#420: “Venus is an eBay”

*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
*** Topic is '-= UGH =-'
[09:56] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> So I'm surfing the Japanese portion of the internet when I see this, and I think "Damn, that Sailor V figure is neat, I want one!"
[09:57] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- snickers

[09:57] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Yes, yes, you know where this is going, don't you?
[09:57] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> i dint WTF
[09:57] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> So I decide to do an eBay search for "Sailor V"... and I happen to find it. Then, I realize to my horror, that the figure is three inches tall. That's microscopic!
[09:59] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- snorts

[09:59] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> What is it that guys always say, "size doesn't matter?"
[09:59] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> ROR
[10:00] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Bleh, I thought it was a snap together model that would at least be about 12 inches tall
[10:00] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Quit smoking whatever crack you're on, man
[10:01] <Cést_la_V> Oh I've seen lots of junk on ebay too!! For example this person is selling printed address labels of me and Artemis!!
[10:02] <FireFly_9> Well if it isn't "Little Miss Inkjet".
[10:02] <Mdm_Maestro> Feh, it isn't even an original design
[10:02] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Geez, with my mad skills I could make a killing doing junk like that.
[10:03] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> No you wouldn't, it's the way the universe works, only idiots can get away with pawning off bad manga scans for cash money. If you approached it seriously the Toei would come after YOU
[10:04] <Cést_la_V> Oh I'll show you something else!! Someone advertised a "SAILOR MOON FIGURES SAILOR Venus (Sexy)" for sale on eBay
[10:05] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- raises an eyebrow

[10:05] <Mdm_Maestro> Haruka!!
[10:05] <FireFly_9> Well there are some rather risque resin models...
[10:05] <Cést_la_V> no. You don't understand. It's a standard toy figure
[10:06] <FireFly_9> So why would they call it "sexy?"
[10:06] <=^catablanca^=> Because they're a big Sailor Venus fan?
[10:06] <Cést_la_V> No. Look at the picture they are using to sell it.
[10:07] <=^catablanca^=> =^o.O^=
[10:07] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- busts out laughing

[10:08] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> yeah but... (rolls over laughing) yeah but... they're using a pantyshot to justify a 58 dollar price tag! LOL
[10:09] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Geez, I could turn my 12 dollar plastic Bandai R series figure upside down and do the same thing... :P
[10:09] * Cést_la_V smacks Xadium

[10:10] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> I NEVER SAID I WOULD!!
[10:10] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> See that figure is 12 inches tall, and its face looks like a blob of plastic, I'm trying to get a more detailed, taller figure. The "Beauty Selection" snap together figures looked good, not that I've seen any around.
[10:10] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I think those were smaller tho
[10:12] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Here's a cute Resin for $13 bucks so far
[10:12] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Thanks but she's an amputee, apparently... I might bid for it but it'll go up insanely so what the hell's the point
[10:13] <Cést_la_V> (O_o)
[10:13] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Sorry V-chan
[10:13] <Cést_la_V> No that's not it, have you READ this page??

Japanese Animation / "Sailor Moon", Posed so hot to waiting for you. Present in 1:6 scale White Resin Hand-made Statue Action Figure.

[10:14] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I think the pose is striking, but it's not "hot"...
[10:15] <FireFly_9> Maybe it is in a "Michael Jackson innocent looks spawn peodphilic tendencies" fashion...

So Erotic!
So Sex-y!

[10:17] <Mdm_Maestro> Have you *seen* the average anime fanboy?

Nude / Nudity style pose to turn you on!

[10:18] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> OK WTF she is NOT nude unless this is some weird Japanese fetish I have not yet caught wind of
[10:19] <Mdm_Maestro> And you've caught wind of them all if the H doujinshi are to be believed...
[10:19] <FireFly_9> Well they do "plead the alternative"--that's the correct legal term, isn't it, Xadium-- with that "/nudity style pose"
[10:20] * [ Dr_Xadium ] pats Hotaru-chan on the head and hands her a cookie

[10:20] <FireFly_9> Gah, could you be any MORE condescending?
[10:21] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> WTF iz a nodity stile poz?!
[10:21] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> no
[10:21] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> It's where you go around being all sultry and your every move implies suggestively that "underneath all these clothes I'm *totally naked*".
[10:22] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> It's 15" high, that's not bad, you should get it... it's a good price.
[10:23] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> A- it will go up, especially now that the link is exposed to fandom by *US*, B - she's hasn't got a leg to stand on and C - there's a minimum 16 dollar shipping charge.
[10:24] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> heh bull[BLEEP] it costs $16 to ship that, 7 or 8 maybe.
[10:25] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> -sigh- if it wasn't a blasted auction, thus inevitably putting it out of my reach, I probably would get it anyway.
[10:28] <Cést_la_V> So which figure do you have now?
[10:29] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> French Knockoff of the one on this page here, I want to trade up.
[10:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Not on your budget LOL
[10:30] <FireFly_9> It's been my experience that people on a budget should avoid eBay at all cost
[10:30] <[ Dr_Xadium ]> Well I only really went there to see what that figure was like.
[10:31] <Cést_la_V> Instead you found a den of Scum and Villany I will have to punish!!
[10:32] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL Sailor Venus, the eBay cop stopping pansu shots of toy figurines and inket printing copyright infringers
[10:32] <Cést_la_V> Maybe I should do a search for "Sailor Uranus"??
[10:34] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Oh look, I've got address labels too. Where the F[BLEEP]K is my cut.. and how come I don't have "sexy figures" like Minako-chan?
[10:35] <FireFly_9> To put it delicately... you're a transvestite.
[10:35] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> GAH, when you say it like that it makes me feel foul! And I'm NOT! I just like wearing macho guy's clothes!!
[10:36] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.>>ROR evn da uderwear hshshshshs
[10:36] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> STFU runt
