Actually I don’t know if this site has yuri but they seem to have everything else so I don’t see why they wouldn’t.
Mandarake
This site is another awesome one that has hard to find figures for good prices. The figures may be new or used but it’ll say in the item title. Although this part of the site claims to be in english most product titles are not. So all the menus and the check out process are in english but you’re gonna have to look at every picture to see if it’s a figure your looking for. Most product pictures aren’t the official pictures either. They’re pictures of the actual figures in their boxes that Mandarake has. Considering the deals you get though it doesn’t really bother me.
I was hesidant to use this site at first because I thought some deals seems to good to be true but the site I’m always promoting My Figure Collection has tons of user reviews in their forums. I bought the Haruhi Figma SP001 from them for about $50 with one day shipping. (She’s usually around $100 or more on ebay)

She came with her box and all the pieces but the PS2 video game was not included. Honestly I didn’t care about the video game I just wanted the figma so I was happy.

They also carry doujins there. They have both hentai and yaoi doujins and you can get either new or used. Just try to have more self control than me…I just spent $111 on Durarara yaoi doujins. Also most of the doujins have preview pages which is nice and for the yaoi ones they list seme/uke in the usual seme x uke style. (ex. Shizuo x Izaya)

The last note I’ll make is to pay attention to where your buying your items from. Mandarake is a series of stores in Japan and if you’re not careful your order will have to ship from multiple places. They don’t ship things to a different store to ship it to you in one bath. So you might have to pay shipping on multiple items. They do give you many reminders to check your cart for that issue though.

Have fun shopping!

If you haven’t been to this site to buy figures then I’d check it out. They sell new preorders and even older used figures. You can get a lot of good deals like…
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann – Yoko & Nia set – EX Figure – Sega Prize for only ¥1000. Two figures for about $11.

Here is an excerpt from their site:

Revisiting a Little Old Buissness

I’ve talked about this site before but it’s always worth another mention. If you’re into collecting anime, manga, and video game merchandise go to this site!

My Figure Collection

The site has gone through a lot of changes since the last time I talked about it. Not only can you keep track of your figures but also miscellaneous merchandise like dakimakuras, cups, and other random goods. My figure collection is a great place to keep track of your inventory, orders, and have a wishlist. They have contests to win figures and a great community. Also there’s a sales page where users sell their figures. You can find some older figures for sale this way which is nice. The search engine has also been improved. Have fun & send me a friend invite if you join! My user name is Ampzr.

What do you Figure?

I don’t know how many people out there are into figure collecting. I am one of those people though. If you happen to collect anime figures and don’t know about this site yet, go!!

My Figure Collection

The site is only for anime/manga figures, but it’s a great place to keep track of your inventory, orders, and have a wishlist. They have contests to win figures and a great community. At first it took my a little bit of work to figure out how to search for my figures, but once you get the hang of it it’s easy. Have fun & send me a friend invite if you join!
