I had pretty much the same reaction, but, y'know, if it leads to a Doomguy figma down the line, it's all good :D

*looks around* They forgot to actually put things on sale >_>

A Nendo would be cool for him too. I would like to see something from Elder Scrolls as well.

More MFC copy-pasta:

 

Right Stuf: This shop is now selling several "imperfect" figures with discounts. These items have damaged boxes, but the figures themselves are fine - https://www.rightstu...rds=[Imperfect]
 
HLJ: Autumn Sale starts Thursday, September 19th at 11 AM (JST).

It's not clear if this is one of their sales where they add new categories of items every day, but the email says, "Be sure to visit us when it starts to get the best deals on popular products from action figures to scale models -- while they last!"

As a reminder, HLJ sales sometimes start a little late, so keep that in mind.

If you plan on buying the imperfects, to read the description. Some of them have missing or broken pieces. Good prices though.

Also appreciate the heads up on sales Kasahara!

Thanks for the info on the imperfects. The couple of listings I had seen only mentioned damaged boxes, so I assumed it was the same for all of them ^^;

And no problem! :)

There are a few I have my eye on, but Flare 2B was expensive. Maybe once I know how much of a delay Hobby Max Chii is getting so I can plan the next month better...

 

What did you get from the sale?

Figure-wise, my big pickup was AGP MS Girl S Gundam for 6600 yen. I love Gundam Girls, but the early figure versions of them apparently weren't very good, quality-wise, and the later ones are supposed to be better but are also much more expensive. S Gundam is one of the latter, and seeing as how her MSRP is 11,000 yen, there was no way I could pass her up.

My other figure pickup was this Miku version of Danboard. I like Miku, I like Yotsuba&!, so why not?

I also got a Pikachu sticky note set, Kirby multi-pocket clear file and notebook set, Touhou art/how-to book, and the Chocobo's Crystal Hunt card game and expansion.

Nice that they included a horse and Master Sword.

 

Nendo BotW Link (regular and DX) also up for re-release.

I bought a Super Minipla Mega Man Ride Armor "Chimera" & Kangaroo Unit on clearance at Barnes & Noble for $20.  Just got done putting it together; that was fun.   My Roll Nendo fits inside it, but the scale is off. :)

Love buying these Nendos for ~$20-25.   Need one of those Mega Man / X Nendos to go on clearance now!

The blind box Mega Man figures are the ones scaled to those ride armors. They run about 10 each, I managed to pull Vile from wave 2, Wave 1 they had marked for contents.

Man, I still wish they followed through with that D-Arts Ride Armor prototype from back in the day. Vile deserves it.

Last few hours of the HLJ sale. I picked up Kotobukiya Vash the Stampede for 8250 yen.

The Monster Hunter World Nendo DX's were really tempting.

I knew that a Ryza figure was going to be done, but sheesh. I was getting ready to buy the Poison Ivy figure too.

They're super good sculpts. I love the Xeno Hunter especially.

Just curious, but need to part with some of my figures to make space for Switch, and wondering if anybody here would be interested since this seems like a good place.

This thread is for posting deals and announcements of upcoming video game figures. You can sell in the trade forum. You could also post ads on MFC.

Nippon-Yasan 1-day 3-day Halloween sale: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/time-sale

 

Some good prices in there, but also a lot of things marked up double and then the sale price is at or above current price at other stores.

That's pretty shady. Are their "normal" prices for those items closer to the sale ones, then? Either way, think I'll pass; have heard numerous complaints about that shop anyway.

I don't think they raised prices for the sale... it's just that their normal prices can be high. It's like they try to match the higher end of aftermarket prices on popular figures.

 

Plenty of people from MFC still shop at N-Y. I only bought from them once, and the experience was not good (very long time to ship out my figure, box arrived crushed but luckily no figure damage). They have Nendo Corrin re-release on sale for a tempting 3380yen, but I'll probably just buy her (or her Figma) at normal price from a shop like AmiAmi.

TOM "Holiday Gift Sale + Coupon" coming Oct. 25. The 10% coupon that just ended wasn't enough to make me bite on anything, so I hope they offer something better this time.
