I'll put it on the list. XD

So I gather the figure will come with two heads and two right arms?

It's about dam time Mio gets a figure I guess they saved the best for last.

But it's going to be awhile Minna doesn't come out until Sept at least it gives me time before I have to pay, definitely going to buy her.

This is a "figure" thread so I figured this ought to belong.

Most of you figure fans, I'm assuming, collect mascots too, right? Cute little plastic chibis for your cellphone, backpack/handbag?

If so, you've probably realized how filthy they can get after a while.

Did you know you can clean them up with nail polish remover?

YES, that's right! All you need is some Q-tips. Pour a little of the solution into a small container, dip your Q-tip in and lightly scrub the chibi and watch the dirt disappear!

I found this out yesterday and was ecstatic. Now all my little chibis look BRAND-NEW! Horray.

Just be careful not to breathe in the nail polish stuff. The acetone will make you gag.

I would be careful if it's painted or depending if it's molded plastic. If the the chemicals are to harsh it will eat through the paint.

As long as it's not water salable paint rubbing alcohol works great and drys fast with air.

Or to be safe little diluted dish washing soap and water on a Q-tip shouldn't harm most and is probably the safest just use a little elbow grease.

Would love to put a little chibi mascot on my smart phone it has a lanyard but I'm afraid one day it will land against the glass, and I bump to hard into something and bam it presses into the glass and now their is a crack in my 600 buck phone. Can't risk it.

Yes, care is needed, thus I did type "lightly scrub". It is possible for the paint to come off if you scrub too hard.

Didn't think about rubbing alcohol....hmmm

Tried bar soap but that didn't work at all.

I wouldn't really worry about cracking the phone screen. I think most mascots are rubber nowadays and probably couldn't damage the phone. I have one on my phone but it's still one of those ancient flip phones so no danger there....

I fixed I-phones for a bit and it and other smart phones, the glass can crack if you hit it hard enough or put enough pressure on the glass.

Basically I rest the glass part against my thigh so that the back of the phone sticks out so if bump into something it will hit the harder back cover. And the flat glass screen pushes against my leg causing no damage.

Now a hard fall on a good hard surface is another story.

I also keep the pocket with my phone empty of all other things so that I don't run the risk of anything falling in between the glass part and my leg and scratching/breaking the glass. Can't scratch the back cover it has a protective cover on it.

A few times I almost put my keys in the same pocket as the phone man did I get lucky.

I just drop them in a bucket of clean water - like all my trading figs - let them soak for a while, then wipe them of with a soft brush


Alter's Black Hanekawa is up for pre-order too

I ordered her as soon as she went up. <3 I'm not thrilled with the face, at least from certain angles... but given my Griffon collection, I can overlook faces for a gorgeous sculpt.

She's really nice, I love the hair and pose, also how her breasts are shown with her baggy shirt is very nice. Looking closer the face could be a lot better, would like to PO her, but we have to see.

This came up on PO a week or two ago, really like the figure, love how the tail implys something naughty as how it wraps around her legs and comes under her bum.



My Sorano Otoshimono f (forte) 1/6 Nymph Complete Figure[Plum] is on it's way from AmiAmi, can't wait to get it!

Chiu_fan, crack them open and post some pictures! xD

Some really nice figures coming up for K-On and Freezing.

Would like to PO both, but for K-On, I want the band first, so guess will have to give this one a miss and the Freezing figure, will give that a miss too. I wish they hurry up and do one in her School Uniform damn it, there are enough naked looking girl figures as it is, but I wouldn't say no to her.

The Freezing figure looks nice and is huge 1/4 scale but I hate how she never wore or looks good in fishnet stockings.

And we finally get a high end Working!! figure and it's f-ing Aoi not Popura wtf is up with the Japanese. No brains in their head if it was the tiny/cute Popura I would buy 2 of them right now.

24. Prize Fair

Luckily, Sega continues to release their Strike Witches figures and I'm more than happy with this line. I couldn't afford Kotobukiya/Alter for all of them

Banpresto's Yukata C.C. is gorgeous * . * When will they introduce the Kallen one I wonder?

And finally Nana Ús Momo figures. Too bad Furyu's making them and that's a really bad sign. Their figures are usually made out of low quality PVC (leaners!) and the final sculpts are ugly as hell. I'll probably pass
