I hope we see Lady Maria at Wonder Fest next month
>>7315251>What are your hopes and dreams for the figma line this 2019?Darkness, Tenryuu and lots of Sabers.
>>7315136you mean this ann?
>>7315270This guy would be great but figma would charge like 68 for him which makes him very difficult to army build
>still no Felix
>>7315279which line is fujiko from?
>>7315279The only one of those that I don't have is the Persona figma.
>>7315297figuarts I think
Rikka Shiina just shipped. Already have Miyo, and Ena will probably be here in March.I'm well on my way to my squad of tactical anime grills.
>>7315078>want to collect all the BRS figmas because i love the series and the designsGood taste anon. Good Luck to complete collection without expensive ones.
>Aqua is being held for ransom by Canada PostWell, so much for being able to dodge customs fees with air parcel.
>looking to preorder Ichi>get a 20% coupon from usagundamstore begging me to order from them again or something>Yeah I know >usagundamstore, I ordered from them one time>worked it down to like ~65 dollars, order it from them because I felt like throwing them a bone, support ""local"" and whatnot>current year>not shipped yet>still listed as preorder on their website>could have just bought her with my december amiami orderNever again.
>>7315340That's the thing about ordering domestically, as a burger: our stores usually get stuff a month later, because of boat shipments.
who preordered her?
>>7315348really liked the face on this one, shame about the legs.
>>7315264I get that they won't know what people want if people don't tell them, but I'd feel like such a clown drafting that out. >I want a line of Castlevania figmas, and a and more Vanguard nendos like Misaki, and a Palutena figma, and a Samus Returns Samus figma, and more fire emblem merch, and Zone of the Enders stuff, and a SMT Demonica figma, and a [ect].
>>7315373That's because you're a shit taste clown.
>>7315348Why does this exist...
>>7315348Didn't really like the design. Kinda boring. Just a schoolgirl with funky feet and a pretty gun.
>>7315412It literally epitomizes the figma line, dude.
>>7315348She's cute but kinda boring.
MY BROTHER, COME JOIN ME...
don't forget to tell GSC that you want Lina Inverse figma
>>7315468But I don't want your literal who from forgettable 90s fotm #12640?
>>7315279Thanks, she really is a little smaller that my Yuki and has a smaller head, but I guess I was just tired when I got her yesterday
>>7315397Yeah, we really need more generic anime girls better ask for that.
>>7315468how ? poll ? post link senpai
Every day, I wake up, go to Goodsmile, and check if Priss is up for preorder.
>>7315658who is piss
>>7315468I have. multiple times. I don't think they give a shit.>>7315470child. stop.
>>7315468I would rather have beldandy.
>>7315996why do people think everyone on here is mad all the time?
>>7316030Because figmoe is incompetent at keeping people in line and will drop his name field to snap back if you call hom out on it. Fucking third worlder
>>7315322Hell yeah man, me too, TOM is gonna have my balls turn blue because their shipping are so far away
>>7316177Dat ass looks weird
>>7315262Pretty good use of that one Darkness figure and clear plastic for that 'missing' accessory for Aqua.
>>7315348Me. It's nice. The one with the book and the railgun (?) has always been my favourite look. I'll wait patiently for her while getting the others as far as I can see.
>>7316177Good balance. I like the idea of the sheathe being sturdy enough to use in combat as well.
>>7316252yeah. it's very oddly posed.>>7315322I can't wait for Ena to come out. She'll be my first and possibly only LA Figma.I've been buying Little Armory guns for her so when she finally arrives she'll have a nice little cache waiting for her.I've been thinking about getting this for her as well.
>>7315661I heard about this new idea called reading, perhaps you should try it.
>>7316265Ena comes with a Type 89, anon. Though that one you posted has a scope
>>7316265>full sleeves with stockings EnaWhy didn't they make this obviously superior choice? Smh
quick question here: i recently ordered from mandarake, and chose DHL as shipping. it was estimated to be ~2850 JPY, which is a bit high but i could deal with it. but when the order was actually processed, the cost turned out to be 3650 JPY. i know DHL is priced based on volume of the package, so did they just stuff the thing in a huge box or something? i'd rather not pay that much in the future
>>7316308have you heard this new thing called shitposting? or maybe i should say pissposting. you should try it
>>7316265I have an M4 coming in for Ena so she'll match with Miyo and Rikka. I need some other good figmas to join the squad, but most of them don't matc the aesthetic.
>>7314325the end result will be a miscolored abortion, both strength figmas have darker skin compared to most figmas: ova is light brown and tv is full brown. using the torso of revo queen blade ymir or alice will be better since it could match a bit better the color. but the revos have their necks sculpted with the head rather than being sculped into the torso so you have to get a neck from another figure, or hell you'll have to sculpt it, then there's also the fact that the qb figures have some other shit sculpted into their bodies so you will have to sand them a bit and repaint to get a full nude body.and even if you managed to pass all these hurdles, the figure will still look weird with different shades of skin color.tl;dr no matter what, you will have to enter into the realm of customizing figures and use almost every available loli figure to get a decent body
>>7315470>flavor of the weekyfw your average 12ep anime will probably never be as succesful as Slayers was
>>7315470>Not watching anime from all time periodsGo back to Crunchyroll.
>>7316830Animeonlys wanting it now? Dunno.
>>7316130>Because figmoe is incompetent at keeping people in lineHow do you expect him to do so? It doesn't matter if they have a trip or not, OPs are powerless.
Just bought a Batman figma. It's my first figma.
New buyer here, I've seen Samus Prime for $90 awhile ago but I heard figma tends to do rereleases? Does that change pricing at all and if so should I wait?
Came across a store in Akihabara selling military weapons in a 1/12 size with anime girls on the box. I’m familiar with anime stuff but I haven’t seen this stuff before.Is it a part of a series or are the guns useable for other models? Any recommended figurines to get that work with them? Or is it just a series of small firearms you can own.
>>7317038Yes, it's maybe change price a little.But rerelease may be worse than first edition (see Snake from MGS).Also this is nintendo character about nobody cares so I don't thing there will be rerelease.Just buy KO and that's it.
>>7317052Oh boi... You discover Little Armory.
>>7317055Yeah I think those are the guns there. Are they accessories that go along with other models or something? I’m thinking of picking a couple boxes up and maybe a figma when I go back there.
Just opened my Ichi. Wow, it's quickly become one of my favourite toys. Almost flawless, very photogenic, love the arms and shoes details. Just lovely all around. So glad I preordered.
>>7317055Any idea where those neat containers come from?
>>7317062It's gun models in 1/12 scale. More then accessories. Some of them come with additional accessories like nightvision, holsters or knives. Few cover girls have their own figmas.P.S. adding LA guns make any figma better.
>>7317168Man, I've been fighting the urge to do the whole Little Armory/Figma girl thing, but that VAL is calling me. Chances of them doing a VSS or SVD, in you opinion? I know Platz has the SVD already covered, but I figured I'd ask.
>>7317038Reissues sell for the same MSRP as the original run, so if the going price for a figure has increased on the aftermarket, then the reissue price will be lower by default. However, waiting on reissues in the hopes of saving less than like $50 usually isn’t worth it, because reissues are an “if” rather than a “when.” If/when the reissue doesn’t happen, you then have to choose between paying the aftermarket price (which by then will have inflated even further) or not getting the figure. $90 is a pretty good price considering Samus retailed for like $70 before store discounts, so I’d just bite now if you really want her.
>>7317212Seems more like a Play Arts Kai thing.
>>7317278Svd is in near future. It picture was at some of wonfes with val, aug and some other guns already released.Vintorez - didnt think they will release it. BUT you can combine Val with spare wooden butt from PKM. I seen folks did it in tweeter.
>>7317375Thanks for the info!
>>7317054>>7317299Yeah I've wanted a good Prime fig for years so I'll definitely grab it asap now, I just thought I'd ask here before though, thanks! Any tips to avoid bootlegs?
>>7316265What figmas can actually use Little Armory?
>>7317591Unless there's a design limitation then most if they can hold the grip decently enough. Otherwise you need to resort to buying the Little Armory hands for properly handle stuff like rifles but the plastic on some are pretty soft from what I ordered back then.
>>7317630I see, I just tried one with Hana but noticed hands don't work with it.
>>7316317True enough. But having 2 and the mat would be cool.>>7316322I actually like her jacketless.>>7317591most figmas and figuarts with gun holding hands (articulation willing). I find them a bit small for most Hasbro figs. But they work with Leia, so I'd imagine they'd work with any of their smaller figures.
>>7317591>>7317639if your figma doesn't have gun holding hands you can always buy a set.I've been considering buying a flesh set. The plastic on the gloved ones seem a bit soft to me
>>7317309He's wishing that because Play Arts is garbage, even more so than figma sometimes.
>>7317168I have that tracksuit Rin. I was thinking she'd look pretty good with a rifle, like a Russian assassin or something. Seeing this I'm definitely gonna get some LA gear now.
>>7317168I love LA, but I want more LA specific models. It looks weird to me to have Rin or Saber or some idolshit character rocking out with an M4.
>>7318088I get it, but it's not really any different to what they already have: random animu schoolgirls in full gear.
>>7315262newb herehow long does it usually take for a "coming soon" figure like Musashi or Gudako to become an actual figure?
>>7318425all the way from a couple of months to a few years
>>7318425>>7318469Also keeping in mind that once it goes up for pre-order it can take 4-8 months to come out.
>>7318425Whenever the fuck they feel like.That said, Fate is MF's bread and butter so Musashi and Gudako will probably be fast-tracked.
>>7318490>>7318478>>7318469thanks for the replies anonswill just have to wait I guess
Interested in buying golgo 13 figma.Wondering if their are bootlegs to watch out for?
>>7318660I'm not seeing any so you're safe but he does demand a higher aftermarket price.
>>7317212there'll be a Bring Arts along with more of the cast. Can't wait.
>>7315251I once buyed a figma... Was a fake... I can't trust humanity anymore
>>7318817Probably because you cant speak English you retard.
>>7318822Maybe I ordered the fig in your mom's bed faggot
>>7315262What figure is on the right?
>>7319000Looks like a figure of Darkness (non-articulated) kitbashed with other figures.
>>7317212I wish a Tifa figma, anime style.Not some play arts garbage.
>>7319228That bike + sidecar. Source on that? I need it.
>>7319228Love that look for Jeanne.
It could be nice if little armory did more historical stuff, WWII or older.
>>7319228Source on Bulma body?
Does gsc send replacemant parts for older figmas?
>>7319413Won't lie, the thought of a Little Armory StG 44 with the ZG 1229 infrared system as an option is pretty nice.
>>7318969What is it with low IQ subhumans and their shitty mom jokes? Nice one shithead
>>7319746>Does gsc send replacemant parts for older figmas?I'm imagining that if they have parts they will send them. Will they make new replacement parts when they run out? hell no.
>>7319074Yeah,havent really got into ff7(or any ff)yet but the character designs are really nice.
>>7320018Why is a custom 100x better the the PA
>>7320018holy shit , this custom is fucking great .PAK is utter shit besides this based non official Yuffie .
Anon who have the Thinker, did you get the normal/bronze ver or the plaster ver?
>>7319649I think it's a sozai-chan body.
>>7320022soul vs soulless
>>7320188On a side note, what are some other interesting figure lines that don't use IP's (stuff like anime, video games, capeshit), other than figma's Table Museum, Nevoltech's upcoming Geo series, and real life/historical figures?
>>7319399Why is she always so lewd?
My friend fucking ham handed my David and the arm came clean off the ball joint. No use asking Amiami for help cause it's been ages since I received it so how good are Goodsmile support with replacement parts?
>>7321184Okay someone else already talked about replacement parts above, call me a fag.
>>7315373>and a SMT Demonica figmaA man if taste I see.The Hero, Aleph, Demi-fiend, and doomguy are my dream figmas. At the least I hope we can get some more demons down the line.
>>7320890She's french.>>7321186Nop, sorry... fag.
My most wanted figma of all time.too bad it will never happen.
The YouTube reviews for widowmaker are actually positive. Looks pretty solid
>>7321308I feel like if it happened we would get monkeypawed and it would be one ofvthe shitty designs from the more recent games. RE1 classic Jill would be great.
>>7321338Yeah,this one probably.
>>7321456Now that I'd buy.
>>7321334yeah it's just genji that's shit
>>7321338We would just get the ugly ass not-zero suit Samus design.
>Guts: Berserker Armor ver. Repaint/Skull Edition>GriffithAny pics of these?I've suddenly found myself in need of some Berserk figures, and Figma is the only thing that doesn't require a mortgage on my house.
>>7322194Man, if only there was a link in the OP to a website that listed every figma made...
>>7321334She's cute. Can't wait for D.Va and the inevitable Mercy.
>>7321456What the fuck happened to Jill?
https://ameblo.jp/figma/entry-12428530822.htmlSaber 2.0 getting ANOTHER re-issue
>>7322198I would love to grab the D.Va one but I just recently got Tracer because she was $18 at Best Buy so I'm hoping to grab more of the OW characters down the road on clearance
Well gee, I guess this works. RIP guy who wanted my damaged Aqua.
>>7322819Free GSC replacement parts? Those are like 50% of the figure. WTF?
>>7322829I guess they didn't want to send a whole new figure out but yeah it's like 50% of the figure anyway, kind of weird.
>>7322819Yeah, they're pretty good on replacements parts. I hamhanded my miyo a few threads back, so I'm waiting for the reissue to just get new parts.
>>7322819>>7322829>>7322835Nothing weird about it. If they sent full replacement figures people would be a bunch of douchebags and take advantage of it to profit and/or get free shit.This is why AmiAmi went from having the best customer service to just having "ok" customer service. People came here bragging about how they'd get whole free figures or pretend some bootleg was a real thing to get a free figure when their legit official figure was perfectly fine.TLDR; People are scum and it's why GSC has you jump through so many hoops for support and only sends the parts you actually need.
>>7322857Yeah that's understandable, at least my Aqua isn't full of marks now.
>>7322819Props to GSC, I'm really impressed. Enjoy your figure anon
>>7322403YESSSSSSSSSSSSS I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS
>>7322819shit i might have to start buying from GSC if they take care of you this well
>>7322881how do you know that there aren't 10 horror stories for every 1 success?
>>7322857I've had problems with GSC support in the past, though, too. My Ryuko had some sort of misalignment/glue problem with her back vent so the stand hole wouldn't fit. GSC support swore up and down that this was as intended and visual flaws inside/covered up weren't covered for replacements.Thankfully the company I bought through had a GSC rep who understood the issue and got a replacement order for me.
>>7322835Imagine it this way. Two people have an issue with the same figure. The first person has an issue with the head and the second has an issue with the legs, instead of sending out two whole figures to solve those problems, just pull apart one figure and give the parts out to those people, leaving you with leftovers in case a third person has an issue with any other part. It's the smarter option, cheaper shipping if you have to pay for that too.Get enough issues over multiple figures and you could have enough parts for some weird Frankenstein's monster.
>>7322899>frankensteining some figma girl out of damaged partsi actually want to do that if I get legitimately screwed up parts that wouldn't be scamming GSC
>>7318817Never buy a fig for 12$
>>7322403I tried to watch this anime and it's so fucking garbage. How is it so popular that it dominates the Figma line? What do nips love about it? Just curious.
So did y'all get you Darjeeling and Pekoe pre-orders in? This month get hypeinb4 delay
>>7323203>How is it so popular that it dominates the Figma line? What do nips love about it?Fate was a "precursor".
>>7322403Someone post that print screen of the guy that was in denial.
>>7323267Saber and Miku
>>7322403You do know that Red Saber isn't Artoria Pendragon, right?I only buy Artoria Pendragon, my waifu.
>>7323272wow really? i didn't know that!
Lingerie model body figma when?
>>7322403Can someone explain to me, story wise, why there are five billion Sabers?
>>7323267>>7323271this, many flavor of the month series passed through the line, but miku and fate's signature character were a constant that has never changed since its inception, people used to joke about max factory wouldn't so far fetched in mixing both. black rock shooter and haruhi were the only ones that managed to reach them, but once both franchises ended, miku and saber were still the kings (or queens?)
>>7323203It's almost as if different people can have different tastes or something...
>>7323281Why are there so many Batmans?Why are there so many Iron Mans?Why are there so many Spider-mans?Why are there so many Optimus Primes?Because people love them and they fucking sell, you dimwitted ape.
>>7323292But they all have different names, and they all seem to exist at the same time.Other than stupid crossover events there's generally only ever one of any of things you listed.
>>7323203>I tried to watch this animeUnlimited Blade Works or Fate/Zero? Because the latter is easier to get into even though it was originally written as a prequel to the original Fate story. Unlimited Blade Works on the hand is in that odd spot of being the 2nd portion of said original story that won't make much sense unless you've already gone through that 1st portion (Fate route).
>>7322403Rip to the guy I sold a saber 2.0 to for $80 plus shipping
>>7323296Most of them are "what-if" alternate versions. The mobile game in particular has a lot of timeline nonsense, and more than a few of them are just noncanon joke characters. Mordred is her clone/child so there's the family resemblance, and there are a handful (Nero, Okita) that have absolutely nothing to do story-wise with the original Saber (Artoria) and just look identical to her due to the original's popularity (hell, they did a whole joke event taking the piss out of how many variants and clones she has).
>>7323296Saber is just the Servant moniker (e.g. Lancer, Archer, Assassin etc.), but the name "Saber" is most associated with the one from the first Fate entry (Fate/Stay Night), who is essentially a female King Arthur. With this in mind some of those Sabers are just alternate versions of the same character (OG Saber being the main one, Saber Alter being her corrupted version in-story from Heavens Feel, Saber Lily being alternate younger version etc.). Other Sabers that resemble the OG Saber are mainly aping her design due to her popularity even though they're meant to be different characters altogether (Nero Saber, Sakura/Okita Saber). Mordred is kind of a special case though, because even before all the Saber clones, she really was written to be the bastard offspring clone of the OG Saber in-universe and being a literal cloned homunculus is actually part of her story.That said, among those are other versions of the OG Saber, which basically amount to more what-ifs (older, younger versions, that lived different lives etc.),or gimmicky fanservice versions (maid, bikini outfits). The thing is though, with Type-Moon often playing up the idea of parallel universes, they can easily shove all of them together for the sake of crossover stories not unlike Batman or Spider-Man.Pic-related should give you a basic idea.
>figmas you would kill for but that will never get made
Is there a "best" version of BRS? I was gonna buy pic related, but I can't find any unopened ones for sale on mandarake, and there are no preowned ones on amiami, either. Also, my Black Gold Saw came today, and the stand feels a bit weak? It holds fine in normal poses, but can't support her in the air. Is this a problem with the stand, or the figma itself?
>>7323368Have you tried tightening the stand?
>>7323375Hm, I'll try it. I'm fairly new to buying figmas, so I didn't really know you could. Thanks.
>>7323368Stand's probably the issue. Just find another figma stand you can use, or tighten the stand joints with a screwdriver. Also, my opinion is that the PSP game BRS (BRS 2035 or something) is the best, because it has a very dynamic look and jet wings. But really she has so many versions that it's ultimately up to you.
>>7315272judging from the Hunter Lady Maria is gonna be the most detailed and generally epic figma gsc has ever released. she’d better have extended blood Rakuyos
>>7323368The stand has screws, tighten it but be gentle, you don't want to crack the thing like a moron.As for the best version of BRS it's kind of subjective. I personally love the 2035 version but I also like the original version a lot because I prefer the original Dead Master and obviously those two pair up most accurately.If you do go with the original version do NOT pull her apart at the waist, lot of people broke her that way. The anime version is fine though. It's just my least favorite in terms of source material and design. Has some neat gimmicks like the hood and the gun that opens up though.
>>7323340I am so fucking glad that, even after reading all of that, I still have no fucking idea what Fate is even fucking about or anything that happens in it.
>>7316177now I want this
>>7323359I would not only murder you and everyone in this thread, but also your family members and extended family if it would guarantee Outlaw Star figures of any kind.
>>7323406>7 magicians summon heroes from the past to fight in a battle royale for the holy grailThere, now you know.
>>7323368>or the figma itself?oh man, if you got one of the heavy figmas, RIP. If this is the case, it'll basically start breaking at all the joints and eventually fall apart. About a 1 in 100 chance of this happening on any given Figma, something about improper molding and too much plastic.
What are the chances we get a Xenoblade 2 figma?
>>7323422no chancethat's what ya got
>>7323384>>7323396i want to like the psp BRS, since it's almost the same as the amine version, but I feel like it isn't as cohesive design-wise as that one and the original. I was planning on getting only one version of each character (although i might shell out some more cash for OVA BGS, and maybe both versions of dead master). I also just really like that hood on the anime one, it's sick.Oh well. Strength's comin soon anyways, so I'm not gonna worry about unopened – and cheap – ones being out of stock.>>7323419I'm not sure if that's the case anymore, since she doesn't feel that much heavier than my Jeanne. Probably just the stand.
>>7315279What name of last two?
>>7323393Really hoping we see her at WonFes next month. I'd love to see more Bloodborne figures but two figures is more than most games get so I'm happy either way.
I sincerely hope there are a fuckton more Fate figmas announced and no /v/ermin figmas, just to watch this general seethe.
>>7315257I’m getting a little impatient. How’d they plan for a Nendoroid but not a Figma?
>>7323375>>7323426>>7323419Well, luckily, it seemed to be the stand. Tightened it up just a hair, and it's sturdy as fuck now.
>>7323447Fate Figma have been a staple for the line for years now so I actually expect them more often than not. While /v/shit can be nice just for variety's sake, it does bring in a lot of newfags that don't have a clue on how to handle Figma and what's usual for the line.
>>7323458Good to hear. I made up all that stuff about "heavy figmas", for the record. :^)
>>7323473Well there are heavy ones. The Animation STR is a heavy motherfucker with both fists attached. Moreso if you have four of them connected.
Do display risers with indents for figma stand arms exist?
>>7323517>Well there are heavy ones.Yeah but that's not what I was talking about.
>>7323289Which is exactly what I was asking about you retard, why specifically nips like it so much
>>7323556Not him, but my guess is because the Japs love medieval fantasy aesthetic and magic-themed things. I mean, they like other shit too, but look at how much anime and video games are based on such themes (most notably the Final Fantasy series).
>>7323473My Lynette broke two stands because they couldn't support her weight, which is ridiculous because her breasts are completely hollow.
>>7322403>https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/4431/figma+Saber+2+0.html>October 2019 release
>>7323223>So did y'all get you Darjeeling and Pekoe pre-orders in?I did, and hoping that they don't get delayed, but if happen I won't worry too muchI'm more worried that we didn't get more GuP figmas announced in the comming Wonfes next month
while the stand is tighter now, BGS is still really hard to pose. her hands like to pop off due to how they're made, and her hair really gets in the way of the stand (which seems like it would just be a problem with long haired figmas in general). oh well, she was very much worth it.>>7323473i mean i kinda figured you were bullshitting me after i couldn't find anything about it online lmao>>7323517strength shouldn't really count imo, she does have three stands after all. ultimate madoka is a better example
>>7323447>>7323472Most Fateshit is /v/erminshit based on that shitty cell phone game.
>>7323457easier to make nendoroids
bad frown company
>>7323434Just google yamato s.h.figuarts. One is probably named Yuki but other one..dont remember.
Is Nippon Yasan reliable enough to use?
>>7323359Fierce Diety Link
>>7323750Meanwhile, back in 2014 when she went up for pre-order the first time.
>>7323672Nah, if it hasn't appeared in Smash it's not /v/erminshit.See >>7320401 for a perfect example.
>>7323825>>7323750Still less of what the saberfag anon paid by getting her second hand >>7323319
>>7323319>gets shat on a second timeThis is great
GSC Release Update:>The following release dates have been confirmed:>Shipping out from the 17th January 2019:Max Factory - figma Warspite>Shipping out from the 21st January 2019:Good Smile Company - figma Alien: Takayuki Takeya ver.Max Factory - figma Darjeeling & Orange Pekoe Set Max Factory - figma Makoto Yuki (Rerelease)
>>7323359I wouldn’t kill for it, but I’d LOVE a Star Trek based Figma line someday. I doubt it’ll happen though.
>>7323903Yeah, because figmas of real people always turn out fantastic...
>>7322819>half figure replacementsJesus chirst. Did you ham-crushed half your figure? Guess I'll do them same to my figures and ask for free "replacements".
>>7323906Maybe not a real life version but an anime style redesign of some of the more prominent and famous characters would be cool.Like just imagine Kirk or Worf looking like a JoJo character,
>>7323910>Like just imagine Kirk or Worf looking like a JoJo character
>>7323422Very little unfortunately. Seems like something they would go for though.
>>7323472I mean, thats everyone at some point. /v/ shit is at least more diverse than fateshit.
>>7323906>NOT BUYING ANIKI FIGMA
>>7323359Akagi (the mahjong one not that one boatslut), more Guyver characters, Naga/Lina from Slayers, a manga style Devilman, Ichiro Irabu from Kuuchuu Buranko (any form) Kiyomaro and Gash from Gash Bell.
>>7323970Well yeah.It's an entire type of media while Fateshit is just one series.I have to admit that there are some interesting designs in the Fate series but GS just wants the sexy ones because those are the ones otaku would buy.
>>7323987Aniki 2.0 when?
>>7323368God i wish it was actual WRS picture.
>>7324044never, he ded
>>7323472Since Haruhi crashed and burned, you could say Fate is the foundation the figure line was built on.
>>7324169Is WRS bad or something? I've seen how her "wing" attachments are extremely loose, but she seems pretty good otherwise. Not to mention how she's pretty cheap on mandarake, so I was thinking about ordering her as well.
>>7324419I dunno, maybe i saw only bootlegs, but she looked like a shit mostly.
>>7323652I kind of want to buy her since she's a good release, but on the other hand I'm not a big Fateshit fan and all the Saberface has kind of made me dislike Saber.
>>7323750>>7323825I bought her for 40 usd flat when she came out.. Feels so good.
>>7324425Maybe is because you have ACTUALLY see bootleg pics of her>>7324042>but GS just wants the sexy ones because those are the ones otaku would buy.That's wrong, MF are making the popular characters, not the sexy ones, by your logic we would already have figmas for Netocris, Scheherazade, Ishtar, Bradamante, Hokusai , Da Vinci or Anne Bonny & Mary Read to name a few
Just purchased my first figma.What am I to expect?Pros cons
>>7324848Something you will no doubt hamhand in the first 10 minutes.

>>7324875This. My third in as many weeks should be here tomorrow.

>>7324868The only thing I no doubt hamhand in 10 minutes is your sloppy smelly mom you fucking clown shoe.

Thanks

>Shipping out from the 17th January 2019:Max Factory - figma WarspiteYesssss finally more bote

>>7324524>Hokusai , Da Vinci or Anne Bonny & Mary Readngl, would actually buy these. Especially Mona Lisa-chan.
>>7325165>Yeah, nah.Nice opinion, bro
>>7325165what are you, gay?
>>7325251>gay?Yeah, got a problem with that?
>>7324149Spikes getting a s.h. so u never know..
>>7322403I wish i liked fate...
>>7325320i'm so sorry
>>7325056Well shit. I lost the rear sight in the down position. Just shot off into the abyss wheb I cut it off the sprue. Thankfully, they provided one in the up position, so I was able to cut it up and make it look alright.
fellas, is there a way to tighten the actual stand peg to angular peg connection?some of my figures can't hold certain poses in the air, as gravity pulls them back down to a different angle due to the connection peg. i should also mention that the pegs won't fit all the way in the backs, but i don't trust myself to file it down or anything
>>7320018Back before Nomura went full stupid with his design work.
>>7325443i'm an idiot and just realized that this is happening because it won't go in all the wayi don't wanna push on it too hard, so i'll probably just mod itwarm water works well, right?
>>7325251No, I have taste.
I hate GS but am in love with the armor design, help
>>7325493Honestly skip him unless you love the armor design that much that you would fiddle and display him in all sorts of ways.
>>7325493I like the design too, but I've never seen the anime. Is it decent?Where can I stream it?
>>7325500Oh I got some ideas already>Joker summoning him like a persona>Yugi Summoning him like a duel monster
>>7325505As someone who loves the series, Skip the anime but listen to the OST. The light novel is alot more fun.
>>7325493Does it come with the glowing eye, I know the nendoroid has it.
>>7325513No he doesn't, fuck Max Factory for not including it and fuck anybody who buys it for encouraging them.
>>7325402you gotta be careful with those tiny pieces, i usually hold my finger on it while snipping it off so it doesn't fly away
>>7325508Also the manga is worth to check too
>>7325521Oh yeah the art is nice. Just I prefer reading and OST. But rankings it goesLN ≥ Manga >> Anime
>>7325513Technically the nendo only comes with the transparent eye bit, the light is a separately sold accessory
>>7325517I did that. And I was snipping it in a bowl. Still flew away.
>>7325526Yeah, the anime is nice, but in some moments feel a bit rushed IMO. like in the Farm Arc
>>7325543>Hiromi Sangyo's Milight 435R (sold separately) can be placed in the head part. Please note that the Milight does not come included with the product.https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/7834/Nendoroid+Goblin+Slayer.html
Got my Aqua Her leg was loose but I fixed that and replaced her brittle arm joints. I thought that anon was overreacting but it actually did just break with little/to no pressure. But it's all good. Don't like that I have to do that for a new figure but I don't have to worry now.
>>7325790Dammit.. just noticed her tit has this blue paint blob. For the price you'd think this shit would not get through the assembly line.
>get my Aqua in the other day>joints are fine>she's got a few small paint imperfections, but is otherwise perfectly finejust like nearly every other of the 100+ figma I've boughtGuess I'm just lucky.
>>7325796I had this come in the same time and has no errors. idk what happened with Aqua.
>>7325793those are wet lactation stains, accurate like the animu.is normal desu
>>7325806Clearly the swearshop worker that was assigned to paint them was a Darknessfag salty over the fact she hasn't been announced yet.
>>7325790>>7325793what the fuck is up with the QC on aqua??
>>7325796mine tooI figure these guys are the people who cancel lots of orders or something
>>7325920What does that even mean?
>>7325940Well I don't cancel orders. So there goes that stupid theory.
>>7325920>>7325940>not getting a product you paid 60+ dollars for fixed
>>7325069Don't move. I'll all a WAAAAH-mbulance for you.
>>7325069holy shit the anger
>>7325920Best I can figure is these idiots are opening them right when they arrive and don't give them time to warm up after being outside in the cold.
>>7326219Literally used hot air to prevent it from breaking and it still broke. But replaced the joints whatever. My main problem was paint issues. And you can't blame that on a meme "muh hamhands"
>>7326219it's multiple people posting poor paint apps and the same exact joints breaking across all of their figures. stop sucking corporate dong and let people get what they spent money on fixed.
>>7326364Forget about him. Guy probably owns like 1 figmas and tries to act like some hot shit while many have almost 100 figmas and never ran into that many issue until Aqua. It's a bit disappointing but aside from all her flaws, she is cute as hell. So I guess it's in character.
she's perfect, bros. just fucking stellarstill waiting for STR to arrive tho
>>7325507>>7325530I know where I am and I'm admitting this: I'm not really into anime.Having said that I'll ask: is streaming anime not feasible?
>>7326770>feasibleWeb streaming is inferior, used by casuals. If you go to /a/, most of the regulars will torrent their shit.
>>7326770streaming anime is a great way to get a virus on your computer.
Pretty much every fig I got is a good guy. I need me some bad peeps to balance it out. Any figmas or any other ones you'd recommend?
>>7326794>Cooking a whole pineappleShe IS evil.
>>7326659I'm glad you like her anon.
Finally got my payment email for Warspite. Now to wait for thighs.
>>7326811i know you're just patronizing me but thanks anyways
>>7326794Figma Izaya Orihara. Edgiest guy on my mind.
Finaly she came. One of the best figmas on my shelf now. And definitely better then Bionic JK.P.S. i wonder, why characters from minor franchise/lines have so many accessories now. And characters from popular titles have so little.
Any figmaes with pajamas?
>>7327194Bananas in Pajamas figmas when?
>>7324875I only bought 4 in a decade, it's not that bad if you're not interested in Fate.
>>7325790how do you replace the arm joints?
>>7327383I had spare joints. If it broke and a piece is in there, just heat the area and scoop it out with tweezers.
>>7326887No I'm genuinely happy since I own one myself.
>>7327100>P.S. i wonder, why characters from minor franchise/lines have so many accessories now. And characters from popular titles have so little.maybe because the selling point of the popular characters is the character itself, so they take advantage of that an offer less accessories (less accessories = cheaper to make), on the other hand more obscure characters, not having popularity as their main selling point, need more accessories to catch the attention of the buyers. also the cost of the licences it's a factor
>>7326659Welcome to the herd anon
>>7327201I think they'd suit Figuarts more.
>>7325505It kinda utilizes rape as a shock factor too much.Beyond that it's standard fantasy shlock with some fun nods to tabletop RPGs.Honestly, the monly remarkable thing about it was the controversy.
>>7325796My aqua's fine too as far as I can tell.There was maybe one paint transfer on her leg that I rubbed away with some nail polish remover.I have above 50 and below 100 figmas and have had some figmas with QC issues. It's to be expected when you collect so many.
>>7327642My Aqua came with her leg joints not connected properly because of her panties, fixed it easily.
>>7327612>>7325505a friend of mine read the mango, and he said it was good, but he recommended against me reading it because of all the rape, as he knows I cant really handle that kind of stuff.so if you're like me and that kind of thing bothers you then give it a pass
>>7327726>>7327730>>7327732And you felt the need to post this garbage, why, exactly?
>>7327732I think the head is slightly too big for the body. It only looks kinda ok in this shot since the head is further back.
>>7327701It's the manga and subsequently the anime that tries to fetishize the rape, the original light novels don't. It still has rape and fan service in it, but the rape is treated as something horrible and is never directly shown and the fan service is saved for the more appropriate moments.
>>7327701>he recommended against me reading it because of all the rape, as he knows I cant really handle that kind of stuffWhy are you here.
>>7327816i havent noticed much rape on /toybut maybe I just dont go to the same threads as you
>>7327680Same problem easy fix. That thong makes it all worth it.
>>7327732>>7327730>>7327726Fagmoe never post shit like this again.
>>7325069>Unironically makes a your mom joke>Thinks he has any right to call anybody else an endgy teenagerNice projection there broseph.
How many "generations" has figma had? I know itheye've had 3 different standard packaging itterations and the figures swapped from those built-in wrist joins to ball hindge joints after Miku 2.0 but have there been any other major changes in the line?
>>7328357Pop up shoulder joints. As i remember was used on saber 2.0 first. But not all modern figma have them.
>>7328448Like the ones Satsuki has where it's the half ball peg you can pull out?
Have there been any updates on Megumin? Aqua experienced a delay and I'm wondering if she will as well. I didn't order her through GSC, I used ami instead so I don't think I got an email saying whats up with her.
