BLEACH Megahouse Excellent Model Series

Postby shawn » March 8th, 2007, 8:32 am

OK guys.... there has been posts about these figures scattered over some threads here and there in this forum. I thought I'd get one up as I love the series and figures albeit I have non. :kuruc:

I'm a bit late to these figure collecting but does anyone knows a good place to start?

Found these... but what do they mean by (Unofficial)? Is the quality more inferior than the (Official) or rather (Megahouse)? Does it mean it's a bootleg? :hate:

As you can make out in the price, Ichigo and Rukia only costs half as much as Renji, Yoruichi and Matsumoto figures. That does say something in itself, doesn't it? :ma:

By the way, what are toysnjoys.com like? In the sense of selling bootlegs. Any takers?

Toys N joys is listed as a bootleg seller on the forum:
http://forums.zero-type.com/viewtopic.php?t=526

Unofficial is probably the slick way of saying bootleg.

It's also were Susano got her fake Renji.
I'd steer clear of this place. :giku:

I have these two figures if you're interested. Their brand new, and still wrapped up in the maker's packaging. I can match the price too, and they're real!

Hi Val, thanks for the offer. But at the moment, I'd rather save up and spend it on the shipping fees that I still owe you. :ase:

Ooh.... by the way, which two figure are you talking about? Ichigo and Rukia?

Yeah Shawn, don't buy from Toys n Joys. They're all bootlegs and a company you do not want to deal with all around. The company ignored all contact I attempted to make with them and they have lied to more customers than just I about their stuff shipping when they do not even have the items on hand. All around, they're a bad company to deal with.

A couple weeks after I placed my order, they placed those "unofficial" listings of Rukia and Ichigo. The was one of the last straws and one of the things that decided my mind on pursuing a charge back with that company.

For the most part I've only seen one bootleg item on Tisinc, but I've heard that their service is a bit on the unreliable side.

What's their id on eBay?

I don't know if you guys recall but we discussed this store once and all of their art books are fake too, espcially the older Japanese Sailor Moon books and Kodansha art books. I didn't realize their figures were fake too.

Steve is from Hawaii, and he said Toys n Joys is a mom & pop shop in Hawaii. He was surprised when I showed him the site because he knows the store and it's been around for a long time in Hawaii but it's not big or anything.

:hate: Are these BLEACH Megahouse figures getting re-released? I saw it on this UK website saying preorder is being taken now for Jan re-release. Anyone heard anything, or are they just stocking up bootleg figures? Which I doubt tokyotoys.com is doing.

Ooo, I've not heard anything about them being rereleased, but I'm certainly going to look further into it. I've yet to get any of them as real figures, so I'll certainly bite at a chance to get the official ones now.

"Looks further down the Ichigo page and nearly faints." Yay!!! All of them are getting rereleased from the looks of it. And the crane prize Orihime with Kon is great too. There goes all my money for December/ January. :keke:

I really hope so too. :goku: If it is, I'll be looking forward to importing those as £35 a pop is quite dear. Ouch!

A rerelease would be very timely, Yoruichi and Rangiku are going for ridiculous prices if you can even find them nowadays. I do love Bleach, but Megahouse's figures of Shounen Jump characters tend to be extremely boring to the point I can't bring myself to buy Rukia even though I'm very fond of her :tetsuya:
