In Topic: Japanese Video Game Figure Thread

10 January 2018 - 05:01 PM

So random question, I searched and thought this was as good a place as any to ask...
 
I don't normally collect these figures, but I happened to buy one on a whim at Goodwill recently. The figure is fixed, no movable limbs. There's a pin in the right foot though, that's really long. Almost as tall as the whole figure and slides into the foot. I can't tell if it's supposed to be that way, maybe it connects to a stand that wasn't included? It's this Sega figure from 1998 - YURIKA MISUMARU Nadesico

I found your figure in the MyFigureCollection database; the info does match the eBay listing - https://myfigurecoll....net/item/12308

As for the pin, the only thing I could think of is that the figure is hollow. This is a common indicator of a soft vinyl figure, but those often don't need stands. The MFC listing doesn't include any information that indicates either soft vinyl or a stand, but when checking on a couple of more popular figures from the same product line (Utena, Anthy, photo of both), that info came up.

So yeah, it seems like your Nadesico figure originally included a stand (as well as a trading card and CD), and the reason why the peg is so long is because of the material used and the manufacturing process.

Well, just posted my annual "best games I played in the past year" list. Spoiler alert: my top pick is Nier, and like JEKKI, I'll be playing Automata sometime this year, hopefully sooner rather than later. Maybe we'll end up playing it around the same time, just like with Nier :razz:

I also still haven't started EOV, but at least now the holidays are over, and I don't have any pressing extra obligations, so I should be able to find the time... once I've recovered from my jetlag, anyway.

Previous Tabs:

This year's goal is a minimum of 20 games beaten. For games with difficulty settings, all were beaten on Normal/Medium unless otherwise noted. All Windows/Mac games were played via Steam unless otherwise noted. Any games listed twice (for whatever reason) count as one if they're on the same platform. I'm not counting DLC and secondary game modes toward the main total.

In Topic: Black Friday 2017 - what are you hoping to buy

01 December 2017 - 06:53 AM

Now that the Black Friday weekend has come and gone, did you all get what you were hoping to?

From my own wish list: I managed to pick up Disgaea 5 Complete from Target for $35 (missed that amazing Best Buy deal :cold: ). Decided to hold off on the 2DS XL, not that there were many deals for them to begin with, though I did get a Switch Pro Controller on Cyber Monday when Amazon had them for about $10 off :razz:

Prior to Black Friday, I got Metroid: Samus Returns via the B2G1 deal at Target. The other two games I got were SMT4: Apocalypse and Kirby: Planet Robobot; throw in a $5 gift card I had lying around, and each one came to roughly $25 before sales tax.
