Read the guide before asking any questions.
Have you gotten your wonfes wishlist done?
>Buy Amico keychain daki
>Generate interest and consideration of an Amico scale
Support the cause.
So, let's talk shipping.
I've noticed as I started diversifying where I order from, the amount I spend on shipping went way up. I know it's inevitable with multiple small orders, but this is really getting ridiculous. Something like $600 over the past 60 days ridiculous.
How do you guys keep your shipping costs down? I combine orders where I can, but I admittedly use EMS almost exclusively, so I'm sure I can save somewhere.
Hmm probably don't use fucking EMS you stupid faggot.
Apart from swapping to USAL or RSAL, Shipping will always be expensive
Only if they make a scale of her packing the Amazon forest into one of her boxes.
The box she comes in will be made of natural wood.
Just here to advertise for amazon.co.jp
Just got an email saying that they will be delivering an order 5 days early cause they were able to restock quickly.
Their shipping options are absolute rubbish, but can't fault them for delivery time.
How much are things like this from Max Factory normally?
Her shield? looks like a shrimp head.
How do you react when your parents see all your buyfaggotry?
USAL all the way. Fedex only for stupidly dense orders like books. I've only used EMS once in the past 3 years and it was because the store messed up on its shipping options and basically charged me 3000 yen to ship 3.3kg of stuff, which works out to be even cheaper than USAL.
my mother doesn't care but she think the huge titted ones are gross.
What the fuck? HLJ just charged me for this, shipping and all, and changed the status to "processing for shipping". And I don't even select automated billing for it.
Well I certainly don't blog about it
Is Fedex a trap? Their prices seem to get lower the heavier packages get, like at least a 40USD lower than EMS is what I'm looking at. I bet there's a hidden tax somewhere, considering it's a private operation.
>I bet there's a hidden tax somewhere
Everything I've ever gotten through FedEx they've charged my extra a week alter. Don't do it.
Fedex/DHL has flat rate boxes. If it fits, it ships, that sort of deal. So for plastic and keychains, it's still pricier than EMS, but a good deal for dense objects like metal bars and books.
doesn't she come out months from now?
That's odd, I'm in the US and I've never had a hidden fee on Fedex shipping from Japan. Are you from a non-US country?
Frosty-moe, so that's probably it, considering FedEx is primarily Murrican.
Yeah, in June. It seems another order I have there is now also showing automated billing and it won't save the change when I try to change it.
Was she with another item that releases in Feb, in your order? Try emailing HLJ about it.
>but she think the huge titted ones are gross
That's funny, those are my mothers favorite ones. Then again that's because she has enormous breasts and finds it hilarious that I developed a fetish for them because of her.
i'm mainly talking about Kongiku from Muramasa. Hers are ridiculously big, she likes everything about her but the breasts. My mom's a puritan and scoffs everytime a movie says fuck.
Soon I hope
they don't care, just tell me not to blow all my money
I want this so badly.
Do you have a figure that you will never open the box for whichever reason?
probably my nana fig, the box is cool and it's worth a lot of money apparently
She's so cute
I open everything I get and cum on them to mark them and let them know they belong to me.
I've actually thought about buying something from this guy: http://www()notbuschmodeling()com/#!gallery/c199t
Anyone ever buy something from him?
Here's his stream: http://www()twitch()tv/cnotbusch
Wishlist ledy, display space not so much.
I need new shelves.
>w/Earphone jack plug
>15cm (figma size)
Amiko you sure know how to make a great deal.
link to his album http://s881.photobucket.com/user/cnotbusch/library/?sort=3&page=1
Not so much a wishlist as a this-looks-interesting-let's-see-if-it-ever-gets-released list.
There are a few things I know I'll buy, though, like Sakura nendo and Sailor Saturn.
This would be more /toy/ related. Not buyfag.
Instead of adding a bunch of random things that you want to keep tabs on to your wishlist that haven't been released yet, why not just subscribe to changes instead?
I think he said he'd pretty much do anything as long as there aren't genitals flopping everywhere.
>This would be more /toy/ related. Not buyfag.
I get he news earlier than the MFC notifications
Could you repeat the question?
No seriously, I have no idea what you are trying to ask about.
how are his toys, but these shits molds you get are better?
>This will never be for sale
I'm not saying his are worse, but buyf/a/gthreads, note the /a/, are for anime/manga related items. /toy/ is for western stuff.
they have nothing to do with anime or glorious japan, you baka gaijin
You do realize that a receipt does the same thing?
>Non anime clothes' physics
you can commission him to sculpt anything...
That fuck leg still bother me.
I don;t see any kawaii uguu waifus, only western shit.
Sonico a shit anyways
Unless you count Whoopie Goldberd meets H.R. Giger
It's just turned inward.
>you should be able to do this
Is that supposed to be Kerrigan? If that's how he sculpts faces i would comission shit from him
who is the biggest cancer?
miku, sonico, or saber?
I think black rock shooter is dying off, kancolle has multiple characters like idolmaster so idk if they would qualify, and tamaki still gets figs but I'm not sure it's at the the big 3 level.
I knew a girl that could turn her ellbow joint to the other side
I've read the guide, but I need some buyf/a/g advice. I recently won some large items on Yahoo auctions (both in boxes roughly 5 lbs./ 2.25 kg and about 18x12x6 inches / 45.75/30.5/15.25 cm). I'm using EMS and I'm shipping to murrica. Would it be cheaper to ship them individually or to have them combined into one package, do you think?
Saber has the whole fantasy thing going for her, and unless you're talking about Arturia as a single character, there's three other version so there's decent variety. Miku is pretty cute and has a good voice attached to her character. Sonico is just a fat cow pandering to people with gross fat fetishes. Maybe if there was more variety in her figures, I'd reconsider.
But that's just my opinion.
Is it possible for there to be too many Asuka figures?
always combine whenever possible
Sonico is the ugliest out of the three, Miku the one with the most oversaturation
No, i wouldn't buy them anyways as i'm not into mecha shows
Wait who's making this? I like those new plugsuits.
>Sonico is just a fat cow pandering to people with gross fat fetishes.
What is your opinion of Pochaco?
One of the only few good things to ever come out of 3.0
how can you be that fat with a neck/head so tiny?
Best of show
so it's never coming out right
>how can you be that fat with a neck/head so tiny?
Head and neck workout.
That's not how it works...
Also why are you bringing in 3DPD physics in 2D?
I don't know but they're the only that's making the new plugsuits for now.
I'm fine with cow tits, mind you. And it's really only certain depictions of Sonico that bug me, whereas I can't think of a single Saber or Miku design I've outrgiht disliked. I don't have the picture, but that punk-rock style Sonico poster that was posted during Saturday's wonfes theads was the only design I'd buy of her.
I like the gift one with the cat hood
Saber is the biggest cancer.
At least Miku and Sonico constantly get different outfits.
Meanwhile, Saber is pretty much always in her armor.
Need more pics
Im so tempted to just cancel the Houki figure. I have a feeling its going to bargainbin quite badly.
At least Saber gave us Sader
Man, I'm a bit disappointed she isn't in her school uniform like Miho is. I was getting the figmas for the team uniforms, now Miho will look out of place since I can't pass up best girl.
can someone tell me who this is??
Buy another Miho, put Yukari's fluffy head on that body.
>The name is on the figure
Rukia in bankai form from Bleach.
Sonico's alter ego Ocinos in her Gult form.
Now there's a thought.
When is he getting a figure?
Well that's because GSC is practically the only company making Miku scales(or might actually be the only company) where as many companies have made Saber scales. Plus Saber has plenty of alternate outfits just being that there are so many versions, just not as varied as Miku.
After Naito. So never.
>helping people is for losers xD
come on now
No. Spoonfeeding is for faggots.
but that's an opinion
After this WonFes, I can believe anything can happen.
Well yeah, it is an opinion. But Spoonfeeding being for idiots is a fact.
>saber in dress being serious
>saber in another dress being serious
>saber in zippers being slutty
>saber in man's suit being serious
>saber in man's suit being slutty
You have the manufacturer and the figures name in the picture, not to mention a source in the bottom right. If he can't find it with those clues he's retarded. Search engines exist in this day and age.
As opposed to
>miku in a body suit being slutty
>miku half naked being slutty
But it doesn't hurt to help people sometimes does it?
It's ok, you tried your best to fit in to /a/ culture and look cool
People get tired of seeing
>Who is x?
Much like how /a/ got tired of seeing
>Recommend me anime to watch
That looks so shitty.
Yes, actually, it does.
Just get out.
>tamaki still gets figs but I'm not sure it's at the the big 3 level.
Are you kidding me, Tama-nee > Sonico.
When the retard in question can google the picture and get the answer faster it becomes more of a problem and not even just that. It makes him into a giant retard.
It's ok, you tried hard, that's all that matters
>Contacted Nippon-Yasan asking to cancel and refund a preorder I'd already paid for, used both the contact form in the order details and their customer service email
>No response for almost 3 weeks
They're not going to cancel it, are they. I had searched around before and it seemed like people on MFC had cancelled prepaid orders okay, and I don't see anything in their FAQ/Pre-Orders page about them not accepting cancellations. Is there anything I can do?
Now in gif version.
As expected from someone riding forced bandwagon shit.
Otaku will like anything in twintails and a skirt.
No, really, get out. Calling someone upset with spoonfeeding a tryhard, is in and of itself trying hard. Get out newfag.
hit pay later next time
Literally worse than disney cgi.
Are you able to file claim on PayPal or talk to your bank to get your money back?
You can also try sending them a message entirely in Japanese. I get fast replies with Japanese messages.
>helping retards is a bad thing
wow that's rude
Can you point to me who it hurts?
Pointing out people that are supposedly trying to fit in is just a hipster attempt at trying to make yourself stand out. Even worse.
No offense but it might attract more retards and thats bad.
>Are you able to file claim on PayPal or talk to your bank to get your money back?
Unfortunately I'm pretty sure I can't do anything with paypal, because it says the window for filing a claim is 45 days and it's past that.
>You can also try sending them a message entirely in Japanese. I get fast replies with Japanese messages.
Didn't think about that. I'll try it, thanks.
There's nothing that came out of wonfes that I want harder than this.
I need that chibi Cerberus to display next to her scale. I wonder when they will be up for pre-orders.
Contact them via facebook, as well. I've seen a few people here contact them through Facebook and get rapid response.
I suggest Facebook as well. Back in October I contacted them several times via direct e-mail and their contact form and never got a response. Contacted them through Facebook and they replied in like a day.
NY isn't capable of doing more than one thing at once and they spent all of today shipping my Marika figure.
So when's the next time Mikatan will update her blog?
Am I missing something here?
Ooh, I didn't even see these before. Thanks for the heads up.
>actually wanting to see Aho-tan update
Not much to blog about at the moment probably.
Mikatan is doing the Native blog. Unless >>101941530 doesn't know better. GSC should have changed the address.
Say, how much was shipping for you? I was expecting them to ask for more than their estimate considering the size of her box, but then I got the shipping notice yesterday.
Not a lot made it to the twitter, thankfully I had a friend who was there and he gave me the heads up. MFC has a page on them now. They are nendo petites
So i'm buying some old doujins off nagomi and 1 is cheaper but has 中古委託販売 on it, Will this affect my order?
No, it means that the doujin shop has selling rights from the artist and also the item is secondhand.
3.2k. The only other thing that I've gotten from them had really minimal packaging and I don't expect anything better for this one.
1790 RSAL for me. They packaged Horizon well, but I get the feeling they just crammed Marika into the smallest box possible. Oh well, I'll find out in about 3 weeks.
>order off Mandy four days ago
>no payment request sent
>don't want the order anymore
Will they notice and blacklist me, or can I get away with it?
I went EMS. Maybe I'll post some gore pics when it arrives later this week.
You can just tell them since they haven't contacted you yet. But you probably didn't get it anyway.
They'll probably cancel it anyway.
That dark elf is nice, same for the bikini one, but I never played/read the VN so hard to justify the purchase.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
Awesome, thanks for the fast reply anon.
People still play VNs and watch anime? Buying things because they are aesthetically pleasing is perfectly fine.
I'm watching something drop in price daily on Amazon JP. It has gone for 10% off retail price to about 65% off now. Should I buy it now or keep waiting for the price to drop and risk it? I know that once someone buys just a single copy of this item, the price will go back up to retail or at least double.
Go for it.
Buy it now. What is it?
Finally in a position to prepay for any future pre-orders. It's a shame AmiAmi doesn't offer the opinion, but BiJ works just as well.
Stay strong bro, stay strong.
Saber is an actual character. Miku is a hairstyle, and Sonico is a pair of tits.
Thanks, will do. I did some quick math and realized that it's just dropping by about 100 yen every 3-4 days now (Amazon JP price drops decrease in increment as the item cheapens), so waiting a few more days isn't worth lost savings.
It's a character scarf towel, nothing major, but it definitely wasn't worth the 2,100 yen retail price it commanded.
Sonico got a personality. What are you talking about?
Not that guy, but what is Gult? Did they misspell guilt by accident?
The ribbon looks too thick. It looks like a really huge and long limp french fry in her mouth.
Are there actually any pictures of the takane scale announced at wonfes, or does it not exist in prototype yet.
I've not seen a single picture in any wonfes thread.
You got some nerve.
Get your facts right, Sonitits is a literal rack for the headphones. The anime won me over though, the girl is so lovely and sweet.
Doesn't exist yet. Just announced that they are making her next
Can I ask NY to combine orders, or will they do it themselves?
>Can I ask NY
Yuria Misaki is now 1500 yen brand new on Amiami.
Megahouse really must have made way too many. She's a nice fig, a steal at that price. I got her when she was 2500
Damn, i dislike all the current takane figs so i really hope the new one is something special.
Same. I was considering Megahouse's latest one, it's not bad. But I'll wait now.
I'm mildly amazed that HLJ answered within their timeframe (they said it'd take about a week to know) & stocked something I asked if they might be willing to stock in the near future.
Who was it being made by anyway?
It will probably be the same as her BD cover.
Will you guys support Amico-chan?
I dont use tampons
I would only buy the Lilico one, and thats only after they make an Amico figma, so she could hold it.
I bought one.
No, only the most popular show of the season happens. I hope you like KanColle or SnK.
>Supporting the plastic-jew
Unfortunately I got nothing in February on Ami.
>Being angry when it clearly says no cancellations before you proceede to checkout
>Thinking that i've ever tried to cancel something
Jumping to conclusions now anon?
My figures have better tastes in waifus than her.
A bit more than twice as much as she was originally, yes.
That they don't re-issue or make a better figure or somesuch becomes a gamble in the long run. You can only make money if you sell these figures.
Otherwise, leaving them in the box likely just makes them yellow faster.
Just interested in some, handy to have them in a list just in case.
Why aren't their anime tampons?
>have nothing for Februsary
>want one of these anyway
What would the shipping be on just one? I've never bought anything so small.
A nendo is about 10 bucks. Can't imagine these being anymore than 2
Would you stick a miku in your vagina, /a/?
I'm only 12 years old, i don't even have my period yet you sick fuck.
No, she's a whore.

>being this new
Yes, yes, you're both very autistic, no need to have an autism dick waving competition to see who functions the least successfully.
Wasn't even me. Nice try.
Will any figma even be able to ride this thing, or will it's only use be partswapping and horserape?
I'm getting it either way
I believe it's meant to be compatible with a regular figma riding on it. I'm definitely getting figma Horse.
Finally a steed for my figma Lelouch. Maybe I'll even attempt to mod it into a unicorn.
Skyward Sword Link didn't ride a horse
Would he even fit with his tunic skirt? That's what I'm primarily worried about, anybody with a skirt or longcoat wouldn't be able to ride properly.
I know that, but we're not getting a giant bird figma anytime soon.
I have no idea if it would fit, your only option is to buy them and post the result.

On one hand I want a Kei figure, on the other hand I'm not... a swimsuit figure guy. I'd much rather have her in her pilot suit, or maybe even dressed as her mech.
I hope we get more figures.
KLK nendo! Will they do a nekkid Ryuko nendo?
I need to buy a phone so I can get one of these made for it.
Know of any good sites for that sort of thing? I'm getting a Jiayu G4 soon, since they're cheaper and better than Galaxy/iPhone. I should probably look into custom casings.
I just googled custom cases. I don't know how much luck you'll have with a phone like that though.
Would you a Mikan?
Stupid sexy imouto going up for pre-order tomorrow.
Waiting for Alter Yui
Not slutty enough.
All these figures(?) look great. If I had a good and stable income, I would totally get into this. Unfortunately I still live with my parents and I neither have a stable income nor a good one so my money goes mostly to video games. I am also wary of not revealing my powerlevel even though people very rarely enter my room.
Have fun with your overpriced underpowered shit, faggot.

As pure as the sole of her feet.
it's okay if you don't understand, you don't need to try justify your silly purchase to someone on the internet
Well the face certainly looks better, but I'm holding off.
So soon. At least it won't be coming out until next year.
That's the entire point.
3 weeks left until march. If nothing then its time for us Laurafags to mass sudoku
Oh I understand perfectly fine. I understand that you need to read up on how brand loyalties dictate the entire market.
for a second i thought that was Yui's decapitated head from the thumbnail
trying to be a hipster about it won't make your shitty near-knockoff any better
it's like deciding between a dell ultrasharp and a qnix q2710
sure in the short run you'll save some money with the shitter and cheaper monitor but why would you
She still doesn't have a good fig, the Orchid Seed had a shit face and worse seamlines
kek I bought the Orchid Seed Yui, but do you got source of Alter making Yui?
Meh, Nemesis is where it's at..
No I'm just very, very optimistic
When an anime hits it off big time, why do the figure companies decide to make figures off the MC or MC's love interest, when even the polls show that they're in the bottom? Wouldn't it be more logical to pander to the people with the actually decent characters or do the people in charge of the anime tell the companies that they can only make figures of MC x or love interest Y so their popularity boosts up?
I hope this is a cast-off
> when even the polls show that they're in the bottom
Whose polls? Also, they're presumably simply producing what sells.
Yes, the people who make the anime tell the merchandising companies what to produce (I believe) since much/most of their income comes from there.
My suspicion is that you're looking at western polls or something... in Japan, they vote and then again pay differently.
>Yes, the people who make the anime tell the merchandising companies what to produce
I'm pretty sure the manufacturing companies ask for permissions/rights if the want to make figs from characters in licensed series/franchises.
I don't believe they're told who to make, however they may be limited as to who they're allowed to make as per license agreement
>Browse AmiAmi for Takao stuff

>undercutting domestic markets is being a "hipster"
Is that so.
My Momo, slutterfly, and two little fuckers finally arrived.
My pre-orders list is now empty!
So when can we expect hotglue pics
what figure is that on the top right
Quite a few seem to directly order figures and merchandise from manufacturers, too.
Otherwise the merchandise wouldn't be available for some weeks to months after the series started, but it usually is there right from the start.
Those pants will likely be cast-off.
One of Raita's Mahou Shoujo, Suzuhara Misae.
I got Momo and Slutterfly in the same order, too.
My dick had never been so hard.
The bathtub is ugly and takes up too much space.
I'm living in the UK and I'm trying to buy the english edition of Welcome the the NHK LN. I can't find it anywhere and on places like Amazon or Ebay it's so expensive and no guarantee that the book is of decent quality. I've managed to find it on places like Yesasia for like $9 but it's in Japanese; is the english version really this scarce?
Also, I've tried all of the links on the buyfag page.
The shirt has a line on it, so I assume that will be cast-off too. Hopefully
It'd be nice to get some more decent Mari, or Misato and even Rei figures for once though.
The English version is oop, and scalpers got wind of it.
It's not like anyone would buy it at those prices, though.
Every now and then a scalper breaks down and sells it at a sane price.
I doubt it, Alter hasn't made a top cast-off since 2008 IIRC, and it was an eroge. Not that TLRU is that far off.
I tried flowers but it made her stand out way too much.
Waiting for MF bride Mikan since I already have Momo.
Where would be the best places to check, eBay?
How much are you willing to pay?
Amazon.ca has it, but for $60-70 per book. If they don't ship internationally, I'd be willing to help you out. Pretty sure they do, though.
I bought a half-sized dakimakura cover that the label says is 90cm long X 45cm wide. How do I go about finding a matching pillow at the local bedding store? I understand that a pillow is far more 3D than a flattened case and it's not like I can open up packaging to test fit in the store.
I can get it for around $40 from Amazon/Ebay, but even that seems to expensive and like I said the book quality isn't guaranteed. So anything under $40 really.
>/toy/ is for western stuff.
its for toys that don't break rule 2, ignorant fuck
>/toy is for western stuff
If you're going to samefag, make it a little less obvious.
If you're gonna say /toy/ is for western stuff please kill yourself before doing so ok?
If you read up a bit further, I did say "more" for western stuff. I was generalizing.
What does this have to do with /toy being for western stuff? Oh right, enjoy newfags who think the buyfag is for all buyfagging because of all the stigma around /toy/, seeing how no one likes it.
Holy shit, you are THIS mad.
>I did say "more" for western stuff. I was generalizing.
Because of rule 2 right?
>Holy shit, you are THIS mad.
If you'd notice the funny meme pic I posted it implys I am trying to troll because of reaction pic culture /a/ perpetuates that became part of other sites like facebook and crunchroll.
More or less. I wasn't actually saying it to abide by the rule specifically, I was just generalizing because I know that /toy/ is "more for western stuff" than /a/ is.
Wheres the pic?
>I was just generalizing because I know that /toy/ is "more for western stuff" than /a/ is.
Just because its like /a/ and /co/ put together don't make it more western, seeing how vinyl culture is shit and belongs on 9 ageg like statues of things we don't understand.
You know, I don't even go to /toy/. I'm sorry if I insulted your board, but /toy/ is more western oriented than /a/ is. That's what I'm saying. /a/ is Eastern oriented, while /toy/ is MORE western oriented. MORE. Keyword.
>but /toy/ is more western oriented than /a/
> I don't even go to /toy/
Ignorant. Lurk harder. /toy/ = /a/, /co/, /o/, /po/, all sorts of shit.
>I'm sorry if I insulted your board
no no anon, if you're gonna make wild accusations on what the board has without ever visiting it I'm assuming /a/ loves naruto seeing how I always see a pic of him in the catalog right?
No. You're being ignorant.
2 is 1 more than 1.
3 is one more than 2.
More is the keyword here. I'm not saying it's 100% western. Stop being illiterate.
>/a/ is Eastern oriented
>/toy/ is western
How do you know, did you ever go there?
>More is the keyword here
Oh anon, please tell me more on how you'll never visit it and assume its western because you've never been there and rule 2 excludes a large part of the 'culture.' I bet we never have wonfes threads, why even?
It's like $60-$70 CAD here, so it may not be worth looking at.
Fucking captcha is terrible when you're drunk
So you're saying its more so based on never visiting it?
I'd say, the figma generals, busou shinki, transformers, kaiju, plamo, and various other japanese toys makes /toy/ just as weaboo as /a/, seeing how 'knoe who needs a figma' is most common outside /toy/.
Fuck yeh, Takao ordered.
...On the other hand, I think I just impulse purchase her...
Desperately want to see her painted.
Don't worry Noodles, I did the same thing yesterday.
Is SAL Parcel on Ami the Registered or un-Registered?
Mine looks like it's pretty much nendos. There is some stuff I want at some point (when I can afford them or I find them at a decent price).
Registered and with customs if you are in EU. I'd recommend either splitting the order or changing over to EMS.
Thankfully I got mine on the first wave before it sold out. Gonna go get the paint and some thinner for my airbrush this weekend when I go to the mall to pick up my tacticool GM Sniper.
>Miku... has a good voice attached to her character
Damn it, I knew it, they made me wait for weeks because I ordered Shinobu book before they noticed all of Shinobu books are soldout. So because of one book, I have to wait 2+ weeks for my order to be shipped and the thing is it will never restock. But those fags ignore me until I cancelled one of ordered books (today), they updated my order and separated it without give me notification. The rest will be shipped tmr while they still want to jew my cast with Shinobu book with another shipment.
Let's go deeper into the abyss.
I like it, and because of you I just sorted out my childhood marble collection.
Is that tokitowa's cover artist? I feel really bad for them.
i dont even know who she is but im using one of her pictures as my desktop wallpaper
stupid saber being sexy making me buy you
>Not surrounding her in a moat of semen.
Any /a/nons know of a good display case for a single IS AGP Charlotte Dunois figure for me to put on top of my desk? Clear acrylic just to cover up dust, but not sure what sites to check for proper figure dimensions. Amazon seems to have only model car dimensions.
That feel when keep waking up at 3am to check for CCS nendo. I need it now.
Noodles that's gross.
Everything I get from AmiAmi recently seems to be getting caught by customs. Glad I preordered Olivia at NY now for their convenient undervaluing of orders. That would be some major customs charges...
I'm trying to exclusively use NY for scale orders now since I've found them pretty reliable and they've already saved me some tax cash.
Olivia any good?
She certainly looks that way so far. Can't wait for her to rule at the top of my Detolf come March.
The power range looks lonely.
>mfw my post-office sent back my CDjapan order
>without even giving me a notice telling me that it had arrived in the first place
I know Kotos looks a bit...demented but I kinda like it.
How long did you wait and what was it?
Weird. Usually amazon splits orders on its own accord when it notices a (re)stock is more than a month away.
Fuck you, that's obviously Batman.
The prototype looks amazing. Why do you even have to ask?
Manga, SAL, shipped on Dec 2.
Not sure what to do so I just cancelled all of my books.
Because I forgot to buy her clearly and I need to feel bad about not buying her.
You would usually contact your office if you waited two months...
SAL can take up to 12 weeks, and don't forget the holiday rush.
Hooray, it's finally here.
Well, if it takes longer than 3 weeks, something has usually gone wrong.
For example, I just received word that a honto order of mine had been returned to sender.
Heard nothing from the post office at any point in time. I hate my postman.
Akari is the best nendoroid, good job.
That's why I use tracking...
There's a figure I've been looking at and somebody's selling it on Yahoo for one yen.
Has it been up his ass or something, I don't understand why it's dirt cheap? I've seen it go for 8000 without a stand.
Tracking doesn't help in my country, and RSAL isn't an option anyway.
She seems to be popular. She was sold out the first time I ordered her so I had to redo the order from a different Mandarake store.
>Do you have a figure that you will never open the box for whichever reason?
My Lafiel is still in her blisterpack.
What happens in march?
How do you store your fig boxes? I first kept mine inside the Detolf. When that wasn't available I moved them to the top section of my wardrobe but now that is too much so I'm getting some plastic boxes to slide under my bed.
I think the box that pisses me off the most is the 1/10 Hobby Japan Madokami. It's just a white box because they simply wrapped a printed image around it. It's such a perfect square too but I need it in case I need to move her.
These damn boxes consume all.
I know it's a joke, I'm kidding too
300~400 yen USAL I'd imagine.
>Would you stick a miku in your vagina, /a/?
Never mind, I stopped being a faggot and read the guide.
Should i go to the 2 usual postoffices just to be sure? The other one arrived 2 weeks ago
I throw away blisters and store some of flattened boxes of prizes and revo/figma. They are cheap or scratched by me anyway.
>that seam on the shirt
I keep them in the larger boxes they were shipped in and keep those in the closet. I only have room for a few more boxes though, they take up so much space.
Now all we need is Beach King Archer.
Closet. It's a fucking never ending game of tetris. I have one 4 foot box that I've stored a bunch of them in also in there, but past that 80% of my closet space is figure boxes. There is damn near no room for any clothing, it all lives in the clean clothes hamper.
Exactly how hard are those ships to build i want to but atago's since she has nothing else
Excuse the shitty quality of the photo, it was taken with my phone.
They are all in the basement.
Under the bed, on top of book cases, in my.. sort-of attic (~1m high, have to remove a ceiling plate to access).
What does the text say?
Does Amiami offer Registered Airmail like BiJ? Or what kind of shipping is the Air Small Packet one? Until now I always used RSAL but that's no longer available for my country.
Air Small Packet is already Registered.
"Embarrassing but here's the radiography..."
On top of my wardrobe along with other boxes. Can't really fit any more up there tough
So it is basically the same as BiJ's Registered Airmail? I was just confused because of the name.
Want Nu to sit on my face
Airmail is basically a speedier RSAL.
Tongue ruins it.
But that healthy everything
It finally arrived.
zenbu pvc never ;_;
I want a figure of Nu in her cape. the giant sword can be included as well
>everyone makes mu figures
>still no nu
I dont understand
>We successfully received your payment!
Soon my love... Soon...
Any version of her is fine, as long as I get that ass
Is that Sumi guy here?
I'm the one you helped buy something yesterday.
Gimmi your paypal, so I can give you your money back.
If I don't catch you send me a mail.
Why does she have a stripped tail? The illustration and the original figure didn't have one. In any case her face doesn't look good.
On this occasion, how do I get into JPopsuki?
Do I have to do something or just beg until someone invites me?
Her horns are the wrong shape too.
Wait, is that the prize fig?
Does anyone here have eny experience with towels? Like the big ones. I wanna buy one so I can wipe myself clean after a shower with my anime characters
That too. I assume the sculptor had no other reference aside from the illustration.
Mah first BQ.
"A towel" can be "a handkerchief" or "little thin cloth with a picture" or even "a mini-curtain" wallpaperish something.
>Selling figures of a loser girl
It only took you 11 years, Japan.
> Like the big ones
Presumably. Can't see a company making something for a show so old.
Since Amiami won't let me cancel it, does anyone here want my Koto Shinobu preorder?
How come shipping prices include an additional commission per item?
I frequently order all kinds of stuff from all over the world, but the only price is usually for the package itself, which varies with weight and size.
So why does only Japan have that additional fee per additional item? For example, the way every single item bought from amazon costs 400 yen on top of the 1k yen shipping fee, no matter how small and light it is. I remember ordering at least once from a site with decent shipping rates, but I can't remember the name for the life of me.
I'm mainly interested in books, which is why that flat additional rate is retarded, books are incredinly light and the 400 yen fee pretty much doubles the cost of the item.
Is there a good store for importing books that charges fair shipping fees?
I'm putting in a rather large order from mandarake for doujins and other lewd paper. The guide mentions to get DHL shipping but Mandarake's page says they ship everything EMS?
>books are incredinly light and the 400 yen fee pretty much doubles the cost of the item.
You understand nothing. Be happy that amazon offers a flat rate.
>fair shipping fees
Amazon JP and HLJ are good if you pick 2kg tomes or complete mango sets (on Amazon JP). 1200 yen to ship over 8 manga volumes via magical DHL speed is pretty nice.
If you're going for single volumes and don't mind waiting a bit, CDJapan + 600 yen coupon abuse is a better way to go, since CDJapan charges 500 yen for USAL on single books, so the 600 yen coupons effectively give you free shipping and a bit of discount on the book itself.
There's also Honto and their boat mail if you feel too moralistic for CDJapan coupon abuse.
Why does CDJapan offer a 800 yen shipping fee with only 100 additional yen per item, then?
I don't even get the reason of the fee in the first place.
Package shipping prices go in brackets, you should get a higher shipping price only if you go over the limit of the next weight bracket. Why would I have to pay an additional 400 yen because I added a 400 yen book, or a 300 yen gadget? I'm not even talking big bulky horizon-level books here, I mean manga.
>600 yen coupon abuse
I didn't know about this. How does it work?
CDJapan doesn't do flat fees but semi-inflated shipping charges by weight.
>Why would I have to pay an additional 400 yen because I added a 400 yen book
Right, but on the other hand you can add a 2+kg metal bar and the shipping price will only be an additional 400.
You stack coupons for signing up + birth month. Exact details and how-to are in the Guide.
wow ok nevermind I just went to order page and it's right there.
>I'm mainly interested in books
Then use honto. Full choice range from EMS and courier over SAL to Surface.
Shipping is calculated based on weight. If the books you are interested in are actually light, then you'll save a lot.
If the books are more heavy than 1kg on average, then amazon is cheaper.
But remember amazon ships with DHL, which means 2 days to pretty much anywhere in the first world.
Considering that amazon's shipping fees are extremely fair.
Tip for a $0.99 custom mousepad.
Just checked that out.
After doing that, will it give me coupon codes I can use on my real account, or will it bind a 600 yen credit to my fake one?
Since people above keep mentioning CDJapan:
If you don't speak a word of Japanese, sure, go ahead.
But CDJapan has a limited selection and charges more than their actual shipping cost.
It's still only convenient if you single book or if you have time to make one new account for every books in your monthly order. It's an hassle.
M@STERPIECE, LWA mug and CLICK (Nisekoi OP).
Anyone got that Punpun watch bundled with last volume of punpun manga? It's shit, right?
Please don't fuck this up! I want a nice Kat figure so much!
feels like GSC forgot to add accessories, pretty disappointing.
I grab larger boxes used for printers from a buddy who works in IT. Then I play tetris and pack in all my empty figure boxes.
I used to use the shipping boxes that the figures came in, but they do not stack well and they waste a lot of space.
I don't collect beach queens either, but i wall throw money at that one.
Got these two recently
>charges more than their actual shipping cost.
Never have had that happen to me. Are you the special case?
Anyone feel big differences in figures size?
I have huge 1/8 while other 1/8 feel like 1/9.
How do manufacturers standardize their shit? Its a mess.
Your binder is in the picture.
You have to make one new account for each item you want.
They don't give coupon codes. They give coupons in the form of points directly tied to your account.
That's not my name though.
There's no standardization.
Some of Griffon's recent 1/8 scales have turned out to be the same size as Wave's 1/10 scale BQs.
Prize figures? How much those two set you back?
Well they are meant to be attributed to the size of the character by ratio right?
Not all characters are the same height, nor are they always in the same position. That or worst case scenario there is conflicting size data on a character that is "Canon"
Then who is Andrew?
And why do you have his binder?
It's not Andrew's binder. If anything Andrews is the last name, even then it's probably not his last name.
Got them both for like £60 altogether
It just says Andrews on it. I don't think it means anything. It used to be my sister's binder.
Hope you didn't overpay for this Furyu disaster
Welp if i compare some of my 1/8 just by looking the tallest would probably be 2meter tall while the smallest would be 1.3meters which both arent in RL supposed height.
Clean your wall
It's not too bad. I only bought it cause that's the only fig of Charlotte and she's my favourite character in Machine-Doll
I would have waited for something a bit higher quality. But that's just me. Looks like it's just beans for dinner from now on.
I've got money to spend anyways
>Anyone feel big differences in figures size?
>I have huge 1/8 while other 1/8 feel like 1/9.
Compare the 1/8 Strike Witch figures from AmiAmi Zero to the Alter/Koto/FuRyu ones.
Pic related, the figures on the second row were advertised as 1/8, but they don't even come close. They are closer to the Konami 1/10 or the sega prize figures in size.
Nice models, man.
Not mine, that was just a pic from MFC.
I've never RAH'ed before, but I'm tempted here.
I have two 1/10 figs made by Solid Theater.
The one who is supposed to be shorter looks more like twice as big than the other.
Not like that's anything new.
Queen's Blade Revoltechs for example.
Dwarves are apparently taller than humans.
Fuck I can't decide whether to buy Beach Ranko or figma Ranko.
I never bought a Beach Queens also.
How do I split an order on Amiami? Just email them and ask?
I just recently saw the show and seeing this is making me want to hunt for her.
If I were to preorder the hyperdimensional Neptunia Blu-Ray right now, would I still get the nendo? I looked around, but am I am I (among other sites) doesn't list it in their preorder bonuses. Am I just misunderstanding, or was it a really limited thing for the first XXXX preorders?
>winner is a bro-con whore.
*Hyperdimension... worthless autocorrect.
Don't get it off of amiami, doesn't come with the nendo.
mfc/Google is your friend
Thats a great collection man
Someone has a raging boner for SW I see. /a/k represent?
By ~200 yen.
Is it possible that because I refreshed a suruga-ya product page so much I made the price go up?
Probably not, actually. page views count but actual purchases matter more. Usually the "Getting more popular! Buy it now!" tag appears after someone buys the item and they restock it quickly.
I'd love to see proof of that.
Is it a good idea to start buyfagging if you are broke and unemployed?
It's not, it will take time and resources away from what you can spend on finding a stable job to pay for better and more plastic.
Same order contents with some Honto points used for rounding.
Did Honto split your order for cheaper shipping?
I'm not sure because I never saw it go out of stock and the price change occurred overnight. But I don't really know how their site works at all.
If this is the case, then I guess that'll teach me for being an autist.
Sometimes they have more than one copy of the same item, when you don't see a "# left in stock" notice on the listing page and you find that you're able to add multiples to your cart.
So someone bought one copy of the item you're looking at and Suruga-ya still has 1 or more left in stock and they recalculated the item to be worth more.
Very helpful to know, thanks.
Though I believe my item has said "quantity in stock: 1" all the times I've checked.
My Marseille Volks fig came today, but when I tried to j-j-jam it in! her into place, the thing that held her snapped. How fix?
I want to believe their system has been wonky for the past 8 hours or so. I bought items that were the very last ones in copy for sure and Suruga-ya has failed to mark them as sold. I'm getting worried that another buyer will pick up the same item(s) and I'll get a "Sorry we can't fulfill your order in full..." notice. It has happened before.
Superglue and pray to god that it holds. I had a bit of trouble with it too, but didn't ham hand it so much that anything snapped.
Look, there are 13 books in that order. Notice how 11 of those are shounen manga. Shounen manga usually weight between 100 and 150g per volume. Seinen manga weight around 150 to 200g per volume.
Adding that up we come to 2000ish g.
The 2380 yen shipping reflect that plus about 300+g of packaging material.
What CDJapan does is the following: They assume the worst case for every single volume.
A single manga may weight up to 250g, and that's the minimum weight they calculate the shipping for manga with, and that costs a lot when you order a lot.
If you know enough Japanese to browse honto, there is absolutely no reason to order books from CDJapan.
The situation is/may be different for CDs, figs and whatever else they sell. No idea.
Since you have the figure, how do you change the propellers? I don't want to fuck up and snap something again.
I haven't looked, but I'd imagine it would be the same as all the other SW figures I've got. Just take the nose of the striker unit off, and it should work.
That's the thing. It's not moving when I'm tugging on it, and I'm too afraid to use any more force after what just happened
There are rumours of that circulating on 2ch. Honestly, no idea.
Would be interesting to know what triggers the 人気上昇中 thing.
I run my watchlist script as rarely as possible.
See >>101972363 and >>101973823
Sorry if I sounded defensive on CDJapan's behalf. I was just trying to get more information on both CDJapan and Honto's shipping, as I have an order on both of them. I do prefer to use Honto because of their amazing packaging, but CDJapan had some stuff not available on Honto.
I also wondered about the claim you were making since CDJapan's shipping charges weren't too much higher compared to my Honto orders. I'm still waiting for my big Honto order to really see a difference though, but it's been over 2 weeks and still no invoice because of a backorder.
I hope it's just the angle, but her face looks a bit fat. The sculpt of the hair is exquisite though. I hope it holds up in the mass-produced copies.
Seems as though that's the way to do it. Just make sure you don't grip her in a weird place, as it's pretty difficult to get the tips off.
SO FUCKING PERFECT
Mine should be here tomorrow. She shall be the jewel of my display.
Do we have any shoot of what's below her skirt? she seems to be wearing spats, but I'm curious.
Mine isn't getting here until early next month...
I think some Japanese site reviewed her and included a lot of detailed shots.
Ships are a bit tough because of the small scale. Although this could be because my model making experience only comprises of a few 1/35 tamiya kits.
>Looking for adults goods
No wonder Japan's birthrate is declining.
Otherwise, anything else to know about night love story besides what's in the guide?
>Since it packed up to plain corrugated paper and I have indicated it as "Gift Toys for baby" in the invoice, contents are not known from outside. In addition, if there is a demand, the exterior package of goods will be torn up, and it is also possible to wrap goods in a cushioning material and to pack them up.
That engrish leaves me a bit puzzled. So, I can ask to get the box removed? But what the fuck is plain corrugated paper? Surely, they mean a plain box, not just kraft paper? I doubt kraft paper could make it all the way from Japan without being damaged in the process.
> not being scaled
They're never scaled
Frauliens are advertised as being 1/10.
That doesn't mean they are, but they're advertised as so.
I'll think I'll stop buying figs and spend the time unboxing the figs that I haven't opened yet.
i now work the graveyard shift at a gas station
which means i don't have to cancel my amiami orders
which means i can finally pay for that one giant order i've been stockpiling
well maybe after a couple months because it's minimum wage part time
I've stopped buying figures ever since Estelle. Surely, this is the epitome of buyfagging. So perfect.
Good luck saving.
I remember when I got a job and thought I'd have a shitload of money.
It literally vanishes
You still haven't posted any proof, fag.
Cool, thanks anon.
Wait until Alter shows Judith.
Can someone explain why all the hype around t his figure?
Just look at it and the answer will be clear.
Not him, but it looks plain as fuck and not interesting at all.
Yeah that's what I see as well. I don't see where all the interest is.
If she's the jewel to your display then your collection must be sad or you just love the character. Even the display seems lackluster
Maybe everyone just loves the character. I know if my waifu had something that good I'd be excited too. ;_;
What are you talking about? I honestly don't' see more than 4 people (including me) talking about it at the moment.
Sorta agree, but hey it has Alter detail/quality and gold on her dress. That counts right?
Well yeah at this moment but there were threads upon threads about her.
They'll do her brother to go along with her right?
Slow down anon, I have seen her appear on the last few threads, but she has never been anyway near Shimakaze hype to get " threads upon threads about her."
I don't think he is fujoshi material.
>That counts right?
Not really. Boring is boring, I don't buy a figure the brand.
i hate to be this guy. what is the source material for this?
some jap cartoon about brother and sister fucking
>tempted to by a Sphere CD just to see how they stack up to glorious Yukari Tamura releases for packaging
Google image search, plus one click gives you the answer in nip, which you can easy translate with (again) google.
thanks that really narrows it down.
Ill figure it out eventually so its cool if you dont want to tell me.
>There are people that don't know YNS browsing /a/ right now
Holy fuck now that's a dirty link
He asked for a source, so I'm giving him the method with which to find the source in the most obnoxious way possible.
You sure accomplished that.
Why are you so cute, Fear?
ok yeah I can read katakana too. thx
yeah not everyone plays vn
I think you upset your other autists more than you did me as I knew before you posted this.
Just get out.
It has a manga and anime adaptation as well.
I sure hope there is a s2, Fear needs more scales.
It doesn't matter. You've already proven you won't care about her character nor be able to afford her.
