Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
>Anally masturbating to TailRed
>tfw sleep in a hammock instead of a bed, so dakis are sort of out of the question
I've been doing the same since I saw tailred so it's not really weird.
Does /a/ have any opinions on Cu Poche figures?
>sleep in a hammock instead of a bed
Tarzan is that you?
Entirely pointless as long as they're just making the same mainstream characters that already have nendos.
Better than nendoroids
I wonder if Sweeden shithole bans anime figures like these ones >>115248686
like they did with DoA: Dimensions
any sweeden buyfag in here?
I can't find this dakimakura cover. The ones I've searched for are too lewd. I want to see what the other side looks like.
I hope the rest are announced
Does anyone actually own one?
I tend not to trust pictures on store sites
>Living in Sweden
That's what the "Users" section on MFC is for, mate.
Then just fucking look for pictures on MFC.
Anyone know how to tell when a threads 404'd without making an effort to check?
The way it looks to me is that everything keeps going as normal but it just looks like no one has posted. I only realize that the threads 404'd when the last post was 30 minutes ago.
The fuck is up with the laws in Sweden?
Figures are banned in sweden for being misogynistic rape totems.
get a wider hammock?

4chanx's icon tells you when the thread is locked.

it's a shithole
Haha, bet the guy who pointed that out hates himself now.
You're kidding, right? An 'X' appears on the favicon on the tab you have open as soon as it dies.
A credit card I preordered an item with on Kotobukiya was closed for fraud protection. Now it's time to pay and I received an email requesting payment via bank transfer. I've looked on their site and can only find a section to edit my shipping info. Is there absolutely no way to add a new credit card on their site?
If I cannot edit or manage a transfer, will the shop not allow me to purchase from them in the future?
Please help, buyfags.
>Sweden, Norway and Denmark
Iceland and Finland the last sane nordic countries.
Just really gay.
Can't contain hype for this gorgeous piece of ass.
What's your hypest pre-order?
E-mail (message) Kotobukiya and tell them your situation. If their customer service is any good, they should work out a solution with you.
Not for me. I guess it's fucking stupid Firefox not working with 4chanx.
I'm hyped for anything Alter puts out. Alter makes the best figures.
Appchan x lets you know that the thread has been closed. Maybe try that?
This item. It will be on the Movic website at some point.
So I mean, why buy something you can only look at, let's be honest, you'd rather rub off to the source in this case so it can't be for masturbation reasons, if you can't ever show it to someone else, and you'll have very strange explaining to do if they do see it?
Have you just given up on ending your hikkikomori ways/
Downgrade your firefox.
Preorders start 10/15, are you ready?
I don't have friends so I don't need to worry about who see's my figs.
When is she coming out?
I'm going to need to start saving now
November since i have 7 nendos ordered for that month. I'm expecting delays though.
But I don't want it.
there are several forks of 4chanX, I think one of them is unmaintained
I did read through their Q&A to find out as much as possible regarding cards, but sadly, my nip is too poor to ask for anything other than changing shipping.
Is there a text list of common questions to help those with little or no moon?
>asking when for an Alter
Ready for what? Larby is lame.
anyone else think of this?
You are aware you are at one of the most normalfag threads regarding that right? There are plenty of us who support our hobby with an actual job.
is this normal?
I ordered the Amazon figure from amiami and used SAL registered.
How do people feel about Feet Miku from Max Factory next year?
Run a magnet over your HDs now
Those toes are nightmare fuel
Not interested, just like Tell Your World Miku.
I think of figures as works of art, and I take time to admire them. If it's difficult for you to appreciate art, I can see why you might not understand why people collect them. And my friends (and parents) have seen my figures and don't consider them weird, so it's no big deal.
My nigga. But although I'm excited for Natsume, this is the preorder that I really want at the moment. I can't wait until Kageyama's prototype is shown.
SAL Registered requires signature confirmation at delivery. You were unable to sign for it, so it is being held at your local post office for you to pick up.
Just kidding, you're going to jail.
"Retention" means it's sitting at you local post office. Search with your tracking number at https://www.usps.com/ to get a better description.
You're posting in a thread containing people who have rooms like this.

The girl is cute, but how is the game?
Was nice knowing you all.
>What's your hypest pre-order?
Heavy Yamato and her heavy yamatos
Gameplay is boring and it constantly crashes to XMB, but the story and music are pretty good. Too bad it's broken as fuck or else I could still get some enjoyment out of it.
Pretty bad even if you're into weeb games.
Boring figure. Expensive too.
I wish my room was like this, I've only been going fora year so I only have like ~12 scales and a shelf of books.
>Kinmoza season two.
What's that tiv top right?
It's an illustration collection.
This. Mayhem's is officially abandoned now, and some of the others haven't been updated to reflect recent 4chan changes (such as temporarily archiving threads). The ones that have been updated on this issue are:
Not in the icon or title, so you can't see it unless you switch to the tab.
>What's your hypest pre-order?
All of them.
How are those books? Was thinking of getting the Hanayamata one since the art is pretty.
Fuck, just give us a regular Kate nendo already. This one sucks.
If you want to buy a boring figure for that much that's fine with me but I'm just letting you know it's boring.
Too bad you won't be able to use her faceplate with other nendos.
No it doesn't. But I would buy a Kate nendo too.
Scale coming soon
I see no reason not to.
Well if you think that the figure is boring, you're entitled to your own opinion.
None of my friends give a shit. They also don't give a shit that I have loli figures.
Nothing but very cute and colorful girls.
I want it since I'm not a Chieslut.
Downloaded the Spittie/Seaweed one. Too bad it doesn't linkify text.
We can only hope.
who am I kidding, at least 3 will be up next week
new Roboslut figures always
Naoto never ;_;
I don't see how collecting figures of animu characters is any different than collecting figures of western media characters. My aunt has a collection of The Wizard of Oz, wizard and dragon statues, and no one thinks she's weird.
Saber figures have slowed down this year anon. We might never see another one again.
And with a new anime series, the whole Type Moon franchise is losing popularity.
there are at least 3 neros being released, plus we got plenty of Arthurias, swimsuit ones, beach queens and even SDs like cupoches and nendos.
There are 26 saber figures released this year according to MFC, and that's just the prepainted ones
That's not slowing down at all.
And add 6 more for announced releases for 2015
I'm going to guess that >>115252920 and >>115253013 were sarcasm.

Sure thing buddy.
Your words say no, your image says yes.
It does. Is it not working for you?
I was being double sarcastic. As you can see, with a smug face you didn't understand the message being conveyed by my face.
About fucking time.
How long does hobbyheart usually take.
Been processing for 3 weeks
I assumed it was golden week delays but now I dunno
I want to get that figure, but she's sold out everywhere ;_;
But then what are Parforms?
I actually ordered Sakura Saber.
I think it looks nice. I'm considering ordering her too

If everyone was like you, humans would still be trying to figure out fire.
I am instantly interested in the top right by association. Anime when?
>10 Saber scales
>GSC just re-reprints UBW Rin and calls it a day
If humans were incapable of discovering things for themselves, we would still be trying to figure out fire.
Saw it on amiami yesterday....
>figure out life
Golden Week was back in May.
Actually, that would happen if everyone was like you. Instead of teaching them how to do it on their own you're just doing it for them, so at the end of the day when you're not there anymore they haven't figured out shit.
Instead of just dropping links tell him how to find it or explain how you did.
I want this. Also I don't find the second movie anywhere. Even raw.
No, we send kids to school to gain knowledge until they are old and self-sufficient enough that they can perform self-supervised learning from books and online sources.
So if you're an adult (and the site-rules require you to be one) you should be capable of acquiring the necessary knowledge on your own.
Of course there is a point where it's ok to ask others for help, but to reach that point you have to put some work into it first.
Anyone here ever bought Play-Asia Amazon.jp gift cards? I want to know if they're reliable since I want to order something from the .jp site but I don't have a credit card.
That's for faggots.
Why are albums and singles so expensive in Japan? I didn't want to spend hundreds just to get all the Love Live! albums.
oh, chinese golden week
I thought they were chinese based
inflexible demand i guess, same as BDs
Thanks. But it looks like even Amazon is cheaper than this.
Shit taste tax.
>I didn't want to
But you did, right? You're not a faggot, right?
Oh, didn't know they had a Golden Week too. Well, that was a week ago, so maybe they're just slow?
I don't know why I ordered her figma. Once I order a nice scale it's gonna look like such shit that I'll probably put the figma in my garbage disposal.
Because it's not even out on BD/DVD out yet, you dumbass. Not even a release date has been given.
>you're a faggot if you don't buy shitty albums and singles
>no credit/debit card
Are you underage?
Not yet. I've made too many expensive purchases lately so I'll have to wait a few weeks before I throw away more money carelessly.
Fuck right off normal shit.
At least you will. I went crazy and bought all the LE BD's, even went deep into looking for the first season's despite missing it, at least you're not going that far. I also have most of the singles.
Guess you still have to ask mommy every time to use her card
I could watch the first one without BD/DVD release.
Anything but scale is shit!
>having your own credit/debit card is now normalfag-tier
I'm so fucking confused right now.
I like looking at mai waifu.
yeah thats what I'm thinking
Or maybe the hong kong protests are messing them up
Guess thats what I get for ordering bootleg lol
How the fuck do you expect to buy a house or even a car if you have no fucking credit?
>if you can't ever show it to someone else
My sister loves looking at them when she comes to visit though
There are quite a few LE BDs I would've loved getting over the past few years, I love having box sets of the things I love most. They are far too expensive for me though. Feels bad.
Not him, but you can rent an apartment/house and buy a decent car without both. I'm more concerned about this guy only operating in cash. Does he live in a third world country? Even places on the Dark Continent are using cards these days.
what is with all the weirdos/weebs/neets in these threads lately?
Assuming that only children don't have one is normalfag-tier. Not everyone has or even needs one.
>How the fuck do you expect to buy a house or even a car if you have no fucking credit?
>everyone wants to buy a house!
>everyone wants to buy a car!
So you are too euphoric for shelter, gotcha.
So you're basically asking for a camrip?
Out of luck there, the 2nd movie did worse than the first. No one filmed it.
How do you expect to be able to function in society without one? Its not "normalfag" to get one, it just means that we're responsible and need to make a living. Having a card makes shopping and dealing with things much easier. If you left the basement every so often, you'd understand that too.
I buy and rent out houses for a living. It's so easy.
then the why do i have a camrip for it?
>Assuming that only children don't have one is normalfag-tier.
But even my younger sibling had one, at 13. These days it really is only children younger than that who don't have debit cards.
>Not everyone has or even needs one.
I think it's safe to say that if you're buying things online and you''re having difficulty doing so because you don't have a credit or debit card, you probably need one.
I've search it a lot. But thanks a lot, anon.
>How do you expect to be able to function in society without one?
Rent an apartment, bus to work. Personally I'm living with roommates, and I walk to work.
>Having a card makes shopping and dealing with things much easier.
"Functioning in society" has nothing to do with how easy it is for you.
>But even my younger sibling had one, at 13. These days it really is only children younger than that who don't have debit cards.
>it really is
>I think it's safe to say that if you're buying things online and you''re having difficulty doing so because you don't have a credit or debit card, you probably need one.
And I agree, but it's not an absolute necessity in the first place.
>package delivered to 2you4 a couple days ago
>haven't messaged me saying they got it yet
how long should I be waiting
To be honest, I kind of lied about not having a card but Play-Asia has gift cards that are cheaper than they are worth so I was curious if anyone has dealt with them on that front. Also it's pretty easy to buy things online without using the card with a Paypal linked to my bank.
The problem is, if you want to rent an apartment, they usually do a credit check to see if you'll be a good person to rent to. Without having those cards, you won't have credit. Making you a risk. Enjoy living with roommates for the rest of your life.
>Enjoy living with roommates for the rest of your life.
Well it's a good thing I have a credit card then.
Come on GSC, announce some release dates already!
>it's not an absolute necessity in the first place
For buyfagging, though, it might be, and that's the real issue here.
I actually don't have a credit card myself; people just ask for guarantors and pay stubs and are fine with that.
No one cares.
>For buyfagging, though, it might be, and that's the real issue here.
It's entirely possible to use paypal as a middleman for purchases, so while it's convenient, it's not necessary, per se.
I want to protect her smile.
More like release delays
i prefer using paypal for buyfagging over my credit card
Upload somewhere. Please?
Paypal usually works, unless you're making 18+ purchases on certain sites.
I just use debit.
It's convenient and good as a fallback, but I'm trying to stay away from it for larger purchases because their conversion rates are higher.
Well sure, but that's a convenience thing. You don't HAVE to buy 18+ materials, just as you don't HAVE to buy anything at all online.
>their conversion rates are higher
>tfw my bank has shittier rates than Paypal
I cannot contain my readiness.
But that's not #024
You guy are doing it wrong. Your bank's conversion rates are always cheaper than Paypal and Amazon's. So I always buy in the local currencies.
I just setup my paypal to hold no money, and just make it use my debit card. My bank will do the conversion afterwards.
But old and busted!
Depends on the bank and country. My bank (Chase) gives me a conversion rate pretty much on par with PayPal's and takes far longer to charge my account, so I rarely use PayPal for foreign transactions.
>old and busted
We're not talking about Aigis though
My Paypal account holds no money, and I only use it in conjunction with my debit card, yet it always goes by Paypal's conversion rates.
Anon, please. Why would you do that to yourself?
Depends on the bank's foreign transaction fee. My credit card has a 1% fee, so on a 10k order it would be about $1.50 cheaper to use that over PayPal. But with PayPal the money is taken right away, whereas the credit card might not get charged for several days, and in that time the exchange rate could go down.
You should be able to set it up so it uses your card's/bank's exchange rate.
Here's a recent transaction I charged to my card:
>SURUGAYA TOKYO 10/05 Yen 14.00 X 0.009250000 (EXCHG RTE) + 0.38 (EXCHG RTE ADJ)
>$1 = ~108 yen
Why is the yen suddenly doing worse? Or rather, why is USD getting better now?
What specific bank I have right now doesn't matter much since I don't have a job and I can afford everything with my savings and paying by debit card for now. Is there a bank that you'd recommend switching to though once I have a stable job?
>yet it always goes by Paypal's conversion rates.
Like I said, you're doing it wrong.
Right when you pay, there's an option to change it so paypal charges your card in yen.
Paypal is wording the alternative option as to make it sound more expensive their theirs, but in reality, they're just assholes exploiting you.
Good, good, Abe is doing it right
Been living under a cave?
>Your bank's conversion rates are always cheaper than Paypal and Amazon's.
Paypal rate: 104 yen/USD
Wells Fargo: 102 yen/USD
So it is only an for every individual transaction and you unable to set it as a constant standard?
Just wanting to clarify as I cannot see a setting indicating that I can set it permanently in my account settings. Googling also seemed to indicate that it can be a global account setting and I am evidently being blind.
I'm not sure if you can even trust those numbers.
I did a real practical testing sometimes ago, and paylpal would end up being the more expensive option, compared to what my bank ended up charging.
I've done my own experiments, and Paypal was generally less expensive for me.
Change it ones while during the purchase and it'll remember it you fool.
And if it ever changes back, you just change it back.
How the fuck can you NOT read everything on the paysite when you transfer something as important as money?
Disregard, I was being blind.
3% or so is insignificant for the relatively cheap purchases I make, but only recently have I felt like saving a dollar or two.
Paypal shills, please go. And stay go.
>MCDonalds three times in two days
MCD = Mastercard Debit
>They actually think Paypall isn't scamming them for their worth
Banks are evil, but they are at least regulated sufficiently in my country to not pull off scams like this. Paypal is evil that is unregulated.
Why the fuck did I find this so retardedly amusing?
Are there crotch shots of the castle girl?
That sure doesn't look like dollars.
>Paypal is exactly 2,57% more expensive
>suspiciously round number
Dat hidden paypal fee
Scammers gonna scam.
What bank is this?
Danish bank. They do their conversion according to our nationalbank (like the federal reserve)
Have you guys found any retail stores that have body pillows with the dimensions of 150cm x 50cm (or something close to that)? I've been going to every single Bed Bath and Beyond in my area with no luck. And I don't want to order online for the shipping rape.
>Alter makes the best figures.
Alter has bad character selection and boring poses.
Wouldn't your rates be different than that anon's bank, then?
>Dat hidden paypal fee
Except it's not hidden.
>bad character selection
Fuck you, the Vesperias are great. Actually, their Altair line in general is pretty good. And isn't that subjective? I don't like most of the characters that MF or GSC make, but that's just my preference, not bad selection.
Couldn't you just make your own pillow? Sewing together two pieces of fabric and stuffing it doesn't seem that difficult or expensive.
Mine charges 3%. I think Paypal has them beat.
I wasn't expecting laugh now.
The puffy volvo is magical, but the ass is flat.
I passed on it.
I guess I'm just lucky my government is raping my bank so hard up its ass, they charge me 0% for converting currency.
>And I don't want to order online for the shipping rape.
When I ordered a pillow with microbeads (which are incompressible) that was just 6€ shipping. Compressible stuff should be even cheaper if they vacuum-seal it.
I never did find one in store. I ended up just having to buy one online. Lowest I ever found was like 31 bucks on Ebay which I am using right now.
I'm too lazy for that and I already have the case for it. I just want something that will fit it.

Because you only post this once per thread.

I'm having troubles on using paypal, I haven't received the code bullshit yet.
You as well?
It asks me to log-in on my native language, instead of the usual quick paypage in english.
And then it just logs into my paypal account.
I can't make the purchase.

What's everyone's favourite type/brand/etc of microfiber cloth? I live in the middle of nowhere and can't find any in the local stores, so I'm planning on ordering some online. Just want to get the best value for money.

Doesn't matter anyway, it's working correctly now.
Hobbyheart is horrible. It takes 2 months or more to get your shit. I'd recommend amazon.jp or Animedakimurapillow for faster shipping.
Next time do your own fucking research before begging for help here, moron.
>begging for help
I was just talking to some other dude who had problem with paypal, and share that I too had some problems.
People posting their problems and expecting someone else to solve them is the reason we have a guide and google.
>expecting someone else to solve them
But I didn't.
What the hell can a bunch of Anons on the buyfag thread to do to help when paypal's website is choking up?
Shit. I feel asleep during the last thread.
Buyfags meetings are not so rare. I just met KingofMaids a weeks ago.
Debit cards do not offer the same amounts of consumer protection as credit cards. With a credit card you'll have a much easier time fighting lemons, fraud, chargebacks, or scams.
>Doesn't matter anyway, it's working correctly now.
You should tell us what was wrong with it. Someone's going to have the same problem in about a week, and we all know nothing's worse than going back through the archives and seeing some guy say "Oh, I solved it on my own" but then he doesn't say how. Did the problem just resolve itself?
Anon, you realize that for Google to work properly, someone has to encounter the problem and ask the question first. Sometimes you're the first person to ask Google a certain question, and that's where you turn to interacting with real human beings.
Y'know, people keep saying this, but I've never had an issue getting money refunded when I've had problems.
My wallet is ready. She'll probably drop in the aftermarket, though. Don't you hate it when you pay full price for a figure that plummets in price a few months later?
I keep hearing this complaint. Could you post some competitively dynamic poses?
You've had issues with your debit card?
If that happens, I'll be upset. 9720 yen + shipping isn't cheap. But then again, NGNL is more of a fringe series, so it doesn't have the fanbase to drive sales of this figure. It probably will hit the aftermarket somewhat cheaper, rather than more expensive.
>Did the problem just resolve itself?
Yup. This was the page I expected to see.
Around 1-2 hours ago, this didn't pop up. There was just some strange log-in page for paypal, and using it only logged me into my paypal overview.
But now it suddenly works as normal.
I've had someone steal money from me at an ATM. It was refunded within ten minutes of me calling my bank. They're also pretty on top of shutting down and reissuing cards when they suspect fraud.
Not him, but Alter's figures really do have boring poses. The girls are usually just standing there smiling.
A good pose doesn't have to be "dynamic" or an action shot or anything. Just something that shows a little emotion. Consider this Max Factory figure of Mea. Her face and pose are very suggestive, and consistent with her character and what she's wearing.
I paid 10k for Cerberus, then she binned. So then I bought another one
Thank you for posting that some time ago, just received that Hanayamata book.
>I've had someone steal money from me at an ATM.
If you live in America, you should get a concealed firearm permit and a gun. Next time, it might not just be your money. Niggers have been known to kill for fun.
>I paid 10k for Cerberus
I didn't even want her even at her current price.
>Alter's figures really do have boring poses. The girls are usually just standing there smiling.
It occurs to me that the figure you posted is a girl who is "just standing there smiling."
Fuck off. Expressing concern and giving advice to other buyf/a/gs is not /pol/-related.
I mean, I could heap praise on Estelle. She's got a wonderful expression of happiness on her face, and is posed mid-step, maybe after winning a battle.
Her left thigh seems so large compare to her body
I want to cum all over her
Why do people hate cerberous? I haven't played the game but I think her scale is gorgeous.
Sure, whatever you say.
It's those two fucking dogs.
1 word: Puppy hands
I'm not seeing a negative here.
This pose sucks. Loose grip on her weapon and why the fuck is she holding her shield like that? Looks like an idiot skipping along with toys.
The dog hands are seriously retarded. Even disregarding that, it's a bland and uninteresting sculpt, purchased exclusively by people who want to see her butt
Compare Mea's "smile" to the smile of any random Alter figure. Alter chooses neutral expressions, which tend to be genki/happy smiles that don't really convey much emotion besides "being genki," which is a cop out, in terms of the Japanese psyche. We don't really know what a "genki" person is thinking, at all. It's a facade used to hide various things, including lust, sadness, irritation, stress, and frustration. Instead of any of those, we just get "genki poster girl" which is boring. There are exceptions, but almost all Alter figures are like this.
By contrast, a figure like the MF Mea shows mischievous temptation, such a specific emotion as would never be seen on an Alter figure, for sheer lack of ability of the sculptors. The MF Mea is endearing, and when you look at her, she looks back at you, unlike an Alter figure, which just tend to look like 3D renditions of poster art.
Someone on 2ch hid them with cheerleader pon pons like with the cum cone for Elf.
What, did babby get her feelings hurt because I said "nigger"?
Fuck off back to tumblr, she-whale.
>By contrast, a figure like the MF Mea shows mischievous temptation
I think you're reading into things here. She doesn't look particularly nuanced.
>She'll probably drop in the aftermarket, though
Not going to happen. She's already sold out on amiami.
I think you're just autistic, and I mean that in the most objective, explanatory, and least pejorative way possible.
You're really determined to mad, aren't you? Talk about plastic asses or don't talk at all.
I'm sorry to tell you this... but it's the same dumb boring bishoujo shit.
You make a good point. Are Alter figures molds just 3D prints?
The proportion of their figures to the origin art is scary accurate.
>She's already sold out on amiami.
Uh... yeah. The preorder period ended, and the release date is this month. Nothing to see here. Just wait until she gets released. There will be plenty of leftovers that will not sell because people will know that the aftermarket ones will start showing up in the 7k range and lower in a couple months.
>Niggers have been known to kill for fun.
And white people don't do this?
>reading tiny, non-existent details that you're projecting onto a character
I think you might be the autistic one, dude. Maybe it's just because you like the character and the figure, but it's not nearly as "subtly emotional" as you think it is.
Most figures are inspired by 2D art, and it's not like Alter tends to always choose boring art either. They just tend to know how best to suck the life out of a character in the most boring way imaginable.
Someone needs to redo this with a clean opening.
Aren't there better boards to talk about this stuff? Let's try to avoid a descent into extreme shitposting, here.
Nice revisionist history there, m8. With whites, when there's a single deranged killer in the country, it makes the news because it's so rare. With hood niggers, it's just part of the normal routine. Google the "knockout game." Attempted murder is literally a game to them, and they're all doing it.
The thing with figs is that you don't know which series will create a cult following that with skyrocket the price of the fig.
Just look at Dragon 2020 samurai girl, she's $270 now.
There is only one Shiro figure from NGNL and the series has a very strong cult following. A lot of people are cosplaying it at cons.
No, really. Non-autists can actually look at human faces - real and anime - and instinctually notice emotions there, and instinctually infer what the character is thinking. It takes us all of 20 milliseconds to do. There is no reading of "tiny non-existent details" involved.
If no one cared, then they wouldn't reply to me, tumblrina.
Sorry. I'll talk about relevant shit instead.
Pic related; I didn't know Koto knew how to make ugly things.
But Alter's figs are top of the line in terms of quality. The amount of detail that goes into each single fig is enough to make GSC and it's umbrella jealous.
They are known to be the Delay Kings buts it's worth it.
>Go to Mandarake Akihabara
>All doujin is 200~400yen
Unable to resist.
>trying this hard to defend another generic bishoujo figure
Why didn't you pick a cooler figure? It would have been much easier.
People don't care about what you're saying: they only care about winning. People here are retarded like that. Including you. And me.
Mea's face falls into the erofigure face category. I think you just like erofigure-faces which is okay by me.
Dem sexy Sugitabot thighs.
Alter is indeed top of the line in terms of quality, attention to detail, and trueness to the original art. The changes they make to suck the life out of the characters are so subtle as to make you think that the original art must have been boring as well, but that's not always the case. Some of the original art they use is actually really interesting, and yet they still manage to fuck up the character's expression every single time.
This would go nicely in my Persona collection, but I'm not sure if I should wait for Naked Ver. Ques Q's Elizabeth was amazing, so I've got high hopes for their Labrys And #024.
That may be, but I still say that Alter figures tend to be boring and devoid of emotion.
>and yet they still manage to fuck up the character's expression every single time
Jersey Asuka's expression is great.
Didn't someone promise a Ledo figure at a WonFes some time ago? Or was that just a dream?
>tfw I worked at Bergsala a few years ago
I don't even read ecchi doujinshi often but I'd love to just blow like, two hundred bucks on a some, just because I think having a shoebox filled with them is really cool. It doesn't even matter really what's on the inside, as long as they have good looking covers, if someone was like "Hey, check out this huge stack of hentai" I would be like "That's amazing"
Boys I have a question
What is the best Patchouli figure money can buy?
Anyone with experience want to rec something?
If I go to Japan, I'm bringing two empty suitcases and putting all my clothes in my carry-ons. Holy shit, I'd go broke.
Seems like a dream you had.
Anyway, check the guide and MFC.
Well, shit. I think it was just the Volks Chara-gumin I was thinking of.
>I didn't know Koto knew how to make ugly things.
Every company has a dark side.
>implying women are smart enough to use the internet and get on 4chan
>implying that 4chan is not full of hot, milky 2D MILFs shitpositng to their heart's content while their children are at school
We're the schoolgirls shitposting int he computer labs.
That is obvious.
Two suitcases is not enough. Bring a friend who won't buy anything and put stuff into his suitcases.
I'm sorry but this is a board for girls age 13 and younger. You need to leave, newfag.
Is that Shirokuma-kun for me?
what are the two big boxes under ika and kuma?
>Bring a friend who won't buy anything
Impossible. Everyone I know would do the same thing as me. I suppose there's no choice for me but to keep my clothes in a backpack and devote the rolling carry-on to doujins, to ease up on the weight of the suitcases.
This looks much nicer than Alter's. It's still Ques, though, so I'm not expecting miracles
It's called packing a box and shipping the heavier stuff home.
The defeats the whole purpose of not paying for shipping, though. That's what the suitcases are there for in the first place.
The cyborgs get tons of releases, so you will have plenty of Labrys figs to chose from
Couldn't resist the price on Melty. SOFMAP was having a sale and she was under 5000 yen.
You're an idiot if you buy a $1000 plane ticket to Japan so you can avoid paying shipping from Mandarake.
You're operating on the assumption that you're visiting Japan only to buy figures. Nobody ever said that.
Their Elizabeth is absolutely fantastic. It's probably my best Persona figure.
No, I'm not operating under that assumption. You were, if "saving on shipping" at all factors into how you think of getting your merchandise home.
The yellowish skintone always put me off, wouldn't fit between my other 3 Liz's
Why spend more than necessary if you're already there and you have room in your suitcase? People can splurge in some areas and be cheap in others.
Because getting around Japan, assuming you're visiting more than one destination, involves a lot of walking. Because getting back to the airport in Narita involves even more walking, from your hotel to the station, around the stations, and through the airport. Because luggage that's full of books and bulky figure boxes is not fun to lug around. Because customs officials may not know the law regarding loli, if they see something that they find "offensive." Because the cost of shipping a box is minuscule, compared to the entire cost of the trip. Because it's also legally safer to get that stuff out of your possession while going through customs. Because it's easier in a lot of ways.
My Mea arrived yesterday and the hair was broken like many others. Was kinda disappointed since I was looking forward to getting her, but at least GSC have already sent me off a replacement.
what is this figure, other than pure heroin?
PVC, most likely.
pls anon, not like this i just want to buy it like the faggot i am
That brings back memories.
Now where's the figma?
I'm more interested in the GSC scale and whatever's going on with that Senketsu version
That problem seems to have happened to just as many people as not. It's pretty sad that so many of the figures were wasted by having that hair break.
The scale is only gonna show up on wonfes, probably not even painted. At least the figma has a prototype and could show up at any moment.
I don't know anon, but do you know Google?
Yeah, but the Figma is still a >figma
I want to buy this 1/4 hoe.
>International Shipping Media
Anyone have bad experience with this carrier?
Figma did a great job at being whatever it is, and they keep improving in designs.
that lives on yahoo lane?
Just found this set an old friend gifted me in high school.
Think it might make a good secret santa stuffer
Satsuki's figma looks fantastic.
I'm going to get both anyway, assuming GSC doesn't fuck up with her scale.
I'll give you $50 for it
Doesn't have the mini CD that came with it, though. Can't find it.
Hmmm. Maybe I>>115265531 should just use my mailforwarder instead.
Or that 25 dollar option.
>International Shipping Media
I get a little nervous when I see their website. I heard all sorts of horror stories from shipping with container ships.
AmiAmi is being fucking terrible is shifting delayed orders from monthly bundles. 3 months now i've had items delayed but still in the original month of which they were meant to be released.
DHR6000 is 160cm, so he'd probably want a DHR6001
>>Shipping out from GSC on the 23rd October 2014:
>>Good Smile Company - Nendoroid Satsuki Kiryuin
Thank you jesus
Will she fit SAL?
How would I go about cleaning Tharja's base? It's gotten really dusty looking.
>sleeping on a mattress on the floor
you're making us look bad
Bring cheap clothes and throw them away, freeing the former clothes space. Don't bring any clothes back except what you're wearing the last day.
Roller for clothes?
Is it flocked? You could try vacuuming it with one of those tiny nozzles like for vacuuming keyboards.
Good idea, I'll give that a try.
I cleaned mine with air spray then moved it inside detolf. I hate that base.
I am excited for this figure also, anon!
You know, fuzzy. Like Kotobukiya Horo's base.
Can't decide between Revolve Venera-sama or the dandiest face in space right here. But I'm excited for the Nendo too.
I am afraid that it is you who sucks.
First time buyfag here.
What do i do with this cardboard bit ? There is a square shape that's punched out, but i can't seem to find any examples of it online. Is it like an extra base or something ?
Also holy shit this stuff is addictive.
Shit choice for your first plastic butt.
I like your creativity with posing off the bat. Average figma but good stance anon.
You just stuff it back in the box in most cases.
Some of them can be used as backgrounds for macro photos though.
It's a background for photos, you don't really have to use it.
I hope they will do a Dwarf and Wizard so we can have the complete group.
Are those really worth it? It's $90 for the 6001. I'd guess shipping will fuck you in the ass too.
I used a brush and then clothes roller. It cleaned most of it but there were still little bits of dust left over. Probably should vacuum it to pick up the rest.
any sauce about that?
I'm really tempted to buy her, just for the novelty of having a gigantic 1/4.
Too bad the others figs in this series sucks. Bunny girls, leotards and swimsuits does nothing for me. And that sheep thing Charlotte has is just bleh.
The freezing ones look pretty great.
That does really looks good.
I feel as if there has been a huge boom in the quantities of 1/4 scales during 2013 and 2014.
Prior to 2011, they were almost never made. And the ones made were really ugly.
>mfw delaying my order since 3 months by adding keychains every now and then
Will amiko get tired of my shit eventually?
>We'll maybe have good 1/1 scales in 10 years
Having previously used a Shin Magical Sweet, and then upgrading to A&J, I think it's worth it, but there's a lot of personal preference involved.
I was super happy with the Magical Sweet for a year and didn't have any complaints beyond the cover tending to slip (rotate) around the body. Then I needed a different size for a new case and tried an A&J for the hell of it...and now I could never go back to ones designed like the Magical Sweet.
Some people swear by Print 80 (p80/Pillow Dream)'s custom-ordered stuff but that's more hassle than I'm willing to deal with.
But it's mostly freeing that's making all the 1/4 scales. I'd love to see gsc or alter make a large scale.
Hopefully gsc's "wonderful hobby selection" produces something other than tiny overpriced boats and ugly titans.
Can an A&J be used to replace all of my pillows with a waifu? Is there any maintenance for keeping the pillow itself clean (not the cover)?
The hole in the wallet just keeps getting bigger!
You need to wash that stuff, just like all your other bed stuff.
People who don't wash will have Mite invasions, it's said your pillow will grow +10% in weight every year if you don't wash. (those +10% are mites and mite shit)
So just washing and air drying + leaving it in the sunlight every 2-4 weeks?
Every 6 weeks is fine.
I just realized the earlier posts suggested the 6000 series, which is sort of special. I actually have 4000 series ones myself.
The 6000 series has a special anti-slip/grip coating designed to prevent the cover from slipping at all, so it feels like one solid piece once the cover is put on. It's an interesting concept but I've never tried one. The trade off is that it does make putting on and removing covers more of a production (since you can't slide them on or off; have to roll them).
This post >>115269703 is about the 4000 series and the older discontinued A&J Feel Smooth series.
I was checking out a site before for them and it seemed like the 6000 was more of a 'sidegrade' than an upgrade, but I'd probably go with the 6000 series unless I heard lots of complaints about it. Are there many English reviews of these pillows or is it all moon?
6000/6001 has the grip/non-slip surface, 4000/4001 doesn't. It just depends on which you want.
I can't say that the amount of slippage that occurs on normal pillows has ever bothered me but I've never actually tried a 6000 for comparison. (Cases are tight if on the right size pillow, so it's not like they're loose and slipping around or something, but if you rub hard enough then you can certainly feel the cover slip across the body in a localized area on a normal pillow body surface.)
Does Boku Girl have furigana?
Last Mandarake package arrived, now my Haga Yui and Takehito Harada collections are almost complete.
Alter Ignis begs to differ.
Jesus Christ, how do you put Gunvarrel into Frau's hands it just doesn't want to go in.
Wait what? You managed to delay payments for 3 months by adding keychains, and letting them caculate shipping over and over again?
Anyone else pick this beauty up?
>Are there many English reviews of these pillows
You are treading through territory few non-moonlanders have traveled.
I've delayed payment by nearly a month on amiami just by changing my address
Would pick up for the dress, I just don't like her face that much.
Yes. And I'm considering delaying till November
If I buy this, do I get both the Sword as well as the gun?
The price is hefty, but I can afford her.
Why are you even doing that? If I were them I'd give you a warning or ban your ass.
Yeah I know. That's why I was curious if there was any sort of place where there was a compilation of reviews or comments or some such.
Because I keep finding little things I want and it's not worth it to ship one cleaner
Looks like the paint job will only be basic, and I would still need to colour up the super details.
For three fucking months? Dude. Don't you want to see those scales and other shit you've been waiting months for as soon as possible?
Anyway, you're one lucky bastard. I wanted to add a keychain to one of my orders today, found out it's sold out. Those little things usually sell out quite fast.
I had the same problem but managed to sort of twist/angle him in there.
It's a garage kit. What did you expect?
I just realised her right arm comes out to let you put him in, even still it's a pain.
Well I'm happy this finally arrived
I'm hoping to when she releases.
I'm not keen on the face either. Don't think any of the faces on them look that good but the kimono's are too nice to pass for me.
Looks like she's about to murder you.
>Still no Phat Company- Kirigiri
Is this what despair feels like?
Indeed. I can't wait to have the whole set up and displayed.
Of course. My Homu just arrived today as well. I will eventually own them all.
Got mine a couple days ago, also very happy about it.
My Homu just shipped, how is she?
i still don't know where she's from (aside from sex kitten obviously)
They pretty boring.
Really nice. The detail and paintjob on her is beautiful I'm really happy. She looks great next to Madoka.
Anyone who ordered DD Miku already buying clothes? I just bought this alice set and I also have a few other outfits prepared. This will never end will it?
It ends when you have no money left and no way to earn more.
I'm just wondering what clothes I could buy as living in a shit poor country really stops you from buying all you want
I just hope my credit card can afford DD Miku
Anyone have any idea just how much DD Miku will cost in a few years time? I'm expecting her price to skyrocket
I think that the DDs will get better and better in quality, and it's Miku so at least as second one is sure to come.
Wasn't DD Miku a limited edition like DD Saber or something
The price will go up but not as much as lottery dolls. Even if they do another version or re-release like Saber Alter V2 it'll still be worth more in the aftermarket.
So far I just got the Senbonzakura and I'm waiting for the Mikuzukin set and hopefully they announce more Miku outfits soon.
So, I want to have a whole set of either the nendo or figma Madoka characters but I can't decide which to go for. I already have figma Homura and Mami and Nendo Homura. Which group would look better on display? The figmas or nendos? I already have two of the five figmas but I feel like the nendoroids may end up being better looking. But the figmas can be in a group pose... I just can't decide. I can't have both though.
Mikuzukin seems nice for a doll.
Make sure to post good pics.
I hope the mikuzukin outfit will look good. I didn't care for the doremifa rondo one.
Fuckin' finally, brobot gets something good.
Speaking of DDs anyone plan to get Ranka or Sheryl?
unlimited paper works?
Freeing's bunny girl series exists because of pic related.
Why can't kyon's sister ever sit like a normal person?
This is so far down my rankings, I never understand why people this it's hot in any way.
Yes and it brought with it a bunch of bandwagoning faggots. I hope you all have sufficient buyer's remorse by now.
I agree, but it's because classic Playboy.
I felt the same way until Sankarea...
but I still find out of context bunny stuff pretty boring. It's like low-tier sexualization.
if they don't wear a bunny outfit in the show, then why have a figure with a bunny outfit.
maybe she has hemorrhoids
>molded PVC fleece
The tail also looks like shit, but overall I think it looks fine.
That charlotte is disgusting though.
nice boat mate
Pre-ordered her. Just got Madoka in a few days ago. Now Im trying to track down the Homura from the set. Gona be bummed if I end up missing out on Homura because I wasnt collecting them when her preorder was up.

They're not that bad, and if you're not stupid you should always be able to get your money back.
Yes I need Femto too. Waiting to see him painted.

I still sometimes check them if I missed something that I sort of want.
It's always a stupid thing to do.
Figma for me. I have all the magical outfits and I just completed the school uniform set. As figma they can go head to head with the SHF Precure or Sailormoon if that amuses you too.
I personally don't see the appeal in "action" Nendos. I only pick up cute ones, so angsty, weapon clad Madoka Nendos aren't really my cup of tea.

Just paid for her. Now here's hoping that the used prices don't dump her into the 7000 yen range.
I finally got this after waiting a month on RSAL. They even made me go to my local PO, fuck.

I own three of them
The Tsukiko one is ok, looks better than the Nendo
The Sayaka one is fucking awesome, it looks fantastic
The Homura one is really really really disappointing
Hard to tell. Her thigh could be covering just the right lip.
Why hasn't her brother raped her already....
guys anymore sites for kimono except for http://kimonofromjapan.com ???
Sorry but I seriously you guys can buy into that mouth. It seriously doesn't work in 3D.
>not buying loli
are you gay son?
I want that mouth to kiss my dick
It looks fine, bro.
I like my women older, anon. I don't see the problem: that just means there's more loli for you.
seeing peoples doujinshi collections makes me jealous.
Maybe I should move to japan and join the yakuza, I'm sure they have uses for giant white men.
>doesn't like loli
>why buy something you can only look at
Because I like to look at it.
To be honest, I don't really like lewd doujins at all. I prefer story/romance/gag-based ones. I doubt customs would kick up too much of a fuss no matter what I bought.
Oh shit, I just remembered i have shit modeling skills when this bad boy arrived. Way to go, me.
>join the yakuza
they won't let you join them unless you're a native japanese.
even for low level thugs or bouncers in their clubs?
This thing is fucking amazing.
So is BK1 the cheapest place to ship manga magazines to the UK?

Yeah I decided to just go with the figmas cause action poses and I already have two of them so it'll be cheaper.
Customs does not give two squirts of piss unless you have some kind of produce in your luggage. They will tear through that shit for that apple if they see it on the scanner.

Just to be sure, you are writing in kanji or whatever the fuck they ask you to, right?
If yes, then switch to half-width characters.
Looks amazing, except her head seems a little flat in the sculpt. Like Shinji in this one.
Only accepting Japanese for both fields, is that how it should work? Thought one was moon, one was english
Why the fuck would a japanese site use roman characters?
