The game she appeared in is a sequeal to the original series and it has no proper anime adaption yet.

I want this another blood figure! But it's way too expensive for me.
Beside Al and Elsa, she is my favor character in Demonbane. I just can't resist Loli+2sideup

I'm already feeling the pinch. My Rei figure from Highschool of the Dead went from $67.00 US dollars to a little over $80.00 dollars in under a month. And who knows what the price will be in May when it ships. Thank you US dollar losing it's value everyday.

Luckily I can afford it, so I'm not too worried I'm not going to cry over a few bucks. At least most goods in my country are still the same so I'm set.

Those Higurashi figures are very cool. I was completely taken in by that series. I got the game last week and have been going through the first part with the english patch. I'd love to have those.

Question about them: They're listed as trading figures and descriptions say they come in "Display Box of 8." Does that mean you get a random assortment of the heads? Would you have to buy multiple boxes, or find someone to trade with, to get them all?

There isn't, at least not for Figures.

my personal favorite is Hobbylinkjapan http://www.hlj.com/top/Fig

I consider them more customer service friendly then hobbysearch

My reciept for the reservation of Max's 1/8 Another Blood.
All in all cheaper than I thought it will be. The 7% GST should be a dead giveaway to my location, lol. Figure my location out and the price of this figure will be dirt cheap when you convert my currency to US Dollars, even at it's current low point.

Well Goods and Services Tax at 7% I'm guessing SGD which is 1.4 to 1 US dollar.

So about $124.60 US dollars what you paid after discount.

But that's after converting SGD which is stronger than the US dollar. Also SGD is only 70 yen to 1 SGD so basically if you look at as a japanese product in their currency it's the same price in both countries.

But for me minus shipping and no tax for me to order it straight from japan. As long as the dollar doesn't keep falling the same figure is $71.00 US, plus say $10.00-$20.00 for shipping.

chison The receipt isn't to hard to read it's not from HLJ if that's what's confusing you.

Figure $147.00 US
Discount -$22.40 US (guessing preorder perk)
Subtotal $124.60 US
GST 7% (Goods and Services Tax) Sales Tax $8.15 US
Grand Total $132.75 US
Cash Deposit (paid a portion of it up front) $42.00 US

Remaining Balance $90.75 US

Shipping from HLJ with SAL is really cheap.
I bought the 3 Sky Girls MMS last month
http://www.hlj.com/product/KNM13853
http://www.hlj.com/product/KNM13854
http://www.hlj.com/product/KNM13855


Only 880 Yen (around US$9) shipped to Canada.

SAL is really cheap, but EMS is another story.

I always use EMS, it is expensive but less then if your LE figures winds 3 months late and in 3 different pieces.

Another point for HLJ, you can have them ship to your work address even through your work zip code and credit card zip don't match. Unlike Hobbysearch which was completely pain becuase you want to ship the items somewhere other then your home address.

XD...good question
i would guess that is something to do with the sig that he used

斬魔大聖 figures seems to be not match the origiral artist level,not as rich .w. do you think?

Xellos-_^
would you mind to give one or two exapmple of how much does it cost you with EMS?
just see what to expect.

i know how it felt to wait a month"i am waiting for my book"(but actually,is when their searching for suppiler take up a month),and item lost without payback give me the most damage


anyway,the figure world are that fast,lots and lots of waiting involve...
