Masterlist-Online Stores

I was looking for one of these for weeks until I realized I would have to make one myself. Have a personal reference masterlist of all the legit stores I'm aware of. Feel free to add on middlemen etc in the comments, this is an open resource. Need to find a figure? Well, just go through all the list and you'll find it somewhere~

THIS LIST IS PRIMARILY FOR CONVENIENCE WHEN SEARCHING FOR COMPARISONS AND PRICE, NOT REVIEWS.

Frequently updated.

Protip: Use ctrl+F to find specific requirements

================================

WONFEST GSC 2012: www.whl4u.jp/bu...

Amiami www.amiami.com/
Common site of choice, overseas, discount, secretly/limitedly accept cancellations

Mandarake ekizo.mandarake... (Japanese better?)

"Stalking Mandarake is a daily hobby, you have to do it everyday if you want results. Shibuya always updates at midnight JST. Nakano usually starts at around 15:00 JST and goes on until 21:00 (their shop close time, I think). Other shops also tend to use this schedule."

    Archonia is a west-europe based store with a large selection of anime goods, while shipping is real cheap and fast the actual prices are usually overpriced. They however got a good point system and all instock articles are buy-able with points. Furthermore they have a lot of western online-banking check-out possibilities making it an easy place to start collecting stuff. I owe my collecting-habit to them, and I'm very grateful ^^

    sorryiwasinYep, they have a lot of reviews and whatnot. I like to check there before I try a site for the first time.

    They have a list in this thread(club/72/discuss...), I don't know if it's up to date but the rest of their forums should help you out.


    Oh, that's perfect! Thanks a lot :D Now this is just an extra personal preference list.

    MoroI did detailed breakdowns of MANY of these stores in my own entries if anyone wants more than 1 line of information :/

    Ah no the point is that it's one line of information, just to jog the memory. It's a list for finding the sites all right in a row. But reviews are awesome as well! Do you know any other storess?

    Thanks so much for doing this if you keep this updated i could actually see this as becoming very useful! I know just the other day i was trying to figure out if something was bootleg so it's nice to know legitimate sites.
