go.
Sometimes I wonder how I, alongside many others, thought this was acceptable.
It still means that the prototype wasn't finished.
Considering how BanG Dream was doing, the logical thing to do would be to put them on-hold, specially considering they've cancelled far more finished stuff previously.
Still, even when that was partly true (the other one being anime design and with crazy aftermarket prices), I still only feel sadness when looking at it. It's like it can't even shine next to nendos.
>shitty business model
Shitty in what way, exactly, considering it probably has the one of the most consumer-friendly businesses in the industry, all the while being great for the artists as well?
I mean if you don't personally like Jacob for whatever reason just say so, but there's no reason to unnecessarily extrapolate from there.
Nah, I got someone else to paint it. Nothing special though, just two different colors, with a slightly cream-ish white on the sides and a brown-ish grey on the front and back. The desk was custom made.
I can get a butcher's block of pure wood for $35 fully lacquered and oiled and a set of legs is anywhere from $10 to $100 that you drill in yourself. I assume a custom-made desk runs anywhere from $300 and up.
some one explain this to me?
>never went through customs
>'into sorting center' twice
>a different package around the same cost went through customs and sorting center faster than this one has been sitting 'in sorting center'.
>going have four figures coming from Amico this month from all thewe fucking delays piled up
>prepared for the massive coffin-box tree rape
My post-woman always gives me a nasty look when a box like that arrives.
This >>157401254. You're gonna have to rape her until she ahegaos every time she sees a box with FRAGILE! HANDLE WITH CARE! written on it in that particular font. It's the only way.

>Post rooms. I need inspiration. Bonus points if almost everything is Ikea based, as I won't be able to afford anything better since I'll be broke as fuck.
>I only saved this pic from the threads
I've seen your room already before.
Are you Russian?
>You will die before this figure ever gets released
What do you guys think about this?
>release date on Orchid Seed's website changed from May to ”Summer 2017”
For fucks sake
So far 6 months of delay, still no one can top this
Got Softness last week and finally remembered to take a picture.
Goddamit, phone autorotates the preview image it seems.
Damn, I was going to ask you where you got your desk.
I'm moving to a new place soon and I'm going to have a bigger room. Looking around for design ideas and display cases for my collection.
I have complex feelings about that one.
>bunny suit with a sword for some reason
>those curves though
Also the idea of potentially having to buy all 3 terrifies me.
And yet she would look ridiculous next to 1/4 Meiya. I wish Freeing would stop with the bunny shit.
>I wish Freeing would stop with the bunny shit.
>I wish Freeing would stop with the bunny shit.
Thinking about pre-ordering this, but the face is giving me doubts.
Their bunny figures are pretty good, although I hear that their other figures are hit and miss.
Face looks a little shoddy, but everything else appears decent.
I gave in and bought lewdbooks from fakku
i love them
It's not wrong but the dick tends to be fickle. Fap to the image set two or three times, sleep on it, then order if you still want it or better yet order after release. One figure you don't like anymore probably won't kill you but it's better not to waste the money.
I support both the artists and fakku
this is a buyfag thread, go be a poorfag somewhere else you butthurt
this is a buyfag thread
fakku is the largest english ero manga publisher in the world
also the best one
if you aren't interested in discussing or sharing your purchases please fuck off to another thread
I'm looking forward to getting this Tama.
They're in digital versions too. In-book afterwords from the author for the English version are a a pretty recent thing though, I think the F4U book was the first to get one. The new Higenamuchi book has one as well.
There's been artist comments on the site itself for a longer time though, which you can find on books, doujins, and some subscription chapters too. See the top comments in these for example: https://www.fakku.net/hentai/metamorphosis-english
>severe box damage on a model kit box
Thank god for autistic nips, saves me to much cash.
Also god damn, this was a lot more parts than i thought it would be. First time with a kit, so i thought it would be fun.
People like to talk about the stuff they buy and enjoy, you know. This shouldn't exactly be a foreign concept here, especially in this thread.
As for me, I already dropped by earlier and kept the thread open.
yes. they are basically gundam kits, just with female characters.
i use a gundamn kit to 'retrain' my cut plastic skills before i break FAGs... because gundamn kits are cheap nowadays
I work with building and fixing small electronics(like soldering surface mount stuff under a microscope stuff) all the time so I'm skilled with fine details. I think i'll be able to handle this. I already have nice high quality shear nippers that i use for electronics too and some very fine sandpaper.
So they are made in Japan?
Yeah I know what they are already watch the anime, but wanted to know if they aren't Chinese made
I know, already have most of the rips, but I want a book in the flesh
Loli generally stays in the subscription and other digital stuff (eg. doujin releases). Full-on physical loli books are their whole own ballpark, although loli has started making its way to regular physical book releases already. There's a loli chapter in the Leopard book from a while back and another in the Higenamuchi tank that just came out.
Oops, that was not the page I was supposed to post, had the wrong book folder open
Take your shilling elsewhere baldman
All those thing happen on /a/ already, how about your kill yourself
Mods dont give a fuck about crossboarders, have you seen the catalogue?
Full of /v/ like threads and dont forget the occasional /pol/fags shitting up threads
I believe that the copyright holder also invested in them or the licence contract have bind GSC in making a complete set before hand the anime flopped, that's my guess
I didn't realize fakku sold figures until this thread
ordered faster than the speed of light
I'll be in Japan next week, was going to visit Mandrake in Nakano.
Am I able to have them ship it if I buy in store? Can't take it with me right now because my case can't fit it.
>Am I able to have them ship it if I buy in store?
Maybe but I don't see the point, you could simply buy it over the internet right now.
Or just ship it yourself right after buying it, you'll be able to undervalue and chose whatever shipping method you want.
original release november 2015
actual release december 2016
I hate when people say liking Jeanne Alter is a meme. I've loved her since Orleans, and I started playing FGO at launch.
I don't know, I've only played for about a year and I honestly just don't understand the appeal of most the Avenger class servants character-wise.
I really liked her outfit in the Shinjuku Chapter at least though.
Well, she's the only Avenger I really like. It's a combination of how ruthless and angry she can be + her hangups over being a "fake" + the dorky shit she does like pic related that endear her to me. The scene in Shinjuku where she stays behind to fight Lobo because she's projecting on him is a perfect example of why I like her.
tl;dr she presses all my buttons.
Shinjuku outfit scale when.
I need a blushing Shinjuku Jalter scale.
This isn't even remotely true. Take Rebis, for example. He did a Q&A with Patreon backers and was asked specifically about Fakku and if it was worth it. Of the one release Fakku did of his, he got 10% of the sales from it. That means 90% was split between Fakku and Wani. How is that fair to the artists? They don't decide to have their works published through Fakku, they're merely told by Wani, or in many cases like with Haru Yukiko and Okumoto Yuta, they weren't even told at all.
If you want to support artists, import the book or donate to their Patreons if they have one. Pick up the releases on DLSite or DMM English if they exist. Fakku is a service to English speakers only and fails to be in any way meaningful to an artist's income.
Kill yourself, Daiz.
No he didn't. I follow Rebis and he never said that. It doesn't even make sense when you consider that Fakku never actually released one of his solo works, it's always a duo
Honestly just fuck off out of this thread. you must be the same idiots trying to make them look bad on the figure price and you got wrecked already
>He did a Q&A with Patreon backers and was asked specifically about Fakku and if it was worth it. Of the one release Fakku did of his, he got 10% of the sales from it.
Can you link or screenshot this (if it's backer only)? I'd like to see what exactly he's talking about considering FAKKU has only published two magazine chapters from him in the subscription and nothing else.
>They don't decide to have their works published through Fakku, they're merely told by Wani, or in many cases like with Haru Yukiko and Okumoto Yuta, they weren't even told at all.
This is also completely false, everything that gets published on FAKKU needs to be approved by the artist, and in couple cases they've said no (eg. ShindoL when Metamorphosis was still being serialized since he was releasing it on his Patreon in English at the time). A couple times Wani's editors have messed up on informing artists when exactly the English publishing would start, though.
>Pick up the releases on DLSite or DMM English if they exist.
The artists actually get less on those site in comparison to FAKKU, though (50-60% vs 70%).
These threads used to be alright, slow and lots of complaining but alright.
Then you showed up and ruined them like you ruin everything else.
Buy a fucking ad you worthless fool.
>order some shit from Mandarake
>first time buying from them
>they make it look like the input of my credit card info was a mistake
>input my credit card and submit 3-4 more times before giving up
>try to purchase shit today at local grocery
>credit card doesn't go through
>check +$400 on $130 purchase from Mandarake
>credit charge is gone
What do I do? Do I order just one more time? Why the fuck don't they have a confirmation that my credit card info was accepted. Fuck!
I don't usually like Sonicos but god damn. How did they manage a girl this thick
I'm not sure how, but my dick certainly appreciates it.
Hey, I'm not the one raging over someone else's purchases here. I wouldn't have even shown up here if it wasn't for people posting badly misinformed shit on the subject.
>working in retail
>not picking yourself up by your bootstraps and becoming a software developer making 55k starting in FL
We should probably add Fakku to the guide now that they've been at it 2+ years
This gets asked too often here. But you usually build up your collection over a long time. Even if you only spend $50 a month, if you've been collecting for a while then over the span of three and a half year you can spend 2k.
Unless you are one of those people who likes everything, this hobby honestly isn't that expensive. Within a year, I usually only see 4-5 figures I want. Figures have been more expensive lately but that still ends up around maybe $600 a year or $50 a month. $50 a month is comparable to what some people pay for phone / internet etc.
I still don't understand how can people work and go to college at the same time. I just go to college and it completly destroys my life,
and that's the same for all my classmates.
I guess it's different for each country.
That wouldn't change anything, though - it still means pointing to the guide is currently irrelevant when it comes to this particular subject, since it simply doesn't cover it.
>That wouldn't change anything, though - it still means pointing to the guide is currently irrelevant when it comes to this particular subject, since it simply doesn't cover it.
that's the point you clearly need to come here more often
You can't balance shit when you have classes from 8:30 to 18:00 everyday and have tests every week. And if you have a lighter schedule, you still get worn out by the stress and depression that basically 80% of this country has.
If anyone here has bought from Fakku, then please give me the following information:
>Price compared to Japan (excluding shipping)
>Delay after Jap release
>Countries they ship to/don't ship to
>If they use points/bonuses or some shit
>Any misc information people should know when reading the guide
I've never bought from them and never will, so unless someone else wants to add them then I need this information to put them in the guide. And as much as some people don't like them, it's better if the guide includes them. If you don't like them, then feel free to say why and I'll take it into consideration when adding them.
If there's any other store missing then give me the same information and I'll sort it out.
Can barely find any vids or reviews of this, anyone own it/know how good it's meant to be?
Jeanne Alter is hilarious and adorable and her haters are retarded.
Her ass is way too big
And that swimsuit is way too small. It looks uncomfortable with her boobs stretching and digging into it
