my friend sent me these for building a motorcycle tool for him. i dont buy small goods unless its waifu stuff, but these are pretty cute. they'll complement the upcoming koto Yukari nicely
She worth preordering? Doesn't look like any major quality issues.
All the shitty Kill La Kill figures are getting rereleased all of a sudden. Do you think Trigger is planning on doing another season or something?
I'm more of a fan of the gap between the tits and not uber squished ones
Humans are attracted to boobs precisely because they look like butt cheeks. The asses of many primates are hairless and change color and shape to indicate sexual maturity/readiness to mate, and humans' quadripedal ancestors would have instinctively reacted to them. It's still coded into our genes.
Poorfag here. Used my mother's card to buy my first stuff some days ago. One daki two figures. Now my mother is broke, in debt and will face serious legal charges. I might end up homeless. I envy the wealthy.
Just when the sculptor doesn't add proper weight to them, or when they are too round
I don't own one yet but I'm about to buy one, fuck it, I don't give a SHIT
Only thing is I have no idea what kind of pillow to buy, is there something good on amazon for less than $100? I want a 150cm and was looking at the DHR4001 for like 140, but then there's a Shin Magical Sweet for about $100. I was hoping to spend like $70-80 though.
Also has anyone bought a cover from animedakimakurapillow.com? They have a cover I really like in two way tricot but they seem shady.
The only people who have seen it are friends and they are fine with it, they even say it's comfortable. I am only embarrassed about it being a chinese bootleg but she has no official one so there isn't much I can do about it.
Now that we are talking about dakis. I'm going to order a custom one and I want it to be to scale, how should I measure her? She has one arm overhead and her legs are bent which makes it pretty difficult to measure how tall the daki should be.
dont. you have limited pillow options, make it fill out the pillow. doing it any smaller will feel like wasted effort when you see it (unless she's a legit loli) and doing it any bigger will make it impossible to fill
Why would you want it to be real. I'm overwhelmed with remorse. Why do so many people wish for the suffering of others. I regret what I did not only did I fuck myself but also my dear mommy.
But she's a big girl, she's close to 170cm, probably around 165cm without shoes. I must go with a 160cm daki at the very least. I'm super autist so I feel like I absolutely want it to match her height.
well if you're autistic enough you can make a custom pillow, but you're not going to be satisfied with the 50cm width either once its stuffed. decide how much effort and money you want to put in
>decide how much effort and money you want to put in
I'll move heaven and earth for her if I had to, anon. I bought a rare wallscroll and I'm going to buy a 180 A4 scanner just to scan this picture of her. I won't spare any expenses when it comes to getting a daki of her.
not that anon but I've used my mom's cc without her noticing or asking before to pay por POs (around 350-450) I would feel bad but then again I gave her 1000 bucks a few months later, though I never told her I used her cc.
its snug. if you leave the pillow itself out flat it grows to a very full shape, but beat down and slept on in a cover its just right. length is what its supposed to be
its very very absorbent and antimicrobial. they recommend machine washing once a year. when i finally washed it, it kinda pilled and made foam fluff so i would hand wash in a bathtub, but once a year is plenty often if you keep a clean cover on it. my regular down head pillows, in comparison, look disgusting after a year.
welp, get some art made that you're happy with, decide on the scale, farm it out to any screen printing place that can work with the material of your choice. if you're gonna go custom you can get exactly what you want, and theres no need to deal with elevens and international shipping/language barriers. the pillow you can DIY
I actually found an artist (from the same country as me no less) in deviantart that mimics my wife's series anime style to a t so I'm going to commission her soon. I have almost everything in place, but what do you mean not deal with elevens? I don't really know any other place that could make dakis, certainly not nearby since I live in a third world country.
The latest Prison School chapters are turning me into an even bigger Hanafag. But now I'm torn. I passed on the first Hana figure, because at the time I thought it was too expensive, but now it's $500. The second figure was shit. The upcoming figure is good, but the first one was way better.
Any chance of a re-release on the first one? Should I just settle for the new one?
My Dad said my the girl on my daki (my waifu) was sexy. My Mom said she looked like a very sweet girl and had a cute smile.
I'm pretty damn lucky given how supportive my parents have been of my autism and hobbies.
seems to me that lots of places can screen print and sew if you source the fabric you want. i just used a deviantart artist and a well known chinese site that used to advertise custom printed goods here, and i'm very happy with the colorfastness and durability after 2 years
Where would I want to start for a daki? I'm as poorfag as it gets at the moment, so I'm trying to spend like 50 bucks on pillow and cover. Once I've got my shit together I can consider coughing up for some premium shit
Depends on what you like but I'd say yes, its not that much more expensive since you are only going to be buying the one daki of your waifu, anything else is cheating and you would be a faggot.
Will you one day 'grow up' from buyfagging?
Or do you think that it will an eternal downward spiral into spending despair?
What will be the fate of all your beloved plastic butt/figures collection when you pass away?
My parents don't care about it, my mom even told me the girls are cute (I only sleep/display my sfw dakis).
Also, I only let my very close friends into my room, anyone else besides them doesn't even have the slightest idea.
Probably if i fall for the 3DPD meme.
> eternal downward spiral into spending despair
I'm already on it, minus the spending part.
> What will be the fate of all your beloved plastic butt/figures collection when you pass away?
Doesn't matter. I'll be dead.
Will you one day 'grow up' from posting the same shit every thread for attention?
Or do you think that it will be an eternal downward spiral into repetition and loneliness?
What will be the fate of all your beloved buyfag threads when you pass away?
i po'ed pic related because i'm curious about their quality
Wait until the release date; a lot of Scats had their heads broken off from her last figure.
This. Boobs come in different shapes and sizes, so squishing varies.
Depends on the angle in the pictures.
I really like that dress and the translucent hair.
I dunno. Maybe I'll just keep the ones of characters I really like, and just sell the ones which I don't care for anymore.
That's called reality, my friend.
Any word on their QC? Never heard of them until now. Other than that, definitely worth preordering in terms of the base and her pose.
You're not making sense. Then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
>Any word on their QC?
this will be my first from them, but i think some of their previous releases were well enough received to give it a shot. i do really like the base and outfit (minus the cape)
i don't disagree, but there's enough else going on that it still works for me
>came into some money recently
>Jibril fig comes out soon
>prices have gone up a ton
I have never been a expensive fig buyfag before, what will I be looking at for prices and availability after it is released?
Patchouli is my favorite 2hu, but I'm skeptical about this figure. The base in particular kicks me in the nuts because it's so damn ugly.
I don't know if it's worth the price, what do you all think? Did anyone pre-order this?
I sorta did. I used to have a pretty decent collection but I sold most of them off and now I only own about 4 figures. Haven't bought anything since.
I still do like looking at pictures of new figures though. I've just given up on buying shit.
Yes, I did. I don't mind the base. Shouldn't be that hard to swap something else if you really cared.
I wouldn't order a scale if you aren't 100% sure if you want it. No point asking what other people think. Also, if you are in this hobby you shouldn't ask if a figure is worth it or not. That's just a dumb question.
>you shouldn't ask if a figure is worth it or not
It's not wrong to do it when you ask about the quality of the product and if it's worth its price. Though you could do the research by yourself, asking never hurts.
>realize I don't have the gurren lagann movies
>nyaatorrents is gone
>only place that sells the blu rays charges 70 USD for the two movies
is it worth it?
I'm really tempted to get her. She would be my first preorder, and having till December to pay feels nice, since
Christmas money comes inand I can work a little after the uni.
FREEing's Luka will be up for preorder tomorrow, releases in November.
Fuck Alter and GSC for shuffling their release dates so much, shipping is a total bitch for two 1/6 scales and the massive Saber bike box.
When's /ourguy/ getting his merch? A man can dream.
Another day, another top-notch Griffon figure!
Don't you just love sarcasm?
Just how bad is placing items on preorder without a stable income? There is stuff I really want but I'm worried that I still wont have a job in 4 months. This is worst case, I'd really think I would have some form of job by then but I do worry.
Common sense is a good thing to apply in this situation. You wouldn't commit to buying anything else if you didn't think you could make the payment, right? Just think of this as the same thing.
I don't even like Love Live, why do I want this.
That is true actually there are some Mom action
It's a pink one then, fuck
this is literally bootleg quality.
Where do you guys buy risers for your figures? I don't have an IKEA or a Container Store in my shithole town, so I need to order online. I'm pretty sure this is not mentioned in the guide, I've read it a while back, but I don't remember anything about risers.
>waifu finally gets 3 high quality figures after almost 5 years
I love 2017.
Anon, don't be that way. We're friends. And I only want to enrich myself through you sacrificing your hobby.
There's an alternate module without the mask, so there's probably a way to display her without it.
>package literally 1 step away from my collection spot
>48 hours have passed since it was sent there from the sorting place, which is 10 minutes away by car tops
I'm starting to become very paranoid.
Had a minor heart attack when I saw the email since I always click ems. Last order had 2 figures and I switched to dhl as it was less than ems, but this time with 2 figures its 2 and a half times.
There are actually a few upcoming prize figs I want.
Even though I primarily collect scales nowadays, it's hard to resist something for less than $15 USD shipped.
What does /a/ think of this Eriri fig? Will there come other better ones?
Anyway, I had ordered this a year ago and now I'm staring at it wondering why the fuck I did. Do I sell it
for more Love Live?
Just received my Bikki after paying customs her ransom.
The paintjob could be better, but the sculpt is beautiful. Very nice figure overall.
I wish her base wasn't so ridiculously huge, fuck whoever thought that was a good idea. She isn't very stable without it because she's resting on her scarf and her feet are barely touching the shelf.
I'm not posting pictures because I don't have a decent camera.
I feel bad for Silent Mobius fans.
She's from a Kyoani show actually. I was thinking it would be possible since Kyoani's style isn't much different from Love Live's and she has drawn a Yui picture. She also has a nice picture of Asia from HS DxD who has a slightly different artstyle.
I'm just afraid that my completely legal goods will have disappeared into the nothingness.
They even attempted to deliver it, but I wasn't home as I had a doctor's appointment when they attempted to deliver, but now it has just gone up and disappeared.
Post the lewdest figure you own, thinking of finally breaking down and buying one for myself.
5 is best, but 1 or 6 will win for being the worst. Still, not a bad batch of designs overall. Better than last year's for sure.
Don't forget to vote, everyone:
I'll tell you why that happens. The worst ones are usually some centralized weird ass design that people with shitty taste can all get behind. The best designs have their votes split across people with good taste.
it's similar to why joke answers always win in polls.
>Anon finds his "grail" in chink city
Hello Worker is still my favorite Luka module, it's unfortunate that it's too generic of a design to ever be made into a scale though.
>being this autistic over the paintjob
Earring aside, it's still a painted prototype that's being shown. Don't judge a book by its cover; just wait until reviews are shown upon release.
>Not being autistic over the paintjob
Where the fuck do you think we are? Are you some kind of poorfag that can only buy bottom binned nendos that's been cummed on multiple times and just deal with it?
People always find reasons to shit on Tony's art/scales. Don't take their criticism too personally, I think it still looks pretty good.
I've moved on from buyfaggotry.
I used to buy figures that I like off 1999.co.jp before amiami opened up for international orders. I must have around 30-40 figures now, but most of them are still in their boxes.
I kinda stopped cold turkey for over 2 years now. Been spending the money for more important things, or for trips to Japan with friends and my wife instead. More fulfilling that way.
i know dude. i can't help myself. i dont even know what this fucking show is
I just re-read the buyfag guide and read what it said about solaris. how often do figures from there actually come in at shitty condition? Last week I ordered
8figures from there, mostly pre-owned.
This shit get posted on every fucking thread.
I've ordered 6 figures from them, half of them pre-owned, and I had no issues with anything at all.
Someone probably got unlucky years ago, put it on the guide to warn people, and now we get this post on every thread because of it, even though they're fine.
GOMENASAI GOMENASAI GOMENASAI GOMENASAI GOMENASAI GOMENASAI
Absolutely fuck all to worry about, most of my buyfagging this year and the year before has been pre-owned figures from Solaris, they're all fine. Also from past personal experience with other sellers, Solaris undervaluing actually seems to work 90% of the time so take advantage of that as well and avoid getting raped by customs.
I already tried that.
I've also searched on their official website and on their Wikipedia page and couldn't find it. Maybe they really don't have one but it's weird for such a big company.
>Tfw not sure if I really like/want a figure or just really like the character
I personally let the shipping price be visible and attract as little attention as possible.
What does the figure description say? Regardless I've noticed that Amiami and Solaris rating standards are super high, so usually worst case scenario a 4 star or B rating on packaging or item means the figure is missing some of its original wrapping (i.e - plastic bits that they stick between characters clothing to protect the paint, etc) or the box has minor dents, whilst the item iself looks immaculate.
Need some advice here. I recently bought a daki cover from pixiv booth using big in japan as a proxy. I asked them to undervalue to about 4000 jpy. Now I got a letter from my local postal company (belgium) asking me for a receipt and other info because the the info with the shipment was incomplete.
I paid big in japan half of item value up front (6200jpy) and the other half + shipping/proxy (10k jpy) when they shipped it. Is it safe to send them just the 2 month old 6200jpy receipt and explain that is proxy fee + item value?
But I'm on a journey that only he can understand.
So how was your first month of buyfagging?
I don't get why they're a meme here at all.
People here are usually statue elitists, flaming anything with joints while pretending they're better than /toy/, but for whatever reason FAGs are okay, even if they look like shit, have ugly joints and need work. I'm convinced there are less than a handful of shills here that somehow managed to get other people to buy this garbage.
Cu-poches are also pretty similar. The same people who flame jointshit, specially Nendoroids, are also the ones shilling for poches that look even worse than Nendos.
I'm expecting payment request tomorrow. Man she is so beautiful! <3
This includes customs fees and shipping costs.
This is really my first month of proper buyfagging and I've used $217 on three scale figures. Also got three other scales and a figma preordered and plan to preorder two more once they become available. Probably won't go harder than this because I'm not that rich.
I went slow at first. I ordered only one nendo of my waifu, then months later and few more nendos and one scalar.
Then about half a year after I started I ordered like 18 figures all at once.
Not at all. Took me a while to even consider buying some cheap small trading shit, then after that I bought a couple of prize figures
and a bootleg. It wasn't until my first pre-order that I started following things, learned about MFC and then went crazy with more pre-orders and a shit ton of older pre-owneds.
I first started with a figure that was discounted for a character whose game I haven't even finished yet.
Next thing I bought was a Kuroneko figma even though I don't particularly care for her all that much.
That's how most people get into it though. Start out with cheap stuff from something you like, then you learn about actual quality scales and move up from there. I'd even take a guess and say that's actually how manufacturers get people into this hobby.
I've come to bully you too!
This doesn't include western made figures or shipping
I know. That's how I started too, with the customs rape limit and steep shipping costs being what stopped me from getting in too deep. What opened the can of worms was the
May/Haruka scale from Koto.
Is Plum any good? They seem to be known mostly for making lolishit, can they possibly do my waifu justice?
Do we have the art for this? I really want the Rin from pic related, but If there's one for this set then I might not bother waiting
It just makes me a bit sad and disappointed to see this double-standard and shilling. I actually don't mind FAGs, figmas, Nendos, poches or anything of the sort, because I either own them or own similar things, though it puzzles me why some of it is "acceptable" and some of it apparently isn't as much, when in the end it's basically almost the same thing.
But you can post all of that stuff. FAGs just happen to be the curent fad so of course it's trending. Porkchops, nendos, etc. all had weeks of dominating these threads. Everything is relatively temporary, and if a current trend bothers you just ignore it till it too passes.
Your mistake is thinking of any portion of 4chan as a hivemind. It's not. I too own things from most of those categories but you have to realize the flaming is probably done by a proportionally small number if autists as well.
As far as the joint argument goes, FAGs tend to have many of the worst offenders armored or obscured by armor so they don't look as bad as they might.
Fair point. Still find it puzzling how it kinda goes against what most people (at least the majority of this thread) seem to like and post about, and the reason why the thread is here instead of /toy/, but it makes sense.
And yeah, I guess I'll take seeing the same FAG shilling instead of fucking Porkchop.
While you're right, you can't deny that this thread has some elements of what you consider a "hivemind" though. It's not on /toy/ because people favor scale statues a lot more than action figures, which is why the latter are usually flamed here.
>While you're right, you can't deny that this thread has some elements of what you consider a "hivemind" though.
You're going to see that in any general type thread especially and anywhere somewhat like minded people gather in general but elements of a thing don't make us a thing. You see way too much disagreement for us to even come reasonably close.
>It's not on /toy/ because people favor scale statues a lot more than action figures
It's not in toy because most of what we discuss aren't toys. We do have the anime motif to pull everything together though and that's why we're here. There is, however, some overlap. Cue headbutting.
>Terrorist bombing in Manchester

Will they bomb the weeaboos?
There's always furroes at it because this is a filthy amalgamation of several fandoms
This is my favorite Snow Miku.
What are the chances of this getting cheaper than 7,690 yen?
Should I wait or get it?
Does anyone have this Arc? How does she look in person?
I know it's a very old fig that won't stand up to today's but I really want this. But she's a trading figure.
Havn't seen a full scale yet but they did put out some scrolls and such for Rin and Saber from those designs.
Bought like 60 scales from mandarake in the first 4 months.
Now I spend around 20% of my monthly weeb money on doujin and the rest on amiami pre-orders. So around 3-5 scales per month.
Are there any forwarding services that offer DHL shipping? I want to order some doujins from suruga-ya, but from my previous experience the forwarders I used only offered EMS/SAL which cost a fortune for shipping books.
>prices have gone up a ton
What do you mean by that?
How can the price go up if it's not released yet?
If you're refering to the discount getting smaller on pre-order sites, I don't think it's an indication of what the aftermarket price will be. Just grab it at release if you already have the money.
Historic information shows that the sites that currently still have stock available for purchase are much higher than when preorders opened several months ago.
I guess my real question is given most places (except a few sites in america with hilarious markup) are sold out as far as preorders go, but will most places have stock beyond their preorders to the point I could actually find one at releases for close to MSRP? Say amiami or somewhere that currently closed their preorders.
Wait until the week she releases. If there are cancelled or unpaid orders shops will put the sudden surplus of stock up for sale. She may even pop up preowned on Mandarake right away.
After several days with delivery courier, she finally arrived.
Their Remilia was really good. As long as the prototype sculpt is fine and the figure is popular enough for them to bother putting in some effort Rory should turn out well. I think this will be one of their better ones.
Most scales are easy to get on release date. If it's a really popular character it might sold out fast, but stores that sell to oversea customers (NY, TOM, BiJ, among others) and stores based overseas will usually have it in stock much longer.
His love for Renge is strong and I can admire that, however >>157630927 is right. Service like this and going back to the same provider is why the prices in this industry will continue to rise and quality continue to fall.
The scarf feels pretty fragile and the base is big, 9" diameter.
I ordered Shinobu from AnimUK 22nd of last month. The estimation was 11th to 19th this month. It's still not here. Should I panic?
Ordered my first figure, pretty excited though the wait is gonna kill me. It was a re-release from a couple years ago and I got it a month late but I'm happy to finally partake in the hobby. Any good figures coming out/preorder? Only one I really have my eyes on are the Serval-chan Nendo.
Preorders are closed on AmiAmi. Do you think they're getting ready to send out payment orders soon?
>paid for 3-5 week freight shipping like the kike i am
>arrived in two weeks on the nose
Nothing. But the details could be better.
I wish it had some detail like >>157621505
You guys are right. Thank you.
I noticed when checking out at Mandarake that they now say they don't accept debit cards? Is that a new thing? I've used my debit card with them before, but that was over 2 years ago. Any advice?
Fuck Goodsmile forever for that stupid fucking rabbit. I wanted the clione. Goddamn it's been years and I'm still annoyed to the point where apropos of very little I bitched about it to a friend recently.
I've been using my debit card for years there though? I think the only limitation is that your card/bank has to support the "3D Secure" security protocol which not all debit cards actually have.
