I bought the Soldier 76 and Torbjorn pair of Nendos for $51.62 shipped.  There's an hour, possibly more left in this deal.   Last time it ended early though.

 

Soldier 76  Nendoroid - $24

Torbjorn Nendoroid - $24

 

I had a hardy laugh when I first saw Torbjorn in stores a few months ago and saw they were trying to sell him for 75 bucks.

Nice. I wish they had more Overwatch figures in stock for that sale. Those were probably the only two. The Blizzard 12" statues were long gone by the time I checked in the morning.

Nendoroid Devil May Cry 5 Dante (May 2020):

So cool! A third face would have been appreciated, and maybe some extra accessories (like pizza), but I think they nailed his look.

 

Figma Splatoon Boy (June 2020):

FIGURE-054427.jpg

Also available as DX edition with additional character.

 

Figma Dead or Alive Kasumi C2 Black ver (May 2020):

First 4 Figures Breath of the Wild Zelda (January 2020):

LE (pictured) includes light up features. Personally, I find her face sculpt questionable, so may be worth waiting for final product. Link from this line came out really well though.

Amazon JP has a nice price on Nendoroid Corrin: https://www.amazon.c...uct/B01N9KF3PL/

Currently 3252 yen, drops to around 2956 yen at checkout after they remove Japan sales tax. After 1600 yen global shipping (3-6 days, really fast), that's about the same price I paid at AmiAmi for just the figure.

 

Got my Flare 2B. The paintwork is simple, but she looks nice.

Glad the Splatoon Boy went up for preorder.  I have the girl, and will be happy to have them paired up.

Yeah, nothing for me either. It's cool that they let you customize bundles, though.

Last day of TOM Super Sale. They had a cool daily deal the other day where Nendo Wind Waker Zelda for $45 gave $41 in points, lol.

 

TOM sent me a premium member birthday coupon for 10% off an order. I don't remember them doing this before, or maybe I wasn't premium last December. The coupon is issued at the beginning of your birthday month and has a three month expiration (so my December coupon is good until the end of February). TOM has also added access to a Sega online crane game where premium members get a free try per day. TOM really knows how to do premium right >_>)b

Tokyo Otaku Mode: Winter Clearance 2019. New items will be added daily and remain on sale until the end date, which is Dec. 26 @ 11:59 PST. Time to spend those bonus points from the Super Sale, I guess ;P

Also, a reminder that Right Stuf's year-end sales are going on, they add new stuff to the pile every week, and that includes figures and figure bundles in addition to anime, manga, artbooks, etc. The next big update should be tomorrow (Sunday).

Did anyone get anything good from these sales? Only thing I picked up was the Aranea PAK for $100 from the SE store.

 

The Sega Crane game works pretty well. There is lag, but it's an overall improvement from the other one. Plus most, if not all the prizes are at 200 SP, so you can actually play the game with your daily log in. 

 

I just won a FGO Osakabehime figure.

I didn't pick up anything due to spending so much on video games (and figure pre-orders that came due). There were some nice deals though that I wish I could have jumped on.

Nice win! My lag with the Sega Crane is similar to Akiba Catcher; I hold a button, let go when the timing in my head feels right, and then watch the crane move several seconds later. At least the Sega prizes are decent. Akiba Catcher started out with anime related goods like Re:Zero and Fate, but for a long time now it's just been random animal plushies that I win for the fun of winning and then give away to a kid.

 

-Update-

Got my first win on the Sega Crane, a Bang Dream mini cushion strap. The lag was so bad that the congratulations message popped up before I saw the second crane movement begin, lol.

 

-Update 2-

Won the same FGO Osakabehime figure you got. Again the congrats message pops up before I see the second crane movement... spoiler alert :P

My best pickup wasn't a figure, it was the Devil May Cry 5 artbook from HLJ for 30% off. I also got their cat and Kirby-themed lucky bags during Black Friday Early Access (they sold out not long after) and later picked up a kawaii-themed one. I usually don't go for lucky bags, but I liked the themes of these. Oh, and I also got a few other Kirby items, because I can't get enough of Kirby :razz:

With TOM's points deal, I mainly picked up prize figures and some other things I'd been wanting to order anyway, though I did also get S.H.Figuarts Sora (Final Form) when he went up as a daily special, with 50% points back. He already arrived and is pretty nice.

Congrats ^^ I agree with you in that the Sega crane games are better, though I sometimes run into an issue where one of the buttons doesn't respond much at all (a malfunctioning machine on their end?). It's great that I can play every day with TOM Premium as well, and that there's even a free practice mode.

Oh snap, thanks @lilman!  I've been looking for Sombra for cheap and I got McCree while I was at it.  I think I've only paid full price for like 2 of those Nendos and I have all of them that are out, now.

My first order from GSC US Shop has shipped. Some useful info learned:

1) Payments to GSC US Shop do not count as foreign transactions like they do at GSC JP (even payments in USD to GSC JP count as foreign transactions). While I have a card with no foreign transaction fees, it's nice to be able to use other cards and not worry about a fee.

2) Order shipped from Japan via EMS. I thought GSC may have wanted to use cheaper domestic shipping when they opened the US shop, but since the release dates on the US shop are the same as Japan's, it makes sense that they wouldn't have time to ship to a US warehouse first. This is great for us since EMS is really fast and all pre-orders from GSC US have free shipping.

 

So good experience so far with GSC US ^^

 

-Update-

Correction to point 2 above. GSC US will ship from Japan or US. I ordered two Nendos with the same release date of 12/19. One I got shipping notification for from Japan via EMS and should arrive tomorrow, while the other I did not receive shipping notification for and it arrived today shipped from California via USPS 2-day. Either way, the figures ship on their Japan release dates and arrive quickly.

Yeah, they shipped my Alex Louis Armstrong figures a little while ago and I was pretty happy with the whole experience. Definitely going to use them again (as a recent Touhou convert, I'm currently considering getting Nendo Reimu).

Found a nice deal on F4F Okami Amaterasu PVC statue at Hot Topic: https://www.hottopic...e/12604029.html

 

$85.90 full price, currently 20% off at $68.72. If this is your first time ordering online from Hot Topic (like it was for me), then sign up for their email newsletter first and you will receive an email with a 30% off coupon shortly after, bringing the cost down to $60.13. Shipping is currently free over $60. Tax in most states.

 

My total came out to $64.34 after 30% off, tax, and free shipping. I almost ordered from TOM for $80 (+$16 shipping), but this is better and already in stock vs waiting for April.

 

-Update-

For Christmas day only, 30% off is automatically applied to the statue, no need to sign up for newsletter first.

TOM 20x points 12/27-1/9.

 

My Amaterasu from Hot Topic has shipped and should arrive on 1/3. This really is a slick price for anyone interested. Cheapest anywhere else, including shipping, is around $95. I'll post my impressions when she arrives.
