This is where wallets come to die.

If you're interested in overpriced pvc, be sure to check out my shitty ebay store. It's like donating to /tc/ but actually getting something out of it.

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?

Goddamn AAA batteries
>> No. 1200 [Edit]
yeah that part sucks, I would rather it used a plug, so I wouldn't have to keep replacing batteries.
Maybe I'll try and connect a power cord to the thing somehow.
>> No. 1201 [Edit]
I think what makes things fade is the UV spectrum inside the light. UV light packs more energy, enough to break the bonds in certain chemicals. Sunlight ahs some UV, most artificial forms of light don't I think.

Candles are even worse. They will release black soot which will eventually come to coat your figs, not to mention the fire danger.

Got the thing, and to no surprise, it was really cheaply made, But it works and the figs look awesome under it.

When I got it, It had no manual or anything, so I didn't know how to get the plate thing off the back that was keeping me from getting to the battery's, wasn't until I took a power drill to it and got it off I saw it just had to be slid to the side then up (which I even tried) would have been nice had they said so.
This was something I wanted to leave on all the time, and because opening the fig case over and over to turn it on/off or change the battery's would suck, I took it apart and wired it up to run off an old power adapter I had, which was surprisingly easy to do, then I ripped apart an old light I had, and used the on/off switch for that, and taped it to the side of my fig case, works pretty well I think.

Anyways, if anyone wants one of these lights, they go for like $7+ on ebay, just search for "led cabinet light"
Just know, the pads used to hold them to the surface really suck, mine fell down onto my figs the other day, so I went and bought some sticky pad things to hold it in place (rather not drill holes into my fig case to screw something this cheep into place.)

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.

Last weekend, I went to a big regional con. Full three days, drained my wallet and account to thirteen dollars. I hope you don't mind if I post what I bought in this thread.

Things I bought were at a reasonable price compared to others I have seen online. Also a lot of import goods I never saw anywhere else. The best part is that you can check everything and make sure you have a quality purchase.

First is an overview of all the merch I purchased. There are some really overpriced items I went nowhere near, and a few dealers were selling with overinflated prices. I'll find out the names of them so I can avoid them.

Final purchase (of interest to TC) was this Konata plush for a decent price. I know I could find lower than $15 online but sneaking shipped packages into my house is harder than just packing it into my suitcase and bringing it home.

My last pic is my new setup, after an hour of rearranging, dusting, setting up, relocating and trashing. If anyone wants other angles or info, please ask.

Has anyone else made purchases from conventions?
>> No. 1031 [Edit]
Looks nice.

The only things I ever bought from the four conventions to which I've been were a Lucky Star trading figure, a TTGL shirt, and a Hoshii Miki Revoltech. Conventions rarely have things I can't find online, and online is usually for cheaper.

Sexy set up. The colored lights are a nice touch.

Magic, anything about Magic.

(And Magic-sized sleeve/deck box discussion is also fine.) - Check out the stats of your deck. - Pretty much the same as Gatherer, but superior. - Price changes in cards

And do not play MTGO. (Because of its horrible shuffling system, unless if you are okay playing some form of monoblack with a Consume Spirit/Corrupt finisher)

The set is entirely spoiled.

It's as if they took one third of the Scars block and made it less shittier. The last two sets were trash, aside from some obvious money cards and EDH cards.

I bought one of the new decks they're selling, before realizing I have no one to play it with.

Character sleeves are hard to come by here. I'm quite lucky to get this Airi one in a toy shop.

I wonder which character should I get next. I was browsing for character sleeves online and the ones that I really like are sold out, like the Kuroneko one.

And yeah, character sleeves general. I wanna see yours.

I may regret asking this of you, but here goes.

I have no income, and for the next month, I have just $120 to my name.

I want to buy the Nendoroid Petit set shown here, specifically the girls in their Day of Sagittarius dress. I have found them for a decent price individually (Yuki costing extra).

I just feel like I need that money for an emergency within the next few weeks. It scares me to think of that. Also I may get a once-in-a-lifetime chance at another item, or the price of these items will go up if I wait too long, since this has happened before, quite recently, actually.

How does one with no money make such pressing decisions? I don't want to ask anyone else, since they will consider it trivial and judge me for this being one of the most stressful decisions in my life at the moment.

Every time I've decided that I REALLY wanted some fig (i.e. when it's so beautiful that I think I'll feel stupid/weak in the future for not getting it when I could), I took all the rare chances I had to get them, even if I ended up pennyless for the rest of the month. But the thing is: I live with my family (whom I leech from, apart from certain convinient schollarship), and don't really need money for food and hostage so being with no money isn't at all a life or death issue to me now.

So... be passionate with figs, alright; but try to be careful.

Similar living conditions. However, my parents get pissed at me whenever I receive a package in the mail, even when I am well-off, so I have to sneak them in using some pretty complex methods.

It's times like this I am thankful for watching Hogan's Heroes so avidly.
