Read the guide if you're new or have any doubts
Continuing from the last thread: These are probably what you want to buy, not the originals.
The whole set is cheaper than one original tends to be, and they look just as nice.
>26 days until Wonfes
I need to buy a japanese girl?
I'd buy her if I could.
To later sell her organs, right?
It's not happening
No, I'd highly recommend against getting Chinese bootlegs of the rings/gems. Not just because BOOTLEGS but the fact that Chinese Quality means they will tarnish and rust like there's no tomorrow.
The silver "paint" will chip after a few days of wear and pretty soon you'll see brown rust or green oxidizing leaching out onto your skin if you touch or wear the stuff.
Yeah, on second thought, the Movic ones are nicer. The other one does not seem to be as accurate as the Movic ones.
Waiting for Figma Yellow Vividbutt. Normal, Palette and Docked.
Oh, and Akuma Homura.
They were fine so far.
I asked earlier, but will again.
Ordered from NY, and now all the prices for what I ordered are much higher, 30$ usd some cases.
Will they cancel on me or something, or do they just automatically raise anything people buy or something?
Will they increase the price on what you already paid for? No way. I doubt it highly. That's something I was worried about when I made domestic orders, but it never happened. I wouldn't imagine it being different for international orders.
Does anyone know what "Classification: SQ" on MFC means?
Well, you could. But I think a mod replaced the pic.
>he fact that Chinese Quality means they will tarnish and rust like there's no tomorrow
I think even the originals are "Made in China" -like figures are-, because they're both better and cheaper at making these things in quantity.
> silver "paint"
Paint? It is actual metal, polished stainless steel or something (not confident with metals, but it is metal).
SQ is the name of Banpresto's nicer prize figure line.
Roughly 1/8 scale, quality is better than average prize but still not regular scale quality. Unless you're comparing against ClayZ or Griffon.
>Ordered from NY, and now all the prices for what I ordered are much higher, 30$ usd some cases.
Huh? That has never happened to me.
Are you sure you actually ordered and didn't just put things into your basket?
Nope, the shiny exterior chips and tarnishes badly very quickly and then you have the underlying metal or alloy core rusting away. That's generally how the Chinese do things.
Unless what we're talking about is actually authentic Takara Tomy Art's stuff?
No, my order is done and paid, worried they would cancel and force me to rebuy at new price.
There seemed to be other issues of this nature in mfc forum.
What exactly are prize figures? Are they just...figures you win as a prize from an event? I'm confused because I think of high quality figures when I see "prize figures" but they usually seem far from that.
That was expensive.
Please die scum.
>full sets for that cheap
Good stuff. I think I'm about to spend the same amount on only two figures. I hate buyfagging.
Well I just learned of this Sonico figma with the BD. Do y'all know if they'll re-release the Tiger Parka Sonico figma too?
The buyfagging train has no stops.
Yeah pretty much, and they are usually cheaper and have less detail. Think you can get them at arcades too.
>I hate buyfagging
S-surely her post-market solo price will be less, r-right?
So...how new are you?
Please read the guide for more details.
The general theme is that the item is:
1) Has to be 'won'
2) Does not have a pegged retail price
They can be split into two varieties, the common arcade game prize that you can win from machines and game centers, and the lottery prize ones that require you to pay per drawing. Some retailers may stock prize items for sale if the distributor allows it (and they are given suggested prices). Most prize items, however, don't follow this route.
> Nope, the shiny exterior chips and tarnishes badly very quickly and then you have the underlying metal or alloy core rusting away. That's generally how the Chinese do things.
I've bought maybe a hundred pieces of fashion jewelry and even real silver / gold - coated ones. Most of it had real metal surfaces, not paint [though of course inscriptions and prints and the like often were paint].
But let's not discuss the general case - the jewelry in question simply is made from some rust-resistant metal of sorts + glass, not something like rusting iron.
It's not by any means dry here and it hasn't stained or rusted.
> Unless what we're talking about is actually authentic Takara Tomy Art's stuff?
No, I think it's reasonable to assume it is an unlicensed production run of sorts.
Whether it happened in the same factory that produced the originals or not is anyone's guess.
Prizes from crane catcher games or special lottery prizes
I did read the guide. That's why my definition was pretty accurate. Thanks for the extra information. It's appreciated.
good taste man
>I don't understand sarcasm even with a reaction image attached so I'll just call everyone new
I'm talking about the Chinese bootleg and knock-off rings and necklaces that can be bought for 20 yuan or far less than what they copied. The plating rubs off very quickly.
I haven't been in these threads for a good couple months. What happened to cheap paperfag?
does that include shipping?
It might be my autism, but that GIF didn't send the message clearly at all. It looks like >>100195076 didn't get the message either.
That never happened to me, but I don't really know what other people experienced.
They do, however, not have little customer service.
For example, I once ordered a figure, then the same figure again.
And I pre-paid both, but even months before release they just didn't want to look to it that the shipments are combined in one package when the figure is finally out. That's really rather shit.
Yep, that includes shipping.
It was going to be 15,000 more with a couple other sets but I couldn't get them because of non domestic shipping on Amazon Market.
I wanted to get Kino no Tabi LNs and Jinrui set as well.
Is the jewelry in question the Movic soul gems?
Who are you quoting?
i really need to get more manga this way i need to keep up my moon reading
What am I going to do?
The Movic Soul Gems are okay. They look pretty and the price isn't too bad (unless you want the full set for completion's sake). However they are fragile. The top little bit's connection to the gem is made too skinny and it actually bends if you press on it, so you have to be very careful while handling it to make sure it doesn't snap off.
Even in that price range, I didn't have too many problems, but I mostly didn't buy /a/-related imitation jewelry.
This was the one imitation I bought, and it seemed good, but it also is more like 2-3 times as expensive as 20 yuan seem to be... though maybe I just over-paid?
Anyhow, feel free to buy and test it with a chisel or something. It just didn't rust or stain here, that's all.
Buy more chinese plastic girls obviusly
Yeah, I think I'm going to get pic related unless someone else has a better option. I couldn't find a better Mami than this.
>Discontinued licensed LN that's selling for $700+ new
Love is over.
Thanks for reply.
And i just got that figure today, pretty nice i must say. For 60 It seemed like a pretty good deal.
I'm gonna need photos of her booty for analysis.
While speaking of shit girls, can anyone explain to a genuinely curious guy why she's so popular? Not only in terms of buying figures, but why she's always favourited as best girl.
£600 already this year.
I was going to hold back.
I think they're closer to ACG soul gems, But just an imitation.
What you want to do is to wear it 24/7 and let it absorb your sweat and oils and daily soap and showers, and see how it holds up. Good jewelry will hold up just fine (even Cospa's stuff haven't rusted in the showers for me) while mainland Chinese stuff has always turned into disgusting messes.
So I know that the release date for the Rebellion BD was leaked, but do we have any idea of when the preorders will emerge? I'd like to toss it into my April Amiami order, and I'm admittedly worried about it selling out quickly.
I think that's probably the best Mami out, yeah.
Well, she looks fit and wears a skin-tight latex-looking suit. I like her for that reason.
She also was one of the early *very* emo + damsel in distress characters.
Fairly weak, mentally unstable and easily influenceable women seem to have appeal to some.
She's also in many ways very nondescript leaving room for all sorts of projections.
> why she's always favourited as best girl
"always"? That's a stretch.
Whats the price?
I love this dude.
what exactly is the point? It's just a figure in a box.
Best girl when?
But it's not, advertisements went out yesterday.
Well, thanks for that. That did help and made sense. I say always because ever shit Eve threads I see with waifu wars going on, it's usually a bunch of Asukafags bashing everyone else. They usually seem to outnumber the others.
To see how the figure looks without fancy lighting and angles of course.
It's close to 24/7 with piercings and ear jewelry. But that's -again- unrelated.
I don't think you want to wear such a soul gem 24/7, either way.
She's around $60 - $70
I really hate hearing people pronounce her name is
>Availability within 1-3 weeks
>Out of stock everywhere else
let's see what happens.
Oh, I stand corrected. In that case, I'm guessing it's going up pretty soon. Did the ads mention a preorder date (I know these sorts of things sometimes do), or should I just check up on Amiko often?
Pretty decent review.
Would be better with a camera & lighting that allows for decent close-ups though.
Yeah and his camera quality wasn't very good either.
I'm betting payment requests will come out for this tomorrow.
Sup Calibro, stay hype we're gonna get this.
Release date is April 2 and when each individual retailer will start taking preorders is up to them. Check with your favorite retailer.
Why does amiami say May release and HLJ say January release?
Well, it is worth trying. Such a good series.
Aren't there two batches coming out at these dates?
I think so. I see two different figures on the GSC site. One says January and one says May.
If you were here when it went up for PO you'd know it lasted about half a day and then it sold out, so GSC made a second batch of POs for may.
Which is also sold out. God. Pic related is so true it's stupid. Sakura, Mami and Sayaka figures are also all sold out on a lot of sites.
I think they're the same but two batches get released.
Maybe even GSC's production or storage capacity is at it's limit with Madoka gear...
>implying they won't delay it
try to find a sumika figma
>that shitty texture on the shoulder
Forgot to attach picture.
Apparently there's a Mami re-release on Archonia but it's not posted anywhere else including GSC
I wouldn't say she is weak, she is the best pilot of the original three but then again I guess anyone would look like a powerhouse compared to Shinji
Oh wow like really...Is this some kind of bad joke? How could Manda fuck up so bad im i missing something? Brazil isnt even close to Europe wtf
Not him but I'm sure he means mentally weak. Her emotions, beliefs and just about everything about her persona is weak. She puts value on herself based on how well she can pilot/how much she's needed.
BR, what are you even talking about?
>paying $120 for a fat figma girl with 2 accessories and a BD that offers 2 episodes of an ultimate shit-tier anime
I don't think it's a waste of money if I can fap to it.
Has anyone used private warehouse shipping on HLJ? I'm kind of confused about the purpose and benefit.
I live in France and tracking says my package is in brazil...
Sorry for your loss, what did you buy?
You can buy stuff and have them hold it for up to 60 days to combine with other stuff that's released later or just to delay shipping for whatever reason.
Maybe contact your local post office? I doubt they can help you directly but they should be able to point you to the people who can.
And some definite anticipated customs & tax rape.
What did you get, Anon?
C85 Kansai Orange doujinshi, not the Kancolle one though.
Around 15k ¥ worth of Tony doujins.
>Losing a doujinshi shippment
Was able to preorder Madoka from HLJ. How lucky of me to find her still up for pre order. None of the other sites had her.
*shipment. Excuse me.
I like that circle. Did they release more than one doujinshi?
I got Senjougahara [used, it'll be interesting how she looks after transport].
And a bunch of expensive Madoka paper merchandise which I know nothing specific about (some signatures, reprints of animation frames, stuff like that).
Except that it is more expensive than Senjougahara.
Best way to buy from Amazon because they count as a single item as far as shipping is concerned.
Why is it lost already?
If it's undeliverable or refused, they'll presumably return it.
It'll just be a months-long round trip.
Oh thank god you corrected it I would've never been able to figure out what you were saying if you hadn't. And fixing your typos certainly makes you look like a clever and responsible poster.
Will try my post office.
Won't the package be sent back to Japan if no one picks it up?
I emailed Manda about this idk what they can do though.
And not fixing typos makes a person look like a moron. Your point?
Looks pretty cheap to me.
Shipping by Air is always a bitch, but it does look cheap, all in all.
Unlikely, but even if it does decrease, it probably won't decrease much. The Nero Saber Figmas still only go for like 2000Y less than the full box sets of their respective games, for example, and Insane Black Rock Shooter only went up. Your best bet is to hope for either an Italian release (some Italian company managed to wrangle the IBRS Figma with their release of the BRS anime, which was like half the price of the Japanese box set) or for factory rejects to end up on Taobao like uniform Madoka. The factory rejects aren't bootlegs and are dirt-cheap, but are usually missing all their accessories.
So who else got their Alleyne delay mails from amiami just now?
> I emailed Manda about this idk what they can do though.
They can send another set after it's clear the package went to the wrong address.
It's probably their damn fault, I can't imagine you entering a Brazilian address.
I also picked that one up as well, but it'll arrive later.
I just didn't feel like deleting the post just to fix it.
>Why is it lost already?
>It's in Brazil
No it doesn't. Everybody understands you made a fucking typo, it's not something uncommon and rare. As long as you don't type constantly like a retard nobody will care, or think you're some sort of irremediable idiot.
You don't need to fix it, that's the point.
>No it doesn't.
Except yes, it does. And it makes you look ignorant if you're not willing to fix it.
Misdirected and currently in Brazil's customs is not "lost".
Maybe the address was correct and the postal service made the mistake, in which case customs will probably refuse the package already.
HUE HUE HUE GIB ME ZENY OR I SEIZE IT
HUE HUE HUE
Didn't order her, but this happened like 8 times for Bayonetta, so... I feel you, I guess?
Ugh. I swear it's like Griffon sculpted it for them.
Thanks anon i wont kill myself tonight atleast.
I felt like a retard and checked if i mistakenly put BR instead of Furansu and i did no mistakes they fucked up.
I see there isn't going to be an end to this. I think making a whole new post just to acknowledged your mistake makes you look like an even bigger idiot. Nobody fucking cares, it's something that happens all the time.
But well, if you're that concerned about looking like an intelligent individual in front of a bunch of anonymous posters then go ahead.
Wasn't even me.
Or they just gave you the wrong tracking number, tell the to get it checked.
This one proxy is just only a 500 yen commission? Why does that feel too good to be true?
Then that's ultimately Manda's problem.
But it sounds unrealistic that they wold do that in this case - they're playing with pretty big dogs (national postal services). I think individual customs officers know they're below them in the food chain...
I want to squish those thighs
I really like the office supplies falling out. It's a really nice accessory to the figure.
What are some good resources for 1/12 scale things like guns and so on? Specifically, I'm trying to kit out my Homura figma with things like M92 pistols and so on. I've had shitty luck googling.
It's a forwarder. They don't do anything but mail stuff and charge you the fee + shipping and probably some sort of PayPal fee over all of it.
Hello, my name is Tony Taka and this is jackass
>Illustrator extraordinaire Tony Taka invited AmiAmi to his ALBION WORKS studio to discuss his figures, career and...
I love it when I get two (or sometimes more) packages in the same day. Sorry for the potato picture though, my phone a shit Also NISA ships surprisingly fast. I ordered Arakawa, Friday, I think? It shipped the next day and was here today, even with their free shipping. Cheaper and faster than Rightstuf by miles, if anybody is planning on buying from them anytime soon. They also have all of 3 sets of Natsume Yuujinchou available as a bundle for about $160, which I think I'll be getting sometime in the near future.
What is it?
Wow he looks like a very mediocre faggot. Would not take effort to overlook him if I walked by him on a street.
Is he married?
Hopefully not, he would have send his wife to Korea to get his trademark sameface after a million surgeries.
Those cases look really nice, but I don't like how he arranged the figures themselves.
Also >that sameface collage
not even a BR but fuck off you mexican piece of shit.
You're just as an annoying shitskin piece of shit as they are, just not as loud
Why does he keep so many figures of the same girl?
Is that his waifu?
So, how many buyfags in this thread is waiting for Saber Alter payment request from amiami?
>naming people who know about what's in the package
He may be pretty autistic, and his friends may be massive faggots, but at least he's got company. No harm done really.
Unless he's using my fucking tax dollars/autism bux to survive.
Amiko is being tsuntsun towards you Noodles.
"Ayy yo, where can I cop this son?" anonymous said with an anonymous accent so no one will figure out he is a buyfag lolicon in disguise.
I like videos like this.
It reminds me that no matter how low I sink, I'll never hit rock bottom like this person.
Are you mentally ill?
More work, less tsun!
I'm not wasting my time watching +12mins of some fat faggot doing weeboo things.
She's not coming till the end of the month with my daki.
Of fucking course.
I've had to move the rest of my collection of her to make space for her, so it annoys me that there's a blank spot waiting and Amico is taking her time.
fug they figured me out. aside from wanting to know where that rin fig came from yes I get autism bucks.
Waiting on Scott-chan ;_;
Why won't he notice me?
Got this last week. Only took a month because of december RSAL/Mandarake.
I bought one and she looks great. Best one imo
Oh, nice! He actually looks really good. Do you have any other Jojo figures?
Still waiting on second-hand stores to carry the homura.
Help I need to make $1027.40 ASAP.

or should i get that nice tharja figure
Pretty sure you need skill for that
good luck, it looks like they are already going for 16k and higher now, used and unopened.
Which one? I'm waiting for a rebellion one. Also I use a guy who buys in BULK from japan to get my stuff for a discount.
Are you female? Male?
Donate eggs or sperm. Gay escort, go for it.
Panhandle in your free time.
If you are female, have an education, and mildly attractive/not obese, consider being surrogate mother to a Chinese couple.
I can vouch for >>100202404, dick sucking is not for amateurs. you need stamina, active saliva glands, and some tricks to spice things up if needed.
You need to be quite skilled to donate sperm.
Give some freebies for practice.
I dunno about you, but generally men who aren't discerning about receiving blowjobs tend to be most likely to have diseases of the venereal type.
Who needs food when you have little plastic girls?
Get the figure.
>Also, you need to have a high school degree or better. The bank I went to required that you at least be enrolled in college, if not already a college graduate. Some banks request that you pursue a graduate degree because they can then charge an extra premium for PhD sperm. If you happen to be from an Ivy League school, even better.
>You generally have to be white, as most sperm recipients are white couples.
>You must be in shape, since who wants a fatty for a kid (and if your fatness isn't genetic, your laziness might be)?
white rice egg nori, fuck clothes thrift store, do odd jobs on craigslist. get figs, son. I am out to collect figures, I am on some wutang shit so protect your fucking neck niggers.
Okay, I am Asian, bachelor's degree in STEM subject, and skinny. How many times do I have to donate to get enough cash for a scale?
If sucking cock is something you will do for dosh you should have been working up that skill since you were younger and probably more attractive. Start sucking now take it anywhere they will put it, swallow, also be open to letting fags piss and shit on you for big bucks. just do it fag no shame as buys fags there is no judgement here.
You've exposed me of not being a professional dick sucker.
You are fucked, they look for white people only in most sperm banks.
BR Lost doujin Anon here Manda replied
"I am sorry here is correct tracking number"
Anon you seem very...knowledgeable about all this.
Just market yourself better and get a job. You can earn that amount in no time.
I'm also a NEET because I have no motivation to leave the basement.
If only she wasn't sold out EVERYWHERE.
I regret not getting it half a year ago.when it was still around 8k.
GSC 1/8, the one that isn't the exclusive. Maybe I'll have some luck with the future Ume version.
You can't even suck dicks if you don't leave your basement, anon.
It's /out/ or no figs.
Can I get an upskirt shot of the new totori? I'm on the fence since I already have the one released last year.
This is fucking genius. $50 - $75 dollars per donation. I've graduated from Higschool, in university and in good shape. Not white but I'm not black so that should be good enough. If I can do this, that would be awesome.
We have probably discussed Jojo before, but I actually took a picture of my collection just yesterday.
An upskirt shouldn't be enough to make a decision when the figure is just so bad. They not only messed up the colors but the sculpt itself.
>Not white but I'm not black
Nobody wants minorities, and you can only donate every couple of months, and that's if someone actually buys your spunk.
As usual, someone at Phat should drop the acid.
What the fuck? What is with the colours on the Atelier figures?
Someone in charge of supplies hasn't calibrated his monitor.
Yeah the family history shit is pretty demoralizing. The whole process is more intensive than an actual job.
So for proxies, do you pay for shipping twice? Once included with your overall payment to get the item to the proxy in the first place and then a second time for the proxy to actually send the item to you?
Probably because its a niche source material that fans always go for no matter the quality. They just scrap something fast and put it on sale.
read the FAQ.
For most, yes.
>fans always go for no matter the quality
Yeah no, even the atelier fans hate Phat's figures.
Except MFC tards, but they eat up anything.
No one mentioned that you don't get paid for six months.
As a fan I'd say the total opposite, the figures are so off that buying them is just an insult. I rather keep Kishida Mel's illustrations and play the games.
Worry not anon, if you buy something from Alter or OS around the time you donate you'll still get pay way before the figure is released.
What do you all think of my new robot? It's diecast
What Eva is that?
I'm a fan and I've bought every figure released so far. It's not like I have a choice, we barely get any merch. If the Eschalogy anime gets shitty figs I'll have to buy them too.
go back to not here.
Oh god I want a Linca figure. Made by ALTER and with this exact facial expression.
My first package of the year. The Shinobu book is really nice.
its Unit 04. it's the one that supposedly exploded when they tried to put an S2 engine in it. It wasn't ever in the series visually but I liked how it looked.
Link to the Shinobu book?
Personally I'm waiting for Bell riding her broom.
Ohhh, I see. Pretty cool.
I bought it at HLJ. Haven't checked if it's available somewhere else.
Fuck I need this
I'm not willing to stain the series I like with shitty merchandise.
Oh wow, that's a really nice collection you have so far.
I still have no idea what the fuck is japan thinking.
Even the Revoltech is better than that old piece of shit. I bet you bought the cheapest version you could find off Ebay or something, and still paid like $70 for it.
HLJ hasn't even billed me for the Shingeki swings and I preordered them months ago. I noticed that they've been released. What's up with that?
Yeah I saw that too, pretty cute. But it seems easy to hand make, just get a clear frame, print out pic of waifu/husbando, and apply some pegs on it for the tilt and glasses.
>Saber Alter in stock
Hurry up amiko!
HLJ gets their shipments later than other stores.
But >>100204939 clearly has them from HLJ
I actually ordered 2 boxes. And only one was charged because they were different orders. I mailed them about it and they said they were out of stock and had to order some more. So it's ok, you should receive your payment order later this month.
piratical buyfag stuff
Y'mean if scott-chan actually even bills me for my order, good god. The swings aren't too popular in Japan. I ordered a full set of 5 for 700 yen from a Japanese seller who ships USAL direct and I might order more & cancel with HLJ if HLJ keeps holding up my November order.
Would fucking buy if it wasn't $17.
Then perhaps you might want to email them? Contrary to popular belief, /a/ is not HLJ customer service.
seventeen too much? for a coat hanger? how poor are you?
Might as well be, HLJ's customer service is pretty shitty and inflexible.
$17 is too much for one hanger though. It's just a picture over a cheap hanger.
He's worth it.
idk it's made out of wood- it's not just some shitty wire hanger
Pretty sure it's printed on wood otherwise it'd be a shitty coat hanger. If it's not I agree that's not worth $17.
Oh, I guess you're right. Still seems too expensive.
I would expect it to come with multiple coat hangers.
It says view count 49. The picture is made of wood and there's the metal pole hanger that's attached to it. If view count is 49, why does it says weight 380g?
open your closet and 12 waifus stare back at you, wearing your clothing
In the previous thread I asked if anybody had asked Mandarake to split a paired item. Just got my order confirmation, "Note :
This product is lot of 2 figures so, we are not able to split."
So there you have it. Don't try to buy an item if it's paired unless you want both. Now I have two Lucianas.
the number now says 56- i don't think that number is how many you get with each order
Why didn't you ask first?
And yes, Japanese stores don't split.
Oops. View count as in how many peple have seen this. Haha. Fucking ridiculous. 17$ for one coat hanger.
Am I the only one spamming F5 to increase view count?
I'd buy this if the face looked more like the old design.
I asked in the order comment box. Pretty dumb in hindsight.
Why not? 2156 views so far.
Anyone have any neat /a/ related coasters?
HAHA Others are doing it now too. Guys, you just need to hold down the F5 key and it'll go berserk in views.
Give the store false hope that it's popular and screw up their algorithm in hopes that the robot orders more of those things in anticipation of demand, only to watch supply go up and demand die like Fractale, resulting in an overstock and price crash.
And about 5 years down the road, an orphan in southeast Asian proudly hangs his only shirt on a cartoon girl hanger before going to bed.
Has anybody else got Revoltech Evolution Eva figs? how do you like them?
So what are the odds of this getting delayed?
I know, I know. I don't particularly care for the series either but the Nendo's cute.
How'd you get those, Yahoo Auctions?
and that way maybe I can buy it for less than 17 bucks
why not get one of a cute girl from a show you actually like then? there's way better waifus out there than Mikasa
>I don't particularly care for the series either.
you really should kill yourself if you really need fot someone else to tell you what to and what not to like
>Trying to fit in
>Actually caring about the vocal minority that tries to fit in hating popúlar things
Also, Nendos are 50/50 chance of getting delayed
Your best bet is to ask on MFC, so that no one will be mean to you.

Well shit, didn't know HLJ stocked them. Gatchapon are one of the things I loved buying when in Japan to the point that I used to have several thousand yen worth of 100 yen coins.
Young padawan, patience have you must
I have these two Idolm@ster keychains that I don't want at all but throwing them into the trash seems like a small waste.
How should I get rid of them? Both are brand-new and unopened.
I don't have any friends who like Idolm@ster in real life to give away to, unfortunately.
I ordered the 3 volumes and the order is being hold back just because of volume 1, I need them for scanlation purposes.
Did not mean to spoiler.
It's the only thing I use HLJ for now, they're the only big store source that consistently takes preorders for a relatively wide range of capsule toys and sell them at a discount (generally 20% off).
oh, that sucks. for everyone.
Birthday gift to a female kid relative.
I'm really sure raw/clean scans are available widely.
I scanlated the first chapter with /a/ ahead of any scan group before my laptop crashed and I lost all files (and the motivation to continue the job).
I like the Nendo, so I'm buying it. I don't really care what series something's from; if I like it I'll buy it.
You guys are going a bit wild with the assumptions here. I'm not trying to fit in with anyone. I said I don't particularly like the series because I don't. I don't DISLIKE it either though. I find it mediocre. I watched the series and didn't regret it, but it's not something I'm all that excited to get more of either. I just happen to like this particular Nendo. I'm not part of some hatebase or any of the other faggotry that goes on around here.
I'm seeing a lot of these rubber straps...I heard they were pretty poor quality? They had a tendency to snap especially at where the rubber hook joins the main part.
Okay. 11337 views. Mission accomplished. Too bad someones about to ruin it.
They aren't actually, we did volume 1 using the chinese public raws (only ones available). But with the mod of a certain chinese Madoka forum going full retard and prohibiting posting raws, we not only will be lacking the raws for the rest of Rebellion, but the primary source of Madoka doujins has been indefinitely cut.
>mfw I just won my grail for less than I ever thought I could get her for
It actually "patience you must have"
Verbs always at the end.
I think you might be getting merchandise types confused. There are some capsule toys that are rubber straps and some rubber straps are capsule toys, but they're not the same thing.
The snapping issue though is legit, since you're dealing with rubber (ATBC-PVC). With exposure and usage, it's natural that it would degrade or become brittle over time and eventually snap. It really depends on how good the quality control was and how well it's taken care of.
I don't have one. The youngest relative I have is 17 years old and a normalfag.
What is it?
Give it to her anyway.
Send them to me.
Or, makeshift anal beads.
I haven't had any problems with mine. I store them in thin, plastic sleeves and open them up once a month to let air circulate. I don't use mine at all since I collect rarer ones.
That's...really awkward. She has no interest in anime except yuri ones. She's in another country to boot.
Don't be ashamed of what you like, anon.
>except yuri ones
Give her my regards.
I wont say since the last time I posted it I got bullied ;_;
He is a god.
/a/ will not win this one, I think.
Aw naw it's bad news, I think it's because she attends an all-girls high school and has developed this huge admiration/crush on some senpai. I don't think her parents know about the second part.
I thought it's available to anyone who orders through the special order form and pays $5000 for the wall?
Has she watched marmite? if not tell her to watch it. It'll help her confess.
Yeah but you have to be in japan for that, and most buyfags are not in nippon.
Wasn't the exhibition over a while ago?
Pretty sure she has.
She also tried Attack on Titan thinking that it'd have a lot of Ymir X Christa moments. It didn't and she was disappointed and dropped the show.
Sakura Trick would be a better recommendation.
Pfft, shes supposed to make up her own shipping moments, like every yurifag.
What about strawberry panic? thats a classic.
I want to believe she's still pure at heart.
At least she has good taste. She sent me photos of her senpai (that she secretly took or by excuses) and the senpai is quite good-looking.
Get her to watch Sakura Trick you faggot.
Nigga pls we both know she masturbates to pictures of her senpai at night. I bet she collects anything that belongs to her and keeps it in a closet as trophies.
I recently ordered the Rei one.
Mari a shit tho
Is she fat and/or ugly?
>you will never attend an all girls school and steal your cute senpai's shirt from her locker while she's doing PE and finger yourself while smelling it
Is it anything like YuruYuri or better/worse? I tried recommending the YuruYuris to my cousin and she said it was too silly and shallow.
Superior demon sisters when?
No, Rei a shit.
The cousin or senpai? Cousin needs to get a better haircut and she has a somewhat pear-shaped body but otherwise fit and not fat. Senpai is pretty hot in a cool feminine sense and "resembles Matsui Jurina from AKB48" according to cousin.
When you buy Panty and some crack for her
sakura trick is even more shallow. the plot consists of excuses for the girls kissing and has little coherence beyond that.
That face needs to go.
>implying it doesn't accurately convey her cockmongler status
So, my yuri manga didn't lie to me then.
one is out but the other isn't
She needs a t-rex shirt.
Does that mean my yaoi doujins might be true, too, then?
nvm found one
but I would like the one from orchid too
No one is going to come to your house and bash your figurines to smithereens or anything unless you don't tell us what it is.
RL probably involves has more body hair though
What is the best proxy for toranoana?
>Tony: My first Shining Tears figure is shockingly inexpensive compared to the average figure today.
Yeah, skipping the marketing bullshit Amiami brings after that, it's shocking, but rather the other way round.
They have pretty much alienated any normal people wanting to get a figure or two, because they like an anime or character.
Instead figs have become hoarder material for people who don't know what to do with their money.
More like collectibles, because of the quality standards we have nowadays. If you want a cheap figure you can still go for trading, prize or small scale ones.
Different markets for different needs.
Can't wait to get my Senjougahara scale and Precure gummy candy this month.
You are just using an euphemism for hoarding.
"Collecting" usually has two kinds with little middle ground. The big collector that keep adding to his collection until every single piece looks like flea shit; and the guy that more or less accidentally gets a single piece and leaves it at that.
Hoarders tend to forget that the most important part of displaying a collection is space. Giving the single item room to breath.
Even the Venus de Milo would look like random garbage in the collections of most people here.
Even if that was the case, you are going by the tangent. Nobody alienated people who want a figure of a character they like, that market still exists and as a matter of fact it's still the one with the largest variety of characters and figures.
A new one was created for the people who want better quality even if it means higher costs.
I made a mistake selecting the shipping on manda, sent them immediately two emails (got invoice with the wrong shipping method), its been 2 days.
Anyone else not getting responses from manda?
i know yesterday was a holiday, but manda works 24/7
Since the only way they can get people to buy the BD is with the figma what are they going to do with the other volumes?
I guess it separates her from Signum an makes this month a bit easier.
>implying Signum won't get delayed too
All I see know when I see this is Aniki's face on them.
I'd like to see a certain cutting board's headswap, for shit and giggles.
Honestly, that's an improvement.
Shit I almost missed this
Sorry this is late but I had this same thing happen to me with Manda this month as well. They'll have to wait until the item gets returned to sender to ship it out to the correct address, the best thing you can do is keep watching the tracking and call the post office to where it is going, as well as the international post office so that way they can intercept and correct it before it gets returned to Japan.
The nendos don't look cute at all. None of the characters are nendo material to begin with.
Pic related on the other hand, I'm hoping doesn't get delayed.
Available else where?
>everything i want is sold out
If you're really desperate, Amazon's your best bet. Tad overpriced though.
Good thing I have a week to pay, since I'm sort of broke. Now, if the USAL shipping is around 1k yen, how terrible would EMS be?
Pay where? Sites like AmiAmi lists shipping costs for everything at payment.
Double or more.
Another faggot who didn't read the guide.
I assumed he wanted the real thing and not a chinese knockoff
>To LOVEru Darkness - Momo Belia Deviluke - 1/6 (Max Factory)
What are your pointers on not getting scammed on MFC? I'm about to buy from someone there and I'm kinda worried they'll just disappear or that they'll ship the figure inside a soft folded paper bag and it'll get rekt.
Don't send the money as a gift.
Don't buy from MFC
Paypal and tracking.
How do I do that? Is simply setting a delivery address enough? PayPal's help seems to imply you only get insurance if you're buying on ebay.
Easy, USAL 980 yen = ~900g, USAL 1080 yen = ~1kg. Look up 900g and 1kg on the EMS price chart.
- Use PayPal
- Do NOT send payment as Gift, choose "Product or Services"
That's about it. Then it falls on the seller to include tracking, etc. If you don't receive anything, you can easily open a case and get your money back.
When you go to the Send Money screen, you'll see the option of checking paying for Products/Services OR Gift (to family/friend). Make sure you select the products/services one.
And yes, make sure your delivery/shipping address is correct.
Does anyone own a figure or other merchandise from a series they've never watched or read or a game they've never played?
An overwhelming amount I would bet.
Yes, I have this random Twinkle Something Something rubber strap that someone handed me at a con one year because the booth sold legit figures and I talked at length with the booth owner about quality. I don't know what to do with it.
Why would I spend money on something I have no personal investment in?
I own two Touhou figures and I've never played the game in my entire life. I also have a few Miku figures to boot
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
Surely wonfes will deliver right?
This WonFes will, I hope so.
A little. At first I was extremely strict with only buying stuff from sources I had seen/watched/played, but I forgot that I'd eventually buy up my "backlog" of figs. And since I mainly focus on backlog watching rather than watching newly airing anime etc, there's really no new figure releases of characters I'm attached to. So, if there's something that I like aesthetically, I'll buy it (which isn't really too often, I mainly buyfag non-fig things now). But if it makes you feel better, I try to watch/read/play the source eventually.
Nope, even when I preorder without playing/seeing I usually go do that before release date and then decide to cancel or not
Like Tharja, played the game recently
Second best girl
I bought a Canaan figma a little while ago despite not having seen the show first. I admit I like Takeuchi's designs quite a bit. That said, I am going to watch it while I wait for it to arrive.
inb4 China before Laura
I might pick this up, it's only like $23 on Amazon, which is pretty cool. It'll be used unfortunately, but it's not worth another $12 to buy it new.
What are you buying anon?
They always make the crane-catcher games extra difficult in stores with anime goods. It's so shifty and you can only possibly win with the games to the front of the store that are used to lure people in.
I remember the times when a show that won't sell that much on Japan could still get a Scale by ALTER and a Figma
It would be good news nonetheless, meaning they are still working on them.
God I want that Wizard Nendo Miku so badly
Only Leonmitchelli's figma because it just looks so good. Plus, I love this axe she comes with.
Still waiting for Sheryl news...
>the nendos don't look cute at all
The Eren and Levi ones don't. But how can you say this is not cute? Shit's downright adorable.
Although this is good quality, I've seen better prize figs of her than this. Am I missing something?
Same here. Preorders are mid-February I think.
A Madoka nendo.
I went ahead to pay, and there was no option to choose goods or services. The most I could do was set an address of choose to leave it blank. I logged into another american paypal account I have and there I have the option of either goods/services or gift. What now? (I can't use the american account since I have since moved and don't have the cards registered in it.)
Momo shipping out the 20th?
Is it really worth it to buy this at all? I have a download of it at 128 kbps, and while I know that the CD would give me much higher quality audio, I wonder if it'll sound at all different. It's VN music composed in like 2003 after all.
Yup I'm convinced Mikasa is getting delayed.
>Changed from January to February 2014:
Good Smile Company - Nendoroid Hibiki Kuze
>We apologise for the extended delay of Nendoroid Hibiki Kuze.
>We wish to ensure he he released with the best possible quality.
Quality post already. I sincerely hope this means GSC realized their mistake with his sleeve cuffs and decided to make them blue after all.
Well, do you want to risk being fucked over? How much do you trust an internet stranger to not run with your money?
No news on Madoka... this worries me.
The seller has 3 positive feedbacks and an account age of over a year. Now I realize that might be just shilling, but I think I'm going to risk it, since it's not a load of money anyway.
Oh, happy day. I've received payment request for Saber Swimsuit.
I'm hoping for a Miku delay.
Anyone else notice that both of these are now in stock?
That face, damnit.
Are you fucking serious? I just preordered from HLJ a few hours ago because amiami was out of stock. How do I cancel with HLJ?
Doesn't look like amiami has the January release one.
Oh man, I went to toranoana yesterday. Do they sell many figurines? I only spotted a couple on their first floor.
That's because they have a weird way of doing multiple batches. Usually they just delete the original listing and put a new one in its place and roll over all the canceled orders into the second wave.
So I shouldn't bother cancelling with HLJ since I pre-ordered their January release one?
If you want the January release, then go ahead and keep the HLJ order.
If you want to save a handful of shekels then cancel it and order from AmiAmi.
This is a foreign term to me. Just one question, why do they have a May and January release? It seems very odd. Even more odd to me is that the earlier release, January, is less expensive.
Jan release is batch 1. May release is batch 2 due to demand.
AmiAmi couldn't negotiate for a lower rate for the second batch. That's it.
Today's package. Dat VA.
>Momo shipping 20th
>Just got the Venus artbook
Good month. Alter needs to hurry up and paint Mikan.
Thanks. It looks like it's about double after all.
>payment request for Saber
>paid AmiAmi a week ago
>still no shipping
This is suffering. Where can I find more info on Kotobukya releases? The product page just says "Jan-2014", but...
Yes! Now only for Madoka's payment!
I can't wait for my family to finally see my collection and be like "What the fuck is this" so I can say"What? This? She's cute, isn't she?" And when they try to touch her proceed to say "Hands off. Do you know how expensive this is? This one was $98, this one was $86, this one $178" etc.. How big of a faggot am I for having this planned?
>Refreshing AmiAmi all night so I can preorder Rebellion BD.
>It never shows up.
If it's not up at this point, it's not going up today, is it?
Disregard the quote, I meant to delete that.
Nope. I had no idea Rebellion BD was coming out for pre-order so early. Except I did because I saw someone discover it earlier in the thread.
Woah, already? Is it really going up this soon?
It sounds like one of my japanese animes.
They announced the (April) release date yesterday I think, so I was expecting it to show up. I thought I had seen it on another site too, so I figured it just hadn't shown up on AmiAmi yet because they were closed yesterday.
They'll get mad if you tell them the real worth because it's wasteful, I always tell my mom my figs "cost like twenny bucks"
Triple the prices, call them all your wife, make sure that you haven't scraped the semen off.
If there's one rule to follow when displaying your disgusting hobby to normal people, it's always undervalue your shit, I don't think I've ever told anyone a figures worth more than 50 bucks
I think it's up on Amazon and Aniplex for now.
As for me, I'm gonna wait for Aniplex USA to release it.
>first time ordering off of Mandarake
>no idea how this shipping is supposed to work
Am I just supposed to gamble on which is cheaper? How does insurance work? Am I just supposed to write "Yes, I want it insured"? Am I supposed to give an amount? How much?
I read the guide, but I can't find anything about this. Sorry for retarded post.
>AmiAmi couldn't negotiate for a lower rate for the second batch. That's it.
No, it's because tax in Japan is higher starting April 1st.
Generally second batch orders are always more expensive on AmiAmi.
You are really retarded.
See the shipping section retard.
Seems BiJ wants additional shipping fees for shiny-thighs Jubei. Expected as much though.
If you're thinking of all the recent second batches, then they're more expensive because they're set for April or later.
Well her box is HUGE.
There should be info on each specific shipping method in it's own section. But for mandarake you have to request stuff in the message box. I usually request for them to reply with the cost of each shipping method, they put their replies in the payment request. And I usually do R-SAL, but they undervalue the items, so if you want the full insurance then you must tell them to mark the full prices of the items for customs.
That's not on the guide? Guys, what's the link to editing it? I could put that blurb next to mandy's link.
Take a guess.
The only second batches I can think of that are more expensive than the first are Mikasa's figma and the new Madoka scale. Eren's figma has two batches and they're the same price. I think Shimakaze's nendo has the same price for both batches too.
Image swap? Frozen was good though.
God damn it Moot.
Nope. I want them to know. I want them to look in surprise and know how serious I am about this shit. I'm confident they'll think of it more like "Wow it must be pretty important and serious to him if he's spending that much on it" instead of the typical "it's a waste stuff" Though I know that will be lingering in their minds.
Well, I don't plan on showing anyone other than family. I'll hide them. If I were to show to anyone other than family, yeah, I would undervalue them. My family, I assume, is more understand though.
Her face looks dumb. I would buy it just to cut off those cute doggies and resell the bitch.
Those fucking faces you guys will have when she looks nothing like this. lol
Why do you say that?
You'll make sad dog more sad.
Just me but I feel like the dogs ruin the figure
Her hair looks puffy and it looks weird on her.
I find it hard for this to be ruined. I find the dogs pretty cute, too. I think she'll look nice next to Olivia.
Damn Nigger, that amazingly high Attack Power.
Will Mandarake ever have USAL as a shipping option?
RSAL cutting out Australia has effectively made Mandy inaccessible to me.
That Armor is beautiful, I bet she has a very high Defense.
So exclusive right?
>All those colors
Knowing D-Arts it's probably awful, but I had to get it just to make sure I wouldn't regret missing it.
I can always sell it for massive profit anyway.
How much are all your grails right now?
This bother me too, but she is gorgeous.
Try contacting them, see what they tell you or read their guide they might have updated something.
Why don't you ask Mandarake? They're the ones who would know best.
Don't have any.. yet.
Furries can leave at any time
I'm pretty sure she's a normal release.
With the tail you couldn't see that perfect little ass.
What's wrong with D-Arts?
where can I order BD?
does she also come with dvd?
Japanese BD is shit ton expensive
Cheap plastic and bad paint. Some are good, like the Pokemon ones, but they're usually pretty average quality.
Nothing, it depends on the line really
Also, there's a Omnimon re-release¡ FUCK BANDAI let me off this ride
I've never bought anything based on nostalgia, but I probably would have bought this if that Diaboromon D-Arts was released.
>tfw you have no nose
Considering how much he was going for I had to snag one.
I don't even like Digimon that much, but going for $200 after market is ridiculous.
>/b/ image macro
just fuck off
I got her to sign a Komugi poster
fucking new captchas.
>That hand position without the popsicle
>That regret of not knowing Momo was shipping the 20th and I could have just EMS'd both.
Nice, I thought I'd have to wait till Wonfes. Getting her definitely.
Also Momo got a release date. 1/20
>Also Momo got a release date. 1/20
Do you not bother reading threads?
I'm pretty jelly. Was it the signing in California?
>going through 480 posts
Thanks, but I'll pass.
Ok, so why didn't you read the post directly above yours? Or ctrl F for momo to see if it's been talked about?
>My post right above yours.
>waiting for mandarake to respond
>That feel when your waifu has no figures at all
>That feel when your waifu only has shitty and/or impossible to get figures
I can't tell which is worse
I would say that the most disappointing thing about that is "that feel"
The first because her existence has no meaning to others except you.
>Trying to police others
Ok sure, next time I'll check the archive before posting anything, and of course futaba, because archive might be outdated. No need to be upset.
You should do the same.
>Ok sure, next time I'll check the archive before posting anything, and of course futaba, because archive might be outdated. No need to be upset.
Well there's no need to put words in my mouth. I said CtrlF. Or read the current thread. Or the post above yours. Basically, have eyes.
>You should do the same.
No I saw it. I just wanted to call you out too.
>that feel when your waifu has exactly one figure.
Feel ok man.
>Your waifu has tons of figs
>All of them look like shit
>Waifu has no figs at all
Nothing but suffering ;_;
>see if it's been talked about?
So you can't talk about it anymore?
Stop making up arguments.
Please stop responding.
It's just funny how people here are still flipping their for nothing.
So apparently I'm even slower than slowpoke. Is there any possible way to still get this? Or at least some possibilities?
I guess it's better than only having one made by Griffon.
Hey guys, Momo finally comes out on the 20th.
Only if you quote properly
So a certain Nipnongnese company sent me an extra fig at no extra charge by accident and now they're asking for it back.
What is the right thing to do?
>what is the right thing to do
give it back unless you hate buying from them. On the other hand, if you weren't stupid and played the idiot, you can just say you only got the one.
Cum it on then send it back
Do the right thing and send it back
Give it back, of course.
I wonder how much will she cost., I really like that design and don't mind those puppies. They look cute.
Send it back if they pay for shipping.
Could they legally charge me for it if I somehow lost the package or it gets damaged/disappeared on its way overseas?
It's their own fuck up that got you the extra fig
No, that becomes the post offices issue
It's their mistake for sending it in the first place.
Well, I ordered one.
hey buyfags, did that Elin doujin ever got posted on sad panda?
Give it back if they cover shipping. Otherwise, keep it. You aren't under any legal obligation to give it back. They might ban you if they're butthurt.
>ever got posted
If anyone cares, Rebellion BD just went up on AmiAmi.
But we're autosaging and on page 8 so like five people are going to see this.
please don't start this shit again
Is this the infamous buy fag thread?
No such thing. Also people that follow these threads will see it.
Sorry it's a bad habit.
What should I buy?
What's a nendo? Sounds gay.
it is very gay
now go away
Are you gay
Buy a lot of plaster
Encase yourself in it
Become a human scale
It doesn't go that well together with International shipping, but I'll take the one without. Thanks Amiko.
I'm not the only one that leaves the tab open with auto update and expand all images, right?
Not too sure about those colors.
Then I could buyfag a buyfag
Who's would be the best buyfig?
0 friends on MFC because I own a Griffon
Your Griffon doesn't allow you to have friends?
I stopped updating my MFC account a long time ago because I just have too much shit.
People also keep spamming me to buy my rare figs
You know you can turn off all the community shit, right?
To be honest I haven't even gone to mfc in over six months.
Really? Did they change it lately?
Now to play the waiting game.
Let's see if in 5 days time they want my shekles for not importing from a British Colony
>all those samfaces
I doubt anyone is supervising Griffon figures.
My mother was impressed with Leviathan's breasts.
>I want you to know that I oversee every stage of the figure from the prototype to the mass production model.
>I make sure that the figures all have that Tony Taka patented Sameface™, the one people have come to know and loved for over a decade, your satisfaction guaranteed.
My mother says I need to stop wasting money on stupid toys and move out.
She drops after I've received something new to take a look. She actually brought a friend of hers the last time since she had told him so much about my collection that he wanted to come see it.
My mother says not to blog on /a/ and she's right.
Wonder if it would sold out.
Your mother would probably be posting on /cm/.
Fucking exclusive. I have the Orchiseed figure already but still.
Your mother probably posts on /x/ too.
Beccause she's fucking stupid
How is that possible when they're both busy taking turns sucking my dick?
My mother is a whore and has herpes.
>still living at home
>not finding a big refrigerator box to live in and displaying your figures on a shopping cart
You don't belong here.
I don't live at home. Like I said, she visits.
I don't care.
I can't afford to move out on my wage, average renting price here is £1,200pcm
I'd rather live at home thanks
Sure you do.
This is why when you move out, you also move away.
>not living in your parent's basement masterrace
Why are you even here?
>Then have to spend the rest in travel getting to and from work
I don't know what country you're from but not every moves out when they turn 18.
It's normally pretty acceptable to live with your parents into your early twenties.
Why do you hate your family, anon?
I agree with you there, don't get me wrong. I'm living with my parents as well at 22, however if you ever have the ambition to move out and can't afford to really do so in that area, it's probably best to move away from where it's expensive and get a new job. This is again, speculation of a perfect scenario which isn't easy in today's day and age, just voicing an option.
I don't, but the less time you see your family, the more valuable it is.
>hassle of moving away
>hassle of finding a new job
I don't know how you think this works anon but most people don't want to change their jobs for the sake of living a lone far away from their local area.
Plus moving away to a new job is a huge commitment.
If it was as easy as that no-one would live at home.
Just to confirm Amazon Japan only ships books, CDs and DVDs internationally right?
For figures, they won't be able to ship it thus I'll have to use forwarding service or something?
Right. But you can check by adding it to your cart and trying to use the address.
lol what the fuck
i was just about to hit "place order"
So the reason that giraffe-tan inflated 3x it's price is katanaah and THIS!?
People sure have shit taste
not supposed to include that link my bad
