I'm thinking of buying my first figurine , but I want to avoid all the counterfeits or Chinese-made rip offs of them . I heard great things from AmiAmi, but the figurine I want is sold out. I found one on 1999 HobbySearch.com and was wondering if this was a reliable site or if there are others out there. I live in the US on the east coast if that helps narrow it down. Thanks

Check out buyfag.moe for more information on buying figures. It usually has the best guide on buying all sorts of merchandise.

You should have looked a bit further down in this forum section, head here;
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-893459/what-are-good-authentic-japan-import-online-shopping-sites-for-anime-goods-and-merchandise

And yes, Hobby Search is legit. I actually use it as my main place to buy figures, though occasionally also from Amiami and cdjapan.

HobbySearch is a good site
Crunchyroll’s store has a good selection
Rightstuf for cheap deals

Sites to avoid:
Playasia. Got a cd for an anime i was watching at the time and my friend told me it was a counterfeit.

solarisjapan is pretty good, although a tad expensive if you live outside of the U.S
