Might as well make a figma thread.

I'm about to get this figma (within two-three months, probably). It's still in 'preorder' because I preordered something else along with it.

fuck yes!

I was thinking they gave up on this series.
seems the recent release of the movie really did give them the needed push to make another after all.

My financial situation can go fuck itself, preordering at the speed of lite.

quite possibly the prettiest figma to date.

but man I really wish they'd diversify more.
Accel World is barely like 10 ep in, not even half the show's full length, and they already have three figma out with two more on the way
I mean seriously guys?
Are they having that hard time getting merchandising rights to the other 40 shows airing this season or something? (from this season, they're only doing figs from two other shows)
Is Accel World even that popular? seems like they probably planed on doing this before the show even aired.

Another thing, why did they create a figma of Irisviel when there are plenty of much more popular and important characters in that same series?
such as rider, who ranked rather high on popularity polls.

Does anyone know where I can buy replacement screws and bolts for figma stands?

I've already gone to my local home depot and talked to someone there about it, and the smallest screws/bolts they have are nowhere near that size.
they sent me to radio shack, but again, they didn't have them. I've heard ace hardware might have them, but there isn't one anywhere near by.
and I don't know the exact measurements or whatever to order them online.

Do you guys think they'll ever actually finish the set of main strike witches characters with figma? they really don't seem to be in any rush to get the things out, meanwhile they're busy making alternate versions of figs from shows they've already done full casts of.
would it be safe to assume they're just gonna leave it at the four they've already done?

I just found out Bandai already has their own full set of strike witches action figures in the same scale as figma. and while they don't 'look' as nice as figma, word is they're better designed.
I'm wondering if I should finish off the set with these or if I should wait and see if they ever get around to doing more strike witches figma, but I'm not very confident they will.
What do you guys think?
I should also add that I found a good deal on these for 1500 jpy, (about $30 after shipping compared to the $50-$55 a figma would cost with shipping)
>> No. 2192 [Edit]
I am interested in these, let's talk about them.
>> No. 2202 [Edit]
Bought a Sanya the waiting game.
>> No. 2207 [Edit]
seems they might be a tab bit smaller in scale than figma. If figma are 1/12, these would be like 1/13 or maybe 1/12.5

File 135198983219.jpg - (423.73KB , 1200x900 , hand joint.jpg )
well this was a first...
It really left me wondering how I pulled that one off (get it).
the original 40 or so figma sure had some shitty hand joints, took them long enough to realize how easy they were to brake...
I'm considering removing the balls from the ends of the pegs, should prevent these things from braking so easily but it might result in a loose fit and the hands might not stay in place well, what do you guys think?
>> No. 2210 [Edit]
Why don't they make villains/bad guys with very very rare exceptions?
Have you ever notice how these action figures are always shown in action/fighting poses, but almost never have anyone to fight?

So it seems Miho from Girls und Panzer is getting a figma.
I really liked the anime, and figma but I'm not sure how I feel about this one. The focus of the anime always seemed to me like it was more on the tanks rather than the characters. A fig of just the character(s) feels like it would be kind of lacking in that regard. like if they released the strike witches figma without the striker units. A 1/12 scale (figma ex-ride) panzer IV would be fucking huge and expensive. 1/12 model cars average $100+ if you can find them, imagine what a tank would cost. I really doubt they'll be making one, but who knows.

I'm also wondering why they went with that late series outfit instead of the more iconic school uniform they're always in.

Saber 2.0 is finally here. She looks much better than the original figma.
>> No. 2728 [Edit]
Yeah saw it go up for preorder. detail does look a fair bit better, although there's something off about the faces she comes with that I can't put my finger on (I guess I'm just used to the old one) all the same I'm fine with the original I got and don't think I'll be dropping $50 on an upgrade. I still can't say I much like the idea of them doing V2s of characters they've already done when there's still so many good ones out there they've passed up, besides feeling kind of insulting to the people who bought the originals.

I like this faceplate and her yelling one... the third/neutral face does seem a bit off. I have the original but I'm going to get her anyways, I'm constantly worried something like >>2209 will happen to me so I don't play with her much.
I don't think we'll see too many v2's, just for the super popular characters like Saber / Miku.

Max factory has started a new line of figs based on figma called figFIX. Seems they're basically preexisting figma (same scale and all) but without the joints and in fixed poses.
This particular item which is their first is priced at 3,900, compared to the original figma version at 5,370.

How, in the hell, is this a "figma"?

Not sure, but it's cool to see R-Type figures coming out.

Would it be worthwhile to visit Japan, buy exclusive figures and the like, and then re-sell them back home? Could I make a fairly decent amount with it? I could be evicted by my parents if they decide I'm not earning my keep.
>> No. 3679 [Edit]
Depends on your country if you're selling online, and general area if you're planing on selling offline. I think you'd have a hard time finding buyers for these rather niche items. If you're dead set on doing it however, your best bet would be selling at cons where you can sell for decent markups and offload some units as long as they're from more popular and/or established series.
>> No. 3680 [Edit]
I highly doubt the money you would make would offset the cost of travel.
>> No. 3681 [Edit]
Possibly replying to the wrong person but yes, they likely wont make a fraction of their expenses back. Flights to and from japan, at least for me, would be $1,000+. I used to sell figs at a decent pace, but even on my best months I was making maybe $100 in profit. That's not enough to pay for a trip to japan, not enough to live on, it would barely cover my electric bill.

btw, I don't really see how this is related at all to figma. Really should have been given it's own thread.

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.

Ah fuck, when did they make her? Now that I've seen she exists, I've GT t add her to my collection
>> No. 3741 [Edit]
That was years and years ago, back when they still had interest in making figma based on anime characters who aren't from super main stream series.
