Have any figurines you think any of the other members could be interested in? Or an online store you'd like to recommend to others? Or if you have bad experiences with some stores, share that here as well. Buying figurines should be as problem free as possible. Or if you have problems finding a figurine you have looked all over for, might as well just ask the other members for help!

I, for one, have good experience with Hobby Search. They always send out the products in good time, and their prices aren't too bad either. Their shipping is also really fast, and i have yet to encounter any problems with them. Here's some links, to start things up.

No problem, that's what this thread is here for. Helping each other out. Just ask if it's anything!

I don't, sadly. I kinda want the newly announced Saber Nero Nendoroid, but I'll see what my funds allow me.

Oh question here! I will be living in a pretty populated area in Toronto there are some store that sell fakes and some genuine. Is it better (by better I mean price-wise) to preorder figures from overseas or try my luck at some hobby shops?

Ah, i see. Good luck on that then. It'll probably cost you, but it's worth it in the long run ^^

Well, there's some tricks to see which figurines are Bootleg (or fake), and which ones are real. Here's a good guide on how to do it, I've read it all, and it's helped me several times. I suggest giving it a read. Otherwise, i suggest you to just buy from overseas, that's what i do most of the time. And if you use any of the two sites in the first post, i can guarantee you will be pleased. I've bought almost every single of my figurines from those sites, and I'm not disappointed yet.

Yeah I bought my nendoroid through ebay I think and it was pretty risky. I read the "Real vs Fake blog posts" and had "real" pictures from the seller (He was also shipping from japan) so I made sure it was genuine. But this time i don't think i'm gonna take anymore risks.
