>>9516318What are these pizzas?
>>9517338Some of the best looking1/12ish pizzas in my opinion.They are also based on a real Japanese chain.https://gashapon.jp/products/detail.html?jan_code=4549660721932000https://item.rakuten.co.jp/auc-toysanta/g-4iza000t4h-005/
>>9516321>>9517364Are the boxes plastic? I hate that style of rounded pizza boxes, shit's too fiddly even at 1/1 scale. If they're actually cardboard you'll probably need tweezers to properly close one of these.
>>9517364Where can I buy it?
>>9517399I really wanna get one or two of these, but im still waiting for the new batch of beetle bois to come out, cuz holy heck is shipping painful
Scheduled for May release crabs 02.
The dragons are out and they look okay.https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10773042
>>9522024>https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10773042Did they scale down the figure?
>>9524197Wingspan has always been 5.5in, length less than that. Length might even be from head to tail.They look cute. I’m glad I ordered a few, we’ll see what colors I get.
>>9523762uwu whats this? More ikimono crabs, or are these from someone else?
>>9524911Yes it's crabs 02.https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10846969
>>9523762>>9524961Gat damn, I'm already rubbing my hands together in glee imagining the gymnastics they're gonna do to get that long fella's limbs neatly inside a gacha ball. Maybe he'll end up huge too, like ROTF Lockdown, unfolding to a much larger size than his "altmode" ball form.
After checking Rakuten everyday all month, I was finally able to snag some new beetlebois. Didn't care for the whole set tho, so i just picked up a couple of the new ones. No idea why the hercules beetles were harder to come by again when the last wave already had 3
>>9518080does shipping cost up the ass for these $3 things?
Sign me up for some VAG Milking Rabbits
Schedule for January is out.https://gashapon.jp/schedule/I'm pleased to see they're making actual stamps out of the vistamps.
>https://twitter.com/SOTA170317/status/1475980764483588097> Release notice >Museum Modeling Club Ichi 1/12 Human Skeleton>Sorry to keep you waiting! We will leave our warehouse on January 5th (Wednesday) next year >I think you will see it early next year after January 6th (Thursday)! Deployment time varies depending on the locationIt seems like the So-Ta skeletons will get released early this month
>>9533348I saw these someplace for a decent price—but they’re not posable at all, are they?
Hit the local gashapon center hard today. Gonna gift some to friends
wtf do people do to store their gacha toys? They're small, numerous, and varying sizes and shapes. I can't think of anything better than dumping them in tubs and risking screwing up the more fragile ones.
>>9535832I put mine in various small baggies, bubble wrap and boxes when I'm not displaying them. It depends on how durable they are
>>9535832I keep these around my desk, but i still have like 3 other boxes of them packed until i ever get around to painting them
>>9535853Love the cute little Santa hats
>>9522024I received my dragons yesterday and I have thoughts. I’m not in love with them, I think they lean too heavily on a neutral, upright pose that their articulation doesn’t allow you to modify, and the wingspan- though impressive- has the issue every dragon figure seems to possess, which is the inability to fold and take a grounded position. Can’t expect much from a gashapon, but the initial ads made it seem much more articulated than it is.
>>9535832I store them in HG Gunpla boxes. The relatively shallow boxes ensures they don't get stacked too high or plentifully, so they stay safe.>>9535853Adorable! I love that you gave them lil santa hats!
>>9535809Very nice finds! I have the BNA and Takoyaki ones and love them. The Rei is surprisingly cute seeing an IRL shot of it, I kinda want it now. And I NEED that tsuchinoko!>>9536028Hmm, ok, I'm not as bummed about missing out on them now.
>>9535809That's a cool Rei
>>9535853This is a blessed image
>>9536967>>9537017Thanks! Yeah, farm hat Rei is adorable and the Tsuchinoko was a must-get when I saw it in the wild. So plump and cute! I actually have an extra orange one in need of a home, ya know...You can find my info on this thread:>>9467508
>>9537536LOL, funnily enough, that's actually my Carnage post you linked. Hi again! I don't need anything from Japan currently, but next time I do, I'll gladly add that Tsuchinoko to my order if you still have it!>>9537841Ooh, Stryker Lock. I have massive regrets over not getting one. I thought they'd eventually run more colors and thought I could wait for it, but it turned out to be a short-lived experiment.
>>9538352Whoa LOL! What are the odds? I hope you enjoyed the holidays!
>>9544110Those are too cute!
Covid has cured my gacha addiction, they're now almost impossible to get normally where I live.
>>9517377so I got a set of these and to my surprise the boxes are actually cardboard.not sure if disappointed. but they open & close okay.they're Y300 each though which is a bit cheeky.
Any tips for finding and buying/importing these in the US? They look really cool and I'd like to see what's out there.
>>9548386Read the OP post dudeMost of us here are from the US
Does anyone know if these are coming out this month in January, or of theyre coming out in May? Cuz I'm seeing both months on here>https://www.taghobby.com/archives/590712
Can't remember if I posted these
>>9548437it says 5月 so it's gotta be May
>>9548456>>9548461>>9548462Awesome gets! Just got one of those pizzas and about 4 of those arcade stick controllers at the grocery store
A few pics for the So-Ta skellysI just got my payment invoice for them from amico, who else is getting them?
More pics here>https://pastebin.com/kjVfp5V6
>>9548852it sucks how the "blue people" are in-scale but too short enough to look awkward next to other 1/12 figs
>>9548868>it sucks a Japanese toy company make short figures of asians who are notably short in stature compared to huiteys in the western hemisphere
>>9548886he's 165cm, shorter than the average japanese male who is over 170cm, the female figure is also shorter than average
>>9548852What Miku is that?
>>9549611Looks like a Nendoroid head modded to fit on a Picco Neemo body.>>9548868They'd look more proportion with slightly larger head sizes.
>>9549611>>9549741>Looks like a Nendoroid headI was about to say it was the Lucky Star figma head of Kagami as MIku, but I think you're right, but I think it's from a nendoroid petite head actually
>>9550238What was the jap name for these blue people gashas again?
is there anywhere to buy these that doesnt involve like 30 dollars in import shipping??
>>9550297Pale People青白い人 1/12スケールフィギュア
>>9550516nope, covid hit the gacha industry hard as if production costs going out of control wasn't bad enough
>>9550516This tells me you haven't actually tried buying anything and are just sitting around in fear
>>9544115holy fuck is this new? that came out of nowhere. I want that articulated shark so badly.
>>9549611>>9549741>>9550051Nendoroid Petite Hatsune Miku: Good Smile Café Gift Sethttps://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/3808/Nendoroid+Petite+Hatsune+Miku+Good+Smile+Cafe+Gift+Set.html
Has there ever been any 1/3 scale gashapon?
>>9548852Thays a cute miku
>>9548462nice haul where can u buy toggle switch?
I guess lizards are just too complicated to sell as regular gashapon.https://gashapon.jp/dangomushi/special/adv_tribolonotus01/
>>9557018WHEN??I'm still waiting on the geckos, but the only places I see them, they're still on preorder
>>9557099There's this gecko if you want.https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1181079145&lang=en
>>9550516Found the american
>>9557235I was looking at that, but I can't imagine what the shipping would be for just that one. An order from Toy Santa was already $30 to ship by EMS
>>9557018To be real, when I got my armadillo Lizard, my first thought was "this is worth way more than I paid.">>9557276Bruh, wtf are you doing? Why would you use EMS? Was your order just that huge or some shit? I just looked back through my ToySanta orders in recent months (this is tail end of 2021 to give you a timeframe). Most were shipped airmail, I only had to go EMS when I ordered big items like boxed trading figures or multiple full sets of gacha. Here are some sample shipping costs from my orders:1100jpy2600jpy1450jpy2200jpy1630jpy1500jpyNothing over $30 here. And all of these were for multiple gacha, even the 1100jpy one. There is no fucking way you should ever be paying $30 to ship a single one.
>>9557264yeah no shit they used dollars
>>9558391...and? There are like 20 countries that use "$" for their currency.
>>9557264Is everybody from your country such a super sleuth?
>>9557099They're due in May.Preorder on Bandais's online gacha open until feb 28. Just ordered one meself and got allocated the black one.Says they might be out in shops before the ordered ones are sent, but I guess that depends on how many online ones they sell.
>>9558284I thought that EMS and DHL were the only shipment methods that were going out of Japan.
>>9558995Wait, how did you order them if theyre not up for preorder until February?
>>9559373>open until feb 28Pre-orders are open now. They close on Feb 28. So they are open until Feb 28.( If they weren't open until Feb 28 I'd have typed 'don't open until Feb 28')
>>9559714I am not good at reading.
>>9559351Apparently not, since I've been getting airmail parcels from Japan to Caliornia all through the pandemic. I just received another one about 3 weeks ago in fact.
>>95570181,500 yen for one? holy hell that’s going up in price.
>>9563087The TV is pretty big
>>9563087can you show the yoshinoya bowl with a shf size figure? or any 1/12 ballpark?
>>9563087what are those on the top left? lights?
>>9563255Seems like it.
