Figures, nendoroids etc! Info/Help needed ^^
I was curious to how people got their figures, nendoroids etc? I really want to get some but I'm strugging on how I'm gonna get ones cheap enough :/
Do people go to cons to get theirs? If you do, how much do they usually cost?
Or do you get yours from online, if you do were online do you get yours and how much is it all together including P+P (:
Please share

I get mine from amiami.jp. It's not cheap, but I prefer to shop there then risk getting a bootleg. I also tend to purchase figures that people don't want anymore and are selling off.

You could try ebay, if you want cheap, but check feedback. There seems to be plenty of people trying to sell copied nendoroids and things like that on there. I've purchased a number of figma from ebay though.

Yeah thats what I'm scared of on ebay, I don't want cheap looking ones but I don't exactly have any money to spare.. I was gonna get myn of amiami but the shipping is crazy! I think it is anyway, isn't it like the same price as what your actually getting?
Thanks for your time (:

All of my figures have either come from Ebay or conventions.

If your going to buy on Ebay you need to take a really good look at the seller's feedback and photos. You can always request them to send you more pictures if your not happy with the ones they have put up I got my Sebastian Nendoroid from there and it was the cheapest price I found! Some people on their are fans selling second hand figures they don't want anymore also. Most of these are in pretty much perfect condition and some haven't even been taken out of the box

As for conventions, I have found that if you wait until near the end of the last day dealers are much more willing to bargin with you about the price of items and/or give you a discount if you buy more than one item. However, not always XD

Hope I have been some help

I've got quite a few Nendoraoids, half are from MCM Expo, and they ranged between £20-£30 and I'm pretty sure *most* of them are real (I'm not convinced my Ciel one I got this May is real as the images on the box are terrible but the figure is great)

I also have 3 that I've gotten online off ebay, generally on ebay they are around £30-£40 however I got mine for £13 each I think with free p&p but again I'm not 100% sure they are real.

If you want to make sure they are real get it from somewhere like TokyoToys(http://tokyotoys.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=nendoroid), however they are a bit more expensive (I've just seen one I want for £50 OTL)

I've just had a look and otakuhouse.com also has some, and they seem a better price however there will be P&P costs.

I hope this is helpful ^^'

I would say the most you should ever be paying for a Nendoroid is £35-£40, amiami as forementioned is a great site, other sites you could try are HLJ.com, they do good early bird prices for most of thier stuff, another alright site is Hobbysearch, but ive had bad experiances with them charging import taxes...however if it's discontinued nendoroids that you are after then conventions or ebay are the way to go, as people have already said just be sure to check the item and sellers feedback thouroughly in order to make sure the item you are buying is not bootlegged as there are a lot of fake Good Smile Company goods out there ^^

With nendoroids, the bootlegs use a slightly shiny plastic whereas the real ones are matt.

At least that's what I noticed the last time I bought some. But they were Death Note ones so it was a long time ago.

This is very true; http://www.toypusher.com/figures/spotting-fake-nendoroids-figures/

fakes will always be more "shiny" than authentic items, they will also have some defects in the colouring, but the biggest giveaway is the box.
