OMG, just seen the first IS figure: 1/10 Houki Shinonono Complete Figure [Media Factory]

Just seen this: http://www.amiami.jp/shop/?set=engli...e_display.html

Also at HLJ: https://secure.hlj.com/product/MDF10431

There is also these: http://www.amiami.jp/shop/?set=engli...e_display.html

Yay, there is also new Bamboo Blade figures: https://secure.hlj.com/product/CLY30142 and lastly there is a new Freezing figure: https://secure.hlj.com/product/MDF10517

Not really a fan of the Freezing figure... too naked for me, be nice to see one in their uniforms and weapon. I love Bamboo Blade but the figure doesn't really do much for me as well and £68 (GPB) is way too high for that figure, it's too basic.

Hmm, some nice figures all together but expensive to keep up. :s

Well, I Pre-ordered the 1/10 Houki Shinonono Complete Figure from HLJ. Ugh, dread to think what else is coming... am finding it hard to resist clicking that Pre-order button.

New Saber Lily figure by Gift;



I'm in love...



And does anyone know if there are going to be any other Sora no Woto figures? I was saddened to see the Kotobukiya Kanata figure canned before release.

There are some flying around, for example HLJ has some.

http://www.hlj.com/scripts/hljlist?SeriesID=4329&Dis=2

What is annoying is that they have 4 of the girls in stock but Kureha is discontinued as well as Kanata standing up.

MyAnimeFigure... doesn't even have a listing for So Ro No Wo To or Sora No Woto how ever it pleases you to spell it.

Been looking at other sites too, can't seem to find many.

Cheers mate. I'm more interested in something by GSC or Alter, etc.

I'd love a decent figure of Kanata in her standard fatigues just playing the bugle.

Same, would also love the tank model too.

Just seen something that really excited me over at Amiami.jp.

Sorano Otoshimono f (forte) 1/6 Nymph Complete Figure [Plum]



Amiami.jp/Item

Not bad for 5,450 yen, but am going to wait a little and hope she ends up on Hobby Frontier or at HLJ before I Pre-order her.

Starting to worry about the P&P now, since I have few Pre-orders at these two websites.

Does anyone know why Anime towels are so bloody expensive? It's like they all cost around £50-60 (GBP) each, I think that's crazy. Shouldn't cost no more then £20 or £30 (GBP) :/

Darn it!! This figure, I guess:


That majorly sucks, it was so beautifully made. And it's rare when you get a good figurine of a cute girl in military uniform that is actually modest.

Let me guess why: low BD sales, huh? Many of us would buy an excellent figurine even if we aren't fans of a series, but it seems we're in the tiny minority.

I have the black version of battle Sakuya <3 and that original Yuyu; prefer her to the recolour.

Sik-07, I really like the 3 girls on the left of that picture, the girl infront and two at the back.

My small collection is going to be this below. I put in a Pre-order for the 1/6 Nymph PVC figure today.

Yagyu Jubei
1/7 Miku Hatsune Tony Ver. PVC
Vocaloid EX Figure: Luka Megurine
Sanada Yukimura Version 2.0
Goto Matabei
1/8 Tenshi PVC
figma Kirino Kousaka
1/10 Houki Shinonono
1/6 Nymph PVC

The Yagyu Jubie was my first figure to arrive and for me to hold and open, but she was the second figure that I brought. The Hatsune Miku and Luka Megurine was the first.

Then came Sanada and Goto and the others followed soon after.

I'm hoping to order 1/8 Yuri PVC from HLJ in March. Also would like the Sore No Woto figures from HLJ. Lastly am on the look out for the ARIA figures, really want them but they cost an easy £100+ each.

Buying my display case tomorrow so everything should be set!

I'm quite stuck right now.

If you can't tell by my presence here, I'm an avid anime fan. There's nothing anime I don't truly hate, besides occasional thing.

So, what would be stopping me from buying an anime figurine/figma/nendoroid/etc right now?

Well, a couple things:

1) What do I do with them?
2) They seem to be quite expensive
3) Parents would find it pointless

I sometimes feel like I really want one, just one at the very least, yet I always forget about it.
What is it about these figures that makes people buy them? Collectibles, just for the shelf? That's all I can think of, yet for some reason I feel I want one. I don't get it.
Unless I can find something more to it than becoming a nick-knack, I don't see any point in getting one, no matter my desire.

Can someone help me resolve this? Is there anything better about them that I'm missing? Do they sell for considerably more later on?
HELP.

So, there is no reason to buy one besides satisfying your id?

Nope.

Unless it means a better-functioning home, it isn't purchased.

Well, I don't know about why anyone else buys them, but I can say why I do.

It's pretty simple for the statues. I like things that either look completely bad-ass, or really cute. That's it. No real point other than I like the way they look. I don't really think much a of a point is necessary, either. I mean, do people really have a specific "point" in mind when they hang a painting on the wall, other than it looking good?

The figmas / revoltech / other posable figure types are little different, because I'll set up small light studios and take pictures of them in "scenes" and post them in my web galleries. Yeah, I guess that seems a little obsessive, but it's fun, and it's similar to drawing (in a way). Of course, even that's just playing around, I suppose, so it's just me having fun.

I don't ever really think about how much they're going to be worth later on, like collectibles, or anything. I figure if I wanted an investment, I'd by stocks and bonds, not toys and dolls.

You could argue that they can appreciate in value (only certain figures, really) so it's a valid collection. At least two of my figures are worth 3x what I paid for them now. Possibly more, depends on buyers etc.

Or you can just tell them it's figures or crack cocaine. Their choice.

I buy them for a few reasons.

I love Anime
I buy them because they look awesome, this fits in with the first reason
I buy them to express myself

I was tempted to get her, but it's likely she'd be seized by customs in this country.

Me too, she's on a wish list, but there are other figures I want more. She is really nice through, I like it.

What country you from for something like that to happen?

Also... why can't I view your profile. -_-

Australia, where lolis or sexualised depictions of anybody that MAY be under 16 is considered child porn.

What profile?
