Enhe Ijla exihion.
Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
how can anyone resist this? is it even possible to NOT want this?
I don't see anything wrong.
As long as we get that little cup as well, would love to display both
Requesting Shimakaze pre-order x Ben-To.
where are the ass shots?
DHL is amazing for US. I wish more places offered it, especially for doujinshi since using DHL for them is always cheaper than EMS and sometimes SAL when I order off Mandarake.
This arrived in two days and only for 400 yen shipping, since I had to order stuff off Amazon.JP anyways.
I think she comes with the cup... 95% sure
>package for 4 days in customs now
>one of them is shota
I'm fucked, aren't I.
I loathe DHL. The fuckers never leave a package even if you tell them to. I've almost had many a package returned because of those fuckers.
You will be, quite literally, once you're in jail.
take another look at those legs
My experience with them is that a signed post-it note on the front door is enough for their proof of delivery.
Maybe you live in a theft land so they are being considerate enough to safeguard your precious plastic.
Where do you live? One time, I was gone when they tried to deliver. An hour after I came home, they called me and asked if anyone was there now so they can drop it off. I was, so they came by in 5 minutes and dropped my package off. Other times, they left it in front of my house after I tell them to on the slips.
I live in the White motherland of my State. When people moved her it was called the White Flight.
You are the reason Griffon is still NTRing pure maidens.
Are you implying that only racial minorities steal?
First figure purchase ever, here. Just got a bonus at work, so I went full retard. So this is my life now, /a/?
yes and white trash. I don't live near any ghettos or trailer parks. We have no theft in my area, go down by the river and well there's your problem.
Are they bundled together or sold separately? They are going up tonight, right?
1st one: not bad, 2nd :why 3rd: why?!
Because I enjoyed those shows / games? But really, they were all on sale; around $400 for everything.
Best girl and best girl and... well two out of three isn't bad.
On sale and you got them for 400?! Ha that's stupid
Not that anon, but Canadafag.Thinking of ordering this
how fucked am i?
>$400 for everything
Say goodbye to your anal virginity
Play it safe and don't order it.
Next time you decide to just waste your money on a "sale" give it to me instead.
Should have got Alter Panty.
>is it even possible to NOT want this?
I don't want it. I also hope you don't regret your purchase and are happy with it.
He'll regret it in 11 days.
Considering they are each between ¥8000 and ¥10000, is $390 shipped to Canada (including tax)>>101166648
really that bad?
Customs never opened my order
but i guess all it takes is bad luck
If I get updates from my country's tracking service, does that mean it's already left Japan?
Yes, wait till you see them in person. Also first purchase should be reserved for your waifu, always give her your firsts.
Thought about it, but it was a lot more expensive. And the photo I posted before doesn't really do the figure justice. The face looks better than that.
Maxwell & Panty go for 6000.Senjougahara is the more expensive one, but surely not enough to justify the difference from $120 for two to $400 for three.
Depending on their condition and the shipping method you chose it's not too bad. But it's far from sale prices.
That's retarded. What if your waifu doesn't have any merch?
I wonder when the second batch of pre-orders will be released, considering shes out now.
You build it, don't be a dipshit.
Tonight, I think.
I wish FREEing (or someone better) would do Ruka and Meiko too. Even Taito's prizes and plushes didn't include Ruka. ;_;
What do you mean condition? They're brand new. And that's with shipping, tracking, and insurance. Its my understanding that anything below MSRP is a sale, when a figure is not preorder and is sold out, no?
Same. I don't give a shit about Len, and Rin's outfit there is shit. Bring on Luka and Meiko.
And most likely sell out within 30 minutes
But why isn't the white haired one out for sale yet
every day until she arrives
What the fudge are chara pos?
Figures of those four when?
A small discount hardly constitutes a sale, especially on products that are sitting because nobody is buying them. And as >>101167203 pointed out the prices for Milla and Panty are actually lower than I thought. Senjougahara goes for around 16k, so all three together should be about 28k.
I'll at least try to go for it.
Small stick posters featuring Chinese cartoon characters.
Where can you find either of those for 6k in stock? Because MSRPs are 8500 and 7900.
Well that thing is fucking adorable. I wants it.
Daily reminder that there will never be a figure of your waifu.
Use figinstock, problem solved.
Please find it in your heart to forgive me, anon.
What exactly is a >3D Cushion?
I take it the tits poke out or something?
And they are all shit.
You know what's worse than not having merch of your waifu/husbando? Having it, and then ruining it by being a dumbass.
My fucking keychain got stuck in the door not even two days after I advocated on here that it was okay to use your keychain without worry of them being ruined and I can't find it in stock anywhere to buy a replacement.
I think so?
>keychain got stuck in the door
How does thateven happen?
Please just look up other Chara Pos sets already available from AmiAmi and MFC user photos/reviews.
Can snag on knob/hinge parts or get caught just as the door closes.
fuck everyone else, Sentinel Panty looks way nicer than Alter's.
>Figure released 25th
>Arrives at posting/collection
>Hasnt done anything else in 5 days
Wow I sure love SAL
>take key out of pocket
>put in hole
>take key out
>put in pocket
During what part of that could it get snagged unless you are swinging it around like a retard?
>shipped Jan. 9
>still not here yet
I've had packages take 4-6 weeks before in the past, but they're the exceptions.
The worst part is knowing people already got the figure and then proceed to upload pictures, only to make waiting even more unbearable.
We are entering the Final Countdown.
10 days until Wonfes.
Dreams will be Met, Hopes will be Crushed, and the Trike will be Painted.
I had my keys in the door before I shut it (since it's hard to do after I put my gloves on), then when I shut it, my lanyard thing and all my keychains swung around and got stuck, leading to my husbando's keychain becoming wedged inbetween the handle and the door itself somehow. It also snapped off the ring. It got all bent, but I'm still going to use it. I'm kind of pissed, even though I know it was my own damn fault. At least it was just this one though. I don't use my other ones that I have of him, and I already have this design on a blanket/lap thing, so there's that, I guess.
When you put a key back into a pocket, the keychain part doesn't go in every single time. A lot of people enjoy letting it hang outside to show off. Also women's pockets are tiny, they can't take more the a key or two.
Who said he put it into a pants or breast pocket? He could've put the keychain on a belt, cellphone, or backpack strap, for example. Far more vulnerable. I've had rings snag on doorways and crushed while I was wearing them.
anybody have recommendations for cool keychains? my keys are thoroughly chainless at the moment.
Buy one of you're waifu or series you enjoyed in the past year.
Good thing you dick is small, else you will have caught in the door long ago.
I really can't think of any excuse for having trouble opening a door other than being mentally retarded.
Not my waifu, but any chance of Kongo getting a figure?
A man can dream. Curse the anon who showed me these.
>Also women's pockets are tiny
Thats the root of the problem right there,
also Get The Fuck Out.
Any scales/figmas with dual swords that aren't SAO or SnK?
She's already getting 2, get with the times grandpa.
I hope she doesnt get delayed again
there's a nendo
It's when automated or spring-loaded doors close faster than expected that these troubles arise. Also the problem of moving faster than you can think, like slamming a door without realizing that you can't pull things away fast enough to avoid it.
I hope she does so I can afford her.
Is there any way to fix marks on shiny plastic bases? I have a black one and just noticed a shallow scratch
I'm just going to hide your posts now.
I knew it was you.

Still waiting on Alter Ayano, bonus points for a Kyouko fig to go with her.

Nah, at least 30

Do you want a poseable figma or a statue you can only cum on?

So close I can taste her puppy paws now.
Do you hate fun?
I'm about to buy some manga from overseas and the suggestion is to use Amazon. A few questions.
>Does Amazon Prime from the US work on it?
>How does their pricing for international shipping work? (Says DHL, but I don't know how DHL scales their prices, see the last question)
>Is there a weight/size limit before they break up the order into pieces?
>How long is DHL deliveries and how much is it in comparison to EMS?
You buy both, anon, there's no real difference between them.
Read their faq?
Try ordering something and maybe see if it lets you put a foreign address?
Get a proxy?
Use a forwarding service?
Read the Guide and use your brain?
Stop being a faggot?
Actually, just stop being a faggot.
>no difference between an articulated figure and a status
I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, I'm going to believe you made a mistake and not point out the probable fact that you are mentally retarded.
Aren't native box really subtle? Even if they open the package, I doubt they'd open the box. It's not like it's pornographic either.
I have like forty.
Native boxes are always covered and have unique designs to the characters, yes. If they break open that box, they would be in deep shit.
Who the fuck is your waifu to have that many. Miku or Saber?
Not him, but yes Native box's are very discreet, yet I do know custom can open the figure box to see whats inside.
It's Zaku II
Any chances they go that far to know the content?
I always like the Dom Squad.
If Alter makes one, will Ayanofag stay alive?
Well I fap to all kinds of sick shit, I have no right to judge a man.l
Nah, I counted duplicates.
I only have two of them, sadly.
1st and 2nd are good. Should've gone with Alter's Panty instead of the third one though, imo.
You're waifu a shit.
No. Amazon JP and Amazon are completely different. You have to register for a new account.
Look up their FAQ for shipping rate and chart as well as size limits.
DHL is a bit faster than EMS.
Worst girl, Guntank-chan 4lyfe.
Insert key, unlock door while opening with the last turn and pushing forward, swing around door, insert key on the other side, push it closed and lock it again.
The keychain can (rarely) swing to the outside when that happens and get crushed. I know several people who've broken keychains doing that by accident. After doing it so many times every day you don't really think much about your door lock/unlocking routine.
>"Origin Post is Preparing Shipment" finally updates to "Processed Through Sort Facility"
Prices are around the same or is DHL a bit more?
I know some canadianfag posted a figma which had been open by customs, also another had his book open and apparently they went through the book's content. So if they think or feel like opening the box content to check it, they will.
He is long gone by now, unless he pussed out.
Just do it, faggot. The most I've had done to me was remove the bubblewrap around my Yuyushiki BD.
Is it possible for something that's supposed to only be for Japan to ever leave? I want a certain wall scroll but I don't live in Nipland
Go read their FAQs. They even have an English version on the Japanese site for you faggots.
You have excellent taste.
Use a proxy service, you'll be able to get it that way (assuming that whatever you're buying is legal).
Please read the guide next time.
Not in Burgerstan.
I fucking love the smell of fresh PVC when you first open it.
I just sit there for an hour sniffing it constantly.
Gets me hard.
Careful, you might get PVC high and poisoning
I actually had to google that, yet it kept insisting I was looking for "burgen stands", oh google.
atago figure when?
on ami ami i assume?
ill die a happy man
>atago figure when?
I swear to christ if the one girl I want doesn't get anything while Shimakaze gets made by every company under the sun I am going to be mad as hell.
What if his fingers are too big to pose articulated figures? He'll have to look at them every day and weep about not being able to pose them for lewd photos to get cheap laughs on /a/
I want this figure to hotglue once, but not enough to keep it.
i know you pain anon
I might take the plunge and find out if anyone is interested?

>Wing's 1/7 Purple Heart going up soon.

>Retail for 17,800yen
Nepunepu fan suffering.
With Amazon Japan's new shipping rates DHL is now cheaper than SAL for heavy stuff like artbooks. And they collect the sales tax and duty on their end now so I don't need to pay any of DHL's collection fees.
when does wonfes actually start?
Check their website, idiot.
These make me realize how many things I want but won't get made. Time to learn how to paint GKs.
It starts on read the guide
>all the squares i want will never be filled some wont even get GK's
I'm going to instant win this time for sure.
They do? I might consider buying from them again then. Last time I bought a heavy artbook shipping was fuck expensive by DHL, it arrived damaged due to shit packaging and I got a hefty brokerage fee on top of it all.
Removed Koto from instant winner.
FUCK! I'm out.jpg
Ah... Please tell me there is hope to get a Neptune figma or something.
Deserves them right for buying Idea Factory shit.
I want to believe.
My master plan is to hope that everyone else NOPEs out of the ridiculous price and causes it to bargain bin hard.
>wanting figures of fags who'd beat you up, cut you, and kill you
Even in the games they barely loved the protag.
I want to believe your taste isn't this shit.
That's what you think.
Its 800 yen per order and 400 yen per book flat now. Though the damage thing is still a problem, in Canada at least DHL's local operations make Canada Post look competent. I once had somebody pull up in a 20 year old corolla, drop my package on my lawn, and drive away. puts it in the box.
It's okay. They only need to make best boy anyways, there's no need to make the rest of the cast.
does shimacup go up tonight or tomorrow?
>in Canada at least DHL's local operations make Canada Post look competent.
DAMN that's harsh
>not having lost faith in Yellow's taste long ago
You are truly a kind-hearted person, anon.
>Canada at least DHL's local operations make Canada Post look competent.
Fucking barely. I've used DHL once in my life, and will never use them again, after waiting 3 months for a phone case that had arrived in the province within 3 days of buying it.
>yellows taste not 100% shit
anon pls just look at his husbando choices
But he's the type that'd burn you, put your ashes into a doll, and hotglue it along with Teddy rather than just fucking you. And he still manages not to be the worst.
Yanderes are one of the best deres though. How could you resist?
Resisting his plush when it comes out is going to be hard.
I normally just scroll past Yellow's posts.
>implying it's a guy
But seriously liking Diabolik Lovers is a whole other story. Unacceptable.
i wasn't i was reinforcing my point of yellows shit taste with two examples
I'm not saying it's good (and the anime itself was just awful). It's more of a guilty pleasure if anything. I don't really care if you don't like it or not, but I'd like to make that clear, at least.
If Laura isn't prototyped this Wonfes I will hotglue a figure I don't really like.
Small preorder for Megahouse this month.
Variable Action Red 5
Sakata Gintoki Benizakura ver.
>punishing an innocent figure
I buy bootlegs for the sole purpose of hotgluing.
In my mind it's like that jessie copypasta except instead of jessie it's a deformed mimic.
Someone has to face my wrath. Unfortunately for Azucat, it happens to be this figure >>101171349
>buying a azusa figure
I was waiting for this day. I'm happy that Red 5 is getting a Variable Action over a Revoltech. Super Robot Chogokin would have been fine too though.
>Sakata Gintoki Benizakura ver.
Are they ever going to stop milking Gintoki and make some of the other side characters? I'm happy about Tsukuyo and Shinpachi, but still.
Every time I see this thumbnail I think it's a Chris scale and get excited only to be let down.
ami ami updates at 10pm est right?
Hopefully soon. I want a Tama, Otae, and Kondo figure.
They might certainly make more prize figures...
How fast to sell out tonight?
Expecting it to disappear as I have ignored most of Kancolle and I am getting her.
that depends is it going up on gsc's site or ami ami
>implying Laura will be released
I rather rub my dick all over Cecillia.
>the vendor was unable to supply the full number of figures promised us.
Welp, so much for that then. It's Crunchyroll so I can't say I'm very surprised.
Now I'm worried about my Shinobu pre-order.
I sure hope it doesn't sell out quickly, I want that adorable piece of ABS for muh whirlpool use.
>get tired of buyfagging
>decide to come back to it after several months
All these things I want that were released in January. I want them. I want them all. But I don't have money to buy 7+ things at once.
This is the pits.
Wait. are they talking about GSC or some random vendor they buy inexpensive extras from?
How long until we see Shimakaze literally swimming in semen?
Which ones do you want? Also, aren't you buying pre-orders?
What about preserving your wallet for WonFes?
Considering the price CR was selling her for, it must be GSC.
The night I get her.
>You have to register for a new account.
Have you been collecting your semen on bottle(s)?
It's a cute but unsexy piece of ABS.
Even so, I guess somebody will rapidly do simulation semen... just because it seems to piss some people off.
Are there any really good Yotsuba or Fuuka figures out?
I've been eyeing this one recently.
Milk jugs actually, experiment to see how long it lasts
If someone could actually make her swim in cum I would be so pleased
Only 200 copies of these frames are being made and you have to enter the lottery drawing to get one.
Now I have to pray it will pop up on YAJ and not be a insane price, which it will.
>supporting a franchise whose creators are literally begging foreigners to ignore it and make fun of baka gaijin on twitter who are still trying to play the game
Did CR accept arbitrary numbers of orders after the pre-order period or something like that...?
'cause I can't recall GSC not delivering on pre-orders.
Such is the non-Japanese life, anon.
Well I'll start saving up my deposits.
Still better than a another franchise that is "NO GAIJINS ALLOWED"
What's so hard to understand? Amazon.com and Amazon.co.jp are run by the same company, but for some reason, the Japanese site has its own database and you must register a new account there.
I don't care about the franchise. I'm just ordering a figure from GSC, who have been polite and helpful to me in the past, and seem generally more friendly to Gaijin than most companies.
When did this happen?
Was very hesitent at first about commissioning original artwrok and having a custom daki made, but was 100% worth.
so all jappanese products? 2hu shitposter?
I actually think the database is still somehow shared, given how changing the password on .com messed up the .jp one and vice versa.
Amazon is friggin' weird like that in Japan.
Not familiar with the character, but it looks pretty good. Is the other side lewd?
Who did you pay to do the artwork?
her hips/ass look weird as hell.
Second this, it looks pretty good. How much did it cost you?
> commissioning original artwrok and having a custom daki made
That's quite impressive.
Who was the artist you commissioned?
I kinda want this one, but it is a bit expensive for its size.
Well the gaijin hating is obviously nothing new, but today's update made the game basically unplayable for anyone without a tunneling service / secure VPN (of course they can still ban you for that too if they feel like). And their official twitter basically says "if you're having problems, good, that was our intention"
Not many of the upcoming things up for pre-order interest me. It's mostly a bunch of things I want got released or got a reissue earlier this month and I missed out. I already have 5 orders in-flight.
Is this going up on AmiAmi or just the Good Smile shop?
Well, back to home just to find an attempted delivery,
Momo tomorrow I guess.
It's the only Yotsuba scale so you're going to have to deal with it.
It's probably going up in multiple stores once it's going up...
Shiro from deadman wonderland. Pic is the other side, didnt really want my first one lewd so she is fully clothed in her bodysuit.
Paid $150 for the artwork, the artist I commisioned's name was Kurama-chan who I found on Dev Art which was why I was hesitent. She had really good previous daki drawings though and no wait time so I thought I'd give her a shot, which turned out well.
Sorry but what is the exact date Tharja is coming out? Google won't help
Gotta manage my finances
Oh god I can't wait.
Rate my shit taste.
Would take a better photo but not in vicinity right now .
I can't even read the spines, retard.
Why hello fireballlll0
They look so sad by themselves. You must buy more.
> Paid $150 for the artwork
That's quite nice - two such images are a lot of work.
0/10 because you expect anyone to be able to read that
That's the plan. Hence the empty space.
Looks nice, but I can't read the titles, so I can't really rate anything.
Yea, it's a very nice detail. I'm also looking forward to getting her...
Did they do this because their servers can't handle all these gaijin?
The only thing I can actually make out is the Bake animation notes set. 10/10
The price is making think about it.
There's something odd with her mouth. I like what they did with the crotch hold, though looks uncomfortable.
The Japanese are really weird, aren't they?
Quite likely, but not certain yet.
She's came out better than expected, but not 18k good.
More likely than the Iris Heart from a few threads ago.
what the fuck is with the mouth? a chinese kid with a sharpie could do better than that.
Nepu nepu? More like Nope nope.
>but not 18k good
8k is the new 6k
18k is the new 13k
25k is the new 18k
Or something like that.
Griffon is the new Alter
Also, there is no link to the GSC store on the Shimakaze page, so I assume they'll be standard releases.
Anyone order from Taobao before? Do Chinese customs care about or confiscate character goods and fanart books?
I wouldn't advise you to believe that.
First purchase how did my penis do?
would take a picture if I had a camera that wasn't complete shit.
You could have done a lot worse.
I don't know about what they do on import.
But I don't think they care about *anything* related to this thread on export.
>First purchase how do?
If you have to ask, then you did not do well.
Have already noticed they missed some metalic paint on the tip of her right heel, do they hand paint scales or machine paint? new to the hobby
Be sure to post pictures.
I live just south of BC and would be willing to do a shipping thing that you then come and pick up in person. Would you use that service? What would be a decent rate to charge?
Read the guide
I have no idea what they're doing. He's undoubtedly gorgeous, but I can't see what makes his ass 5k more valuable than Sheryl's.
My friend gave my this figure to hold onto for an extended period of time/keep. Picture taken on phone.
I really like it, it's going to be hard to save my little amount of money when there is so many other figures I want.
I like that one.
Might even pick her up as an impulse buy at some point.
Hoping to see more of you here, anon.
That's a cheap prize figure
God dammit it was rotated in my picture viewer.
I was under the impression that it's mostly the year that happened in between.
Maybe some parts he has are more complicated to make, too, but I wouldn't know that...
My sis got me the same figure, you not have a fan for her?
She looks pretty good in person, was nervous I'd regret it but she came in and actually sold me on getting more.
No, he said he couldn't find the fan.
Hotglue the shit outta that while he's gone
Looks okay, but I'm not sure what would make her special...
Maybe if it was one of my first figures... but now, I probably wouldn't buy her.
thanks anon, but i live in Québec. It might be a bit too far to pick it up in person.
>no figures of her
>mango sold out/no reprint
>not even some posters
I bought the BDs, that's all I could do.
> but she came in and actually sold me on getting more.
Yea, the Japanese sure give us good reason to decorate rooms with their bishoujo figures.
And when you're new, there are many bargain bins to pick from (apart from upcoming masterpieces), so that's nice, too.
Where is the thing in her hand?
is it a gsc exclusive?
Mfc says standard release.
>Do not put into water hotter than 40C
Don't tempt me
I get your point, but this was like a random gift out the blue so I'm pretty happy with it.
but what about semen?
Fucking lukewarm GSC.
Go home HS, you're drunk
>Do not leave ship daughteru toy for long periods of time in water or its functionality will deteriorate
This kind of defeats the whole point...
Well, here it is.
>"Facing FuRyu Danger"
A huge gaping vagina of the size of a hallway
>looks like she is falling
>my Heather finally arrived
Holy shit, I saw her and almost went into tears she's so beautiful
Doesn't sound like a problem to me.
36.5-37 degrees celsius is hot tub style.
Warmer isn't really possible for longer bathing, *you* will overheat.
>friend said the price is impossible when I told him
Some people just don't want to believe.
>first purchase should be reserved for your waifu
fuck you for bringing that painful reminder upon me
Look at you and your great taste.
Well she just put my June order to 700 bucks without shipping
>more expensive than ami ami's constantly delayed houki
I think with "long time" they mean permanently, not when you bathe...?
The basic bath starts out hot (around 45C) and ends tepid (below 30C). I don't know if most people have auto-heated bathtubs or hot tubs in their homes. I personally like my baths hot, so the temperature limitation is going to be a negative aspect of the toy for me.
>wonfes coming up in 10ish days
>moving out of my apartment around that time
Someone kill me now
it will 720 with shimacup
Olympics is then, you can watch that instead
>actually bathing with it
just give me an address i'll give your figs a nice home
>sitting in a pool of your own filth
Take showers fool.
> I don't know if most people have auto-heated bathtubs or hot tubs in their homes.
I'm pretty sure that around here, most don't... but *we* have a hot tub.
You could just start at 40, though. I'm sure there are a few degrees celsius of product tolerance, too...
Best girl is great taste, yes.
But that's not Shinobu.
Alter seems to be the cheapest and of best quality in the market right now.
And then it turns out she's designed to disintegrate at 41C.
>implying crab, snail and vampire arent best girls
Shinobu is great but she's fourth place at best.
Anything>shit taste>your taste
Is anyone else having a problem adding items from the bargain bin to your cart? They are all saying sold out for me.
yeah but dem delays man i wonder if they'll jump on the kancolle bandwagon[spoiler
I wonder if it has more to do with the possibility of plastic softening/weakening in heat and letting moisture get in and damage the circuitry/battery inside for the toy's paddling motion.
I don't think GSC does that, but I think then you'd have reason to complain.
How about this: Order two, risk one...?
I like you.
Whose bargain bin? Amiko's?
Maybe they're already sold out.
implying i'll ever actually risk putting it in water
Yeah, and I actually just got a busy server message from them, so I found my explanation.
Well, if you don't, there's no problem either way.
Myself, I will use it as it was designed to be used. Shouldn't be a big deal...
>not putting them in water to recreate battles
>Loser is put in toilet and flushed to watery grave
Please anything but that
Doesn't just about everyone get flushed, then?

Maybe that's GSC's strategy, that they're hoping you'll wreck and sink them and be forced to buy more $20 bath toys.
I see everyone is busy refreshing amiami. fags
40C is 104F, which is the max temperature a hot tub can be legally in the US. Your body temperature will overheat after 30 minutes at higher. Baths and showers, however, can be much hotter, because the water mixes with air more and the temperature is set to be maintained at an exact temperature like 40/104. Honestly I wouldn't bring something like that in a hot tub or bath tub, more because of bacteria that exists there.
Silly Noodles, destroyers don't turn into Wo-class.
THAT BECAUSE IT DRAWN BY FILTH KOREAN DOG
For the bath toys, right? What do you think are the chances of those selling out within 5 minutes?
Why the fuck do I bother looking in Amiami's preowned section? Almost made it though the month with only a 6k order and then a few days in a row where stuff I've been meaning to get starts popping up.
what else do you expect for shimaslut?
Hot tub sure, but clean your bath tub every once in a while man.
Open up your shower head.
Tell me how clean it is.
I want sailor suit Amico-chan.
Didn't know amiami sold shitty cheap headphones with nothing but a logo on them.
Thought you were better than that ami.
Pretty damn clean. I do clean those. The actual pipes are probably horrific though.
Sold out on AmiAmi
>already sold out
Ah, they added the page THEN the stock?
>because the water mixes with air more
Than when you have the typical jet nozzles pushing air into a hot tub?
Also, I don't think it would change how heat transfers very much anyways. Maybe it's simply that you're less submerged?
> Honestly I wouldn't bring something like that in a hot tub or bath tub, more because of bacteria that exists there.
The bacteria probably aren't going to attack ABS or anything.
Also, your local water supplier and hot tubs alike use chemicals in small quantities to regulate bacteria.
Either way, I don't think it's too risky...?
Not sold out, I can still add to cart.
Just like they always do?
Fuck, I was worried for a second.
Hasn't hit the front page and they haven't posted on twitter yet.
When they do then there will be a shitstorm.
Oh well, got my order
>don't even like figma
>going to buy it anyway just because it's CG
>don't even like CG, but buy merch just because it's related to im@s
Someday I should pause and wonder what I'm doing with my life.
Got mine no problems.
I have no idea who she is but I loved the original Idolm@ster and love twindrills. Ordered her and baby shimacup
>Pay for order using paypal
>Told 1 JPY is worth 0.88 CAD by jewpal
>Check google, the actually exchange is 1 for 1
>12% increase on price
Fuck, never use jewpal, use your credit card directly. Changing your payment method takes a day, and the payment is due today so I had to.
Bought two of each.
NO BRAKES ON THE BANDWAGON.
Ordered 3. Wish I can order more.
>them girls eating your wallet dry.
>using paypal conversion
Not every payment method has the same fees, not every currency has the same fees, and most of all, the exchange is not 1:1 or you'd be bitching to hell and back.
>>Check google, the actually exchange is 1 for 1
It's 91:1, retard
3 shimakaze and 2 Akagi ordered.
>Thank you for shopping at AmiAmi.
This notice is being sent to all customers who have paid for an order that includes the item Strike Witches - Mio Sakamoto 1/8 Complete Figure (FIG-MOE-3858-S001).
The item was invoiced yesterday because we were expecting to receive the item today (January 30). Unfortunately we have just been notified by the manufacturer that the item has been delayed however and a new release date has not yet been determined.
God damnit Alter, really?
that would work even better as a doll
Up on HS also
Welp, on the frontpage, rss feed is now up to date.
Blowout now stalker.
Is it really worth buying more than one?
>Is it really worth buying more than one?
You understand nothing.
1 zekamashi for me.
I don't think the akagi is particularily cute or anything.
If you want to sell them to other people for outrageous prices, yes.
So, who's the manufacturer?
How outrageous are we talking?
My imouto probably wants one, but even if not, I'll be happy to have multiple for keeping or sale.
One to put into bathwater, one to store or display normally.
Well it's Shimakaze so it could go for pretty high, even if it's just a bath toy.
>Buying $25 Mac Donald's happy meal toys
Can't be helped.
Like buying a happy meal without the trash
Whydoes she look bad? The Murasame they are doing looks nice.
I'm going to wait for the price drop post-release.
To be honest i don't know if that will happen, i mean, it's already taken a fair amount of sales and isn't sold out yet on amiami. Amiami being one store, could just turn out to be another madoka where they sold so many nobody needs to buy from the scalps.
She looked nice when she was unpainted, and it's MuraMASA
Come on now.
How on earth are you surprised this late?
Same. Waffling on Akagi, but I gotta have all the Shimacups I can get.
Gifts, dude. It's kinda like the dancing fairies from Jinrui. Suitable for people who don't care about anime.
She doesn't look bad, looks way better than QuesQ's vomit if anything. She doesn't look 18kY good though.
From 2000 yen down to... what?
Probably not going to happen, man, unless you expect a rare GSC fuckup to happen.
I expect 1500 yen easily on Amazon JP and 1000 yen as the stretch goal.
>She doesn't look 18kY good though.
And she is 15.3kY on Amiko's store, so all is well.
Not worth it , even with Amiko's discount. Hell, even with BiJ's.
She's a 13kY base at most.
This looks like a cheap McDonalds toy rather than a 60$ figure. It's cute but I'm not spending that much for it.
I wasn't expecting them to delay the day of shipment, I already remitted payment even. Guess I shouldn't doubt Alter's ability to cock-block, even at last second.
Who knows... maybe.
Can you achieve the same shipping costs on Amazon JP, though?
>being poor and jelly
Amazon JP doesn't ship figures to overseas, he will end up spending at least 500 yens in forwarding so his expected discount is pointless.
You say that like they ship anything not books overseas without a forwarding/proxy.
I have a free forwarder.
They ship DVDs and some games.
>thinking of pre ordering some scales
>3 scales I really want came in
Fuck this is going to hurt.
I made a 5x5 one instead. Enjoy.
General media, but not figures or anything of the like
Since when did AmiAmi start charging different prices on the international site vs. Japanese site?
The prices have always been the same on the JP/international site until within this month. Now the international site's prices are higher.
Didn't realize I made a typo.
Why is this so gay? There were alot a canceled Protos/figures/nendo/figma.
>No Naoe nendo
How about domestic shipping? Also free?
They are the same, Remember japan is getting hit by an extra 5% of consumption tax.
Fuck I meant why did AmiAmi start, not when.
Paypal has a 2.5% conversion fee. That's similar to most credit cards IIRC.
Amazon JP itself ships for free within Japan, yes. Some third-party sellers on the site also offer free shipping or overall prices that beat Amazon JP's.
Sales tax is rising from 5% to 8% in April, how is that an extra 5%?
>Why is this so gay?
It's from a BL game, that would probably explain it.
Well, I guess she's not very competitive with other winged figures outside of the series, especially considering what's already in the bargain bin...
1500 yen with domestic shipping included?
Well, I certainly wish for you that it works out.
And from 8% to 10% next year
>The Democratic Party of Japan came to power in the August 2009 elections with a promise not to raise the consumption tax for four years. The first DPJ prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama was opposed, but Naoto Kan replaced him and called for the consumption tax to be raised. The following prime minister, Yoshihiko Noda "staked his political life" on raising the tax. Despite an internal battle that saw former DPJ leader and co-founder Ichiro Ozawa and many other DPJ diet members vote against the bill and then leave the party; on June 26, 2012, the lower house of the Japanese diet passed a bill to double the tax to 10%.
>Despite considerable opposition and an attempted no-confidence motion from minor opposition parties the bill was successfully passed through the upper house on August 10 2012, so the tax will increase to 8% by April 2014 and 10% by October 2015.
Amazon JP is known for its strangely aggressive discounts for non-moving stock at times.
The GSC Princess of the the Crystal, for example, fell to about 2500 yen, free domestic shipping, at one point. Surely a tremendous bargain for the Japanese. The box size prevented me from committing.
Is that also owed for exported goods, though?
At 10%, some export stores may bother to get a refund for their goods and forward it to customers
>Amazon JP is known for its strangely aggressive discounts for non-moving stock at times.
I know, but:
> non-moving stock
That's *not* going to be Shimakaze, unless GSC produces like 100'000 more than there were pre-orders.
Which is highly unfortunate because there's a few straps I want from them, but they aren't worth the forwarding price.
No it's not, HOWEVER, figures are never meant to leave japan, that's when the "For Sale in japan Only" Bullshit kicks in. You still pay that tax and what Amiami does is not actually raise the base price, but decrease the discount.
The price we get is exactly the same as the Japanese get, except they get a 20% discount plus 5-8% taxes, and we get a 10-12% discount.
Would you pay $300 for a life-sized floor cushion of you're waifu?
it happened to Madokami with GSC.
>Dizzy magically in stock
well this couldn't have happened at a worse time.
The better question is who wouldn't.
Amiko couldn't be bothered to refund until now and maybe they never will, but N-Y and BiJ and MBT and so on might... no?
But, you can anon. Straps are small, they would shit overseas.
I wouldn't want to step on her.
Another example would be GSC Ultimate Madoka. Demand was high as hell and supply was even greater. Result was that the figure crashed to about 4500 yen at the lowest point, even though the figure ended up being the top seller of the year for GSC. Similar can happen here, if demand is overestimated despite the incredible popularity.
What if you step on her by mistake?
What if a friend or roommate walks into your room and tramples and stands right over her face while you watch?
I don't believe you.
Given the fact you cant even use auto-correct correctly, I assume I am hopefully wrong right.
I hate when that happens.
>item supposed to release in February
>get invoice for it today
I would step on her on purpose.
No, no one will. They still have to pay those taxes since the ones setting the conditions are the manufacturers, not the stores.
Stores are treated as the final user, and they are forced to pay that tax. Anything beyond that point is considered a resale of used goods, even if it's brand new.
I think that Shimacup + pals are going to wind up being consistently produced general audience toys. GSC has to branch out of the otaku niche if they want to grow, and this is a good way for them to get their feet wet.
Ente Isle alter figs when?
I'm tempted to get like a dozen of those shimakaze bath toys and have them walking around all over the place.
If that's lifesize then that's a really tiny waifu.
That jap can't be that tall.
Finally, next month.
What if I rip his pants off and jerk him off onto her face?
That sounds kind of gay. You sure you're waifu would approve?
I'm really liking how this looks but it couldn't hurt to see how the original comes out next month before ordering.
And maybe Madoka was still profitable at half the price. Who knows.
But Madoka had probably 200 other figures out back then, Shimakaze is quite hype and has just 3.
>Stores are treated as the final user, and they are forced to pay that tax.
That is pretty silly. And no refunds on export, either?
So... perhaps some manufacturers will just sell their figures from China where they're produced?
Oh shit, my friend's waifu. He's gonna go apeshit.
I FEEL SO POWERFUL
I wouldn't bet anything on it
You shouldn't show your love for your waifu by cheating on her and becoming a faggot.
My waifu is a fucking whore.
How much is shipping for nendro petites generally?
I wanna buy a couple, but want to know how many I can combine for cheapest shipping.
with disturbingly long fingers
GSC already ships from China, and they charge the tax anyway.
Hell, they don't even add a tiny discount.
So no, we will have to pay more and that'd be it.
>And no refunds on export, either?
There are refunds on exports, except figures are not meant to be exported, since most companies have overseas branches and character copyrights belong to someone completely different in most cases.
It's the easiest way to avoid getting bitched by the government for tax evasion and by overseas license holders.
She's a faggot, too, so she'll understand.
The better to go up your asshole with my dear.
On their blog, it didn't quite sound like that. But we'll see, I guess...
That made me laugh, thanks anon.
An average Nendoroid Petite weighs about 30g. Add box, packing material, outer box to estimate weight.
I bought my first figure last week
I can't stand the wait
And now I already have like five more I want to buy, making me very anxious about my financial standing.
Yet I feel truly happy. Thank you buyfags of /a/.
Pic related, how I felt when the payment went through
What if you fuck him right there while she can do nothing but lay there motionless?
Just wait for it to arrive.
Get hype my nigga
>GSC already ships from China, and they charge the tax anyway.
I was thinking that at 3%, it's not really worth upsetting the Japan-based export stores and so on; most customers won't notice either way.
At 10%... maybe people will notice and purchase somewhere else. But maybe also not. You may very well be right, eh.
> copyrights belong to someone completely different in most cases
Most of the things I bought recently were original artwork-based, or by companies that aren't sub-licensing merchandise rights or such.
But they'll take the pretence anyways, huh.,,
what fig, you're supposed to post pics anon.
> last week
> I can't stand the wait
Get some patience now. We don't want you to commit sudoku on your first LATER pre-order.
>And now I already have like five more I want to buy, making me very anxious about my financial standing.
Buy as you can afford it. Simple.
hmm I wonder if they will do alt colors for the Dragon's Crown scales...
Would love me a brown elf.
I like you.
Thank you anon
>captcha: thrusting forcry
I've done it before, you wont get in trouble.
Is it just me, or do AmiAmi charge less for shipping than Mandarake? I just got the invoice for the Hachikuji and Mikasa Nendoroids and they want 20 bucks for EMS shipping. Mandarake wanted nearly that much for only one Nendoroid when I ordered from them a few weeks ago.
What the flying dick nipples. Is there an actual market for things at this price? That keyboard rollin' last entry.
Mandarake also has a $5 handling fee for orders that aren't that expensive so that adds in to it.
I'll buy two of the bottom option please.
they probably just entered it in yen
that's still a lot of fucking yen
actually its pretty much the same fucking thing
i have no idea what >>101185544 is smoking
Going to make my first purchase on amiami, and I was wondering about the combine order option. Does it mean they will put the products in one box, or just that they will be delivered together?
They're not going to ship out the second box for free if that's what you're asking.
Yes, both items would be put into one box if you combine order.
Just arrived today, I'm pretty happy with it. full Milky cast scales any day now right everyone? right?
all orders for the current month in one box
It's tempting, but I think I'll pass.
Fuck, I don't want it in the slightest but seeing everyone else buy two makes me want to buy three...
Do it anon, you know you want to. I made two accounts so I could buy six of each.
Why? It's not like you guys ever bathe
So what do you do if I bought three and two of the companion figure?
>buying things you don't want just because everyone else is buying it
I've got my ass nude and ready to bathe right now, anon
I might perhaps even do it before I get her.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
rope team on a slope
This would be nice
>stay in the bath till June
>Shimacup delay to Oct
>keep staying in the tub til she is release
>tell the mailman to open your package and throw it in
>not asking him to join
Is this why everyone's buying 3 of them?
I got the same message. They already sent the payment request. If I pay them anyway, will they just refund it or keep my money and send the fig when they have it anyway?
Lack of duck face is disappointing.
>Not sold out yet
Failed franchise, its over
Oh hey, BQ quality is finally back.
Does she... have the measles or something?
That is pretty terrifying.
I don't know why people expected these to sell our quickly. They're cheap-looking bath toys. They don't have near the appeal of the Nendoroids or Figmas.
And they had been doing pretty good for awhile there too.
I don't get why she's in a lifesaver, the Shimakaze was lost with all hands on deck. There were no survivors.
But she is so cute.
Fails to capture Oyari's legendary style. Which is a shame, because the white is nice.
Oh I know. I ordered both of them. But to expect them to have the appeal of the semi-lewd Nendo and figma is just silly.
I'm sure she'll sell quite a lot, but people weren't going to stay up on monday for a GSC pre-order.
GSC doesn't usually sell out quickly, either way.
How good is AmiAmi on their backorders?
Well the nendoroids sold out fast as fuck.
>watching this thread slowly drift toward 404
Gets me every time.
They didn't expect the popularity.
Doesn't happen often, and not really when GSC knows how popular something is.
They seem to have more manufacturing capability than anyone else in the business...
It's alright. Took a week to send out a backorder for me.
