PostSubject: good sites for USA buyers?   Sat Apr 15, 2017 4:44 pm

Not sure where else to put this without stepping on toes but I need answers.

Besides Amazon, I've mostly been using either Minizoo or Happy Hen Toys
But none are perfect cuz Amazon is limited by brands, Minizoo despite a great collection has insane int. shipping costs (despite my past purchases..), and Happy Hen Toys usually has models for quite cheap but very limited by brand.
I'm just wondering what else is out there for an American buyer

Ebay usually. Toysrus has a couple Schleich but then you're paying full-on retail and often high shipping costs. Amazon as you mentioned is good as long as they have what you want and especially if you have Prime. Very Happy

Eh problem with ebay is that the shipping costs can really eat at you. Sometimes if you buy from same seller they cheapen the shipping, but still. But does depend what you buy cuz often I don't have problems.

Anyone know any others?

If you find the right seller shipping isn't usually too bad. Or some sellers offer free shipping with $25+ purchase which helps.

What brands are you seeking? Michaels has a smallish selection of Safaris, JoAnns a smaller one. Besides ToysRUs, Tractor Supply and Rural King have Schleich, as do some Walmarts. Targets has Battats. Hobby Lobby has Mojo Fun as well as Safari. Beyond that, I don't know anywhere besides the online dealers.

Edit to say I was at Hobby Lobby this evening and they had a fair amount of Wild Republic bags and some toobs; one of the dinos was the same mold as a stamped K&M that I have.

Oh ha I actually meant the online sellers in particular
Yeah, the more brands the better. I kind of buy from all of the major ones. Not much Bullyland anymore though. But Schleich, Safari, Papo, Mojo, and CollectA are a must. i mean the more the merrier

edit: on a side note though, I'm glad you mentioned Michael's. It reminded me when I got my first figurine from there ^^

I like Rainbow Resource Center for Safari Ltd figures that Michael's and Hobby Lobby doesn't stock. They still don't have the full line, but their prices are decent and shipping is reasonable.

I looked through that just now. They mostly seem to have older figures but that big rhino for only $9? I feel so cheated from what I paid on eBay haha >.<

edit: and here's the first figurine that started my whole collection (to my knowledge) http://www.rainbowresource.com/product/sku/035104
