Does anyone here use Yahoo Auctions to get the goods? I started briefly checking them out and was surprised to see certain figures at strangely low prices.

So I have two questions. First off, how do you go about buying from them, is it possible to just punch in a western address and have the seller ship it off? Or is it necessary to use a third party service.
Second, how much of an issue are counterfeit figures both in general and on the site? Are there any decent tips on identifying them?

The great majority of Japanese sellers will not ship outside of Japan. You have to use a deputy service, which goes a long way in negating those low prices. I don't think you have to worry much about bootlegs, though I usually only go there for vintage stuff.

So do I buy this shit or what

A guy bought one, it was alright. Like the original, it needs paint as it is a resin kit. Unlike the originals, it comes with joints instead of you needing to buy them separately.

I am in the philippines for a while living with my fiance. I started collecting some diecast airliners because I love aviation. Recently two of my airliners developed a "condition." This condition seems to have melted the paint on two of the airliners. Not the base color, like white or blue, but the features like windows, airline name, doors, small livery features, etc. I am able to pick these planes up and smear off the paint with my thumb. As far as I can figure there are three possible causes to this:

1) handling them caused the paint to melt, either due...

I haven't settled with just one. I've got a Jotaro/SP and Kinnikuman Soldier elsewhere. Just trying to keep the rather limited display space as varied as possible.

Are chinese bootlegs really made with unhealthy materials that cause cancer or is that just a meme to keep people from buying from China?

No plastic or paint fumes are good for you, regardless of where it is coming from.
>>
Authentic products are produced with volatile components as well. Third world country production of things isn't just a cost consideration, it's utilized because of lax safety standards abroad. Lead in paints to help strengthen it in the polymerization stage, plasticizers to help increase elasticity, etc. You can grab lead test strips from amazon and it's almost a guarantee that any authentic figures you buy would be flagged.

It's just ratio of key ingredients that differentiates real items and bootlegs at a certain point, but even then the difference is negligible.
>>
>>5642826
I remember my mother always saying when a toy reeks of plastic smells that it causes cancer.
It feels very exaggerated, by that logic every actionfigure I ever had would be affected, basically everything Mattel and Hasbro.

She also put the worst figures outside so they lose their smell but I doubt that this changes much if it is in the plastic itself.

No, seriously tho, let's do a topic about stuff that Funko's ReAction figures should do, if they were willing to get more adventurous.

As you can tell from my pic, I am immensely annoyed that; even tho they hold the Steven Universe license, they haven't even done any actual action figures with them. Especially for ReAction, but not in the usual pseudo-Kenner way.

I'm thinking more of a pastige of Rock Lords (Which was underrated dammit) IE, with the gem-characters able to transform into their gems and more articulated than normal. It'd...

Also, considering that Jason Eisner specifically said in interviews that they were based on the design aesthetics of 80s toys/80s toy villains, there really needs to be a ReAction for The Plague from Hobo With A Shotgun.

Hell, my idea for it would be as the kickoff to a larger-sized late-80s/early-90s-Playmates-house-style-styled (Think Ninja Turtles, Toxic Crusaders, Earthworm Jim, Dick Tracey, ect) size range for sleazier, more urban films.

My ideal films for that range'd include pretty much anything by David Cronenberg and Frank Heinlotter, Tokyo Gore Police,...

Yeah, but they did actually also just license those unproduced figures for The Dark Crystal. Like, this isn't even a rumor, their original designer Tim Clarke (Who also did Sectaurs and Boglins BTW) actually not only confirmed this, but he's even shown off an all-new Augra sculpt he did for the line.

OF course, hopefully this means that there's hope for other unproduced 80s toylines, like The Last Starfighter in pic related.

But, yeah, speaking as OP, there is kind of an "off"...

Hi /toy/!

I'll be in Hong Kong for 3 days next week.
I knew some places in Mong Kok like CTMA or In's point.
Mainly I collect tamashii nation products, but I love me some bootleg toys.

So, any recommendations (or guide) where to go for toy hunting?
Any advices are greatly appreciated!

>>5642515
If you walk further down the road where Mong Kok's Sino Center is, you should see a large mall in Yau Ma Tei that specializes in lots of toys from ancient robos to new figures. You should be there when you see a lone elevator on the side, or just keep walking until you see a large set of stairs and escalators. I recommend checking it out.
>>
Also if you go above the main shopping part in Sino Center there's more stores by elevator. There was a record store and a floor or two above a store that specialized in robots, some oldies on consignment there too.

Check almost every building in Mong Kok. One time I was meeting up with a girl and saw a Death Note guy on a poster. Went in the building which I had never been in before. They had a lot of specialty stores like an all Star Wars and an all Keroro and all Gundam etc.
