I guess the old thread stopped bumping.

Just preordered my first 3A figure along with some other things. Might add Nendoroid Petite Racing Miku because of the cool car.

Do you have anything preordered, toy general? Anything coming up that interests you?

So I picked up a few new figurines recently and now am in need of a display case for them, since my shelves are very much running out of space (especially since I have very little room left on my shelves) and things like this little setup I have outright don't fit on my shelves since there's tons of books and nonsense in the way.

Anybody have any recommendations for a decent display case I can order, or should I just hoof it to an IKEA? (Closest one is out of town, sadly.)

Side note, does anybody have any recommendations for any stand or display setup for figures the size of the Metal Gear Play Arts Kai series? I just bought MGR: Revengeance Raiden (and bigtime overpaid for it now that Amazon tossed one up for nearly 40 bucks less, so I'm a little angry, but whatever) and it had it's own stand, but I want something that can support the others in my set.

Sad to hear that, but I'm not too worried about the import industry as a whole. I'm inclined to think they just weren't getting the same amount of business that similar sites like AmiAmi are getting, and there could be reasons for their closing that aren't necessarily monetary.

What's better overall, SAL or ESL?
>> No. 210759
ESL? Do you mean EMS?

I use SAL all the time and usually things arrive safe and sound in two weeks at the cheapest rate. I've heard stories about problems, though, especially around the holiday season--there's no insurance and no tracking so it's pretty much a gamble. Good for cheap things or one figure at a time.

RSAL I used once and didn't really care for. The tracking also only updates like 2 times so it's kind of worthless. If you're importing something expensive (or around a holiday) it's good because it's insured for cheaper than EMS but otherwise I'd pass.

EMS I used the first time I imported and it's nice to have something right away (~3 days for me), but kind of sucks because it's more expensive. Good if you're impatient or buying something you want insured.

I like SAL since I'm cheap but I would never use it on something over $30.

>Also waiting on a Charming Drossel
Neat! I love Charming Drossel's design, I almost bought the figma but at the time I think the exchange rate was horrible and I couldn't justify the higher than usual price. Everyone takes lovely pictures with her, though, which makes me kind of jealous.

Drossel's show consists of two seasons of 13 shorts, both seasons only last about 30 minutes all together. They're more something you play before commercials than anything else, and occasionally are reliant on Japanese puns that don't translate well. It's still fun, though.

Aah. I figured initially she was a Japanese female T.O.M. of sorts. I wouldn't mind them porting her shorts to America with a Woolseyism dub, doing what they did with Azumanga Daioh and finding equally appropriate English puns instead. (I was always a fan of the strip where Osaka thought Jean-Claude Van Damme was named Damn Van, so there must be someone named Damn Car out there.)

Not a bad Rukia figure. Her eyes are a little far apart, but that seems to be a universal problem with anime figures.

It's actually some stretchy rubber glow in the dark rope stuff that my parents sent me a few years back for Christmas. It's fun to pick up and mess around with every now and then.

The top shelf (not pictured) is full of hard and paperback trades for western comics (which honestly I tend to prefer for the most part)

Completely agree with you on Anime figures. There's almost always something about them that's just... off.

There's a new line of models of DC Comics women as 1950's pin-ups.

http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/gamereport/awesome_stuff_exclusive_batgirl_cgx2DKQd6rpFzE9i6dX8jM#axzz2YZ2Guy6h Barbara looks amazing, and she gets my vote for "redesign I'd most like to see cosplayed", but the scarf/cape combo seems a little redundant.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC31313#.UdyN6D49x74 Diana's expression is a little weird, but I love her costume. Kinda like a badass 50's mechanic, just a little more pinup-y. Love the definition on her legs, too.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC31350#.UdyN6T49x74 Kara's bustier-dress and scarf look great. Love the gold detailing, and that smile.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC0025#.UdyN6z49x74 Pamela gets my vote for the best pose. Love that simple-but-elegant old-school lingerie.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC0049#.UdyN7D49x74 Harley wouldn't look out of place in Borderlands 2, she has a Mechromancer look to her. Love the jacket, belt, boots, and goggles. Red-tipped hair looks way better than that half red/half black look.

Fragility confirmed. I stood her up and rocked her back and forth lightly to try and get her into a position where she could stand... and the little o-ring that held her foot on broke in half.

That sucks. Street Fighter figures seem pretty pricy and hard to come by (in my experience). Hope you got good replacements.

As for Rukia, ya one of the biggest complaints with her was that her feet snap off way too easy... I really hope I can fix her, but with the way the figure's weighted and how thin her legs are... I don't know. Seems like they didn't really think things through.

Do the people running the convention and/or the official sellers of the exclusives do anything about scalpers at present, or is their mindset seemingly "so long as they're buying our merch and padding our pockets before they go try to rip people off, we don't care"?
>> No. 213787
Some merchandisers selling direct at convention are strict about it because they know some assholes just do it and then turn around and sell it at their booth across the floor. Mattel I know for one has a history of enabling that kinda behavior allowing scalpers to just buy whole cases of merch though and last I heard the convention itself can do little to curtail that behavior. Hasbro is a bit more fair since they usually have whatever is on floor also up on their site at some point as well.

Hey, as someone pretty much completely out of the loop on how this stuff works, could someone more educated than me explain why a figure can be publicly shown more or less complete looking and then disappear for years? Something I've been curious about.

licensing and scheduling are some of the primaries with sales being another. Domon didn't exactly burn up the sales charts hence Master Asia gets shelved with only recently coming back out into the open with their starting to pursue the Western Market same with Digimon. The other is what happens with Figma in that what is more popular and a sure sale such as figures from the most popular girl show or famous celeb getting pushed to the front and others such as Sunred and his associated sitting in limbo for years or being released as exclusive. Thankfully the exclusive bit isn't has bad as it used to be with Goodsmile having an international shop and Bandai putting most what they think will sell through the Blue Fin distribution.

I bought this same Chun Li toy, but sent it back when the legs Papa's easily. After waiting several months for the store to find a replacement, I said "screw it" except a refund, and took my business to Amazon.

Has anyone had any problems with Riobot Blodia? Mine has a stuck right hip joint (left moves fine). I suspect they somehow accidentally superglued the joint because there was a visible blob of it outside the joint, so there may be some within the joint itself.
