Hey guys I wonder if anyone of you can help me.

I've been searching really long for this figure but I can't seem to find it.

Does anyone have an idea where i could get it? I've googled sites for anime figures but none of the popular sites seem to have it, also the related sites in the link above also aren't helpful. So I've been thinking of searching for sites from japan but i can't read or write japanese so I'm having trouble getting any useful results from google

If anyone could give me some starting point I could probably work my way through with translaters but as I dont know japanese I think im probably going about googling this figure the wrong way.

One reason why this figure is hard to find: this is a garage kit, meaning it won't be available at most places that offer anime figures.

Outside of trying eBay, that's pretty much the only piece of advice that I can offer.

Marvie2 I looked and their is no official figures for that character from that series that you are looking for it's not a super popular series. That's a garage kit if you don't know that is a resin model kit you have to assemble and paint yourself. Plus that's a limited kit so not too many are around even if you have the talent to paint it like a professional. I don't do garage kits because it's just way out of my league and a waste of money if it doesn't look perfect.

It isn't like it isn't a super popular series (given it is Key, so). The problem is due to how next to no manufacters seem to risk themselves with Key brand, most likely due to the royalties they are asking (similar to how very few nintendo characters are made to figures by figure manufacter, and that's only recently with Samus and Link).

The "usual" place for GK would be: http://www.e2046.com/
That said, you better check it often, as GK kits are, as already stated, quite limited in stocks.

Thanks for clarifying! I'm pretty new to anime figures but now it makes sense (and also some other things that I've been wondering about).

Guess I'll just have to be on the lookout from now on

My Maria and Kobato arrived today. <3 They sit nicely next to my Kannagi crew;



Though I forgot to get a picture of both together. Maybe tomorrow.

I was wondering. Did anyone here order a GK from that site yet? How good is their delivery service? How much do they usually charge? And how fast do they deliver?
I really want to know since I just found the next perfect project I want to do.

I've ordered a few of their "Gathering" prepainted GKs, which have all been excellent quality, the packaging the figure comes in is excellent, and the shipping also one of the best I've seen, both in safety of the packing, and the speed. Prices are reasonable, too. I imagine actual kits would be cheaper than complete figures to ship, too, since they're probably smaller.

Just keep in mind they -are- bootlegs, technically, since they recast official GKs. But for figures that are unlikely to get "real" releases, it's a perfectly valid option. If you get a kit, it's not going to be any different to the original, and the paint quality (a usual failing of bootlegs) is entirely up to you. Though I've only bought their prepainted ones, and their painters are better than some "real" figures by a good margin, so I don't feel slighted at all.

I won't be going for the pre-painted ones. I'm more interested in getting the unpainted garage kits. It's good to hear that they are a reliable retailer. I'll be saving for that Yukari Yakumo resin kit they have for now. And it won't be long till I get to grab her.

I've ordered from them six times (4 unpainted, 2 painted). Never had any issues with them, other than being a bit quirky (english not first language methinks). They usually require a deposit on pre-orders to show you're serious

Just reshuffled some shelving a little. I am somewhat disappointed Maria and Kobato are larger than the Kannagi girls despite both supposedly being 1/7, but they still look nice together, anyway.

She's just to the right of Eila (on the top right). This wasn't a shot of the whole shelf. Mostly just highlighting Maria+Kobato, and Kannagimimi. I do need to reshuffle my shelves further to try to keep all my kemono characters together, I think. All the different scale disparities are upsetting, though.

I just got 3 new figmas!
Spoiler for :


I was surprised that I got my Chara Hobby exclusive Homura very quick compared to my Mami. I don't know how/why Homura passed through customs so quick and why Mami took months to get processed. At least I still was able to acquire her and they ended getting sent to me at the same time. As for BRS, I bought it from a fellow collector who ended up having 2 of 'em and decided to sell one.

I'm gonna have a blast playing around with them! Next possible purchases:
1. AGP Laura Bodewig
2. Figma Labrys
3. Figma Yuzuriha Inori

I want a dollfie. But there are many reasons I don't have any dolls, though I have almost caved and bought a pureneemo, still yet to commit to any. I'd really live a 1/3 doll though.
