It is hard to say because she is an original character and doesn't have a name yet, at least not on MFC.

Her item ID on MFC is 806318, if that helps.
Totally expected it to be the new Ban! one

So I played one of those Android games where you can control a crane machine and won some fate series prize figure. Now just waiting on if I get it. Lol.

That Edward looks so weird to me. It basically looks like a regular person with a big ol' anime head.
Yeah I've noticed that threezero sculptors kinda struggle on some of the more anime looking faces, main reason why I didn't pck up the other dorohedoro figure because the face just straight up didn't look good.

Ah, I see. She's cute. I do like Rocket Boy's figures. Along with Skytube, they'e probably my favorite manufacturer of lewds.
Rocket Boy doesn't do much for me normally (and neither does Native for that matter), but this one is an exception.

I personally like Q-Six's lewd output. Their sculpts tend to focus on thick, whereas Rocket Boy figures have a leaner overall appearance. I just like the former a bit more.

Any chance there's a trick to getting Ikea's shipping for a Detolf to not be horrifying? Like, it was showing $100 to ship the $60 unit. It's a bit of a drive and I'll need my dad with his truck to help out, so I'm looking at needing to wait a couple weeks till he can find time and take a decent chunk out of my day because of that crazy fee.

Nah, that sounds about right. You have to understand anything over a certain size has to be shipped freight. Your only other option is to physically go to an IKEA yourself and buy it there.

I mean, I guess it's just that I've ordered larger, heavier furniture from other sources and gotten free shipping plenty of times, which is what's throwing me. But yeah, it is what it is, so I guess I've just got to wait till things align so I can go pick it up.

Man FUCK....I knew Guts was coming but man he looks sooo gooood, and now I gotta consider the brothers too?! SHIT
Whoah yeah you're fucking right. They look ridiculously good. Do you know when any of these have a release date?

I'm so down to get Guts, Ultraman, and the Elrics lol. Fuck my wallet I need these bad.

lol yeah that guts is definetly gonna be mine, I dont think any of these have release dates yet since since they usually go up for pre order first then release several months later. The only other threezero figure I got I pre ordered and it released about a year and some change later so they'll be a wait ahead for any of these for sure

Somewhere.
Pop Up Parade Miku is up for order. GSC has a page about the new figure line.

POP UP PARADE is a new series of figures that are easy to collect with affordable prices and releases planned just four months after preorders begin! Each figure stands around 17-18cm in height and the series features a vast selection of characters from popular anime and game series, with many more to be added soon!

Cheaper than Nendoroids. Very nice, GSC. This Miku is very simple but well made, let's see how the final product holds up (since I'm very interested in the Makoto from this line).

Reproductions can be lower quality sometimes right? Been itching to pre-order the reproduction of Kusuriuri from Mononoke on AmiAmi

Uh. No. They still use the same molds and everything. The only sticking point is that some collectors (none that I've ever met) are concerned with which release the piece is from. Most people just want the figure.

I guess it's in the wording. Some places use the word "reproduction" while others use "re-release" or "re-issue." Though rest assured, it's all the exact same thing.
 
Looks like Kotobukiya is also launching an ArtFX Premier line. These are still 1/10 like the ArtFX+ figures, but I guess they're more elaborate with the poses and the bases and such? Pricing is said to be in the $140-$150 area (LOL!)

Thor looks cool, but yeah, that price for a 1/10 figure... I wonder if there is a sizable market for this line.
Iron Studios already does that, their 1/10 pieces retail for $120-$180 and they seem to be doing fine, though I definitely don't think the end products justify the price tag
 
I'm not sold on this line. I love the shit out of Miku figures but this doesn't look that much better than Taito/Sega prize figures at half/quarter of the price.
I doubt I'll buy in, but it economically makes sense for GSC to do this. This past WonFes seems to imply that at least GSC and Max Factory are seeing lagging sales of their scale figures, which is why there were so many new Nendos and figma announced. People aren't buying as many scales because the pricing has long since gotten out of hand. People have cut back or bailed on collecting completely.

That said, I think these will still be sculpted better than your average prize figure. The Goblin Slayer figure that GSC revealed is also part of this line and I think it's a pretty swell sculpt.

Miku looks okay, but I am interested in seeing how the Persona ones will turn out. Maybe I will consider Goro or Futaba (or just look at prize figures of them too if any).

Figure collecting noob here.

I have Mythra preordered with 2/28 projected release. They have not sent out the actual release date and we are close to 2/28 now. Does that mean it is most likely going to be delayed or should I wait a little longer for an announcement?

Almost certainly delayed. My experience has typically been that if something doesn't have a confirmed release date by the middle of it's release month you can expect it to be pushed back.

Aw yeah, the nice Gwenpool figure arrived today, and she's pretty great! Though... they just had to use stickers for the base, huh? I always hate applying those things and wish they would've gone with a printed base, especially because she wasn't exactly a cheap figure.

Did you perhaps get that release date from Nippon-Yasan (who is also now asking 45k for Mythra)? Because they have a tendency to fib when it comes to their release dates. Especially lately I've noticed them requesting payment for things claiming the release is soon, then after that date hits, they'll move the date back to where it was originally. They did this for a Skytube figure late last year that didn't release until this month, but the actual release date never changed.

But as to your question, no release date has been confirmed for Mythra yet. Which isn't surprising because GSC had been dealing with rolling delays for over a year now.

I'm gonna be picking up mine up from the post office tomorrow. I thought I selected EMS shipping when I ordered her but it seems not. I could have had her a few days ago but I missed the mail lady.

I ordered from Amazon JP the day preorders went live.

Has anyone had any experience with damaged figures from First 4? I received one and to do a replacement they want me to make and upload a Youtube video of me smashing the old figure into “one-inch size pieces” with a date and name visible. Thats the wildest thing I’ve ever heard to replace a 30 dollar figure.

That's common practice with expensive resin figures, but it sounds kind of overkill for a cheap PVC one. But if thy said you gotta do it, you gotta do it.

It's just a placeholder date, then. GSC hasn't officially set a date yet, so I expect a delay announcement soon.
Thanks. I’ll keep an eye out for an announcement soon.

Oh god, I just saw THE holy grail of figure (a garage kit) appearing on mandarake. I probably won't be able to see it again (not even on Yahoo JP auction) but I am so broke right now...

Fuck it. Just push the button to confirm order. Please don't let it bought by a random customer who somehow walk into the store. Please.

I should wait it out. I had Pyra pre ordered and i got the payment request for her on the 24th of december with a release set at 31 december prior to that. So in my experience it's just gonna be a last minute thing.

I also have Mythra ordered so i'm in the same boat.

You can't call something your holy Grail without sharing what it is!

Nishikino Maki from LoveLive sculpted by French Doll. He sculpted the entire original LoveLive set and all of them are beautiful works. But only Maki gives me the feeling of love at first sight. The paint job will require a ton of work and skills, but I really need to get my hands on her. She is downright stunning.

appearing on mandarake.
Is mandrake THE site to search for garage kits? I've never really been into asian figures, but I randomly found a kit that I would pay any amount of money for, but from all the searching I did I couldn't find any evidence of it ever being for sale. But I'm totally new to this, so maybe I just wasn't looking in the right places.

This is the one I'm looking for: https://myfigurecollection.net/item/101230
