    Is there anywhere to find out more recent information/reviews about certain websites?

    For example I was interested in pre-ordering a figure at one site because it's the only place offering the pre-roder currently but the reviews of that website are from years ago and say that it isn't a good choice. I'm not sure if that is how the website is today but I was curious if I should just chance it or are there other ways to get more information on a website.

    (If you are curious the website in question is otakumode.com aka Tokyo Otaku Mode.)

    He everyone, I actually have several topics:

    Topic 1:
    So, I realized that the database here for figure online shops is not really up to date.
    Several shops do not exist anymore.
    Several shops that exist (in Australia etc.) are not listed.
    Will this be updated?
    Or is there a way to flag that somehow?

    Topic 2:
    Why are not all figures from Myethos listed here?
    And, is there a way to allow that? That would be great.
    It would be neat to just have all my figs listed here...

    Topic 3:
    This is more of a feedback, I am struggling with posting and responding to the forums / clubs. It is rather complicated to just get out a new comment or topic.
    Is it just me?
    Guess I need to study the FAQs more. Maybe they can help with handling. (although it should not be the goal to have a complex forum / post handling)

    Topic 4:
    Since I am too dumb to understand how to post sth. (will try to look into the FAQs later), one personal question:
    Does ANYONE have expereince with the ANIMATE online shop?
    I was considerung buying figures there. But I could not find any post / info / Review on myfigurescollection.net

    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    Not as far as I know. I'd regard the shop part of the site a bit dead, because it isn't actively maintained or used most of the time.

    Because they are a Chinese company, and only the ones with a Japanese origin are allowed. There are a few debates across the site about this, and the site owner hasn't shown any interest in changing the rules (and the admins that remain won't go rogue).

    Can't say I find anything difficult about it? Then again, I grew up in the age where forums were commonplace. The pagination doesn't work properly when it comes to searching/general browsing though.

    Does ANYONE have experience with the ANIMATE online shop?

    Weirdly, there doesn't seem to be a shop thread for Animate. It would belong in this club: club/72/discuss... Can't say I have any personal experience I'm afraid. I know Animate operates more than one site (there's a JP, international and US sites that I know about), so you may want to specify which exact one you're interested in.

    As tharglet mentioned, all store specific questions are directed at the Figure Site and Shop Forum club. Here is the thread for Animate: thread/9716

    I shop frequently on Animate JP's site (www.animate-onl...) so if you have any questions about that, I can probably answer you.

    Hi there! There's a club here club/72/discuss... dedicated to all store talk. Just search for whatever store you're interested in. This is the thread for TOM specifically: thread/7182

    There's also the shop page on the website: shop/ It's not used as frequently as the shops forum, but you can check out reviews there as well. shop/101/feedba...

    Unfortunately I don't purchase from the international site as frequently; my last order from there being from Spring 2019. I've never had issues with any of my orders though. I've only used them for in-stock items and my packages arrived safely packed and quickly (via EMS).

    In the context of model kits, how similar do two entries need to be for them to be considered variants? What percentage of parts do they need to share?

    For instance, ITEM #25405 and ITEM #58944 share about 90% of their parts, so they're definitely variants of each other.

    On the other hand, ITEM #25405 and ITEM #349343 share maybe 15% of their parts (limb internal structures are the same). Can they still be considered variants of each other?

    Hello,
    Just want to say that the character page of "Aconite" created by me is deleted. Due to some sudden issues I have been quite busy in these few days, and so I don't have time to create a new entry related to her. She has quite a number of official and doujin goods, and I am planning to add them all within this month. So...if you don't mind, please also recover her character page.
    Sorry for the troubles I have caused!

    I don't know if I'm doing right since I've always stay away of social stuff. Ok, I've just bought this figure (www.ebay.es/itm...) and I can't find it in catalog. It's really well done but it doesn't stick good into its basis because holes are smaller than needed for figure to stay. As seen in second image, its box shows a Charmander and a Bulbasaur figures too. It looks like some fan made figures. I just want a bit more information about them (basically because I want to get other two).

    I think I should open a thread to make it more people see it, but I don't know how to do it.

    Thanks.

    You can't find it as it is an unlicensed (bootleg) product. Others available on Chinese marketplace sites...

    You could try heating the pegs to see if it makes them pliable enough to go into the holes, otherwise I'd just shave a bit of the pegs off with a craft knife or something.

    If I'm understanding correctly, you created a character entry but didn't link any items to it? If so, "orphan" entries will get deleted as per the rules of the site. Once you link an item to the character, the character entry can stay in the database.

    Hmm nope. Originally I linked her to a light novel but a VIB told me that the character(s) can only be linked with the books if the whole book only has that character(s). Then I unlinked Aconite and found that her character entry was deleted the next day.

    Aconite became an orphan entry after it was no longer linked to the book (or any other item). I'm not sure if the mods can recover deleted entries.
