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.

Apparently, there is also a Kainé figure in the making:

Maybe we can even dream of a Zero fig someday?

>1/7 at most (like the previous Alphamax Sora
That makes a great deal of sense. I find 1/8 are, generally, a bit too small but a 1/7 could work. Unfortunately you're right when it comes to the pricing. I feel your pain in terms of space; I'm also quickly running out and need to invest in some new cabinets soon.

I always wondered what a realistic situation would be to use anime patches, then I bought a second-hand Army jacket which has velcro patches all over it and then I knew.

For those who have larger collections, or anyone really, have you ever come to regret buying in the first place? Be it due to a change in environment or even the hassle of being in the possession of so many physical objects. Has collecting ever caused you any trouble?
>> No. 3349 [Edit]
Yes, a few months ago, when family issues almost made me leave my house (and all I could have paid for was a single room with a bed, a little table and a chair). Fortunately I didn't have to go in the end; but I might sometime; I have several large collections, but worst case scenario I'm just taking with me my laptop and my Dollfie Dream.

About what shall became of my things when I'm dead, that's as inconsequential for me as my own body's fate.

I regret a few of my earlier purchases when I didn't know what I was doing, but apart from that I'm quite content. Thankfully I live by myself and rarely, if ever, have anyone around so they never cause an issue.
>> No. 3359 [Edit]
It is bothersome to keep figures when moving. I only have about enough to fit into a decent sized box so not many, but still it is just one more box till something pushes you over. If I had to move long distance again I would have to plan ahead and sell. In places like I'm staying in space isn't easy to come by.
>> No. 3373 [Edit]
I have about six large boxes of figures now. I've had most of them packed up due to being in an almost constant state of moving or having to be ready to move due to various circumstances for the last five years. It is kind of a pain to move them, but I've gotten used to it. Now if I could just reach a point where I can put them out on display again that would be pretty good.

What did your parents do when you bought your first dakimakura? I really want to buy one. But I think they would be too sad if I did, they really want me to socialize (does this go to /soc/?). They say this I should have fun like other guys my age (19 yrs old). I can't convince them that I have fun. So what did your parents do?

Both of my parents accepted it with varying degrees of disappointment. I think my mom is a little embarrassed when she sees it. My dad doesn't really care.

It's the best purchase I've ever made.

What's the best kind of light for displaying figs?
I've heard some kinds of lights can really fade the color on figures and ruin them forever, daylight namely.
and some lights, mostly the yellowish ones, seem to be able to stain some white surfaces and turn them yellow in my experience (I've got a piss yellow Dreamcast which I think is becuase of my lights).
I was thinking of using a bunch of white LEDs to light up my fig case, would this be safe?
Mainly I was going to just have a group of them at the top, possibly cover it with something to defuse the light, and was also contemplating running wires down the edges of the display case and placing a single white LED in each corner.

is this a good or bad idea?

Why not share example of figs + this thingies? I have no clue what you're talking about in practice.
>> No. 3367 [Edit]
LED lightbulbs are just 3 or 4 of those stuck in a lightbulb shell and do the same job. They can be bought in any supermarket and fit a standard lamp connection.
That said cfls will do pretty much the same thing.
Any lightbulb that doesn't get hot is fine I would have thought? Is there some advantage i'm not seeing?
>> No. 3368 [Edit]
I think the scenario of LEDs being used would be in a display case, to illuminate the inside. Having it that close won't hurt them, is what the argument is I believe. Having an incandescent or cfl bulb near figures might be risky considering how hot they get. If they are not up close, and just used in a lamp, they should be fine. LED strips can also be hidden more easily and mount well in cases and such.

10 watt and below cfl don't get hot enough to warrant concern in colder climates but I see your point. LED strips would make a very cost effective way of lighting any glass door cabinet.

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.

Thanks. I'm glad she got a re-release and I was able to snag her. She's definitely one of the best looking figures I own. She also weighs a ton but I think that is due to her hair.

I've been thinking I should give more back to the site here, and figured a give away might not be a bad idea. I've got a number of figs I haven't been able to sell from my shop, and a few from my collection that could use new homes so this seemed like the most logical thing to do. If things go well maybe we'll be able to give out better prizes in the future.

So simply put, once every month I'll give out a fig (or figs) to a randomly selected winner. All you have to do is post your steam id in this thread, and if you win I'll message you asking for shipping details. I'll select the winner on the 22nd.

Why steam ids you might ask? It's a simple way of keeping people from cheating is all. TC has no user accounts and plenty of people here change IPs all the time (which would be an issue for confirming winner identities and make it easy for people to cheat), not to mention we have no PM system here. meanwhile most people aren't gonna have more than one or two steam accounts (with content on them at least).

Package came in safe. Thanks Tohno.

I wonder if the rumours are true and more tape does prevent lazy customs officers from opening things? Most of the figma I've ordered over the years get searched. I used to keep the customs tape, but I ended up having too much of it, became pointless to collect.

Sorry the picture is so ass, I tried to jury rig a decent light setup and I shake like like a blender on high when holding a camera.
The Rei is really pretty, amazing how far painting has come over the decades, she's so small, yet the details are exquisite.
The EVA-02 keychain fig looked like plastic uranium glass, so I put it under blacklight, but it only sorta fluoresces, doesn't seem intentional.

Sorry to keep you in suspense, but I didn't think it was worth posting to point out the obvious.
>> No. 3341 [Edit]
Sorry to say but I wont be doing the drawing this month since I'm in the middle of moving and have been very busy, and probably wont have easy access to my stuff for a while due to it going into storage for a few weeks.
Maybe I can start doing this again in October.
>> No. 3342 [Edit]
No problems Tohno. I hope the move goes as smooth as possible.

Why can't Miku just be Miku?

Because there's already a billion Miku figs based on her original standard design with every pose possible. They need to keep making more Miku figs but the original design is played out, so they redesign her and redesign her again until the designs look like a completely different character.

Hello /fig/. I was wondering: where do you guys keep your figures? Inside display cases of glass? On top of a table or object? Does it get hard to clean the dust from time to time?

I currently have two figures and was thinking about buying a display case of glass for them since I kept them for a while on the table and took the dust away with soft brushes to not give chance to cause damage to the paint or whatnot. What do you do with yours to display them?

Half the threads here have been around for years, and no one really cares or minds the dates.

Detolfs might not be the nicest display cases out there, but it's hard finding decent display cases at prices that aren't highway robbery. you'd think there'd be more options for storing collectibles, but it just isn't a big enough market in the west to warrant mass produced cases with variety to pick from. Generally they're produced more for businesses and professional settings which brings large price tags, or are custom made which is also pricey. Of course if you're willing to settle there's always china cabinets designed for old women to store glass wear in, those do the job but tend to be very cumbersome and don't portray collectibles very well due to door trim blocking views and probably come with poor quality lighting. Honestly I'd say a couple Detolfs are better than a granny cabinet or two.
>> No. 3307 [Edit]
Words of wisdom. I was looking around for some nicer cabinets and they generally started at the $500 mark, some even getting up into the thousands. While I love my figures and want to take care of them I can't justify spending that much on a display cabinet.
>> No. 3308 [Edit]
It's still worth checking out second hand stores from time to time, Never know what you might find. I got a pretty decent one myself that might have come from a business setting for like $100-$150 or something. The shelves were missing but that was no big issue to replace. That said you may want to be wary of acrylic or Plexiglass display cases. The case I just mentioned is made out of something like that, and it cracks/pops very loudly all the time and has been doing so for years. I've kind of gotten used to it, but very loud random poping sounds could easily drive some people insane.
>> No. 3309 [Edit]
That's definitely a good idea and I'll keep that in mind next time I have to expand.
