Samus' articulation in reviews seems really great even if the people doing the videos barely move the figure and don't even try any poses. They barely show that the articulation works and move it a bit to and fro. Then at the end of the video they show you the figure in the same poses as the promo pics 'cause I imagine that's the most creative they can get.The Vietnamese slave working in QC at GSC probably puts more joy and creativity in testing the articulation of the figure before sending it off on the conveyor belt than these people who are professionally reviewing toys for a living. There is a deep injustice in the world; why do these creatures exist? Where do they come from? Who put them there? And this kind of person exists in virtually every field where observing a video about the item might be useful. Do they mass produce them? Why are they all like that?
>>10724541Man I love the OP pic. Perfect figure, catto, accessory, everything
>>10724633dont forget the part of the video where they bring the figure close to the camera to show its 'details' whilst its entirely out of focus
>>10724644there weren't many pics to choose from but the few i found are pretty nice
>>10724644that's not Sukeban Makoto
Does goodsmile always take this long? I had always gone with amiami before for my Japanese figures. I get that I'm being a total weiner, but it feels like they're dragging their feet and the longer it takes the more it feels like they'll pull some "oops, we promised more product than we could order and we are cancelling your purchase that you have no way of getting at a fair price thirteen months later, p.s. fuck you" nonsense.
>>10724911goodsmile usa? they usually get their stuff a couple of months after japan does, i guess they send them via ship
>>10724911Like >>10724916 said, if you ordered from GoodsmileUS, there's always going to be a bit of a delay from the Japan release while they allocate the stock meant for US and ship it over. They usually send over an email when it leaves the country and then another when it ships from the US warehouse.
aww hell nawww hippo got a bitch...
>>10724650>Ohh the box feels really premium (keeps talking about the box for 15 minutes)>So... this is the figure... *sets it down*>What an amazing figure, they really outdid themselves *doesn't touch the figure for the remainder of the video*In-box collectors are truly subhuman. I know it's their fault that these people exist
there's allegedly a gsc event today but the fucking website link doesn't work.
>>10725522oh thats because its not open for another 9 hours i'm a retard
>>10725522https://www.goodsmile.info/en/Their website is having problems in the last couple days. Look they don't even have the main page updated.
>>10725250Mine got upgraded bruh.
>>10725587bruh... my man is... hard carrying....
>>10725522I think everything at the event already got out. There was like 50 Nendo announcements earlier, I doubt they'll announce or show off much more on top of thoseMaybe some figma updates but I dunno, feels a little unlikely, although I hope I'm wrong
Why do you guys think figma is holding off on releasing more kny hashira figmas? Buzzmod has already released Tengen and now Muichiro and Mitsuri, meanwhile figma still hasn’t announced a Tengen figma even though his season has been over and the newest season with Muichiro and Mitsuri is already over as well. Did they just give up? I kinda doubt the most popular anime in Japan will stop getting figmas though, especially of the hashira characters. The last figmas were Giyu and Shinobu who were announced years ago.
>>10725755There have been plenty of super popular series over the years and they rarely completed any group of characters. I don't think Kimetsu is going to be an exception to that, no matter how well liked it is.
>>10725802I was thinking it was because buzzmod was bringing the heat because their line of kny figures could be well compared. Two threads ago, I saw someone talking about how figma would make hakama pants without it looking bad, there’s another figma called Ibaraki Doji who also has hakama pants and it always looks bad and too bulky. Buzzmod used fabric for Mui’s pants which was genius and probably the only way to make hakama pants not look awkward, but the faces and overall figure kinda bother me. Guess I’m more used to how figmas look and would rather wait for gsc to announce a Muichiro figma, it would fit more with my figma collection too since I have zero buzzmods. But if they don’t ever announce more hashira figmas like you said then I’m gonna have to bite the bullet and get the buzzmod.I heard that SH figuarts is starting their own kny line but it doesn’t look anything special
>>10725823>I heard that SH figuarts is starting their own kny lineGreat, maybe Kaiyodo, Medicos and Mafex will make KNY figures, too!This honestly isn't a series that should be that over-saturated.
>>10725681there was a nendo event thing but there's also specifically wonhobbyg, which has its own event page that's not open until 10am japan time
>>10725823>buzzmod was bringing the heatlmao
>>10725823>it doesn’t look anything specialthe Tanjiro looks pretty good actuallyI am curious to see if GSC will go soft goods on Jigoruraku Sagiri.They have a weird way of going about it. Like I would have expected soft goods on the haoris just like Buzzmod did, but they did preferred to stick to plastic
>>10725823>I saw someone talking about how figma would make hakama pants without it looking bad, there’s another figma called Ibaraki Doji who also has hakama pants and it always looks bad and too bulky. Buzzmod used fabric for Mui’s pants which was genius and probably the only way to make hakama pants not look awkwardYeah that was me and another anon discussing it, I think. I brought up an older figma that had hakama pants - not that Doji guy - and I don't see how that's any better than the Bleach knees on SHF. But when I mentioned soft goods someone also had a spergout about wrinkles and "soft goods at this scale look like shit". They certainly do look better than Bleach knees.I ended up getting the SHF Sagiri 'cause her faces are nice but I almost hope the figma will have a plastic hakama 'cause soft goods would probably get me to buy it. Yet I doubt it will happen. They're weirdly stubborn about not using softgoods like Buzzmod does
>>10726006> hope the figma will have a plastic hakama 'cause soft goods would probably get me to buy itDon’t worry, I can’t see figma doing fabric hakamas. I’d love to be proven wrong since the buzzmod Muichiro pants were the perfect choice but figma just uses fabric for capes and entire dresses as far as I know
>>10726021I can definitely see the wrinkle issue that anon pointed out here. They still look way better than the alternative, though.
>>10726021while I don't think the pants look bad, the contrast between the fabric pants and the plastic sleeves does look bad.
>>10726026>the contrast between the fabric pants and the plastic sleeves does look badyeah that's also true in his caseI ordered Mitsuri and she doesn't have this problem 'cause the plastic parts don't represent baggy clothes
>>10726031she's so fucking cute I can't wait to have her
>>10726031much less noticable here. I wonder how stable the dye in the fabric is over time, particularly in regards to UV damage.
>>10726031God I fucking hate their Yoko. It's almost perfect.
>>10726034This is SHF Sagiri. Terrible knees but again, unless the figma goes soft goods they're bound to look not much different than that. And honestly figma has been a bit of a letdown with the faces. They can nail cute moe characters but they sort of shit the bed with more mature looking styles, mainly Power's face sculpt is atrocious.I wonder if they're not making Yuzuriha at all or she's simply not annouced yet.>>10726036>I wonder how stable the dye in the fabric is over time, particularly in regards to UV damage.My main concern is whether the fabric will stain the skin tone of the legs. This would be my first Buzzmod so I don't know if they have a bad record regarding that
>>10726021>uses fabric for capesbut only sometimes. the only figma I have with fabric elements are Nobara (Leagues above her SHF in terms of quality btw), Lancer Artoria and a few of the styles ones. For some reason despite her cape being expressive Ruby is a plastic cape character
>>10726040I'm really glad they didn't go soft goods on the socks here. My idea with Yoko is that they were considering sexy poses where she's taking them off since she's more of a coomerbait character than an action characterHonestly Mitsuri has a bunch of perfect choices. I approve of the way they did her sword with a wire instead of a few pre-set poses. I like the plastic socks, plastic shirt, fabric haori and fabric skirt. I think they did everything right with her. My only gripe is the swappable legs for a full knee bend, but the standard legs have a very good knee bend on their own so I won't complain too much.
>>10726046Was Meguca Sayaka the only time they added both a plastic and fabric cape?
>>10726046>Leagues above her SHFWithout a doubt but the faces on SHF Nobara are much more expressive
>>10726050>Meguca SayakaMeguca Seyiku, you mean.
Has anyone used GoodSmile Europe yet? Are they legit? How was your experience with them compared to the other branches or stores? And did you have to pay customs or do they ship from within EU?
>>10726040Yeah, those christmas socks are a deal breaker for me.
>>10726068Used, but no results yet.It's a June 2024 release.
>>10726086To add, they ship from Luxembourg and some other EU countries according to the FAQ, so no import shit.The only dubious thing so far is them using Shopify.
>>10726068I wanted to use them to order DX Arcueid so I can avoid extra taxes, but the site is so crappy that I just decided against it. I hope they improve the store so it can at least have a way to see your orders instead of having to search your mail.
>>10726089Don't they have BBTS tier markup though?
>>10726086wait what. You don't have to pay customs on goodsmile europe orders?
>>10726101You pay VAT, but without extra bullshit for customs clearance.
>>10726086>>10726089Ok cool, no import customs is a point in their favour >>10726098Yeah the website looks pretty bad, they should get around to making it nicer
>>10726099that depends it does look to be slightly more expensive than ordering from japan (by 9 bucks) BUT if you save customs it will be cheaper. Recent order of a nendoroid 53.11 Euro with shipping included + 23,xx customs fee to mafia postman.>>10726106isn't vat included in the price already?
>>10726101Prices on site are without VAT, it'll be added once you have to pay.For my country it's 21%.>>10726099Depends I think. The (non-figma) stuff I ordered should be cheaper just because it's not being shipped through EMS now.
>>10726112only reason I provide nendo as an example is because it's the only thing I ever ordered from the official GSC store so far so the actual price from amiami might be slightly cheaper but it's still aids pricewise to ship to europe
>>10726116so the nendo would be around 63 bucks + shipping.... man what shit hobby we have
>>10726112I fucking hate customs charges 'cause I don't even know what the fuck they're charging. It seems completely random>order €100 item>€12 fees>order €48 item>€17 feesDoesn't matter if the store undercharges, it's completely random. I have a couple bigger orders coming and I'm so fucking stressed. Whatever number I may have come up with doing the math is completely useless. It could be half of that or twice that much depending entirely on whatever random retardation
>>10726121Here they generally ignore including shipping costs when doing SAL or Airmail, but with EMS they'll include it in the value, which is why I hate GSC keeps using it on these tiny single-figma shipments. Sure they say flat rate, but that's not on the packaging slip..
>>10726121When I started the hobby I was ordering from ebay a lot and never got chardged with customs until like one day I got a letter from fedex to pay 70 bucks customs. That was only one order too so I was really shocked. So I found out how it really works and why I was never charged before. For imports normally they have to mark the parcel as such and write down the value and then attach it on the parcel itself and ship it so it can be processed normally and you get charged. But if you buy from based neets from japan on ebay they don't know that shit and will just send it out unmarked. Same goes for some companies but you have to find one first and get lucky. Amiami and GSC will always mark the parcels.
>>10726131>But if you buy from based neets from japan on ebay they don't know that shit and will just send it out unmarked.Just remember that even Japan Post is gonna start cracking down.https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/ead/index_en.html
>>10726130>>10726131I have ordered from like 4 different stores so far and I got charged entirely random amounts on every single order.One store did not include shipping costs and declared the item as a much lower value but I got charged more than that value in taxes. If I actually had bought an item worth that much I would have paid more in taxes than the actual item. Fucking insane. Now that I have a €250 order coming it's keeping me up at night. I assume I'm gonna get charged about €70 but who knows, it could be €150. It's completely made up, aside of VAT they just tax you to their hearts' content with made up bullshit "clearance fees"
>>10726139Which country?>One store did not include shipping costs and declared the item as a much lower value but I got charged more than that value in taxesCould be a case of them calling bullshit and taxing from a set list they got.Some countries will even open up and google the wares if they doubt the value.
>>10726053agreed, but every other aspect of the SHF fails, poor plastic quality, shiny, ugly joints, rigid soft plastic skirt.
>>10726143I doubt they'd be this thorough. Also the item was listed as "plastic model kit".But if you order things from China, they always slip through. HMMM...
>>10726168>But if you order things from China, they always slip through. HMMM...If you just mean Ali, you're actually paying VAT at checkout. Though for some reason even with DDP, they still takes ages to get through customs...
>>10726172No I mean anything coming from China. If you order from eBay, Japanese orders get taxed, Chinese orders slip through. Always. It's almost as if there were shady deals going on
>hunt for meme hippo for months on and off>remember my language has it's own word for hippo>found himbruh
>>10726112>isn't vat included in the price already?Yes. That's part of the markup reason. But the important thing is that you don't need to pay the bullshit prices some carriers ask you just to de the paperwork for customs clearance. In my country I need to pay more than 20 euros for that plus the actual customs tax. It's a total robbery.
>>10726189what is the meem of thishippo
>>10726279I want one
>>10726189That's nice bruh.
>>10726274Pantsahat on YouTube. Stop motion channel that makes funny videos. Hippo is one of his recurring characters.
>>10726295where do I find a small velvet hippo?
>>10726306...ong god frfr
>>10726304It's a kinder surprise toy from years ago.
>>10726311oh I'm in the US so we don't g et those
>>10726315Grim. They even sell dragon ball choco eggs in my country.
>>10726320This is just going to be the whole thread, isn't it?
this is more annoying than the tranny plush shark
>>10726338I mean you can try and report it. Jannies were working extra hard in the last few day with the schizo on the figuarts thread.
On the subject of customs, the reason you get hit sometimes and not others may be related to laws in your country that dictate how much you're allowed to spend before it gets taxedYears ago, in my country, you could spend up to around 45€ and the package would never be held by customs because it was law that imported goods up to that value would not pay duties Then they lowered it to 20€ and a few years back they changed it again to all packages, regardless of value being retained and taxed, even if free (in which case you have to fill out special forms, I think) As for value, when the max amount of 43€ was crossed, they would usually hit you with a percentage based on the country's taxes (there's a specific term for it in my native language but I don't know it in english) plus a huge fee for handling the paperwork, usually 20 Then when the maximum import value was lowered to 20 they also lowered how much they charged you. Now that everything you import must be held and taxed, they charge you 5 bucks for doing paperwork or using their services plus 23% tax HOWEVER using certain companies like DHL is pretty much suicide and getting scammed. They do not care about the rules or laws and function outside them in countries like mine. They'll charge 23% tax plus a very high handling fee plus hidden service fees and storage fees and they're very anal and sketchy when asking documents, essentially asking for very specific forms or screenshots and receipts that aren't usually required when using postal services or doing customs work yourself I believe in the USA, DHL has a great reputation because they can import goods to a really high value without paying custom charges. I think it's a ridiculously huge value that you'd never reach from just buying a couple figures at a time, so DHL never hits them with theses fees, But for Europeans, they're extremely nasty and shady because of this nonsense
>>10726364Yeah DHL sucks cocks for international shipping.
>>10726374who's the silver guy

What’s the best monogatari figure?
>>10726421Meant to type figma obviouslyMy vote goes to Hachikuji, although Shinobu is really nice and simple too. I’m trying to resist buying it though, I’m broke
>>10726374oh that Gabi is looking good
>>10726374Well, more money for other figures I guess.
>>10726295oh, dat unfunny cringe and forced shit channel?
>>10726421They're all pretty good. In fact, I'm genuinely surprised a lot of them have plenty of optional accessories. Kanbaru's probably the best of them, she has a yellow rainjacket with her, a cloth(?) one at that.
I wish it were possible to euthanize autists through the internetI'd actually sign up to be a full time janny and I'd do it for free.
>>10726390she was already announced in a previous event, slowpoke

>>10726450Oh damn, for a second I thought she comes with a table and a breakfast bread set
>>10726453Oh shit is this that NEVER GIVE UP guy??
*saves figma*>nothing personal kiddo.
So other than >>10726453 it's all the same unpainted shit from previous event? great
>>10726466No we got this >>10726375. 2 figures so far.
>>10726433He looks really good, but I'm probably happy with the SHF. Interested to see the full array of accessories. We know he's getting his fire, so if they get to Yuzuriha she'll probably come with some of her slime, it'd be interesting to see how they pull that off.
>>10726467THAT'S A LOT!
>>10726390Huh, so they're continuing HoloX.Sucks it's not Koyori or Iroha next.

It was fun while it lasted.Maybe I can just see things this way because I've been into this line for 14 years, so I've accepted that some of my favorites will never get a figure long ago. You learn to take it easy.Being able to finally say "I have the whole Fate figma line" is liberating. Plenty of other toys to collect after all.
>>10726490Yes. But it has nothing to do with not knowing that.
>>10726490Milkmaid and Dead Space are extremely mainstream, you should feel special ed for not at least recognizing them Everything else is zoomer stuff or pet passion projects from the staff so I guess it's fine not knowing about them
>>10726499just being on this board at all probably makes us special ed
>>10726500I recognized the milkmaid but couldnt place it and have heard of dead space at least
>>10726498It's still stupid that in the 15 years the Fate line has been going on, they never finished the original fucking seven servants and masters.
>>10726498>mostly saber slop>no decent 2.0 Shiro>no illya>no kotomine>no dark sakura>not the cool saber slop castoria or morgan>no oberonNo thank you.
>>10726454As much as she's gonna cost she ought to.
>>10726498I haven't won yet, they never released Heracles and samurai Assassin, those fucks.
>>10726505>Kotomine wins poll>GSC pretends it never happenedNothing to Rejoice about.Who knows, maybe that Lancer was supposed to be Zero Lancer all along..
My sad cope is the fact that they resurrected that Nobunaga scale figure. I eat what I can get at this point.
>>10726496Anon I don't think they are making more buruaka figma...
>>10726505Of course it is. But as I said, that's something I pretty much accepted over ten years ago. And after Grand Order arrived, the chances for a full stay night cast pretty much disappeared due to the huge amount of new characters.Then again, without Grand Order the line would have died long ago.>>10726506You say that like I don't wish to have a Kotomine figma. And everything else in your list for that matter. But that's the figma line for you.>>10726516Another two I wanted since forever.>>10726518>Kotomine wins pollI remember that. What a false hope that was.I'm sure anyone who started collecting back at the beginning will understand my somewhat dettached point of view. Remember when the release of Rider was a huge surprise because until then the only servant releases were four versions of Saber for almost three years? And how the Archer prototype was pretty much cancelled until the UBW anime convinced them to make a new sculpt and release it? And finally having a Gilgamesh and Lancer felt like a dream come true.>>10726520Just saw it. I'm not into statues but it's really tempting, have a soft spot for Nobbu.
>>10726530>They make Emiya Archer>But he's the wrong size because of his big-ass bowMAX FACTORYYYYY
>>10726532Funny thing is, the prototype seemed to be bigger but they obviously wanted to save on plastic when they redesigned it, nonetheless I don't think the bow mattered much in that decision.On that note, Iskandar is another one of those characters I've been wanting since forever together with Kojiro, Heracles and Kotomine.
>>10726457>>10726460Reminder that this is based as fuck. Higanjima go check it out.
>Still no Fire Emblem Engage figmaWhat the fuck.
>>10726552They will only release the vtuber rat and you will like it.
>>10726473>if they get to Yuzuriha she'll probably come with some of her slime, it'd be interesting to see how they pull that off.it's an accessory you can easily DIY
I'm glad we finally got Misato
>>10726603I'm pretty sure his name is Zelda
>>10726595>gendo nendoroid is classic gendoFUCK.
>getting mogged by nendoroidCHADSits over for us bros...
>>10726569You just need some Elmer’s glue, Sodium Tetraborate and water...
>>10726609>trying to compete with NendoroidGODS
>makes figmas more expensive>makes nendos cheaper and of more IPs>"hmmm, why arent people interested in figmas? Better make them even more expensive and release less, that'll fix it"bros help me cope...
>>10726595i dont want any more nendos but i need to finish out my evangelion line cause i dont think we'll ever get anythin else than these goddamn chibis.
>>10726634Let the hatred flow, anon. This is the fault of displayshitters and in-box fags and the mouthbreathing toy reviewers who influence them. They're gonna make figures with swappable pre-posed limbs so you can create 3 poses total, they will come with a neutral face and the rest will be store exclusives scattered among every other figure in the cast. All because of normies. Normies ruin everything.
>>10726634I mean, I've never been a fan of chibi stuff, but if Amiami and MFC are anything to go by, Nendoroids sell more than any other import action figure line. More than Figma, Figuarts, Mafex, or etc. Gojo outsold even all statues on Amiami in 2021, which is nuts. Makes sense they'd put more of their effort there and in PUPs that are both cheaper to produce than Figma.
>>10726673nendos can be cute and some PUPs can look cool but I just cant get my head into the mindset of not preferring an ACTUAL 1/12 figure, like the appeal of having an accurate version of the character you can play around and pose with straight out of whatever media theyre from, it just wins by a landslide for me and I genuinely dont understand how most people dont feel the sameunless its the price then yeah, but gsc could easily lower prices and probably make more money than they are now because theyd sweep up more normies
>>10726673I don't even hate Nendoroids but the reason for Nendo dominance isn't that they're chibi, it's that they don't need to be posed at all. Nobody poses them in those display photos, they're just standing there like funko pops and this appeals to normies. Same with PUPs. Normies just want pre-posed statueshit they can plop on a display and never touch again.
>>10726684>gsc could easily lower prices and probably make more money than they are now because theyd sweep up more normiesYou should assume that they know the market way better than you do. There companies are competent and they run statistic analysis and have way more info than you do.The reason for all the jewish shit they're doing with action figures is probably that the market for them is shrinking because posing an action figure is too difficult and challenging for normies, therefore those relatively few people who are still willing to buy action figures need to be milked as ruthlessly as possible. PUP and Nendos are basically cheap statueshit. A normie with more money to blow will buy 1/6 statues. Action figures come with all sorts of problems. If you give them cool articulation then the 20IQ reviewers will complain that it's too difficult to pose. What does an action figure offer to a normie except problems?
>>10726378You anons think they got her face right? Her face looks off even on lots of the premium statues out there.
>>10726701I know, you're right, I just wanna vent y'know? As someone who's only been into figmas and stuff for the last couple of years its just kinda depressing hearing about how cheap shit used to be before I collected :(
>>10726431Elite Special Forces of the USA
>>10726707I know anon. I'm seething too. I am just giving you a target for your hatred: normies. They have ruined every single hobby because they can now access information with smartphones.
>>10726451I dont understand how sales cant be enough for Fate as opposed to creating any other character from another IP. Does Type Moon charge assrape for the licensing? Or is Fate somehow deader than the haphazard gacha slop Figma occasionally puts out?
>>10726375This and link are needs... Now if only they would do Zelda.
Not really excited for anything sadly. Vaguely interested in Alice >>10726375 since I started playing Nikke recently, but who knows if I'll still be interested by the time she releases. Also not sure why her and Modernia are coming out in different lines, both by GSC.>>10726505I get the men since that's never really been their focus with the Fate line, but no Illya and Medea when the franchise was at the height of its popularity is a crime. You'd think Illya especially would have sold well with her own spinoff series.
>>10726689>>10726684>>10726701This. all my friends just straight up hate posable figures because "joints are ugly" and/or "I dont want to break it" which is why they either pay 3x more or consume nendos mindlessly and never pose or interact with them afterwards.I personally dont see the point of getting deep into physical representations of anime and shows I like unless I interact with the figs all the time.
Pay three times more for a statue*
>>10726730ugh why are people so boring, they may as well just print out pictures of the characters they like if all they want to do is have something static that vaguely gestures to their interest collecting dust in the corner of their room
>>10726472only one I want but what the fuck why did she get normal elbow joints and gura got fucked?
>>10726730I sincerely hate normalfags so much. It's like they exist to ruin everything I like.
>>10726754>>10726749Ok I'm willing to put my nendo doom posting on pause we're so back
>>10726730>>10726747Most japanese otaku also prefer statues, it's not only a western normalfag thing. And even if I'm not into statues myself I completely understand their reasoning (statues being bigger and more eyecatching, not wanting joints to break the sculpt, not caring about the act of posing and just wanting to have a nice looking representation of some character they like on display...)Articulated figures have always been somewhat of a niche, specially articulated anime characters. Hell, the figma line was what popularized it in the first place (most previous attempts looked like ass) and it only started in 2008.
>>10726741>>10726747Im not even actively trying to be different from everybody else in real life but I just end up doing and liking shit nobody else does. Youd really think cool import action figures would appeal to more people but normies gotta normie I guess.
>>10726754eyes wayyyyy too far apart
>>10726754Add some horns and Fate is saved, anons!
>>10726759I realise these facts but its still very hard for me to grasp and accept how figures are not more popular. Only people who still enjoy their childhood toys seem to expand into import toys as opposed to adults newly entering into these lines.
>>10726759>Most japanese otaku also prefer statuesOf course they do. They're the same people who like moeblob and isekai.
>>10726770>"I was reincarnated as a nendoroid!?" coming January 2024
>>10726730I used to despise statues, but the older I've gotten the more appealing I find them. My collection's about 85% action figures and 15% statues at this point. Sometimes it's about the character/series lacking any decent action figures(Dananronpa), sometimes the effects it comes with can kick a bland character design up a notch(JJK), and other times I'm just too lazy/depressed to take the time to mess with all the alternate parts import figures come with and decide on a cool pose.
>>10726774Don't give them ideas goddammit
>>10726775The only reason I bought a couple statues is that they're cast-offs with nice titties. Otherwise I simply don't understand why you'd buy a statue over a figure other than the larger size. The fact I can't interact with them makes them extremely boring to me no matter how fancy they look.
>>10726769>I realise these facts but its still very hard for me to grasp and accept how figures are not more popular. Only people who still enjoy their childhood toys seem to expand into import toys as opposed to adults newly entering into these lines.You yourself answered your own question, the vast majority of people stop caring about toys after a certain age so when they start getting interested in these things they go for statues. We're in the minority, as simple as that.>>10726770I hate the isekai genre with a passion but at the end of the day if you collect japanese imports you're at the mercy of what is popular over there, they're obviosly going to give priority to these things. That's something one must accept. People here wouldn't want to accept it but the idea behind Pop Up Parade was a total success. Decent looking statues at economic prices is going to make way more money than any action figure line.
>>10726788The thing is that action figures right now seem to be past the stage where they're a niche market. They're getting both warped to appeal to displayfags (swappable pre-posed limbs, sculpt being a priority over articulation) and milked to unbearable levels (store exclusive shit and other jewery, general price inflation). They're bound to implode soon as is the case with everything in this sort of situation where the customer base is too narrow to compete with normies' awful tastes.Honestly I would have probably drifted quickly into model kits but both Gundam and stuff like Frame Arms Girls have little appeal to me. Kotobukiya released a robot series with crazy articulation and I'm very happy about that, but they're also annoying me with the same store exclusive crap that GSC is doing except you can't find the exclusives anywhere but crappy sites like nin-nin.
Figma's not deadIt's just focused on kino now
>>10726758But that's old news...
>>10726634They release the same amount they always have if not more, it just seems smaller because nendoroid production has skyrocketed and pop ups are cheap and popular, so they just overshadow figma
>>10726774We already had a goodsmile shilling anime produced by goodsmile.>https://youtu.be/zTv1HhJDOMM
>>10726801>The thing is that action figures right now seem to be past the stage where they're a niche market.How do you figure? An affordable line like pop up parades show's up and completely blows past figma in popularity right away. Even with the super popular Dragonball SHFs, there's always more banpresto figures and many figuarts zero. If you've been following imports for even a year it's incredibly apparent that articulated action figures are a niche of the figure market, which in itself is a very niche hobby. Even with anime culture being more popular than ever, it's still ultimately a niche to general audiences. Ask your co-workers that are your age, or late 20's into 30s. If they care about anime at all it's more likely they remember stuff from the early 2000s, or if it's current stuff it's just JJK, and even then most of them would balk at spending 50 bucks on a toy. Articulated figures are a niche sub-genre of a niche hobby, and GSC is wise to it which is why they charge what they do.
>>10726743Clasicc move. Popular thing can be made like shit because it will still sell.
>>10726831>Articulated figures are a niche sub-genre of a niche hobby, and GSC is wise to it which is why they charge what they do.Yeah but there comes a point where you're milking too hard and also removing things that make figures worth buying (articulation, face swaps) which drives people off. I have no intention to buy Nendoroids or PUPs so I'll probably cut down or quit. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
>>10726838>and also removing things that make figures worth buying (articulation, face swaps) which drives people offWhat makes a figure worth buying for us doesn't reflect what the majority of people wants. That's the whole point of this.
>>10726818>They release the same amount they always have if not more,They don't. Even if you count generic stuff like Figma styles, the amount of releases have been dropping in recent years. Excluding rereleases/deluxe editions, there were 37 Figmas announced in 2023, 44 in 2022, 54 in 2021, 60+ in 2020, etc. If anything, they're winding down to the amount of releases they had earlier in the line's life.https://www.figma.jp/en/products/tag/figma/announced/2023
>ITT: figmakeks seething
>figma jogo and figma mahito announced 1 year ago>no pictures after 1 yearSo that was a fucking lie alright.
>>10726811tl note: in this case "kino" means "trash"
When will they show Phos prototype?
>>10726870Imagine still being obsessed with a 6 year old mediocre cg anime
>>10726873I don't have to imagineNow gimme the goods.
>>10726873but enough about csm
>>10726880keksorry but you gotta wait 5 more years to make that joke, anon.
>>10726634>>10726673>>10726684Figma is under the retarded direction of Max Watanabe; a fag obsessed with shitty bikes, Nendoroid is under the direction of a collective mind knoe as Nendoron; a group of weirdos with a vast knowledge on popular stuff with a passion for cute stuff
>>10726596>>10726754Wild that Figma is fairly consistently using double joints now, especially with fairly old tech. It does work well usually, so that's fine though. I almost imagine they'd have done some sort of double figma disc ball, just with smaller ones.
>>10726891Makes me wonder why the hell they didn't do it for Isaac Clarke. Also sucks they weren't doing this when Doom Slayer was being made. He could use the double knees.
>>10726855I just went through actual releases, not announcements, on goodsmile info's figma page for the last 5 years, 2019-2023. I did not count DXs, re-releases. Figma style bodies with multiple versions (such as china dress in different colors) I counted as 1. >201961 releases>202062 releases>202160 releases >202264 releases >202354 releasesSo this was a slump year. 2024 has 22 scheduled releases using the same counting (no DXs, releases, etc,) and currently has 23 releases lined up through through June, with a 24th in August. So they still have the second half of the year to fill in. I'll admit I was wrong, I hadn't actually looked at 2023's release output yet and just saw the all time high of 2022 and assumed we were still on that track. When it comes to announcements I'd always been used to being disappointed anyway, back when we got a fuckload of them of every event it was a lot of fateshit, and I'm not a fatefag, so when I see only 2-4 figma announced that I care about it just kinda feels like it always has. But I still don't think 1 slightly lower year is a sign of the end times. 2024 could still full up to more than 2023's releases with how inconsistent the monthly number of releases have been, but I doubt it'll hit 2022's high of 64. Even if we hovered back around 50ish releases, that's probably around the mid 2010s, which wasn't bad either. Or maybe I'm just a giant figmafag who will defend the line until it putters out I kill myself
>>10726374Where are Ciel and Shiki?
just came in stock at HLJ
>>10726814But I personally hadn't seen a pic before...
>>10726870>>10726876Can you imagine figma Phos with additional swappable arms, legs and heads to recreate every transformation before moon arc?
>>10726741That's what the new hit trend Acrylic Display Stands are for!>>10727061Wild, but I've noticed a decline myself.Past three years, I bought in2021: 27 figma (of which 7 older releases)2022: 19 figma (of which 2 older releases)2023: 12 figma (of which 3 older releases).Also just 2 figma pre-orders left.
>>10727061I feel like those numbers are a bit optimistic. I only went through 2022 and 2021 specifically on goodsmile.info, but excluding DXs and rereleases I got 57 for 2022 and 44 for 2021(a whopping 20 of the 70 releases were rereleases, maybe because of covid) when counting only figures and vehicles. However, looking at it by releases, it does disprove the straight decline I thought the line was on. Regardless, like you said it's not the amount of releases that's the problem. Early-mid 2010s is when I bought most of my figma because that's when they were releasing the most stuff that appealed to me and to sweeten the pot, prices were 1/3-1/2 of what they are now. Lately, I've mainly just been backtracking on older figures I missed.
>>10727061Has the quality gone down compared to previous years though? I'm new to the hobby.
>>10727139I count in reissues though, but the older releases after it are like Mandarake or still finding a 2019 figma sealed in a geek store.
>>10727141Yes, in my experience it started dropping since 2018 because I required more and more part replacements.
>>10727141As with all figures it's a case by case basis but overall we had some of the best figures yet this year
>>10727144I am talking about build quality, QC etc.
>>10727145figma in the OP was one of the worst figma I've gotten, actually.I mentioned it before, but this figma fresh off pre-orders arrived looking like a bootleg with the issues it had.GSC replaced a few parts, but they might as well have sent a whole new figure.Still stuck with the playdoh hair though, but I bought her for headswap anyways.
>>10727145QC is solid. There will always be faulty products no matter what you buy but GSC replaces it in that case. Build quality is in most cases the best in the industry. Most figures look like cut out of the game/anime. There are tons of shitposters samefagging right now though so you'll probably hear bunch of bullshit and half truths.
>>10727153>There are tons of shitposters samefagging right now though>My figma are perfect so anyone who complains is a shitposter.That's not how this works, son.Like you said yourself, "there will always be faulty products". You've just been lucky so far.
As you see the poster above is a troll. People are really emotional about Figmas superiority. Especially from other less quality and no QC having brands.
>>10727171Yes, keep escaping from reality, coward.
>>10726887You forgot Max is drifting more and more towards his true love: PlamoI wouldn't mind it as much if the prices matched what you paid for, like say gunpla, but they really cut corners in comparison.
>>10726887You WILL buy all the cyclist merch.
>>10727158>wow your car didn't explode upon start up? You must have been really lucky so far.You just been unlucky how about that? You think people with flawless products will come and complain about it here? Low IQ take but you are a shitposter anyway.
>>10727153>but GSC replaces it in that caseEven if you're a filthy gaijin?>>10727158>>10727183QC issues can happen and as long as the company doesn't run with the money I have no issue with that.
>>10727184yeah you write them and they will send you replacments or replace it completely if it's really fucked. Shit happens. Some dude got recently 2 left asscheeks on a figure. A very understandable mistake by some poor and tired chink. He'll get a right asscheeck sent to him.
>>10727184Yes I got a regular face on an exclusive face bonus and they send me the actual thing later.
anyone know how to fix loose bicep swivel? it keeps falling off
>>10727201Coat some layers with polish or put some paper in it.
>>10727145Imo they've gotten generally worse. I got lucky for most of my stuff, but there's always a few things that tick me off. My Yumi Yotsuya was missing a large fin on her wings and a covering for her cannons, paint was splotchy, and her hair looked like clay. It was a widespread issue too, the point where they had to offer everyone a full replacement.My Mejiro McQueen's arms disconnect at the slightest bit of movement, had to heat it up to narrow down the ball cup so it'd stay better. Her toe joint came right out of the box, apparently because they forgot the lil peg that goes I'm between.And then pic rel felt like they didn't think it through. Her legs are basically paralyzed due to her hard plastic jacket and because of her accessory of sitting down, she splits in the middle on the slightest shake.Tl;Dr got lucky on a lot, but it's pretty bad when I do get QC
>>10726189>>10726274>>10726280>>10726291>>10726304just search "natoons dc 021", you should be able to find it. Bought one a few weeks ago for like €2 lol
>>10726759I took the statue pill recently... I understand it completely now. A dynamic well posed statue under good lighting can have a lot of power behind it, especially if you have micro details like clothing creases and what not that can't be replicated on an articulated figure. It has to be really detailed though, I doubt I'd ever go for an anime statue.
>>10727201Anything that builds up some thickness should do e.g. topcoats, hairspray, superglue, nail polish etc.you don't even have to worry about residue since you can just mask the rest of the arm and do a clean job before putting it back in
>>10727181He's really milking Sophia in that line.
Think we’ll get Frieren figmas?
>>10726811nothing says "kino" like fifty variations of some no substance OC thats spread across like five other brands that's only appeal is big boobs and bunny suits apparently, and they can't even be consistent with the fucking bunny suits!If I see another Bunny Suit Planning Sophia F Shirring figma i'm gonna flip.
>>10727347You want me to be real with you? No.
Where is Kiara with color?
>>10727354Imagine being so gay that you don't want the ultimate cute girl in a bikini technology figmas that based Max Figma is giving us with Sophia and co.
>>10727433I want shit I actually care about. If I wanted nothing but endless coomer figures based off of original characters i'd be a native statuefag. I'm not blowing $100 a figure on some generic thing.
>>10727437Or snailshell. You don't have to buy statueshit for that.
>>10727139>Just two figma preorders leftsame, I only have Ruby and Weiss. Nothing else has really stuck out and while I would adore a Blake/Yang to finish the team it seems the general RWBY lethargy has set in as the japanese are want to do and drop the line after doing the first two characters. And I only bought Weiss in the hope of getting a full team, because I otherwise don't like her. There's definitely a few older ones i'd be willing to grab in the future but I don't have the space for them right now.
>>10727440No the point is I don't fucking want vapid coomershit. The closest I have is Taimanin Sakura and at least that's an actual character and not a lifeless entity made exclusively for cheesecake figures
>>10726453>dat intense asian guy in locker roomIs that who I think it is?
>>10727452No but you can use him for a custom.
>>10726450The fuck?She looks gentle in one angle, then in another angle she looks like an annoyed maid.
>>10727446I'm still sad Monogatari ends at Yotsugi and not Ougi.
>>10727449NTA but that's a literal, actual coomer fig and you bitch at people about snail shell? dude get a grip lol
>>10726490That's a Vermeer painting
>>10727449Anon...Of all the figures you could have used as an example lol >>10727455Two faceplates probably
>>10727461It feels really weird that the only japanese figure line that's got quite a large majority of its main cast and even weird bit characters is the SHF DB line, even if over half of them are P-Bandai.Like nobody else even comes close, figma has a few that get a good way through but then just stop dead once its past the immediate limelight. Nendos aren't even much better but at least there they'll throw out a Misato or Lina Inverse or Saint Tail out of nowhere. Hell they did all seven rozen maidens years after that series was extremely relevant and years after they stopped that line dead at Shinku/Gin.
>>10727465Snail shell is just polynians for people who prefer boobs and flesh over grey penis bulge robots.
>>10727476If only someone started a line of figures with flesh boobs and penis bulge girls...
>>10727475Madoka get everything.
>>10727475It's cuz the DBZ line is maintained by Western collectors who want to have a "gotta catch em all" display. It started simply with wanting to have all Z fighters, then various forms, then villains and now the line is at a point where collectors feel they're so far in and so invested that they can't miss a single release or that they might as well grab as many side-characters as they can before they get a character that "finishes" the collection like a Kid Buu or a Janemba That kind of collecting mentality for action figures is rare, even people who obsess over a single character and build shrines dedicated to them will usually focus on a lot of random merch but not action figures so the chances of a line hitting it big enough that you can have a huge cast or an almost complete roster is really low That said, GSC/Max Factory are also just weird about certain decisions, like avoiding Shinji, Kaworu and Misato but making Gendo, in his Rebuild design to boot. Feels like it's chosen by staff members who want to work on their favorites rather than trying to please fans or put out a "full team" release That said, over the years, there's been some IPs that got pretty extensive rosters in the figma line
>>10727492have you seen what Freeing chose to make Figma of? They are fucking weirdo
>>10727489Madoka is probably the closest, but I think Nanoha got most of its cast too, since it got multiple Nanohas and Fates in addition to a good chunk of sidecast.Miss those days in the early 2010s, honestly, when there was a high quantity of releases that were cheap and simple but effective. Lucky Star making use of headswaps to essentially give twice as many characters was a good touch even if some of them didn't line up bodywise, still was nice to get something for those secondary characters.
...no word huh?
>>10727489What about Haruhi?
>>10727508I was in doubt but they actually made him too...
>>10727492Gendo was FREEing, right? and the only eva figma before were the 2.0 figs made in like 2009, so while you got basically definitive versions of Mari and Rei you were stuck with that awful test plugsuit Asuka since they didn't bother with the normal design for her. Its just somewhat baffling because you can see there's strange hangups the line would get on for years before something new would change the focus.For years there were complaints of too many Generic Schoolgirls with generic schoolgirl accessories, and too many mikus, then there was too many fate characters, now its not enough of anything.Lines get completely hung up with little word, not that SHF is a stranger to that either, going by their sailor moon line being relegated to endless reprints of the animation color versions of the senshi with no signs of reissues for Tuxedo, Super/Eternal Moon, the Super Senshi or Black Lady in sight. But it felt kinda dirty for Persona 5 to get basically the entire main cast while 3/4 took YEARS just to get their protagonists.
>>10727505In the same pit as that Terraformars guy and KnK Shiki.
>>10727519ofcourse they made the whole cast
>>10727524Haruhi literally only missed like... Kyon's sister, they did basically everybody else of note and besides kyon and koizumi they're all dirt fucking cheap nowadays.
>>10727505Why does MFC list this character as trans and also BAMF (??) Girl?I thought he was just a dude?And yes, pretty much cancelled, unless GSC decides to bring him back out of nowhere
>>10727533groups are weird I don't pay attention to them. for some reason ruby is listed in the "queen of hearts club" despite not even being a heart motif character
>>10727530yeah there are some weird figures too. Like there was some weird ps2 game?? And it had a haruhi figma in armor in it? Shit like that. One day I will hunt them down when I me preorders dry up and money becomes fluid again
>>10727538yeah that one is also really cheap despite literally being the first ever figma, easy enough to find without the game iirc
>>10727520>fate charactersJust say saber. Not the same thing.
>>10727542wait that one was the FIRST?
>>10727546It came out at the end of january 2008 and fgima 001 >>10727553 came out on february.
>>10727543I mean FGO, actually. Before that I guess you had>Saber>Saber Alter>Casual Saber>Shirou>Rin>Nero (only included with Fate/Extra LE)>Nero Bride (only included with Fate/Extra CCC LE)>Saber Fate/Zero>Irisviel von Einzbern>Kiritsugu Emiya>Saber 2.0>Archer/Emiya>Shirou 2.0>Rin 2.0>Caster/Tamamao no Maethen everything afterwards is post FGO
>>10727533I believe the entity called Boogiepop is male, but he inhabits/possesses a girl, which I guess people are trying to equate with transgender. The wiki for Boogiepop also says he's a split personality that's so visually separate from his host that people can actually tell him apart from Touka just by appearance.Either way, I think it's inaccurate to call him trans. Real bummer that it seems to be shelved. I love the design
SP is usually exclusive releases that wasn't sold on retail.
>>10727584...is it possible Max Factory embarrassed about the fact their first ever release had to be paired with a video game to sell? It's weird they don't list Magical Girl Haruhi on their website and Yuki's description makes it seem like she was "their debut first release EVAR, SERIOUSLY GUYS!"
>>10727551SP is the "special product" line and has an entirely different numbering starting point
>>10727501>but I think Nanoha got most of its cast too,Zafira, last remaining Wolkenritter, never.Would've liked the original Reinforce, too.Maybe some Vivid too, like Einhart and Corona.That name aged poorly..Haruhi passed on Imouto (I eventually got a fill-in with the ver.Ka).Lucky Star passed on some, even with the headswap.BRS OVA passed on YuuBRS TV ignored the entire real worldMuv-Luv TE and Canaan finished their duos/trios with nendoroids, but of course not figma.desu, I'm good with Monogatari now as I don't care about Ougi.>>10727492>who want to have a "gotta catch em all" displayMeanwhile the only ones making themselves known on their Socials are those who want just Saiyans. I love outliers like Cui getting figs.>>10727542Brave Haruhi, I got her some years ago. She was extremely leaking plasticizer, so keep that in mind if you want to get her too.>>10727520Sadly enough, I still prefer my Asuka 2.0 Fraulein Revoltechs over the figma...
>>10727602Poor Zafira. Being the only male Wolkenritter sealed his fate.And they never released Alph either so no kemonomimi Lyrical Nanoha character at all.
>>10727602The biggest loss for lucky star imo is Akira Kogami. But she would have required a completely different sculpt from the usual LS girls and likely wasn't as popular anyway.Even massive series that you'd think would be able to swing more than 2-3 releases like MHA get completely stonewalled nowadays, like you'd think they'd have been able to get more than just Deku, Bakugo and Ochaco out of that but nope.
>>10727602>Meanwhile the only ones making themselves known on their Socials are those who want just SaiyansYeah that's the majority of DB fans on social mediaBut there's definitely enough people who are into secondary and even tertiary characters or else Bandai would've abandoned the idea long ago After all, Bandai is the company that starts a line, announces and shows off fully painted prototypes, only to cancel everything after 2 releases, sometimes even just 1. If nobody was sustaining Cui and friends with sales numbers, Bandai sure as hell wouldn't be making them
>>10727622Still feeling burned by them showing prototypes of characters like Rain, Allenby, Char and Faye Valentine only to never release any of them. GSC hasn't done this nearly as often as bandai.
>>10727602Forever mad they never made Fate's shin sonic form.
>>10727628is the only difference the milkbags?
>>10727627I think Lupin III fans had the worst fate in that Bandai gave them Lupin, Fujiko, Jigen and Zenigatta only for Goemon's fully painted prototype to be shown and then never released Other characters get shown and put away but in the Lupin line, they just decided to put out all the main cast except for one, guaranteeing you'd never get closure on the whole team and line Really cruel of John Bandai
>>10727651Christ. At least with Cowboy Bebop it was a foregone conclusion that the line would die off immediately after the Spike/Vicious one two because its the same shit every time with that series. Lupin got 80% there just to have a heart attack at the finish line.
>>10727476polynian has boobs aswell anon.>>10726749articulated ears, and unlike shf articulated horse.i dont even like the source of this but i like the horse.>>10726596man not painted yet, i want my twink pre-order and be msotly done with the line
>>10727476Honestly Snail Shell went into broader things pretty quickly. At this point they're leaning on titties no more than GSC. The newer figure prototypes are drastically less coomerish on average than Milk T etc.What's pornographic about this?
>>10726504Johannes Vermeer was the painter of the milkmaid
>>10727505WE STAND UNSHAKEN
>>10727635It's a more revealing outfit in general for her.
>>10727730fucking lmao is her ass made of slimehow does it pour out of tears in her panties
>>10727762Magical clothes are just that tight.
>>10727675NTA but imo this is just such a nothing looking mecha musume. A bunch of greebles and bits, if I want an OC Donut Steel mecha girl i'll buy a 30 Minute Sister at least those are cheap and made to customize.
huh? Why did nobody post the new falselander yet?
>>10727789Well she's way more mecha than a shinki which is just an accessorized anime girl, stylistically she's way cooler than shinkis, face actually looks great unlike shinkis, comes with a ton of accessories, has glowing wings, turns into a centaur and she's got the best articulation I've ever seen on a humanoid figure.
>>10727808It was shown 1 month ago.
>>10727808you fucking made me check if it just dropped
>>10727808Falselander? More like makes my phallus stand-er heh
>>10727081pancake batter eyes... I dunno. I really loved demon's souls back in 2009 and I thought she would be an instant buy for me but I was hesitant to even buy the knight because of the redesign. only went through with it for the large sword of moonlight. maybe it's the texture on the wax covering her eyes or the fact her feet are caked in shit.
>>10727435Is this a figma or a model kit. Please dont be a fucking model kit.
>>10727354>Not wanting blonde aryan titty goddessSophia is peak kino anon. Just big tits alone are kino since Figma for some reason rarely does them.
Aryan breeding factories
>>10727911its a model kit
>>10727912sophia looks pretty generic imo
>>10726450surprised they didn't do the girl with a pearl earring since she cute
>>10727939And to make it worse, 1/10 scale with an 8k yen pricetag.Should be less than half if I have to build it myself.
>>10727951If Table Museum doesn't get killed off, they'll probably get around to her at some pointI'd like to see them try some crazier stuff though like a Picasso in figma form lol
>>10727911Bro if it doesn't have an actual honest to goodness figma stand it's a model kit
>>10727973then I could finally create my 1/12 15th century dutch homestead diorama
>>10727973I think this Table Museum thing is a bit tacky, but I'd buy a figma of every single person in this pic
Lost media saberface
On her way to find all of Yukaris weird tank porn
>>10728076I can hear the wheezing from this glorious painting
Is Kancolle a forgotten IP now?
>>10726472>No asunaThey don't want money
>>10724559>reminder that they went with the shit design of Gendo this sucks...
>>10728134is this design more popular in japan or something? or is this just a marketing thing where they HAVE to use the newer version of the character to promote new thing over old thingso annoying, its why i bit the bullet and bought the old vash revoltech, cause I know if we get any new vash figures odds are itll be of the new design
>>10728139>where they HAVE toThey could've easily included a pre-timeskip head.His uniform doesn't change at all from 1.0 to 4.0, only his glasses.>>10728139>old vash revoltechI recently swapped most of his joints to normal ones. Makes him even more fantastic.
>>10728083Where did you get that computer and how did you get the little screen on it >>10728111It's just kind of been replaced with other Gacha trends. Happened to Fate Grand Order too, it doesn't seem like it's getting as much compared to the newer competitors I just wish we could have the next big trendy fad be people mass loving old anime shows again so these companies pay a little more attention to releasing classic and even obscure characters. But Japan seems to hate old IPs unless they're ingrained into the culture like Gundam and Kamen Rider
>>10728145Damn didnt know he had the same body, ghat changes thingsHavent opened my vash yet but looking forward to it, he looks awesome. Second hand so hoping hes alright
>>10727912don't care I want characters from franchises I like. I wait hoping for a Seras Victoria day in and day out and was hoping the recent attention hellsing was getting would garner some stuff but apparently it was only for alucard and alexander.
>>10728139nah, because the nendos are all 2.0, even Misato uses her classic design and not the 3.0 permabitch design
To what extent can you strip Ultimate Madoka? I pretty much removed everything from Akuma Homura without issue.
>>10728151Youth days rement. You can open up the monitor to slip images behind it.Id be lying if i said I wasnt excited for more Nikke figmas but Japan going for a retro revival would be even nicer. Id definitely grab an ova version of Deunan Knute or Kanuka from Patlabor.
>>10728244Im almost the opposite. I buy just for the characters design and what franchise theyre from is pretty secondary. A Seras figma would be awesome though. Itll also force Max Factory to make a big titty character which is a very good thing.
>>10727965>8k yen pricetagsource?
>>10727965>with an 8k yen pricetagTheir price goes down very often, the good thing for being model kit is that company can do reprint as many times as they want and that keep the price down
>>10727449>I don't fucking want vapid coomershit.>The closest I have is Taimanin SakuraThe lack of self awareness is astounding
>>10727449>and at least that's an actual character and not a lifeless entity made exclusively for cheesecake figures
>>10728444>Youth days rement. You can open up the monitor to slip images behind it.Thanks! Cool feature. >>10728444>Deunan Knute or Kanuka from Patlabor.Those would be great. I'd also go for Dirty Pair. They've been so close to getting figures but one set was cancelled and all the other stuff ended up being static model kits
>>10728618Dirty pair would be the likeliest retro characters to be made and Im all for that. Id get them no questions asked.Who else is actually feasible? Its quite amazing Space Cobra and Golgo 13 have already been made. I feel like Cutey Honey, Bubblegum Crisis, Akira and Slayers have enough fame but literally anything else becomes too obscure and needs a lotto to be made.Protect gear and Hellsing are also way overdue for modern figures. Ill be getting that fluted armor protect gear guy for now.
>>10728635I think Vampire Hunter D probably still has enough fame to get a figure if we're going by the light novels. But if they're banking on adaptations to make a figure alongside it, pretty much no chance, sadly
>>10728501By looking at other Guilty Princess releases.>>10728503>the good thing for being model kit is that company can do reprint as many times as they want>Still waiting for certain kits to be reprinted
>>10727973would be interesting since I think the only artist they've double dipped on so far has been da vinky with vitruvian man and mona lisa. unless those japanese ukiyo-e ones were by the same guy. can't remember. >>10728076tacky how? good taste in paintings tho, repin is cool.
>>10728684>tacky how?I don't like this kind of ironic nod to pop culture but I admit I"m a joyless scrooge with no sense of humor.
>>10728684>those japanese ukiyo-e ones were by the same guyNah they weren'tKabuki dude was by Toshusai Sharaku and Yurei/Ghost lady was by Maruyama Okyo
>>10728444>You can open up the monitor to slip images behind it.i love how many re-ment screens allow for this, i printed some screenshots from shows before to put in my rement tv.
>>10727171nah figma QC is just as dog shit as every other toyline I've bought, people are just more vocal about it because of the import prices
>>10728936The Meguca from Mercury
>>10728936>>10729004grandmother said this..."being meguka is suffering.."
>>10729004there should be a magical girl anime where cutting off long hair results in a speed boost
>>10729081It's already the character development trope.
>>10729081>Majousekai Samson>Witches get their power from their hair>The longer the hair, the stronger the witch>The top tier witches have elaborate drill hairdos etc.>But if you cut a witch's hair, she loses all powers>Evil witches have found a way around this weakness and cut their hair short>Good witches with cute braids vs. yandere tomboys

Does anyone here in figma general have a comparison between the figma King Kazma and the SAS one? Trying to decide which one to get
>>10729622Ask on the furfag general.
Higurashi figma when?
>>10728691guess da vinci is the first double dip then. appropriate, I suppose.
>>10728767Figmas good enough in QC they are the baseline I compare everything else to.>>10728646The From soft figmas look absolutely stunning. Im sure theyll do an excellent job with D if it ever happens.
>>10727141I buy a lot of figma and I don't feel like quality has gone down as a whole. You'll have posters saying it's perfect because they never got hit, and some unlucky people will call it shit because they got unlucky. Every so often there's a genuine QC issue and you'll know because people everywhere will talk about it, most notably realistic portraits tend to be the worst, but here >>10727144 you can see they nailed Mads Mikkelsen. When it comes to plastic quality and whatnot, I rarely break any joints on accident. I got Doom Slayer or whatever they called him, and his little joint for the pod thing did break super easily, pretty much right out of the box. I think that's the only issue I personally have had in the last few years, and I usually pick up 6-12 figma a year.
Are there any differences between these two besides the color? Weird there arnt any videos comparing all the Emily variants.
>>10730451Just a recolor, man
>SHF sniped FriedeAnd no announcements for figma of them this event...
>>10730457Thanks, I was only buying one and wasn't sure if like the bust size was slightly different or some shit.
>>10730499Face honestly looks better than usual. Might even mistake for a figma at a distance.
>>10730506The eyebrows will always remind me of Yotsugi.
>>10730506Okay. what the FUCK ARE THOSE
>>10730520It's the year of innovation, my dude.
>>10730520An arm joint
>>10730521At least I’ve seen the Gura joint in some before and know it’s gonna be wack but I have zero point of reference for this one
>>10730528I'd compare it to gundam elbows, I'd guess.
>>10730512They remind me of [insert character with the same eyebrows that I ever saw first]
>>10730574You must be fun at parties.
>>10730506They look decent. I hope they are cheap.
>>10730654If they're like the SpyFam ones, about 45 bucks.
>>10730506I like the idea of a generic elf girl wizard but that skirt looks like a serious problem
>>10730713They'll be displayed at an event this weekend.Hope the angle's hiding a 2-piece skirt so it's at least a little flexible.I want to expand Goblin Slayer's party and the Queen's Blade Revoltechs aren't doing well. The girl who's supposed to be a dwarf is almost as tall as the elf lancer.
>>10730506Looks like her cloak thing will get in the way of her arm articulation.
HEADS UP SAMUS AVAILABLEhttps://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-145210
>>10730360I am so excited to get Mads. Dont have tactical desert guys to compliment him sadly.
>>10730906>tfw my Samus was shipped 5 days agoit's gonna be like... weeks... I hope I'll get her by the end of the month
>>10731005Is that a Gasaraki mech?
>>10730502don't listen to >>10730457, the boobs are bigger on the yellow one
>>10730713>that skirt looks like a serious problembecause it will be soft plastic?
>>10731171Shit, happy I picked the yellow one. Black has a beautiful color though.
>>10731171Don't tell me they changed bust on the bikini armor recolor too?
>>10731171>>10731188Max Factory really has some bizzare compulsion to hold back their bust sizes dont they?
>>10730506well I didn't expect anything and was still disappointed. Maybe if SHF didn't fuck up every face and paintjob I'd actually buy any of their trash for once. Even with their nonexistant QC
>>10731253Its fucking ridiculous because Bandai things that arent under the SHF brand are actually great. This ten year old AGP figure is better looking than any SHF I have.
>>10731276> This ten year old AGP figure is better looking than any SHF I have.buy more shf
>>10731171Looks like the hips look wider on the yellow swim suit body.pretty cool they are different.
>>10731279Which ones actually look good?
>>10731290A lot of Karate Bugs, some Dragon Ball figs, the Detective Conan ones, Lupin III ones, a few precure girls (mostly the Smile PreCure ones) Spy x Family ones (I admit some faceplates of Yor looks off), Bruce Lee, some of the Kinnikunman figs, The CSM ones, list goes on and on
>>10731290Generally they do better with masked and monster-designs.Unmasked humans are always a lottery.
>>10730521wtf were they thinking?
>>10731302>>10731305I should of clarified I think they often make better male and photoreal figs than Figma. Somehow they are just coin flip inconsistent for female figures. Thanks for the suggestions. Id get Vladilena if the opportunity arose. Also considering getting Indy or the Batta Auguments Kamen bugman. Not particularly interested in much of their shounenslop offerings though.
>>10726382Finally. I hope they give him plenty of accessories like the Fluted Armor knight.>>10726385>>10726433>>10726378Will get.>>10726704I think it looks good surprisingly. One of the very few attempts that actually looks like her.

Calm down pedro, it's just a image.
>>10731915They always skip making the tan Mikus as figma.They make those sexy Mikus nendoroids instead.t. Sepang Miku
Can someone explain what these racing mikus are about? Like is it some kind of irl event or some shit?
>>10732653no, there from an anime
>>10732653Promotion for Goodsmile racing team.
>>10732653Goodsmile has a Racecar team, and they whore out a new Miku for it every year.
>>10732735Based. I should really check them out. I've been craving to root for something for the longest time.
>>10732041More like Thiku.
>>10731907no, it's a 2011 kinder toy, you can probably still find it on ebayI posted the product code in the thread somewhere in a mass reply, just scroll up.
I love blondes so much bros...
>>10726043POs opened again a bit for SHF Yuzuriha, so I ordered that one. If she does get a figma, I'll face that then. This was just 35 bucks.I'll wait a bit for figma Gabimaru to get painted before deciding which to get. It's so weird seeing SHF getting the seasonals now instead of figma and at such a quick pace, too
>>10734010I like to tease Figma for their lack of big titted characters but SHF lacks sexy figures in general. This slut ninja is easily the sexiest figure Shf has ever made.
>>10731305Cool diorama of The Dark Knight Rises screening in Colorado, bro!
>>10734019If you include their "SHF but under a different name" lines, you got classic Bunnygirls too, which figma still hasn't touched.Styles when?
>>10731332Nothing. Nothing at all.
>get maiden in black>has a weird ass skin toneWhat the hell is this
>>10726472Oh shit they painted the kot Where the fuck is my maid squad figma?
>>10733304>2:13what was that all about keeeeeeeek
>>10734019not really, lurk moar.
>>10734087What bodies are those? Also yes we really need a Bunny suit body
>>10734087>Styles when?Not with those boring flat bodies, BA bunnies when?
>>10734505>those granny titsoof shill-kun big oof
I managed to snatch a Shinji + Sakura figmas on Mandarake, I was certain I missed my chance to get them but I randomly checked for stuff yesterday and they were in stock.
>>10734638That Sakura release was bullshit. Too bad fate is dead so no dark Sakura.
>>10734087Hot what are these called?>>10734527I need them to make one of the blonde ones now. Instant preorder.>>10734505Yeah... slut ninjas hotter.
this spooked up on amiamiall it was missing are the instructions and the storage bag
well at least figma is 1 in 2 now
>>10734968Nice offtopic post bro.
figmasisters what happened....
>>10734968>lolipop neck>big head>thick hair almost helmet tier>that White flap below the shit that not only fucks up the asthetic but also makes rhe shirt look like an sweater or somerhing>legs look bad on the prototypeFigma is better at the moment
We starving.... we starving bad
So we get Rimuru but no Milim, what up with that?
>>10735211Milim a shit so who cares?
>>10735164hence the "1" win and 2 losses
>>10734193post pic of weird skin
>>10731605This looks great but the ropes dangling from his belt make me nervous, like they'd snap off. Wonder if/when they'll show off Torrent.
Anyone got the rundown on how good Cliff is? I have one shipped out and on the way but wanted to get another to use as one of his spooky bois.Is Amazon jp also reliable? Bonus for any coomer anons who can tell me if blonde Eimi is worth it.
>>10734010I got Yuzu and Sagiri, not too thrilled by the Sagiri reviews so far, these figures look rushed with lots of QC issues and sloppy details (faces is why I bought Sagi and they're basically a gamble). If they will suck and figmas will be better, which is likely, these will be the first and last SHFs I get.Not sure why GSC has announced Sagiri and Gabimaru but not Yuzuriha
>>10735365I hope they dont fuck up Pepeshas face. Literally the most beautiful SHF ever made.
>>10731171this is why I wanted the black costume
>>10735366I'm not sure anymore. SHF prototypes seem to be entirely different than the final product.
>>10735369Depends on the budget and line Berserk SHF ended up cutting corners in some areas because development+license cost probably made them really expensive. And there's a certain limit Bandai has to keep in mind when determining what they'll price a figureFor example, in order for Griffith to be a complete figure with accessories plus cloth cape plus entire big horse plus special material on the horse's cloak they had to skimp out on matte coating the faceplates and it generally has a cheaper look compared to the prototype. They could've maybe charged more but then an already expensive and high 13-14k release would've been even more and Bandai would risk losing sales which would hurt more than simply saving some cash on not topcoating his face and still having a price-point most fans would be willing to pay Then you have low-cost, beginner friendly SHF and those turn out almost always great because Bandai wants to make a good impression and because the budget for development and license cost are usually better than something like Berserkfigma doesn't usually have problems like these, they price high and rarely skimp out on giving the figure a good matte finish. But it does bring about other issues, like lack of accessories or the recent weird design choices like ab crunches and those Gura elbows. And sometimes they just put out a stinker with sculpt problems like Denji's face Honestly, it boils down to almost a crapshoot whether a figure will be good or bad these days. The only consistent thing is increasing prices
>>10727435Turned out to be a 5k yen kit.16cm tall though, so she'll dommy mommy all over the smaller figma.Only other 1/10s I have are Act Modes, but they all have headgear sculpted in. RIP headswap.
>>10735342I wouldn't worry. It'll be soft gummy plastic. So with this and SHF Malenia, my Vyke won't be left to fester alone much longer. Good thing the line isn't dead despite Vyke's deep discount.
>>10734659>That Sakura release was bullshit.In what sense?>Too bad fate is dead so no dark Sakura.Yeah. the reason I did not buy that Shinji+Sakura package when it released was because I was certain we would be getting Dark Sakura, but it never happened in the end.
convince me that guns are gay and cringe so I don't waste money on tomytecs retarded meme accessories that I'll never play with and disassemble and photographasking for a friend though, what is the the cheapest place to buy them inside the eu? can you buy gun packs with a rack included or are they all separately sold?
>>10735496Sorry anon I love guns too.
>>10735484>In what sense?Forced to pay for 2 figures and Sakura herself had almost no accessories
>>10735496>can you buy gun packs with a rack included or are they all separately sold?Racks and other display sets don't generally come with weapons kits.
>>10735496>EUSee thats the problem. In theory Ami Ami or HobbylinkJapan are as good as prices for Little Armory get but I really dont know with your continents fucked up jewy import customs.The only good gunpack for Figma that isnt Little Armory are the Marauder guns and the Dragon Horse tactical sets. Marauders gun racks are also some of the most affordable out side of doing your own DIY. The scale you see with most other gun packs is often better for Mezco and Gi Joes due to being too large.Bootleg Figmas can be a cheap way to get accessories as the accessories are passable even if the figure itself isnt. You can also get hasbro star wars black series guns in bulk and for cheap and they mostly fit Figma.Other than that most my guns just come from collecting Figma and other lines. Robot Spirit guns, Mcfarlane Halo Reach and of course Shf all fit Figma
Heres a Star Wars gun on a Figma. Sorta looked like a Nambu so Kitakami can commit warcrimes.
>>10735496I buy Little Armory from Hobbysearch. They charge VAT when you buy so you shouldn't get any extra charges when they arrive in your country.
>>10735552Holy shit I forgot that site existed. Thank you anon.
Talking about LittleArmory I'm contemplating about ordering that Chisato weapon, As someone with no model kit building experience. Is it easy to assemble?
>>10735574They dont need glue, just bring good clippers and a sharp hobby knife.
>>10735508I honestly expected the "she got bundled with her rapist" answer..>>10735496Only specialty stores deal with importing those.You shouldn't be worries about importing miniature toy guns anyways though. I had no problems importing the MMZ - which would definitely show on the airport scanners as a gun, but it transforms into a scale figure lol.
What are your favorite figmas with wings?
>>10735822Got my figma rimuru on the way and they come with bat wings but theyre the first winged figma Im getting. Unless you count the nanoha girl with the wings you attach to her shoes, I like how intuitive and straight forward the peg on is for them considering how fragile and finicky they look at a first glance impression
>>10735822of course my girl sakura, even if they aren't posable
>>10735822Akuma Homura wing, It also helps that it can be used on any figma.
>>10735822The only figma with wings I have is Shameimaru Aya. She is an alright figure, and the camera accessory is very nice to have.
>>10734968>no abcrunch>no thighs>those legs>shit facethey didn't even try. Actual garbage
>>10735552wait what. They charge instantly? So the post man won't threaten to kill my cats if I don't pay up some randomly made up bullshit on the spot and unanounced?
>>10735822I've got Sakura and God Warrior and I love them both equally Although I don't actually display God Warrior with his wings because they're fragile and take up a ton of space
>>10735968Well, shit I forgot about Gwendolyn and PixieGwendolyn is the regular version so her wings are more a skirt than anythingAnd Pixie is Pixie, she's cool
>>10735496Swords > Guns
>rape price status alreadywhat the hell?she just came out like two weeks ago
>>10736128Kinda sad I focused on a gun collection than a fantasy one with all the awesome knights Revoltech puts out, the cool Chinese third party stuff, all the cute Figma waifs out there and now fromsoft characters getting so many figures.
>>10735945>no ML abcrunchyeah, how dare they?
>>10736154her porn is nice.
>>10736154Really regret not preordering, hoping she gets a rerelease
>>10736154Sold for half on manda.Gotta hate the Limited Sale figma shtick of this era.
>>10736360Think there have been more AmiAmi/GSC Limited releases in the past two years than limited in general before it.
Did anyone order Power? Torn between which one to get...
>>10736556I might get her soon for headswaps and coomer poses. Kinda hoping her price goes down a bit.
>>10736556Yes one anon did.
>>10731585>was trying to look for dio from jojo in the photo
>>10736154kokkoro looking at her aftermarket price>>10736176>>10736221glad I PO'd her instead of waiting for bin prices like I did with pecorine and karyl goddamn>>10736360someone at amiami must really hold cunny on a pedestal if mandarake's selling her at half their price lol
News of Kazusa?
How’s Shirogane Noel? Heard she breaks easily.
>>10737310Says who? She's probably one of the more solid releases.
>>10737431>>10737435>gappy pussyHmmmmmLet's see the ass though, hopefully it's not as bad as Chiaki
Ho ho, I got the last Fluted Knight from HLJ I don't particularly like demon souls but that is one pretty figure, undecided if I'll go for the blind bitch.
>>10737572I know it looks bad, but this area is doing strange things to me for some reason.
I haven't paid any attention to figma for a while and holy shit have they gotten expensive.
>>10737936Yeah even with the conversion rate in our favour I'm paying more for figma now than when the yen was strongAnd shipping's a nightmare too because lots of companies are still clinging to Covid prices and passing freighter cost increases onto usThen VAT and customs for people in Europe... it's getting seriously out of hand. Harder and harder to justify dropping so much cash on figures that are coming with less and less stuff and more QC issues Not just figma, either, lots of brands are going this way. Sad to see
>>10737952And my response to it has been that I've been buying more model kits than impulse-buying figma designs. Though some companies tend to believe they should price them like fully assembled figs anyways...
>>10737435Shes so breedable
>labrys little nub foot broke off>look to see what happened>this teeny tiny barely 3mm thick joint is cast in clear plastic1000 fold nippon engineering
>>10737985It annoys me so much that morons think translucent plastic is fine for any integral parts of a figure.
>>10735362Mine is a little loose on the skeleton neck but other than that he's a fantastic figure, if you liked Death stranding you'll love it.>Is Amazon jp also reliable?Completely, just make sure it's shipped by amazon so you don't have any problem with the shipping or customs.
