Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
12 Days till WonFest
first for bwendin
reflective bases should be done more often
first for Steins;gate limited edition
March 31st hurry up
is there pre orders for the space dandy ost yet?
your mom should be done more often
When you have to dust it you will know why they aren't that popular.
Actually, you can start now, I see the dust collecting on it already.
FREEing's stuff is usually pretty shit, right? For some reason I'm thinking so but I can't recall if I read that here or if I'm mistaking them for a different company. I'm asking because of the Senbonzakura Miku.
Can't wait for the 10 year of Fate art that comes with this.
I read the guide and didn't find an answer, so;[/spoiler/
Where could I find out of print magazines? (Dengeki G's Festival to be specific) The best I've found so far is overpriced stuff on eBay.
FREEing is not complete shit.
They are mostly hit or miss with more misses.
If anything if you are getting FREEing get one of their 1/4 figures as they are good at making those.
>10 year of Fate
No way, it hasn't been that long yet.
Only their sculpting and prices. Usually the finished product is just like the proto, as good or as fucked up.

Y2k was 14 years ago. The Mayan Apocalypse was 2 years ago.
You shouldn't have made another post after deleting the original. Read the guide again.
Yeah, didn't FSN come out in...2006, or something?
Sorry, I messed up the coding.
So the white on my PVC figure isn't as vibrant as it used to be a couple of years ago. Is this normal? Can any cleaning be done? It's never been exposed to smoke or sunlight.
If it just happens then I'm ok with that.
When does this come out?
Hell yes motherfucker
Next month, I'm gonna get Samus
Exposure to light fades colors.
Fun fact: the Murikan flag on the moon is now white.
I kind of want to get this since I don't have F/HA yet. Going to wait to see what the artbook has that wasn't already in Catalogue/the TM 10th Anniversary book.
11 days until Wonfes.
Anime was 2006
VN release date: January 30, 2004
Better get out the bleach. It'll be fine, trust me, I'm a doctor.
I hope to see something about Utena.
Would buy the shit out of.
What maker for this Drossel?
Time to keep my dungeon nice and dark.
>Spend thousands on this shit
>Suddenly doesn't want it anymore
What the hell is happening to me.
Bandai, i think
Its natural. Sell the impulse buys, keep the grails, move onto next obsession. You'll come back eventually.
sell it at an inflated price
Oh damn. It's been delayed until then? I honestly thought it would still be sometime in the winter.
You need to end yourself soon.
Also, stop buying with your dick.
haha, time to spend 20,000 jpy on a daki of my waifu
The nihilism in your empty heart has finally become a singularity, wherein no joy or happiness may ever escape. From now on, everything you do, everything you see, all of it will cross the event horizon of your jaded psyche and be crushed into nothingness. A desolate place, without any trace, it's only the cold wind you feel.
That better be a legit and a high quality material.
Anyone else around with this? I just opened her today and wanted to switch out the hairband with her cat ears. Had a hard time of it, when I find a spot where the cat ears feel like they're sitting right, the front half of her hair doesn't seem to fit in all the way. Then while I'm fiddling around with it the joint that connects her top and bottom halves seems to shift around, and if it's not in perfectly I can see the crease in her dress. Poked around and seemed to find a few mentions of the same issue but I was wondering if anyone here had a similar experience and got it to a point where they weren't OCD about it.
was meant for
Does the normal edition come with this, or is there a special edition?
Waku Waku De Kowaresou
Stop being OCD about it and just cum on her.
Looks pretty cute, anymore pictures of her?
That's nothing until you spend 10,000yen on a card, no regrets.
I asked for pics so I could criticize your purchase and taste. I'm sorry for doubting you anon. Well done
Pretty good advise, I'll take that to heart.
Is it mostly figures that you are referring to? Because I've slowed down on figures greatly, and moved onto printed matter. It's addicting.
Anything for your waifu.
The art book and manga slope is a dangerous one
I've started doing that too. Now I regret a lot of the money I spent on scales and wish I spent it on manga/artbooks/doujinshi. Similarly I had regretted first focusing on jointed stuff when I moved on to statues. Maybe I'll move on to another thing later and start regretting this printed phase too.
>Where could I find out of print magazines? (Dengeki G's Festival to be specific)
You can find the magazines on amazon.jp but all the bonus items will be missing. It will just be a magazine.
That particular magazine is highly coveted for the bed sheets, wall scrolls, mouse pads, and limited edition dakimakura included with each issue.
Issue 34 is worth $125+ due to the two very popular items it included. You will never find this magazine for a good price.
Obtained Grail Time.
Post your grail, how you managed to get it, and how long you had searched for it. Can be figure or other merch.
And now we play the waiting game.
what does a sunlight/smoke damaged figure look like?
Jesus christ that dust is horrifying.
On a related note though, I just got her a few months back. Looking for a second to store.
Ten years later and I still hate the art. Whoever told me it was an acquired taste fucking lied.
Preorders reopened for Mankind's Strongest Manlet
The only thing I can say is that the coloring and general art skill level got better. I still don't quite like the style, either.
Dude, getting or skipping?
I'm on the last page of the checkout screen.
Do I really want Cleaning Levi for $96 + shipping from Japan to me. I feel like he's going to sell out if I fap first.
Not sure, I need more pictorial background info, preferably detailed.
Not buying. I'm pissed that JAST completely shelved Jingai Makyou and unable resolve its so called OS issue.
Senbonzakura Miku was announced by Good Smile. Who's exited?
It's by freeing
And? How bad is there track record?
If that song is supposed to be about Japanese culture and not loosing roots then why are they wearing more of a 'westernized' version of their clothes instead of 'traditional' Japanese wear?
With most of their good ones being 1/4ths
I see. I am pretty much getting Zerker Elin. Even thought slightly disappointed that Arcadia didn't make her armored ver.
The whole song was about the Taisho Democracy. And the turbulent Great Depression that saw it turn into the Japanese Empire.
Why anyone would willingly give JAST money is beyond me.
I like the art, but I can see where you're coming from because that's how I am with pic related.
Forget the Elin, I want more Dragon 2020
I give up, I don't really want him after all since the face is pretty bad.
I'll bite the day when a scale of Jean is up.
I'm actually the same with Key productions. Holy fuck I can't stand that art.
I will agree with >>101060614 that the coloring and the execution of style in Type Moon works got a lot better over the years, but I still can't make myself like Fate's art. Which is a shame, since there are a lot of really interesting character designs in the series.
I really regret missing out on Samurai Girl. I mean, it's not impossible to find her (new, even), which is nice, but she's just too expensive for me right now. I know it's unlikely, but I wish they'd make a Samurai Boy to go with her.
Where does one buy good starter display cases? I only have two waifus so far.
The fucking guide
>I only have two waifus so far.
>MANDARAKE SHIBUYA - ORDER CANCEL
Christ, your an awful person. I hope your waifu gets NTR'd by your dad.
>the coloring and the execution of style in Type Moon works got a lot better over the years
Definitely, I'm pretty hype for Tsukihime remake even though I know a lot of people were upset about the outfit changes I really like them. I agree though, if you don't like the art to begin with, you probably won't end up liking it.
Nah man you gotta step it up from what one Anon posted.
>"I hope your waifu dies in an OVA."
Is it June yet?
>I hope the author just forgets about your waifu existing
I bought a book from toranoana and it was delivered before I bought a BiJ forwarding ticket. The delivered-to address on the shipping status page is different from the one I gave them, too. It's fucked, isn't it?
Why isn't Kotobukiya making her like they are Olivia?
why do i have to pay $100 for plastic? do they affect me getting a girlfriend?
Screenshot? How can they deliver to some place that you didn't provide to start with?
And yes, you're most likely fucked. BiJ rejects unknown packages.
Why would they? Dark general was picked by Amakuni as well.
Did Saber use the Grail to make her breasts bigger?
Part of my recent haul from Japan. Also bought a couple of wallscrolls and official merch.
That's Nero silly. The sluttiest Saber.
That'd be Arturia, going by the times you fuck her in the game.
It says it was delivered to 浅草橋４丁目センター, at ５－２－１４浅草橋ハイツ１階
It's a one minute walk away. I don't know if the mailman just messed up or that's where it went after being rejected or what.
my dick is ready for your scans
I just figured if a maker is making one, they would be the ones to do the initial release of others.
That doesn't happen with game franchises, specially mobage ones. Plus, why want them by Koto when MF has the better quality?
This might be my first Miku.
Holy shit, where is her tail attached to?
I didn't even know that was Miku, I thought it was some sort of retarded train conductor.
Why didn't you just buy the BiJ ticket right after you bought the book? Though I guess it doesn't matter now if it was misdelivered.
That's not a tail, she's shitting after eating two boxes of Oreos.
Pick whichever hole you prefer
So I was in a /v/ thread earlier and I saw this pic of windows-tan called Claudia, fell in love instantly. Anyone know if there's any figs of her? I won't buy right away but I'd like to know my options
>favorite song and video
>The plush was always too much
>they go and make a figure after I made a big purchase
>I still have 2 figs I've pre-ordered as well
It's great being poor
Bundled with Visual Studio professional 2010.
For just 173kY
Will Jeanne be announced at Wonfes?
The detail on that chain looks like shit, then again that can't be easily seen by the naked eye.
Go on, you better not disappoint after using that fx.
Shitty quality sponsored by my shitty smartphone.
Perfect deal. You got to be fucking kidding me
Thanks Buyfag general (or whatever you like to call yourselves). Months ago I asked for some advice on how to buy stuff since I wanted to get my waifu's figure.
Maybe, just be aware we still waiting on painted Jack and they only seem to enjoy producing Sabers instead of other popular servants...
Oh Jesus. I forgot to resize the image. Sorry.
The figure is very nice. I like it a lot. It comes with another right hand+arm and another left hand. One pointing at you and the another one doing that cute pose.
That fucking image size again. Just stop.
Oh yeah, you can remove her skirt if you want to... do stuff.
Fuck you Microsoft, seriously, fuck you. I can pirate software but you can't pirate waifu
I broke your waifu behindmen.
That seems to be a nice ass, good for you.
So, which figure(s) is next?
Really? Why would a store remove all extras before shipping? It doesn't seem like something any retailer would do.
A better solution would be to find a forwarder who's willing to ship just the extra bonus goods and not the heavy magazine book itself. It would bring the shipping cost down to less than 1000 yen if you take SAL.
>treating it in lewd ways for everyone to see
what is wrong with you
Yeah, I noticed too late and I can't delete the post or anything.
Final shoot. Again, thanks Buyfag thread. Maybe we will see each other in the near future.
You should buy her daki too.
Why is it so blurry and grainy? Get a basic point-and-shoot camera, it can be had for less than $100 and last through your casual needs for a few years.
>get the Symphogear Trio Nendos
>get through Tsubasa no problem
>Hibiki is problem hell
Did anyone else get Hibiki and have serious problems getting her back peg and her back plate working?
Hey guys, my monthly bundle has been sitting since the 20th on the post office in Japan. Are they having some sort of events over there or something? I always use EMS and my shit gets here within 5 days so I'm wondering if I should worry just yet.
>plush is too much
How much is too much? I usually see the prize toy plush go for 1000 yen if not less.
Are you tracking it thorough your country's postal service?
He must've meant the big plushies which can cost easily15k or more.
I don't consider the /d/ pic as lewd. The pantsu however... I couldn't resist.
I'm broke dude. I bought mai waifu's fig with the last remains of the money I got from being a wage slave.
On another note, I used the unboxing of Akiko's figure to actually tell my mother about her being mai waifu and all. She took it surprisingly well and we joked about how she looks better than real women, specially my Nii-san's girlfriend (the very definition of 3DPD. I don't know why he has such a shitty taste)
>waiting for febuary 9th
You've got balls anon.
I had the idea of telling my mom after having her watch the movie Her with me but I bitched out. Besides, she doesn't need to know. She'll figure it out eventually when I buy more merch of my Rikka.
Tracked with both Japan Post and USPS. Nothing has changed, all I get is "Origin post is preparing for shipment" and the previous says it's on Tokyo Int. Container 1 Japan.
That means it's still in transit, don't worry just taking a bit, only panic if it's 3 more days.
I don't recall giant plush dolls of Senbonzakura exist. There has been 4 Senbonzakura Miku plushes + 2 Kagamine ones, all of which were 15-18cm tall.
Uh what? Usually you don't get that status at Japanpost's site.
What does it exactly say?
My mother liked mai waifu's figures, then again all the Kuroneko figs I have are cute and none lewd.
Nah there was a few ones that were 8 inches being scalped for about 30 each last I checked on various sites
Yes, you can. Tracking updates first on the JP site until package leaves Japan. Then it will lag behind your country's post service site, but as long as people aren't sleeping on the job, the JP site also eventually update to Delivered, usually about 1-2 days later.
This Rikka. Which I'll never get because fuck KyoAni. Making it such a hassle to get her. ;_;
That's the status change on USPS tracking.
How is it?
Is it a Hollywood safe version of having a waifu?
I mean you get neither of those status at JP site. Neither preparing shipping nor container bullshit
At first I commented it as joking, then I insisted on the topic of her being my girlfriend. I suppose it helps that I spoil my mom a lot and have a good relationship with her, also the fact that she knows I'm a huge weeaboo.
Another funny thing about the unboxing was how she thought Akiko had nopan until I pointed out that she was actually wearing pantsu, she just needed to watch more carefully (old people don't see that well, you know)
Anyways, がんばれ anon-kun. Also, blogging out. Good luck to all of you anons.
That's isn't too bad, I think? I considered picking up Mikus for 500-1000 yen each but decided that reselling for $30 wasn't good enough of a profit margin.
I've had Shipping Container 1 on my update statuses for EMS in the last week. It's normal.
Just the usual times.
At JapanPost? Could you screenshot it?
She was up on BiJ for a long time.
I see this daki on mandarake for 2k and 3k yen, someone buy these great deals so I don't give in to the temptation.
Get a proxy mate. I got her figure and 3D Crystal both from the KyoAni Shop and I love them. Celga has a great service in my opinion if you want some good and kind service. I ordered some doujins and a Sonico Plushie from them to get it. Just waiting for it since it's all paid.
Just do it
I'm in the US though. I usually have them with in a week even my December Order was here within 3 days as usual.
Pretty much. Its very realistic
>Anon and waifu fall in love
>Waifu outgrows anon
She was up for 13,800 yen for quite a while on Suruga-ya as well.
Pretty much. I get the feeling people would be more accepting of a waifu after watching that film. It really makes you think about the concept of love in a way normalfags don't think about it. Even my mom who's quick to judge people and call them "sick" in a very negative way felt for the MC.
Shit. I was convinced I was screwed until I eventually bought some used one off ebay or something. Time to go hunting.
Fuck no she's not even mai waifu!
I don't want to want her lewd scales and soft looking cover.
Also I'm trying to save money, for important things, like work permits.
>Really? Why would a store remove all extras before shipping?
Most people only buy festival for the merchandise that comes with it and essentially just toss the magazine. Used book stores offload them cheap.
Obviously no retailer of new goods will do this, but unopened back issues sell of so much that they wouldn't break them apart.
Essentially the magazine is just an excuse to help creators sell dakimakura and lewd anime figures in book stores and other retailers that normally do not sell dakimakura or figures.
>I used the unboxing of Akiko's figure to actually tell my mother about her being mai waifu
>I had the idea of telling my mom after having her watch the movie Her with me but I bitched out
>I insisted on the topic of her being my girlfriend
Holy shit you guys. There's nothing wrong with having a waifu but taking it so seriously that you're "coming out" to your parents and "insisting" her being your girlfriend is fucking pathetic. When did /a/ turn into /jp/?
No one will ever know
Thats a nice tie, but not nice enough for 3.5k, I can get a really good one for $10.
I still find it hard to believe people actually have a waifu. It was just supposed to be something done for fun and to keep normies out.
It must be a nice to be a normalfag.
Not him but,
"Coming out" to your parents is pushing it
If I wear this will I go from part time worker to CEO?
NSFW, open at your own risk.
Who do you think will get this treatment?
people are gonna shit on you for saying that even though I agree with you 100%
People trying too hard to fit in with the /a/ hivemind.
Not if they expect you to live a life of 3DPD. Its best to let them know early on your not interested in pigs.
"Coming out" to your parents sounds more normalfag than anything.
>Holy shit you guys. There's nothing wrong with having a waifu but taking it so seriously that you're "coming out" to your parents and "insisting" her being your girlfriend is fucking pathetic. When did /a/ turn into /jp/?
how new are you? People on /a/ take the waifu thing seriously. The people who "come out" to their family DO belong on /jp/ though.
Who cares, you can show that through your actions.
You don't need to blab to mommy and daddy about your 2D waifu. It's just begging for attention.
I believe the term your looking for is "blogshit". No one cares that this faggot told his mom about his slut of a waifu. Nor should anyone be put off by people like this unless your new.
>People on /a/ take the waifu thing seriously.
Only since 2010.
anyone been keeping up with the ridiculous amount of sailor moon stuff coming out? I already preordered a larger scale compact, but I'm having such a hard time deciding what I need to buy and what's not essential. my wallet is crying.
I have the original compact, its all beat up from me playing with it as a child though. I may just get the new one for display purposes.
I hope you realize that you don't need shit like that. Although I have doubt about the quality of the majority of everything that's coming out.
This. It's all good and fun to have a waifu and all that shit but the level some of these guys take it is insane. That said, it's why I love /a/. Never change you crazy fucks.
>I hope you realize that you don't need shit like that.
You understand nothing.
Went ahead and ordered Elin Lancer from E2046. If Arcadia ever get around to doing it, I'm fairly sure they will nerf the lance length. Or even mess with other parts of it, like the Berserker. That was quite the letdown.
/v/ pls go
>why want them by Koto when MF has the better quality?
Not this time. Olivia looks much better than Cerberus.
As expected from /v/.
If you are looking from far away maybe, MF is way better than Koto at paint and detailing.
Do you even understand the /v/ responses, or are you just trying to fit in?
You are comparing a damn prototype. While Koto has gotten better they can't hold a candle against Max Factory when it comes to detailing. Max Factory is one of the few companies who can perfectly approve the macro photo sessions with their Statues, rivaling Alter in that regard and even better than the parent company GSC.
Slut, Like father like daughter.
Nice samefag. Can you even formulate any sort of argument that doesn't resort to "fitting in".
Just came in.
Not pictured: figures that everyone else have posted a million times over.
Is that all you have?
Fuck yeah, Wonfes.
Maybe finally we will see another Caster. I hope I did good thing not ordering her.
Who are you quoting?
She is going to Bargin Bin
You did the right thing
Olivia's sculpt is a lot better. Unless Koto really fucks the painting on her I can't see how Cerberus could end up better. A so-so sculpt with an immaculate paint job is still a so-so sculpt.
What does the "Bargin Bin" mean?
Sorry, I'm new here.
>Trying this hard to fit in
>Olivia's sculpt is a lot better
And a good sculpt with a mediocre paint is just a waste.
Do what I'm doing, Anon. Pick your absolute favorite senshi and your most wished items, and only get those if they get released. Even then only buy them if they meet your standards. If you buy every little thing you'll find yourself with out money and possibly space, for the items you really want.
she already showed up on mandarake for 7k
It is exactly how it sounds.
>repeating yourself like an autistic child
get help retard
what does bargain bin mean anywhere else on earth?
How much were they total?
Have you really never heard that term? It's used in real life too. The price will likely drop, significantly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bargain_bin
>Olivia's sculpt is a lot better.
Just like QuesQ figures have wonderful sculpt, look how that turns out when the paint is a mess.
>no thigh highs
>no tiny pantsu
The sukumizu will have to be really great for me to order her. At the moment I rather keep the money.
>get help retard
Damn man, you lost your cool, and you were so close to fitting in too.
>I hope you realize that you don't need shit like that.
do you even know what thread you're posting in?
I'm super tempted to buy the little compacts because they're so cheap for a set of 5, but I know that must say something about the quality. Even so, I can't help but want to pounce on almost everything being released.
Look into her hand anon, look into her puppy hand and try to tell her she isn't going to be amazing.
I like cerberus more. Might pick Olivia as well if she ends up good, but I don't have much hope.
Just think of it like I do anon, even if you buy them and dont like them, thats minimal money wasted, and cute toys to give to your nieces.
I've already decided on the two senshi that I love the most, and I know what I'd drop cash for in a second. But it's the fact that a lot of stuff is being released in groups (all the outer senshi + usagi and chibi moon? i love the outer senshi, i have a hard time passing up shit like that).
>comparing Koto to QuesQ
Look at her fucking face. I mean don't get me wrong, overall it's a nice figure and I'll probably be picking her up once she's released. I'm just confident that Olivia will turn out nicer, even with the inevitable minor flaws.
¥5,990 shipping included
I don't mind her face really, since all the expressiveness and details in a face you could ever want on a fig is given to her hands.
The only thing that would bother me would be if they got her pantsu wrong, but they nailed that perfectly.
Damn. I love buying CDs and such but it's always hard for me to justify purchasing them when the prices are usually 1500+ per CD even before shipping, and that's for singles.
What a waste. It's like they don't even get the attraction of Elin lancers.
This just occurred to me, is it possible to order stuff off the japanese side of AmiAmi to western addresses?
It's just I see two artbooks I'd like and for some reason they are only listed under the .jp domain.
>Importing Clothes to Mexico
Prepare your anus for taxes James, especially if it says "Made in China"
I cant decide weather I really like that style, or not.
I've never read the series, but that figure makes me want to.
Read or watch, do it!
oh no my post got deleted :(
I may just buy it for her description alone
>If she becomes frightened or angry, she'll pull her sweatsuit over her head and climb on top of a streetlamp.
Is it extremely plebian if I have segmented posters printed so I pay next to nothing per poster \?
More like enjoy them. The anti-dumping taxes for shoes and clothing were removed a bit more than a year ago.
Get with the times.
Don't do it, Square Enix has horrid quality
Watching it for Maaya Sakamoto is reason enough
Ah, I forgot about that.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
A certain crack whore review
Nothing at all~
Hate to see what the "regular edition" would've looked like if they made one.
Do these figures move or anything? Give BJs?
What the hell do you do with them?
Look at them, repose them. What do you do with yours?
I thought it looked pretty nice but once I looked at it from different angles I find there's something off with the face.
The proportion of the arms and torso also makes her look lanky
Did they put a vagina it it or is it just none existant.
I don't have any. That's what I wanted to know.
So pay $200 for something to feel awesome about for the first 5 minutes? Then what? It sits there forever and no one else sees it but you? I'd rather just buy a PC upgrade.
just ordered this.
>Then what? It sits there forever and no one else sees it but you?
That outfit is so cute. Floral dresses are so great.
>for the first 5 minutes?
This is not for you
Welcome to the world of Collectible ANYTHING
So the first 30 minutes, then hotglue?
Collecting stuff isn't for everyone. If you don't think you'd enjoy it, that's fine.
Most of us actually find joy every day for owning something. And taking regular care of them just fuels it further.
>I'd rather just buy a PC upgrade.
And have it become obsolete and outdated in a week, only to be replaced with more upgrades that are destined to meet the same fate as their predecessor?
I'd hotglue patchi
What the can i buy with 1250 yen?
I'll give you 1000 yen
Is this an original character? What kind of material? I would buy one.
A toothless BJ
Not him but yes it's an original character. I nearly bought one myself but ultimately decided against it

>doesn't look like you can ship overseas

>want to buy the DELCO shelf but wouldn't make sense just for one

Wish I was a millionaire so I could buy a house with a room dedicated for figs.
Same sculptor as Satan.
You should be able to still find some somewhere, especially the slightly more expensive ones that come with the telephone card. I recently got ahold of http://takumimakura.com/catalog/index.php?id=039 which was from much longer ago. You'll have to get a buyer though yeah
Just live on a tight budget and save up for your chinese toys, anon.
Oh, sweet mother of god.
How good have FREEing's recent 1/8 been?
Still on the fence if I should preorder Senbonzakura Miku.
Do it for Miku. She needs more of your money.
I asked the same thing at the beginning of the thread. Just read the responses there.
Well shit, it's on AmiAmi with a Tenative Preorder for late January. Do you think they will have any spares?
Hopefully. I got it there and I'm not all too concerned
Didn't see that, thanks anon
I'm not usually fond of the ones I see on AmiAmi, but I don't know how such a good one got past my eyes.
COSPA releases some alright ones but none tricot
Don't do it, the figure is okay and the mediocrity is masked by the "dynamic" pose that only looks good in one or two certain angles. In all other angles, you see a figure trying to break her back and twist her neck.
Does COSPA even do original characters? I swore they did only anime-aired characters only.
I've only seen anime characters
I there any original character that rules over all dakis, like Miku is to vocaloid?
>get my annual Christmas package from my Japanese friend
>get a Kurisu figma, Max factory x Masaki apsy.
>My mother comes home, sees figma, consummate smart ass.

Remember this day. And when the time comes, put her in a home.
In the last 2-3 months there have been at least 10+ Shimakaze dakis.
I'm a 21 year old cripple posting on /a/. What do you honestly expect of me?
It's a pretty sweet haul, filled with S;G goods.
We live next to an old folks retirement village. I've repeatedly threatened to throw them both over the fence and give all their shit a Viking funeral down the river.
No, Cospa does not. It's a company that produces a lot of character merchandise and branch companies specifically for cosplay, party clothing, Graphigs, and figures (Resinya). The original things it does make are like its Item-ya line of clothing or "general use cosplay clothing" stuff.
Should I wait for Wonfes to see if another figure of her comes out?
>21 year old cripple
yeah sure, when are you going to start applying for welfare checks you lazy ass NEET?
What's a US retailer I can buy h-manga from, please?
Phat looks passable, amiami's look pregnant and have that same mouth syndrome
There's only japan sites in the guide
I'm tempted to buy all the Yamato girls.
Can anyone remind me if Wing sucks or not?
Because this is desirable to me
12 LONGEST DAYS OF MY LIFE
>As we informed that we reinforce your package this time, however, we confirmed that your order had been shipped without any arrangement.
>Therefore, we arrange a new order with reinforcement and stopped to deliver the original order.
>The estimate delivery date is February 1st to February 2nd.
All I asked was if they could combine 2 orders so one of my BD's don't come in those shitty envelopes. If the new order does not have the first press bonuses Imma be pissed.
Hopefully it will work out, guess I'll find out in a few days.
Anon, pls no bully.
Anywaaaaays. I've got this figma, plus some other stuff I've collected over the years. Should I unbox this stuff and enjoy it, or just keep it boxed up for possible resale?
I mean, I've got ¥12100 worth of stuff here, but no where to safely display it, even if I really like it.
You want to buy h-manga from some US retailer that is gonna overprice it so much that you'll pay the same that if you went to some jap site? Do you really fear customs that much?
What about loli manga?
And here I was trying to tell myself I wouldn't get anything Kancolle related
Figures are meant for displaying, display them.
You can still re-sell them, used, which is kind-of the case with almost anything you own.
True, I guess I aught just clean a space for them or sell what I don't want, even just to get rid of all these useless boxes taking up space.
Still not worth the bandwagon
You want english or moon text hentai
Your life must be pretty shitty then.
Maybe he wants localized h-manga.
Is this your first month in the hobby?
Whatever happened that Tiki 1/1 scale
It's a GK.
>just to get rid of all these useless boxes taking up space.
I meant the actual shipping boxes all this stuff is inside.
Hey, much better than the life of an EOP like you (^:
No it's not it's being made by Vertex.
So I emailed Amiami about an item in my January order changing release date and all they told me was that I can that order with my February order. Should I email them again about the January items?
>It was a Christmas present from a friend, I didn't spend a yen anon, so the total isn't indicative of anything other than how kind my friend is.
That one doesn't look like the illustration.
I have Phat's.
It's sitting in its box inside my closet because it's too lewd.
Oh god, thank you for clarifying that.
You might be thinking of the one in the cup.
He's not the one reposting that ugly piece of plastic every thread.
Excellent sculpt, mediocre paint job .
>eyes look like she's begging for it
>fuck up the entire expression when painted
why does this happen.
Well yeah why would you want a 1/8 of fairy?
Oh, I see.
She's fucking tiny, I'm guessing.
akadot, project.xxx, jlist, etc
Why are the Japs glorifying shitty ships that got absolutely wrecked in WWII?
I mean, holy shit they got CRUSHED.
You don't see the US glorifying the USS Pueblo, or the Vietnam war, or the fuckin Bay of Pigs.
Because US doesn't know how to make moe ship daughterus.
How do I just get the toy from a magazine bundle? I don't want to pay shipping for a magazine I can't read.
I would buy a anthropomorphic personification of the USS Enterprise.
She'd be so moe.
Or USS Hornet-tan, she'd be a loli with health problems that ends up dying really quickly.
>How do I just get the toy from a magazine bundle?
Wow, you must be fun at party.
Go to Japan, go to a store, rip the toy from the magazine, then leave store.
I wouldn't mind being in his position
>Wow, you must be fun at party.
Stop this shit. Not all of us are attention whores that act on the internet in the same way we do in person tripshit.
Shimakaze-chan got plowed by over a dozen P-47 Thunderbolts.
Triangle chokes are actually very unpleasant. It feels like your head is going to pop off. Also you lose consciousness very quickly.
It has nothing to do with being an attention whore and everything to do with asking stupid questions that basically amount to "stop having fun!"
Serves the whore right.
I read that doujin too.
As long as my head is near her crotch it's a-okay
As funny as it may sound, it's based on fact.
The Super-Destroyer Shimakaze got destroyed by an entire wing of P-47s dropping their 500lb bombs on her on the Battle of Ormoc bay.
She got gangbanged by more than a dozen of fat, heavy, lumbering, and nearly god damn indestructible American jocks.
I see nothing on MFC. Is this a GK?
So, took a whole fleet to take out a single ship?
That's quite impressive.
This just arrived today, I usually don't buyfag but I wanted it pretty bad
d-did I do good?
Has anybody ordered from mandarake? How much was shipping?
It's brilliant krone, brilliant!
No one has, you'll have to test it for us.
That seventh disk...
When will Gift make Fumos of characters that are not 2chu?
With new Asuka from Alter they'll also do another Rei and a Kaowru right?
Still waiting on 金剛デース
best ship never
You have shit taste, please kill yourself.
>I'm Destroyer Shimakaze. I won't lose to anyone in speed. Swiftly like the island breeze.
>Mac Donald's Happy Meal Toy.gif
We must be swift, as a coursing river,
WITH ALL THE FORCE OF A GREAT TYPHOON!
How come it was so cheap?
Beach queens, box damage.
Is there a box that ISN'T listed as damaged on mandarake, ever?
Oh shit, thought it was worth more like the IS figurines. Oh well.
Also this >>101076560
>bandwagoned so hard yellow stop blogging
Just bought my first figure on amiami along with a game I pre-ordered which combine shipping around 2,220 for yen EMS.
Not bad, I thought it was going to be more than that.
Huh parcelforce delivered my manda parcel before 9am and after spending two days in customs i didn't have to pay anything so overall i am in a good mood today.
Here is one half of the parcel.
And here is the other half.
Were those exclusive? I don't remember seeing them.
The first one is set A, i already have set B, from type-moon fes and the second one is from C82.
Got this yesterday. Both the poster and the booklet came with the Newtype.
Finally, Hawk get merchandise he deserve.
Also just got the pay request for Dizzy from amiami.
>I'd rather just buy a PC upgrade.
you do that once a year or so. what are you doing with the money that keeps piling up the rest of the year?
I've added all my stuff on Honto, selected SAL for shipping, but my total to pay is just the price of all the books. Am I missing something here? Where can I find the shipping costs?
>Why are the Japs glorifying shitty ships that got absolutely wrecked in WWII?
nationalism + cute girls
>or the Vietnam war
I'm sure there are FPS games out there covering that
What do you do when you can't stop checking your package tracking?
use SAL next time.
Why is this so cheap?
All 9 volumes of TLRD for $35
still on nippon-yasan for 16,500¥
Use an app or an extension like Update Scanner. Set the latter to 30 minutes or something like that. You'll learn to stop checking manually.
You don't know until they ship. For 5 manga it should be around 1000-1200 JPY.
how do people like this HomuHomu?
Shipping is brutal
Fair enough, at least it's a third of what Amazon was charging. I was a little tempted to go for boat mail, but 3 months is just too long to wait.
Still nothing from BiJ.
I have no idea, I thought the series was shit when I finished watching it, although my sister thought it was good and she liked that crap.
I'm more impressed by volume 8 price.
I believe it could be cheaper than that, I've heard of people paying around 900 yen for 4 books with airmail, but it depends where its going to
It also seems like more than 4 books forces them to move up to the next package size, so that probably contributes too
Finally I can have something to go along with my BRS 2035 Figma
Is it worth getting a subscription to a magazine (say for example Dengeki G's) just for the goods? Are they included in every issue or just some of them? Also I'm thinking of learning japanese, so maybe the magazines themselves could help too.
Yea, has to do with rule 2
What does Nippon-Yasan mean with "Japanese version"? Are they sometimes selling bootlegs or what?
I want to order some manga, I'm thinking of getting 4-5 manga's, how much does amazon.co.jp charge for shipping?
800 base + 400 for each. Better to order off honto or CDJapan.
Don't care, I want a semi-lewd Homucifer.
Oh wow that's lame, well alright I'll try either one of those websites.
Amazon JP is good for artbooks though.
>Up >1 cent and above the 90JPY:AUD threshold
Am I missing something?
Hmmm...Ranko going up on 30th.
>Release in June
i too am patiently awaiting this one
Well fuck Paypal for not updating because I just paid for something at 84JPY to the dollar
>using paypal conversion
That's because they make money by giving you a crap exchange rate.
Paypal takes a huge cut after all the different fees. It was costing me about 10% more when I compared it with a credit card transaction.
Thinking about it now, I should have been less lazy and gotten my card in order instead of just throwing away $70.
Well I did not know, might start using my Visa then from now on
Your bank will also charge a transaction fee.
Mine is 4.6% or some shit which is worse than Paypal simply skimming 3 cents off the dollar.
Visa has a foreign exchange rate too. The only way you'll pay the true rate is if you have a card that doesn't have foreign exchange rates.
My first and second real buy fag orders have yet to be released. But i feel my will braking again
paypal, currency conversion fees, visa fees, shipping, taxes, customs. sometimes forwarding on top of that
worst case I remember was
>buy something with a price of ~50€ according to then-current conversion rate
>total ends up being 130€
So I'm screwed if I do and screwed if I don't, you'd think I would be used to it by now. Guess I'll stick with Paypal
some stores accept bank transfers, although they may take a few days to process. if you can do a IBAN transfer straight from your account that's probably the most efficient method
It's really worth getting one of those cards for when you travel or if you buyfag a lot. Otherwise you get your shit pushed in with fees and higher interest on foreign transactions. The downside is that almost all of those cards come with annual fees.
That ~10% difference was from comparing the final charge in AUD between Paypal:$263 and visa: $240 (which I couldn't complete due to an extra security step)
Some cards also don't charge for international transactions/currency conversions. Most of the ones I've seen require a yearly fee though.
Apparently I"m retarded and can't read, >>101081889
already pointed this out.
What is this? Can't find it on MFC.
>covers and case has been renewed into soft cover style!
What does this mean?
If it's like the Hidamari book, the original was cardboard sleeve but this is probably now rubber/plastic.
Great, I just got it too.
As did I. Not pleased, my Jan. shipment was sent out just a few days ago.
Mine is 2.0% so it is kind of ok.
How about this one?
>tfw you will never make millions out of mouthbreathing neckbeards buying your idiotic figurines
>implying I don't work for Griffon
Unless you're a chink like Dannychoo.
>Come buy shitty merchandise of my mascot
>Watch my shitty anime
>ching ching ching fried rice
>we'll never get a Queen Lucie figure
So do you guys buys this shit and sell them on at a higher price somewhere else? What's the catch?
Got a payment email which is early since it is suppose to come out in 2 days.
F/HA for Vita announced
I was going to preorder it, but if the payment is that soon then there's no way that's happening.
thank you for the heads up.
I really do want that artbook though
Nothing, weeaboos are great to profit off of.
I don't know about everyone else, but I like to sit with my figures in a circle around me so they can watch me jack off. But that's just me.
Yup and they also want a CC instead of Paypal since it is a 18+ game.
These just shipped out. SAL is pretty fast here and I should have them in 1 or 2 weeks.
How shit is my taste?
Considering a friend of mine wants an Izanagi, not bad.
He looks pretty neat. The joints seem to blend in well with his design. Otherwise I would have reconsidered, since the friend I'm buying them for is a big persona fan but doesn't seem to have many posables.
Slowpoke plus I'm sure this has been mentioned already, but it looks like even EMS plus custom fees would be cheaper or almost the same (plus faster) than the new N-Y shipping option.
This is for one scale.
You are correct. Transilogistic is only favourable with big orders bacause the shipping fee remains the same.
Transi-logistic is that new shipping method which promised no tax wasn't it?
That was all a lie, anon.
I get none of these problems with a debit card. I only use credit cards for domestic purchases.
Pretty good except
Shit nigger, what are you doing.
This is a random huge order, see the convenience now?
That almost seems to good to be true.
There has to be a catch.
I know, but It was $10. Just a case of why the hell not.
read their trans logistic rules.
You always pay taxes. That's the catch. Also, they process all orders once a week. If you haven't ordered by then, you will have an extra week of waiting to look forward to.
>tons of figure boxes
>not a single box big enough to put them all in it
Moment like this that I wish I have a 4th dimension pocket.
>cramming everything in a bag of holding
>not arranging your collection in mage’s magnificent mansion
do you even wizard?
Gonna buy that so hard.
Meanwhile, I got these for 400 and 200 yen per box. Dem amiami extreme bargains.
What exactly are those?
Imagine not knowing about one of the greatest goldmines in modern history.
New buyfag here: Is there any specific beginner guide for buying and building Gundam mechs? Or should I go to /m/ for that?
fancy rectangular clear cards
I guess one can use them as bookmarks.
Oh. Damn, I kind of want them even though I'd have no use for them and don't know how I'd display them. I told myself I'd just stick to scales and figmas of CG because I don't want to put too much money into it but I don't see myself lasting.
I'm putting some of my figures (w/boxes) into long-term storage, but I don't want them exposed to dust and other similar elements. Would using plastic to cover them be safe?
/toy/ usually has a solid gunpla thread going with a guide similar to our buyfag thread. Plenty of good info on gunpla and plamo.
Don't bother buying PG unless you are actually going to bother painting them with an airbrush.
I just got them on a whim to go along with my shipment, since they were so cheap.
One box nets you the whole collection, btw. All 22 designs are there.
huh, didn't even know there's a toy board. Thanks anon.
>Fate/Stay Night anime written as continuation of F/Z
>Written by Nasu
Can't wait to see what this means figure wise.
I'm so glad this got pushed back.
Was there an announcement somewhere?
Just a little
Still have to wait for the magazine though
Inside the pocket is endless amount of platform that hold the gadgets. Just so you know.
Maybe GoB like Gil's treasury. I can shot out my collection as projectile.
Thanks, I didn't notice that thread in the catalog. At least I'll have something to play for my Vita now.
Doraemon, where the things that they take for granted are actually the best inventions out of all the shitty stuffs he pulls out. The pocket, the door and the time machine.
Cheap traveling and great for smuggling business.
Shrink ray is useful too.
I have a mighty need for the copying mirror.
>copy piles of money
Honestly though if you had any one of the good inventions you could make yourself rich.
>I apparently bought some lame ass rikka mug from jew-list a month ago
oh well... not sure why.
>mfw people claim Griffon figures are great
This is why I hate you, MFC.
>package has been stuck at "arrival at outward office of exchange" for a day now
Great. I guess they're twiddling their thumbs while my package sits there doing fuck all.
Hope you like your letter from customs.
e-ems isthe best
Wow, what did you order?
gsc aresene and akane.
I don't know what the hell is going on because according to japanpost it dispatched back on the 21st and up until about three days ago it was listed as in transit on usps.
