Thread for these announcements to accumulate. Probably have a fresh batch with Fate/Zero tv series and the (hopeful at some point in the future) release of Mahoya.

So let me get this straight.

So the re-release of Distant Avalon is different to the original 2009 production run?
And that difference is in the included swords ONLY?

Asking as I ordered off Ami just now. This figure is one of few reasons why / how I got into the Fate series, or anything Japanese for that matter. Though I missed out on the initial 2009 run and a few times contemplated the overpriced eBay sellers...

Nah, it's exactly the same in all aspects. The original came with both swords.

And yep, I've met the yaoi fanatics in real life. It's... saddening, and while FSN does have strange M/M ships, I like to think that generally that alley of shipping preference is very rate in TM. You either ship straight or lesbian/bi-sexual with the girls, Rin, Sion, Nero!Saber and Maybe Akiha and Kohaku as prime examples.

I shall reveal my secret - I usually throw out M/M relationships out there for fun, but it does not float my boat. I avoid Yaoi/Yuri stuff like the plague, but it doesn't stop me from finding certain situations amusing...I just don't like putting actual images to the idea :/

As for fangirls...at the recent London MCM Expo there was a Vic Mignogna panel...yeah...I hate those fangirls. You know, the ones who ask him to recite a certain line with them and make this orgasmic moan afterwards *shudders*

EDIT: Also, I like the Nero figure more than the Caster one...I dunno, I guess that despite knowing zilch about Nero and disliking the fact she stole Saber's face and causes confusion with Nrvnqsr (I don't hate her, I'm sure she's a great character in her own right and it's the designer I'm upset at, I just have to wait for the game to come to me) I can admit that her figure is gorgeous and I kinda want to own it along with the Saber; Alter and Lily figures that look to be along the same vein in style.

EDIT #2: I was saving up for my holiday to HK in September when I bought UBW Rin; Saber Nendoroid; ToV Yuri Lowell; ToV Flynn Scifo and Saber Alter from the same vendor in August...imagine how much that set me back. But then, I didn't spend a lot in HK anyway and my Flight/Accommodation was paid for by then :/

As for fangirls...at the recent London MCM Expo there was a Vic Mignogna panel...yeah...I hate those fangirls. You know, the ones who ask him to recite a certain line with them and make this orgasmic moan afterwards *shudders*... Glad I avoided that o.O

It's pretty common for boy heroes in Japan to be voiced by girls, and Ed's seiyuu Romi Park does quite a number of them. Less common in America, though both Luffy and Naruto are women-acted in English.


Same with Al, IIRC.

Al in FMA was done by a boy in America, yes. FMA: Brotherhood, they went with a woman.

He refused to do that line when someone got four words into their question - I dunno why they ask him to do it, it's so lame copying stuff off YouTube :/

There was this one however, a girl asked him to recite a line with her from Ouran High School (haven't watched it) involving drinking tea out of someone's mouth and she practically came right there - it made my skin crawl...*shudder*

Ah man! That queue was insane! We tried for the first one, but stewards stopped people queuing because it was too big - I didn't even want to meet the dude, my brother's a bigger fan; I respect his work, but I feel he's getting a little too big for his breeches as they say. But because of that, I ended up missing the people I cared about - the Eureka and Teen Wolf cast, as soon as we got there (despite having 15 minutes left) they were closing up the booth.

So, my bro and I went for the second queue after Vic's panel, but this time with the added impetus of him dying to ask him a few intelligent questions that he didn't get a chance to ask because he kept getting passed up.

Thank God he's finishing Uni in time for the May Expo, so we can head over on the Sunday (much quieter!) if we can help it. We went on the Saturday this time around...

Oh gosh, I sound like a whiny old bat - sorry! If I manage to get my cosplay ready in time (going as Saber Lily - all hand made) feel free to say 'Hi!' but I'm not a 'free hugger/high fiver'...

Come to think of it...there was a Fashion Show (or something involving fashion) going on at the same time as the Expo over that same weekend. There may have been other events though...there was Memorabilia, but that was done in association with the Expo :/

The older you get, the less dubbing you probably are exposed to. Most of Mignogna's fans are teenagers whose sum total of anime exposure might just be stuff on Adult Swim. And you know, teenagers (plus otaku, plus female) tend to exaggerate stuff...

I don't mind Mignogna myself, I liked the Ouran dub enough to get his signature on it. I can see where he is quite possibly the most overhyped American VA out there, though.

You mean, vocally, or fandom wise? Because when it comes to fandoms, it'd probably be a fight between Mignogna, Crispin Freeman, and Steve Blum for most popular. Vocally, well, kid heroes tend to go to Mignogna, Yuri Lowenthal, Spike Spencer, and Brad Swaile.

As for jerkish VAs, not really. The ones that attend cons and all generally are the more sociable ones in the first place, ones that appreciate the fans (for the most part), so I'd assume a lot of the ones that'd be outright jackasses are filtered partially by that.

Johnny sometimes has the jerk thing going for him, but I think it has less to do with outright being a jerk and more to do with the fact that even he admits he's kinda boring at cons and doesn't really engage as much as he probably ought to. Most people forgive him because lolPower Ranger.

As for jerkish VA's...I'unno...I kinda don't like Steven J Blum all that much (man has my eternal respect for being Spike...but dude seemed to get too big for his breeches and now he's calmed so his respect is creeping back in I guess, especially since I now know he's branched out into Western Animation like Ben 10 and stuff...yes...I watch/ed Ben 10...)

I really love Crispin Freeman and Dave Wittenberg a lot...haven't met them nor trolled their con vids so can't tell you anything about'em. Also I like Yuri Lowenthal; Johnny Yong Bosch and Travis Willingham...oh and Liam O'Brien I adore because of how far he's come along (compare him as Junta from DNA^2 and him as Archer...so much improvement!)

My main beef with VA's is when they get big ego's and rip the proverbial out of what they do. I can't stand that - they're VA's doing a job and I don't understand why some feel the need to go beyond that (such as Mignogna's English versions of anime tracks...) but I guess there are people who'll eat that stuff up :/

Doesn't it say that "for sale in Japan only" on amiami?

"for sale in Japan only" refers to the item only being available to buy in Japan. It does not mean you can't order it and have it shipped outside of Japan, it just means you're not going to find it in any retailers who are ordering directly from the manufacturer in countries other than Japan. There may be retailers outside of Japan who will eventually stock this item, but they will not be getting it directly from Good Smile Company. They will be getting it through a middle man and it will be more expensive because the middle man has made their profit and the secondary retailer will have to mark up the item, increasing the price.


I ordered my Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier from CDJapan, because I had frequent shopper points. Also, it has a 7% bonus on points, so the price of 12,486 yen is more around, like, 11,250ish. But, that's assuming I use my points on a further purchase through them. Also, because I will have spent over 5,000 Yen in a single order there's 500 bonus points awarded. 1 point = 1 Yen. After Saber ships I'll have just under 1,750 points, and I'll have points to carry over from some other purchases. Maybe get a "free" T-Shirt or something to make myself feel like I didn't get ripped off for paying their big prices.

I really should not buy as much from Neowing/CDJapan, but I... am a sucker for points systems. Also, they pack their first pressing bonuses very well. Got a poster with my UBW L.E. BluRay first pressing and it was in a separate box and came in perfect condition.

They will be getting it through a middle man and it will be more expensive because the middle man has made their profit and the secondary retailer will have to mark up the item, increasing the price.

The 'sale in Japan only' appeared back in 2009 after (apparently) GSC's licensed overseas importers complained to GSC that they were losing business to cheaper Japanese-based exporters. So that's CDJapan and notably AmiAmi. So GSC told the Japanese-based sellers to not make their sales too steep for international customers (and rumour had it that GSC was prepared to stop selling to offending Japanese-based exporters). Which is why you now see some big-sale items on AmiAmi's Japanese site but not on their international site. Likewise with Neowing and CDJapan.

That 'for sale in Japan only' from what I understand is to discourage overseas buyers from buying from Japanese sites. So to placate GSC's requirement to repel international, non-Japanese customers; a sort of warning, which in turn placate's GSC's licensed importers.

CDJapan misunderstood GSC's warning and actually took down all GSC (and Max Factory items as well) for a week before resuming sales. But with less attractive discounts.

And I can vouch for Neowing's first-press shipping methods. Extremely well-packed. And I only weaned myself off their points system after they stopped the 100-yen interval limits for points-based payments.

Thank you, Strife. That should've been the first place I checked, but for some reason I have had cotton brain lately x_x

You made me feel foolish, but it's okay because CARNIVAL PHANTASM MUG! I shall pre-order you some time this week! :)

I ordered the Fate carnival phantasm mug yesterday... have had my White Virgin Box on order for a long time. I know exactly the feeling you're talking about re: completionism, fortunately I'm able to draw the line at $200-300 for a second hand USED copy of the original Fate/EXTRA L.E. box just for the sake of the figma. I'm actually sort of happy with myself for this :neco_arc: -- it is kind of disappointing not to have the original fabulous Red Saber in my collection, though.

*beats self up for breaking Figma Saber Extra's stand*

I can't even replace it with the one from one of my other figmas because they all use the hole-in-the back style stand, while Saber's was a half circle thing that fits around her waist (and I broke it ffffffffff)

Kotonoha, have you tried a di:stage? It appears that it has a similar type of holder--it's a little claw that has an adjustable grip.

They can be purchased at AmiAmi here: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIG-IPN-0620

I (http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=FIG-IPN-0800)t's an official Max Factory accessory, and also comes with many other little stand accessories including pinups so that you can put speech bubbles or other "special effect" paper cutouts.

I think that may actually be the same kind of holder that comes with Black Rock Shooter to hold up her cannon thing, which I have.

Saber's isn't quite the same because it's not adjustable, just fits around her waist (you kind of push her into it, which is probably what eventually weakened it to the point of breaking in the first place). I actually have tried to use the BRS thing for her, but it just doesn't hold her as well as the one she came with.

Ah, sounds like the stands that came with those really old first few nendoroids like Hetare Saber, Yasugare Rin, and Charinko Rider. Every single one of those snapped on me when I first tried to use them :(

So my Rins get to sit in their cars instead of standing on those juuuunky stands. Maybe I'll get some di:stages when I can afford them. I'll let you know how they work with normal figmas I have if I do, though you may be right re: Black Rock Shooter figma, I do not have that one though.

Hmm...I came across a copy (Game + Figure) being sold for £140 (about $220)...That's not too bad, since I draw the line at $300+ for an item. I got Distant Avalon for £180 and that was a year before the re-release was announced :/ I would buy Fate/Extra JP LE now, but I'm torn between waiting for the chance to up my credit limit (which I have to do anyway so I can support my Archery hobby...new arrows are hella expensive...) and waiting to see what Ghostlight will release for the EU LE. I know including the Figma is very unlikely, but I'm stupidly optimistic like that...

It's a slippery slope...My collection only began with the crappy figures of Ryu/C. Viper supplied with the SFIV CE...then buying that fake Lily Figma...something broke and I bought Akihiko and everything else I desired on my quest for a real Lily Figma...(QUEST COMPLETE!)

But...everything? I just came across an awesomely priced P3 MC figure...the one I've been searching for...but...my credit card's close to it's limit what with waiting for Amazon to take my monies for Catherine LE and Last Story LE...maybe I can stick it on my mum's and pay her back next month...

I can wait for Fate/Extra JP LE...I have faith that I will acquire that Figma so I may buy Saber/Bride...speaking of which, I need to finish my fanart on that...detail kills me...

EDIT: Just remembered! I still have to confirm my pre-orders for Luke and Saber/Bike figures...

I found a Japanese Fate/EXTRA L.E. "used" with figma included for $213 including shipping, and a Fate/UNLIMITED CODES PS2 L.E. box with Saber Lily figma "used" for $123... I want to buy but I won't be able to afford until April and by then they'll probably be gone. Especially after I just mentioned them ;_;

Oh...I know that pain...I was lucky to find a Fate/UC PS2 LE (with Figma) Used going for about £60~ ($99) bought that with the advice of my bro, not to mention the other copy I had my eye on (new for £123 from the seller I bought Distant Avalon from) had sold out by the time I had the funds to buy it.

Lol! I've got Fate/Extra LE copy on my watch list for $270 (£170)...as a back up in case the other copy I'm watching elsewhere is taken...

I'm really stumped about the Persona 3 MC figure...do I buy it or wait for the seller to respond to my question about providing me with images? What if he doesn't care about my question because the figure's rare as heck anyway and someone'll buy it regardless...
