>>9703032I was waiting for this thread.This looks like a cool set, you can build a tent if you get them all.Apparently it's the 4th set but I've never seen the others before.

i wish they brought back microwars insteadhttps://hobby.dengeki.com/news/1510688/
>>9708771there's too many gacha gundams sublines, ensemble, micro wars, converge, EXCEED, gashapon senshi and now this
>>9703675just when I thought I could call it quits… they start doing wasps.
My last rakuten order hasn't updated tracking in 3.5 months (surface mail)
>>9708771>>9708784how many gundam sub lines are there? goddamn
>>9708800That's normal for surface
>>9703032>>9703669>subject on name fieldBe more careful next time, anonHaving the name of the thread this way is annoying IMO.
>>9708800>>9708847Good lord. I've had a couple packages get lost over the last 6 months, so I'm willing to spring for ems just to ensure I get my stuff. Gasha stuff has been really great recently, I'm just glad toysanta still ships to the US without needing a proxy.
Fucking hell, I finally found some armadillo lizards, and fucking DHL is holding them up. I just want my lizzies and pillies, bros
>>9712535did you declare on the label:>helemaal niet echte hagedissen gaan niet open!!!!(totally not real lizards don't open!!!)
>>9712545No, I'm in the US and never had issues with DHL on the west coast, but here on the east, the shipped it from Cincinnati, to the wrong facility in Harrisburg, back to Cincinnati, then back to Harrisburg, and it's been sitting there since Monday morning. I've never had an issue like this before, especially for fucking $40 shipping
>>9703669>>subject on name fieldlol no wonder i wasn't finding this thread in the catalogue
>>9715956tbis is the secret gachapon threadyou have to know the handshake to get in
>>9708771https://bandaicandy.hateblo.jp/entry/20220409_gundamObviously the next lineup is Nu, probably with Sazabi.Gundam lines always use these guys first.
>>9708771The Microwars gimmick was fun for a bit, but these objectively look better, and the form change gimmick is pretty damn cool.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZPxQ7x0oQwA review, and that's a shitty assortment for army-building as usual
Microwars + MobilityJoint + off-the-shelf double-ball jointshttps://twitter.com/QrOTvLhQ9N56XSW/status/1512631381012393989
>>9717121tfw no more micro wars
Why does op insist on spelling it gaShapon when every jp store and twitter account tags as gaCha
>>9718330They're both correct, you know? Both are real terms that are used interchangeably. So it really doesn't matter which you use. Gacha just happens to be more common.
>>9718330>>9718447GaCHApon is the common term, GaSHApon is the katakana spelling trademarked by Bandai.
>>9718464Wikipedia says they only own that trademark in the US, so it would never need to be in katakana. The article itself also uses "gashapon" as a generic term, which proves you are not correct.
>>9718471Bitch you can search it up in 5 seconds at the Japanese trademark search engine, go shove a gashapon ball up your bullshitting asshole.https://www.j-platpat.inpit.go.jp/t0100
>>9718471>Wikipedia saysYou see this notice up top you retard? Do you see it? It's proves YOU are the retard, motherfucker.
>>9703032Is this a fetish thing? reminds me of a video I saw of a man sealing a woman in a narrow tube under his living room rug
>>9724838The disturbing thing about that video you mentioned is that I knoe that video I have spend too many years here on 4chan
>>9728189Ooh, yes, I need more of these. The first wave was one of the best surprises for me, they're such great little figures.
>>9728319i second thisone of my most faves so far
Anyone here can point me in the right brand/series for regular furniture for shf / revoltechs? My bugmen needs some regular life looking furniture.
>>9703577I recently picked up the entire series 2 of this collection from Ali Express. It's so much better than buying them individually and hunting shit down for a good price
Potter wasps look good.I want Bandai to do bees but I guess it won't be fuzzy enough.
>>9739952Wow, does it comes with the pot? That's way bigger than I expected.
>>9739966https://gashapon.jp/dangomushi/special/tokkuribachi/They handled this pretty well.The ikimono encyclopedia line is starting to remove the stands for some variations, for example kabutomushi 03 and kuwagata 04 will have variations without wings and variations without stands.But on this line they managed to cover the lack of stand for the potter wasp by making the whole shell a pot.
https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10880040if anyone wants random potter wasp.I just buy from kidsroom since I don't care about the rare one and shipping is cheaper there.
>>9739974>kabutomushi 03 and kuwagata 04 will have variations without wings and variations withoutWait, what? If that means they’re cheaping out on some beetles, that’s not good. Unless I’m misunderstanding something and you mean they’re doing wingless beetle species (are there such a thing? I’m not an expert on beetles).
>>9741497They are cheaping out.It's somewhat reasonable. If you follow the gashapon blog, they have been talking about the 500yen price limit being to harsh for what they want to do.Generally the lineup for the future is colored beetles are in regular gashapon capsules and no wings, black color beetles gets display base and wings.There are unique molds that varies. Next rhino beetle series has goliath beetle that comes in regular capsule(no display base) but also with wings.
>>9741779that makes me sad but I understand where they’re coming from. Plenty of other gacha lines are creeping up in price to 500 yen a piece and they offer much less than this line. This line honestly is my favorite gacha line because you really are getting a poseable, well sculpted action figure with a pretty classy base all things considered. I’ve been getting them since the first line and pretty much ended up with a mini natural museum by now.
>>9741779I just got kuwagata 03 but I haven’t opened and assembled it, I got the brown stag beetle, so I’ll see if it’s got wings or not. I’m going to go back and spin a few more times for the black and gold-ish hued one.
>>974343503 still gives display base and wing for all variants, the cost measures start at kuwagata 04.
>>9703032>https://gashapon.jp/scheduleI started a business recently I got the business IDwhat would be the first way to get gashapon in bulk/start a gachapon store?id like to sell shit like this
>>9739952who knows, maybe they would use that technology Sylvanian Families uses
>>9743750what's your endgame?what do you offer that's unique over the other gacha sites?where will you sell? retail or online only?
>>9743986>Sylvanian Familieslol, you mean flocking? It's a pretty old technique. The downside is that it will start to flake off and get patchy if handled too much.
>>9744260Online only, but open to brick and mortar.I could make it affordable to a certain region like CA/USA only.endgame is just I find I could be more passionate about keeping up to date with inventory and releases of gacha. I just want to be surrounded by gacha and gacha only. I had started a business and got a little bit of financial aid but it had to be in a lame ass sector or so that "benefited" people. Part of the "class". I've seen people do "gender-neutral" clothing companies and "education" related shit so I had to roll with it a couple of months during training but I just want to sell shit that coincides with my hobby.
>>9744300well, good luck with that i guess. I live in California so if you can undercut the sites i already use (like Rakuten) i'll fuck with your site.
>>9743343Yeah, it's sad, but frankly I'm amazed this hasn't already happened. This line was giving waaaaayy more than it was worth, for many waves now. With every single new mold I felt like I got way more than 500yen worth.
>>9744315I would. I just need to understand how it works. Do I get a facility/storage and buy in bulk? Do I contact whoever is in charge of SO-TA, Epoch, etc etcWill bandai fuck with me? etc
>>9744323I doubt you'll find much help here, we're mostly just end-users. But just based on my general business knowledge from working, large companies are usually hesitant when it comes to dealing directly with small, new, unproven businesses. I think it's likely you will need to find a distributor and end up paying a cut to them.
>>9744323I think there are sites that sell gacha in bulk but as far as I know they're JP only.Sites like dai4, chappy-net.
>>9744320I never expected Bandai to be such a bro since their other gacha lines are honestly subpar compared to even smaller companies like Kaiyodo or Tomy or PandaAna but that dangomushi line really were fucking GOAT materials.
Hmm, so I am missing parts in a trading figure, and they seem to have accidentally put in an incorrect sprue instead (I was wondering why I had random body parts for a completely different figure left over after I was done). Is it at all possible to get stuff like this replaced by Bandai, or am I shit outta luck?
>>9751360You could always try asking your seller but most global sellers slap "not refundable/exchangeable/etc." on their listings.
>>9751376Damn, I figured. It was ToySanta, I doubt they can do anything for me really.
Holy FUCK how did I not know about these?
>>9751899We've yet to see what's next from this line, right? I'm debating whether I should grab this set. I only have the one set with the red version of the first creature so far. It's a pretty fun figure, but idk if it's something I want to continue collecting if it ends here.
>>9751484It really came out of nowhere, a nice surprise. What a niche pick!
>>9751458It's worth asking, they once sent me a wrong item and they immediately sent the right item after I showed them the error and told me to keep the wrong one.
Some ikimono zukan gashapon news.August release:-Kamakiri 03, Asian Mantis and Orchid Mantis variants-Mini Collection Insects series, lineup is yamato beetle, hercules beetle, giraffa stag and nokogiri stag.Mini collection mushi has more realistic colors but no articulation.
>>9753113Alright, trying my luck. I submitted a pic to their support, crossing my fingers they're willing to replace it.
>>9753132Where do you find out about these? The only other releases I've been able to find are the skinks and crabs coming out soon
>>9753208See>>9744569Sites that sell gacha in bulk usually gets info early, with basic knowledge of Japanese, you get to know what's coming.
https://twitter.com/Gashapon_Bandai/status/1519889472430649344I was waiting for the 1/12 machines to get rereleases, I hope these show up on kidsroom, toysanta, etc.
>>9755905>waiting forHaven't there been many gacha releases in or around that scale already? I think I own quite a few from different series.
>>9751905>>9751901>>9751899this are really good!what are these?
>>9755905>>9756315Would be cool if they put little gashapon machines in the capsules.
>>9751484>already sold out on toysantadamnit.
>>9751899>>9751905Now you have my attention with this line.
>>9756940Is this up anywhere
>>9756940>63mmOh, so they're really small. Well, maybe Mega Construx or something could use them.I still predict this will sell out really fast.
>>9756679I actually have one of those that is supposed to be filled with "mini gashapon machines". Of course, it's just the paper slip.
>>9759332My wallet is so ready for these. Any specific release day yet?
>>9751484Full set is back in stock on toysanta for anyone interested.
Does anyone know how to continue browsing ToySanta chronologically past page 1? Once sets get pushed off the frontpage, I have no clue how to find them again unless I've specifically remembered or written down their Japanese names.
>>9760325Just week 2 of may.Although hobbysearch just updated their product page to after May which usually means they're getting a later batch.>>9760618On the search page, in upper right corner next to the grid view/list view option, you can choose a droplist to organize by date added, the three kanji shortest option.
>>9760629Thanks, very helpful!
>>9760538whoo boy im seriously getting filtered trying to buy off of toysanta, i got an account, but i cant seem to add a US address.
>>9760730https://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/auc-toysanta/order.htmlUsed the guide?
>>9760737i already created an account, so the buy something while making an account option doesn't seem to work anymore unless i make myself a new email. currently looking into how to add a address via profile settings or something
>>9760755>>9760737alright i was able to finesse my way in thanks to that link, thanks dude!
>>9759332fuck I want all of these. I think 04 is a repeat? or are these all brand new sculpts? I definitely can deal with 02 03 04 being far smaller toys if 01 is that epic. Fuck me this one gacha line is just one of my fav toy lines.
>>9760538Lord yes, managed to get em! The set with the big graboid and the lone big guy weren't back in for me, but at least I got the rest!
>>9763301This one? It's the set i bought yesterday. I hope I can eventually get a larger grabboid but i am happy as hell to get these.Tremors is one of my favorite movies.
>>9763325Yup. I grabbed an extra shrieker too, for more fun. I lived for the first two movies as asknmn kid
>>9763325How are you viewing it in English? I know you can manually choose to translate each page with Google Translate, but I'm hoping for something I can just set and forget once.
>>9764624My phone automatically translates japanese and chinese sites to eng so I have to manually turn it off every time so I can copy pase the actual characters
>>9764624Not him but I use a addon.
>>9768067It's just called "Translate Web Pages" for firefox.
I just learned that the holes on gashapon capsules are for breathing if a child swallows it.
>>9737641Have a link? Can't find it.
>>9759332These get listed on Fridays, right? Or is it randomly during the week?
>>9773358Randomly, usually bandai stuff shows up as the week starts sometimes a few days before but for big name stuff like ikimono encyclopedia series they tend to show up later in the week.According to twitter users, it seems to have showed up on gashapon machines so probably soon.
I probably have over a hundred gachapon figures of various sizes. Any recommendations on the best way to store and display that many? Was thinking of getting a cabinet like this but wondering if there might be better-looking alternatives.
>>9777680That's probably a decent option or one of those smaller box lego display cases.I just use a normal Billy shelf for my stuff with some step risers
>2500 yen to ship a small collection EMS>and its going up again in JuneThese cheap, fun little toys are slowly getting not so cheap...
>>9778403>3500 yen minimum stating JuneHoly fucking shit.
>>9778403speaking of shipping any other cheap ass bastards ever pick surface mail and if so how long did it take? I'm looking at 65 days in transit currently at neokyo.
>>9778886I've had regular SAL go as long as 3 months. My shipment must have gone on a grand adventure, but it finally reached me after I had long thought it lost.
>>9778886I’ve done surface mail quite a few times. It’s always taken about three months for it to arrive.
>>9778886I'm so wary of untracked packages, I don't know if I'd trust to spend for than 10 bucks on something and then risk losing it. It really figures, the exchange rate is pretty damn good, but they're absolutely reaming me with shipping. Worse since no one offers SAL anymore.
>>9779397ok what is this?
>>9779427>ok what is this?Desktop ArmyHer clothes 'armor' becomes a little pet, nice gimmick
>>9779540What scale is this
>>9779588did you just say six inch? :o
>>9779540where do I buy this?
>>9779601answer me first >>9779591
Attack its weak point for massive damage.https://gashapon.jp/dangomushi/special/crab02/
>>9779790a wholesome gamer meme
>>9779790i collect plenty of toys but lately these are absolutely my favorite purchases. they’re so much fun to pose around and look at, it’s ridiculous actually that there are other gachas at the same price point but doesn’t even deliver anywhere near as much as these.
>>9779540I mainly just want set 6 and 7 since I like collecting small toys for my toys to play with.>>9779588None-scale, so they're best for stuff like nendoroids or sylvanian families but a lot of the stuff such as food and props can work in 1/10, 1/12 and 1/18 depending on what it is.
>>9779601Amiami, hobbysearch, hobbylink.Pretty must most import stores
>>9751484Ordered a set of these plus a random grab bag of animal gachas, can't wait for them to arrive.Are these buy the same people who did that recent Jaws gachapon set?
>>9779874what about BBTS?
>>9779882its takara arts they make small animals and idnosaurs
>>9779883Probably? They tend to stock Re-Ment, pretty much any store that sells re-ment sets is going to have it so it wont be hard to come by.
Why hasn't amiami put up preorders for bandai august candy toy stuff?Hobbysearch and HLJ has them yet amiami hasn't even put up Mobility Joint 2.
Crabs are out on kidsroom and toysanta.
>>9781581>spend 15 mins looking at all the animal stuff to add with the crabs>crabs sell outoh well.
>>9781778Random crabs on hobbysearch if you're feeling lucky.https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10846969
>>9781790Just going to see if they get more in stock, thanks though.
Does anyone have any knowledge of Simplytoyz? It looks like they have gashapon and candy toy stuff at not terrible prices, but all I can tell about them is that they're apparently in the Pacific time zone.
>>9781274Powerful Pro is so nostalgic. But the ones I wanted all sold out, damn. The shipping going up is a real bummer, cause I can't make small piecemeal orders anymore. I really only buy now when something comes along that I GOTTA have, and I just cross my fingers and hope that all the other stuff I wanted is still in stock by then.
>>9779540This is on hlj but not on the other sites yet.
>>9759332https://youtu.be/3aEHehaLB0wIts a bit smaller than I thought itd be but it looks really good
>>9783361It is exactly the size I expected, being the maximum size you can pack into a gacha ball with those long legs. It's also been shown in peoples hands and compared to the other crabs which were already released, so it's not much of a surprise.
>>9703577Absolute qt T-Rex.Must buy.
>>9783360It's available on amiami, dunno about HS, I haven't checked there
Got my grabois, cybertruck for scale. Paint is actually pretty good, with plenty of painted tiny details and nice washes.Unfortunately they only included one top head piece so you can't have the full graboid and emerging one complete at the same time. Still, fun little figures and they can terrorize your hotwheels or other small toys.
This is some annoying orange uncanny shit.
>>9784026Cool came here to post them. Well this one will help to show scale.Is that brown one the alt? I thought that one was supposed to be larger
>>9787825yeah, it's the "secret" one, looks like it's supposed to be an albino one from later movies.
>>9787181how is this a toy?
>>9751484Awww c'mon I've wanted Graboids and Assblasters since I saw it as a boy.. These look amazing I love capsule toys, but I am never able to get these I can never find Gashapon animals and stuff for a reasonable price. Those looks amazing, can one of you guys play with it on youtube so I can live vicariously? I would love to pop those together and take pictures of them outside in sand. Beautiful and amazing.
>>9787849It's a candy toy, a lot of gacha/shokugan stuff are just figures anyway.>>9787575It's an acrylic figure that has eyed that "follows" you.
HLJ is so slow at fulfilling gashapon stuff.I'm gonna miss the 20% off shipping, shit.
>>9787181>>9790927That's interesting to say the least, I wouldn't mind seeing this sort of feature on a set of miniture spooky portraits
Here's a cool new set of attache cases. Full assortment has two with gold bars, one with cash, one with tiny glass ampoules,and one with a nuke button. Most of the items seem to be removable.
>>9793947Those are great, where can I order them?
>>9784026How did you get a full set? I can't find these anywhere.
>>9795152toy santa has the full set.>>9795215toy santa,they still have the main 4 without the secret in stock.
Anyone have any experience buying gashapon from AliExpress? Are they bootlegs? Kind of don't care if they are as long as they look good.
>>9795788link? "toy santa" brings up Toy Story wikis and christmas ornaments.
>>9796905 in OP.
>>9796741I bought a few from Aliexpress, all were legit so far.
Finally got me some crabby bois
Man, it must be nice to be Japanese and buy gashapon in bulk.
Eyyyy, what can I getcha?
>>9799985I don't know man, I got pretty disappointed when they did the dragon.
What's a trustworthy site to preorder premium gashapon stuff?
Got this kawaii lizard boy delivered today. My first and probably only online gacha.Nice way to finish a long day.It's very nicely done ( but was a premium one.so not cheap)
>>9805513How much was it? Does he ball up?
>>9804980It's like people willingly ignore the OP
>>9805517He doesn't ball up. He's a crocodile skink which doesn't do that. I'm still keeping eyes peeled for the elusive armadillo lizard....It cost 1500 yen. Super articulated and the joints are disguised really well.
Tortoise 06 with september release date.6 types: babcock leopard tortoise, somalia leopard tortoise, albino leopard tortoise. Young and mature variants.What a letdown that they just reuse the 05 mold entirely.
>>9779352ive never lost an untracked package from japan. only china. and I buy lots of shit. you're fine, i assure you.
Sucks that amiami just aren't selling bandai candy toy stuff anymore, new stuff have pages on jp but not on .comThe plamo incident burned them, I guess.
>>9819815It sucks, but they have only themselves to blame. It's just unfortunate that the customers must now suffer for it.
>>9819815>The plamo incident burned them, I guess.What happened?
>>9820469Hobbysearch and Amiami failed to set order limits on Bandai plamo, which opened up a huge scalpers market. Bandai saw this and got pissed, and pulled all their kits off both international sites. HLJ is the only one who followed directions and set order limits, which is why they are still carrying said kits.
>>9820503Really? I swear amiami still has new gundam in its gunpla section on the site.
>>9820529Go to Amiami and search for "HG Gundam" or even just "Gundam" and sort by available. The only gunpla left on the site are preowned items or sold out.
>>9820569Huh... I never noticed.Just checked their gundam section and all I ones I saw in passing were Robot Spirits rather than model kits.
>>9703032I got these two sets today that are mascots from Japanese animal crackers, they're really nice and the bigger ones like the lion are decently heavy
>>9820701Ahh, I love those, they're delicious. The figures are pretty cute too, love the gator.
https://gashapon.jp/products/detail.html?jan_code=4549660766292000Well this is disappointing.The Zenkaiger GP Robo was nice because they were the DX toys scaled down.
https://gashapon.jp/blog/?p=13205Nile crocodile preview.
>>9821276If I was a kid, i'd cry.
>>9821276That's kinda lame, I've collected all the GP versions the last few years and they've all been great mini versions of the DX. Then again these new designs are pretty shit anyway, and I already have better versions of the throwback toys.
>>9703577Start it yourself?
>>9703032Got any pictures of your gacha collection?
>>9827157>replying to a 2 month old post Anon...
>>9827157I didn't have the links and the general was not in the archive and also I figured the same anon made so I didn't want to be that asshole who makes a new thread without the normal OP information.
>>9828811Isn't it just?
>>9828844I'm def gonna pick one of these sets up, maybe the fruit set too. I need some more vegetables to go with my sexy carrot girls
>>9828246This is tight! I wanna get a permanent place to set up my gacha, I have limited space now so most are living in bins.
Did shipping prices go up this year? I just bought a single set on rakuten and surface mail with tracking was 2700jpy. In january I bought 2 sets and the same shipping method was 1900jpy.
>>9829265Oh I think they might have forced an airmail for some reason
>>9829265They in fact did go up, just a few days ago. As HLJ warned, Japan Post shipping costs went up at the beginning of June.
>>9829309Crap. Set had a "late may" release date but only went up on rakuten this weekend.
>>9831619I'm going to assume this will be too small for figmas or any other 1/12 figure.
>>9831764Yeah in general re-ment furniture is too small for that scale
>>9831764>>9831770Most of the food items works ok for /1/12, 1/18 or chibi figure like nendos/pochesbut furniture is smaller than 1/12, maybe some of these would work with 1/18 figs
>>9724838You need therapy if that's the first thing you think of when looking at these.
How do you guys store all your shit? My shelves are taken up by normal figure and model kits but my gacha collection has piled up. Are there any clean efficient ways to store them or is it just a matter of throwing them all into a big box or tub?
>>9831936You will be forever alone.
>>9831938For figures I use stair acrylic risers and have a dedicated shelf for them, inanimate objects I use for pictures like food and such I store in plastic storage boxes that have adjustable compartments.
>>9831938Try one of those knick knack shelves
>>9778886Finally got my order after 87 days in transit. Think I might fork over the couple bucks difference next time.
>>9831945Meds.>>9831977Looks nice, I'll have to find one.
>>9831938I have a display cabinet, instead of piling toys up, when I feel like I don't need one anymore I just sell them.Most of my collection are in good condition and fairly rare, selling them is pretty easy. Like recently I sold my Transformers EZ G1 Megatron for several times the price I bought it even though it didn't have the box and had scratches from fiddling with it.
>>9832568Probably could use an old printer type tray, too.
>>9834501 >IkiDai Seadragon>Premium
Bought these.The can badge and the ball display are 300 yen each and the rubber mascot and badge case is 200 yen. So each display is about 500 yen total.It's real neat, the ball thing is the size of a big, usually 500 yen gashapon ball.Gonna put it on my desk and look at it from time to time while I work.
I don't remember the specific name of the line, but these Gasha guitars are pretty neat. Come with a guitar stand.
Some rotary phones.
>>9837626I got two of those can badge frames recently, they were bigger than I expected but still did the job, I need to get more in blue.>ItsukiAlso good taste in tuplets
>>9703032Ordered this, mainly just getting it for the gotd dryzilla, I assume these skeletons are the same has the previous skeleton Godzilla release?
>>9838401Where did you order from? Are these articulated?
>>9838419Fromjapan/rakuten and yeah they're articulated except for the elbows of it's like the last ones
>>9837626I grabbed a couple badge displays too, they're really cool. I totally missed the ball displayer though, that's really slick!
>>9838401Damn. All on ebay are around $50.
>>9838401They look the same, but it’s hard to tell.I’ve got the previous wave, and I’m tempted to get the gitd one here. On one hand, this is a great idea and I wish they’d do skeletons of the other kaiju. On the other hand, they’re not really worth the cost and trouble to buy.
>>9703032are these rechargeable?
>>9839159Sure, give em a can of tuna every few weeks, they'll be good to go again.
>>9844024>>9844026>>9844028These look fucking awesome, but I kinda feel that with so many pieces, they will fall apart frustratingly easily when handled.
>>9844024>>9844026>>9844028When's the release date? I hate not being able to preorder these in murica or having a warehouse for when other critters release to only have to pay for shipping once
https://gashapon.jp/dangomushi/special/beetle03/So it begins.They have always been complaining about adjusting the prices.At the end of this month, bandai will take orders for the dedicated display stand + more realistic wings.
>>9848323I just noticed the different wing sizes.Anyways, how well does the shokugan base from bandai's candy toy series work with the beetles?
Bandai's fancy new Gashapon machinehttps://youtu.be/MCoY6mElYwQ?t=470
>>9854929Meh, just a light show.1/12 gashapon stationhttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10896092They're also out on kidsroom and toysanta but the color ones are extra pricy there.
>>9854929The fuck? This shit sucks and feels corporate and bland and irritating. I know terms like "soulless" get thrown around a lot nowadays, but this really is that. In fact, my first impression of it is thinking it's just another advertisement, it makes me want to gloss over it and walk away.
>>9848323https://youtu.be/ujKEnG88BLsLooks like they're trying to scrape the yennies by also using normal capsules for the non-display ones.Would've thought the main boy, Goliath, would come with a display base. Still looks really good though.
Time for big gambling.https://search.rakuten.co.jp/search/mall/g-4q89000uep/
>>9858756The horse mask is so great. I bought several. The not-Super Soakers look great too.
>>9858762Found the horse mask to be a bit too big but yeah, the water guns are cool.
>>9858765>horse mask to be a bit too big
>>9858765Did you pull the standard or large one? There are two different horse heads in this wave, at two different sizes.
>>9858789Well that would explain why it's so fucking hugeProbably the big one
>>9858807Yeah, it appears you got the one meant for 1/6 figures. I have both, and the smaller one is perfect for larger 1/12 figures (it's still very large on Figmas). It looks about perfectly sized on a Storm figure.
>>9858756What's the name of the water guns? I'll need to pick one of those up
>>9858128>Time for big gambling.Indeed
Uh oh, the official gashapon guy is talking about how 500 yen isn't enough to keep up with the costs of making stuff again.Soon it will be good bye 500yen Aqua Shooters.
I keep forgetting to tell them that I don't want the capsules. Is there any place I can donate empty capsules to? I would feel bad throwing these in the trash. USA if it matters.
>>9859322>the official gashapon guyWho??>>9860484>Is there any place I can donate empty capsules to? I would feel bad throwing these in the trash. USA if it matters.I guess you can bring them to any Recycling center that recycle plasticBut I kind of remember reading here on /toy on one of the custom generals that there was some japanons who makes some DIY projects with these, but I don't remember what exactly
>>9860520https://mobile.twitter.com/gasha_komagata/status/1539164251969191936He's in charge of Aqua Shooters and a bunch of other stuff.
>>9860583I seeSad that the gashapon prices are increasing
>>9859322Price hikes are never a happy thing, but to be real, I've been feeling for a while now that certain gacha/shokugan lines are already punching way above their weight (looking squarely at you, IkiDai, Tsumugibako, and Shodo), so that's fair. It's not a bad feeling to pay a commensurate price for a great product.
>>9860811It can't be helped since Yen is tanking hard.
New product teaser.
>>9861129I'm into it! Cute!
>>9799786Does anyone here know how well Aqua Shooters scale with Desktop Army? I need to know before I dump 80 bucks on some of them from ebay
>>9799786I would end up going bankrupt if I had such easy access to gachapon
Well fuck me, these guys just came in, and I got one with two right front legs. I wish bandai didn't make them jointed so this couldn't happen, but I'm in the US, so no much I can really do ig. Good thing I order more than one
>>9862293Reasonably well, but the whole style is different, if that bothers you. Like, DTAs don't even have feet, and their proportions/style is a little different than AS. But if all you're concerned about is height, yeah, they're pretty darn close.
>>9799786Man I'd buy a lot of these if I could actually get the for 500 yen and not have to pay 5x that for shipping
Amiami aren't selling new candy toy stuff in their international shop but they are selling boxed gashapon stuff still.I guess they're considered different categories.
>>9862293To add to what >>9863300 said,AS's are slightly taller than DTA's AS's can't use some of the props from DTA's, but DTA's can use AS's props (AS's only have a small circular hole while DTA's have a longer rectangular hole of the same width)AS's have the same head size with taller face plates, while DTA's are shorter and more chibi-likeDTA's ball joint for the head is much larger than AS's, and some DTA's are able to use the hair pieces from AS's, but AS's are too thick for DTA's hair piecesDTA's and AS's arms are not compatible with each other (DTA's use ball joints, but AS's use pegs), both arms are the same length and proportion thoughDTA's use smaller ball joints than AS's for the legs, but AS's legs can slot into DTA's hips albeit very looselyDTA's legs are longer than AS's, they have the same thigh length but DTA's have longer feetAS's proportions are closer to anime / realistic styles meanwhile DTA's are more chunky and chibi-likeThese are the few that I can think of when I was trying to mix both a while back.
>>9863300>>9865665I appreciate the info, and the side by side comparison. I was planning on getting some Aqua shooter bodies for head swap with these corpse party minis. the heads fit pretty well on the DTA bodies but styles definitely clash
>>9703577saw this post. my kids like dinos. think i'm going to go on Ali and get all these dinos for him for like $20 because cute dinos are his jam. holly shit why are they so expensive.
>>9868149If your kids like dinosaurs, I'd like to make a suggestion that you buy them this:https://www.hlj.com/excavated-with-gashapon-dinosaur-fossil-2-1box-8pcs-bann76667This is a ball of plaster with a very basic excavation tool where you're supposed to peel off the plaster and get to the plastic fossil inside.Pic related is the first in the series, the 2nd series replaces Spinosaurus with Bracchiosaurus.Here's a video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAZMwakeH8w
>>9858756I need this horse mask
https://gashapon.jp/blog/?p=13289The bug stand, p-bandai.
Bandai is expanding on the ikimono zukan series, the mini collection has no articulation now doing fishies.https://dai4.com/item/9026
https://dai4.com/item/9027October release, deformed Leopard Gecko.Guess they found a way to get it on regular gashapon.
