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)

Also avoid EMS shipping ... SAL or registered-SAL are less likely to be held by customs in some countries.

UncleJoey (16 days ago) #9736132You could buy from a store that downvalues packages, like BiJ.

For some reason I have been unable to access j-figure. Is anyone else having trouble getting onto the site? It asks for a username and password.

Quick question for people familiar with using TOM and Crunchyroll, who would be the better choice for my item #91365 pre-order?

cutesushipie (2 months ago) #7452747I don't think SAL is free..? Though don't quote me on that. I doubt you'll get custom fees, I have never received custom fees and have ordered over $150USD once. And EMS doesn't tend to charge as much customs as FedEx, hence being more costly than FedEx, so I think you'll probably be okay.
But this was in Canada so I'm not sure how it is in your country.
The nendoroid may be labeled pre order because they needed to order more, or the system hasn't updated yet.
Good luck!


Naah it's not it's just cause it's my first order so I get free shipping :)
Customs sucks cause I live in Europe haha
Anyway thanks for your answer! ~

About Tokyo Otaku Mode can anyone tell me how they value their package? According to someone it's full price without discounts + shipping? Is it always like that?
I'm also surprised that shipping is included in the declared value...
Since it's my first order at TOM, I should get 10$ and free shipping which would mean I won't get customs taxes. If it's like the value above, I'd rather get SAL so that it will have less chances to get hit by custom...
Or would the package be fine even with EMS? since it's only a nendoroid? light and max value at 46$ (get taxes from 24$ onwards)
Also wonder if it's normal that the product is labelled as a preorder when the figure is already released??
Thanks!
