    Sorry for the potentially stupid question^^:
    Is it only possible to use a picture in a comment if I uploaded it on my profile before?
    If not, how can I add it to the comment?^^

    You can add any picture (from MFC or another hosting service) to your comments using this syntax
    [img]your picture url[/img]
    However, be aware that some image hosting sites (notably imgur) have blacklisted MFC and prevent picture embedding here.

    Are these pillow covers (and other memorabilia) eligible for the database?

    www.collection-...

    It seems they were won via some sort of lottery in very limited quantities rather than sold.

    Yes, they are! If/when you add them you can list them as Prize in the Release section. With lottery items the price will be the cost of a ticket (700 yen - taxes in this case).

    Hi there and thank you already for taking the time to answer this :^)
    So while putting in some media, I saw that the Dragon Ball mangas already added in the database are only entered as one of either the versions below:

    Front: ibb.co/PhSjz5y
    Back: ibb.co/VTJq55V

    Examples of entries:
    ITEM #88978 uses the right version
    ITEM #154015 uses the left version

    Both of these books have the same ISBN. The main differences I can see is of course the cover, the price and the re-release date printed on the inside.

    So should the other version of each number be added as a variant of the already entered version (like in the cases of the special colour versions of figures) or leave it as it is with only one entry?

    This is more of a dumb question but something I've been curious about.
    As I understand, japanese law forbids pornographic contents with exposed genitals, that's why adult anime and manga have to be censored. So considering that, how are R18 figures with fully detailed genitals allowed to exist?

    If they have the same isbn you can't create a new entry for the different cover version.
    This is probably a rework which was done at some point similar to Bleach, where they changed the cover design later and reprints of earlier numbers where overhauled to match the newer cover.

    Does anyone know if GSC would replace a broken piece of a figure I bought from Amiami if it wasn't a preorder? It's not preowned, on Amiami it's listed as "Released".

    If it was released recently and you still have your AmiAmi order info, you can send GSC a message and they'll probably send you a replacement. If it's an older figure they might not have it in stock anymore. Either way it doesn't hurt to message them and see how they respond. I hope things work out for you!

    Hey guys I was wondering how does Nippon Yasan have preorders still open when the preorders by the actual manufacturers have closed? It makes me really question if they have enough stock to supply the preorders they get.

    I'm sort of getting worried because I prepaid for a figure off their website and it got delayed by 4 months which is outside of my paypal buyer's protection.
    Also I see a lot of negative reviews about the site.

    So is Nippon Yasan safe with preorders?

    Their bad reputation mostly comes from their customer support which is often unhelpful (and unpleasant).
    That said, I've made dozens of preorders at NY in the past years and they've always delivered. Also, their customer service is sometimes actually helpful for a few things (like when asking for an exclusive item that they weren't listing for example).

    As for items still being available on preorders after the manufacturer closed their ordering windows that's likely because some other customer canceled their order but NY cannot cancel it from the supplier/manufacturer so they just put it up for preorder again in hopes that someone takes it off their hands.

    Hi!

    Could someone please tell me about what happens to entries of doujin goods where the link isn't valid anymore? For instance, I noticed ITEM #659973 and ITEM #701617 were deleted from booth at some point. I didn't make a backup, btw.


    Best regards!
    Are you tired of looking for specific accessories for your Nendoroids the old way? Do you have parts you need identified but have no idea where to start?
    Then my database should be of help to you! It currently sports over 5100 items added with a picture and a lot more are to come. Please note that this is NOT a sales site.
    I hope you find what you are looking for! :3

    Hello. I need some help. I’m looking to buy two separate display cases I could use to display two bunny figures in.
    I’m looking at this one atm:www.acrylicdisp...
    I’m open to suggestions as well.
    The internal size of the box is approximately 200mm wide x 200mm deep x 350mm high.

    Do you think it would fit figures like ITEM #914129 and ITEM #676124 or ITEM #849654 with ITEM #849655?

    I’m wondering if the display would end up being too small. I know that they would be high enough, but I’m unsure about the other measurements.
