After the Pokemon and Hello Kitty promo in the U.S., we're getting a "Holiday" Happy Meal train with mostly recent Illumination movie characters.

Sorta similar to the Happy Meal Birthday Train from 1994.

I don't know. I don't even think Youkai watch the tv show is on in my country on any channels. I bought the toys for my nephews and niece and they like them, but they simply just call them pokemon.
I don't think the new Powerpuff girls show came out here either, but at least we had the old one, so it's not a completely unknown franchise here.

Yokai Watch died here because they aired the first season on weekday mornings, people watched it and bought the toys, but then they ran out of dubbed episodes and stopped showing it, so the toy sales stopped and the series died.

Which of the 2 Playmates Voltrons do you recommend? Scale isnt an issue, but articulation is
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>6624314
There are more than 2. There's a new version of the Legendary Lions with black bodies, spread wings on the Black Lion, etc. Then the 13" one. A new cheaper one coming out soon that's 8" I think. Didn't look like it had a sword. Then the die-cast one. At the moment I think the best options are the Legendary ones or the 13" one.
>>
>>6624332
If you actually want to play with your voltron, the 13" one is the way to go. The articulation is fine for the black lion since it has electronics in its shoulders and legs. The die-cast black lion has better articulation in its arms and legs but loses articulation in its wings and horns.

The die-cast voltron was pretty much made because someone went "okay we need a cheaper alternative to the larger combining toys while also appeasing to the fans who want a metal toy" and just added die-cast to a sculpt that didn't have the right engineering to support the weight. I only bought the die-cast one because it was smaller.

>>6624317
The playmates classic lions is dead on an almost exact copy of the SOC sculpt opposed to how the legendary defender lions were copied from the in-show CGI models. And honestly I'm looking forward to it. The black lion will have electronics too much like the legendary black lion.
>>
wait for the Lego one!
>>
>>6624314
I was looking at this and was trying to figure out which release this was or if it was a custom paint job. Then i realized this is some dudes cosplay.

I have the four lions for the Netflix combiner. Waiting on WalMart to put the stack of black lions on clearance in a month or two.

Waiting on the LEGO and Classic one next year. I can't Justify spending over $300 on the premium one since I like to fiddle around with my collection before putting them on display.

Hey folks, Santa here. Sign ups are now closed and assignments are out! Check your email.

This year's email: toysecretsanta2017@gmail.com

Remember when selecting your gift:
25 - 35 USD is the recommended price range, but it's a bar. If you want to go higher, you're welcome to do so. If you want to stay in the price range don't feel you aren't doing enough, it's fine. And if you just want to spend 25 that's great too.

Don't feel bad about how much you're willing to spend. Sending something is all that matters. Make your gift personal. Add a card or a bit of candy. Wrap your present! Get into the holiday spirit! That's what it's all about.

November 26th: I need everyone to email me with a proof of purchase or a shipping number to prove you're still on track with your gift. (I extended this date because I forgot some of you will take advantage of black friday sales most likely)
First Week of December: Your gift must be mailed and a shipping number sent my way. If not, you need to explain why and how long it will take.

Keep me up to date!

Any guides/pointers on selling toys online and not getting scammed?
12 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.

Professional ebayer reporting in. Vintage american toys (80's era) was what I started with. I'm no longer in toy niches, but I have plenty of experience with it.

>>6636174
some of this was ass backwards advice

I started with toys because it was my own personal hobby and thus I knew the market and the items within it very well.

It was an easy project to get into and profit in because I knew the product intimately, it was easy for me to find profits because I was well versed.

The mistake with dealing in "what you know"/personal interest items is if you have any level of success, it may kill the interest for you. After 3 years of dealing in toylines I personally collected I had to take a good 2-3 years off from even thinking about anything related to them. To this very day my interest in the various lines I collected has waned so I only get the more interesting stuff now where before I would take any and everything related as long as it was in toy form

in my experience ebaying in general has a significantly low scam rate unless you're dealing in high risk items (high value electronics, iphones, videocards, etc), far below 1% much less 10. I might have 2 cases out of every thousand transactions that is a blatant scam.

what you WILL get a ton of is buyers that are self entitled, nitcpicky cunts who will try to squeeze every dime out of you however they can.

I would seriously recommend against selling toys as a side business. The unending poorfaggotry of the people you have to deal with will wear you down. Just don't. Find another way to make ends meet. It's a trap and you won't realize it until you're thousands in debt over unsold stock with no way out. Believe me, you don't want to that hanging around your neck.

Pick any of the big forums and go. Fwoosh, for example. It's pretty easy to sell there, just understand that they have a post count threshold and they put new people at a purposeful disadvantage to build trust.

Alrighty ladies and gents, its November and that means that Lucio will be out soon! He’ll be the first in the line that includes the female customization parts unlike Emil, whose fem parts came out after his release.

Now, on to the news that we all waited for, Polynian Clover and Shamrock are back everyone! Recently shown off at AK Garden along with the new addition to the Grey Flesh line, Grey Flesh Mel! Pre-orders for Clover and Shamrock are set to open next Friday. Grey Mel has also been stated to be the next in the line after Shammy and Clover. Now those who missed out or are new to the line can have Shamrock, Clover and Ianna displayed together come next year!

Anyways feel free to share your Poly’s adventures and have fun! And as always, welcome newcomers, we hope you enjoy your stay.

Really, this is the first time the Agumon mode looks good enough to me.
>>
>>6634994
Found it, well maybe. I found two different price tags on Ebay listings of these toys. Didn't find any tags on Agumon or Gabumon, but on Birdromon and Patamon so no clue what the exact originals in this case costed.

The pricing is pretty wide gap, 7.99 on birdro with a Kmart sticker, and 9.99 on Patamon with a sticker I don't recognize. Doesn't mention any store on the sticker. Not sure which is the more accurate to MSRP. was the 7.99 from one of MANY Kmart price reductions years after you stopped finding it in regular stores? Or was the 9.99 from some dedicated toy store that was selling it for a markup?

Also calculating for inflation, 9.99 is roughly 15 in today's money, and considering how the toy market currently is, maybe they would have been charged for $17 or more.

In japan at least they cost about 3000 jpy of the time.
When searching for figure prices, look for the last row of numbers above the barcode.
In this case, Wargreymon cost 2980 yen MSRP
