Seriously? Everything displayed on that page is kitsch garbage. If I wanted to support the series, I'd buy the OST, at least the OST is very good.

Define kitsch.

It's WonFes, so most of the stuff is unpainted as a matter of course. If you just don't like figures, well, can't really say anything, other than it's silly to complain about things that purely exist to be collectable.

As for supporting series, well, for better or worse, DVD/BD sales + figures are basically the most powerful way to support a series. CD purchases help too, but not as much.

And when I say DVD/BD, I mean the exorbitantly priced Japanese releases, which are probably like 30~50 dollars+ per episode.

Nah, obviously it's subjective and that was the point you were making, and I get that, but when I viewed that page, "kitsch" was the first word to pop into my head. So since this is the Internet, I typed it out. Bring 100 people from around the world and show them those figurines and I'm pretty sure something along the lines of kitsch would be the universal consensus. And yes, yes I know they're niche products so they're not meant to have mainstream appeal, but what I meant to say is, that calling them kitschy is not outrageous.

I wouldn't say I'm complaing, I merely said I'd not buy them, expressed bewilderment that anyone would and suggested a better series related purchase, but I didn't attack anyone who would buy them, so in my book that's not complaining.

And meh, since you brought up BD/DVD sales:

27,004  *5 Ore no Imouto [BD+DVD]
17,470  *1 To Aru Majutsu no Index II [BD+DVD]
12,392  *1 Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto [BD+DVD]
11,694  *2 Hakuouki Hekketsu-roku [DVD]
*7,646  *2 Tantei Opera Milky Holmes [BD+DVD]
*7,598  *3 Shinryaku! Ika Musume [BD+DVD]
*7,091  *1 Yosuga no Sora [BD+DVD]
*6,788  *1 Motto ToLoveRu [BD+DVD]
*6,451  *2 Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls [BD+DVD]
*4,186  *1 Sora no Otoshimono f [BD+DVD]
*3,368  *1 Otome Youkai Zakuro [DVD]
*2,867  *1 Panty&Stocking with Garterbelt [BD+DVD]
*2,754  *1 Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai
*2,557  *1 Arakawa Under the Bridge 2 [BD+DVD]
*2,341  *1 Fortune Arterial Akai Yakusoku [BD+DVD]
*2,052  *1 Bakuman [BD+DVD]
*1,789  *1 Tegami Bachi Reverse [DVD]
*1,718  *1 Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru [BD+DVD]
**,740  *1 MM! [BD+DVD] (DVD:740~1,123)
**,730  *1 Kuragehime [BD+DVD]

You need to cross about 3000-3300 discs sold per volume(at average budget it's 3000, the so called Manabi Line) to start earning profit. So at this point, even though I was the one to mention supporting the series, I have to retract my point and say that for PSG it's pretty much pointless. Even if the merchandise sells well(and I fancy, it won't) they won't really make a decent profit. If they make a 2nd season, they'll make it in spite of it not being a moneymaker(ala Mitsudomoe).

Sorry if i offended your feelings by calling the shit you like "crap" sir, now, my question was serious.
Why would you want unpainted figures? I don't see the point. Specially if you're not going to paint them yourself.

I can't tell exactly how much that stuff costs, but from my preliminary estimates I have come to the conclusion that you guys hate money. Still to each their own.

Warhammer fans, asshole.

I'm not into it, but I understand the appeal because I hate toys that I don't create myself. You can't build unpainted figurines, but at least you have authority over color.

They're incomplete and they weren't being sold at WonFest. Most of them shipping out in summer.
HURR HURR
Seriously, then even had unpainted figurines at Comic Cons.
It's a pretty damn common practice, to showcase incomplete figurines.

Figures are sold as both kits and completed.

Kits are cheaper, since you save the assembly line labour that is used to paint most anime PVC.

There's a reason why figurines cost from 70 upwards to 100+ a pop. They're hand sculpted, cast PVC, that is assembled by hand and painted by hand, usually with airbrushes. It's all Chinese labour, but it's trained Chinese labour.

By buying a kit, all the producer needs to do is make the cast, produce he PVC, and then you do the rest yourself, just as most Gundam kits are unfinished--you are expected to finish the final details using really fine felts or paints specifically made for the purpose of painting Gundam model kits.

Finally, kits make it affordable for amateur (re: guys who can't afford a factory/assembly line) release figurines too, and Wonder Festival is one of the major figurine events where a large number of indie figurine sculpting/production circles go to hawk their limited run goods of which probably only around 20 to 50 exist.

I love the stripper pole one... but it's bad enough I have a poster of all the girls from Haruhi in bunny costumes, in my room. I don't need to do anything else to make my parents sweat, haha.

Yeah but your a lady it is different for your sex. You can pass it off as having cute stuff. It is generally considered creepy for guy. I got busted reading manga at work today and the guy asks if I was into comic books. I just went with fuck yeah, I gotta find some way to kill 8 hour while I'm stuck with you.

The one's with the large heads and small bodies are the ones that struck me as the most kitschy of the bunch. They remind me of them plastic trolls.
Mathias wrote:The statue of David isn't painted. Who would want that?

Mathias when you play "the devils advocat", as you like to refer to it, you tend to write horrible analogies. Like really, really, really attrocious analogies, this is like the 3rd one that was written by you, that has me seriously scratching my head over how you could actually think this demonstrates a point.

So if this was intentional trolling, more power to you. But if it was meant to convince someone that those figurines shouldn't be dissed because the statue of David isn't painted either, then you fail rhetoric for life. Try comparing things that are somewhat, you know, analogous.

But yeah, as Glahardt mentioned those aren't complete ones anyway.
Ace of Flames wrote:Warhammer fans, asshole.

Meh, with Warhammer you get more figurines, with more elaborate designs, for less money. I personally would never buy one, but people who do, get something to paint and use in games. The PSG figurines cost more, look far worse(subjective), and their only use is to gather dust on the shelf.
