Nice idea but where are you shipping from? Import taxes etc to the UK can be a nightmare.

Welcome, ToyOrigin!
Alex, according to their website, they are in Georgetown, ON. If there is any justice in the world, shipping from another one of Her Majesty's realms to your ought to be more decently priced, but who knows? Well, I am sure many people know, just not me.

Nope...sadly Canada is the worst place to buy from for Europeans, costs loads shipping, takes forever and loads of import tax as that goes up with the price of shipping being taxed too! The shop for models and Transformers in Canada called 'Ages 3&Up' actually drive across the border to the USA to post their items internationally!!

Canada can be a pain, got royally stung for import duty when I bought an item from there. Shame. Still, if you had a UK retailer, they'd have to stump up and then, eventually, so will we. That's how come HT are so expensive here.

CHEERS!

Currently we are shipping from our warehouse in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada. Our website says Georgetown but we are not far from there - it will soon be updated! Smile We plan to in the future have a distribution partner in the United States so we can fulfill customer orders for American (and some International) customers from a US shipping location and save on import/shipping costs for both the customer and ourselves!


THANKS for the warm welcome fellas Smile glad to be here and offer Support where necessary, share informative articles about 1:6 scale collecting and the hobby we all love, offer product updates and much more. It's nice to stay in touch with the community and we intend on placing a significant focus on this, being readily available on Facebook, Instagram and LIVE chat on our website during certain hours.

We plan on sharing a whole TON of articles and the first of many is How To Display Your Hot Toys Collection - a topic that for seasoned collectors may seem obvious but for people just entering the hobby they may be a little lost.

Thank you as well and welcome, I think you'll find most of the members on this forum have been collecting 1/6 for decades and are quite artistic, although I'm sure any new collectors would welcome advice.

For the most part, I'm afraid the US is only slightly less helpful to UK collectors than Canada. We still get hit at customs.

CHEERS!

We have had a great response (thanks for your emails and comments on social media platforms) on our previous articles so we are going to keep the ball rolling while we add new products everyday!

A question we see from new collectors entering the hobby all the time is: what are the differences between scales? What are the pros/cons of each?
So we put together a quick informative piece on this issue: Action Figures & Collectibles Scale: 1:6 Scale 1:12 Scale - What Does It Really Mean?

out of curiosity do you have anything in stock yet? I made a quick visit on your website but could only find preorders (cool website by the way!)

Thanks very much for the comment - we are definitely trying our best to offer a platform that is Easy to Navigate, Secure and most of all has everything all in one place! All the best brands. We are continually adding new suppliers and partners on a regular basis so check back often and be sure to join our mailing list.

Regarding your question: at the moment since we're brand new we only have a few select items in stock and most things are on Pre-Order as of current. Of course, over the coming weeks (and months) this will change as items are released and added to the website. We will be updating the website in the near future to have a very clearly defined section for 'In Stock' items versus Pre-Order items.

For those of you that were not able to make it out to New York Comic Con 2018 we will be updating our blog throughout the weekend with tons of great content so stay tuned!

Items will overtime come into stock (there are select items in stock now for example) but we do not carry lots and lots of excess inventory - order numbers are very much based on pre-orders collected with a few additional, if any, in some cases.
We highly recommend placing a Pre-Order for an item you are interested in to guarantee supply or after the release of an item the price could increase to reflect a change in market price(s) if applicable.

Have a great upcoming weekend!

I’ve read several of them as well. A couple of the latest I found interesting were the “Hot Toys Figures We Need to See Made” and “Sixth Scale Figures Upgrades...”

I rarely upgrade my figures, but I have bought new iterations of characters I’ve liked (but that doesn’t mean I get rid of the original one). The number of times I read posts by collectors who buy every new iteration and sell the earlier is alarming to me, and seems like someone with either a compulsion or just another bandwagon jumper.

I agree on many of the figures that need to get made, like Lando, Indy (done right for a change), Returns Catwoman and Mantis. Flash from the TV show — no thanks.

I agree, although the "Hot Toys Figures We Need to See Made" article glosses over some very good quality third-party products -- Flash from the TV show being a case in point. And Michelle Pfeiffer as cat woman, I suppose. Apart from some Stormtroopers and the like, the only new iteration of a character made by HT that I have allowed myself to purchase is the second Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy. That said, I have "reconstituted" some new iterations -- for example some of the later Thors or Lukes -- picking up the most relevant pieces and bashing them into what the character is supposed to look like. But collecting every single new iteration as a complete set seems an excessive expense to me, even if they were lines I were interested in. Of course that is not what HT or a reseller wants to hear... Smile

I agree about third party figures, as well. The Cable/Brolin figure that came out recently looks fantastic (as good as anything HT can do), so I see no need to see something like that done for an extra $100-150 when I already have him. And, yeah, TV Flash has already been done fairly decently. I've seen some of the bootleg Catwoman figures, and they aren't bad. I think if anything, they need a better female body to make them look more like Pfeiffer (sure she was skinny, but the overall effect of some of the bootlegs is she looks like a stick figure -- that might be due to the material used for the outfit, or it could be a combination -- but either way, not even reasonable hips).

Buying extra parts for figures is something I can get behind, as well. I bought Sideshow's Maul figure as an example, but it didn't come with a robe (so I got one loose on the Bay), and it definitely adds to the character (especially being able to have the hood over his head for that mysterious look). But I don't normally see any point in getting an entirely new figure just because it comes with an extra bauble or two. I've never been a completist in the regard of buying an entire line. I couldn't even imagine trying to get every single new figure from an Marvel movie -- that just seems insane to me (like buying every single IM armour -- one is sufficient).
