sup /toy/, I heard that the older Medicos Jojo figures might get a re-release soon. Does anyone know if this is true?I really want pic related but nowadays you can't get this fucker under ~100 bucks
Bump, where are my JoBros?
>>7522172A bunch of figures are being rereleased right now, all the part 2 figures are up for preorder so Part 3 figures are probably next but recolors never get reissued so it's likely going to be just the world first. Also, while the price hike on the world third has been bad, he's still nowhere near 100 usd when he pops up on mandarake. Two months ago they had both the second for 3000 jpy and the third for 4000. Hope this was helpful.
>>7522172He's a recolor so no, Medicos has an odd rule of never reissuing other colorways. If the World is getting a reissue then it's the 1st colorway and not 3rd.
When are they gonna fuck around and make some 2.0s
>>7522581Ask again after a few years at this pace.
I wanna buy it
I want a new Fugo whose colors are more inline with the anime.
baron zeppeli when?
>>7522359>>7522389>>7522415Thanks for the info guys! Does Mandarake ship to us only or international?
>>7523068I don't want to see this off topic, /pol/ image on my board for children's toys, anon.
>>7523211Then don’t look.
>>7523209They ship internationally from Japan, you should also search in Japanese for better results
>>7523211sorry anon, it's a cartoon the New York Times somehow approved, I hate /pol/ too
>>7522172>I heard that the older Medicos Jojo figures might get a re-release soon. Does anyone know if this is true?It's true, but there's some things to keep in mind; namely that medicos has historically never re-releases second/third colorways with the exception of part 3 Jotaro 2nd.>I really want pic related but nowadays you can't get this fucker under ~100 bucksYou can thank the anime for that shit. Most figures used to just be hard to find but ultimately inexpensive with a few high demand figures like WF exclusives breaking $80, but the prices on all the figures have been slowly creeping up in price with each successive part.I'm still pretty pissed that I held out for a standard release of D4C that's never gonna happen and now I'm probably stuck with the one I don't actually mind all that much but would look shitty with my squad of white Valentines.
>>7522682He usually goes cheap on Mandarake.>>7522700I’m surprised they haven’t jumped on this already. Then again it’s Medicos, they’re not known for intelligent decisions.>>7523540I’m still mad about D4C, man. Should’ve bit the bullet when I had the chance.
WHY IS PUCCI AND WEATHER REPORT SO TALL?! poor jotaro looks like a manlet
>>7524042Because the scale of the figures got larger as the line went on.Part 3 and 4 human figures look goofy as fuck next to figures from other parts with their short bodies and tiny heads; except for maybe Koichi who they couldn't make small enough to scale or the biker and gambler Rohans who came out after the figures got larger.Unfortunately, Medicos is super lazy and they'll never redo the old figures to not look like hot ass when displayed with new ones, and they completely bailed on Stone Ocean so we'll likely never get a Jotaro in the same scale the rest of the figures are now in.
>>7524061My scale autism is the worst. I need a part 6 jotaro so badly. I love his role in part 6 more than any other part.
>>7524084Better go in deep by learning how to customize really well because we aren't seeing shit for some time. God knows when the FoTNS SAS will be painted and put up for preorder and even more so when they revisit Stone Ocean for something that isn't just a reissue.
Who is actually behind Medicos? Do the people that work or sculpt for them have any public online presence? I imagine Medicos at this point as just 5 or less people working out of a small apartment sized space.
>>7523540Araki loves the white and green combo so they'll look good
I want that purple Hand figurine so bad, brosits so fucking nice
>>7524150Company information is here http://www.medicos-e.net/company/I'm not sure when it was updated though, the staff list says 35 people as of 2010.
>>7524150realizing Medicos and MEdicom aren't related blew my mind.
I am praying every day that good smile makes a jojo figma.
>part 5 and 7 are my favorite parts>Own all part 5 except Trish because lol>SBR SAS are basically $100+ each>If I wait longer it's just going to get worse when the anime dropsI never like to be a gatekeeper but I hate what the anime has done to this line because it's had zero effect on getting us more and higher quality products but completely destroyed the aftermarket.
>>7525068I'm personally waiting for the second color of the part 7 stuff. With my purple a Gyro, the pink Johnny, blue Diego, pink Valentine will look great together
>>7525068 I hadn't imagined that until just now. If we do get a Steel Ball Run animation, what price could the SBR SAS go up to?
>>7523540Some of these SBR colorways are disgusting. Johnny 2nd, Gyro 2nd, D4C 2nd. Diego's is good, and Valentine's is O K, but the choices of color are nothing short of strange.
>>7524289I wouldn't. Say what you will about dumbfuck medicos, but except for Gyro and some of the earlier figures, they pretty much hit it out of the park every time. A couple years ago goodsmile showed off a Figma Jonathan and it was terrible.
>>7525419The color choices aren't really strange, just kinda shit.Most 2nd colorways are blue, unless the 1st was already blue in which case the 2nd is pink/purple with green and blue accents.I personally woundn't mind seeing some more prominently warm colors to mix it up.
>>7525325I could see $180 baseline if there's no release
>>7525679If that's true, I'll be potentially rich! (Only potentially though. Not selling my boys.)
How much does Diego go for now? Thinking about selling mine.
>>7526041If only there was a way to check prices where you wouldn't have to wait hours for an answer. Hmmmmmm if only
>>7525068I was just in Akihabara the last couple of days. It's really grim. Shops that had a nice selection of SAS a couple of years ago now have practically none. What few figures they do have now all hover around ¥7k with ve2ey few exceptions. I can count the amount of SAS I saw for under ¥4k on one hand, and one of those was a loose Okayasu with no alternate pieces or base for ¥3800. I thought it was bad when the anime for Part 4 aired and you'd be lucky to find Kira 2nd for 9k, but at least you had the rereleases for Kira 1st, Jotaro, Josuke, etc for around ¥3-4k and could find plenty of other SAS around, be it Part 3 or Part 5. The new rereleases for Part 5 being around ¥6500 has basically cemented the line at a ¥3k price hike. The days of readily getting a SAS for ¥3500 or less are over.
>>7523540I literally cannot find any D4Cs online at all I've been searching for one since forever
>>7526191Yeah I was in Kansai over Spring Break and one of the big anime stores in Kyoto had a $140 Gyro and then a Magicians Red, Pucci and White Snake all like $70+ each. It doesn't help that everything is basically out of print
>>7523540>mfw like this one more then the pink one nowdon't touch my blue suede shoes
>>7527267I'm probably jumping on that D4C as well since those colors contrasts strongly. Though I feel silly for not noticing the white on the legs leading down to the feet since the green, blue, and black drew my eyes the most.
>tfw got the purple and pink variants of Kira and Killer Queen together for $120~
>>7527293He looks so good, the white is subtle and used sparingly and contrasts his shoulders so nicely. I don't know why people hate it so much I think people just don't like the light green...but man iono I feel like he has a very nice, striking and underrated pallet.
>>7527306nah, got them from a second hand shop in hamamatsu a year or two ago, shipped over to the UK at no extra cost, and under currently exchange rates was probably only about $100 for both new in box
>>7525422Bruh thats just an old prototype. If they made an actual figure it would be fire.
Does anybody know of a discord for jojo figures?
Looks like Gold Experience won't be much of a dancer
>>7527879We all may be closet homos but were not THAT gay.
>>7527299The more I look at it the more it grows on me, but something about the design still feels off. Maybe if the forearms were white? Or if the shoulders matched the feet?
>>7528296What threw it off for me was that I thought the shoulders were supposed to be navy. If they're black like another anon suggested I rather like the colorway.
>>7527293I just realized, are the little pink blotches supposed to look like the stitches in a baseball?
>>7526041ill buy it
>>7528357Apparently going off the Jojoveller Artbook box there's a small book that talks about stands with descriptions of Araki that seems to be the case from someone who translated the text.>I wanted a silhouette unlike any previous boss, so I made its ears pointed. I designed it after the image of leather being stiched together, like on a baseball. I like how that stitching looks.
>>7527906Kek. reminds me of the time a poster here got a clear version of the World with 2 left thighs.
>>7522359>but recolors never get reissuedIsn't white Kira/KQ a "2nd" ver?I ended up buying those, since the first version didn't get re-released.Still on the fence about Abbachio/Moody Blues.Not a big Part 5 fan, but only he and Diavolo/King Crimson interest me a bit.I had to order the Pillar Men at NY, but with how they jew the shipping costs nowadays, I had to take the cheapest option (boat), which means I'll see them end of the year if I'm lucky.Also still holding out for a blue-haired Jonathan.
>>7530158>Isn't white Kira/KQ a "2nd" ver?That's 1st, 2nd is the popular Blonde Hair and purple suit.
>>7528503Those are good books. Whenever I have a question about a stand or am arguing with an /a/utist I whip out the stand book and find the answer
I've read somewhere that pic related is supposed to be Araki's specific colors for Dio..kinda weird that he's supposed to have black clothing.Also, I hate them for making the Stand-Punch-Effect exclusive to this variant
>>7530546Most of the figures say "araki color specified"; it doesn't really mean anything.Sometimes there are some liberties taken in the color schemes(namely 2nd colors for blonde characters having grey hair), but most of the figures are based on some piece of araki's artwork.Also welcome to this line; where you need to buy every variant of a figure to do cool poses involving soundplates and effect pieces.
>>7530570>need to buy every variantThis is going to be a fun lesson for new comers if they see separate accessories and effects for specific releases.>Want of replicate Jotaro and Dio fighting with their stands clashing with multi-punches>need to buy up Jotaro 3rd for green punch effects, Star Platinum 1st, Star Platinum 2nd for the OraOraOra soundplate, Dio 2nd just for the yellow punch effects and The World 2nd for the MudaMudaMuda plate.>THEN you need to color coordinate since you only have green effects for Star Platinum and yellow for The World>also you need those 3 hole bases Medico's only sells at WF, otherwise you're going off to Mandarake for some to set the whole thing up.Pic related is a rough example (Never picked up Awakened Dio 1st or Dio 1st) but Medicos makes your wallet hurt for those specific setups if you missed out the original preorders. Better lube up new anons
>>7530621You can also get the fourth version of Jotaro that comes with both the punch effects and soundplate.
>>7530750If only they just sold those things separately..But it's Medicos. They don't care about profit.
>>7530546What we need for this.
>>7527310good shit. I got jolyne for 60 off the bst-- someone was selling a lot of sas for cheap. it's always good to check here once in a while
>>7530750Are they reissuing the pink Jotaro? Why do those say Wonfes Winter 2019?
>>7530987It's a WF exclusive so no. Medico's thing is making certain colorways only available at Wonfes for both seasonal events of Winter and Summer. Filthy Gaijin usually go through proxy sites or auction sellers for sales and eventually Mandarake.
>>7530996 I know about their rule, but was wondering why that photo had Wonfes Winter 2019 mentioned it the frame.
>>7531068I'm sorry for not understanding but I figured it's just a date for both of those figures. Not much else but then again I've hardly kept track on Medico's twitter posts. I doubt we would see any resale next Winter Wonfes.
>>7531068Because it came out during Wonfes Winter, back in February. Not sure what you mean by your question.
WHERE DO I FIND D4C REEEEEEEEEE
Honest question, what website can i use to get new Sas releases? Hlj?
>>7532414My go to is usually AmiAmi and HLJ. Not much else
>>7532414Honest answer: most new SAS releases are strictly WF, so Amiami and HLJ are never going to carry them. If you don't want to shop through a middleman on Yahoo Japan Auctions, your best bet is Mandarake.
Man, dose prices. My collection has got to be worth thousands now.
man I really hope part 6 figs get a rerelease. the aftermarket prices on Jolyene are rape
Where can I buy these?Literally every website I go to all I get is>sold out >sold out >sold outAt this point I'm wondering if it'd be worth it to just go to Japan
>>7534444As posted above, Mandarake, AmiAmi, and HLJ is your best bet. Obviously AmiAmi's preowned section is probably your best bet if you're after older releases but if somehow all of those sections are sold out for those specific SAS's you want then you're going to bite the bullet on Yahoo Auction Japan and outbid other buyers on top of proxy fees.
>>7534502Actually to add, On top of Mandarake for older SAS, there's Solaris Japan if they offer a decent deal compared to Mandarake. I've bought various figures off them and they are solid but always compare first.
>>7533197Yeah, she's pretty crazy. I was lucky enough to get her regular colorway years ago for market price, but earlier this week I bought her WF colorway for $160. (Which isn't too bad considering the ebay price is usually $100 more.)
>>7534444>Solaris Japana friend of mine recently went to Japan and he searched everywhere for The World for me, yet the prices are still extremely high, even in Japan..
Ok guys, I found him pre-owned on Solaris and I got him for 70 bucks now.I thought if I won't buy him for this price, I'll never get him
>>7534922Well prices will only go up now unless more and more reissues flood the market. Sometimes you got to pull the trigger as soon as you can. D4C is probably the most absurd case so far.
>>7534922I bought my The World for 6500 yen last December on Mandarake. Missed the initial re-issue because no money. My Dio was standless for years.
>>7533179Yep. My collection seems to have literally doubled in value. I paid 3k yen for purple Kira and pink KQ 3 years ago and now they're worth almost 30k as a set. I fucking lucked out getting Oku at 5k yen.
Dude who bitched about getting stuck with D4C 2nd here; I managed to grab a WF one off Mandy the other day. Friendly reminder to try different keywords when searching because you can get wildly different results.Also, how's my display? I set up the Valentines forever ago with leaving enough space for D4C in mind.
>>7523540I WANT A GYRO AND D4C UNDER $300 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA FUCK KILL ME SHITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
>>7534444better off going there as most shops without websites carry SAS'es for cheap. got most of my passione there a few months ago for 4k yen average each.also most of the time I go there, I pick up at least two SAS
>>7523540You think i should cave in and buy a d4c for $350? >>7535253 this display REALLY made me fucking want og d4c colors,i aint rich but i got money to throw around but $350 Fuck
>>7535313As both of those guys, I'd definitely say $350 is a raw buttfucking for D4C, but it's your money.I picked mine up for $180 with shipping, and I honestly would've just waited for the 2nd colors if I had to pay twice that. The whole reason I waited on D4C in the first place was I didn't want to pay extra for the damaged parts I wasn't going to use.
>>7527293D4C second looks good with Valentine second, but I doubt it will look nice with Valentine 1st
>>7534653The price hikes are especially crazy considering I picked up WF Jolyne for $50 just 2 years ago. I can't imagine what will happen to the price if an anime is announced
The only figure I own is Soft and Wet, but my girlfriend laughed at it so I'm giving it to a friend instead
>>7535253>Also, how's my display?lol
>>7535253D4C looks really shoehorned in there, my dude.
>>7537769That's because she wants it Hard and Dry.
Is 160 dollars a good price for jolyne and stone free?
>>7538691yes lol. usually either go for 130+
>>7538761where are you getting prices for stone free?
>>7538761You can get Stonefree for 7000yen on Mandarake
>>7538691No that's fucking awful, but with the price hikes it might be about what they're going for at the moment. They'll probably do a rerelease for Jolyne and Stone Free at some point if you can wait a couple years to save $40
Not JoJo related but it is SAS related. How's the SAS Baoh? He looks sick but I can't find any good reviews of the guy online. Should I just bite the bullet and buy him?
>>7541431I'm just going off MFC but he looks like a solid all around SAS but the 1st color way is an exclusive so it's going to bite hard on the wallet if prices are high. The 2nd color way is a general release but I don't know what the aftermarket looks like for him.
Gay ass DIO phone pic
>>7541691Yeah Baoh Second is the one I've been eyeing. (I prefer the pink skin over the blue skin). He's around $70-$80 online and it seems like it may be worth it. Probably gonna buy it next paycheck.
>>7541721A closer crop
>>7541740He's on amiami for $60-ish.
>>7541721>>7541885It's cool regardless.
>>7540720WHAT. WHO MADE THAT CUSTOM.
How are the Banpresto statues compared to the Medicos figures? Are they more accurate or are the Medicos worth the price?
>>7544056Just go for the SAS unless the statues get poses or colors that the SAS can't do. I guess scale and joints will influence your final preference.>>7543931I believe some anon way back then in the General made that and a namefag called McBalderus opted to buy it off him.
The proscioutto SAS actually comes with a statue legend grateful dead what the fuckThe other WF exclusive is the iggy that comes with Joseph packaged with a statue legend the fool what the double fuck
>>7544141I guess I can't be surprised. That Iggy deal is shit though.
>>7544141A new medicos release? Holy shit imma make a wish
>>7544145It's a wf exclusive that has been teased for two years
>>7544142>MFW I thought I had been lucky and found a loose SL Pros and GD for about ¥2500>My face now i have no choice but to “double up” anyway
You know, as long as there was new product to buy I was willing to keep loyal to Medicos. I’ve bought every single WF exclusive aside from Red Dio and was willing to keep going.But now with these two releases, in particular Prosciutto at ¥12000.. I give up. I just don’t care anymore. Had it been Nero or Doppio I may have cared, or even just a figure at around ¥6000 or whatever. Just, I don’t know. I just can’t care anymore.
>>7544139>>7544141>instead of effect parts it's just TGD and a soundplateThey made his release even worse, holy shit.
>>7544276Don't worry, the 2nd color will have the crews aging effect parts
>>7540720Dio on the right looks like Idubbbz
>>7544141>>7544142What the fuck is wrong with his face? There is something really weird about it but I can’t exactly put my finger on it.Here is hoping the next Prosciutto realease has a yellow collar like he is supposed to have. And that Medicos doesn’t change his hair color to white or anything like that.
>>7544333So Prosciutto is going to be sold as a general release later? Hope it's the WF color scheme.
>>7544141What's the plate say?
Been tweaking some poses. Anyone have any Part 7 displays? Don't see enough of them.
>>7545279"If you think in your heart "I'm going to kill you!"Then at that time the action is already over!"I can't remember that line so my Japanese might be off.
>>7544142What is this? A Grateful Dead for ants?
>tfw I think “I want to pair the purple Grateful Dead with this figure, because the white sucks ass” and then see how you get the purple one.
>>7545643Oh, that's kind of a boring choice.
>>7546182That's a great choice tho, pretty iconic and sums up Prosciutto character
>>7545385This was my previous display for my Part 7 figures.
>>7546182Isn't that what he says right before (or after?) he shoots Mista?
>>7546192>>7546739Doesn't really lend itself well to posing unless you're only planning to recreate that moment though.
>>7546742That's true, but then he doesn't have much else of note they could've used. With that said it might've made more sense to just give him some effect parts instead.
> Got cheap af Rohan, Koichi and Jotaro(+Star) from 4th part 2 years ago> Decided not to collect 4th part further because of overpriced Okuyasu> Yesterday see him for 'mere' 8000 JPY, grab as fast as possible> Check prices for other 4th part SASs> Josuke for 7500, white KQ for 6500 and The Hand for 8000I did fuck up with waiting too long, right?
>>7546755>almost like they should've never made the figure in the first place
>>7546755An old head from when he pretends to be the old guy or a mangled arm from the train stuff would've been cool. Or some ice.
>>7545385Where can I acquire that flag?>>7546857I mean you did, but what can you do?Figures were getting re-released and their prices were staying down, with only the current anime stuff at the time spiking in price. Then they skipped over half of the part 4 crew, started making figs event exclusives and the part 5 anime hit and the line because scalper central. The re-releases are pointless to drive down prices now.Although Okuyasu was starting to rise well above 8k a couple years ago, so it's not that bad.
>>7547507>Where can I acquire that flag?I just got a 4x6 "Betsy Ross" flag off of Amazon, picked up some bendy wire and stuck it in the seams.>scalper centralIt's gotten really bad. Even in Japan, I hardly saw any figures in stores. Stores where they had dozens a couple of years ago at most would have like 4 or 5 and they were all around 8k JPY minimum. Then you go on YAJ and see dozens of listings of figures that still have the store sticker on them just lazily covered up in paint with a black box listed at 9-12k.
>nearly a year since Valentine standard release>still no standard release of D4CJesus Christ this line is so fucking slow
>>7547710Fun isn't it? Kenshiro will probably take longer
Once Kenshiro gets released thats the end for JoJo!!!
What the hell happened to the big line!
>>7549107We don't know!
Kenshiro has got me really wishing medicos would tackle a Kazuma Kiryu, just so theoretically I could have a display of Jotaro, Kiryu and Kenshiro for the single rawest anime man display imaginable.
>>7551426They were at one point.
>>7551439Damn. Maybe I'll keep wishing for a timeline where they release this for Kiwami 3.
>>7551426For that display you'll also need a renew version of Jotaro other wise it'll look like 2 men and a baby.
we need a Doppio figure already than make a whole la squadra its gonna drag for years if they do that.
>>7551720they really need to release doppio and the rest of la squadra while the anime is hot now, don't fuck up medicos
>>7545385Absolutely fucking sick..Loved SAS but never bothered till steel ball run shit..missed out on d4c but a man can dream. THis display is all i would ever want in my collection,nice fucking taste bro
>>7545385>Anyone have any Part 7 displays? Don't see enough of them.Waiting to build it once they come out. I'll add regular Valentine to tie in with white D4C and do their own thing. Though I suppose if Medicos doesn't want to do a SBR The World then I might just settle with my WF Diego.
>>7552050here you go anon.
>Bought a used Kars for a friend's going away presentHow good is the quality on used figures from mandarake? Does it tend to be good or is there risk of it being all fucked?
>>7541431He's cool. IMO Baoh and ajin IBM are the only good non-jojo SAS ever made. I have both the Baohs, and the only negative with the figure is that the head comes off a little too easy. They have the same long neck peg that the Steel Ball Run figures introduced. they probably switched to it to avoid snapping, but it kinda sucks ass.
oh gosh a 2nd desktop rohan, so sick of him!
>>7555808Mandarake is usually pretty safe. They’d tell you if something was seriously wrong with it.
>>7556190Thabks, that's reassuring
Posted in BST but figured I'd post here too Selling SAS Valentine for $90 shipped Also selling SAS Diego Brando, feel free to make an offer.
Any Phantom Blood displays? Was gonna pick up Jonathan and Dio soon, but need some inspiration for some duality shit i want to pose them in
>>7559115Got a few
>>7559139Actually just two.
>>7555598>The customs in the backCan we get a view of those?
>>7559145Why does Dio have two necks?
>>7544141>>7544142>debut release exclusive>10K yen>exclusive parts>most probably QC ends up like shit anywayFucking why? Medicos must be the only toy company that goes out of it's way to kill itself slowly & painfully.
>>7561854I would say there should be a general release with the WF extras cut out but D4C and Diego haven't been touched upon for that. Wait for the recolor and hope there isn't a bad contrast of colors.
Is 6600 Yen for Bruno and Sticky Fingers (each) a good deal?
>>7561886trish grinding on mista>o lord this aint legal
>>7561854soundplates have always been mostly used for wf exclusives, also I don't see why the QC would have to be shit.
>>7562219He probably means overall quality rather than QC issues. and he's right, since every exclusive recently other than Diego is shit quality. t. owns them all
>>7562600D4C isn't shit quality, what are you on about?
>>7562219Exactly! Ignore the whiners...
T-this show is for gays, right?
>>7562890No, the strong color contrasts and fashion inspired outfits make a strong first impression and then you get scenes like toenails getting ripped off all the way to a strip of skin and hands getting turned inside out. Also the poses.
>>7562890Ironically, the show only really gets gay during Part 5.
>>7562890You saying this is gay?
Only tangentially related but what the fuck happened with the Kinnikuman SAS
>>7563095Jojo sold better so they figured it would be more profitable to funnel all their energy into that instead of balancing their efforts between the two IP.
FOTN looks amazing! Anyone planning on getting Ken?
>>7563171Damn, he looks good!
>>7563171As long as he's not an exclusive, I'll definitely get him.
>>7563171Shit, I've been away from SAS for a while, is this shit really happening? If so, it's about time, we've been saying Medicos would've been a perfect fit for years now. That said, I wish we were getting him with Medicos 3 years ago quality instead of now quality, but it is what it is.
>>7563336Now quality is fine. It was just Gyro that was a bit of a dud. D4C, Funny, Johnny and Dio were all good. Gyro second despite being released much later was also a dud, not sure what was up with that though.
>>7563338>Every part 7 figure besides Gyro has ranged from pretty decent to fucking greatGoddamnit Medicos why, why’d you have to do my favorite boy dirty like that
>>7563095>>7563107Also the fact that they never produced a Kinnikuman for their Kinnikuman line and kept selling recolors of Warsman, Buffaloman and Robin Mask probably didn't help.
>>7563380Yeah I thought that was weird too. How the fuck you gonna disregard your main character?
>>7562621Forgot about D4C actually. But yeah he's in the same run as Diego so they're fine. But you never know with medicos
Honestly I think it would be cool for C-moon to have a figure
>>7566009Foo Fighter and stand, Heavy Whether's stand, C-moon and Made In Heaven and Part 6 Joataro.
>>7522359here's hoping for star plat then
I'm going to be away from home for an extended period of time, so I'm putting my collection in storage. I don't usually take pics because I don't have a good camera, but I figured I would set up some group shots and share them.
Once I set up my figs again I swear I'll try to get better at posing and get a good cam. All I'm missing from my collection are D4C and Diego. Still looking for the WF versions of both.
This is the only way I like having Gyro posed. I got him on mandarake and not only did I get 2 neutral heads, they were both bad in some way. Shame since he's one of the few side characters I was planning on buying.
Now he looks so much better with a bigger head, what do you guys think?
Pucci and Whitesnake are, my favorite figures, because of design
>>7566773Where’s the head from?
Can you buy figures right off of the Medicos website?I checked and they had some affordable prices, the only thing is the whole site is in Japanese
>>7567153I believe it's Japan only. Maybe a proxy can help out on that area if Mandarake doesn't have what you want at a decent price.
First time buyer here, just bought my first figure. How long does it generally take for your package to arrive from Japan? Does it just depend on who you buy from?
>>7567222Sort of but it also depends on what shipping option you picked. You got to break down more info since some choices can take a few weeks, a month, to a few days. Especially if your country has things like customs to deal with.
OP here, he finally arrived yesterday. Can't believe how awesome this figure is!
I'm interested in getting some nice figure bases/stages that can fit two or more figures comfortably but I'm not 100% sure what to go for.Geocraper bases are cheap and it looks like the holes would fit the plastic support pegs, but I haven't seen anyone talk about them for figures.The Di Stage looks great, but they're more expensive.>>7566221>>7566228These bases look perfect; I've seen them before, but I don't remember what they're called
>>7568070https://hlj.com/multi-plate-clear-4mm-hole-5mm-hole-ylsppc-k19cllink to the black one isn't working atm, but this is what you're looking for
>¥7.5k for Pink Giorno I don't think I'll find a price much cheaper than this, will I?
>>7568149It's a couple hundred yen cheaper new on AmiAmi.
>>7568149Amazon JP has it for 7000yen
Decided to change some of the poses in my Part 4,5, and 7 display.
Are Johnny & Gyro 2nd any good?I've been off the bandwagon for a long time (last purchase was Gappy with S&W), but have always wanted these 2.
>>7568725I have Johnny, and I really like him. From what I've seen Gyro 2 is mediocre at best. Sloppy paint, bad colorscheme, and comedically small eye details. I would just wait for a potential gyro 3rd.
>>7568725Johnny is great, but I don't have gyro so I can't really say.
>>7563171Hell fucking yes im gonna get him, but I may have to wait and see if i like the colors on him and maybe snag the inevitable WF Exclusive. Also Storm Collectibles is making a Ken as well, and I gotta see which version I'll like the most.
Guys, im going to Japan this summer, where can i find jojo merch and figures? And for what price?
>>7568765>>7568985Probably gonna grab just Johnny then, thanks anons.
>>7569136Probably any shop in Akihibara would have jojo stuff
>>7569136SAS figures aren't as prevalent as they used to be, you'll probably spot them in most shops in Akihabara, but there's usually only around 3 or 4, half of those probably being Hermes and Kiss, and they typically go for around ¥7000 and up. If you have the time, some of the smaller stores usually have better deals, like Jungle 1.5 by Mandarake Complex had a White Highway Star Rohan for ¥4000 a couple of weeks ago, but those deals are the exceptions, not the rule.
>>7562034It's not bad but you could do better
>>7569393>>7569235ThanksHermes and Kiss for ¥7000? Or Hermes for ¥7000 and Kiss ¥7000 seperatly ?Do you have information on Polnareff and Za Hando figures, if not where can i look at the prices?
In your opinion who has the worst sculpting design and articulation from each part of the arc between part 1 to 8?
>>7570469The part 3 lads all look like shit. Heads are too tiny and most of them have shit articulation
>>7570469jotaro is the ugliest figure by far.
>>7570469 I just recently got Awakening DIO... yeah it’s shit
>>7566773damn this really changes everything to the better, I just looked back at my DIO SAS and it really is different.
>>7570469Part 4 is probably Rohan 1st or Josuke, ignoring Koichi since they were limited with his height. Part 5 is easily Trish. Part 6 might be Jolyne between her exploding elbows and waistcloth limiting her leg movement, but I don't have them all to say for certain. Part 7 doesn't really have any bad sculpting or engineering, just bad paint apps. I'm inclined to say Valentine might be the worst of the group.
>>7570469Part 1 - Long neck DioPart 2 - None, all greatPart 3 - All, bad sculpting, bad articulation bad scalePart 4 - Josuke and 1st Rohan, bad scale tooPart 5 - Trish, bad articulationPart 6 - Anna Sui, a bit shortPart 7 - Gyro bad paint, Valentine smaller than the restPart 8 - Beside the head sculpting everything else is fine
>>7570927imo jotaro is one of the better from part 3. polnareff is probably ugliest. kakyoin has trash articulation but looks pretty decent, but small compared to others (all of pt.3 has this problem though)>>75704691- Dio2- they're all really good so it's tough to say - but Kars' hair can be finicky and some loincloths are not as soft a plastic and are tought to work around.3- pol4- koichi mostly because hes so tiny hes annoying to pose5- trish or abbachio. both are tough to pose successfully6-pucci's skirt makes it tough to get anything too dynamic but hes otherwise beautiful7-gyro is kinda ugg8-I actually really like the gappy fig
>>7522359what colors are being re-released for the part 3 figs?
>>7571698 Just the 1st colors, normal colors
>>7571723which are? I don't into jojo figuresto be more specific, i'm wondering of the star platnimum would be the blue one
>>7571778It would be the green one
Hey anons, I finally got my first SAS figures, specifically- Kira (white) and Killer Queen (white)- Diavolo and King Crimson (red/green)- Green JosephI know I paid a hefty amount for all them but goddamn do they feel worth it. Also happy that white Kira is plentiful since I prefer his final Kosaku look anyway. Beyond those, I already have all of Part 2 re-issues PO'd and I honestly can't wait to have all three Pillar Men in my hands.
>>7572005Should have got into the line a year ago when King Crimson and Diavolo were going for like $30 and $40 and White KQ and Kira were only around $40-50.
>>7572046I got KQ and Kira for retail since they were still available on AmiAmi. I did have to pay a heftier amount for Diavolo and KC but I guess that's the price I pay for being a latecomer. Still I don't regret it at all and I absolutely love the figues.
I am getting my first figure soon and it Jonathan joestar what should I expect I am so hyped
>>7572937Which jonathan?Either way, he's a gooc chonk. Got some nice weight to him, and he's a pleasure to pose.
>>7572937He's good but a warning, if you're going to display him with the backpack you need the extended peg that goes all the way through the bag into the peghole on Johnathan. I've had that snap pretty easily so treat that piece with some extra care.
>>7572968to be fair I snapped it too and the regular stand arm can still hold him pretty well
Anyone have a pic of the jojo ending with all the p5 stands?
>>7573320I’m really hoping Medicos or someone else makes a statue of that, I’d buy it in a fucking heartbeat.
>>7572941I am getting the blue one and where did you get the hamon/hermit purple?
>>7573350Got the effect off the walgreens exclusive dr doom/infamous iron man. This effect comes in different colorways on different marvel legends figures (magik: blue, storm: yellow, ragnarok thor: light blue, living laser: white/pinkish)Being Marvel Legends figures, they'll be on the cheap side, at least compared to SAS collecting
>>7573365 I might try and make my own effect
>>7573392Go for it! Post pics of results
>>7573365Man, this is a great fucking idea. I've got Magik (who has similar effects) and never thought about using that shit for Jojo effects.
Would I be better off ordering a figure from Mandarake or AmiAmi?
>>7573558It depends on the availability. I ordered from both sites plenty for SAS but Mandarake usually wins out with a larger collection of preowned figures.
>>7573557Tip: magik's long sword effect fits on joseph's hammer and jonathan's sword
>>7573365Is that supposed to be Doom's face? I thought he was supposed to be horribly scarred under the mask.
>>7530515I can only ever find that book in Japanese print
>>7574071I'm sure it's only going to be in Japanese so your best bet is either learning the language or taking a shot with Google Translate.
>>7573508Will do after I get the package it might be in a later thread tho
>>7522172Can someone post the Mandarake search criteria that's normally in SAS JoJo generals? Thanks!
>>7575543There's nothing in the archives sites to reference?
>>7575543超像可動 there you go, although you could have just literally selected any SAS on mandarake or any website by searching in english and copypasting
>tfw the tip of the stand broke off inside one of my figure's back holesHas anyone ever had this happen to them before?How the hell can I get the piece out?
>>7575860Hot needle and pliers
>>7563171Hell yeah!! Feel like i've been waiting a life time for a decent 1/12 kenshiro!It will finally give me a reason to open my OG and Repaint MISB Raoh & Kokuou-gos that's i've had in storage for the past 10 years!Not to derail the Jojo thread, but also looks like it's getting a re-release this year, so perfect timing for those who missed it!
>>7563171Fuck yes. Hopefully Raoh comes out soon seeing it's bullshit he wasn't rereleased in the Revoltech anniversary line.
>>7576306So how long until the painted reveal?
>>7576429If we're super lucky, painted by Summer WonFes 28th July and release by Wìnter WonFes Feb 2020! Don't expect anything sooner.Tetsuo Hara is working as a consultant so they need his signoff and he's a busy man.
>>7576455Cool so 2077 is a realistic date and then 2080 for the preorders to begin. Classic Medicos timing
>>7574071As far as I know it’s only in Japanese but I’ve been learning Japanese for the past 3 years so I can read most of it
Woo, another lottery exclusive, 100 piece limited!
Another new image of prosciutto.
>>7577813>100Meh, they are upping the quantity. Probably because they discovered something better than selling 50 pieces for 45k a pop.. selling 100 for 45k a pop instead.
>>7577813This is probably one of the best swarowskis
My attic collection from 4 years ago before I got silver chariot, kakyion, heirophant green, black dio, green joseph, pink josuke, pink koichi, pink echoes, killer queen 2nd, jonothan, dio, baoh 1st.I've managed to stay strong and not buy a single part5 onward figure for so long, but damn are these re-releases tempting me!!
>>7578003>Kinnikumen SASThat's actually rare to see
>>7577813Wew bedazzled SAS for 1000 bucks.
>>7578021Yeah, I picked up the 4 versions of Buffaloman before the SHF was announced.I have all the SHF Kinnikumans now, but I still really like the paint app on these.
>finally completed my p3 crew after ignoring them for years because of scale autism>pass up on cheap black and green Jotaros because I wanted each crusader to have a different color, eventually get a bluetaro for dirt cheap>just missing star platinum now>have to choose between rape prices or green reissue which will destroy my color compositionI've been a fucking fool, I shouldn't have spent the last few years buying random WF exclusives and recolors.
>>7522172redpill me on these
>>7578385Best series has a generally breddy gud line of figures, but the company that makes them is retarded. For every awesome release nowadays, you get two bad decisions that send the line closer to the grave. Aftermarket’s a bitch, but usually worth it if you love Jojo.
>>7578385Unironically great figures, except for part 3 and some part 4 characters they're all superb sculpts and paintjobs and most of them used to be 2-3k yen each. Sadly, most of them have doubled in price, some have spiked much higher. The aftermarket is a warzone and the company seems to be on life support, causing them to release very pricey reissues and one new figure every billion years.I think this sums it up.
Does Medicos usually sell figures at Wonderfest besides the swarovski figures and event exclusive figures? Gonna be in Japan this July so I might go if I have time and it would be cool to pick up some figures without shipping costs and aftermarket rape prices
>>7578849No, only the event exclusives.Even if they did, Medicos sell their regular figures for the equivalent of aftermarket prices these days anyway.
>>7578849They only sell exclusives at Wonderfest.
>>7578960>>7579035Darn. Well then crossing my fingers there are good exclusives this summer
>>7579211It's gonna be prosciutto and a repackaged iggy with an old the fool statue. So not really what many would consider good, unless you are a prosciutto fan.
>>7579211>prosciuttoProsciutto's pre order with The Great sold out really quick at most site, but you should still try your luck at Wonderfest.
Didn't think too much of him before but damn he's kind of growing on me.
>>7579357I really hope we'll get the rest of La Squadra members especially Risotto Nero and Melone with Babyface.
>>7577813>swarowskiswarowski is overrated
>>7579357Still a little mad we’re getting this guy before Yashuo and Paisley, but I gotta admit he looks slick.
>>7579652I'm mad we're getting him before a Doppio, Foo Fighters, Hot Pants, and Tusk Act 4.
>>7578003>I've managed to stay strong and not buy a single part5 onward figure for so long, but damn are these re-releases tempting me!!You dun goofed my dude. You could have picked up most of the Part 5 crew for around ¥3000 up to a year ago. The rereleases are double what they were going for before the Part 5 anime. There's also no rerelease confirmed for Diavolo or King Crimson, so KC has gone from ¥3,000 to ¥11,000. Pretty much every SAS has at least doubled in price from what it was 2-3 yeara ago.
>>7579757I'm mad we're getting him before reworking the Part 3 SAS's
>>7579765shit, most of them were 2 or 2.5k yen. Chariot, Trish and Spice girl went for 1.5. Good times.
>>7579765I think I spent enough getting the 40 SAS figures I did at the time. I just couldn't justify continuing, with all the recolors and exclusives it became gratuitous.Not a fan of part 5 onwards anyway. It all started to become a bit too fruity if you know what I mean. I think part 3 will forever remain my favourite part of the series.Hoping we get more updated sculpts after Jotaro!!
>>7579767Amazing! I'm in!
>>7579890> Trish and Spice girl> Only 1.5Why am I not surprised? They are only selling now because of the anime.
I bought a used The World from Mandarake for 80, and an Awakened DIO for 83 on eBay. Did I fuck up or is this a decent deal?
>>7579980The World is fine. You fucked up on awakened DIO because you can get him for around $35-45.
>>7579980Mandarake prices are pretty much the benchmark imho. Sounds good. Which version of Za Wurdo?
>>7579985Damn, everywhere I looked he was either out of stock or more expensive. I'll have to be more careful from now.
>>7579985Depends, which colour awakened, I have original and Black. Black was a bit more, but I needed those yellow fists :)
>>7579993Seems good for now. Watch out though, as there may be a re-release announced for 60 soon. You did good though.
>>7580005Cool, new to Jojo figures.
>>7579980You did fine on the world, but you absolutely messed up on Awakened dio, I got him last month with a slightly damaged box for 1200jpy, still there is a chance he just skyrocketed in the last month, it's been happening a lot lately.
>>7579992awakened Dio doesn't come with the yellow punching effects tho, that's regular black DIO
>>7580037Oh yeah, forgot. I don't have green Jotaro or Black Dio displayed. I literally bought them for the effects and put the boxes in storage! lol
Why the fuck have we not gotten best boy yet?
>>7579928>It all started to become a bit too fruityYou in the wrong series my dude
Is 93 dollars a good price for Part 3 Star Platinum, first print?
>>7580828Guess I'll hold off then
>>7579767this looks fucking amazing actually.
>>7580873It's a really nice effort by Medicos but my scale autism refused to order him at release. At this point I would sell my Part 3 SAS if they actually made 2.0's of them.
>>7580904Same, chanting 2.0 silently...
Just checked mandy for Diavolo and he’s sold out and listed at 10k, is this what he is going for nowadays? Did I fuck up on not getting him pre anime? He’s literally the only Part 5 figure left for me.
>>7582434I got Diavolo last year at Mandy for 4500 yen, it was right before the anime started, just wait till the hype is dead. Better start stocking on the part 6 figures while the price is still affordable.
>>7582441Yeah, I picked up Bruno 1st and Silver Chariot Part 5 late last year, not sure exactly when, on AmiAmi new, and Diavolo was available as well.I never thought his price would spike like this. Figures like Okuyasu and Kira 2nd went up so much because they were always sort of rare and highly sought out. Not really the case with Diavolo.
Despite how awful the scale and articulation is, part 3 looks pretty good on its own, what do you guys think?
>>7582451Well they haven't announced a rerelease for Diavolo or King Crimson either, so they might not drop much, if at all. Judging from Narancia and Mista, even with a rerelease you'll probably still be spending around ¥6500-¥7000. You should have paid mpre attention to Josuke and Part 4 Jotaro's prices. They got rereleases after Part 4 aired at around ¥3800 and ¥4500 and they still shot up. Part 4 Jotaro os currently sitting around ¥10,000 to ¥12,000.
>>7583435Yeah, my scale autism prevented me from buying any of the crusaders since I had a mixed display, but now that I have a bigger cabinet where every part has his own separated display I've really come to like them.
Finally got Fugo and Narancia, so close to finishing Part V.
WF Summer 2019, no new figures and nothing on SAS BIG DIO.
>>7584521>WF Summer 2019lol no
>>7584521That's wf in shanghai not japan
>>7584521How new must you be?
>>7584521Wonderfest is late July, buddy
Haha, my bad
>>7584521Even the censorship is lazy
>>7583435is the articulation for polnareff that bad?i know some people say he is ugly but how is the articulation?same goes for Jotaro
>>7585461I can only vouch for Jotaro but he's okay. It's the neck area that limits things since your range of movement is on the ball peg.
>>7585519It looks like SAS Big. If it is, you are probably rich and definitely lucky.I want to start SAS Big since they have released only two so far, with a draft project on DIO but they are over +25k yens each. I hate Medicom RAH.
>>7586095Its just the regular SAS Jotaro, not big. Look at that base.>Over 25k a pieceGiven the shitty release length from prototype to preorder you can save up before the payment email even arrives for Dio. I didn't jump for it until they actually commit to more characters. I know they would do The World but god knows how long until he's out.
>>7586095Isn't SAS Big some weird-ass scale like 10" or something? If they're full 12" I might be more willing to bite, since I can make them mingle with my 1/6 figures.
>>7586172Yes, the photo was confusing but >>7586100clarified. SAS BIG are 6", and I highly recommend it due to reviews. Problem is, they are expensive. But Medicos did it well. My biggest issue with them is the company releasing and producing. Medicos is well known for its hiatus, shitty scales (I'm also have an OCD with scales and I hate the 1/12 line for it).I might get DIO and save some money for Jotaro and Star Platinum. Only WF in late July will reveal Medicos intentions with this line. I hope they also re-release Jotaro + SP in the 18k yen price listing.
https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1112358961&ref=list&keyword=%E8%B6%85%E5%83%8F%E5%8F%AF%E5%8B%95BIG&lang=enGuys, I would get it if I had the chance. But I'm without any shekels right now with three pre-orders coming.
>>7586312Why not wait for the blue or purple one?
>>7586321Because SAS Big in two years (speculation) released only two figures.
