Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
NY's new shipping method is retarded, more news at eleven
Well I got lucky. As I was coming home I came into the neighborhood and saw the postman so I asked him for the package and went off. That timing was impeccable.
ARIGATO MAILMAN ONIICHAN
Wheres the wonfes countdown
20days till wonfest
So, where's that yuro anon who thought he was going to avoid getting taxed by using g N-Y 's Super awesome shipping method?
It's still a better option for bigger orders.
>NY magic shipping
>taxes paid on arrival
>changed to taxes paid on ordering
>people eat it all up
You forgot the part where they claim a 10 days or less shipping, when they clearly contradict themselves about it.
The taxed value is already added to the shipping cost, there are no additional charges. Now choose , what's better - pay 5400 for EMS and get taxed, pay 6300, or 5000 and get taxed, or pay ~5500 and avoid additional costs.
Only if you don't mind waiting more. Overall using amiami plus airmail and splitting your orders seems a better option.
And get taxed on each package. Yeah, sounds like a great plan.
Just got the Kill La Kill Limited Blu Ray in the mail today. Somebody asked for some images of what you get in the last thread but I was at work so I couldn't. The sketch/artbook is surprisingly good.
Airmail still has a chance of not getting taxed. Plus you ARE paying taxes for sure by ordering from NY and a shipping method even more expensive than EMS with way slower delivery times.
I don't get taxed with any options if I undervalue, and I can still use RSAL so whatever.
Do you understand the term VAT?
To make it simple for you, add 10% more after price+shipping.
I fucked up and posted the flipside in it's own seperate thread so you will have to make do with 3/4
I hope they make more Dragon Nest figures.
I know, I know, not /a/ related, but fuck.
Thanks for the link, it was veeeeery informative I can't express how much informative it really was. Thanks for it.
4/4 A page in the artbook/sketchbook
Ryuko a qt3.14
None of those include the VAT yet. Which is what they tax you with to begin. Plus you get your packages in less than half the time by choosing EMS
>Spice and Wolf LN 1 and Yotsuba& vol 1-2 just came in
My buyfagging slowly increases
Question, is it really 10%? Just asking since France's VAT is 20%
Depends where you are, I think Britbongistan's is about 20% too
Well, NY is importing to France and then shipping from there. That's why I asked. The obvious should be paying France's VAT.
Either way, N-Y ' s shipping just gets more retarded.
We're getting a painted version soon right?
I still can't get over that torso.
Whoops i forgot that vat differs for each country. You should ask NY directly for that.
I wish you could buy them like this
I think it's the corset not covering the breasts that makes it look so odd.I'll still be getting it though.
It was teased, full pics should be out the day pre-orders go up.
No torso should be that long.
>NY's new shipping method is retarded
What's wrong with it?
It's just the usual anime proportions. Godoka's torso is that long as well.
>Book card/Tosho card
>With waifu on it
Does anybody have one?
It's fooling retards, basically they promise no tax, then they tell you you have to pay taxes beforehand.
They mention fast shipping, then they give you a shipping g condition that immediately crosses the 10 days limit they promise.
It's not "usual". It's a style. Most figurines have normal proportions. Just because one or two have similar proportions, doesn't make it usual or common.
It's elongated, and shouldn't be, but is due to the artist.
I didn't realise Shaun the Sheep was popular in Japan. Even has quite a lot of items under his tag on AmiAmi...
>Monster Monpiece gets localized
>it will be fucking censored
Why, it's like publishing the porn movie but cutting down the sex scenes.
Because it's 2lewd for us wholesome, upstanding Christians.
Only certain cards though. Still bullshit considering it's a card battle game but I'll take it over removing whole gameplay elements because of some lewd.
So does Aniplex only plan on streaming it?
We're living in dark ages.
True, I'd rather have the cards slightly redesigned than getting them removed, but I guess they want to publish it with little to no cost.
where'd ya get it?
Are there any lewd lolis in it, or just big breasted sluts who can't be handled by Kotaku bloggers? I still remember all the mad spawned by Dragons Crown.
Nope, no point in getting a library card.
It is their first venture with in-house publishing of localizations so I can't blame them for trying to be safe but, at the same time, I find it weird that such a risque title will be their first localization. Redesigns of cards would be better than completely removing them though and it's not like the ones possibly removed are THAT much more lewd than the ones still in.
Lots of lewd monster girl lolis.
Mirai fig fucking when?
I would also accept a decent Ryuuko.
On a side note, my November package should finally fucking come in the mail today.
They are removing the furious rubbing, instead you'll have to make cross-shaped movements in the front screen
The same with telephone cards? Because these exclusives are expensive but so tempting, I can have my waifu in my pocket at all times.
What? I thought they said gameplay was intact.
At this point I'm just going to boycott it on principle.
It's the same, you get a pretty (and strangely expensive) card that you have absolutely no use for outside of Japan. I mean if you like it for what it is, go for it, but it's not worth it for me even if it's my waifu.
eBay I normally buy from AmiAmi but my packages from them get charged in customs EVERY time so I bought it off some dude. Brand new and he marked it as worth 2000 yen on the box so it fell under the taxable bracket. Arrived in just 6 days too from Japan to Britbong
Anyone used used this before?
What if they find what i want but i dont like the price will they ban me?
You should be safe, extortion is illegal.
Googled it and some of the design are pretty nice, shame they might get removed.
Maybe some french anon will recognise from where that CB printing originates.
It's early days for a localised BD set of Kill La Kill. Don't they normally release them around a year after Japan?
This one getting hammered for sure.
Damn it, it's yuri.
Meh I imagine having a male MC would be bad.
I'm sad they're removing the cards but I might get it anyway. I heard the gameplay is pretty solid, and I kinda miss good card games on Vita. The free to play title made by Team Japan was a shitty pay2win fest unfortunately.
>Sorimura Youji as a card illustrator
My dick. What kind of monster would take this from us?
Soccer moms and the media's fear of them.
Please kill yourself.
Why isn't there more Cowboy Bebop merch? The recent re-release of the show was a great opportunity to put some stuff out.
Any news from Alter considering Signum's release date? Brace for the delay train?
Does GSC webshop still offer the 2k EMS shipping or did they change it after the latest shipping fiasco?
Do any fellow buyfags have any experience with anime calendars? Most are listed with only 7 pages, which isn't even enough for every month without putting more than 1 month per page. Are the calendars pretty small/useless, or are they good enough for marking due dates, etc.
It's an anime calendar, people mostly buy them for the novelty and pretty pictures. 2 months per page is normal. If the calendar is like B2 or A2 in size, then it should be big enough for marking dates. If it's a tabletop model, keep it for the year-round eye candy.
If you give them money for it you are approving of the censorship. Just import it or play Hearthstone.
They put two months per page, usually as small blocks or just numbers. The calenders themselves are usually pretty big if you get the wall ones, but the spaces for the dates are not. I suppose you could mark them with a dot or something, but as for writing on them, probably not.
Pic related is the bottom of my Jojo calender, to give you an idea of how the dates are set up.
Thanks, pretty much what I needed to know
This is what a page of my 2014 Kantoku calendar looks like. I treat calendars like posters so I don't care about how small the dates themselves are, but from my experience, they wouldn't be good for anything past just circling due dates.
I had a Medaka one last year, it was fucking huge, poster sized.
How is the jojo calendar?
Thinking of getting one since it's cheap on CDJapan.
It's nice. It has Joesph, Caesar, Lisa Lisa, Stroheim, Cars/ACDC/Wham, then Joesph/Caesar/LisaLisa in a car, all in that order.
well shit no site i know of has, thanks anyway
Anyone know if there's scans of this up?
>Being this slow
I'm just here to say I really hate Nippon-Yassan.
In your heart you'll always know it's a re-release.
We all do.
Another reason why you should be importing your games.
>only certain cards so it's fine
>only a little bit of censorship so it's ok
what's wrong with you?
Can't say I have ever had a problem with them, sorry to hear that anon
And this is why I'm refusing to buy Saber Alter Vortigern. Fuck rereleases.
Still waiting for the best version...
Let me guess you're that bootleg Shinofag, hehe.
New C85 shipment arrived.
Just kill me now.
You have a problem anon.
how much did that cost?
I've only got a measly 30-ish doujins. I'm jealous anon, nice haul.
Very roughly $2000.
A man's need to fap is a very dangerous thing.
>mfw my trip to japan and comiket haul cost less than that, and i got other things too
use your money more wisely anon
I like you, anon.
To be clear these areb't all C85. This is the whole collection plus the recent stuff.
No one cares about your shit.
Yeah looking at them I see alot that aren't C85. Was that $2000 for the whole collection then? How much did C85 alone cost you?
Can you honestly look at that picture and say you're not jealous as fuck?
>Senran Kagura Burst gets retail version in Yurop
Stay mad claps.
About $250. Doujin just after a Comiket from good artists tend to be overpriced (because they know collectors like me will pay the inflated prices).
This is the first I'm hearing from this, and looking around it seems that everyone's assuming it's GSC shop exclusive. Haven't used them before, what kind of window do they have on preorders, and how are they about cancellations? I seem to remember reading here and there about them that always made me rather use AmiAmi, if they have her up I'd rather order it off there but I'm not missing out this time.
Yes, since I was physically at C85 and all.
I was planning on buying pic related, any opinion from someonewho has it?
Also I've got a question for you guys, do you know if mandarake and amiami could put a lower price than the one I'm actually paying for, so that I won't get raped by customs?
>only got a 16
At least we don't have to deal with muslims.
Good quality sculpt, though the head is too large for my tastes. It's worth the $70 I paid for it.
I dislike the seam, but I guess it's necessary to take off the skirt. Which is incredibly pointless, but whatever.
My last purchase cost me about that after proxy and shipping fees, but that was only 12 doujins, a daki, and a BD.
So from your trip you managed to build up a collection as good as that while it was also cheaper? Bullshit.
Dakis cost a fuckload, so that isn't a surprise.
She's very nice, no issues to really speak of as far as paint or anything goes. Her fingers aren't as detailed as I would like them to be and her head seems a bit large, but that's about it. She is attached to her base though, so watch out about that when you take her out of the box or youll end up cracking the clear plastic like I did. Luckily it's not that bad and you can't really see it since it's just a tiny bit behind her foot, but had I been less careful it could have easily been a disaster.
$130 for the cover, standard price. Worth it for my waifu though. sage for borderline blogging
i better get a plushie of this japan
You'll be raped by the shipping charges
He's attention whoring, just ignore him unless you want this thread to be filled up with blog posts again.
As the anon with the posted collection: Doujin are really fuckign cheap directly bought from Comiket. Buying through Mandarake and proxies, plus shipping costs (fucking RSAL not being available any more) adds a LOT of money.
No shit bro. I paid $350 at the event itself and got a ton of stuff. Shit's fun, and you can get a lot of doujins for much less money than secondary sellers will charge you for.
You better fap slowly and elegantly.
Oh, thank you guys, I'll get her then. Do you happen to know anything regarding that other questions?
well i just found this on /vg/ why cant i escape you
Same, although I might just go for it because there's not much else I've been interested in lately.
>tfw cant get this fig because parents will think im a pedo
>having figs like this and putting out my loli daki is the sole reason of why needing to move is required
>parents will think im a pedo
And why do you care what they think?
Not your personal blog.
why not this one? I was lucky and got one of here for free.
How about that Rune Factory 4, EU?
How about that Bravely Default, Murrika?
>/a/ - Anime & Manga
/v/ please go.
In about 2 weeks, yes. Although it will probably be censored just like the EU version so that's a no purchase right there!
what do you mean for free?
>what do you mean for free?
he probably meant for Free! so he could add them to his collection with her.
>he probably meant for Free! so he could add them to his collection with her.
You lost me anon.
it is an american joke
Some Jap shop gave me one of here and it was supposed to be sent back because well I refused it. Out of state couldnt recieve shipper supposed to contact UPS to ship back. So now I have two.
It's called sarcasm.
>A softcover book with 52 pages, Moe Headphones Design Guidebook 2013 consists of an in-depth look at 6 designer headphones with illustrations complementing them and reviews done by illustrator Lunatic Joker.
Probably slowpoke but I just found out about this. Hell yeah son I'll back this art book.
>EU vs NA crap
>not knowing glorious japanese and joining the master race
I wanted all the artwork, but no way am I paying $180 for that.
I keep telling myself that I need to learn it, but when I consider that I'm at work all day, then I've got to get back and cook food, then check figure shit/catch up on anime. I really wish I'd put in the effort to learn this when I was younger, there's just no time now.
And then there's those 4 people that paid $500+ for the best package. I'll probably just settle with the regular $20 one.
Slowpoke indeed, that goals been met for a while
Yeah, but $20 for the book isn't that bad.
I know for a fact that AmiAmi won't mark down, Mandarake might if you ask though.
If it helps any, I don't post on /vg/. But I appreciate that you think of me, even when you go to other boards.
>AmiAmi won't mark down
Anyone know why they're such prudes?
I'm on $40, plus $15 shipping because I don't live in the US which gives me one art print.
Already spent $100 on LWA and a shit load more on another project, so I don't have much left to spend.
Wow anon, now that's what I call luck
much want. how much was the whole package, delivery and all?
Why are you so entitled?
Don't blame me for them enabling the jews.
you haunt my dreams yellow
Because it's a crime?
As long as they aren't lewd, I don't mind.
there lewd trust me lots of hand holding
Very Slowpoke, I wish they were doing better headphones but I'll still be getting it.
pls no anon.
you cant escape my love qt3.14
Why are large statues always so ugly?
You haven't seen the Menma one right?
You little slut.
The only exception.
I can and I will.
I don't have to take that from somebody with multiple waifus.
Why pay more to something no one can own
Me too, anon. Think she'll get released by 2015?
Kancolle calendar anon here, I purchased this calendar thinking it was a big one because when placing the order it said "Can only be shipped with other calendars" but, to my surprise, when it arrived it was a mere small box with this inside.
Today I finally placed it at my desk and I got the obvious "Where is it from?" question to which I said "Its a gift from a friend who knows I like videogames" -"Which videogame?"- "Just a random japanese videogame". People walking by stared at it a little but I didn't really give a fuck after I placed it but I couldn't help feeling somewhat shy to display's this week's image which was Yukikaze so I casually censored it by displaying the other side.
you say that now................
Far too little detail for something of that scale.
says the faggot who's had multiple husbandos. You unfaithful hypocrite.
The shop actually sells things other than the official merchandise then. Wish I could go but I don't have any plans to go to Japan within the next 3 months.
What exactly pushes people to blog so hard on an anonymous image board?
Is it just me, or is the AmiAmi website really shitty?
Anon told me to report back ,no promotions for anyone.
That's a question for Yellow.
He's already around here circlejerking. Lets see if he answers.
How new are you?
It's the only place where they'll receive a bit of recognition and something beyond apathy.
Tripshits are another story entirely
>I was told to blog so I'm going to blog
They can just go back to the hugbox where they belong
I've still been around long enough to be confused about people not being more annoyed by it, it's just a really bad site.
S-shut up. It was my fault that happened, and I have no intention of switching again.
That's pretty nice.
Be happy you weren't here before the upgrade.
I fucked your waifu and he loved it.
Oh did you finally dump that shit eating husbando of yours?
It's pretty bad when it compared to other websites but in the end it doesn't matter as they have figures for cheap, process transactions properly and good customer service
Didn't intend to blog, just to stop by to tell you that I own a kancolle calendar and its on my desk.
Which is blogging.
So you intended to blog.
There isn't that much functionally wrong with it though.
It's just designed in typical Jap fashion (i.e. that strange combination of bloat and uselessness that only the Japanese can pull off).
If you want to buy a fig, it's not like you're bashing your head on the keyboard trying to figure out how to buy it. That's all anyone really cares about.
Because talking to friends is fun.
Of course not, I would never.
Anon is referring to Kaiji, who I claimed as my husbando previously, before I found my perfect husbando, of course.
who is it again?
For the love of god, PLEASE scan that Angel Beats doujin.
I have no qualms with AmiAmi as a business, I love collecting figures and will continue to buy from them, I just find their web design choices to be baffling, even when compared to other Japanese sites.
lol so fucking hard @ the guy who bought one off ebay for like 250-350 a few months ago
he must feel like an idiot.
i bet he would rationalize it by saying "she's worth paying that much I don't regret buying her at that price"
You cheated on your previous husbando so you're pretty much guaranteed to cheat again, slut.
$102 at the CR store today, if you want to wait a bit longer and save a few bucks.
All popular figures are like that. I guess GSC Holo/Horo is now going to stand as one the last inflated priced figures.
A shit eater. Yellow take his figure to the toilet with him whenever he takes a dump. Instead of hot gluing him he smears his stool on him.
>acknowledging CR at all
GSC Golden Darkness better not have got a fucking re-release recently.
that didn't really answer my question
Hindsight is 20/20, anon.
What's wrong with CR?
How much is she going for? I know Holo/Horo is going for around $250+ on a good day.
I don't watch auctions for her, but she was 18k yen and above on Mandarake.
In /a/'s opinion, >streaming.
Speaking honestly, the store's legit and you can get some very good GSC, MH and Bandai deals there sometimes.
It's that shit eating penguin thing with the mustache and crown. Claims he likes the human version but really, he wants to get buttfucked by a penguin.
Yes, at the earliest.
There's always Wonfes, so cheer up.
Your shitty stuttering isn't fooling anyone. You're an unfaithful fool and you know it. This also isn't your blog and half the people here aren't your friends. You just reply to everyone.
Even you are my friend anon, even if you don't like it.
The unpaited protoype should be showed on WonFes. The release will probably take a while, though. I'll live, though.
You're just delusional. Keep making excuses to shitpost. Nobody likes you. Not even that thing you call a husbando. He's just as temporary as the last one.
Yeah, but at long as we get a prototype, there's still hope, and I don't think Alter takes too long on their Bakemono's.
Did someone piss in your cereal today, anon?
I pity his current husbando, one day he'll find himself flush down the toilet. He might be happier down the shit hole though.
fuck you anon only i can bully yellow
May the god of cheap plastic hear you. I want a Tsukihi by them, too.
Guys, I'm ordering something from KotoUs for the first time. How is their shipping speed wise?
My husbando is not a thing, nor is he temporary.
You seem to be in a bad mood today though, anon. I hope tomorrow goes better for you.
I haven't ordered from them, but if you're in the US, I can't imagine it would take too long. Maybe a week tops?
My day is going just fine. I'm just tired of coming into threads to see the new figure of the month and seeing you blogging about your fake husband and spoonfeeding everyone who comes in here.
CR is known to have ripped free fansubs and charged people money to watch them. Then when they got "legit", they still never acknowledged the fansubbers and continues to badmouth the very anime industry itself. Its PR staff has been known to publicly tell Funimation and Aniplex to "fuck off".
This is why CR is never invited to industry parties in the US.
>My husbando is not a thing, nor is he temporary.
why would you respond to that? you have nothing to contribute? do you just like to see your name after every other post?
Fuck you, it's interesting blogshit actually related to the product.
Blog shit = blog shit, go do it somewhere else.
First time buyfagging, SAL, AIR, or EMS?
I'm scared as fuck of it going through customs, Burgerland here
since no one else will give me a strait answer i'll ask you who is he?
>I'm scared as fuck of it going through customs, Burgerland here
>people STILL are unable to use google and find out readily available information about what they can import
>people STILL get anxious about things that have nothing iffy about them
just fucking don't order it.
>I'm scared as fuck of it going through customs, Burgerland here
Buying pic related? What could you possibly be scared of?
I can understand being angry if I sometimes derail the threads, but I don't blog about my husbando very often. As for spoonfeeding, I'm sorry I'm not edgy enough to be a completely ass to everybody who comes in here looking for help. As long as they aren't being irritating about it, I see no harm in helping them.
There's a reason why many anons here will recommend that you don't pick or actively look for a husbando or waifu. It's my fault I didn't listen.
SAL or EMS will be fine, America really has nothing to worry about tax-wise, so it all comes down to a matter of how much money you want to spend and how fast you want it to get there.
Beelzebub Yuichi from Yondemasuyo Azazel-san.
I'm getting a preowned Marseille, just nervous.
>sometimes derail the thread
Its much more often than sometimes. You seriously respond to everyone whether you can help them or not. You rarely contribute anything worthwhile. Seriously why do you post?
scared of what i get loli sent to my us PO box all the time and nothing happens
Because it's fun and I like talking to people. I've said that before.
Burgerland is fucking shiawase when it comes to customs.
If you're a poorfag and/or don't care about waiting just go with SAL.
If you can afford it or just want things faster go EMS.
AIR ain't worth it.
I personally go USAL because poorfag and I can wait.
Ok, thanks for reassuring me guys.
Go to a public chatroom, or to someplace else that's meant for smalltalk. This clearly isn't the place for you. You would fit in at MFC or on Tumblr. go join the active chat there. I'm sure they'd welcome someone as flamboyant as you.
Motherfucking pika pika da
When does Shinobu go up?
Well, thanks for trying.
That looks like the most boring thing ever. Jesus christ.
> most boring thing ever
Yeah no, it's Pokemon Snap with tits.
>Pokemon Snap with tits.
Do you have any idea how amazing that sounds?
>Sonico PS3 Game
I don't have enough money for all of them...
>see people shitting over each other about somebody husbando spamming
>telling them to >>>/mal/ or >>>/tumblr/
Do you know there's a huge gap between 4chan and those sites, and there really isn't anything filling it, right? Maybe if somebody made something for those kinds of people, anti-spoonfeeding faggots and bloggers could part ways.
Am I the only one who really doesn't care for sonico outside of her wearing headphones? Why hasn't somebody else abused this? Shit, they could make a headphone ver. of Mio and make bank off that shit.
My wallet is ready. Think they will post a Monogatari Nendo with her?
I've never played Pokemon Snap, but if it's like that, I fail to see the appeal, sorry.
>Am I the only one who really doesn't care for sonico outside of her wearing headphones?
Sonico is the headphones.
>Think they will post a Monogatari Nendo with her?
With Snails and now Snakes, she's the only one left out now. She doesn't have a figma yet either.
I get that, I meant the character. Does she have a separate name or something? I just want other girls or something.
I just don't get why GSC hasn't done this shit earlier. They could be selling 2nd Season variations of girls and I would buy those as well.
The headphones are the real body. Everything else is just a fleshy illusion to trick everyone.
I don't see why'd they post any nendos up when none of them have been shown with a finished and painted prototypes yet.
Sonico is owned by the company Nitroplus and want to whore her out for all that Yen. While Mio is created by a mangaka and won't whore her out as much. It all falls on how much money they want to make off their product.
Pic related at Wonfes?
Yeah, I know.
>GSC hasn't done this shit earlier.
Ironic how they've only just now released Nise figures for the Fire Sisters when the Second Season has already come and gone.
Actually both Alter and Kotobukiya are just as guilty, as they've only now made those Nise Shinobus and that Crab from when she kidnapped Araragi and Nise.
You've done far more derailing this thread than he has, newfag. If anybody should leave it's you.
Honestly, I usually only post about manga or to shittalk Yellow. I'm always lurking. stay mad.
I forgot the wide asses.
"This requires players to rub the girls on the Vita’s screen to help level-up cards. While Idea Factory International did opt to keep this system intact for its western release, it did remove certain Monster Girl cards."
You are mistaken James
And you missed the joke about it being turned into a christian game.
No I got the joke
Jesus christ, I HATE when I find a figure I absolutely must own, but am to late to the party and have to pay 3-4 times its retail value.
A freaking ripoff. This hobby is going to be the death of me.
Then why even reply seriously?
Fucking Bridget and his $180 price tag.
Still bought him though.
How do you sleep with dakimakura?
What if you roll over? Dakimakura is now alone.
You need to learn how to read because those weren't posted by the same person.
>shinobu up tonight
>i work tonight for the first time in a year and a half
FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCKF UCK FUCK FUCN KC UIFN CKSNVOS
It's not as if people spoon all night. Even if I roll over, I'm usually right next to her, with my shoulder touching her.
Has buyfagging making you more self-motivated?
It has made me care more about doing good in college and looking towards the future.
Yet should be obvious once you consider he specifically mentioned cross shaped signs.
Is Shinobu supposed to sell out quickly?
I may pick her up for a friend who is working tonight if that is the case.
I guess it works as an incentive to not get fired and turn into a neet4lyf
I hug my daki every night. But in the event I do roll over, I have 2 on either side of me.
Depends on how many they release, they haven't given any numbers. I'd think it would be a pretty limited release.
Does someone else possibly know about KotoUs shipping speed?
>Let you dick decide if you should preorder it or not
>Fap before you preorder to see if you still want it
WHICH IS IT?!
Fap before, unless you don't care about loosing your subscription to a place.
first the batches arrive 2-3 months after the japanese release, then they ship via USPS/UPS ground which takes an extra week.
A little bit. It makes me more money-conscious if anything.
The second. It's always the second.
Thanks anon, I will pre-order tonight.
If he manages to somehow get a pre-order too, i'll just trade her for someone down the road.
Has your penis ever let you down?
Why has amiami been updating before 9 recently?
What >>100627710 said.
I do have a second pillow still packaged when I move out, so I might be more like >>100627809 when I get my own place.
I think buyfagging has helped me a bit on budgeting. I would be probably downing in several montiors and tech gadgets instead of figures, though.
How much have you guys spent on buyfagging?
I'm going to try to move to another country so I can buyfag properly.
Fuck this 3rd world shithole.
Not really, I'm more lacking in discipline than motivation to do things.
It has made me watch my spending though.
New Year's resolution
i've spent close to 10000 since august
When does it fucking end.
Why is Shinobu exclusive?
>Fap before preordering
>Dick still wants it
I hate this.
You live in Europe?
Should be easy enough.
GSC wants your jewgolds.
GSC is trying to ruin me lately. I just want to have a wallet, GSC. But I love Nendos so much.
>How much have you guys spent on buyfagging?
I'm new at buyfagging, busy with lurking, but so far I've only spent about 100-300$.
Still testing the waters, not really sure how much I'm going to dedicate myself yet.
I cant wait for this figure. Fuck hating bandwagons, she is wonderful.
No, I live in South America. But I'll be trying to move to Europe.
I just want to order rebellion and my mirai keychain ;_;
paypal i hate you.
she'd be more beautiful if you weren't a bandwagoner
but you are
One of the two is bound to get tired first.
>not linking a card to your paypal
When will N-Y update? an hour?
Its something I will just have to live with.
made infinitely easier by puppy hands.
Good luck mate.
The first thing you should do is go straight to the welfare offices, if you choose the right country you could technically survive off of that for the rest of your life.
I hope you die too.
Painfully if possible.
Thanks a bunch. Does stuff that's already been out for awhile that they have in stock come faster?
probably should of gone that route, but they've had me jumping through hoops with my SSN being wrong and shit since the 15th.
I guess I'll set that up sometime soon if I think I can control my spending.
Usually one week
>that superior French everything except the missing coloured pages ;_;
Feels good to be part of the second master race.
It's not nice wishing misery unto others.
What would you're waifu say?
Is that a real cat?
Hahah holy shit.
Gg Anon, gg.
where did you see that?
She's gonna be available on amiami or hlj right?
i fucking dont want to buy from the GSC online store
Why do you have English and French version? I bit much for buyfagging imo
French get Hardbound?
What the fuck is this?
To the kind anon in the previous thread who mentioned that Dark Angel Olivia was still up on HLJ, thank you so much, I would've replied then, but I was asleep
>implying I'm not gonna buy the Japanese version
Re-release is indeed exclusive.
Jews gonna jew
MFC lists her re-release as exclusive. But if it's from the GSC online shop, that should be a good thing, since (I think) she'll be made to order, and therefore won't sell out.
Go to sleep Ammy.
>look at me guise I can buzzword
It still sounds awful.
Cool, glad you managed to catch that.
Just a word of warning in case you don't know, but every shipping estimate I've managed to get puts her at 3,000 JPY+.
go away steinberg
3kY is quite conservative, considering she is 30cm tall and 30cm wide. I'm betting on 4.2kY
started in September, like $500-600ish counting shipping rape.
If she sells out I'm hunting down you're husbando, i've put faith in you yellow
they actually have a limit, and they do say they will close the pre-orders if they go over it (you just need t check their previous figures). Still hoping she will show up on BiJ.
>bit much for buyfagging imo
You know nothing.
Well then just make sure to preorder her tonight, just in case. I said (I think) meaning I wasn't sure.
They do? I didn't know that. But even their Mikasa and stuff didn't sell out iirc, so I think it'll be fine.
What do you guys think Cerberus will run us?
It made want to get a job and quit smoking and friends.
3kY, she's not that big.
Ah, thats good then. Hopefully I can squeeze a few keychains in with her
it was one of the first things i noticed when i first used their site.
It's made me pay a lot more attention to budgeting my money.
1 hour to go right?
I forgot, when does AmiAmi update?
Read the guide
Could just be on there as a disclaimer in case they want to cut it off early, or at any time. They might not have a set cut off line.
I mean, amiami also says that most figures are "For Japanese purchase only." or whatever.
11EST, I think.
MFC is going nuts
Do we have any prices or price estimates on Shinobu re-release?
It's time, baby.
>Today I finally placed it at my desk
I hate you, I hate you so much. This week is Yukikaze too, you know there's no way you can explain that.
>so I casually censored it by displaying the other side
And you completely defeated the point of having a calendar on your desk in the first place.
Just take it home.
Saw that coming from miles away and split my order beforehand.
i wonder when 2chan will have pics
>Tearju will never get a scale
But she is one of the most super interesting characters in the series.
Need to reorganize it, but in the meantime this is my set up.
Empty and gay
I refuse to believe things have gotten this bad.
Are you from the early 2000s?
Nice case, but you really should have posted pictures after you had reorganized it. It looks too empty that way.
Since it's Alter, it will be ready 6-8 months after the projected date.
Alright, Amiami just sent invoice for Momo. Anyone know the box dimensions? Need to know whether it's small enough to be shipped through SAL and have some padding around the box.
If you are that worried just use EMS
>worried about padding
Just go by their quoted price, they use similar padding for pretty much anything that is not a nendo or figma.
Plus, according to their quoted price she is barely at half of the limit of the weight/volume dimensions SAL has.
Nice Yoda Join the Dark side you must
They decimate an entire forest to ensure your package has proper padding.
You think? So you don't really know. Then why do you respond?
I'm well aware that Amiami uses a bunch of paper to pad the figures, but sometimes the figure box would just barely qualify for SAL, leaving less room for the paper.
What do you guys buy to display your figures besides detolfs?
Amiami are not the kind to jam the figure boxes in a cardboard box with little to no padding.
Leave that bullshit to NY and HLJ
Because I'm pretty sure, but I put I think just in case I'm wrong.
Wall mounted floating shelves
I got one of these recently, it's much nicer than a detolf. Was $400 at Costco.
You could have gotten like five detolfs.
That looks pretty classy, but that price, jesus.
How big is that compared to a detolf? Is the glass thicker as well?
Looks nice but I'm really lacking in space, what are the dimensions?
OH SHIT SHINOBU IS UP
Very funny. I'm not interested in her, but that's obviously not true.
What? I dont see it on amiami
It's pretty big, and very tall too. It's also really, really heavy. The small box for the glass shelves alone weighed a ton. I think most of the weight is glass actually. I had to rent a truck to get it home, my cars are too small.
Here's what Amazon had for the dimensions
Why won't you faggots stop> It's never been funny.
Did you read the thread?
She's exclusive to GSC's shop
I should have listened.
I cant find her in the shop.
They already pushed Miku to March though, just ask them for an order split, they will comply quickly.
Now, I want to see that shipping quote of Miku 2020 + Olivia
>Did you read the thread?
Okay no jokes this time
So she is
You guys suck, but I have to admit, you got me good.
Do you guys think she will have trade value?
Looks good, I guess. Do we have a price?
10k before discounts.
What the fuck, I tried to pay for Shinobu and goto to the confirm order and then it just went back to the My Cart page?
The guide doesn't say anything on this, so does anyone know what the best place is to get older plush dolls?
Yeah happened to me once too, went back and went through, guess the site is just shitting itself.
I thought GSC shop charged on release, though? It's asking me for my credit card number or to log into paypal.
Thanks, took forever but I'm glad to get that one.
>Order Dates: Orders can be placed between the 21st January 2014 (Tues) from 12:00JST until the 19th February 2014 (Wed) at 21:00JST.
It's not noon yet. Also, did they drop the price slightly? Strange, I thought they recently increased to offset the tax increase.
Yeah I deleted my post cause right after I look back at my account page and the order was there on my page.
I dunno what happened.
We've gotten so far 4 blazblue (technically 3 I guess.) whores and not best girl.
empty and shit
The price went up. It was 7429 yen back in 2012.
So you paid already?
Eh. Don't trust them after how they fucked up Junko but made it look not-fucked up in the promo pics. Watch her hair be like... almost white or something.
Junk wasn't made by Phat.
Junko wasn't done by the same manufacturer
now all the i am missing is my other shinobu grail
Is that an upcoming release?
Right now it just says, Pending (Credit Card). But yeah... I ordered Sakura Miku from their shop however long ago that was and I think they charge you upfront for orders. I really can't remember for sure.
Your new is oozing
H-hey guys, I'm a first time buyfag. I've been looking at the guide but I still would like some help...
I'm interested in purchasing these two items from amiami. Are they good figures for the characters? I'm buying them for a friend and I don't want to spend more than 100 on these.
I live in America. How much would I be looking at in cost if I wanted these by the end of February?
I'd really appreciate the help.
Ah, you're right. I'd forgotten she wasn't 9,333 like the others.
Has anybody ever been rich enough to comission a custom figure
Maybe we'll see one on Wonfes anon.
Penguin Parade, are you even trying?
Guys. GSC webshop DOES NOT charge upfront. They do a authorization charge or whatever, just to be sure that it's a valid card, but it disappears and then you get charged a week or so before it ships.
JoJo is sold out, however the guide has a shipping estimate chart and google has a yen to usd translation feature. Use those.
Another neko fig, I wants it!
Shit, that's just Dio though. Aigis is still available.
It's a credit hold, basically they don't withdraw the funds but they can;t be used. If paypal then it's a paypal agreement, which basically means they can charge you without noticing you.
Rich enough? yes.
Have I ever been able to find someone who is available for commission? Nope.
Had anyone here watch your box get stuck in postal office 2 or 3 blocks away and it wasn't moving for the last 2 days?
The funds can be used in the meantime actually. My account balance went into the negative a few times even between ordering GSC's Kurisu recolor and the time they actually charged me.
A friend/my old manager commissioned a statue of Death from the Sandman series.
The thing looks absolutely gorgeous, 18 inches tall, he paid close to $500 if I'm not mistaken. But god damn the thing looks beautiful.
Doesn't look like the character (or at least not the art style of the anime or game).
The color palette seems a bit too heavy and garish as well.
I feel bad for him since if im not mistaken she has a few official figures now.
Though I cant feel too bad, i've been searching for a commissioner for years.
The first seller has great feedback and Dio is currently sold out on amiami. I honestly feel more comfortable with ebay too...what do you think?
where do you live?
Why are you doing TinyURLs? Just copy and paste the actual product URLs and you don't need anything after the product codes.
Read the goddamn guide.
He has them all, but none of her existing figures had her with her medieval regalia, when she and Dream meet Hob Galding.
The damn thing is so detailed and skillfully painted that the dress seems real, I wish I'd taken pictures.
I'm pretty happy tonight, my collection is really picky and I was in a bad spot financially when she first came out, so I had to pass her up and I've always been really disappointed about that. I figured a rerelease would happen eventually and I'm glad it finally did.
Now, where's bootleg Shinobu-kun?
A lot of the SAS reissues have QC problems, that Dio being one of the worst.
Also /toy/ is generally a better place for articulated figures
I'm trying to preorder Shinobu from the GSC store but the order never goes through. If I try to use my credit card I get an error message that says I need to try again or contact support. It's probably just my bank refusing overseas transactions, so I try PayPal. But when I select PayPal it gets to the point where it's supposed to redirect me to the PayPal site and it just hangs there for a while and boots me back to the my cart.
Is anybody else having problems? I desperately want to get this preordered but the damn site is fighting me every step of the way.
I was able to make it go through by going to My Account and going to the checkout page from there.
I am having the same problem. Crowded server, maybe.
Just ordered it with PayPal and had no problems.
You now owe GSC for 10 Shinobus.
How much merch do you guys buy per series?
It wouldn't even redirect me to the Paypal page or let me use one of my cards, so I just kept trying different payment methods until one finally went through.
The guy who bought it from N-Y? I remember that he paid like 40k for that figure.
25kY base plus 5kY shipping
Don't worry, they cancel any orders over 3 Shinobus
Im sure you can find dio for 45 or under.
Will they arrest my ass here in california?
I cant find this particular daki anywhere else, not even manda, and the price is pretty standard for dakis too
if they catch you moron
How can you doubt your freedoms?
That's probably a bootleg.
Yeah, might as well buy from a bootleg site for cheaper.
Yes. Not understanding how our customs office works is a serious crime punishable by prison time that can be anywhere from 40 years to life. Loli is fine, though.
I'm here. Overjoyed as fuck. Ordered.
>the price is standard so it totally won't be a bootleg!
Why are there actually people who think like this?
How do I filter sold out items on amiami?
Did you ever get refunded?
Late reply. I only plan on censoring yukikaze and shimakaze.
Yeah. Full refund, I also bought some nendos with that order and even though I specified I didn't need that refunded Paypal gave me the full refund so I got that out of it for free.
Think she'll be up on BiJ?
Meow plushie when?
Mamitas scale when?
Either Queen's Blade character design is getting better or more retarded.
That looks like something straight out of Toriko.
Ente Isla figures when?
I had to press the order button several times before it went through but it just did so I'm pretty happy.
All the Grimoire designs are total garbage
It's not a bootleg
Comes with one of the special editions of the game, from I which I own of the sets. Now it's just sold with a drama CD that's also included in the amazon purchase.
It's pretty legit, yeah
Haha, capture level 4000?
>it's legit because there's a real version of it
do you even know what a bootleg is? are you actually this retarded?
Alice was cute, so are the golden girl(boy).
Leave anon and his illusions alone.
Just went through now, had some trouble when I first tried though. There was probably heavy load when she first went up.
Wise up or get out.
I wouldn't mind hunting her, actually.
When can we expect one that isn't shit? Preferably Satsuki
Wait, are you faggots really forcing it to be a bootleg because it's being sold on amazon?
Like, is there any other argument supporting your shit besides the place where it's being sold?
Finally got it to go through. So do they charge my PayPal immediately or is it when she ships?
I'd fucking love a Satsuki fig. Especially with her in that signature pose with her hands on the pommel of her downturned sword.
So according to MFC this is an exclusive re-release? So does this mean you only can buy it the GSC store?
And now you are moving the goalposts and ignoring what's actually being talked about. Please stop responding.
That would be awesome!
Alter will announce some guaranteed.
>according to MFC
>this entire thread has all the information you need
>can't just read the thread
Wearing Junketsu of course.
It's not i the guide is it? I acn't find it.
I want matching Ryuuko and Satsuki in this pose.
No see, I understand why it might be a bootleg, but I also don't believe it is because the seller is from japan, there's a voice cd available that comes WITH the original version, which is how the original version is sold with.
Well, what arguments do you have? It's sold on amazon? The voice CD is a bootleg too? Fuck off faggot
>Satsuki not transfromed
we need dat ass in all its glory
Ordered this from amiami as a pre-owned item, first time buying anything pre-owned, description said the figure was A ranked, box is B. What should I expect from this? inb4 missing umbrella
>Money is oh so fucking tight right now
>Have a hefty paycheck incoming but not until early Feb
I don't even like the figure. Why is this so hard?
Uhhh...A rank means the item is new in box. Why would you expect anything less than that?
Still shit though, she looks yandere as fuck.
Your not thinking big enough anon. Clearly the next best figure would be lolli satsuki and nonon.
I don't think you can narrow down searches with it, but if you're just looking through figures there's an option to exclude sold out items.
Alternatively, you can add '&s_stockitem=1' to the end of the URL you search and that should remove sold out items for you.
figure A means it's untouched, box B means it can have some damage. I don't know AmiAmi's used policies, as I only get used figs from Manda
I see it now. I filter tripcodes so it didn't pop up when I was scrolling. gomenesai anon.
you don't have to pay until she ships, you know.
You don't have to pay now you know...well, there will be an authorization charge to check if you got the money I guess.
are you fucking retarded you don't have to pay until June. and why order something you don't like?
>I don't even like the figure.
I don't see the problem here. You're not some bandwagoning faggot are you anon?
I know and somehow I love that face, it makes this version sorta unique for some reason
Or maybe all of those sellers bought the voice cd separate, and made a bootleg daki just to sell it at the regular price of a daki + voice cd drama
You know, smartest move ever.
From what I've heard, B rank box means it'll just be bent or something. But the figure itself, including the umbrella, will be in perfect condition.
>Have ~$600 to blow
>Don't want to waste it on overpriced shit
>Still waiting for figures to be released/announced
Am I doing it wrong?
WF is right around the corner
>Zenbu zenbu is out
Why did no one tell me
Nendo is cuter and comes with chocolate.
Depends on how much I like the series and how much said merch costs.
Because it's Shinobu. Even if the eye color is wrong. Even if the expression is out of character. Even if I don't have anywhere good to put it. It's still Shinobu, and if it's in June then I most certainly have the money for it.
Do we have any idea what the order time frame is like? The GSC site says it's open all the way till feb, but I assume it's highly likely to be sold out before then. At least tell me I can procrastinate.
I just ordered the other two after only watching Symphogear a few weeks ago. Glad I ordered Zenbu on time.
It just sold out 2 minutes ago
Not that anon, but you guys are really good at selling me stuff. A figure will shop up that wasn't even on my radar, and somehow I always end up buying it by the end of the thread.
Or maybe I'm just really bad at impulse buys.
>don't like the figure
Are you swimming in money or idiocy?
>do you even know what a bootleg is? are you actually this retarded?
Not that anon but, the keyword in his posts is
>Now it's just sold with a drama CD that's also included in the amazon purchase.
Unless that drama CD is also a bootleg considering the japanese stores selling it, there's a high chance of it being legit.
I'd still probably just make a custom one though
Ah okay so you're not just ordering it because it was popular in hopes of it having resell value. Just do it then, faggot, there are enough people wanting it that it will sell out.
I'm just aiming for 1/8 figures for now, but I'm really interested in getting a few meguca nendos in a near future, also nice display heh, I'm still missing a signboard, being yuropoor is suffering.
>Now it's just sold with a drama CD that's also included in the amazon purchase.
>Unless that drama CD is also a bootleg considering the japanese stores selling it, there's a high chance of it being legit.
>high chance of it being legit
No there isn't, what the fuck
Please explain why there isn't then.
>Know that Kuroneko was the best oreimo
Life is nothing but suffering.
>No there isn't, what the fuck
Yeah, they're totally selling it with the voice CD to make it look legit to shitty gaijin instead of just selling it WITHOUT the drama cd.
Because that's totally what bootleg sellers do right? Give more for your money? Just fuck you dude.
Could be worse. Could be Griffon.
I have a daki for sale. I know it's supposed to come with a CD. I type in "Comes with CD". Idiots think it's real and give me money.
Give me 100% proof it actually WILL come with it. Proof that isn't just words on the internet.
I know there's something wrong, but I can't pinpoint where exactly.
Or that could be her only figures. I don't get why Oreimofags complain so much. There is ONE figure of my waifu and is made by AmiAmi Zero. It's not even her exactly.
Sparkle Caster release tomorrow.
I'm thinking it's best to wait for release on this one. Proto looks good though.
Good pretty great. Better than Junko and Komaeda, I think.
More DR figures when?
Yeah I mean it is Phat. I think I will wait.
>Already spent $600 this month.
Money means nothing to me. Pre-ordering.
Tempted, but I'll see what her price does post-release.
That poor girl. I feel like someone just took Zero's hair and stuck it on her ass.
What are the chances of her going back in stock after release?
Because they're Oreimo fags, that's why. Some of our wives don't even get any figures.
Yeah, I know. I'm kinda glad there is at least one of mine, it's better than nothing.
>Proof that isn't just words on the internet.
Well then I got nothing besides that link in japanese where the guy explains that he got that same daki with the voice CD.
>I know it's supposed to come with a CD. Idiot think it's real and give me money
So what you're saying is, there's not only one seller but 12 from japan doing the same thing?
And you do that on amazon?
Gonna bite the bullet on this one. Haven't been fully convinced by Phat these past couple of months, but I'll be damned if I don't want a Kirigiri fig in my room immediately after release.
I wonder if we'll get any new SEED Destiny figures in the future. Could really used a GEM quality Lunamaria or Stella.
>Well then I got nothing besides that link in japanese where the guy explains that he got that same daki with the voice CD.
He actaully says he bought from that amazon seller? Why would a nip buy from a US seller?
same. Phat's done enough good that I'm willing to take the chance.
>He actually says he bought from that amazon seller?
No, the dakimakura originally comes with the voice CD, that's how it was sold by Lose, you either get the 水着 daki with the voice cd or you get the deluxe edition with the game + daki + different voice dramas
>No, the dakimakura originally comes with the voice CD, that's how it was sold by Lose, you either get the 水着 daki with the voice cd or you get the deluxe edition with the game + daki + different voice dramas
Which I'm aware of. Now show what part of this guarantees that a random seller on amazon isn't selling fake items
But are there any good sukumizu figures of anyone?
This concerns me a bit. Is that how the paint is supposed to look? I mean if the paint sucks on the prototype, how is it going to look on the release?
You guys really complain too much. Disgusting.
It's based on the game artwork, I don't see anything wrong.
I wouldnt say the paint sucks. Its muted like the art style, but all over it seems solid, if not just a bit heavy in color pallet.
I think they're just trying to mimic gradient way her hair is colored in the official art.
I don't spend money on anything, so comparatively speaking 100 bucks of my disposable income is nothing. The only reason I'm even tight on cash right now is because I just transitioned jobs.
That said, I have finally come to the realization that not getting it here doesn't mean I'll never be able to get it. In the worst case scenario I can buy it for $200 in the future. The only thing I'll lose is the opportunity to be the one to take her, brand new, out of the box for the very first time. That's not too important, r-right?
Do you really need to be reminded how Phat's pantjobs turn out?
>Which I'm aware of. Now show what part of this guarantees that a random seller on amazon isn't selling fake items
You'd either have to try the 12 sellers. Besides the fact that they export it from japan, I really don't think they'd include the voice cd with it if they just wanted to sell a bootleg, saving the fact that the voice cd would also be a bootleg too, which is rather unlikely.
Just wait for the goddamn release. You don't have to preorder every single figure to get it.
Maybe, but since it's hand painted it'll look different between production pieces. If it bothers you that much wait until HS gets one and takes shots of the opened figure.
And here we are back at square fucking one.
>Besides the fact that they export it from japan
The ONLY "proof" you have of this, is that they say they do. You have nothing to go on. Why are you being an idiot.
too bad they never released the blue version
I'm not seeing the massive errors/flaws.
The daki also has the correct manufacturer listed. Bootlegers rarely do this because it leads to charge backs and getting kicked off the site they're selling on and it's not worth losing their store to trick a couple extra people.
Why are you even arguing with him? Just let him do what he wants.
Why do you keep replying to him, anon? He obviously doesn't know what he's talking about.
Read the guide, newfag.
Because today is an autistic day. And the thread is almost over so who gives a shit.
>He obviously doesn't know what he's talking about
>obviously all text on the internet is 100% true
>You don't have to preorder every single figure to get it.
You understand nothing.
That's doing too much post (and general lighting) on the promo photos than anything else. You're just being a tit.
>tfw no space for anything but nendos in my detolf anymore
>That's doing too much post (and general lighting) on the promo photos than anything else
Which bring s back us to the main point; the the promo photos that are that retouched look bad, all hope is lost for the final product.
is there any totori figure without horrible paint?
Totori? None, the first one had seam and paint fuckups on the barrel part. And meruru's version is plain horrible.
So what? 12 stores lying about their location, advertising a drama CD just to fuck with your regular gaijin?
That amazon actually just lets you just fake your store location just like this? That they would actually care in posting the drama cd that comes with the original daki just to seem "legit" to your "regular gaijin"?
Come the fuck on dude, if that was a bootleg they wouldnt even put that cd in the first place
No, but at least he's been explaining why it's probably not fake. All you've been spewing is "where is proof that what they're saying is true". Amazon isn't that unsafe. They're not going to say they have a CD and then not send it to you, or use the manufacturer's name. That's too risky.
You're just being unreasonable at this point.
Hope they don't fuck up Caster.
The original point was the paint job. Everyone know promo shots look different than others based on lighting and a whole other host of factors. HS's Totori looks a bit redder than Phat's promos.
Meruru (the exception really) caused a minor shitstorm when the first non-promo shots came out and it super yellow. The actual figure is a part way between that and the original promo.
The promo pics were already bad, the golden details are a mess and the ingrown bondage looks horrible.
I just don't understand why certain companies can get away with making figures that are shit/ low quality. It's not like you are buying prize figures here, you're paying premium price and the people who are should know better than be okay with this.
And yet they keep making figures and apparently people keep buying them.
>Come the fuck on dude, if that was a bootleg they wouldnt even put that cd in the first place
>sell daki for cheap
>sell daki + CD for same price as daki alone
>what is incentive
You're just being retarded anyway. There is never a guarantee with Amazon. Why the hell do you think it's listed as last resort anyway? You don't have a 100% chance of not getting a bootleg, even if you bought directly from Japan.
>explaining why it's not fake
I'm spewing about proof only because he hasn't actually explained why it "probably" isn't. There's no real proof of anything anywhere.
>they're not going to say they have a CD and then not send it to you
>CDs can't be bootlegged
>or use the manufactureer's name
>I just don't understand why certain companies can get away with making figures that are shit/ low quality.
They get away with it because people don't know any better.
Good Smile =/= Good Smile Company
Nice strawman though
She looks great, but i've never bought from that maker before.
Any reason to be nervous?
Oh yeah, sure, heap MORE autism onto this shit. It's close enough and it's essentially the same argument. They're changing the names of the items so that it implies they are that company that's actually making them.
Help my friend out here buyfags, what's the best way to circumvent a site only shipping to Japan? Specifically Bandai's store.
Preying on newfags or people desperate for figures of a series only that company makes figs of
>>or use the manufactureer's name
Why are you assuming those are all bootlegs? GSC has US distribution and some of them are being sold directly from amazon. Are you just assuming anything not sold by amiami or HS is a bootleg?
This is fucking sexy
Giant robot hands on girls is the best
Pretty sure this is how Griffon stays afloat. Feels bad being a screwed over Touhou fan.
Really? I'd think people buying anime figures in the first place are otaku who know this stuff and want their money well invested. I doubt the average Jap person is going out and buying any figures with no idea aside from maybe a One Piece fig.
>I'm spewing about proof only because he hasn't actually explained why it "probably" isn't. There's no real proof of anything anywhere.
Are you fucking serious? Do you honestly believe that they would actually make a voice drama cd just to make a bootleg for a fucking daki?
I'm not sure if at this point you're being retarded or autistic.
If it was just a regular bootleg seller, the guy wouldnt even include the voice drama, why the fuck would they do that? Fucking why would they waste resources in making a bootleg voice drama just to sell you at the regular price?
Holy fucking shit
Giant anything on girls is best
Which Greek god is best god?
Thinking about getting a Hades statue.
It wasn't an exception, Totori Meruru version turned equally glaring. Even when you try to say it's the lighting, it's not the same, usually promo pics can be easily replicated with the right lighting conditions, except in Totori's case the cold colors and warm colors are all over the place when you compare the proto with the final product. If you try to equalize the skin tones you'll notice the rest of the picture gets even more different than the promo and usually it's the total opposite.
And the same goes for Rorona Meruru Ver.

That's just it. People buy this shit even though they know/think it's bad. They don't care as long as they're satisfied with a character they want.
>Do you honestly believe that they would actually make a voice drama cd just to make a bootleg for a fucking daki?
>go to internet
>find torrent of CD
>download to CD
>get label maker
>toss in cheap jewel case
>say there's a CD
>don't include a CD
Ceres is waifu tier
No..no..no. Oh well, still better than griffon.
Fuck greek gods, Loki es best
>Fucking why would they waste resources in making a bootleg voice drama just to sell you at the regular price?
I have run into this scam multiple times with non /a/-related merchandise. I've seen it on both amazon and ebay where the CD was part of a package deal. You get a burned copy with an adhesive label on it. Happens more often than you might think.
Two fallacies one for each.
The first one is a huge fucking hassle and you're implying all of the sellers selling the item did the same thing, doesn't excuse the fact that if you're selling a bootleg, it would be just more simple not to add the CD.
The second fallacy is, if they're not going to send the CD, it would be just fucking easier not to include the picture in the first place, it's just retarded to have that picture, implying that you're selling the product with it, and not having the product.
If you're already doing shit by selling bootlegs, doing either one of those options is either unnecessary, and simply retarded.
Again, good straw man.
You really have no idea what you're talking about.
Well I did, was more looking for things people might've used recently/ can vouch for.
It's like people don't know about the Taiwanese anime OST bootlegs?
No, just take your shit back to /vg/.
And you do? I'm only trying to argue the fact that you're blindly taking someone at their word. What is wrong with you?
They're in there for a reason.
