    The owner of MFC is basically missing. He made the rule, it's his site.
    No amount of arguing you do here will change that. We're basically on borrowed time and just have to pray the hosting is paid for or all of MFC could poof.

    Drutol (2 months ago) #65388844The thing is that it's severly overpiced by amiami and any other Japanese reseller. In China I've preordered it for 110$ with bonus tapestry at that.
    It's pity that there's no entry for her just because it's hard to share information on her with others... and then people get tricked by amiami with their 50$ markup.


    Good find, thanks for sharing. That price is way more doable. Could you DM me the store you chose? :) I'll deffo check it out. Pre-orders close with AmiAmi end September so I was holding off cause of the price for now. 110 is doable af.

    I'll be honest, I dont really enjoy the rule that it's japanese characters or manufactures only??? Like,,,, it's just really comes off as fetishy of japanese culture in general to me, and seems kinda elitist. Like if you dare like any figures of non japanese origin or manufacturers then you're some kinda peasant is what it feels like tbh. I feel like the rule should have some lieniancy bc one of the main things I hear is "the quality isnt as good as Jnp figs and merch!!!" Like,,, I've seen some God awful figures listed here, and it's kinda gross to say that no other country could make good merch/figs, especially when you look at Mytheos!!! Their figures are so amazing??? Literally everything they release has such a unique design and base, unlike the endless cashgrabs of basic poses and clear based figures I've seen on this site ;;

    I feel like the rule is stupid and that all collectors, whether they like to collect jpn or not, should be welcomed but that's just me. I definitely wont leave the site because of the user sales ((I've had nothing but good experiences with them so far)) however I feel like the rule should be lifted because in general it's kinda strange. It has a lot of gaps, and I've seen star wars, moomin, DC/marvel comics on here because the manufacturer was japanese. It just seems redundant at this point when people can list McDonalds pokemon toys, but we cant list any high quality figures because it isnt of japanese origin or manufacturing?

    That's just my two cents on the debate going on in the comments here, it's already been established that she cant be listed because of that rule, and I think it's a stupid rule.

    CloudKingdom (2 months ago) #65388176Thanks for you reply, unfortunately I cannot see the figure you linked since the site says "I'm not allowed to buy it in my region." Lol. But I think I know which one it is, as I found another scale of her, with a katana, yes. :p It's prolly that one.
    Myethos? Is that a designer or a company? I'm curious to find out if these APEX guys can actually create a good, and decent quality controlled figure with a good paint job too. Sakura's price is high, for a 1/8.. At least I think 16k is a lot of money. So it's a problem that she's not from a well esteemed company, at least to me. :)
    it's a manufacturing company, they made hella good characters for their price and the quality isn't the best like alter quality but looking at the figures it's well made. I had some several and most of my family members who don't know figure characters mostly picked myethos characters than my alter figures. Look at my page I followed the myethos club I think it's a chinese company. But their figure is good, they also work with good smile company for certain figures like Holo and a new gilgamesh character that I ordered.

    GOD1 (2 months ago) #65388146Yae sakura is the most liked free to play character in the game. I'm playing that game up to now and I spent thousands just to stay on top. She is an OP character at the beginning of the game but slowly she was getting replaced by other better characters. But if you ask me and other old players we still like yae sakura as a character. Myethos also made different honkai impact 3rd characters like Seele Vollerei and Raiden Mei eternally pure ver which I previously owned. Those characters don't have their own page as well except if you go to the myethos club. There are some Hi3 characters in here but the nendoroid version. I also saw another yae sakura character the fire version with a katana but made by the developer of the game MIHOYO and I just don't know if they have their own page here.
    here's the fire Yae/flame sakitama yae sakura: otakumode.com/s...
    Edit: I saw 3 nendoroid, the name here is houkai not honkai.
    Here:
    ITEM #601474, ITEM #775344, ITEM #790187

    ddarko (2 months ago) #65388112It’s good to have any site to get some info on items and MFC serves that purpose.

    Agreed. ^^

    CloudKingdom (2 months ago) #65388110Let's just not.bambipie (2 months ago) #65388109I don't want to comment on this as it has been an ongoing fight/discussion for years.

    Why would you fight over it though lol? I was just pointing those things because I think it’s genuinely funny. I could care less if they decide tomorrow to only allow Alter figures on this site, for an example. At the end of the day, it’s just a website run by, I presume, collectors like you and me. It’s good to have any site to get some info on items and MFC serves that purpose.

    CloudKingdom (2 months ago) #65388106I've heard mods describe this place as a database for Japanese otaku culture, so I think the rest of the items are totally fine to have on here as well. They can't keep expanding it. The rule is fine for that. MyFigureCollection is just what it started out as, and it's still sorta the main thing I'd say.
    Over all I think it's alright.
    And I don't think anyone would go that far as to slap someone. :p


    Of course haha, I am obviously exaggerating with the smacking. Again, not saying it’s wrong or anything. It’s just a contradiction of sorts with the site name (which no matter which side you fall on the figure debate, is true), and it’s funny because most of us here are non-Japanese. If something is on AmiAmi, I presume it means the Japanese otaku is OK with it and wants it. But, you then find that the non-Japanese “Japanese Otaku” appreciator has a standard where such thing is considered outside of the Japanese otaku culture.

    So no matter which camp you fall under on whether or not MFC should allow at least these figures that are on sale in Japanese otaku sites like AmiAmi, I think it should be still possible to crack a laugh given the contradiction and funny thinking. Of course, just because it’s a contradiction and funny, does not mean one need to change the site though. It’s just a website after all.
