Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more
11 days until WonFes
So mikan from alter has no known release date.
Ami Ami would be the best/cheapest place to preorder her once she's up right?
also is there a danger of it selling out quickly?
Come on, IH needs meatier thighs.
Yes and probably
Anon said he'd post them in this thread
Face looks pretty good. Pose looks stiff though.
Oh hey, new thread.
Slutterfly sister PVC when?
Bingo sheets. Not the anon who did the previous wonfes bingo.
I'm going to watch Olympics instead, Putin told me to
Start betting on her name. Most likely related to flowers.
Hoping for movie figures at wonfes as I like the outfits.
Why won't Aniplex of America fucking license Idolm@ster already?
They could easily make a lot of money on it. I would easily be willing to drop $200-$300 for it.
What are you trying to do, cause event horizons?
Would like Jeanne to get a spot
I want a miku append model in the style of tda.
The postage tracker said this was still in Tokyo's outward office of exchange so this was a nice surprise to get in the mail. Nothing quite like the courtesy of Japanese ebay users.
I don't know about you, but the Japanese idol culture isn't widely known or accepted in the US, so it'd be a pretty foreign idea to most folks and a hard sell.
I love getting things on ebay from people in japan.
They send the nicest letters.
>can't even walk in a straight line
My happy meal toy is better than this.
That's great, thanks anon.
This instant winner might be too easy though.
Yeah but they put 3 Shiny Festa games on the app stores for $54 each and people are buying them so there is a market.
Hate to say it, but the sheets are pretty homolust.
Too many male or male-centric/female-oriented series listed. Persona 3 AND 4? Really? Persona 3 is definitely having a ton of Aigis being released to go with Movie 2 in May, so that's pretty much guaranteed.
Are you female or gay by any chance?
Huh? There's one out.
I don't know why I haven't seen this before.
I caved.. First figure I've ever bought. What have you done to me /a/...
You are missing out.
Here you go.
I chose what seemed popular.
I did the layout randomly so there may be a winner.
>Not a single Arpeggio of Blue Steel.
I am pretty sure the maker of this bingo sheets is a fujoshi.
Hope Japan have good enough taste for a Kongo scale.
There's no warehouse or anything physical involved with DLCs and the games aren't exactly packed with dialog, so it's not a lot of work or risk and people downloading the stuff would know what it is already (or at least be fans of rhythm/music-based games).
Anime though would be a different sell, because you're trying to attract the anime-viewing audience and even on /a/, Idolm@ster wasn't super popular. There haven't been any sort of Idolm@ster-related promotions at western conventions and cosplayers number in the very few. It's honestly very niche within the anime market itself. Telling people that it's about "girls trying to be pop stars" glosses over how different the idealized idol culture is from the western type.
This has finally hit the bargain bins, btw.
Without a mention of GSC's kiss hot, more painted sins and more senrans by alter?
>Any Oyari Ashito
I hope so. My money is on this.
Sins are no brainer
Same with Senran
Kissshot does need a autowin spot though
I could always use more Tenshi, I hope I get to check that one this time
I should ask Kawahara if he'd recently signed any papers that read "We want to make Sinon fig, permission pls. PS it's Griffon".
At least it's a good figure of the best girl of her respective series.
There are at least 3 Oyari figures already in the works. So its guaranteed.
1/4 Percival by Freeing, more Arthur and Ivan ella have figured.
I guess that makes sense, but there's bound to be at least a prize for SamFlam. I'd rather Bunny Laura be an instant winner.
I just want to see daily anon finally triumph. ;_;
Is that supposed to be Sophie?
Who the fuck is Sophie?
Wished they had this out
I hope they get her legs right
To be more specific there should be a eiyuu senki box.
Even a Raita Mahou Shoujo would be good.
>a censored fig
Who the fuck would literally by this? My god.
Haruna with cast-off option too.
You her? How much? Please don't say 40 bucks of ebay
Not even the hairstyle is the same. Much less everything else, starting with the face.
I wouldn't mind the whole cast to be honest.
Should replace one of the Persona squares with unexpected KanColle ship daughters.
Go to sleep
I want to go her world and have her give me a private dance.
>extremely long purple twintails and a relatively flat chest
Seeing the OP thumbnail, it would be a pretty obvious mistake, especially if you weren't familiar with the actual character of the figure.
I've only seen censored pictures, but then again I haven't been to EVERY figure site.
You idiot, you can peel the pixels off the actual figure.
>People mistaking Gutsugutsu for Sophie
>Naoe in OP
This is a good thread already.
How many of you keep a figure or two around your desk/work area?
The story of my fucking life....
Sophie's twin tails are way shorter. Plus the eye color is enough to give it away, and the hairpin and gloves. And that's just from the thumbnail.
My desk is a shithole so no.
Should use that image for SLIPPERY SLOPE
I have three witches on the shelf above my desk.
All my figures are at my desk right now, I'll probably move all of them except for my waifu over to my new billy once I get my January order in.
Who is you're waifu anon?
... how much because it was sold out twice after i bought one?
My god, I would be broke.
I was going to make one myself, but this actually fits all the bills.
If an honest looking Jew knocked on your door and offered to pay you 150% of the cost of your collection for the whole lot, what would you do?
not him but great taste, friendo
Turn around 360 degrees and walk away
All or nothing deal? At what cost, exactly what we paid or the release price?
I wouldn't consider doing so myself, I have too many figures that I spent a lot of time looking for and finally obtained. Others I could probably do without, but not my entire collection
most needless alternate color ver ever
He wasn't a typical buyfag though, he was just a faggot who came here and used the guide.
Thanks anon, the road of the Ritsu buyfag is a painful one. She has so many figures, but so few good ones
150% of what you paid, you come out ahead no matter what.
Welcome to OS limited editions, that said, I Like her over the original, but still think a black version would be better.
I just want to be close to her. To see her dance in her full glory, to hear sweet words issuing from her cute lips. I've been playing Project Diva F but it still doesn't feel like enough. There has to be some magic ritual, some prayer, some digitization technology which will allow me to be with Miku. I'd buyfag the shit out of that.
I did before Winter Break, but I've been too lazy to set them up again.
No, most of my figures are currently 200% or more of what I paid.
>for the whole lot.
Most probably yes, i never buy stuff higher than retail price anyway.
It's kinda nice cause the legging appear transparent
in any case I want to motorboat Sonico's ass
Waifu figures:Not even for 300%
These are my waifu's figures.
There are many like them but these are mine
Without my figures of her I am useless
Without me the figures of her are useless
If it includes what I paid for shipping, I'll take it.
As a poorfag I will finally know the pleasure of having multiple boxes inside a bigger one delivered to my door.
I wish that the people who made the nice Mio 1/6 with bass & amp made a Ritsu 1/6 with a nice drum set.
I admire your devotion. If only I had a waifu my life might have meaning like yours does.
>telling more people his story.
Last one, but if anybody want me to add anything, do tell.
Nah, even that much of a markup isn't enough to make up for the time and effort put into finding some figures that are near impossible to find today or stupid expensive, like the GSC MuvLuv figures, TLR's Yami and Lala, Lacia, and so forth. I have them, I don't want to sell them off not knowing that I can replace them for sure.
>Any Gatchaman Crowds
I pray every night to the gods of buyfaggotry that there will be.
Depends, there are a few items in my collection that are one-of-a-kind or so rare that it's highly unlikely I can re-buy it.
I enjoy mine too much so no. What a silly idea.
Instant winner: painted figma Archer or Lucina.
>finally a delicious Ruirui scale
>it's by Griffon
Pretty much this >>101126545, I have items that were limited to certain events or theaters and I sent proxies to go buy them for me at retail value and the resell value is approximately 6X original price in Japan alone. I also have items that I bought for 80% discount due to diligent bargain-hunting and I won't be able to come across such deals again.
Hajime scale by Max Factory
A man can dream
So long as that isn't the case I'd buy it in a heartbeat. It'd be my first male figure to boot, not that anyone would be able to tell.
God damn what I would pay for some GATCHA
I'm seriously close to caving and getting the kyoani figure
If he's done right, everyone should be able to tell because he's the sort of delicious trap who never completely loses his boyishness.
I'd actually kind of like a figma
Because apparently I'm mentally 12 and I think posing things is fun.
>Your order was cancelled because the items were sold out.
Hold me, /a/.
I don't do it for the money, I do it for the love.
That -$80-120 in my bank account is rectified as soon as I sign for that package.
So long as he's cute and the details subtle, all is well.
To each their own. I like statues myself. I wouldn't want a nendo of him though, and I do collect nendos as well.
Only if you like pinprick mouths.
I'm not being picky but even if your picture is that resolution you could at least reduce the filesize.
doesn't make you mentally young, everyone has their own interests.
Has anyone gotten a daki pillow from Royal Pillow? I was thinking about getting the gel one but I am not sure if they are legitimate.
Hear hear, I still don't actually have any figs of her because none of them seem worth it, it's a shame.
Shit I didn't even notice, I just saved it from a thread way back when. My bad.
you fags have bent the will of my penis and I am ready to buy this glorious statue. Is N-Y the cheapest place to get her?
Also I saw a anime had been announced but what is the source material for this line? I couldn't find anything about it being a VN which is what I suspected.
forgot to post pic cause I am tarded
The Fuck are you even talking about?
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
Bummer anon, I've only got the MF 1/7 and I' would recommend it but I only got it because of my personal love of girls in jackets. Here's hoping we get just one more figure with the last roll of the dice.
There is no source besides the confessions on the site.
「テイルズ オブ ヴェスペリア エステリーゼ・シデス・ヒュラッセイン」 2月6日（木）出荷予定
Hang in there, anon. 11 days.
That's a funny way to spell 'never'.
11 days before anon commits seppuku
I don't get why they do that.
I swear if this is at wonfes I'm gunna buy myself a bottle of rum to celebrate.
My scales are on two shelves above my desk. I do have RD Eva 01 and revo Raiden on my desk with me though.
I wish I gave a fuck about IS, cause I really like this bunnysuit design and the bunnies. I really liked Charlotte's figure too, but alas.
1 down, 7 to go.
If people buys seven sins figures I don't see why not buy "x" figure only because you like the design, don't you think figures have artistic value?
If it doesn't exist anywhere else chances are it's a bootleg.
Is the cheapest place to buy N-Y?
Yes. Also the one with the most fucked up packaging.
Thanks for the new mascot anon.
same here. lately I have more been into buying figs for their artistic value and less because I care about the source material. that and everything I have is loli and don't want people to see then and put 2 and 2 together.
The last package I got from them had the figure's box wrapped in bubble wrap and padded with a bit of paper. One bad experience doesn't mean their packaging is always shit. Unless it's HLJ. Fucking shrinkwrap protects against nothing.
Yes, I have the cluster fiber one and it's great. Made in the USA, much better quality than the chinese ones.
The medium size is perfect for standard daki cases.
>Not superior sex incarnate Takao
Just look at her face, she's practically begging you to penetrate her hull and flood her engine room.
Also I think I may have suffered my first loss to SAL in 4 years, RIP Ikaruga.
Then again it's only been 4 weeks, CA master race.
She is getting a scale by Phat.
Just saying they have done the same for the 3 released sins. Plus they tend to overcharge for shipping, so you don't get what you pay for.
Check ebay for "Nano Nichijou."
Good, good...the hotgluing is upon us.
Thanks /a/non, I just ordered one.
It takes about a week to process and ship your order, so just be patient.
How much was the gel pillow?
I love pasties.
BRS trike soon, archer fig soon.
Nope. These things are worth more then I paid. Firstly some items got rare and would cost more then what I've paid back than. Secondly I spent at least days for finding the items I want browsing the Internet plus there is the time that items take to arrive. And because time is money he would also have to pay me for that.
That one does seem decent, if I end up getting one at all it's probably going to be that
no prob, bob!
>paying for time & labor
Now there's a deal I just might consider, if the Jew pays for the 6 years I've been in this hobby and time invested. It would be enough to pay for 2-3 years' worth of income and finance my wedding.
I''d told them to double the offer.
It is not like I will quite collecting soon, new fresh start might be fun.
Why is there such a big difference between 1/5 and 1/4?
I'm not seeing it.
Protip, the redhead is 1/4.5
Because math. Asign an arbitrary value and divide it by subsequent numbers, start with 1.
Logarithms, how do they work?
This is really cool.
You can't see it in this picture, but there's a 3D hologram effect on this thing that came with Annelotte and it looks fucking amazing.
I would hope so too, or else her eye would look really fucking wierd.
FuRyu Yaya is out.
>63k for this shit
Wow that looks bad
Poor Yaya fags.
>Saya no Uta
Did I miss something or is it just a shot in the dark?
That's shit even for a prize fig
my god it looks like someone painted it with pastels
They're not even trying with this one, bet the bootleg will look better than that.
Sad to say the Charl that came out with her isn't that great, either
This is my loot from the grab bag... I'm a bit disappointed. The mugs that you can't see are Little Busters one and one of the destroyers from Kancolle. The purple thing is icecube maker, in form of kanji.
As expected from country grown vegetables.
I can hear raspy breathing
I found some official wallscrolls that I really like, but the Buyfag guide says I should stick with custom-printing.
Is there really that much of a difference?
How much do you guys typically spend on shipping (Japan to US)?
Never ordered anything from overseas and I don't want to overspend. Buying off Mandarake.
A gorillion dollars.
Everyone here is a high earning CEO of some company. You're shit out of luck mate.
Poor Machine-Dollfags in general
Stop it boner. You can't assume control, her face is not that good.
Isn't mandarake forced EMS anyway?
If so you're about to be raped
Well, there is another reason.
Oh god, what happened to her leg?
As much as I feel like it. Usually $20 max per 2kg USAL small packet package.
Your standards are as low as always, James.
I have my sasami nendo waving at me.
I just buy what ever they have at the anime store at the mall
One of the only dolls I'd be willing to buy, as well as the Rozen Maiden ones.
That's actually a decent loot.
How much was the shipping for yours?
I have a special spot on my desk reserved for when I can finally afford her.
Not that bad i think.
What's that to the right of the Jack Skellington head? I'm on my phone and it's pixelated as fuck when I zoom in.
looks like a mini daki strap/keychain
clearly black thong.
Her trademark V string
It's a mini plush strap.
Anyone here own a Tenga? I've been thinking of getting one, but I don't know which one to get.
As if it really matters.
They shipped with Senjougahara on EMS it was 7000.
It's a Ro-Kyu-Bu SS plush phonestrap. 2 lewd 4 me to use though.
I used it like 5 times and it felt like shit.
Sweet mother of god.
Big ass red paper bag?
extruded from anus
Random shot in the dark like DtB. Why the fuck would anything from DtB get released now? May as well put Witch Hunter Robin on one of those squares.
fucking hurry your shit up koto
it hurts looking at these yaya;s
You wouldn't a Meeko?
Yeah. The paper bag was only barely 1/4th filled. SAL would have been 5.8k so I thought I'd splurge a bit since it was like a Xmas present, I had to get it as fast as possible.
Too bad I have no idea what most of the series were/I don't care for them and I don't own an iPhone (those covers are for iPhone 4 and 5).
Miku isn't a canonical doll.
I would never a Miku anyways.
Tenga what? Fliphole was rubbish and not worth half the price they charge for one, but the 3D series is 9/10 breddy gud
pic unrelated to tenga but quite related to buyfagging
I was mainly looking at the cheap 10-12$ ones like the deepthroat and the regular red one.
I've seen lots of other people in buyfag threads before say the 3D is god tier though, is it?
That reminds me, payday is near, and I think I'll finally go past the point of no return and get a Puni DX
That face looks like some new age Disney shit
Wouldn't say god tier, but pretty decent overall. The different patterns do vary noticeably in feel, I ended up buying the spiral and cube shaped ones. Spiral is more intense compared to the cube which is much softer and gentler. Being closed-ended they create a vacuum during use which improves performance.
They are designed to be very easy to keep clean and hygienic. They are also exceptionally durable, I have had one for nearly 2 years of regular use and have not had any issues. Worth what I paid for them.
Related to your picture, but how much did that elephant cost?
At least $100 shipping per order.
I order a lot of stuff though.
Pics of Nanoha, please.
Well, it looks like I'll be taking a bath for the first time in years.
That ktkm and ryujo ver.
Still, zkms one is the most unique. The only one that have cups and walk on her feet.
I wish that shimacup's ribbon acted like a propeller or maybe went side to side or both.
Baths are glorious. Shame that murrican tubs mostly suck for soaking.
>Shimakaze 2500, akagi 2000
Reasonable price, seeing it's nendo size.
I used your Tenga, the one with boner-control,
and it made me FEEL like a PIECE O' SHIT!
$50 of my country's currency
Before you get too carried away, it was a wall scroll that a buddy had but managed to break the top tube somehow (moving house or some shit) so I disassembled it and made it into a poster.
It's actually not so shiny in some pics. Might be their office lighting, I guess.
Might get a dozen shimacups.
>Want to buy a couple things on Mandarake
>Can't buy anything until I get paid at the end of the week
How fucked am I?
shimacup is based as heck and I hope they produce enough to satisfy demand. it's the perfect stocking stuffer for every little girl ever.
Wow, that foot.
Order now, they'll send a payment request in 3 or 4 days.
They're taking forever to reply anyways, so you're fine.
I haven't gotten a reply to either of my two emails I sent 2 and 1 week ago or the item i ordered a couple days ago.
I ordered something and got a reply the next day, maybe it's a specific store issue?
No Senrans? I look forward to Senrans
This made my day
It is. It's like one of those cheap mcd toys.
Oh wow, brings back memories of my childhood steamship toy.
He just wanted to show off his CD, he'll go away soon enough.
>not having auto-resize
All phones nowadays can resize images. Also, computers can as well.
>You should be thankful I'm even showing you at all! Do your own resizing!
>My first buyfag
>for my first anime
Sorry that you can't into browser configuration.
Enjoy getting doxxed, friend.
Behold my shit taste coupled with a job
what's behind that door, anon? What's so dangerous that you have to block it off?
What's in that closet? Is it even a closet? That seems kind of cool if it is.
Why is there a door in the middle of the wall
What company made the fig in the OP again?
Fucking wish it was a closet, then it would be usefull and not make alot of fucking noise. Its access to the AC/Heating unit for the complex.
Everything there is entrylevel /v/shit though.
Why are you guys so buttflustered about what things people chose to spend their money on? It's not your money, there's no point in caring so much.
>AC/Heating goes down for several suites
>service guys have to go in around your shit to work on it
I don't think you understand that term
Fuck off faggot, you probably have shit taste too
There is another access to same unit in empty unit. Checked first
At least that collection is fairly traditional. If a normal saw it they'd probably just think the dude likes robots and weapons and other cool normal boy stuff.
Mine has 1/3 scale dolls and assorted Figmas in it and is on display in my living room right on the landing of the front door.
My mother refuses to come to my house because of my collection.
That pose looks horribly awkward.
Your mom sounds like a bitch.
Thighs and arms are too skinny, boobs are too square-looking, hair lacks any detail, shitty pose
I swear to god if this is the only IH fig I am going to cry, possibly worse than Griffon
I wanna punch your mom in her throat
Oh wow. To that anon who said I was setting myself up for failure with WonFes expectations, it turned out even worse than I expected. Fuck
Not really she's a nice person just... traditional. She probably wanted a son that was into football and muscle cars and dating women and shit like that.
But instead of finding playboy mags in my room she found Newtype.
I don't give a fuck either way. I have my own house and if I wanna fill it with weird shit I'm damned well entitled to do so.
>AmiAmi: Your order is ready for payment
Finally, that cleaner cloth was holding up my order for a least a week
>Order with ems
>Have utmost confidence at packages position at all times
>Package is an enigma, acting upon it's own free will
Welp, hope they get here next week, or at least show up on usps...
Whoa, there was a re-release of this?
Damn. Looks better than my piece of shit--that color scheme is much more erotic.
Anyone got a payment request for Dizzy from BiJ?
>Signum changed from 'February' to 'from February'
Guys, where can I see what bonus the nextissue of a certain magazine will have? Or its cover and stuff like that? So that I can preorder it.
I'd really love to use EMS at times, but goddamn customs will fuck me if I do so. Being yuropoor and a buyfag is suffering.
How long until the Koimono mug comes out?
Fuck why are monogatari character goods so good? I love that art style
Use shops that undervalue. My last EMS from NY didn't get taxed.
Oh, you're right, I didn't see the "future releases" section. How much is the expedition fee for magazines?
I'd love to do that, but if my package gets spotted at customs and they ask me for the receipt or something like that, I'm pretty much fucked. I could try and edit the price written there with whatever software, but it's pretty risky if you ask me.
Disregard that, I can use the calculate shipping charge function.
>requested manda to devalue my single figure that costs 25k yens
>still no reply
>suddenly pic related
Okay, my asshole is now prepared for customs taxes.
Am I supposed to wait for a notification or can I just call customs up?
>Am I supposed to wait for a notification or can I just call customs up?
Call them for what? You'll be billed once you get your shit to your house
No idea how does it work in your country. Here they send me a letter.
Made another one.
It's the first time I've ever had a package shipped here and it's EMS. I heard that anything EMS is a sure ransom victim by philippine customs.
Logically they should send me a letter but I didn't realize that it's already been 2 days ago that it arrived here. Are people expected to pay for customs storage fees while waiting for that letter?
Non shit Inori fig for me.
You usually pay for storage and the cost of the letter. Although in my case these kinds of duties are pretty cheap, like 2-3 euro, compared to 23% vat.
Yukine Chris figma or scale when?
Wonfes pls deliver.
swing and miss
does that mean they're like breast mousepads?
Scales never, I'd say figma soon-ish.
Figs are mainly upstairs on shelves as I don't want the cat knocking them over, whereas the my desk/PC is on the lounge
>mfw full bingo
This Wonfes is going to suck if those two really are the only ones I care for.
I finally found this shit. It's almost here.
I wish they'd stop delaying my goddamn Tales of figures.
Is this going to be exclusive to the gsc store?
Did that quote originate from that Idolmaster doujinshi, or did it come from elsewhere?
Haven't watched this show but I really want Chris.
>Haven't watched this show
Well? Hop to it.
Insta-preorder. Senbonzakura Miku is always worth the risk.
instant winner should be rui rui beach "queen"
What are soem good locations to drop me port crystals?
That price is actually pretty good for FREEing. I will wait to see how the finished product turns out.
This is what happens when you mutli thread browse
Can't wait for the free figmas and scales.
Still feels a bit high since it's a 1/8.
So, nothing better then this for Magi?
Like full body equip Alibaba.
Could you have taken a worst picture? I can't see shit there; I think that there's some Valvrave and some Mass Effect.
For the guy that wanted the Fate EXTRA CCC sound drama (v0):
I only have papercraft Knight and Naruze on my desk. They're nice and cheerful.
Instant winner should be bunny laura or trike.
watch it and become an obsessed symphofag like me.
Late, but do you have a pic of that izanagi?
[x] touch fluffy ponytail
I believe we did business with the same person. The little note and origami made my day.
Anon, you can't afford to look at that ponytail. Let alone touch it.
What they might come out with a fig of her?! Aesome
Any way to track when an item/keyword I want goes on auction on YJA?
I'd sell my collection. I'm pretty unhappy with my collection since I have mostly figmas and nendo petits and really would like more scales.
I'd use that money and get a few nice scales that I can't afford right now.
The eggs are nice if you can find them cheap. They are supposed to be one use but really? You pay like 10 bucks for each little fucker. i just washed and reused till they broke.
I'm in a similar position. I have quite a few nendos taking up space and if I could sell them to make room for more scales I would. I started off with one nendo because it was small and wouldn't take up too much space, I never expected to get as many displays as I have now.
>Airmail in 5 days
Didn't know it's that awesome. T-thank RSAL ban.
Received Momo, no problems with attaching her tail, and I love how her outfit is painted so it look semi-transparent. Also I had no clue she got barely visible nipple bumps, and a cameltoe. But that might be my imagination drawing lewd things for me. The veil could be done better, it looks pretty thick.
Airmail is great. Very rarely get taxed and it often arrives in 3-5 days so it's nice. Always good to avoid Parcelshits ransom notes as well.
No, fuck that. My collection is very dear for me. Also why I have never had to mail a cancel request to Amiko: I think very thoroughly what I preorder, so i have no regrets.
Yeah, just go to options and go to your automatic alerts. You can even use boolean searches. You can store up to three searches. If you want more, just open more accounts.
I wish mine was as fast, it's pretty much SAL speed for me due to customs holding them for at least 2 weeks.
Ugh, she looks like one of those 'rap guys' girlfriends. Gross.
The 90's called, they want their song back.
Link to the video?
>going to grab money
>accidentally knock black gold saw off her stand
>trying to put sword handle back into sword
well at least i can just glue it back on when i get to work but this is just disappointing really
there should be an option to ship them encased in a block of acrylic glass.
A Day With... 初音ミクオタク- Virtual Idol
Thank you, I was having a hard time finding it on the Vice channel.
I think it was on the Vice Japan channel, but no problem.
The annoying part is that I looked on the Vice Japan channel too and still couldn't find it.
That video was as sad as it was endearing.
yuri is not my cup of tea.
My doujins are still awaiting custom clearance, usually they go straight through.
Its making me nervous.
I know that feel, this order should have been delivered today, but it looks like it's still up in Coventry while they decide how much they're going to tax me.
nor is it mine anon, there's not even any yuri in it, it's just a platonic relationship between two characters... not even close to yuri.
It's all those yuri fags in our threads that keep making this show out to be HibikixMiku OTP. Hmph.
Oh that is the same as mine, I seriously hope my doujins just come.
Use the parcelforce track trace to see if its still in international hub like mine.
Does U.S. get import taxes?
UK you mean.
There is VAT.
and books are VAT free in the UK.
Do you actually use EMS for books?
When they think your taste is shit.
What is this? Is it a new material better than 2 way tricot because I looked it up and cant find shit about it.
Proxy for toranoana, I should have a specified a shipping method to avoid EMS but nothing I can do now
The dream is dead.
Thanks, it looks like my order's been caught up in customs for some reason. It's just a couple of figures, nothing lewd. I don't really understand why this order is stalling.
This box is ridiculous. (She's 9cm tall, for reference.)
They're the exact same material, apparently.
If it looks like this then either they brought back the batch because they missed something or my doujins are holding up your order and I'm fucked.
would buy it already have a bootleg of the same design since it wasnt in stock at that time
>Fate/10years after framed photo
>200 release only
I HATE IT
Time to lurk yaj even though the price most likely be insane.
>Tfw everyone at Parcelforce Coventry is panicking over some doujins and a Saber Lion Nendoroid
Not even sure show I saved that picture
Ente Isle figs must be soon
How accurate is CDJapan's weight listing?
Don't trust any weight listing and expect some inflation. That's just how you should handle anything like that. Or be like some of us and just buy anyway and ignore weight penalties.
Oh. I just wanted to estimate how much my honto shipping would be. I make orders off CDJapan without caring about the weight listing, but I'm wondering how my Honto order will be split up since I have 19 books in that order.
>Wing's 1/7 Purple Heart going up tonight.
>Release in June
>Retail for 17,800yen
Nepunepu fan suffering
>bootleg of the same design
your shit taste makes me sick
Not sure what to make of this.
If I were to estimate, I would brace upwards to 25% more than what you are predicting. Packaging and stuff adds some silly weight and they could give you a bigger box than expected.
Some people just miss out on the order period completely. Bootleg dakis are ok in my opinion.
>Bootleg dakis are ok in my opinion
do you also buy shitty bootleg figures?
why would you waste money on buying garbage?
If I miss out on a release, it sucks, but im not so fucking desperate with shit taste I would go buy a daki that some talentless korean faggot drew buy poorly tracing over and say "its good enough"
Id rather save my money
who made that fig? i don't remember gutsugutsu's fig looking that good.
>bidding war over ebay for shitty cheap figma
We've gone WELL over its normal price because I'm certain AmiAmi is never gonna restock it.
>calling someone out on their shit taste
Haha, fucking hypocrite.
>why would you waste money on buying garbage?
But anon, it's you who's buying Sonico overpriced merchandise!
I don't know how you guys put up with SAL. I always do EMS or DHL buy decided to give RSAL a shot this time because I was low on cash. I realize this isn't even that bad but the lack of updates is driving me crazy. I really admire all of your patience.
guess u lose, huh
What the fuck is wrong with you
Bootleg dakis are widely accepted by buyfags and most are of better quality than legitimate ones
new as fuck
Maybe tomorrow our parcels will be free?
I put up with it becasue my customs will hold it for ransom regardless of priority mail or not, so I end up with the same speed for a lot more money.
I've had a parcel take 2 months to get to me.
man shut up i need this shit
Disgusting individuals they are
Gutsugutsu-chan is 2nd best girl
Customs really make EMS useless.
You pay for RSAL -> 2 and a bit weeks
EMS -> 2 weeks to arrive and then you have to wait for a customs letter and then pay for it and then wait for it be delivered.
Makes faster shipping a pointless spending.
>mfw bitch babbys crying a river because their EMS is taking more than 5 days
but what did u bid on?
>Paying 2000 Shekels for a McD wind-up plastic toy
>the 12th of each month
Do they specifically wait for the 12th for shits and giggles.
Shoot yourself on the foot and leave.
No, that's the month, for some fucked up reason.
>need to move out of my parents house
>need to sell it to do that
Help me /a/
At least it's old toy quality, new McD toys are all utter shit.
I usually USAL and it takes 2-3 weeks, but this RSAL looks like it might come as fast as EMS (1 week). Haven't used any registered shipping in such a long time, so I forgot how long it usually sits in LA.
>being this mad
How about you go shoot yourself and leave.
>sell a figure to move out
Don't sell it and don't move out.
I give you a dollar for it. You pay the transport.
>tries to type correctly
>fails at punctuation again
Nice statement, faggot.
What type of nigger country do you live in that one figure decides if you leave the house or not.
I don't know how you're expecting one figure to help you move out.
Only Horo figures can rake in that kind of money.
Not third best girl
How does selling that figure help you move out of your parents house?
They better be, otherwise I will be forced to pay whatever bullshit fee they chuck my way because I'm a little faget that just wants his figures.
Well you understood what I meant, what more do you need?
Why do people even use SAL?
I've used USAL for years and never had a problem. It takes long but saves me more money for more plastic butts.
You are everything that is wrong with today's youth.
Slower than slow
So? How is that a problem?
Chie from purse owner to do with Yukiko. DAVE is always in stock and cheap because nobody cares, Chie is harder.
I'm entry level, only recently started with this but I'm already getting worked up.
Higher risk for the stuff.
I feel like my latest order would have almost been the same, ended up being 3000 for sal, for two figs, all because they have to use two boxes.
Didn't think the alter laura/charlotte were that big, but i feel like it would have been 40 or so for ems in one box.
It helps me pay the first month rent and food in advance. After that I'm golden.
By which I meant "go".
It's been a long day.
Just sell your boypussy.
This might be a little heavy for just 9 DVDs...
Why don't you just, you know, save. Or are you being kicked out? In which case the answer is that you should've save earlier.
>mfw niggers don't know how to save
Well I don't mean SAL Parcel. If it's too large for Small Packet SAL then it's really not worth it in that case might as well go with EMS.
Except I clearly said I used SAL this time. If I had used EMS I would have gotten the package days ago.
Why not use manda?
Anything extra worth watching to make up for the horrible quality?
I know, I meant everyone else who ever whines in this thread about EMS.
Oh. Guess I need to work on my reading comprehension.
What's the customs situation with EMS vs SAL Parcel? If it means not being raped I'd still stick with SAL.
Yeah, i'm just figuring this out, i've always sent larger orders ems, and single figs with sal. Didn't think this time and combined a sal order and didn't get back to them in time to change it. Oh well, 10 bucks is still savings, but having it sooner would have been worth it.
It's the remastered version btw. And glorious SD for an SD anime.
I was living comfortably until my friend got kicked out of his parents house and is now couch surfing. He's a good guy so I'm trying to do him a favor and get a place with him as a housemate as soon as possible. He has a job before you ask.
only good thing in america.
I have horrible health care, but by god i can have my chink figures at cut rate prices. (and how)
Where can I get the soundtrack CDs for Cowboy Bebop? I have digital copies but would like to own the physical ones too.
And each disc as a vynil "3D" printing (serigraphy).
Hmm, this is increasing my want.
But i still can't watch dvd's on my 1440p monitor, they just look awful.
Pretentious as fuck.
do you do lewd things to your lewd figures?
I want a localized vers. of this more than anything now.
I don't know /a/non. I've looked up a bit here and there but each time the price seemed... too much for my pocket and interest.
I have both a CRT and flat screen so I'm fine with either SD and HD content
But this collector boxset was too nice to avoid. The drawing you see on the very right >>101152561 , it was done by Kawamoto just for this release.
The 4 books each have around 30 pages of sketches.
I glance at them, but I will never soil them with my seed, the clean up would frighten me.
All i have is sonico 1/5, and honey blonde 1/7 figs, so just topless, nbd.
Will AmiAmi ban me for cancelling a pre-order that's months away and hasn't been paid for?
So whats the problem with pre-ordering from HLJ? you place the order, you pay when it comes out, also cheap shipping. why does /a/ hate its system? can't they manage their money?
>inb4 buyfag because cant handle money
Depends on how much business you do, and how courteous you are.
Or just ignore deadline and play dumb like most do, and they get away with it (a few times).
Do I have to contact them? The only reason I want to cancel the order is because a very similar figure is coming out sooner and I can't be bothered to wait.
I personally like HLJ but they're slow as hell and the lack of discount evens out the cheaper shipping. Although Amiami's discounts haven't been as good lately.
Every time i go to the site it really has nothing extra to offer, and the prices aren't good. And anything older is marked up 20-50%, better off with mandarake/yahoo every time.
All preorders are better with amiami, in my experience, and they just provide better service.
What should I do? I haven't received one attempt of contact on their side, no slip, no phone call, nothing. I have no idea where to even pick it up from. Its been in "retention" for longer than its taken for it to fucking arrive in the UK.
Anyone know if this site ships internationally? www.shogakukan.co.jp/
Contact the post office before it's returned to sender.
Call and find out where it is.
Do it as soon as possible you don't want to risk it being sent back.
You have 14 days from the start of retention to collect before they destroy or send it back.
Never hurts to try.
Unless they ban you. Dohoho
They don't have a single number. Should I ring up my 'local' parcelforce depot? its in fucking medway and I live in wincheap.
Its with parcelforce, not royal mail. Theres no way for me to get down to their physical depot.
Yeah, start local, hopefully they will have answers on your area/how things work.
use the parcelforce website:
track trace -> get depot location -> use site to find depot phone number -> call them
I've done it before
Cheers, had no idea I could track the parcel on their site. Came up with this. Advised my ass, you never sent anything you fuckers. I'll call them tomorrow as the line is only open till 7 and its just done that.
If everything goes to plan I'm safe from it being returned to sender, as of tomorrow it'll have been held for 7 days.
God fucking damn, it is a bit pricey, but I might end up getting it.
They don't contact you, it's pretty much your responsibility to know whats up.
They couldn't give less of a fuck. Would you care about the fate of one of millions of packages you see as a parcel force peon?
All that empty space
It's like they actually expect her hair to continue growing overnight.
Now I play the waiting game
I wonder if there are parcels that go so fast they appear in the previous day from when they were dispatched
>not knowing how to use the internet
found pictures of the original for them to print, retarded FUCK
would send pictures but I'm at work right now
Her feet are ugly.
Hm, I never thought of that.
I want her, but I know so little of the company and will wait for her to come out before I spend that kind of money
Now that I look at it closely, the bingo sheets look gay as fuck. I will edit bingo sheets A-E.
Anyone got any character/series they want in it?
Oh god make this happen.
Cowboy Bebop isn't actually SD at all outside of the CG shit. Sunrise was dragged kicking and screaming into the digital age. HD was already a thing by the time they completely abandoned cel animation.
My mom just referred to my figures as my "ladies".
Mine refers to them as "dolls" (even the scales). It rustles my jimmies a bit, but I contain my OCD.
It rustles my jimmies that you call them scales, but I contain my OCD.
I wonder when my mom would name my figures when they come in.
What happens if you happen to get a male fig?
That's a good question. I guess we'll see when that time comes but there's not any male figures I'm that interested in getting right now.
Thankfully mine calls them just figures. On the other hand she has the habit to jokingly question my faithfulness to my waifu if I get a figure that isn't her.
Best kind of mom.
Who's doing their bit to save manga?
Wow that is hilarious
I'll buy it
My mother refers to all my figures by name if she can remember their names.
>You like this Saber character, don't you Anon?
Dad just refers to them with silly names on purpose but not in a mean-spirited kind of way.
>You like this Saber character, don't you Anon?
That's pretty cute
Mine calls them kittens.
Mostly because I get Kuroneko figs.
I gave her the ok when she saw Black Hanekawa fig but for some reason she keeps calling my Koto Horo a cat too.
I'm trying my best not to buy, actually. As much as I want to promote the purest form of love, I'm afraid I'll start buying more untranslated manga and anime. I've only got a few more months of school and want to finish before I start trying to learn.
In before she buys you Sader for your next birthday
You should tell her that her name is Arturia and tell her she's the King of England just to see how she reacts.
>Dad just refers to them with silly names on purpose but not in a mean-spirited kind of way.
All the computers in the network (and we have a bunch of computers) have Nanoha-themed hostnames. It's kinda amusing to see coworkers failing to pronounce the names.
My mom is utterly confused as to why I don't have any male figs.
>Anon, what are you, gay? Why are they all girls?
Heh, who was the one that made the network?
If she did that for him she would be the best ,other for gettjng him literally a holy grail.
She seemed interested in the Fate series when I tried explaining it to her (omitting the lewd parts, of course) but couldn't get over the fact that King Arthur is a girl.
I'd love that.
The company I work for has some meeting rooms named after Miyazaki characters, I want to shake the hand of the guy that named them.
>Interest in girls = gay
I will never understand this.
Myself of course, it's one of the good perks of being the local IT lord.
I even got someone else to start buying manga. Ordering the Say I Love You for him while the rest are for me.
She's thinking from the western perspective, where boys get GI Joes and girls get Barbies. Anon's collection looks like Barbies.
If I just say GI Joe and Barbie, does that make more sense? She's just relating it to you playing with Barbies. Parent logic is so flawed.
I wish honto worked with my card again, ever since 2012 its been rejecting my card.
Maybe if she walks in on him licking his figures a la Melonpan she'll start to think differently.
Try calling your bank and asking about it.
Ordered volumes 1-4, CDs and BDs. Purest form of love is dangerous to my wallet.
I just started with photo and wanted to know what you guys think.
Heh, you should rename the computer of someone something faggy if they are assholes.
I made my house network so I fuck around with that.
She thinks that you want to be the little girl and she's right.
Lean her against something.
I want to believe that not even /a/ is so desperate and retarded as to lick figures. Hotgluing them is one thing, but peropero is...
I only have 14 vols. of manga.
Kodomo no Jikan including Houkago.
A bit oversaturated and over-contrasted. Not big enough for most desktop wallpapers.
Or are you going for a pseudo-artsy look?
Like what? I just intended this photos to be like "product photo"
Thanks, over saturation and over contrast is something I'm still fighting with since I like it. I guess I'm not neutral enough.
And the resolution. I don't like to upload big pictures if it's not requested
> wanted to know what you guys think
- You want some better lighting. Some inexpensive speedlights or lamps - you don't need to spend very much on these to get pretty good lighting.
- Lightroom might also help, though that's usually more of a subtle fix.
- A DSLR and 1-2 lenses... but unlike what I mentioned before, *that's* more serious budget.
- I'd say you picked not the most interesting angle for the photo you posted.
Far from it. A product photo tries to show all details of the figure in soft, neutral 360 degrees of lighting, not the contrasted and too-vibrant post-processing you've got there. The shadows are too harsh to start with. Change the lighting in your light box and lay off on Hue/Saturation and Brightness/Contrast tools.
My mother told me the same. I said to her that if I was going to look to figures all they why didn't they at least be female.
What are these called? I'm thinking about getting one.
The expression is called "shobon" or "shoboon" to indicate disappointment or sadness in a cute way. Search from there.
This one is much better
Thanks, it's nice to have sincere advisement since everyone I know and ask them they just tell me that it looks nice, cute or something that doesn't really helps.
how would they even dub the songs?
>singing voice changes drastically from their english speaking voice
Preorders to open Jan. 31, 12,000 yen including tax. Probably around 10,000 yen on AmiAmi.
It doesn't matter, since nobody should be listening to any dubs.
my family referred to them as dolls, but later they stopped.
They just refer to them as "anime stuff" or figures.
Well, I'm in the same spot as him. Did Container 1 in Tokyo International burn or something?
I'm Container 1 too. Just what is going on?
Strange, my parcel is also in Container 1, yet my parcel has been dispatched.
No problem. By the way, budget wise:
Pure white LED lamps will be ~$4-10 a pop, sockets ~$10-15 a piece (for the ones that mount on standard photography stands, a table lamp or something can be had even cheaper).
Or you can get a decent enough photographic led lamp or speedlight for ~$40-50, a diffusing umbrella or flash-mounted softbox (if you don't just bounce light off the room's walls or the integrated diffuser) ~$5-10.
You'll want two diffuse lights besides the main light.
The actual stands for flashes are ~$5 for small portable ones where you can't adjust the height, or ~$15-20 for inexpensive height adjustable big stands.
And then you could add a lightbox for convenience of getting the light right easier and having an easy background (another $20 or so), but you can do without it, too.
Basically, a very decent amateur setup for lights and interesting accessories for small item "product" photography runs $80-200, which is surprisingly inexpensive.
