There's a few figures I have my eye on, but will have to wait to see how they come out painted. Maou is of particular interest. I like the new Sheryl except her face. A few others will just wait and see I guess.

I'm going for this years Snow Miku, the iDOLM@STER stage set (both of which I just ordered, I hate having to pay in advance but I don't want to miss either of them). (They're up on the goodsmile shop until the 17th)

Will probably go for the Fire Emblem Saria figure as it looks lovely, but I'll wait to see how it looks painted and probably the Isshiki Akane nendo from Vividred Operation.

I've got a load of other nendos pre-ordered. God damn this hobby always eats all my money at the start of the year

Trying to resist buying that Saber, since I don't have anything else in July to combine the shipping with. But it's sooo nice. Must.... resist....

Is combined shipping usually cheaper than shipping solo?

Fuggums, it's a preorder, if need be, cancelling will still be an option for the coming months

@Xion

Yeah, combined packages are usually cheaper than 'loose' items shipped individually

Think of it like, the base price to ship is high, and it increases as you add items. However, it isn't a flat increase per item, and the increase is almost always much lower than the the base shipping. This allows you to allocate the shipping cost among several items, effectively lowering the shipping price from, say, $20 on one item to $10 each on four items. While the overall shipping price is higher, the per item shipping charge is half what it would've cost to ship each item by itself.

Definitely. Try to combine orders into one package per month, it will save you a lot of money especially if you use EMS or some other luxury shipping service (and tbh luxury shipping is kinda a must with non-posable figurines, there's a chance they'll break or get lost and with luxury shipping you'll have good insurance coverage).

The big problem with EMS is that the customs WILL NOTICE it, then will take note of you if you are a regular. Be prepared to be f'ed in the ass if you go big. I am trying SAL since last Spring and it's mostly a 50/50 ratio for customs. And right now, I managed to do away with them three months in a row.

New Asuna PVC but man, they REALLY botched the mouth on this one, and the fact that her nipples appear to be visible through her armor is pretty awkward. I'm still buying it because I collect all things Asuna but I really hope a better PVC comes along soon.

Kotobikuya's Asuna was okay but...lacked anything special. Griffon's is a joke...

Goodsmile, Alter...any chance you have one...(as in normal size, Goodsmile's nendo I have pre-ordered)

Saber dress looks decent but I already own a fair few Sabers. Saber seems to be the new Tamaki in figures - there may be no end to her. Have to draw the line.

Not just Saber but also Miku. It's like there are no characters in their respective franchise beyond those.

Quoted for truth. Miku is basically Good Smile's mascot now. I would actually love to see some less popular JPN Vocaloids as figures, or my dream of a SeeU figure (but no dice because she's Korean?) or Avanna (no chances there).

A lot of other TypeMoon characters get a figure or two. But that's about it. Saber gets a new one every time someone puts her in a new outfit. But not Nero. Poor, poor, Nero. She's stuck with only one that's any good, and even that felt off.

Didn't Max Factory show off a prototype of an Archer Figma like, a forever ago? What ever happened to that?

Don't forget the NGE girls from that never ending line of figures

That's why I still haven't bought a quality Asuka. Why bother, when the next one will be even better?

There was a just that one prototype, they never meant it to go on mass production.
Same with the Steins Gate Okabe and Suzuha figmas

Not sure about figmas (or which Archer you're talking about), but the Fate/Zero figures are slowly becoming available for pre-order. I know Rider and Lancer are available at the moment, and I think I saw some low end Assassin on playasia.

Dammit. Well, Bandai have started making super-posable figures of Fate/ characters (with die-cast metal parts!) so hopefully they'll do Archer. Although those are apparently too big to work with Figmas...

Fate/stay Night Archer. I don't really buy anything noticeably larger than 1/12 scale due to budget and space issues, so there isn't all that much that really strikes my fancy.

Eh, there's still other stuff I already want anyway.
