I don't know the real and true statistics of whether new and old 1:6 hobbyists utilize the OSW given how it's a shadow of its former self nowadays, but . . .
If any of you are doing any last minute Christmas 1:6 shopping for boxed figures, pre-orders, loose parts, etc., then be sure to consider and utilize the US based online vendors for your 1:6 shopping.
I know it's easier and convenient to just order from overseas (China/Hong Kong) due to price and convenience, but keep in mind those vendors too are experiencing a variety of challenges that may not be apparent to the casual hobbyist who is oblivious to such things.
The few US based vendors remaining all have a well earned and established credibility and reputation and too are 1:6 hobbyists like us.
Please consider them when doing last minute or regular shopping.
Below are a few to consider.
DISCLAIMER: I'm simply doing this to promote 1:6 vendors I know of / have done business with in the past and not being compensated in any manner whatsoever (i.e. no conflict of interest or impropriety).
