Great collection. I really want the Troikas but can't afford them just now. I'm in the UK so adding postage bumps up the price too much :(

Has anyone tried buying Toy Story figures off of the Japanese auction site, "buyee"? They seem to have a wide selection but I'm worried about international purchases.

With all my work I have to finish, I'm definitely going to delay my Woody doll review. Sorry guys. :(

On an unrelated note, I'm curious to hear whether or not DCP has taken my email into consideration after forwarding it to product management.

Welp, I was looking through the pages and came across some good stuff. Only problem is, I don't use yen and I've heard some bad things about the site. Among some of the stuff I saw, I found some of the Medicom figures (Andy, Sid, and Janie with the Pterodactyl head). However there is one auction that I found that has a Medicom Rocky loose. here's the link: http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/n142065391

EDIT: On the very next page, I found a sealed one. http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/f151548431

EDIT (again): Here's something AMAZING that I would LOVE to get, but like I mentioned, I don't use yen. http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/f143210362

I'm just throwing this out there:

I can't tell what shipping is for either item. And if you hear the website isn't legit, thats also an issue

BUT:

I don't use "yen" is pretty silly. Its a currency right now thats very weak against the american dollar. 1 yen = 0.008 US Dollars. That means that giant lot is about $16 and the sealed rocky is about $90. For a figure that sells for $300+ its definitely worth a second look into the credentials of the site, regardless of currency.

Yeah I've been trying to figure out if that site is trustworthy or not but even translating the page doesn't help. I don't have the first clue what to do.

I did Google it though and there are some stories about international shipping charges racking up because the items get posted to so many points in Japan (which you pay an individual fee for) before they even leave the country, that it made the purchase way more expensive than they initially thought.

I've been put off, despite those crazy cheap prices, purely because I can't make head nor tail of how it all works.

I guess I wasn't too clear with that. I live in the US and I understand that you can get yen if you go to the bank or something, but I'm not sure how much shipping is for the items. I also don't trust the site, considering that a lot of people say that there are some bad things about the site. Also, I don't really have the money for stuff right now as I don't have a job (I'm 15) and my parents are on a tight budget.

Has anyone attempted to replicate a different expression for Woody or Buzz, and if so how or with what type of material?

I gave my Animal Lovin' Ken to a buddy of mine. We both collect 1:6 figures, too.

Here's my correct See N Say toy, complete with pull string, and it actually works

Image

My DS Woody and Buzz. Woody has a new pull ring installed, but his string function broke- I tried to fix it, but now its just pulled out completely and won't retract at all. Buzz is the Spanish/English version. Woody has the older hands, splayed like they are in the film, but has the new face. Buzz has all the movements/functions - laser, karate chop, voice simulator, spring opening helmet, pop out wings with lights (one wire was broken on mine when I tried to get his batteries out)

Or maybe you should get a Toy Story Collection Rex or Toy Story 3 Thinkway Rex because you don't have a Rex! >:(

This year it's Toy Story 20th anniversary, and Medicom comes back to make a perfect replica of Woody, standing at 15 inches, it's nearly fully articulated inside of the figure, just a masterpiece that only hardcore Toy Story fans would buy... Let's hope that medicom someday make more figures for this line in scale... The sad thing about this collector piece is the price, costing about 440 dollars, it's like buying 2 masterpiece Ultra Magnus from Takara(!!)



Anyways, guys, this is the perfect replica that any company has ever made... and now, it's up on Pre-order on Big Bad Toy Store, arriving in December, the 20TH anniversaryof the first movie.

Nice to see you again! We we're just discussing the figure over in the 20th Anniversary thread.
http://pixarplanet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=14335&start=30

The asking price from the BigBadToyStore is over Medicom's suggested price. The figure should cost $380 at most.

Hi Guys. After a really long time, now I´m able to star working on Pete´s and Zurg boxes. I remember that some of you created the boxes and I wonder if you could help me with some tips or advices...

I´m not sure about measures and I have to start from zero.
