Regarding your question from the /ot/-thread: I have a Kagamine Rin DDS but I suck at taking pictures, so I generally don't post any.
Don't have any other clothes yet but that will change around Christmas, will also go for the Enma Ai Azone, if they happen to still have her in stock (which I doubt).

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.

I'll just be listing what I think of each of the online shops I brought from. These are all just opinions.

Otacute
They throw in free stuff, but some of their prices are unreasonable. Overall, their prices are still tolerable. I bought a bunch of stuff once and they gave me a MtG life counter and a calendar. Plus, unlike the others, preorders and already in stock items can be shipped together rather than shipped separately, because I'd like them to ship all my merchandise at once, to save up on shipping costs. So far, I think I'll be buying from there more often, even if my first SAL shipment from there took more than 3 weeks to arrive. Plus, it's all conveniently priced in USD.

Amiami
I forget how many times I fucked up there and they still think as if it were nothing. (I ordered a bunch of shit multiple times there, got pissed off at the shipping rates, but decided not to pay them; eventually I did buy some deck boxes from there, so it was fine in the end) Prices were decent, but I don't like the way they handle their payments and shipping.

Hobby Search
The only good thing is the points collection system in which you save up points for discounts and shit like that. Otherwise, most of the time, their prices are somewhat steep, but I'd buy from there if I couldn't get something from any of the other two.

I've checked some other English-language stores, but their prices were extremely unreasonable at best.

That scares the shit out of me.

And I dislike buying in JPY. It seems that with each passing day, I'm getting less and less for what I paid for.
>> No. 222 [Edit]
Well, Necro got the only three I bother to order from anymore, however I HIGHLY recommend amiami over any of the others. They are the fastest and the most reliable, with the easiest staff to get along with. Their prices are good, too. Except for shipping...

NOW.

EMS shipping is butthole rape. However, there is an air of uncertainty about SAL that I can not come to terms with. All my shit I've gotten via SAL has come to me looking like it was shipped from Afghanistan instead of Tokyo. So, ya gotta weigh your options.
>> No. 225 [Edit]
>>222
This.

Yet, I'd like to reiterate that I don't want to get assraped by shipping from AmiAmi and the exchange rate. So I'd much rather deal with Otacute than any place that deals in JPY, even if I ended up with a fucked up box. Plus, I mostly order tcg-related materials anyway, aside from cheap figs that are on sale.

were you using the honor system, letting kids grab what they wanted?
>> No. 3398 [Edit]

It depended on how many kids there were each time I opened the door and how much candy was left in the bowl until I refilled it.
If there were just a few or just one kid I let them choose. If there was very little candy until I refilled it I would let them choose. That's why I have no more Reeses cups left.
Otherwise I just gave them a random piece, one each.

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.

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 just blew ~USD320 total on these two.

It was a great deal, each one of them costing me half the least all other resellers were asking for.

I caught 2B on eBay from a very kind seller, who already sent me a couple of pics of the parcel before shipping (my name and address on it). Catherine was my first time buying from Solaris Japan; hope it turns out alright.

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?

OP here. First I bought a cheap body pillow. "I can sleep better with it". After some time I bought a cover. "The old pillow was too small." And pillow stuffing. They didn't say much. So everything worked out fine. Thank you. I really recommend buying a dakimakura. I can't stop grinning when I hug her.

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.

I keep her hidden under a blanket under my mattress. The downside is I can only ever hug my daki when mom isn't home. Don't like to think what would happen if she found out about my secret.

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?

You guys know about LED strip lighting right? You can buy spools of the stuff at hardware stores and they often sell plug in wires for them for running the cable around things where you don't need the light to be.
They even have other forms of the lights, if pucks, bars or tracks.
They sell a small kit called "Dioder" at IKEA that's perfect for backlighting a monitor, bookcase or TV and it's really cheap.
I anticipate they also have separate parts to extend the kit at the parts desk where you'd order replacement tabletops and get replacement screws.

LED lights won't damage figs. They don't get very hot with the proper voltage and ventilation. As long as you don't put one of those standing 20k lumen worklights right beside your shelf.

It probably goes without saying but sunlight is the number one thing you have to avoid with any collectible.
Honestly, you should avoid sunlight in general because it'll degenerate your macula / make you blind and give you skin cancer. Don't forget to take vitamin D pills.

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. 3369 [Edit]
>>3368
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.

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 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.
