It's an investment-type form of business. If you had a ton of capital going into it, you could make a respectable amount. Then again, that same capital might be better put to use in formal investments such as stocks and bonds, since you would have a disadvantage with the slower market of figs and high shipping costs.

Hey /jp/, I figure you guys order from AmiAmi often enough to know if they'll be okay with this. I ordered two Homura BQ's and now, after looking at the quality, I really now longer want them. Thing is, in December they're re-releasing the Sonico figure. Now her total comes up to more than the two BQ's and I was wondering if AmiAmi would do an exchange? Reason I want to ask you guys first, is I've heard it's somewhat easy to get banned from AmiAmi. Plus, I wouldn't mind some pointers on the email in case it would be okay. I do have quite a few orders coming up in Aug - Oct so I don't mind paying for those then asking them.

Oh deary me, that bikini is simply too damn small for Selvaria, but the way she's almost bursting out of it is giving me undeniable feelings of want

>> No.7682617


Isn't that partially due to surrounding costs? Like the person who bought it in the first place probably had to pay shipping and toll for it. In some cases you might need double the price just to not end up losing money on re-selling the figure.

I've been noting down some of my costs. 6500 yen figure, 2200 yen shipping, 2800 yen toll. That is about 5000 yen in addition to the price 6500. Meaning that selling for twice the price, I'd gain 1500 yen, assuming buyer pays shipping, and I can find a box with filling for free.

Might be possible to make money if you buy large enough shipments of items. That or picking stuff up from places who ship as "gift" instead of Amiami or HLJ.

>> No.7682635

That's unfortunate for you, but many countries don't have any sort of toll or import tax, which would make it a lot more viable. I've half-heartedly considered doing something like this myself, but it's a fair bit of initial capital to get the figures in the first place.

>> No.7682645


There are a lot of problems with the whole "buy figures to sell then later" ... to start if you bet on the wrong horse (say, Saber Excalibur) you are not going to make money, you are likely to lose it, we never can tell if someone is going to take off or not ...

The ones that can really play this game are the Japanese because not only are they safe from the exchange rates, pay little about shipping but also they dont pay the import taxes many of us do ... also they have access to exclusives we dont.

Their only real issue is language barrier and that is why the ones that act as proxies can make a killing.

MFC has been going down the shitter. I don't really pay attention to the images since I figure it was mostly going to be artsy-fartsy bullshit.

Sure, it was a good idea to expand the reviews to articles, which under my impression, would be written for useful things like buying/displaying/repair/custom tips and whatnot. Now it's become a blog and I'm starting to see shit like "Guise halp me find a character to cosplay plz xD ^_^ !!!" and "I'm going to bitch about shit on an order I couldn't double check before paying thus the shop is bad and I'll never use them again and neither should you!" which is really more for LJ than a figure collecting site.
