JPFigures.com experiences?
« on: August 06, 2019, 07:06:12 PM »
Has anyone purchased from the site jpfigures.com before? I've found a few things I'm interested in but have never used their site before, and wondered if anyone here had tried them.

I've never purchased from them myself, but they don't appear to be very reputable.  There is a reddit thread about anime merchandise scam sites, and jpfigures is mentioned.  Several people have made purchases through the site, were given fake tracking information, and never received their purchases.
https://www.reddit.com/r/AnimeFigures/comments/9myfmf/bootleg_megathread/

I browsed the site a bit and it does seem a bit suspect.  They have several retired figures that sold out everywhere else long ago, but they're selling them for between 20 and 30 bucks--suspiciously lower than they sell pre-owned on places like eBay, AmiAmi, and Mandarake.

I hope this helps.  I don't have any personal experience with them, so I'm afraid I can't be of any more help.

I only got into figure collecting a few months ago and have already heard many times that this is a scam site. Definitely avoid it! Most anywhere that claims to sell scale figures for really cheap prices is a scam and you'll receive either nothing, or a bootleg. And if you do shop for ones on eBay, beware of any listings that say "China version" as that just means "bootleg".
