>Forgot to add this, went offline for a bit. Here's some tips from the previous threads:
For sculpting: use 2-part epoxy putty like Aves apoxie, Magic Sculpt or fixit.
For tools: try a basic carving/sculpting set like the kind arts & crafts stores have. Dental tools have also been said to work well. Also, using a Dremel is recommended. Minimites (the small $20-25 ones) are fine for starting out, but the battery life is poor. Upgrade to a corded one only if you want to get deeper into customizing. They are useful for...

Where to buy >GSC Online Shop - some figmas only are available through their online shop >Amiami - usual place for buying, to some people, shipping is a bit higher due to packaging >Hobby Link Japan shipping is usual lower, but their prices are a bit higher, private warehaouse is available >Hobby Search Japan - items stay in stock the longest >Mandarake - search figma or フィグマ >eBay/Amazon - only if you hate having too much money. Avoid bootlegs, you can spot them as 'Chinese version' >Jungle.jp - Seems like you can fine some good deals here >Check the BST threads, My Figure Collection for any offer/deal

It's a very niche market generally aimed at people with money, of course it's expensive. If you go to a hobby shop to find accessories this scale it's all made with big detailed dollhouses in mind, not weebs making shoebox rooms for their figmas.

I'm not op but I'm also interested. I've seen photos of Tezuka himself with merchandise all the time, but there's nothing recent? (that isn't from that awful movie?) It's a real shame. All those high end Japanese figure makers and nothing aside from a few limited run gashapon looking things...
also, fuck the captcha. Filled it three goddamn times already.
Just preordered this girl here and I'm waiting with baited breath for Seina. What do you do with your Lilies? Anyone got any Pure Neemos, or even those 1/3 dolls? Been meaning to get Sanya and Miyafuji for ages now.
>>5570668 Just on amiami, and she's actually cheaper on Hobbysearch, anyway. And they have Yuyu still in stock there, too. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10380594
They're doing well enough that the new releases consistently sell out and even more telling, aftermarket price has skyrocketed. There's an Aoi on mandy for 20k right now when I got mine for 8500 before Christmas.
