#13749944 Japanese Video Game Figure Thread

Posted by R. Kasahara on 21 June 2017 - 09:35 PM

I love that people complain about figma prices despite scale figs costing more. Also, God damn do i want her. But that price.
http://www.amiami.co...RE-031054&rank=

To be fair, comparable action figure lines (S.H.Figuarts, Nendoroid) haven't had their prices go up as drastically. figma prices really are an anomaly, and it's not like they're being made in a bigger scale or something to make up for it.

tl;dr: I will continue to complain about unreasonable figma prices :razz:

Really love how Ann turned out.

Ehhh. With that back, that figure's gonna wind up on Escher Girls before long :razz:

I like the Koto exclusive Protag., but I'm allergic to current scaled prices.

The price for figma Samus (Metroid Prime 3 ver.) has been announced: ¥7,222

Plus, she comes with only a few accessories (alternate cannon and hands, Morph Ball... that's about it).

:cold: :cold: :cold:

She doesn't seem to be up for preorder yet, but personally, I'll be waiting for her to hit the Bargain Bin at Hobby Search :razz:

figma Atlas (from Portal 2) is up for preorder: AmiAmi (7120 yen) | HLJ (7740 yen) | Hobby Search (7334 yen)

 

Also, there's no release date set for P-body yet, but guessing he won't be far behind. Think I might wait for a sale for both of them...

JFC this WonFes. The List isn't up yet (ETA: but now it is!), but here's the newly announced figures (so far) I definitely want to get:

- Nendoroid Face Parts Case, Pikachu ver.
- figma Pixie (Shin Megami Tensei)
- Nendoroid More Suits
- figma Utena
- Nendoroid Alphonse Elric
- Nendoroid Lillie (Pokemon Sun/Moon)

...and the maybes:

- FREEing Shinji and Kaworu
- Nendoroid Ice Kirby
- Nendoroid Morgana (Persona 5)

 

Also, figma Samus (Metroid Prime 3 ver.) got a paint job and new, much better sculpt (that was actually revealed yesterday), and figma Ulala now has a painted proto as well. Still want both, still hoping they won't cost too much.

Anyone know the best place to get wonfes/toyfair info?  Everything I've seen has seemed sporadic and unorganized.

Though the presentation's a bit haphazard, OhnoRaptors' Tumblr is my go-to for WonFes photos/reveals/etc. She does an amazing job collating this stuff - http://ohnoraptors.tumblr.com

For the super-organized list of figure announcements and updates, there'll be one posted in the MFC blogs as usual, though you may have to wait a day or two after the event's over.

Toy Fair, I'm not so sure, though Japanese figures revealed for the first time there (Square Enix stuff, basically) will likely get entries in the MFC database rather quickly (and Raptors is likely to post pics from there as well).

And speaking of both events, it's pretty crazy that they're the same weekend this year...

The second series of Final Fantasy Trading Arts Mini figures went up for preorder on Ami, and the first is being rereleased.

These are small even for trading figures, but they're cute and well-made. I participated in a split to get Cloud, Sephy, and Squall from the first set, but the lineup in the second means I'm going to be getting a whole box of those. Tina/Terra's inclusion is going to make that expensive Magitek Armor even more tempting, too >_<


#13572389 Nintendo Switch Discussion Thread

Posted by R. Kasahara on 20 December 2016 - 05:54 PM

Fine, graphics aren't everything, but it's hard to attract third party developers when they basically have to work backwards to make a game work on your console. And yes, I've seen the list of third parties who have committed to support the Switch so my point might be disregarded, but those same types of third party "commitments" lists existed for the Wii and Wii U and we all know how that turned out.

Don't forget that the Switch is the successor to the Wii U and the 3DS. That said, Nintendo handhelds have long had great third-party support, so I can see the same thing happening with the Switch. At the very least, it will probably be a solid JRPG machine, much like the DS and 3DS.

Anyone who's hoping for the Switch to have the exact same types of non-remaster AAA games that the PS4 and Xbox One have is kidding themselves. That sort of thing hasn't been Nintendo's focus for a while now.

figma Phoenix Wright is starting to go up for preorder at the usual shops (AmiAmi/HLJ/Hobby Search). The GSC shop bonus is Nick's "embarrassed" face. Big Ace Attorney fan that I am, no way I'm passing that up, but I do have an "Objection!" to the price :cold:

Nendo WW Link ($15): http://www.gamestop....d-figure/122138

Saw that on the CAG Twitter and boggled. I hope Nendo WW Zelda eventually gets deals like that :razz:

Also thought the "by ThinkGeek" on the Skyward Sword Link's page was amusing/cringe-inducing. ThinkGeek's quality is nowhere near Max Factory's.

ICYMI, the Sephiroth (AC version) Play Arts Kai is now up for preorder at the usual shops.


That Sephy! :drool: That price! :cold:
 
(Incidentally, this is the first time I won't be buying a Sephy Play Arts...)

Do u know any other Music CD sites? Especially selling Chinese/Hong Kong albums?

YesAsia and Play-Asia, both mentioned in the OP, are based in Hong Kong and carry official Chinese/Hong Kong releases.

Many cheap Chinese/Hong Kong game music CDs are actually bootlegs of Japanese CDs. Even if it wasn't against CAG rules, I would never list sites that obviously sell such items here.
