Did you guys get anything interesting from the TOM 40x sale?

I ordered:
Phat 1/7 Goblin Slayer Cow Girl

Nendoroid Saber Alter Shinjuku ver DX

 

The math:

CG: $154.84

Salter: $56.04

Total: $210.88

-10% coupon: $189.80

-$39.80 in points: $150

Shipping: free since order $150+

40x points back: $60

 

So I paid $150 out of pocket ($110.13 for CG, $39.87 for Salter) and got $60 back in points. These two figures are coming out at the end of the year in Japan stores, so I rather pay for them now than during the busy holiday season. Thanks to the discounts, they were a little cheaper than ordering from Japan shops (would have been CG $122, Salter $45), plus free shipping (at least $30 saved), plus $60 in points ($20 more back than I used). Not too shabby.

I picked up:

- 1/7 scale Yoko Asagiri (from the 80s OVA Leda: The Fantastic Adventure of Yoko, which I'm a fan of) - she was a new listing at the time, so I got around 50x points back
- FLCL clear files (one of each, including their last Kanchi)
- FLCL gacha pins (x3)
- Kotori Tai Grackle coin pouch

Used $37.76 in points plus the 10% off coupon, and the total came to $173.19 with $83.01 in points back. I wouldn't have placed an order if they didn't have Yoko.

Haven't heard of Leda before; may check it out.

 

Nice FLCL merch. Curious which pins you'll get. I would want the red Naota most, but they all look good.

 

What do you do with clear files?

Leda has long been out of print in the US, but a digital remaster just came out in Japan, so I'm hoping that'll eventually work its way here. The Japanese Blu-ray doesn't include English subs :cold:

As for what I do with clear files, I either use them or put them in a special binder like this one. Will be giving the FLCL clear files the latter treatment.

Several Nendoroids and Figmas on sale at GameStop for $20 ea. All pretty much oos online, so will have to check for local stock.

Nendos: https://www.gamestop...Nendoroid,28xp0

Figmas: https://www.gamestop...k-3-Figma,28xp0

 

I stopped by a local GS with my receipt for Nendo D.Va from a few days ago. They said they are not supposed to price adjust (unless they have the item in stock and can swap it with yours, which they didn't have and I didn't bring the figure anyway), but they were willing to give me a $4 gc.

Oh damn, thanks for the heads up! Was able to reserve a Planet Robobot mech at a nearby store. Wasn't on my must-have list, but for $20 bucks I'll definitely take it.

Weird (and annoying -_-) that Alex Louis Armstrong's Nendo More figure can't be shipped with the other WonFes exclusives. Maybe because he's limited? Anyway, him and Saitama are my only pickups this time around.

They should have grouped Armstrong with the WonFes items. I would have got him that way, but not as a separate, and full price, shipping charge. I'm also not a fan of him being non-poseable.

 

I'll be getting Nendos Saitama and Salter.

I got them in today; they came in capsules. I got two of the Rickenbacker and one of red Naota, both of which were my least favorite of the bunch. Just my luck :cold:

Too bad you didn't get the ones you wanted (as is the way of gacha). I think Red Naota is a good pickup, but 2x guitars is a bummer. Canti's head and the cat would have been sweet.

MFC has the WF2019S list: https://myfigurecoll....net/blog/43304

 

Still looking it over. Already noticed some sweet gaming Nendos including Dante, Bayonetta, and Waddle Dee (before King Dedede... interesting choice).

A quick tip for anyone wanting GSC WonFes items: try the new US-specific online shop - https://www.goodsmileus.com

- Prices are slightly cheaper than at the international GSC Shop
- Economy shipping is currently free for preorders for a limited time
- You can combine WonFes items with others

They also have some non-figure items there that, to the best of my knowledge, aren't on the int'l Shop.

King Dedede would have to be a Nendo More to keep him to scale with Kirby, and, perhaps more importantly, Waddle Dee is quite popular in Japan. Bayo I would rather have as a figma, and Dante as the first DMC game version. In for Waddle Dee, though.

Besides Waddle Dee, I'm also interested in:
- Pop Up Parade Genos
- figma Thorfinn
- Nendoroid Black Frost

I also want all these little Jack/Black Frosts. The designs are the same as those featured on a Jack Frost goods line at ebten.jp/Atlus D Shop; got one of the tote bags last year and it was well worth it.

Nice find. Ordered my WonFes Nendos (Saitama and Salter). Still debating Nendo Armstrong (Nendo More...).

 

Just a heads up, payments via credit card are charged near release (similar to GSC Japan shop), while payments via PayPal or Amazon Pay are charged immediately.

 

Besides Waddle Dee, I'm also interested in:
- Pop Up Parade Genos

Genos looks good. I also like the announced Saitama casual ver. Goblin Slayer will be my first PUP. Will be interesting to see the size and quality in person.

I was surprised to come across that site the other night. Took me a second to realize it wasn't just a redesigned version of their regular site :lol:

 

Are those little Jack Frosts going to be sold or are they for gatchapon machines or something?

I need to see a prototype of this Bayo nendo. I love Bayonetta, I love Nendoroids, but I'm preeetty skeptical of this pairing.
