w00t, so happy, just about to buy the Hyakka Ryouran Yagyu Jubei 1/8 from someone in Germany, still boxed up and unopened!

I'm so excited, she be my first figure that I will have in my hands, other then that Hatsune Miku that's coming from Japan!

But wow, I can't believe am spending £105 euros on something like this, I normally buy stuff for my computer!

I would love a set of FMA figurines, but I haven't gotten around to looking for them yet. Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Maes Hughes and Jean Havoc are on the top of my list.

I may buy this Date Masamune (Sengoku Basara) figure once I have some extra money.

Brought my Hyakka Ryouran Yagyu Jubei 1/8 from some cool guy over at MyAnimeFigure last night, total cost was £109 euros which included shipping, should arrive sometime by Monday or Tuesday at the latest.

I have set my sights on my next purchases coming up this year.

Goto Matabei

Sanada Yukimura Version 2.0

They look very hot to me, but shame about the clear bases, wish they could had spiced them up a little.

Also looking to purchase some ARIA figures, since the Anime series is just magical.

The Samurai Girls figures are usually pretty cool, but they are Japan exclusive, will have to pay a third party to get it for you

Those look pretty good . Yukimura's face looks slightly off though . Wonder what are the odds on those figures being delayed (like every other one of Alter's figures )

Oh she is very nice, I like her uniform!

Well I just made my orders for the Sanada Yukimura Version 2.0 and Goto Matabei figures! Ugh, never ordered something that release date is so far ahead in the year.

Yagyu Jubei!

My Yagyu Jubei 1/8 arrived today in the post, only took 3 days to send from Germany.

This is my second figure that I brought but the first one to arrive, she's awesome, going to be unboxing her later!

Sorry for the large images! Maybe I should use spoiler tags or let her glory take up the Internets!









More boxed photos

Lastly, can anyone tell what Anime I have for my background on my computer?

Ah nope!

I give people a clue, the English title is only 4 letters long and the series has lots of water in it!

Hmm... that's more then 4 letters.

So anyone here lucky enough to own any Aria figures?

Really loved the Anime series and just about to finish the 3rd season so setting my sights on buying up the complete 1/6 collection, think this might take a few years due to the high prices of them now. lol

Spoiler for more pics:
Did you have any problems/difficulties posing with the cannon equipped? I had difficulties doing dynamic poses due to the weight of the cannon and the hand unit popping out.

You just gave away the answer!

Question:
Were there any trading figures of So Ra No Wo To characters released? Loved the series and I'm currently planning my next kit building project Volkswagen Kübelwagen. I would love to display it with them.

Haha I know I did, well spotted.

I know HLJ has some small SoRa No WoTo figures, they only small but very nice, they around about £15 each.

I plan on getting 4 of them soon as I have the money.

I want to ask for people in... various countries.

A hot topic in AU recently has been the idea of taxing foreign imports valued under $1000, which currently aren't. ie. if I buy a figure from ami, the yen price I pay them is all I pay. I know that isn't the case in a lot of places (mostly EU?) where you have to pay some sort of duty or tax to pick up the items.

So, anybody subject to this, could you explain how it works for you (and state your country, if you would). I only buy figures from overseas, so figured others who buy figures and have to deal with such import fees would be best to ask about it.

Here in NZ, our import limit before a standard GST tax (15% now) is slapped on is a measly $400NZD (and retailers want to remove even that -_- )

I know that the UK has some rather complicated looking tax process (thanks to this rather informative article xD ) which I think is basically "VATs is payable on goods over £135" with the standard exceptions (alchohol, tobacco etc) but that's about all I know for other countries.

A little. I tend not to bother posing her with the cannon unless I have both stands out.

My K-On Nendo petit's should come tommorow.

This/next month is horrible for me money wise. Nendo Petit K-On, Animal Suit K-On Figure set, Tony Taka Miku, HEM? Edition Miku Nendo, Kirino Nendo, Azusa Nakano 1/8. Think that's it alongside some games I've ordered.

CDJapan is the place where you pay for when you order right? Trying to work out if I've already paid for Azusa.
