Roflmao, I'm so sorry to hear that Ryus; I know how annoying it is when the UPS and delivery guys can't seem to wait 5 seconds for someone to show up -_-.

The heat-wave however is a reasonable excuse - you live in DC, and that's supposed to be the hottest place in the country right now :O.

Maybe he'll redeliver tomorrow and actually do his job this time.
Just an FYI, most packages coming from over seas usually require a signature. It's typical protocol, especially in Asian countries. It has to be certified or it doesn't leave the country.

Personally, I just sign the slip and take a quick trip to the post office. That will be the quickest way in getting the package.

Only mid 90's (F)... national map shows someplace live Atlanta and Arizona being slightly hotter temp wise. Even with the heat index though DC isn't the hottest (but up there)... Georgia seems to be #1 (lucky them ).

Normally, I would but the slip says it won't be brought back to the local post office until after 5pm and the local post office closes its doors at 5pm (and tomorrow they close at 2pm). They're cutting their hours for budget reasons... I'm not used to this small local branch post offices. I used to live next to one of the major hubs open till 9pm.

If I don't get it tomorrow I will pick up it from the post office on Monday.

Show up at 4:45pm, the postal worker would have returned by then and you should be able to pick it up.

Sorry for answering a month late, but, if you're still looking...

Ah yes - the Megahouse Clare excellent model. It is rather a nice one. I think Megahouse has made a second batch some time ago (the first batch sold out in preorders 2 months before the release date).

ebay has some stuff - but there are an insane amount of counterfeits on it - especially for that Clare figure. Basically, if you have the stand with the red letters spelling out Claymore on the base, it's a fake. I'd be very weary of getting one of those from ebay.

The best place I found for hard to find anime/manga stuff is yahoo auctions japan : auctions.yahoo.co.jp
Usually the sellers only ship to japan addresses...
*BUT*
If you don't live in japan, and don't mind paying the premium on the commission fees and double shipping charges, there is a company http://www.rinkya.com/ that allows you to buy from japanese online stores (including yahoo auctions), get it shipped to them, and then send it off to you. It's a bit costly, but if you need any rare and out of print anime/manga stuffs, then it's probably your best bet.

Don't ruin your book man. Let someone else do it, I'm sure someone will.

Take some digital pictures of the inside though. I want to see what it looks like. I am thinking of getting it, I never bought an artbook before so I am clueless.

Did just that actually and I posted them on the image thread without thinking a few days ago... sorry.

Just a sampling of what's in the book...

Spoiler for Small Sampling of the Claymore Memorabilia book:


I gotta admit even though I've seen most of these pics... the resolution of them in the artbook is great. Even better is the fact that none of the images have text all over them, so it's nothing but ART! Plus it feels great owning a real copy.

Some of the designs look strange. I guess they are early concepts or something.

And you can probably download the drivers and all from the manufacturer website. I never use the CD that comes with it since there is often a new version, not to mention updates with fixes.

Thanks so much for that.
The art really looks amazing. Oh how I wish I could own it as well.
Some images don't really look very Claymore like but that doesn't make them any less superb.

And is that Riful on page 4 with normal coloured hair or it just looks like her?

Do you mean the image with the red background... yeah that's Riful. If you notice her arm is splitting as if she is using her arms to attack someone with her ribbon tentacle blade. Likely implying that's her grabbing Jean.

A lot of the images in the artbook appears to be concept art for characters and/or the inspiration behind them. So not all of it looks like stuff from Claymore but with 90% of those art works you can tell right way whom it was a concept of. Personally I find it really neat

--------

I just went through the digital file and there is some stuff missing
One image of Clare from page 5 of the artbook
Spoiler for pic:

2 images (one being the cover of volume 7) pages 54 and 55 of the art book
Spoiler for 2 pics:

1 double page image (being the colored page included in ch 100) pages 70 and 71 of the art book
Spoiler for pic:

2 images missing (being Raphaela and Luciela standing back to back, and awakened Jean (so nudity), both B&W) pages 94 and 95 of the artbook
Spoiler for pic - nudity (awakened Jean):

and finally a concept art piece (reminds me of Priscilla) being page 127 of the artbook.
Spoiler for pic:


Sorry for the image quality my camera is just a phone camera Good news is none are new pics and have been floating around in one form or another for some time now.

I actually meant the one in that file that says 004 (left side) - No idea if that is actually the real page number (seriously doubt that )and the background is kind of more light orange or yellowish . You have the original though so you should know best The girl is kind of nude ( might narrow them down a bit I guees ) The eyes and mouth seem similar to Riful's though they have a different colur and the hair is a bit more pointy and again a different colour. She also looks kind of more *cough* developed.
Basically that's not really her but yet it looks really similar. I think she is holding a Claymore though.

The concept ones are great. Personally I love concept art and how a character evloves to end up looking the way it does.

Oh and while I would love good scans of these awesome images I'd advise you not to even try scaning. You'll probably ruin it if you do it. I'll send AFs after you if you do it (yeah that sounded funnier in my mind)

And thanks for the new pics
