Super Interesting Buyfag Thread
Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
Well that was difficult
Hmmm, anyone getting her?
>That sad music
>having to wait for stupid sexy Zelos before I can get my Momo
Feels bad, man.
Has anyone gotten her yet?
While adding Shinobu to my list, I saw somebody post probable Wonfes Nendos and saw May'n on there. How do Nendofags feel about that? I personally wanted Atsuko from angela.
I just got these two in the mail from Big Bad Toy Store. I paid a little more than I wanted for them, but Tsubasa is a pain to find, let alone cheap.
Payment requiest for the character goods grab bag just came in and it's 2100 yen SAL for me.
Must be a lot of character goods.
Is this satire? Please tell me this is satire.
I... I don't know what to do... All my orders for this month have been pushed back. what am I suppossed to buy this month that isn't exclusive?
I know pre-ords being pushed back isn't anything new, but this is the first legitimate time in 2 years I MIGHT go 1 month without needing to buy anything.
I want to. For her delicious robotic curves. That version is also superior to the nendo. The nendo is ugly as fuck.
It begin....Koto making Love Live gurls.
Honoka and Umi are already on order. Please do the first years next, Koto.
That fucking finger nail, what the fuck.
Chances are he's one of those weird guys who like to keep one nail big.
>Whenever i see Miku i just go bananas
They made her bewbs too big, otherwise it would've been perfect for it's size class.
I'm beginning to regret it.
It better not be 20 iPhone covers.
I'm tempted to go usal to save four dollars, but I don't know.
As long as Koto keeps their QC in check,this figure will be the start of my swimsuit collection.
>I thought I told you to wait in the van
>check MFC on Zelos date
>late 2014, same with Estelle
>AmiAmi still kings of slacking off on order separation since new site
What the fuck? Should I order Estelle?
>Don't really even know their names
>Always jumps the gun and buys all her figures anyway
I needed a laugh, thanks.
Shit, time to ask them to split it out of my Caster box.
That looks really good, probably my favorite out of the three.
>Not keeping your toenails long
If my socks wouldn't keep snagging onto mine and ripping them off, they'd all be long.
>23,148yen before tax
Learn how to put on pantyhose, then you will be able to conquer the sock.
That's gross as fuck.
Serves fujoshi's right.
I thought buyfags weren't neets and at least had some basic level of hygiene.
Why would being neet be a reason to have bad hygiene? All the time in the world to take care of it.
I hope you hit your pinky onto the side of a coffee table.
Do you want to come over and lotion every nook and cranny?
Sure, I will be video taping it to.
I'm a neet and I cut my nails twice a week.
"Hello and thank you for your email!
All those products are new all you showing us is that the package got damage during the shipping
We do not sell used product
You can open a claim with your post office for damaging your goods.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask us!
Yoann from Nippon-Yasan.com"
Go fuck yourselves, shit went in the package like that and they knew it, shipping package was perfect, and they were well wrapped with another figure being in new condition. Shit is unopened with c grade boxes going in.
are you seriously sperging out over the corner of the box being dented? holy fuck the thing came halfway across the world.
>Still buying from Nippon-Yasan
There's a point where you just want people to keep doing this because you've already warned them enough.
But the COLLECTOR'S VALUE!!!
That looks pretty sealed to me so long as the tape's still there with no leftover hair dryer residue. Unless you find that and are able to take a clear picture, you just got a MINOR FUCKING DENT in the box.
Only for toys would people be so anal about the box more then the figure.
The box's sole purpose is to protect the figure. It looks like it's doin a damn fine job so far.
>not once a day
I cut my nails and skin so much they bleed.
I bought it right when I was reading recent reviews...
It's still sealed, and I might open it, but still, its the pricipal of paying for "new", it needs to be near mint, and the damage was not from shipping, they just know I can't prove it.
NY is probably one of my favorite stores, and I prefer it over BiJ
Never had any problems with them
I'd be willing to do so after I get Momo.
I bet he wants to be famous with 1 million+ views.
For preorders maybe they are fine, but their secondhands need to be marked as such.
The packaging can also be subpar.
>they just know I can't prove it
Actually you can, if the outter box was not dented in the same place that would prove that it wasn;t damaged in translation.
I just realized I have a little over 5000 points saved up so I guess I'll just get this for free.
You paid for the contents, arguing over the box being slightly damaged is just childish. I understand your viewpoint, but that doesn't justify crying over something you never had any control over.
Just enjoy your figure, take it out, and put that box into storage like the rest of us sane people, and never look at that box again.
I'm not paying anything and amiami points can't be redeemed for cash, so how is it not free?
I've been there. They had a ton of bootleg Insane BRS Nendos and Strength figma.
>Someone spouting bullshit on MFC
>Tempted to call them out on it
Heh, 2nd hand.
Do you keep any figures at work?
You spent $5000+ US dollars to obtain that free item. Technically nothing is free, but the loyalty program is in place to reward frequent buyers. So in a sense, both of you are right.
I didn't take pics as I was unpackaging, something I will do in the future, I put the bubblewrapped part aside and broke down the box. Can I take pics of the broken down box or something?
It's the seller's fault and >>100752085 is justified in getting a small, partial refund for the damage even if the damage occurred in-transit. It's the seller's responsibility to prepare the package securely and adequately for the journey, which they failed to do. If that anon opens a case on PayPal about the damage and show evidence that the seller failed to provide sufficient packaging through photos, the anon will win back some of the money.
Guys, guys, guys. This is coming out this month.
Is it going to be good? It's going to be my first figure!
She begs for the glue
To be fair I usually pack my January orders light so I can spend all of my points from last year on it and not have to spend money.
Usually I have more points and more things ordered for January, but last year was a little light and this year looks like it's also going to be a little light.
That's fucking Mandarake tier damage there. Calm the fuck down.
>broken down box
No, that won't. Think of the case from a third-party judge who doesn't know about your hobby. You'll want to put everything back together and demonstrate that the box had barely any protection against a too-small outer packaging box in order to have, say, PayPal rule in your favor.
What is your definition of good?
>Searching amiami in places I have never looked before
>Decide to look at R18
>Look at random onaholes
Please stop. Re-release never.
It got delayed, right?
You haven't seen anything yet.
You could, but they won't believe you. You should always take pics of the box status OR open the box and quickly check the contents when the mailman delivers it.
While I agree it's negligible to a certain extent they are really lacking in correct packaging, someone posted this at MFC, N-Y didn't even bother to add an extra box, that's exactly how Hobby Japan shipped her.
Can people overseas even order Onaholes directly?
There's no hole
How do you masturbate with no hole
Do you just look at it or somethin
Looks like it is made out the material so it would just be tight as fuck
Eh, least it doesn't look like some alien vagoo.
It is not a flexible rubber. It's pretty much plastic.
Well, since it's my first buy, I dunno.
I canceled my Bravely Default pre-order because the statue was so bad, so higher than that.
But it looks pretty much perfect to me.
Best girl when?
You fuck the belly button or between the fat folds, that's how it works with the obese
I don't think you understand what I mean. It will probably have good QC and actually look a lot like the prototype, but I personally don't like the figure itself.
Jesus god, I want to throw up
But he said the packaging was fine, and the other figure's box wasn't damaged.
Yes. Suika, Alice, Aigis Figma. Lion Saber and School Homu Nendoroid. Another Saber trading fig.
I work alone in an office, but maybe I have too many there.
Except mandarake states that there will be box damage, and its cheaper if its bad enough.
N-Y does not do so at all, and just sends whatever they can scrounge up, which is why shipping times are so random for some things.
Probably first if the first years are next.
And by your logic even if it was damaged there wouldn't be a problem at all right? Specially when people already paid 3.7kY of shipping and some of them even got charged an extra 2kY.
The least you could expect for that much is decent packaging, not that kind of bullshit.
>those giant goddamn seams
Oh, well then. Did you major in waste management and human sexuality?
BECAUSE YOU'RE FUCKING TRASH.
And the set is now complete.
Just look at the FREEing mediocrity.
You got burned
It happens to everyone
Deal with it and learn from this experience
Wow, I might have to finally get a swimsuit figure
Why not wear ankle socks before putting on a pantyhose?
Unopened, got her for $60
Now looking for CMs corp Horo.
No, I majored in computer engineering.
Amiami did that shit to me too sent me a fucked up box and said it was because of shipping.
Has to be counterfeit. Where did you find that? I'm so fucking jelly.
This is my problem, I can't claim packaging was bad because it was actually really, really good, like I was surprised because people say how bad it is. It had bubble wrap, paper, and air cushions, and it wasn't too tight.
Then i broke everything down, threw all the packaging away, and was surprised to see damage on what i thought would be undamaged.
I'm not the one who got the damaged box. Just saying that the least NY could do is learn from their mistakes and give back something in return.
>dat uguu face Saber
I have a Fate/Stay Night Saber under my computer monitor. The office ladies don't mind her, the guys think the figure is unusual but nothing to lose their minds over. Pretty Tame.
Me too actually. Well, software engineering. Going for my doctorate.
Gonna wait until it hits the bargain bin.
That price, my sides.
I was thinking about going for my doctorate, but then I got a job for this company in Poland, so now I'm moving there this summer.
I would do the same, but waifu demands preorder.
Why not both, accept the damage but also make N-Y take responsibility like a business should instead of letting them off the hook for their jew?
Ankle socks, were, the socks that kept getting my nails snagged and ripped apart
I've been lucky with everything else, rakuten markets, ami ami, even the two things i got from ebay/amazon were sent undamaged.
You know she will still be in stock/be on mandarake much cheaper new also.
Why not wait?
Didn't every figure in that set that has already been released hit the bargain bin around 50% off?
I believe FREEing started this Yukata line thanks to the popularity of the Beach Queens line.
Don't do it anon, it will surely hit the bin.
If you really want a Japanese company to learn something, then more power to you.
I honestly don't think it's worth the trouble since they tune out the complaints of hundreds of their Japanese customers, so it's probably really easy for them to tune out a foreigner.
Yeah it was fine, except N-Y asked for freaking 5.7kY for SAL Parcel Shipping .
For comparison BiJ asked for 4kY for EMS and added plenty of padding and a second box.
Ok can you guys teach me something? I just discovered the Freezing - Satellizer L. Bridgette Sexy Ver. 1/4 Complete Figure by FREEing, but that was released way back in 2011. How and where do you guys look for older figures for purchase?
What do the girls say about your toys when you invite them over /a/?
Sakura is still high but she will hit it eventually like they all do.
A friend of a friend dumping her in-box collection.
Snag it when he told me about that Horo.
No known report of bootleg GSC Horo yet.
>having a shit waifu
At least she gets figures, but do you really have to buy every little turd that has her face on it?
N-Y is not even Japanese, it's French.
At least get your facts straight.
Also, Amiami, BiJ, HS and HLJ DO give you something back if you prove they fucked up.
The worst I've had was when a friend send me packages. He doesn't understand padding material; he just throws everything into a box, tape it up, and call it good. A figure box came with a crush dent on one edge once and that's it.
>Not loving your waifu enough to get all her figures
I sure wish there was a guide or something that someone could read to learn these things
Usually on Yahoo JP / Rakuten (Global + Japan) / Amazon JP, using the Japanese name.
I guess I understand, since I already do that with my waifu.
0/0 counts, right?
If anything Japanese companies have better customer service than most of the western ones, and they give you a remuneration or helps you getting in contact with the manufacturer when needed.
Shows how much you know about it.
Daaaang...ok. Thank you.
>Thinking getting everything related to your waifu is love
If you know something does not look good but are getting because it is her it is just as bad as not getting a good figure of her.
Wait for the bin.
> N-Y is not even Japanese, it's French.
I'm editing the guide, to add that your friend has counterfeited and sold GSC Horo.
>man with a womanly touch
I know Zone-00 but this is pretty bad. The artist drew a tall and lanky lady and erased the breasts. Also, infinite "Is this Panty?" comments
Damn, that profit. I'm still furious you can't find her anywhere for a reasonable price.
Yeah, but they don't take responsibility of customs nabs it.
Thank you Anon.
But the guy who got the damaged box said that there WAS decent packaging. It's possible the box was damaged before it was packed, or even as it was being packed. But there's not really any way to prove that. And "new" really just means that the figure hasn't been opened, not that there won't be box damage. Still, I agree that getting a small refund would be a nice gesture.
And here I thought no one in Japan used those.
Most Japanese companies learn very quickly that they should not skimp on packaging materials.
The one time when I purchased something from Japan and the package came with a dent, I e-mailed photos and asked if they're willing to do something about it and I promptly received a full refund for both the product + shipping and a thousand apologies that they'll pack better in the future. The store was Etoile.
If that's the case...do you want one?
I was talking about Jubei's box that James posted.
Paying more than 5kY for that is a complete joke.
Can't wait to see how big they manage to make the box and all the crying that will ensue.
More source: Look on MFC (sell offers on the database entry from the figure), google and amazon.com.
They are less often a good source, but after almost 5 years, it's pretty random who still has stocks and who sells at what price...
Isn't it more like French people in Japan and most of their operations are coming out of some hub in Europe?
Japanese are not the only ones who accept their fuckups, I got a really damaged box from Play Asia, it wasn't padded nor cushioned at all, I sent pics and they immediately answered with an apology and refunded me 20 dollars.
N-Y initially started as an only-France store and started shipping worldwide a while after that. Most of their team is in France, they just have the Warehouse in Japan.
i know this is not fig related but wanted to ask if i buy a ps vita on NY and can i choose EMS because fedex is like $50 shipping because NY saying should choose fedex for lithium batteries problem
Oh. Yeah, that was bad. For that price there should definitely be some sort of packaging.
Just don't fight back if it gets seized, shipping batteries to plenty of countries using the federal postal system is still prohibited.
Your an exception to the rule. Whenever you a store realizes a customer spends 70k+ a year on figures, of course they're gonna bend themselves backwards to keep your business with them.
They are incorporated in Japan as 株式会社 Nippon-Yasan.Com
That's also the legal entity you're dealing with. I guess some part of the work is done by french or from france given who they're hiring, but they're a Japanese company as far as you're concerned.
So, I didn't know about this Nippon Yassan site or whatever, is this as good as it looks? reasonable prices, and I don't have to deal with importing and shit?
Still, I get what you're saying.
request to have the battery taken out. Don't take the FedEx custom risk. It'll be cheaper in the long run, AND MUCH more convieneint, to buy an extended battery pack anyways. the 5 hour battery isn't good at all anyways, and you'll just end up buying an aftermarket one anyways.
It was my second order in Play Asia (and the only and last one that included a figure), the previous one amounted for a grand total of 30 bucks.
The least they can do is accept their fuckup if you show them enough evidence.
I come from the future , and I hit the wrong key, eh.
>request to have the battery taken out
The Vita's battery can't be removed that easy, unless he's a retard and is planning to get a 2k.
>buying from play-asia
what's wrong with the new model battery
Cheapest option around for vidya. And got a figure back then since I had a 15 dollars off coupon.
It's just shipping batteries internationally in general. Li-ion get banned and unbanned every few years and generally it's not acceptable.
The problem is with the screen, it was a really bad move to get rid of the OLED and replace it with a LCD.
>Implying having them unscrew the back cover is rocket science to Japanese math wizards
the instructions to do so are in the fucking manual too, under how to dispose of your console Ironically.
>Cheapest option around for vidya
My fucking sides.
Their shipping options are laughable and overpriced, they overprice most of the limited editions, and NY just fucking eat them alive for every DX pack or LEs overall.
GE2 DX pack was 150 there, Symphonia Chronicles is also more than $100, they overprice the gaming accessories (more than $70 for the GE2 kit where you could get it for $30 at amiami)
That place is just all around cancer.
I'm talking about vidya in English, I get my fix of Japanese stuff from Amiami.
Honestly, the AVERAGE person won't even know the difference between OLED and LCD. and the consumer market for the 3DS IS the average person. The Vita wants to tap into that market with a system at the same pricepoint, getting rid of the OLED power consumer improves on battery life AND manufacturer's cost immensely.
No doubt about it, Oled is better, but on a mass production scale, is utter shit to sell at a profit.
Yeah just used the guide and went down the list and the last place was amazon and ebay and they're asking for at least 240 dollars which is double. The cheaper ones seem suspect. Is that a typical markup for this kind of stuff?
>I get my fix of Japanese stuff from Amiami.
Amiami doesn't sell LEs except for first limited editions, and they never sell any DX pack or Chara-Ani/Famitsu LE
That still doesn't excuse its shitty shipping options, and overpriced accessories. Yesasia does the same thing as playasia without overpricing all their shit, and still keeping LEs at a reasonable price.
Not to mention it's the cheapest place to get Totori physical, not that you'd know since you're obviously a pleb
They are reasonable when the internet lack selection like AmiAmi and other retailers.
Either HLJ or Play Asia....now? Fuck em both.
Amiami won't do anything about a box even if it is their fault it's right in the faq.
And I never talked about LEs, nor accesories. Just mentioned it was the cheapest place to get games. I'm not sure why you are so freaking mad though.
Actually they do, once you started a claim they put their counterpart at japanpost, it;s right in the FAQ
>For EMS shipments, if your order has been damaged during shipment, please file a damage report with your local post office. Once you have signed the applicable document and received a copy, please forward a scan of it to us. We will then be able to file for insurance compensation with Japan Post.
>I'm not sure why you are so freaking mad though.
>shilling for play-asia
At least shill for yes asia, and it's still not the cheapest place to get games, as you can get most of them cheaper in NY.
Why would you buy US games there, and why you would support those scalping fucks over at least the more reasonable yesasia is fucking beyond me.
Pieces of shit like you that keep scalpers in business
She looks even better than Rikka, I can't wait.
YesAsia is pretty bad. They scalp pretty hard on magazines and limited edition games. Their shipping is god awful too.
>only good girl Touka never
Play Asia deals with mostly new games, a while ago I got Valkyria Chronicles for 15 dollars from Play Asia when it was 40 at YA and NY doesn't even list it.
it sounds like you're shilling for yesasia to me
Not sure if you are retarded, but I already mentioned that I didn't meant LEs and much less Japanese games.
>scalp on LE of games
Not true, most of the LEs that I bought from there, being zero no kiseki evo and sen no kiseki were at the same retail price.
Pic related was also $10 cheaper than amiami's price, $19.99 vs $30 at amiami with the latter being sold out.
It's shipping is pretty bad, but it's still a lesser evil against play-asia, fucking scalpers pieces of shit.
Please read >>100754685
If you can't even follow such a simple discussion don't even try to.
They're still scalping pieces of shit, and "games" would also include their LE.
Supporting play-asia is almost as bad as supporting Jlist, and if you shit on people for buying shit from J-list you're a fucking hypocrite
That kind of bikini is so hot on washboards.
They were selling The LE Oreimo Happy End for $250 when it was a $100 on amiami . Amiami's also went down to less than $30 for awhile.
$19.99 was for the Sen no kiseki skin, the tapestry came from elsewhere
You will never have your own mami ;_;
>Amiami's also went down to less than $30 for awhile.
Yes-asia probably had low stock on it, as when I bought my sen no kiseki skin, the price rose from $19.99 to more than $30. I'd also guess that it was sold out on amiami.
Play-asia scalps even on pre-orders, with GE2 famitsu pack being $150 from even before release
Not sure how it even compares, when plenty of games YA don't have them in stock and I can get them for 20-25 dollars at PA.
I'm not interested in most LEs nor I preorder games or buy near the release date, since they always go on discount anyway.
Oh that it is
>I'm not interested in most LEs nor I preorder games
I don't give a shit, you support those scalping fucks and shill for them, you're almost as bad as the faggots that buy from j-list
You're honestly shilling much harder than he ever could hope to right now.
So be it. I get my games for cheap and that's all that matters.
>I don't give a shit
You obviously do to get that mad, those crabs in your vagina, you should wash them.
I was just saying that YesAsia scalps too. I've never used Play-Asia and I only used YesAsia once before I found out about better places.
Please don't think lewd thoughts about Mami, thanks.
if only i could get a body pillow locally that isn't 135x50
shiny one right?
I have removed OtaCute from the Guide since it's dead.
I considered writing something negative about N-Y, but I've held off for now.
I don't mind if someone shills for a store that doesn't scalp as bad and in a consistent jew manner.
I have no regrets!
That was the shiny one, yes.
Pic just tangentially related, non shiny one.
I'm sure you don't, you're getting paid to do it after all.
In other words; stop liking what I don't like. Stop using what I don't use, even when they offer better prices in long released items.
Mini-kini is always best on washboard.
Box doesn't look that big
I wonder why I got charged 5.6k for the shipping on motherfucking sal
Oyari's Yayoi scale when?
>anything to do with my personal preferences
Are you pretending to be retarded?
>draw a loli
>call it a milf
The box is huge actually, even then N-Y jewed them, they asked 4.7kY for EMS, and 5.7kY for SAL Parcel.
BiJ's shipping was 4kY and was a magnificent half forest of padding.
>full Oyari idols set never
I've come to the realization that life isn't even worth living.
I hate this guy and his faces so much
yes yes, good goyim
Also, you should say shit like that with your trip james, but I guess you wouldnt since you have no cojones
Was there an artbook released with these pictures?
It's your personal preference to get so fucking mad at someone who gets discounted items from them just because they are cheaper than anywhere else. Now THAT IS retarded.
Sad isn't it.
Well, at least there is still this.
Hope Phat wouldn't fuck it up.
>Now THAT IS retarded.
Yeah, so is supporting scalpers pieces of shit when obviously there are better options out there.
smaller than godoka at least right
Yes, very lewd doujin. Check sadpanda for the scan.
It is my fucking fetish. I wish there was more of it.
I really like the face and proportions but the bow-leggedness is off-putting. Gonna wait for post release pictures.
Yeah, not by much though.
Yep. Preordered the Hibiki and Iori already. Just hope they don't ruin Yayoi with the mouth. I'm surprisingly okay with Hibiki's but it might look worse in person.
>sleeping Kumin fig never
Mention better options for games in English released long ago that ships to non North American non Yuropean countries. Now I'm curious.
Amazon is not an option, neither ebay since shipping is quite expensive from either. YA has a limited stock on that kind of games as well.
>not Oyari Sugu
My heart-boner is maximum.
this is the perfect level of deformation that manages to maintain both cuteness and sexiness.
Time for the bitch tears.
The sculptor is Ryunryuntei and I like that circle's work (GSC Kagamine twins, Rika/Hanyu figures), so as long as the paint job isn't a mess, the final product should be fine.
Welp, thread over.
>using google translate
>Wasted your time learning a dying language
give an example of said games that isn't available at YA, but is available at playasia
>not knowing the main language of your hobbies
How is it not knowing what happiness feels like?
Is this one good?
I need a GOOD Rias scale
Not even once
>The same price as a N64 18 years ago. And after 18 years pass, the N64 continues working. But after 18 years, Benten will be... Old as fuck! Hell, after the first half of their lives humans are old men! Scary!
Not much of a buy fag but bought these while I was in Tokyo for new years. Stayed in Akihabara, figured I'd get some schwag. Shipping was a little expensive, being my carry on... It fit well next to the 6 dildos. Going through customs was fun.
Did not make an effort to position these, not too sure what pose to put them in.
Cool place to shop and neat hobby, though.
Point taken, I'd give you that.
Still doesn't excuse shilling for those jews unless it's your last option, they're just not worth giving your money to
Dying or not, Japanese is the most phonetically pleasing language on Earth.
That said, I'm still not sure kanji is worth it.
I'll ask this again because I didn't get a reply last thread.
I sent a Proxy request email to BiJ for
But I still haven't gotten a reply.
Should I loose hope and go with another proxy service?
I sent that 4 days ago.
Big in Japan has better packaging. Have them declare at 2500JPY or something similar, depending on customs limits in your country.
Real nip doesn't sound that great.
Sugu is fine too.
It's not the last option, it's the cheapest one. Getting a single game from Amazon Shipped to Chile is 30 dollars PLUS they ask for customs charges. Play Asia ships for free and the shipping options are untaxed.
And don't even try to get them locally, they will ask for double that.
Yeah I love the sound of it in voice acting like anime and games but to me real life jap sounds uglier. But I still prefer it to english. I also hate reading stuff in english especially h-manga. Sex dialogue and moans and stuff just sounds/looks so awkward, I can't describe it.
BiJ is not worth using as a proxy, just as a forwarder. Goody Japan would be a better choice for doujin.
That said, they took 3 weeks to give me a solution for a problem I had around Christmas. So the lead times for an answer are ridiculous around these days
Why not just use their forwarding service? You can buy from Toranoana on your own.
"Real" any language doesn't sound great.
Sex dialogue is hilariously terrible regardless of the language you read it in.
>Payment request for Caster
>Payment request for AmiAmi grab bag.
>1,770yen for RSAL
Hope I get something I care about from the lucky bag.
Actually, I kinda like how in japanese they tend to use those cute onomatopoeia to describe sexual acts.
$100 worth of rulers.
Finally up on Amiami
MFC had a price listed, has she gone up for preorder?
>What's this parfom line?
>parfom = phat and ryunryuntei form
What's GSCs angle here? Any nes on the parfom Seibah?
Fuck. Oh well, I'll try with GJ for now.
Yeah I ended up paying 4k after shipping. I impulse bought the first round and I was kind of excited but now I'm almost positive it's going to be a stack of stickers or something. I'll be lucky if I get a keychain and even then I'm sure it'll be a character I hate. Fuck me and my no impulse control.
Shilling as in last option, not everyone lives where it's hard to import shit from.
If someone asks where is the best place to get games, if they are japanese you can count on NY and YA, if they are american you can count on amazon, or maybe YA too.
Only if they have no other option that they should choose playasia, because the reason why i'm getting mad is the same reason anyone would if they saw someone recommending j-list to someone unironically
I like real English a lot better than real Japanese. I like Japanese voice acting more than English though.
Already expected a gamble. Let's see if luck is on our side, or AmiAmi hate us.
And James is from Mexico, pretty much the same applies as far as I'm aware, Play Asia IS actually the best option.
I've seen some people on MFC post theirs and they were really bargain bin stuff, as in, I've seen that stuff sitting for too long in the bargain bin. Out of pretty much every bag, if I got them, I would've only kept a single $5 keychain or two and that's it. The rest were really undesirable stuff.
Which also happens to be the only one, no reason to recommend them for someone not in your circumstances
What's N-Y's response if you ask them for extra padding?
I don't think he even recommended them, if you check the original post he just mentioned them. Actually, if anything all started with play Asia not packaging correctly an order.
You are blowing it up out of proportions.
Surely there are people in here who care about HoiHoi-san models. These things can't be wildly niche and unpopular, right?
Think what I could have done with that $40. I'm really weak to that kind of "total 8k savings!" type thing.
Have you ever thought you were getting too worked up over something incredibly retarded?
I want so bad, not sure I can afford this month though.
They don't reply to most inquiries, actually, they don't even let you change the shipping methods at all.
Would it be a wise investment to begin buyfagging now with the rerelease of Shinobu Doughnut Mountain? Been looking for an excuse to start for a while.
I hope she was delayed because they wanted to fix her face.
Buy this girl now!
>package that I thought was lost for nearly a month finally arrives
It seems god hasn't abandoned me. But in the first place it was just 2 BQs and 2 figmas so it feels a bit anticlimactic. Also, I thought I just was getting school uniform ver. Nanoha, but it actually was the limited edition box of the PSP game minus the actual game. I didn't exactly want the 3 posters, phone case, stickers, towel, cleaner cloth, and booklet but I'll take it.
The only problem is that one of the figma boxes is banged up and dented to hell and back. The Manda box was too so it obviously happened during shipping. My autism is triggered pretty strongly but I just can't work up the motivation to do anything over a single figma. Thankfully it's not visible from the front so I'll just sandwich it between some other boxes so I can't see the sides.
I suppose if I resold everything, I would've broken even, but it's too much effort (listing dozens of little things from random series that I can't even recognize at times). It's just not worth it in the end.
There is no investing in this hobby, besides there's going to be plenty of people selling that figure off when they realise that they only wanted it because it was rare.
Don't you fear the boxes will collapse in on themselves when you stack too high?
No, they're never that heavy. Maybe toppling over, but that's another issue.
Why do I feel like that's just a figure of a crack whore from New Jersey?
With wings anon, don't forget the wings.
>January AmiAmi order is under $300
Holy shit, I can't remember the last time it was this low. I'd say I'm losing interest, but Japan just isn't making merch for the shows I follow anymore.
What the hell are "alerts" on MFC? Some pussy alerted me because I was "abusive and insulting" when I told him to use his brain in a PM
what was wrong with her face?
>too worked up over something incredibly retarded
Oho, do you like seeing people claim that scalpers are "the cheapest option for whatever they are selling" too? Oh then maybe I was
Anything, anyone can use it to report something wrong, offensive, or they don't like.
I've mainly used it to report errors in database entries.
You shouldn't talk to people on MFC. Ever.
They're sensitive bitches.
I told him Griffith has one face plate because Griffith has one face, something a non-retard knows. So am I banned now or what? I'm not used to their culture.
Except that isn't what he said.
You'd still be both overreacting and retarded either way, though.
>Cheapest option around for vidya
He looks like Panty after taking drugs.
You're not banned until the admin or mod says so. Your comment has been alerted, not you the user. It'll probably get deleted.
The thing is it's not a publicly viewable comment, it was a PM. He must be pretty butthurt over such a small comment.
Man, I'm loving my Mainfu scale
Am I the only person who only buys Figma's just for the boxes now? I've moved on almost entirely to scales, but I had bought shelfing for the top of my room to store figma boxes perfectly.
I've only lined 55% of my room, but I haven't really opened any of the figma's I've ordered since Black Gold Saw, I just shove them on the shelf now un-opened.
Hell, If they offered to sell me the empty boxes of the figma's I didn't buy/ missed, I'd probably pay top $ for them in bulk. I'm only missing like 36 from 100-200
Next read his replies, Non LE, non Japanese stuff and mentions of discounted games.
By now you are just making a retard out of yourself.
>Any nes on the parfom Seibah?
That's it, we need a picture of somebody putting a Saber Parfom under an NES when it inevitably comes out.
Now you are ignoring everything else that was said during your bitching.
Can't wait to see how bad Phat fucked this one up. You know it's going to be bad when even the prototype looks like shit.
Let's see how well she "Parforms" under pressure.
Oh, I've never encountered that before. Perhaps the idiot did put the Alert on your user account then. You should be able to see from the Alert message/notification.
Her smile is disgusting
I've been waiting for her since the original photos sprung up from Wonfes. Lost my shit when I came back from classes and saw her up for preorder.
I thought she was never going to happen.
Yes I can so I guess it is. That's not bad though, is it?
Neowing is apart of CDJ but has some different things on there, do they ship outside of Japan also? The main difference is one is in japanese and the other in english right?
>By now you are just making a retard out of yourself.
The only time that play-asia became superior to YA was when long term released games were mentioned or in case that game wasn't available there.
You'd still have to funnel out a little bit more for play-asia to be "the cheapest place for vidya"
I really do hate the MFC community, it feels like the majority of people who post on it are teenage girls or girls who are still at that mentality.
I just go on it to make myself mad.
Does she change her personality when she changes her clothes or something?
Oh, and you must live in a place where amazon is out of reach.
Then, maybe you can support that scalping piece of shit of a store
Send CDJ an email to request an item from Neo to be brought over to the English counterpart. They did it for me which was nice.
Which was mentioned around here
Yet you are still bitching about it.
More like CDJapan is Neowing's international offshoot. They share stock. For international orders, order through CDJapan. If you see something on Neowing but not on CDJapan, e-mail CDJapan and politely ask for them to list it on CDJapan and generally they'll respond in a day.
Apparently so? She looks like she became a huge slut.
I didn't reply but he reported me nonetheless. Heh.
>he called me an autist
Isn't prototype supposed to be... a prototype?
I really hope the actual product will be better.
Pretty sure that exact scenario was set, and you kept with the shitposting.
Make that post backfire, report him.
Should be delicious revenge.
BiJ has fucking slow customer service. They said they're going to change all my RSAL pre-orders to Airmail-reg in early December and they still didn't do shit, even though Dizzy is coming out in 7 days. Messaged them again yesterday, I hope they'll fucking do it this time.
Put an alert for him calling you an autist
It's amazing how a similar hobby divides us rather than unites us. Unlike dick, buyfagging can create powerful divides.
I always go through the blogs and try to find the ones that make me the angriest. I don't understand. Could it be I'm a masochist?
Report him (go to his account page, click on Report). He obviously couldn't understand your sarcasm and called you an autist, which is equivalent of "retard" and I'm sure people have categorized that as bullying in the real world at times.
Check your profile, we can see an alert on it now.
It's the opposite in the figure world, the prototype is the "master copy" and almost always looks better than the mass-produced final product.
Pay more for EMS, dirty gaijin.
Funny, I changed yesterday SAL Parcel to |EMS without a problem, and they shipped the package within 2-3 hours after I paid the corrected invoice. You just can't modify paid orders, which should be obvious as even Ami doesn't allow it.
I used yokatta and bought a lot of stuff a month ago but now they don't answer my e-mail. What the fuck happened? Am I scammed?
Actually depends on the prototype, there isn't just one master, the very first painted prototype is not the same as the one who is used for mass production, the later is a second copy that has to be cut in pieces to correctly model the pegs.
The first colored prototype looks quite bad compared to the final product, while the fist painted proto for production looks the best.
But would that even lead to anything? I don't know what results in a ban, but anything less is a waste of time.
The Alert (but not contents) is public, it's the first thing on the Alert page for now.
It's one thing anon can do if he feels like rightfully wronged.
Or he can just suck it up and calmly explain the situation to a mod/admin if they get around to modding the alert and let it pass.
Beautiful. I hope I manage to snatch one later in May when my budget gets unstuck.
Why the fuck would you pm a random idiot about your opinion?
When a stubborn man meets an idiort...
Something like unstoppable lance meets impenetrable shield or the guy who shot dead another guy at a movie theater because of texting.
There are no winners, only who's the best at cleaning up and getting out of the mess.
I'll Friend you just because of your user avatar and Native. I love P3 and Native.
Does no one know what the fuck is up with Yokatta?
How much are you paying for the shipping for normal 1/8 scale figure?
EMS for 3160yen here.
That's a fucking ripoff. Last year I paid like 2000yen.
Ordered the BD from Amazon.jp
DHL is amazing arrived in two days
Depends on the statue.
Momo was fairly cheap for a 1/6, but there are 1/8 monsters like IBRS/Godoka that hit 4.5kY+
I stopped using them after they fucked up hard with my last order with them... Damaging goods due to their shitty storage methods and over-declaring the value of my goods. That shit got customs to bill me for it. Surprised they didn't fall apart after that round of fuck ups, as I know I wasn't the only one who got screwed over by them.
Will do, thanks.
I liked how he dissed on james for being a shitskin faggot
It seems like a lot of services are guilty of starting off nice and good and then jacking up their rates and screwing over customers a few years down the road after gaining their trust.
I will definitely stop using them. I just want what I already ordered to be shipped now and they don't answer my e-mails.
>This product will be soon in stock
January might turn out to be a good month after all.
I really liked them until they screwed up that particular order. Up-declaring goods is bad enough, but when stuff came in damaged... Yeah they're out. Until then I had really enjoyed doing business with them, they were reasonably fast at replying to emails, and they certainly have some of the best rates around. Unfortunately, right before this order, I recommended them to a friend, who used them for his first deputy service order. Got fucked over hard by Yokatta.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
Koto Senjougahara when?
Just paid 2400yen. EMYES.
Starts shipping tomorrow
Anybody know a way to make soft skirts flatten? I just picked up a used figma Hachikuji and one of her skirt flaps jut out.
Stop being a pleb and buy scales instead
Got this in an order today, not bad for 6 dollars.
Don't have any prize figs, so I have nothing to compare this to, but it's very solid, more so than a few of my scales.
figmas are fun
Stop having fun, fun is not allowed
I have that same shitty clock.
This issue picked my interest.
How many femanons into buyfaggotry?
I have the Rei from this line. It's also very nice.
we're all femanons
Don't encourage blogging
got a question...
has an original-release-from-doujin-manga character ever been turned into figure that you can buy?
No one cares, fuck off with that /soc/ shit
I also got the email.
The Time is Now.
More Chuu2 figs when
>Suddendly Re-stock alert
>Preorders closed again
16 Days until Wonfes.
Hope Never Dies
Aside from Touka hopefully never
but anon, i care.
Well, actually not that much, but it would be nice to have an statistic or something.
I met so much more femanons than anons in real life I started to think that WASPs were'nt a majority here
Still waiting for LATER to deliver...
where can I preorder her? she isnt on amiami
What's this about NY selling bootlegs/used items?
Biginjapan has her.
Amiko wants to prevent you from buying total shit and you should respect her thoughtfulness
Repeating the question from last thread: Does anyone know if Aoyama&Co is a worthwhile site? Because I'm one of those faggots who wants a 3-year-old figma new and unboxed and untouched by filthier hands, it's the only one sans eBay I can get my fig from. (Seems to be okay: located in Japan, positive reviews, non-shit site)
inb4 >guide no, none of the stores in the guide have her and they likely never will except Mandarake
One guy got bootleg Shinobu, but they gave him his money back. Dunno bout the used items, I only use NY for pre-orders.
They sell beat up items as new, and a few times people have received fakes and had complications returning.
They suck in general and are a last resort.
No one has used it, be our guinea pig
Y'know, as long as the box is still sealed, it's new. Just not "collector's grade" new because of box damage, but still new.
Did you tried YJA?
Your money, go for it, lets us know ... hopefully I can get a laugh out of it.
Well, Plamoya restocked on it, the price is similar, but Aoyama has glorious Airmail and with Plamoya I'm stuck between EMS and unreg SAL no RSAL because Poland. Wat do, /a/?
Then it should be stipulated, I'm saying that a "new" item should be almost if not mint.
That's why we have grades, ami ami, and mandarake will state the damage, you know what you are getting into, "new" is supposed to be new.
Blowdry her until its soft. Mold into place.
If the price is similar, then go with Plamoya, stop risking money with someone you don't trust/know, it would be like that N-Y shinobu fag.
Also, check yahoo japan auction, you might be able to get it for cheaper.
A month after dekomori releases. Also 2 prize figure rikkas are coming and trading figs release tomorrow.
I asked them for a proxy order from toranoana once and never got the slightest reply.
>amiko stocks griffon
Everyone else is a shit, companies shouldn't waste their time if it isn't Touka
The other problem is shipping. It's a choice between EMS and unregistered SAL, Aoyama also gives Airmail. Should I just go EMS/Plamoya and have a 100% chance of overpaying for customs or...?
Dekomoron is literally worse than FREEing and Griffon
The character sucks, but the quality might not
Why would you buy a figure of a shit character in the first place
SAL it, if something happens along the way, it would be a divine sign that you were not meant to have it.
Because of shit taste
>would be a divine sign that you were not meant to have it.
but i have a personal attachment to the character and don't really want to lose money via potentially divine means
I just bought my first figure
I like this guy
Did I do good
Or some subhuman gypsy cunt lost it
you did amazing
Who is it anyway?
Deko is second best in the show
And that's what actually happens 99% of the time in Poland. That's why RSAL would be best, but it's dead, so Airmail is the next best choice but it's only in a more obscure shop, so EMS is the only choice but then customsrape and shippingrape (Polish customs managed to scratch a few figs on the way, brand new sealed ones too)
a Yui figma inb4 >Yui >figma >anyone ever having a taste worse than this guy
That would be pillow-chan
Deko is literally the worst girl. She's even worse than hairclip and Rikka
Someday I will get him...someday.
You did bombastic
Yasan isn't Amiami or Mandarake, so grading systems that other sites use is irrelevant. It'd be nice if they DID have a grading system, but it's not exactly required.
Fantastic taste, Now you need to get the SL Killer Queen.
th-thanks I guess
Wrong pillow-chan is best girl.
Is it possible that doujins don't fall under their "figures or hobby-related items" rule for proxy buying? You'd think they would, but they don't exactly define what "hobby-related items" means.
Wow, image switch, meant to post this
Now they'll all be amazed with my silly reaction image
Fuck I forgot about her.
Spank-the-monkey is a hobby. After all, you do it in your spare time.
I don't know but in that case they should have written a reply that they won't do the order because of that rule
Dear Valued Customers,
Thank you for your continued patronage of our store.
At AmiAmi, we strive to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible. In an effort to ensure safe delivery of all orders, beginning February 1, 2014, Unregistered SAL Small Packet orders whose merchandise total is 15,000 JPY or over (not inclusive of shipping costs) will be automatically modified to Registered SAL Small Packet shipment.
We understand that this may cause an inconvenience and kindly ask for your cooperation. Please note that while Unregistered SAL Small Packet will continue to be available for orders under 15,000 JPY, our store reserves the right to modify the shipping method and/or payment method of orders at our discretion.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
Don't worry about it
Ha, didn't notice that someone else noticed. This nigga is gonna shelfwarm, even with that trap amiami is pulling.
That also means USALs will be modified to EMS for Poland, Germany and whatnot.
I love SAL but I would NEVER send stuff worth 15,000 yen via unregistered method in the first place. Actually if it gets close to 10,000 I go ahead and EMS it.
I notice there is a line on the side of her clothes, I guess this mean I can also remove them!
Also about Plamoya.. the only place I do know Plamoya from is The Guide, the only place I do know Aoyama from is The Google. I haven't really ordered with either before, I only know many other /a/nons have went with Plamoya in the past out of desperation.
Rikka best girl
Yes, it makes them sound like a proper dystopian corporation and not some kind of silly search engine.
And so they are.
So, Mu-12 bargain binned, as I expected and repeated she would.
You people who bought her on release must be feelin mighty stupid now, aren't you?
Sometimes people just don't want to wait. I expect Deep Sea Miku to shelfwarm too but I went ahead and preordered regardless.
The shipping costs on her were FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKING ridiculous, her box is as big as Madokami's so expect $40-$50 on shipping alone.
I had her shipped with a bunch of other figures, so I'm really only complaining about the price drop. Not really a big deal though.
What the hell is this?
Looks like a weird half-way thing between a nendo and a figma.
Not sure if want, it's one of my favorite characters but it looks weird.
>Looks like a weird half-way thing between a nendo and a figma.
Who else owns or has also pre-ordered pic related? I'm surprised I never noticed its first release since she's pretty damn cute.
Considering getting Erunoe, too. How fast do these things sell out?
It's a new line of poseable cute figures, meant to compete against Kotobukiya's Cu-poche, Griffon's Nanoricchi, and Wing's S.K. series.
Which company will win?
That's definitively less deformed than a Cu-poche though.
I don't know the last one though.
>pay for order
>realize I chose SAL
Generally fucking fast, I ordered both the second I saw them.
These things were announced the Wonfes after the CuPoche reveal, so I'm thinking GSC felt threatened by Kotobukiya and had one of their consortium cook up something to further dilute the super-deformed figure market
I don't know about the minis but the regular PureNeemos sell out as fast as fucking lightning.
None but nendoroid. Bandai tried out Chibi arts too. None can beat the first. Nendos are cute in their simplicity and playability, semi chibis are just semi good. I expect them to all give up at some point.
Figured as much. Now I'm worried I'll buy the third one just to complete the set, even though I'm not too fond of it.
Not to mention I'm now looking into the 1/12 clothes line they have for them. Guess this is the slope that takes me to dollfaggotry.
Bandai isn't a great figure maker and they're better for mainstream toys and releasing capsule toys, so I can see how they lost out fast.
Cu-Poche seems to have staying power for now and Griffon/Wing haven't release their first Nanoricchi or SK series figures yet. I have some faith in the Phat Company Parfoms because the sculptor is Ryunryuntei, who's pretty good at the craft.
Pretty sure every one of them have a mix of SAO Asuna/Kirito and P3 Aigis planned or up, it'll be interesting to see who succeeds.
You guys think she'll bargain bin? I've been thinking of adding her to my January order because I've got one fucking figure, but I'd rather wait if a further price drop is on the... wait for it... Horizon.
Well I just got her in yesterday, and I think she was worth the full price. Of course, if you only want her because you think she looks cool, you might want to see if she bins.
the bodys are pretty good even if limited articulation
I follow the series, it's not a groundbreaking achievement in Japanese animation but it's alright, something to keep me entertained.
I'll just wait for now, think I'll just add a figma or something to my order so I don't feel sad when I get a box with just one thing inside.
I hope she bargain bin'ed. I could get another one.
What is /a/ opinion on her?
Is shinobu a webstore exclusive or did she just not go up on amiami yet? Also
>dat yukata saber alter
Fucking GSC. Now the debate is whether or not I should just get them both through the webstore because of the flat shipping.
on sale right now from >Crunchyroll
for 62$ seems like a good deal for anyone in the US that wants to order her.
She's cheap if you consider 2014 prices and shipping costs 2000.
what's the catch here?
nippon yasan would be cheaper for shipping
While that's true, she seems to be going for a lot cheaper through other stores, somehow.
Do you own any other AGP IS?
Laura and Rin are on their way as we speak. I had given up on Houki, but found her at Frank and Sons and had to get her.
its their "Deal of the day" so if you want her for 62$ you have to order today also
>Estimated arrival: Jul-31 2014
I'm still waiting on them for my Tohka Nendoroid
Woah Frank and Son. Haven't been there in a while. Wasn't it expensive there?
>Estimated arrival: Jul-31 2014
So basically the re release.
A complete box of Nendo Petite Miku Selection for 4900 yen + shipping, is it a good deal? 12 figures in set.
Usually things tend to be expensive there (as you should know), but I got her at 10$ extra, which would be the amount I would have paid for shipping, well a bit more, but you get the point.
I also managed to get Koto Kuroneko (Sweet Lolita) for a bit lower than what it would have cost me to have it shipped here.
they dont work with bootlegs then? Safe purchase?
Safe if you don't mind getting delayed and giving money to a shitty company.
What shop do you get authentic figures? Only know of that one shop in a metal cage.
are the pre-orders pre-paid or do you pay at release date? last question just so i can finally order her
The caged one has pretty good stuff every now and then (They have DAL Origami and Strike Witches) and the stand in front of the video game stand (the one with the we buy ps2s sign) has figures every now and then (there is a madoka figma there right now) and there are two others that occasionally have good figures. Bought a Tsukasa at one of them and Kuroneko at the other. You just have to look around.
Everybody has owned or known someone who has owned that clock before.
With my Akari and Kyouko in my living room.
Man I have that clock right next to me, I've had it for at least 10 years now
Different anon, but after looking at their FAQ, it seems that they require upfront payment.
>different subs than before
Why'd you take a new photo?
Okay, I'm still not sure if I should go for Plamoya or the Aoyama shop. It's essentially a question of USAL vs Airmail vs EMS.
Cheap prize figure, I wanted a biri biri
I recall there being a reason for it, but I can't recall.
Why the fucks you have DVD
I just do, I don't even own any dvds.
that nail is so thin he doesn't even have the excuse of playing guitar, it would break doing that
what the fuck indeed
Surprised people still have this clock
those would rip the hose for sure
waste of money
oH I see, do as u please
Pantyhose are only meant to be used a few times. They wear out fucking fast.
Is this a good kit for starters? I have never assembled a plastic kit before and want to start at some point, and this one is prepainted so I thought it'd be a good start.
It'll be super tedious, but it should be fine. Also, most mecha kits are prepainted. You might actually be hard pressed to find one that isn't.
Why? Because of the impact boosters?
Because not only do model kits take time to put together, but the VVV ones in particular can be quite finicky. And yes, the impact boosters will only make it more tedious.
I have built the non impact version. Building it isn't too hard, just follow the instructions. The tedious bit was putting all ~70 of the stickers on. Make sure you get yourself a nice pair of plastic clippers and a hobby knife before you build it.
Come, jump on the bandwagon. Everyone is welcome.
It's a story from Nishio Ishin with some extra stuff.
Those aren't the QuesQ scales right?
If it's a competent company bought as fuck
>QuesQ and now PP
It's suffering being best girls huh
Penguin Parade desu yo.
Do you know if the Amakuni Mutsu listed on MFC is just an error because the only Amakuni announcement I can find on that page is their fig of the biggest slut in the entire franchise (Iku)
The biggest slut is a destroyer, subs are pure.
Was super tempted by new Aigis. Already have the Nendo preordered but I might just wait for the inevitable Cu Poche. I own Dark Magician Girl and I think the quality and everything about Cu Poche is pretty great,
The other subs are pure. Iku isn't. By a longshot. She's more of a dirty slut than Shitmakaze and that's saying something.
All that bullshit.
You're only convincing yourself
Kisaragi is the sluttiest, literally.
You are only talking about yourself.
>being this delusional
As expected of someone with such atrocious taste
