Realistic miniatures & where to find themRealistic miniatures & where to find them

UnhappyThiefUnhappyThief5 månader sedanDiary
Hello,

Recently I've noticed that I am getting more and more interested in collecting realistic miniatures.

Thought I'd share some of my personal favorite lines of high quality realistic miniatures.

First off, I'd like to clarify- I am mostly interested in realistic miniatures scaled 1\6 - 1\12.
Anything bigger is too big, I'd settle for the real thing and anything smaller is too small for my fat grabby fingers.

- Starting with the obvious choice - The most known Japanese company for making miniatures is Re ment(and that is probably because you can get unique miniatures of high quality, for a more than affordable price). They have a certain line which solely consists of realistic miniatures, and is called "Petit Sample Series" I highly recommend it--> browse.v4.php?k... .

- From time to time - you might be able to find amazing realistic miniature gacha/eugene sets - for example - the Nintendo history collection, is just phenomenal, not onlybecause of the great attention to details and paint job, but the pricing too, no wonder it has gotten so expensive just a short time after being released--> ITEM #115401 ENTRY #38436

- This line - "Design Interior Collection" {by the company Reac Japan) - I adore. yes, miniature chairs are a necessity now - you must have them, even though they seem to cost more than a brand new perfectly functional Ikea chairs. I understand that fact now, loud and clear. ENTRY #55374

- Love these 1/12 model Kits of game arcades by the company Wave --> ITEM #192505 ENTRY #34222 , they're quite awsome, gotta admit.

- Lastly , another line of 1/12 miniatures, I especially enjoy the miniature gachapon machines ITEM #139959, though the whole line is cool ENTRY #44075

What is your opinion of realistic miniatures? Are they too boring for you?
Do you have any recommendations of a line of realistic miniatures or a company that makes them, preferably similar to my refrences.
THANKS FOR READING!

UnhappyThief (5 månader sedan) #35914947Mexican miniatures ? Sounds exciting , got any pictures ?
Also, congrats on getting that re ment set, is surely one of the better ones.
Ughhh the idea of building a dollhouse from scratch has always sounded charming to me! Hopefully I can do that too one day! (I’m quite horrible with diying though)


Sorry for the big delay! busy busy life, but I did take some pictures since that day, heh.

Some eggs, bread, plates, and jugs/vases.
These are the more realistic-lookin' ones imo, but there doesn't seem to be a scale to them. Ahh, and I just realized I included nothing for size reference. The metal plates are probably a little bigger than a thumbnail, if that helps.
I'm particularly fond of the blue vases because I like that design style! The paint job seems tiny and intricate too; a little less so on the other plates.
The round things on the left are eggs, lol. Like i said, no scale. ;w;

Bonus "detail" shot without the bread!

This is the other stuff I have. The mugs are more rough, not sure why (the small ones make more sense since this is all handmade).
Some more food; a sope, fruit, more bread. But I thought it looked a little less "real". Kept the metal plates there just to put stuff on. I like the look of the tortillas in the picture, but in actuality they're too puffy to look like the real thing.
Looking at them though, the baskets look fine. Just sticking out a little bit where the straw ends, maybe, but that can always be cut off.

And a bonus final picture! Because this is, of course, sitting near my miniature things. You can probably find these small shells at about any touristy beach spot, and I only thought of this while digging through my stuff but their scale is probably good for small figures or dolls (maybe not the clam shells; mostly the smaller snail shells).

Valestein3 Here with you to Knight
Ohhh, thanks for these!

While I dont intend to proactively collect them, I want a couple because I'm drafting some ideas for comic strip styles pictures.

It'd look a little plain if I just had a simple background, and I really dont want to take the Toy Stort route of using real life objects for my figures to use.

UnhappyThief (5 månader sedan) #35914907I feel like Etsy is inflating prices, most things on Etsy (not including handmade/retro items) you can find on Chinese online shops such as Aliexpress for real cheap prices, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

oh i meant shops that custom make them! for example, i want a 1/6 pizza slice for my most recent doll, but i specifically want margherita pizza, and i cant find it any where. i order a custom made margherita mini slice on etsy. so i go to etsy for my really specific needs.

Id love to collect more miniatures, preffrably the 1/12 kind, altho i really want the ITEM #254796 of the ENTRY #72936 but their so damn hard to find! i only find PS1s forsale. and i really want to use my own screenshots from my ps4!
id also go for the nintendo history if possible, but im more keen looking for modern consoles.. hoping a new console gacha appears or re-releases.

I do have some miniatures, both re-ment and just random ones bought.

I love miniatures, but don't have too many. I would definitely like to get more in the future, especially Japanese themed. I recently managed to get my hands on all three of the Sailor Moon Re-Ment sets, I was pretty happy as the senshi school days set (not sure if that's the exact name, but it's something along those lines) has kind of gotten rare. I also got a cute little set recently off HLJ on sale...I guess it's kind of a diorama with a cat? Definitely mini-sized but I'm not sure of the scale (hasn't arrived yet). I love those chairs! Another member kindly let us know there was a re-release of some of them a few months ago, so I picked up two. They were really popular and sold out fast on all the usual sites. I'd like to get some gashapon sets sometime, they seem like great value for money. I think there's at least one art set? I'd like to get that for my Sailor Neptune S.H. Figuarts.

SmileyWaffle (5 månader sedan) #35911624Ooh that would be cool! And it would be for the nendoroids, Yotsuba Revoltech, and S.H. Figuarts Thomas. Its a weird combination haha

A peculiar bunch indeed. Good luck with your search!

Marsharoo (5 månader sedan) #35912861Haha, I love miniatures but I only know about re-ment. I recently grabbed the full Seishun Days box during eBay's Father's Day sale.
I grew up traveling to Mexico and some city centers have stands selling realistic (Mexican) miniature kitchen tools so I kinda got started on that, but I dunno where one would get those online without probably finding inflated prices, not to mention they might look kinda odd with figures. ;;
The dream is to just... have a dollhouse sometime.
