    Try 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.

    Kanda_Im_mortal (2 years ago) #30960674Wow! Nice to see one more collector who interested in diorama's! ^_^
    So here we go.
    1) NEVER use taobao for buying! Despite the fact that most manufacturers of these statues in China, they do not sell their statues there AT ALL. Strange as it may seem, but YES, there are bootlegs (either stolen from the factory, without a number and identification papers), or re-castes with a lower quality (in particular, saw counterfeit figures from Apocalypse).
    2) Stores that you found are good, do not worry.
    3) Yes, some of the figures can be bought cheaper on Ebay than in these stores, because these stores are some kind of proxy, for example, from Malaysia or Singapoure. If the seller from Ebay lives in China, he can send the figure directly to you. By the way, these stores, as far as I know, do not write a lower price in the declaration.
    4) EXTREMELY recommend joining this 2 groups (it's private, you need to ask for access)

    There you will find more info, prices and more.
    Good luck!


    Thank you. ^^

    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. >.<

    LoveChopper (2 years ago) #30935152seems to have quite a few negative reviews
    www.sitejabber....

    Personally never had a problem, and I've ordered about $200 worth of stuff through them over the years (most recent order was a month ago). They even send photos (without me having to ask for them), to confirm they received the right item.

    Never had a problem with refunds or deposit release either. Was always done within a day.
