    Sarah Zhang's eYou Collection store (signing up gives discounts)

    Facebook group TF-Fans

    ebay store

    i thought i'd start this thread since kaszal asked about it on the FT10 Phoenix thread. ive bought a bunch of things from Sarah through the eYou Collection store and through facebook before she started the eYou Collection store website and i have had only positive experiences buying from her the entire time.

    if there are shipping costs, its usually insignificant no matter where you are in the world (which is awesome when you are buying from Australia) compared to websites like BBTS, TF Source and Robotoy Base etc, which add dubious shipping costs just because the item destination is not somewhere within the USA or Canada.

    i thought i'd drop some photos of a few of my purchases, showing the insane amount of protective packaging, some of the items boxes and the figures...

    anyone else buying from eYou Collection? i hear theres a sale on at the moment.

    no, never heard of this store, but I did bought from her ebay store before.

    Edited: I checked the store, the price seems not as good as showz or Baba's store. I will stick with the latter two.
    But thanks for showing this store!

    thats true, tho ive found that those stores can sell out of something pretty quick while eYou Collection might still have a few in stock, i got my Maketoys Visualizers and Yes Model Seekers by just asking her when they were sold out everywhere else. also that Grimlock was only $150 while those other stores are selling it for $180

    I like the way the first two packages are wrapped. Gives that throw-back '80s vibe.

    Not a fan of stores that mark up products just because they're hard to find. Some of the items have a $100+ mark up. The first time I heard her name a lot was in a facebook group that I was told was run by resellers.

    Ebay:
    Some of these retailers are getting stock from the open market, not direct from the manufacturer so they aren't necessarily simply marking them up due to them being hard to find but rather the fact that they themselves are paying more to procure them...

    that is my understanding also, she has explained as much when she listed FT Phoenix a few months back.

    i havnt paid $100+ mark up for anything ive bought from her, and i believe the DX9 Gabriel was cheapest on her store at the time i purchased it. i know now that BBTS were selling it for a great price, if i were to have bought it through them, they would have added $100 to ship to Australia, eYou Collection shipping cost was just under $20 and arrived in 7 days time, the fastest delivery ive had from anyone that wasnt sending from within Australia.
