Read the guide before asking questions.
How much do Nendoroids usually sell for nowadays?
Wanna see if getting Matoi Ryoko Nendoroid would be too costly.
Why don't you go....look up a few nendos and see their price?
I can' wait to see the Satsuki figure from Kill la Kill painted.
So when will I have enough money for this?
I thought the price would increase compared to those already listed on AmiAmi. Anyway, it's like $35 bucks at the most. Costly, but I wonder if I could get two to give one to a friend.
What do you guys think of the figure maker Phat Company? Do they usually have good quality material?
Do you think my waifu will ever get a figure that's not made by griffion? I'm not into garage kits or beach queens though I do have pic related,
Considering how much demand there is for her, I'm surprised she hasn't seen a third re-release like Dizzy.
I would totally pick her up if she did. Right now, she's just too expensive to be worth it.
Phat Company is pretty phat, yo.
Seriously though, who comes up with these names? Is "phat" an english slang word from the 90's? Why is Japan using that name?
One day man. She's in my list too, I was hoping she'd see a re-rerelease with the coming of Muramasa to the Vita but it wasn't meant to happen.
I got into this hobby way too late it seems.
> Is "phat" an english slang word from the 90's?
Are you seriously asking this?
Sorry, that was suppose to be, a rheutorical question but I slipped up to make the "Is" an "Isn't".
Managed to pick up the first volume of To Love Ru Darkness at Book Off for #3. The condition is very good too. It was also in a plastic wrap, so I thought that was a nice score.
>tharja most likely delayed to march
>no figures to buy now for march
Man, I don't know whether to look for something that comes out this month or save for next month.
There's this and Tsukihi. But I wouldn't rule out further delays.
That's a Miku though.
And an ugly one at that.
Sorry to hear about your shit taste, anon.
How can you be so bad at this
I'm sorry but the face looks awful, the hair looks awful and pose is absolutely terrible.
The only thing it has going for it is the detailing on the dress which is admittedly fairly impressive, but I'm not buying a figure for the dress alone.
The fact that you're unable to see this because "m-m-muh waifu" is just too bad.
>The fact that you're unable to see this because "m-m-muh waifu" is just too bad.
You blew it.
They still can announce the release date next week.
I only have Signum and Tharja left this month, as I don't believe OS will deliver Alleyne this month, also my March is pretty lightweight so far - only Shima nendo.
>Say something that's absolutely true
>You blew it
I'm just being honest, everyone does that shit. I bought Phat's Caster regardless of how crappy the paint job was because she's my goddamn waifu. Just saying "You blew it" without contributing anything else brands you as a major piece of shit, much like that Miku scale.
>I did something, therefore obviously everyone does it
The pose is fine, you're just angry because there are too many Miku figures. Go troll somewhere else
That will be my first Miku scale, and I've been at this for years. I don't even have a waifu. Throwing out random bullshit assumptions isn't being very contributory.
The only thing I would agree with you on is the face. The face looks like absolute garbage, but everything else looks very well done.
Not that same guy, but the pose is not that great, I find the Deep Sea Miku to be much, much better overall, better pose and better sculpt. That other Miku only has the details on the dress, which is indeed pretty good.
So which one would you buy?
How do you guys find out when or if your pre-order has announced a release date?
I have some things from the WonFes 2014 but I'm afraid it'll be months (like this fall) for them to be released.
I prefer the right one. I don't find the bikini top on the left to be appealing at all.
Cool that you don't like the pose, but I find that it'll fit very well with my other 7th Dragon 2020 figures.
So is she really getting released this month? Or is there a chance that she'll be delayed again
I wouldn't be surprised if she gets delayed just like Sheryl was.
How do you guys feel now that there is a video game buyfag thread being discussed on /v/ every other day?
I'm sure the people there aren't jackasses like here
Nobody cares, go back to /v/
I don't care if they have their own thread about videogames, they are in their right to have it, it's vidya on /v/.
did you not get your spoonfeeding dose?
I don't need to be spoon-fed on buyfagging, now yuri and bocu yes
What do they talk about? The video games they bought that week? That sounds stupid.
They buy figma/pak/revo garbage.
/v/'s average age is like 15; how much could they possible spend
But that belongs here with all the other garbage
No it belongs in the /toy/let.
Good to see the hobby is alive and well
Too bad nearly everything that is Japanese plastic is under the buyfag flag.
Cake is a lie
Good thing these threads reside on /a/.
Hey /fig/, how do you feel about /a/ and their "buyfag" threads?
You guys don't like figmas around here?
Yep so do most of the figma, revolts, dolls, cd's and whatever else under that.
Sometimes we don't, sometimes we do.
Neither because THAT FAAAAACE
The people who talk shit about them are just sad about their own sorry collection. Oddly enough they never post their collection either.
Does /a/ have a coherent opinion on anything?
some people like them, some people don't.
hiveminds are bad anon
I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it
They're trash and only worth buying if you're building a shrine.
Not buyfag material faggot
let's see your collection then.
Where's Kit-Kat-kun when you need him?
Post your collection faggot
This pic is pretty old now. I need to update it but I'm waiting to buy another cabinet.
>Not buyfag material
You're joking, right?
Shit tier, go to /v/ faggot
>hating on figmas and still buying nendos
We don't hate them, we're pointing out his hypocrisy
That's not hypocrisy.
It's the textbook definition
I don't hate nendos, just saying that if you own them you're not allowed to shit on figmas.
I don't like figma either. Nendos are chibi characters. I don't change poses or play with my nendoroid, so maybe I'm not using it right, but I still don't like figmas.
>using cups as risers
I don't like it.
No, hypocrisy would be only buying figma.
You can tell he lives in his grandma's basement
Ha how the fuck would that be hypocrisy you stupid git?
Remilia's base was replaced with a plasticware lid; underneath Tamaki is a bowl; underneath Pastel Ink is a box that a Cospa mug came in; underneath Yoshii is a metal box; underneath Shoujo S is a plastic tray that came with handgun ammo.
I improvised to fit everything in there.
It's no basement, but I will say my DETOLF is the most SFW display in my room.
Since you are blogging and attention whoring, I would like to see your dakimakura.
Please provide pictures in a timely manner.
Could you post some more photos?
That's the bootleg daki.
I do love attention whoring. Maybe I should link my MFC? That way you guys can give my page a bunch of views and send me friend requests! <3
If you do that we can actually see your shit collection
I don't give a shit about any of that, you attention whoring faggot.
Just show me the fucking dakimakura.
Give me a couple of mintues... I'm making a collage of it so that I can post it in every buyfag thread until you like it.
I want to say you're a stalker or you know me, but you were probably able to figure it out some other easy way.
You really have a thing for kokonoe. I got you mixed with the /v/ faggot who posted his collection. Sorry mate.
Speaking of Hotori...
Everything but the nendo was a lottery pack of 8
but would you really mind sharing how you did find that page?
I can't let you do that Dave.
Fuck, man. Nice one.
Is that the one with the dick?
So you don't know me in IRL life?
Because you've posted your dakis and collection in these threads a bunch of times before. It's not exactly hard to figure out who's who.
Plus, you can just pick any obscure figure out of someone's collection and go through the users who own it on MFC. I didn't do that though.
The becoming blog shit ... down
Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?
Nice detective skills you got there.
And nice collections. Too bad loli is a no-no here or I would have them all by now.
I already have Native's Red Wine version of this. How does Alphamax compare to the likes of Native?
I guess I'm the only one who thinks it's creepy this random guy just collects pictures of other anons collections for just such an occasion.
Yeah, that makes sense. I did say I like attention whoring.
I am mad jelly of your Sayori collection. Her Chocolat x Vanilla stuff is one of my favorites, but it almost never shows up on Mandarake. This plus the daki is all I was able to get off Mandarake and Toranoana. I'm guessing since you have all of the awesome extra goodies, you purchased that in person?
What kind of plastic bags you are using to protect those doujin?
Actually, no, I bought everything from Y!JP.
I don't have any of her dakis though, which is unfortunate.
It's my picture.
How creepy do you find it? My level of arousal depends on your answer.
I don't remember the brand, but I think they're silver size comic book bags that I got off amazon. They are a bit too big, though.
I love Chocolat
I approve of your taste in Sayori
guys where can I get a biribiri nendo online in japan?
I look through various sites but they all are out of stock.
So creepy that I triple locked the front door, have my gun loaded and even taped up my Webcam.
Mossberg 500 mariner with dragons tongue ammo. Also my dick if that counts.
I don't mind your dick. I'm not the M guy who was asking how creeped you were; I was curious because firearms is also one of my other expensive hobbies.
I think I'm done with preordering. Just, outright.
I find that if I preorder something, I'm more likely to lose interest in it as time goes on. Whereas with, for example Max Factory's Momo, when I saw that the final product was identical to the prototype, I rushed out and bought one.
Anyone else feel like this? I feel like I can't trust any prototype or image I see before it's actually out - I don't know for sure what I'm getting in the long run.
(of course, none of this applies to exclusives)
We /k/ now?
Eh, I think that really depends more on the maker. I only preorder figs I really want anyways, so it's not a big deal for me.
We've always been /ak/
There's fruit all over the bed
Red fruit on white sheets
I'm about to stain those sheets with her blood.
Okay, I read the guide, but found nothing about it really..
How hard would be for a first-timer to assemble one of those?
I really want some Muv Luv stuff, but I'm afraid to waste money and end up with an unrecognizable plastic mess
Fellow Strayans; Should I worry about customs giving me trouble for this? I've never ordered anything lewd before,
Buy some cheap ones to practice on.
You're obviously the one with shit generic taste.
Not bad, didn't see any sonicos so you obviously don't have absolute shit taste.
I'm going to buy the Shunya Yamashita Sonico to go with my other Shunya Yamashita figs.
Not at all. She's fully clothed so I doubt they'd even give it a second glance.
Too bad she was canceled.
Just building one is easy. Read the guide on toy for help.
Takes about 4-5 hours to assemble, make sure that you buy proper cutters and panel linings markers. /m/ has a pretty good guide for gunplas. Also, if you're going to buy Muv Luv kits, make sure that you get the non-scales (they're higher quality). Furthermore, if you're going to get the Takemi that you pictured, Koto is updating that model sometime this year.
Thanks for the info, the Takemi on the picture is up to pre-order, will launch only on July, should be this the new model?
>tfw there's only one figure I could ever want and it's too expensive ;_;
Where do you guys get $ for all this stuff?
From full time job? Someone should really add this to the guide.
I think "working gives you money" is something most people know though.
May I ask what kind of job? I doubt someone who's a construction site worker could afford this stuff.
Are they bitcoin related?
Are there any models of Chamber from Suisei no Garugantia, I can't seem to find any.
I'm a lawyer. I can blow a lot of money on this stuff.
just get the state/country to give you money
I see, that makes sense.
I live in a central european post communistic shithole, state steals all the money and they don't give shit to their citizens. I mean, if it was only the cost of figure, I'd manage somehow to earn the cash, but the shipping rate can sometimes be x2 the price of the item. You USA citizens are very lucky.
>central european post communistic shithole
Which country mate?
I want one too but I don't think it's likely. Perhaps with the new GJ Bu series (or is it just an OVA?) she might get picked up by a better company but it's unlikely.
Forever Griffon ;_;
I convert CHF, that gives decent $.
Not having any expensive hobbies but this (computer games are cheap...) helps, too.
I just got started on this kit. And although this is toy territory, do koto usually do water decals or dry transfer decals for their non scales?
Yes, it's the revised version.
So far, the decals with all my Mub-Rubs were waterslides.
I live in the same area, but somehow still manage to save some money for buyfag stuff. To be fair, I don't really have anything else to spend disposable income on.
Though it helps that our customs are too lazy to tax anything, at least I've never got hit before.
>tfw no one got me a homu cake for my birthday
Thank Ye. Have to say although koto's plastic is harder, I seem to be getting less noticeable nub marks.
Now i'll just need to search for a stand for this guy.
At least your country's currency is worth something, here 1 PLN is around 0.3 USD
Maybe I'll move to Switzerland in the future, because of that CERN and better living.
Where do you live? I'm also into video games, so far that's been what I spend most money on.
Well you better hurry, Switzerland is getting tired of foreigners and just voted to create quotas for allowing a certain # of foreigners to live in the country.
I must say, this is very wise thing to do. Just look what's going on in France and UK now, also Scandinavia. But enough of this offtopic, I'm leaving this thread and will just look for a job, maybe one day I'll post my collection here too.
Live long and prosper.
>Not giving her puffiness a second glance.
Poland isn't that bad, I work for a Polish company, you guys are pretty cool.
I live in Hungary, our currency is even worse, 1 HUF is worth 0.0044 USD.
At least buying chinese plastic makes me happy.
Too bad she doesn't look like Sonico at all.
Yeah she's fully clothed but I was more concerned about what looks like a little girl flashing pantsu.
Sorry for the late replies, by the way.
We aren't that much of a police state to just throw you in jail for panty shots.
It's just an OVA, yeah.
Her garage kits look good though so I guess I'm going to be practising my painting skills.
>tfw live in a shithole but we use the euro
It makes buyfaging so much easier
Oh good I was hoping I was just paranoid.
I cant resist the puff
I don't know who she is but I'm buying it
>I don't know who she is
You're just kidding, right?
there are MFC fags that don't know who she is either, it only stands that there'd be newfags that don't know her either.
Why would anyone make figure of this fat abomination?
Are the boobs squishy?
Because we live in a fatty fat world
Now I have Gary Joules stuck in my head
Are there any sites that list the weight of their products?
>better everything on the original
It's part of a ~secret plot~ to make shipping companies more money.
Sonico looks fine, she still has the hourglass figure but Pochaco or how is she called is horrible. I thought that figures should please your eyes, why would you buy a fatty fig? Fat people aren't beautiful.
>Tfw finally bit the bullet and pre-ordered her
I like the LE better, the semitransparent thighs look damn fine.
Not getting either anyway, I was hoping for a black bikini version and got CHERRY! instead
truely your wallet will be worse for wear after that huge purchase.
When a fig can be seen being presented at Wonfes does it mean it will be up for preorder soon?
I wish there would be an permanent solution to remove dust, just way too much and I don't like detofls at all, it's really painful when you're past the 40-50 figure line.
Nendos aren't usually my cup of tea, but there's something really endearing about Watamote that I can't resist.
Agree, although would buy again if OS released tan lines version.
Invest on a clean room
Even if it's painted and looks ready to go?
Yes, unless a specific date is mentioned on the info slip the preorders can always be delayed for months/years.
Why does a mascot get so many figs? Just because she's cute and sexy?
Yes, add the singles and vidya of her being a tremendous moeblob and you have a merchandise seller.
Ah, and Tsuji Santa , of course.
It is clean though, there are other ways for dust to accumulate.
Because of her personality.
you missed the point
Buy an air purifier/filter or something.
You'd probably be better off just putting that money towards a few more figs, though.
I see thank you.
Nasty ass sonico and your utterly shit taste.
>Forcing me to use Sal
Did they ever explain why the fuck they won't ship R-SAL to Germany and Scandinavia?
I fear for my figures.
Wait... that looks better than Amiami's photos. So it's a darker red?
Because your local postal services are jews
The poison of anime.
>won't ship R-SAL to Scandinavia
They will if you live in the best part.
I'm absolutely sure it's because R-SAL generally was slipping past the customs more than most and was hard to track from their POV.
i.e they want more jewmoney, they are jews, it's the jews, always blame the jews.
Sure they can say it's for updating infrastructure, but it's always about the money, always.
Sucks since SAL was faster than EMS for me and it went past the customs, which made it even faster. Now all I have left is EMS, DHL, Airmail and some weird Yu-packs or whatever, I don't even know.
I have a question for everyone who puts their shit on display, do you hide it if your parents come over? If not, what do they think about it?
Wouldn't it be considerably faster to put your shit on display, call your parents to come by and ask what do they think.
Do you really think most of the people in these threads give a crap what other people think about their hobbies, no one should, it's your hobby.
Basically what everybody else have said; The jews.
I'm also using U-Sal for the first time, I have no idea what to expect.
No, I live with my parents in fact, they stopped caring since forever ago since it's my money anyway.
I only get some comments from my mom and/or sisters when I get something that they like.
What do they tell you? "que chicas tan sexy"
The Kotobukiya kits are easy to follow, just get proper tools and don't forget to sand the nubs and panel line.
Which store should I search for +18 dvd cosplay shoots?
Not really, usually it's related to their clothes or poses, E.G. my sisters liked Death Master's clothes and my mother told me that Arthur was her favorite for the clothes, eyes and petite complexion.
She looks positively frightening.
There's no fucking way this is real, right? They canceled this. And it's fucking ebay.God dammit don't tease me like this, bootlegger.
Mai waifus transcend all dimensions
Please go away.
That wasn't cancelled. Koto's were.
Wow. I can't believe I didn't catch that they were totally different figures.
Does this mean there's still hope?
The items are shipping from Japan, so I'd say that ups their legitimacy factor by a good amount, if they were shipping from China I'd tell you they're bootlegs but... who knows really?
Well it seems to be the only place I can buy a figure, so I guess it's worth a shot.
Goodbye paycheck, you served me well.
Anyone here got the racing miku 2013 figma? The opened umbrella included in mine does not have the design similar to the picture, rather there's no design at all.
Most of it is in my room so no one really goes in there i only hide or prent my extended family from seeing them my mom just thinks they're odd
Excuse me, did you just say you were going to buy a couple prize-looking figures for +$100?
Please read the fucking guide. I'm seeing one of them for $8.
I didn't find them on any of the sites, but I am admittedly on my phone so I probably missed some shit. Wanna tell me where to find that?
In the guide.
I just broke the arm/shoulder peg on my Raptor-chan
So uh... I just saw this picture in the booru.
Does... does anyone know if this is something I can buy?
No you make it yourself
Good fucking luck.
They only made like 3. I've been trying to get one for years.
If only there was a guide in this here thread that could give you a large online database with all the information you need.
>more Yuru Yuri announced
ITS TIME. Please somebody make this happen.
>package is being held back for evaluation
You had one fucking job, EMS.
Anyway, how screwed am I?
Please leave and never come back
have a good life in jail anon
Might want to go watch 'Poor Little White Guy 3' for tips.
All these anons going "muh guide" every damn thread take up more fucking posts than if people would just answer the damn questions.
I'm not new to buyfagging, but i AM new to ordering products so hot they sell out in an hour or so. (Figma Shimakaze) So for Figma Kancolle Akagi that they showed off at wonfest a week or 2 ago, when does it go up for preorder? More specificly, where do i go to keep up with news on when X item is up for preorder in the future?
I doubt Akagi will sell out fast, if at all.
This place doesn't function like the place you migrated from. I suggest you return there.
If you actually read the damn guide, there would be no useless posts taking up space.
really? i pre-orderd at least after it went up
I didn't migrate from anywhere, shitter. I'm just saying that referring people to the guide isn't fucking working. You'll realize that after you've been here longer than two weeks.
*at least a week after pre-orders where up
I've got that once and they didn't even open it, just taxed my ass.
There's still a sliver of hope, of course I wasn't ordering anything jail worthy.
I'd say microwave your hard drive and cry in a corner.
You fucking monster!
The other day, /m/ had a thread on how to fix broken pegs on gunplas and Koto kits. So see if they can help you or go commit sudoku.
I'm not the one that was asking the questions.
It's easy to fix, I'm just too lazy to do it.
why you have a shigurui statue in-between your toehoes ?
it sold out instantly on amiami and hlj, (there was a restock too) so i had to use cd japan. i would just like to avoid this happening again, as hlj's prices are the cheapest. saving a couple bucks is still saving.
You would realize that it IS working if you have been here more than a couple of years, when these threads started.
Real seasoned oldfag over there.
Figma Shimakaze's first batch was up at amiami for a couple of days. I think you are mixing it with her nendo, that one did sold out instantly.
ah yea thats where i ordered mine, too.
>Those little Banpresto prize figs
>7 sin bullshit
Shit taste general.
Feels bad man. I broke the back part of the shoulder on my master grade unicorn ver ka.
Was the last part to put on as well.
I've got some borderline loli stuff, featuring Mirai from KnK and Koneko from DxD.
Microwaving drives it is then.
My first time ordering anything even remotely loli and they have to check it.
I'm a poorfag who's only buyfagged for a year and had buyer's regeret 3 times already, wasting $200 total. That's 4 months of buyfagging for me. How do I stop falling into this trap?
Stop thinking with your dick.
Because he's the MAN, and he keeps the toohoos under control.
Research your figs before making a buy next time and sell the ones you don't like
I don't think you're smart enough
>wow it's fucking nothing
Fap first, and if you still want it buy it.
If you're buying figures of stuff that you don't fap to and they happen to be shit just cut your losses.
Is it in sadpanda or scanned anywhere else?
>new snow miku already on manda
Stop being poor.
good luck with that anon.
>mfw gonna get scalped for a Phat! figure
la vie est drole
>la vie est drole
I fucking hate klk
>Think about what you want to purchase for a few days before deciding.
>Look at the shops and manufacturer list in the guide and make sure what you are buying isn't going to be shit tier.
>Find a picture of the actual product/read reviews if it's been released already.
>9k for a nendo
It finally happened
Words of a fool. I've always listened to my dick, and it has led me to good things.
Nothing unusual there, wonfes nendos go for 10kY + before the mass release.
well you have to wait for july for gsc to release it for 4.5k
He probably just has a stupid dick.
So how does the cast off works here? Don't those parts get damaged over time when you unwrap them?
There are two separate pieces, on bent down and the other covers their tits.
They painted best girl first, smart move.
Anyone else keeping up with the Sega witches line? Because it seems to me that they aren't going to complete the 504th like I had hoped. Looks like they're just going by anime appearance since they've moved on to doing S2 versions of 501st witches. I guess that means there's hope for a complete 502nd, but Jane, Dom, Angela, and Patty never. ;_;
But that's not Saori.
So for the Tharja fig do you think "late February" can mean like the last day of February?
You mean exactly like every other figure? OH GOD STOP THE PRESSED
Your new is showing, late * usually means the last week ( or even day) of the month, we are barely in mid Feb anyway.
Well alright then.
Can never has. ;_;
Fuck off newfag.
Where do you live?
How fucked are you?
...that's a garage kit, right?
Should I be worried if the fig I want is x% off? Does that just mean they're overstocked or could it indicate that the product is flawed?
Moderately fucked if they open the box.
My only hope is that they haven't, since it's a Sunday.
So my EMS was confirmed 10 days ago and it shipped 10 days ago. Says I should contact my post master if it isn't here within 7 days. Should I start panicking? Bought from AmiAmi.
>Paid around £1000 in customs taxes past year
If he's in the UK then he's probably fucked. Though I've never heard of anyone getting arrested for Loli here, it hasn't been on the news or anything.
Yes, higher discount means higher flaws, so always pay the highest price for highest quality.
Have you tried checking your tracking on both sides?
-Shinobu Anon after buying from NY
7 business days. Today is Sunday, and tomorrow is a holiday, so calm down.
>Tomorrow is a holiday
fucking shit i forgot
fuck president's day, worthless holiday
Also, the snow storm on the east coast might have delayed your package.
My last EMS took about 3 days, so it's not an issue on Amiami's end.
Do you guys think the Steins;Gate vn is worth if I've already seen the anine?
I don't even get the day off from school in a STATE university. I don't know why the government isn't working.
Vic doesn't give anything a second glace.
Only NSW does people in for loli.
Has anybody registered an account on Toranoana before? I'm trying to register in order to use BigInJapan's forwarding service (since it is the most money saving), but Toranoana refuses to accept my hairy barbaric name.
How to get around this since BigInJapan wants to see the same name registered with them as the one you're registered with on Toranoana?
Reputable stores won't intentionally sell flawed products.
If it's flawed, then that's the manufacturer's responsibility.
In other words, there's no point in worrying.
University of Texas, considering how 3/4s of the students/faculty are rednecks, I'm surprised they don't go 'MERICA at every possible opportunity.
Because the university is a business and it has its own schedule. It's not public K-12 education that completely runs on state funds.
Because the government a shit who likes to get payed holiday and raises whenever the fuck it wants while fucking over its citizens.
Fuck you, I like getting paid triple time (for working holidays)!
bro UT sucks dick UTSA is where its at
just kidding i dropped out for a better job
Don't forget that President's Day also celebrate's the birthday of the guy who freed the slaves.
There are only like, five holidays that my company pays people extra for working on. I doubt Presidents day is one of them.
I'll go with Kennedy
Either your company is jew or the other guy's company loves bleeding cash
Lincoln's birthday is/was on the 12th though.
I know because it's my birthday too.
Seeing as we live in the same hellhole, I might as well ask. Have you ever been taxed by using EMS? or gave you troubles for lewd figures?, I know the guide says "almost never" but still.
Both. My company is non for profit so I guess I'm lucky to get anything.
Once, and it was an XBox huge box with 4 statues. They just removed the kg of paper on top of the boxes and repacked it like it was nothing.
They are too busy taxing packages from China to care about the rest. and that's once in like 200 packages I've gotten via EMS.
Pic related, these were the 4 figures included.
The company that I work for makes good money (electricity company), most employees only get a paid day off; however, the ones that work 24/7 schedules get triple time.
Nice, so I assume importing lewd figs, not outright erotic, is fine too?
It shouldn't have a problem with your name; it's probably something else. Take a screenshot of the form.
Welp, now I know what I'll be pre-ordering later this year.
Even ero figures would go unnoticed most of the times. It's not like the customs declaration include the sexual pose and the measurements of the gaping vagina inside the box.
That's not how bras work.
>Thinking physics apply to clothes made by her shape shifting abilities
Yes, I want this.
Well, clearly says Kanji.
Try entering it in full-width alphabetic characters, or just enter katakana there as well.
Don't be an idiot, Jacob. Write that shit in Katakana.
>Your name (kanji) contains non-allowed characters
>You must fill out the pronunciation (kana) of your name
>Using full-width English letters for RISE
>Not filling out the pronunciation (kana) of your building name field
>Using your real birthday
>someone older than me on 4chan
That happens rarely these days.
Although I guess it's more likely in a buyfag thread.
Not really, apparently only 15% of us here are 25 or over.
Just to make sure: Is your last name really Jacob?
I'm one month older than him ;_;
I want to find this >:
>yfw you're one year away from wizardhood
He's not that old.
>cutoff at 30.
we have a few anons in their 40s
I wonder who's the oldest of us. Is there a 40+ ojisan lurking around?
i'd say 45 is probably the oldest any of us are
>Kneesocks without Scanty
What is wrong with you?
Read my issue guys. You'd know that I'm well aware of that.
I'll have to wait and see what BIJ says then.
That looks really disgusting
that's still a very broad range to cover
>Please note that your shipping name must be the same than the name of the account you use on our website (furigana are ok if needed).
Not when you consider the whole range is just 14 guys and that any other range, except for specifically pre-wizard-year, is larger than the whole lot of the range.
one part of my collection, collected over many years. then suddenly last year, I stopped collecting.
I have only Marseille on the way, which I pre ordered 2 years ago.
I don't know why but the urge to buy new stuff is just... gone
Look genius, BiJ isn't so retarded that they won't be able to recognize your name if you write it in Kana. Actually, I think they even tell you to write it in Kana if you can't use Romaji.
Katakana works. I have tried that before.
Also, full-width alphabetic characters should work as well.
where did you get your risers from?
I like y-
I got these two from ebay for about 11 bucks each. I know, prize figure but they're better than nothing since I'm a fan of the series. Still trying to find the rest of the collection but I'm happy with these.
>liking him for shit
>hating him for masterpiece
I found a kanata on yahoo jp auctions. It's at ¥300, let's see what happens.
Kanata is mai waifu, I can't go buyfaggin without getting something of her.
>where did you get your risers from?
I made them
some more stuff
I bought them from this shop: http://www.ebay.com/usr/coretcgcollectibles
I was very lucky they were listed. At the time I was searching for the show merch as I couldnt find them anywhere else. This was about 2 weeks ago btw. After my Kureha bid finished there was another one listed but it ended already. What other merch you have?
Are you a wizard?
Woto merch? PSP game, DVD lite box. Tried to find the publication with the woto Manga while I was in japan last week but couldn't find shit.
>Even questioning that
Wow what a retarded question. That's like asking if the pope is catholic.
50 years is a long time to lose your wizard powers.
If he`s 50, he was 15-20 during a time without anything interesting on the internet. What else could he do but have sex?
fap to plaboy?
He could've saved up money to go to Japan as the true bizarre sight of a gaijin in Japan and ordered fan-subbed anime on VHS via mail-in catalog.
And let's not forget how glorious anime cons were back then.
that's sweet. I just ordered the DVD complete box set mainly for the artbook. Do you think there will be any thing new for the series in the future? Season 2?
Admitting you're not a wizard past 30 while browsing 4chan is like saying you fucked and murdered a child.
You can't do it, even if you have to lie
That pic was taken before Scanty was released.
Thank you, this is actually an answer I was looking to hear.
Aside from the manga I think it's run its course. Unless Paradores/Aniplex suddenly decides they want to embrace a passion project, Woto is dead. It didn't do all that well in Japan, if I remember correctly. because nips have shit taste
>You'll never have a famous Japanese artist custom-draw a con booklet cover for you
You're right. Did the buyfag poll cover wizardry?
>Thank you, this is actually an answer I was looking to hear.
Your sheryl is an odd color. In fact that's the wrong color.
Thanks, this was the answer I was looking for.
The two in the middle are awful beautiful, namely Momohime. I think I have a thing for girls with swords/katanas
What are you talking about? You don't like the blue variant of the figure on the left or something?
(Not same anon, but I have the other, red one).
Those lips look awful.
Her whole face is pretty bad.
> I don't know why but the urge to buy new stuff is just... gone
That can obviously happen.
Just don't let it expand into no will to improve your life / house / whatever. That way lies extreme laziness and boredom, and so on.
Ha yeah I have the red one and prefer the red.
As far as I'm concerned, she still has quite a bit of style to her, anyways, but I entirely expect many buyfags not to like her at all.
EMS is shit, they're jews and opportunist bastards who will open your shit even if it's already overtaxed.
Go with SAL.
I don't think you understand how shit works anon.
>pay more for shipping and taxes than item is worth
>lololol still have to open and check and ruin ur stuff XD
Death to EMS.
While I also prefer the red one, it's just by a small margin.
The outfit is what got me to buy her.
Unless you are shipping books EMS won't be more than the item itself, and if you actually read the conversation they are talking specifically about Mexico.
Does EMS run the customs inspections themselves where you live?
EMS doesn't tax you, nor does EMS open your stuff. Your country's post office and customs do that.
beautiful taste anon. I want your dick.
I did ship books and they did fuck it up.
>Shipping books via ems
>Getting taxes n books
HAHAHA what sort of shithole do you live in?
I am loving that Miku man. Which one is it? I really want a miku but the only one I can find that I like is the megaphone one.
EMS isn't a company, it's a type of express mail that is usually handled by the national mail carrier or sometimes by a private company.
If you're getting taxes, that's the state. If you're getting handling fees, that's the mail carrier. Usually private ones have higher handling fees because they need to go through a lot more paperwork compared to the national carrier.
Personally if I receive mail through a private carrier, I just go to the airport and squat in the customs office until they do my paperwork for free.
>Final hours to preorder Armin's Figma
Still pondering if I should
He seems boring to me.
Though admittedly, in my case, t & a are pretty important factors in purchases.
EMS is thieves, go with DHL.
DHL is part of the EMS cooperative, you are fucking missing the point of what EMS is.
I bet you're one of those idiots who don't know that the tracking number you get through EMS can be used with your country's local post service.
EMS is lejun
I saw her bootleg reccently at a local comic store.
I think it was one like this
>Closest pickup location is an hour away by car
How about no
Yeah no, for the countries that have low probabilities of getting taxed using any private courier is guaranteed taxes.
It's not a company, it's just express air mail service offered by the usual national postal services.
Stuff sent with express services and insurance (which is EMS) but that aren't paper-based tends to be valuable, so many nation's customs like to systematically inspect EMS. [Never mind that the cost of the EMS service itself may be relevant to calculating taxes.]
It just going to feel wrong to not have it when I'm getting everyone else
How expensive will he be after release on mk I wonder it's not going to be rare for sure
Why did someone have to point out that his teeth look like a milk mustache?
>not using SAL
Well, fuck you. Why did they even give him teeth?
Ok, I laughed, thanks anon.
What do you mean most likely delayed
Tharja is soon
The adaptation was good, but the VN is much better
make sure you play it in japanese tho
What about if I play the new official translation since I can't read moon?
> How expensive will he be after release on mk I wonder it's not going to be rare for sure
In the near future, that's hard to guess.
But when the series has been over for a while, I'm pretty sure quite a few people will eventually want to sell their collection for cheap.
The bulk of them simply aren't the most conventionally decorative / best figures around.
Ohhhhh, I find this appealing. Who's making it?
I have no ideia, they would probably go full retard on the memes and some expressions that they use might lose some charm but i think it should be ok.
Ok, cool, Thanks!
Max Factory Xiao Mei. She has been out for a long while.
Koto also has a variant.
Loliball a shit.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH GOD YES
Ohhhhh yeaah. Nice, huh?
yeah you stop
>Insults others for having generic taste
Get out. Please. This is why other boards hate us.
Maybe you should go back to the other boards then?
Maybe you should go back to 1st grade since you like creeping on little kids so much?
Loli is life. You get out.
I see drawings anon. If you can't differentiate between reality and fiction, maybe you should leave.
I haven't stopped but I'm a far less than an avid buyer I've used to be.
I did. I'm a teacher.
How much is these glass cabbonets cost usually?
Or whats their name?
>being a normal fag
>caring about what other boards think when you're on the best one
>shitting the board with your shit existence
One word: parents.
I'm not the previous Anon, but here.
One word: Chloroform
That might have something to do with you "refining" your tastes on what you actually want to buy,you know when you start a collection you actually want to have lot of shit and so on.
I see some Muv Luv, but I only see Slutmika; you better fix that Mr.
I only have that problem with DHL Express, they don't use the local postal infrastructure.
Normal DHL is fine and simply leaves it as the next post branch, which is about 15m away from my home.
Also I assume they are fucking unbereable now I remember buyfag threads there being actually quite nice
Now /v/ is at it's lowest, all I can imagine is "weeb shit" spam and the same 2 guys spamming hotglue requests
What's with the hate? Sumika is love.
Probably. Nowadays I'm split buying items that go between "I really want that" and "that impossible to get wishlisted figure".
I swear I'm going to snatch the next GSC Kino for whatever price bellow 25k. One of my greatest regrets is not buying that one that AmiAmi sold for 18k last year.
which should i buy
GEE I WONDER
The one that isn't Griffonshit.
The internal conflict I'm currently having between arse and midriff aside, the fact one's by Griffon should answer that for you.
Remember that the one on the right is essentially two figures in one, too.
i just bought the death by embracing, I love it
What I am looking at here?
i could only get one, I decided to get the Snow Miku figma instead. The accessories won me over.
Besides, I already have a Mikasa figma and a Kurapika, so I can just make my own Armin
Retarded looking Ryuko from shit la shit
Doesn't apply when one choice is Griffon. Griffon is the only thing that can cancel out taco girl
thanks i don't plan on buying either of them now
And why should I care about what other boards think?
Fuck off idiot.
Dirty slut, responsible for killing everyone just cause she wants Takeru's D
Oh my god those fucking faces.
Captain Okita ;_;7
He's so beautiful. I want to get him and hotglue the shit out of him, then maybe he'll return the favor.
Should arrive this week. I still haven't seen the show.
It's the first male figure worth getting.
>I still haven't seen the show.
It's not worth getting if you haven't even seen teh source material. Correct yourself.
I've never imported anything before.
How can I import my Chinese cartoon statues while hiding my powerlevel from the nosy people at the front desk of my dorm who have asked me about every package I have received so far?
He's in route for me, I'm guessing he should arrive at the end of the week.
tell them it's weed and dildos. Who the fuck cares what someone orders?
grow some balls and tell them it's none of their business.
>grow some balls
This, is it really that hard to tell them off?
Stop being a faggot.
and most of times it's just people trying to make small talk out of their otherwise boring jobs. They're not trying to hassle you or judge you on your purchase. Be confident, social, and lay off on the paranoia.
>tell them it's weed and dildos. Who the fuck cares what someone orders?
Too many normals pretending to belong here, so they have to find some way to justify what they buy to other normals so they can fit in with them, too.
Buy everything preowned from amiami and you won't get any questions
So are we getting some scans next week?
Buy from NLS and enjoy "Used toy for baby".
I can't agree with them, that daki keychain is worth those 800yen.
"Normals" don't actually react badly to shit like that at all.
Today I was talking about smart phones and music players with a construction guy and he took a look at my shitty old ipod touch which I mostly just use as a calendar/organizer and it had animoo as both homescreen and wallpaper, didn't bat an eye.
The moment you stop caring about what people think about you is the moment you find yourself surrounded by people who actually like you for who you are.
People who judge you by what you buy generally don't like you in the first place.
Hell I've shown off my dolls and that hasn't gone over bad. I mean real dolls, not stuff like figmas which tend to get called dolls by normals.
Life counselling with anon.
And now you're blogging. Get out.
>Loli material is illegal, but I’ve not heard of any cases of people being done for it. Still, order at your own risk.
Do they discriminate against clothed loli or is it just lewd items?
>there will never be good-looking Kingdom Hearts merchandise
Shit's true: many people don't bat an eye at this stuff. Hell, I've often encountered the situation where a seemingly-normal friend was also hiding their power level, and it took a few months to realize we both liked/collected the same things.
I'm not even a britfag, but your stupidity offends me.
Wishability is time consuming.
So tell me norm/a/ls, why is KH popular?
I played the first game and honestly I was bored halfway through (did finish it), sure it had a disney license, but it was a mediocre game.
>not having MEMORY
I know such hard concepts can be hard to grasp for millennials, but it's there trust me.
I liked the combat. The story is convoluted as fuck and I never played anything past 2, though. The QTEs got a bit dumb, but I liked it when they launched the battles into different areas and you continued the fight in that new stage.
Good taste though.
Why don't you just try it an d tell us how it works out?
It came out like 12 years ago, most fans probably played it as children and have nostalgia for it now. I think the gameplay got better in the sequels too but I only played the first one so idk
pretty decent taste
Don't lie to him, it's pretty meh.
>1001 MFC users wish-listed Sakura Nendo #400.
>Current Nendoroid is #396.
It will be around 1,200 by the time they get to 400.
It's going to be a fucking bloodbath when this go up for preorder.
I just bought my first figure ever.
Did I do good?
No try mfc
Sorry to hear about your taste.
If you enjoy it then yes you did. I personally hate one piece and can't wait for it to be a past memory.
I still don't like the face, it looks nothing like her.
Scale and figma when?
>wishing that hag Psychic but not Lucier
I am disappoint anon
They'll probably do what they've been doing with more popular nendoroids and make second run, unless they decide to do full Jew and make it a GSC Shop exclusive.
The hat's color isnt even close to the one on the package
It seems generally low quality
Sure you didnt buy a bootleg?
We don't even know if it's the same scale.
I was going to add that too, but considering it's not by Shining Wizard or Max Factory I would assume the quality wouldn't be up to match Samurai.
Wasn't Miku v2 the 300th?
How the fuck did they almost pump out 100 nendos in that time frame.
The flash fucked it up, but there are all the small details like Chopper's fur, and the hat looks just like the package. Everything seems to be pretty good quality. Definitely doesn't feel cheap.
I don't think it's just the flash, his tongue also looks much flatter than on the sample photo
The hat also looks of different color...
Anybody get their Mikasa Ackerman figma yet?
Absolutely no one has. The ones who claim they did have bootlegs.
Why would I get something I didn't buy?
Is gsc having a free figma campaign or something?
What's the biggest amount of money you guys profited from selling figs on the after market?
One million dollah
150 USD For VN02 Miku, pure profit
That's really good for a profit.
I wonder when I can sell this Mikasa figure.
I got her on Monday, but since she was an impulse buy I'm going to sell her; furthermore, I don't have any figmas and I don't want to start now.
Back in the oven, Jude.
The color of the mouth is two tone in that picture to distinguish the tongue, but yours is one flat color. The hat also has a greenish tint compared to the color on the package. I hope it's not a bootleg.
$120 for a $15 Hetalia England teacup and saucer set. Fuckin' Fujoshi.
Do you mean by objective amount or percentage/ratio to original purchase price?
Biggest margin I've had was $213 made on a bunch of keychains that I bought for $19.
Biggest % profit was 1,837% on a handful of keychains originally purchased for $2.50 combined and sold for $46.
Should be soon since the release date is "Summer 2014", but of course he'll be delayed with many apologies.
Delayed? I don't believe you.
Why don't the manufacturers just honestly add 3-6 months to each figure? That way they can't disappoint us.
You can't predict delays far ahead of time, otherwise they wouldn't be called delays. It's a common occurrence in the industry anyways.
So if I'm a regular at amiami with around 10 paid orders from them, would they get pissed if I cancel an item?
The last cancellation I did was july last year I think, it would be the 2nd cancellation so far, hopefully the last.
I also have 2 more orders with them that I pretend to keep.
Because you don't expect delays. It's a bad business strategy to just extend the time frame for delays that may or may not happen.
Holy shit are fujoshi that easy to deceive? I think when Alter's Free figs release I'll scalp them for double the price.
Doesn't matter how long you've been with them and how many orders you've bought through them, they can and will ban your ass on the first cancellation if they feel like it.
fucking bitch right
You're doing it wrong.
Yes, it's easy to scalp fujoshi if you offer them the right goods. For bigger things like figures that will cost YOU $80 + shipping/fees right out the gate to get, it's going to be very tough to see even double back on it and you'll lose out more money than you think on PP fees and shipping and whatnot. Plus most fujoshi will go for the scalper doing $100-$120 versus $160, say.
>if they feel like it
Shit doesn't roll that way. If you just go around banning customers for first offenses on pre-orders you wouldn't have a good reputation for business.
They would do that if you go past deadlines, but for pre-orders they aren't like that
Do it, but wait until they're 'rare' or just hard for lazy desperate Fujoshi to get the usual non proxy way.
What are the most common issues for delaying the figures, bad quality or not enough stock to be ready for the release date?
>If you just go around banning customers for first offenses on pre-orders you wouldn't have a good reputation for business.
That's what you think, they do it all the time.
Combination of multiple factors
>Factory error, must redo some part
>Quality control, "this batch is too shitty for Alter's standards"
>Need to produce more supply to meet demand
>And very unlikely: need to extend preorder window to see if they'll get more orders in
>they do it all the time.
I'd believe if it's the first account you made and it's the first order and then asking to cancel it.
I doubt they wouldn't be lenient to regulars there, that's what capitalism is. You'd be retarded as a business to not treat good customers more lenient and bash bad/irresponsible customers
you realize it's not an American business, and that makes a huge amount of difference, right?
>that makes a huge amount of difference
For the fact that you can't act entitled, yeah.
But capitalism is capitalism in japan, west or wherever. You speak like they see a customer that spent thousands of dollars in their store and cancel his first item and the guy would just go "yeah fuck off" and ban his ass just because he felt like it.
There's a degree of leniency if you spend more money there, money is money regardless of where that business is from. The fact that it's market is not mainly overseas is that if you act like an irresposible faggot they will block your ass.
