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.

 

-Update-

Win #3 looks like Emilia.

Also got my first Rem in today:

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.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

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.

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.
