If anyone cares GSC is opening a branch in the US.
Did that anon ever post the things he wanted to sell?
Yes, check the archive.
Still cheaper to ship from Japan if you're pretty much anywhere but the states anyway.
and now you don't have to worry about tax, because everything is already taxed.
WonFes is right around the corner what do you want to see painted/proto/etc/announced?
I'm hoping for something on that Sakura nendo.
I also second some CCS merchandize, Sakura is one of my favorite characters.
>implying you get taxed for importing in the Land of the Free
I really look forward to the US branch.
Doki Doki De Kowaresou
Wasn't that canceled?
Some fags in mfc were saying it was cancelled, but there hasn't been any official info in almost 2 years.
Well maybe they'll surprise you anon.
I want a rerelease or new scales of >pic related and Kino.
Best UtaPri (in my opinion because my taste is probably considered shit, getting Tokiya, Ren and Syo only)
i ordered this as my first poor fag purchase because of bills buying the figure next month.
Anything from Love Live.
Anyone from the Old Maid Alliance thats not from griffon
How often does it usually take for Manda to respond to emails?
WHY GOD WHY
Love Live, im@s, Cinderella Girls, Million Live, etc.
But especially this.
Red. My eternal enemy.
Dodged that bullet.
Weren't photos of the painted version already posted?
WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS
WHY DID I BELIEVE IN >>100950500
mistakes were maid
This time they surely will put nothing but a gaping mouth on her face.
WHAT. Is this an official alternate version? I don't recall Marika in that color.
Subtle Hearthstone joke, I like it.
I know. But I'll buy it anyway because I already have all her other figures. Though I still need all the shitty trading ones.
Her costume is red in the movie.
The figure is based on the movie.
I still like the figure itself, I just should've seen this coming since its a movie tie-in.
I'd want either:
Tokyo Ghoul figs (unlikely but Touka would be bliss)
Akame ga Kiru! figs (preferably Esdese or Leone)
Mekaku City Actors stuff
The prototype was surrounded by pics of her in her regular outfit. It's total bullshit.
Has anyone experience with slolita? They have some nice covers, but I'm not too eager to buy from a chinese circle that only sells their stuff at Taobao. However, some anons seem to have had good experience with AcHobby which also uses Taobao.
This cover was done by Noodle by the way, who now works for AcHobby.
If anyone wants to buy any of these nendos before I put them on ebay, I'll sell them each for $25 (Nene and Chiaki for $20) + shipping. They're all opened and have been displayed in a smoke-free and pet-free room. Boxes are in great condition too except I peeled or cut off the plastic sticker thing to open them. Also I doubt anyone wants them but I have an Oreimo Kanako Meruru cosplay prize fig for $10 and a Shijou Takane nendo petit for $5. I'm in USA.
oh shit where do i get one?
Definitely buying this! I'll let you know how it worked out.
I don't see the problem. It's still a Marika figure, and that's great.
How many more days again?
I was interested, but not anymore.
Oh well, my new thigh-queen awaits.
will I ever receive it...
contact the seller
13 days until Wonfes.
Who truNEET here
What the fuck is this
It clearly says Foldable Container
Sakura trick kissu figs.
my dick cant wait
I need the most absolute homoerotic fig possible, something hard to ignore that would make everybody you into into your living room uncomfortable with you alone. Budget isn't an issue.
Benten? Or the Pico and Chico figures?
Get a dollfie and stick a dragon dildo to it's crotch. Then add a sign in front of it saying "For personal use only"
Probably unlikely here, but I'm looking around for Figma Griffith if anyone has one they want to get rid of~
Male Mami's theme
Is he shitting out entrails? Man why was this cancelled? It's gold.
Billy Herrington figmas
Here. It doesn't get much filthier then this.
I know the context of this one, but holy crap.
<- my disgusted face
>tfw you will never have this http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIG-MOE-5415&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dsora+no+kiseki%24pagemax%3D20%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1
Guys hows do I fit in?
Where the fuck do you get do you get this? Google did fuck all.
Speaking of homos, have their been any updates on this thing's release? If not I guess I should just wait for wonfest.
You could've just posted the picture and say it was sold out or something. Fucking retard
>yfw when you are so incapable
Why are you helping him?
I just grabbed the pictures off /a/. Apparently it was a garage kit or something.
Try RIS in the archive for more info.
Why are garage kits always the best figures?
Nope. It's Alter after all.
Cause they aren't made by Chinese slaves who hate Japs
What's the context?
Is alter selling any of their Jap-hating Chinese slaves?
About to get a daki, will a 150 by 46 pillow work or is it too small?
Read the guide
they require skills other than having money
I'll be getting all of them, but great taste there.
I wish they put one in the EU instead, in a low-VAT country.
So I could enjoy this farce of a union.
You will get taxed if you importing stuff as a company, hence >>100949413
Your days of buying at amiami are numbered.
I used the BIJ forwarding service to buy something from Amazon JP. How long should I wait before contacting them about my order?
did you already buy the ticket
Yes, right before I made the order.
I made the order a few days ago but I've never used a forwarding service before. I just don't want anything to go wrong. I already received the email from Amazon saying the item arrived at the address it was sent to so I just want to know how long I should expect to wait for them to send it.
I've read in these threads before that some people have had problems with BiJ holding onto their items and not responding to their emails but it was still the most recommended forwarding service when I went through the archive.
>1 hour until I win my bid.
>Just 5 seconds before you win it some nip will snipe it from you.
The tears will be delicious.
Does anyone have pictures of CDJapan's shipping? Wondering if I should use RSAL for this. I usually order off Honto with USAL but Honto's shipping is fucking amazing.
Be ready to snipe.
Hey guys, I haven't been ordering stuff for quite a while, now I getting something from Mandarake, are there any changes with shipping fees? I'm getting a figma Griffith, so SAL would be around 700 or 1300 yen if I remember correctly?
They use green paper and it's not as good as Honto in my opinion.
What are you ordering?
Yeah. They do put an extra 500 yen fee if the cost of the item is less than 4k though.
Really jus any of the new gatchaman suits or any utsutsu fig but i kind of doubt there will be any despite it getting a second season
Yeah, I remember that. Still cheaper than elsewhere. I just hope my package won't be hit by customs.
They'll also devalue if you ask, so you shouldn't have to worry about that.
The handling fee is for order below 5k, not 4k. You can ask them to undervalue in the comment box when placing the order to declare whatever amount you want.
I fucked up on my order. I had the Date a Live swimsuit edition on preorder from HobbySearch so I am going to try to contact CDJapan to remove it. If possible, I'm also going to try to cancel the To Love-Ru Darkness Official Databook since I added that to make my order over 10k yen for bonus points. If I can remove both of those, I will be buying all four volumes of Sakura Trick.
I was also planning on getting the Date a Live Rinne Utopia artbook but I will probably get that off Amazon.jp since I have to make a textbook order from them soon, so the artbook will only be 400 shipping.
Well, too late, fuck. I already ordered it and for some reason thought that it'd be devalued by default since I chose SAL.
Motherfuckers! They did try to, I had to buyout the item.
It will be, it just may not be devalued enough like what has happened to me.
Does anyone know if this site restocks its sold out dakis, or am I going to have to hunt yahoo auction for the one I missed out on. http://sengendo.a.la9.jp/index2.html
Can I email them when I'll get my payment request?
If they ever put one in the EU I bet it will be a french one. So 20% VAT for us all.
Don't see why not.
>want to order 2 old and cheap doujins from Manda since they aren't available anywhere else
>both are in different stores
It feels like a hassle and waste of time and money now.
Well, glad you got it but always remember they will try to snipe your ass.
How good is she, /a/? Would you say she's worth 16k?
Get this instead.
Is it even being sold anywhere still? I would if could, I rather not deal with yahoo auctions.
Can you even call it sniping on YAJ with the auto extension?
They usually either start a bidwar with you in the last 5 minutes, which can go on forever, or just bid their highest bid from the get go.
What's the best male figure you have on display right now, anons?
I see it on Mandarake from time to time. Nothing right now though.
Even with auto-extension on, I've found people will still wait until the last moments before trying to snipe, likely in an attempt to outbid someone who isn't on their PC during the 10 minute period.
Would the right leg not cause paint transfer? At least that's what I've always thought of this figure.
What do you guys think of the manga cutted for scanning?
It is ok to have goody-japan handle this kind of thing?
B-but the weebs...
I was google searching the image and found this.
I should probably contact hobby heart and see if this is legit,because the name is wrong.
Time to apply for a job there
>likely in an attempt to outbid someone who isn't on their PC during the 10 minute period.
Ah yeah, I do that too, though in my experience more often than not hardly anything happens in the last few minutes. I guess I just got lucky most of the time.
It could also be because I usually choose auctions with worse start prices that end nearly at the same time as cheaper ones. Most of the time people bidwar each other on the cheaper one and I can fly under the radar while ending up cheaper.
I can spoonfeed you straight up and tell you this isn't legit. There's only one right now which I see on Y!JP for 28k. It shows up on Manda occasionally, here:
Just keep an eye on this and one will likely pop up within the next few months. As a dakimakuraer I've found this hobby is mostly about waiting.
They better not try to stop Japanese stores from selling to North America. Shipping from Japan to Canada is usually cheaper and faster than shipping US to Canada.
Ahh, hopes dashed. I thought they got their hands on one and just scanned/cleaned it and sold it themselves.
A bit off-topic but does someone know who the manufacturer for the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles CE figures is?
If you don't care for authenticity, go for it, the quality is pretty good. If you do care about authenticity, keep hunting.
Yeah, I can get a legit one later. I already contacted HobbyHeart about it.
Remember when they forbid amiami to sell their huge discount stuff in their english shop? You can kiss amiko goodbye when they finally opened shop.
On the bright side, now murrikan hamhanders can literally scream at them and demand replacement everytime they smashed one of gsc fig to pieces.
>2.22 MB, 3264x2448
They're all packed up in my closet, but my favorite one is this one. GSC's Aoba from DMMD is a close second, but only because the base/pose is awesome, and not for any real affection for the character.
Meant Max Factory; all this talk of GSC got it stuck in my head. Speaking of which, will there be any real benefit to them having a US store? I figured they'd just jack up the base price to account for the cost of shipping figures there in the first place. Is there usually a significant difference in price in, say, Kotobukiya's American stores instead of buying from Amiami?
So you can admire every inch of detail in his purchase, is my guess.
Fucking this, I was watching the streams last wonfest hoping for one and never got one. But this time I can feel it, she's gonna get one.
Ranges from 5-15 dollar savings, plus cheaper shipping I'd say. Of course, it takes 1-2 months longer to even get them in compared to the JP release which means I never bother.
Guys, I didn't get to order her when I had the chance. Apparently she's out now, but the only place I found that sells her is BiginJap, which is sold out. Is there a possibility she'll be available again??
Think of it as a free new wallpaper.
This. Also I'm pretty sure US packages are taxed all the time, while Japanese are random.
Thank god, YES!
Finally cheaper domestic figs.
Anyone tried that NY new shipping method in Europe?
Bet you haven't even tried it, James.
I don't mind that, really. I'm more used to slow deliveries. It usually takes within 2-3 weeks for something to be shipped from Japan to where I live. I only use SAL unreigstered.
Works out cheaper than me than the alternatives, but I've only used it for figures which aren't due for several months,
Nor I need to. RSAL is still available and all EMS packages are untaxed anyways.
God bless FREEing
Were you already charged with VAT? I mean, it's an extra 27% of the cost.
>all EMS packages are untaxed
Yeah but I get hit by tax on every single package anyway with a handling fee too, plus it means they get held in customs for ages as well. I'm fine with paying te tax now and having it go through quicker.
One of the few benefits of being in MURRIKA.
I don't thin the delivery time will get any better. According to NY they might take up to 10 days to ship out your order, then a few days to get it to France, then a couple more to process it through customs and local shipping at the end.
They claim 8-10 days of delivery but that's complete bullshit if you check the numbers.
James lives in mexico.
James lives in Mexico though.
And with that it loses all value for me, even if customs rape me it's at least only 19%.
Add on top that is more expensive than EMS for orders under 6kY of shipping, and longer delivery times.
Considering that using RSAL for me is around 2 weeks to hit my country, then I've got to hope that it goes through customs and gets a fee put in it that can be paid at my post office which will take about 5 days. If they don't think it's a suitable fee then they'll ask for an invoice to be sent by snail mail and then send it to the post office.
I get the feeling I'm the only one in the UK that has been put on a shitlist by customs.
Problem is, you are paying as much as you'd pay with EMS, and getting RSAL delivery times.
The UK is bollocks with customs. Anything over 15 GBP, gets a 8 GBP handling fee + tax. Usually the handling fee > tax.
You are paying to be taxed.
What to do when figure's (in this case, figma's) pegs don't fit the sockets? What do you use to enlarge the socket?
Then why do britbong buyfags not leave?
My last order was about 800 yen more expensive than RSAL and cheaper than EMS. I'd be happy if I got RSAL times if it means I don't get an addition 5 days - 2 weeks waiting time due to customs deciding that my package looks undervalued.
It's especially bad when they begin to question whether you're being taxed enough. If I order through Manda now I've got to have them put the correct price since customs will ask for an invoice to be sent if it looks too low.
Wait so you can't undervalue?
Maybe you're on some list or something anon.
I'm sure I am, since I was fine for about a year but now I get hit for everything.
Assuming you're in the UK, don't you people get taxed out the ass for socialized services already? Why do they feel the need to tax your mail in addition to this?
Well I think customs in the EU is high as fuck generally because they want to encourage trading within the EU (which is tax free). This only benefits businesses rather than consumers though.
>ribbon on the back
I was unaware this was a thing.
Ribbons on the sides, or two ribbons on the front (right on top of each hip bone) are also a thing.
She's wearing them wrong.
Why is she holding a dildo>
What are people's general experience with the rating on amiami pre-owned figs?
I am a beginner buyfag, as much as i've been getting a fig here and there over the past decade or so, I only really have a dozen-ish. All bought locally really so I have no real knowledge of ordering from overseas.
The guide doesn't really have experience based stuff in it, so i'm asking here.
(Recently acquired 100k and have always been a relative poorfag. wanted to deck out a detolf or 2 with a bunch of figs i've always wanted, if only I could find the Blood Spattered Berserk Guts by Art of War fig, i'd likely spew quad figs at whoever has one)
So yeah I was wondering how accurate the amiami pre-owned quality rankings are? Since i'll likely be grabbing a few from there.

PM from MFC:
"Wow uh okay. So I take the time to wrap, box, physically take the item down to the store, pay for fuel to and from the post office, only for you to turn around and tell me that shipping is too expensive and not worth bothering with? Why didn't you think that you would be completely wasting someone's time before contacting them in the first place? People like you are the reason why quotes aren't free. My time is worth nothing, but when people like you are involved, it costs a fortune.
This is not how business works in the real world. Not that you would know anything about that, because business is generally reserved for adults. You can't PM me again - I've blacklisted you for being a completely fucking moronic time waster - and I pray you don't contact anyone else on this site only to waste their time as well. Rather than wasting people's time I suggest sticking to online stores which you'll likely just end up banned from due to stupidity and your evident indecisiveness."
I honestly don't like the outer edges of the cabinet. Detolfs are pure glass and figures do not get obstructed by white aluminium bars.
Then again, if you spend thousands of dollars on figures then why not spend an equal worthy amount on the cabinet.
Same with people buying 2000 dollar PC's but still have a 40 year old wooden desk.
I agree with him, you sound like a cunt. Don't fuck people around unless you're willing to go through with the deal.
Create another account and do the exact same thing to him again and post his reaction here
That's 100% your fault m8.
Most US sellers like to use UPS ground because the USPS is so bad, which means paying import fees higher than cost more than the product itself.
I see you never read the section of the guide dedicated to shipping, and how the price is unknown until the item is actually packed and ready to be shipped.
I hope you get banned everywhere else, too.
Well, did they give you a shipping quote before they went through all of that? If you knew how much shipping was but suddenly decided it was too expensive, then you do suck. If they jumped at the chance to send it as soon as you contacted them about possibly purchasing it, without waiting for an okay, then they're the idiot.
yeah, you're kind of a douche and you deserved it
Do they not know that you can calculate the shipping for your item for free online without going through all that hassle?
We don't need more idiots on MFC.
I would write pretty much the exact same thing as them, if I was jerked around by someone who only half-heartedly gave a shit about comitting to a purchase like yourself. Sellers aren't servants, you know.
>Wow uh okay
This. Even if you can't be completely accurate without going into the post office, it's more than possible to get a decent idea of the shipping cost online. If they ran to the post office the moment you asked about buying it, that's a failure on their part.
1. You're a douche.
2. Whoever was complaining about you sounds like a child.
Only if you know the exact weight with all of the packaging. So he would still have to go through most of the hassle and buy a scale.
you can go right on the USPS website (or UPS or whoever) and put in the to/from zip codes and get print out a label right on the spot, there is no reason to actually go to a post office unless you needed a box.
but he's still a dick for cancelling because of shipping costs.
you can even just use a bathroom scale to get a ballpark estimate, the difference isn't going to be huge if you're a couple ounces off.
I don't understand why they were already at the post office before you paid.
If you print the labels like >>100972413 said you have to be right
You'd have to know the weight, but you can get a pretty good idea of this with any scale or even just (over)estimating it by feel. Like I said, if he already knew the shipping costs and then just canceled anyway, he's a dick. But if they guy didn't even let him know the shipping cost before packaging it up and heading off to the post office, he's not very smart, either.
My guess is that the conversation went something like this:
>I want your figure. Can you give me a shipping quote?
>Guy boxes up his fig, takes it down to the post office, and says "how much would it cost to ship this to where Anon lives"?
>Comes back online and tells Anon shipping is $toomuch
>Anon bails because of shipping
>Guy gets royally fucking pissed that Anon bailed on him
Post the whole conversation so we can see who's the douche.
You're in the UK and you've been asked to provide an invoice when customs don't believe the value?
That's how I imagine it, too. Numerous tools exist for the seller to have been able to give a decent estimate for the shipping. Hell, if he was going to ship it, he should have known the weight already.
>fucking flat rate boxes.
Unless your sending shit out country... then RESEARCH SHIT.
I don't understand why anyone would go to the FUCKING POST OFFICE to check the shipping costs.
So was the seller going to message Anon from the post office, and wait for a reply before sending it off right then? Because if he went home to tell Anon about the price, and was planning to go back to the post office to ship it off, I think the seller is in no business selling shit online.
I always go to the post office to see how much shit costs to ship, but I also work right next to one and don't get mad if people back out.
If that's how it went, anon wasn't a fag
And if you've any experience with shipping things it's not that hard to estimate a cost without any tools at all.
I take it bad anon, you're likely not a douche.
Even at that, it's a fucking FIGURE, MFC and any other site you buy off has the weight for said item right there on the damn page. Adding in your bubble wrap + box isn't rocket science.
dust your figures before taking a photo faggot.
Filename, that's not his
>there are actually people in this world who spend money on figures but don't give enough of a fuck to properly care for them
It's not like it even takes that long.
Do you think Canadian customs would confiscate a lewd daki even if it didn't have exposed genitals/nipples?
Tell that to the jap who posted it on 2chan.
Wow, I'm sorry. Your seller is unfortunate in that he didn't know he can check shipping rates online.
What's his MFC username so that I can avoid him?
I don't know about you, but when I'm interested in a figure and ask for a shipping quote, I seriously don't expect the seller to take it to mean "I want it 100% please pack it up and spend gas and go to the post office to find the shipping cost". I expect a regular seller to estimate the weight and then use the handy online USPS price chart to find the corresponding shipping cost from the comfort of his computer.
I work at customs, and I would totally confiscate it.
>being NTR'd by customs
Would you hump and cum on it, then mail Anon a video of this?
>not just rubbing your cock up and down from top to bottom in order to leave streaks of cum
>not turning it over after you're finished and repeating the process
Humping is for plebs.
But would he mail a video of this to Anon for full NTR goodness? That is the most important of details. If he's going to confiscate it, he better go all out in defiling Anon's waifu.
Oh, he's a paisano? Neat!
I miss Hueco Mundo but I've heard it's been hell right now.
Holy shit, is it glued or it fits perfectly there?
It's actually really cool, I will try doing the same to mine when she arrives.
Gifft is going to do Caster right?
Is he nice? I've been looking at him for a while. Looks nicely detailed at the back.
Didn't hear anything about that.
It would be cool if someone except Phat Company would make Caster figs because their CCCCaster is disgusting but it's almost a year past the premiere of F/E CCC.
The chance that some other group will make her is nearly 0%
How many people are going to tune into Super Bowl next weekend instead of WF?
Flynn or Aoba? Flynn is excellent, as expected of Alter. Perfect as the accompanying centerpiece to the Vesperia collection if you also have Yuri, since their bases fit together. I'd highly recommend getting him, especially since he seems to be the cheapest of the bunch right now.
Figma Lucina, Wing's Leafa.
I just want anyone Koto or above to announce a KlK scale. Preferably Satsuki, but I'm willing to settle for a Ryuuko that isn't Phat's.
>cape blowing in the wind
>hair remains perfectly still
I'd a Satsuki (normal uniform, please) but speaking of Koto, I'd love some Kyousougiga figures, too.
Poor girl's back is broken, at least from this angle.
Holy shiiit, is it just me or is Manda's shipping stupid expensive?
I paid 4700 shipping for a 5600 order of the MGS Revengeance premium package, and two prize figs.
Lots of hair gel?
God fucking damn it. I'm going to have to do it anyway.
This. I don't even want a seriously dynamic pose. I'd settle for the way she stands with her sword if all the details were good enough.
It's from a BL game called Sweet Pool where the MC shits meat aliens.
It's basically BL saya no uta.
Yeah I meant Flynn. Sounds good. I would love to have Yuri if I could find him cheap. I had Estelle preordered so will probably see her in 2015.
I want to see a painted Snake Nendo, and maybe the sculpt of whoever is next in the series. Also some S2 Monogatari figures. It's a bit too early to see anything substantial but I'd like some announcements related to the Persona 3/4 spinoffs so I can get more stuff of my waifu besides to go along with the Nendo and Alter. Speaking of Alter, I want an Estelle release date.
That sounds absolutely nothing like SnU.
That game package is like 1.5kg on its own. Depending on the box sizes for the figures, it's not hard to get a box big enough to be a volumetric weight of 2.5kg.
>Youji is the protagonist of Sweet Pool. He begins expeeling meat monsters from a anus and has his life turned upside down. He is revealed, by Kunihito, to be a "mesu" (female) and has to breed with an "osu" (male). Zenya was initially the "osu" but Tetsuo was the perfect "osu", rendering Zenya a useless "osu" becuase they would not be able to create a purebreed. Unlike if Youji and Tetsuo got together.
As a result, there are now females with a fetish for guys shitting out meat.
Picked the fuck up?
And still the best of Chiral's shitty games.
Is it really?
Ordering it off Amazon. What are the chances I'm buying a bootleg?
Yes, at least in my opinion. I'd rank Sweet Pool>Lamento>dmmd>TnC. Sage for off-topic.
Medium-high. Almost as high as the chances of you being a complete faggot for ordering from Amazon.
Overpriced, almost certainly. Bootleg, maybe.
Anyone know anyone, anywhere, with sold out Art of War figs? like the somewhat rare blood spattered Guts that the guy earlier mentioned?
its all based on size and weight, you can't really complain, its going a long ways.
as long as it says its the real thing, it has to be, or else the seller is basically fucked.
So it might be overpriced, but if you do get a bootleg, and it said it was the genuine company, you will get a refund.
I'm sorry, I'm just not accostumed for shipping to be almost the same price as the actual things I'm buying.
The courage to tell me it's delivered and then deliver it on Sunday.
>I had Estelle preordered so will probably see her in 2015.
Same. Goddammit, Alter. And one of these days I'll get Rita, too, but the price she's going for used could get me another figure brand new so she's not really near the top of my list at the moment.
Wait until you buy printed matter.
Are these things big?
So, if they're all fairly flat books/manga why is it so expensive to ship?
Because of the weight?
This was surprisingly decent.
Artbooks and magazines are large, thick, and heavy, so yes.
Not really. They're a bit smaller than the top of a pop can.
The product specifications might, surprisingly, have something like a size approximation.
No not really. Their a pretty nice size for a key chain. They dont get in the way of things.
>large, thick, and heavy
Thats lewd anon, I love it.
A bit. About the size of the palm of your hand, maybe a little smaller.
She should be arriving for me sometime this week. Post more.
I've seen these on Amazon, you can buy from AmiAmi for almost the exact same price after shipping and know that you're not getting a Sader.
probably the first one.
They're about 2.25" tall and 2" across.
Only about 8 hours late but, muh niggah.
It's a good thing that cdj are bros about giving refunds.
They're pretty small for what they are, which is good, I have a couple of iDOLM@STER ones that I hang off my bag.
>mfw landwhales ask me if that's Haruhi
>actually using these straps on a bag
It's not like anyone knows what iDOLM@STER is, and if any weeb bugs me about it I just tell them it's from a video game and to fuck off, I mean technically it's true.
But yeah, ok, I'll fuck off.
How horrifying. I'm happy nobody recognizes my keychains, not even my SnK one.
>Not using your straps
How insecure can you be?
>It's not like anyone knows what iDOLM@STER is, and if any weeb bugs me about it I just tell them it's from a video game and to fuck off, I mean technically it's true.
The last time I was at one of the office computers I found a bunch of SnK images in the bin. I'm afraid.
I really don't understand why they're doing a recolor when the older colors are so much better. The only people buying the new one are those that missed out on the old one.
At work? Why the fuck?
That Beel butt. That Levi-tan.
My wallet. ;_;
I wonder if Beel will have rusted chains too.
Because the first release was limited edition, so they can't really make a simple re-release, hence the shitty recolor. At least the bonus item looks good.
please stop generating blogshit.
It doesn't look like a real chain.
Those chains are PVC, not metal
This is why I hate being late to buying the sins, I'm pretty much guaranteed to get a rusty chain that will have marked the figure if I buy unopened.
Those looks like plastic chains like the BRS figs have, so I highly doubt it.
Oh, that's a bonus item? I thought it was the concept art for a new figure. ;_;
Actually using the straps will result in wear and tear and the rubber will eventually harden/become brittle, which means the rubbers strap will snap at the weakest point, typically where the metal ring is attached at the very top. Rubber gets dirty easily as well due to its grippy/rubbery nature and it's hard to clean once the grime embeds. And then you lose the strap because it snapped at the top.
The proper way to collect them is to hang them indoors in a closed space like on a jewelry rack or in individual clear plastic sleeves.
Now I feel a bit stupid for not noticing. But relieved that I won't have to worry about rust stains.
Where is her left arm in the mirror?
>thought it was the concept art for a new figure.
Actually, you can clean rubber straps with white vinegar. It works great on cords and stuff too. But you do have a point with the weak point. The only reason I have my Levi on my keys is because I don't have any other SnK straps, and so it would lead to an uneven amount hanging on my wall.
No problem. Even if she did, the rust really isn't hard to get rid of. Soak it in white vinegar, or soda, for a few hours and it wipes right off.
No idea. I guess they were fucking around on /a/ just like me, the filenames made it pretty obvious. Although while I got rid of all the evidence completely they stopped at the bin level.
I'm sorry, anon. I just had to share this terrifying story once. It won't happen again.
>Not buying two of them. One to wear and one to collect
You're doing it wrong.
0/10 would not fucking buy
Some of the straps I get are pretty rare and I have to fight other Japanese otaku for them. It would be pretty hard to get a second copy, and if I did, I'd probably auction it to the highest bidder. I've had people bid $30 on rubber straps, a very nice turn.
>I click on link
>I laugh for a good minute
Should I assume that my package isn't going to leave Chinaland until after New Year celebrations?
Anyone here use Paypal's Bill Me Later service?
Are there any hidden strings in the small print?
It'd be nice to see atleast a proto on her, I haven't even heard of this company.
Demon Loli it's finally here.
It's only a matter of time before they produce the 6 pack ab mousepad.
Yeah, it's like getting yourself signed up for a credit card and what PayPal hopes to do is collect interest and more money from you than you bargained for. Why else would they try to lure you in with "sign up today & get $10 back on your first purchase"?
Japan, please don't ever stop.
Mine didn't ship yet because fucking Mikasa is holding shit up.
So if you spent 3 grand in under a month, would you call that a problem?
I came into some money, so im fine, and am contemplating selling some guns of mine, but still, so many to unbox still (pic is just half)...
I just enjoy them so much.
Yes, get help.
I would consider slowing down before you get too buy-happy and start making impulse purchases that you regret.
By the sounds of it, you'e buying too much and so won't be able to really appreciate them.
I like your taste.
You shouldn't spend your financial aid on dolls, anon.
How do people even do this?
I don't get enough for my tuition let alone housing or chink plastic.
>I just enjoy them so much.
No you don't.
see, thats my problem, i really like all of them, and feel like the choices weren't that bad (quality wise).
I feel like my guns were just sitting around as well (and are almost equally creepy to girls), and i have actual fun finding these, and it has gotten me to finally relearn some Japanese post HS.
And not to mention that guns are pretty dangerous, while PVC is completely inoffensive.
Just because i can't unbox them right when i get them doesn't mean i like them any less than the one's I'm displaying, it's just so hard to decide which ones to have out.
Might be time to auctioneer i guess...
It's because you have so many you can't fully appreciate them.
It's called moderation.
I haven't played or watched the shining series but damn,
Go to a community college or something, I get at least 1k for plastic
Eh, i have a safe, so i'm not too worried, but it is a concern.
And the figs depreciate when they are unboxed, but can also go up simply due to rarity even if unboxed, and my guns just depreciate as they get shot. I'm not fooling myself into thinking its a long term investment, but I also realize that the American market is filled with garbage, and if you offer the real thing and seem genuine, people will buy these at good prices. Or so it would seem.
Just because that might apply to you, it doesn't mean it applies to everyone else. If the guy says he appreciates them, then who are you to say he doesn't.
To late for that.
rofl you're gonna burn out of this hobby within the year
Post sader when she arrives
I have her, but Shining hearts is generic as fuck, not worth hassling you ass for
Melty is best girl tho
Living the dream
shes worth it even if you never played
best girls are always worth it
No fang? FAIL
But 1:3 scale!
Wow, it's fucking nothing.
That's like making a flat-chested Sonico.
That's a loli Sonico though, so that's different.
Just paint one on you lazy piece of shit
So is Amazon the best place for localized manga?
Cause I plan on buying Azumanga Daioh, and the 2 volumes of Watamote.
I would say Rightstuf, because usually their prices are better (7-8 for a volume, as compared to the usual 10), but their shipping can take forever.
Rightstuf has great deals from time to time as well.
I liked the manga, the show was shit though.
And into the trash it goes.
Your local book store is the best place to buy manga, it costs the same without shipping fees.
Check Book Depository just in case.
Wasn't it pretty much a straight adaption of the manga (minus the original ending) or am I remembering things wrong?
I'm personally pleased with how amazon came out
Still kinda split on getting her or elf, nothing else new I've been interested in
It was pretty straight forward, but I personally feel it was done wrong.
Holy fuck those thighs and hips.
>Warning: Some countries hate loli
Do any care about figures of lolis that are not lewd?
Thanks for ruining a decent figure with a hideous smile.
Will Amazon still not ship figs outside of Japan even if said fig is part of a BD preorder bonus, or am I going to have to use a forwarding service?
So basically harmless figs featuring kids? No, why would they.
Get Priceblink and check amazon/ebay. It'll tell you if someone has a better deal.
you know you wanna get smothered in them
I can't imagine the crotch bump is useful at all.
You can rub it.
I had the worst experience with a cancelled order from them, still waiting on the refund because they said it would take '1-2 months'.
If they don't do the sempais I'm going to be mad. I sat through all the games and ended up only liking them, I at least deserve a figure for my self-inflicted pain.
Her head is so small compared to everything else especially her thighs. Holy fucking shit.
But it would get in the way of your wrist.
They're fairly popular so I'd be surprised and disappointed if they didn't. I would love to get Reiji.
Does anyone know if there are a lot of bootlegs with Beach Queens figures?
Just double checking. Thank you.
I went with elf, Debating if I want to get any more than just her because shes my main. I know if I get the amazon I'll have to get to whole crew. Elf is definitely the better looking of the two in my opinion.
You'll need a forwarding service.
Fuck the sempai's. Cecil needs a figure, but if they're only doing the 1000% outfits, I can't see that happening. Hopefully they do their other outfits eventually.
>Cecil figure released in 2025
>sempais in 2030
I died a bit inside.
There are. The Chinese have bootlegged all of them. Even if you don't see a Counterfeit tag or bootleg photos on MFC, it exists so tread carefully if you're not buying from a trusted source.
>this is the figure collecting audience
Best way to check is to put the item in your cart and try to check out.
Yeah rather than them not being released I'm more worried that I won't still be alive by then.
>So what is to come of this account? I'm thinking about doing some tutorials on how to do make-up inspired by a said character. Of course I will do some blogs about some of the hauls I find with my boyfriend at the local anime shop outside of town, as well as some unboxing blogs. I might even though blogs and/or vlogs about my day with Gamergibbons. That way you don't think of us as some neckbeards who happen to find love.
Fuck. Do you know if Plamoya sells bootlegs?
>people who are adults in the eyes of the law still act this way
>She's old and stupid enough to be in community college
>there is no option for Fuck Off in the poll
Why do you bring this to us, James?

What part of myFIGUREcollection does she not understand?
Guys, did any of you buy this CD during C85 or do you have any download link for it?
They own shit but want attention, what do you expect?
Plamoya doesn't (or at least shouldn't). They get their figures from another source (some say tied to Amazon JP stock) so a lot of things are overpriced.
Anyone here used rakuten.com before?
Oh, nice to hear. Was worried I just blew about 70 bucks for a fake. Thanks anon.
It checks out, I just don't want them to turn around on release day and say that they actually can't ship it because of the fig.
I did, I haven't opened it yet, but there should be a rip around.
>the hauls I find at the local anime shop
I hope she buys bootlegs.
>waiting for Kirin Hobby to ship
There was a thread on /jp/ maybe try there.
What are your guys' thoughts on this. I'm a huge Plat-chan fan; she just looks so adorable here.
That incredibly lewd warning...
So I don't have to suffer alone.
He looks like chin-man.
I don't even know what do with mine. It's still in the plastic wrap.
Her profile bio is equally bad.
>I'm the really cute outaku!
I didn't find it anywhere so I would be very grateful if you could post it assuming you have seen one before.
>mfw people like her are breeding & the guy doesn't know any better because pussy-whipped
Rakuten is like amazon, it is a website where several different merchants can sell their goods, so it depends on the seller.
I canceled my order on CDJapan and remade it on Honto. I really like Honto's shipping, and since I'm ordering Say I Love You for someone else, I rather have their safe and secure packaging.
I will be making orders off CDJapan in the future, so I don't feel too bad about canceling this big one. I just wish they had the two volumes if Inaba and the rest of Say I Love You.
And I found out Sakura Trick is a 4koma, so I'm going to get that to practice reading. I am enjoying the anime enough to buy the manga.
Okay, I see. So if it's sold straight from the website probably a safe buy.
Actually, looking at her tumblr, she's not ugly, just a usual annoying weeaboo, so I suppose it could be worse. I don't feel sorry for the guy at all though, because if he's dating her, he probably acts just the same, especially since his bio starts out with a "Hi :3"
There isn't a Rakuten Rakuten store. Think of it as Amazon without Amazon, 3rd party sellers only. Like eBay but most listings aren't auctions. You need to do your research and make sure the seller is trustworthy and does ship to you. Some sellers will only do EMS, for example.
Fuck you James I was just getting happy.
>I'm ordering Say I Love You for someone else
If I were you I'd cut all ties with them.
>anon, now 70, waits patiently in his living room
>finally his favorite uta-pri figure is in the mail
>checks the tracking
>out for delivery
>anon sits patiently
>shuts his eyes for a brief nap
>knocks at the door but nobody answers
>leaves a slip
>anon never wakes up from his nap
>his figure sits at the post office, never to be opened
Sorry, I just thought there was one.
It's a win win for me. I save a bit on shipping since I get to charge him a portion of it, and I get some money from him for going through the trouble.
>Game(s): DMC, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Legend of Zelda
She is half a man.
DMC pfft Nero best gril
She probably means the new Donte game.
>Game(s): Some of DMC4 and DmC, claim to like FF7 and 10, Pokemon, and Twilight Princess
>only 5 figures
Just remebered Amazon jp changed their shipping policies
I may order the DXD artbook now.
I just hope they localize the game, I need to speed up my nip learning, having to wait for translations is the stuff of nightmares.
>Occupation: Dance Student
You're mocking her but I'm willing to bet that everybody in here has played at least one of every single game in that series. The real problem is that she probably hasn't and is just listing popular stuff to be popular.
What's their new shipping policy? I checked yesterday and saw the 800 per shipment and 400 per item, but I never ordered anything before that to know what's new or not.
>Amazon jp changed their shipping policies
I'm mocking her because she's probably one of those retards that like "the zeldas" thinking the series started with OoT. Pretty much what >>100991370 said
It was about 3000 yen starting fee for one book. Now it's down to 1200 yen and same service.
The boyfriend, I assume
Thats pretty good for artbook, thanks.
Whats the cost per additional item? 600?
Actually I'm only interested in Caster's song so if you are going to rip it someday, feel free to post it in any buyfag thread as I check them everyday.
Thanks a lot in advance.
I think she's probably only tried the popular stuff and is a normal, mainstream gamer who hasn't really matured in taste or experience, given her writing and expression quality.
>reacting to mfc profiles
You niggers are just stupid, stop reading and commenting on them, you are only making those fags famous.
400 yen per book or 300 yen per CD/BD/DVD.
Very worth it if you get 2kg tomes like that JoJoveller book or multiple heavy artbooks.
>implying anyone here is commenting on them
They're so easily offended you'd probably get banned for not using smiley faces.
Well, it looks a shitload better than Noel/Tsubaki/Jin's dakis at least.
I preordered both just in case
I've only played through the game with Elf and Sorceress though
Not gonna lie I like that Nendo Miku gif.
>you are only making those fags famous.
We've done this plenty of times and I can't remember the name of a single one. The only one I vaguely remember was the one with a hambeast gf wanting to get rid of all his loli stuff.
She's your basic 'super kawaii and unique' attention whore. Probably wants to be the first to do make up tutorials.
Oh, that's pretty good then, thanks.
These are now up for 680 yen each or 2880 yen for a set of four. Should I get them?
Commenting here, if people actually did comment their reaction there, it would be good.
Nice try FREEing but I know better
Only if you can resale them for 4x profit.
>Fuck the sempai's.
I would if I had a figure.
I think I should be able to resell them for at least $10-$15 each easily and I can see someone snapping it up for $25 if I do it right.
>Hot gluing Count Permafrost.
We autism now?
It's the standard place for seams for kimonos (?)
Shiki had them too.
How? I accidentally bought 1 DVD in a set of Sakura trick BDs, and they refunded it within a couple of days so I could re-order.
Reiji more likely.
it still annoys my autism
>not recognizing Saber
Stop this. Yes, you are correct, that is a standard place for seams in a real life Kimono, but when the "seams" look like the persons arm was chopped off with the Kimono as a single piece, then reattached, it's bad.
So you are in the same boat as me except I didn't even start learning.
Where did you start? Any websites/books etc. that helped you are welcome.
>Cecil needs a figure, but if they're only doing the 1000% outfits, I can't see that happening.
They'll make a Cecil cat figure.
On second thought, paying 680 per prize figure is too much even if I can turn a profit. I'll save my money for something I like more, like Rei-chan goods.
Actual seams don't look anything like that.
>Two more new girls announced by Alter
>Not one is a Charles proto
Did Alter can her? I know 'Later' but we got protos of these girls and Charles was announced way back.
>Small packet shipping from Russia
Hopefully Ill receive it before next year
Am I crazy if I spend ~$200 on a pillow cover? That doesn't even include the stuffing which would be about another $50. The character isn't even my husbando and it's not even a fully body daki.
But this stupid thing has become my holy grail and I've finally found one up for sale.
How bad is this going to be?
Whoops, didn't mean to quote.
Nobody Likes D'Artagnan
Are you going to give it lots of love and make sure it wears its seat belt in the car?
I want a different D'artagnan.
You are crazy to spend $200 on Utapri.
Then you aren't crazy.
For someone who only wants Native's Gamer Girl for the PSP and DS how is she? Her face doesn't really look up to the art it's nice but her tits... I just want her hand helds.
Ugh, it's Kantoku art. Kantoku is treading dangerously into the one-trick pony territory.
Wrong picture, but looking at them now they look really cheap.
>tfw missed out on Beach Queen Kotori
Fuck, what do I do now? Wait for her to pop up on Mandarake?
Wait. That what i did for Iwai.
>Wanting plain BQ Kotori.
>Not wanting Koto's.
Anything Gatchaman crowds
Anything Log Horizon
Any Vocaloid that isn't Miku, Rin or Len unless it's a favorite costume or sculpt.
Senbonzakura Kaito painted even though it's FREEing...
Probably won't happen, but Alter Makoto painted.
Sakura nendo prototype.
>all that Dorj
I want an Alter MonHun 1/6 scale.
So between Olympics and WonFes, which one should I watch on Sunday?
These look cute as fuck, but I don't really have anything to use these straps on. Are they worth it for collecting?
>tfw I just bought a shitload of doujins even though I can't understand Japanese and can read them online anyways
Bersker scale ;_;
Other than that, I'm already drowning here to wish for more stuff
But only want Luccina Figma painted and Windwaker Nendo
And any other Nintendo girl scale, maybe Nowi
Why did you buy them if you didn't want to?
>not buying all the BQs, Koto scales, and prize figs
Is your life even worth living?
doujins are for hotgluing
Sochi is going to be an unmitigated disaster. I can feel someone is going to get shot.
She's not italian.
I like looking at the art and stuff, and for collectible reasons. It was still just sort of a 'Why did I spend money on these' moment.
Who cares. They're nice to look at, just like artbooks. I'd love to be able to read some of the stuff in all the artbooks I have, but that don't mean they're useless.
Something for Luka would be nice.
An Amy nendoroid to go with the Sonic one.
Well at least you weren't making some horrible joke. I buy my doujins to fap to, and artist support, like for standard artbooks.
IA nendo ever?
What, it's cheaper now
It's still pretty expensive though, considering.
Anyone getting this?
>mfw the US uses the opportunity to kidnap and extradite Snowden
Very true. But I really see no further notice from Avant Garde figs and their websites are inactive. It seemed very doubtful from the beginning.
You can either store them in their packaging, hang a lot of them in your keys and/or phone or get a cork board and hang all the keychains collected with pins/nails. I think pic related sewed in the keychains or made holes for them in the fabric and then stuck it together to the cork board.
A bare corkboard is fine though, especially if most shelves are pine wood or something beige-ish.
Does animate jp ship to the US?
You know Animate USA exists, right?
Yeah but they don't have the shit I want
Obviously not. Re-read the guide to differentiate between domestic chain stores in Japan and distributors overseas.
What is it that you want?
>How bad is this going to be?
It already looks fucking terrible.
Check those daily japanese threads.
That was the joke...
They seem to be sticking to character which actually would sell.
Amazon does use DHL for international shipments which has it from Japan to your doorstep insanely fast.
Finally an amazing Emi figure after all these years?
Please let this be great and not 20,000 yen.
Hot damn that looks good. Probably going to be wallet rape though.
Amiko came through with the complete cancellation. I wouldn't really have minded taking the hit on most of them, but customs has been raping me hard lately, so I'm done with shops that don't offer undervaluation.
>That feel when no customs
I haven't watch Precure since Heartcatch, how are new series?
I personally loved the show more when it was just Futari wa, only 2 girls...
