Unlicensed Figures and sites to buy themUnlicensed Figures and sites to buy them

Hello MFC. ^^

As a huge One Piece lover i am sadly kinda done with Mega House who just fuck up every new figure wither with the price, the boobs or the face. Tsume disapointed me with their Ace, so i checked for other figures and descended into hell.

I have checked quite a bit but i can't find a lot of shops so i thought maybe here are some collectors of unlicensed figures aswell?

I've orderd Mobius Ace:
https://otakushop.vn/image/cache/catalog/figure/portgas-d-ace-and-striker-by-mobius-4-800x800.jpeg

And bought a nice display for the big figures. It was quite a a good deal, considering it's normally around 400€. It has around 42 cm depth and has 3 glass shelves. Though i only added one. Depending on the height of the figures i can probably fit 6 of the big ones into it.

But i fail to find a lot of sites who ship internationally for the figures.

I've found:
toyasha
remaginetoys
shingekishop

Payment in installments like tsume has would be nice aswell, giving this figures cost like 300-400 $ + 100 $ atleast in shipping.

There's also some of the figures on ebay. It's mostly cheaper then those sites for some reason? Should i still be aware of bootlegs? I mean i don't think i have seen a bootleg of such a big figure yet?

I am thinking of preordering this one, cause i reaaaaally like that alternate end:

Also this one if it gets made:

And where to find already released ones? Are their places besides ebay and local fleamarkets to find them? Like this ones:

Joker Studio Corazon
https://otakushop.vn/image/cache/catalog/2017/11/jr-studio-corazon-resin-statue-1-800x800.jpg

I don't have the money to buy them all at once, so i am worrying i can't get a hold of them when i have the money for them? :<

Also are their any display cases you would recommend? Mine is enough for the ones i wish NOW but who knows what the future brings?

Thanks!
As I know, if you buy it as pre-order it's about 3 month-1 year. If you buy it from in stock they can ship in different time, from 1 week to over 1 month =\

NemsEngelAceSasu (1 year ago) #30961602Sure.
Well it's my first time ordering a unlicensed figure. How much time do such shops/figures need normally to ship?

NemsEngelAceSasu (1 year ago) #30961614And it was instock when you orderd? T_T
Oh no, sorry to worry you! I should have read the rest of your comments.

This was for a pre-orders. I'm sure in stock items don't take too long to ship. But I would look up reviews for each particular shop and see if people say in stock items have a long lead time.

Ose_93 (1 year ago) #30961613I'm sure every company is different, but to give an example, when I ordered picture/1835236... I placed the order December 8, 2016 and received the item around July 7, 2017.
And that one didn't take too long. I had ordered a different figure on March 16, 2016 and got it in April 2017.

Kanda_Im_mortal (1 year ago) #30961296Well, they are official registered store, use Paypal, have feedbacks at FB and regulary update it. So I don't think about scammers, but...
Yep, please, keep me informed! I don't like this situation at all =\

Kanda_Im_mortal (1 year ago) #30961242Yep, seems legit.
Did you pay by PayPal? If yes, and they will not ship it in near time, you can ask about refund.
Now I'm worry too because of my order there... But all my payments were fine, so don't know what to say...

NemsEngelAceSasu (1 year ago) #30961222I've this on watching rover.ebay.com/... I'm kinda certain it's legit.
Well toyasha answered me on Facebook several times saying they're having a problem getting the money to the company. But that's not changing the fact that it's still not shipped. Besides if a shop says "this never happened before" my alarm bells ring, because that's a often used phrase from scammers.

0crybaby0 (1 year ago) #30961007Try avoiding shingekishop at all costs >.>
They have the worst customer service ever, ignore emails/posts on their facebook site, take more preorders than they have in stock and take forever to ship stuff out.
They also charged me the shiping cost twice for some reason without giving a real explanation either lol. Had to contact Paypal since they wouldn't answer me.
These 3 are the best shops in my opinion and from personal experience.

Thank you. Then I'll try to better avoid shingeki shop. The new shops sound good.^^

Kanda_Im_mortal (1 year ago) #30961190Yep, ebay is ok for pre-orders, but when it's released, NO, be aware of bootlegs. Read the description carefully - seller can mark it like "re-cast, reproduction, no number plate, no original box" or smth like that. Like this for example www.ebay.com/it...
It's strange. They always answer me in 1 day. You can e-mail them

So ebay is quite fine, no bootlegs? Atleast i didn't find some.
It's good that the shops are reliable, though i am a bit nervous. I bought Mobius Ace from Toyasha on 19th and they still haven't shipped. >.<
