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.

Just wondering: all that stuff she has for reading, does it say/show something intelligible? I mean, like for being able to tell if it's one of her Maschera fanfics or one of her original doujins...

Anyway: nice. I wait with great expectation the release of the Kotobukiya "Memories" Kurenko on december.

No, nothing on the inside, what she's holding is just something I made to look like a book from some scrap paper and one of the stickers she comes with.
The doujins/fanbooks she comes with are just two white rectangular flat blocks you place stickers over.
One of those stickers reads: 'Encyclopedia of Maschera'
the other reads 'Crystal ball' with subtext that's almost imposable to read.

It may have more to do with the fact that professional pics are taken from specially well finished models, and not mass produced ones; or at least from versions oriented only to japanese market, and not the international ones...

Something I forgot to add.
I believe official images of figs are usually photoshopped to hell.
Not just color correction, removal of dust small scratches fixing paint imperfections and so on.

I thought the lighting was good before, but then I started noticing shadows on the front of some of the figs, clearly I needed another light sort coming from in front of the item.

Now that I've got four lamps in place, two on the sides, one on the top and one in front, I think the lighting is as good as it's gonna get.
Any brighter and I might go blind while taking these pics.

Though, I can't help but think they still look very amateurish.

Got my hands on a new camera today.
Not sure what to think of it.
It doesn't screw up colors like my other one, but I can't say I'm really that impressed by the quality, but I suppose it's a little better.
Lot of settings to mess with, so there might be something in that...

It looks really nice (mostly because of the selection of colors). But, personally, I still think that the fact of the backgrounds being photos throws them out a bit. Since the ideas are good (and as I understand that you -still- do go out sometimes), it might be worth trying as well to picture them with actual flowers or landscapes...

They don't need to be gorgeous places; just something that somehow resonates with the figure, making the picture more endearing or interesting to see as a personal rendition (e.g. Minagi at the roof of a building, or near some railway lines... idk). I know you can do it.

It's not just that I prefer not to go out if I can help it, there's also something that rubs me the wrong way about flaunting figs in public, or having them near real plants that might be crawling with tiny bugs.
besides, it's not exactly good for the figs to be exposed to direct sunlight.
But yeah, it's fairly obvious that they're backdrops, so I dunno, maybe I'll try looking around for other possible areas that might work and keep experimenting.

I forgot to tell: the seller also sent me some (presumably green) japanese tea as a gift...

Does anyone know how should I prpare it? (does it go alone, with sugar, honey... something?)
>> No. 2018 [Edit]

Care to share seller?

Anyway, that bag probably has loose leaves inside. You cannot really prepare the tea (that well) without proper tea equipment. I am going to suppose you have a tea set.

-First, you want to warm water enough (in a Tea kettle or some other closed metal utensil used for boiling) that it begins to boil; and as soon as it does, turn off the heat. While it heats, do step 2

-Take your teapot (different from Kettle) and place hot water from your faucet inside, so that the teapot (be it clay, metal, or ceramic) can heat up. Do the same to your tea cup. This way, the tea will not cool down when you pour it in either.

-Once the water begins to boil, do the following as speedily as possible (I don't mean in two seconds, but don't take 5 minutes either)

*Pour the faucet water out of the teapot and if you wish, dry the teapot a bit (with paper towel).
*Add tea (the leaves inside the bag, silly) to the teapot. Approximately 1 heaping teaspoon per 8 ounces of water. (That's why it's called a teaspoon.) Or just add as much or little as you like. More tea=stronger tea.
*Add the water to the teapot. (Don't use the infuser (the little mesh) that comes with the teapot, let the laves freely travel around the water). We will use the infuser later.

-Steep for the appropriated amount of time. (Steeping is a fancy word for "leaving the tea leaves inside the teapot with your boiled water so it can turn the water into tea").
For green tea, steep for 2-3 minutes. Doing it longer will cause your tea to bitter.

-Pour the tea (stuff in the teapot) into the teacup which should now have its faucet water emptied. Make sure you pour through the infuser so that the tea leaves will catch in the mesh and not stay in your tea. You don't want leave sin your tea when you drink.

Drink. You can add honey if you wish, or sugar. If you want to add milk, to make it less watery, make sure you have the milk in the teacup before you pour in the tea. If you pour in the tea, and THEN the milk, the milk will burn (because the tea is hot) and curdle. Finally, if you use milk, do not add lemon. Milk and lemon cause a chemical reaction that also curdles the milk.

Now, if the thing is just a tea bag, then heat some water in a cup, pop that sucker in the cup and remove bag after 2 minutes. Done.


By the way, is that Asuka RealAction like a larger Revoltech. I'm not really one for buying dolls or action figures (other than Figmas/Revoltechs), so I am curious.

I'm deeply sorry I haven't answer you properly; I've had to do some stuff these days, and I'm still on it. However: I do own a special cup for tea, so your little tutorial will soon prove very helpful: thank you very much. About your question: it's a Real Action Heroes model; it's very large, articulated and have some realistic textures, but still looks more like a figure than a doll (hair is plastic); here is the relisted item, by the same seller:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261016204937

...AND, the most important, I just saw this and instantly thought about you; if possible don't let this one chance pass:

http://www.e2046.com/product/7700

Even if right now you don't have any money, but do want it, you could still make the preorder; they take even months into completing each order and, by then, when they finally mail you the invoice, you may be ready for it.

Good luck and see you around.

He's using a converter. You can buy them at a hardware store, I believe for about $1 each.
I'm guessing the green line is attached to the ground socket, and then attached to something grounded.
The type I had had a metal tab with a screw hole instead for this purpose, the idea being that the screws holding in the wall sockets are gounded, so you would connect the ground socket to the screw.

More or less finished my first attempt at painting and stuff with figs.
could have come out better, but again, first time doing this sort of thing so whatever.

This fig didn't necessarily look bad before( >>2056 )
but the colors didn't match the character, and although the shade of pink I used was a fair bit off, I think it came out decently enough.

but man, I'm sure as heck never going to use matte clear coat on a fig ever again.

Can't say I'm crazy about how the background thing came out, the scale looks kinda weird, sidewalk is too small and makes figs look huge.

Why did you keep it in the box for so long?

They were originally going to be a 6000 unit limited release, but they got a second run. A lot of people kept them in the boxes but there's no real reason to anymore, and a lot of people are just posting now about how they opened them and the heat fused their joints/ broke parts, etc.

More or less what >>2477 said. I kept it in the box becuase of the whole value/rarity but also becuase it honestly didn't interest me all that much. That fig easily takes the prize for least amount of accessories among figma, to the point that every single spare hand she comes with along with the stand are prominently displayed on the front of the box, where as normally those things are hidden away to make room for more interesting items. I don't think I've seen another figma that came with an empty hand holder.

I was going to unbox her when I got my kagami miku figma, but even then didn't get around to it until I (re)made the display they're currently on.
I guess I'm a bit lucky I didn't have any broken or fused parts on mine.

I recently engaged in paying this through a 3-month plan. It's very expensive, but hopefully worth it...

Why not save for 3 months then buy it? That way you don't fall into the jewploy.
>> No. 3139 [Edit]
>>3138
As I arranged it through mail, the price is fixed and overall lower than what I'd pay at once through a third party. The point of paying in parts is so my wallet can handle it better, since I get a monthly payment and have expenses to make...

That said, my only concern is that once Donald Trump wins (as he most likely will) the dollar change fluctuation might take a toll on me; but that's inevitable.

Once Donald Trump wins, the dollar will get stronger and figs will get cheaper by conversion rate.

And here is where the 2-D art style of a huge head on an otherwise perfect body fails to transition to 3-D.

Her head is much too big, and her neck is much too thin, which when combined with a well-portioned body, makes her look like a golf-ball with a pencil suck through impaled where a head and neck should be.

But from her collar bones and down, she's beautiful from all directions.

Thanks. I'm glad she got a re-release and I was able to snag her. She's definitely one of the best looking figures I own. She also weighs a ton but I think that is due to her hair.
