well, you may be able to get good prices ordering from AU, but not sure about any local stores in NZ, sorry.

The nagato is made by Sega or Konami? I would probably open that one to put on the computer desk. Owning a Toro though, hmmm, lol.

Yochi arrived today but charu is still in the mail.
in case you dont know, diamond comics is a wholesaler that distributes kotobukiya and gundam figures legitimately in the US. so if you see them in a comic shop its most certainly a licensed item. they even change the packaging sometimes by adding english if needed.
Spoiler for NA box:

here is compared to an older figure of the same series.
the older figures feel very light and most people would question charging 30$ for the quality, but back in those days figure making processes were still in infancy.
the new figures are much more solid. the base is permanent, a screw is holding her foot in place and cannot be removed. each part of the body and bag was covered in plastic wrap within the shell case itself.
Spoiler for Yochi:


and since I know this is what you really want to know
Spoiler for I even changed the camera lens for you:

overall I like this figure, the quality is good and the price is decent.
now I need to wait for charu so I can have a pair together

That Tsukihime figure set is over 4-6 years old. it was also produced in limited run. the only way you are going to get it is by going to toranoano in japan or finding a replica set from china or possibly someone may sell it on an auction site. I was actually going to buy it when it first came out but I changed my mind for some reason.
it was made by Spring http://www.hlj.com/product/SPG70001

The FA4 Figure Collection came out last year, you can easily get it off ebay or another auction site most likely.
but be prepared to spend 60-90$ for it, as the box originally sells for over 50$ and now you have to pay a premium.
try contacting this guy on ebay if no auctions show up (I think there are some though)
http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...15258&frm=1883

That last ciel you posted is a resin kit. that means you have to build it yourself. and it was also produced in a tiny run, so you can only find fake replica kits now but that probably doesnt matter much to you if you plan to have someone else build it.
I dont know about that website u posted. you could contact them and see how much they charge to build it.

this Ciel is still available
http://www.hlj.com/product/SIT03036


EDIT:
OK I got my charu in

the packaging is good again and the box is quite big
the figure is not attached to the base, in fact, the wall piece itself is seperate and can be removed from the base
the figure loosely sits on top
Spoiler for pics:

Spoiler for and now for the bad news...:
I really hate when they do this, why? does it really save that much money in production costs?

About Anime figurines???

Hi all,

I'm considering to start an online biz in my country singapore, selling anime figurines. But, I've since met with the difficulties of finding suitable suppliers. I've thought of negotiating with some taiwan shops, so I could get cheaper price and resell them to locals to earn a small profit. Yet, I could not find any online taiwan website selling figurines. Could anyone give me some suggestions on these, as I really would like to start out a biz that involve my passion..

Regards,

AnimeFrenzyRocks

You are going to have to get someone (or find a service) to bid on these, I think, at auction. Is that okay?

The top one, I saw at the last Wonder Festival, and may (should?) have seen the second there as well. I haven't seen either announced as PVC figures either, so resin kits might be all that is available.

Everyone seems to take great care of their figurines ^^

I have one question: what do you do with the boxes? I have a couple of figurines with damaged paint job because of them falling or rubbing against something, so I kept the boxes for those I don't display. Problem is, The boxes are using too much space and I have that in limited amount. What's a safe but space saving method to keep those figurines you don't display anymore? I have read people putting them in ziplock bags and such.

Also another problem I have is those boxes are very pretty sometimes, it's such a shame to throw them away.

keep your displaycabinets a few inches/a foot off the wall and stack your boxes behind them
Ok, doesn't really look good with cabinets that have a glass rear wall, but always plan ahead

I wrote up a few more tutorials for figure building.
Eye painting tutorial
Masking/Enamel wash tutorial

Hopefully these will ease some of the apprehension towards building resin kits...

This is just a stock photo of the one I have, since my cam's batteries are dead.
It's all the same figurine, just changeable bodies and faces.

It's my pride and joy though, he sits on top of my monitor and no one is allowed to touch my little L. =3

Spoiler for Andddd...:

Another L, but he was a little cheapie one that came free with the third DVD. <3


Spoiler for Not a figurine:

But still precious.

Spoiler for <3 moar.:

I can't sleep without it. I'm not kidding.



So yeah... I guess you can tell who I love the most.

All 24 of them Hatsune Miku? And not just a box from the shop to help him carry a large number of other figures? lol we'll never know.

I have some IMEX 1/24 Auto display cases meant for model cars. They're the right size for mini Nendoroids.

Note - I bought my cases locally. I've never ordered from this site.
