No I did not, also bought it from Hobby Island. Mine is still on the way but I sold it to another guy. Its too big and I prefer to display my figures in glass cabinets because of dust ect.

I do however import all my figures these days. I basically get my figures 4 months earlier than local retailers and I sometimes pay over 1k less than local prices all costs included.

I have a Aramex Global Shopper account, so I use them. Normally when I buy a figure from, lets say Hong Kong, its at my front door within a week :)

Yes I've bought a few figures from Sideshow directly, but most of the time I buy from Online sites in Hong Kong cuz they are a bit cheaper.

Long time I have been trying to get some vintage 80's toys, specifically He-Man and the Masters of Universe. Came across some in Junkmail. Guy selling is legit and the deal went very smooth. If any one else is looking for some vintage 80's stuff I can recommend this guy with no issues.

Huge Selection Of Vintage Figures From The 80's For Sale (He-Man,Thundercats,Bionic Six,Etc) | Junk Mail

Below is his shop :



And here is the first two figures I ordered from him :





Poor He-Man lost some of his blonde dye but hey.......for a 30+ year old toy not too shabby.

Edit : Oh, and pretty neat show to watch : [URL='https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7053920/?ref_=ttep_ep_tt']The Toys That Made Us[/URL]

I already posted a thread in the "Other" classified section on carb. But I haven't gotten any responses yet.

Is anyone selling a 2015 Dota 2 Aegis of the immortal 1/5th scale model? I have 2016 and 2017.

She has arrived! Pics are just of my first model that I'm using to experiment and learn the ropes. Going well so far. I've learnt a great deal already and cannot wait to do the next one. Still WIP at the moment.

Then just a quick mini-print to test out printing for those DnD folk. Where ever they are. (I may have accidentally used way too much primer...)

Any suggestions on what should be done next? ;)IMG_20180719_171400.jpegIMG_20180719_171403.jpegIMG_20180718_204138.jpegIMG_20180718_204548-01.jpeg
