Con-going it's quite unpleasant/exhausting. But, sometimes, you can find good stuff on promotion there; like this one here, wich I really liked from a while, and finally bought this winter for a price about US$30 cheaper than in summer. It was a good deal.

I decided to get a Miku, already. Among such variety, it wasn't that easy of a choice. I found this one at a local store, at a reasonable price; she looked cute enough (brand new) on its box, but still I wasn't completely sure about getting it. Anyway I could afford it right there, so I just took the chance...

When I opened it, at my house, I felt really really happy with having doing so.

I ordered her today...I'm a little nervous because she's only $39.99 instead of the usual $115. I hope she's not actually an off-brand.
>> No. 241 [Edit]
Where did you order from?
>> No. 242 [Edit]
It's actually from a local shop called Niko Niko. They said since they had store locations in Japan they payed less on shipping (which seems fishy to me) so charged less. The figures I've bought from them in the past have been in good condition, but never in the original packaging. I specifically requested that they keep her boxed, so hopefully its alright.

>> No. 244 [Edit]
>never in the original packaging
That sounds extremely strange, are you sure you're not just buying used figs they cleaned up?

well, technically, even if the item never had a previous owner, it's used the second it's removed from the package, even if done by a store owner, an item, any item at any store stops being new when opened.
Not to say I've never bought used figs myself, but most people are revolted by the idea of buying used figs because of the strange things many people do to them.
Just be careful is all bro.

nice, I didnt realise this figure was available so cheaply. I just ordered one.

I dunno what that place is like but dont assume something is legit just because its being sold in a shop. I prefer to shop online because the prices are better anyway but I've heard a lot of shops IRL are selling fake figmas etc.
however I dont think bootlegs of that figure exist so you should be ok.

Sorry, I didn't see your post until now.

I got it from ebay; prices are over the moon right now, everywhere I looked for, but I managed to catch a recent auction on wich I won it for $66 (release price was about $58); althought now I'm still waiting for an answer from the seller, because further shipping costs went crazy (and he's quite apathetic, so negotiations have been a pain in the ass)...

Anyway: it's a bit hard to find now and really expensive, among western distributers. You could also take your chances at, though, or hope for a rerun (sometimes they DO happen... and too late).

Item reference for search:
Motoko Kusanagi 1/8
Good smile

Good luck, bro (and good luck to me too, because this is still a bit uncertain).
>> No. 545 [Edit]
Thanks, I don't trust ebay or the sellers enough to buy anything on that site so I will refrain from it even though I'm a huge Motoko fan. I'll just have to wait until I get enough money and buy it the hard way.

This limited edition Rin arrived just today. I didn't actually know its main feature was to be a cast-off... (shirt and backpack removable; nipples are suggested -sculpted- on her flat chest)
Painting isn't the best, but it's nicely enough for its very low price.

Mine arrived a couple days ago. The face and body proportions don't resemble Haruhi as much as Figma's, but on the other hand is actually prettier than I expected from the preview pics. Details are clean; I specially liked the fact that her uniform and hair aren't black but a nice deep brown.

My Hatsune Miku HMO ver. Nendo finally arrived. It's my first nendo I bought, while I had a Kagamin Hiiragi summer uniform ver. figure before.

It includes several additions, such as leeks, hands, feets, instruments and headsets, with also a clear plastic base with a connection for Miku's back for showcasing and posing. It also features two optional faces.

The nendo's joints are so small and delicate. It's a gorgeous and well made nendo. Surely worth it.

So I bought this on amazon, I have Kuroko maid, glasses Miku, and Miyafuji figma on order, and I nearly stopped myself from buying all 5 k-on figmas, which I will probably do anyway when I get my first paycheck, as well as buy a Tewi, a Cirno, and possibly a Reisen fig with the second, and a Charlotte figma when it comes out.

I hate you all.

Arrived today, together with some cookies and a friendly letter... but without the ladle.

I checked the the original item description; it wasn't told explicitly, but neither was the item shown on the pictures; and it was known to come without a box (i.e. it's a before used item)... so it was my mistake. Anyway, I wrote to the seller to comment him on this (thought not really as a complain), and to give him my best wishes, there in Japan (althought is useless).

It's actually a vey nice figure, regardless. I did like it a lot. I might find something later, to subsitute the missing ladle...

On a different note: just in case, never buy garage kits from this guys:
They suck really hard (bad recasting, bad decals -no white ink-, unintelligible instructions booklet... *sigh*).

Though I remember Tohno mentioning the black paint of the strikers easily rubbing off on her legs on his fig blog, and after putting on the strikers I found out just how easily he meant. Also wrestling with her to get her to hold onto her rifle with 2 hands was a pain DAMMIT MIYAFUJI JUST HOLD ONTO THE GODDAMMED GUN WITH 2 HANDS. Though in the process of getting her to hold it properly the paint on the gun rubbed off on her shirt, I'm probably just gonna have to get a little aggressive with a q-tip and some water.

though I never noticed this in the anime, but that is not how you hold a rifle, the buttstock is under her shoulder, which would make recoil a big problem. Then again, I'm not sure a 14-year-old girl would be able to carry an autocannon in the first place...

My aunt came to visit a few weeks ago and gave me some cash. Managed to find one of these in a small online shop in Hawaii, made sure to call to see if they still had her in stock, and they did.

Surprising for a figure discontinued two years ago. Weeks of searching payed off. Now if only I could find a Dakimakura, my life would be complete.

I wasn't able to find any place that had a dakimakura of her in stock but I did find that there was at least one doujin circle that produced one.

I found the circles shop online (I think) but I don't know enough moon runes to figure out if they have any more of her in stock or would be able to make more.

Worst case you can try and find a high res image that you like that would work for a dakimakura (not that hard) and then have a custom one made.

Lucky I didn't check on TC until just now. I cancelled that order, it seems the store has a completely horrendous record and does not update it's webpage. The owner has a large record of scamming and never mailing goods ordered through them. I contacted my bank and cancelled all check clearings on my card set from the last few days. I'll just pay the extra cash and get the figure through .jp auctions.

Business bureau review of the store in question. It makes we wonder how a business like this is even allowed to keep running with such a terrible record.

Guess what? at the end, I did buy it...

Her price went down a little and I realized that, if I ignored one of my DEBT$, I could buy it right away. The figure itself should be of more than good quality (Kotobukiya/4-leaves production) and the store looks ok (they did make the shipment the very next day), so I'm just a bit worried about the customs but we'll see.

I also just hope nothing extraordinary happens next month so I can pay the rest of what I owe

The OVA? I enjoyed it...

Of course it's nothing like a seinen master-work or a humble-but-delicate piece (like, say, Makoto Shinkai's first shorts); but, for a side product of a Miku-doujin character (made just for the sake of her looks after some random song), they delivered a coherently enough story at least the realistic/scholar half with an attractive trade-mark artistic style and a decent portait of what we love to see: girls and their feelings through daily (yet difficult) situations... or so I think.

The soundtrack had some nice stuff, too; a bit in the style of Haruhi's Disappearance.
