I hope not. I don't think I'd like her as much.

Today is the day...
Wouldn't surprise me.
Now if they'd only do some good outfits.
I doubt they're going to do the new outfits if they didn't even finish doing the other guys.
Has anyone ever experienced a problem with their daki fading after a few years?
I just got my first, and I am paranoid to actually use it for fear of tainting it's pureness.
It's 2-way tricot, if the material matters.
MFW I am actually considering getting another one that's exactly the same so I have a backup.
So we need to go visit the grave of Laura Bunny Anon-kun in addition to Ayanofag's now?
Bracing for that shitty paint job.
Don't remind me
2way tricot is fairly delicate, it'll begin to fade earlier than a few years.
>MFW I am actually considering getting another one that's exactly the same so I have a backup.
Do this, buy a bootleg version so it's not expensive, assuming you bought a bootleg in the first place.
>Mikatan tells everyone that Shinobu is not GSC Shop exclusive
>I already ordered out of a panic from GSC
Whelp looks like the mailman stole my package. I went to the Post Office last Monday and they filed a report and took my name, tracking number, and phone number and I haven't heard back from them yet, gonna go back tomorrow but it doesn't look good. Guess it was bound to happen sometime.
Sorry, Mamitan. I wish it was.
>forever in my heart
At least, I hope they are close by.
Also, what would I write on the immigration form? personal or business trip?
If you're graverobbing Ayanofag then that's business, otherwise personal.
Personal. Business means showing proof of employment and official document that it's a business trip.
You need better cruise control anon.
I don't think he can write in "graverobbing, reference @ 4ch/a/n" on the customs entry form without being whisked away forever.
It's business then.
I've got the honeycomb one after someone pointed it out in a buyfag thread.
Currently waiting to see what happens with an auction, there's a 1000 yen price difference between buy it now and the starting price.
I'm still having fits of missing the Shimakaze Nendo both times. I blame that.
>2way tricot is fairly delicate, it'll begin to fade earlier than a few years.
Well shit. That dampens my spirits somewhat.
Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible to get a bootleg.
The images, as far as I can tell, can't be found anywhere.
>The images, as far as I can tell, can't be found anywhere.
I'd say try scanning it, but I don't even know if that's a plausible thing to do.
Do I have to do anything special to get a tracking number from Amiami? I haven't received one for my last two shipments.
RSAL or EMS, right? You should get it in an e-mail.
>being NTR'd by the mailman.
I feel sorry for anon.
I don't think that'd be feasible. You'd need a really nice scanner, wouldn't you?
Plus, I would die of embarrassment if I were to bring it to a copy store.
EMS. I've gotten the payment request & payment received emails both times, but not one with a tracking number. I also checked my spam folder, but it wasn't there either.
source on the right doujin
How about shipping notice?
I've been looking in Norway all these years...
Thank you, Anon. Thank you.
me on the left
You didn't reply me last thread.
How's the Jinrui novel? I just purchased the first 4 volumes off honto.
No shipping notice either time. The latest order went to "shipped" a couple days ago.
What is it
There's a funimation sale on rightstuf going on right now. One big thing I saw was the Eureka 7 blurays that are coming out later this year are like 10 dollars cheaper than amazon right now.
That's weird, you using gmail or yahoo? Did you check spam folder?
Time to ask the retarded question. Did you change your email? Might as well ask since you're already trying to figure it out.
You can always email them for support.
So...Amakuni is making..
I haven't trudged through them yet. I'm still going through my kanji so its been more difficult with books that don't have furigana.
Quality wise I like them a lot. There's little colored foldouts in each volume.
Thank god Nagisa comes with Bebe, but it sucks she doesn't come with an Anthony or something.
Doesn't look too bad?
This fucking hobby, everything I want have gone EOL. You certainly pay the fucking price for being late to buyfagging, holy shit.
Oh Jesus is that a Hajime fig?
Where the hell did you see that
Amakuni likes their scantily clad ladies.
Where did that anon that bought lots of her doujin went?
Jesus chirst, anon, what the hell are you buying?
Never mind, I was thinking of the wrong Hajime
He's ready to rape his uke.
What the hell is with his head?
What the fuck did you get?
She better not have pantsu.
Friday, I hear
What's wrong with it?
The seller flies to your house and delivers it by hand.
I hope he gives you a blowjob too. Jesus Christ.
Didn't buy it.
So, I got another cover from AcHobby. Really happy whith it.
What makes their covers special for me is that the bedsheets are always part of the design, unlike most other covers where the bedsheets are plain white.
Also, for your information: AcHobby recently took down all their cover from Taobao. I panicked and sent them an email. This is their reply:
>I'm Alk as a representative of AcHobby HK
>Because we are facing with some operating difficulties, the store need to be closed for a while to tackle with the problems.
>But do not worry. the store will be reopened after we solve the problems
>Feel happy to hear that you love our artwork,we must keep alive as all we can!
>Ps:Sorry for my strange Endlish...orz
Glad they are coming back.
Nevermind, it just looked off in those other pictures.
Are buyfag threads really frowned upon/disliked on /a/? Like just barely allowed? Because they seem something more like DJT, where it's not anime/manga related, but was let go. Difference is DJT is actually encouraged.
Well, if they stick to HJ for exclusive release...there will be nothing under that skirt at all. I meant no details at all.
Additionally, I bought a 100x33 standard polyester cover, because I wanted to see how this material compares to 2WT. But instead they sent me a full-size standard polyester cover!
The material doesnt feel soft in any way, so I can't recommend it to anyone. However, it seems very durable, and I guess it would last longer than 2WT.
Still, I'm happy I got it, since I paid the price of the smaller one, which was approximately 23$.
>tfw no daki of my waifu
Does anyone have any idea who I could commission one from?
>would probably still get hit by customs
You know I always wanted to get her.
Too bad she was already re-released.
I don't think anything ever has been re-re-released.
Fuck off, General.
Man, this year is starting out poorly.
Guess I'll be spending the budget on some rare shit I never managed to buy when it was released.
I believe the original cause was because /jp/ can't talk about most shit that would actually fit on the board. I believe it's more allowed because it sticks to it's own thread and involves anime-related products. Don't quote me on that, but that's what I recall and think.
That would be better than adding something that doesn't exist in the sakiverse.
does TaoBao have a decent enough availability for dakis, or should I just look at the regular bootleg stores? I want to get more waifu dakis, but only if I can't find them anywhere else.
Perhaps they'll do Debut outfits next or the 2000%
>Can't see Himecut's ass because of his cape.
Maybe MF will do more males? But then again 'male figures don't sell'.
WonFes is just around the corner
It's Taobao, it's Chinese sellers all the way down. What do you think?
>Ps:Sorry for my strange Endlish...orz
Also, nice daki
and will still cost 5,000yen each.
I don't know, just because they're Chinese, doesn't mean they'll have artwork that I haven't seen anywhere else before.
AcHobby is not a bootlegger. Their covers are their original work.
I wouldn't know.
I haven't been in this hobby long enough to even experience a re-release.
I wouldn't count on it, though. I'm sure the re-release was in celebration of Rebirth, I don't think we'll get to see anything new for Muramasa.
Even better. Too bad their storefront is down, I'll have to have a look around.
>'male figures don't sell'.
Fujos and Otomes are crazy. Never underestimate the power of cute 2D boys.
Hope 2014 will be a slow year. I still need to track down CMs Corp Horo and some other lewd scale.
Once figma Futayo gets released I'm getting off of the figma ride.
Unless they make a figma Tomo
Shit. My roommate was right behind me when I clicked this
EMS PLS STOP BEING A DICK
even when I get it devalued its still a pain in the ass
>implying you wouldn't print your waifu out of metal
Alter's Dizzy is on her third run. I want to say there are others that have had three runs, but I can't remember any other examples right now.
>I still need to track down CMs Corp Horo
Got mine on eBay recently for approx~160.
Armpit stubble why.
But can I use my own cells to make organic ink?
>you will never create your waifu out of yourself
>wanting to taint your waifu's perfections with your shitty cells
That's gross, anon
>I am become waifu, destroyer of hearts
Kinda dry at the moment and there is still Feb and March rape months to clear out before I can commit to Holy Grail searching.
Jesus christ, when does it end!?
How much of this shit can they make, what creatures can keep buying it?
Science will find a way.
But Nanoha is still doing movies, anon.
Anon seems to have forgotten about Kantai rape fest to come.
It's not stopping any time soon.
They're all getting new material. ufotable anime, SoniAni, SW S3.
How long does hobbyheart take to process orders?
Lame as this sounds but any UK dudes here who use RSAL and would like to know status of their delivery once in the UK should use Twitter to contact Royal Mail.
I always get a reply within 30~ minutes and they tell me exactly where my package is.
Sometimes I've waited a week and it's been sitting with customs charges without my knowledge because they forgot to notify me
Also reminder that with Royal Mail any package that is considered undeliverable to you will be sold at their personal auction.
hey, that ain't the pic I upload.
I rarely see daki posts in these threads. Are daki collectors really that rare? I'm interested in collecting them myself in the near future.
>WF in 2 weeks
Anyways, for the figma line, I only expect to see Idolshit, Panzershit, Mikushit, and one or two 'interesting' figs.
About time, how hard is it to put a box in a box and give it to some dude.
> CMs Corp Horo
She's still around 14-15k yen on Amazon JP. Not actually that hard to get.
No I don't like it
And yet, Saber has less figures than Tamaki.
So there may still be hope yet.
Do you know if there are any website that gives regular infomation regarding Re-releases?
Why is this thing so fucking hard to get?
>Japan only Selling event
What the hell Good Smile?
Her legs seem strange
A lot fewer here than collect figures and figma and wall scrolls, yes.
Challenge mode for you: Start with Stylus.
When two people choose the same picture or the picture has a filename identical to the other, it will automatically choose another picture in your folder instead.
Or atleast that's the rumour.
>being new enough that you feel the need to explain
What's the point.
I hope it hits the bargain bin, if it doesn't look like an utter piece of crap I may consider it
No way I'm preo-ordering that, though.
Uh~ where did you get her, Anon?
She should be available on GSC after Wonderfest.
>I only expect to see Idolshit, Panzershit, Mikushit, and one or two 'interesting' figs.
That's why it's fucking nothing, anon. It's been Miku and Saber since the very beginning and now there's more Idol/Sonico/GuP shit.
Only hard to get early, I think.
If I understood it right, the second or third batch (or what it is) will be widely order-able. But you still might want to be fast.
None, re-releases are rare things.
Griffon does it again
>hard to get
Just wait until she's up on GSC's shop dude, and order your three.
boobs are too small for Hibiki
It has nothing to do with being new.
He was acting confused, so I replied.
>if it doesn't look like an utter piece of crap
You NEVER need to pre-order Griffon. You can always get it after release at a lower price.
Which you didn't need to do because he wasn't acting confused in any way, and if you weren't this new you'd know that everyone knows what's going on with the picture swap glitch.
I think the problem is with your not liking Miku/Saber/Idols/Sonico/GuP than the manufacturers.
The company that does the auctions is called Wellers by the way, and they do online auctions. If there's someone in the UK that's bored, have a look through their catalogues and you might find something.
Yeah, that's pretty much the catch.
The prototype looks bad enough as it is.
I hope something gets announced at WonFes, I really hope.
Yeah, I've been looking at amazon. Their shit really hits the bin hard.
>It's been Miku and Saber since the very beginning and now there's more Idol/Sonico/GuP shit.
Jesus christ you people are new
Nah, it's the manufacturers.
Nope, I don't have that muslim pic on my pc at all...or are you implying Wo-chan is a muslim?
Seems to me like a bigger markup than what happened in Japan.
MFC's user sales are also cheaper, though those are obviously used...
You can't expect much from people who hopped into the hobby around the time the buyfag generals started, anon.
oh my goooddddddd
I will never forget all those fucking to heart 2 and onegai teacher figures for as long as I live. How they can come up with new shit for tamaki and mizuho to wear I don't know.
The fact that he replied to his own message is confirmation enough that he was acting confused.
No matter what, I don't want to discuss it.
> I don't want to discuss it.
Too bad retard. He wasn't confused.
Mnadarake has it in stock for a decent price....It's broken.
> 'male figures don't sell'
It's not like it's hard to pre-order them, right?
They're still getting more.
The fact that people whine about all these franchises getting shit is just an indicator that they're new to the hobby.
I know, which is why I'm amazed. I mean surely they've already done figures of them in every outfit under the sun, I don't know they can keep coming up with new ways to recycle the same old trash.
But I need more Fate, you can never have enough Fate.
Don't worry, Alter will make a pirate version. Right?
Yeah I know I overpaid, but I rationalized myself up to it. I've wanted her for awhile and since I don't really plan on getting anything until Dragon's Crown Elf in June I bit the bullet.
Some are considered too expensive by many at the time pre-orders start, and when they turn out good they're only more expensive.
And they still didn't sell that much.
>Don't worry, Alter will make a pirate version. Right?
I never even bothered to watch the show, but I want one
It's not *that* bad. Maybe $10-20, only a drop in a bucket of potentially lost money on shipping expenditures, inefficient order combinations, and so on...
Either way, I'm just informing the other Anon of some cheaper options.
Looking good. Will probably buy.I don't even know the character. But how could I possibly go wrong with a black big-titted chick in a tiny bikini & fishnet stockings...?
Well, it depends on the manufacturer in the end.
I agree that Benten is way too overpriced, though. That said, the Alter's Hayate was kinda overpriced for its size too, so I'm afraid that's just the general direction where the price is going now.
Although, why buy it? It is a depressingly dead Caska with "not best" Guts. Dem feels aren't too positive?
That's not a fishnet stocking, is a garter.
>'male figures don't sell'
It seems companies only in the last 5 years finally notice that GIRLS WANT TO BUY FIGURES TOO. And that they sell well.
Oh gosh... She was only 3670 yen on Amiami.
My boner couldn't resist those childbearing hips
Oh, good lord Homunculus. You make me happy to throw my money away.
It's about time I quit buyfagging.
This is cute.
Wrong. It's about time Griffon stop making figures.
Ofcourse they sell well.
Who doesn't want to own a Guts? Or a Bridget?
I must say, I can barely recognize it as Griffon.
They've gotten better, not great, but better.
Guys, the meme is getting old.
> I agree that Benten is way too overpriced, though.
My guess: He'll probably get *still* more expensive after release.
> I'm afraid that's just the general direction where the price is going now.
That's probably the case, too.
Fuck this new world where everything is 20% more expensive.
There are more Strike Witch characters than Touhous, and I'm not stopping until all of them get made.
I believe it was a stream or during Wonfes where MF/GSC said 'Male figures don't sell.'
I was just referencing, seems no one remembered that stream.
That's the promo type anon, lots of Griffon prototypes have looked a lot better, just wait to see how shit it looks on release and your lack of faith in Griffon will be restored
And just when you think it's over...
A garter? Couldn't tell from that bad picture (still can't really tell).
Well, that's not bad either, but -for my taste- not quite as good.
I would buy that just to have something next to my Sader.If I ever manage to get my hands on a Sader
>Couldn't tell from that bad picture (still can't really tell).
Do you have bad eyesight? It's easily visible that it's a garter.
You know, as much as it is Griffon, I kinda agree.
To be fair they've gotten a lot better, they're nowhere near GSC/ALTER/Megahouse etc, but they've gotten better.
There is no reason to keep beating the dead horse.
Practically the whole set up to now is pretty cheap.
I was thinking of using parts from the sonico, miku, and saber figmas to make the ultimate cashcow figure. Also, where are those wings from?
I wish I could make a custom waifu popular enough to get her own merch.
I wish they'd done a proper Kasumi.
I've been looking for an excuse to use this.
>they've gotten better
Bargain Bin Goddess.
I didn't even watch the show and I know she doesn't look like that.
You can have a custom daki printed, or a bunch of other things that are printed.
I know mate.
But in all honesty they've gotten better, even with something as simple as painting.
I'm not saying they're a great manufactor, or that they're even remotely viable, just that they've gotten better.
None of my USALs have been Cumstormed but both times I've EMSed they have gone under. Only go EMS if you really need the speed for some reason or can stomach paying tax.
Oh wow that's great.
Absolute fantastic, somebody make this a thing.
>There is no reason to keep beating the dead horse.
When they push out shitty figs, yes it is.
Who is excited?
I chuckled at the bright orange fuck up.
Let me just stress that I'm not defending Griffon by any means, they're just as shitty in my world as in any others, but when you compare their recent shitty figs to their old shitty figs, you can't deny that they've atleast got a little better.
Who the fucking think they got better?
>you can't deny that they've atleast got a little better.
They haven't even gotten a little better.
Well, I must disappoint you. I don't even know the source material.
Go read it, faggot. It'll be a fun ride.
If you think Griffon has improved then you're either new as fuck, blind as fuck or you've got one of their figures ordered and you're trying to reassure yourself.
Still the best looking Griffon figure to date.
what time and where would I be able to preordered it.
at this point i really cant say no to my penis anymore
>It'll be a fun ride.
Suffering isn't fun. Age isn't fun.
She's up at BiJ . And should be officially up 2 hours from now.
How does it feel being poison?
Wow, they actually messed up the fig by pulling the curves too hard instead of flattening them out. That's a new one.
Amazon.jp ships games internationally too, right?
Honestly I don't feel the need to go
and that's an accomplishment in itself.
Well, I'll probably "read" the events from the eroge at some point...
It's just Griffon connecting more with the source material by H.P. Lovecraft than the Animu in general does.
No full painted pics yet?
Fuck you, Griffon
I thought it was full of suffering.
Care to spoonfeed a anon on how many there is and the order of playing them?
Ass status: blasted
How the hell do they get away with this stuff?
You would think that if you're in this sort of branch as manufactor, the least you can do is get your shit together and deliver a well made product.
They pick and produce figures faster than anyone else, effectively riding the hype/popularity train, that's their (shitty) sales model.
I lost sleep and had trouble at work while reading it, but the experience as a whole is worth it. It's the same kind of "fun" you'd get playing horror games, I guess.
I have no fucking clue why but I want this cup.
Preorders are over so what are the chances of somewhere in NA selling it once they're out?
Griffon have learned that Quantity over Quality is better, because it'll earn them more moneys.
>someone in NA selling Arpeggio stuff
It's a baller ass cup, subtle as well.
I'd buy it too.
There aren't very many of us, but we're here. It's pretty much the most expensive buyfag, so not really too surprising.
I just got two covers in today: Rei's room Iku and Joker Type's Kotori. Was a bit bummed out to find out Kotori was suede, but I only paid 10k for her so I guess it wasn't that bad.
>I lost sleep... while reading it
>MFW playing until four in the morning because I couldn't put it down after CHOMP
>Griffon and Bootlegs
Man, why are doujin dakis often better and cheaper?
Vector it and get it made on the cow of the arts.
> somewhere in NA selling it
Probably somewhere at some point. Like eBay. Wanna pay out of your ass?
If not, how about just ordering it from Japan?
I managed to read up to when takeru goes to the reactor thing with Yuuko to go back. That part was good.
Am I cursed to Y!A?
That'd be my last option.
I just don't understand their thought process, did they really look at that in think that there wasn't something going wrong?
And I'm laughing at all the retards saying that is happens to everyone.
>It's pretty much the most expensive buyfag, so not really too surprising.
... not really.
It's cheaper than buying Madoka things, and cheaper than the Dolfies and such.
You probably never paid >$600 for a single daki, right?
Why must you remind me that stupid people exist?
I come to this little bubble to hide from retards. Stop bringing them in here.
How many of you guys actually own 1/4 scale figures?
If not would you ever buy one?
There are only so many dakis of mai waifu.
We're talking about someone who thought that $200+ for a figure was standard pricing.
Kill touhoufags, save us from griffon
A bit of rage a day keeps the retards at bay
How did they go from thinking $200 was fine to thinking that $2.50 was?
Best daughter and most courageous.
A $200 figure by Griffon, at ebay
Worst and least courageous.
Painted at wonfes hopefully
Tharja is better.
Atleast they're nice bootlegs.
He shouldn't worry about Griffon touhoes, they'll all be re-released soon enough, as a 1/10 scale.. Fucking ripoff.
I find it highly humorous that the only two from that line up, are the ones not sculpted by a Griffon sculptor.
The most horrible part of this is everybody in the comments empathizing with him rather than laughing at him.
But Tharja isn't daughter and best mom is female MU.
I feel your pain.
not recent,but still...
Can't hurl those hateful words anon, you might offend someone.
Doujin covers mostly cost much more than official ones.
But yes, the official really looks plain compared to AcHobby's.
Do you happen to know what 4-way tricot is? All I've ever seen is 2-way but Sol International has some 4-way ones and I'm not sure of the differences between them.
Tsundere a best.
And *still* considering if I buy this pretty expensive recast.
Twice as lewd.
reminds me that i told my ex to buy me nickelodeon and vovnich on her trip to Japan and she ended up keeping them and now i'll never see them again
Spoilered for blogshit
I have these three.
It boggles the mind how small they would be at 1/1
>The number of censored cards is about 40 out of the approximately 350 card images available in the game. This means that over 300 cards are left untouched from the original images.
>This was a very difficult decision since we work very hard to satisfy our fans and want to bring the same content being offered in Japan. However, Western society is not as lenient as that of Japan when sexual images are involved—especially images of humanoids that appear to be younger than a socially acceptable age. The borderline of what is “acceptable” will always be extremely gray and vary from person to person, but as a responsible company working in the U.S., we had to make the difficult decision that we did. We sincerely apologize for those who do not agree with any level of censorship, but we greatly appreciate your understanding with the decision we have made.
[Rubbing Doesn't Intensify]
>VHS CCD Video
This is a blast to the past.
... or the newer one with dat giant lance and transparency, but somehow slightly less satisfying face.
/v/ pls just buy the Japanese version.
I've considered it it a few times and there's plenty out there that do go for 600+ even without proxy fees (if you can even find them) so I don't really see the comparison with Madoka goods because not all of them are ridiculously priced.
I suppose you do have a point; it all depends on how much you actually spend, but I find it much easier to spend 2k in a couple weeks on dakis than dollfies since there tends to be a lot more coming out.
'Murricans will be 'Murricans.
Atleast I can import this shit.
It's 2014 and they're still doing this.
I can't believe it.
>people are just now caring about this game
>people are only interested/care about it because it's making news
Japanese version has been out for a while now.
I play rubbing games for the plot, and I don't speak moon
Could you possibly link me to those comments. Would like some extra context here.
Pretty sure most of the interest is because it's getting localized, which was quite hard to begin with, not just because of the censorship news.
When I look at their dakimakuras, I always see multiple different alterations of the same kind. How does ordering from them work? I might be interested once they put their stuff back up.
Really? These could almost all be passed as swimsuits.
>Pretty sure most of the interest is because it's getting localized,
>>>people are only interested/care about it because it's making news
I did include that. Sort of.
OR just the recast of it, depicted here.
Now here's the kicker and how it relates to your question: I certainly don't think I like a 1/4 scale more than a 1/8, I just like the design...
What's their website?
Then you are just stating the obvious, a game gets localized and people care about it, WHAT A TWEEST.
Looking forward to this. Not that far out thankfully.
People actually requested that the game get localized, if I recall correctly. I'm not sure where, though.
What? A good number of those don't even look underage. I can almost-- ALMOST-- understand the loli censoring, but we've had tits in videogames forever. What are they doing?
Google is your friend anon.
NISA's website, IF ended up getting localizing it though.
Was the company actually facing any scrutiny about the release or was this pro-active on their part? Just wanna know if it's a case of angry soccer moms ruining the fun or just the company pussy-footing.
Idea Factory are relatively new in the western market and not well versed on how far they can go. So most likely they are playing it safe for the time being.
> there's plenty out there that do go for 600+ even without proxy fees
I don't recall seeing many new Dakis with that price tag. Are you talking about the older ones?
Like the Stylus bondage lolis or such (minus the one that just got a reprint)?
> I don't really see the comparison with Madoka goods because not all of them are ridiculously priced
... uh, neither are Dakis?
Good to know. I've essentially left the Western gaming market at this point, so it makes no difference to me, but it's always good to keep up with these things.
>Not keeping your meat in the fridge
OP has good taste
I don't want to hear muffled but steady pounding noises coming from my beer fridge in the middle of night, no thanks.
Original Phat Caster is better.
As far as I know it's the same type of knit, just being referred to in 2 different ways. Since 2WT stretches in 2 perpendicular directions, saying it stretches 4 ways is just an extension of that.
What part of that character design is even a skeleton? No creativity whatsoever.
IF-chan is a good girl
I was thinking of getting the Phat Caster now that this one is released. The bondage getup just doesn't do it for me.
Why is this not a gif?
The bone hair clips?
NISA was the company that brought that though.
She's just a skeleton with meat attached to her.
Pretty sure nobody said otherwise, that doesn't change the fact that If from Neptune IS Idea Factory's mascot and self insert character.
I assumed it was a vague reference to the fact that IF had another work already released in the west without any censoring.
The flowerpot was tacky as fuck.
>my Mandarake order comes in
I have a lot of experience importing stuff.
But I haven't used SAL PARCEL enough times to know if the rate difference with EMS is significant.
2-way means you can stretch it in one diagonal direction. 4-way means you can stretch it in the other diagonal direction (turn 90 degrees) as well.
4-way stretch fabrics are what's used in leotards and swimwear that need to stretch crazily.
>its too lewd to display
>stays in its box on the bottom shelf next to the other lewd thing I can't display
>I have a lot of experience importing stuff.
Yet you can't think on a site that has a handy chart showing a comparison of the multiple shipping options.
Fuck I want this
jungle-scs.co.jp is claiming that Japan doesn't offer Sal Small Packet shipment to Denmark.
So they tacked some 3500 yen EMS solution onto my package and asks me to pay.
(despite the fact that Amiami ships SAL small packet to me all the time)
What should I do?
I have a mail forwarder in USA, and it might actually be cheaper to ship SAL to them, then airmail to my house. Instead of EMS.
It will be cheaper to split a SAL parcel down into SAL Small Packets if you're willing to wait that long to receive your package anyways. Otherwise, upgrade to EMS, there's barely any price difference.
okay what the fuck that wasn't the picture
Why do so many people come in here to lie about obvious shit?
They can't do RSAL I assume
What the fuck, it did that glitch crap or whatever the fuck happens when two images get switch on 4chan.
T-that's lewd, I think.
>Starting from 16th December 2013, we are no longer be able to ship orders with Registered SAL small packet to the countries listed below due to the effectivation of Doha Agreement by The Universal Postal Union.
>AUSTRALIA, GREENLAND, DENMARK, GERMANY, NORWAY, HUNGARY, FINLAND, POLAND
You are late to the party
I stopped by kinokuniya yesterday and picked these up. Trigun was on clearance and I have the second omnibus coming from amazon. I actually bought another copy of OPM Vol 5 to debind and scan, but I haven't done that yet.
There's a website devoted to daki scans linked in the guide
That looks like a funny figure.
the image server is being retarded
Damn, I didn't know that. Thanks for the info.
I was starting to get really suspicious of that site.
No I don't know what happened but I had to convert the picture and re-post it again >>100815465
Okay, you can be my nigger.
I don't get how people can instantly recognize artwork just from bits and pieces of it
That's a really iconic piece.
fuck why is everything in this fucking thread reminding me of my ex /blogshit
It's the same as being able to recognize a car by the headlights.
>he doesn't like presenting
Protip: Nobody needs to blog. Ever. Spoilering blog shit does not make it acceptable in any fashion.
I really can't tell cars apart except by their color
GO GO GO
I sniffed one of my figures the other day and she smelled like ass.
reminded me of my ex haha xd so randumb
Nope, don't want.
James why are you so slow?
>GO GO GO
NO NO NO
That's not from amiami.
So I don't suppose this will enhance my daki experience, I mean I'm not going to be stretching my waifu in 3 different directions
>Persona 3 shit and Atelier shit
go back to /v/
It doesn't matter.
>Want to build Gunpla
>Nervous wreck and probably fuck up hard and ruin it
Gunpla isn't hard to put together, is it?
Should matter when the image IS from amiko, actually, nobody said that she was JUST up.
>Amiami is the only place to buy figures from
>Order $200 figure
>"We forgottu to paintu this figuroo. You paint for us yes gaijin?"
>There are still people who defend Griffon
That's baby work, on the other hand painting it is...
You shouldn't see much of a difference unless you enjoy tying your daki into a knot or doing extreme bedtop sports.
Great reading comprehension dude, absolutely great.
>doing extreme bedtop sports.
Guess I need the 4-way then
You are the same retard that argued about something equally retarded a few days ago, right?
Tama-nee is a healthy girl.
Sister ordered it for my birthday, but it won't be released until the 28th of February.
I was thinking about getting the 1/4 Eucliwood Hellscythe but you know
I might reconsider if it bargain bins
Whats the name of this?????
People know when AmiAmi updates.
>Shinobu fig already sold out on amiami
Im gonna cry in a corner now.
I'd collect them if all the ones I want weren't exclusives or doujin event only, like that Amy one up there, or those sweet sweet Takane iM@S ones...
It's only like $5 more on Kirin
Aren't GSC's or CR's also good deals for her?
>Hello, Thank you for this information. We will see with the staff and regularize the situation. Please accept our apologize for this inconvenience.
>Hello, We will check with the financial service and regularize this situation. Please accept our apologize.
Just give me my voucher. It should not be this hard.
Is EMS considered priority express mail? Because USPS claimed it was delivered a few days ago and that it was signed by me, but I never got my PVC at all.
What's GSC's? I know Crunchies is $80 which is more than Kirin.
She was never re-released in Amiami as far as I know.
They were accepting pre-orders the other day...I think.
GSC's is $80, CR has a limited time offer at $62 but upfront payment.
Holy fuck thats cheap, how long will that last?
It started yesterday and only 3 hours left.
We all know is that, you fuck up, sir.
Welp, time for my first buyfag.
I'm seeing one for $60 and the one I want for $80 on crunchy.
No chart factors dimensional weight in.
I was hoping for an answer from someone that has experience with same dimension packages on both parcel and ems.
Too bad I only got answers from shitposter-tan.
The charts are expressed in volumetric weight, retard.
That's not the Shinobu figure being re-issued.
I never mentioned the re-issued, but ok I see what you are talking about now.
Show how much you know, oh mighty experienced importer.
How bad is CR's shipping? Is the $62 price at 20% discount good against GSC's 2000 yen flat shipping rate at 8000 yen.
Is this inferiority complex a thing in these threads?
Using a different shipping option does not change the shipping tier your package is labeled, it's the same weight.
No, but trying to show off when you have not even a clue of what you are talking about and only fueling your retardation is looked down.
My guess is that's a bootleg, because fuck if the people at crunchyroll know aht they're doing.
>I have a lot of experience importing stuff
>but have never experienced how big or heavy something is
Depends on where you live. There should be a shipping estimate before you check out, the page after your cart.
Ignore this retard who doesn't know what he's talking about, >>100817955
It's the same as GSC's, just be aware they ship a couple of months after the figure is released.
If it was >>100817576 I'd buy it.
Just buy it, faggot.
Oh the Irony
No, /v/tard. You should.
Hey this is actually better than GSC store, I don't mind the one month delay if it saves $20,; now my only concern is if the shipping is safe. 3 years buyfagging and never used UPS for figures.
I'd get her but the upfront payment shit is a huge turn off
Good anon, good.
USPS to my experience is pretty good. I have a nice glass enclosure around my front door where they usually leave it inside. Which is frankly my only issue since packages have never been damaged. I live in a nice enough neighborhood and know my neighbors so nothing's ever been taken.
Although, I'm not too sure about this, I think Crunchyroll is only a middleman. They don't actually receive and ship out the figures, but rather they place your order for you and the package is shipped from the supplier to you directly.
>These items are all brought to you by a variety of difference vendors that we have partnered with. As such, each vendor has their own shipping methods/policies which can restrict the items to only be shipped in certain areas. So unfortunately you will only be able to purchase items through certain vendors that ship to your country.
It seems that several people cancelled their order with GSC and placed their pre-orders on CR, despite GSC's no cancel policy.
They're so nice.
I thought GSC had upfront payment too?
No, they just authenticate and place a pending charge on your payment method.
Payment happens when the item is shipped, or about to be shipped.
I typically pay up front.
Forfeiting those like ... 1%-2%(?) interest on my money is better than getting hit with unexpected exchange rate fluctuations.
anon I work at ups and I would suggest never using ups for something fragile like a figure. I can only home fed-ex and the usps treat shit better than we do.
I know what you're talking about.
The biggest gap in quotes of Parcel and EMS I've gotten is 2000 yen.
As you may be aware, it just depends on who's packing it really and if they add the parcel surcharge.
How scared should I be if I plan on ordering this? I live in Canada.
She is fully dressed, where is the problem?
I don't recall Canada being one of the countries that made *any* depictions or statues of younger people a problem.
>How scared should I be if I plan on ordering this? I live in Canada.
You should be scared about even considering importing a single thing, while not knowing customs. IT'S. FINE.
Anyone got this baby?
i placed 2 orders on mandarake for different listings of the same item by accident. will they ban me for cancelling one of them?
Yes. Take responsibility and pay for them both.
Sure. She's good.
Hard to say which Ruri is best, but she can compete...
I-Is that hartnir???
I've been thinking of getting that or the momo that just came out..
I think i'll pick up the kuroneko because for some reason it really clicks with me everytime I look at it feels kinda good.
Just sell the extra. You can surely get at least an additional $10+ out of MFC users.
Yes and yes.
Grabbing both is the best solution, but if you can't afford that, go with the one that you find more interesting.
Alright, I'm 100% convinced.
Gonna go out and pick her up later, I feel so giddy for some reason it just looks so nice.
Resize your pics anon
You can't, because the shipping fees will kill any chance of breaking even.
Nice bike anon, resize your pics
Then raise the price.
HA HA OH WOW
Crunchyshit sells figures?
No wonder the kind of newfriend funposters on these generals.
Still fucking want.
What? They Have good good deals when they offer discounts and most of the time you can get stuff from there that's sold out from popular sites.
> under 2MB
Get a better machine / browser?
Do it man, she is lovely
Sorry about that, I choose the large one by accident.
Get a functional brain and learn what etiquette means.
Thanks, I have two.
>still a big picture
Read the guide, you horrendously new faggot.
where the fuk r u
I didn't know Native was native to PIECE OF SHIT PAINT JOB territory
Damn this looks cute I want to get it, although I've never seen the series.
Should I get to it?
4chan enforces image size and dimensions, so we should go by that. Simple.
Or go by what doesn't make you look like a giant entitled faggot
Is it a cute figure of Seiba? If yes, then yes. So yes.
Yeah no, you are mixing enforces with "allows up to". It's common sense to resize a pic, specially when the pics quality is utter shit.
Hmmm Beaver with see-through shirt.
We resize our pics, simple. Either do it or prepared to be bashed, or just go and post somewhere else where they allow your faggotry.
The scale is so plain...should have given her a lion plush.
>Dat huge image
Or you can pay common courtesy and not act like a retard.
>4chan enforces image size
Look up what 'enforces' means.
Sample pic look great for Aoshima.
>I've never seen the series.
Please keep it that way and read the VN instead.
Entitled to what? Posting image sizes as permitted by the board?
Trying to stick with global rule 6 and posting high-quality images?
Stop being entitled yourself; you just don't get to apply your wild preferences on my posts.
Now, I'm back to buyfagging, go convince someone else.
Well it does capture the in-game art nicely at the least.
Anything on her price?
"I don't need my binoculars to see that you are a gigantic faggot"
OH SHIT FINALLY A KAREN FIG ALL MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRU-
>Not pirate version
Oh well this is still great, let me click the thumbnail and take a lo-
Okay, I will get to it.
>I'm going to post fuck huge shit quality images
>it's not my job to resize them for you, you should be glad that I post them at all!
>Trying to stick with global rule 6 and posting high-quality images?
>Large resolution = high quality
> high-quality images
High resolution grainy shit does not equal high quality, you gigantic piece of shit.
I was actually upset.
I mean, how can someone allow this to happen?
1/7 scale, 22cm. 9,180yen, release in June.
>like large images because I like to clearly look at individual parts of a figure as opposed to the entire thing
>can't post them because "courtesy"
>Large resolution = high quality
Holy shit, why do you think you're above reading the guide and actually having buyfag etiquette.
Go back to MFC, you self-entitled faggot.
>B-but I read 4chan's rules! I'm a veteran!!!
>I like to clearly look at individual parts of a figure as opposed to the entire thing
Then take a picture of the individual part instead of zooming into sections of the whole figure
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
You will not regret having a Seiba to brighten up your day!
You'd best get to reading the VN, though. Make sure you get the most recent Realta Nua patch.
>Best destroyer after poi
Want, I hope she gets some 20% or higher discount.
>like large images because I like to clearly look at individual parts of a figure as opposed to the entire thing
The best part is that not a single one of your pictures are anywhere near clear enough.
>I like it so you should too
I haven't posted anything though.
>I don't like it so you can't
Zoom in on the particular part or look it up on MFC, you dense fuck.
>I'm really smart! Why doesn't anyone listen to me??????????
>I haven't posted anything though.
then my mistake
>I don't like it so you can't
Nobody likes the giant resolution images, and anyone who posts them is just lazy.
>>I don't like it so you can't
>Doesn't understand buyfag etiquette
>Still hasn't read the guide
Just leave already.
The only preview picture which isn't too lewd.
Wait which one do I start?
Also do I use batoto to read them?
Just go haywire
It might be because of the lightning but the face doesn't really look good in that pic.
Fate/Stay Night, and no.
time to get arrested
Lacks a bit of definition on the face, but is fine otherwise.
It's a VN, visual novel. Install it, install translation patch and realta nua patch for voices. Or you could be lazy and get it from fuwanovel.
The color scheme isn't actually bad
A lot better than the teaser picture made it look.
Ah, okay thanks!
Did that giant Houki IS Statue from Ami Ami Zero ever come out in the end?
I had Koto's Vash and Wolfwood sent from Kirin via UPS and they arrived fine. Probably depends on where you live, though, just like every other delivery service.
>2014/01/23 : in an effort to centralize messages, we have disabled the following email addresses : email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send all messages to email@example.com from now on.
Don't listen to F/SN faggots.
Having F/SN as your first VN is a bad idea.
Take it from a VN expert like me and play Symphonic Rain, instead.
It isn't as long as F/SN but it is one of the top VNs of all time according to Japan's VNfags.
Ordered my Tohka Nendo from them and they just shipped it out today via FedEx even though it said USPS when I placed my order a few months ago.
Symphonic Rain is pretty top-tier, but I'm curious as to your reasoning why FSN is a bad babby's first.
So Symphonic Rain then F/SN?
All I suggested was that he read the VN instead of watching the anime, which is definitely what he should do. If he was looking for VN recommendations I could've given him a lot of things.
I also picked her up at that price, a great deal. Now just waiting for Hitagi so that my order can ship.
For those waiting for more pics
do whatever you want
Because F/SN is overly long and not something a beginner should handle.
It would be like me telling a VN newfag to play the ultimate holy grail VN masterpiece of all time, YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world.
My first was Katawa Shoujo.
Not even baiting.
Dude, play Demonbane first.
Looks nice. Did you just get her?
>best Estelle will never get a scale
I swear you people are just doing this on purpose now.
F/SN is long, but the thing about it is that material like that only requires an attention span that your average ADD sugar junky could put out. Well, outside of the cooking scenes. Anyway, it's long but constructed in a way that makes it newfriend Friendly. I think I played Tsukihime and F/SN as my firsts and didn't have a problem tearing through either. Come to think, I'm not sure I've ever read of someone losing interest in F/SN partway through.
Probably not, but you can always hope for some GK scale.
Obviously that shitposter is
I hadn't even noticed. Again, she looks good, though.
ah, this was a month or two ago. quite a steal at $55 shipped on ebay
I've never bought anything from AlphaMax, how good are their scales?
>C85 Elin peroxpero up on sadpanda.
Is anyone making the Bingo sheets for WF 2014 Winter?
I feel like we can have a few good ones this time. Free space is KanColle or Sonitits.
>buy a Drossel from some dude
>he shipped in on the 21st and gave me the tracking number
>it still says it's in pre-shipment and the only status is "electronic shipping information received"
What does this mean? Is it lost?
Ass looks bad.
>Make sure your pictures are under a megabyte or 1000x1000 at the most
Can we change this to 600x600? It's clearly not working as it is.
One of the best, if not the best, detailing-wise. Also soft.
Oh Jesus, this is too much.
WAY, Way too much.
That means either USPS carriers along the way are shit at scanning and uploading the info or the package hasn't even been picked up at all. "Electronic Shipping Information Received" means that a mailing label has been created and that's it.
When USPS picks up the package, the first time will be shown as "Pick up by carrier" or "Acceptance".
Looks like typical Oyaributt to me.
That said, from where to where is the packaging going?
I fucking wish they fire those lazy fuckers, they make worry so much.
Yup, that's really not bad.
I always like dem tight suits, anyhow.
>Right after Estelle.
I really hope it's just shit scanning because I don't want to be out 95 bucks, even if the package is ensured
From California to Arkansas, the shipping info I see shows that he chose to go for 2-day shipping, so I assume it'll be here tomorrow since he shipped it on the 21st, but it was late when he did it
whoa, that's a really nice asuka. i'll have to think about saving up for her sometime. that's the kotobukiya one right?
I think it could be more? You don't even have to look for too long in Japan...
Is that a Kirishima figure? If so, first time I see a figure of my favorite ship besides Shimakaze.
Last year's release, still quite easy to get.
There's something off about her (other than paintjob), lacking detail, the eyes seem too bright. I was really hyped for her ever since I saw that prototype, she was my next holy grail of lewd after Margit, but now I'm not sure if I want to order her.
Any chance Native will fix the messy paintjob at the very least?
>Any chance Native will fix the messy paintjob at the very least?
I'm not sure that's messy.
But no, there probably won't be any major changes now.
Does anyone own this?
Is it worth the price?
That was asked just a short while ago.
Yes, it's worth the original or current (lower) price.
My bad, on phone and hate the formatting so didn't check thread.
Don't worry, it was probably in a different thread, anyhow.
More something to search for in the archives if you care, than anything else. [I don't think you should have to read everything...]
Either way, just go buy her if you like Madoka - she is nice.
I like her and think she's worth the price.
Just be aware that shipping is ~5400.
