What's your collection look like? Mine is really nothing to write home about. I literally only have 3 commercial plush
>>8248640You heisted my picture! Time to start watermarking them.>>8248648>>8248656That's one of my gondolas. Actually the OG gondola. Totally custom, yeah. This is what they look like now.
>>8248666Thank you, Satan. Mine are more expensive, but look better.
>>8248688sorry fren, didnt mean to steal any pictures. Great work btw.heres one my my favorite frens, his name is Mort.
>>8248706It's okay fren. I knew when I posted it that it'd make the rounds. And thanks. I'm pretty proud of them.
>>8248640Any good plushies based on star wars?
this is my fren diglett! he is berry good fren !
i have this really cool santa penguin plush, he needs a name though.
>>8248717There's a TON of them. Anything before the era of funko is top tier.
>>8248688The keychain is nice, I'd buy one
>>8248729looks like an engelbert
>>8248913I started making the little ones out of felt for Christmas ornaments. The guy who has this keychain one says it's not holding up too well. Too much abrasion, so it's pilling really badly. Might try some in Minky.
>>8248716I really like that Tank plush
>>8249050Thanks. I've made a handful of them. It's pretty complicated to joint the tracks to the body so they don't splay out.
>>8249070Looks more like a Tetrarch.
>>8249070Really nice and cute Tanks Good Job!!Have you made any other type of tank?
>>8249115Yeah, I can see that. Straight lines and sharp angles are hard with stuffed things.
>>8249123No, but I get requests for German ones occasionally.
>>8248687is that one of the emily strange kitties. wow blast from the past.
Most of my dolls are packed away but here's the ones that aren't. I like making these birds even though they take forever
>>8249359that yoshi looks cool, whered you get him fren?
>>8249388The nintendo store in NYC, they have yoshi in pretty much every color :)
>>8249404They didn't re-open yet, did they? I love checking out whats new there every once in awhile.
>>8249410Not sure, last I heard it got destroyed during the riots so probably not
>>8249404>they have yoshi in pretty much every color :)please tell me they have a purple yoshi!
>>8249428They had a whole stand like this just for yoshis I would have brought the others but I had spent more than enough that trip haha
>>8248688...I want one
>>8249462>purple yoshiok i'm getting one for sure.
>>8249467A gondola? Or a super special 4chan gondola?
>>8249496please let me buy a gandola from you, i want a big size one, i would be willing to pay 80$ or less.
>>8249499I have set prices for my plushes. The large 24" plush gondolas are $90, plus shipping. The smaller 18" ones are $70, plus shipping. So with your budget, you could probably get one of the 18" ones.
>>8249321yep! it's Nee Chee. 'ages 6-6feet under' on the tag so edgy. I got it from a friend in highschool.
>>8249531eh, i'll just get a large, 90$ isnt bad at all really for a jumbo gandola fren.
>>8250133You can email me for more info and my policy copy pasta. I won't be taking on commissions until late July-early August, but I could make you one then.
>>8249417I can't believe Mario is dead
>>8250290It's not the jump that gets you. It's the sudden stop at the bottom when you miss. RIP
This is why I don't like coming to /toy/. I end up spending money. I've already got two cute moths on preorder thanks to some fucker in the other thread.
>>8249468The brand is Sanei/Little Buddy, you can find them online if it helps!
>>8250566thanks anon, i managed to track down a purple one for a good price, will update thread with pictures once he arives!
Figured out the rest of the hand armature, now I gotta make 5 more fingers. I know it looks like there's 1 joint too many, the extra one's just for metacarpal rotation. >>8248687I'm diggin the one in the yellow bunny hood>>8249070Fuck these are cute. Do you have to ladder stitch the tracks in place or something?>>8252774Damn anon, that's still impressive. What kind of support is in the heel?
>>8252893That looks really good, I think. Can't wait to see the full assembly. As for the tanks, it's easy to stitch the tracks down. It's joining each assembled track unit to the body. Have to go through a narrow slot cut in the body lower side to stitch it, then it's stuffed, and the slot is closed, to then stuff the body. You can see the long narrow slot in the piece here, to the right of the assembled top. Haven't cut it open yet, or joined the tracks in. Lots of fiddly small tight corner work, and hand-stitching. End result looks good and stands without splaying, but getting there is a PITA. Kitty's boot support is a non-woven stiff interfacing most commonly used to line the bottoms of purses. It's formable and stitchable. That's the outer structure, and inside that is reinforced piece of buckram (like for making hats) with a length of boning that goes up into the boot body. Very strong, very stable. All that is covered with Minky. Doesn't allow for ankle movement, but makes it easy to balance when posing, and she can stand upright.
I just finished this mothman today! This was my first time making a plush. and it turned out pretty good. I definitely need to sew the eyes and fluff on before the rest of him, next time I'll do it right.
>>8253363Those antennae are wonderful! Felt is so awesome for fine detail like that. And yeah, lot easier to apply the eyes first. Not to worry--there's a learning curve, but it isn't steep. Easiest order to do things--finish the small things first--arms, legs, wings, eyes, etc., then any darts or surface embroidery on the main body, then join the bits to the main body parts, then join the main body parts together.
>>8253363Aaaaa so cute! My only problem with felt is it attracts cat fur like no one's business hahah! I love this smol mothman so much! I really like the stitching on the legs!
I have a shitton of plushies that I keep in my room, had some of them for years. Lately, I've developed a weird cough and I'm afraid it might be because of them. Right now I'm keeping them in front of my window trying to somewhat air them out and remove some of the dust. Anything else I could do?
>>8250411Those are different, where're they from?>>8252893What happened to the 3D-printed hands?>>8252987ur hardXcoreAlso what got you into making tanks?>>8253363Excellent! Love the design, great use of fur, and I, too, like the antennae.>>8255286I'm no expert, but I'd imagine anything in the plushes got there from somewhere else, and thus is the cough is recent I might think something's gotten into your walls, your basement, etc. Have you moved recently? It could be that there's something nearby to which you're allergic.Either way, if their tags are still intact, your plushes should have washing instructions on them.
Whew, finally done. Then I had to take it all apart for degreasing and final assembly. Waiting for the Locktite to cure now. >>8252987Thanks!There's something really cartoonish about the image of a deflated, unstuffed tank. What do you use to strengthen the barrel? Daaang, it must have taken so much trial and error to arrive at that method.>>8253363Omg the antennas are so cute. That's a really impressive first try>>82555673D printer friend got swamped with IRL stuff + I wasn't happy with how fragile the fingers were at such a small scale. Fortunately I figured out a much easier way to make metal finger joints than my original method.
>>8255567I was going to make a jillion bucks selling tanks to the War Thunder and World of Tanks crowd. Except it took so much work to make just a Sherman that I gave up after that. I might go back to it at some point.>>8255859The barrel has buckram and interfacing inside, and a little trick to it that I'm keeping to myself.
I made a plush of one of my favorite villagers. Making them small is pretty difficult.
>>8256976that plush looks official, damn fine work anon! keep it up. Heres one of my plush frens, his name is Banana!
>>8256983Aren’t those dogs toys anon?
>>8257021yes, but he is a good fren of mine !
>>8256976I hate working small. The less hand sewing I have to do, the better I like it. This is really cute. Nice job!
Happy Independence Day, American senpai! Be careful with things that go "BOOM!"
>>8258226FUCK this is based. The bomb suit Gondola is bretty cool
>>8260306delete this before you get banned, (you did a great job btw)
>>8260325Let's say it's in the spirit of /mlpol/ from the April Fools board mergers a few years back, eh? (thanks, btw)
I bought one of theseI think it's funny
>>8260944Who's cumming on one first
>>8260954Unironically one of the first things I thought too, but it won't be me
Posable fingers work great, need to fix the wrist placement next. >>8256976That's fucking adorable, does it have wire inside? >>8260306Daaang, how hard was it to piece that mane?
>>8261358That looks amazing! I'm impressed, but given all the work you've done, I'm not surprised. Keep it up.The mane wasn't hard. Lots of opposing curves so fiddly, but not hard.
>>8261358Thank you for sharing your progress. Even if it came out shitty, it would have been fascinating but its looking really good.
Awww, my pone got axed.
>>8263183Yeah, I know. But it was a PLUSH! Lmao!
>>8263221Rules are rules.
>>8253363>>8254084>>8254605>>8255567>>8255859Thanks guys!>>8257050I've seen some toys that are way too cute for a dog to rip up. Banana is wonderful anon!
Gonna make the legs a teeny bit longer, right now Mewtwo's a fraction of an inch too short>>8261395>>8261475aw thanks guys>The mane wasn't hard. Lots of opposing curves so fiddly, but not hard.Did you sew the mane by hand? I don't understand how people can do curves like that on a machine
>>8265392Wow! That's just incredible! The final form is going to be mind-blowing.
>>8265392No, the mane was all done by machine. One stripe at a time and a butt load of pins to keep everything from shifting.
Will I ever manage to find one of these things?
>>8260427So this is selfmade, or acquireable somewhere?
>>8248687The black and red cat is adorable!
>>8271102I made that for one of my kids, but there's a vendor here: https://www.anna-fortune.com/product-category/countryballs/
this is my dino fren, Mort!
>>8250257why is she so angery :O
this thread is comfy, i love you /toy/ youre all my frens! (no homo lol)
I need a new picture. I have no idea how to even display these. Does anyone have any ideas?
>>8272677Are you able to get a shelf of some sort like this one? I personally have my plushes displayed in a glass cabinet but they can be a little pricey.
>>8248640my mum made me a gondola, quite like him.
>rare plush I’ve never seen for sale before pops up on auction>little crusty looking and no hang tag but decide to bid anyway>me and one other dude end up in a bidding war for it that lasts for about 10 minutes >once it gets to $90 CAD I give up and he wins>5 months later another one that has the tag shows up for auction in a lot with several other plushes>know I won’t win but put in a sniping bid anyway for the starting price which was like $40>no one else bids and I win This was the only vindication I’ve ever experienced in my years of plush collecting. The only problem now is that I have quite a few old Godzilla and Ultraman plushes I don’t really have room for. I’m too nervous to sell online and I know if I give them to my niece and nephew they won’t be taken care of.
>>8275780>I’m too nervous to sell onlineWhy, just not in the mood to deal with it?
>>8275794That and I’ve never actually mailed anything before so I’m scared of messing it up. I also read all the horror stories from sellers in the eBay threads.
>>8253363Nice job. I just entered the thread to look for plush of things that shouldn't look cute.
>>8275780that rodan plush is awesome, thanks for sharing fren!
Current commission is a couple of camel spiders. I love their beady little eyes.
>>8275857Oh thank you! I just need two more to collect and then I’ll have every Rodan plush ever made. (Minus prototypes)>>8276050You’re very talented!
>>8275809Could you post the godzilla plushies? I might get one for a buddy
>>8276137Here’s the auction pic of the lot I won. If you’re looking for any Godzilla plush though, I suggest browsing on yahoo japan auctions or mercari japan as they’re generally pretty cheap.https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/search?p=ゴジラ+ぬいぐるみ&va=ゴジラ+ぬいぐるみ&exflg=1&b=1&n=50
My friend is looking for a specific plush but doesn't know the name. Can anyone tell me what this is?
>>8276413Looks like it's a Figi plush, maybe titled "My Prince" (Fat frog). I don't know if the company is still in business though. Their plushes often had a huge fat body, small head, and long legs. Pic is tag from a fat black and white cat by them. FAO Schwartz carried some of the Figi line, but not sure about the frog prince.
>>8276166do you have a jet jaguar plush?
this thread is so comfy, thanks frens.
>>8276685No, that line is very pricey now. Set up an alert on eBay and wait for one to pop up if you’re desperate for it.
>>8277296i wasnt asking if you had one to sell, if thats what you thought. I managed to get jet and gabera in 2016.
>>8278057Oh, I’m sorry! I thought you were looking for one. But yeah, the Toyvault plushes are really nice. I’m aiming to have the complete set one day and have 9 so far.
>>8278106>and have 9 so far.nice, which ones? if you dont mine me asking
>>8278110Here’s my checklist. They’re currently in my basement crawl space right now so I can’t take any pics.
>>8278122whoah they mada a hedora and megalon? and a destorya? fucking based.
>>8278125those peep plushies are great, do you have a picture of the birthday cake peep?
>>8276166I know precious little about Godzilla or Japanese plushies, but I like the look of that chunky Mechagodzilla, how tall is it? Do you have other info about these guys, like how old they are? I'm assuming that most of them are from separate lines?
>>8278141thats such a cute plush fren, thanks for sharing anon! i love your collection.
>>8278708the big godzilla is 21 inches tall.
>>8278708He’s about 9 inches tall. I haven’t checked all of them but so far they’re from Bandai made in 1993.
>>8278805Well I know you're nervous about selling online, but if you want to avoid eBay I'd buy him if you're selling. His dumb face is cute and I like his stubby little arms. Though I don't know if shipping to the US would be too much of a hassle for you.
>>8278873Thank you very much for the offer but I’m sorry to say that he stole my heart too. I intended from the beginning to keep the dancing Godzilla, the two Rodans, Mecha G and Mothra. It’s just the others I’m unsure what to do with.
I hope bears are still okay here. My partner bought my second bear yesterday as an early birthday gift!>mfw the bitch says "And that's $400!" in the same moment that she is shoving him face-first into a rough canvas bag.>His arm was yanked outwards against the joint.>Absolutely f r o t h i n g.
>>8281807Teddy bears are classic. But are you ok, anon?
In the home stretch on the pair of camel spider plush commissions. Should have all of the legs in place by Friday. Then just need to stuff and attach the heads.
>>8283456i hate spiders, but objecitvley speaking, this looks very well made. Good work.
>>8283456>>8283477Yes, looking at this gives me the heebie jeebies. But it looks very well made, so nice job!
>>8283477>>8283485Here's the original one. I'm moving the legs closer together so it looks more realistic.
