Where did you order yours from?

NY, it's make me not look forward to when they ship zombie
>>
>>6572684
Did you order it at the same time as something else? In which case it might be combined with that other thing and you won't get it until that's in stock too.

If not, did you get a shipping notification? If yes then check out the tracking and if it looks like there's a problem or if you haven't gotten said notification then definitely shoot NY a message.

lazer and zombie are the only things in that order, they were to ship when they became available.

i went with unregistered SAL, and they didn't even give me a confirmation that it shipped until i asked them directly. there is no tracking, there is no spoon, my toys are in limbo and it sucks.
>>
>>6572764

That is your problem right there.

>>6572764
Wait so were they combined or weren't they?

But yeah, welcome to SAL limbo. Every soldier braves it at least once.

>>6572766
i'm very much aware of this now.

>>6572768
they were ordered together, but lazer shipped already (allegedly)

I ordered my Lazer from a Hong Kong seller and it got out just fine.

What site did you order from? I just used ebay and he pops up there from 60-80.

As long as you know now that is good. It's best to learn these kind of things the hard way. I do hop you get it soon though.

To be fair like >>6572771 said you can always just buy one from ebay, and then in november when yours from NY arrives you can sell that one.

It's not the store that's to blame, it's yourself for picking unregistered SAL. You don't get tracking with it and you don't get insurance either. Don't be so cheap on shipping with something you want next time.
>>
>>6572764
did you get a date on when it was shipped?

In the hypothetical situation where all the pre-Decade Heisei riders had gimmick toys similar to what we have nowadays, how would each season's gimmick be integrated into the figure?
>>
>>6572673
I ordered mine registered SAL and I've been waiting over a month for him and Kickhopper, but the tracking finally updated and they made it to the US a few days ago.

I think a third anon was in the same situation, so hopefully we'll all get our Lazers soon now that mine's moving.

Souchaku Henshin was pretty much the gimmick line all the way till Kiva, but some would argue that that's the SHF precursor.

Anyway aside from that line, some riders did have gimmick figures. Zect Riders had a whole Cast-off line. Den O had this one figure that replicates how the armor swaps around for his three main forms. IXA and Kiva had them too but I can't remember what they did.

The cast off figures were spring-loaded so you could simulate the experience of being whacked in the face by flying armor.

There was also the rider and monster line from ryuki. Came with the riders respective monster.
>>
>>6573472
haha yeah man! definitely.
>>
>>6573483
Huh, i didn't know Den-O had a gimmick figure. I did think it was strange that the SH couldn't do the same transforming thing that happened in the show.

>>6573932
I feel slight pangs of regret for not preordering, but then again, the SHF just looked so bad to me. The proportions were all out of whack, his body just looked bad. I just gotta hope he gets an SS a few years down the road I suppose.

>I just gotta hope he gets an SS a few years down the road I suppose.
What is with newfags thinking everything is going to get an SS if they wait long enough?
>>
>>6574154
I don't necessarily think it will, especially given that it was released after the inception of the SS line, but I'm holding out hope cause it's all I have. The alternative is never getting a satisfactory Genm figure, and that's not a future I want to look forward to. Exact same situation with Roborider. It came out post-SS, but they have to have known that they fucked up. They just have to.

And I've probably been before longer than you, kid. I started posting here not long after the SHF line began, back in 2008.
>>
>>6574165
Anon they can release new figures of a character outside of the SS subline, like they did with Black and Shadowmoon.

Also saying you've been here since X is an absolutely newfag thing to do, so is getting upset about being called a newfag.
>>
Is the new Shocker Soldier going to make the current one completely obsolete?
I just want to get one for cheap but I'm poor. I'm getting other figures that are hotter/more scarce this month just so I don't have to deal with future scalper faggot taxes and I want to leave the Shockers on Mandy for later.
>>
>>6574151
I would go with AmiAmi or HLJ.
>>
>>6574177
The original one is still really just fine, and comes with a fair amount of stuff.
>>
>>6574177
You can always get the old ones and use them as background display figures while you have the new Shocker Combatmen in the front as a focus.
>>
>>6574177
Sorta yes, sorta no.

The new one does have a nicer body, both in terms of joints and the sculpting of the boots and gloves. But it has a pinhead, and it still has a super cartoony and simple looking face. Bandai has face printing tech down, dunno why they couldn't have given it a more realistic face.

The old Shocker soldier is too skinny and has pulldown hips, which don't look as nice, but it's not terrible by any means if you don't mind its looks. For a grunt for your enemies to beat up, it's entirely acceptable, especially if you can get it for cheap.

>Bandai has face printing tech down, dunno why they couldn't have given it a more realistic face.
Probably would've driven up the price by heaps, which would be death for something meant to be army built. The new Shocker is pretty much just an accessory for the new Ichigo and Takeshi anyway.

>>6574194
Oh, then yeah the older one would do just fine, its body is pretty smooth and doesn't have any jutting out details except for the belt which is easy to take off.

If you'd like something that show'd off a bit more musculature then maybe the Body-Kun would work better.

Also post it here when you make it, i'd love to see how it'd turn out.

Will do. It will take a while, though, because I'm tight on money.
On that note, I'm starting to think Akarenger could make a good base for Golden Bat but I'm still looking for a skull that is in scale.

reviews for DX steam gun:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1JZlI3O9I8
and DX steam blade:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSZH6Tb8Q-s
>>
>>6574251
so I actually posted the links before I even finished watching the reviews. Seem the steam gun can't recognize all full bottles, or at least just gives off generic sounds for them. I guess that's more for people to hack sounds out of, since I don't believe they'd put in a full reader if it only interacts with two bottles, but I suppose it's wait and see on that.

Still, look fairly solid, at least the steam blade. as a standalone the steam gun seem a bit eh, but together with the steam blade I think it might be worth.
>>
>>6574251
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_wnhZM4kGM

A better video that goes through the sounds, rather than leaving a whole bunch out.
>>
>>6574274
And here's the Steam Sword https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHRIGbrKyyE
>>
>>6574274
>>6574287
Thanks for those. I usually dislike k2eizo's videos, they usually feel a bit disjointed.

Still, my opinions on the toys stand. The steamblade has sufficient actions on its own, and supplements the steam gun that by itself kinda is on the fence in terms of value.

Though looking at both these videos, I wonder if the flip-up bit and the sliding part on the steam blade actually do anything? Since the blade only seems to react to the valve being turned.

When does Build get good weapon toys, or are they not allowed this year?
>>
>>6574423
What's a good weapon toy in your eyes?
>>
>>6574423
depends on what you consider "good"

I think we're well on our way getting better from the desperately low level set by the drill crusher. But if you're expecting something comparable to say... the Gan Gun Saber, let's just say that I wouldn't hold my breath. Unless Build breaks the precedent that started with gaim and gives us a final weapon toy.

>>6574453
>Unless Build breaks the precedent that started with gaim and gives us a final weapon toy.
Build's two upgrades doesn't come with weapons, so it's safe to bet that he'll get a final form weapon.
>>
A nip on Twitter is charging me 85 to preorder Joker and 80 for Genm to pick then up for me and ship them... isn't that a little too high?
>>
>>6574544
Build has more than plenty of weapons so it's safe to assume he'll use all floating weapons

>>6574560
Okay try getting them once they've released

Are the silver and gold zords in the OP solid toys? They look like neat designs on their own, with a fair bit of articulation.

>>6574565
>Okay try getting them once they've released

So that is a fair price...?

Also what's his name I want me some exclusives.

>>6574592

It's minus shipping... the guy on Twitter got a friend of mine Proto-Drive a while back when it first came out. I just can't justify paying these prices and still having to pay shipping...
>>
>>6574594
he doesnt come with the bike, the bike was an event exclusive AFAIK
>>
>>6574668
Well he's picking them up after all
>>
>>6574650
It's an event exclusive. Shit's expensive.

>>6574668
That's probably the pick-up part. You can't actually buy these figures at the event this time.
>>
>>6574668
They are picking up the figures for him. I would pay the amounts given plus shipping. The guy is basically standing in line, paying to get into the event, and shipping it to the U.S. for you.

I was thinking of using the normal head of the Takeya Gaikotsu actually, to get a head that kind of resembles the kamishibai appearance but doesn't deviate that much from the cartoon, but I'm still trying to find anything on how it scales with figuarts.
>>
>>6574521
That's a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I like it.
>>
>>6574739
based on the size, it'll probably have some of its own electronics. Wouldn't be surprised if they stuffed a AAA battery in there.

I feel awful for not knowing about it until it was August. I think he looked fucking incredible in Ex-Aid, and I want his figure so bad.

I just bought some Tamagotchis there a month ago and I was still able to just use my Paypal, did it change that quickly or are you just talking about the change that happened over a year ago with the payment plan option
>>
>>6577313
I was hoping for new Shodo news, but there is almost nothing I want in this wave. Regrettable. I like OOO's design generally, but the sculpt here isn't great, and I dislike the slightly desaturated green they chose.

>>6577316
>>6577317
This is more interesting. Sounds like I'm in for wave 8.

I got min ea few days ago, along with KickHopper and Dark Drive (all of which are beautiful btw). Nippon Yasan shipped this order out September 3rd. So worry not. Maybe the Japanese postal service finally found the crevice in the earth they apparently threw these packages in.

>>6572766
>>6572768
>>6572931
Sure, the fault should logically be on the Japan postal service. However, I myself seem to simply have the worst luck N-Y's (R)SAL shipping. It's like they find shadiest, dankest post office they can get in Japan to take their packages or something. I get SAL shipments from Amiami and HLJ running at the same time as N-Y's shipments and they don't take nearly as long.

Perhaps the universe just hates Nippon-Yassan and wants to spite them through their customers.
>>
>>6576593
yeah, I got hit with that back in april. At first it does kinda feel like the worst thing ever, but now that I've dealt with it for a while, I realize it does have its benefits. but it also means you do have to keep in mind the release dates, and cancel pre-orders if necessary.
>>
>>6577516

Oh, you dont like Zo & Doras ? These are some of my favorite designs. Zo is a perfect blend of classic & early heisei schools of design & Doras is just a great looking monster.

I hope they do Shin at some point.

Doras is cool, but I always found Zo kinda bland. I'll probably pick up Doras as an overpriced single later, but skip the rest of the wave.

Birth actually looks really well done, but I'm not a fan of his design in general.

So....do you have to do this with every order? Also, won't this piss off HLJ? I know they rarely ban folks, but I'd really rather not piss off my favorite retailer.

Anyone here collecting Geed merch?
>>
>>6580027
Yup, why?
>>
>>6580053
How's it doing for you? I'm very tempted. Especially now that you can get the Zero eyes as well. Easy to collect the capsules?
What are you using for display? Got any pics?
>>
>>6580057
I'm enjoying the capusles quite a bit. Not sure if I'll get the King Sword though, as I don't really bother with weapons, even if they are transformation toys.
The Zero Eye Neo is decent, but only if you have the Geed Riser for it, cause otherwise it's just a single voice line and transformation sound for 2000-ish yen. But with the Riser, it gives you a bunch of extra sound clips that are all either good or great.
Capsules are easy and cheap to get, so long as you aren't after specials (Shining Zero, Glitter Tiga etc.)
And I just have them stood up on my desk with the Full Bottles by them. I need to get more display space soon, then I can get some good pictures of them.
>>
>>6580069
I figured acrylic risers/lipstick shelves would work. Do you get the sets or gashapon sets?
>>
>>6580073
Both, DX sets and then pick up the gash versions of Ultras or Monsters/Aliens I like that don't have a DX release.

>>6580076
Sweet. Thanks anon. When Build's releases are less heavy, I may go for some Geed merch.

I kind of wish they'd do knights other than Garo. I'd kill for a Gaia figure.

I also wish Garo merch wasn't so generally expensive.
>>
>>6580632
aw yeah, Gaia and Zoro would be awesome, but I'm afraid they will never come to be, heck, even Leon's was a freaking web exclusive and we ended up getting something whole different from the actual prototype (no roaring head, seriously?)

>>6580651

The lack of a roaring head is especially weird because the animated knights actually roar. It was a weird, if net feature on the Makai Kados.

Anyone else here dumb enough to buy the Build weapons, or ya'll waiting to see if weapons are part of the campaign next month?
>>
>>6581887

For its time, it's pretty good, especially considering how hit-and-miss the rest of the OOO lineup is. Be aware that it's an older design though and Figuarts have improved a lot since then. In particular, he has the trademark old Figuarts super-lanky proportions.

Luckily, Birth, Birth Prototype, and the exclusive CLAWS set (which also comes with Date's milk can) are all super cheap, as you said, so getting Date, Gotou, and all their accessories is really easy.

>>
>>6582460
No. Everyone has to bitch about something. If you don't see a problem, then don't worry about it.
>>
>>6582447
I see what you mean. His design would have looked killer if it was using the newer body.
>>
>>6582459
.The horn is oversized
-Neck pipes aren't the right shape
-He's way too skinny because he just uses Build's Figuarts as a base instead of actually being its own figure
-Looks like he's missing the details on the bolts on the legs except for two places where they overcompensated and made them too big
--Shin armor is oversized
-The way the sculpt breaks around the knees looks like shit
-The way the crotch is broken up by the old style hips also looks like ass

Like good for you if you can't see those as negatives or don't care, but he really looks like a Figuarts from 2012 or something. Maybe if they were gonna sell it for the same price as Build it may be worth it, but you know they're gonna throw it out at full price. It's not worth it for such a halfassed figure.
>>
>>6582608
I think most people are just ignoring the obvious issues with it just because of the price point. I personally won't be getting it if it's over 2600 yen.
>>
>>6582447
Yeah, the SHF looks pretty thin and janky, and the head looks too big thanks to the chest being too narrow, but honestly what this comparison really makes me realize is that the real suit has some pretty shit looking proportions. The leg silhouettes look particularly bad, they could have used more bulk in the thighs or less blocky clunky shoes.
>>
>>6582447
>>6582608
His undersuit is also the wrong colour.

Yes, that's their current campaign.

They tend to just pair things with DX weapons so as to promote sales. Especially seasons like Build that has multiple weapons. Most will probably get the Beat Closer or Drill Crusher if they don't have the latter already

The lighting (at least I hope it's just the lighting) is making the unpainted white plastic look thin and cheap. It's most easily seen in the shoulder pad and kneepads. The panel lining also looks shitty, it's kind of pale and reminds me of...well, gundam marker on cheap plastic. There are also some surprisingly messy paint apps, like the thigh and bicep straps.

I may live to regret this someday, but for the moment, I'm kind of glad I passed on him. His proportions weren't doing it for me, and the shoddy look of him in these shots only reinforces it for me.
>>
>>6584305
Pin it if you're able. If it's too thin, glue it and pray. I doubt you'll be able to get a replacement head for anywhere near "cheap."

MAYBE you could glue it together and try to recast it (or pay someone to do it for you).
