>Hobby Link Japan shipping is usual lower, but their prices are a bit higher, private warehaouse is available
>Hobby Search Japan - items stay in stock the longest
>Mandarake - search figma or フィグマ

So TLDR I got a bootleg Miku for the price of the real thing. The odd thing is that the plastic actually feels pretty good, and there's no casting problems like there were on another bootleg I got once (Figuarts Sailor Mars).
Got mine in the mail yesterday to my surprise. The inside of the tank makes a good storage area.
Is glue needed to attach the headlights and other tiny pieces, or do they click into place?
Is the packaging all card or is it plastic blister as well?
I have no idea where I'm going to store the box, so I wonder if can collapse it or store other things inside it.
> Using it to store toys and accessories when they're not on display or being used
Also, I forgot to ask you this anon:
Can you measure the width of the tank? we need confirmation of it (inches or centimeters are fine)
Thanks in advance
I told myself I wouldn't buy any boat girls, that I wouldn't give in
I had a question for you /toy/, to help me assuage some possible buyer's remorse. Once a Figma's price inflates, does it ever go down a large amount? I bought a Saber 2.0 and feel like I may have overpaid and was too eager.
I largely avoided the characters since the designs didn't strike me enough to warrant a purchase.
This one however I'll allow since I can pair her up with Mato with Little Armory weapons for the smug girls squad.
Good taste. I'm looking forward to her as well, but I can't wait for Prinz.

I don't want to be a ship fucker, help me
You can remove all the boat parts so you just get a smug green schoolgirl with braids.
I still can't believe that tank is coming in the mail right now. I don't even know what I'm going to do with it.
I hear ya. I tried to hold out on Shimakaze but I caved on her and haven't regretted it. Any of the enemy ships would instantly get my money though.
Fuuuck and now realizing that she's German boat I kind of want her too.
>still no sign of a kiso figma
it has to happen someday right?
Operator-chan? I can't wait for her either.
Is this strange paint defect a common issue with Iron Man? I was thinking of picking one up, but not if this happens to it in such a short amount of time.
how much does this thing cost? and are the treads just flexible rubber? It looks OK...but seriously basic, not even very many molded parts.
Too bad they didn't choose a cooler tank, like a tiger or panther.
>Too bad they didn't choose a cooler tank, like a tiger or panther.
If you haven't noticed until now, they choose that tank because if the tank the main girls use in the anime, and they have already made the main girls figmas
Is anyone attempting to mod the tank with proper rc? That's my plan, I'm hoping I can just throw a standard rc board and receiver in there on the existing motors. As long as there is two motors, which it looks like there is, it should just work.
>Is anyone attempting to mod the tank with proper rc?
Seems like it.
There's these picco neemo things which are coming out this month. Otherwise I'm waiting on Operator-chan to see how much part swapping I can do with her.
More pics for Yukikaze
More for the tank
So who do you guys think we see first, Zero Suit Samus or Minato Arisato/Makoto Yuki?
Persona 3 protagonist. The fact that we've gone through several events now without them even showing the card for ZSS leads me to believe that she's on the backburner, if not altogether cancelled. Maybe Max Factory realized that nobody liked Other M.
I don't think I've ever been hyped for a figure more than this, especially for something that didn't originally come from an anime or game or whatever. This looks like one of the few toys I might get more than one of to customize.
This is the most info we have on her, so I'd say she's in development hell like Archer was for years.
GSC SHIPPING UPDATE
>Shipping out from GSC on the 12th November 2015:
FREEing - figma Bubble Head Nurse
FREEing - figma Red Pyramid Thing (Rerelease)
>Shipping out from GSC on the 16th November 2015:
Max Factory - figFIX Anchovy
Kinda hoping we get some more P3 characters that aren't Aigis. Minato/Makoto is already great, but I'd love some more party members. Surprised we didn't get Yukari or Mitsuru considering Chie and Yukiko were the only P4 characters until recently.
I gave up a long time ago.
>no swappable buckethead accessory
figma ZSS is currently in prototype production according to this tweet:
ちなみに! 「figmaサムス・アラン ゼロスーツver.」も企画進行中!! 現在原型制作中につき、まだお見せできませんがご期待下さい!
ZSS scale is being rereleased too.
>Modifying the tank to be RC when you could buy a scale RC tank for the same price
It's not even a good mod since the treads don't operate independently
Just got her in. Can't wait to get home and open 'er up.
>Impying most people who buy the GuP tank don't want it just to display the GuP girls or other figmas riding it.
>Implying there are many 1/12 Panzer IV RC tanks that can house figmas for that price.
For most people the figma tank is just a display piece. And for its size, the price is pretty reasonable.
It's that guys fuck up then for asking for the price of an unreleased figma, not the one responding - he had every right to believe the one asking was asking about the statue.
The one faggot asked "how much is retail" quoting a post with the last line "ZSS scale is being rereleased too."
So wow. You are dumb if you are complaining how he replied, and that is that.
Holy, fucking, shit...children...
Damn, Monogatari fans are getting more spoiled than the Star Wars fans. Sorry that not literally every single character from your ten series long anime has a toy from the exact line you want yet.
Also, talk about released figmas or take it to a you knoe thread.
And I was referring to the statue that is getting re-released, especially since I was replying to the comment about the statue getting a re-release. Holy fuck, you're the only guy who has any concept of inference. These generals are filled to the brim with retards, holy SHIT
Just received my very first Figma, the first thing i said to myself was: Man she's so small!
Basically, it's a Nendoroid with more, smaller joints. She's pretty cool.
I should receive another one during the month too.
Some are smaller, as they are sort of more in scale than they were before. They are little girls after all. Characters that are older and/or taller are noticeably taller like Mokoto or Satsuki.
So when I got home and opened her up I noticed one of her lower legs had a mold defect on it. It wasn't sitting on the peg correctly.
I sent GSC a message to see if I can get a replacement part. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
I've only had to do it once before and every thing turned out well.
My first figma (Lucina) had finally shipped from the states and is currently being processed by Canadian customs.
Does customs open the shipping boxes? What goes through there minds when they see toys purchased by grown men? What are they thinking when the toy is lewd?
Probably just process it like most packages. Lewd ones probably get a good laugh
>tfw lewd wall scrolls on the way right now
>customs officers mention say you have good taste in a letter within the package
I don't really know if I want him because I like the original manga or because the abridged series. It looks pretty much perfect nonetheless.
I don't dig they way they articulated the torso, that crease is too obvious. But I will buy it anyways because I'm a Fatefag that owns every Type-Moon figma released.
I wish they'd have gone with the justice jacket. Really liked that design more than the school uniform
Guess his release will make the old Shirou figma increase in price.
>mfw bought a 2nd set of figma Shirou and Casual Saber just so I could get 2 winter mitten campaign bonus years ago from Amiami.
>mfw they are still sealed.
I'm preordering him for sure, but yeah I was just considering how shit a lot of Yugiohs designs are. Like all the time you hear people make fun of how crazy anime character's hair is, but Yugi is on a different level.
God, I really wish they'd stop packaging only certain figma faces with figFIXes. I really don't want to buy a figFIX, but Nagato's shouting face, Yukikaze's damaged face are both must haves for both characters.
I'm on the fence just because it feels wrong not to get a figure on one of my favorite cartoons/hobby as a kid, but man looking at it now I'm just like...wow.
I had stacks of those cards but now that I'm looking back I don't even think I liked Yugi's design as a child.
Nice buzzword there. All I'm saying is that you don't sound very enthused with the figure, so purchasing it at the likely 7000 yen level with very little accesories and probably a webshop exclusive will make you regret the purchase almost immediately. Control your impulses.
Can anyone find out if this is a bootleg just from these photos?
You really thought a figma wouldn't get delayed these days?
Then no, no it will not be a bootleg.
unless the place it's shipping from says CHINA or any variation of those letters put together, then it will be a legit figure.
Not him, but years ago I bought three legit figmas from a chinese ebay seller for a good price. The rule of thumb is not buying from china, but if you have half a brain and some common sense it's easy to tell the difference between the few legit listings and the fishy as fuck ones.
>Max Factory quality
The little lights and ladder they packaged separately don't even fit.
The stuff circled in blue is fine and fits pretty well
The thing circled in red is held in by gravity. One little bump and it comes flying off
The green circle around Saori's head is suppose to have a little ladder piece. It's too short so it doesn't fit in the little notches. I'm guessing why it's not in this image
The pegs for the lights circle in orange are too small so it doesn't fit in it's hole
Nothing a little glue can't fix, but I'd have expected something like this to not even be an issue for the price.
>The green circle around Saori's head is suppose to have a little ladder piece. It's too short so it doesn't fit in the little notches. I'm guessing why it's not in this image
It's in there. You need to cut part of it, look at the instructions.
This is a model kit, so having to use glue to attach some pieces is the norm.
The little ladder in question. Tank itself is great, but I just don't feel this kind of QC issue is appropriate considering the price and the fact that they're selling the accessories separately for 1.5k
>Nothing a little glue can't fix, but I'd have expected something like this to not even be an issue for the price.
For the price I was expecting LESS quality. They cheaped out most of it (no paint, trying to get most of the detail using the minimum amount of separate pieces, leaving the tools as an extra set) so the price doesn't get out of the charts and still made a good job with this thing.
I don't know what where you expecting, but for the size this tank isn't all that expensive.
You need to cut this, dude. Look at the instructions.
Have you checked the wires? You can detach the turret after rotating it enough. Maybe one of them is loose or something.
short answer: don't order from there ever
long answer: it's a gamble, depending on the figure (use myfigurecollection to see if a fake exists) and of course the description of the seller (if it says "china ver"= fake), so if you want to try do it, but be prepared for the worst
more pics for the figma David
His ass is a lot less detailed then I expected. Hopefully the final version will be better.
Does anyone here buy stuff from Amazon.co.jp? I knew about it for quite a while but never knew they had literally everything on there. Is it a good option for buying figures? I have read the buyfag page, but I wanted to get opinions from other people. It's a shame Amazon jp doesn't do Global shipping for the majority of their figures....
The penis itself is such a tiny bump on the balls. It's possible that phallic bump detail might be lost during mass production molding, then all we have is just a ballsack. GSO exclusive should've been an optional XL size penis attachment; that would sell well.
You'd have to use a proxy to order from amazon.jp. I used FromJapan before and they're pretty good, but the fees and shipping generally aren't too worth it unless you find an item for insanely cheaper than on any other worldwide-shipping site (I found a figure that was being sold second-hand for ~$30 on Yahoo!Japan when it was usually around the $200-$300 mark at other places).
I see, I was looking at Tenso as a possible middleman, as the shipping didn't seem bad at all. I have to provide verification for my identity, so I wanted to see if anyone had other options before I went ahead and did that. Have you used the Global shipping that Amazon jp has on select goods? I'm wondering what the shipping is like on there.
You're really missing out Sodoko-anon
>tfw you have no experience eith painting or gluing
Is idolshit really that popular in Japan? I still don't really understand why Hatsune Miku gets so much love.
The only thing close to idols I really like is Hackadoll, and that's just because of trap-boy.
Seriously? She's my least favorite vocaloid, but goddamn I want a Gumi, IA, and Calne. If she's getting a figma then it at least means they haven't completely stopped making vocaloids aside from Miku.
probably not. It is a rather essential part of his character.
If anything I bet there will be a face plate with the pharaoh's eye in the middle of his forehead, or his duel disk with cards on it.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind so much if they didn't have that stupid flat rate shipping. End up paying literally double most of the time. I do like the idea of supporting the creator directly in theory, though.
Sakura doesn't have the freaking book hanging from her neck in every single frame of the show.
Seriously, thinking that the Millennium Puzzle would be the exclusive accessory is beyong retarded. I'm sure it would be some specific cards (a hand with the five Exodia pieces, maybe?) or a Kuribo figure.
>non-scale 4.5" revoltech mini is 4" scale
>1:18 scale Deadpool's waist is as wide as Revoltech Minis Snake's thigh

>Revoltech Mini Snake in 4" scale would stand 6'6" tall IRL.

Sudden McFarlane's Halo figures are 1:18 scale just because they stand close to 4" tall.

Anything for you, Duke
BRS are dfficult to tell at a glance since they're one of the few properties that don't use a holo sticker to determine it's an official product, as GSC completely owns the merchandising aspect of the franchise.
Just noticed this "Little Armory Package Artworks" just went up for pre-order on amiami.
>mfw [Bonus] -Little Armory limited model "M32A1 type"
>[Little Armory limited model "M32A1 type"]
>United States Marine Corps model based on type M32 of Little Armory.
>This is a limited type with different body color and details.
>*This item is offered on a first-come, first-served basis in case of the the item being limited in its available quantity from the maker.
pre-ordered as fuck
Package Artworks makes me think it's just an artbook with all the pictures on the boxes. Really glad if that's the case since I've been on the fence about saving all my boxes since I like the art.
Thanks for your post, I didn't realize it came with a bonus. Definitely getting it now.
no idea if there is any revealing info in this image
Just ignore that anon's posts since that usually comes up anytime Berserk gets talked about.
Only have Berserker Guts to speak for but he's pretty fine if you can make a diy cape since the one he comes with hinders his movements. He's the most expensive choice usually while Black Soldier ver. follows second.
I heard the Black Soldier's paint job might be hit or miss for some but try to look up photos on MFC to see if it works for you.
Then there's Band of Hawks Guts but I haven't bothered to look into that release yet but he shouldn't set back your wallet as much as the other two.
The one issue I will note for Berserker or Armored Guts is his torso joint or section seems to become loose after some fiddling around. I remember one anon's torso popping from the joint but it's an easy fix whereas mines got disconnected where this plastic bump seems to attach to his torso.
Like anon here, I only have Berserker Armor Guts. Its torso isn't exactly loose, but it can be a bit hard to get it into place every once and then.
Wish I had the knowledge and experience to make a cape for him, though.
>Wish I had the knowledge and experience to make a cape for him, though.
Another anon explained how they did theirs in another thread that literally just died, but you're in luck, I took a screenshot.
Anyway, yeah, I have all 3 Guts figmas and the Black Swordsman one is a better action figure to play around with simply because his cape barely hinders any movement. But I also believe that the Berserker armor version figma makes a better display piece since it looks very unique and well-crafted.
In terms of price, you should keep an eye out on Mandarake and Jungle. I think they'd be the cheapest.
Sounds tempting as it seems that it willl be an artbook with the art of the boxes, plus a variant model M32A 40mm Multi-Shot Grenade Launcher
I think that 2k for an artbook isn't a bad price, but 48 pages is a too little to be honest
Nice, I hope that they do V4X Luka, Gumi, and some of the others
Has there ever been any Fullmetal Alchemist figmas? I remember mistaking a revoltech figure for one, as well as seeing long-arms Edward from the PAK series.
This grill is $720. Is this normal among figma? Is she worth it? Because I really enjoy Aegis.
Normally I don't mind answering questions to help an under experienced anon. But the checklist for every released figma and as far as I know a list of planned/painted figma is posted in EVERY thread.
Just ordered Lucina for 6800 yen on Amiami, now waiting for shipping to be calculated. I think i did great, since it equals to about 70 Canadian bucks while they sell for over 120 on eBay and Amazon without including the shipping.
>Kiriri will never get a figma
>Ranko and Anzu will never get an anime ver. rerelease
I'm the anon from a few months ago who was asking how to remove the broken hand joint of my figma Lelouch. Finally getting around to doing it tonight, can someone remind me of the process again?
As far as I can remember I just heat up a safety pin/paper clip on a candle and jam it into the broken plastic then leave it to harden and pull it out again. Is this correct?
>inb4 lol hamhands again.
If you missed my original post a few months back I got him MIB and the hand snapped the second I tried to move it.
Well it worked out fine, the broken hand fits fine as well as other hands with the nub on the end.
Made a really shit guide for future reference in case someone else breaks an older wrist joint. [Also so I don't spam the thread with images/I remember some anon wanted to know the results of this]
Should probably also specify I didn't intend to make it a guide when I was compiling all the images together, it just occured to me before I uploaded the pic, hence the shitty pic order.
If they made her, she must be as tall as the Giant Warrior to be accurate with the other CG figmas
I hope that they release Miki and at least Takane and Mikoto
If you don't mind have chibi versions of them, you could consider get into Kotobukiya's Cu-poche line; They have released 4 characters and 2 more are on PO, so 6 characters out of the 13 girls cast is a good sign that they will do the rest, just saying
Nice M8, but please rework it to put the pics in order and a better arrangement of the text
>please rework it to put the pics in order and a better arrangement of the text
Yeah I plan too. I'll post the updated version next thread since the thread seems to slow down past bump limit.
>she must be as tall as the Giant Warrior to be accurate with the other CG figmas
I want it. I want it now
Sorry for the stupid question, but after a half hour of googling, I can't find anything.
Would I be able to put figma head/hands on a figuarts body without modification? If not, would it be possible with modification? Keep in mind, it doesn't have to go both ways, I just want figma heads to fit on a figuarts body.
In case you're wondering the reason, I much prefer Body-chan to the She Archetype, but I don't own any figuarts.
So Im planning on grabbing the new Motoko and was wondering if they had any decent Logikoma to go with her

Yes, the archetypes weren't delayed.
That blows, anon! What are you going to do with your non-movable tank, though? I'm sure it'd make for a nice display piece, but having two of them would mean less space. I'd suggest to try to fix it, but I'm not sure if that's possible or if you've got the experience (not like Google can't help).
