Okay! I worked out a lot of my dilemmas myself somehow, maybe... except for Racing Miku 2016, haha. I think I'm mostly sticking to MH-Toyshop unless it's limited+exclusive ;n; (No choice in other areas, like with Aniplex+...)

(Starting to shy away from AmiAmi wherever possible though, since they charge so much for shipping orz I was charged almost the same to ship item #287855 from NY as I was charged to ship item #179391 from AmiAmi? Although AmiAmi has exclusives and I already have 4 figures on order from them for May so I'm kind of doomed, I think.)

Are you ordering item #464787? As far as I know he's only on Ami. item #438981 is available just about everywhere, but I haven't seen Taiga ;;a At the very least, I assume if I go for a figure like this, Ami will give me a break and offer RSAL, although I'm wondering if I should wait until his release to see if the price changes a bit (although right now still seems reasonable). TK boys seem to be hitting the sale bin really often, and they're more intricate!

P.S. Or this? item #464652 No PO info right now but I can't imagine it wouldn't be at least 20k and maybe limited+exclusive. I'm not sold on this color scheme but it seems like if I don't order it the aftermarket will be slaughter which is a bad way to buy figures but if I have an interest should I go for it anyway?.

rubyserpent_720 (5 months ago) #14758748What figure are you considering? I can have a look over here for you?
And I don't know about other collectors here but our local shops are usually overpriced, lacks variety and up to date but hella overpriced. I just order from Japanese shops like Amimi, Mandarake, Proxy and sometimes TOM is cheaper (when they were offering free shipping with $100 spent).
Shipping... OTZ


Many, many figures orz Although I think I'm figuring things out and just trying to snag the best deal from whoever ships to the US :x I try for MH-Toyshop most of the time because their preorders are typically around or a little less than retail if I snag one when get posted, but it's hard to find older figures since their selection is so limited... AmiAmi and HobbySearch are better for orders not on MH-Toyshop (although sometimes Anime Island can be cheaper?) but then there's shipping OTL (I heard that AmiAmi charges a lot, and I know for sure I have some figures that will only be EMS...)

TOM is good too, although I can't afford to pay up front for everything, haha...

I'll let you know, I think?

rubyserpent_720 (5 months ago) #14760660Anime/Cons/work/cosplay: お疲れ様でした!
I got my Kenma from Anime-Island (because of free shipping and since they're US based you should check it out?) but release date is Oct 31st... My feels. So you can tell me about his quality lol. I just caved ordered Suga-san (I kinda hope they make Daichi now because OTP reasons...). SUGA TOO CUTE HIS SMILE aaaaaahhhhhh /
and oh myy you have 23 figs on preorder + manga? and you want buy more? the daily struggle of figure collectors がんばります ;A;/
I just started but Discord looks like an edgier version of skype I guess. If you do join up let me know and I can send you invite link for mfc channel? I'm still figuring out how it works @-@ As for twitter (my handle is @rubysp_720. Beware of a lot of touken ranbu/FGO re-tweets よろしく) I use it a lot more now because it's a direct link to a lot of pixiv artists/figure blogs -I wanna see Haikyuu nendo's prototypes asap!-/shops (amiami, koto, gsc, toranoana). My wallet and I are no longer talking lol
I confess I never finished Reborn OTZ Stopped after the Time travel arc (and I think Hetalia craze latched on during that time) but apparently story wise it went downhill or so my cousins says. For figures they only made item #2189 Hibari and item #7061 Mukuro (I WANT TYL PINAPPLE HEAD PLZ).
Comiket & WonFest are so worth going! If only see all the fan energy generated. I think you can run a small city on their enthusiasm alone XD. I recommend going during Winter though (it gets around 2-6 degrees cold though it haven't snowed in the few times I've been there), summer is hideously bad because you're trapped indoors with 100k other people and you do NOT want to go to the toilet (1/2hr waiting line). Wonfest is slightly better in terms of crowd. There's a lot of amazing doujin goods from calendar to dishes and cups (Hummel had a nice heart shaped Shizaya bowl one year) though you want get there early because a lot of them sell out fast OTZ. Speaking of Inumog & Hummel. I think they're working on Tkrb and Ensemble stars respectively (thank the lord I'm not into idol stuff). I'm not familiar with bunbunhanten but a quick search shows they're doing KageHina... (MUST. RESIST)
Ok I'm a weak hypocrite because these are my latest doujins bought. I. MUST. STOP. *headdesk
RPG: oooh. I checked out Phantom of the Kill (though not available in Aus) as well due to the pretty fig but it reminds me of Fire Emblem a LOT lol. And what phone are you on? If you are on ios you can create a Japanese account to download FGO and I'm sure there's a LOT of ways to dl FGO on android *gogogogo SUFFER >:)
And the mobile rpg games are smart. They make waaaaaaaay more from micro-transactions than 1 complete game because we're suckers. I was just going through FGO reddit earlier and one guy pulled $250 worth of Gacha in this current event alone (@_@;)
PS: sent you the Touken Ranbu tutorial (and btw you can set it up on your phone as well you can play on desktop & phone)
PPS: I'm sorry for missing anything and sorry for the massive essay and don't worry about immediate replies. I'm usually super slow in getting back to people so take your time (/ω\)


ALL OF A SUDDEN IT'S BEEN NEARLY A MONTH えええええ

遅くなって ごめんなさい。。。 お世話になりました! I still have my convention next week yet I haven't even gotten around to finishing my cosplay ahhh help me kamisama although I just finished a major presentation on Monday so there's that

I still haven't gotten Kenma myself because he was bundled with Tsuki, who was delayed until the end of October sobsob so skeletons together we be ;;/ But third season is on a roll so I hope Daichi is announced! /yes for OTP reasons

M-my orders have increased... although I'm being slightly more strict with myself since I still have real life to deal with, a-ha. I hope that I make a bit more this winter so I can prepare for all the preorders next year orz And then, maybe pace myself better? The first year of collecting is crazy after all!

ohhh! I know a lot of my gaming friends like it! I'm not very good at being on top of gaming in general but I'll probably make one! I have a twitter handle I never use but I'll add you sometime today! Mine's @bienvenye o/ I love pixiv so I really should be following more artists and being more active. Feels like I'm stretched too thin as is, though (๑•﹏•)⋆* ⁑⋆*

∑(゚∇゚|||) ah, my wallet and I are in a long-distance relationship... (Guess who was weak and bought a bunch of doujin from Toranoana and Alicebooks... A bunch. BHA and past-due Hetalia and some South Park and originals. If I bought Haikyuu I might die. /on the laundry list)

Reborn is also on the to-do list ||orz although there's so much going on right now I don't know if it'll be marathoned even in the next few months... I don't have any major events until March so maybe I'll have some time outside of work??? /although would it be worth my while??? (I WANT TYL EVERYONE but can we at least have Tsuna??? The main character???)

I'm so off and on with most conventions but because I love markets I'll definitely try and make it a priority for next year xD (Probably winter; summer sounds terrying.) Wish I could make it this December because some of the Mob Psycho 100 doujn I want are event-only ;;... luckily I'm more reserved about merchandise but more importantly, I guess I should pay down my debts, first щ(゚Д゚щ) (Ensemble Stars looks supeeeeer cute, as does King of Prism. I don't even know this character item #464787 but doesn't he look kinda cool? The co-de's are cute, too! item #464575 Must. Resist...) I'm glad I'm not possessed by Love Live! and Cinderella Girls, even if I have them on the wishlist... As they come up, maybe, but preordering would be insane!

(Inuzama Eleven is adorable, even if I've never seen it. Amazingly popular, still.)

I want FGO in English sooooo badly ;; ;; It's all over pixiv rn; I might end up preoccupying myself with Mystic Messenger in the meantime, but I'm the type that forgets I even have these games ||orz /how long will it take me to finish Odin Sphere, even..........

(It is a lot like Fire Emblem, actually.) I'm on Android sooo I'll think about circumventing >:) Although I'm still mourning being kicked off Pokemon Go because I'm rooted, and I desperately wish Merc Storia was still available in English ;; ;; /constant tears

/omg don't even talk to me about how much I spent in PGo and GirlxBattle...... it's almost shameful (ू˃̣̣̣̣̣̣︿˂̣̣̣̣̣̣ ू) Although having not logged into either for so long, I guess I don't feel the need to pay and play atm

I saw that in my PMs!! (〃 ω 〃) Thank you very much! Hopefully I have tonight off, too, so I can start setting that up! v(。・ω・。)ィェィ♪

And no worries about anything. I appreciate all your help and congeniality (。>‿‿<。 ) ありがとうございました ♥♥♥

(since this is a massive essay... the longer it is the longer it takes me to respond... gomen...)

Aside from that long essay I wrote back to you, I'm having a really hard time deciding who to preorder from for a couple of figures that've caught my eye :c You're an Aussie; are there Aussie shops that have better deals in the end? (MHToyshop has $7 flat rate shipping and Akiba Soul has $5.99 flat rate shipping, so it's hard to decide.........)

rubyserpent_720 (5 months ago) #14513041SORRY FOR THE LATE REPLY. I saw your message at 2am in the morning and completely forgot to get back to you *is old
How have you been ( ;∀;)/
I've spent the last week re-watching Haikyuu Anime > re-read manga > fanfics and just ordered my first Haikyuu nendo (Kenma) because I'm a huge shipping trashcan holy shet kurooken, bokuakaa, iwaoi SEND HELP! OTZ so heads will roll and money will be flying at GSC once again (though I see a lot of quality complaints on his page? *cross fingers he'll turn out well) because what is self-restraint??
Fandom interaction wise I hang out on Touken Ranbu Wiki chat sometimes and hover at the edge of MFC Discord though it seems a bit intimidating there... and re-tweeting stuff on Twitter I guess (step up from re-blogging on Tumblr w). What about you? Where do you usually hang out?
Speaking of KHR. Hooboy 6927 was intense during its height. There was all out shipping wars at that time because everyone's a fandom bicycle (poor Tsuna). I followed quite a few doujinka who eventually branched out into different fandoms and it'll be like: ooh! pretty art I wonder who that ship is > gets into said fandom and rinse/repeat of this hell until you end up with unlimited doujin works the art of breaking bank OTZ
AoKuro all the way KnB hell was spectacular because of the whole bomb threats that were sent to comiket if there's any KnB content (sent by a jealous mangaka apparently) so they delayed it for a whole year. Then they caught the overzealous idiot and comiket was safe to host the doujins... which was the year my friend and I went. The atmosphere was amazing and there was practically a stampede running for BNF doujinka eg Inumog/Hummel's table.
And iiiiiif you ever had free time and I dunno... want to check out some doujins feel free to have a look at my (desperately needing to update) doujin sales list? am super happy to sell for cheap if anything catches your eye (=゚ω゚)ノ
If you want to get into Touken Ranbu the game its super super easy! I helped my 2 friends (who are now obsessively into it now hhahahahahahhaha) and cousins setup and does not require VPN at all. If you like we can setup chat somewhere so I can walk you through the process? Let me know anytime (*A*)ノ
Sorry for the essay OTZ...
Edit: Did I ever gush at your collection? because gushgushgush you have an amazing collection ;^) Really envious of item #236217, item #61446, item #42294 and pretty much everything. They look super amazing~
Edit 2: What are you feelings on mobile rpgs? and Fate universe? because have you heard of Fate Grand Order? It's another hell with heaps of upcoming figures ;A;


wwwwww ;A; Sorry for the long wait! I left your comment in my notifications with the intention of getting back to you eventually but I've been sick since DragonCon, swamped with work, and super sleepy yet sleep deprived! Been watching a lot of anime these past few days, too, and I assume there's a coorelation -A-

NINE DAYS LATER YOU GET A REPLY GOMEN

(i have a cosplay i have to put together before next month, too sobsob at least i have the base accessories (´;ω;`) がんばろう!)

I'm a total boke and haven't even started season two yet even though season three is coming out in a few weeks (,,꒪꒫꒪,,) I've purchased the first two volumes of the new English manga release, though, so hopefully I can start following through on that! I've been terrible at catching up to even KnB what the heck me........ if I dedicate myself to one thing I'm guaranteed to start streaming random anime or neglect anime for months orz Waiting on the Morose Mononokean's next episode ehhehheh

(I have Kenma on order from MHToyshop but he's not in stock yet until the 16th so waiting game! orz Suga-san I preordered on the spot, though. I'd love Kuro-kun at some point! And maybe a rerelease for Oikawa since Kagehina already has three orz Let me know what you think of Kenma when you get him! I still don't have any room right now to display why am I still buying figures?!? but I'll try and figure it out when I get there D:)

lmao I'm a true OTP type! Kagehina and Daisuga clocking in ahahaha also shame me but Kisekuro for KnB because damn true underdogs...

MFC Discord? Is that a club or chat channel? I haven't really been hanging out anywhere, I think. Buying figures has been my #1 priority latey so I'm usually on here--occasionally I'll drop into Tumblr (@laquotidienne) and mass repost for 10 hours straight when I should be sleeping. I have a twitter because fuji-tan is a big tweeter, but I haven't been invested in that site since I stopped roleplaying APH in 2010. (Oi, oi, I'm not going to make any new friends at this rate.)

UNLIMITED DOUJIN WORKS yes ;n; You got me looking at doujin again, dangit! Except I can't do doujin and figures at the same time orz! Buying some artbooks from candysweett since I've been craving that too, god.

Tsuna's so adorable, though (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚* I still need to finish watching the series ahahha I'm glad I stuck through episode 95 though because KHR stepped on the gas after that, story and quality wise! I wonder if anyone ever made scales... I'm gonna go look after I post this, haha!

AoKuro vs Kisekuro is pain I remember that insanity! Honestly, don't make otaku life harder than it has to be, ehhhh. I want to go to Comiket at some point, if only so I can get limited and con-only doujin goods O(≧∇≦)O!! I'm even willing to wait for hours in heat, snow, and sleet! (WonFes might be a lifetime goal, too) Wall circles... well, I haven't been invested in a wall since 2014... probably. Inumog and Hummel are always worth it though. It depends on when I'll eventually go, I guess. Maybe bunbunhanten if they're still working on things I like?

okay okay omg I'll take a look ruby-san もう...やめてください ;u;

Oh, please do! I want to have a taste! Have you seen the first episode of the TK anime, by the way?

P.P.S. oh, my goodness thank you ;A; my poor wallet, though! I'll have to do a review at some point. The Dendrobium sisters are wonderfully sculpted although there are little blemishes that irk me (some messy hair pieces)--but quality to price ratio is excellent! And Alice Exhibition is really pretty! MHToyshop was great to work with and this is my first Native piece <3 It makes me excited to think of how Aoba will look with this kind of quality my poor wallet...

⤴︎ ε=ε=(ง ˃̶͈̀ᗨ˂̶͈́)۶ ⤴︎

RPG: I'm playing a tiny bit of Phantom of the Kill because I got interested by item #378661 and it's all right? A little bit of Girl x Battle (chinese-based, English variant), too, but both are basically pay-to-play once you get to a certain point. I'd love to play Fate Grand Order and some of the other mobile RPGs, but they're not available to download in the States! (Hobbymax is releasing a figure from a Chinese girls-as-guns mobile game called Girls' Frontline and she's so pretty >< [ext link ])

Honestly, if I could just buy them as regular RPGs instead of RPGS + microtransactions, I'd appreciate that! ;A; I spend enough money as is! also there are so many great Fate figures, I'm doomed if I start spiraling down that path
