Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
That crotch. Also I was worried about the face, she looks damn fine.
>pre-orders start tomorrow
>release in 2014-09
>12850 with bonus
Ahh, poop. Exclusive.
LE bonus is cushion.
So cute and lewd. Best mixture.
Will Kyosougiga be getting nendos?
>tail is cast off
Good, it creeps the shit out of me.
Imagine that tail give you a reach around when doing her.
What's the best way to contact BiJ? I need to modify one of my orders, but it seems they didn't see my comment.
Can anyone vouch for this?
Does anyone here use CD japan regularly? Got a package from them almost a week ago and they still haven't taken the money from my account. I figured it was normal because amiami and mandarake payments will disappear but usually show up again a few days later.
Something about her face still looks off to me.
I think her eyebrows are to far up or the horns are to low but I'm not sure.
This gets asked every thread.
- Head is kind of big
- Crease is annoying but necessary
- Paintjob is fine, neither great not terrible
- Worth the normal price
It can take up to 2-3 weeks for them to take the money.
So what are the chances of Kazuno been release at the end of the month
Sins are so shitty. I hate the way this artist draws breasts aswell
What are people's experiences getting custom dakis from Hobby Heart?
I want to get one but there's something so dodgy about emailing a gmail address for business.
Was consider getting her. But now, I will wait for delicious brown elf.
Fucking finally I can get my QG Noel butt. The original version prices are crazy. Although
I hope you can take off some of those shooting effects, so I can see her ass and face in the same time.
Zero. Look at Alter's website.
figma ranko preorder when?
Trips never lie.
>inb4 hurr durr buying fujoshit scale
By everyone's favorite maker.
fucking manlet, looks so stupid
31st January. Let's see whether he'll sold out instantly.
Hope he sold out quick, so we can all watch the fujoshi tear.
Anyone here have Akira? I've seen some people complain about her, which makes me a little wary of buying her. I really want a delicious brown girl though, is she worth it?
And there will be no one else making scale of this show.
griffon smile company
Other than the tits being bigger than they should be, she's great.
Well she doesn't get the costume but she got the pouty face.
Any idea how much will she cost? 4000? 5000?
I can't tell if I like it or not.
Really well done by Aoshima. The see-through shirt is spot on.
Not exactly similar to the illust but still cute.
I approve beaver, as long as the finished products are the same as promo shoot one.
How do you guys hang your dakimakuras on the wall? Has anyone framed theirs?
Player 2 color incoming.
Only 50 pieces at WF
Mio's re-release has been moved back to the end of January.
I actually really like it. I could do with different colored stockings though.
I think she looks really adorable, especially her eyes, they're really well done.
But I'm not sure Aoshima can pull this off for the finished product.
Looks pretty good.
Ordered so fucking hard.
Satan isn't available to order yet though.
My brother of African descent
Anyone going to get her? GSC version never
Sure, after Archer release.
Cute. Hope the final product holds up well.
I'm still hoping for Suzuya and Kumano to get something. It's be a shame if their designs go unused for scales.
Which will be after Bunny Laura right?
Momo shipped, now just waiting for Dizzy. Was a pretty light month, even though I had to pay for sudden forced EMS for Jubei.
Sure, after black trike release.
All Yamato girls from MH are great, but I prefer her alt color version.
Looks pretty good even though I'm not into 2P colors. They could change the thigh highs as well.
>Ordered so fucking hard.
Why the hate on fujos, a/ ?
Anyway the fig isn't really pretty. I tend to prefer bright colours even on husbandos. They should make more fabulous dudes figures.
There is that pretty over-priced fabulous one, but the base looks like shit...
because most people on /a/ are filthy neckbeards who are into moe-shit and have horrible taste.
Mikatan teaches how to censor figs.
They're two sides of the same coin. It's easy to take out their self loathing and insecurities on them.
They look pretty normal and clean and thin for otakus....
Alpaca will be next, right?
At least they aren't fat like the ones in the US. Oh wait, I'm describing half the US population.
Otacools are usually into fujo.
nah, that's just something they made for fun.
Is she going to be available at KotoUS or Kirin Hobby after WonFes or remain as Japan exclusive?
Oh shit it's finally here.
I love surface mail.
>ship out on November
>Arrive in Jan
Why is GSC streaming? So much for going to bed.
Looks like they're showing off some milky holmes. And revealing sketch nendo's.
Barely got any sleep because of the delivery man.
Post news here...too lazy to watch.
I've been in Japan for a week and soon I'll be leaving, I have question about the shelves. Just bought around 21 figures, How many DETOLF glass door cabins I need for that amount? most of them are scale figures.
all this kancore merch
They have only showed Wonfes exclusives so far.
Boring...where is mah Ranka scale?
Two should be enough.
holy shit it walks that is the most kawaii thing ever
Seems like the little one can move around, heh.
I want one
Ohh, I want both.
Shit, that's pretty kawaii, but will probably cost a ton.
Thank you to the anons that convinced me to get the Kuroneko lolita scale, it's my first ever scale since I've been more of an artbook fag but I'm loving it.
Here's my catch for today, was also finally able to get my hands on the "find yotsuba" book.
The question is do I open the box?
How do I get one and where?
I think I heard 2300?
Im really looking forward to place them at home, got both Enoshima Junko and Noel Vermillion pre orders and a ton of my favorite alter figures
God I want that Tenryuu.
Why does it have to be a WonFes Exclusive ;_;
Very good taste sir
GSC webshop exclusive?
She looks so fat, that smile looks like she's put on some pounds but had to have her body fat removed through liposuction. That face just typical griffonshit
Fucking hell, that's way too kawaii.
Well she does come from America.
>It gets up in the middle of the night and kills you in your sleep.
Cutest death ever.
oh wow that tome.
this is going to be super pricey and the shipping
¥4,629 on GSC's shop
Gotta love 2k flat rate EMS shipping.
3A Metal Gear Ray....
Thinking about completing my holy grail of the artfxj yyh kuwabara figure. Ill try not to slip down that slope.
Fucking hell, that's a nice packaging!
So will this bathing Shimabutt will be available on Ami, or is it going to be a GSC shop exclusive? Can't watch the stream at work.
My saber came today.
was a bit worried due to it being used and the only moon runes i could decipher were an open box.
however for 10,000 I couldn't resist as every time I saw it it was 12,000 - 16,000.
regardless it seems to be in excellent condition.
no signs of hotglue, chips or damaged/missing pieces.
The only thing I can find wrong with it is that the empty hand came loose in the shell (which I assume is due to it being used before).
The thing I love about this most is the attention to her underwear, the delicious saber thighs and pantsu is top quality.
I don't feel bad for just her this month.
Obligatory ransom statement attached.
>27 britbongs for 10k item
You think that is bad?
Laura Bodewig BQ I paid £45.
>£45 for a BQ
You guys have it hard, not only with VAT, but the bullshit handling fees as well.
>only 800 made
Will she be on BiJ/N-Y or should I just abandon all hope already?
next order I'll try to get it from N-Y and see if their not-so-VAT free method will be cheaper considering that I won't have to deal with Parcel Force or international HMRC customs.
The original was 3920x2940.
Unlikely, unless they physically visit WF. your best bet is Y!JP.
Finally got her.
How long does it usually take for amiami to send out a shipping notification after the order status says "shipped" if at all?
Any Australians have experience buying from mandrake, thinking about making an order of doujins.
Great taste for once.
One of my biggest regrets is not buying the RAH Unit 01. It was just so expensive though...
What is the point of hotglueing ?
I can (somewhat) understand one would masturbate to his beloved toys, but what is the point of soiling them and possibly damaging them. ?
I see. In that case, do you have a recommendation for which proxy I should use? I know there's a list in the guide but I've never had to go through one before and would like to know if anyone's had any good personal experiences with any.
FromJapan, always and forever.
Fucking Cinderella girls, I haven't played the game but I'm so tempted for them.
I had mine shipped November 29 by surface mail and haven't received any of it.
In saying that I've had SAL take longer so I'm not too stressed, but still Australia is a fair bit closer to Japan than France.
Anyone know what happened to Suruga-ya too used to buy tons of stuff from them via rakuten and now it seems they don't ship overseas anymore.
Ha ha...ha..ha [breathing extensified]..hah...Haruna.
ohh fuck, misspelled intensified.
tfw they sell her soulcalibur costume as exclusive.
Sounds like bullshit to me, if VAT is 20% and Parcelforce's ransom bill costs £13.50. You either overpaid greatly or are lying, both are pretty pathetic.
Not really AmiAmi decided I needed a box the size of a fridge.
I've said this before.
Anyone get an invoice for Kuroko yet?
vat + import duty
So there was obviously more in the box than just that figure then, meaning the charge wasn't just for the BQ. Why do you feel the need to lie to get attention on an anonymous board?
What, there is no reason to lie?
It's not like I'm going to get 4chan credit for the amount of people that reply to my post.
But sure thing if it makes you happy Sherlock Holmes I was totally lying and you caught me out, well done.
Fuck me, why do best grills always get shit figures?
It's usually immediately, I think. Unless they're having problems with their mail server again.
Such is the curse of Griffon.
Dear god I just want to buy the box, fuck the nendo.
Well what do I do now? Fuck my work, and fuck my family for NEVER answering the door to the postman.
So angry I forgot my image.
You got a slip right? Make sure you're there next time they try to deliver it or pick it up at the post office.
Hi guys, I'm just starting with this hobby and I did take a look at the pastebin so please dont flame me, but I'm wondering if a site exists that uploads pictures of if not all, most of figures that are works in progress, I often see pictures on the frontpage of the board in this thread of unpainted and unreleased modelsdoes such a site where I dont have to search for the figure itself like in MFC's case that will show me work in progress images?
Should have done, can't seem to find it anywhere. Family member probably shoved it away somewhere. I'm fucked since I can't just walk down and pick it up from royal mail, I'll probably just have to drive down the parcelcunt depot.
She also teaches how to make shitty paintjob disappear.
Check the blogs in the guide, and MFC for prototype photos.
is that real, or a shop? if not that paintjob is fucking awful and I feel bad for anyone who pre-ordered with the prototype image.
It can be even worse.
I just got one, literally right now and was about to blogpost about it
>them crazy space hips
>that space butt
She's great. Rsally great, grab ASAP.
Thanks based XEBEC for wonderful space girls.
That ahoge looks like it could fall off. Is it removable or something?
And the rear view
Do you mean her antenna hair?
Yes, it's detachable and there's one extra antenna in the pack in case if you accidentally break it.
But that's front view.
These image swaps have been getting worse.
I'm conflicted at the moment, I'll wait a bit more before ordering.
And the rear view, these are some space buttcheeks.
I had paid an order in advance in AmiAmi more than two weeks ago and they still hadn't shipped it. Today I sent an email saying that, but that I wasn't unhappy with the delay, and can I please combine that order with another one?
>Thank you for mailing us.
>Your order XXXXXXXXX was shipped today
>We deeply apologize for the delay.
Well, that's nice, I guess...?
If I had the dosh I'd get it and if the paint was shitty I'd just resell. She'll still fetch double if not more of her original price in no time.
That is, I am going to get this.
Ordered my custom daki at HobbyHeart.
Nothing dodgy about that email.
They are pretty considerate about the custom daki and fast reply.
Damn, I was bidding on this for 22k but I just got sniped. There is another auction up on YJA for her but for 36k and I can't afford that now. She was also up on Mandarake for 21k but long gone. Are there other places except Manda and YJA where I can look for best KanColle or am I fucked? I really need this.
Well, it killed me with cute already.
No, no, it means the mailing label was created on the 21st. It doesn't mean he definitely shipped it. Definitely would be "ACCEPTANCE" or "PICKUP BY CARRIER" being in the tracking status.
You can easily create and print your own mailing labels with USPS at home. He could've printed it out and put it on the box but hasn't gotten around to giving it to USPS.
What is FedEx doing with my package.
On the bright side, at least it didn't go to Brazil.
I assume that what actually happened was that logistics dictated that it should go to China to catch a connecting flight to the California sort station
Muh afro american brother
This has never happened to you before?
Is this a zombie?
No, it is a necromancer bunny.
It's a shame she only got two covers, both nowhere to be found right now, while someone like Shimakase gets seemingly 50.
I wish they just did a normal 1/8 in her armour.
PREORDERS WHEN AND WHERE.
I WANT THIS SO BAD.
>Surface mail to France
that shit probably went through the Panama canal anon
your figures have seen more of the world than you have
Fedex has the dumbest fucking routing. I had something shipped with them once and my package went from Brooklyn, to Philly, back to New York only to be given to the USPS and be delivered by them. I live in New York, it would've been faster if it was just shipped with the USPS.
But that's completely normal for Fedex and UPS domestic. Both utilize USPS for final delivery if the package isn't a rush job.
I feel the same about Mutsu, who only has like, I dunno that ugly Fatalpulse garbage daki. Give it time.
Is there any website that doesn't require Payment in advance for her?
I didn't know that actually, but that still doesn't excuse the trip to another state when I live right near where it was shipped from.
Are there any good Misaki figures?
All of the ones that I've seen have been mediocre-looking
No, the curse was mediocre figures.
You just answered your own question
The one by Griffon is pretty good.
>Tfw the only one that was close to good looking was a swimsuit figure
I just want her in her casual clothes, is that too much to ask?
I've considered the Griffon and Art Spirits ones, but neither have impressed me enough to order them.
>GSC's Karen is avaiable for the same price for ages
What time can we expect Bel up?
Fuck that's actually true.
Don't make me depressed.
How's honto? I usually go USAL for my figs so I don't think waiting time is much of a problem for books. However, I've heard horror stories where people had to wait months for their books cause honto supposedly prints foreign addresses strangely.
Also, what would be the average weight of a tankobon?
Probably not until tomorrow if you're using a proxy service like N-Y, which I'm going to assume you have to since she's exclusive.
How nice of Ques Q to include a picture for comparison so you can see exactly how shit the figure is.
Average is somewhere between 5oz up to 7oz if it's got nicer paper for pages.
Now that's awful.
The only thing that looks better in the figure is the face shape.
Got money burning a hole in my pocket and nothing pre-ordered until April.
This is my first year newfagging, is January-February always so boring?
Basically. If you look at the guide, you'll see the list of events, and that's usually when new figures are announced. So things should be picking up next month or so.
So, after beaver.
At first I thought those were massive dildos.
I'm actually kinda disappointed they aren't.
It's gonna be shit, isn't it?
Go find something you missed the first time and want. Or you could be a responsible adult and save your money, but who wants to do that?
Oh god that face. She looks cross eyed.
>those cheek peeks
Kantai Collection is actually a very thinly veiled attempt of the Japanese ruling class to re-ignite the Nationalistic spark that Japan had prior to World War 2.
With these little girls bearing the names of legendary ships and battle platforms, they want to remind the younger generation that once upon a time the world feared them, what better medium to do it than anime with cute girls?
If you support Kancolle you're supporting Tojo, don't do it, anons.
>implying you wouldn't use torpedoes to pleasure your boypussy
Managed to snag my grail off a Japanese seller on eBay for $75 total and unopened too. It was a bit of a nice touch that she arrived today since it's my birthday.
Maybe she'll look better painted
THAT LOOKS LIKE A BOOTLEG.
I will buy this.
Oppai is best
Happy birthday anon!
Nah. I'm not getting the Kancolle's anyways, she still looks cross-eyed though.
You'd buy her if she was a futa.
Shitty photography. It was too dark so I edited it, badly.
Happy Birthday, Anon!!!
Wow. Good taste for once.
I wonder how they're going to get her gradient hair right. It seems quite tacky to produce in 3D.
No, not being familiar with the original source would bother me too much.
I always have good taste.
Congratz on surviving another year.
fuck this world
Thank you Noodles. Hopefully this year I can escape a bit richer.
Well that play-arts was disappointing.
Bustah Wolf scale when?
I'd pay out of the ASS for a decent scale with nice effects.
Have any of you pre-ordered Rebellion Blu-ray? Or are people waiting for aniplex usa?
>Scale figure of a dude that actually looks like a dude.
Don't think it's very likely.
Someone is mad over Benten figure.
They don't call them bishoujo figures because it sounds nice.
90% of the market is figures for female characters or that look the part.
I'm not mad, just stating a fact.
Registrated Airmail is surprisingly nice. Arrived in 5 days at my place in Germany and without any customs tax. When I order with EMS my stuff always gets stuck in customs and I have to go pick it up.
And who said dudes should have big muscles and stuff? What's a "real" dude?
Got a new job recently and realized I (literally) have more money than I know what to do with.
Seriously considering that overpriced Hayate scale...
happy birthday, glad you were able to get your grail.
The Griffon one with the coffin looks okay actually, but the craftsmanship is all kinds of fucked up. The pins/holes on the base for the coffin don't align and I had to use force to put the fucking thing on. Then I wanted to put on the face part without the eyepatch and I HAD TO FUCKING CARVE THE FUCKING THING WITH A KNIFE SO IT WOULD FIT INTO HER HEAD HOLY SHIT.
All things considered it does look pretty nice though. I really like her legs and hands and there are only very, very tiny paint fuckups.
Thank you anon!
quit fucking giving them money
I never even said that.
Araragi for example is a guy, not big muscles or anything, but he acts and looks like a dude.
Bridget on the other hand is probably just as built as Araragi is, but he's a god damn girl because he looks and acts like a god damn girl.
It's not as hard as you think it is.
So would Kuroko apply?
looks like a dude to me
To me girls and dudes can act exactly the same.
In real life yeah, but this is Japanese anime we're talking about.
There is a very, very, very marked gender line.
Well that's nice and progressive and open-minded and all that of you. Any other insights you wish to share?
Obviously, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who thinks he actually looks like a girl.
Yeah you're right on this one. There must be some exceptions though, especially since there are way more manga than anime.
>Stop talking about anime on /a/!
Does anyone know the average figure quality for banpresto? I don't hear much about them
They're fine for prize figures.
Why is USPS such a shit
>buy a secondhand figure from a dude
>he drops it off for shipping in the evening on the 21st
>does 2-day shipping, so I assume it'll be here today
>package tracking shows nothing for the past few days
>assume USPS is just shit at scanning packages, since a cursory google shows that it isn't an isolated problem
>see tracking info today
>only just today got processed at their sorting facility in California (where dude is shipping from)
>won't be here until Monday
oh, and also, it was (allegedly) "priority mail."
I guess to USPS, "priority" means "welp, let's take our sweet time"
I answered your original post.
It's not USPS's fault. Your seller guy made the label on the 21st but didn't bother to ship out the package until now.
You can print out a label and have a real tracking number on hand and wait a week before actually hauling your lazy ass to the post office to drop off the package for shipping in some cases.
So it does happen and I think quite often. Regardless if the figures are fujobait or not a lot of them still look like dudes.
In any case, USPS is faster compared to FedEx Home/Ground or UPS Ground. There shouldn't be any shipping delays now except in areas of severe weather.
Your seller is the one who is taking his sweet time actually shipping out the package.
He shipped it out on the 21st, he told me as much, I don't think this guy would lie, it's in his best interest to be as truthful and fast as possible if he wants to get rid of his excess figures like he hopes to.
Did you see the Acceptance or Pickup by Carrier show up for 21st? If not, when? That is the actual time it was mailed out.
He's probably lying, really. I've done so in the past when I got lazy about mailing off something or wanted to wait an extra day to drop off multiple packages at once. The usual excuse I gave to my customers (if I even bothered) was that "oh mail collection happened early today so it'll go out tomorrow" or "mail man never came today".
No, but like I said, USPS not scanning shit is a problem as far as a cursory google shows
I know that, it's a possibility, though usually it shouldn't be that shit for USPS Priority mail and I say this in my experience of shipping out about 500 packages last year.
Nonetheless, I contacted the guy about it, but not in a confrontational way
>Taichi and Yamato due to arrive next week
>check out recent images of their release boxes
>notice the images on the back
I'm glad they're so small as I'll definitely need them all to satisfy nostalgia.
And there goes my pre-order from amazon jp. They wouldn't accept my card.
Really? My debit Mastercard has worked every time for me.
Just sit on it. Everything usually gets pushed towards the end of the year where you will be spending like mad.
>Finally get e-mail from Manda
>placed order 23 days ago
FUCK at least it was in stock.
Hobby search doesn't take payments for reservations upfront, right? I've got a payment processing for them on my bank statement, but its only £1. Do you think its just a foreign transaction fee even though I didn't pay for anything yet?
Holy shit, that's crazy. I usually get a response within 3-4 days; from which store did you order from?
They'll charge you the full amount soon, they charge that to see if your card is legit.
Why the fuck is BiJ support so slow
Nakano on New Years day.
Why is JFK customs such shit? When I lived in Alaska San Francisco would have that shit in and out in about 5 hours every time, but the nig nogs in New York must have their hands on their dicks or something.
The item I ordered is set to be released in January, though.
Try emailing them.
Germany here, is registered Airmail the best alternative to registered SAL?
Might as well EMS at that rate
Not if he can avoid customs with Airmail.
Unregistered SAL all the way.
I use registered airmail all the time. Best option. Decent speed and very rarely gets hit by customs.
Same here, unregistered SAL, no packages lost, no packages damaged.
If the figure doesn't reach you, you didn't need it in the first place.
USAL is the best.
Preorders will open later on tonight around 11pm(4pm 25th Jap time).
Feast your eyes.
As expected of Oreimo fans.
B-But muh limited edition
After the amazing sins we got so far she looks kinda lackluster.
She might end up being the worst sin.
Homu is vegetable
they used the wrong reference
I like her design.
It goes well with her character being Sloth.Lazy demon wearing nothing but socks,panties,& an oversized shirt.It's cute and it's simple.
Yes, but they used the same face.
Pre owned figures Y/N?
Eila came today also no shelf space left.
Just got Momo. Does Max Factory ever disappoint?
Of course not unless you buy figma.
Eila came today also shelf space is non-existent.
Male? Fucking fag.
Becase Yes, no and MALE are fucking related words, right?
Now, can you count up to potato?
Resize your shit, you tremendously huge faggot.
Put up your trip, mexiwhore.
I got my GSC Akane a couple of days ago. She's lovely, I like her far more than I expected to.
kek, because racial slurs sure serve as burn heal.
Try again, kid.
I don't have to try, you already look like a retard, despite your racial handicap.
Fuck off nigger
You have the wrong person , plus, you don't even have to try, you are a retard either way.
Got my first registered Airmail today, no customs tax, very very fast delivery. It took 4 days until I got it from Japan.
He's a beaner, though.
Man I really want to get one and put it somewhere near my drum kit, but they aren't on manda or amiami.
I'm thinking about selling off Juubei and Maeda after I get them, could kind of use the money more than I could use those sluts.
Think they will be in much demand over the next few months?
I gotta ask you /a/, how is Phat in terms of figures looking like the original sculpture? I've heard they're like Kotobukya but i also seen it compared to FREEing and Griffon, what's your take?
Pretty bad lately.
They're getting worse and worse.
So anyother "good" sites besides AmiAmi?
How is shipping from Japan to EU anyway?
Read the fucking guide.
How about you read the guide?
Read the guide.
Worse than Koto. Their sculpts often only have one good angle. Also frequent paint errors and bad colors. They used to be good/fair but lately they've been shit. Their Senran Kagura and Atelier lines have been awful
Oh wow, I'm retarded sorry
I only have Magical Nia and while I like her she has seams in her legs and splotchy hair paint.
First two were good, no idea about the rest.
JFK and LA customs are the fucking worst, they'll sit on those packages for days before they let them go (even if they don't scan or search them).
If you use SAL, then I'd agree, but I use EMS almost every time and it's out of JFK in a day.
Any other sites for buying doujinshi? Checked manda, honto, mangaoh, and yja. Remembered another site that had a name like toranora but that doesnt come up with anything when googled.
I have several and I don't regret it.
I'd say Y
Oh yeah, also checked melonbooks.
Sounds like you're thinking of toranoana.
Toranoana is what you're thinking of
Cheers, deleted my post since the list in the guide had it. I've now checked every single shop that sells doujins, and none of them have the one I'm looking for. God fucking damnit. Damn you, sold out manda listings.
Nagato for 13800 yen, good deal or not?
Many thanks for the replies, i ask because pic related, but i guess i won't risk it with Phat. Just pre-ordered the Elf archer from Dragon's Crown instead.
That's griffon not phat, which is worse.
I'd go for it.
The Chuu2 deformed prize figs are out. Time to start stalking Suruga-ya for them.
Disregard my utter lack of sense. It's Griffon, i shouldn't even have asked.
That's ugly as fuck.
I still haven't received it and my local post office doesn't pick up the phone ever. I paid extra for EMS for fucking nothing.
Welp,I can't find any sites with pic related that are not sold out ;_;
Goddamint, if only I started on the slippery slope sooner
Deformed is the word, jeez.
Got this today. Kinda regret it, the case is really huge and kinda weighs my phone down so it feels like a bother. I don't know if I'll ever use it.
I'm waiting for Aniplex USA. None of the store exclusives were must-haves for me, so whatever Aniplex does will be fine and chances are there will be a translation booklet. Win win.
>tfw your favourite senran is part of the "rest"
They're cute and among the very few chuu2 toys out for now
From the thumbnail I thought it was a female swimsuit.
I know what you're going through, anon.
Anyone have that site/url for the Ami-Ami competitor site that presumably is awesome for Europeans shipping-wise? It was mentioned the other week quite alot.
Read the guide faggot
Read the guide.
Their magical shipping was a lie. A vile fucking lie.
Whoa, what happened?
Nothing was true. It's more expensive than EMS, you have to pay France's VAT to them when ordering, and it can take up to two weeks to get your shit
Time to boycott the dream-crushers.
Actually, it is cheaper if you buy a lot at the same time. It's still a longer wait, though
Am I doing right /a/?
Nope. Good items though, except for the polisher.
What's the thing with J-List anway? Why the hate?
I know Jlist is not then best but I could not find another who was this cheep and that shipped to Europe
Ahahaha I just got my RSAL Jubei from N-Y and the figure box is in so tight I'll have to cut the outer shipping box at the corners just to get it out.
I knew this was gonna happen. Karen looks like she put up a couple of pounds, especially that face. It feels that she got liposuction.
Their quality seems to be getting worse, and they even have a new nendo-like lineup.
kuro inu 4 when
>whole order delayed by a strap
How is this?
She takes up a shit load of realestate on my shelf
yeah she looks like she would. Such a nice figure though
Am I the only Crowds fan buying the animation note book but not the BD?
Well I am a poorfag, can't spend all the budget on one thing.
I'm pretty sure my January order is being held up by this guy.
Good, I guess. Totally not my taste, though.
Do they still undervalue with EMS/Airmail/USAL?
I don't see much reason to change from those if they do, since it works for my country.
She's one of my favorite in terms of detail work. I wish I knew how many times later delayed her.
i can understand that i also bought all the notes too the art book is great by the way
Wait, I though Amakuni finished Beelzebub before Belphegor...
I'm getting her, but still awaiting for the best Sin.
No not the gatcha notes, it's the animation notes, I assume it's a bunch of line art of the actual animation with all the coloring guides, stuff like that.
I like it well enough.
Belphagor turned out not so well, as far as I'm concerned.
Not particularly sexy underwear, few accessories, and the face just doesn't seem all that great.
Waiting for Beelzebub and Satan, too.
Phat Kirigiri, y/n?
No, face is bad and colors clash badly.
Any news on figma Lucina?
Don't really care about figs, so I'm not up-to-date.
That depends on whether you like what you're seeing.
The company being Phat, it'll almost certainly look as promised from a normal distance.
Ah- a genga collection, that's the term I was trying to recall before.
Like this gif.
I bit the bullet and decided to order the Hidamari Graduation artbook, got it for 6000 yen not including shipping and proxy fees.
How would this be for babby's first scale?
I'm attracted by the price tag.
Come on anon, you can do better than that.
She's great, go for it.
Not bad if you like Ruri, but
> I'm attracted by the price tag.
Around 5k yen ish.
But she's so cute!
I'm giving Phat one chance here. Hopefully she will be at least decent.
And it'll still be better than Griffon's attempt.
Get her, I think it's the best Ruri figure.
Alright, if you promise not to buy anything Kirino or Griffon ever, you can have her.
Damn that ass is phat
It's terrible practice, but I don't even like the show. Kuroneko is a top-tier favorite character though.
Kirino a shit
Surely we'll get best racing Meeko figure soon?
More like Kirino AND Griffon.
Everything in and about the show is utter shit
Kuroneko's biggest flaws are being in the show and having that shitty artstyle
>Everything in and about the show is utter shit
Did they shop the paint job to make it look better?
Only person who didn't lust for Kyousuke's cock after the show decided to fuck itself and turn into a harem anime.
Accidentally my post there, meant to quote
So what, are these GSC WF exclusives? I haven't seen them announced anywhere as such.
Saori is best Oreimo, hands down.
The absolute horror.
How can we make it even more disgusting?
Originally I planned to get all the sins but I cannot justify buying Sloth. She is just so ugly and her body type is below shit tier. Same goes for the glutton. It's really such a shame that the two worst are coming out before the best (Satan)
Same here. I was really set on getting the full set and I liked all the illustrations they were based on but I just don't like anything about the actual scale. I guess I'll just have everyone but her which will trigger my autism really bad, but I'd rather spend the money on buying something from my backlog than wasting it on completing a set.
same here waiting on a cleaner cloth
WF please deliver ;_;
I love all the detail in this figure.
I'd buy her but she's 2lewd
I thought Beelzebub was suppose to be before her. Did I miss her?
Need Waifu Heart
My Momo finally arrived. All those damn delays.
>not completing the set
>disliking the lolis
If this was canvas I'd buy it immediately, but it's some cheapo pleather.
Gotta be juicy.
Shit shark pouch wouldn't buy.
come to the jp thread if you want info on good onaho
I have Phat's Caster and she's great, I don't know what people are talking about. Comparable to Kotobukiya.
>going to /jp/
>preorder an Inia fig from "Man of Action Figures"
>the paypal asks for payment right away

Dat fast customer service

>yeah I have enough money for it
>ok, now just to add to cart
why do i not see this before deciding i want something
That happens to me too sometimes, even worse if you really want it.
I don't really like NGE.
not lewd enough
I want to fug Miku.
It's okay if you don't enjoy the superior sound that Miku produces, but keep you're shit opinions to you'reself
Waiting on lewd racing >>100859415
Miku but it will never happen
eta until 'delusional mikufag' displays at local zoos
what are some good art books
the sky by amano original edition
PSG artbook vol 1 and 2
one piece strong world
one piece 10 book
kill la kill setting book
I am considering one piece color walk books and another kill la kill book if it comes out.
Holy shit that is hot, will it really never happen?
I don't like the translucent hair.
you'd better get moving
native miku when?
He's asking you which Caster it is, since there are multiple characters in the Caster class.
I've got a few artbooks:
NGE (Der Mond)
Fate/Extra Material volume 4
I'd recommend any one of them.
Why does this bitch get all the good fanart.
Everything waist-down is trying to turn me on but I'm being turned off by the fact that it's her
>turned off by the fact that it's her
your loss m8
You have autism, anon.
Atelier: Artworks of Arland
Ar Tonelico artbook
any of the Valkyria artbooks
I own Kotobukiya figures which are inferior.
I don't like her either but you have some issues.
Ruining a great voice with nightcore auto-tune earcancer isn't what I'd call 'superior sound' but okay you can have your opinion
She's coming soon, ｒｉｇｈｔ？
most likely the Fate/Extra Caster.
fuck off with this annoying cunt
So are these manufacturers any good?
So you skipped Momo, Olivia, Tsukihi, and Suzuki. You're the boring one.
Don't make me go back that place. The smell is horrible.
Not really. I wouldn't get her, the eyes bother me.
go back and stay back you filthy crossboarder
Apologies if this has been asked before (I'm sure it has) but is there no way to get a hold of Zaregoto book 1 for anything less than an arm and a leg, or a shit ex-library copy someone's kid doodled in? Checked the usual sites and it's at least $60+ for even a damaged copy, $90+ for anything in good condition.
And I'm assuming the 2008 date means they aren't in any hurry to print more.
Thanks for your time.
tsukushi would be the only character to look forward to if she got a good scale
It looks half-assed, in my opinion. There could have been way more detail than that, but it looks like they were lazy.
have you tried yahoo auctions Japan and Amazon Japan?
oh good i thought you meant the shitty girl from henneko
Can you get an English-translated copy from there? My Japanese isn't good enough to be reading Nisio's writing yet.
shit, I didn't think you wanted an English copy. It's not likely that they would have English copies for sale/auction, but it's worth a shot I suppose.
at least there will be two.
Yeah, I figured. Should've known it was a trap that Vol 2 was only $10. Thanks for the help at least.
I can't wait to get those delicious legs in my collection.
Are those stilts really that noticable or is it just the reflection of the flash that is making them stand out more than usual?
Thank you. I appreciate it.
How much longer must I wait?
Pre-ordered. She looked great to me.
Phat essentially always is doing a good job, and will be nice unless you're the type who likes to look too close at the paint job. (There may be a needle-thick scratch / unpainted area or missed line somewhere. If that causes you to rage and hate a figure, Phat isn't for you.)
To "compensate" for that, they have really neat poses and accessories.
>Phat essentially always is doing a good job
Yeah, no. They've consistently fucked up any good sculpts with shitty paint jobs and even worse QC
How's Der Mond? I was thinking of picking up a copy
>always is doing a good job, unless you're the type who likes to look too close at the paint job
Which you should be doing since you are paying a premium for nice quality
Griffon essentially always is doing a good job, and will be nice unless you're the type who likes to look too close at the paint job. (There may be a needle-thick scratch / unpainted area or missed line somewhere. If that causes you to rage and hate a figure, Griffon isn't for you.)
To "compensate" for that, they have a wide variety of characters and they release quite fast.
> shitty paint jobs
Typically really trivial problems, invisible from like 20-30cm distance. [I'm sure there's some examples that are worse, but that's the usual fare.]
> even worse QC
Not really. I just pay for a figure that looks like it does on the pre-order photos.
There typically isn't any problem with that - it just doesn't allow such unexpectedly close-ups like GSC's / Alter's or sometimes MF's precision painting does.
Griffon delivers sculpts that are quite different from what you pre-ordered. The sculpt is different and quite distorted, the colors are very far off and so on and so forth.
Phat's stuff generally looks pretty much exactly like on the pre-order pictures, you just can't necessarily expect to get a great close-up view, and the differences are generally really tiny.
But by all means, if you can't take it, only buy Alter and maybe GSC, or whoever meets your quality requirements.
>colours are very far off
sometimes I wish I could only see b&w when i look at her
I don't understand why people even buy Griffon figs. Are they actually expecting one to be good for a change?
The sculpt looks pretty much the same in that picture.
It's the cheap paint that makes it look chunkier in some places.
Poor Kurumi. I love her so much but she gets saddled with Griffonshit. At least from what I hear with Art Spirits is WYSIWYG.
Sometimes I wonder if people in these threads buy Griffon figs on purpose just to get a reaction out of everyone.
Final product looks like Enma Ai from jigokushoujo.
You have to be genuinely suffering from brain problems to buy Griffon figs.
Desperate idiots. Better off buying beach queens.
You know, the market is quite lacking in good Enma scale.
Yea. Well, she's not the worst case of Griffon, but it's very different anyhow.
The very easily visible differences in terms of sculpt are the hair bands and the fabric at her back.
But you'll certainly spot a lot more smaller things once you start comparing in detail...
>Mailman just throws the package in the driveway when it's raining
Worst part is that we actually have a spot where you can put packages if it's raining.
Think i might just order another being they're piss cheap.
File a complaint to your postal office.
Assuming you live in a decent country, it should be possible to do.
God, that pisses me off so much. Maybe try complaining to the post office or something?
how do you let shit like that go? You can get them in a lot of shit for destroying your mail like that. I wouldn't put up with shit like that
Kill him. Fire him into the sun from whence he shall never return.
How much does maid Laura 1/8 go for nowadays pre-owned?
bowt tree fiddy dawg
Why don't you check manda and find out?
Living in apartment have its perks.
about 5,000 to 7,500.
Hey everyone, I fucked up and order an item that I saw for cheap (2k something yen) but when amiami sent me the bill for it, I discovered that the shipping would be a little under 6k.
Needless to say I dont want it anymore, but cant find where to cancel my order on their site. Could you help me out?
They don't accept cancellations. Eat it.
What the fuck did you order
Take responsibility and pay for the order.
Is this your first time
You read the FAQ then realise cancelling is not allowed.
Take responsibility for your purchases.
Where is the merchant version
You ordering lead? Or is it huge? Either way you have to eat the cost or its ban time.
Is this the lucky grab bag?
Just ignore it
Either pay or start looking for another shop
What did you order? A heavy magazine book with EMS shipping?
What did you order faggot
I'm glad to have finally found the limited edition sealed but every time I think about opening her I puss out. Maybe if she hadn't cost so much.
I get a good view of her assets through the window in any case.
I know that feel.
You bought that for a bullshit price, that doesn't count.
How much is the original price and how much did you pay?
>every time I think about opening her I puss out.
Then what is even the fucking point?
You might as well just have bought a chinese bootleg, or print an image of her to hand up.
Charlotte daki looks better.
Delayed gratification or whatever. I'll open her sooner or later because otherwise I can't use the alternate breast pieces
I've also never seen inverted nipples on a figure before.
Original retail price was 7,500yen.
I got her for $60. The box is slightly tattered.
Who is that? She dresses like a whore.
I bought myself a 1/500 model of the Yamato to go along with all of the Yamato girls I'm buying. I fucked up on the body quite a bit, it wasn't until the second day that I realized nail clippers work wonders for getting the little bits of plastic off.
The model was fun as hell to build though, it reminded me of putting together gundams back in middle school.
Can't wait to have the Captain standing up front.
Picture related. Its what I ordered.
Ohh, and she is MiSB.
Any Russian buyfags just get completely fucked?
I got the 1/1000 and painted it up real nice to go with my girls. Unfortunately I missed Yuki and idk if I want to spend a fortune to get her.
Have Melda ordered, probably skipping nurse tits though. I would love to see science girl next.
Was tempted to get the captain too, but wasn't sure if I want to add him into the display with all the girls.
>keeping her in that awful plastic prison
>bragging about it
You're a terrible person, Noodles.
Oh wow that looks badass. If I tried to paint mine with anything other than a spray finish I know I'd fuck it up.
You can always go for the alt color Yuki.
>Living in russia
That explain a lot. Horse are expensive to ship.
Well, there is another reason why she is still in her prison. Lack of place to display her.
So will you free that glorious wolf god when you have place for her?
You could atleast work on all the nubs. An exacto knife to carve them off atleast would help. You might want to check out the gunpla/plamo thread over on /toy/ for some modeling tips. Some lining would help it stand out more too.
might want to look for a better country
I suggest Argentina.
Maybe because no one else makes figures of that character.
Amiko makes shit figures.
I hope it doesn't affect my business. I mark Gift and undervalue my international shipments, though I never advertise it.
