Do you think 3d printers have advanced to the point where they can play a role in the figurine market? Imagine being able to download a professionally made design file and making your own figurine without having to pay any shipping costs. This also allows for a greater variety of figurines since actually producing designs would no longer a hurdle for the company responsible, so they can pump out hundreds of designs at low cost.

Pic was made with 3d printer.

I believe fig makers already use 3D printers for prototypes. I've seen tons of unpainted and unreleased figures with those very obvious horizontal printing lines. I'd like to think it helps a lot in the pre-production phase. I don't think it's changed the market much though, but might be why we've been able to have nicer quality figures these days if nothing else.
For home use, you'd need a pretty good printer and the right materials. You would also need to do a considerable amount of work on the figure once printed to make it passable. Sanding and smoothing the entire thing for starters, and of course painting it. This wouldn't really be anything new for veterans who are used to a time when nearly all figures were garage kits, but people who expect to hit a few buttons and get a perfect figure, they might be in for a surprise.

3D printers are really only good for primitives and base models that you plan to use only for the general shape, and add on all the details later.

My Mamako figure arrived. I think this is what is called a scale figure but I’m not entirely sure, I just know it’s probably the biggest figure I own so far. Hopefully there won’t be too many more because those things take space. Thankfully this one wasn’t particularly expensive but that seems to show. There are parts in the mold where the plastic isn’t completely uniform and smooth. All the important details are done well but it definitely has a cheaper look as you can hopefully see in this higher resolution picture I’ve posted.

The cuts are not extremely well done. The paint seems to extend past edges like on the frills of her skirt, the collar, the elbow straps, and just about everything on her outfit that is a fabric. The armor pieces and leather straps don’t seem to have this problem as severely.
The details themselves all look like what they need to look like. All of the important things on her design are there with added folds on her skirt. and her pantsu
I don’t know how figures are made but the mold looks a little gross and odd at times. The torso looks good and the dress extends just slightly out from her back as if to look more like actual clothing yet the breasts seem to bulge just a bit from the breast section of her dress as if they strain the outfit. I don’t know if that was intentional to make it look like her breasts are bigger than the outfit shows or if it’s a mistake in the plastic but somehow it looks a little gross here. What also doesn’t help is that if I look at the plastic too closely on her skin and hair it looks a bit gross there too. I know it’s plastic so obviously it’s going to look like it but I thought figures would pretend to look like anime skin a little better, so completely smooth, yet this has a kind of synthetic shine with slight imperfections, a kind of “grain”, though I don’t know if that’s the word. I suppose that is an inevitability of plastic. The skin has some imperfections such as slight lines, likely having something to do with the molding. The hair lines are all there and the hair gets darker in certain spots so there was definitely attention to detail on this. Lastly she has a slight yellow spot on the back of her left leg that looks like

My Mamako Oosuki nesoberi came in today. Here she is next to my Mamako noodle stopper figure.

The plush is really nice. The outfit is one of those plain fabrics where the details are printed on and not embroidered to sewn into with other fabrics. That looks like it's the norm for smaller plushies which would be difficult to sew a certain amount of detail on. The only embroidered part is the face which is, as usual for these kind of plushies, very good. The arm guards are made of little squares of those firm fabrics and the ribbons vary. The white ribbon around her waist is a white and proper ribbon but the blue and red ribbon that ties her hair is made of the same fabric as the dress, probably to save costs and resources. The metal bead chain to hang her up on things from isn't actually held down by just the white loop but also by a stitch into the head. It's a bit redundant but I think maybe they did that just to be safe.

The noodle stopper figure is really nice too. I'm not someone who can make a hyper in-depth review of the finer intricacies of figures but to me this one looks good. The colors all look right, the face looks like what it's supposed to look like though just a tiny bit rough when you look at it really closely but it gets the job done. What details it does have like the tiny folds on her swimsuit or the lines in her hair look pretty good. The swimsuit also isn't some kind of line on the skin of the body but does look like it's an actual piece of clothing she's wearing. The straps stick to her breasts though so that makes it clear that it is all part of one mold.
I was lucky enough to get this figure by mistake, the seller sent me this figure instead of the plush, and I only paid $20 for it instead of the other higher prices this figure can go for. I'm happy I paid so little for it since other figures of this character are more expensive and for this price I'm more than satisfied with it. My only concern is that I worry she would fall over if I used her for her intended purpose which is putting her on top of the lid for cup noodles. She leans on top of it instead of other figures which sit on top of the cup so I'm worried that she wouldn't be properly balanced unless you at least take some time to make sure she's on there good. I don't eat cup

My Tomomo Sweet Eater form plush arrived today. I’ve taken pictures to compare the visible differences between these two. Pictured is Sora, the blonde one, who came from the first wave of 100% Orange Juice plushies and who I will be comparing Tomo to.
In case you want more information about the character you can always search more about her but the extremely basic points are that she comes from her own game that is part of the Suguri series and is a playable character in the crossover board game 100% Orange Juice. Tomomo, however, made her debut as the villain of 100% OJ. With that out of the way for anyone curious, I can get the history out of the way next.
Fruitbat Factory, the publisher of both games, arranged a Kickstarter campaign for a first wave on January 30th, 2018. It featured plushies of Marie Poppo, Suguri, Sora, Star Breaker, QP, and Hime with character and hyper cards to be included and a character accessory for each one to be unlocked as funding increased. The second wave, which started on October 8th, 2019, followed a similar format but with the addition of wall scrolls and featured Marc, Aru, Alte, Tomomo – Sweet Eater form, Saki, Ceoreparque, and accessories for each. And now with the history done I can move on to the comparison of the plushies themselves.

Tomomo and Sora feature some small differences between the two. Tomomo, as you can tell, has a lot more detail in her design. She sports a kind of coat, a white dress under that, ends in a pleated trim, wings, a ribbon around her hair, and a heart at the top of her dress. Needless to say, Tomomo goes (super) all out (mode) for the magical girl look. Sora, however, wears a simple seifuku and a skirt. As you can probably tell, the details on her outfit are printed onto the fabric unlike Tomomo’s outfit that had more effort and resources put in to make it look nice and more faithfully bring the outfit to life.
They both feature their in-game weapons as accessories, that is, Sora’s sword and Tomomo’s magical red bean ice-cream, both made with printed on fabric with a slight fuzz to it. Sora has a little magnet in the handle of her sword and one in both hands which allows her to “hold” her sword. Tomomo’s ice cream doesn’t have that, unfortunately, despite also having those same small magnets in her hands. I don’t know if I missed it somewhere

I think I'm going to stop collecting all kinds of different figs and just focus my money on Nendoroids from now on.

They're cute, sturdy, are almost always nicely done and have the perfect size. They won't stick out like other figs if they're among other Nendos and my OCPD won't bother me again.

My next purchase will be a Yuki for sure, if I find one.

This thread can serve as a Nendo General if you like.

They've been making figma boxes is a fairly uniform size for the past ten years or so, with hundreds of figs in two main sizes (save for special cases). Now They've decided to start making the boxes smaller, likely to save money/space in shipping. They're both thinner and shorter than the standard box, but just as thick. I have to say, I found this a bit annoying.

What do you guy think about netsuke? I've wanted to collect some for a while, but they're pretty out of my price range. Trying to get an ivory figurine into the country is also pretty dicey. I like how they're made out of expensive shit, intricate, and individually crafted by artists. Netuke actually served a function in the past, but that's largely obsolete now, so I guess they can just be considered a style of figurine. Contemporary ones have been made, but movie kaiju are the only pop culture figures anybody has based them off of, as far as I know.

It doesn't surprise me. As long as some people have an interest in something, there'll be a few who still make them. Same for medieval swords. At least a few of these guys sell, but they're all fairly conservative. I haven't seen anyone carving individual figures of characters from wood.

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.
