I still like it but every now and then the axe falls off.i'm having the same issue. Unfortunately I've emailed goodsmile and they say it's just a production limitation on all the figures and they can't help.

So great that she's getting much deserved figures now but her mouth is so bad imo. No teeth , fangs ? Her noted wicked smile, that sweet smile that makes merchants crumble and their tightly wrapped purses loosen , I want it. Am I asking for the impossible? T.T

franjandar (4 hours ago) #27383133I'd have to agree with you, I am willing to pay must prices, but for some figures I can not afford to buy them and I mean that quite litarely. The example I gave (item #464658) in the blog is an example of "I litarely can't affors this figure". So far every single figure that I've imported form Japan was caught by customs (yes, even the single nendoroids), that figure would definitly get caught by customs, not to mention that they charge you the import costs inclusing the price that shipping was. All of that would make that figure cost around 300 euros or even more, that price is somthing I cannot afford in one month, there's always something that goes wrong or something that breaks which I have to pay a huge amount of money for to get that object or thing repared.
Just this month I had to pay 900 euro's to fix my roof, I had to pay all that money for a mistake the builders of this house made, they used a material on my house that is now illegal, it was a very cheap material. I had to fully pay those 900 euro's because of a shitty contract ending. Eitherway what I had to pay to repair my roof brought me in the minuses for the month, luckily with my pay check coming in soon I can pay that debt. But imagine this situation with a very expensive figure coming in that was caught by customs, that would just be impossible for me to pay, and the thing is that every month something breaks, even if it's just an electronic that I don't have to imediatly get a replacment for, I eventually would have to get a replacement.
To shorten the point I'm trying to make here: I can't afford all to expensive figures (ones that would end up costing 300 euros incl. import tax), since I also have to have money for other unexpected things, for instince: electronics breaking, the roof leaking, injuries etc.


You have my 100% understanding ;; I totally agree with you. Sometimes you just cant afford a figure and with the prices going up there will be more and more figures that are impossible to get.

I really feel with you, since all my figures are getting caught by the freaking customs as well. Everytime I read that Nendoroids or packages from AmiAmi doesn't get caught Im like... "In which universe do I live?" xD" and I never use EMS. I always use SAL.

And of course you have to be prepared for this stuff - things that can break, some freaking debts that suddenly come and eat the money for the figure you have pre-ordered and putted aside. It can always happen. So even if one is willing to pay 300€ (which IS really much after all!)... its still sometimes not possible. I mean most of us live on our own - and that means things can happen, things we have no control over, just like that you have mentioned.

(I really feel with you *hugs* 900€ is freaking much for mistake that wasn't your fault!)

I don't know why but the quotation function does not work for me at the moment... Or maybe I am still not unterstanding the new MFC :P

Ahhh ok! Will I need to camp to get her? I might still be at university at that time of the day >__<
And do you know if HMO takes paypal as well? The FAQ on their website is a bit lacking informationwise but at least I saw that preoders require deposit.

Another alternative of going for her could be that you pay/order her and use my adress in the end (forwarding service :P) but I am not sure if their service allows that...

And to remind you... Don't forget to calculate custom charges in the price. I will have to get that one from custom office for sure =___= xD

Aimaileafy (4 hours ago) #27382309Yeah, price-figures are getting better and better those days. They really stand the competition against scales - your examples are excellent.
Normally I dont think that figures are over-priced and I am mostly willing to pay their price and pay the original price instead of the after market price, especially if I like the character/series and I want to support it. GSC mostly have good prices and Kotobukiya as well. Figures like GSCs Stars Bless You may be expensive (especially with customs and shippment) but they are art-objects in my eyes - worth the price. There is so much thought going into one figure; the artists, the sculptor, the colors, the box... everything. There is a lot of work behind every figure!
But in the end I think its up to one self to decide whether a figure is over-priced or not! Are Bandais (and Megahouse...) shitty and way to small Sailor Moon figures overpriced? HELL YES THEY ARE. Am I paying the price? Totally.

I'd have to agree with you, I am willing to pay must prices, but for some figures I can not afford to buy them and I mean that quite litarely.

heebjeeb (9 hours ago) #27376238Prices are getting so high I feel like I'd rather just go back to BJDs lol. I haven't preordered any figures for awhile because they're so damn expensive now too, like the FMA and KHR scales
which I would have liked to get, but can't justify. The sweet spot for buying a (relatively plain) figure to me is $60-$80, and up to $100 for one I really want. Above that I feel like I'm being taken advantage of.


Funny you mention BJD, I'm starting to get into them after a very long time of not being able to justify the price. But I'm spending so much on figures, that I may as well put that towards something I can customize completely.

Esse ano está muito atípico, está havendo um excesso de Parcels taxados e, em contrapartida, muitos Small Packet estão sendo liberados.
Será que a estratégia agora é ir de Curitiba, cansar de esperar, mas ter maior número de itens liberados?

One question is though, at what point will the price inflation be so high that figures get so over priced that collecting becomes something the rich can ony do? I mean I have an average income and if the inflation is going to continue this fast, then I have to stop collecting at one point, which I absolutly son't want to do.



I really fear that moment... but these thoughts are justified, I guess. In general, another thing you have said is correct: the US-Collectors are defiantly in a better situation then us who live Europe. Customs and of course shipping makes buying some figures impossible - even if NY did make it a little bit better.

agcpictures (18 hours ago) #27361564Nice! Guess the show is so old now that they've really come down in price. Where'd you find her?
And wtf, guess I'll have to add that one when I get a chance. Thanks for the heads up!


I wonder how many Midori CM's produced XD. It's a pleasure contribute to increase the DB, this is my main source of info regarging figure collection.

Anyway I found her on Mandarake, there are also some other versions, ranging from 800 to 1800 yen.
