The guide - buyfag.moe
What's your most recent figure arrival?
How expensive are the good ones?
I want to get me these. Also some wafers while I'm at it.
Don't think merging is possible, just carry on in this thread.
A 1/4 bunny by FREEing usually costs around the $300AUD mark. I usually expect to pay between $150 - $250 for a good quality fig.
You need to invest in some display cabinets anon.
Yeah, you got Astaroth alright. You should add her daughter Asmodeus to your collection.
>Why is AUD so worthless?
1 AUD = 0.79 USD. It's not worthless, just not as strong. It's probably easier to talk about pricing in anime dollars from here on out to avoid confusion though.
I meant to add that you should buy some detolfs. They're not great but they do the job and are reasonably cheap.
My most recent /animu/ purchase was Dragon Half for the PC 9801
That manga was awesome. It sucks it only got OVA and never a full fledged series.
i was looking for the "Guardess in Eden" Artbook, "Preserved Eden"
but can't find it anywhere
I generally only buy 2hus, and only from qques. They do good work nowadays. Got their latest Patchy to add to my shrine.
>tfw 2hu is dead
>That manga was awesome.
Those came in a few weeks ago. I have not had a chance to go through them all yet though.
Did not even see it listed on mandarake. Not even sold out.
3 figures and some keychains are currently on the way, albeit delayed by the recent blizzard. The keychains are at customs at the moment, so I assume that there’s a queue.
Why would you want something that smells like a girl's sweaty foot?
Some people like their foot fetishes with a side of smell. To each their own.
How does one achieve such a fetish, though?
I have a very sensitive nose, and strong bodily smells make me sick.
>I have a very sensitive nose, and strong bodily smells make me sick.
Then I guess you wouldn't like the High Orc.
>overpowering pig musk, probably piss based
What is your problem, have you never worked on a farm with pigs?
/monster/ really doesnt get me, anymore. Maybe five years ago
There's two different scents, one for when she's dominant and one for when she's submissive. The submissive one is probably more feminine.
That's autistic as fuck.
Autism is the backbone of imageboards, anon. It all depends on how you shape that autism.
>they have two different scents
>piss with extra urea and waste minerals
>or, piss with average amount of urea and waste, and maybe a few pheromones
Dude, just go to a pig farm. Spend a good time there, and maybe your lust for pigs will subside.
Next thing you know, you'll be telling me that eating pork is bad
Proud of your autism, though, son.
>the only farm animal that makes sure to keep their pissing area separate from its eating, drinking, and sleeping areas is the one that smells like piss
>he unironically gets his knowledge of animals entirely from stereotypes and then tells other people to visit farms
Let me guess, you think owls are the smartest bird, too?
On a side note, pigs actually have few sweat glands, so it's probably not some kind of sweaty musk, either. It's the entire reason why pigs roll around in mud, but some farms easily substitute that for using sprinklers on the pigs.
<pigs piss in seperate places, so they smell better, de facto
>actual xenos/zoo astroturfing
I doubt youve worked on a farm, anon. If you have, then seek help.
Musk mainly gets its stench from pheremones. Pheremones in piss is common amongst all mammals, as well.
If you want to sperg out about how fugging xenos is cool, be my guest. It'll only make you look worse
If you guys want to discuss smells, go to /d/ with that shit.
I don't even think our /d/ is active enough for actual discussion, let alone image dumps or something along those lines.
What have you got coming?
my next nip buyfag purchase is a tanto
That's cool. I used to collect shitty swords. Still have a shitty Bleach Bankai sword from when I was first getting into anime. Hopefully your tanto will be higher quality than the lumps of steel I've got. As for your disapproval they make me happy so I bought them. Already have the Rem nendroid so I needed a good scale figure to go with it. This is the only Galko I'll probably buy. I like the glasses on this one but on the newest pre-order I'm turned off by syringes so I'm not going to be buying that one. Maybe if they make a good swimsuit figure I might buy that.
>buying chinese made cosplay props
Oh, you poor misguided soul
This one is papered, from a famous smith.
If you want a real nip bushido blade, search "nihonto for sale" in your favorite search engine
I personallyobjectively find rem to be a shit wifu with no real personality. If it makes you happy, go bonkers. Your money, not mine. I dont get aroused by needles or nurse cosplay, but i am also not scared of needles. But, i dont like galko enough to buy a fig of her.
Still got my wonfes anzu figma MIB B^)
>wonfes anzu figma
She's cute but that flesh fang. Ewww. Always looks like a birth defect to me.
Looking at the first result for nihonto for sale and it's a little rich for my blood. I don't have a problem dropping 500 bucks for figures but 6500 for a all be it a very nice sword is a good chunk of change. I could get a beater car for that. My priorities would be more on the cute big breasted 1/7s I can get for about 110 each.
Take it or leave it. It comes with a few faces, so i dont care. The rarity alone makes it the best twenty bux i spent at a conthanks goodsmile, truly the marchant is my greatest ally!
Fully mounted blades are expensive, especially intact, matching Edo mountings. Keep your eyes peeled and you can find a decent blade in a shirasaya or a nice koshirae for under 2k
Twenty bucks is a good deal for a figma.
If you live in burgerland, you can attend cons that host manufacturers like goodsmile. Goodsmile doesnt mark thier shit up, they sell very close to cost. And, they will usually have special, trade show exclusive, figs in limited supply.
Never attend for anything except fig purchasing.
I preordered these. The wait is kinda killing me. I'm impatient as fuck. I always wanted a little Haro.
Yet another thing Star Wars ripped off.
They're really cheap. You should pick one up if you're a Gundam fan.
They are cute. I couldn't get into Gundam and I'm probably a pleb for that but I really tried with 0079. G Gundam is kickass though and I would buy all the wacky Gundam from that show If they weren't probably thousands of dollars and something I would have to handcraft even after buying. Might as well learn to sculpt and go that route. I would buy a Haro because the little guy is pretty cute but I would feel like a cad displaying him.
Happy pupper says it's here! She loves smelling the boxes. A little banged up in shipping but otherwise fine on the inside. Next post has the rest of the pictures I took.
I did a rookie mistake with Kagura and forced the china dress down which scraped some red paint onto her stomach. It looks terrible but it's my fault. I guess she's a keeper. This is my whole collection now. I'm pretty proud of it.
Oops. Max file size so I'm breaking that up into another post.
Let me know if you want better pics of anything in particular.
I don't care what anyone says on /a/. G Gundam is fucking amazing, and is one of the better Gundams. I loved it so much, I actually bought the OST. Trust You Forever is my jam! I love when the guy random brusts out into random bad English. Ha ha…
The Gundam series is not for everyone. I recently tried rewatching Seed and 00 and was surprised about how mediocre they are. Too much drama and characters feel really bland. My dad always talked shit about Seed, now I know why. I loved those shows when I was teen though. And the OST for Seed is probably is if not one of the bests.I really liked Orphans. I hope in time when I rewatch it in the future, I'll still like it. I recommend that and MS team. That show aged wonderfully. I think you'll like it if you can get past the first few cheesy episodes.
I grew up watching Gundam on VHS, and I have always, always loved Haro.
I want a real one. I want it to chirp cute robotic noises, and flap its cute little arms aggressively at me. Maybe one day they'll sell one that can sync with your phone, and talk like Siri. That be so fucking cool. I'd cry in happiness.
I have same dog. Adorable! >>10867 Really cute.
Sorry I geeked out a little, so many grammar errors. I get talk to others often about anime. Ugh.
No problem geeking out over your hobbies, man. If you're not excited about it you're doing it wrong. Sounds like you're enjoying your life the proper way. Have you thought about playing around with Arduino? It's supposed to be a robotics hobbist's wet dream and you could get the plastic parts 3D printed for you. I know there's a steep learning curve to that but it's something to look into. I'll pass along your regards to my adorable doggo. Thank you.
>1/3 of the cost is the item
>1/3 is the shipping
>1/3 is taxes + fee for shipping company paying taxes for me before I pay them
Last arrival are Zeppelin and Bismark here. I'm waiting for Z1 to arrive which had it's release pushed back for half a year now.
When she's here… I have no goddamm clue where to put her. I need a bigger place.
G Gundam was always considered to be an odd one in the franchise and doesn't sit well with all Gundam fans. This is because G Gundam is more of a super robot anime where they let their fists do all the talking instead of going on about politics.
I haven't bought a figure in months because they're getting to be a chore to clean. Does keeping them in a case cut back on dust that much?
er, isn't that a given?
It can't be worse. But I've no trouble cleaning my figures even if they aren't in a case.
I've yet to find a "fast" way to clean them. I find a makeup brush is the safest and most effective way of getting it done. I've tried out air dusting (with a blower, not the chemical shit) and it leaves behind finer dust, it's also kinda sketchy on figures with small parts that can come off.
Once you hit 100+ figures the cleaning is time consuming.
That's a lot, anon. You should buy a case then. It'll reduce the amount of time spent on cleaning. Also, you should do it less frequently.
I've been mulling the idea of getting cases and lightning for a while, I think I'm going to take the plunge.
>I did a rookie mistake with Kagura and forced the china dress down which scraped some red paint onto her stomach.
Lighter fluid will take that right off.
Hold on I have to delete system32 first to fix my computer.
Not joking anon just don't get it on any other paint. Lighter fluid is used by toy collectors to remove marks all the time. put some on a qtip and wipe the mark off gently. If there is other paint near by it is probably best left as it.
Piratefag here. any collector willing to 3D scan their collections and upload the 3Dmap so i can print them? also if you have scans of a 3D printer that would be helpful too.
>i can print them?
i dont think you can pirate a printer.
been checking Rakuten, ebay, amazon jp, nothing
is this even out yet?
I still receive new preorder announcements from on an email account I used back when I was buying wholesale. Will post as I receive them if there is interest.
>back when I was buying wholesale
Did you used to run a store? I'm tempted by that Rize, I already have her maid version.
Just a small website that is long gone. It was a short run but it was fun receiving boxes of koto and goodsmile stuff.
What's the best place to buyfag
Posting about buying stuff or buying stuff?
amiami is run pretty well unless you change your mind on preorders a lot.
Shit my wallet just got a little smaller.
Anon who is going to buy a nip blade here. Got my appointment with the collector tomorrow. The same day i emailed him, he sent off the tanto i had my eyes on. He's got a couple wakizashis that are worth a look. I will let you guys know how it goes.
>just got a new job where I'm paid a dollar more per hour
>AND guaranteed 40 hours a week where before I was part-time
>AND my pay will go up another two dollars over the next year as long as I don't fuck up
>AND I can volunteer for overtime once I'm past a certain point
>tfw thinking of all the figs I can buy that I've been eyeing forever
They'll all be sold out by the time you decide to pull the trigger.
The collector was a very interesting old man. He told me a few stories, and showed me some splendid blades. Ended up getting a koto wakizashi. It needs restoration, that is for sure. The koshirae is in good condition for edo period. Looking at getting it restored in the next few months, then shinsa.
Where are the pics?
Right here, friend
>he bought griffiths wakizashi
What is the material on the outside of the scabbard?
Black ishimei with red flakes.
kek, it is just an aiguchi koshirae.
Can you safely break it down and show the stamp??
It is a naginatanaoshi, which is a naginata shortened into a wakizashi. It is koto period, but needs shinsa to specify what era.
Lmoa i forgot to specify that, as a naginatanaoshi, it has no mei. This is because it was shortened from a longer blade.
>This is because it was shortened from a longer blade.
Is that out of respect for the original maker they remove the mark or something? Or would the original maker have shortened it for some reason and not marked it?
Who knows? It needs shinsa and study to find out it's history. That is part of the experience of owning a piece of history; you never know it's story until it is researched.
Have you never owned an antique or artifact before?
In general, when a blade is shortened, it wont have a mei. This is because of many reasons. A different smith could have done the shortening. Perhaps, it was taken from a battlefield to an enemy camp as a prize, then shortened after the war. Maybe the original smith did the shortening, but didnt feel like carving his mei yes this is common amongst these types.
And please stop calling it a stamp. They are carving thier signatures using hammer and chisel. If a sword has a stamp, depending on the family crestshould only be tokugawa, then it is a very important blade made by a shogun's personal smith. Confusing these things is a big error.
Tl;dr learn english
Sage for doubleposting
Thx for the info and explaination.
>Have you never owned an antique or artifact before?
only old rifles
>shit fart online
Stop being a secondary with disposable income to burn. You buy some good shit, but all the fate shit, sabers, and secondary fig picks just scream 'shit eating tumblr plebian'
I think you are mistaking a release list for a purchase list.
The one i responded to says 'preorders' in the filename. So, it is safe to assume, that the anon did preorder the fate go trash assassin figs.
Regardless, he has shit taste for even acknowledging secondary tumblrshit
>'preorders' in the filename.
Did i reply to that post, faggot?
How about you learn fucking english, is that so hard?
>when the buyfag thread is filled with ESL shitters
>Did i reply to that post, faggot?
No, but the image uses the same file name with only the date changed
But they don't, you baka. Look at the filenames again. The first three posted say 'upcomingreleases', and the last says 'preorders'.
If anyone here deserves a prize for being a baka, it is you.
You are right anon my posting career is over.
Glad that's settled.
Now you know who's boss of this gym.
I think I will use this >>13385 filename with a date change for all future updates. thx anon.
If you are pre ordering them, then that is a silly idea. Just use the 'upcomingreleases' filename.
Show us your real preorder list, so i can bully your shit taste

Is it some autistic collector urge, like those people who collect licensed shit such ad TMNT or Transformers?
Youve got shit taste, but i wonder what your income is with that big of a list for only preorders.
Are you some sort of merchant?
>phone accessories that will never be used
Says who? I happily throw pinched straps on my phone and will gladly use the phone case. I feel kind of bad for you that you can't just enjoy a nice figure. I have no feelings one way of the other for F/GO but god damn if Tamamo Cat isn't cute as fuck as scratches my monster girl itch.
>Are you some kind of merchant?
I'm just a faggot with a job who can manage his own finances. I would be interested in seeing what you don't count as shit taste and what you have on preorder.
But you can only use one at a time. Do you honestly cycle through them, like a woman does her accessories?
>into monster girls
Oh, that explains it, you're a xenos loving faggot!
>>>/tumblr/ may be better suited for you, friend.
Im not obligated to capitulate to heretics
Don't know if this question goes in here, but:
Do you buy manga? Translated or not, imported or from your friendly neighbourhood store,
I used to have a collection (might still have it in a box somewhere) but as my interests veered to manga that didn't had official translations, I slowly stopped buying any at all.
Used to get them from the same store I got tabletop RPG books and stuff.
Today just recieve this powder for our first Onahole, been trying whit BF for
days and for our first one its freaking amazing, good bless Japan.
LEWD LEWD LEWD
that powder is probably just clandestine chinese amphetamines you dump on your dick
W..Wait anons. Maybe the poster is a she. Maybe the world is not such a horrible place!
Why would a girl get an onahole?
To use on her massive clit.
>To use on her massive clit.
>use on my bf
>maybe it's a girl
Girls dont buy thier boyfriends onaholes. 3d women hate it when thier men fap to 2d or use onaholes.
What if the woman is 2D though?
what if the woman is a sentient alexa device strapped to a realdoll?
Then it is better than any woman
Rearranging my warehouse and found some old stock. I have a lot of work to do out there. Pretty sure all the good stuff is long gone.
I wish i had nice shelves like that.
>not display cabinets
Unless you dust on a weekly basis that's awful.
What's wrong with figmas?
A shame display cabinets are expensive. I keep mine on a pair of white bookshelves since they were cheaper. Unfortunately they might be too light to install some glass doors onto, unless I maybe mount the shelf to the wall.
Display cases can be expensive and hard to move without breaking.
New figma. Now I have the Berserk couple I always wanted. She looks perfect next to Guts.
Depends on their sex lives; some like it, some don’t. It doesn’t apply to all women.
Yeah, sure thing.
If "she" bought it for "her" bf, "she" probably self identifies as kinkyfucking degenerate. So, probably into other unsavory bullshit that makes "her" a waste of effort.
But, that is all considering this is a girl, and not some gay.
Aren’t we all degenerates at the end of the day? Eh, different strokes for different folks. I say it’s a wild card for each of their sex lives.
>we're all the same, guy! :^)
No, we are'nt. I dont get my kicks to used panties, stinky feet, or worse. Take your depravity elsewhere, this isnt the place.
What next, gender exists?
I just can't get over the joints, but that's just me.
Ikea detolf. Cheap display case. It's not fantastic but it does the job and looks half decent.
I've seen one before on their site. Their base price was acceptable (~70$), but the shipping cost could've covered another 3 cases. Nearest store was over 100 miles away.
Well, this is a nice surprise. Anybody else getting her?
You’re missing the point. I never said that we all have the same kinks, it’s just that you shouldn’t assume all people don’t like others buying whatever gets their rocks off. Just live and let live. Nice meme, by the way.
She's cute but I've never gotten into Dr. Slump.
>just live and let live
Perhaps, I am giving that gay couple a bit too much flak. But, I am getting really sick of people posting shit about thier kinks and gay shit on this board. There are a plethora of other, better suited, places for them to discuss what gets them off.
In antiquity, discussing taboos such as that in public led to being ostracized. Take a page from thier book, and keep your fucking sex life to yourself
Shame that toriyama got railroaded on DB when it started to pick up steam in jump. I would have loved for him to continue dr slump.
They're now offer Nendroid Yukatas bodies on good smile company's website. I already preordered.
Torn between her, these >>14495,
or the wedding figmas. She's adorable, but I want to cut down on collecting nendoroids since I have more of those than figmas and figures combined. Speaking of good smile, how long does SAL take to deliver goods to the US? Currently waiting on a figma, and last time I checked it's still dispatched.
When I bought my Your Name nendroids they were EMS and I think that's their usual shipping offering. EMS took four days. Not sure how long SAL would be for small packet but it could be a few weeks.
>It could be a few weeks.
If that's the case, then I don't mind the long wait.
Don't forget the accessories are sold separately.
>Don't forget the accessories are sold separately.
Oh I got them they were only ten bucks. Cute mad hatter.
>tfw someone recommended this place to me for video games
>its all anime shit
I haven't watched an anime in over 2 years and have a stupidly long backlog that I have no desire to get back to.
What's the difference between this place and /a/ btw?
Ask in the meta thread.
The racing queens are up for preorder! While both look great, I personally think Hana's outfit looks better with the little gold chains and additional ties.
Just received payment request from Amiami
Laxer moderation is what makes it different from /a/, this place got popular due to a lack of alternatives to /a/ on this site. Not sure why anyone would claim this place was for videogame discussion, talking about stuff like VNs is allowed though.
Left will end up leaning like a bitch.
I thought that was the joke. Is it really that tilted new?
Shame they had to ruin a near-perfect figure with bolt-ons (and I'm saying this as a boob lover). Then again, it's a fanservice line, so what else is new?
anyone of any other "recent" and "still avileable" nip artbooks to get ?
I buy a lot of Kamen Rider figures mostly. One real anime figure. Serval figma. I'm thinking of getting this Devilman figure with just how cool it looks.
>tfw no popura pantsu
That devilman fig looks really cool. Is that from good smile company?
Currently searching for pic related. Do you think good smile will rerelease aniki in honor of him?

>Bought the Chinese dress Mikoto figure a while back

>She's fucking dynamite in that dress

>They recently released a Mikoto black dress version
>No word of Kuroko Chinese dress
>No word of Kuroko anything
I preordered it. I'll probably pose her in her chanting pose with the hair lifted. It looks so good to me.
China dresses are China's greatest invention in its 5000 years of history so that's saying a lot.
They're one of the best/one of the few good things to have come out of China.
Part of why I really want that Kuroko to be a figure.
What do you guys think about artbooks? After seeing so many on Sad Panda, I decided to grab some myself. I just got my hands on a Neptunia one too. When it comes to figurines, I have 5 on preorder. These 2 are the closest to being released. The preorders for the drill haired loli ends on the 3rd of April.
Love these figures. My favorite one is the loli with the 2 swords. All I'm missing is the blue demon's daughter and the angel.
I preordered that too, but there's two other preorders in that order that I have to wait for.
>what do you guys think of art books?
Really nice to keep if you like the series or the artwork. Pic related we're my first two art books that I got, but the former leaves feeling a bit remorseful seeing that the series went downhill after that game and also being the cause of it. As for the latter, it's something that I look back and hope that I can get to that level of drawing and coloring.
>drill loli still up for preorder
Love her sculpt and color, but I feel a little conflicted about the price.
there are shit-ton of artbooks in sadpanda
Agreed, and it gives you a sample and reasons to put them in your collection.
I would have been perfectly fine if Fire Emblem ended with 10. Seeing the route it took, however, has lead me to discover other TRPGs I've missed out on.
>Love her sculpt and color, but I feel a little conflicted about the price.
That price is definitely brutal but it's a pretty big figure and the quality is amazing. It does help I have money to burn as I have very few bills to pay.
I try to upload some of the ones I get onto there. I know someone will appreciate it as much as I did.
>That price is definitely brutal but it's a pretty big figure and the quality is amazing. It does help I have money to burn as I have very few bills to pay.
Lucky. Post pics when you get it.
This Elizabeth figure finally got painted and will be up for pre-order on April 5th. It's coming out in June too which is pretty close. Now I'm probably set for the year with what I want to grab. I don't have really anything else to look forward to besides the Dark Elf Beast Tamer from Dragon's Crown. It will all depend on how her paint job looks. There is one in the link but it's not a good image.
I finished scanning and uploading that Nep artbook. It's on Sad Panda.
Not sure if I'm lucky but it's because I'm in the military. They handle a lot of your expenses in exchange for your service. It saves me a ton of money though. I'll definitely post pics when I get it.
Man, I really love that Jojo art. I think that artist did a whole Jojo artbook, too. I hope it doesn't cost too much, I might pick it up when I get some extra cash.
They did do a whole Jojo artbook, but as of right now, pre-orders are closed. http://rei17.storenvy.com/products/16346721-falling-stars
Bought the artbook by chance last year, and it came with stickers sheets which is a nice bonus.
Fuck, guess I'll wait until they open back up again.
>came with sticker sheets
Aw, man, I want stickers.
This shield girl is nice. I wonder when this is going up for reservation.
The stickers along with the artbook are pretty nice. Makes me wish they did a tribute artbook for the 7th Stand User fangame.
Need to get that just for the fact they made a robot out of it.
>Asirpa nendoroid, Jotaro nendoroid, and Nanachi nendoroid
Already pre-ordered Aspira, and planning to get the other two later, but man, these things can really outnumber your other figures. Kinda hoping they'll make jojo figmas, but that's likely not going to happen.
This is not what i meant with "pleasure bot" anon
Also meant for >>19619
If they did a 7th Stand User book, I'd buy it as soon as she put it up. I'd love to see the game's stands drawn in her art style.
>Faps at 400 bpm
It'll be great if they did a mini robo for the eggs too.
>I'd buy it as soon as she puts it up.
>I'd love to see the game's stands drawn in her artstyle.
Agreed, and I would also love to see the MCs drawn in her style as well.
>you can see her face
would hunt demons with her
Christmas in April. What's in the box? Some pre-owned figures; all A/B. Ryoumou, Meiko, and Miyako.
I know someone will want to see the lewd bust of Meiko so I included it even though I won't be displaying it with it on. All in all very happy with these new figures.
I just realized I'm half retarded and forgot to take some plastic off of Ryoumou. Here's how she'll be displayed.
Nice haul. There's a good amount of detail in that Ryoumou fig.
I'm not sure there are many buyfriends on this board but I too received a package today: pic related (Yukana Yame). She'll look great next to my Galko.
She's cute but I've never got into her source material. I have tea cup Rem next to my Galkos. I need to reorganize and probably get more shelves. Just got 13 volumes of manga yesterday and I don't have room for them and I'm started to get figures in front of figures now. Pics related is my set up now. I bought more Ikkitousen figures so I need to figure something out soon.
>She's cute but I've never got into her source material.
I haven't read the manga and the anime went to shit, but she was pretty good for at least the first half and I love gyaru. I'm still hoping someone releases a half-decent fig for Aihara Yuzu so I can have a collection rather than just a pair.
>I need to reorganize and probably get more shelves.
If you could move the electronics then you could do what the guide recommends and grab a glass cabinet and stick some LED lights on it. That gives your collection room to grow, and you might even be able to find space for the electronics by moving any other displayable stuff you might have from elsewhere and putting the electronics there. I don't know what kind of space you're dealing with though.
Thanks for the idea about moving my electronics. I was going about it the other direction in my head and that's a much better way of doing it. My roommate has a woodshop in the garage of our house so I've been talking to him about building a big cabinet to store the electronics that would fit under my wall hung TV since you posted. That would free up three of the shelves and give another surface to put figures on. That also solves my hideous wiring problem I have. He's going to wire the cabinet up to two circuits that will go to each of my battery back ups.so I can have the wires easily managed and hidden away from my cat that loves to chew on wires. I think this plan will work. Thank you so much for the advice. It was a breakthrough in thinking for me and my set up.
Glad I could help - even more than I'd intended to. I wish I could post a picture of my collection but I'm between houses right now so nothing is set up properly. I even have a petite fig of Serval-chan so our collections are fairly similar. I'm also waiting on pic related that I've preordered to be released next month.
I like the hair on that figure. I don't feel particularly strongly about that character and I missed the pre-order on her anyways. Still it is a very pretty figure. Anyone with the Galko school uniform figure has good taste in my opinion. I've only been collecting for a year and a half so I haven't moved while owning figures. I can only imagine how much of a pain and worry that would be.

>Anyone with the Galko school uniform figure has good taste in my opinion.
It is such a great figure, I don't have a big collection yet either (only collecting less than a year) but she's definitely the highest quality thing on it. For me, choosing a fig is a product of how much I like the character, how much I like the show, how much I like the figure, and price. So for example Yumeko Jabami's fantastic model offsets any issues I had with the show or the character (both of which I feel were pretty decent, at least compared to the average seasonal trash anyway).
The only advice I have or have been given for moving is to keep your boxes so that you can temporarily rebox the figures, particularly larger ones.
Also I just saw Serval is getting a new fig, though the pic looks kinda funky.
At least it is not the old lady version.
Ikkitousen haul is in. I'm pretty happy with it.
I got the Your Name scales when I thought they were out of reach. I'm very happy with them. I have them displayed above the nendroids.
Holy fuck, how do you people afford all this crap? Never mind the figures being pricey, but the fucking shipping costs as well. Since when does shipping cost the same as the goddamn fig?
For fucks sake, I can buy a bunch of military surplus from a finnish site and still only pay $10 shipping.
Where do you find the disposable income to buy all this? Tell me you lot are at least making $30-40/hr to be able to afford these so easily.
When the Japs started accepting food stamps the game changed anon. Get with it.
How many of you here buy doujin music? There's lots of pop, club, EDM, and house music I have to sort through before I can find anything I like. The comfier the better.
>TOHO BOSSA NOVA 7
If you want to get into more doujin music without buying it, then http://www.9tensu.com is a good site to find tons of doujin music. They usually post samples on the same page with the download.
Military life makes it so I don't have much to spend money on. Also I simply don't buy much else besides food. I don't go out much besides work and I don't need a care so I never bothered getting one. No bills from collage or cars really save you a lot of money. Pirate everything so I simply buy what I can't pirate or really want to support.

What's so jewish about them? Also would you recommend another site to get doujin music? The only other one I know of is http://hikarinoakariost.info/ but that covers anime music more than doujin music.
>buying doujin music
>in a way that only profits resellers and chinks, not the doujin circle itself
And that 9jew site has a godawful layout, along with nasty ads.
Are you okay, Ping Dong, or has the triple shift in the chinese workhouse gotten to you?
>in a way that only profits resellers and chinks, not the doujin circle itself
I'm not sure what you want me to do here. I visit the sites the circles put their music on and buy the CDs from them depending on what site I frequent or is simply better. How is that only profiting resellers and chinks? Especially if I'm buying digitally from Booth.pm and bandcamp. The only way I could possibly pay them in a better way is to fly over to the event and pay them in person.
>And that 9jew site has a godawful layout, along with nasty ads.
You still haven't explained why it's jewish or provided an alternative. People post MP3s there and provide a link to where you can buy it. What about this is jewish? Also I didn't even realize it had ads because I block most ads with No Script. I would agree that the layout isn't good.

I am likening you to a chinaman because of your obvious ESL writing and formatting.
Nip buyfags keep the dojin musiv scene afloat. I really dont want more of this culture to fall to the yellow jew
The only /animu/ related music CDs I own are the Detroit Metal City OST which is surpirisingly mostly classical music and the character CD from Monster Musume no iru Nichijou. The MonMusu CD came with the radio program as well.
I use that that as well but it doesn't have many of the CDs that I was looking for. Not only that but sometimes no one is seeding.
>I am likening you to a chinaman because of your obvious ESL writing and formatting.
No clue on what ESL writing and formatting is. This is the first time I've been critiqued for my writing on this board.
>Nip buyfags keep the dojin musiv scene afloat. I really don't want more of this culture to fall to the yellow jew
Which culture exactly? The nip otaku or western otaku culture?
Never bothered buying soundtracks to anime. I usually buy videogame soundtracks instead. Unlike certain game soundtracks, most anime soundtracks are uploaded on multiple sites. It's only hard to find older soundtracks.
I expected the soundtrack to have some kick ass metal but it was mostly classical music with about three minutes worth of ten second riffs at the end. If you're looking for a good place for mainstream anime music and not just doujinshi music cdjapan.co.jp is where I get my audio and imported manga. They have figures too but they're only competitive during a sale and don't have as wide of a selection as amiami.
CDjapan is great and definitely has one of the best selections. Though I usually order from Amazon.co.jp due to shipping costs. What really sucks is when you order some music only to realize there's a benefit you didn't get because you didn't order from a certain site.
Bonuses are nice but they're just that: bonuses. I tend to pre-order figures from Good Smile Company's shop because of bonuses but the base price is higher. Luckily EMS shipping is a flat 18 bucks so that makes it easier in the end. If there's no bonus though I find amiami has the better base price but the shipping is higher. Still amiami comes out a little cheaper and they have a bit higher selection over Good Smile Company's shop which while the dominant force in the figure industry doesn't cover everything.
>I tend to pre-order figures from Good Smile Company's shop because of bonuses but the base price is higher.
Same, not only for the bonuses, but most of the time GSC website is where you can get some exclusives like pic related. Finally got these two, and despite some of the glaring flaws like the joints, bride dress being a cast off, shoddy paint job, and some visible mold lines, these figmas are pretty nice.
Why is that boy laying his hands on Miho?
My taste tends to run toward some of the more popular items like I'm looking forward to the Lina Inverse Nendroid arriving. GSC's quality is usually pretty good. Sorry about the visible mold lines particularly. That is the worst.
that shit looks cute.
But Miho said she loved the girls in her team.

Ordered SHF Ranma after seeing her preowned for 32 USD. I hear that she’s a lot of fun to pose and has much better articulation than her male figure.
I really wanted to like Yame’s figure, but was disappointed after seeing the cleavage weld. How is she in-person?
I’ve been wanting that Galko figure for a long time; I have her Nendo and nurse figure (which looks better in-person than in photos; my only complaint is that her colors are a little too washed out).
>Browsing through amiami in hopes of finding a pre-own Billy Herrington figma or a Anzu Futaba figma

It's amazing that they can make almost anything into figurines and statues.
I have two cases of these somewhere.
>satania cannon = small
>satania lewds = well endowed
the only conclusion i can come to from this is that she draws her own lewds in a desperate attempt to be popular. pathetic
>I’ve been wanting that Galko figure for a long time
Keep checking preowned figures on amiami or mandarake. Actually just did a general search in google and it popped up on amazon for 171.55 American dollars. If you have the funds then definitely get it.
To add to that I searched for Max Factory Galko.
Yeah, she's my priority figure as soon as I collect this week's paycheck. Big gal, but with lots of admirable details. Thanks!
Yame-san isn't the greatest figure I own, but she's not terrible either. Her hair is at least shaded unlike pretty much anything Pulchra has put out, and her pose is at least a little bit dynamic. Mostly it's the size and droopiness of her bust that makes her look funny because her head looks small by comparison, but I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be that way on account of her bending over. I don't have any cleavage welds. Also her bracelets and handheld bow aren't glued in place, which I don't mind but may be an issue for some people.
Did you guys vote your favorite snow miku design for next winter yet?
they're all pretty good, wish #2 didn't look so bleached out. going with #5 myself
Ultimately went with #2 due to being heavily disappointed with the cast off gown for the wedding figma. Not only that, but I also kinda want to see if they can replicate the translucent colors from the #2 design onto the figma and nendoroid. The current Snow Miku's design is pretty disappointing.
I got my Kukuris in just a little bit ago. I had to have two and it's not like Mahoujin Guru Guru doesn't need the money.
nice taste, did they have the alternate costume?
I wish. If they put out an alternate body style I'll pick it up. I would really like that cat dress in your pic related. It's super cute.
That's an interesting placement of hot glue. What even is this figure?
>At Erohobi hosting in Akihabara, Rui's first show at Decorate of Puters will be on display ✌︎ ('ω' ✌︎) Including the foundation is very powerful ~
What a slutty piece of plastic.
Maybe but she has to stand in that awkward position forever
>Preordered P5 Anne figma
>see this and feel conflicted due to having 10+ nendoroids already including the Asirpa one.
One hand it releases on October, but damn these little fuckers can outnumber a person's collection.
but does it smell nice?
I've had to seriously raise my standards for nendos because they're so much easier to buy than scale figs due to their price and cuteness.
If you're into that out of the box PVC scent, then sure.
Same, and looking back at it, I'm a little disappointed that they didn't include other things like a fishing rod or Nanachi's stew, and the GSC bonus is just a stand with the Nanachi signature.
scratch and sniff nanachi nendos when
is there any articulated figure of Nia from Xenoblade Chronicles?

How about a figure with voice action?

Does anyone buy blue-rays?
It's a good way to support the industry via buying imports from Japan. Also, the blu ray version of anime tends to redo scenes that had QUALITY animation and other errors.

Also blue-ray has extras that I like
eg. textless OP/ED and behind the scenes interviews
What the hell is that second one?
Good Smile Company took my money for the Nendoroid Nagisa Furukawa so that should be shipping soon. I also bought Dagashi Kashi volume 11 which comes with probably a shitty figure and Monster Musume volume 14 today. The manga is shipping via DHL so I'm guessing either Monday or Tuesday is when I'll be getting them. I'll post pictures when I get them all.
i just dont get it, the game has tons of waifus, and all we get is a Pyra statue…
What I'm currently eyeing at. Little armory figma releases next year, really want a JJBA fig but getting mixed messages from people who buy stuff from Medicos, and the three waifubots are pretty cute.
Medicos figures tend to fall apart easily. The Jojo ones are particularly inconsistent. Especially on detail. Do not expect an actual figure to look as good as that promotional image.
>Medicos figures tend to fall apart easily.
Break as in the material used for the figure is brittle as fuck or that the joints give out in time? If it's one or both of those things, then I'm going to drop my interest on buying the fig, and just pray to good that good smile releases a figma NEVER EVER or the god damn nendoroid.
>The Jojo ones are particularly inconsistent. Especially on detail. Do not expect an actual figure to look as good as that promotional image.
Will keep that in mind. Just recently saw an image of the Gyro fig, and that was terrible.
whats the name of the little ones? are they like the Desktop army ones?
>Are they like the desktop army ones?
They're in the same product line.
The material isn't brittle but the joint are pretty shit. The Jojo ones aren't consistent in quality but some have been shown to pop off in various places.
The worst offender was actually a Tokyo Ghoul figure. That one just completely sucked. Loose joints popping off everywhere.
tfw all those figurines are expensive as fuck. guess I'll never buy one
you could always buy used ones, i think there is a website for used figurines looking for a good home.
I already checked ebay for used ones. Not much cheaper. What's the website for used ones? I'd like to have a nice Chiya like >>6135 but that's 150€. Even the smaller ones are 50-80€. They look like good quality but still that's too much.
I like miniature painting, are there figurines that you can paint yourself?
e2046.com is the most prolific garage kits site on the market. If you want good cheap figures you're not afraid to paint that's the place to go.
All my recent arrivals for this month.
Expecting even more plastic models arriving soon. The fa/tg/uy in me is happy, but holy fuck did I splurge.
I just wish GSC, Maxfactory, or QuesQ made an Okuu figure.
With how expensive these figurines are I think the best way is probably a 3D printer - or it will be in 2-3 years. I could imagine that in the future you can buy a high quality blueprint with say 3-4 runs for 20€ and then print them yourself. Or just pirate it.
>Joints are pretty shit and Jojo ones aren't consistent in quality but some have been shown to pop off in various places.
That's concerning since I have the tendency to change the poses on my figures from time to time or to mess around with it. I'll probably gamble with my luck on a medicos figure later on in the future, but for now, I'm just going to hold off and buy a static figure of a JJBA character instead of a poseable one.
>The offender was actually a Tokyo Ghoul figure. That one just completely sucked. Loose joints popping off everywhere.
Don't really care much about TG aside from the salt, but that sucks about the joints being not up to standards.
>What's the website for used ones?

You might want to have a blacklight handy.
Where to buy onahole?
Never owned one before.
you wouldnt download a figurine right, anon?
I would if 3D printers weren't so shit.
I would. Most of them are small series that sell out anyway.
The guide here is pretty good. >>31669
If you want a recommendation for a decent starter onahole I recommend the "Innocent little sister" by toysheart. It's a classic and it can take a beating while you're still learning the ins and outs of use and upkeep. Also get a USB warmer, just don't get the cheap shitty ones that overheat or aren't waterproof, read reviews before getting one. And for fucks sake use some hydrogen peroxide to clean the thing unless you want your dick to fall off. Either way read the guide before taking the plunge, and don't order anything with a nude loli on the box if you live in Cuckanada or the United Kuckdom.
I would recommend used onaholes, they are way cheaper, satan.
AMD want the otaku dollars
>corporate whore pillows
Isn't that what Miku is for?
Why not a daki? even M$ had a daki.
Got my manga in. The Hotaru figure special edition with the manga is more like a bust and I'm not sure about her mouth. Sorry that I don't have sheets on my bed right now.
Do nips even build gaymen PCs? I can't imagine any of them are lining up to buy pozzed AAA garbage from the west on steam.
PC gaming otaku in Japan are a mirror image of ours. CoD and the like are considered hardcore shooters, and a nerdy interest. It makes sense in a way, we both see each others popular junk as strange oddities to our own culture. Compare it to someone in America who buys every Dragon Quest game.
>tfw some otaku is going to play Battlefield V and find the ugly one armed girl in WW2 to be refreshing in comparison to the cute girls of Strike Witches and Kancolle

Hope we are not dealing with prudish moderation here.
There's no nudity and even if there was you can just spoiler it.
No i took a shitty picture with my face in the reflection
pic related is the model
Being born with an undersized head seems like an unfortunate birth defect.
Her head only looks small compared to her giant, heaving breasts. His head you can barely see in the reflection. I can't even make out his face.
yeah her head is normal size when you go by the 8 head rule.
I put her away for now since she wont fit in my current cabinets
You could always put her on a shelf. It means more dusting and it does take up wall space but it's much more variable than a cabinet.
Thanks for the follow up. We must be forever vigilant.
Figure maker ASPIRE has rolled out a new replica of Mumei sporting her episode 7 Tanabata gear.
The Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress heroine wears a haori jacket along with her usual gear, and has her hair up in rare twintails. The 220mm figure comes pre-painted, and includes a display stand.
Interchangeable pieces allow Mumei to be displayed without her jacket, showing off her Kabaneri scar.
Does anyone have any experience with the proxy services?
I specifically want to buy books in Japanese, but the sellers on jp amazon don't seem to ship outside of Japan.
I have no idea what I am getting myself into.
I get my Japanese import books and manga from cdjapan.jp .They have a pretty robust supply but if you're looking for out of print stuff you're going to have to use a proxy which I'm not experienced in.
>check what countries they ship to

This is the real hell right here.

I'm looking into White Rabbit Express that is mentioned in the wiki now, but I have to wonder if someone else is better than them.
At least they can send a package to me.
Is it something you can not buy from mandarake?
I checked that site just now and it's sold out, unless I'm seeing something wrong.

Well, I guess I'm a retard.
Here is my cutest girl as thanks.
No worries anon. Creatively searching Mandarake turns up all sorts of treasure. The filters to the left help a lot. Like hide sold out.
Some times they also spell things completely wrong in English, change the title slightly or only list it in moon. Searching by moon runes usually turns up the best results. If something is sold out you can add a notification so when it comes in they will email you. cute girl payment accepted

Any good tips for putting together plastic models and painting them before I jump in?
WonFes is creeping up on us and more figs are starting to get shown off before the event starts next week. There are plenty of figs I'm waiting on but I bought these recently. Glad Tooru is finally getting a fig in her maid outfit but damn is it expensive (around 16k JPY).
Also Solaris is having a 10th anniversary sale.
I would just look up a guide on painting plastic models. There are most likely vids of it too.
How reliable is Solaris?
They're pretty good. Got my Seaport Hime figure from them without any issues.
That's good. They have some pretty good shipping prices for sure.
Looks like pre-orders are closing soon for this figure. You have until the 26th to order it from Play-asia.
Also I hope they show off this Amakuni figure for Wonfes.
Haven't used them recently but they were pretty reliable when I did before.
>First image figurine
Jesus, either you have a good paying job or neetbux.
Jesus fuck, the price went up? I got her new for $356 (including shipping) from Solaris back in May.
Playmoya has her at $387 + shipping now.
Solaris really made her price insane now. $617 plus shipping.
Man, I lucked out.
My job is alright. $20/hr pretax out in the south.
When Goodsmile was first selling her, she was around $180. I'm still waiting for them to make the best abyssal. Probably NEVER EVER since people are moving to Azur Lane in mass and leaving Kancolle behind.
WonFes is a week away! Have you filled out your bingo sheets yet?
>leaving Kancolle behind
That makes me feel a bit sad for some reason
It managed to get one non-F2P video game that isn't sold anywhere anymore and two table-tops, not many F2P games managed to do that.
So it won't be forgotten at least.
I'm not really anticipating anything except for that one Amakuni figure of the brown demon girl in the chinese dress and the Alice (Queen's Gate) figure from Wing.
>Leaving behind I-19 and abyssals
I don't want to leave this sinking ship.
Bought a F-ism vol. 20 girl red and a Ritopuri little princess.
It came today.
I used the Ritopuri.
I PAID $200 SHIPPING FOR THIS?
Why have nips been going after chinkshit like Azure Lane and Girls Fronline lately?
Because they're prepping for another rape of Nanking.
Another mass rape would definitely benefit the chinks, since they'll receive superior nip genes.
People stayed with Kancolle because it was popular and had cute girls. Mind you it barely had any gameplay. Azur Lane actually has gameplay while also having cute girls. It's just like how Granblue is being left behind when it comes to what artists draw. Azur and FGO are the new semen demon machines while Granblue and Kancolle are being left behind.
None of these games have gameplay really, it's just a case of dropping the old in favor of the new.
>Granblue is being left behind
Last time I checked, that mobage game seems to be doing well.
>when it comes to what artists draw.
Meant for >>36492
But Azur, Granblue, and FGO definitely have gameplay. I've only played Azur and it was for about 2 weeks. It was okay but definitely not worth the grind. Meanwhile I've heard FGO doesn't have good gameplay but that was when it first came out. Not that I disagree with you but I think if Azur was simply a chinese knockoff it wouldn't have pulled people like it did.
Not mine, just wanted to post it.
not thicc enough :^)

got this from a con yesterday
How much did you pay?
I haven't gone to cons in years because all the vendors sold shit at ridiculous markup and there was a good chance most of the shit there was bootlegs. Well, that and I couldn't take all the shonenbabbies and dubfags that swarm those places now.
>Actual mangaka and seiyuu have a small handful of people going to their panels

I only go to cons to try and find figures that i missed when i was poor since i just order things i want now. And the shitty cons in my city dont bring any real talent other than shitty dubbers and "proffesional"cosplayers
People care about english-dub voice actors? That's news to me…..
These are the kind of faggots that Funimation hires for their cancerous dubs.
Probably those Grarkada-esque people who only watch anime if it was licensed by an American company.
by the way…
is buyfag.moe never going to be updated?
not that the basics need any update, but would be nice to know it isnt dead
my usual store doesnt have the display cases that i bought from them years ago anymore so i bought a detolf and some lights. then i promptly fucked up the wiring angles
i need a glass or plastic riser for meiko anyone got a good suggestion on where/what to get?
I have a coworker that subscribes to funimation's simuldub service. He refuses to watch anime with subs because the subtitles are "too distracting." I imagine that's the kind of fag that would care about funi nobodys.
For those curious about what came out during WonFes, a list was made that shows most of the major things that were shown or are coming out.

The box they sent it in looked like it was going to fall apart at a moment's notice, but it was sturdy and the books inside were protected with bubble wrapping and fat paper.
WonFest 28: http://whl4u.jp/wh28/gallery/en/#/ → 1000 Nendos and beyond!
This came in the mail today.
Do any of you guys collect figs or figmas of your least favorite characters for the sake of completion or do you simply ignore that one character and buy something else?
It's too expensive to buy for completion's sake not to mention the display space. Buy only what you enjoy. If that means only one figure a series then make it a good figure.
I only buy a figure if it's a character I particularly like and the figure looks good.
No sense buying a figure you won't enjoy looking at.
I once thought about doing that with Alter Strike Witches figures since I have half of them anyway. In the end it's just a bad idea, once your collection reaches a certain point you run out of space for them and you have that much more to dust when the time comes. You may as well just get figures you like.
No, but ones I'm ambivalent towards yes, if they're cheap. It's really painful when a character I like has no merchandise period though.
Thanks for the responses, and I made my decision on not getting pic related since I didn't really give a shit about her and felt that the game went downhill when she came into play. I'll just stick to waiting on Anne, Ryuji, Yusuke, and maybe Futaba and Haru, since those were the teammates I liked in the game.
Nice one. Garupan merchandise still going strong despite no new anime until 2019-06

Any nendo fans here?
It's up to #969, not counting variants.
I should be getting my Maika from Blend S nendroid on Monday. Will post pictures. On the fence about buying Chio.
I have a bunch of nendos and I don't even like them. They're too fidgety and they look stupidly small on my DETOLF next to my scale figures. The worst part is that even though I've made a conscious effort, I can't stop buying them because so many characters are getting nendo releases but no figgies.
I have all but one of my nendo on a long shelf in front of my manga and all my scales but three on another set of shelves. Pretty soon I'm building a cabinet for my electronics which will free up two and a half shelves for more scales and might make it possible to put another shelf up on the two tracks I have for that set of shelves for even more scales. I just need to build it and I'll have so much space for figgies.
I don't want my nendos to collect dust though. What'd be ideal is if I could get some tiered risers small enough for nendos and to fit on the same shelf, then I could position them sequentially higher like they're sitting on bleachers. Unfortunately I haven't really been able to find any good risers in Australia.
Search around for acrylic display risers in your country. I just measured the base for one of my nendroids and it's 60 mm squared so keep that in mind.
GSC plans nendo way ahead:
This one is ready now for pre-order but only out in 2019-01
Got my Maika nendroid earlier than expected. Translation: the ketchup writing on the omelette rice is ブタ, buta, or pig.

tfw you find out that they make life sized figurines
And they cost more than a cheap car?
Very much so. A 1:1 of an adult figure would run you $40,000. Dollars not yen.
Now I want to see a life sized Yamato figure.
Lunatic mode: Have her scaled to be the same length as the actual Yamato.
So we're basically in "weeaboo swiss banker" territory here?
Think Manhattan loft territory.
>tfw no $70,000 1:1 statue of Roberta in my bedroom
I just checked, this Renge is only $6200.
Company that makes them: http://www.figurex.jp/
Rem is only 1,480,000 yen. Who needs a yacht when you can have waifus?
How about a yacht full of life size figurines?
I'm waiting for the Lina Inverse nendo to ship next week. It's the first nendo I bought in a while.
I buy too many nendos that i havent even taken out of their boxes.
I should have ordered the lina one to put beside megumin though. My local store might get some in though
I'm trying to figure out how to display my nendos. They're too short and small for my DETOLF even if I use the risers I have. I'm thinking that since i need to raise my DETOLF off the ground so I can properly utilise the bottom shelf, I should buy something for it to sit on which can display the nendos.
>this much BS
Azur Lane may be the more popular game; I have no idea, really, but artists prefer Kancolle by a massive margin. At the latest comiket, 93 or 94, in the rankings for number of doujin circles, Kancolle was number 2 at around 2k, and Azur Lane was near the bottom at 600. I much prefer the design of the Kancolle boats. Cuter and more charming.
I like Kancolle because some of the quotes and designs have a degree of historical reference.
Also abyssals and cute designs.
who was number one?
Lina Inverse has shipped. This is not a drill.
Best not too. Latest doujin shows that fucking him would turn you into a girl Will pic related get a figure of her own?
Too much suffering in that doujin for me i couldnt even fap to it at the end
That's because it's not mere porn, it's deconstruction of porn.
I don’t think anyone can fap to it unless they can withstand the despair or find that sort of thing erotic.
I-i did it by reading a nip version of it but after reading the translated version i deleted that from my collection
>I-I did it by reading the nip version.
>deleted it after reading the translated version
At least you learned your lesson and cried both ways.

She's in! One bone of contention is none of the hands could hold the Ragna Blade which is really disappointing. Maybe I'm just retarded and someone else can point me in the right direction. I'm displaying here in her casting pose because I love her hair floating like that.
I'm thinking of getting some of the Girls und Panzer model kits but they require painting. Is paining models difficult? I would hate to ruin them.
You won't ruin them. Worst case scenario is you have to paint that part of the model again. It can be very rewarding though, I encourage you to give it a go. It is also a bit of a rabbit hole though as you find yourself wanting to get more paints and washes and so on.
Thanks, I think I'll start on a traditional model like a tanke for practice.

>Is painting models difficult?
If you're new to it, then yes. Though in the end, it's all about trial and error. You might want to watch some tutorials on how to handle model kits to get a gist of it. Good luck anon.
Would you a Misato? 12800yen. Out 2018-11.
>Do you buy manga?
Yeah just few of them that I deem worthy of being in my library
>Translated or not
Not, I prefer the original language when it comes to foreign works and adaptions but sometimes I can't speak the tongue so I'll do my best to find the best translations (for example Meditations).
> imported or from your friendly neighborhood store
Imported but I think mega cities like LA have some stores that have pure untranslated manga.
>I slowly stopped buying any at all
I can understand your pain, I keep my shit hidden behind classics, philosophy books and comics, I don't want people to see I read manga.
YOU CAN'T RUN FROM THE INEVITABLE GAY DEATH, FAGGOT.
I do but not much. I want to get more but the problem is that it is hard to find good manga that is not made into an anime or will not be in the future. So usually I buy manga of aniem I have seen and enjoyed like Girls und Panzer and Girls last Tour or the other kind I get is things like Touhou. I want to get Upotte!!! and some others but they have not been translated.
The most important question is, what do their panties look like?
Kino and Hermes nendroid is in. Had to shave down the prop for Kino as her hole was too tight to go in. Displaying her riding Hermes like in the last pic.
>her hole was too tight to go in
I thought I heard a faint gasp as I tried to put it in.
Meanwhile, in the dark corner of my room. I decided to take pics of my new 3 new figures. More coming in the next post.
I was on and off about getting this Berserker fig for months but finally got it. Glad I did, it's very cute.
That Hachiroku is extremely cute. The temptation to get her is strong.
Alright, new patch came. Also got two of my gundams put together since last time.
Don't want to fuck around with paints or glue until the humidity dies down.
She's actually pretty heavy. All that clothing is like a brick on her.
Holy shit, Graf Zeppelin is on amiami again.
About half the price that i've seen everywhere else.
>my new 3 new figures
So I tried out Japamart.
+ They are quick to respond and their site is easy to use.
+ The packaging is solid and nothing came in with scratches or bents.
+ They're forwarding service is pretty cheap and can actually be cheaper than BiginJap depending on how much your stuff weighs.
- Assigning your credit/debit card to the site can be a pain in the ass. Once you do though then that's the end of that problem.
- You can't alter or check the orders you make. You send the request (best time to do this is when everything actually ships) based on what's in said package (not the total items you send in multiple packages). Once you do that there's no way of checking the order you made until they contact you.
Overall I like the site and plan on using it again. I think it's best for ordering in a small amount. About less than 10 items and not for bulk.
Not when it kills your wallet. Of course I leave enough money to keep myself healthy in case of any emergency happens. Still, Comiket 94 cleaned my account as I got over 200 doujins and several music CDs. I plan to scan plenty of them. Aside from that, I am waiting on these figures. The drill hair one is supposed to come out next month.
Can recommend. Seems like you have this one has another base tho.
That's plenty. Do you store them in bookcases or do you have shelves to put them in? I've been considering on buying a keychain from pixiv's BOOTH thing, but I'm not sure if they ship to burgerland or I have to use a proxy.
>Do you store them in bookcases or do you have shelves to put them in?
Both. I put them in a plastic sleeve and then a bookshelf. I keep my favorites on the shelf and preserve the rest in a box.
>I've been considering on buying a keychain from pixiv's BOOTH thing, but I'm not sure if they ship to burgerland or I have to use a proxy.
They don't ship to burgerland so you'll need to use a proxy/forwarding service. I use WhiteRabbitExpress as a proxy service. Very reliable. If I were to use a forwarding service, then it would most likely be Japamart. If the weight of everything is calculated to be more than 5 dollars, then go with BiginJapan instead. If you don't want to experiment with these companies and want a smooth and easy experience then WhiteRabbitExpress is what you should go for. They also have a forwarding service too.
Sadly, the artist doesn't sell these keychains or stickers online. Only at local events. Here's his Pixiv. I would definitely buy the Ran keychain.
Thanks for the tips anon. I was looking into proxy services, but ended up using white rabbit since tenso made things complicated. Pic related is what I got.
Those look really cute. If he made cirno and put it up Booth I would get it.
Curvy bikini figurine by ban is 17k yen. *ouch*
>Top shelf full of books while other figs are below it
>Top shelf looks like it's going to cave in
I live dangerously. Seriously though It's a bit bent but not bending anymore than that. The shelves are going to be replaced and the books moved to a different wall shelf when I put that in. Then that rack of shelves will be nothing but figures.
Moved houses, this is my new figgie setup. Nendos still awaiting a fresh display. Rem's ribbon fell off in the move but it's a simple matter of gluing it back on. Sorry for mediocre pics, I am the opposite of a good photographer.
Looking good fam. Though I wonder if any figgies on the top shelf will be visible from an average height humans' perspective, especially considering that the shelf is opaque.
Thanks man. Obviously you have good taste in figures. Also I love the little Boss plushy. The pics turned out good though.
My set up is a work in progress. I have enough vertical room for another shelf so I'm going to cut some boards to size in my shop and replace the prefab boards I got with stronger ones that look lighter and add that 7th shelf. The Bag End landscape miniature will go on the top shelf along with any other miniatures I pick up down the road. First thing I need to do is make another shelf on the perpendicular wall above my guitars for the books. It will add more space for books and solidify the rack of shelves for figures. I'm working on it.
I do not know why the pics are on their side. I posted it first and the thumbnails were on their side so I rotated the pics and now the thumbnails work but I've only just noticed that when I hover it, the images rotate. What the actual fuck.
Thanks though. In case it's not clear, the tail next to Bossu is Tohru's from Kobayashi Maid Dragon. I'm not planning on leaving the plushies there though, may put some manga there instead or god knows what else will come into my head.
I duno how you endure having your figgies not behind glass. You already have a fair few, and as you grow more dusting will become a full-time profession.
I don't paint models, but if I did set out to learn, I'd practice on a few cheap ones you wouldn't mind throwing away before setting out to paint any that are expensive and going into your collection.
Not exactly animu but I'm pretty happy with it. Came with a shit load of accessories but I prefer Link riding his horse.
Big month this month. Getting 790 dollars worth of stuff this month if nothing is delayed.
bought a ticket for an Ichiban Kuji at the local weeb store.
Hoped for a little bikini figurine, but this beach towel ain't bad either
Really want a Mai but she looks a bit funny and is only 1/8. Someone validate my opinion so I stop feeling so guilty for not buying her.
Fig looks a bit plain, and you might want to wait it out since a bunny version of her is coming soon.
Holy fuck am I reading this right? How am I going to fit this in my DETOLF? Who is the manufacturer?
>Holy fuck am I reading this right?
You bet. https://myfigurecollection.net/item/676272
Freeing whose done a bunch of bunny girl figs like pic related
So she's probably going to be close to 40cm tall, even taking into account her posture. Not even sure how I'd display that.
A bigger issue is the price. The Kotobuyika figgie is less than 10k yen on Amiami, I think this is likely to be 20k yen based on a quick perusal of other 1/4 figures' prices. I suppose since I didn't buy any figgies last season coz Jashin was too small and overpriced I can spare the funds for a 1/4 bunny girl who is actually a bunny girl in her own series though.
just got the payment request for these two cuties
Izetta 1/7 got delayed to December changing the most expensive month this year from October to December. Five figures each now.
