>@ikuya_koi (some guy involved in the anime) had tweeted a rumor about Konami not securing a factory therefore stalling production on biker girls.

Where to buy second hand:
>eBay/Amazon - only if you hate having too much money. Avoid Latvia.
>Mandarake - search ???? and don't trust listing images (they sometimes get mixed up).
>Yahoo Japan Auctions - same kanji as above, you'll need a proxy, try Yokatta or Noppin.
>Taobao - search ???? and use a proxy, Taobaoring is pretty easy and cheap. Taoboafocus might be faster.
>Amiami occasionally gets some preowned. They tend to sell fast.
>Japtou still has some old stock but their system is unreliable.
>Check the BST, My Figure Collection, and Busou Shinki World for sales.

PAK Metal Gear Solid Meryl: An Honest Review
35 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: MGSmerylreview2.jpg]
There’s been a lot of talk on /toy/ of late about the Play Arts Kai line of action figures. Most of it bad, but some of it good. Lots of the reviews on toy collector sites and on Youtube give glowing reviews of the figures, pointing out their superior paint and sculpt. Meanwhile, the posters on message boards and here on /toy/ lambasted the line as the “action figure line of non collectors”. They point out PAK’s wonky articulation and spotty quality control as evidence for a sub-par line of over-hyped figures.
So who’s telling the truth about this line? I decided that the best way to find out was to invest my hard-earned money in a PAK figure and see for myself. And so I got Metal Gear Solid’s Meryl as a test drive figure.
There will be no howling the anon hive mind mantra that “PAK SUKS”! Nor will there be the slavish fan boy cooing that everything is just “AWESUM SAUCE”! You’ll get my full, unbiased review of the figure, both the good and the bad.
