Read the guide before asking any newbie questions.
Where the hell is this?
If I want to get an image printed, should I crop it? Or does it look better with the original resolution?
How is crunchyroll? I've never bought anything from them before.
Totally not Hiei.
Ordered my Yoshino.
Reading Pooper ordering max again is making me cringe though.
So many company jumping on Kantai bandwagon.
Ignoring Arpeggio of Blue Steel..sigh
I'm still debating it as I have no orders for May. Might get it after release, I doubt there'll be shortage of stock anyway.
You say it like it's a bad thing.
Fubuki scale pls
I know this may not be the best place to ask and the guide doesn't really cover much on this subject.
So I'll just ask hoping someone here has made a similar purchase.
I'm looking for works by Takato Yamamoto, specifcally "Rib Of A Hermaphrodite" and "Divertimento for a Martyr". Both are for sale on my countries Amazon but I was wondering if anyone uses a specific site/proxy for purchasing books like those
>look at Japanese stores
>pay $95 for a $55 fig with shipping at customs
>look at EU stores
>$55 for the fig, good
>$40 for shipping to Poland
>the fig was originally $30 but it's long sold out
Holy fuck. I might had gotten it too if it was 10,000 yen less. 1/7 scale or not.
But my Shinobu nendo...
Because it's Kirishima.
I had removed her existence from my head, but that pose indeed is hers.
Fuck this shit why do they have to jew the price.
i hope it bargain bins one day ; _ ;
That's what I want to know. I didn't think ZONE-00 was some crazy popular manga either.
More pics here
I'm so on the fence about this. The detail, the helmet, the donut - It's a nice figure. But I just don't want to deal with GoodSmile again. Part of me wants to risk it with aftermarket, part of me just wants to secure here. Buyfag lyf.
Cool. Real cool.
Wait for Alter.
>But I just don't want to deal with GoodSmile again.
Is that doughnut magnetic?
I don't know yet. I preordered Kuroko through them, but I had no idea how they are past that.
Nothing like a semi-automatic for figma.
I hope it comes with a little Shinobu half a head to lurk in his shadow.
Good Smile Online have issues. Plus their shipping is usually shit if you're just buying one item. It'll probably end up being nearly $100AUD all up. Plus last time I dealt with Good Smile they fucked up nearly everything possible.
Alternate faceplate. Good Smile haven't caught on with the magnet thing yet.
Is it cast-off? Make it happen, Amakuni.
Who's on the left?
Homucifer majestic figure fucking when
Is it just me or is the shinobu figure significantly cheaper to buy from crunchyroll opposed to from gsc?
I heard they changed their shipping crap after their last fiasco and are gonna ship directly from Japan now.
Yeah, after the Snow Miku thing they started making changes. Finally. Will that impact the price at all?
Not that it matters. Because I'm pretty sure they do 2K flatrate shipping iirc. Which, like I said, it pretty shit when you're only buying one thing.
Any chance this can be released even though it was canceled? ._.
Maybe if Flowers will be popular. no it won't
>An Im@s Figma
>We'll never get a Araragi scale with a Shinobu as his shadow like that Tsukiko
She hasn't even gotten a figma yet on figures, just like Araragi hasn't gotten a scale too.
nendo petites don't count.
Also Tsubasa is getting a nendo, I hope she has a tail otherwise it's shit.
Legit Araragi figure ever? Cause this one is dumb.
I don't buyfag often, but I really want the Chris nendo. However, it seems really pricey for a nendo, is she worth it?
It's shit anyway.
>No Shinobu nendo
>No Shinobu figma
SHE'S THE ONLY ONE LEFT NOW.
Pricey because of all the weapons she has.
She's got a petit!
And the kaiyodo trading fig of the scale is commando.
Someday anon, maybe we'll get one when Kizu airs
We're missing corpse now
God, when I get my Casca figma, it's gonna make my autism flare cause the box will be different from Guts & Griffith's.
What should I do with the extra one
>Forgetting best "girl"
Aren't they all out of stock already?
Not updated since I didn't want to buy it.
I'd give soul for that. Mother fucking Corpse and Snail together on my desk. Perfect.
The only solution is killing yourself.
Send it to me.
Give it to your mom for a present.
Wrap it around your dick. I dunno use your imagination.
All figure manufactures are still stuck on making Nise figures. It'll be a while before anyone from Season 2 shows up.
I'd buy anything with corpse, I say with a pointed look.
>decent Muramasa fig
Is this dream? Bye bye Wing.
>Takara Tomy A.R.T.S
I figured those might be the reasons, especially the weapons and her gear. Still, around $15 more than the average nendo.
Still there as far as I know.
How many days until Wonfes?
It'll hit the bin, wait.
>negotiating with terrorists
gimme my bits of plastic already ;_;
Megahobby just shipped out Kurokok.
Now wait until parcelforce charges you 30 quid for you to come down to their warehouse and pick up the parcel yourself.
Let's be honest here, there was no one this was gonna be less than 10k.
I can't believe I preordered him.
It's June, I already have one Saber in June as well as Cerberus so I'll just wait
Let's be honest. Max Factory knows fujoshi is loaded. Look at all the branded shoes and bags they can afford.
Hajime from Saki
I hate dealing with those bastards. Registered Airmail at every opportunity.
That is why you never use EMS unless they undervalue.
She better not wearing pantsu.
Better than being a loser neet.
3rd tank fairy coming right up.
He said 10k less, not less than 10k.
The real losers are the retards who throw money at them.
She's better than Shitnobu.
>Lurk buyfag threads
>Don't have money or a job
>Tempted to get a job to buyfag and get this.
I really want him, I also need to dump the manga on /a/.
How much of the manga is translated? I heard Tokyopop picked it up but you know they died and all... has anyone picked it up again since then>
Somehow, Phat managed to make her creepier.
>Caster payment send.
Now to wait...
Just as expected.
What's the point of a cat girl if she has no tail?
You can save until july, no problem.
Is GE2 Version Limited?
Since GEB gunform version is limited. I kinda digging the battle damaged Godark
Oh well, that's what happen when they blew it up.
At least there is still a fluffy tail to look forward to.
Only four volumes, I have the first three perhaps one day if I can find it I'll get the fourth. I plan to buy the manga over in jap, so at the moment I have no problem debinding my english versions.
The manga is omipandering I suppose if I had to give it a category.
There are chicks/lolis/shotas/robots/incest/demons/Tokyopop translations/etc
I didn't know that this was popular enough to earn a figure.
I suppose I should start hunting now.
June, where are you?
Forgot the pic
>Alter just decided to release Dizzy now
>Atler hasn't started on Bridget, Millia, and May yet.
Where the fuck do you live where it costs $95 to ship a figure?
A bit underwhelming after the "late 2014" thing but i say better to get it over with now than have it spring up at a bad time later in the year.
On a unrelated note looks like WCW is starting to get some merchandise so i really hope someone decent makes a statue of Ayaka.
Are they apologising for the HxH Figma there?
I though Olivia was expensive but now i think she's good value compared to him.
They usually deliver the figures about 5-8 weeks after the official release date, but if you're a CR member you can't beat those prices anywhere.
Probably a good idea, I think he'll be even less affordable after he is out.
As far as I'm concerned, I'd have bought him, but I'm not going to pay much more for him than for the Seven Deadly Sins or such.
Alright. Who's the faggot that lied about fedex being fast and on dhl level? The item was shipped yesterday/today and the estimated delivery is Tuesday. That's EMS tier.
My brothers from another mother at DHL would have this shit done by tomorrow.
> My brothers from another mother at DHL would have this shit done by tomorrow.
That sounds like it might be domestic shipping.
Are you ignoring where the goods come from?
If it's going from Japan to the EU or USA through customs and all, that's not going to be as fast as a domestic DHL shipment.
Keep stored in case you ruin the other one.
It takes DHL 48 hours to deliver a shipment from Japan to the US.
Fedex is ems tier by comparison.
Most shipments by FedEx took around 48 hours to arrive in Europe, too.
I think they'll also be in the USA in 48 hours, just probably not at your home...
Why all the hate against JList?
DHL Express from Japan to West and Central Europe or the USA takes 48 hours to your door.
Shipped on the night of the first day (JST), arrives during the third day (CET).
Although I have no idea how the date line influences that with regard to the US.
JList are overcharging out of their asses.
>DHL Express from Japan to West and Central Europe or the USA takes 48 hours to your door.
I guess that's possible... not sure how they do it in the entire USA, though, with all the remote areas that add hours of flight time / driving time.
>Although I have no idea how the date line influences that with regard to the US.
JST->PST => +17 hours, I think
I do want this, but that's purely for the design. Might just wait for inevitable scales.
From the point or view of the buyer, it actually takes around 36 hours or even less cause the time difference.
If it ships at 10pm EST Wednesday, I get it early Friday before noon.
Got some new doujins in today.
Are you that guy who buys anything Hibiki related?
Also, good taste sir.
One of these things is not like the others
>Are you that guy who buys anything Hibiki related?
I bought that artbook solely for the Hibiki art in it, but it just happens to have Chihaya on the cover.
Phrased myself a bit badly. The shipping is $20, the customs are $20, the fig is $55. Ow.
Well fuck I caved. I hope he doesn't hit the bin after release, but usually MF figures don't right?
It's like you didn't even look at their prices
Ah, yesh. That brown sloth.
why isn't she chubbier
This scan should tickle James's fancy.
Fuck yeah Cure March.
Her bonus item is a daki?
Amakuni are doing a Mutsu. Rejoice Mutsu-bros, we don't have to suffer QuesQ or Penguin Parade.
Why is she sitting on an Alien egg?
Disregard that, fucking penguin parade making me think it's alter.
I think she's the only one of the Sins I don't like. Something about her mouth/face looks weird. But I can't just buy all the others and not buy her. Fuck my autism.
Anyone can see the release that from the scan? I see some numbers.
What magazine is this?
I love her lewd pose, how she's showing her pantsu in such an indecent way. I just want to bury my face in between those fat thighs, and sniff her crotch all day long until I faint because of pvc intoxication.
>Extreme middlejewman markups
>Horrible staff with overinflated egos in general
They have been known to use "I run J-List" to cut lines and get freebies at conventions.
Cushion cover, I think.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think I see 11,880円, 3月10日 and 8~9月. So pre-orders start March 10th, release date August/September?
>Griffon and Penguin Parade
Preorder deadline is March 10 and estimated delivery is August or September.
What's wrong with QuesQ or Penguin Parade?
Very shoddy QC
>release date August/September
Good, I was afraid she would release in June.
So they're better or worse than Griffon?
Bit better than Griffon, but still bad enough to make people avoid them. I myself plan to get the PP Laura.
I don't have the pictures, but the QC on Purple Heart from Ques Q was one of the worst I've seen. Worse than anything I've seen from Griffon.
Her entire design is just ugly and on top of that she's a disgusting smelly fujoshit too.
Decent Kanae figure: never. Life is pain.
Crapshoot. If the final paint job was as good as the stock photos, they're great. With Griffon you can see the pallid coloring and dead face and smiles a mile away.
The lack of shading or depth kill it for me.
I'll pick it up after release if she hit's the bin.
Yeah, heard about this yesterday, great news.
Do Griffon figs decrease in value over time? Some of the figs keep selling out like hotcakes.
>Order status not updated in five days
You're killing me, Japan Post.
They're not worthy to piss on.
You mean like these?
Please tell me that is a bootleg, my Kurumi is fucking shit but that really takes the cake.
B-but Saber's breasts aren't that large.
Yes they are.
Serious consideration. Anyone have her?
Is there any reason to buy bootlegs? I mean there are people who buy them even knowing that they're bootlegs.
The Saber I know has cute perky breasts.
Bootleg-kun, please leave.
I find the base really ugly.
Those fucking cheetoes
Get on my level.
Wrong saber, those tits belong to Nero/Red Saber from F/E.
Is it RSAL?
>Changing the character model so dramatically
Damn it Type Moon, don't do this to me. Aren't all the stories set in the same universe anyway? Even Carnival Phantasm is supposed to be canon.
Except for Sader, not really. Some tell themselves there's no difference between real and fakes, but they're fucking morons.
You're stuck on the same status as I am, it's usually quick for me.
Cheap, not a loss if you burnt it, stunt double for your real figures
It will probably be here by next week right, right? ;_;
Nope, it is a plot point that F/E is set in an alternate universe to other TM stuff also of course she looks different to Arturia.
Where's it from?
Ah, that makes sense then.
Saber having large breasts still annoys me though.
So why did she change her outfit to this bizarre white latino-disco suit?
Guys, I just found this at a local pawn shop. She was pretty stained and her left leg was so twisted she wouldn't stay standing even with her base. After some time cleaning and fixing that leg I must say - This is an awesome figure. From what I heard she's somewhat rare. So, how much do you think she's worth?
Sorry about the crappy photo, but I only have my cellphone right now.
That's her outfit in the second game, F/E CCC
Your servents get those new costumes because an antagonist is fucking with them.
>So, how much do you think she's worth
Here's another pic
She looks nice, damage not apparent in the photo.
also nice dog
I'll buy your cat for ten bucks.
That's obviously a cat, retard.
I'll buy your figure and your cat for a package deal of $18.45
It's an extra $4 for air holes in the package
As I've said - I've done a pretty good job.
You must be a retard yourself.
It's clearly a fucking dog
If it's shut I won't know whether or not it exists at the time. If it doesn't exist then it doesn't need air holes. If it does, then I've got a dead cat. I can work out something.
My last RSAL took 28 days, arriving just yesterday.
Maybe it's name is dog
It's an extra $20 to make it a Schrodinger's cat
So something in my January order got delayed and everything that was in there got moved too. What the fuck AmiAmi? What am I supposed to do now?
They'll split it within a couple of days. Or if you're super impatient/everything else is in stock you can contact them and ask to have the delayed item moved to its own order.
Isn't this a tad bit expensive?
Stop taking the pictures at whatever angle you have your cell phone at.
Normal pricing for them.
Ore no 7 sins konna ni kawaii wake ga nai
Well there are more Saber's than Arturia, her daughter Mordred for instance or Siegfried are some examples.
And speaking of i hope Jack won't be the only one to get a statue made from apocrypha.
I meant more like where you got it.
Hobby Japan's store.

Feels good that I have avoided all spoilers so far.
I pre-ordered a Gutto-Kuru figure on impulse, how fucked am I? Haven't been lurking this thread for too long, and there is no mention of them in the guide.
B-but it's Apple's fault for not converting the file!
C'mon guys, she's gota be worth something!
Enjoy that ending son.
There's already been spoilers posted in this thread as it is, I don't know what you're expecting for saying that.
>Feels good that I have avoided all spoilers so far.
Come on now, that is just asking for trouble.
Nobody wants a shit condition figure, especially if it's damaged. Do you honestly think people in this hobby want to buy figures that are in bad condition when they can get perfect figures they won't regret? Because that's what happens when people buy damaged figures, they regret not paying the extra.
Yea, usually they don't. Especially not the expensive ones that get produced in lower numbers and that turned out great (like I expect Benten to turn out).
The price on the relatively few items remaining on the market after release will typically just inflate and inflate until it's like 2-3 times as high.
Still, I just gave up on him. Looks nice, but it seems like I'd be paying 50% too much for how much I'd like him.
Stop, you've worn out your welcome. It's not cute.
Mediocre for the most part. Nor even worth bashing nor praising.
I like to live dangerously
Anybody order an item off of manda that had the description of, "box yellowish"? Was it truly the box that was yellow or did they fuck up and it was actually the figure that was yellow and not the box
Starting to think bargain bin figures are in the bin for a reason. Her head was broken at the neck; apparently I'm not the only person this has happened to.
Holy shit, you got the Leviathan oppai pad!
Did you catch that pre-order last August, or did it come back at some point?
Maybe it was exposed to sunlight while still sealed and both the figure and box yellowed, but they couldn't open it up to see for sure if the figure yellowed.
Boxes can get sun damaged, but the figure is most likely fine.
I bought one that had that and I still can't find the part of the box that's supposed to be yellow. Figure was fine too.
>no one realizes that the tail is moved in different positions.
So her tail is bendable/movable then?
Also preorders open on the 25th.
That's leviathan though . She was released at comiket and sold shortly after at the site which is when I got her. I threw in the mat and sleeves as extra.
Pic partially related. Asmodeus got a tissues box sleeve
My tail moves in different position when I look at her. I hope she will end up good. Amakuni figures has been mediocre lately.
Of January? My body is ready.
I wouldn't say lately when only one was a bluff. And the previous were quite good
So I suppose it's not too bad if I like the character and there are no other figures of her so far.
>My tail moves in different position when I look at her.
Yes.Preorders open Jan 25th and they close March 10th.
Release date is either August or September 2014.
You're a fucking idiot for coming to 4chan if you're avoiding Rebellion spoilers. I left this place for almost 2 months to avoid it.
Bikini Lucifer and Shimakaze look pretty bad judging from prototype photos.
I like both, Shimakaze particularly.
>caring this much for meguca
I'm glad I forgot about the show after I finished the TV series.
People complain about luci's eyes but I don't really see the deal. I love the soul stealing expression they have.
This. The series was barely worth putting up with for 12 episodes let alone a fucking movie.
They're not particularly bad, but I do agree that Amakuni jumped the shark with QG Noel and Levi-tan.
> That's leviathan though
Yea, I realized that mistake immediately, but the timeout for post deletion is just a minute or so.
Unfortunately, I missed the pad by some days. Dat regret!
> Asmodeus got a tissues box sleeve
That one, I have.
Is that Umi picture online anywhere?
Oh wait it's Chihaya.
Thought it was Umi from Love Live.
That outfit is atrocious.
Fuck off, General.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as alternate faceplate, is in fact, the standard faceplate/donut, or as I've recently taken to calling it, the standard faceplate plus donut.
It's not an alternate faceplate, you stick the donut in her mouth, there is a small piece of plastic that holds the donut in place. It works fine.
Source: I have the figure
Nero's body is a miracle of the universe.
Unless you keep your figures in the box or use custom bases I guess it's inevitable for some of them to start "leaning" forward.
So, how much does it affect it's selling price? Should I "fix it" with the old hairdryer/warm water trick before selling or sell it as is?
I wouldn't even call it a preorder they shipped her just three days after I placed the order. And was shipped from GJ's warehouse to my place just 3 days later.
Out of curiosity, how long have you had it?
Well son, I'll be honest.
>found this at a local pawn shop
>pretty stained and her left leg was so twisted she wouldn't stay standing even with her base
Reading that, I looked on MFC and...
Now you do the math about how much it's worth.
>fingering herself in a mirror
Is there a buyfag version of this?
That's too bad. Your losses.
You used nor wrong.
are there any good chuu2 figs?
Deko and Rikka by Kyo-Ani.
everything about that makes me angry
Posted that pic as an example. Don't actually have her. I do have an Birdy that is suffering the same fate. Don't have pics with me right now.
But asking you question, I had her for almost 2 years now and she has leaned a lot.
He said good.
So is the PSP version the only one that's available?
Leaning is a problem that has been left in the past mostly, nowadays they use metal rods or abs cores.
Know about that one. The one I've got is original, I'm positive. Colors are right, she does't have Han Solo's pistol and the box has an official seal.
Also, I may have used the wrong words when I described the figure. The "stains" ware actually dirty marks. After a warm bath they were gone.
When I mentioned "twisted" I actually meant that same leaning effect I asked previously.
Don't think I'll sell her anymore, though.
They aren't that bad, just unremarkable.
All figures are objectively unremarkable, you just pick ones that suit your taste.
Fuck Mordred, Siegfried is where it's at.
Male scales sell well, right? ;_;
F/E doesn't have versions other than the PSP
God damn. I hate PSP games. Well, guess I'll just continue playing it.
He's so tacky.
It'll be painted when she's announced for Smash.
Are you always in these threads? I rarely see you post.
what is the average time a fig gets into bargain bin on amiami?
I thought she was up on BiJ already.
Are you proud of yourself, James?
From 1 minute to never
Is this the new FoTM?
Early sale. She doesn't go up for pre-orders officially till the 24th, pics will also be shown.
Just use Figinstock.
>Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion
Where'd you order it from?
Why does every single figure that gets talked about in here now get called FOTM?
Haven't you heard? Everything is a bandwagon.
But then nothing would be a bandwagon.
That tends to happen when someone tries to force the same pictures in almost every thread.
>Grand Total 29,480 JPY
I was thinking I hadn't paid for anything in a while.
They way she's been painted makes her clothes look like cake icing.
Why is the paint so shitty?
Wow that looks like garbage
Which is all the time?
It honestly seems like that now, it feels like there's a lot of people who think that if there's a figure they don't like but people are buying it then it's a bandwagon.
Looks like photoshop.
Oh god yes. I have the GEB Figurearts for her and it's actually better than any figma I have.
This one looks pretty awesome, pre-orders when?
But what about the older figures that suffer from that problem? The doubt main doubt i have still stands... How much does the "leaning" effect decreases a statue value? Should I attempt to fix it before selling?
Btw, this is the figure I'm having problems with.
Online exclusive. Still debating whether to get her or hold out for scale.
Online exclusive where? From the Bandai webpage?
Am I going to have to use a fucking proxy?
BiJ and NY have her.
Not quite buyfag, but it might interest people that there's a kickstarter to translate a Moe Headphone book
$20 for the book and omake book, $40 for that and an autograph book with art from the book and there's also a B1 size wallscroll which you can add on or buy a tier that includes it.
i'd buy a decent Sieg scale, but i imagine Mordred, Jeanne or le secret would be a higher priority, which is why i find it surprising a prototype of Jack was first.
Pleas say somethinh
Dude, don't even get your hopes high
We will probably get Jeanne, nad maybe Mordred by some miracle and that's it
I'm still wainting for my Berserker anything
Oh i am not getting my hopes up, Archer should be a good example of why not and there are still plenty of older TM characters that need a good scale or figure, I am just saying i think those three have a far higher chance than Sieg and it is odd Jack was the first, maybe only, to get a scale from F/A.
Thanks for the link anon, but we've known about that for quite awhile now.
I figured you might, reposting in hopes it'll hit 20k and we get a couple more pages.
What I don't get is why Beats by Dr. Dre are really hyped up.
I mean they are good headphones but seriously over priced. You could get Sennheiser's for half the price and get double the quality.
Is it the brand people purchase them for?
In my opinion, it's the same reason Apple stuff is so damn popular. Normalfags see it, and see it being hyped to hell, and not knowing about what it is they're really buying or knowing about other products, they simply believe that it's "top of the line" because it's the most hyped and most popular thing. Needless to say, it then works it's way into artbooks like this because popular things equal money. It's not really too hard to understand once you look at where it starts.
I'm mildly interested, but I can't decide if I like the artwork enough.
Rider please, I definitely purchased CD's not a book.
Which version should I get?
Right looks better, more contrast.
Why Native, why
The white one.
go for both or flip a coin
White looks nicer, less cold.
Get out /vg/.
No. I want oppai-loli
I wonder if Perrine is delayed forever because nobody wants to buy worst girl.
what was the last strike witch released
Rocket legs Sanya, I think.
Rocket Sanya in November. Before that was Marseille in May, and then Erica last January.
>(Pre-owned ITEM:A / BOX:B)
>Item: A: Like New - Item is sealed and is unopened or appears to be unopened.
>Box: B: Some damage to the box is visible.
Do any of you have experience with this?
I'm kind of worried about the item having been taken out of the box and been ejaculated on ;_;
>Item is sealed
Hotglue shouldn't be a sizeable problem to even worry about, specially when they specifically tell you that it hasn't been opened.
Go buy a C item and then we'll talk.
Buy both, swap the legs.
My Yui was C rated item with a B box.
I'm convinced I was sent the incorrect one.
Either that or it's been hotglued.
C is for cummed on, remember that for the future.
Alright, I've gone through the stores in the guide, and looked on Amazon and Ebay.
Should I just be resigned to the fact that I missed the boat and am going to have to pay 100+ dollars for the fig/chogokin of Drossel?
I'm yet to be a buyfag and I keep getting put off by seeing all of the figures I want being long sold out/resold very expensively.
I'd buy a bargain binned Perrine. It seems appropriate somehow.
Not that the SW Alter figures bargain bin that hard.
Most have hit the bin though, Sanya, Marseille, Hartman and Eila did. And those are just the last ones.
Is there a cheaper place to get her?
I'm about to pull the trigger.
We're not here to hold your hand. Just a make a decision for once in your life.
A-am I a buyfag now?
I have this strange urge to box up all my figures. Not sell them off though, just put them away for a while. Is this normal?
...I see figma drossel on mandrake for 4000 yen, look harder, but it is the original not the charming version though
>We're not here to hold your hand
Charming is the one I'm looking for, thus the picture I posted.
I just really like the design over the twintails one.
You could check Manda, just to be safe.
Yes. Also I like your taste in girls. How'd you get best girl's nendo already?
No idea. I wasn't expecting it to come so soon. Is getting it 5 days after they shipped it normal?
Obviously I don't know much about this stuff.
Oh, it took 5 days? That's normal then. Sorry.
I guess it just seems like it took less time since I ordered her with USAL, which I never usually do.
She looks so soft but I know she's hard.
That's not the only thing that's hard.
heat her up
Does anyone have her?
I'm not familiar with the maker - any noticeable flaws?
Has a chuuni pirate figure been announced yet? I've decided when it does, it'll be my first purchase.
I think so.
I just boxed up 90% of the figures I had out and put them away in the closet.
Her rack looks significantly smaller.
She's not the best girl.
Not yet. Hoping for a scale of the Nightmare of Solomon myself.
That depends, do you possibly live in Europe?
Has anyone ever gotten anything god from rightstuf blind boxes?
I'll fight you, man.
I think her anime rack is just bloated. Guess I'll see in February when I get the translated Vita game.
Yes, I live in EU.
No she has a pretty big rack. That figure looks more like her sister who has a small rack and ugly eyes.
Well I see someone selling her on MFC but it's a little shady looking, maybe?
The account isn't that old but no harm in messaging them.
>Argentine citizens making online purchases for products sent from abroad will now be limited to two transactions per year, after the AFIP tax bureau yesterday announced additional conditions for its latest control measure aimed at impeding capital flight.
>AFIP described the measure in an additional resolution published yesterday in the Official Gazette as “two opportunities in the calendar year” for citizens to purchase merchandise online from foreign websites, and reiterated elements of Tuesday’s announcement like the 50-percent surcharge on every dollar spent above the annual limit of US$25 per person.
>Any purchases beyond the new two-item limit will require a buyer to register as an importer, while if purchasing just one or two items whose total value exceed US$25 the buyer must complete a sworn statement online and pay the excess surcharge before collecting the items from the post or Customs.
FUCK, and I was only starting in this hobby.
How are the taxes, laws and customs in your country?
Anyone has a clear photo of her pantsu?
>>Argentine citizens making online purchases for products sent from abroad will now be limited to two transactions per year
what the FUCK
The one that offer 7000 yen price?
I'll think about it, thanks.
hahaha, what the fuck man, I'd get the fuck out of there if i was you because if they pull that shit who knows what else they will do.
Jesus, it's like they want you to pretend there isn't a world around you.
I feel so bad for you
Nigger, you best get away from there. Holy shit.
I hope you guys have your own amazon, ebay etc or else a whole load of people are gonna be pissed
Welcome to the 17th century. Enjoy your highwaymen and tollgates.
>How are the taxes, laws and customs in your country?
Haven't had to pay any customs or vat so far.
I'm never going to complain about UK taxes again.
Time to move, anon.
>no customs or vat so far
Where are you living?
what is america
Package arrived via EMS. It was 3.25kg.
I still can't believe I paid 3000 yen on shipping.
My hidamari graduation key animation artbook came in today. I don't know if I'm ready for this...
Okay. Either way, you have my jelly.
Yea, I do have her.
No big flaws on mine, but there are small defects within the series - tiny scratches on the paint and the like.
The paint job isn't as precise as the best manufacturers do it, either. Look too close on her shoe straps, and you'll see some imperfections.
Overall, it is just the usual mid-range figure, and the impression from afar is quite good, though.
The face and hair don't really look like her.
fuckers, I had to pay €50 total on €250 worth of goods.
> I still can't believe I paid 3000 yen on shipping.
Sounds normal to cheap.
That'd still count as international purchases if they get something from Japan or the US through eBay or Amazon.
Nope, I wasn't!
I want to buy a daki of my waifu, Cheryl, but the only one I've found is http://www.amazon.com/JRZ670-Anime-Dakimakura-Tantei-hugging/dp/B00GRLVM3U but it's 2lewd. Are there any others out there that wouldn't get me a visit from the FBI?
Yeah, it's too cheap. I can't believe the store hasn't tried to charge me more.
Here... let's see we can make purchases up to 2000 USD a year, individual packages that may don't cost more than 200 USD are tax free, if they go above this margin you're taxed and raped in the ass (up to 23% the total cost).
I don't get taxed most of the time, and there is no limit since customs doesn't have a registry of how much a person purchases through the year, there are 3 channels in customs, RED, ORANGE and GREEN, they open and check the values in RED and you have to retrieve your goods at customs, as long as you haven't purchased an onahole it won't be as awkward, on ORANGE they call you to get back your stuff, they open the package in front of you and that's it, GREEN goes straight to the postal dependence, but you enter the registry with each package they decide to inspect or when they call you...
Oh my. I may consider to oder it if it's interesting.
>Total weight: 3.800 kg
>Amount ¥9,123 JPY
And yes, that's just shipping
I must acquire this.
>Bitching for 3000yen
Sazabi cost me 5300yen for shipping.
Shitty, but not third-world shitty.
Yea, they must have carried the cost or had some kind of deal themselves.
Usually, for 3.3 KG, EMS would be like 7000 yen (making FedEx and others a more desirable option).
The set comes with two books. One is a small send off book with sketch art from the VA's and animation staff.
The other book is the key animations
I apologize that my wording was unclear. I'm surprised about the very LOW shipping charge, knowing that a 3.25kg package would be around 6,100 yen to ship normally, and somehow I haven't been asked for pay up for the difference.
>mail arrives by donkey
>80% of time you must fight the local drug lord, armed with no more than a nunchuck, all the way up to the corrupt federal government office to retrieve your package just as they are about to auction it off
Oh sounds great. Can we have a closer look of the photo with all the hidmari cast ? Thanks
I admire the patience of anybody who uses SAL. This is my first time using it and the waiting is driving me nuts. Never again.
Make sure you get unregistered so that you don't spend every single day checking the non-moving package.
Wait so you can only spend $25 per year? And if you spend more than that you get the 50% surcharge?
I don't pay customs, at least not yet
And all my packages are EMS
what did you order, bucko?
I actually use surface freight.
Have an app that tracks your package and forget about it unless you get a customs / delivery notification...
Here you go anon.
I feel so sorry for you.
Mexifriend here, I always use EMS and I have never had to pay any fees, my packages always arrive directly to my door.
You should considerate moving to Mexico. We pretty chill over here.
god i hate that crotch though serves me right for buying it
Thank you. I can't believe Hidamari is going to end somedaysoon ;_;
I have a house in Mexico (I live in the USA) and I've always wanted to order something and sent it over there so I can see the guy in the motorcycle deliver my package.
That's fucking ridiculous.
>How are the taxes, laws and customs in your country?
Switzerland. 8% taxes. Like 12% import fees for the postal services provider (actually 3% + 16.5 swiss francs fixed, but with an usual figure shipment, that's about what it ends up being).
Everything else I'd consider quite okay. Customs is sometimes taking a week or so to do its job, but packages usually arrive reliably and customs is generally careful not to damage anything they inspect.
Still the postal import fees are quite silly, as is the amount they would charge for export shipments.
That was my big mistake. I did RSAL thinking it'd be great that I could check the status. Two weeks later and it's still "Dispatch from outward office of exchange".
GSC and the first Koto Senjougahara scales. Once I have them I'll just need GSC Kanbaru to finish my collection.
Holy shit anon.
I have to pay 60% of the full package if it gets caught in customs, but sometimes, they're too retarded and create a value.
>30.000 yen package gets caught on customs
>Go pick up and pay for the box
>Only pay 60$
>30.000yen value was scratched and someone wrote 100$
Dispite knowing that the picture quality isn't gonna be great, I'm kinda considering Funi's Psycho-Pass Collector's Box for all those extras.
Swiss poste are a bunch of jews. They charged me 15chf for posting a nendoroid box sized package.
>despite knowing that the picture quality won't be great
>I know it's going to look bad but I want it
I bet you stream anime when you watch it
Shit, now I feel spoiled. We only pay around 14% over here.
No, I download. I'm just saying all the little things they put in that are neat.
this will be the one and only localized bd i will ever get
For large enough packages, they use a car.
Care to tell me why? The music was great, and considering it was the shows only redeeming point you should just get the ost.
That's the cheapest offer classified as letter, no less. A package would probably have cost more like 40.
It was a fucking stupid idea to privatize the post without ensuring that there is competition that also works for private customers.
Either way, yes. I agree with that assessment...
I think it's a custom that one anon made over at /toy/
Here is what's in the box, honestly it's probably the best collector's edition of a localized Japanese anything I've seen in a while. That said, the price still seems a bit high.
i dunno i just really liked it and yes i know the os is godly but i just really like the whole show and if i knew mood i would have bought those bd's ages ago im still depressed it got no figures
>this whole post
Try responding in English next time.
this post hurts to look at
Please put on a trip so I can filter you.
It's obviously some tumblr fujoshit that managed to wander in here, just ignore it
No retards allowed
what can i say i learned your language from your shitty movies
I wish I could move away, because of this and a lot of reasons,but I don't have family in others countries or friends and I lack the money to do so.
Inia looks delicious in either swimsuit
I'm not a regular here by any means, but I do check amiami for cute things, any of you guys plan to buy this?
Is this the work of a enemy stand?
All three >>100797267
>implying we're not your only friends
Suck some cock, then you can move away.
Anyone got that pictuer of Inia with the Teddy bear and all that PLOT?
That upper right pic
Those childbearing hips
Manga. Amazon jp's shipping is so fucking fast, holy shit.
>Funi's PP release
Make sure you watch the Extras reel. There's bonus footage on there from an anime con last year where /a/ infiltrated a PP gathering with HYPER OATS
I live in Eu too.
2 days to California.
Are there scans of these?
That's normal. I've had 2 days to Oregon.
It is pretty darn cute, and I do want it, but I feel that the asking price is too much. I'll definitely pick it up if it bargain bins.
I'm just not used to it being that fast since I usually do RSAL.
Bought Volumes 1-29 of Bleach for $6 and Volumes 1-7 of Berserk for $10.
It's nice to be introduced to good manga series for such a low cost. because we love Manga in these threads ...right?
>Shipped: Dec 2
Never had SAL take this long before, surely it's just the holiday aftermath right?
I was starting to question myself about this fucking hobby
Then I got this and can't stop smiling every time I see her
I'm picking her up tomorrow after Royal Mail holding her hostage for two weeks.
It can be. Last year I had a package shipped Dec. 3 via USAL and it arrived around Jan. 21 in the US. Where's your package going?
Maybe it's waiting for you at the post office, It happened to me once, I had this package sit at the post office sitting there for 2 months.
Got berserk 1-36 and I still haven't fucking received it
If it were releasing in any other month I would get it. But May (and June now that I think about it) are going to be very expensive months so as it is.
Where do you live? I'm in the same situation.
how is the fantasy doll manga?
I just want my mango.
Post here didn't even update it when it arrived in the country.
>Takara Tomy Arts
Is yours from Rightstuf? Me and a friend ordered ours mid- December and everything is still in back-order.
I only know of the individual pics. You can find them by the artists on dan/gelbooru or sankaku.
Interesting. I'm also in Cali. Is the shipping a fuckton?
does gsc online shop let you cancel things if you email them and ask?
>- How can I cancel my order?
>Sorry, orders cannot be cancelled.
So anon, what are you buying?
They even tell you to read their faq before ordering.
i want to cancel the shinobu fig
i went ahead and emailed customer support to ask if they can cancel it
i hope it works out
Now I just need a good company to do Nagato
I haven't read it yet so I guess I'll find out. But the art for Mix is really good. The art for the main is just average, still cute though.
>Interesting. I'm also in Cali. Is the shipping a fuckton?
For this order it was almost exactly double the price of the goods. So it's up there. It's best to buy in bulk and buy "sets" if you can, or at least for me because it just feels weird having the shipping be more than the actual product so I don't buy only like 1 volume at a time.
i made a \stupid impulse decision
>BFC online shop
Bad Frown Copany
Bad Frown Company
Don't worry anon, Orchid Seed will save us with best girl.
>best girl gets the worst route
wow what is every VN ever?
Ayako had one of the better routes in Walkure More&More
Out of all the Sins, I think Satan and Beelzebub look the best and Lucifer and Leviathan don't look so bad either.
I'm tempted to get them, but I'd want them all.
Still better than what I have to deal with.
At the moment we can't make online purchases because the economy is fucked up and they don't know how to fix it.
Importers have to participate in an auction-like system to receive dollars and buy stuff. The people who take care of that will be in charge of online purchases from now on. If they don't change anything we'll have our annual $400 cap back. If it does change we'll have to participate in auctions via our banks. First you need to state what you're buying and then the bank will participate in auctions for you and everybody else. If they win (they won't), they'll inform you of the price they're willing to sell you dollars for. You pay for it and finally receive your american money. Oh and if you decide to spend it on something different than what you stated you'll get fined.
I just hope they don't change anything. They were even talking about raising the yearly cap to $1000. ;_;
Is AmiAmi loading like shit for anyone else? It's been like this for the past few days for me.
I just want a Michiru Nendoroid.
Nope, probably just you.
Get all of them anon. You know you want to.
Are you posting from Africa?
Already? Shit, didn't take you long to change your mind. Well, let this be a lesson to you. Enjoy spending all that money on a figure you don't want.
I wouldn't know, I only played a few.
Where can I take a look at pictures of all of them?
God dammit, I want to buy so much
its not that I dont want it, its just that I found cheaper places to get her from and i thought it was an exclusive gsc rerelease until today oh well
Oh these, I thought for a second there was a line of umineko sins coming out, damnit, I want those creamy drills in PVC ;_;
This is what I thought too. Fucking disappointing.
Bute her route is the best
Babbys first vn
Isn't there a Blue Steel figure out there?
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Thank god I didn't buy the GE1 pleb version. I knew she was coming
Where does one buy such a lewd thing?
Shit, where did you order it?
Takao is getting a BQ and QuesQ/Phat scale
So no, not really

Does NY usually ship earlier than CDJapan?
>Trying to buy two doujins from DLSite
>I've always been able to buy things in the past
>Now my debit card keeps getting rejected no matter how many times I put it in
>I can use it fine anywhere else except DLSite
Are they blocking foreign cards now or something?
I just stuck them all in my carry on, shit was heavy.
>150,000 for surface mail
Julius nendo when?
Chi-you scale when?
25% VAT added to pretty much everything. Books/magazines and shipping are meant to have 6%, but you can safely assume the customs officer will slap 25% on those aswell. Everything SAL/RSAL I've had have gotten an additional $15 handling fee, while every EMS did not. I've ended up EMSing everything because I'd rather lose the money on something real.
As a general rule, nothing ever slips under the radar. I did have one duty-free shipment from Amiko right before christmas, I assume they were overburdened and just wanted things to leave. I've also had a $1 shipment from GSC pass by.
The law says lolicon is illegal. Prejudice says it has to be sufficiently realistic. Someone must have a vendetta against you for you to get in trouble. I've never had anything opened by customs.
>yfw they get put on a ship and it sinks
Try different card
I don't have any other cards.
Yaya when? ;_;
Forgot to quote >>100790209
Save up then. It will only get worse. I'm your friend.
>Avoids custom taxes by buying from a small store that listens to you I.E Tell them to make it a gift and set the value below the custom tax limit.
whoops, I mean 15,000.
Best girl is hanako
Fuck, guess I have to wait for the reprint although I doubt I'll be able to get one..
Anyone pre-ordered this and think this somewhat good? I want it, but I don't know.
Momo's ass and knee socks is keeping me from wanting it
>ass and kneesocks
>keeping me from wanting it
are you gay?
That's what's keeping you from wanting her? Not the shitty face?
Idiotic politicians who can't see that their shit economic policies only make matters worse.
Bargain bin soon too hopefully.
Dou you have some more photos of her?
Fuck sorry kinda fucked up on my English, but I enjoy girls who have nice ass and wear knee socks. But you're right the face isn't that great..
I wish it look similar to Max Factory
Nigga what are you doing
There is no lower legal limit for "mail order goods", only a practical one of charging a couple of cents. I think the limit on non "mail order goods" was if they could charge at least $15.
I recall Dealextreme sent a large number of gift or $0-marked parcels, customs threw a fit and returned them until they were marked with proper values.
But Akane is the better girl.
How much is than in Trinni silver coins?
I would be happy for an opportunity to spend that much on my waifu. Alas there is none.
If I went to Kinokuniya what are the chances of me finding some older Viz and Tokyopop manga?
I hear it expensive there but I don't mind much. I know I could use amazon for it but I don't like used things and some prices are very out there.
Does nippon-yasan always take more than a week to prep an order?
I love Komaeda, but the figure itself looks pretty shitty. Would buy it for 4-5k.
Just opened a dispute on N-Y, wish me luck.
But it's all my own fault, but still, i will try to avenge this box damage!
>pay for fast shipping
>get this instead
I find them similar to gay-asia
And the other. Third figure was brand new looking, and outer box was immaculate, only thing that coulda happened is them going into the box like this.
Oh come on
It's this faggot again.
I remember you from the last thread, you're being way too autistic about boxes, and the compensation you deserve is worth less then the time you're spending writing e-mails.
If I was N-Y I'd just ban you from purchasing again.
It's a fucking box, stop bitching.
Hopefully if they do end up refunding you because of your autism, they ban you from their website.
Anon, it's just a box, calm down.
You're a cancer
The autism is strong with this one.
Holy shit, I'm never going to complaing about Brazil taxes again.
Ok, I will, only less now. What the actual fuck.
They shipped a few of my preorders on release and the others a bit later.
It's a flat rate of around 3k right?
well, it's amazon. nobody has better logistics
My nigga. How are the novels? I just ordered the first 4 volumes from Honto.
How much did you pay for it?
>16k marus for an official artbook of your waifu
Artbooks are great. So worth it.
Close to $70 with shipping, its kind of a heavy set. I still remember seeing a couple unopened on Manda for 50. It's well worth it trust me, even better than the Honeycomb set they did last year.
800 yen starting fee + 400 yen for each book or +300 yen for each BD/DVD.
So a single book = 1200 yen, 2 books + 1 DVD = 1900 yen, etc.
