Why the hell was the last one deleted? It was on page 6
The shitposter came back.
It was archived
Archived from lack of activity.
Buyfag threads are kill, everyone left.
For 11,6K it's a pretty good deal.
Look at the bright side, at least James isn't posting, same with most tripfags.
Really tempting... might have to wait on it though as I don't know what else might be releasing at that time. Hoping she'll come back up for PO later on in the year.
It's a shitty camera putting on added light with the sun coming threw the window, damnit
Stop reposting that figure.
Then you post something
Any news on Nadeko Medusa? It's almost Jeeewwwwne
She's going to be delayed again isn't she.
Have any of you tried that?
Is the base going to be that marble?
Looks kind of neat, but it looks like it's screaming for something to go wrong. I'd try it with bootlegs or prize figures, maybe.
I don't want them to melt
If it's hot enough to melt figures, you need more cooling anyway.
I was actually going to ask if anyone could tell me how this guy's shelves are set up, I want to replicate them. Is it just planks of wood on top of the shelves?
Post old scales you want even though its quality isn't that good.
Yeah it looks like it. You can see the metal bars holding it up so I think the guy just cut some wood a bit smaller and stuck it in.
I hope painted Megumin looks better.
Stop posting bootlegs
Is it done by a shit company?
About that Ezra.... how is the quality of Orca? Thought it was shit.
Looks fine to me. What's the bad quality?
Could be better I guess but it's still a 6 years old figurine.
What case do you have there?
what is this?
He probably tossed a screw in every so often to keep them from sliding around, too.
Da fuck are you talking about?
Testing the waters.
The size isn't the issue, the issue is both figs look like shit.
Shame, I'd buy her if that didn't look so ridiculous
Is it actually a bootleg? I did think it looked a lot worse than the promo pictures, but that's not unheard of
It looks noticeably worse than pictures taken by people on MFC of their figure, differences that aren't caused by a camera.
It's not, I had the same scale, I suppose some user told him that since he has posted about that scale so many times.
It's actually a pretty nice figurine I was surprised by how heavy she is.
I like the show, but it doesn't make for very inspiring figures.
I thought it was just a generally poor quality figure until I saw the photos on MFC and saw how nice the detail actually is, which is what makes me think it's a bootleg.
It's a shitty camera, my pictures were kinda like that too( I don't have the scale anymore).
Magical camera that makes legitimate figures look like bootlegs
cooler master 690 II
The 1/12 miku and Luka swimsuit figs got delayed, again.
At this rate I'll be surprised if any of my April/may orders actually ship.
Fucking Thank You
Has anyone actually pre ordered this, aside from Kotori I don't see much love for the Alter set here
I got burd and Rin, but I pre-ordered Nozomi. I'm only waiting on Eli and Umi now.
Nico and Maki are fine too.
I meant Nozomi and Maki.
When are shipping dates usually announced for pre-orders? Like if I have something to be released in June, will it usually be announced before June or during June? What's the average time between announcement and actual release?
Sorry, I meant announcement of shipping date (like 2 or 3 weeks notice?)
I'm going to be buying all of them and am going back and forth on selling the rest of my collection. There's so much western shit that's appealing to me right now.
There's so much western shit that's appealing to me right now.
Wh...What? We're in a pretty dark age for western stuff right now. Even scales based on comics tend to coated in gloss instead of painted depending on what the material is actually supposed to be.
I mean Hot Toys and Lego. Things very different from scaled figures.
I only have Kotori so far, but I'm also getting Nozomi and maybe Umi depending on the sculpt.
Where can I get 160 x 50cm daki pillow from in the US? I already checked the guide and royal pillow doesn't have one.
Looks pretty different to
I have her pre-ordered and the other two. Will probably get the whole set.
I'm also buying a lot of lego at the moment. It's definitely impacting on my regular buyfagging with both money and space constraints.
I've preordered her mostly because I'm a Nicofag.
i love marie
I love anime.
I'm still deciding on whether I want it or not. I would buy the Maki one but I dont like the costume. Hoping that that Eli/Honoka are good ones. Kotori was my favorite buy of 2015 easily though
Did I do good Sup Forums?
I stand corrected but...
They both took a plea bargain, stupidly. It was never tried in court. He basically, like most people, heard a huge sentence and decided not to challenge it. It's actually pretty hard to get charged with obscenity because it's so vague but he panicked.
To not derail into a bigger issue plea bargains are right up there with "not getting a lawyer" and "talking to the police" as the biggest mistakes to make for any intersection with law enforcement.
i want gudako keychains already
Why is this thread so dead? Is there not much news at the moment?
Post preorders, there must be something nice upcomming
lol I haven't seen that image in yeas user , what was it called again?Also is this figure worth it?
May is almost over! When!?
My slippery slope has started with this. I probably made a big mistake with how much I spent on it, but I didn't want to let it go.
Got the Z/A mugen liger, the FuRyu Jeanne prize fig, and Spider Gwen all lined up for summer
Z/A mugen liger
It has been one fucking decade since the last Zoids anime.
What makes you think I'm an American or Jap?
paying in funny money
How about you pay in real money,pay with USD.
That aside, why are you on this website if you aren't an American or Jap?
Yeah they never stopped making Zoids kits and they've done well enough to make this a thing
So with proxies, do you just tell them what you want to buy and then they get it for you before you pay?
Because I ordered something and they didn't ask for an address or payment information.
Because it's still a generally nice place to talk about things
Who did you use?
I haven't used them in forever but from what I remember first they'll see that they can actually buy what you want, then send you a payment request, and then get it.
Read their FAQ nigger. All you need to know is there. It's actually important since they have restrictions and time limits.
Virginity protection level: 9001
Dang, that's a nice anzu
If you just started, you learn how to control yourself with time. I started in late 2014 where I got 3 figs, then in 2015 I got 5, and this year I bought one so far.
If I intend to open my figures for display anyway, should I even care about the condition of the box? Seems like I stand to save a lot of money buying from Mandarake if I'm not being anal about it.
I approve. I haven't seen very many pictures of this Miho Cu-Poche. Fix this.
Price will be lower if you have to resell something in the future.
It only affects the resale value, and that's only if the box is really damaged. The only ones who care about mint box condition are the japs, and you won't be selling it to them.
many people here care about boxes too not just "the japs"
But here, we really only care about if the box is included or not. Japs frequently drop 1k or more for even slight box damage. Can't tell you how many bargain bin shinkis I've got with slight box dents.
I said mint condition. I doubt you care about your box having some scratches or slightly damaged corners. Japs are on a whole new level.
Anzu is one of my favorite scales. She is really small and has nice toes. This is how she is currently displayed.
Aren't you the guy with the disgusting room?
Love Live! Sale at HLJ
Get going lads
Is it sad that these threads seem to be dying? Is it thanks to this new mod?
YEN is rising
people are growing out of anime
people are branching out to western stuff
Nothing to talk about
Anime is dead confirmed.
My room is clean except for where I scorched the carpet.
S ype lub
your angle is not flattering and there are artifacts up the ass.
Alright, time to get my Jew on, I guess. But that leads into the second part, I've seen some stuff on Manda that described the damage as "large" or "severely damaged". Still worth?
get b/b items if you want to save moeny that much.
People just need to get more money so they buy more.
Better than rampant shitposting. In the weeks leading up to the last wonfes this place was awful
Just trying to gauge how frugal I should go before I'm liable to bite myself in the ass. These figures I'm after cost a lot no matter where I go and are kind of hard to find, like Native's Chie.
That is some nice detail for the size. Good job user
Don't be stupid. She has dark blue panties/thong. If she didn't Amiko would have her listed in the R-18 section.
Same as every other GSC release, they'll have it up on the release schedule soon.
Don't they have pictures when the damage is that significant? Japs usually exaggerate about the level of damaged, so if it's just the box I think it's fine.
Honestly if it really is just the box I don't care about the level of damage as long as it isn't completely destroyed.
Most of what I'm ordering atm seems to be nendos. I don't know if it's because I'm runnimg out of space and thinking about scale purchases more carefully, or if there's just a bit of a drought at the moment. I am looking forward to GSC's Sakura.
Thanks, I don't buy a lot so I didn't know that they had a schedule on their website.
I think Manda sometimes uses what seems like stock images or something. On Chie, there's an unopened one with two pics of the box, slightly scuffed and bent. Then there's the "opened unused/box severely damaged" one for 2k less but using the same cover picture as the first, and no others.
Seems kinda sketchy and I'm fighting with my inner Jew over it. Like, these prices are already a pretty significant markdown from prices elsewhere so should I even be this much of a fag about 2k?
People in these threads have lives believe it or not.
Nope, less and less people are visiting Sup Forums so it's a natural consequence.
Why did I ever buy all this shit? I have all these blu rays of shows I'll never watch again. What was I thinking? Now what do I do?
That macaron in Sonico's tits ruins that fig for me
looks great otherwise
Azone dolls are shit, trust.
o: I was tricked then.
I like it well enough.
It's a good thing that nice looking Sonicos are few and far between, or else my wallet would sink.
I'm not surprised to hear that, but considering the drought on Hetalia merch for what, six? years now, I'll take what I can get
What's the appeal of Hetalia? I always took it to be fujobait.
Especially since the only people I've ever heard mention it were fujos who wouldn't shut up about it at university.
Nakigitsune nendo when?
I'm surprised people still care about it. It's been so many years.
There are some people who ordered Huke Alter over formal dress
I haven't gotten anything new since March and most of the scales I am interested in still haven't passed the unpainted prototype stage. At least Yuu is being released in time for my birthday. I'm also looking forward to putting the sword shota with my Senbonzakura nendos.
I only watched Bake but that snake scale looks really nice, she was tempting for a bit.
How do you know this?
Is ok if I ordered both.
That IS troubling, but that's also not the case here.
Huke I had to ponder over for a week or two before putting in that pre-order.
Formal dress was a minute-one sealed deal.
As you'll notice, both are present in the image.
Both is fine, I'm saying there are some that chose only Huke
which isn't bad either since Huke's is probably going to be over 30K
I enjoy it because it's funny and I like history.
And it's cute boys doing cute things, and yeah, a bit of fujobait..
I'm glad the cancerous fanbase has mostly died though.
Huke's looks better honestly. Don't know why everyone went batshit crazy for the Saber Alter dress version. Something looks really off about it
I'm not a fan of
that fucking fox, but I hope he gets one for your sake user.
Now, an Iwatooshi nendo would be stellar
EMS : 4,980 JPY
SAL Parcel : 4,655 JPY
Buy more and fill the empty void that is your life.
Or sell em to weebs and use the money to do something fun.
I only watched it because my fujo friend wouldn't shut up about it. I got bored and dropped it pretty quick. The only appeal I see in would be shipping characters and maybe an amusing joke once in a while but neither of those make being bored 98% of the time worth it.
Our witness has come.
The oracles suggest a prophecy of terrible truth. We have truly glimpsed a future we cannot change, decreed by gods, old and blasphemed as they may be, we are, here and now, witness to their power.
Huke's looks better honestly
This shit pisses me off. I just want the wallscroll for some of these, but I can only get it if I buy the big pack of their character goods.
Kafuru's is pretty dope.
Nice taste anons, Cu-poches need more love here
I'm still a bit sad that Fluffy is a limited version
What do you think about my new $200 waifu?
Looking pretty good
Dammit, forgot pic
What are you excited for?
Huke's really catches the conceptualization of Saber Alter character. It looks more regal than generic dress Saber. Dosen't help the face looks terrible on the dress one
I don't understand.
What didn't you understand? I really like the way Huke conceptualizes Saber Alter's traits. It seems more regal than generic Saber. Doesn't help the facial structure seems horrible on the dress's
Threadly Reminder Nana paint when?
I don't understand how the face is bad. Can you illustrate it?
Huke seems to do poorly when drawing the face. For example, the way he structures the facial parts.
Didn't the guy mean the dress one's face looks bad?
When Huke builds the face, it looks like the face is bad.
But it wasn't about Huke's. What the fuck is even happening now?
Huke is good at drawing conceptual faces, but not when building them. That's why I like the way Huke conceptualizes Saber Alter's traits, like her conceptual face. Much better than the dress one.
This is getting to be nonsense. Let's just stop.
I'll buy this if there's a 1:1 version of this.
That's one disappointing butt.
I realized that I don't own very much headwear.
It's a canon butt, though.
That comb is just terrible.
Mine's still sitting at the Jap mail facility. Why is waiting for SAL so hard? It's not like I needed this right away or anything.
I'm getting the full set, and possibly whatever other swimsuit figures alter puts out. Already have Maki and Eli.
I hope yours doesn't come damaged like mine and other customers.
I can only hope it was a large package
SAL Parcel != SAL Small Packet
SAL Parcel is almost always about the same as EMS, sometimes more expensive.
SAL Parcel is way cheaper than EMS (to South America)
how is embrace japan's quality?
Everything except the skin on this figure has that cheap plastic toy look.
Get ready for SUMMER
She's finally colored. Can't wait to have her next to my Astaroth.
anyone ordered her?
Yes. Pubic hair is far too uncommon and there's no way I can resist an oda non milf.
Posting to keep the thread on life support
BAD BAD BAD
After they got me on that Chun Li never again
There was a pink version?
Looks like 120 yen is that magic number to get people interested.
If you check figure site website statistics, growth in visitors has been relatively stagnant since the yen got stronger. Like take /animefigures for example. From Oct to Jan there was a 2x growth rate. And from Jan to now, that growth rate is 1/10th, over double the amount of time, so more like 1/20th what it was. Japanese websites aren't nearly that bad, but they have been dropping.
Hopefully making anime figures is actually a profitable venture. Because if it's not we might get fucked pretty hard here pretty soon.
no kawaii uguu eyes
no lobe hair
what magic is this?
Syaro and Chinatsu came the other day.
but can you still pay the rent?
Thanks friend !
I think she turned out pretty good. There's just some dust in the paint, the most noticeable one you can see in her hair in this picture. Otherwise, it's not really noticeable. The paint on her wrist frills could probably be better too. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the figure.
Here's Chinatsu with some tea for you all.
Gorakubu is now complete. Seitokai
I bought Rin's
That's a nice slut.
AmiAmi preorder bonus.
Really cute user, love the design and packaging
AYANO NENDOROID WHEN?
Can they all hold a teacup in their hand?
They don't have hand parts made for holding teacups. Except maybe Yui if you ordered her from GSC (I didn't), but her cup is probably permanently attached to the hand.
Order from amiami for the first time
SAL package takes 6 days
Did I just get lucky or what? I expected it to take two weeks. I'm in the US
thumbs up and subscribed
Pretty normal here. Only had one SAL package take the whole two weeks. Based Burgerland
ONE MILLION YEN
Thanks for the pic. Feel kinda lacking somehow. Shading maybe.
Now we wait for
Seems like my poster have the same taste
Unless that pic is decieving, that bottom is just way too slutty for her.
What's the average shipping time to the US for a new figure? I have to wait about 2 months and the lack of pics after a week is unnerving. I wanna see Shiro all around
I have the answer.
nvm PMd you the fix, thxs
Funny how much a few extra dollars caused by a change in the exchange rates affects people's collecting. Are figure collectors really that close to the line of going broke these changes affect then? I mean it's hardly a cheap hobby to begin with.
Considering Americans literally kill themselves once a year for a bit of discounts, I'm not surprised
Does buying stuff from Japan (in Osaka) instead of ordering online has any benefits beside the fact that you don't have to pay shipping fee?
could be painted as pantyhose
you can get a qt japanese cashier to take your money
Well now. Didn't know MF announced Erica getting a figma.
Time to grab Sakamoto and wait for more witches.
remember not to touch her directly though because your bacteria will kill her
Is that caster base the default one? Because all the listings that I see have a clear one that doesn't look nearly as good.
you're a bacterium!
the rent aint paying itself
Was there just 2 weeks ago and brought home 4 scales and 4 figma. Sofmap saurus building is now complete it's inventory is dinosaur as fuck. Also another place to check out for it's low prices is on the 2nd floor above super potato. Remember to bring your non-jp passport for the 8% tax free discount.
Was thinking of getting this from e2046 as my first garage kit (since there's only 17 parts) Thoughts on the figure and the company?
Simmer down Abdul, the Elevens don't even like other asians, much less anyone else.
Are you airbrushing skills on-point?
Or did you grab a pre-painted one?
Either way, be careful.
Yes. It's the default
Nope. I'm really a newbie to GKs so I thought this might be both simple and nice enough to assemble just by acrylic paints. Or am I missing out something here?
I can't find the GKs anywhere and it wasn't stated as pre-painted but I've heard that E2046's casts have shit quality.
My Sharo isn't here yet, she looks okay though, not as good as the promo shots but still at least she got a fig.
Leonasenshi is a bitter cunt.
E2046 and GK model recasts are both on the same level.
The kit looks good for a beginner, low part count, eye decals, and no skin-to-skin joints.
Make sure you wear a mask when sanding resin, and thin your paints.
thanks man, will check it out
and god damn Sofmap's online catalog looks like a mess
Any idea about the name of the low prices place you mentioned about?
This seems to be the only super potato I found in Osaka via Google maps and the above shop looks like a place for woman's makeover
Not that super potato. There's another super potato along weeb road with a 1/1 solid snake statue.
When is the next wonfes?
why does everywhere in japan look like such a scummy shithole
Here's a picture. The red circle is the entrance and you can use the elevator or stairs to go to the store on 2nd flr. Do be a chap and ask them the name of the store.
What is "FedEx" shipping? I'm seeing it along with the usual options.
Things will be delivered by gundam instead of zaku.
Two more Matsus are painted.
Juicy fucking when?
I'm glad they didn't fuck up Ichi's hair this time.
With who? Unless it's Amiami adding FedEX now, the fuck is wrong with you?
I might get one.
From what I've looked up it doesn't seem any different from the rest.
You're seriously asking what FedEX is? Do you not know what UPS is either then?
They could've made Ichi's hair messier.
is this truly the end of the buyfag threads?
seems each week we get less and less active
These questions might keep it alive.
I know what UPS is, but I live in the US. So unless Canada uses FedEx or some other carrier service, I really have no idea what it is. Or if it's a european international carrier that delivers to the US > to our postal service > to my house.
was browsing bootlegs on taobao for $20 scales
came across this and realize how comfortable girl clothing looks
9/10 would wear
It is sadly.
Post buyfag memories, favorite posters/posts, general stories, confessions.
Let's remember the time when we fell in love..
I know what they are. Just got sorta confused cause I'm not used to seeing it just listed like that.
Keep it alive by asking stupid questions that can easily be Googled.
I just googled "is this the end for buyfag threads?" and none answered my question. Please post a source, thank you!
I think it's finals week for a lot of people in the US. Definitely in NY.
I honestly can't see how you're confused. They're no different than DHL.
Are you retarded?
I kinda regret impulse preordering the first two.
Decide to buy a rare figurine I've always wanted
See it for thirty euro somewhere
Delivery was super fast, two days
Just checked my bank account
Checked order confirmation
It was wasn't 30,0 like I thought I saw
It was 300,-
I just paid 300 for a fucking figurine while my rent's due friday and my pay comes in next week thursday
I just paid 300 euro for a figurine was 130 when it was released last year
Mind you Dollarfags, that's around 400+ dollars
What killed buyfag?
More expensive exchange rates scare away buyers?
Was it just a fad?
Are people being forced to abandon their hobbies by their significant others?
It's not dead. Most of the shitposters are just busy with exams or hopefully died.
what the hell is wrong with you?
I think it would constantly slip on shoulders.
I almost forgot to pay for chinatsu. That could have been bad. Deadline was today.
Anyone here own this Asmodeus?
Is she worth her price?
like her, got her in a sale tough
She looks amazing and she's big as fuck too. Just go get her user.
Alright, I'm bored of people constantly posting that the threads of dying so it's time for a little excitement. I'm going to take a photograph or two.
Red, blue or purple?
I'm going to choose someone other than Chino this time, so feel free to choose the red one again.
Have kotori and run.
Pre ordered the rest of set.
Look at that smug
Her head looks bad from different angles but I'm still not sure if I should go for her.
Seriously, do the Japanese eat this kind of weird shit up or something? Who actually buys these?
I know for sure I wouldn't want to have this fucked-up looking pimp around my waifu's figures...
They know who to market to.
Yes on both counts.
Just, shop around a bit before over-committing to a price you could do better on. That said, she's not exactly easy to find anymore.
Eh, let's go with purple.
Are you planning on setting up some crazy lighting?
Did the light cause it to catch fire (tissue paper)? I worry about this happening to me...
Are these threads normally this slow?
I know for sure I wouldn't want to have this fucked-up looking pimp around my waifu's figures...
I bet there are a lot of degenerates who think the exact opposite
I'm definitely less interested in it somehow. Maybe a lot of people feel the same. I think I'm in that group of people who this was probably a fad for. I also don't have a lot of money >_> which probably made me like all of this less
preordered my nadeko though, in like January
I hope these threads aren't kill forever. I don't want people to leave Sup Forums for that shithole called 8Gag
I put a lot more effort into this one than the last, I think it turned out alright.
They're obviously doing them in order, shitstain. Juice next.
I shouldn't be laughing this hard.
Stupid question user
How much money you spend in animu?
I only brought love live mini dolls for ... 33 usd
Crippleland buyfag threads are always ded, it's better for anything else thought.
There aren't many things to shitpost about between events, also finals as someone mentioned.
cripplekike's Sup Forums is slow as fuck though. Virtually no one goes there anymore save for a few people. Most of Sup Forums wants to stay than go somewhere else. And no there Sup Forums isn't better than ours
ну а хуй ли
German tax office for me. I don't have the time and nerve to drive to the other side of the town just to deal with some incompetent fucktards for every shipment. now I occasionally buy 1-2 scales a month and some figmas and nendos from local webshops
покажи, что у тебя есть тогда
I want the slavs to leave.
i want the fags to leave, сука блять
I don't, because we'd be back to a dying thread. At least those guys keep this place alive until more people show up later
More people will come back, hopefully. Its very well possible that its getting more expensive to buy this stuff
I don't know what that's from but it looks boss as fuck.
and part of the reason no one wants to go there is because that Sup Forums is despised by a majority of 8gag. Also the admin of that board is a grammar Nazi tranny
I never post because I just lurk and look at the pretty figures I can't buy and the ones I missed out on
I'd assume a lot of people are like me
yfw last wonfes was so shit, it killed buyfag threads
Man, the new egoist single is actually disappointing. Expected something way better from Kabaneri OP version. Dont know why I bought it
Atleast Ill get the poster, but otherwise it doesnt hold a candle to their other singles.
My niece came visit and loved collection, she wants precure fig for her birthday.
I think part of it is how everyone is an asshole to half the potential content of these threads.
Questions are met with bitching and directing to google or the guide (Yes, I understand that the answers are in those sources, but not being able to ask questions does shut out some posting).
Anything about personal desires or purchases is met with, "lol nice blog" and shit like that. And if you get shit on for posting about the shit you like or want, or about your recent orders, then what exactly IS there to post about? There are only so many new figures to post pictures of before you run out of content.
In short, you guys are all faggots and you deserve what you get.
Who the fuck cares. If you're too sensitive to handle people's comments then you really should fuck off.
It doesn't matter. These threads don't need to be up 24/7.
These threads don't need to be up 24/7.
Yes they do
cover your shit up when minors visit your room goddamnit. do lewdfags have no sense of responsibility?
Cute, I hope you get her one.
did someone pointed out your shit taste or why are you so buttmad?
For me I lost a bit of interest because of kancolle/ touken ranbu. That shit gets spammed like no tommorow and less interesting (for me) stuff gets made
Do you really fags believe that's his pic?
So, your niece likes all you openly displayed lewd stuff?
How have you not been crucified by your in-laws?
Are you suggesting you are UncleAnon(TM)?
They are just drawings user, nothing she wouldn't see in a museum.
I'm on a mission, Sup Forums. How the fuck do I buy this?
People are falling for this kinda shit, that's how low buyfag has sunken
It sucks having good taste, doesn't it? I know your pain.
You need to use a proxy for tora
Read the guide.
first step is not having shit taste
Well IPs aren't that low (137 right now) it would have been around 180 a few months ago when threads were noticiable faster. Most posts were made by 10 or less people ( I myself have noticed that used to make 20-30 posts per thread), also tripfags are mostly gone.
they aren't, it's just shitposting to keep alive the thread.
Does fromjapan tend to hike up shipping?
Ethically, we might be in agreement on that. However, I don't imagine most parents would be okay with an uncle showing lewds to their daughter. Maybe your country has different social norms about how to acceptably educate children about their sexuality. If that is the case than I apologize, for my burgerland ethnocentrism. I kinda assume most people in buyfag thread live in a social paradigm that shuns open consideration or displays of sexuality.
Did someone try and rewrite the guide at some point? I was going through my folders and found I had saved what looked to be an awful version made when the real one got blocked on google docs.
From my experiences their shipping prices have been quite high, although I don't think they're just inflating it rather that they use a ridiculous amount of padding and often boxes a lot bigger than necessary.
They have an option for "use minimal packaging" I think, but I've never tried it so not sure if that would make a difference.
Oh, it's an actually used website? Alright, lemme check...
tripfags are mostly gone
What magical turn of events allowed this to happen?
Maybe the new hotpockets got them all.
I don't think there's anything wrong with the thread, we're just between a lot of buyfag events and announcements.
Also did janelee's ebay store go down? The linked stopped working a couple of months ago.
I know I'm late here, but get a real mask with good filters and stuff, not just a disposable dust mask. Working resin without good lung protection can fuck up your lungs.
It was 3492 to EMS this to the US last month, if that helps. The box was the appropriate size, and padding was sufficient. Each of the flat things was in a plastic sleeve with a piece of cardboard (some were probably combined, like the signboards). The photo frame was in the small box that it was sold in, wrapped in bubble wrap. I think the BD was also bubble wrapped. I used the regular packing option; I'm not sure how much difference the light packing option would have made. What can really hike up the charge 2 payment is the domestic shipping charges and bank transfer fees if you buy a lot of stuff from different sellers.
Are the key frames reproductions?
Sakura from Sakura Taisen
What's in the memories book?
Great taste. Do you have other signboards? I've only got Kaoru but hers is really cute.
Not that user but it's probably part of a set, so yeah they're reproductions.
Finally took out Miku out of her Dollfie Dream box for pictures, I buy so much of this shit I still have yet to save for the long tall closing display cases I need... I just have a shit ton of figures still in their boxes in my spare room.
Style the fucking hair you monster.
I don't, but only because of GSC's combined shipping. Otherwise it'd be a harder sell for me.
Bed hair Miku is cute!
I'll get on it, I may even thin out her middle bang piece with thinning scissors it's pretty thick.
Also that top piece of hair is meant to stay up it won't stay down.
How do you not know Sakura Taisen?
How can they be combined if they're coming out in different months? Or you're talking about other GSC's figures you have ordered for the same month?
Sell some to us.
This is just a bit of what I got I'll take more pictures after I get some Subway I'm starving.
I hope your house gets robbed while you're out
Thank you sir this means a lot to Miku shes very happy
When is the next Wonder Festival?
on my birthday
it will suck anyway, so who cares
anyone else like me?
I buy my figures but never open them, I store the boxes around my room and most in the closet as i've ran out of space. i'm too paranoid of damaging the figure or making them not worth as much if i open it
no because if i cared about the money there's thousands of better places to invest on than plastic butts.
I kept them in boxes for a couple years until I got some decent display cabinets and still keep tens of nendoroids in their boxes some to resell and some because no space.
Mio Dali arrived two days ago
Post office still hasn't sorted it to deliver
FUCKING DELIVER IT ALREADY ASSHOLES I WANT TO FUCK HER
GSC combines shipping on items in a single order, even if they're released separately. Instead of paying for shipping twice for the first two, I only had to pay for it once.
If they keep opening POs for two at a time, that cuts the shipping in half.
Mio is the worst CG.
Shut up s-secondary.
Mio a bitch
You could open your figures and enjoy them or you could keep them in the box for eternity. You could snap together you plamo, or you could leave it be because you're too afraid of screwing up. You could go out and make something of yourself, or you could stay where you are because the prospect of failing is just too painful.
What do you do?
s for shit
So what is a good, not expensive A2 poster frame?
I needed her to complete my new generations daki harem user.
I hope Orange Mary makes Ranran too since it looks like they're going to make every single idol. If they do I will buy two and actually legitimately defile one. The R in Ranko stands for rape.
I hope you like folding posters
Oh god please no.
I just buy mine from Ikea. They're cheap and look fine.
You either buy a frame that's too big or a frame too small, none of the Western frames fit Japanese posters perfectly unless it's custom made.
Just decided to open my Kongou after weeks of sitting in her box and outer plastic. Her pantyhose is less shiny than I thought it would be, which is good in my opinion. Love how she's essentially base-less.
Mine just got caught by customs.
Hopefully they release her soon.
I noticed this when I was looking for an A2 frame for my illya poster, why the fuck is japan the only country in the world that uses A2 frames?
I just bought an A2 frame from a japanese store on amazon and it was pretty cheap
Now I imagine overworked customs officers keeping a horde of pouting figures under control, assuring them they will be sent on their way soon.
I bought some cheap ass frames to begin with, then had some custom made later with UV protection to stop them from fading later on.
Along with I decided to also take a couple of shots of my 1/4th Houki.
letting sunlight in your room
Hands down my favourite figure, she's gorgeous, and I love everything about her.
Why won't you guys buy a big frame and locate your poster in the center with some white or whatever background?
Come the fuck on.
Yeah. Only other figure that could outmatch her is Cadenza Kongou.
easier to buy an A2 frame on amazon that fits
How cheap are we talking? Most I see are like 45 USD.
That manga was so great.
That's called a passe-partout.
isn't this a character from a trading card game bundled with an overpriced shitty choclate?
£15 is probably equivalent to about four hundred USD
Unfortunately, it's unavailable on the american site. Oh well.
Agreed. I think a bunny Cadenza version is coming in the future but i'd rather Funny Knights made Cadenza style Kongou figure like the original posted.
My IKEA constantly holding sales for frames so I have a fuckton of different frames different sizes and color. I just can't resist those prices but I framed only two posters.
don't worry I'm sure you can make a frame out of burgers
Thanks user for teaching me a new word.
all 4 have the same bodies
What's the point then?
Sorry for bad pic.
ordered $1200 PC 2 days ago
get hit with payment requests today
I feel fine.
Best IS, Can't wait to get the
Good lets go back to 1 thread each week.
mfw trying to find shop that sells plastic raisers
Just use boxes from Ferrero Rocher.
I can't believe Toranoana did a redesign of their site.
And yet it still looks like shit.
Does Melonbooks employ the only competent web designer in Japan?
Damn, Gochuumon confirmed for lewd.
Right so i just bought me the Alter Menma figure and it has a paint spot i need to remove. Normally something like that wouldnt bother me but its on the goddamn face. I have not messed much with the figures themselves from a paint point so my main issue is if the skin is actually painted or if the pvc is molded to be that color. If its actually the pvc that color removing it should be easy.
Either way any tips? Only only place i saw was from the guide and it was the generic mix paint i already know how to do from painting minis.
Fig in question. It seems they might have brushed the cheek with the paint used to fill in the lip crease.
I've been thinking about using more visually interesting stuff as raisers. Old books could be neat but they are kind of heavy and I don't trust my detolfs to hold that weight on one shelf.
I want to hate it, but I can't.
Just people losing actual interest in this overall industry most likely. If you take away all the shitposting and bickering most anime forums barely any traffic anymore.
It's really sad but there was a time when I used plastic cups as nendo risers.
Mio is for hatefucks
Fuck I kind of miss this show. It's like an actually exciting Haifuri/Kancolle with fabulous characters as opposed to blame do boring ones
Did then cancelled.
Welded tits were a dealbreaker.
Ordered Nurse Muramasa instead, I wonder if I did right?
After some more extensive googling i found this page and used my fine modelling file to remove the paint. Man that sucked though.
Hopefully he ended up like that black guy on Facebook.
Or maybe he just grew up.
Post your uzuki
Did it end up better?
Yes, they're reproductions. They were included with the BD at the theater, I believe.
The Memories book is mostly interviews with cast and staff members (and in this one, the owner of Okonomiyaki Horikawa, which was used as the model for Okonomiyaki Hoboro). It also has several screen shots and storyboard pictures. There is one for each movie, plus one for each season of the TV series (which were distributed at the first movie), and there's also a nice box to store them in.
I have all eight sign boards plus the theme song collection one which is in the picture. I plan to get them all framed to hang on the wall (I already have Potte and Chihiro/Tomo-chan framed).
Meant to quote for the first part.
Hello to Australia!
Just got my Shiro today! Really gorgeous figure. A great inclusion to my tiny, budding collection.
Fucking crikey, not sure why that happened. Let's flip it upside down and try again.
fuck off idiot.
Fuck it, G'DAY FROM DOWN UNDAH YA CUNT
Got my shiro as soon as I got off work
Box dented heavily
Figure box dented
I'm glad I'm not some sperg that cares about box creases and shit.
Get off your phone you cunt
Figures glued to the ceiling
user are you batman?
Glad to hear the product itself wasn't damaged. I toss my packaging into storage, but it still irks the shit out of me when it's banged up.
Not on it, you mangy twat. The image looks fine in photo viewer, so I'm not sure why it's flipping. Tough shit I guess.
God damn, I can't wait to get mine now so I can lick her ass.
The manga is ongoing and worth every byte it's printed on.
It went pants on retarded at the end though
Interesting idea. I have some Franklin Library editions that look pretty nice that I could do something with. Too bad none of my figures really suit the style.
I wish Queen of Hearts had an anime or game or even a 4koma that I could check out and convince myself I liked so I could justify getting that figure.
patchy, dantalian or yumiko would be obvious candidates.
How long does toranoana usually take to ship? Are they as slow as suruga-ya?
Good idea. I'm gonna hold out for this qt.
Might take awhile.
Thought this was Merry "Vaginabones" Nightmare from the thumbnail, I'm supremely disappointed.
That feel when pre ordered QoH week 1, bought Alice from AmiAmi's ebay at 112$ free EMS
She's since went up to 175$ free shipping (Economy)
I'm a fucking GENIUS!
You mean MadThad?
Only person that the user could be talking about. Didn't he get out last year?
He was supposed to, but after posting pic related on facebook his bail was revoked, and now he's in until 2020.
Holy fuck how can anyone be this retarded.
Prettiest face I have seen in a POP so far.
Those boots alone might be enough for me to get that figure.
Probably a mixture of feeling untouchable and not thinking about consequences.
And it's not even that hard to openly talk about CP on the internet. One of the few steps involved is not using any account associated with your meatbag persona.
I'm still baffled that people do shit like that. Like using your main E-mail address for questionable sites.
A dumbass I used to go to high school with was denied a job because the E-mail he used to apply was also used for a bunch of ERP and furry websites.
I only use my main E-mail for actual E-mails, I don't have any account associated with it.
Its gone 100% and no marks on the figure you can see without a magnifying glass.
a sad thing that moot banned doxxing, it was good in raising privacy awareness in a mostly harmless way.
I agree. It sucks that we'll never get a Nendo of the best girl, The Brat.
What is she from?
Try this again and hope the right picture attaches.
Wheels don't turn and it is impossible for another Nendoroid to fit in the side car.
Sorry to dredge up an ancient post, but who's the hammer grill?
If only the product came with a handy box were the series title is printed in the top left corner.
search the database. wow wow.
You talk as if I'm a regular who knows what he's doing. Mind enlightening me?
I doubt image searching a butt would lead to many results, would you look for specific tags?
Sorry guys, but I have to go. A bit early... anyway, here's

Bumplimit of this thread is almost reached.
Deal with it.
be so kind, dispose of your body on the way out.
would you look for specific tags?
if you don't know which database i'm referring to, there is a guide in the OP which you should have read before asking stupid questions
You can go watch the Olympics and pick it up when it releases in 2020
You talk as if I'm a regular who knows what he's doing.
then lurk moar, newfag
Maybe Otome Function will be closer to coming out by then.
As user mentioned earlier, they all have the same body, so GSC just has to make new heads, limbs, and accessories for the other characters. It's easy money, but I guess they don't want it.
Oh, sorry friend. Thanks for the help.
She doesn't even fit in her own sidecar.
Turning wheels would be pretty stupid, but other nendos not fitting in the car is unforgivable
Damn TamayuraAnon, that's some aggressive collecting. Post your up to date full collection one of these days
I do that with Dalian myself. Tomes and book figures really do go nicely together.
Turned out better than I expected
Can't wait for nendos of the whole Haifuri cast with same body.
apostrophe for quotation
I don't condone your shitty childish vocab you aspie.
I'll add a trigger warning next time.
There is nothign wrong with Phat, do you even own any of their figures?
