My Negi and Asuna figs.

Sorry if camera quality is shit.
>> No. 2150 [Edit]
Cool figs. Out of curiosity, why so many phrasebooks?
>> No. 2151 [Edit]
I bought them each at times when I thought they were neat and then forgot about them.

I sold off a handful of them and the ones that are left are ones that I still look at from time to time.

What do you do when you get a new figure?

Do you have any rituals or anything?

I smell them. I love the smell of new things.

I also look over them for any imperfections and then get annoyed when I find some and wish I hadn't looked for them, since they're so small I wouldn't have naturally have noticed but knowing they're there is enough to bug me forever.
>> No. 2066 [Edit]
I leave 'em in the box for a day or two to admire them, then I take them out and pose them. I'll probably change the poses of my other figures too. The first pose I put them in is one shown on the box, which I'll keep for a while as a reference for the next couple of poses.
>> No. 2135 [Edit]
Not really.

If it's a model kit though, I'll usually look up a bunch of gunpla tutorials to try to figure out how to paint it. Then I'll remember I have no money, regret buying it, let it sit for ages, and put it together minimally and unpainted eventually.

I take a bunch of photos of it, including the box.
then when I find a pose I'm happy with, I look for a decent spot to keep it.
Latter I edit the previously taken pics when I don't feel like doing much else, and eventually use them while reviewing the fig on my half-assed blog.
which of course no one cares about becuase the fig has already been out for a good while by then. (among other reasons)

latter on if I decide to change up the figure's pose, I'll possibly take more pics of it to update the old post I made about it.

Looks like Good Smile is going to be polling for which of their figures they should re-release. Info on voting and a link are here:

I'm hoping for the original Miku Hatsune and nendo Yoshika Miyafuji, as well as Konata, and for future figs, Hartmann. 
>> No. 2014 [Edit]

I'm disappointed. Too much Miku/Saber, not enough Azusa.

Considering how many Miku/Saber figures are already out there, and how often Good Smile company re-releases figures of those characters.
I'm inclined to say the people who voted are idiots, or it's rigged.

/fig/, I'm trying to get my hands on one of these, but I can't find one for less than 160 dollars.
Could anyone point me in a better direction?

How long did it take to ship? I'm getting nervous because I ordered something from them last week.
>> No. 1960 [Edit]
once they took just 1 day. another time, they took 5 days. it maybe depends on the amount of work they have atm.
>> No. 1988 [Edit]
My figure finally arrived today. No problems either.
>> No. 1989 [Edit]
Thanks for reporting! I did feel unease and responsability for sugesting it...
I'm glad it turned out well.

Oh you got your Haruhi. How do you like her? I'm quite impressed with the quality given the price.
>> No. 1178 [Edit]

I think I talked about it in another thread. Essentially, the face and body proportions aren't just that haruhistic like that of Figma's; but, on his favour, the overall appearance is much more elegant (slimer) and sexy, with a fair level of detail, careful painting and high quality finishing (I mentioned that I specially liked that her uniform isn't black, but a nice deep brown)...

So yeah, IMHO, it was quite a bargain.

This might be an odd question, but have any of you ever had a problem with figs sort of sweating?
I don't know the term for it, or what's going on with them, but a few of my figs seem to have produced a sticky transparent substance, and the figs as a result kind of looks as if they're sweating.
is this something toxic and something I should worry about?
Also, I don't think the figs doing it are bootlegs.

interesting read.
Now I wish more than ever that I had a working ac unit in my room.
that page also explained why the guitars of my k-on figma got stuck to their uniforms and left paint marks when pulled off.

I already knew figs were really delicate, but jeez...
Sticking figs in a freezer every 4 months sounds like a hassle...

Not OP, but: HOLLY SHI*-
My room is hot as fuck...
>> No. 1971 [Edit]
It won't be toxic, but if you're room is really hot, then maybe it's worth doing this >>1966

Fortunately I have AC running pretty much 24/7 in my room otherwise I'm sure all my figures would be messy blobs on my shelves by now.

This weather has me scared shitless.

Humidity, temps in the 100 F range, and sweating miserably.

What effect does this have on my figs?

I find myself avoiding my room whenever I can for fear that I will raise the temperatures and humidity and make everything crumble.

The picture here is my equivalent to a horror movie, and I am currently proverbially walking through a dense forest in the dead of night.

Haruhi $#%^ing %$#*
I got a bunch of figma today in the mail, and wouldn't you know it, a hand on one broke right off like nothing at all.
damn, I really can't believe how easy that thing broke off, I didn't twist it or pull it at an angel or anything, it just came right off with the ball joint thing still in the arm, damn it.
It's no wonder why they have smooth shafts on the hands now with all new figma.
I bet they got tons of complaints on this.
oh and this was the Fate figma by the way (old version, 009)
oh joy, now I get to try and dig the ball end out of the arm somehow.
>> No. 1443 [Edit]
fyi, using a needle is a bad idea.
I just tried prying it out with a needle, and the darn thing snapped off into my face.

Managed to get it out without much visable damage.
took the arm part off, and hammered a nail into the opposite end to push it out, sounds worse then it is, you can't see any damage unless you take the fig apart and look down the hole/slot.

Lo and behold, something like this happened to me a couple weeks ago.

My Konata Figma was somehow bumped off my shelf onto my bed, under my pillow. When I jumped onto my bed, I heard a tiny SNAP.

and my heart dropped.

the insert where the stand goes into the back of her hair snapped off, and was stuck in there...

After a lot of experimenting, I finally used a tiny screw, screwed it into the insert, and pulled it out, no damage done.

However, I do need a new stand...

Forgot to post about it, but my Tsuruya figma I purchased for myself for my birthday broke.

Out ot the box, her right shoulder joint was frozen. I tried to wiggle it a little (usually they're just a little stuck), but it just SNAPPED. the joint was literally fused together.

The shoulder joint is a sphere in a socket in the body, with a revolver joint attached to the outer part. The revolving joint was fused and the socket wasn't moving well.

Using some tools I carved out a hole in the socket ball after intentionally breaking off the useless revolving joint. I then found a spare revolver joint from a revoltech fig I have, and after doing some gluing and curing, the joint works like a charm.

Revoltech and Figma joints are interchangeable but make the figma look silly. Her right shoulder sticks out a scale two inches from her body but I at least fixed the damn thing.

So my dumbass cousin was forced to stay with me, his parents and my own were out of town and he needed someone to stay with.

Long story short he was fucking around with my stuff and snapped the figma stand of my Saber Lily, and now the peg is stuck in the hole.

Do you guys have any tips on how to get it out? It's too deep in there for fingers.
2 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 1856 [Edit]
well, in that case, why not use the other half of the part that broke off as the 'glued something' ?

and yeah, probably would, you'd leave tons of unsightly cut like marks around the rim of the hole.

possibly worth noting.
are you familiar with the di stage for figma?
they're sort of like deluxe versions of figma stands, usually sell for around 500jpy a peace, but more importantly, they come with a arm for figma, the tip of which is the same as the ones that come with figma.
the arm is pretty much the same, except for one of those two long clear bars are short, but both ends and the other segment are the same.
>> No. 1859 [Edit]
hmmm that's interesting, if I can manage to get the peg out later today I'll maybe look into one.
>> No. 1860 [Edit]
Gluing does not work at all, this happened to me actually. the glue will make it worse.

What I suggest is getting a tiny screw, making a pilot hole in the dead centre of the peg, screwing the screw in and pulling it out.

On a side note, anyone know where I can find a replacement figma stand? (´・ω・`)
>> No. 1864 [Edit]
Thanks for the tip, I asked /toy/ and they seemed to echo that glue could make it worse.

A little bit different than >>100, but still a prominent issue.

Any items you see sold for ¥2000 in Japan, but nobody cared enough to import them/ jacked up the price to $130 or more on eBay, and your only options are to either pay out the ass to a proxy bidder because the Japanese sellers refuse to ship international or you have to actually go to Japan to find them?

For me, an immaculate plush of my waifu and the Yoshika Miyafuji Nendoroid are on my list. When I have the money for a long trip...
>> No. 1795 [Edit]

This is an example of the awesome deals you can get there.
I tryed my hand at bidding on it with a proxy bidder, but all the proxie's fees and the two way shipping, really jacks up the price and makes it impractical.
the stuff there must have been worth 50000jpy, but went for 32,020.

man, If I lived in japan, I could buy stuff like this all the time and resell it to dumb Americans and be able to live without having to keep a real job.
