Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
I would offer my virginity to grizzry panda if I could.
I wonder how good-looking the bitch who's making him sell all this is
I've lost control of my life. Between my SO and I we have 5 figures on preorder now.
Grizzry a best, though I'm an abira fan as well.
>order these sleeves cause they look nice, even though NGNL is shit
>only realize the fluffy tail is floating and not connected to the body after ordering
fuck, how could they let this happen
So honest question, Is amazon a more accepted place to get figures now? I've ordered from them a couple times. Also it doesn't seem like there are any chinese sellers, all of them say from japan.
They're okay. Sometimes overpriced by sometimes you can get a decent deal on some things.
I've heard from other /a/nons that if you get a bootleg and contact amazon they'll usually do something about i.
Didn't Amazon.it have a pretty good deal on IBRS? You're fine if it's sold by Amazon and not some third party seller.
I mean, tracing it out, it could be a fluffy blob behind the robe that wouldn't be too terrible, but having no indication of a tail hole makes it look really weird.
Maybe I'm just trying to assuage my ocd so I don't get angry when I eventually use them.
Hoping her QC is good since I heard maiko Homu was good.
On the bright side, they look pretty good regardless, being Hatsuse and all.
The tail does, however, really look off, but maybe that's because
I have a fetish for that kinda thingand I'm just nitpicking.
What sort of prude doesn't have a fetish for fluffy tails.
From last thread.
Amazon.co.jp is having a sale: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1207&creative=8415&linkCode=shr&tag=husigi-22&field-enc-merchantbin=AN1VRQENFRJN5&field-pct-off=40-99&page=1&rh=n:undefined,n:2277721051&srs=2972079051
re-posting because it helped me a lot.
D...don't start with me, anon... Touhou tails are my favorite tails...
But that would mean I'm not displaying any of them. Also I have nine.
Daily remainder that Canada fags and maybe UK fags wont get her. How does this make you feel?
Has a figure ever gotten you to watch the source?
Saber Suit RAH, $261.51.
Although I'm thinking of getting a Dollfie and that will cost upwards of 2k.
Spent 30K on this then resold it as soon as it arrived when I saw how shit the face was.
>necklace $10 (hand made)
>hairclip $10 (hand made)
get on my level
Seriously I need an answer to this too. I've always wondered how big orders come in. Do you get a huge fucking heavy box coming in on a trolley? Or do you get a bunch of boxes? I've gotten big orders before, but nothing more than just a few scales which came in a pretty big box.
What is that GK you want that will never be PVC?
I preordered Hibiki's figma because i liked the over all design, plus the rape face didn't hurt, didn't get round to watching the anime till earlier this year and it has become one of my favorite shows that i may have never got round to watching if i didn't have the figma to remind me of it.
The facial expression is perfect, too bad the rest of it is just boring sex appeal.
Koto and GSC version was much better. Heck, even CM corps one was way better.
I just want a smug Holo, is that too much to ask for?
Hell, more smug in general would be nice.
Every day until Laura's -Bunny Style- figure by Kotobukiya is up for preorders.
Getting this for a friend. I wish I knew about this earlier so that I could have ordered it with the GSC's preorder bonus...
And the only scale from the show is of Chris in a bunny suit, which i don't think looks that good but then again i was kind of hoping they would have made it more like the image and included the chibi gears.
But hey there is always season 3 right?
Nothing like some good old self delusion
>Nothing like some good old self delusion
What self delusion? Season 3 is confirmed, the assumption for it is summer 2015 IIRC, and at the very least we should get a Chris figma to complete the set.
>scarf Hibiki figma fucking never
I would get that Shinobu in a heartbeat, but something about the face seems off. Maybe too wide?
I would do anything for more smug figures in general.
I can't decide which is the worst /a/.
Seriously, why aren't there more steins;gate figures? I thought it was one of the most acclaimed animes in the last years
Definitely not worth the price.
>MAL determining what figures are made.
>Western audiences determining what figures are made.
It was a nice thread while it lasted.
don't even give a fuck
already ordered both left and right (fucking Ciel RAH where)
sorry wallet except not really
Sure I'm samefagging, retard, is that what you'd do?
Don't trust MAL? How about wikipedia?
Sure anyone can edit what's in there but there are sources that state that it was acclaimed. I'm not saying it was good or bad but you can't deny that many people liked it, even if it is shit taste for you. GSC's Kurisu is one of the most wanted figures, you can check on MFC. That's why I wonder why it doesn't have more figures.
I finally got these brushes, they're amazing. I'm only using one brush for now, but it does the job better than blowing air on your figures.
And of course, makes you spend more time with your lovely figs.
>6000 yen retail price
Yeesh, figmas have gotten a lot more expensive over the years compared to the average income increase rate.
They're small, but they're the right size.
The proto looks great, I understand some people are really wary because of the manufacturer but honestly I love the proto.
Hm. I have the same thing but my second part of that question was wondering how the fuck you use that stuff to clean figures of course apart from the brushes. Is the solution dangerous? Isn't it hard to wipe the hard to reach places?
Bravo, you made me chuckle.
Makeup brush, dusters, particularly blowers, just blast the dust aroun the room, and suction ones are not nearly strong enough to get the dust from every nook and cranny.
Do you just decide to change a part of your name during threads? Because I noticed that a post someone just quotes of you has Noodles spelt normally. Do you just do this for fun?
Huh didn't expect a freedom wars nendo, but then again i wasn't paying much attention to it before i bought the game.
A bit more, give or take a couple of minutes per figure. And I don't have them in a cabinet, I have wall mounted shelves.
Might get, no homo.
I like seeing dedication like this.
Now I have a question for the rest of the thread:
What's the most number of figures you have of a single character?
(let's say a figure = prize figure or better)
7 for me.
Why the do people say this? We mainly use PayPal so I look at PayPal conversion because that's exactly how it's going to happen when I spend my money, so that's all that actually matters.
I find it strange how the Google conversion went up from yesterday while the PayPal conversion went down from yesterday. Yesterday Google was around 1:100.08 while Paypal was rounded to 1:98.
I just added more shelves, the setup remains the same, just with more space.
I still have pending the remodel of the room next door to accommodate more figures but that will have to with.
I used to do airbrush painting, though I might be rusty after some years. Not planning to pick it back anytime soon since there is not much time to spare.
Deep Sea shot up 2k, Cerberus shot up 800, then another 3k, thoughts?
It just looks really off to me. There's like 1 or two Marvel ones I do like but the rest not so much. I really wish I got the Rogue one though.
>What's the most number of figures you have of a single character?
I think 9 or possibly 10.
>remodel of the room next door to accommodate more figures
Do you plan to stay with your mother long enough to actually go through with such a big project?
>not much time to spare
Is work that time consuming?
>Why the do people say this?
>I find it strange how the Google conversion went up from yesterday while the PayPal conversion went down from yesterday
You answered your own question. Paypal isn't exactly accurate when it comes to conversion rates, and it's much more noticeable when you pay for more expensive orders.
Pretty sure I can get the room to my liking in a couple of weeks, I jut can't do it now since it's in use. And I'm not planning to leave anytime soon.
Work is just 10 hours a day, there's still time to spare but I rather watch anime, play vidya, and hunt for 2d porn.
Who else is waiting on Cordelia to pair with their Tharja fig?
Judging by how beautiful Tharja was, I'm expecting big things from Cordelia, though I wonder how they'll pose her.
Brave Lance-Weilding Pegasus-Riding DX Version please.
Except you didn't and that's not an answer. You're missing the only relevant point. When we buy shit, we use PayPal to convert. It doesn't matter if Google said CAD:Yen = 1:500, if PayPal says it's 1:98, we will be fucking paying 1:98.
What a cutie. I love the little extra effects they are putting into it. It will be a struggle to decide between getting the GSC exclusive or not. Damn that thorn be enticing though.
Holy shit, ten times as hnnnng as the Figuarts.
But how badly do you think you'll regret not buying it from GSC? Personally if I really like something I'd just get it because the regret just kills me. Then there's trying to buy it after the fact that you already bought the standard version for a much higher price cause you didn't buy it when you had the chance. It's up to you and I understand how that can be really enticing but if it were me I'd just buy it from GSC.
OH, Sa-tan, not sightly less saturated than in the promo pics.
That was Bandai showing they can't be beat when it comes to robots and bugmen.
This is GSC showing Bandai should just give up on things with faces. I'd murder someone for a figma Sailor Moon.
PayPal>Bank accounts and cards>PayPal Balance>Manage currencies.
I fully expect a school uniform version with a CHAN-SU! face.
Do not disappoint me GSC.
Look at this shit, it's like night and day.
I really wish they'd make a good Faye Valentine figure, especially with her wearing her bikini but her normal clothes would have been great too.
Also not figure related but I'm getting the Funimation Bluray/DVD limited edition of Cowboy Bebop from Funimation that comes with a vinyl record packaging.
I've been wondering for the longest, what a can badge was
and I finally received pic related
and its a button pin
Unless you have a large amount of Japanese yen in your account, all services will exchange at around 2.5% to 3%. It doesn't matter which service you use.
Paypal only updates twice a day, as opposed to other financial services. If the yen suddenly spikes, you'll lose out on PP, but if the yen plummets, you'll get more preferable rates.
nigger, you can't post this shit here unless it's hotglued
I'm thinking of getting this since most other places are sold out online, which store should I trust?
>Didn't even know that last one was getting a re-release. Hooray!
Same, I'm getting really tempted because they've got them all in stock again but shit it's going to cost me way too much.
I have this one artist who I see every year at a local anime con. I always wind up buying 2-3 or more of his prints every year. I've got 15 still that need framing, along with 1 by another artist, and a couple other prints of different things.
Here's what I've got on the wall so far though. There's also one of Rukia on another wall, and then a Jinx from LoL that I haven't hung yet. Don't know whether to put her under Hinata, or beside Lucina.
Something about himecuts drives me wild. What's your favorite figure with a himecut?
Fuck, now I want a figure of Kagura from Fairy Tail.
I know it's not the topic at hand, but I really want a Mavis figure.
Goddamn they look so good together.
What's the chances of either binning or are the fujos gonna buy 'em out like with the Frees?
OH SHIT I just got here, Megahouse finally hurried! Now to wait for Hiyori and hopefully Yukine.
Totally wasn't expecting her to show up on AmiAmi today, only checked the site on a whim saw her then put in a pre-order. I only have on other figma so it be nice to have a second of a favourite character no less.
Do you mean the decision to start buyfagging? I regret a few purchases i've made, but all in all buyfagging has filled the void in my life
you guys are my only friends, i'm so glad these threads are here
First fig was AlphaOmega C.C.
Nice as fuck. Still love her. Love all the plastic I've bought since.
5 years after I first bought her, I go to dust her, and discover she has molded and painted nipples. What a neat surprise.
Wait, so I need premium account to insta-buy this?
Phat's Ikaruga is pretty much what you're looking for.
There are multiple Sebastians coming out (Koto/Aniplex/MegaHouse) so they will be competing for the market share and it's unlikely that the Koto and MegaHouse ones will sell out. If anything's going to bargain bin, it'll be those two.
Well, that's pretty inconvenient. I'm using Japan shopping Service and already 'paid' for it, though I'm using their 'bid on your own' option (testing out the waters on YAJ, proxies, and whatnot). Also sucks because the same item came up for them. Guess I'll ask JSS to choose to allocate the money on that other one.
Nice, I finally got my invoice from Goody-Japan 73 hours after requesting it. I guess they really wanted me to save some money by letting the exchange rate get a little better. 10/10, will definitely use for all future items that I want shipped promptly.
I pre-ordered Ciel but I'm still on the fence about Sebastian. They shouldn't be hard to find right after release but they'll become rarer after fujos get a hold on them and refuse to let go. There's also the chance on Koto fucking up on them like Shiro.
Anyone got any experience with Japan Shopping Service? There's an auction I want to drop, but it won't end for 3 more days, while there's an auction I want to bid on, but it ends in less than 2 days. I'd rather not pay another deposit, and instead use the one from the first order, but do they really do these sorts of changes?
Not too bad for a prize fig honestly.
I bought a $50 Rei this summer.
Found her on eBay for $20 a day later.
Let this be a lesson boys and girls. Never buy con.
I probably will next year too anyway.
~$110 1/8 Kotobukiya scale of Kenshin from Rance VII.
Did I regret it? No, it was like Christmas, and I went a bit nuts with it all after that. Then it was Christmas every day for a while. Do I regret it now? Slightly, it could have been cheaper, but whatever. Not as much as I regret paying the exorbitant shipping on a Madokami scale which is now worth less than half of what I paid for it. Why the fuck did I think I needed to pre-order that? OF COURSE THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE A TRILLION OF THEM, YOU STUPID ME. I don't even have the excuse of being new, I was well into it by that point. End captain's log.

Does that suit your sensitive tastes better, faggot?
>revolshit and SHfuck
Noodles please don't bully figures.
my first figure was this
She is my friend's waifu and when he saw this figure announced he REALLY wanted it, and the release date was shortly before his birthday so I said I'd buy it for him. I actually just ordered it for myself and when I got it I took a picture of her holding a note saying "I'm sorry, (friend's name), but I'm (my name)'s waifu now". Then a few days later I hotglued her and sent him a picture of that too. He got really upset so I felt bad and ordered him one for real. Buying the figure to troll him in the first place was totally worth it, I only regret having to buy two of them to do it. (I wasn't going to send him the hotglued one, I'm not a monster....) And yes I know she's got dust all over her, I don't clean her because I feel no connection to her. All my other figures are my waifus so I take care of them properly.
Nice first fig. Mine was this.
Why did you hotglue her?
Hearthcatch Precure figuart, worse shit ever.
Thank god I bought Zessica SHF Zero for only 500yen. Even prize figures have better paint app.
As for standard SHF. Really disappointed when they shift from die-cast feet to plastic.
Well duh. Any jointed figure with that much bare skin is bound to be awful.
Also, I got the Zessica too, since it was so cheap. Haven't even opened it though.
>Shift from die-cast feet to plastic.
Yeah. Yeah I'll agree with you there.
Anyone ever have a cat knock over a figure?
Luckily my Momohime got saved by the stack of ygo cards I had conveniently positionedby her fall on the desk. Nothing was damaged. Assault Dog, you are my bro.
So GSC is opening a Pop-up store next week in Paris.
How does this make you feel?
Since when did mods care more about ponyshit being posted than anyone else?
That fucking hat is obnoxious, though.
Why bother? A single store in europe will only reach a tiny fraction of the scattered potential customer base.
Who would spend hundreds of jewros just to go there and then buy 1-2 figures?
my cats knock over my nendoroids all the time, it's fucking annoying
I got all my figures in a detolf now, but there's not enough room to put my nendoroids in there too without it being overcrowded and I don't quite have enough stuff to fill a second detolf yet
Except it's not. GSC went to Japan Expo this summer (it's a con in Paris) and there was a huge line in front of their booth, every single day. They are very popular.
Yeah luckily for us there aren't giant spiders.
Pretty flimsy base. Atleast it isn't as bad as Tharja.
I hope they do a re-reprint again cause I love this figure so much I want another. It is sad that we will not get Kongikus sister Yuzuruha or Momohimes sister Torahime.
A couple times. The bigger problem was that I stopped being able to display Sayaka with swords (scale or nendo) because the cats kept taking just the swords without knocking anything else over.
They also managed to take the front piece of the petite's hair that I could not find until I moved out of the last apartment.
Ohh look more Miku.
>not buying an army of storm trooper nendos
