Title: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on February 19, 2015, 02:55:56 pm
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Trouble-Windows-OStan-MEtan-18-PVC-Painted-Figure-Japan-official-/171687895519

it started out with this one, which Pent stumbled onto by accident.
then i went through all 67 pages of the "other" catagory and found a few Netrunner promo figs.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Biscuit-Tan-Netrun-mon-Trading-Figure-2004-9-Japan-Promo-Official-Net-Runner-/181417539631?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a3d53f82f

as an added bonus i can basically guarentee that if you can think of an anime, you can find a product for it in that shop. just search away friends, i found everything from Haruhi to Tetsudo Musume (Train Girls).

if none of us own the first fig by my birthday, i'll be requesting it as a birthday gift from people i know. idc who ends up with it, but i want it to stay in the family.

Consider ME-tan to have been purchased by me. I'll give further details on how I pulled this off without denting my savings account later -w-

Dammit Kari and Pent, after looking around that shop I want to go and blow all my money on Madoka Magica & Kino's Journey folders and pen cases. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

Damn it all, I just bought a couple of Madoka keychains from freakin' China, the shop has good ratings but i still hope it's not a scam/they don't get lost in international shipping. ;^;

Post by: Bella on February 20, 2015, 10:23:16 pm
I do still have to send some items he left behind off to him, so maybe it WOULD be a good idea to just send it to me...

I dunno, I'll check with him and see what he says.

I bought this from Amazon Japan yesterday, cost me around $15 plus shipping. I spent around 30 minutes trying to find the best quality one only to realize only one seller would ship to the US. I'm scared because that seller only described it as good quality but has sun burn or something along those lines.

http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%81%A8%E3%82%89%E3%81%B6%E3%82%8B%E3%83%BB%E3%81%86%E3%81%83%E3%82%93%E3%81%A9%E3%81%86%E3%81%9A-OS%E3%81%9F%E3%82%93%E3%83%95%E3%82%A1%E3%83%B3%E3%83%96%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF-%E3%83%90%E3%83%A9%E3%82%A8%E3%83%86%E3%82%A3/dp/4776791889/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_img_2

I actually gave one of those as a gift to Kari last Christmas :3

(I want to find a figurine of 2k-tan, but she seems to be near impossible to find ;___; )
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Goujer on February 26, 2015, 01:24:43 pm
I believe you can mail order the 2K-tan figure for the set but I think it's from some Japanese company (Pink Company I think)
But I'm not really sure where they'll ship to.
This link might help: http://myfigurecollection.net/item/190173
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on February 26, 2015, 05:20:06 pm
i believe the 2k-tan was limited-time only, but if you find out otherwise, do let me know, i'd love to have her for my set.

also, good condition or not just HAVING one is rare enough, so count your lucky stars. only 2 of us here have them, me and a moderator. i think the moderator gave hers away, too. ;x;

trying my best to navigate Pink Company's site, and it looks like they did a couple series of OS-tan figs, but only from 04'-06', so i don't think you can order it from there anymore. it's not listed in their shopping area, and from the looks of it, there's only one guy running the whole shebang, who hires a couple people off and on as needed. (fun fact: Pink Company helped make the parody anime Lingerie Soldier: Papillion Rose. xD)

on the upside, it looks like they have some Touhou figs on there, including a whole bunch of Cirno keychains in various colours. :0

none of the buying links on the figure collection site had anything, sans Hobby Search, which had listings for the XP and ME figures (1/8, different company, long sold out). though Big Bad Toy Store did have this.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=C4325P0012&mode=vintage

ebay, on the other hand, produced this!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Trouble-Windows-XP-tan-Finished-Product-Figure-Yuyu-/151592308256?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item234b9b0e20

how i wish i could get it for my birthday. :\
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Penti-chan on February 26, 2015, 05:24:04 pm
I have that XP-tan on my shelf, and a related ME-tan on the way :3
(I swear, if there's a 2k-tan in similar style, I'd trade my copy of EarthBound for it >w>;; )
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on February 26, 2015, 05:33:47 pm
i haven't a clue on that and since there's like, no database for this shit i couldn't tell you.

wait hold on i found a few matches by the same companies (Inu-T and 2k here are by Pink Company, XP and ME are by Yuuyu, and the Win-tan Idols are by Kaiyodo).

EDIT: not an OS-tan, but the Corner Store has a fig that's computer-based (second one in the list, click the picture).

I hear that there is a ME-tan plushy with a pull string that will cause her to shake.
I've never seen it for sale anywhere other than some Australian's blog other tan that I've seen no sign of it other than here: http://www.punyu.net/hobby/zzzetc/me-tan2.htm

If you find a 2k figurine or plushie, let me know >w>;

Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 01, 2015, 01:34:41 pm
okay, so here's the plan.

we pay a hacker to track down the isps of the people posting these.

we go on a road trip.

we mug these people for their figures.

we never post about them, ever.
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Goujer on March 01, 2015, 05:01:16 pm
Which would you guys rather have, a complete set of OS-tan plushies or a complete set of OS-tan figures.
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Penti-chan on March 01, 2015, 05:15:12 pm
I needs that 2k, but none of the linked sites have it for sale, or even listed ;___;

As for figurines vs. plushies, either one, TBH. I already have an XP-tan figurine and ME-tan on the way, and want 2k in either a figurine of similar scale or in plushie form
(Hell, I named my desktop after her, and have a portrait of her hanging on my wall, made by Bella :3)

@Kari: Sounds good to me >w>;
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 01, 2015, 06:54:29 pm
@lego: plushies, hands down. not just because i obsessively collect plushies and value them more than my life, but because they are shitloads rarer.
@pent: i don't think the sites actually have them listed (sometimes it's a fluke), but are just a sampling of their "partner" sites. >>;

if all else fails, search "windows"; it's usually broad enough to get some hits (sometimes too many ^^; ).
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Goujer on March 01, 2015, 07:02:03 pm
I've always been more of a plush man because they're soft and don't get dusty.
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 01, 2015, 07:11:34 pm
*currently has a semi-rare anime plush in her lap*
*literally cannot sleep without some kind of plush*

Neopets has instilled a life-long love of plushies into me.
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Goujer on March 01, 2015, 07:22:26 pm
I need to hug something when I go to bed or I can't sleep. I had a one of those massive Shamoo the Whale plushies (that's probably the cause), and when I entered college my parents insisted on buying me a body pillow and that I leave the whale at home.

Haha Neopets those were cool back in the day.
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: winduko on March 01, 2015, 07:38:25 pm
I was into Neopets until maybe a few months ago when some jackasses decided my headcanons were shit and pretended to talk about me behind my back and I cut off all communication with those two.

I lost my enthusiasm for the only thing I feel is worth caring about on Neopets anymore as an unfortunate result. Or fortunate, as one of them was a huge jackass even before the incident. I highly respected one of them however.

Also I can't sleep without hugging something either. If I don't, I'll end up hugging the blanket and get cold as a result. xD
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Penti-chan on March 01, 2015, 07:39:41 pm
I know the feel; I have a pillow I often snuggle with...although I just have a plain white pillowcase on it, since I still live with my parents >w>;;
Title: Re: Lookit All The Figures Me and Pent Found!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 01, 2015, 09:38:39 pm
the first and last time i tried sleeping solo i kept waking up with horrible night terrors. i woke up maybe 8 times over the course of a night and could actually feel the dreams (as in, when i was bitten by the rat or had the giant moth clinging to my neck, i felt it for real), so i noped the fuck out of that one and decided "it's my life and my sleep and anyone who doesn't like it can shove it".

as such, i continue my quest for rare anime plushies.

to be fair they were mostly giving them as promo items to devs at a conference and the only price i heard of was over $2k american. may have been bundled with software; i can't think of it costing that much on its own. :\
