Looks like I'm getting my refund directly from Backerkit. In the e-mail they asked for either a Paypal account, or for any fees related to bank transfers to be payed by the backer, neither of which was acceptable to me (like I mentioned here before). So I complained, but I also contacted Backerkit directly, and it looks like I'm getting my refund the way I want it anyway. Will update when I actually have my 200 dollars back.

The "otaku" industry may be dominantly male, but I see a lot of female collectors here on MFC and many collect female figures too. My modest ecchi collection is tiny compared to some girl's collections that I've seen.

characters like super sonico appear in like anyone's collection even tho she feels like shes only targeted to male

besides they seem to sell to straight interests only since when it comes to male figures and male audience there are not really any muscled characters that many guys seem to desire
bishounen never seems prefered by guys
tho maybe the touken ranbu ufotable anime can make some changes in that

And yes, that includes Kirito and Araragi and basically every shounen MC ever

what you say feels accurate except that kirito and araragi are more harem protagonist than that they are shounen characters to me
since a part of their thing is girls sticking onto them
and alot of the girls are not relateable either
they tend to be a mixture of perfectness and things that might be commonly relatable

Some figures are exclusives which means they will only be sold at certain retailers online or at events. For those you either have to buy from the official retailer, or use a site like Nippon-Yassan or Big In Japan which acts as a proxy etc. and procures the exclusives you want.

AmiAmi can get exclusives in the pre-owned section, but unless a figure is exclusive to AmiAmi (like Alter's Lalas) they won't sell new or preorders of the figure.

Also on a side note, shop questions are forbidden in the blog section, so beware that this may get deleted. Check out the club/forum linked below if that happens.

ShineWing (17 hours ago) #18567289Different colour lights? I was thinking blue or green. How do I choose?

I can't help with that I'm afraid but according to the blog about her you may have paint a clear one pink or purple to produce the same light that you see in her pics. Honestly that's even more of a pain, I still can't see why these were not integrated into the figure rather as a buy separate but oh well can't keep moaning, I ordered a clear and a red. I don't plan to do too much with the light up option anyway as I want her for my maid section, so she will displayed as cheerful Rem.

I personally would love to see more quality male figures of characters I like; however, right now the vast majority are of characters I've never heard of from series like Touken Ranbu which I've never watched/played/etc.. Quality is another issue I've seen. Perhaps it's due to lack of experience producing male figures, but female ones generally get more attention to detail etc. (although some figures have bad QC/attention to detail regardless). If a company I liked made RRRRRRGI I would preorder him instantly. Same goes for some others I like.

The "otaku" industry may be dominantly male, but I see a lot of female collectors here on MFC and many collect female figures too. My modest ecchi collection is tiny compared to some girl's collections that I've seen.

BloodyEarth (4 days ago) #18461895I am looking forward to that day happening. They might make Megumi this summer, I suppose. My fingers are crossed for that.

Happy already with her figures that I am excited how Alter would blow us away with their sculpt, if they indeed plan to make one of her and the rest of the Saekano girls.

Selling her brand new and sealed. Figure box does has some dents and tears but the figure itself is in mint condition. :)

I don't think male characters are less liked than female characters. It's just that most of the recently announced male characters seem to be aimed at a very specific demographic of buyers, namely female fans of otome-games and VNs.
There's really nothing wrong with that, especially since female characters have been getting the lewd / fanservice treatment probably since right from the start when figurine merch sales became a thing.
It's probably just hard for some to adjust to that, and I wouldn't even exclude myself there. Tbh just recently I shook my head at a potd being a male figure butt meme.

Either way, I hope this is just the first step in making male figures more wide-spread and hopefully one day we will get more figures like item #221042 in an even higher quality (sorry Koto, but your QC just didn't cut it there)

Finally, I'm still hoping for the paradigm shift in anime where hollow self-insert MCs vanish and get replaced by actual relatable characters but that's probably wishful thinking on my part. Unfortunately that also means most of these MCs will never get a decent figure which is a shame but not something that will ever change.
And yes, that includes Kirito and Araragi and basically every shounen MC ever
