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 >_<

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.

Now the Nendoroid Western Life playsets (MFC links: A and B) are being rereleased! :whee: :whee: :whee:

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...)




#13427860 The Video Game Soundtrack Deals Thread (OP Revamped 04/28/16)

Posted by R. Kasahara on 09 August 2016 - 07:48 PM

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.

Ooh, look what's coming out in September: The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Music Collection

No tracklist yet, unfortunately. I originally spotted it at CDJapan, which is taking preorders (other shops probably are, too).

Hobby Search bargain sales have started again! I'd been hoping for an HS sale with a sub-6000 yen price for the Greatest Idol ver. of Miku and was not disappointed :D Also grabbed issue 12 of Miku-PACK.

Ulala is really unexpected.

Hopefully it means more figures of Dreamcast-era Sega characters in the near future. For starters, I'd really love a Vyse outside of that expensive and fragile First4Figures statue.

Posted by R. Kasahara on 24 July 2016 - 04:37 PM

So, I mostly stayed off MFC yesterday but still found myself sucked into WF news (thanks MFC friends on Twitter!). My favorite announcement:


figmas are getting waaay too expensive, but I need Ulala so badly, chu chu chu :hot:

I'll probably also get the Evangelion Parfoms. Also, the painted Phoenix Wright figma looks great, but they're still showing him pointing with the wrong finger (and I still want Edgeworth too)!

ETA: links

My little brother has been looking for a bunch of Yo-Kai watch stuff. Mainly snagging full boxes of the medals and what not. He was looking at SamuraiBuyer but the shipping fees are a bit much especially seeing as you pay for shipping twice.
 
Any ideas where he could find boxes of the medals for reasonable prices online? I know you guys mainly collect figures here but thought of all the places on CAG this group would be the most knowledgeable on the topic!


By "medals", I presume you mean things like these? - http://hlj.com/scrip...&GenreCode2=fun

HLJ was the first shop I thought of (plus they're having a big sale right now), but AmiAmi and Hobby Search would likely have Yokai Watch medals as well.
