I think what happens is that there is overstock of figures and these end up being sold at a retail price - the prize figures in a crane machine need to be updated so what's left over gets sold. This is my theory.
Risenfromashfig (Il y a 9 mois) #18992226I am new to anime figure collecting and got several prize figures as part of a lot of misc. figures I bought. I was impressed by their quality, but am confused about how people not in Japan can get their hands on prize figures. Do they get snatched up and imported? Do you have to get lucky and find a Japanese collector who has duplicates? How does this work? Thanks for explaining this to the newb. :)
