I've just brought the remaining Kotobukiya Muv-Luv TSF's that had already been released that I did not own.

Namely the yellow Takemikazuchi Type-00F, the Demonstrator Shiranui Type-94 and the Nigata Tarisa Manandal Custom Type-94.

Already have the Isumi's Valkyries and Avant Garde Type-94s on order.

Damn it, Kotobukiya, bring out a F-22A Raptor TSF kit!!

I'm more impressed about how GSC market this release of Homura. They give you the uniform version and throw in parts that is only compatiable with the Magical Girl version. They are literally tempting people who had bought the previous release to get this for the sake of completion.

Look on the bright side, Snow Miku 2012 is an event exlcusive. Even if money isn't an issue, you need to find a trustworthy source.

Not the first time: they did the same thing with Yui/Tsumugi live stage version and Kurisu white coat ver.

That's pretty simple for Snow Miku (and Homura V2): GSC official website.

That will take forever for them to reach their destination, going by previous experience.

Eh? She's available on GSC's shop; http://goodsmile-wf-global.ecq.sc/nendroid.html

Though proxies like BiJ and Ota will probably offer her, their price+shipping will certainly be higher than GSC.

I am tempted by her, but I am trying to avoid more nendos. I can't even sell the ones I have, and they are evil little things that end up consuming money with their cheap attractive prices that make you buy more than you should.

I also was in that Miku support fiasco, but the recent orders are completely fine.
Hell, even some people got their Kagamine cheerful nendo before the supposed delivery date for people outside of Japan.

Most contact I have indeed got proper EMS and got it within 1-2 weeks.

If there's one thing I've learnt about collecting figures, it's that you will have no problem off loading an icon that people can readily recall. Something like Rei Ayanami will have an established fanbase. Miku is on her way to immortality, even if she had not attained such a state yet.

If you say so. But I'll like to add that once is enough. Twice will be murder.

Oh these are a couple of nendos I got in the post recently. I've also got Haqua and Yozora being sent to me as I type this.

Spoiler for pics:

I have Erio nendo enroute at the moment. I don't even remember when/why I ordered her but I suppose I'll hang on to her until I find somebody to take her off my hands. Preferably with my other nendos and playsets. They're cursed! Vile moneypits. ;.;

I bought my first thinking "Well, it's cheap, why not..." and now like $500 later I'd rather I hadn't started at all. I like scale figures and would prefer to exclusively stick to them. >.<

Crosslinking to inform figure-lovers of the future figure source on the horizon:
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...85#post3967985

Has anyone tried something like that yet?
I have seen a documentation on Akihabara and they had a shop there, that would 3D scan your head, print it out with a 3D printer and place it onto a figure, so it's not a pipe dream.
It did include photorealistic coloring of the material itself, so no paint needed.

I was kind of surprised to learn that my Saeko figure goes for 200-300 bucks on Ebay

Ebay prices aren't realistic. It's serious price gouging and much of it does not sell at the set prices, save when people who don't know better stumble across it and think there are no other options. Most collectors will buy through Japanese stores like Mandarake or use proxies to hunt figures down, which rarely costs even half ebay listed prices.

I was disappointed by this, I ordered Yune and Erio together expecting them this month but instead Yune is delayed until March, which is a month I have six scale figures in, so with exchange and shipping it's going to cost quite a lot.

Yeah, Soniko is absolutely one example of cute AND sexy. It's also in my opinion the best game company mascot ever.

I liked her design so much I have preordered that figure of hers
