adrikynadrikyn I'm in hunter x hunter hell


Hello! My name's Val! I've been collecting for a few years now and recently I've decided to be more strict for my collecting. I'm trying to cut down on the figures I buy as well as the amount of shows I buy from. I mostly focus on collecting from things I know I'll always love.

I'm also an artist and like to draw some weird, cute, colorful, and creepy things. Two of biggest inspirations are Junko Mizuno and Manglo/Yukaman. Besides drawing I also like anime, manga, and videogames. There's too many to name so I'll just link my MAL account and my Backloggery account!

This year I'm going to start studying Japanese! I've taken German before and gotten a decent hold of it, but it's just never had much practical use or daily exposure for me, even when I was buying German comic books. Plus all the difference tenses were a nightmare... But I know I can do it if I put my mind to it, so my goal by the end of the year is to be able to struggle through some of my Japanese comics/guidebooks with the help of dictionaries.

adrikyn (1 month ago) #2715193He's probably as big (and heavy) as my Koto DMC3 Dante figure then, wow. He cost about the same to ship too...... WUUUUhh I would love to put them next to each other!! Life isn't fair... ;_;You'll get one someday, I'm sure! And UGHHH I want those Koto DMC figs so much. I don't even wanna know how much they cost now.

adrikyn (1 month ago) #2715184Yeah it's just funny because the other figures I had that cost that much to ship just had GIGANTIC boxes. Though I imagine Raiden is a lot bigger in person than I imagine he'd be.
He's gotta be heavy with all those cyborg parts right. It's canon!
Definitely!! Raiden, you're going on an electrolyte diet.
My friends that have gotten him say he's like a foot tall. Dat's huge. Raiden's box looks relatively small based on his pose? Like... It looks like he fits in there pretty snugly.

adrikyn (1 month ago) #2709877Oh man, that's nice... I'll def. keep a look out for Nakano store sales then, thanks for the info *_*
Also that's a lot for shipping! That's a little less or around what I paid (EMS) for my three BRS scales (each). That makes me wonder how big his box is, because theirs' were HUGE. I can't believe that puts him at like 20k? D: yikes... At least the exchange rate is in your favour.
Well, he's 1/6 scale + he's got the corpse at his base so he's bound to weigh a lot. I'm not completely surprised by it, mostly just laughing cause he's a fatass. His box looked pretty compact? He looks like he takes up most of the room in it.

Yw! I wanna go looking on Manda but I shouldn't since I just bought Raiden. OTZ

adrikyn (1 month ago) #2705942Their hyperlinks must not be updated yet or something, but oohh.. a watch list. I'm just gonna bookmark the search term for now but '_' nice
What's DHL anyway?
Yeah, in true Manda style it's still far from fully functional. I don't think you can bookmark search terms on the new site, actually, cuz of how it works. But the watch list is really nice IMO since even if that particular item sells out, I think it will still stay there so I know that at one point I was looking for it. It's also really useful for if you're putting together an order and aren't sure what all you want to buy yet- I just throw it all in my watch list so I can sort through it and make a decision.

DHL is another shipping service. It's about as fast as EMS and usually it's more expensive, but the Nakano store has some sort of deal going on with DHL to where it's pretty affordable. I had a Nendoroid and some doujin shipped to me for like 1300 yen??? I think they were charging 2800~ish for EMS and like 1100 for SAL so HELL YEAH I took the DHL. So now when I buy from Manda I check Nakano first.

Raiden's fat ass wound up being 4100 yen to ship. He's going on a diet ;A;
