Re: Official BxH Bounty Hunter --> Collectors Thread

Keep an eye on Mandarake in Japan. They often have those. Their English site is very navigable and their shipping rates are really reasonable. Best of luck!

Re: Some questions about protecting my vinyls

Two things. 1. I've never heard of anything applied directly to the toy. Seems to me any kind of spray or coating would cause effects that the collectors wouldn't want. 2. What happened to the first post in this thread? I'm now the first poster but I was replying to someone else asking the initial q...

Re: Itokin news

Yeah, sorry I'm late back to the boards. Got back about a week ago so I probably should have posted earlier. Anyway, it was awesome to be back in the old stomping grounds and to see old friends. I got together with Kazu and Andy (Creaturion) from Kaiju Korner for lunch and a wander around Nakano Bro...

Re: What happened to the forum??

As a member who still checks in almost daily I do miss the buzz. Conversation just doesn't happen in an Instagram post. I follow a lot of toy makers, customizers and collectors on there and I love seeing all the pics but there is very little conversation. Lots of "Looks awesome!" and "Man, I wish I ...

Re: marvel X kidrobot viniyl mini series

I like to see street versions. KAno did some amazing urban versions of both DC and Marvel characters a little while ago. Something along those lines or perhaps something to go with the Marvel hip-hop cover variants. https://static1.squarespace.com/static/54cc212ae4b00a18aab924a3/55205c03e4b01b8a469a...

Great jeebus! A giga-lamé gold Astronaut just went up and was sold on Mandarake within 24 hours for ¥45,000 ($417US)!! I know these little guys are popular but that is nuts.

Re: The Usugrow Thread

Good to see some of the old faces still around man! ¥6000 and probably about ¥1400-2000 for shipping. Mandarake is really fair with their shipping costs. So that would be between $50-60US for the figure and say $12-18 for shipping. However it does say this does not come with packaging and it does ha...

Re: Some questions about protecting my vinyls

I wouldn't apply anything to the toys themselves. However you may be able to find a clear UV cutting coating you can put on case. I know that places like Mandarake in Tokyo have UV coatings on their shop windows to protect their displays. Amazon or EBay may have something like that for you.

Re: Custom Pop Funko

One of the troubles I've heard is that the plastic quality isn't very good so they are a bit rougher to use as a base. That being said I know there are a few folks out there doing them. I'm pretty sure Avatar 666 (also goes by avatar_chakal) does some. He did a really awesome San from Princess Monon...

Re: The Instinctoy Thread

That made me chuckle a little. Back when I was living in Tokyo a toy shop owner from the states came over and we got to know each other a bit as we met up at different toy events and I helped him out a bit with translation. This would have been back around 2008 or very early 2009 I guess. Anyway, he...

Hey there. I have one of the 2 foot tall reusable Munnys that came with the erasable markers that I use in my classroom. Unfortunately the thing has been used and cleaned enough that some of the marks are no longer erasing. I've tried all the standby whiteboard tricks such as dry-erase cleaner, usin...

Looks like the same person got the mecha suit and the light blue astronaut. That combo went for over $500! Same person also bid $150 each on the other two. Deep pockets.

Hmm... not sure yet. Is there any particular reason the decision was made to change the forum look? Change in software or something like that? I must admit I'm finding it a bit tougher to read but that may just be because I'm not really used to it.

Absolutely. Nothing much happening in this end of the world toy wise but I'm guessing from the thread that you're getting out of the game. Would be happy to talk about you coming to Lotus Land. Fire me a PM and I'll get you my contact info.
