I've got most of my Kaiyodos from jubei88, great, reliable seller from Hong Kong.

Maybe it would be an interesting idea to do the poll again? A lot can change in a year!

Just wanted to give a mixed review of seller toyofspark. They sold me a large lot of Kaiyodo and Capcom items, including Expo figures. One was broken (into many pieces), and when I asked for a replacement or refund for that single piece, they first tried to sell me a $1000 lot that contained another copy, then said that they would send a replacement, but only if I paid $25 additional for shipping. I found the whole experience rather frustrating, but do with the information what you will.

This is in contrast to eBay seller klooi, who sold me an item with one small piece broken and immediately sent a replacement for free. So three cheers for klooi.

Back when I started collecting Dinotales years ago toyofspark always struck me as exorbitantly overpriced. Pretty much everything he sells you can get cheaper from brettnj.

You're right, their asking prices are generally outrageous, but on this one they accepted a best offer which was about on par with Brett's prices, especially given that they didn't charge me for the initial shipping. The big difference is that I know Brett will replace broken items (hasn't happened to me, but I've seen him offer it to others).

Brett has definitely compensated me for broken items in the past.

I would definitely let you know in that event! No such luck, sadly. But I have a Fukuiraptor skeleton with a broken jaw.

Have to give a shout-out to bookhuntingtim6o9c - not only is he selling Battats and shipping them to the UK at some of the most reasonable prices I've seen, he made a special trip to Target for me to get a figure I was missing http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/bookhuntingtim6o9c

I would like to add this seller; they sell a very wide range of incredibly realistic diorama trees/plants, and they are in 1:35 scale.

Only just noticed this thread.

I see it was suggested my page be listed months ago but I don't think it was done.

Don't know the parameters of the thread but if appropriate I'd appreciate it being added.

And to anyone looking at it, I automatically sell anything there directly for 10% (occasionally more) less than the eBay price and have gotten most of the items that are or will be listed there for far less for my (almost 100) direct buyers who ordered upon original release or bid via me and my source on YAJ.

Thanks and thanks for the suggestion FR.
Brett

Sure, I'll add it. What's the address?

Correct re: board and eBay ID's.

I wouldn't mind you indicating in the first post, since Kaiyodos are widely enough available and things like Expo figures, etc. are tough to get, especially for fair prices, that I can get virtually anything from Japan.

Thanks again.
