Des Moines, Iowa. I thought i'd stop by my ToysRus and see what they had.



Not surprising. Seven ShinkenRed's shelf warming in an aisle.
On the other hand, Gold is sold out every time I go there. I wonder if he's just popular or if he's under-stocked.

The main reason that they are so high is the fact that they are older Figuarts. The older a Figuart gets, the higher their price seems to go. Drake & KickHopper shouldn't be real high honestly. The only ones you'll have trouble finding for a decent price is PunchHopper, TheBee, & Sasword.

Every know and then you can score them for a great price. I got TheBee for $45 shipped. Sasword I paid about $60 for, but he was worth it. I know that board member Big E scored PunchHopper for $55 shipped.

So, the main thing you have to have is patience. You'll find the figuarts you want for a good price, you just have to wait and watch.
Everything Zedd said in this post is entirely true. I just started collecting Figuarts aggressively in early January. But, even though I've spent a decent amount of money on the ones I do have, they're worth every single penny. The most I've paid so far for a figuart was $70 shipped. It was DiEnd from a seller on eBay. To me that wasn't bad at all, because he usually sells for more. Now I'm trying to hunt down Sasword for a decent price. I'm checking Mandarake a lot lately. I saw him for 5550 yen a week or two ago, but I think he's been sold since than.

And again, like Zedd said, being patient is the key.

My next purchases are more than likely going to be Kabuto and Gatack. Found them on eBay for $29.99 each. They're from the same seller, so he's combining shipping. He also has KickHopper, so I may get him too. I've been told by the seller that they're from the second release, so I won't have to deal with the bow-leggedness.

The latter, mostly. I think I heard he's 1 per case of 6?

Mandarake sells a bunch of stuff, but amongst their vast amount of merchandise, they sell Figuarts as well.

Yep, just came across it.

I only see one listing for Shinken Pink.

The pink has: Details
メーカー:バンダイ
状態:テープ2度貼り。箱少いたみ。

which translates via google to: Manufactured by: Bandai
Tape stuck twice: state. Pain a little box.

"Pain a little box"?.... there's minor damage to the box?

They're technically a "second hand" shop, so the figures are sold as is. But each time I've dealt with them, the boxes haven't had any significant damage (minor shelf wear, at the most), and the figures were basically in mint condition.

I usually type in figuarts, SHF, S.H.Figuarts, and SH Figuarts into the search box to get the most results.

Alright cool. I wish there was a photo of the actual item... but the price+shipping would (or should) be at least $15-20 less than the cheapest Shinken Pink I've found for sale at $95.

*edit* Sweet, I found one for 5,000yen, with the condition noted as "未開封/unopened", nothing about damage or somesuch. It's 500yen more than the one with "box pain" , but if my calculations are correct, instead of $95, the most this one should be will be around $80-ish via EMS (and a few days wait for a cheaper price is fine, as the $95 one was local).

They're exclusives so you're not going to find them for a price comparable to a regular release.

As Xenotome said, they are exclusive.

You will not be able to just order them from the regular Japanes sites. If you want them for less money then start searching Mandarake or contact a middleman.....but even then, the prices will still be higher than a regular Figuart.

I think all the Shinken Blue's and Greens are all gone on Mandarake. Granted they may have some pop up in the future but chances are slim. The Gokai Girls seemed to not have even shown up either there save for a Pink i just saw for 7000 yen.

Speaking of which interesting to see Mandarake is now gonna use SAL registered for all future shipments starting March 1st.
