    If we are keeping a Chinese vinyl section just rename it "Image Comics circa 1994" or "Superfestival Invaders"

    How does this option sound?

    Japan Toys - Artists and companies from Japan
    Americans and Other Western Gaijin - Artists and companies from western countries (US / Europe / Australia / etc.)
    Asian Toys - Artists and companies from non-Japan eastern countries / areas (China / Taiwan / Hong Kong / etc.)

    These would all be where the artists are from, not where the vinyl is pulled. All of Paul Kaiju's toys would be in the Gaijin Toys section. All of Secret Base's toys would be in the Japan Toys section. Tan, Toysbian, Kearjun - These would all be in the Asian Toys section. Then we can add tags to those threads corresponding to where the vinyl is pulled if people want that information.

    The original idea behind this forum was for vinyl being pulled outside of Japan, but I think we're all starting to realize that it would be very disorganized to try to sort everything by country of manufacture.

    My vote is still for "The Wall and Beyond" ;)
    But anything is better than just "China Cabinet." We need a place for Hong Kong and all the other countries that are getting into sofubi.

    It should definitely be the makers homebase as they may utilize other factories one day. Case in point Paul's stuff is in made in Japan but the big Mockbat is made in China by Unbox and also Skattum's new dudes.

    Okay it's changed. Now someone give me a list of threads that should be here. Reminder: Artists and companies from non-Japanese Asian countries / areas. The vinyl doesn't have to be pulled outside of Japan, the artists just need to be from outside Japan and still in Asia.

    There are several companies I plan on making threads for that will be in this section.

    5233toys, Mechnoiz, bluemoontoy, toysbian, kuidaore, roooockyy, Don't cry in the morning.
    etc
    I'll do my best to research their geographical locations before posting.

    I liked the name "China Cabinet" It had that jouissance SB is so well known for. Then again, putting tons of threads here that surround the topic is quite in line with the Qin move.

    As much as I like other threads getting in here, I need to get some more chinese vinyl to showcase here.

    I'm trying to understand why are the Kasing Lung Astronauts so expensive? Made in China, soft vinyl and in a range of different colour variants. Just seem so hard to get and also very expensive!
