$70?


All 4


All 4 again


Kagami Miku


Yoko


Snow Miku


Saber Lily


Got all 4 with $32 (USD, note amount on photo is not in USD). Lovely isn't it, especially that Snow Miku....and they are all genuine!

DO TELL YOUR SECRETS

Ended up getting this off of ebay for $120:
http://myfigurecollection.net/figure/20882_alleyne

The seller is from Japan, and there doesn't seem to any bootlegs of it, so hopefully I'm safe. I think this is like the last one you can buy anywhere on the internet lol. I didn't like the normal color scheme, but this 2P color scheme is just too awesome.

I really don't know mate, last time I went there there were a few boxes of each things, no idea about any more of those in stock. You know, the price you saw there is the retail price. If you can order by bulk you could get a even lower price, but since I am no trader (and ain't got the cash) I couldn't get more.........

Only one I kind of want is the super saber, cause she's SUPER poseable. That and the Noel one, which hopefully gets an official release outside of the JP special edition =/
Do you mean the Saber Lily you saw above>?

It's getting a re-release later this year. Some places are already taking pre-orders. You HAVE to order from some place like hlj or hobby search japan. You will not find it available in American stores.

Edit: Oh, and just bought this too:
http://myfigurecollection.net/figure/280_blanc_neige

I just love Taka Tony's designs. Also, going to get a LED lighting set today to get some low heat lighting setup on my Detolf XD

@ Olympian No, that Snow Miku is a bootleg. The real one's closed mouth face looks forward.

It looks as if Nendo Saber Lily is a fake, too. But as long as you enjoy your toys, right?

Yeah, $70 for a real, authentic, non-bootleg Miku.

Two questions..

1)Anyone know if there are figurines of ''The Sacred Blacksmith'' ?

2)Is this figurine based on an anime you can identify ?

1)Doesn't seem like it, although I did think I saw a pic of a Lisa figurine in the WF lineup.

2)No idea.

On #2, it's a garage kit, if that helps.

funny how the original Miku costs more than the technically 'limited edition' Snow Miku. missed out on the original release, so consoling myself with the assertion that the Snow ver. looks nicer anyway >_> I mean, it's SHINY

on another note, anyone know of a shop which stocks the metal charms? The only sites I know only ship locally (gamers etc) but proxy shipping is a real bitch and I prefer to avoid it.

What metal charms? I notice your use of "the metal charms".

Yeah, sorry but that Snow Miku is a definitely a bootleg and it wouldn't surprise me if the rest of your loot there are fakes. Let's see...the snowflake design on the box does not look foil stamped, Miku is looking to (her) left, the snowflake printed on her tie is quite bold and far off centre...I also notice she is missing the detail on her collar >< ah...just a few things...

edit: ah..Komari beat me to it

Anyway...Snow Miku finally arrived today...ah she is beautiful!!! Wish I wasn't busy with assignments right now T___T

@Komari: Fuuuu I would never buy (original) Miku nendo at the price she is mostly selling for now...the only reason I bought Snow Miku at $50-ish was that it was impossible for me to get her without a proxy. But it's not a bad price to pay...and she was worth it.

Same here. I had to get her through Rinkya, with their $20 service fee. Ouchies.

I'm maybe thinking cancelling Senjyoghara and Asuka... I already cancelled something once but re-ordered it...
They won't hate me for doing it? Bots are doing it anyway am I right O:?

The reasons that I want to cancel are:
Asuka, currently there is one IRL picture (from a show or whatever) and it isn't promising at all, and I started to like Mari more then Asuka lol

Senjyoughara - For some reason she lost her appeal in my, she's a cool character but I just don't know and it's the most expensive figure in the bunch and there is that line over her head though I know it's for connecting the front and back of the head, it just interrupts.

What do you guys (and girls) have to say?

I've become very active in getting figures lately.

Early in the year I got these 2.

Mabinogi succubus by Goodsmile
Tamaki - Seduction

I picked these two up at the anime convention in town on the weekend. Was lucky to get the last copies of both!

Chiaki Minami Nendoroid
Shiki Garden of Sinners Nendoroid

And over the last month, I've ordered these via 1999.

Black Rock Shooter Nendoroid
Vivio from MGLN by Alter
Mikoto from Railgun by Goodsmile
Rinko Nendoroid
Super Soniko by Orchid Seed
Saber Nendoroid
Nene Nendoroid
Kaneda from Personnel Selection Drop by Orchid Seed

The WF one might be messed up. Alter makes some of the BEST figurines. I don't think they're going to release a sloppy version. As for Senjyoughara, there's lines separating the two pieces for all figurines. You can try putting her higher up so you look at her from below.

Hmm not sure about Asuka but i got a feeling Senjyoughara figure will be quite decent. If your refering to the good smile one :P
I haven't seen alot of photos of it except the front view but by now its a nice figure which i want to get. Don't think there is any figures of her that is as great as that one at the moment. Sequel to bakemonogatari is announced too so it shows that they did well in term of anime. So its possible that if you don't get it, it will be too late unless they do a restock which i doubt.

Do all Kotobukiya Shining Wind figurines have the Licensed by Sega sticker?

I just received http://myfigurecollection.net/figure/280_blanc_neige from an amazon seller for $50 (the correct price) and it doesn't have the Licensed by Sega sticker where it should be.

However, it looks identical to the pics online, with the seal stickers in the correct places, and the box has identical printing style to the 2 other shining wind figurines I have. Anyone know what the fakes look like or if not all Shining Wind figurines have the sticker?

mm good point. I meant the GSC weapon charms. didn't think about there being others lol :/

service fee? I use fromjapan, which charges a 5% fee but when talking about figures (or some doujins which I also sneak.. shh >_> ) that's not alot. $20 seems pretty excessive imo, maybe you should consider changing?

and oh god my shiny shiny new Miku <3333333
