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.
