OK, so, we'll dedicate this thread to all the stuff coming out. Figures and goods that are being announced, things we plan to buy, or things we just plan to drool over.

Preorders just went up for an extremely sexy Motoko Kusanagi by Kaitendo. Scheduled for a late-July release and sculpted by Tsuyoshi Takahashi, this is an extremely Masamune-faithful rendition... and I will not be able to afford her, sirs.

the latest pics aren't looking so well, so I'm glad I didn't get caught in preordering it. bought this one instead for 1/5 price, including shipping.

Gathering's 2B knock off is pretty damned good, especially for such a small fig.

A while back a lot of these sort of things were popping up at sears too. As it turned out, people were using the sears website as something of a store front like amazon to sell things not shipped by sears. I believe walmart has something similar for their online store.
That said, I was at a target the other day and saw Nendoroid and figma for sale, but this was limited to the likes of zelda and overwatch. GSC has been pandering to western tastes for a while now since that's where the big bucks are so it's not surprising to see their products making their way to western store shelves, but that said I don't think we'll be seeing flying pantsu moe figures hitting brick and mortar shelves any time soon.
>> No. 3685 [Edit]

Huh...
Does GSC make english boxes or something for these supermarket nendoroids? Or they are untouched?
>> No. 3686 [Edit]
>>3685
Same exact boxes/packaging. On modern day figma boxes more than half the text is already in English anyway. Speaking of, It was a bit sad to see but someone ripped apart the box for a genji figma. Worth noting also that they don't seem to keep many in stalk at any given time. It's not like your cape shit action figures that shops might have 5-10 of each on a rack/shelf. With these nendorid and figma there's just 1-2 of each, so they kind of stick out.

WOW tohnobros that was really lucky week for me.
I got this ps2, pink ps2 slim and psone (and also old black xbox 360 that I don't really care about, moreover I don't have power supply for it. I will probably clean it and sell it if I ever get a chance to see if it works) with one original ps1 pad, 2 ps1 analog pads (one doesn't work) and dualshock 2 in really shitty condition for 55$.
Trick was pawnshop that made auction for it didn't checked if they work and they sold it as potentially broken. They also tagged their auction really poorly and had whatever photos. So I risked a little.
I'm actually glad they didn't check them out, because I found small bonus inside FAT ps2 disk driver - dvd with Resident Evil 4! And of course there would be bigger traffic in auction if they didThere was none btw.
I also bought FMCB card this week and I'm waiting for my ps2hdmi adapter from china.

And I also got all these 6 Strike Witches figmas with accessories and stands for 40$. Their condition isn't best, some are a little dirty and Eila looks like she crapped her pants. I think someone tired to glue her legs to main body together, idk I will take better look on all figures tonight and try to clean them.
They all were on one auction too and also really poorly tagged (They didn't even have "figma" in title or "strike witches" etc.), I was probably only person who saw that auction and I came across it by mistake really. So I had no problem getting it by minimal price. Before I bid I wrote email to seller and it came out that she was some mother selling her son shit (I hope her son is ok), so she was clueless what that exactly was.

I don't really collect stuff so I'm pretty thrilled right now, those are my first figmas! I also have more ps2 now than I know what to do with. I bought sliver slim ps2 2 weeks ago and didn't plan to buy more, I just couldn't not resist when I saw that auction, I

Might as well make a figma thread.

I'm about to get this figma (within two-three months, probably). It's still in 'preorder' because I preordered something else along with it.

Depends on your country if you're selling online, and general area if you're planing on selling offline. I think you'd have a hard time finding buyers for these rather niche items. If you're dead set on doing it however, your best bet would be selling at cons where you can sell for decent markups and offload some units as long as they're from more popular and/or established series.

I highly doubt the money you would make would offset the cost of travel.

Possibly replying to the wrong person but yes, they likely wont make a fraction of their expenses back. Flights to and from japan, at least for me, would be $1,000+. I used to sell figs at a decent pace, but even on my best months I was making maybe $100 in profit. That's not enough to pay for a trip to japan, not enough to live on, it would barely cover my electric bill.


btw, I don't really see how this is related at all to figma. Really should have been given it's own thread.

Indeed: many of these are meant for collecting purposes, not to be solved again and again. I just solved it once (pretty easy) and that's about it.

Since there doesn't seem to be one per say exactly.
how about a thread just for general photos of figs?

bonus points if you took the pic yourself.

Back when the alter strike witches came out I thought they were awesome but couldn't see myself dropping the coin on them. Now they're at bargain bin mark down prices so I got a couple, but getting more than one at a time seems like a mistake because holy heck I forgot how big those boxes can be. Really jacks up the shipping costs

From my experience, the most importat thing is to make it look it look like the dolls are actual persons on the setting, rather than toys on some rare environment. Follow your intuitions on that regard and you should be fine.

Started working on this the other day. It's not an offical GUP item, just a generic m33 from testors I got for like $10.

Funny thing is I think the promo images seen here http://myfigurecollection.net/item/137279 for the Platz version are also just using the testors version. noticed it from the squared part at the front bottom which is supposed to be round on the real deal. also the version in the anime has container boxs in the back which aren't on the testors tank. Finally there's the weird part that kinda sticks out behind the turret.

What do you guys do with old stuff that you don't really like anymore, or possibly bought really early on for cheap? I can't sell them on craigslist or anything, but I'd feel bad throwing them away. I'm only really concerned about the crab one but at some point I want more like the 1/7th size ones in the back, and I think it would look nice to have all my figures be similarly sized.

It's put into a care package (with manga, old DVDs and flash drives filled with downloads) and dropped off at a nearby orphanage for Christmas. They really do appreciate the stuff, and it makes me feel better knowing I've found a good home for my figs.
