Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
5 days for Wonfes
Now that Signum and Allenye are pushed into February, I'm going to have to cancel one because I won't be able to make it. I intend to buy it for real, but it's just too heavy this month with that. AmiAmi will understand, right?
The time is nearly upon us.
If something shows up later, you still have the money that was reserved before.
I see how people could get fucked by a figure getting released earlier, but a delay shouldn't mean that you have money to blow, it's just money that you will have to spend later.
>implying Signum will actually be released in February
I know that feel. I thought I was ready but now I'm praying for another delay.
The mail finally came! I finally got my first physical anything of my husbando, even if it is only a doujinshi. Today is the best!
>I see how people could get fucked by a figure getting released earlier
I haven't ever heard about anyone *requiring* payment early, though. This is just a purely hypothetical scenario, right?
I'm not sure what you're trying to say.
But BiJ requires payment upfront for some things.
It's a big mess of not working normally because of a really long current bout in jury duty and bills coming in soon that will eat up my stored fig money before I get paid for any of it.
Amiami has charged a few figures in advance, Daisy for example, as well as Alter's Mio. And a few rare scenarios of figures getting released a couple of weeks prior to the month they were originally intended. There was a case recently, I think it was a GSC figure. For me happened with GSC's Hanekawa who got released 3 weeks in advance of the original intended date.
So yes, it happens, though not frequently.
So yeah, you can't manage your money at all. When I place an order for a figure I set that money aside and forget about it, in fact, that's why I like to prepay for everything in advance, it just makes it easier.
How about you do the same and stop living without any sort of backup funds/plan?
Just got this today. Still messing around with different poses before I set her with one that I'll keep for awhile.
Only Nendo Snake from GSC tonight.
At last I sniped one of these plushes out from under Japanese otakus on Suruga-ya, after missing the last two times she restocked for 1 unit each time.
Humbly requesting the WF Bingo sheets if there have been any changes since the first draft for this round.
I did have the money set aside for this, but now I need to use it because of unexpected complications.
Nice, very jealous
How long does an ems package last in customs (L.A)?
That depends on how many packages and shipments they have / want to inspect, doesn't it...
And whether customs officers Joe and Jane are on sick leave or just quit their jobs or not.
nice wall of nendos
not sure about LA but in SF it usually takes a day
>january order comes in
>a figure that I can't display comes in a transparent display box
It's Alter and OS, they're probably gonna get delayed. A lot more in Alter's case.
I'll hold onto it for now. My situation might not be as bleak as I first thought.
God, I worried about this stupid fucking doujinshi so much while it was being shipped, I actually lost sleep over it. I don't want to risk the Australian customs RNG again.
To the Australian guy in these threads that has like 90 loli doujins, even if I think you're kinda weird, I admire your strength.
Why did you buy if you can't display?
got another one though
I just want to say that I really like your collection, especially Chie. What's your favorite
Nice collection of classy refined women, anon.
does anon want to go to prison?
Just payed for Keiji. Time to wait warmly for 3 weeks.
Chie and Reiko, I guess.
Well, maybe also Akira.
I'll post them again.
Are they really that lazy to not update the delivery status?
A man can wish. I would love a Judo scale.
Yeah right ;_;
I am using this one, bunny laura has to be announced.
Those nipples look delicious.
Which state he is living anyway?
I don't get what you're complaining about, unless you're saying your package was delivered after 7:13 pm and their tracking doesn't show that.
we can dream anon
Good Iris Heart/Puru or PH/Nepu Scale plz ;_;
Last one, an exclusive Kancolle bingo.
Can we not do this every thread? Just link to them in the archive
>GSC Kiss-shot only
This one has to win from instawin.
Or make them all a single image. Somehow.
I wish I owned this figure
Why haven't you used your figures to make a fantastic stop-motion animation that the author praises you for?
January order arrived today, also got Tohka Nendo a month late from CR.
sorry for the shitty picture don't have my camera with me right now.
You should switch to BiJ or similar that lets you pre-pay. That way you won't have to worry about putting money aside (although I would keep some savings should they require additional shipping costs). It's pretty great for budgeting.
or just put them in an imgur album
that could work, then the link could be put into the OP?
Which still doesn't make sense, because then if the fig didn't get delayed you would be fucked for real.
preordered it before I learned about amiami and these threads
Does anyone know when TBSishop charges for pre-orders?
I think their website says when the item comes into stock, can anyone confirm?
How good is Koto usually about not delaying their stuff?
You probably shouldn't be ordering from a website you can't read.
Hey guys, I'm visiting LA in a couple of days, is there any figure store in the area with decent prices?
Anime Jungle in Little Tokyo, but they are marked up prices.
If you're looking for books, LN's or manga, I hear Kinokuniya has some good stuff. Just what I've heard in another thread. Am planning to go there in a few days (hopefully).
Does Amazon.jp ever sell bootlegs?
The bingos are now in this album:
If you buy something in stock on amiami do you still have a week to pay or is it up front?
I took pictures of what's inside Kinokuniya in LA. It's a nice bookstore, but everything is pretty much marked up. It would be cheaper to order from Honto and go SAL or something. However, it's still a nice place to get something from every now and then.
Honestly, nothing. I live around the area and Little Tokyo doesn't have much. There's Kinokuniya and Anime Jungle as someone mentioned, but it's generally not worth it. Especially Anime Jungle. Not worth it at all. The selection wasn't that great at Anime Jungle either. Kinokuniya is nice if you want to pick up a manga or two, but if you plan on getting a ton, just stick to online.
I am hoping this means they gave it to the wrong carrier or something and had to transfer it but considering the tracking number doesn't even work with Canada Post's site this is the unluckiest and strangest fucking shipment if so.
Going by the archive someone had a "Redirection" recently but I don't see if it was ever mentioned what happened.
So what the fuck is this and why does it cost 17,000 yen on BiJ?
Mind posting pics on imgur or something?
Should I expect this to be sold out soon? I haven't bought figs before but I won't have cash for awhile.
Because otaku's are tards
My 1st scale, have many posable though
how bad did I do?
What you don't like japanese Bratz dolls?
Gee, if only they had a FAQ that explained how payment works.
The first few pictures are from the one in Costa Mesa, but the one in LA has them too.
I have pictures of the Costa Mesa one too, but I captioned a bit with notes you'd probably hate, as I was taking pictures there for someone else. I'll just post the LA one since it's bigger than the one in Costa Mesa.
It generally means it got sorted wrong by the machine and went into a bin for another place and they've caught the mistake.
looks good to me.
Sheets B & E seem most likely.
Welcome to BJDs, anon. That's actually very cheap for a doll.
So moe I'm gonna die
>amiko's face when I forgot to pay for femdom Senjougahara
I was expecting my account to get blown the fuck out but she gives zero fucks.
If it wasn't Griffon and you preodered I'd say you're off to a good start.
hotglue pix when
Welp, another 12 hours or so of waiting to find out I suppose.
as far as I know it isnt but I didn't preorder, just got her from manda
well I just gotta wait for our dear post service to SAL her from the other side of the world
You did excellently.
No such thing as doing good, only not doing shit.
>It's good because I like it
My order from December has yet to arrive.
Not really, her preorder's been up at AmiAmi for a while now.
>not liking what is good
I didn't say it wasn't good, just that it's not good because you like it.
Your package is traveling the world. It'll arrive at the Empire State Building after it sees the Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Gaza.
>package hit customs
Package-chan sounds moe
I know your pain anon, my last order took almost 2 months to reach my door and it didn't even get stuck in customs it was all the shitty post service from my country
Is it worth it to spam Mandy with emails or will they get back to me eventually?
B-But I'm American and thus incompetent at tracking.
It's probably faster and more effective to just travel there.
Apologies for pseudo blogshit, but have just stayed up specifically for a 3am preorder. Must have dozed off, woke up at 3:15.
What I was after has completely sold out at Amiami and Hobby Search in 15 minutes.
Doesn't seem to be listed yet on HLJ.
Does anybody know when they update their new items?
>order package from new york
>live in ontario
>month and a week and counting

Hoping Shimbutt will be painted at wonfes
Peacekeeper Daisy for 7,980 yen on Terraformer
Thanks, I'm gonna visit Little Tokyo then. I already heard of Anime Jungle, the prices in their online store are kind of high, but if they are the same in the actual store I will actually save a bit of money, taking into account taxes and shipping prices.
(I'm probably only gonna buy nendos as I don't think scale figures would fit on my luggage, their prices are not THAT marked up, so...)
As for the selection of items, even if it's not the greatest place, I will probably cream myself over it anyways since there is nothing similar to an anime store in my area, so anything is bound to impress me.
>lack of detailed hair
>but dat puffy vulva
>the hair is a bit too purple...
>but dem bewbs
>but her face is so cute
>but dat blush
All prices on the website are those of the store. Bought my kyoko there.
>that cross-eyed Index
What's a good middleman to use when I want to get a particular doujin from a particular group in a particular event? Said group doesn't put up its doujins in Toranoana or Melonbooks.
dats a p derpy lookin' Index ya got there
How long does it usually take for amiami to send an invoice on an item in-stock? it's my first time buying from them
She is great.
>dat shit taste
I'm laughing and vomiting at the same time.
I wanted biri biri, but got her instead.
24 hours tops.
Yeah I just took a giant shit, and now that my whole house smells like a giant shit shit, I don't really want that figure anymore. I want to jump out a window.
If you combined orders, they wait until everything is in stock. If not, they send it the day it's in stock. A week later they send another telling you to pay up or die.
Anyone know what time HLJ updates?
>No matter how many times I press F5, happiness isn't coming. >;_;
How good is Honto with backorders? I know it will take up to 3 weeks but I am just wondering if they will have to cancel some of my stuff.
Yes, they will only cancel those stuff if the three week period has been expired. But, it will continue shipping the orders.
I asked /v/ and /toy/ about this earlier, and was sent your way.
Is this your boards version of BST? and if so, is anyone selling Solange's figure?
No, this is not a BST thread. We sometimes give a heads up on stuff that's on sale or that we're selling elsewhere, but it's not a regular thing. Not sure if anyone is selling what you're looking for here, but you could check the guide to see if you might have better luck elsewhere.
Nice email bro.
Ah, my apologizes then. And I wanted to ask around and see if I could buy board-local before going to different sites. Thank for the info though.
It was made pre-9/11
Thanks. Hopefully they find everything. It's only been a week so I don't think I have to worry yet.
Damn, I dont know should I cancel my shinobu or not? Pretty much everything in stock except shinobu's book is backorder.
From a former WF bingo guy, Nice work on all the sheets. It'll be hell to update coming Saturday, I hope you didn't make any other plans that day.
How badly do you need the books?
meant to quote >>101490022
Be patient. The wait will just make getting all those books much more enjoyable. Plus, you'll have shinobu.
Wait the fuck are the books even about?
Shinbu is the 3rd one iirc when I went to look at them in store.
It's not necessarily that they can't find everything (that's a possibility) but if you're unlucky like me, the stock will come later than the allotted three week grace period.
But, to give you some sense of security, check the individual status of the manga/book that make up the set you're ordering.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
I want to read vofan asap but Shinobu is mai waifu, it will be worth the wait.
5 days until I commit sudoku
This would also be nice.
It will never come
You need more HOPE.
Don't let the naysayers discourage you.
No, we don't usually BST.
But you're in the right place. How about you buyfag this figure off the open market?
She'll run something between $130-150, I imagine.
The white version is much better than the black version.
I wanted to try to buy board-local first, but I will branch out. I think your right, I expect to pay around that range for her at this point.
I wonder if H.R. Giger himself gets one of these for his living room...
He would prefer biomechanical vaginas and penises made of pvc.
I thought that bamboo had hotglue in it for a sec
No, that doesn't work.
Few give up anything from their collections (unless they give up much of their entire collection for life reasons).
And even then, with so many figures out, it is likely not going to be what you want.
We're almost always buyfagging with external sellers, here.
You may be right... but I think that little statue would strike him as "funny".
I quickly checked for you, the Japanese price for her can be cheaper.
Used/opened on Amazon.JP 7500 yen. Or currently 5k yen on a 5 days left Yahoo JP auction, probably not going to top 12-13k yen (other auctions).
This is just from a glance, didn't really look as well as I would have looked for myself.
I appreciate that anon, I will look into the BiJ forwarder from the guide. That's a great price if shipping is right.
She is big enough to not fit into SAL, I think. I have her and she is quite big.
I have a $160 budget for her, so as long as she falls below that with shipping, I would be satisfied. Cheaper is always nice though.
Sure. Then here's the links:
Amazon JP listing:
Yahoo JP auction:
Don't let that stop you from looking some more yourself, though.
Does anyone know a site that sell a bunch of japanese candy?
I might hit up the auctions for awhile, some great prices with that link you found. If that doesn't pan out ill search elsewhere. I appreciate the help.
Not sure how good their selection is compared to other stores but I've ordered from them multiple times. http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/category/pocky-snacks-candy
Im lucky enough that there a big japanese pop here so we have like 3 jp markets and a few korean dog butchers shops.
I recommend these. http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/product/kasugai-litchi-candy-4-93-oz
I buy them all the time at the Mitsuwa near me and they are damn good.
No problem. Happy buyfagging.
Well, Amazon JP sells a ton of them. Just go to "sweets".
Ditto for other marketplaces.
>that link you found
>YAJ is in the guide
Read the guide.
I don't get why people waiting on preorders to open don't set a damn alarm in case shit like this happens.
Can someone put a name on the lovely kitsune on the right of OP's pic? Searching is getting me nowhere.
Thanks! Wow, I just got a reason to play my Vita again.
What a fag
>Why don't people know everything I do at all times
Jesus, the guy is grateful and polite, people like you suck.
Originally this month was supposed to be 8k. Due to delays it's now 31k. I just hope Meeku gets delayed again, since her box is going to be abysmal for sure.
I'm new to buyfagging and read the guide. I still have a question about shipping though. If you place your order can you change your shipping address before it ships or is it set in stone as soon as you put in the order? If it's set through specific distributors I think I'm going to use this one http://en.animate-onlineshop.jp/
Why is Chachamaru's figure so disappointing?
Check Animate USA's FAQs. Their shipping is more of a flat rate type of deal, so you'll be better off with big orders with them.
I will thanks. Yeah, I was thinking of starting off with 2 Nendoroids. Then moving up to the scale figurines.
Shit I don't want to like hat!miku
I didn't even vote for that one
Well, thanks to that packaging GSC's flat really doesn't sound so bad anymore for one only.
Man she's more beautiful in person
Cool bird anon.
Post animals and your favorite figs.
is that bird pettable?
If I could get the cat to sit still for one second, I'd take one.
Fucking hyper thing.
Can't get myself to open it
>24700jpy including shipping
>3740jpy customs taxes
So this is what it feels like to fill a void in your heart. So next is miku and that catgirl.
Aside from being in a shit potato picture that rabbit is cute as fuck.
It looks dangerous.
I wasn't interested before, but now I definitely am.
If you live in USA or Canada, GSC's WF exclusive webshop will be free shipping. Which means this Miku.
INB4 massive shipping fuckup as per usual.
Get a better pet
Your bird looks photoshopped in all your pictures. I don't know why.
The fuck is this bird
>If you live in USA or Canada, GSC's WF exclusive webshop will be free shipping. Which means this Miku.
Free shipping on orders over 10k.
Buy 3, scalp one, display one, hotglue one.
Why is she so expensive? Is the game popular? Was she hard to get? Does she just look good? Is it all just a bandwagon that never died?
How could anyone fap to that giraffe neck?
I refreshed one day and was able to order her. So happy.
Not him, but what the fuck?
Ok, but what part of her cheeks makes her /v/ related?
What he posted was shit-tier not worthy of our buyfag thread.
I just directed him to a more appropriate board so we can discuss good things here
I'm not following.
Not him, but it kind of looks like there's a '/v/' on them thanks to the blush.
The blushing pattern.
That is the most autistic thing.
But people post shit here all the time.
HLJ updates whenever the fuck they feel like it, between a day and three days late.
Is that real?
Did something happen to this? Like a mass cancellation of preorders?
How long does it take BiJ to forward an order?
If I have a paypal linked to a debit card, and I submit an order (for a preorder) but don't have the money in my account, will it get rejected even if the merchant never takes the order?
It's like you didn't even read the guide.
Nope, not Us or Canada and every figure more just fucks me over at customs. Getting some rid on ebay will just be a hassle and a friend who wanted her will probably balk due to the price.
Latest mandarake order isn't doing so well. Somehow the street address didn't make it onto the label. Now it's in retention.
Has anyone had any experience with packages getting returned to sender?
My order took eleven days but I've seen someone say that theirs took a month.
Destroyer never ;_;
Where is it in the guide? There's nothing about it in the payment section.
Psychic is next.
Never give up hope!
Am I the only one who is skipping Miku?
By any chance is 2190 your home postcode? An artbook/doujin order I had said "RETENTION" then when I got home, there was a delivery slip and I picked it up no problems.
I also skipped Miku, and if Psychic is next I'm gonna skip her too.
How hard will this be to put together? http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/item_s-1544655.html
I want it uncolored, but I'm not very good at models (I am dextrous/patient though), will i need to commission someone? And if so, who is there to commission out there?
Pic somewhat related, wanting whats on the left basically.
Assembly is easy, painting well is difficult. You'll want an airbrush if you're serious. Buy some cheap figs/gunpla/minis to practice painting on if you really want to get into it. You could probably get commissions but it'll be pretty expensive. If I recall, the black/white versions were exclusives? The colored versions are available for purchase though.
Never expected myself to say that but I wish male Psychic was the one who got a figure.
Yeah, I have the painted mayoi, and it sucks big time horrible paint.
I'm having a hard time figuring out if this comes painted or not though. Do GK come painted? This was really the only place I got any info after some translation fun.
A lot of company is announcing their exclusives for WF.
The one you linked >>101503956
doesn't come painted. GKs typically don't come painted.
So will it be bare ugly plastic? Or have some shading and look like the Uncolored ones I posted, which is what i want.
The release chain went original garage kit, then ques q released their version of it (one i bought), then the colored/uncolored wonfes ones were released.
Going to Wonfes for the first time - anybody have any advice? I have been to Comiket many times but I've never had the chance to attend this event.
Yeah, it should be as they pictured it on the site. I'm assuming you know how GKs typically are right? The one you linked seems to be a copy of the initial GK, that is, the unpainted one that requires both painting and assembly. I'm assuming the 'uncolored' one you're referring to is the (painted) black/white one, and while I think that was for sale at some point, that's not the one linked.
Thanks for finding that pic, and the info. Yeah, that's what I thought it was gonna be...
Guess I'm gonna have to ask for a commission on mfc or something, but people seem booked ATM. Oh well, at least I have the kit.
You're welcome, but that's actually on the page you linked. Click 'show photo no. 2'.
Good luck with that. I was really disappointed QuessQ did a horrible job on the painting and decided not to pick them up.
HA, I think i passed the retard test.
Well, thanks anon, and yeah, at least this can be painted properly, will just be a lot more in the end...
Actually kind of tempted.
As that Australian guy: Be strong anon. They never check doujin.
Mmhmm, just ordered Kongou.
Said I did good /a/, DO IT!
Way more interested in getting a 1/8 of her mental mode.
Don't like her [ship] fore. I love the fact that i have to qualify that statement.
Like >>101505389 I will wait for a MM figure instead.
Sakura Kinomoto better get a nendo this wonfes. Also want a Harime Nui nendo too.
L-Look what just arrived, pretty fucking happy now, all three nendo's collected.
Other one turned out shit. Her outfit is nice this one though...
>Still overpaying on pieces of cheap chinese plastic models of girls from cartoons made for little chinese girls
Stay dumb, guys.
Really? Never? Why not? Is it because envelopes are way more of a pain in the ass to check compared to parcels, or are they too focused on finding drugs or something?
Stay dumber, guy.
Who knows what might happen.
>Psychic sells like shit
>They stop making the rest
Damn that old hag.
Any californians in this thread now?
According to old posts like >>97952724 and a few others, california seems to get SAL stuff in a bit over a week rather than the 2 weeks like in the amiami FAQ.
Was this a temporary thing, or is it quite normal for californians to get stuff pretty fast?
>What is disposable income?
>What is a hobby?
SoCal here, still waiting for my RSal package.
I went with unregistered, so I guess I'll expect the worst and wait it out, but I'm hopeful that it'll get here faster.
Did you buy Sakimori when she was released? Hunting for her last year was hell.
Something described with
ましまっくす WF8-22-04 @mashimaximum 10分
I just ogled 2chan's Symphogeah thread.
No, not my home post code.
I'm worried because their was no delivery slip.
B-but in a thread the other day I saw a picture of an RSAL envelope with an "opened by Australian customs" thing on it...
yeah i bought sakimori as she was released, got hibiki at the same time as sakimori was released.
so a GK, nice! Thanks, wonder if it would sell under 13,000 yen
or is it a proper scale?
I see a nipple
Not before me
Pretty cool, too bad it's a fucking Miku.
Because she has the sexiest neck ever, and she's anatomically correct (you can see her labia through her pantsu).
Well where's the news and links Noodles?
For my last 2 shipments I used RSal, and it got here faster than my 2 previous EMS packages.
That's because SAL shipments land in coastal cities and switch over to ground shippingfrom there . If you live on the east/west coast, SAL can be an incredibly efficient shipping option over EMS.
Ohh, I didn't know that. Thanks for the info. I live two hours away from LA, so I guess I'll switch over to RSAL all of the time now.
Just know that it always doesn't get there quickly, still waiting on a RSal since the 19th and I live in the O.C.
>in coastal cities
No they don't. At least not where I live.
>Preparing for Shipment
All my yes.
Decide to skip Takao made by Phat. Hope this WF Alter or MF decide to make Kongo.
Just reissue/repaint of lousy lewd stuff right now. *Tamaki, some random slut etc.*
I've been living near San Francisco and near New York, switching every half year and I would say that in both areas I've gotten USAL between 1.5-2 weeks
My first order is awaiting Payment
>Shipping: 1,290 JPY
Guys how much do HG Gunpla usually weigh?
>Not learning how to program in order to make scripts who preorder for you.
That shipping is relatively good.
I usually pay 3k+ on majority of my orders
I just couldn't imagine only two of them coming to 800g.
I've held one before and it didn't feel very heavy.
W-why are the bottom of his paws yellow ?
I'm not sure why I'm even building this weird Asami Imai collection, but I like what I have so far.
At least she's getting one, I'm still waiting for some Kanae love.
Something is off about that kurisu
I've got her as well and I agree. Should've waited for Lab Coat ver.
>your RSAl is faster than my EMS and actually has tracking
Fuck you, never again.
What exactly is Wonfest?
Looking at wikipedia, it's a festival for amateur modelers to sell their detailed figures at high prices, but what does this mean to a baka gaijin living in the states? Are there going to be things for sale on places like Mandarake or something?
Companies show off announcements, new prototypes or updates on them and also there are some wonfes exclusives like that new Miku nendo.
Oh cool, looking forward to the announcements then.
Bottom is EMS.
USPS has so much detail on the tracking. You're lucky to get anything on Royal Mail tracking.
I don't know if this just occurs to me, but I get no updates until it leaves LA. I just got a bulk status update today (12:43 am). So until then, I don't if it is on the way or lost.
Who in the fuck wants that besides me, a little
Well my EMS is the same as your SAL.
I'm more talking about the detail on it. If you search the tracking number on Royal Mail it just tells you the latest on it rather than a list of stages. You can't even search for it until it's left Japan.
You share your taste with Yellow, congratulations.
Oh shit, sorry about that.
Nice, Mingosu is pure love.
Thought of buying these figures. What do you think?
freaky, I like it.
I like how they look but I've heard the paintjobs are horrible.
>Two went up tonight
>Both sold out
May-Maybe next time.
terrible paint jobs
I don't have the pictures but the paintjobs are horrendous.
Shame because they could have been cool.
Anyone has bought something from Mandarake and shipped it via IPPSAL?
Can someone share their tracking number.
>Order is for goods worth about £80
>Arrives in country last Monday
>Parcelforce sit on it for 6 days without doing anything
>Get this letter today
I paid the fee, I just want my figures.
who'd you sleep with to only get charged £8 for clearance fees?
Such is life of a europoor.
Whoever opened my parcel must have seen my Saber figure and decided to be nice to me because of mutual love for our waifu.
Still though, £8 handling for a parcel that they've just left to sit around for ages is ludicrous.
Isn't there a minimum where you don't get to pay? Where I'm everything declared under 65 is void of customs duty.
I never had to pay anything. 400k¥ was the max bought though.
>figma Futayo moved to March
There better be more Horizon stuff on WonFes.
There is a minimum but I guess tat I went over it, I'll just split my orders up in the future to reduce the chances of it happening again.
>Estelle suddendly has a release date in 4 days
fuck make that ONE
So mandarake has done nothing about the RSAL problematic regarding a few countries?
EMS or eat shit? Or rather eat shit or eat shit?
What would be the best way of going about buying multiple used cds from amazon japan? They'd all be coming from different retailers, so I guess they wouldn't come in a single package.
Well, you are probably better off getting them from a single retailer, but not necessarily.
Google a bit around. The keyword is 中古CD.
Surely THIS is the WonFes she becomes more than a dream.
considering that you would need a forwarding service anyway just have them repackage them into a single shipment
I would pay anything if Max Factory would make that image into a figure.
Another addition to the Elin pile.
people are still buying them? isn't the game half-dead?
This look very good, hopefully it won't cost an organ.
There is a painful amount of neglected potential scales.
I'm pretty sure people who buy Elins don't buy them because they're fans of the game.
I have finally beaten out the fujoshi for this strap.
Today is a good day.
With all her costumes, I hope various makers will choose more than just her school uniform and her Season 1 opening outfit to do.
Fujoshit VS Fujoshit
Winner = Fujoshit.
Good taste in character.
Bad taste in merch. What's with girls and those shitty straps?
I've never really bothered with any Mikus at all but I just can't pass up on this one. They've put so much effort into this one, it is excellent. Even dat delivery box.
Probably because they don't have any better choices for most characters. All straps and tiny trading figs and shit like that. Personally I'd rather buy no merch than buy that kind of stuff unless it was of my waifu or something, but oh well.
Fits on their purses, cheaper than a figure.
Guys do not use purses and therefore do not understand the concept of accessorizing.
I'm not sure how to explain them.
Rubber straps shot up in popularity and prevalence a few years ago (I'd say around 2010-2011 was when it started taking off) and now it seems like every series needs at least a set of them. I'm guessing that they're cheap and easy to produce, since the design is flat, rubber-cutting machines are commonplace, and companies wouldn't have to hire a sculptor to figure out a 3D model.
Before rubber straps, the popular keychain type item was tiny figure-like charms.
I hate those straps too. I see plenty of them for male-oriented series though. What gives?
>mfw that's what everyone said about Daifuku Miku
Enjoy the beginnings of your new addiction.
>those fucking Petanko straps
Maybe material costs are relatively cheaper compared to figure keychains. Easier to make since you just need a picture and vectorize it for the machine. It look flat and big and seems to justify the ~500 yen average price tag for one of them, compared to 200-300 yen for a similar but far smaller figure charm.
>actually using straps outside
Also, fuck GSC and their God damn EMS shipping. I'm going to be auto-taxed and charged out the ass with handling fees for WonFes exclusives which will take just as long if not more than Airmail to reach me.
guys just have a satchel/courier bag/backpack. and some of them have stickers/pins/patches on them. never seen one with anime-related stuff, but that's simply because my sample pool only consists what i see on the train.
The type that goes to anime conventions probably has anime straps too
>buying shitty straps
>not saving money for his scale/figma instead
I used to have a backpack full with pins fo anime stuff mostly, mostly subtle stuff
Not him, but I'm 30 and use a laptop backpack when i'm cycling to work. No anime pins though. Using any side-carried back is retarded when cycling / using a motorbike.
I work at an office that handles language courses at my college, and 50% of the people I've seen that come in to ask about Japanese courses are overweight and have shittons of pins on their straps. It's disgusting.
Makes more sense than "hurr, only girls accessorize" at least.
So only cancerous retards use straps in public?
Don't worry, I am.
If only MF or Altair will deliver.
To be fair, 50% of general population is overweight, assuming you're talking about the US, right?
They're still a market to target.
Figma prototypes might finally appear in 5 days. lAter might take their time though.
I live in Colombia.
My apologies and condolences
>Tfw not really a Miku fan but think that some of her figures are adorable
I must resist temptation.
I have a keychain and a strap of my waifu but I only carry the keychain around with me and the strap I hang over my bed.
Amiko in charge of killing trees.
Newfag here, I read the FAQ on mandarakes site, and im almost positive I can order from them and have it delivered here without a forwarding, but im comming here to make sure.
Read the fucking guide.
Asuka belongs to a friend. Takao and Iona are mine.
Based Yoshikawa, sending our beloved goods to us.
those boxes look big but aren't 1/700 pretty tiny?
Have any of you guys commissioned anyone to build you a garage kit?
Submarines and Hevay Cruisers are pretty big anon
How are Sega figures generally? I friend of mine has a FNC figure from Upotte and it was made by Sega and it looks okay to me, but I'm not an expert. Do they generally come in good quality or does the qc range a lot like Griffon?
but they'd only be around 30 cm in length.
That's still fairly small.
The feeling that the box from the later shipment arrives before the one four days earlier. SAL... you so crazy.
Yeah, this is Iona's kit.
>you still won't be able to take a look at her engine room, even though you've bought her
They are mostly prize figs, which can be decent, but are never spectacular.
I would never pay more than 30 for a sega fig, I have a misato and yoko/boota by them, paid 8 and 20 respectively.
This will be fun.
That one KS fag.
And finally Takao.
Do you know who they commissioned? Or if it looked like shit or not?
I've been browsing deviantart, as the MFC club seems dead. Leona seems to be the only one trying to make a business of it, but she is booked for 2014 it seems.
I'm torn. On the one hand she is amazingly detailed and such. On the other I have a lot of nendos as it is, with some on preorder as well as scales PLUS WonFes may reveal new goodies which I may want to save space for.
I suppose it's good that there are a few days for the preorder window before I decide.
I don't have any photos saved, but I saw two figures. One's that often-reposted plain Rin and I can't remember who the other figure was (Hanako?).
Just wait for WF to hit and your wallet to cry.
Surely GSC/MF/Alter/MegaHouse/etc. won't disappoint us.
She's probably not even going to be released until next year if you preorder her. And she's only a nendo, that's like 50 bucks, tops. Go for it anon.
Save your money for something better. She may appear shiny now but better, more worthwhile things will show up at WF.
Got my January order today. Shit potato phone pictures, so I did it all in one.
Wow, you actually combined all the pictures into one; unlike the rest of these idiots. Good job anon.
Someone posted them recently in these threads, just look in the archives for "KS fig" or something, it was like a week or 2 ago.
What's that Noragami thing?
Just a memo pad. Can't wait for the OST to come this month.
Go be fat somewhere else
Oh, I see.
Well, here's hoping for a scale. I don't think it's too unlikely.
I saw a women like this picking up her child from school. I feel sorry for her kid, I mean I wonder how they must feel. It's gotta be fucking embarrassing.
Yeah, I'd be happy with just a prize fig of Yato. I'm sure Hiyori will get one.
>use a friend of a friend to act as a proxy for amazon.co.jp
>still haven't received a tracking number
Hiyori will sure get one. I'd like a Yato too, let's at least hope he'll get a decent prize.
complain to customer service
Kill friend in consideration of friend of friend.
Your strenght as a human being is decreasing, anon.
Im looking to sell some of my collection and take a break for a while and mfc is bolloks. Shoot me an offereverything except bq kyouko is for sale. All figs were kept in a cool enviroment and out of the sun.
I want that Akari (nendo?)
You have an MFC we can contact you at?
I'll give you $60 for the SW nendosI don't like using email
Nice email faggot
Sgtpooptickler (no im not joking)
I might have some extra money by the end of the week
Any chance you can hold of Alter's Ritsu until then juts in case?
Dunno how much she goes by now though
Id do 110 plus shipping
It sure does. I just had one of said fatluses (this one with the trademark messy ponytail and neckbeard) He had a bunch of IS pins, so you just know he's the worst kind of faggot.
>missing the best keion
I don't like you.
Is that the Yukata Miku?
Is the BQ Kyouko nice? Got her on the way and wanna hear som impressions. It's one of my first figs.
How much for P&S?
55 each 100 for both
How much for Kyouko and Akari?
How much for the Mami prize figure?
I was gonna get da moogs I promise
I also have the tank for the miho nendo but I havent built it
never mind. I got to excited and forgot that you wanted to keep her.
I just bought her for 8K unopened about a month ago, if you want to do bullshit prices then go back to MFC.
It's hit or miss.
You can get lucky as SHIT like me and have only 1-2 small blemishes where you won't see unless you look hard for them
Or you can be unlucky and have some horrible blemishes everywhere.
I personally love mine to death. So worth it.
they look amazing and I want one of every character
One more strike and you're out.
Good lord Elins do some magical things to my dick
How much for nendo Mami's mammies?
I'll buy them if you can ship outside the USA
Interested in starting a small collection, but one of the figures I want is hard to come by. Is the Amazon storefont, Deputi Japan any good? Any recs for Amazon storefronts?
How much for Erica nendo?
I don't get it, am I supposed to be freaking out? I have 7 emails, that was just my spam email.
This was for>>101526629
I got her from amiami for 130 before shipping around three months ago. Sorryim not giving them away asshat and btw I was in no way firm with that price.
You mean forwarding, right? What did you get?
No clue. Try every other site on the guide before turning to Amazon.
What figure are you looking for?
I can but im not sure how much it will cost. Send me an email so I can keep track of who wants what when I get quotess this goes for everyone.
Open that figure's page on MFC, there are links to other sites that could have it in stock.
90 Richard ive had it with your shekling.
I bough some stuff from amazon in this area. I can only vouch for Robert's anime corner, anime jungle and fulfillment from amazon itself. Look at the comments. Amazon is the second to last stop on the finding train for out of stock stuff.
I didn't know worst girl's nendo was going up last night. Ah well, ordered.
We better get a fucking Shinobu though, I swear.
It's cute, but I'd rather have scales of Snake and adult Shinobu. I ended up ordering e2046's garage kit of adult Shinobu, hope I don't regret it.
Pic related arrived today. Do I sell her for a profit or keep?
It'll be an exclusive bundled with some other bullshit for 8k. Just watch.
Doesn't even look like Yaya.
>Kiss-shots prototype is finally painted this WonFes
I'd buy a figure of Medusa Nadeko though, I like her like that.
I'll be holding my breath for teenage Shinobu as well.
Probably. But if we get extra posters and pins like Gahara's, I won't be complaining.
needs a new face
I still need to get crab but poorfags gonna poorfag.
Has anyone bought this tell me how it looks?
Been thinking about buying it and just wondering if it is okay up close.
Looks good, but doesn't seem popular, think it was too plain for most.
But it will probably be the only decent chitanda.
Dear diary, the thighs were fat.
Reading my mind anon, can't fucking wait. I have the gsc of her, which is cute, but I want that full yandere, maybe a pose of her about to stab.
Where are muh Wonfes teasers?
Thanks, been wondering if there were any obvious shitty paint job or overall badly sculpted.
I kind of want to get all of these just for fapping, but don't want them otherwise
Just got the package in the mail today, I've been wanting Momohime for a long while now.
Hello buyfags. How would I go about claiming one of the "gift for the whole set" rewards from here http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/offers/external_bonus/original_tokuten.html ?
Do I need to order the whole set at once or are separate orders valid too?
Ordering them separately should work. It looks like the bonuses are just through CDJapan though? So only order from them if you do.
I've found that ordering them separately works, but I've only done it with Toranoana.
Only 5k on Mandarake, nice. Guess I"ll buy one after I work on my Biribiri shrine.
Still available new, but manda is pretty much new im my experience. And its an alter, so paint is never an issue with them.
No buy it now.
Sell her to me because I didn't win.
Why are these threads still shit? It's February
How much you get her for?
I had to bend over and take the 130 charge like a bitch.
Why was i afraid to get into buyfagging 2 years ago when i wanted too...
>why are these threads still shit
>the thread is actually going smoothly
The only reason you think that is because you are part of the problem
This thread is much better than it has been the past two months. Explain why it's bad, or point out why it's bad. Alternatively, stop stirring shit.
Seriously, what do they expect us to talk about?
We are talking wonfes, personal purchases, helping one another.
Seems like what any thread should be like.
I paid 150, so I got a bit worse than you, I too didn't buy her back then and have been holding off thinking there would be a good chance, but the price jump and everything hit. So i waited for a month that I didn't have anything else coming and paid the extra bit. Unfortunately I did the same thing with Ultimate Madoka So I'll probably take that hit sometime soon.
I'll probably buy both of the Muramasa Kitsune to go with Momo, and more than likely the new DLC character's statue that will inevitably be made.
Who is they?
She is available at plamoya for 23k yen I think, yesterday I saw one at mandarake for 12k but it got sold out and I bought the black version
So I'm wanting to order this, but have no clue how the shipping works exactly. I've read the guide and amiami's shipping info. So can some anon give me a clue on how much this would cost me, and what kind of shipping I should choose? http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=CGD2-79208
It was just in reference to who you were replying to.
Yeah, i was kinda lucky, they disappear fast on manda. And I got kongiku a little while back, haven't taken her out yet, but I admire her every few days. That rack is ridiculous.
Shipping is determined when the item is released.
That head size just doesn't look right to me, her waist/head ratio is odd...
I would, but swimsuit Misaka is 12k without shipping due to NY jewing it up.
So there's no guess at what it would be around for someone that lives in the U.S?
About 1000y with sal, 80% of that cost is amiami stuffing the box with paper. Unless they've got a box that smaller than the one they use for nendos.
Have another look at the guide and see what it says about your country and pick based on how long you want to wait.
Yeah, I think the head's too small. Wasn't a huge fan of the game either, it was pretty average.
Chitanda can wait, Mikoto a best.
Correction, it's now 15k. Fuck you Nippon Yassan.
Which part of shipping is determined when the item is released that you didn't get?
Also there are rates for you to use, you know, right next to their FAQ
I'd guess around $5-10 usd.
>got two of her for only 9k a piece
Damn anon, you missed out.
but the head seems fine, I think your perception may be distorted by anime big heads
It's gonna be more than the price of that item, i can guarantee it.
There's a reason why people do bulk orders, its saves you money, nickel and diming little things will leave you with a larger bill for shipping than what you are getting.
I've spent almost a grand on shipping, for about 4k worth of figs, shit adds up FAST.
No one to blame but yourself.
Wait, so you cancelled too many orders so they decided to get back at you not by shutting your account down, but by cancelling all your remaining orders? Either I'm misunderstanding something or that seems pretty silly.
what is the most you have ever spent on a single figure?
>I-it's not like I still want you to buy from me or anything!
Glad I haven't experienced Amiko's tsun side yet.
Yeah, you're probably a little right, I have grown accustomed to my Puella big heads.
It does look good though.
>don't order shit if you're not gonna be paying faglord
>you cancel too much
>you fuck with our inventory
>sorry for the in convenience
Hopefully that isn't me next year...
But i feel like it could be, I'm about to put a picture of myself by my monitor where I'm scowling, so I can shame my future self.
I just need to stop searching sites... Manda/ami is just too addicting.
Although if we're just counting anime figures, it would be maybe $150 or 140? For either Revy or Shiroyasha. I forget their exact amounts.
>seems pretty silly
Not at all. They buy stock from companies to re sell to customers coming to their website. If someone orders a bunch of figures and doesn't pay for any of them, that's money lost due to the spare stock. They cancel the orders so someone who actually pays for their orders can pay for them.
How much you thinking? Got an MFC?
This, but it is still pretty tsundere.
They just put what they have back up for order, it really doesn't affect them that much in the end, there will always be retard out there being retarded with money.
Not saying they shouldn't banhammer this fag though, he deserves it.
Yeah, I'm surprised he wasn't just blacklisted.
pretty sure he was saying its silly they didn't just ban him.
I still did not understand why they didn't cancel my account, when they gave me a warning last year i already had made a account with a different address.
I can actually blame my country, i should move to somewhere else.
Now during wonfes, will we be able to buy from them throughout the festival, or will be have to wait later for the ability to buy/pre-order.
And if we do, what shop is best for that?
how the hell is your country responsible for you placing orders on stuff and cancelling?
anyway you sound like a dipshit repeat offender, you probably should be banned.
How could your country be responsible?
>not buying the superior version
Too stacked wouldn't hot glue
So for the record, success.
Im not exactly sure myself anon, but I really hope that they go up on one of the main three. I need this
Aleatory 60% taxes.
My account was 4 years old i almost didn't get taxed most of the time. Six months every package was getting caught, most of my cancellations were just a figure not a entire monthly order. Last drop was Alter's Dizzy.
>dat hair bush
WTF are you doing mandarake?
>Only ordered 2 books
>Still missed one
Guey, dejate de esas cosas, me estas antojando esas piernas.
but you can't get them
