>>7552467Why tf are we still grouping aquashooters/DTA with Gashapon?
>>7552570Aquashooters ARE gashapon, regardless of THAT GUY's butt insertion fetishes. Can't say the same for DTA
>>7552570>>7552576DTA are blind boxed every now and then, they count.
quit arguing like fagets and post gacha
I really wish I had a small community to sell or split orders. I want to get some of these but I don't want to be stuck with doubles.

New characters They look really cute
>>7552467that eagle looks fucking rad, OP, where do I sign up
>>7557323>>7557324>>7557326>>7557327>>7557331>series known for gun posing>don't give them hand or feet swivelsNo thank you
First wave of Robot Concerto out on toysanta. Get yours while they're available.
>>7557523Despite its drawbacks, DTA still looks healthier than FA:Gs. I'm surprised DTA has gone this long and there's still fresh ideas with every new release.
Man I have so many DTA already and they keep finding ways to drill holes through my wallet>>7557309So I'm guessing it sold well enough to warrant recolors? w/e, not touching it unless they make a regular release
>>7559007It's this from the artbook?>not touching it unless they make a regular releaseI hope for this tooThe pic posted in previous threads of this mech make want it, but IIRC it was only available in a kickstarter campaign
>>7557104That's this. This is a small community. If you buy a case post your extras here and people may buy them.
>>7557621Does anyone know how to get the red weapon set?https://gashapon.jp/robot_concerto/special/
>>7557621>>7559174They are available in amiami for anyone who want it>https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=GOODS-00279123Also, here is the futaba thread about them>http://nov.2chan.net/y/res/3832814.htm
Did toysanta remove shipping options? Order page just has "International delivery" which is expensive even for single items. Yet the old options (SAL, EMS) are still listed in the product pages. What gives?
>>7561245It's still there, they just changed the formatting a little. It's not new either, it happened like at least a month ago, probably more. On the summary screen, right before you click "place order," you will see some text that says "shipping option" and below that, a small edit button that lets you choose all the options. It's kinda small and confusing and easy to miss now, so while I was getting used to this I accidentally placed an expensive EMS order.The good thing though, is that it seems to remember what you last chose. It defaults to my same shipping choice every time I order now.
This is a horrible way to do scarves
>>7561269>wanting cloth accessoriesYuck!
>>7561271Said nothing bout cloth, dummyThey should have just used balljoints instead of their swivels
These things are cute.Hobbysearch has them for preorder but only on random pieces, it's cheaper than individual pieces in toysanta though.Decisions, decisions.
What series would you like to get made in the DTA line?My pipedream would be Metal Gear DTA figures
>>7561281I just want the rice cooker and coffee maker, random might be too much of a bet, but then again that's the whole point of gashapon.
>>7561282>konamiPlay arts kai for you!
>>7561285>Pachinco arcade for you!FTFY
>>7561289Can you repeat that in english?
>>7559185are the boxes randomly assorted or am I guaranteed to get at least one of each set?
>>7557090>>7559187>>7559188What are these called?
>>7561257Thanks anon, it worked when I tried it in my usual pc
>>7561269>>7561272Fate DTAs get stupider with every new release, but I'd still murder wallet if they ever did Tomoe Gozen or Kato Danzo.

>>7559185how do I get this?
>>7564076looks like each girl will have a different bust size from wave 2 onwards
>>7564139>>>7564076>ミニクレ? ufo catcher?
>>7564139>>7564540Yeah, the article says that toy production costs are rising and to keep the series going they’re gonna reuse the molds of the gacha ones for those “mini crane” machines (wasn’t even aware those were a thing).
>>7564540>>7564625so we gaijins are fucked?
>>7565507Bandai is known to export crane prizes boxed without being crane prizes, but you'll have to look for Chinese sellers for these.
>>7564076I really wish they switched up the outfits a bit. At this point you're just paying for new heads.
>>7568881>>7568837In this case, also torsos and arms. there is a couple of new accessories too
>>7568881tell that to mega contrux fans
>>7561282I just want a pack of extra faces to switch up the expressions on my lolis.
>>7568884The torsos and arms barely look any different and the accessories are boring compared to what you could get in a re-ment set. Pic related, check out that hat and those sunglasses.
>>7568892>The torsos and arms barely look any differentBut they are, I get your point, but at least they are changing the molds even if is a little bitOn a related note, I saw someone asking about the Imaginext vehicles in this thread >>7566900Someone here have check into this?
>>7568903Can you not find any at thrift stores?
>>7568904I haven't checked, but never hurt to ask if someone have already done it
Dangomushi 3 on hobbysearchhttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10616647
>>7570446Is the price for these Dangomushi correct? If is a set of 4, the price is too cheap, unless that price is for only one of them, but that would be weird as these stores usually sell them in sets not individually>>7568837Aqua shooters 3 set in HShttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10616887
>>7570491Bruh it says right in your screencap, you get one selected at random.
>>7570496Damn, You're rightI didn't read that partI guess this is the first time they seel these individually/random, right?
I love me some anime schoolgirls but I don't feel like giving another buck to figma anymore, so I'm considering on just switching into Aqua Shooters and learn how to sculpt hair.What should I take into account when changing scales?
>>7571612Sylvanian Families/Calico Critters, all the furniture you need for this scale.
>>7559187>>7559188>>7559185Wonder if these are compatible and similar in height to Anima Gear. >>7552467 They are so similar in aesthetics and play patterns.https://youtu.be/3-kZG9r4X5k
>>7572554anima gear seem to reuse pieces from these. not exactly compatible
>>7572244Beautiful, love the bat guy from Beast Saga and the white dangomushi. What's the clear blue guy from?
>>7573947Its supposed to be an isopod from HoneHoneSaurus by Kabaya. But there's so many of them i don't know which wave it's from
>>7572585Nah man, they're different
>>7574203Could be the same size balljoint
>>7574203It's pretty amazing that like 10 years ago I was still marveling at the inner frame tech on MGs and now everything from gacha (Anima Gear) to candy toys (G-Frame) to SDs (Cross Silhouette) to RGs has them. We've really come a long way. Hell, a lot of modern HGs even have partial inner frames.
>>7573947Beast Saga died too soon... I've gotten alot of them except the turtle wave.
>>7574014>>7573947A closer pic
>smaller, same price but it comes with a keyring attachmentWhat are they playing at?
>>7568837>10pcs. Is that 6 girls?
>>7574735I guess so, same as it was in wave 01
New gasha thread on futaba >http://nov.2chan.net/y/res/3834782.htm
>>7574203When are anima gear releasing anyway?
>>7575878>>7575879>>7575882really wish they gave em wrist swivels already
>>7574732>Hook piece detaches>It's connected to an already unreliable ballchainYyyyeah nah. Not looking to lose my dangomushi on the street somewhere on the first day.
>>7575277Whoa, the drone is unexpectedly big. This kind of changes my interest level.
First ever DTA, they're neat but dont like the lack of wrist articulation, even a normal peg would have been nice
>>7576031does any of them suffer from popping shoulders?the fate dta jeanne had that problem
>>7576033LLENN mainly cuz her P90 has suck a long and bulky stock but the extra joints that come with them might fix this, that's what these are for right?
>>7576037>suck a long and bulky stockI don't have to take orders from you.
>>7576033Based on personal experience, most DTAs are fine, Jeanne's just weirdly shitty. It's even weirder since her wavemates are fine.
I wish dta had ankle joints, I really want them but can't bring myself to without that.
>>7576209Which is why Aqua Shooters are superior.
>>7575885Don't have confirmation but I've seen August thrown around
https://youtu.be/hNdTXMb6fdUBandai made a PV for aqua shooters, nothing new though.
Tortoise gashapon announced by the guys who brought you Dangomushi.For release this year but no exact date yet.
>>7577640Holy fuuuuuck. I need every single one, I love testudines. I wonder if it'll have some clever reveal mechanism like dangomushi, or just need to be transformed like...well, a Transformer.
>>7579138I just wish they had ankle joints... it's so offputting knowing they can't stand on their own in anything but a neutral pose without a stand.
I’ve finally found the accessory gacha for my gacha skellies
>>7579303Holy shit, that one with the shattered jaw and face. That's such a great sculpt.
>>7561282I fucking hate this.
is there a database for gashapon? related but not entirely is there a website for american capsule machines? in the early to mid 90s in a pizza place there were little 25 cent robots that came in standard vending machine capsules. they all looked kind of generic and i think they were only molded in like one to two colors of plastic. they were really cool and idk where to start looking for them. i guess they would be considered a vintage vending machine toy by now. one of them had some sort of tank legs and another one had bidpedal legs. i think the set had at least 6 but maybe close to 10 or 12 variants.
>>7580959>is there a database for gashapon? Not that I know of. It'd be nice to have one, but to be honest, it seems almost impossible. There are thousands of series out there, and tons of obscure/little known ones that have faded away into the past and may have zero documentation online.Your description sounds like many cheapo vending machine toys sold in the 80s and 90s. Often they would be cheap bootlegs of Gundams or other anime characters. And no, there is no database for these either, and probably no company who was proud enough to keep track of such bootleg-ass shit. You're probably out of luck finding anything on these.
>>7581409A water sword? D:
>>7581413Swords are cool fag.
>>7582474I can get down with this since their feet are shit anyway. As long as the dont do some of the crap that the Fate ones did.
Anyone own Collechara and Aqua Shooters? I ask if the neck joint is the same diameter..
>>7583006I know for a fact that aqua shooters have 3mm balljoint pegs for the head. For reference, that's close to mega bloks balljoint size.
>>7557323Fuck this is expensive but I loved the Gungale set.>>7564076Having a mortgage sucks but this is still a must buy, can you anons update me on which site has the best deals for these two sets?
>>7586415WAIT, MODULAR BEETLES!?!? COUNT ME IN!
>>7587913>Fold up into little beetle ballsi NEEEEEED it
>>7587913>40 dollars for 3>not out until novemberdamn
>>7589998Damn dude, I was thinking for that price they gotta be made of metal or some shit. Nope, just PVC and ABS. Why the fuck are these things so expensive? I mean, they're big, but not much bigger than Dangomushi, and vac-metalized coatings aren't anything new or particularly pricey.
>>7590012if they were metal i'd have preordered them right fuckin now, but now I'll wait to pick one up off rakuten or something
>its shiny so it must be metal
>>7590421more like>it's 15 dollars a piece for a folding beetle maybe it's metal
>>7587913>SighLooks like I’m posting these again because Somebody didn’t direct me over to the right general >>7592341http://figsoku.net/blog-entry-157752.html(Apologies to Revo-general)
>>7592827absolutely no way that can fit in a capsule
Found gachas of japanese traditional statues last time i went to Japan (2-3 years ago) and unironically fell in love with them. Rolled only once though and I'm still regretting it>>7586415Cool! they remind me of the good ol mushiking. Beatles were the shit in japan in the early 2000s
I still have my still intact set of these bad boys.
Lock n' load bay-bee
>>7594234I have one of those
I fucking love this Aqua shooter do you think it's possible to glue the V-fin to my Aqua shooter? I have plastic model cement glue. If possible I might do a full fledged Mecha musume with the chest too.
>>7600868If you're already committed to a permanent option like superglue, I might go all the way and carve a shallow inlay into the hair for the V-fin, so it has somewhere to really rest in there and not easily dislodge. Then superglue it in place.
