Awesome ... but £300, with free shipping of course, is a bit much for something i can't display at the moment. Gah.
Yes, figure collection is a luxury hobby now. Prices are hiking like crazy lately. Although these premium figures are absolutely gorgeous, it is really hard for most people to pull the trigger.Awesome ... but £300, with free shipping of course, is a bit much for something i can't display at the moment. Gah.
I'm going to have to think about it. It is due August next year so i'd have time to save and spread the cost...
edit: and now i'm looking at getting OkaKoro PopUp Parade figures and a candy snackbox!
Very unfortune to see how the delivery smashed the box like this, at least the figure itself came undamaged. I saw both of them in a local stores a few days ago and their prices are already going up.My Korone and Okayu figs arrived. My Okayu one nearly bit the dust before it even got to me. In all my years ordering stuff, it is probably one of the worst conditions I have seen a box arrive in ever, the picture does not do it justice
Even the Okayu figure box was completely smashed and cracked, but somehow the actual figure did not get damaged. I had planned on keeping it in the box for awhile, so in some ways it is probably good since it makes me actually take it out of the box and not be a perfectionist.
Thank you for telling me this! I am a completely new to having figures and had no idea! It makes sense though now that say it, it was wrapped in a lot of loose plastics that would trap that stuff.Very unfortune to see how the delivery smashed the box like this, at least the figure itself came undamaged.

Just fyi, figures can become sticky if it stays inside the box for a long period of time because the vaporized plasticizer is trapped inside the box. So I would recommend showcasing them anyway!
I have once again recieved an interesting mail! Hello! My name is Tii! I love reading your blog. ^^The other day I finally managed to find and buy Nendoroid Totori after searching for ages! I took her home and opened the box filled with anticipation…. only to find the surface of the figure was all…mikatan.goodsmile.info
Yeah same. I tried to look for literally any other store selling it and couldn't find anything. Lots of reputable outlets ran a story about it, Eurogamer even, but it seems to be exclusive to this one store and it's not licensed by SE. So I'm just not sure...I used to see a lot of ads for that page, they had a lot of cool sfw figures too, but honestly never knew if it was a legit page/good quality products or just a cheap thing that won't be like the pics.
For sure, if it was ~$400 instead of $700 I might have gambled on it just for shits and giggles. Never had a 1/4 scale before.Honestly if it were less expensive i'd buy it
I have one and it's rather decent. Sadly there are some issues with the paint job though.
Damn I just had to buy a new mouse cuz my old one went bad, but damn I want this so bad.
Yeah be careful here boys. I own every single Muramasa figure from WING and every single one has had paint issues. Not to the point of ruining the figure or anything but... yeah. It's always something.Damn I just had to buy a new mouse cuz my old one went bad, but damn I want this so bad.
I do get paid extra on Thursday for on call hours.....
As far as I know, no Minato figma has been announced yet. Best place for figure info is probably myfigurecollection. Most if not all characters have their own page showing their respective figures. Here's her page: Minato AquaDoes anyone know if a Minato Aqua figma has been planned or shown? (Or I guess where does one find this information so I do not have to pester folks in the future, I am still new to all of this haha) I am back and forth on her Pop Up Parade figure. The ones I have received are just okay quality, not bad, but not great.
Still patiently waiting for the Houshou Marine figma to be orderable. That is the one I was most anticipating out the gate and it has been the last figure on the docket to release it seems haha.
Thank you again for the resources Cacher, you are always extremely helpful!!!
You are welcome! You can write to goodsmile customer service regarding the defects and they may give or exchange another one for you, but obviously the replacement will still has imperfections.Thank you again for the resources Cacher, you are always extremely helpful!!!
Mio figure came, and to be honest, I do not think I am going to get any more of the Pop Up Parades beyond the Hololive ones I have left preordered (Fubuki's and Marine's so I can complete my Hololive Gamers). I just cancelled a Miku and Beserk one.
I 100% understand they are meant to be cheaper, but between the figures I received for Korone, Okayu, and Mio, there are so many random splotches of paint, scratches, scuffs, odd sheens, paint outside of lines, and glues. It just seems a tinge excessive even for the reasonable price point.
I think I will stick with figmas for now.
I like the figure, but i'd feel a bit weird displaying this rapey looking asuka in my living room orzPicking these out for Hektor to keep an eye on.
