    Hello- During the great Covid-19 shutdown, I rediscovered the GI Joes of my youth. Have started to pick up old Adventure Team Joes and work on them, restringing, reflocking, etc. It’s been a fun new hobby which my wife doesn’t quite understand. Ha ha. it’s good to be here. See you around the...

    Hello, everyone. I am not really new to the forum, I am just getting re-established. I have been in the 1/6th hobby since the very first days of GI Joe and the Adventure Team. I ran a customizing business for 10 years. I have two sons that are now in the hobby. One is serving proudly with...

    I have been in this hobby for over a decade. I regularly spend a lot on 1/6 scale items. And I think I make pretty decent money. However, it is reaching the point where I am getting priced out of the hobby. Call it inflation, call it whatever. It's just getting to the point where I can no...

    Hi all, New to the world of 1/6. After discovering the SUPER DUCK SET042 kit last week, which is actually Koyori from the old shmup game, Samurai Aces I jumped head first into this hobby. Ordered her along with the recommended Phicen S10D body. I'm still learning, and it seems to be quite the...

    See subject. EXAMPLE New DAM or whatever figure is released. MSRP is around $175.00 USD. Once it's released, it sells out from all sources within 2-3 months or less. The secondary market price after that is around $200.00 to $250.00 or more based on popularity/sought after factor by those...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. Most of my life I was a fan of 32mm miniatures, but from some time I got into 1/6 scale figures and these are amazing and so detailed. Almost like real. Anyway, I'm glad I can be here. I hope to know you better guys and share with you the hobby (however, you...

    Hello all, I have been inactive for quite some time due to a number of factors (school, a move, and the hobby prices spiking). I am slowly getting back in and trying to catch up with some of the new pieces. Due to this hobby being so expensive I branched out into other hobbies like the 1/12. I...

    I'm a new member and I'm not really good at introductions, but here goes nothing. Hello everyone! My name is Zelpha and I currently live in Salt Lake City. I'm new to the 1/6 figure hobby. I've been in the aBJD hobby for the last 12 years but left and sold everything off everything after getting...

    The idea of this thread: prices of new figures in 1:6 market are not comfort for newcomers (and for some "old belivers" in hobby), so - commercial part of a hobby become biggest part of a subject. Do You remember a time when price for good collectable action figure was < 10$ ? And term "good"...

    Hi everyone, I've been out of the hobby for a while due to real life and I've noticed the price jumps and the new big brands in town. I'm fairly old school meaning most of my collection is Dragon with some 21C for the nostalgia. I'm also a squad builder which as we all know is a huge kick to...

    Howdy. Most of you likely have no idea who I am. Some of the old timers may recognize the name. With the goal of promoting the hobby, a group of us recently tossed a number of ideas around. Essentially, nothing can happen without a united front. We all have to work together to keep this hobby...

    See subject. A respected 1:6 vendor and I had a discussion recently about the 1:6 hobby regarding the business aspect of the 1:6 hobby. The 1:6 vendor commented that collectors who used to actively "kit bash" are dwindling due to price. HOW SO? The rising cost of boxed figures. Mixed...

    Hi All, Does anybody know if Hobby Master uses somebody else's body for their Moshe Dayan figure? Or is it their own design/product? Thanks, Rich

    See subject. 2017 is coming to a close in a few days. This year we've seen a fair number of 1:6 offerings covering a variety of themes and varying in quality. The ever constant issues of price and quality remained the same and we've seen some notable disappointments in varying degrees from a...
