why does ss dark kiva cost less than grand zi-o despite coming with more accessories and better paint
>>8905149i'm sorry decade, please forgive ):
>>8905148No chance to make-up the cost of the mold with another re-release since Dark Kiva and Emperor Kiva are 90% the same
>>8905148But he doesn't, Dark Kiva goes for 8,800 yen, Grand Zi-O goes for 8,580 yen.
>>8905148Do you just not know numbers or something?
I'm glad I just managed to snatch a SH FangJoker in buyeeHope the new W anime spawns the missing Xtreme and Accel Trial forms
>>8905512small asian brain, preasu understand
Why is ordering from SHFUpgrade's online shop such a fucking headache? Why do I need to make a facebook account just so I can order the Muteki Hair parts and some fucking stickers? Does their site not properly register orders?
>>8905549just buy it from tokucollectibles
>>8905590And pay even more. Yes of course
>>8906549>>8906554My poor wallet...
>>8906554>That purpleWho the fuck?
>>8906661Isn't it the guy from the final episode?
>>8906679Nah Jam is like black and pink
>>8906679its the chick from Bravo Gaiden
>>8906554I could see Gaim also getting the Gaim Yami pair. The rest of the apples, maybe himawari, and maybe Maja could go in Helheim. Sid's S lockseed could go in Yggdrasil. Yggdrasil will probably also get the Bujin Gaim faceplate if Saver is there for blood orange.Where's my man Fifteen's lockseed gonna go?
>>8906549So is it true that Gaim's Kachidoki lockseed has paint-chipping on more than just a couple cases? If so, how is that likely to be fixed for Zangetsu Kachidoki lock?
Even though the movie's been pushed back to who knows when, it looks like all the Shinman merch is still coming out when it's supposed to?
>>8905549That’s not SHF Upgrade’s fault really. Boutir (or whatever that site’s name is) is just one of the more prevalent and easy to set up shops where he is. It does suck if you don’t have Facebook tho.
what's this from?
>>8905549currently on week six of waiting for an order i made with them to arrive. took four weeks and several facebook messages to even get the thing shipped out, now it's been in customs for over two weeks. they've got cool shit but this is fucking ridiculous
>>8906554>Remember those DX lockseeds you bought 7 years ago then threw in a drawer? well now you can buy them all over again and at a premium price point too
>>8906848Why wouldn't it?
>>8906854The Zangetsu stageshow. There were a bunch of black "proto" Riders he had to fight.
>>8906549>>8906554This just feels like the worst CSM Release so farBig QC issues already, The DX look better and they're all split up in everythingJust feels shitty>>8906737Here >>8896303
>>8906554those fruit riders were total ass
>>8906554>2 full sets of literal whos I'm a Gaimfag but even i feel like that's kind of a hard sell
>>8906970>Warren Statesman, Ph.D in Sengoku, Doctor of Thuganomics>a literal whoNigga.
>>8907018>boring ass sengoku driver version instead of lemon and dragon energy anon pls
>>8906861Damn that sucksAre they normally like that though? or can I assume that the delays are from 'rona?
>>8906549>>8906554>>8906854>>8906970>Jerk themselves off about the Genesis Core being available>Still not Energy Locks to do Jinba
Any RAH or project BM collectors here? I wanna get into the 1/6 game, was wondering if anyone one had any pointers or wisdom to bestow about doll collecting.
>>8906554i want shf ringo, not lockseed, wtf is wrong with you jew-dai...
>>8907712>TFW you get a repaint SHF of a form that barely lasted 2 minutes from a cheaply made TTFC instead of the V-Cinema forms that were pretty cool.It's not fair! I wanted Ringo Baron and Dragon Fruit Duke!
>>8907140i'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt but it seems really coincidental that they shipped out my order the day after i messaged them because "one of the items had just come back in stock" even though it was listed as in stock
>>8907730 Actually really like Gridon's Lychee Arms though.
>>8906945https://toy.bandai.co.jp/series/rider/topics/detail/2014/?t=blog>First of all, regarding the delivered battle pole driver, the lock seed that comes with the "CSM battle pole driver" has been confirmed to have some paint quality defects in some of the mass-produced products.>We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers who have included this matter or other defective products.>If you find any defects in your product, please contact the "Bandai Customer Service Center" listed on the product package .>For customers who have already contacted the consultation center regarding paint quality, we will continue to provide information from today onwards. >I kindly thank you.Okay, so they know they fucked up and will probably do replacements. Pain in the ass for anyone that imported early, but anyone buying the US release can run support through Bluefin.
>>8907846I think you mean Ornac, buddy.
>>8907808Guess i'll see if i can get into contact with tokucollectibles and ask if they're getting a restock of the muteki stuff. Going through the Boutir site and dealing with SHFUpgrade seems like a big headache.
>>8908364I literally just order on site and he shipsHow are you guys having issues?
>>8907688I have a few RAH (Gaim, TheBee 2.0 and Gokai Red) and they're not worth the money IMO
>>8908064I think you mean Gri'in, as Japanime calls it
>>8908657Tokucollectibles and SHFUpgrade's Boutir site are two completely different things. The shit I want is out of stock on toku anyway so it doesn't fucking matter.
Been out of the loop, is SIC dead?
>>8909078Cool, but wasn't this announced ages ago with that poll? It was Fourze, Ryuki and someome else?did it end up just being "which should we release first?"
>>8909522Kuuga and ghost
>>8909522Faiz is their most recent release, barring the event exclusive Fourze.
>>8909525God damn, is that the third Kuuga? At least this ones more monsterous than the last but I still don't think any of them have nailed it yet
Think I'm gonna go back and pay latetax on the Garo releases. Any anons have them? How are they?
https://www.instagram.com/p/CNS5UDVloQ2/Why does the english tamashii instagram have pictures for Grand Zi O if you can't even get it without a proxy or Tokucollectibles?
Nabbed an unopened SHF SS Kamen Rider Joker off of Manda last night. The late tax was bad, $140, but I dig the design too much.
>>8909787I too know the pain of SS late tax, but it was worth it.
>>8909834Yeah this one stung quite a bit more than Skull. Was able to get an unopened Skull from a guy in Japan for just over 95 bucks last year. I hope with the anime announcement we get Eternal and CycloneJoker re-releases.
>>8909787my SS FangJoker is just on its way, ts the only one I'm missing since I bought CJ, Joker, Eternal, Skull and Accel back then when they were originally released
>>8909893Yeah I definitely regret sleeping on Karate Bugmen for as long as I did. Always thought their designs were cool but did not want to collect something I knew nothing about. Fast forward to now and I'm kicking myself for not getting on the SS releases sooner.
>>8909893right now I'm dusting my collection and well, the old Figuarts are not that bad, I mean, this Accel looked great back then, but the SS renewals are really on another fucking level
>>8909787Should have wait for the reissue with futo tantei
>>8910098they better finally make that SS Accel Trial and CJX
Any recommendations for stands for Shodo Kamen Rider figures? The foot things they come with suck and mine keep falling over all the time. Plus I’m looking for stands with arms for a little more dynamic posing.
>>8910141i think i have autism, i'm looking at this listing and i can't tell if "18pack" means you get 18 individual stands and arms or if some of the 18 is stands and arms and some is the wall pieces
>>8910153you are getting these 3 kinds, but not sure if its distributed evenly.
>>8910171Absolutely perfect, thank you Anon
>>8910248This was meant to go here>>8910141I’m retarded
>>8910137>>8910248There's a clear one too, but I prefer the black one.https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=GOODS-00347943
>>8910153There are shops selling them per piece and in set of 3.https://search.rakuten.co.jp/search/mall/bs-4i4k000qp3/?f=0&sid=243227
Is the CSM 1.5 W Driver worth the 200 dollarydoos? From what I gather it's light on CSM like features and is basically a glorified DX?
>>8910547Nicer sounds, accurate decals, the thing actually pops off it's buckles so you can show accurate make a suitcase for it
>>8910081>Yeah I definitely regret sleeping on Karate Bugmen for as long as I did. Always thought their designs were cool but did not want to collect something I knew nothing about. Fast forward to now and I'm kicking myself for not getting on the SS releases sooner.I'd known about them for years, but having never watched an episode of Kamen Rider I largely ignored them. All changed when I tuned into Zero-One.
So no SS Ichigo rerelease?
>>8910994shin ichigo soon
>>8910994shin ichigo with hard plastic cloth soon
SHF Gamma Future
Why are toku toys so expensive? do they even get reprints?
>>8912641Their quality compared to hasbro is much better. Better quality plasicts, better prints, crisp molding, also the import price.
>>8912631>no silver hands for Alpha Edge to use the swordI really don't want the new Juggler since I have the old one but I need those fucking hands he comes with
>>8910547I just pulled the trigger earlier today and they already made a label. I had the Amazonz driver and I liked the quality on that a lot, nice bit of die cast on the handle.
>>8912631I just want Z Oriiginal, what the fuck is taking Bandai so long
>>8913024Dragonic looks so good. But why the fuck dont Grand got the decal?
http://bandaihobby.hatenablog.com/entry/2021/04/08/100000man what were they thinking
>>8913192man fuck that, reissue the SS CJ figuarts for fuck's sake, that model kit is fucking ass
>See SHF SS New Ichigo pop up on Manda last night, unopened package damaged.>Add to cart, check out>Hope I beat someone to it>"We regret to inform you the item you wanted is sold out, you order has been canceled. Sorry for the inconvenience. "Damn it
>>8913217you're too slow
>>8913206That was the MG too. The FRS is way better because of Joker Extreme and easier to change Half Body parts.
>>8913206With the anime coming there's a better possibility than others for a rerelease.
>>8913293Even compared to the older Figuarts these don't look that great. Back in my schooling days an upper classman once tried convincing me that MGF was the way to go since they "scanned the actors to get true proportions." Next level full of shit.Considering the old MGFR is filled with gates up the ass that aren't remotely hidden and needs fucking screws for the frame, this artisan line will probably die before it even leaves the ground.Nice shading Bandai, but do you think that gatemarks aren't real or what?
>>8913192BANDAI YESSSSSi can't wait for all the tokufatsus to post this without nub mark cleanup
Used FangJoker SS on Manda rn, 12k yen.
>>8913765And it's gone
>>8913696Even their blog sample photos have nub heaven going on with the Joker side. This is gonna be a disaster.
>>8913696lmao look at all those nubs in the legs
>>8913696JUSTREISSUETHE FUCKING SEIHOUSTOP BEING STINGY BANDAI, WHY WOULD YOU GO THROUGH ALL THIS TROUBLE TO DESIGN AND RELEASE SOMETHING ONLY MODEL KIT SECONDARIES WILL BUY? THEY'LL JUST RUIN IT AND GO POST IT TO THEIR TWITTER ACCOUNTS WITH NUB MARKS, MISPLACED STICKERS, AND SHITTY POSING
>>8913696wave of retards who spend master grade money just to break the W fin incoming
>>8912641You mean retail or aftermarket?
>>8913192>reissue old 4k yen model kit>sell it for 11kThat's what they were thinking.
Nin-Nin randomly sent me Cross-Z Evol that I didn’t order.
>>8914131Give you $50 for it.
>>8914131enjoy him then lol, that's a great gift
>>8912631>p-banfuck this gay earth
>>8914225Do you really expect general release for a secondary form?Even base Z will probably be p-bandai.
>>8913696Even the knee and bicep shapes are fucked up. Wtf kind of artisan is this
Why doesn't Tamashii reissue SHFSS?
>>8914571They do, just rarely.
>>8914571Capitalizing on FOMO.
>>8914571because despite popular belief bandai loves money but hates committing to the release of a single product which is why they shell out hundreds of items from different lines each year and reissue none of them just so they can say they made it, and rider fans are left to eat the scraps dropped by our plastic creating masters
>>8914606this, toku stuff isn't even a twinkle in bandais eye when they can just release shit nobody asked for like demon slayer statues
>>8914612Lol you know demon slayer statues outsell our precious high end articulated figures 10 to 1 right? Join those huge Facebook statue groups, they all talk about how ugly joints are. We are niche, man
Man Mercari can be amazing sometimes.
>>8915017That's a pretty great set.The Nigo is a redeco of Old 1 but the head sculpt is unique to it, completely different from the Old1/Sakurajima1 head and the PB design. Very useful for head swapping and whatnot.
>>8915448That's interesting I don't own any of the old Rider 1/2 figures so this is new to me.
>Amazon has SHF Shinman on preorder for $37 while everywhere else still has him at $50-55I don't know if I should be suspicious of Amazon or if everyone else is just overcharging.
>>8915662Thank you sir
>>8915662amazon has a higher risk of telling you to go pound sand and just cancelling your order due to no stock. Happened to me when I preordered the decade model kit and sword daiza
>>8915662Probably just going through Bluefin, is my guess
what's the best place to try to get old rider SS figuarts? I want to complete my W collection and Mandarake rarely gets new shit, then you go to buyee and holy fuck, the prices are way over the top
>>8915951by not missing the preorder
https://p-bandai.com/us/item/N2567437001001How is this line? Normally I'm a Figuarts guy, but these look neat.
>>8916187Do you like sticker hell? if not then no
>>8916193I mean, with some tweezers I don't think I'd have too much trouble.
>>8916187>So-do>Premium Bandai USWhat fucking sorcery...?
>>8915951Generally the prices you see on Manda would be what they go for in the market, so if you see it for a similar price on Buyee and really want it, I'd say just go for it.No real way of getting around the latecomer tax aside from hoping for a re-release, sadly.
is that ryuki figure-rise gonna be worth getting if one has never gotten a model kit before?
>>8916418I'd say practice your skills on a cheap kit first. Don't wanna fuck up the Tatakae rider after all. That or grab a knife and some nippers and make your first try and good try. Cut those nubs with a knife.
>>8916418yea if you are fine with stickers, assembling them is very easy.
>>8916426any suggestions on something cheaper? also i guess on the tools you need cause i don't have those
Anyone with King Joe Storage Custom not being able to lock the LR44 inside him?
>>8916473Google the 30 minute missions kits or the HGAC Leo, they'll be pretty good practice. In terms of tools, Bandai sells their own brand of nippers, but I always just find myself going to the hardware store for a pair. X-acto knife you'll need too. You won't need sandpaper unless you're painting.
>>8916590>You won't need sandpaperWrong
>>8916602>Unless you're painting. Add that in there. Unless you have a lot of free time and the block/sponge sand paper, you're good to go with just a nipper and a knife.
>>8916606It seriously doesn’t take much time to do 400 to 1500. Shit, sanding is like the fundamental of building model kits why skip it?
>>8916590noted, thanks a bunch.
saw an SHFSS Black preorder pop up on nin nin game and grabbed it. first SHFSS, what am I in for
>>8916730He's gonna extort you lol
>>8916758Kek>>8916730A figure that looks good, but may not have the range of motion you'd like, or are accustomed to. I'm watching Black right now, pretty good stuff.
What the fuck happened with Gamma Future?
>>8914012You say that but I broke my SHFSS W's fin...
>>8918863I think the amount of W's with broken fins is more than those without at this point. Wish SHFUpgrade or whatever would make replacements for him instead of just FangJoker
>>8918863After I broke the (original) Joker, I made sure SHFSS CJ was ALWAYS on a stand. Alternatively something like a kneeling pose that's impossible for him to topple over
>>8918863there's no way this kit won't require anyone who builds it to sharpen the fin/remove safety nubs, they're going to break en masse due to user error
>browsing HLJ, not really looking for anything in particular just seeing what's there>backordered>backordered>discontinued>out of stock>discontinued>backordered>order stopGoddamn. Is this normal for them?
Where is he, Bandai?
>>8920099I have a feeling him or Zero Two will be a Tamashi fest exclusiveOr Primitive Dragon
>>8920125Fest exclusives are mostly black repaints, right? So yeah, it's either him or Primitive Dragon, and I'm thinking it's the latter what with the recent trend of transition forms being the fest exclusive. Hazard and Shining Hopper for example.
>>8916820I thought SHFSS was supposed to be the best in terms of engineering and articulation?
>>8920202No? It's supposed to be the best in terms of suit accuracy and engineering. Articulation comes second since it has the "true bone carving" skeleton in mind.
I'm the newbie anon from a few threads ago. After a bit of ebay scrounging, managed to get some good deals on some converge figures, even got my favorite OOOs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IhX9wuFdb07600 yen for fancy rider cards
>>8920449It's 330 yen in the ad tho
>>8920470https://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000156616/I dont see where we can buy a single card
>>8920489Oh. I see what's going on here. Yeah, only nips can buy singles...
>>8920247Why’s anyone here act like they’re better than regular figuarts then, if regular figuarts doesn’t have bunk articulation?
>>8920628Sculpt and paint are that much better.
>>8920628You tell me.
>>8920628Because... How else am I gonna get updated SHFs of older riders?
>>8920670Too bad Block's actor is such a cunt
>>8920628Cause they only started using same base body for regular shf after exaid
>>8920737After Drive, actually. Starting with Ghost. Only that it wasn't noticeable because it was being hidden by the jacket.
>>8917525Motherfucker. My order got cancelled. Hope they do a second window.
>>8919412Rider kits don't have safety flags/safety nubs on the antennae.They will still most likely break because people ham hand kits often and an old MG figurerise like this that runs screws in the frame will be problematic.
>>8920628Because they look far better and the loss of articulation is minor. Any Figuart from pre-2011 is going to look like basically dogshit because the first one to really look anywhere near decent is New 1. That's when Figuarts started really thinking about not having pinheads, though bad head sculpts, weird sculpts, and bad designs in general continued until around Drive.Most Showa Riders are still acceptable in the older format because 1) chances of them getting a SS is rare as fuck if you ain't tied to 1971 and if you ain't tied to either BLACK show.2) The proportions match how they look in Spirits, which is basically the only reason modern people care about Showa these days.3) Bandai reissued 2, X, Skyrider, and Super-1 with very minimal changes alongside their bikes. Rider 2 had a new helmet to match his episode 30-movie 2 suit, X had a more drab color to match his late show suit, Sky and Super-1 had new heads with Super-1 in particular having a reworked neck to let him look up better. None of the figures received enough changes to fundamentally change how they look and this is long after SS started with Kabuto and Hibiki, so its very possible that Bandai thinks how they look now is still acceptable for a good half decade more.
>1/12 Sentai figs finally back!>It's Evolution ToyTalk about monkey's paw.

finally got the gashapon gear
>>8921366and I also bought the replacement memoriesit comes with 2 sheets of stickers
>>8920721Hm? Always seemed like an okay guy to me. Owns a steakhouse now doesn't he?
>>8921471Ah, I see you aren't aware of developments.\https://lovetokusatsu.com/2021/04/06/tetsuo-kurata-makes-controversial-remarks-regarding-his-kamen-rider-black-role-on-kamen-rider-series-50th-anniversary/https://lovetokusatsu.com/2021/03/07/more-allegations-come-forward-regarding-kamen-rider-blacks-tetsuo-kurata/
>>8921150Fuck me what the fuck
How much of an improvement is the SS Tajador over the basic Tajador? I know SS are great, but looking at comparisons, Tajador doesn't seem as much of an improvement as some others. I have a regular Taj whose hip joint is a bit loose, and one side of its wings will fall down at the slightest bump.
>>8921624>More accessories>Better Paint>More accurate sculptThere really isn't a reason to own a SHF that came out before 2015. SS TaJaDor is amazing.
>>8921624Quite a big one. The black plastic tended to show through the paint of the old figures too.
>>8921630>>8921636Thanks. I'll continue staring at the Tajador on BBTS and probably continue to waffle on its price until it's gone and regret missing my chance.
>>8920953Thanks anon, this was a helpful answer. I understand now
>>8921650>BBTSGo somewhere that isn't a fucking scam site
>>8921736Only place that still has it in stock. Everywhere else it's going for SHFSS aftermarket prices.
Anons that use acrylic risers, do you have any recommendations? Or any alternatives?
>>8921760This is what I use for most of my displays, they do a pretty good job but the 3" one is a bit limited
>>8921760A little expensive, but I like Hobby Base's modular ones.
>>8921765>>8921797I'll look into both. Have to do something to better utilize space in my cabinets. Thanks for the information!
>>8921650BBTS is actually solid for it.They want $75He retailed higher >>8921736BBTS is usually shit on Import Figs yea but sometimes they're the best spot
>>8921150Imagine Sentai figuarts on the new Base Body Godddddd
I kinda hate HLJ sometimes. Zenkaiger has been out for three weeks and it is airing all year. How the fuck is the changer "Discontinued"?
>>8921150>Evolution ToyWhat's that?
is it true all the SS Figuarst Zi-O Decade end up having their arms broken? it is the only one you can see for less than 8k yen
>>8922196Discountined is just "sold out and we don't know when restock is" from HLJ
>>8922196HLJ doesn't really tend to stock the gimmick toys
What, if any, are the differences between DX gears and the SG series gears? Are the SG Gears DX gears?
>>8922215afaik the only "DX" gears are the ones that comes with the gun and belt thing and the only difference is the plastic?
>>8922324>the plasticHow so?Quality, color, something else?
>>8922198The NECA of the JP market.Their main selling point is they make shit for niche ips like Inazuman or Red Man, like NECA. Unlike NECA their sculpts get outclassed by 10 year old Ultra Acts, their engineering is 2010 SHF level, and their prices are SS tier for nowhere near the quality or cost performance.For your own good look up the Ultra Act Gridman versus the Evolution Toy Gridman and you'll see what a shit show their products are.
>>8922331I don't have them to compare, but I believe the DX plastic is a more pearlescent gold, while the others are a more bland "butterscotch" kind of gold.
>>8922199Neo Decade and Diend seem to suffer from some plastic manufacturing mistakes where the elbows crack on their own, akin to how the hips of some older SHFs like Skyrider tend to crack due to bad plastic mix ratios, I assume.I've seen it more on Diend than Decade, but Bandai did offer extended warranty through their own CS department for about a year after Diend came out. Nothing useful for the overseas buyer though.
>>8921150Those proportions are certainly something.
>>8921150I definitely know that feel. Bandai killing the Figuarts Metalder hurts me still
>>8921650thanks anon for the heads up for a cheaper price I will enjoy my shss tajador for the both of us
>>8922733careful with the taka launcher on his arm, the ball joint connecting it to his wrist can easily break with too much pressure
Gang’s all here!
>>8922803God they're so fat and hideous lmao
>>8922803i love gaon so much, what a great designtake care of him anon
>>8922805They’re huge and I love them.
>>8922954>>8922959>>8922965You sons of bitches, after releasing the ryuki shodo. I'll take em regardless.
>>8922821Jesus is that Figuarts Delta? If so these are about twice as big as I imagined they'd be. Based?
>>8922959>>8922965>80% the price of the Figuarts from 10 years agoDamn
>>8922954>>8922959>>8922965Hot damn>>8922996Yeah. This might be the norm with Sentai, but idk I wasn’t expecting this much chunk to them. I’ll need like a 7.5 inch Zenkaizer to pose alongside them. >>8922818Will do!
>>8922622They fucked us out of Reboot Kikaider too, probably because the movie bombed. I feel like I'm one of the only people who actually likes the design, so I'm still a little upset about it.
Did any of you get Figuarts Blades yet? Mine shipped on March 27 via Air SP and I haven't seen him yet.
also, is carranger have minipla version?>>8921797do you have link for this anon?>>8923115nope, mine still on custom
Did anyone who ordered the CSM Snegoku Driver from Tokullectibles get a shipping email yet? I don't even know if they're out yet, but I'm just anxious to go full Kachidoki.
>>8923115Air SP has delays at the moment, maybe a delay of a week or so.
>>8923115Yeah got it last month from Nin-Nin
>>8922733That was a good call anon, one just popped up on Manda for a 100 bucks. So good save.
What kind of shipping service does SHFUpgrade use? Or can I contact them about that? EMS and SAL are pretty fucked where I'm at rn and they'd certainly be stuck in customs, so I'd just like to know.
Kinda feeling a SHF Genm LVL0/2 or a Cronus. How are they? Thinking of getting either one.
>>8922954God dammit. I'm never getting that SS Ryuki
>>8923818You'll get one probably next year or sometime this year. Between this and the FRS Ryuki, they've been pumping up Ryuki stuff nicely.Still waiting on that SS Fourze, though... This year's his anniversary damnit!
>>8922803are you able to figure out the final forme with these 4 alone?
>>8921150Man if these are officially licensed then Bandai certainly won’t ever revive the sentai shf line
>>8920628They’re leaps better than regular shf. Main rider shf suffers even more from being forced to be cheaper than regularly priced shf. Saber is a sad case compared to even other regular main rider shf releases. The sculpt is great and then you can see how the paint budget and finish ran out before they had even gone past the waist.
>>8921471>>8921486Black isn’t just great because of him though. The suit actor and the suit design is why I’m buying that SHFSS not Tardsuo Kuratard.
>>8920721>>8921486>>8924343You seething HUEzillians need to get over it.
>>8924343Kurata stepping on his own dick isn't gonna have any bearing on whether I do or don't end up with SS Black. I was simply posting what was going on for the other anon that wasn't aware.
>>8923808I like my GENM very much.
>>8924328They be official
>>8923808I've got Cronus and he's super limited in terms of accessories and articulation. Two sets of hands, NO Bugvisor in weapon mode, and hard plastic skirts along with big bulky shoulders limit him to basic standing and punching posesGenm, on the other hand is great, whichever version you get. I've got level 0 and level X and both are solid figures in terms of accessories and articulation.
>>8923808LVL X Zambo is based
>>8924620Debating if i wanna sell off my level X and pick up a fresh copy of the zombie mold with X0 Fullcarttoys has an option set for the X specific parts so i might just order that along with X0
>>8924642I need to get that since I got lucky and snagged Lv0, Zombie and God Max for cheap, at the cost of Zombie missing his White Gashat
>>8924649https://fullcarttoys.boutir.com/item/Dangerous-Zombie-Lv-X-Accessory-Set/6292521925869568If you order from them, update the thread on how it goes. I'm debating on ordering from them but its the same kind of site SHFUpgrade uses so I'm really hesitant.
>>8923936Magine and Vroom I can’t figure out. They have a lot of parts that pop off, in fact I can even split them in half. But I have found a nice looking limb formation for them yet. Maybe in time I’ll get inspired, or TwoKaiOh could provide some hints. But for now, I have severe doubts they’ll all combine by the end.
Part of me wants Grand Zi-O just because it will be a nice shelf pieces but... I don't know if I want to pull the trigger on him.
>>8925146no regrets, don't go a year from now dwelling on if you could have gotten him for a non-rape price
>>89251468.5K yen for a figure with missing details and no weapons. unless you've already got previous zi-o shf releases or have some other final form rider weapons, i'd pass.
>>8925146Just buy Ohma ZI-O or ZI-O Ohma. Much cheaper and probably have the bigger shelf presence.
>>8925146Im skipping it just because it's a butt ugly form
There's two Dark Kiva pre orders left at Tokullectibles so I suggest doing so if anyone is interested.
>>8925458>advertising for free
>>8925559I mean its your choice most venues are sold out everywhere online on import sites.I'd preorder at blufin but they probably have a deal going on.
>>8925559>Not trying to help out people who might have missed the opportunity to POWhat are you, some kind of asshole or something?
>>8925458Haven't watched kiva so i'll pass
>>8925566Death is preferable to a Tokullectibles preorder
>>8925559It's okay Eugene, the guy is just trying to help out others who haven't gotten their preorder. Go be angry on /m/ or something.
>>8925676>DeathI know you younger folks here have weird ways of joking but what the hell are you on about? If you want to complain about something give a bit of detail and don't sound like some zoomer twitter kid.
Apologies if this is wrong place. That being said, I've been getting really into kamen rider zero one, and wanted to start collecting at least his driver belt and like, the main set of progrise keys he uses. Is the market for zero one massively inflated, or am I just having the usual rise because he's done and the toy line is over? I was estimating it'll run me $90 for the belt and $20 for 6 keys, and then an additional $50 for the shining hopper key. Is this a reasonable budget?
>>8925676Then do us all a favor and kys
>>8925458there's gonna be a regular US release so there's no need
>>8925713There will always be late tax unless it’s something that was heavily over produced or was hated by consumer and fandom alike.
>>8925676Why not choose death then?
>>8925727The preorder there is the u.s release.Like I mentioned above I think Bluefin has a deal with the website. They also carry a few Storm Collectibles or did that Bluefin themselves did not carry.
>>8925708They take gratuitously long to ship, mainly. The SD Seiken Sword hasn't shipped in roughly two-three months, despite taking new orders, and Momotaros had similar issues.
>>8925772Sounds like a (you) problem, champ. I've always had timely shipping from Tokullectibles.
>>8925738Late tax is no issue. I have a decent job, steady payments, and I've accepted that I'm the work wierdo and collecting toys will set me a world apart. I'm also not too concerned about mint, so I guess these collection sales on ebay would be a good way to go?
>>8925772I've never had issues either. They even date their schedule on a calendar and usually ship that time unless they tell you theres a delayed shipment.
>>8925782I mean you can do that and be a dumbass if you'd like.Or be a smart shopper its whatever choice you'd like.
>>8925676Choke on a rock then retard lmaoIt isn't a shill post. tokullectibles is just genuinely a good source to get P-Bandai figs
>>8925793What would a smart shopper do in these circumstances?
Thinking about late tax, how much am I going to have to shell out if I find SHF Kiba or SIC Boss? It has been a while since I've dug into toku stuff outside of candy toys.
Is there any place the scans the csm instructions online?
>>8925826He's probably going to say some bullshit like watch carefully and buy at a discount, and that a real buyer have avoided late tax entirely.
>>8925888Nice assumptions dumbass.Just preorder what you like.
>>8925922>If you didn't preorder you're a dumbass>people aren't allowed to buy shit if they weren't there in timeLet's be real, most /toy/posters bust shit out of boxes, display in non-optimal conditions, and otherwise mess shit up to the point that considering these toys investments isn't actually worth it. Late tax is ehh in the grand scale of things, and a $10-30 increase in price isn't worth waiting years over.
>>8925928You’re seriously over thinking this dumbass.
>>8925929You still haven't told me anything smart aside from "just pre-order".
>>8925935How is that not smart? Your making this complicated this shit isn’t rocket science.Pre order what you like on the sites given to you and if you don’t like it resell it.Dumbass.
>>8925939>ask about buying toys from a completed toku series>get advice to preorder and resell said toysOh, I get it. You're the dumbass whose advice I shouldn't follow.
>>8925939>>8925939You really don't have anything to say but 'dumbass', huh? Dude was asking for a "smart shopper" option and the only shit you pull are snide remarks.
>>8925944How is this bad advice? I bought two copies of SS W and helped a fellow anon on BST and sold it to him via retail price. I wish I did this with Eternal but you know what fuck you.>>8925945You are a dumbass.
>>8925948Tell us how you're going to preorder the hiden kamen rider zero-one driver belt, dumbass.
>>8925948>Want some Zero-One toys>Late tax is no issue, anon has a job decent job that gets to pay those collection sales on ebay, this a good way?>You can be a dumbass and do that or be a 'smart shopper'>What would a smart shopper do, then?>Pre-order what you like bruhYou still haven't answered that anon's question. Dumbass.
>>8925955I’m not the dumbass who has to figure that out.
>>8925959Then don't be an instigating cunt that spouts useless information.
>>8925958Well bruh latecomers tax is what you deal with unless you wait for a reissue with any other product unless it’s p Bandai.Deal with it dumbass.
>>8925962Who said it was useless? Just because you’re useless at common sense doesn’t mean what advice I’ve given you is uselsss.You’re just a dumbass, dumbass.
>>8925963So, you had nothing important to say but call people dumbasses. Alright then. You could've just said some other important info like, say, the Zero-One belt shit is on mandarake for cheap prices yet you come in and only shit the thread up with your snide remarks. Real wise guy.
>>8925967>you should value my advice because even though it has zero relevance to your situation in might be useful in some wayOh, one of those? You need to think bigger, dumbass. Your advice isn't nearly helpful enough>bitcoin in 2010 is a miracle buy>if you invent the smartphone in like the 90s you could rule the world>don't let christopher poole discover 2chan
>>8925970Yeah you go do that and pay 10k to ship it.I am wise but not a dumbass, you dumbass.
>>8925972I don't understand all this green texting.I just know you're a dumbass for taking any of this seriously, dumbass.
>>8925973Not him but Manda shipping is fine lmaoIt's Sahra that's price hiking shipping
>>8925973Yeah, real wise guy to shit up the thread with irrelevant info to the guy looking for Zero-One toys. Why don't you grace us with this o so wise information?
>>8925974You uhh okay there sonDid daddy call you dumbass a bit too much as a kid?
>>8925977Nah you're still fucked especially at big items like that.>>8925980Why do I need to give you info that you already know? Are you just a dumbass?>>8925982How much of a dumbass are you to be so offended over this? Did you forget to green text more irrelevant shit that has nothing to do with the topic, dumbass.
>>8925984My last order was like 3 big DX stuff and some spare shit and was barely 6k
>>8925772Yeah, I never have issues with them. It sounds like a personal issue so don't go around like a diva just because you are one of the unlucky few. Keep your complaints on their Facebook page or something, let the adults with kids toys talk here.
>>8925984Had you put that info for the anon asking for shit out there instead of going off a like a broken record you won't need to ask that.
>>8925985Really? I had one from Nakano for 3 belts and it was over 8k.I still paid for it but one of them was CSM.
>>8925987Looking around, there are a number of complaints in the last month about people not getting things shipped/their tracking numbers
>>8925991They still haven't shipped out my Ixa... yet all the popular people on Instagram got theirs on literal day 2...
>>8925991Sounds like something they should take up with the actual shop itself and not in the whatever page or image board they are in.
I brought it. A tad over at $300 with shipping, but fuck it, stimmie wasn't going to go anywhere useful. I'm calculating I paid 65$ over if I had gotten it day 1, which isn't the worst late tax. I may be a dumbass, but I'm a dumbass with a fuckton of progrise keys.
>>8926025You're a dumbass but you're a happy one.I'm happy for you anon enjoy them.
>>8926025You can't compare a loose used lot's price to a set of new boxed ones.
>>8926046You're right, with the drops in condition and quality that'll follow, these goods are maybe worth half, if not a third of that.Even with the originals, I still would have popped them out of boxes, though. And used doesn't bother me.
>>8926025Honestly that's not bad considering the prices for half of the stuff
>>8926138god damn stickers
>>8926025One of the best toylines in recent Rider history. You did good
>>8926142Bandai ain't Kotobukiya. They ain't painting shit for you on the runners.With designs this intricate, an assload of stickers is probably guaranteed on these Heisei Heisei designs.
>>8926244They are. You just gotta pay more.They even did flat coat on frs geiz.
>>8926138>>8926142Yeah no, even with my model skills I'd rather avoid this and wait for the SHFSS next year.
>>8926346>implying Ryuki gets something next year>next year is Fourze's anniversary
>>8926356Fourze began airing on 2011, anon. So, this year is his anniversary.
>>8926356Ryuki is already getting EVERY Rider and Contract Monster in So-Do form...
>>8926398that does not prove anything
>>8926142Stickers seem to be mostly for the dragon, which seems fine to me considering the price range.
saikou requires drilling on the handle to be held
>>8925826Check Mandarake for zero one stuff
>>8926698Will do. I want a decently priced shotraiser, and I'll probably cut it off there, considering a bunch of vulcan's keys were things you had to go to a movie to get, I believe.
>>8926779Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe any of Vulcan's keys were exclusive. Kong was retail, so was Assault Wolf and Rampage Vulcan. the only limited keys I can think of are the new keys for the V-cinema and the japanese wolf key that comes in the AIMS memorial set.
>>8926793Oh, really? I thought I saw that gatling hedgehog was a movie thing. Ahh well, I'll check it out on mandarake.
I thought this was going to be too small to hold comfortably, but I'm glad I was wrong. Fits just fine in my hamhand.
>>8927010>CeeVeeIllustrations Kyuranger printNice. I collect their pins and have been eyeing that same print for a while now.Also, if you're in the market for a Tamashii Buddies Pink Ranger, I've got one I'm looking to sell/trade.
>>8927063I had the Pink one too, but I passed it on to my little niece. And just out of the picture I also have CeeVee's Daizyujin print and a Cross-Z print framed.
>had to order Gamma Future from Nippon YasanThis year has been rough for Ultraman collectors
>>8927070Hope you paid for DHL or boat shipping cause they don't ship anything else
>>8927168I'm in the states, I have to go DHL for everything anyways
>>8927223Well you can go boat, but fair They also don't respond to emails anymore. I admire your courage
>>8926398>SO-DOSo more fucking stickers? Hahaha no thank you..I thought it was SHODO by the way? Did they typo their own shit?
>>8926270>Gotta pay Bandai $100 for what Koto will do for $40It's honestly both hilarious and sad how scummy Bandai can be.
So I got SHFSS Diend. I knew it came with the cracked arm joints so I got the SHFUpgrade ahead of it arriving. But messing around with it and I'm not sure what the cracked joint actually hinders. Could someone explain to me why I'm stupid please?
>>8927493Nothing, it just looks bad
>>8927493Might shatter with time, upgrade is just for paranoid people
>tokullectibles announces Saber shipment was considerably cut>after multiple delaysYou were saying, anons?
>>8927517>>8927520Cool thanks anons!
>>8927522They still haven't shipped my Ixa...
>>8927522How is it their fault that the distributor screwed them? Everyone who paid for one is still getting it.
>>8927617Whatever man, they can still go suck a dick...
>>8927643>>8927617Nah man sorry, it's been aggravating. They ship out to the people who have a lot of followers before they submit it to people who ordered day one preorders as soon as they post on Twitter. I'm sure I'll get mine sometime but I'm just salty when they make normal people wait and give others priority.
>>8927070After all the shit I've gone through with them I can't think of a single figure that would make me do that. You're a brave man, anon.
>>8927522I'm getting mine, so I don't care. If you can't shell out 35 bucks then you probably have bigger concerns than collecting
Are there any known bootlegs of SHF Rabbit Tank Hazard?
>>8926142>all those stickersthis hurts my soulI have the Ryuki figuarts and that shit is still super cool
>>8926142>>8927936Def aim for Figuarts
>>8927977What does this even mean
>>8927989Do not worry about it.
>>8928035You can't stop me
>>8927816Hazard I'm not sureI think base Build and Magma def have bootlegs
>>8928063Rabbit rabbit has one and grease blizzard
>none of the custom SHF sellers make weaponsthe one thing that would've made them useful
>>8928118Take it up with them not us. I have spoke with SHFUpgrade and they won't do anything without people engaging with them. Less complaining and more messaging the source.
>>8927068I have their mini-prints for the Kamen Rider ParaDX Lvl. 50s and Ninjaman somewhere in need of frames. I'm signed up for their Patreon for pins and just got Zangetsu Kachidoki Arms last week. I can't wait for AbareMax next.
>>8922954>>8922965any way to get these individually and not the 10 pack
>>8928156>Take it up with them not usWhy? I'm not complaining
>>8928191So what is the point of your post? Just bitchin like the rest of us?
Maybe I wont get the CSM Sengoku Driver and the Kureshima lockseeds set...
>>8928202Fucking hell I hate I can't cancel my pre order
>>8928202It's just authentic battle damage. What's the problem?
>>8928202That would suck if I paid so much money and got a product like that. Sucks >>8928205 anon bro. Maybe just resell it in the secondary market without opening it.
>>8928207>authentic battle damage>not pic related
>>8926270MGFRA doesn't count because it's a product literally sold on the idea that they painted this shit for you. KOTO does it on regular merch.I'm aware they mass spray some small parts. Gold on Kuuga and Silver on Zi-O. I'm talking intricate detail painting like the ones on MGFRS but without the limited production stipulations of PB. They did it in the 80s and basically swore off doing it in favor of injection molding the vents and whatnot.
>>8927358SODO is the line where you buy a base figure that can equip a bunch of armors. Around 5 inches tall, give or take.SHODO is a line of completed figures that don't come with stickers. Two different lines that sounds almost identical but are of different scales.SHODO matches Ultraman's CHODO. SO-DO is a sore thumb in not matching with anyone because they're bigger than SHODO but smaller than SHF.>>8927493Joint will be easier to break in time now that there's a weak point. Also looks bad.>>8927070A guy in Japan emailed PB about round 2 on Gamma. No plans. PB told him to F5 on his cart page waiting for anyone to potentially cancel.Considering the figure sold out within an hour in both Japan and China, why Bandai isn't bothering with a 2nd round is beyond baffling and incomprehensible.
>>8928215Yea i'm gonna have to clear it when i get it
>>8928233Speed grade does all that back in 2008.What else?
>>8928165Chris is actually a buddy of mine so I try to support him whenever I can. I bought the Gaim pin and my Daizyujin and Kyuranger prints as a birthday gift to myself to redecorate my room a bit. Next time I get some cash I definitely want more Rider prints to hang up by my computer area. When I bought the Cross-Z print from him at PMC '18 he apologized to me because he printed in the wrong rez and the print was super blurry, so he gave me a better Cross_Z print as a bonus to apologize for the mistake. Dude's a really solid guy.
>>8928278Got me on that one. Completely forgot Speed Grade existed.
>>8928250>Considering the figure sold out within an hour in both Japan and China, why Bandai isn't bothering with a 2nd round is beyond baffling and incomprehensible.They already made the figure and they don't want to make a second batch.
>https://twitter.com/figsoku/status/1381866591793475584>SHF ZI-O and Seihou W will be reissued>As event-exclusivesWell fuck you too, Bandai.
>>8928484YES! I knew holding out was a good idea
>>8928498You gonna take a plane to that event?
>>8928501site doesn't mention event exclusive for W
>>8928510>>8928516>>8928484Nips aren't too happy about this, too.
>>8928516I can read what the tweet says. But if you click on the article and the links provided, Bandai only has event exclusive for Zi O.
>>8928526仮面ライダー生誕50周年を記念し、ご要望の高いS.H.Figuarts(真骨彫製法) 仮面ライダーW サイクロンジョーカーを特別に会場販売。
>>8928526Well, hopefully that's the case of him being in an actual resale. I need a W, too. But I'd love to see others being resold like Agito or Wizard.Tho, I'm still skeptical based on nip perception.
>>8928531>>8928516>>8928510>>8928484I just want DoubleAnd this is still gonna be over $100 isn't it?He's already like $140+ on Manda nearly. I need him still and the other SS guys and they're all like $120+ each
>>8928537He's gonna be sold at his retail price. So, in the case that he isn't an event exclusive, you won't make that $100 mark unless shipping fucks you over.
>>8928543he is though
there's no way SHFSS W doesn't get a general reissue what with the anime coming out
https://twitter.com/t_features/status/1381889862828056579?s=20Gamma Future is getting another pre order window
>>8928553that's not bandai's site
>not already owning double doubles
I've noticed that the rubber straps on my Rider belts start to, like, deteriorate with time. They develop this sticky residue on the surface that I need to clean off. Is there a way to prevent that, or does it just be like that sometimes?
>>8928608cant believe you are this retarded
>>8928639>Is there a way to prevent thatthats the plasticizer inside the plasticyou can clean it wish dish soap but it will resurface again
>>8928592Thank God Bandai made some plans to actually love the money for once.
>>8928202The poor QC on the Sengoku Driver is really damning, especially when the OOO Driver set such a high standard.
>>8928484Doubtful but I want to see FangJoker reissued.
>>8928714That general release was meant for the first release It’s not limited cause it’s not limited edition and they are simply reprinting ss double but you can only get it at the event. Now are we clear?
>>8928717And all they did on this zio was different packaging.
So are all you crybabies that somehow missed out in the two prior releases of SS W happy now that we get a third release instead of some actual cool figures for event exclusives this year?
>>8928777I only got to find out and watch W last year, retard. There could lots of people wanting a SS W long after the figure had already been released.And no, I'm not happy yet cuz I dunno if I can pre-order that shit.
>>8928777There's a whole bunch of people who are gonna want it cause of the anime
So seeing that this is now relevant due to reissue news. Anyone can confirm if SS Double hands can wield any 1/12 weapons? Preferably TomyTec LittleArmory guns.
>>8928805If by Double you meam his LunaTrigger form then maybe. I don't have it but it comes with the Magnum so it automatically can wield 1/12 weapons. CycloneJoker however cannot because he does not come with any weapon holding hands.
Well, that's one way to get a replacement joker memory
>>8928805If he comes with a pistol grip hand then it should be fine. The only issue I would foresee is that the hands on the SS figures seem to be made from a little sterner stuff than regular releases, so you may need to heat them up to get a LA gun in there.>t. SS Latorartar and LA gun owner.
>>8928193Why are you so sensitive
>>8929025Says the dude who sounded even more sensitive with the original post. Both of you shut up.
