The two "Japanese Life" Nendoroid Playsets are being rereleased! :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...)

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.

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)!

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.

Viz is releasing a new Yoshitaka Amano artbook in August. It looks like an English-language version of this book.

And speaking of Japanese artbooks, a new one for the Dragon Quest series is due out later this month, though it seems like it can't be preordered anywhere right now for a not-insane price o_O;

Not a deal, but is anyone interested in a Kingdom Hearts orchestral concert tour? Two of the stops are LA and NYC - https://www.animenew...xt-year/.101566

There's a decent number of game music CDs at 20% off in the Square Enix Online Store's current sale - https://store.na.squ...saving-sale/all

Also, CDJapan is offering 10% extra points on all released CDs - http://www.cdjapan.c...d_pointup160429

Was just reading previous posts, and saw something about a Death Note book being at $99, it's dropped on both places listed, and is $67 on Amazon. I kinda want it, but my favorite character is Misa Amane, and I doubt she will be a big part of the book.

I did note Right Stuf's discount in my post, and Amazon's was a given ;) Even with those discounts, it's still too expensive.
