toycoin hatsune miku 500x287 Volkss Moekore Plus & Charagumin kits now available for pre order online through Singapores ToyCoin

Volks’s Moekore Plus PVCs and Charagumin colour resin (i.e. pre-painted) garage kits are some of the most exclusive figures around – it can be really hard to get your hands on one.

But thanks to a collaboration between Volks and Singapore’s ToyCoin, now there is an easier – and cheaper – way to pre-order Volks pieces.

 

Save on proxy shopping fee

Most of the major import stores (even the online ones) do not typically carry Moekore Plus and Charagumin kits as Volks has traditionally not worked with overseas partners. And so for collectors the solution thus far has usually been to order them from Japan-only sites, and use proxy shopping services to ship them over to where you live – so that’s full retail price for the figure, plus shipping from Japan to where you are, plus the proxy shopping service’s surcharge.

While we know that for many of you collectors out there, affordability is really not the issue when it comes to these highly sough-after figures (availability is the problem), what if you could save on the shipping and proxy shopping surcharge, and just pay more or less what you’d pay for if you were buying from a Japanese retailer?

ToyCoin ships internationally

If you reside in Singapore, saving on proxy shopping fees is one advantage that ToyCoin is offering.

But if you do not live in Singapore, ToyCoin ships internationally as well. You’d have to bear the shopping costs, of course, but it could still work out to be cheaper than a proxy shopping service.

As a bonus, ToyCoin gets its own allotment of stocks from Volks, so it may be easier to secure a particularly popular model from them than your usual Japanese online shopping sites.

At the moment, apart from current Moekore Plus PVCs, ToyCoin are also doing pre-orders for older figures that were initially released years ago.

You can find the full selection over at ToyCoin’s site here. Use the handy searchbox if there’s something in particular you’re looking for.
