What will happen to this line when Part 5 starts this October? Obviously Parts 5 figures will get re-release, but what about beyond that?

Hopefully re-releases of older toys, but I doubt anything else will happen after the possible re-release of part 5 figures.

>>
>>7017246
As shown by the great slump after the last TV anime ended, Jojo SAS cannot survive much without any media support. Hopefully this will rejuvenate the line; part 5 is one of the best in the series.
>>
>>7017254
>>7017252
Yeah, hopefully they'll get to make more characters, and depending on how the series goes, the more popular minor villains could also get their own figures.

>>7017319
Both are complete

>>7017325
I hope Purple Haze and Fugo don’t turn into another Okuyasu situation, I would be really upset if I can’t complete my Passione.
>>
>>7017361
They’ll likely shoot up in price without a rerelease but I highly doubt it’d be the same way Okuyasu did. Fugo isn’t nearly as prevalent in his part and from what i’ve heard from older collectors Okuyasu was oddly difficult to get from the day he released.
>>
>>7016622
Someone should make an updated version of the SAS soundplates. I don't see Valentine's or Johnny's.
>>
>>7016622
I kind of have a problem. So, the Jonathan SAS has a peg that you can use to put onto the stand, so he can fit with his backpack on, but I'm trying to take it off, and it's not working. Not a huge deal to me, but I'd like to get it off. Any way I can do that?

trish w/stand are all that I need to complete my passione, but I'm too lazy to get them. Can anybody convince me? Will the anime make her price skyrocket?
>>
>>7019658
Their sculptsand paintwork are really good but they have limited articulation (especially Trish). That said, they can usually be found stupidly cheap (between like $15 and $25). I think I paid $15 each used on Amiami. Anime will likely cause a spike in price bit I don’t expect it’ll be particularly extreme for most of the cast. Main ones to keep an eye on IMO will be Giorno 1st, Bruno 1st, Mista 1st, Gold Experience 1st, Sticky Fingers 1st, and King Crimson 1st. This is of course barring rereleases.
>>
>>7019684
Rereleases are pretty likely.

Any big Jotaro pics around yet?
>>
>>7020153
This isn't too bad, but you really gotta paint those elbow/shoulder/knee joints, I'm pretty sure you can just pop the kneecaps off. Also the belt buckle. Also I'd have made the top and bottom a little less contrasting, but that's just personal preference I guess.

forgive the dumb question, I haven't bought figures in over 5 years. I'm back now to get diego and D4C. I see Funny and Johnny available on most sites, but not the other 2.

Doubt it. There's a lot of unsold / unwanted Part 5 in Japanese stores like Yodobashi and Mandarake. They'd be crazy to flood more.

>>7019658
I got Trish at ¥1000 not that long ago. Worth it at that price.
>>
>>7020259
The figure looks great, but the joints being unpainted/partially painted just makes it look sloppy. Try fixing it!

>>7020736
>>7021115
>>7020474
As for the joints, I did paint them, but it gets scraped off as soon as you articulate it. The figures shiny texture doesn't like watered down paint either. Once I've settled on a pose for him ill paint them properly.
>>
>>7021135
don't use watered down paint. sand down the joints a bit and let it dry before articulating- like a full day. spray with sealer

Of the stands that are already in production, which stand would thematically fit the best with a Billy Herrington figma?
>>

>>7022108
In terms of Billy's build, Part 3 Star Platinum should fit the bill. The loin cloth sort of compliments Figma Billy's overall look. Funnily enough if a Van Darkholme figma existed then White Snake would be a perfect fit if we're doing more Gachimuchi people.

Though there's the additional issue of which Billy we're dealing with since there's the Halloween, New Years, and Birthday variants on top of the original release. If we're working off design then Birthday Billy lines up with White Snake with an odd sort of color contrasts between the two with black against purple accents. I guess New Years Billy would still work with Star Platinum but you have to get the 2nd release for the blue colorway to match that Billy variant.

Halloween is tougher and I can't quite get a combo together at the moment.
>>
I wanna skip Johnny first and get the second because I like it better, but I'm mad scared to do so. What do you guys think is going to happen in the coming months?
>>
>>7022148
What about WF King Crimson? Closest thing outside of The World color-wise, but Halloween is somewhat finicky to match. The Hand also comes to mind as a quasi-spanking stand, but I feel like he'd deserve something more powerful like GER

The colors on Halloween are the base to work off from and WF KC is the closest and sort of works thematically with a more eccentric design but I'm also considering Billy's bigger build personally so Star Platinum has my general vote. Worth a match and WF KC is pretty cheap when I got him.

physically impossible. Most sites either use the stock image from Medicos, or they find a pristine one take a photo of it and use the same photo for every figure so you don't see the issues.

I even emailed Ami and Jungle at one point if they had photos on hand or could take one and they both gave me the same runaround "we get so many figures that it would take too much time to get a photo of each box so we use the same one." Even people on Ebay do it, I've seen the same photo on Ebay that they use on Mandarake.

>>
>>7032280
Both. Like how much for one and how much for two.

>>7032270
Depends on where you live and how you have it shipped. I live in the US and RSAL can run between 800 JPY and 1300 JPY. Only time I’ve used EMS ran me like 3000 JPY. Airmail packet tends to run 1500 to 2000.

Mandarake is 100% legitimate and accepts paypal too. Sometimes there are stock issues but nothing that will screw you over. 500jpy fee of you order is under 5k
>>
>>7032325
It accepts regular debit cards, too, I assume?

RSAL like a month.

Air Packet about 10 days.

EMS 3 to 7 days.

>>7032327
Can't go wrong with mandy, I got 80% of my stuff from them over the years, new and used, never disappointed, not even once. I sually pick SAL and it runs me 800-1000 yen to get to central Europe.

I've been thinking about picking up a WF Dio Brando to go along with my Wf Jonathan. Is he a great figure, or am I not missing anything special?
>>
>>7034657
It's just a recolor but the SAS in general is decent all around.
>>
>>7034657
He's pretty nice. Looks better as well since he doesn't have revolting clown shoes of the first release.
>>
>>7034657
I have him and I love him, just be warned that the yellow might be darker than what the promo pictures show.
>>
I just picked up Jotaro 1.5, but id like to have the punch effects that come with Dio black, and Jotaro 2nd. Do i need to buy the figures to get the effects or can they be sold separately somewhere?
>>
>>7035038
Only buying the figures, unless someone is selling them separated!
>>
>>7035038
That would be Jotaro third tho, not second.
>>
>>7027719
Is Solaris legit, would you say? They have some pretty nice deals on some things I want. It seems like a too good to be true honey dick situation.
>>
>>7035350
I'd like to know this as well.
>>
>>7035350
>>7035355
They are but >nice deals really vary. Sometimes they know how rare some items are and mark it up like crazy and advertise on Myfigurecollection to catch latecomers. Other times they are on par with Mandarake but always compare prices from the initial order and how the aftermarket looks for recently sold figures. Manda is usually my starter point and then you start comparing other second hand sites like Solaris or Jungle Japan.
>>
>>7035350
Solaris works. They take paypal too.
>>
>>7035360
All I'm wondering is if they actually send you the stuff, and it sounds like they're legit so I'm good, thanks for the input. I see some of the prices are weirdly high and some are weirdly low I just want to buy the ones that are weirdly low.
>>
>>7035362
I bought off them a few times so they will but I always side on caution on buying from them since prices jump to high or on par with regular aftermarket.
>>
>>7035362
I’ve bought from them several times. Yeah, they’re legit and pretty fast to boot. That said, both from my experience and what I’ve heard from others, they’re more likely to send your item missing a part. For me personally, I bought a supposedly complete Killer Queen 2nd for like $90 but they sent him without his soundplate. Not the biggest deal and they did offer me store credit (which I put towards WF Josuke) and I’m sure you’d be entitled to return it if anything is wrong.

They announced the winners of the Raffle. Anyone else started the hunt for D4C on YAJ?
>>
>>7035509
Is there a fucking raffle only version of D4C?
>>
>>7035509
I guess you’re talking about the raffle winners auctioning a pre-order of sorts? Those are never a good idea, you’re bidding against all the hair trigger, impatient or overly worried collectors who drop down too much too early.

Best time to bid for event SAS is like a week after the event at earliest.

Hell, by waiting merely a month I’ve saved like ¥3000 - ¥4000 on what it was going for on the day of.
>>
>>7035527
No, the online raffle is for the same SAS as the WF one. They always split the stock between their online store and the event.
>>
>>7035529
What do you usually end up paying?

My proxy got a spot in the lottery and went ahead with the pre-order
>>
>>7035350
It's the site i've used the most, and every figure I've gotten has had zero problems(even the preowned ones) plus prices are decent too
>>
>>7035360
>>7035350
Well prices arent always decent but pretty much do this, check other sites first
>>
>>7035840
I pay more than retail of course (and maybe more than those like yourself who actually gets a proxy to win the raffle, depending on commission) but I think I got Johnny and Valentine for about 10k each last time, which is less than the 12 or 13 I’ve seen other anons claim to pay.
>>
Just ordered Awakened DIO 2nd, is the QC better than the original one, also does it come with any extra accessories?
>>
>>7036231
It comes with a soundplate and if I'm not wrong a SAS magazine and a DVD containing a printable road roller. But I'm not sure all Awakened Dio Second came with those, maybe it was just the ones with the big special box.
>>
>>7036307
All Awakened Dio 2nds came in the big box, the question is if this guy bought the big box or just the smaller box that only has Dio that comes out of the big box. Either way it comes with the sound plate and either way he can get the files for the roadroller online if he wants to build it, so it's not a bad idea to just buy Dio himself and not the big box.
>>
So, Jolyne has been popping up for 10k regularly on mandy, in fact there's one that's been sitting there for days, impressive. So, is there some deep business insight I'm missing or does Medicos just hate money? I mean, I'd buy another Jolyne considering mine came with a busted torso.

If Bandai makes JoJo SHF and they look as nice as Shinkocchou Seihou figures I'd buy them, it would be a harder sell if it only looked as good as something like the newer DB SHF where they skip a lot of paint apps and shading and whatnot but I'm sure they'd still be fun and worth a buy. I thought Max Factory's Figma Jonathan prototype looked pretty weak so I hope they'd go back to the drawing board and come along a ways before they tried to actually release anything.
>>
>>7036908
I'm just starting out collecting SAS now but even if SHF or Figma started making JoJo figures I don't imagine would jump ship to them. I imagine the SHF figures would lack any good paint details and the Figmas would cut on a lot of articulation, I find that Medicos tends to get a nice balance usually.

It would be nice to be able to mix and match though, if Medicos aren't going to ever redo some older figures, I'll gladly take a SHF Part 3 Polnareff lol
>>
>>7036924
Is the pic their prototype?
>>
>>7036938
lol true. He looks weird, but even if there's no remake, I'd still get him.
>>
>>7036941
As far as I know yes that is MF's cancelled Jonathan Figma.
>>
>>7036908
To compare from Medicos I have to see if they throw some effort on it. GSC has impressed me with various figma releases and I can see a quality release. Articulation will either be figma standard or they will take notes from recent stuff like figma Cu Chulainn which is the most articulated figma so far. A Figuarts JoJo figure will be pretty interesting and I wouldn't mind seeing how they handle the sculpt work and articulation with developments like the 2.0 DragonBall Figuarts shoulders and legs.
>>
>>7036313
Oh. Only the smaller box, so that means I'll only get the sound plate. Guess that's okay for £26.

For some odd reason my Wonfest Giorno came with two sound plates. I only hope this doesn't mean some poor dude ended up with no sound plate at all. Such a strange mistake.

Btw I gotta say this Giorno makes the 2nd blue edition look like it belongs in a trash can. It also matches Gold Experience 1st amazingly with all the purple shit going on.
>>
Ok guys, help me out here. Which pairing is better; Contrasting color between stand/stand user or similar colors?

Contrasts if they mesh right and line up with Araki's approach to color theory but sometimes you only have certain colorway releases to work with so some are more limited than others.
>>
>>7040511
I usually like how the manga/anime makes the color choices, but if you like the Stands better than the characters, get Stands that are more vibrant in color compare to their Masters. If you like the characters more, just do vice-versa. Similar colors can make everything blend together. Plus this is Jojo we're talking about. There's basically no such thing as a set color scheme.

If the colors match too much it's kinda boring in my opinion. Like with Bruno 2nd and Sticky Fingers 1st together for example, that's just too much blue.

Then there's Stands like Wonfest Gold Experience Requiem. Alot of people shit on this figure because it looks like a melon. Personally I really like it together with Giorno 1st because the contrast is so perfect. These figures were made to be displayed together.

Hello there.

I used to collect this line (had around 10 characters) until I had to sold 'em due to medical reasons.

I won't return to this line since Medicos is doing bad decisions about it. But I think I'm gonna buy some of my favorite characters.

One that I really need is Giorno + GER (with the extra head included). Should I wait for an reissue or proxy them now? I don't know if they are expensive or rare. I was out of this collection for almost an year.
>>
>>7040667
I would buy them now if you have the money. If you want to get the anime Giorno (pink), then wait for the re-release. The one that's out right now has had some design problems.
>>
>>7040671

Thanks for the fast response.
And what about GER WF2015? I really want that head, for God's sake. Is it rare or expensive?

>>7040676
You're welcome, my dude. Well, I've never really looked around for it, but on Amazon it's about $105. If you just want the head, look over at the BST threads on this board and ask if anyone is willing to sell one. Mandarake is a great site for buying from what I've heard, but I'm not sure if they have GER WF2015 there.
>>
>>7040694
Dude, what the FUCK. THAT'S AMAZING. Everything ties in so well! You basically got all of the anime colors! Absolutely amazing!
>>
>>7040676
I'm not the same guy, but I got that figure off an auction for like 7500 yen, which is pretty cheap. I think many are put off by his colors, even though he comes with such a sweet head. People are crazy these days, I say he looks better than the boring beige version.

Hello friends, I want to put a Facebook cover dedicated to the upcoming Vento Aureo anime. Can someone provide me with a photo of Giorno(wearing either the pink or blue suit) with the extra head of Golden Experience Requiem (the wavy one)? The photo needs to be in the horizontal orientation, please! I would be extremely grateful. The photo posted is the head I'm referring to. Preferably solo against a beautiful background, but you can use GER if you want to!

When pink giorno gets reissued he's definetly gonna get released at a a higher price, get it now from mandarake. And I don't really know what design problems this guy >>7040671 is thinking of, mine's perfect. Maybe he's referring to the fact that they changed his waist joint to make it slightly better but also a quite uglier.

>>7040694
Blends in great dog, no suprise with such a cool display. Maybe you could try moving it to the other side to show off a bit of guitar? But I'm sure you're doing what you can with what little space you have left.

Anyone else prefer giorno's amber eyes to his blue eyes from the anime?

They look nice, but I prefer the blue eyes since it sorta signifies that he's more Jonathan's son than Dio's since Dio had yellow-ish/amber eyes.

What I would like to see at WonderFest (at least announced, even better prototypes):

- Joseph Joestar (Battle Tendency) Casual Outfit - Medicos SAS (include a Tommy Gun!)
- William Zeppeli - Medicos SAS (with frog and stone)
- Speedwagon - Medicos SAS (with top hat full of blades and the option to equip the toy with hat or without)
- Foo Fighters - Medicos SAS

Yeah, it took quite a while to get them into poses I was happy with, but I'm glad that other people were inspired by my displays. There's a criminal lack of these sort of displays when I would search for them. Guess I'll post my part 5 again since I switched out the blue for the pink Giorno. Hoping the anime can spark some new influence for some of these poses as well.

This is the state of Medicos. Now even when we get a confirmed release.. it doesn’t actually get released.

Whatever next, cancelling WF exclusives? No exclusives at all?

It wouldn’t even surprise me if a WF “exclusive” is just a rerelease of an old figure.

It’s like Medicos are actually trying to be depressingly bad at times.

You obviously weren’t buying SAS when we used to get a new release almost every month. Now you’re lucky to get 3 or 4 the whole year, and chances are they will be exclusives, at least to start with. The line has gotten shockingly shit from what it used to be.
