Won another Re:Zero keychain from the TOM crane. I think it's Rem again, lol. There are four versions of her, so hopefully this one is different. I would like to try a different machine, but this is the only one currently available that they give you enough free points to play.

You get five free plays when you download Toreba for mobile phones.  Seriously, give it a try if you like UFO Catchers but don't have regular access to them.

I've always liked UFO catchers. I still play Nintendo Badge Arcade free plays on 3DS every day. I need to stay away from Toreba if it works well since I would probably get addicted to it :P

Yup. I have a handful of Banpresto prize figures and they're generally quite good for the price. Obviously, don't expect 10k yen figure quality, and be prepared for potential flaws.

Coincidentally, my most recent Banpresto arrival is also a Dragon Ball figure, albeit of Bulma; she turned out really well. I also have the rerelease of Midoriya from My Hero Academia on order.

Banpresto is one of the better prize figure makers imo. I usually go registered, but I like having a tracking number.

Thanks for quick reply. Since it was like only 1300 yen i figured i just go cheap in shipping. How much is the difference between reg and unreg? I bought a figma before worth $65 and sal reg was like $10 for it. Will i be getting the same price for this $13 fig? I was too excited to get it that i just said submit. Hehe

I missed out ordering the figma midoriya and kicking myself for it. That is a nice alternative! Still hoping they rerelease him soon and be alot cheaper.

Banpresto prizes are good. I have a few of the 1300 yen ones on pre-order (most recently Kirito).

Registered is 410 yen more than unregistered, regardless of shipping cost. For a 1300 yen figure, unreg is the way to go.

Thanks! Finally got my invoice its was ¥680 shipping for unreg. Total dollar cost was $18.84.

Im seeing US sellers selling this figure for like $29.99+shipping. Pretty happy with the savings yhough i have to wait longer.

TOM is having a one day Valentine's sale: https://otakumode.co...p/valentinesale

 

Very tempted on Kotobukiya Edward Elric LE for $100, but I already have his Megahouse ver.

GSC WonFes items are up for pre-order. Open 2/18 - 2/27 or until sold out. Remember that US orders get half off shipping for WonFes items (1000yen/$9 rather than the usual 2000yen/$18).

 

Figma Bride and Groom are also available for pre-order.

CUIXttA.jpg7WHxBSs.jpg

This stock may be more limited than the WonFes items. For some reason, GSC did not categorize these as WonFes, so they have to be ordered separately from the WonFes stuff.

 

GSC offers to charge you in either USD or JPY. I recommend choosing USD at this time since GSC's conversion rate is good (1 USD = 109 JPY). If you pay with PayPal, you are not charged until 1-2 weeks before release.

 

I placed two orders. Nendo Snow Miku + Nendo Megumin came out to $105 shipped. Figma Bride + Figma Groom were $100 shipped.

Thanks for the reminder! Just a single figma Snow Miku for me this year.

As for WonFes itself, not much new for me on that front. Video game-wise, there's a handful of new Persona 5 and Pokemon figures, as well as some others. A bunch of previously-announced figures have gotten updates as well (colored prototypes, etc.). As usual, MFC's WonFes master lists should be going up later.

ETA: The List (new announcements) is live and in progress. Covers WonFes, Toy Fair, and announcements made just prior to those two events. The Other List (updates) hasn't gone up yet.

Cool! The Miku Love is War was my first figure I ever bought. Although, not the DX version.

New figma preorders!

Widowmaker (Overwatch) - AmiAmi, HLJ, Hobby Search

FIGURE-037536.jpg

Pixie (Shin Megami Tensei) - AmiAmi, HLJ, Hobby Search

FIGURE-037546.jpg

The Pokemon Company also announced a new, Pokemon Center-exclusive figure line: Gallery Figures DX. First in the series will be Charizard, who will go on sale tomorrow for $28.99, according to Game Informer. The "regular" Gallery Figures are pretty decent, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this spinoff line does.

Finally, I found one hell of a deal over in MFC's figure sales thread: TOM is having a 30% back in points for premium members, also add the new "KOTOBUKIYA" coupon to get 20% off your order if you include a koto item, most items are already 5% off for premium members , so play it well to snatch around 50% off your order :)

I took advantage of this earlier today and ordered figmas Atlas and P-Body along with a cheap Nyanboard strap by Kotobukiya, then later preordered figma Pixie with the points earned. Each figma came to around $50-55 including shipping, which is pretty good considering how much the first two normally go for.

The Kotobukiya coupon (the code is literally "KOTOBUKIYA") is reusable and expires on March 1st. The 30x points deal expires the following day.

So i got my tracking number for an sal registered i ordered last week. When i tried looking at the tracking infl there was a message saying delays in delivery inthe USA. The message was marked in january 2018. Anyone ordered in feb got their shipments already? Does it really take almost a month for sal mail to arrive? Thanks

Around holidays, it can. But you can probably ask the post office at this point.

Don't think there are any SAL delays to US at the moment. My SAL orders are taking 3-4 weeks to arrive (for reference I live in FL). Two of my orders that shipped out on Feb 1 arrived Feb 20 and Feb 26 respectively.

 

I have three more SAL orders en route since 2 weeks ago, 1 week ago, and 3 days ago. The oldest one has reached New York, while the other two haven't updated since Japan.

SAL's been normal for me here since the holidays ended-- in other words, my packages take roughly three weeks to arrive. Sometimes there are delays, though. I wouldn't get worried until six weeks pass with no sign of a package.

Nendoroid Legend of Zelda BotW Guardian (August 2018):

Pre-order from AmiAmi BiJ HS HLJ

 

I already have the Guardian Amiibo so I wasn't that tempted on the Nendo, until I saw the included Game Over accessory:

Lol. I'll still try to not get it, but that is awesome.

 

They are also re-releasing Nendo BotW Link (regular and DX) if you somehow didn't get him the first time around.

Hoping that the Nendo Guardian goes on sale in the future (and yeah, the Game Over screen accessory is brilliant). My husband (who's currently playing BotW) wants one, but not at its preorder price.
