Now I won't claim that prize figures look better than high quality figures from Alter or similar, but think about it. A single HQ figure is eight (or more) times more expensive than a prize figure, but does it really look eight times that good? I don't think so.

Of course there are some prize figures which look pretty derpy, but the same can also be said of higher prized scale figures. Derpiness with a high price tag isn't rare, and then there are even high prized scale figures who make scales look better by comparison. *cough*Griffon*cough*

Anyway, if you also think you'll get much more bang for the buck with prize figures and think that they're under-appreciated, welcome to the club!

Let's appreciate prize figures together! \^д^/

Too bad this group seems to have died down, I'm a huge fan of prize figures.

Hello! Most of my figures are prizes! When I saw the group I screamed happily („• ֊ •„)

Greetings! I'm new here as well as in MFC :D And also, I'm relatively new in figure-collecting, where most of my figures are consisted of prize figures since it's affordable enough with equally good quality. It's nice to find a circle with fellow prize lovers since I've had difficult time to find one. SO I hope we all can get along :D

I’ve heard ‘pop up parade’by goodsmile are very good for their price. Are there a good choice for a beginner collector?

Risenfromashfig4 years ago#18992226I am new to anime figure collecting and got several prize figures as part of a lot of misc. figures I bought. I was impressed by their quality, but am confused about how people not in Japan can get their hands on prize figures. Do they get snatched up and imported? Do you have to get lucky and find a Japanese collector who has duplicates? How does this work? Thanks for explaining this to the newb. :)

You can look at online Japanese sites that have used figures for sale, like amiami or mandarake. They sell prize figures like the ones here, often in new (unopened) condition.

I think what happens is that there is overstock of figures and these end up being sold at a retail price - the prize figures in a crane machine need to be updated so what's left over gets sold. This is my theory.
