What are the best EU shops for buying figures ?What are the best EU shops for buying figures ?

HelsingHelsing3 meses atrásAsk MFC
Hello there ,

I would like to ask what reliable EU sites/shops do you guys use to purchase figures ? Was googling for some but dont know didnt find anything reliable.

I want to lay my hands on ITEM #549439

Of course I am looking for the best price if possible.
I would of course buy from amiami , jlist and such as I did few times before but beg my pardon I cant afford to deal with customs and pay 20% VAT of top as it drains my time,wallet and patience. Meanwhile you dont need to deal with that when buying in EU.

For example found something like www.fategate.co... for about 149 € +ship.
Dont know about shops rep tho , supposedly it should be fine ?

So where do you buy from usually ?

Loleifos (3 meses atrás) #31103011Personally, I shop from
Animerch.dk (Danish shop, I go to their physical store and buy stuff, haha;; )
and
Otaku-planete
They're both somewhat expensive, but I like avoiding taxes

Sorry but that danish shop is disgustingly expensive and otaku-planete says preorders closed :( I may try to mail them about that cause they have a good price

S-Dawg (3 meses atrás) #31102434We always get charged a minimum of 20% ( in my case 30% if it`s over 50 euros worth) no matter the price or shipping method PLUS my stuff gets held up in that customs hellhole for a week to eleven days...It sucks big time :(

It depends on your country. I'm from Spain and SAL Small Packet and even Airmail get through customs just fine.

xTAZORx (3 meses atrás) #31101743Do you have to pay custom fees even when the shipping method is SAL small packet?
If that's the case, you have it harsh then :/

To be honest I usually risk eBay imports. I look for sellers who undervalue the parcels, marking as "gift" so there's a good chance of it coming through without any extra fee.
As for local shops, there is one in Hungary, but I find it expensive, although if tax hits me I'm more or less up to their price range with my imported figures - learnt this the hard way. So I buy from them once in a while. My biggest complaint is they have a very limited stock, and mostly only the newest items.

Most of my figures all come from Archonia, they are very good, have very good customer service and they are quick. Only downside is that their prices have skyrocketed the last few years...

The EU shops that I mostly use now are Anime-figuren.de, very good shop, but he gets his stock rather late from Japan (it might take 1-2 months after Japanese release). But if you know this beforehand, there is no problem there. This shop has the best prices in Europe by far.

Another really good one is Sukipan, the owner responds to your queries within a few hours (a day at most) and shipping is very fast. Just a couple of weeks after Japanese release your figure will be at your door. Or that was just my luck with my Deep Sea Girl Miku. :D Prices might be on the high side though, but that also really depends on the figure.

So, I would advise one of these three; Archonia, Anime-figuren.de or Sukipan :)

I can recommend Allblue World. Prieces are a bit higher than yorokonde but sometimes they still have figures that are already sold out at yorokonde. And their customer service is nice and fast.

Yorokonde seems good enough. That archonia site looks so bad :D and the price is way too high also.
Indeed looking good so far.
weeb (3 meses atrás) #31101517personally i prefer to risk it and buy from japan as eu shops are too expensive imo haha but play asia have an option where you pay the fees upfront when you pay postage which is good
i know figuya and yorokonde are popular but i like solarisjapan for released figures since they undervalue

It is true that the prices of a lot of EU shops are higher. But if you look at the total price including shipment, invoice etc than the shops that using higher prices can be cheaper in the end. My advice is to calculate it carefully and then decide what is for you the best option. For me service is also an important aspect by ordering figures. In fact i can live with paying a little more and knowing that if something goes wrong with the product or shipment i can count on the customer service.
EU online shops where i have good experiences with: Archonia (Belgium, good customer service, quick shipments, well packed) and Reddotcommerce (Netherlands, Well packed, good and what i prefer: honest service (when something goes wrong or isn't available you receive a fair response), slower with shipments).

Had a not so good experience with Yorokonde once (bad packaging). Then again the prices are really not half bad.

Figuya is rather expensive, while at least I haven't got any complaints about it.

Like some others before, I'd recommend anime-figuren.de. Only good experiences so far, except that their release dates seem not to be always up-to-date. But having the MFC database, I see no problem here.

Just ordered a prize figure from Sukipan once, but it seems to be a good option, too

Edit: They're all located in Germany btw
