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.

No, seriously: if you mean about PVC mass production, I don't really know.
If you mean about designing or assembling a garage kit, this are a few links you might find interesting:

>> No. 1182 [Edit]
I meant mass production, yeah. I guess you just contact Kotobukiya and ask them to make your figurine...?
>> No. 1183 [Edit]
I'm no expert, but I belive the process is something like.

Manufacture decides on what character to make and what pose, what materials, and so on, probably making concept sketches first.

Then when when it's decided, a sculptor sculpts a figure out of a clay and presents it for approval, changing it where need be.
After they are satisfied with the model, I believe they'd make a mold of it, but covering it in a substance that would take it's shape then harden, they'd then make another model using that, a prototype, not clay buy not finished, they'd use that to decide if the fig is good to go and how they'd paint it.
They'd take the fig off to get photos taken, and and box art done, then using the mold and programing some robots on the assembly line to paint the things, mass production starts, although I'm sure it's mostly made my machines, I bet there's someone somewhere on the assembly line, at least making sure it's all going okay.
then there's the matter of letting stores and suppliers know about it, and taking orders, shipping them out in bulk amounts to the business.

again, this is just what I believe it to be like, for all I know, it might just be all magical fairies.
>> No. 1184 [Edit]
If you want them to mass produce a figure to your own taste, I'd recommended sucking large amounts of cocks and bribing out the ass the people in charge, like that Danny cho guy that got a figma made of his website's mascot.
>> No. 1185 [Edit]
Thanks, but I meant if some random guy already has a figurine made, how the figurine gets picked up by a major manufacturer for production. I don't expect you personally to know, I'm just wondering if anyone does.
Actually, you might be on to something. Danny Choo just made a whole blog post about how Raemz did some character designs for him. Since Raemz is part of 4-Leaves, and Danny Choo is huge in the otaku world, maybe he put in a good word for them or something.

I love the Asuka and Rei motorcycles you have. I've always wanted to get the one for Asuka, but actually the one where she is in a different pose. (Another version of the same figure maybe?) How much did you pay for each?

Guess I should also post the last figure I bought.

The actual figure is looking the other way because I think her back looks great in that pose as well as the detail on the outfit's back.

Sometimes I look at figures too much in a normal front pose, when a side or rear pose looks great as well.

USD 120 each, on eBay, but it was more complex than that...

The original PVCs went out of stock (and auctions) ages ago; the only thing one could find then (and maybe now, IDK) were re-casted garage kits. I bought a (cheap) pair, just to find that the motorcycle pieces were very poorly done (indeed; there were even missing parts), for a model that demands such a complex assembling; the figures weren't all that bad, thought. I kept searching and then I found this pair of nicely finished kits, with bases and all; the thing was: they were the X-rated versions; after a lot of thinking (and saving), I decided to buy them, with the idea that someday I shall change the figures for the "dressed" ones I kept (when I finally get my ass to finish them); but I got accustomed to their nudity, so maybe I'll keep them just like they are now. Also, to take in consideration: they arrived slightly (and not so silightly) broken, mostly the motorcycles, so a bit of gluing was necessary (they are extremely fragile).

I think I know what other Motor-Asuka you're talking about (pic related; the colors might differ); it's also available only as a garage kit now (finisehd or not), as far as I know.

Nah, the end of the striker units are the same green color as the part of her socks that they come in contact with.

also, since her coat is dark, even if the gun's paint does rub off onto it like with Yoshika, it wouldn't be nearly as noticeable.

I've put in a pre-order on this:

I'm embarrassed to say that this will be my first ever figurine. Figurines are to me an expensive luxary, so I've always thought that if I ever got one - and only one - it would have to be something special. Since I first saw it, on February 2010, I knew it would have to be this; and this is about as special as it gets for me. Release date is late January.
>> No. 1761 [Edit]
No reason to: on the contrary. For me too, there were years before I could afford (and have an actual bank account to start) buying those beautiful amazing figurines I could only watch pics online, again and again (wich also contributed to many of them prices going over the moon)...

Anyway: welcome and best of luck.
>> No. 1762 [Edit]
Thank you!

I might get another one if I feel good about this purchase; maybe if a good looking Patchouli design ever were to surface.. I could even go for some self-assembly -and paint kits, as I'm confident in my painting abilities. I'd have to get a new set of hobby paint, though - which would add to the expense. It might still be worth it, if the price is low enough to dodge the tax limit in my country. You know, with tax duty and shipping costs, this figurine will end up costing my twice as much as the asking price; but I guess that's part of the deal..

So I bought this at a little import shop in China town in chicago. It was about 14 dollars with taxes. I have to say that despite it being a very simple cheap kit, it was easy to put together and rather detailed for how cheap it was. Good kit for kids to get into Gunpla with. I sort of hope Sunrise and Bandai's plan works and they get some younger kids into the Gunpla scene. The instructions on how to put it together were easy, and just in the bottom of the box (not even a paper manual). There isn't even any reading invovled at all, everything is nicly color coded and simple.

In conclusion it was an okay buy. I might post some pics of a few gunpla kits I hope to put together this weekend later if I remember.

Does Otacute charge you for the purchase when you do the checkout or when they get the item in stock when you preorder?

I.e. Did they charge you when you made the order or are they going to charge you when they get it in stock, before they ship it to you?
>> No. 1854 [Edit]
They send you the invoice and charge you when it's ready to ship, before shipping it.

also good to note that their prices fluctuate, not just from sales, but changes in the usd/jpy exchange rate and supply/demand.
but what they charge you in the end, is what the price was when you originally placed the order.
just for example, if you preorder a new ika fig at $40, and after five months it gets released but they markdown the price to $30 (or put it on sale), you'll still be charge the same $40.
but sometimes they can also go up in price.
something to keep in mind.

Bought this kind of on a whim after having been watching macross7
Fig is just a trading fig that cost me like $3
but I don't think they ever made any other figures of this character.

She's kind of a mysterious nameless character that has short cameos in every ep and almost never says anything.
Tried to do some research to find out what the deal is with the her, but couldn't find anything.

The colors are a little off, I might do some work on it latter if/when I get some paints and stuff.
Some of the parts wouldn't stay in place very well, especially at the hip joint, where it would easy come apart.
The legs are kind of wobbly, almost like rubber.
and the stand was just plan out confusing, with no directions on how to put it together, it has multiple arm parts, and two places for poles, but none of the poles seem to be the right length, one of them has a 90 degree bend in it for some odd reason, ended up using one that's actually taller than the fig itself.

This is amazing, and I really like what they used to make the tentacles since they can be set to any direction. The only bad thing about it is that the wire inside the tentacles could pierce through the rubber-like material if you play with them too much.

I always thought most Nendoroid look kinda weird, even for super deformed chibis. ( I think many look like short and fat versions of their counterparts to me) this on the other hand pretty accurately represents the character it's based on.

Funny that I sold the japanese life Nendoroid playset I had not long ago, didn't have any figs that really went with it...

I just ordered my first fig. To be honest, figs were never something I was particularly interested in, but this Inazuma one looks cute and was incredibly cheap, so I just couldn't resist.

Also, I thought it would be quite neat to put her beside the actual ship she's based on, so I also ordered my first model kit. I'm actually extremely worried about how the assembly is gonna go, as a complete lack of experience and knowledge with these coupled with absolutely zero arts and crafts skills and a massive case of clumsiness is a perfect recipe for disaster. I do hope that if I take my time and research a bit, it might end up looking vaguely like a boat at least.

This showed up today. Shame I only have the Miho to go with it for the time being.
Thing also needs a fair bit of work with detailing, it's completely unpainted bare plastic.

So a while back I saw bootlegs of the figma archetypes were popping up on ebay. I felt this was a good thing due to the offical ones being insainly expensive and uncommon, and for no good reason.
I got one for under $20 compared to the $80 the offical versions would run. You know, I wasn't really expecting much from a bootleg, but I figured there's be no way they could fuck up something so simple. It showed up with some very visible dark spots on the chest, head, and some of the hands. The real funny part is the hands included with it are almost random. it came with two repeats, and two that are missing.

I couldn't help myself, he's just too cute.
It's a bit small but I don't regret the purchase one bit.

Just picked up this fig from the post office today. First figure I've bought in a while, and I've always been a sucker for nendoroids.

Congratulations, anon, they both look amazing. I'm not even a Zelda fan and I'm slightly envious.
>> No. 3128 [Edit]
Thanks but they're released until May, I just preordered them. The thing is they were finally made; it was ridiculous that the most beautiful concept art from one of the most reputed videogame franchises ever, didn't get medium range figures for over a decade.

I got him at a Gamestop for $15, of the two I check this was the only one I found. They also had one Tails and both store had some Knuckles plushes but neither had any Sonic plushes. It's nice to have this one since neither of the Eggman versions, Classic/Robotnik or Modern/Eggman (whatever you want to call them at this point), have many plushes at all that are very good. This one has a very nice fuzzy feel to it and it's nice to play with his noodle-like limbs and feel his mustache. He's nice and squishy so I'm glad I bought him, this line is much better than the usual Sonic plushes that have been released and look very cheap.

My Mamako figure arrived. I think this is what is called a scale figure but I’m not entirely sure, I just know it’s probably the biggest figure I own so far. Hopefully there won’t be too many more because those things take space. Thankfully this one wasn’t particularly expensive but that seems to show. There are parts in the mold where the plastic isn’t completely uniform and smooth. All the important details are done well but it definitely has a cheaper look as you can hopefully see in this higher resolution picture I’ve posted.

The cuts are not extremely well done. The paint seems to extend past edges like on the frills of her skirt, the collar, the elbow straps, and just about everything on her outfit that is a fabric. The armor pieces and leather straps don’t seem to have this problem as severely.
The details themselves all look like what they need to look like. All of the important things on her design are there with added folds on her skirt. and her pantsu
I don’t know how figures are made but the mold looks a little gross and odd at times. The torso looks good and the dress extends just slightly out from her back as if to look more like actual clothing yet the breasts seem to bulge just a bit from the breast section of her dress as if they strain the outfit. I don’t know if that was intentional to make it look like her breasts are bigger than the outfit shows or if it’s a mistake in the plastic but somehow it looks a little gross here. What also doesn’t help is that if I look at the plastic too closely on her skin and hair it looks a bit gross there too. I know it’s plastic so obviously it’s going to look like it but I thought figures would pretend to look like anime skin a little better, so completely smooth, yet this has a kind of synthetic shine with slight imperfections, a kind of “grain”, though I don’t know if that’s the word. I suppose that is an inevitability of plastic. The skin has some imperfections such as slight lines, likely having something to do with the molding. The hair lines are all there and the hair gets darker in certain spots so there was definitely attention to detail on this. Lastly she has a slight yellow spot on the back of her left leg that looks like some kind of paint got stuck to it or it might not have been smoothed down properly. It shouldn’t be hard to just scratch that off with my fingernail but it’s still an imperfection I feel the need to mention, even if it’s only exclusive to my particular figure. The base is a plain white circle-shaped base. No logo, no ground environment, nothing.

I paid $35 for this figure and got, by my own standards, some good quality for it. I think I like it a little more than the other Mamako figures I have seen out there. They look like good figures that keep her character in mind but they seem to focus on fanservice while this one focuses on, what I feel at least is, the central part of her personality: a mother. Her arms are open, her fingers spread out, her palms facing towards you but still angled down and out, her head tilted slightly with her eyes focused on you who receives her soft yet enthusiastic smile. It conveys everything that I felt was most important about Mamako as a character and for that I prefer it over the alternatives I could have bought. Those figures probably look nicer and I would be lying if I said I didn’t want a figure of Mamako in a bunny suit, having her clothes be melted off by the slime, a shiny one-piece swimsuit, or holding groceries, but what I like most is the pose that communicates most effectively who she is and directs her affections towards you. It’s encouraging, cute, and faithful to Mamako’s personality without giving you more of the “hot milf” trend that I’ve grown sick of. I could live without those other figures that I would need to pay well over $200 for so I can look at some hot mom booty, something I could just look up pictures for. But cute mommy hugs are rare and the treasure I seek. Maybe someday I can buy myself a Mamako nendoroid but those are pretty expensive so it might not be too soon. Either way, I greatly prefer cute moms over sexy moms so having something of the former makes me very happy.

Despite my usual habits of making long-winded posts, I think that is just about all I can say this time without this post becoming even more tangential. If you want to read a little more about the quality, see my post about my swimsuit Mamako figure (>>3794) except this one is, surprisingly, a little worse. I know this is just a prize figure so they aren’t usually the pinnacle of quality but still, it’s strange to imagine and see that a smaller figure made just for holding down a ramen cup lid actually has higher quality than a larger figure that I thought would have been easier to add finer details to. Not to mention that anything the ramen figure does wrong has excuses for it’s shortcomings. With all that said, contrary to my many listed complaints, I’m very happy with the figure. The main reason I’m listing all these is to contribute a post and mention things that might be relevant to anyone on this board considering buying their own Mamako figure, the sort who would notice many more flaws than I did and much more easily. But the flaws I noticed aren’t the kind I would see unless I looked close, otherwise, they’re minimal. I personally would recommend it to any Mamako fans but I’m also not aware of how high or low some other figure collectors’ standards are so keep everything I wrote in mind.
