It’s that time of the year again! After feasting on turkey and stuffing, it’s time to feast on figure deals! Check out the links below for today’s and this weekend’s on-line sales events! (If you’re from outside the USA, click here for a quick primer on the Black Friday hullabaloo!)

Here are some places I’ve bought from before:
Robert’s Anime Corner Store: Save 15% off your purchase TODAY ONLY with coupon code BLACKFRIDAY2013. They’ve raised the threshold for free shipping this year; your order of $75 or more (previously $49) gets shipped anywhere in the US for free!
Toylet.net: Their Thanksgiving Sale has been running for a week, but there are still lots of good deals left. No code is necessary, but act fast since there’s no word on when it will end. Save money by selecting Local Pickup if you can!
Hobbyfan.com: Their November Clearance is underway, but no word on when it’ll end, so buy buy buy!
CD Japan: They have a ton of things in their Holiday Clearance Sale — not just figures but also books, CDs, accessories, and more! Theirs is possibly the longest-running sale, ending 11:59PM JST 19 Dec 2013, but supplies are limited!
Toys Logic: Their “sale” has likewise been running for a few days. If you buy two clearance items, you can get another one for free; that means you can almost get to retail price on some of their figures! -_-; They’re also offering a free gift for any in-stock purchases above $10 and you’ll be entered into a random drawing for $50 store credit. Sale ends tomorrow (30 Nov 2013)!
HobbyLink Japan: Everything on their entire site (excluding books and magazines) has been discounted. Now you can almost get pre-order pricing on their figures! 😛 Ends (11:59PM JST 2 Dec 2013).
ABCToy4Me: I’m local to these folks so I’ve never actually ordered on-line from them before; I usually just go to their warehouse and snoop around or pick stuff up during con! They always have awesome prices, so they only have a modest list up for discounts on their website. But you should totally visit them in order to get the best deals!
Figure Haven: This is the only place I haven’t bought from, so do your own due diligence! They’ll give shipping on your order of $150 or more. You probably won’t have any problems hitting that total if you buy anything from their “sale”; I’m only including them here in case they have anything that you desperately need.
I’ve bought from many of these places before (see reviews for some of them here and here)! With the exception of Hobbyfan, which also sells recast resin kits/statues, all of them only sell legit and official merchandise. Many of these “sales” are sales in name only; even on Black Friday, you should definitely shop around. Happy Hunting!
