Figure Site and Shop ForumFigure Site and Shop ForumThis club is for discussion and shop & site related questions.

Hi I started this club so that people could discuss the shops and sites they use to buy figures. Please add a new discussion for the shop/site you want to talk about since it will make it easier for other people to find information on this shop/site in the future.

Please leave appropriate feedback for stores here:

MFC Shops Feedback & Rating Pages
This club is dedicated to web based anime/figure ...ect shops for physical ("brick and mortar") stores please visit Local Shopping Guides

Update: We are updating/editing all first posts on threads to provide more uniform/detailed information on each entry featured and removing the poll section as feedback can now be left for each shop in our MFC shop section. (mfc link)

TheAzure (14 days ago) #17315599Kirin hobby is horrible lol
They take forever and from other peoples' experiences that I've seen, have very poor communication. The orders I made were shipped to me about 2-4 months after the actual release date, though this is common for a US based shop. I never attempted to contact them about a time frame(as others did and claimed they received no replies) but when I first made my order I forgot to change my old address and they replied and fixed it right away for me so communication wasn't a problem there. All my orders made it to me safely in the end but I don't think I'd order from them again unless it was a good deal + free shipping.

Skellington (18 days ago) #17223538I normally only buy brand new figures but since seeing the amiami pre-owned section. I am considering buying some figures. But I'm a bit concerned as I don't want to buy damaged or yellowed figures. So what are your experiences with it? What grades do you recommend for the figure and the box?
Thank you for answering :)

I think damaged or yellowed figures have C grade or worse. A or B grade is fine (B grade can mean some minor wear). In case of a C grade, they also describe what is wrong with the figure. (Sometimes a part is missing but the rest of the figure is fine for example.) Personally I don't care much for boxes but A or B boxes are both fine. AmiAmi also explains their grades in the description of each pre-owned figure. Hope this helps!

does anyone know any proxies that buy for you off Apps like otamart or mercari and charge a percentage of your total costs instead of a per seller fee?
It's ok if you don't know if they buy off of otamart or not, I can ask them myself =]

Is it just me or is nothing from Abbysecorp-direct [ext link ] orderable? All their figs just say 'Notify me when available'. Also are their prices tax included?

Orangepls (1 month ago) #16704320... and they responded saying that the estimate was based on the what their providers said. I'm not sure what I should do; should I just wait it out?

That's what every shop says. My ones in Germany too. I always wait way longer then most others. You have to bare with it or buy her somewhere else. Patience is the life of a figure hunter ^^.

Hello, I have a question about BigBadToyStore. I'm not sure if I should have created a new forum for this; I'm kind of a newbie. So I "preorded" kotobukiya Shiro from No Game No Life on BigBadToyStore in August of 2016 ([ext link ]). Back then, the estimated arrival date was August 2016. However, every month they change the estimated date to the current month along with the current year. Obviously the arrival date is completely wrong, and I'm starting to get kind of impatient, just because I have no idea when she will actually arrive. For all I know, they could just change the date for another two years. I already wrote them an email, and they responded saying that the estimate was based on the what their providers said. I'm not sure what I should do; should I just wait it out?

Bearcat (1 month ago) #16403715Consolidation is definitely not free, it costs 100yen for any additional box (like if you have Box A and you want to add Box B and Box C to ship together with A, you'll pay 200yen extra)
If you create an account you can do a full calculation of all fees here: [ext link ]
Other than that I can only recommend JPN Depot, they've been lovely to work with and have answered questions very quickly. Lemme know if you have any questions.


Thank you! I finally heard back from them and they said it is 100yen per package and not per item, which their site led me to believe >.> They seem good so far. I've got two separate packages with them now that I am combining, one with an xmas present for my mom so I hope they get this packed and shipped out soon!

Sekhmet (1 month ago) #16265194So.........JPN-Depot.....they say on this page [ext link ] that their consolidation service is free but then when you click on that it says you pay 100yen per item? Am I missing something...
