    Toweled Kongiku (paid) item/397481#tab...

    Figma Zero Suit Samus (which sounds like it's delayed) ITEM #198342

    Mafex Captain Phasma (probably gonna be late) ITEM #398887

    Last Guardian CE game/statue (arriving today)

    Edit: Just found out the other three Dark Horse Witcher figures released, managed to order Yenn, but looks like Ciri is all sold out.

    Momohime arrived, she is beautiful, but I wasn't so lucky and she has the little mark in her head.

    Either way I'm really happy, for me the damage isn't that big and is only really noticeable from close. Can't be angry with her only for that little mark when she is so amazing.

    I only hope Amakuni learn something from this and don´t do the same mistake in the future.

    You actually did get lucky the mark was that small. Heh. Mine had a tiny mark too. Hopefully Kongiku doesn't have any issues like this.

    Yeah, I think you are right ^_^ I couldn't preorder Kongiku, but I hope she doesn't get too expensive in aftermarket.

    Well, now there is the option of the variants, both Momohime ITEM #520730 and Kongiku ITEM #520731 have this droplets version, I find kinda amazing if the droplets effect really looks that way, in the pictures if appears so real, but I don't like that much the shiny head.

    If you two with the small hair marks want to try something that might be less noticable I have a suggestion. Get some type of water-based hobby or artist paint; if you can find a color that matches the hair that's perfect but even just black should be less noticable than the white mark. With a fine pointed brush paint the area, and by using a water-based paint if you mess it up you can just wipe it off with a damp paper towel or Q-tip with no danger of making things worse.

    Well, in my case it does´t bother me that much, and I was also worried to try something, but the water based paint is a good idea, maybe I give it a try if I can find some in a local store.

    Thanks ^^

    I'm anal so it would drive me crazy. I've bought two of several figures because of little defects like that. If it's on something other than the head or hair I can live with it but if it's there it's hard for me to accept. I'd need a "perfect" fix too; I wish I was good at art like Luse so I could mix paints to match and touch things up.

    Mine is such a tiny dot it wouldn't be worth the trouble.

    Yeah, yours looks not much different than the dust bits on her hair in your picture. Still at that small size I'd probably use a fine-tipped sharpie and just barely touch it there since black would be basically invisible.

    Ciri is the best one (in fact I'd say she's the only decent one of the bunch), followed by eyes too far apart Triss, gimpy round faced Geralt, and fugly too much forehead shit posed Yenn.

    In hand they all look much better our eyes being more forgiving then cameras, and of course the Prime 1 statues shit all over them, but your talking £29 versus £950 each. I've got Prime 1 Geralt on order and waiting to pre-order their Yenn, but for now these will do, I have them on display on a 6' 8.5" tall cabinet so I have to look up at them and look good from a distance.

    So after months of enduring delay after delay, I finally had something to unbox arrive late last week. After humming and hawing over them while they were on sale at Nippon-Yasan over November, I finally broke and bought two figures I've wanted even before I saw Madoka Magica: Stronger's Meiko versions of Kyōko & Sayaka. :)

    http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Baka_Bishie1482186902.jpeg

    They are lovely, and I'm so glad I decided to pick them up. I'm really impressed with how nicely they turned out, as they're the first Stronger figures I've bought, and certainly won't be the last. :)

    I also have a bunch ordered from Alter that were pushed here to December, but only Hanayo looks like she'll come out. The wait continues, I guess.

    Figma Zero Suit Samus has been paid for but I don't expect her to show up until next month.

    In the spirit of Butts butts and more plastic butts Kongiku arrived, flawless paint too.

    I always think those two would look amazing in a display with Benten and some sort of hot springs background.

    I received Bishoujo Thor ITEM #396494 a couple of days ago...SAL Parcel from Amiami to me in a week is something else.

    I'll just steal a user pic:

    http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/cbgs-ryuto1482357834.jpeg
    (huge version here: s1.tsuki-board....)

    In the large pic you can see her face is out of focus but this still shows her better than anything else I found. Her face looks very good, better than the prototype in detail and paint quality. Her eyebrows are a gold color and the hair is shaded a bit and less yellow than the picture looks. Sculpt overall is pretty typical for these with mostly nice details, great hair and if I'm really picky all I could complain about is her right hand isn't very detailed and her hands seem a bit large but that's probably intentional. I'm not a fan of the masked head but I knew that from the prototype and I always have the intent to display these figures with the unmasked versions anyway.

    I'm happy with her but not too happy with the shipping cost which I wasn't expecting with how this line of figures usually is. Her box is huge, in part required due to the outstretched arm and the volume of the cape, but it's also larger than it needs to be with a lot of empty space on the left and overall more space around her than is typical for figures in this line.

    I have been buying these from Amiami as with the exchange rate and typical shipping they're as cheap or cheaper than buying from BBTS etc., but in the case of this one it's definitely preferable to get her from a domestic source. Shipping cost aside, overall given general figure prices she seems like a bargain as we were discussing about Spider Gwen in the other thread recently.

    Happy New Year, everyone. Thought I'd take a moment to share a new design for displaying my figures I did over the weekend to celebrate. Of all the various ways I've arranged my figures, I think I've hit on a real winner here. What do you think?

    http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Baka_Bishie1483304119.jpeg

    I know I still need risers and some lights, both of which I hope to afford as soon as all these figure delays from last year come in, but just from the arrangement alone, I'm really happy with this look. Not sure what will end up going above Muse; I'll need to give that some thought. Anyway, I'm looking forward to continue filling up these shelves, starting this week when Hanayo arrives. :)

    P.S. For those wondering where all the lewd is, well... ;)
