Last chance to use the 30% off figure and dolls coupon at TOM. I would love to use it but I'm already tapped out after the plush coupon.

I ended up preordering something. It's been awhile since I've done that.

Metal Gear Solid is very near and dear to my heart... but I just don't think it would be practical to get that one. I have a 100% Naruto Nendo set, so I am limited on office space at the moment... I was hoping they would put Gaara on the damn site before today, but it didn't happen!

I probably should've waited to order my husband's Nendo Guardian in case a coupon like that one popped up. Ah well... still got a nice price for it after points were applied :D

I have the MGS Nendo and he is really good.

I too am collecting all the Naruto Nendos and anxiously await Gaara. He doesn't have a release year or prototype yet though. I don't expect him until 2019.

Ah ok. Then I will get Snake. May as well... I have points that will expire when my pro status expires. Thanks for letting me know about the Gaara!

Round 2 of HS bargain bin started. Added Figma and Nendo Tracer at ok (not amazing) prices.

Here's some relatively niche/obscure video game figures that recently went up for preorder:

Front Mission 1st Wander Arts - Zenith (city camo), Zenith (desert) - AmiAmi, HLJ, Hobby Search

FIGURE-039707.jpg

FIGURE-039708.jpg

I disliked the one Front Mission Play Arts kai action figure I owned enough to sell it, so I don't have too much faith that these will turn out well. Also, the prices are higher and the figures themselves are smaller :cold:

Still, I'm glad that these exist, and that Front Mission isn't forgotten. I do wonder what their existence means, though. Are these tied into Left Alive, that game announced last year which is set in the FM universe? Is a new port of Front Mission, aka Front Mission 1st, coming in some form? What's the deal?

Arle Nadja 1/8 by Alter - AmiAmi, HLJ, Hobby Search

FIGURE-040014.jpg

Arle and Carbuncle are listed here as being from Madou Monogatari, but you may know them better from that game's internationally famous spinoff, Puyo Puyo. There have been a handful of Arle figures in the past, but this is easily the nicest that isn't a garage kit, and also one of the very few based on her classic design, as opposed to the simpler modern one.

I would preorder her in a heartbeat if the price wasn't so high ;_;

Jack Frost is an awesome Nendo, and given how much he shot up in price in the after-market, this rerelease was well overdue. Shame that they bumped up his price, but I guess that's par for the course these days *shrug* Definitely pick him up if you have any interest in him :D

Gaara Nendoroid (March 2019):

DKgDLAY.jpg

GSC TOM AmiAmi

 

Looks like he comes with two faces, slight frown and slight smile. A third one with a crack showing his sand armor breaking would have been sweet, but we already know these Naruto Nendo releases are bare-bones. I thought he would take longer to go up for pre-order... he went from sketch with no further information to finished product ready to pre-order.

 

Nendo Jiraiya will be up for pre-order in early July. If you want to order both from GSC, you can wait until Jiraiya is up to combine shipping.

 

Nendo Naruto re-release is also up for pre-order.

Jiraiya Nendoroid (December 2018):

GSC

 

I'm not sure if partner shops are getting this one. Pretty good deal to order direct from GSC anyway if you also want Gaara (and whatever else you're currently interested in) since GSC uses flat rate shipping cost, regardless of number of items in order ^^

 

Prototype revealed for Nendo Tsunade. I'm guessing they'll make Orochimaru too to complete the Sannin.

Not great quality :\

 

Also last day of TOM 30x points bonus. Some items already have 10x points, so you can get up to 40x.

Haha, you aren't kidding :cold:

Speaking of which, Square Enix is currently showing off a bunch of Bring Arts prototypes at Comic-Con. Highlights include Kairi, Cloud, and Sephiroth from the Kingdom Hearts series; Neku from The World Ends with You; and a whole bunch of FFIX characters.

I preordered S.H.Figuarts kid Krillin yesterday at TOM. He's one of those 40x figures, so that netted me around $21 in points :whee: Dunno if I should order anything else...

Nice, I ordered Krillin too (from AmiAmi). I'm tempted to get Bulma as well, but I don't remember her wearing that outfit in the anime (*edit* looked it up, it's from the ed... why not go with something she actually wore during the show, like her pink "Bulma" dress?)

 

30x-40x back is a good deal. I'm too tapped out right now to take advantage of it though >_<

TOM coupon code WHL4U28 for 20% off items with label WHL4U, which seems to be every GSC product they have. Valid July 20-28.

Yea, the Bring Arts A2 wasn't that bad.

Last day for TOM 20% off GSC coupon WHL4U. Like previous coupons, if you have a GSC item in your cart, the discount is applied to all items in your order.

 

I'll probably grab a Nendo to use up the TOM points I've been sitting on. (-edit- ordered Nendo KH Sora)

 

-Update-

Coupon period extended to August 7.

Thanks for posting the link to The List. I don't visit the blogs section there anymore (just subscribed to Kaneel's, though, heh), so I was hoping someone would link to that entry here.

Not much for me this WonFes, but that's good ^^; Nendo Pyro Jack (Jack O'Lantern) is the best announcement for me. I'm also a little annoyed that there's going to be a third Kirby Nendo, because if the accessories are as good as Ice Kirby's, I'm going to need that one too D:

I would be happy if GSC would release an accessory pack you can use with pink Kirby instead of having to buy a whole other Nendo. You just know Beam Kirby is going to be sweet though ^^;

 

The List has some figures I'm interested in. Mostly anime related, but a few video game figures too.

 

GSC's new Pop Up Scale line sounds interesting. Time will tell what size and quality they can offer for 3800yen.

 

I don't play this series, but funny and cool to see R-Type getting a Figma:

Same here, and yeah *sigh* :???:

I guess the Dariusburst CS figma (Iron Fossil and an exclusive Knight Fossil variant) did will enough that FREEing is continuing on with more shmup bosses. Bet this R-Type figma's going to be just as expensive as those earlier two were.

Surprisingly decent HS bargin sale. By the time I checked it out an hour after it had started, the one I was most interested in was already sold out (Freeing 1/8 Mash Yukata ver). Possibly should have picked up Orca's 1/6 Sagiri at 68% off, but I needed to focus more on upcoming pre-orders.

 

Fire Emblem If Sakura Nendo for 3333yen is an alright discount and still in stock at time of posting: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10495781
