Hi everyone. I really need your help!!

I am looking for the Captain Vanilla (キャプテン バニラ) figure or garage kit by Volks (ボークス).

post-24270-0-02291100-1318591372_thumb.j

If anyone knows where I could get one please let me know. I found it last year but money was too tight at the time (even though it was quite inexpensive)and then I sort of forgot about getting it but now that I want to try and get it again I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I hope someone can help me

Thanks a million,

Dizzy

I think the all replied back and none of them has it nor can any of them help me :( Guess I could always try to contact Volks.

Boy am I kicking myself in the ass for not getting it when I could.

Still looking for it if anyone has it or knows where I can get it please let me know!!

Thank you DV I appreciate it and those sites were a good try, even though they could not get the figure they were all nice and replied. I also tried to contact Volks USA directly. I'm waiting to hear back from them.

She is from the hentai game GALZOO by Alice Soft the figure was released by Volks

Sadly I think I missed my opportunity to get her, I don't think anyone has her anymore. I keep hopeing I will luck out and someone will come across her at some random shop and let me know so I can snatch her up. I would even be willing to purchased an assembled/used/opened kit or model.

I really appreciate you going out of your way to look for her like this. Thank you!!

Oh she's from a hentai game.....that would be hard.... but ill to use the name Galzoo by alice soft this monday to ask if they know it. but i think we only have a little chance for looking for this since its not really a anime figure.

if all else fails, contact masamichi at crescent shop http://www.crescent-shop.com/index.htm, give him all the details and im sure he can get it for you, if its not avail in stores they also check used stores, auctions etc. it may take a while for some of the rarer figures but ive always had 100% success with them finding stuff for me (like my copies of monthly shonen sunday zokan from October 1978 through May 1979 which had adachi's first original series nine, as well as finding original vhs tapes for the tv adaptation) depending on how hard to find the item is, it can take a while, iirc the longest ive waited is 6 months for him to find a frist print copy of volume 3 of urusei yatsura and the first edition lum figure with the tiger bikini :)

while definitely not the cheapest way to go its the absolute best source for any hard to find item outside japan (they will also buy for you and ship worldwide for items not available outside japan such as games, manga's, video's etc)

Thanks ero-jiji it's starting to look like that might be my last hope at getting this one!! So far I can't find any trace of her anywhere, I'll have to check a few local places first but she is so rare that I am sure I will probably have to go through them... hope I can afford his rates!

he is very affordable, and ive yet to have something come damaged (hell even when he sends me volumes of manga, they are wraped in bubble wrap, boxed, wrapped again, and put in another box lol) they will even do proxy bidding for you if you find something on a japanese auction site that doesnt allow out of country bids. be warned though that during this season he is usually swamped, so non direct buy stuff will usually be on the back burner till mid jan (same goes for about a week before/after summer/winter comiket due to the massive amount of requests they get)

there charge is in yen, not dollars so the charge fluctuates based on the conversion rate, ive had charges from 5usd+shipping to 150usd+shipping,( the 150 being for the adachi stuff, iirc the rate in 07 was around 125yen/1usd ) the rates around 75yen/1usd atm
