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.

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.

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.

That's definitely a good idea and I'll keep that in mind next time I have to expand.

How about a dakimakura thread? Post what you have, experiences, and complaints (about how your waifu lacks even a design for one).

Why does no one love Miko? Soga has a dakimakura design already! And Mamizou! Even Wriggle has one, but Shizuha doesn't. But I guess it doesn't really matter right now, since I lack the funds to purchase one.

I would love to have this Yuno one if I could find it. Don't really like the swimsuit side, though. Seems out of place for me, who just wants a design that fits a girl going to bed.

And is there really a difference between a normal pillow and a dakimakura? I've been using a normal pillow and it works out alright. Certainly would help if it were longer.

Shit, what happened to body pillow selection at Milanoo?

I spent all that time saving enough money for a dream harem and now they are all gone.
Any equally shady/shitty sites out there where I can get dakimakuras for cheap?

I don't suppose anyone knows where to find decent artists willing to do dakimakura artwork for reasonable prices? (-$200).
For years I've desperately wanted to have a daki of Minagi but it seems to be a real challenge to find artists who aren't horrible and who wont charge an arm and a leg. Around a year ago I found an artist on pixiv who spoke English did commissions and had reasonable prices. (eventh7) They said they'd be interesting in doing mine, and told me they'd send me the first sketch in a week but they ended up blowing me off I guess because I spent months checking my inbox every day waiting for them to respond. They ignored my messages and changed their profile removing the pricing of art commissions. I've tried hunting endlessly to find new daki artists on deviart but after digging through mountains of furry porn and absolute garbage I was only able to find a small handful artists worth considering. The main two being "kimmy77" and "tonee89". kimmy77's got reasonable pricing but their quality isn't very high and feels as if only minimal effort is put into the art to rush them out. tonee89 is much higher in quality but also much higher in price with commissions costing $300+
I also came across an artist called "kahookashii" who's prices indicated a daki would cost about $150, but when I messaged them they told me it would be $300. In asking why this was their response was "Because that's the price that Japanese studio usually pays me to do Dakimakura for them. It's irrelevant to my price list in my Journal "
Aside from that most of the decent-good artists I've found stopped doing commissions years ago.
I've heard from many sources that there are countless good Japanese artists willing to work for peanuts, but I clearly have no clue how to find them.
If anyone can help it would really really mean a lot to me. This is kinda like a holy grail thing to me.


someone was nice enough to draw this for me recently after seeing me struggle with this issue. (I hope they don't mind me posting it) It was an extremely really nice gesture of them which I really appreciate but obviously isn't exactly what I was looking for.

The lewd side. It's nice and soft, it makes sleeping in very enjoyable though I sleep with the non-lewd side more often. The only inconvenience I have with it is that I usually sleep on my right side but this was made for left-side sleepers. Otherwise, it's a wonderful cover to have as my first daki. Completely worth.

Why aren't small scale trading figs a thing anymore?
Seemed like these things cheap little things used to exist for just about every character from every anime. In recent years though they seem to have died out and been replaced mostly by super deformed Nendoroid Petit/Minicchu style figures. What the hell happend?

Figs are easily the most disgusting looking fruit of all time. The high chance of them containing dead wasps doesn't help much.

If I was to acquire some figs from someone who smoked, what would be a good way to remove the stink? would it even be wise to buy them in the first place? Smoke of any kind can be harmful to figures right?
>> No. 2149 [Edit]
Get a look at them first to see if they don't have that subtle dark grime that chain smokers' things normally have. Maybe you could try to use those bathroom odor things in a room with your figures in it so it could try to neutralize the smell on the surface, not sure.
>> No. 2909 [Edit]
I have one that smelled mildly of smoke but it gradually went away after a couple of weeks. Basically, if the figure looks fine and you don't mind the smell of smoke (which I don't) then it shouldn't be a problem.
