I just joined myfigurecollection

I actually learned a lot reading the reviews and such.

The only reason I even got started was because of this thread. I'm up to 14 figures and 9 on pre-order.

I'm constantly refreshing Hobby Search. I bought 4 figures already though.

Crunchyroll DotD is Kotobukiya ARTFX Halo 4 Master Chief for $105 and free shipping with coupon SHINJI75

CR DotD Master Chief: http://www.crunchyroll.com/store/p/101320/Halo-Master-Chief-ARTFX-Statue

 

Not a figure I'm interested in but this is probably the best price we'll see him at, especially with that free shipping code. Remember with CR you pay upfront.

HS bargain bin update:

Max Factory 1/7 Fire Emblem Awakening Tharja (6171 JPY, ~$63): http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10232679

Alphamax 1/8 Dragon's Crown Sorceress (7080 JPY, ~$72): http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10238213

 

I haven't played Fire Emblem (any of them, though Awakening is in my backlog) but I couldn't say no to Tharja at that price. This figure received nothing but high praise on MFC. SAL shipping was 1580 JPY for about $79 total.

with Figma Saber 2.0 being recently announced, hope they do Kirito and Asuna 2.0s (sword art online) next. That would be awesome. Still have no luck those two figures at reasonable prices.

Oh well, it's probably for the best for my wallet.

SHF Luigi was announced to go along with SHF Mario and the playsets. Wonder who else they'll release...

 

I would still prefer a Nendo Mario to go with Nendo Luigi.

Figma Link and Samus are getting another re-release in November.

Those USD prices don't include conversion fees, so add a few dollars to their estimates. After conversion and fees, SHF Mario + both play sets shipped SAL Unregistered is about $52, $13 cheaper than buying from Amazon. Mario alone is about the same at both Plamoya and Amazon (if shipped free from Amazon, either prime or get your order up to $35).

 

For now I just have SHF Mario ordered at Amazon. I'll use the accessories from Nendo Luigi.

Nendo Luigi release date set for June 24.

MegaHouse 1/7 Dragon's Crown Elf delayed from June to July. (yay! June was already too expensive)

Cancelled my SHFiguarts Mario after watching this review:

 

So disappointing. Hopefully GSC will make a Nendo Mario.

I didn't even preorder this. was thinking about it for sometime but just passed on it. the 3 set pack was a turnoff. Yes, the main figure was cheap but buying him alone feels incomplete and having just one face, one set of hands and little articulation was just not appealing.

I bought the S.H. Figuarts Mario plus the two additional playsets. I like it. Its articulation isn't the best, but I like the look of the figure itself and the accessories.

July re-releases of Revoltech PW Snake and MGRR Raiden:

Revoltech Peace Walker Snake (3rd release) (3160 JPY, ~$33): http://www.amiami.co...e=FIGURE-006429

Revoltech Metal Gear Rising Revengence Raiden (2nd release) (3560 JPY, ~$37): http://www.amiami.co...e=FIGURE-006430

 

The white variant of Revoltech MGRR Raiden was recently released and is still available: http://www.amiami.co...e=FIGURE-005038

I like the original color better.

Paid for Nendo Luigi this morning. Should get him in a few weeks.

 

Revoltech Ninja Turtles are up for pre-order at around $40 ea.

Still haven't purchased anything from Amiami. Just can't decide what to buy.

if i order all 4 turtles... any estimate on how much my total bill will be including shipping and paypal fees?

Bigbadtoystore has the set for $219 but it seems like its way overpriced there. singles are tagged at $59.99.

Wonder if amazon will carry them too. The recently released shfiguarts goku and mario were once priced at $32 and $20 there. So im still on the fence if i want to preorder. Haha

Let's say you buy from BiJ which has the cheapest price per turtle at 3830 JPY. All 4 turtles would be 3830 x 4 = 15320 JPY, ~$162 (conservative estimate... at today's rate it would be more like $155). According to BiJ's cart estimator, to ship all 4 turtles together would require EMS at 4000 JPY, ~$42. I, however, would do two SAL Unregistered shipments of 2 turtles for about 1280 JPY per shipment. 1280 x 2 = 2560 JPY, ~$27. So with cheaper shipping option, total would be ~$189. That's $30 cheaper than BBTS (not including BBTS shipping, which I don't know how much would cost). Plus you would get them at least a month earlier than US store. If you go with AmiAmi instead of BiJ (I do prefer AmiAmi myself), total would be about $198 since each turtle is 200 JPY more than at BiJ.

You could wait for Amazon / Crunchyroll prices. These don't seem popular on MFC so I doubt you have to worry about them selling out too soon.

On a related note, today I passed along my old 80s-90s ninja turtle figures to my nephew. Oh, and I found these:

so obviously I no longer need Nendo Luigi :P

Would Bluefin even release them here, though?  The Turtles action figure rights belong to Playmates, and it's a major brand for them.  I don't think, for instance, that they solicited any of the figma or mafex super hero figures, have they?

Bluefin mainly just distributes Bandai figures, right? I'm not sure who Kaiyodo's main US distributor is, currently, but it looks like Amazon.com itself does not stock any Revoltechs.

Now that you mention it, i did not see amazon selling revoltechs directly when i was searching for creepy woody and yotsuba. Damn!

Last day of Anime-Island's July 4th sale. 15% off select in-stock items (4THJULY15OFF), or free shipping on pre-orders over $100 (4THFREESHIP): http://www.anime-island.com/

 

It looks like the pre-order deal only needs $75 to work rather than $100. It won't work if you pre-order $100 figure but only put down 20% / $20... you need to spend at least that amount up front. The deal also says the free shipping is USPS but seemed to work even when I picked a $100 overnight FedEx shipping :P I'm not ordering anything now since June was crazy. I would have liked to pick up (non-game figure)

Spoiler
with the 15% off code.

Received invoice from AmiAmi for MegaHouse 1/7 Dragon's Crown Elf. She doesn't come out until 7/18, but sometimes AmiAmi likes to invoice early. 1280 JPY for SAL Unregistered shipping, so about $102 total.
