#13496134 Japanese Video Game Figure Thread

Posted by Rig on 21 October 2016 - 02:49 PM

I have shipped all ten or so products from Amiami via the SAL.  Always been gutsy/cheap enough to do SAL unregistered.  I've never had a single problem with any of my orders arriving damaged or the like.  All the boxes are great.  Order usually shows up between 2-3 weeks, and I live in IL.

#13495535 Nintendo Switch Revealed

I love the idea of merging the market.  Phase out 3DS support, and go all-in with this.  One platform.  They continue to succeed with handhelds, but struggle at home.  Mixing the two is likely their best bet to thrive.


Hopefully, we finally get a full-fledged Pokemon adventure up on the TV.  (Yes, I realize this would be several years out.)

I love the look of the Zelda, but not so much the Link.  The items Link comes with sounds awesome though.

#13464700 Street Fighter Funko Pops Preorders

Posted by Rig on 20 September 2016 - 08:29 PM

I'm a kidrobot retailer and it makes me sad when people buy pops lol.

Get me a few boxes of S2 Futurama!  I never got any, and they aren't available anymore!  :(


I hate Funko Pop figures.  Been a Kidrobot collector for a while now.  Pop figures are so bland and there's a bloody billion of them.  (IMO.)

I don't think there's been a third-party GameCube component cable. I think some of those universal ones don't actually use the component?

I'm passing on Zelda amiibo....unless they end up being $5 or so with GCU someday.  The OoT and pixel Link look very nice though.

Absolutely awesome work!  That's a type of setup I'd wish to have in my man cave (someday, when it's house buying time). 

Can the LED's be turned off?  How long was the project, start to finish?


I'll have to look into the Saturn mod you were talking about; I love my Saturns.


What SATA-IDE adapter did you use in the Xbox?  I never considered one of those as an option.  Back in the day, I think 500GB was the maximum drive size (but when we were all still using the IDE drives).  I may have to adjust my softmod to get a bigger drive in there!

#13408857 Best Buy Black Friday in July Sale

Posted by Rig on 21 July 2016 - 04:03 PM

I'm not sure why people keep going over this. THESE ARE A BLACK FRIDAY SALE FOR ELITE MEMBERS IN JULY. SO TECHNICALLY, THESE DEALS ARE BLACK FRIDAY DEALS AND GCU DOES NOT WORK ON BLACK FRIDAYS AS STATED IN THEIR UPDATED GCU TERMS. WHAT IS NOT UNDERSTOOD ABOUT THIS? This thread has gone on for pages and majority of the posts are about this. Let's talk about what we picked up if anything. $23.99 for first part Nintendo games and $15.99 for Final Fantasy Explorers were the best deals for me Imo.



Lmfao. I already understood that the GCU was already applied. People thought that it should be applied twice. For instance, $15.99 for MGS V. I didn't have to add it to my cart to see it was $15.99. People thought it was showing it was $15.99 on sale and then the GCU would apply after that. I worded it wrong but definitely not a imbecile you freakin clown.


This was the funniest part of this entire thread.  Wow.  :wall:


On topic:  I ordered Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Wooly World.  I 100% cleared Yoshi on a game rental, but I want it for the collection.  SMM I've never been too terribly interested in, but I figured it's a good buy price now.

We're now like 5/5 on the nickname Eevee thing. I've watched friends (and myself) get what they needed from it.

Kinda makes me excited for more obscure secrets (if any) in this game.

I saw Wartortle for the first time yesterday. Pulled over and so did my friends in the car behind me.

Everyone caught him...except me. Broke out of two Great Balls and ran. >.<

Well, those Nendo Naruto figures will be my nephew's birthday/Christmas presents. He's a huge fan of the series. (I watched a long time ago, so we are still able to discuss it these days.)

I have the original Kogiku release, and a week or so after it came out, my cat knocked it from the shelf.  Fell about 10 feet.  Broke the lantern she holds.


I contacted the manufacturer, asking if I could buy a replacement.  They sent me one with no charge...not even for shipping!  Class act.

My wife was able to pick up Roy today at a store near her.  Ryu and ROB should show up in the next couple days.


So, for Smash, we just need:






...can't wait for them to be released and be done with these!

#13247155 Updated: Nintendo makes official announcement. Super Mario 3D World, DKC:TF,...

Posted by Rig on 13 March 2016 - 09:53 PM

I agree with this. I loved 3D Land, and World didn't quite live up to my expectations.

The OST is sublime though.

Opposite for me. I 100% both games, but, was getting tired of Land near the end. World, however, I love the whole time. Both are great though.
