    The seller has an MP-36 listed on their profile with reports of a minor "scrash" on the box. Considering how much cheaper it was than Amazon Japan's current price and the fact that it was listed under the "Collectible" section rather than "New" or "Used" had me skeptical as to whether it's actually a KO

    I want to ask, what is the word on Amazon Warehouse Deals. According to a listing, it mentions that the item "is in good condition, only damaged packaging". To those who have tried, are the worth it?

    I've gotten a few warehouse deals. Most of the time the box is just dinged up a bit and the item is fine.

    FYI- as an example, I just got a Funko figure from a warehouse deal, and the actual box was pretty mangled. As Funkos go, that's usually a deal breaker, but I had planned on opening it anyway, so for $6, I won't complain.

    Another thing people may consider - though it's far from perfect - is Camel Camel Camel. You can set price alerts (for a set desired price) via email, and there's also a browser extension that when clicked on an Amazon page gives you a decent (again, not perfect) graph of price histories for that particular item. So you have some decent idea of whether you're getting a good deal or not.

    I mainly only use it when trying to get decent prices for more expensive stuff like PC components and the like (especially GPUs these days... ugh... at least the miners seem happy, but I hope prices come down soon lol) but it might be of use to some here as well.

    It's fairly reliable for plastic toys and the like, but you risk a lot if you try for sophisticated electronic equipment or the like (especially laptops)

    I've gotten some toys where you couldn't even tell it was damaged, even the packaging.

    I dont know abt toys specifically but I have bought a macbook, an android phone, an air fryer all from Warehouse deals and all of them have been great. One time I bought an nvidia graphics card that didnt work but Amazon sent me a brand new one as replacement.

    I had to google air fryer. I had never heard of that appliance before. It sounds cool. I love fry food but it’s always a hassle to clean out the oil from the deep fryer afterwards.

    Air fryers are awesome. They allow you to taste the food and not the grease.

    He's coming back but it may be in June/July. No way of knowing for sure when but he's got another production run. Just keep checking.

    Just got myself a Unite Warriors Computron from a warehouse deal from Amazon JP. Bad news is his head was missing for some reason and had the Perfect Effect version instead. So uhh... Who here wants a UW Computron?

    Just ain't a fan of the Superion repaint head but that's just me. Either way I'll be selling this one on my thread </plug> and buy another one later

    That's kind of an interesting thing to have had happen. Someone must have really wanted that head.
