That's a hell of a good point bonus. Too bad there's nothing I particularly want :cold: If only their selection was more on par with AmiAmi, HLJ, et al.

Already mentioned this in MFC's sales thread (as usual), but Blizzard Gear is having a Black Friday sale. Includes a few Overwatch Nendos and the Tracer figma for 50% off. They are also having Daily Deals through the end of November; some of these include B2G1 on select Funko Pops on 11/20, 40% off select plushies on 11/21, and $99 for select statues on 11/23.

Harry Potter Hermione Granger Nendoroid (June 2019):

That's a hell of a good point bonus.

Especially for premium members. And if you're going to buy anything from TOM, there is no reason not to become a premium member first since they immediately give you back more in points than you spent on the membership.

 

I just looked ahead at my hefty December pre-order list... I'll be watching this sale from the sidelines ^^;

I tried to stay away from all these BF figure deals, but I ended up ordering Nendo Homura Kimono ver from HLJ for 2500 yen. I'm weak to kimono/yukata figures.

Then my Target had a single Figma Genji at 70% clearance ($80 -> $24), so that happened too.

My poor wallet. I'm hoping some of my December orders get delayed (and considering how most of it is GSC figures, I don't see how they can release them all at the same time).

If you haven't checked already, KotoUS has some good prices and selection in their BF sale.

Figure-wise, just the Nendo Homura I mentioned above. I focused on video games and Sentai's amazing anime sale.

A few game things, but not too much (no figures).

So what did everyone end up getting for black friday?

Didn't do any Black Friday sales, but Cyber Monday (and Sunday) were pretty good for me. Mostly picked up graphic novels and manga, including a few gifts, via Right Stuf, Things From Another World, and Fantagraphics. Did some non-media gift shopping at a couple of online specialty stores and got a few more books as gifts for sale at Amazon (with the $5 off book coupon).

The only figures I picked up: shifted my HLJ preorder for the third Nendoroid More faceplate set to TOM to take advantage of the 50x points deal (and use the annual premium membership coupon for free shipping), and preordered Bell Fine's Tsuyu at CDJapan to take advantage of their points promo (it also helped that she's 15% off there, and preorders hadn't closed yet). Placed a separate order at CDJ for a Switch otome game w/English subs due out in Dec. and an already-released calendar my husband wanted for additional bonus points and so that they'll ship sooner than Tsuyu.

Most of my Christmas shopping is now done, and I got a bunch of cool stuff for myself at very nice discounts, so I'm pretty happy with how this year's sales went. As usual, Right Stuf's holiday sale is nowhere near over yet, so I may be picking up even more manga in the coming weeks (though I'll try not to!). Going to donate for Giving Tuesday, but not sure where yet, though I have some ideas (ETA: I went with the Camp Fire Relief Fund at the North Valley Community Foundation).

Ended up picking up two figures at TOM 10 minutes before the sale ended. Expensive, but gave me like $210 back in TOM points.

 

Actually, I could have sworn I should have gotten like $240 in points. Hmm.

 

NGNL Izuna and 2B DX, btw.

preordered Bell Fine's Tsuyu

Sweet! What do you think of Bell Fine's Ochaco? I'm still not convinced to order her, while their Tsuyu was an insta-buy for me.

 

The upcoming Kotobukiya Midoriya is looking good. I'm definitely watching that one, as well as the other heroes in Koto's pipeline.

 

NGNL Izuna and 2B DX, btw.

I want a NGNL Izuna so bad, but I want her clothed...

 

Did you buy one figure and then use the points on the second, or did you pay both out of pocket and are now swimming in points Scrooge McDuck style?

She looks all right. The face they went with was surprising at first, but it's in character.

I like her, but not nearly as much as Tsuyu, who is one of my favorite MHA characters (as is Tokoyami, but he'll never get any sort of figure ;_; ). I rarely buy scales in the first place, so picking up Tsuyu is a big deal for me. So nope, won't be getting Ochaco.

Lol, I'm swimming in points. About $300ish ($100 from before). I didn't buy anything the last two sales, and outside of nendos, I've bought maybe 5 figures last year. So this should be enough to fund most of my purchase next year.

Max Factory tweeted that not only is Figma Bakugo actually being made, but Figma Midoriya is getting a re-release to go along with him \(^o^)/

Please don't blame thank me for falling going into the Nendo pit rabbit hole.

 

If you're not already signed up, MFC is a good place to keep track of your Nendos (and other figures): https://myfigurecollection.net/

We have a CAG club there. We don't do anything, but it's a nice way to check out what other CAGs are collecting: https://myfigurecoll...n.net/club/1219
