Asian SF Distribution


I'm a new collector here and may not have been that experienced but do you guys think it matters who distribute your SF? And especially for those who are Asian SF collectors, which company distributes your SF?

Mine's from Passion, Malaysia I think. They distributed SF through Epoch and then Passion. (This made SF quite expensive I think.)

Thanks! emoticon

Re: Asian SF Distribution


Passion is in charge for distribution in Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia. For Hong Kong and Macau, Paka Toys distributes them. Ban Kee is distributor for the Philippines.

I'm not too sure who is in charge of distribution in Thailand.

For Passion and Paka Toys, they carry the JP, UK and EU range. However, recently in the last two years or so, Epoch has stated they have restricted the amount of new UK items into these markets.

For Ban Kee, they carry mostly the EU range with some JP exclusives that the distributor brings in.

Personally, I am not a big fan of Passion although I do admit they have been bring the new JP items at reasonably fast pace, at least here in Singapore.

Thank you so much for the help. Though I don't see any JP made SF here in Indonesia. Yet.
