>miku in OP
this is going to be a shit thread isn't it
any link on where I can know the event exclusives for Winter Wonfest 2014?
Oppai oh yeah
Please tell me this is going to bargain bin ;_;
this is gonna be a shit wonfes, i can feel it

Meanwhile, the pajamas is in the standard shop.
>10k yen for 21cm fig
And yet every kuroneko fan will eat her up
what about them
You don't want her even if she does.
Who is the best sub group for Milky Holmes?
Is Nippon-Yasan usually slow at responding to emails?
Actually, this isn't the first time I've heard someone say Clayz sucks, but why is that?
Slow? They didn't respond to my 3 emails or my messages when I used that comment section below orders. Customer service is utter shit there. I waited for a month to get my response.
I had to start Paypal Dispute against them to get my money back. Didn't even take a day and they refunded me.
I don't see any carrot eating animals
As long as hotwheels doesn't get her fig i'm happy to wait as long as i can.
Their QC is a guaranteed disaster.
QC stands for Quality Control I assume? Well now that's too bad. Either way there's plenty of other good Kuroneko figures, so I'll just get the ones I'm missing.
If you really want it, there's a high chance it will bargain bin.
It's a game of luck, I guess. Whenever I had a question or wanted to change something order wise they normally responded within 24 hours, or 48 tops. Although cases like >>101559354 happen too.
I'm planning on sending a small package to the US, but the problem is that I don't know much of customs/laws in the different states. One of the items I'm planning on shipping is a doujin from C83 that depicts lolified version of some characters. It's all artsy as hell, but I'm wondering if it's safe at all. It's pure vanilla, so at best if they see it, I'm thinking they'll just dispose of it if ever. A friend of mine was going to throw it away because he didn't want it near his house at all, didn't even bother looking inside the piece.
Finally got Dokes in her school outfit.
Unfortunately, she's got this little problem with the upper part of her back. That's supposed to be over the hole for the stand peg.
Anyone had experience with how GSC has handled this kinda stuff before?
If it does, I might get it.
Thats a funny way of saying Kirino
When and if you ever get it post pics.
they're both shit
Will do. You interested too, anon?
Yes but I know it will be a disaster no matter what so ill let you take the plunge. I love one pieces and need more figures with them.
What could possibly be inside the box?
Oh well there is my address.
Didn't think about this
Thanks for pointing it out.

And this is one reason why I go full OCD over every single picture I post. Vanity is the other reason.
Now you can join Ahmed-kun's club, Ashley.
Holy shit the japs must REALLY hate used stuff. I've been following this item on yahoo auctions for almost three months now that is almost down to a third of the going price of unopened ones, and it still hasn't received a single bid. He's actually been lowering the price by 100 yen every single time he relists it.
I'm going to buy it when I get my tax refund.
I usually do, I guess I was just over excited about my Saber mug
>the logic in that image
So would any of you actually wear this outside?
I wear my mokocchi shirt outside, so probably.
Yes probably, guy round here wear skirts so I guess I'd be fine.
they are called utilikilts you asshole
I wear this outside, why wouldn't I wear that?
Its not ridiculous looking so yes.
Doesn't look bad, I wouldn't mind wearing it
I still think this is better as it looks cuter
How about this?
No because I'm not a filthy con goer.
Nah, fuck that I hate all over print shorts.
Who says you have to wear it to a con?
I'd happily wear it to the pub.
Sure you won't get beaten up?
No. Fuck off
The shirt doesn't even look that bad, don't see the problem.
Because people who go to cons are also the ones that feel the need to expose their power level to the world.

I hope they know there's more than 2 classes in this game.
I mean, a archer or warrior would nice ya know.
The mystic one is a GK. There's a Lancer GK and Priest GK. Leather armors look ugly on Elins.
Hey, I recognize that bulge.
I've got a very cute Kasumi in the mail today
I am not sure how accurate this is
Is that kasumi even street legal? Congrats though anon, a little daring for my tastes but good taste regardless.

There's really nothing to be scared if you're an American importing loli, unless you also have cp on your computer.
This. Pretty sure its 100% illegal, although I don't know if its treated entirely the same as possessing child porn.
I want to masturbate until no cum is left, why is the world so cruel
Does anyone know what these are like?
Thinking of getting one to replace my shitty mouse mat.
I wear a range of anime shirts, so sure why not.
Something like this doesn't exist for the rest of the world, does it?
It's not that hard to research it for your own country.

Living in the middle of fucknowhere, you'd be surprised.
My Flynn arrived today. He is excellent, I can't wait for him to be joined by Estelle.
Which one is the Mandarake store that takes forever to ship and to respond to emails?
Also, finally got me some Digidestined! Some good stash today. They are absolutely TINY, even smaller than a Nendo but they look great and are full of nostalgia. I was pleasantly surprised to see their crests are engraved into their bases as well.
I'm tempted to buy this just because of the face
A little too lewd for me; fucking Kotobukya, I wanted her in her suit or regular uniform. Got anymore pics?
Yes I would also liked her in her suit or uniform a little more

They're ridiculously thin. I ended up framing mine.
Then if it comes to that, I'll be glad to be your guinea pig, anon.
that's what the VPN is for
If I preorder something on GSC's website do I have to pay for it right now or when it comes out?
Any thoughts on how go about producing low scale original merch?
>Total of six to collect including one secret body
I wonder if the secret will just be another recolor of the existing bodies or a totally different sculpt. Anyway, not really impressed with the colors and bodies.
>loli must be 18
Usually when it's ready to ship, but it varies. Read the product page of whatever you're ordering to see if it says otherwise.
It's allowed to look underaged but not actually be underaged.
It doesn't, so I guess I will have to pay when it ships.
>I will have to pay when it ships
You should remember that GSC has he tendency to bill you a week or two prior to the actually shipping date though.
Is there any way to carefully display an artbook within an ikea detolf display case?
I have pic related currently on my shelf, and a preorder on the shiki figure in the same pose later this month. I wanted to pose them together, with the artbook in the back.
Is there some sort of stand I can use so I dont chance bending/warping the bottom of the book?
Are there any companies that produce custom nendoroids?
Oh, that I didn't know, since it's my first time preordering something from their website. Thank you for telling me that anon.
>order 2 shirts in december
>only 1 arrived today
Now I got to sift through piles of moonrune mails and invoices.
On the upside, the Schiller quote will make a great distraction if anyone ever asks.
I doubt anyone will ask about that one, aside from the quote the motive looks ordinary enough to pass off as a your normal random graphic tee.
Order Kongo cause I need a ship.
>Takao ship model back in stock
Not enough budget to get both.
so has anyone used paypal with GSC? It seems my payment has been >pending since i pre-ordered some stuff in december.
Is that normal? Does it just mean they'll complete the payment when my shit ships?
was looking more for where to buy a decent one from other people that had done something similar.
But yes, thank you. I'll just have to take a look around online for one that would fit aesthetically.
As with everything else you might want to add some UV filter sheets to your detolf to reduce aging of the print.
A book stand and UV filter sheets. Lots of new things for me to find where to buy. Thank you, I try to keep the lighting in the area to a minimum but I understand the need.
Might just keep it in the dark closet with the other art books if it's too much trouble; but I'll keep my eye out. Thanks anon
that's a lot of chewing gum to chew.

I'm tempted to buy this. Never ordered a 3D mousepad before, since I doubt they're comfortable.
But I must buy the Yaya.
>I doubt they're comfortable
Surely you jest, they provide the perfect rest for your wrist, that's their practical use.
I've got a nendo problem. Just got my January order with a total of 4, plus a Cu-Poche, 1 from December and 1 second hand.
I initially went into this really only wanting scales. How did this happen?
>They are still playing with dolls
>they are still drinking cheap canned booze together
Depending on where you live RSAL will be just as fast as EMS.
>"You risk permanently losing your account"
Think I could weasel my way into it? Or at least make a new account when I'm done?
Question anon, how much did that cost.
Dey cute mane.
Oh god why is this so funny
Alternatively, if anyone wants to buy
http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-002552, you should drop me a mail. I'm willing so shave off 2000JPY or so for you to save my account from being banned.

No idea, but they're multiplying on my end
Well it's this: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-002550
But with an AmiAmi exclusive wall scroll.
If they ban you, just use an another credit card and they won't see shit.
Been using paypal, should I just make a new one of those?
Also, don't they check the address?
You're safe unless they sent you an email that said "final warning".
Right. Haven't gotten that, but I did send them a support message asking about it. I'll hope for the best, thanks don.
Nah, just where it's hosted
I had 2. They are incredibly comfortable, but they will get the odd stare at any LAN party.
They are just jealous cause they dont have breast rests.
You should get some oshiri pads too, then they'll really be jealous.
All that painting will be fun.
Do they make bootlegs of the amisports cycling jerseys? I wanted to grab one for a guy I know as a gag gift but I don't want to spend $100 on a gag gift.
You could just do a custom print on one from a shop local to you.
It will still be expensive but not as expensive.
I think that's Dr.Pepper.
There's a website that does custom cycling clothes, I forgot the name but you can choose any color combination you want and one of their patterns.
Pretty sure it's Kopparberg
The cans on Google images don't look anything like the ones they're holding.
Iku very soon
Well it's definitely not Dr. Pepper
It sucks even more when you develop the mentality of trying to complete nendo sets.
I wouldn't mind all of them
Eh, might ask about that. Don't know where I'd grab a pattern though. You think a booru would have one?
Please N-Y ship it.

What about non-loli but slightly lewd merch in Canada?
porn is legal in Canada.
I just finished watching Hyouka this is NOT what I wanted to see
those hands look awkward as fuck
Got a lewd doujinshi package opened by customs (two doujinshi by Mitarashi Club, Sailor Mercury and Mugi x Azucat). The sealed plastic bags were ripped off, the covers were slightly damage, and it was obvious that it was inspected from cover to cover , but they still sent it through.
Not too long ago tough, some Canadian was arrested for importing a sex doll. He was from one of the yellow zones, but the package was intercepted by customs in a green zone.
How much time does it take for bookdepository.co.uk to ship manga?
I knw I shouldn't trust the "usually dispatched in 48 hours", but I thought that they would at least change the status from "Processing".
So I'm guessing something like this dakimakura (http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=CGD2-76286) should be fine, then? I asked yesterday, but I'm still not sure.
My first dakimakura was delivered today. I'm happy.
She actually looks pretty nice, but I have no clue as to her origin.
That's not even real porn, just a bit lewd and she's clearly not a loli. Would the frosty moe really seize that?
Okay then, thanks.
For a second there I really thought that I would get asspounded in prison by a nigger for mai shipfu.
Anybody thinking about the Mai Mai Kickstarter?
Does no one use bookdepository?
It depends. Last time I got a notice 1 day later and 3 days later for another item from the same order. Usually it takes 1-4 days for me. Delivery time is even more random, though.
Oh shit yes
Ordered twice from them. They are super fucking slow in general. RSAL from Japan was faster than their Royal Cunt shipping. First package shipped after 6 or 7 days, second after 5. Had to wait 21 and 28 days for each to arrive.
Isn't this what fansubs are for?
Could my Akarin Nendo have spread its invisibility to the box itself?
Anyone from Brazil here? My order just got sent to a post office here in my town (It doesn't specify which) and I'm pretty sure I got taxed. How long does it take to get a notice or something so I can pick it up?
Check your country's tracking service.
Also, be patient. My last RSAL order was like that for weeks and then it suddenly showed up in my country's tracking.
I don't know if I should ask here, but I might as well.
Does it really take up to 2 month for a package to arrive from Canada to Romania(Easter Europe)?
Akari's buns are now counted as explosives.
How good is HLJ about adding books if you asked them to stock specific ones?
Yeah, local tracking isn't showing anything yet.
Well, I don't know anything about Sweden to be honest, but if it's the same as here, it's too early to worry. Mine was really sudden too, it was already dispatched from inward office of exchange when I checked.
From where are you?
Fellow Swede here, Posten never shows any tracking for me.
Aw. They've shown when I've sent from them at least.
And of course when I order locally.
That looks really nice, but quite pricey.
I remember when I got her, package sat in the post office for 2 weeks. Mailman said he forgot about it.
Damn that looks really cute.
>order from HLJ
>they send me a box with HOBBY LINK JAPAN written on the side
What exactly were you expecting?
Newegg has their name on their shipping box. Amazon does too. Mandarake does too. Why does this surprise you?
I am partial to Suruga-ya's box.

Is there a good way to protect chocolate through shipping without it melting? Valentine's coming up next week. Don't want it to ruin my gift.

Hi , I need some help , one of my orders from Jungle has gone lost , I used RSAL and it was my believe that its insured up to 5000 yen , I asked them if they could put a claim with the postal service in japan and they say there is no such thing and that I can't get a refund , I don't understand why there is any insurance in the first place , anyway I decided to open a claim with paypal only the 44 day of purchase , I have checked my neighbor and depot to make sure it wasn't maybe there , and I called royal mail and they told me that the claim can only be done on the senders side , what Id like to know is will paypal refund me and also is it true that they can't make a claim with Japan post?
Funny, is this only if they actually go through your shit? I went to get Secret Flowers 1-5, only won #4 and had it come in. Nobody showed up to cuff me in my "illegal" state. Damn america.
What >>101566776 and >>101566589
said. I currently have about 50 or so myself. They are just too cute.
Do we know if Log Horizon is supposed to get virtually any merch? It's kind of disappointing.
Posten tends to show once it's actually within the country.
I have Yuzuko as well. Too bad she'll be all alone.
it's not like you're ordering porn
Arrived this morning, still waiting for my madoka/homura signboard and Madoka Maiko 1/8.
At best a meh tier fig of the assassin girl thats always with shiro. As much as I enjoy Log Horizon I think that's as far as it will go merch wise outside of an increase in LN sales.
>not even a wall scroll
This is what bites my ass. I don't expect Shiroe figures. Just a wall scroll would be nice.
As long as the package tracking number shows that it was never updated to DELIVERED, I think PayPal will side with you. Make sure you make your message and statements to PayPal as impersonal as possible and outline the situation. Show how you are the reasonable and patient one in the situation and the seller is one who is failing to fulfill their transaction obligations.
Fuck, I would wanted a Chi-chan with school uniform made by Alter.
Log Horizon is a children's show, so it's more likely to get some small, cheap toys.
Rather have this.
Quality scale when?
Not anytime this year ;_;
>Have fig in stock set up
>Item i wanted added today and sold out
Jesus, I'm pretty sad right now, must've sold out before even fig in stock figured it out. I wish I didn't have to sleep when they post most of their shit.
also tracking shows has arrived in the UK but been stuck in depot at HWDC langley for over 3 weeks , never been delivered and no custom charges , just hope I can get my money back , feel bad for opening a case but they left me no choice
I know she came out pretty good for FREEing too
Do you buy a lot of posters Anon?
Congratz anon. Although I heard that game was really average. What comes with the box ...besides the game of course.
No, but I think I'd like that one.
Hmm, something similar is happening to me...
Will I have to dispute with Mandarake? Or will they be reasonable? Still have never gotten any return emails ever, so kinda pissed.
I live in america.
EMS or RSAL? I seemed to have a lag with a few EMS lately getting out of Japan.
I buy artbooks with a lot of pin-ups...if that counts? What sparked your interest for posters anon? Is it the vintage feel of a movie poster on the wall perhaps?
This is getting a little ridiculous.
How do you know if you have a pinup, and how do you get it out without damaging it? I have a To Love-Ru artbook and I wondered if I had a pinup in the middle, but am afraid of tearing an actual page.
Rsal, only hope at this point is a return to sender, but god knows how long that will take from the uk.
No way am I wasting money calling them (the UK post site is a fucking nightmare, wanted to kill myself while trying to find a way to contact anyone), so my only hope is that Manda will own up to this fuckup. If not I'll have to dispute, and since there's no delivery, and my address is confirmed i should get my money back.
Yeah, they're my favorite thing to collect. Easy to store, easy to display, relatively cheap.
mandarake will black list you if you make a claim with paypal , happened to me
Kinda good that I decide to get Kongo. She is pretty much 3 shades of gray/grey.
good luck disputing that.
Yeah the game is not specially good, it's still enjoyable if you are a big fan of the show, and it's curious to see a different plot/world instead of the deconstruction we followed in the actual show. Also the game is fully voiced, so I can still understand a few things just by hearing the conversations:
It comes with the OST cd, artbook, some kind of dlc costumes and cell phone cleaner.
Well, I don't tear them out myself either. What I was instructed by other anons was to get a copy on some site that i cant remember the blasted name of, and then go get that printed and then framed.
Better to keep the pin up in good condition in the artbook or mag, even if it's just to keep the item in good condition.
True true. I've got a few preorder/limited copy of handheld japanese games as well, purely for the extra content. I am tempted to learn japanese to get through the waves of text.
Is the artbook thick or pitiful?
it's like you're not even trying
That word doesn't mean what you think it means
I never signed for shit though, and the email they sent me confirming payment all give my real address.
They can't send me nothing and not expect me to dispute this. I mean it's 100% their fault if they put the UK instead of US AFTER i paid and everything is finalized with correct info.
Do they ban you if you dispute? don't really care, as i need my money back, but they are 100% at fault here.
Oh i have not baught any posters as of yet.
I asked because im in the process of purchasing pic related+Heroes and they had some anime related ones that reminded me of this thread.
It's possible they gave you the wrong tracking number, other people have been complaining about it.
Well if you are buying posters, only things i can really say is consider laminating or framing them. Might start taking up wall space if you let it fly on too much.
I'm considering maybe getting this framed, but i'm going through my artbooks to see if I have anything a little more...tasteful.
Well, i've sent them 4 emails since 3 days ago, no response.
Kinda losing faith in them right now, guess they don't give customer service.
Tasteful you say?
All the ones I want are 20,000yen exclusive store benefits. I wish some hero martyr would scan his and upload it online so I can bootleg it.
Aye, that would be a great choice too, Have 4 different type moon artbooks to go through, including the garden of sinners extra chorus.
Sadly she's too tasteful for my shameful den of a blue room.
If you want a tasteful Mahoyo poster frame look no further.
No problem. I mean, if anything, if your appeal fails, you'd still be in the same situation as now (no package, uncooperative seller), so there's no loss on your part to try and get something.
He meant the price you fucking idiot
Yeah wow so funny. Ahahaha XDDDDDD
Does anyone have any experience building the Girls und Panzer model kits?
I want it.
Every time...every damn time.
Go tell that to /k/, I fucking DARE you.
I, too, am interested in this.
So i'm relatively new to the buyfagging world, how long does it usually take before recent or current shows get figs? I assume it has to do with popularity as well as luck, but is there any kind of average to go by?
Go back to /k/
But anon, I never left.
Go and stay go
I just got my haul from the online sale BestBuy was having last week. Poppy hill for my sister, and Tsuritama and Zatch Bell! for me.
Taken from phone.
Nah, I like it here too.
>some Canadian was arrested for importing a sex doll
How do they come up with laws like these? People are paying fucking taxes to them only to get fucked in the ass by laws that serve no one but a few morally obsessed idiots.
Do Christian 'morals' go as far as to protect the rights of inanimate objects? Protect the rights of DRAWINGS because they do not like it? Not too far fetched as they think imaginary figures like Jesus 'n palls are real too.
I have a hard time resisting cute boys doing cute things.
hello guys is there any kill a kill action figure yet?
Nope. Trigger officially released a statement saying none will ever be made.
epitome of board cancer
when wiill they make one? i like ryuko very much.
Yeah, I just want to know if you need to glue all of the pieces together or not. The modeling book uses three different types, and I don't know which one does what, or if they're really needed.
Yes, it's like a classic model kit.
yeah i browse it regularly but it's not for anime
thats why i asked here
Go back and stay there, that board is more suited to your cancerous existence
Well, I've done a lot of military scale models in my time for fun, so I have at least a little experience if nothing else.
Usually model guides will tell you to buy a shit ton of different glues and paints, usually because they want you to buy their paints or they have a contract with a company that does.
I've personally found that for plastic, you really only need basic plastic modeling glue, some finer super glue for precision work, and possibly wood modeling glue if you are working with wood (which isn't the case here). As for paint, generally get what you feel you need rather than what the guide tells you to get. Also, make sure to have a file to remove flash and possibly some black thread for cables/wires. Use a spray paint and model paint tape for any surface larger than a few brush strokes.
The fun part about models is being able to configure and paint them however you want! Don't be afraid to experiment and find what works for you.
Not him but get out. We don't do that elitist bullshit here.
>We don't do that elitist bullshit here.
Where the fuck do you think you are?
Anybody ever open a dispute with manda? Do they just automatically ban you?
It's probably good for me in the end if the do, but still.
trips confirm it
Both of you, get the fuck out.
>We don't do that elitist bullshit here.
Either lurk more or get out.
Buyfag threads have always been for everyone. If you want to bitch about other websites like a bunch of pathetic shitheads then you can go do that on the rest of /a/, but not here. Grow the fuck up.
>Buyfag threads have always been for everyone.
Your new is showing.
>newfags trying to set their own rules in place
>Telling other people to grow up.
Buyfag threads are only for those that deserve it.
Clearly you don't.
Go back to MFC faggot.
Damn, adding some stuff I forgot to that:
For military models your going to want to use acrylic paints rather than enamel. Acrylic tends to be more of a subdued/natural colour where as enamels are bright and shiny.
A good beginners tip for painting is to master dry brushing. Using one of your more beat-up shitty brushes, dip it in paint of a lighter colour than the base colour your going to paint over and get most of the paint out on a piece of paper towel or newspaper or w/e. Then lightly highten raised surfaces and such so they ever-so-faintly differ from the base colour. This is probably a good technique to look up a proper guide for as well.
It might be a good idea to google some military modeling guides as well to get some better pictures of the techniques i'm talking about etc.
Basically, have fun and do research if you feel overwhelmed.
I swear, I come into every thread and ctrl+f my name just to see if something like this has happened.
>I come into every thread and ctrl+f my name
I needed $5.01 to add to my Amazon order for free shipping, and this was $6 so I went for it.
My mailman is a total bro though. He asked me if I got the package he left in front of my house the other day, just to verify no one stole it. When I had trouble remembering, he had a worried look on his face. It was a textbook though, which is why I couldn't remember. I was worried it was one of my USAL packages.
I had to walk through 2 feet of snow up hill while sick to pick her up, but it was worth it.
I'm never going to forget your fuck up Ahmed-kun
>Not knowing about Ahmed-kun
So should I use the glues that the modeling book uses (Tamiya Cement, Mr. Cement S), or are there better, local alternatives?
I- i wish i could do that for my waifu.
I'm never going to forget it either. Suffering is being paranoid or tense on the internet as anonymous.
I fixed it a bit.
Tamiya is awesome, especially their paints for military models. I would highly recommend them.
Testors is what most local stores will recommend to you. It's good but not the best.
If the guide recommends Tamiya I would go for it.
Also, don't be afraid to ask the shop owner for his opinion. Most of the guys who own hobby stores are very much into modeling/hobbying and would love to help you out.
Wait, I think I'm actually obligated to post this instead of Ajimu
That gave me a good laugh.
It's better than having your boxer friends finding out that you collect anime figures.
please stop increasing the blog.
Yeah. That's fair.
Artcow is having its 2 for one 25 dollar dakimakura sale.
I cant find any decent images of Akari Mizunashi that are large enough to be sized up to daki size. ;_;
I have checked most major anime image databses and /w/ vector site. but it's hard to tell what is large enough even with their janky app.
Anyone make one in the past or know what size I should be looking for that can be zoomed in on without too muchproblem
Oh what's this
ModelBro here with one last question since we are on the topic.
I've looked at the guides entry on garage kits, and they seem reasonably within my skill range as far as actually assembling and painting them; but I have no idea where to actually get a kit from. Anyone know of any good sites I can check?
Do model shops in the US sell Tamiya stuff? Or is there a good place to buy them online?
>a pleb with a bad camera
I'm a winner
You can check the guide, it's a pretty good site.
Yep, any model shop worth it's name will carry Tamiya. Allong with Revell and Testors they are one of the big names in the model industry.
You're the guy who got it for 20K, right? Very nice, I'd be jelly if that was my waifu.
Alright, now I just have to find one near where I live. Thanks for all your help man.
Do you have any tips to give before I start building tank models for the first time?
yeah, too bad I need to spend another 10k on a pillow that will actually fit inside it. It seems all North American pillows only go up to about 130cm
Where do you see that?
Go for Royal Pillow, made in America, perfect size. price is about $30-35 shipped,
WE'VE DONE OUR WAITING
TEN YEARS OF IT
Make your own, its cheap and easy.
Is that a garage kit or something?
This has been my only deterrent for getting a daki. Specially since not only will the 20K cost of the cover and pillow itself be high for 3rd world standards, but the shipping of the pillow would probably be the final nail on the coffin.
Not him, but I saw it too on the adverstising emails that they send me. The thing is that I don't trust in the quality.
I had assumed butterfly girl was 1/8 right until I actually opened the box.
She's kind of big.
How am I doing for 2 years' buyfagging?
I get mine here, http://www.e2046.com/
But next time look at the buyfag store digest, it tells you everything you need to know.
it doesn't seem like they ship to Canada, but I might be wrong. Do you have a recommendation for which material?
>How am I doing for 2 years' buyfagging?
If you have to ask, then you are not doing very well.
>how am I doing
Promptly kill yourself.
I ordered two last time they were good quality.
>doesn't even know the name of characters he spends this much money on
>How am I doing for 2 years' buyfagging?
There's no such thing as good, only not shit. And you're doing fairly shit.
Man, I always forget how tiny figma are.
I am using their Cluster Fiber. After months of intense cuddling, the pillow is still full and thick.
Their medium size fills a 150x50cm cover completely (no excess or sagging).
To the guy who collected tons of Saber figures: You might've just lost to Caster.
let me guess nanoha was one of your first purchases? when i first dipped a toe into buyfag threads a few years ago having her seemed almost mandatory
You're doing awful.
Oh, look, one of those faggots who collects PVC so they can fit in. Fuck off back to MAL.
I know. That's nowhere near enough Mikus.
>You might've just lost to Caster.
it's not exactly news
That was the one where the customs inspector was quoted saying something like, "They teach you about stuff like this, but I wasn't prepared for the real thing." as if he'd seen a pile of mangled corpses.
Make me a guro one and i think about it.
Last time I counted there were only two...
She was fairly recent actually. I bought her because she was going cheap and then had to buy Fate to keep her company, who was full price, so overall not an optimal purchase.
Best part was the sexdoll was see through plastic
their own fucking fault for opening other people's stuff
;_; z- zenbu figma at wonfes, r- right...?
I might be blind, but I only see two in there.
well, there is the Calne Ca one.
Calne is not near as grotesque as she could be.
Newfags always think Nymph is miku.
Nymph is not Miku ya know.
Nymph is not Miku, anon.
They caught the guy fucking it.
Then she's a Miku clone, whatever.
Not even close.
you should probably go watch more anime before you embarrass yourself any more.
Yes. A lot of people often confuse them both.
What comes first anon, march, or August?
August is a March clone
Don't isult Miku like that. Nymph is a trash character.
At least she's a character.
>Miku a dead
Is that Kurisu figure leaning?
You take that back
I will fight you
No-winged bitch, go home.
>Atleast she's a poorly written annoying pity pandering bitch for retarded lolifags
Still more of a character than a walking ad.
Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say "go back to MFC"?
Lord knows that place is just as cancerous anyhow.
Don't even compare Nymph to that piece of trash.
Definitely not. Absolutely not.
MAL, MFC, anywhere but here.
Daki virgin here, Peachskin vs. 2-Way Tricot.
Question for any UK buyfags about. Have any of you imported Eroge before?
I'm interested mainly in what they are labeled as on a customs declaration, because you can order a game that comes with a daki cover for example.
Are they still labeled as "PC Soft" or something similar in that case?
I was taking a look at the boxes of my figures today and I noticed printed on the back "Made in China"
Do you mean to tell me my Japanese PVC is actually made by chinks
Everything is made in China.
>my Japanese PVC
That PS&G set is awesome anon.
Everything you bought is a bootleg.
Best girl has finally arrived!
Even Japanese cartoons are made by chinks, why would your plastic statues be any different?
You dun goof'd anon.
Thanks, they are probably my favourite part of the collection.
It would be even better if Kneesocks and Scanty were the same shade of red, it's not visible in the pic but Scanty is a noticeable few shades brighter.
I did ask on here a while back, but never heard if anyone else had noticed the same thing.
Nearly all pvc figs is made in china with licensing from japan with the prototype they model it on made by japs. GF are usually fan made and jap build. Custom made shit.
What's up with Holo fig prices? The cheapest I can find is $70 and most are $150 and up. Just not many made/high demand?
But 90% of my figures are preordered from Amiami
I have them, and I noticed. I don't mind it too much though.
High demand. Spice & Wolf is pretty popular, and all of her figures are long since sold out.
>not having figurines made out of folded pvc
Yeah, I think that happened to almost all of them. You can see plenty of complaints about it on mfc.
Anon, PVC is poisonous.
Why would the Japanese want to pollute their land with poison if they can get China to do it?
Oh, right, well, thanks for confirming.
Komaeda arrived. He's actually a lot nicer than I'd expected.
Are your figures in direct sunlight?
>Tfw F/SN Caster will never get a figure
>Tfw tennis Caster from Carnival Phantasm will never get a figure
Life is suffering.
I'm currently trying to decide weather I want a female or male dollfie for my first purchase.
So far, its between Farkas and Excellen Browning. Who would you choose?
Go for the male one of course. What are you, a faggot ?
No, that's just the lighting in my room. I turned the flash off because it was making everything too bright. My figures aren't really in any danger of sunlight, since even if I did open the blinds, the sun only goes about a foot or so into my room from the angle it's usually at. Here's a picture I took a few days ago, for reference. I haven't posted any pictures of my entire collection in a while, now that I think of it.
I do prefer what he comes with, but her face is quite enchanting, so thats my only hang-up.
Buy both and put her face on his.
That would be terrifying.
Though I do intend to get both at one point, I just only have the extra funds for one.
Both look horrible, anon. Get a Bluefairy instead.
Other than her eyes, the whole facial structure just doesn't appeal to me. The accessories are nice though.
T- THE EYES.
I CAN SEE ETERNITY.
You mean the countdown toward Laurafag's suicide
They really fucked up with him. I can't believe he looks so terrible.
whats the best proxy for loli stuff?
not living in a shithole
I don't think he means that kind of proxy.
>He's actually a lot nicer than I'd expected.
I'm still waiting for mine but I certainly hope you're right.
If you're still here, where'd you find yours? yja?
Are you fucking serious?
You're missing Meiya and Yui!
>They really fucked up with him.
Not at all. He looks really good in person, maybe pictures don't give him enough credit.
I sure any proxy sending service will work but.. Your country's custom service will probably take issue if it lewd. Pray it not open.
Not going to post pics since my camera is shitty. Got this guy in the post today and really impressed with the quality of the figure, he's nice and bulky with great detail.
they dont give a shit, any recommendations for YJA? I'm thinking of using yokatta.
I tried using NY as a proxy but they never replied, I guess it was too lewd for them
>buying a figure of mai waifu from amazon
>worried that it might be a fake
>got that shit yesterday
>open up the box
>see that glorious pierrot sticker
Also that was the first figure that I bought.
I didn't expect her to be this huge.
>buying from amazon
I hope you at least checked everywhere else first.
So how many anons pre-ordered this? It's sold out almost everywhere already.
I couldn't be arsed to.
Joke's on you, I don't even like Muv Luv
Didn't think DC would be popular
Pretty jealous, I didn't have funds at the time for him and it has slipped my mind since then.
Pre-paid for this just today, no idea when exactly it will show up...
>searching for figure for about a week or two
>pops up on amiami preowned A/B
>buy the shit out of it
>next day amiami has it brand new
There's no way amiami would cancel this so I guess I'll have to suck it up.
I hope there won't be any quality issues because of this.
Even if you would successfully cancel with AmiAmi, iirc, they don't let you order the same item from them again after you've cancelled it.
The only thing holding me back from getting that figure is his face, hes not jolly enough.
That's a pretty nick GK! How much was he?
I was lucky enough to notice that he was on back order not long after I rewatched Fate/Zero. Luck of the draw, I guess. That being said, the box was slightly damaged when it arrived, which I can only assume was a result of some heavy-handedness from the customs officers.
You get a second head for him, it's far jollier.
I love that figure, its one of my favorites, just for how fun it is.
Now kill yourself for being a heathen
Yes they just shipped my first dakimakura
How long does it take for Amiko to update your email?
>Tfw have to buy the figure of that bitch Waver to get chibi Rider
>not best Tomoko daki
Well, hopefully there won't be anything wrong. Worst thing I've heard about B boxes is that the corners were dented, which I'm not autistic enough to care about.
They knew he wouldn't sell on his own. They were right
Why the fuck are her legs black
That;s slightly terrifying, but I will most likely get it now.
pantyhose, how does it work?
>no eye bags
Please don't bully waver.
To be honest, I liked Waver as a character and thought that he had one of the stronger arcs, but not enough to get a figure of him especially when it's in a less-than-heroic pose.
I'd certainly recommend it, we're not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes to F/Z Rider figures.
What is something that brings a smile to your face when you look at your figures?
Mine is dress off.
Now in before "why is she wearing socks over pantyhose"
I have a really hard time believing that the thing you took a picture of could look that much better in person, sorry. I was hoping for something that looked more like the in-game CGs.
Mine wouldn't exactly be aesthetic, but I love to poke my figures with my finger, and if their pose allows it, I like to hold their hands
I just look at my figures and that makes me smile.
Good for you anon.
I preorded, trying to decide if I want Amazon, but I'll probably get Sorc, so I might as well get them all right?
As far as I can tell amiami still has it as in stock and they put up new pictures.
Ordered the regular color one too because I can
Setting up the figure to admire the detail always makes me smiles, then I would start looking at her underwear and smile even more, only to end up feeling all awkward.
Why don't you put Elsie in the middle, if you have all that empty space on the right side?
I tried that and my figure stepped on my hand!
Why is she smiling about it, I'm HER owner!?
What is the general buyfag opinion on lighted Curio cabinets? I pre-ordered Cerberus, she will be my first quality figure, and I want a display case that will let her beauty be seen without destroying her with sunlight or exposing her to dust.
But I don't have an IKEA for miles around, but have access to a Curio cabinet. What do you think?
tl:dr: Are lighted curio cabinets good or bad for figures.
I giggled. Thanks, anon.
If your going to do lewd things with your figure, you have to at least do a candle light dinner first. What are you, some kind of heathen?
Mine has perfect balance
You know nothing of balance
Notice the guide is lacking in dakimakura stores (bootleg ones)
What are some other good sites besides HH?
Theres a guy on ebay who does gods work for cheap.
Post more Sasuke
Impressive, I concede to you sir.
There are more. Also, fucking post timers
Where is the sasuake balancing sasukes one?
I was going to post that one last because it's my favorite. Oh well, more sasuke
What do you guys think about game prize figures?
I'm looking for the DOAEX 2 pack
I cant wait to explore the possibilities with my own hands.
Not exactly sure, I use one myself, it works for them fine.
I can't believe the Guide actually mentions Sasuke along side Sader
Seems interesting, but I can't get the idea out of my head that the boobs' material will eventually crack and break, I highly doubt that materials is a durable as pvc.
Some things are so bad it's good.
