    One Sixth One Stop = 1/6 store locator service + weekly 1/6th webisode show

    Hi there,

    Ever since I got into the 1/6th figure scene more than around 5 years ago, I noticed that I constantly asked this question: "Where can I find (enter name of 1/6th product)". And then I also noticed other collectors asked the same thing.

    I always saw people on forums asking about how and where to find specific parts or they would mention they were going away on vacation our out of town and would ask where all the cool 1/6th shops were and only a few people would respond if any.

    Because of this, I said to myself, wouldn't it be cool if there was a site that focussed on helping collectors get themselves more accessible to those stores without asking? Just find out what it is you're looking for and the it will list a whole bunch of stores based on your specific needs.

    Well, after 3 years of this project being off and on in, the project is finally realized.

    I present to you One Sixth One Stop www.onesixthonestop.com

    I represent a team of collectors who have pooled our time and knowledge together through years of collecting, purchasing from stores all over the world as well as travels (mainly in Asia and parts of the US) and together we now have this site which is literally your One Stop to One Sixth shopping.

    Or motto is "bringing both worlds closer" ...... which is bringing the 1:1 world and the 1:6 world closer together by connecting the retailers with the collectors and the collectors with the retailers.

    Let's say you were looking for loose female accessories, just click on the "category search" and select female accessories and it will present you a list of stores that carry them.

    Another common question is, "I am in Hong Kong / Japan. Where should I go to shop for 1/6th figures?" This one is easy, just click Hong Kong or Japan in the location search and some of the listings will even provide maps and directions on how to get there.

    Another thing we decided to do is that, you will see that some stores have the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund logo attached to their store listing. This means that this particular store is a contributor to the fund as we donate a percentage of their contribution to us to the fund. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund was established in 2000 to provide financial support for the dependents of United States military personnel lost in performance of their duty. For more information, please visit http://www.fallenheroesfund.org/About-IFHF.aspx

    And finally, to top things off, one of our founders is passionate about the hobby as well as filmmaking and he thought that it would be awesome to have an "Entertainment Tonight / Access Hollywood style" show but about the 1/6th figure industry. So there will be figure reviews, we're going to visit local stores and talk to the store owners. We're also going to be visiting collector's shrines and interviewing fans of the hobby and much more. We're open to suggestions as to what you would want to see on the show. Currently the segments are being produced and we're hoping to air them exclusively on our site on October of 2009.

    For the time being, you can see who will be hosting our show as we introduce to you our One Stop Girls:

    http://www.onesixthonestop.com/onestopgirls.html

    Anyways, we thought it would be a good idea to introduce ourselves to the community as we get closer to the airing of our show.

    Enjoy the site and please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected] for questions on how to use the site and suggestions for the upcoming webisodes.

    Definitely a great idea!

    I would suggest grouping the areas into countries, so on the "Asia - Hong Kong, China Taiwan" page each country's shops are grouped together. That would be far better than having shops listed in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan then Hong Kong again.

    BTW, the Toy Star shop in Nam Cheong Street, Shamshuipo, Kowloon, Hong Kong has closed.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll work it into the system. If there are any other stores that are closed, please do let me know. We were only able to find alot of the international sites through web surfing.

    I think this is a really cool idea. I noticed you don't have TTL under Brands.

    I would like to see a way to search multiple criteria at the same time, ie ACE in the USA or Soldier Story, Modern Boxed in Hong Kong.

    At the same when we were putting the site together, TTL wasn't around.

    But we're definitely going to put that in as it is very new and has alot of new decent stuff.

    We thought about the location and brand criteria together and currently that is something that we're going to put off on the side for now but it is on our agenda to integrate into the system. Right now we want to make sure all the info is accurate and up to date and then once all the tweaks are done to the site, we'll start working to see how we can make it even better.

    But it definitely sounds like it is off to a good start. Our most important thing at the moment is looking for content to develop for the videos before we run out of ideas. Currently we plan to air 2x 5 minute webisodes were week until the end of December. After that we'll see how well the site is being recieved and if people are actually enjoying the video aspect.

    In the end, we just want to see what we would want to see as collectors ourselves.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    How about some interviews with people in the industry? If the site got popular enough maybe you could get scoops on upcoming releases.

    Re: One Sixth One Stop = 1/6 store locator service + weekly 1/6th webisode show

    yeah, the team and I thought about adding scoops on new figures but we didn't want to step on the toes of anyone here because I find a good source of news and it would be just doubling up the news. So we wanted to focus on the news of the retailers more such as sales, items that just got in stock or items up for pre-order.

    We'll definitely put up more stores on there as people suggest it.

    Its going to be a little slow on the updates until October because right now we're producing the segments that will be airing in October. So there's alot that is involved as we want to make it appear very professional.

    As the site gets more and more popular, we hope to collaborate with the retailers to have contests going on. We haven't decided what yet but the main focus is to help retailers do well in the industry and in the end keep it growing and expanding.

    I find that the big toys out there are things like Transformers, He-Man, Ninja Turtles, Lego, Star Wars, 4" GI Goes, Superheroes but when you say 1/6th to the average toy guy, sometimes you gotta explain it to them more by saying "12 inch figures". So in the end our goal is to create even more awareness than there already is about the inudstry and as the industry grows, we'll see more of the figures that we want to see made into the 1/6th format.

    We hope that you all will use our site like a resource and we can assist in making your 1/6th purchasing decisions.
