LUCKY.

I plan to get that one soon, it's such a beautifully crafted figure.



Just pre-ordered my waifu. I'm so damn happy she got another figure. And this one is just beautiful. Really looking forward to getting it, despite the large price tag.

I hope this is an acceptable place to ask. I've got a problem with GSC's "Akemi Homura - You are not alone" figure. Her left arm was apparently not glued to its connector.
They sent me a replacement, but I hope to salvage the original one. Can anyone suggest a good glue type to use? I was going to use regular superglue otherwise.
The thing is, they didn't just send me an arm, they sent me a replacement main body as well. If I can salvage this arm and get a stand, I can put up a second figure!

Oh yes, GSC sends you a replacement figure if your original purchase is defective and it's not on a replacable part (like for nendoroids, they will just send you an extra arm).

I used standard superglue to fix my Rider figma when her hair broke off, and I had no problem with it ever since

You should get PVC glue. Some standard super glues will melt pvc.

In terms of "figure injury", I tend to use Tacky Glue to make the repairs (although in the case of one of my Nendoroid Miku Hatsune figures, in which one of the hair pieces broke when trying to take off the pieces of plastic inserted between connecting pieces, I used tape to connect the piece back together, although I'm considering looking for another head piece to replace the damaged one).

As another poster have said glue can mess things up if it's the wrong type. Try smearing very small amounts with a toothpick to the area needed if you're going down that way, given glue's tendency to spill out when sandwiched between two parts.

If you have some blu-tack you can try connecting the arm with that as well. Lesser risk involved and you can always remove it if you're unsatisfied with how it looks.

I broke off one of BRS ponytails, and had a friend fix it. He drilled out both parts with a very small drill, and inserted a thin metal rod. Then he used epoxy mixed with black ink for color. Came out very good, you have to look fairly close to see it

Though I try to keep my purchases low tthe last few years (2-3 at most)

This figure (Dark Angel Olivia) might just be on my 'get' list when released (just waiting on how she looks in color)

Thanks to the advice from you guys, I salvaged the arm with superglue.
I figured you deserved to see the results too.

This is the figure using the replacement body and arm GSC sent me.


On the left is the salvaged arm on the original body

GSC wouldn't give me an extra base, so I'm using a Tamashii stand I got some time ago.

And this is the two of them along with the regular edition Homura figure

I couldn't even work out what you'd done until I read back so you must have done a great job with it. ^^

Got some shots of my Snow Miku the other day, thought I'd share them here.

I love the Snow Miku 2013 design. It's very pretty. I really need to get one sometime.

Got myself CuPoche Kirino. Sooo cute!

Eila from Strike Witches. Sega did a good job on this one, especially for 30 bucks.

Some Type Moon petits...

Kuroneko!

Managed to get Madoka Maiko version with cheaper price in one of the convention here.
But I like it better when I put Sayaka's head in the costume.

Looking at the picture, I pretty much agree that the yukata looks better on Sayaka than on Madoka.

God damn, the new Ryougi Shiki figure already sold out at AmiAmi. Hopefully it shows up on Amazon.jp, because there's no way I'm paying the higher rates elsewhere.

Good thing I'm satisfied with the GSC version, so I don't need to bother buying the new one.

Like someone mentioned, Koto's Shiki looks like an adult version of IdolMaster's Makoto with a katana
