I haven't read anything against this in the rules and I see that others have done tutorials of this type before, so I guess it's ok, but let me know if it's not and I'll take the post down.
This is my custom eBay search specifically geared towards finding authentic tomy figures. There are some great bootleg exclusion lists for plush and Pokemon merchandise in general on the tutorials list here, but I couldn't find one specific to Tomy figures and I thought a specific search guide in this area would be helpful. It is sort of long, so I placed it under the cut:
so here it is:
1. Click advanced to the right of the search button.
2. Type "Pokemon figures" in the search terms box.
3. To screen out unrelated Pokemon auctions, paste these terms in the word exclusion box
directly below the search terms box:
plush cards card zukan jakks bandai kids pcs gashpon doll
4. Check Title and description.
5. Scroll down until you see the bold heading "sellers." Click the "Only show items from"
check box to enable the fields. MAKE SURE YOU CHOSE "EXCLUDE" from the drop down menu. It
is set to include by default.
6. Paste this exclusion list in the box:

7. Choose "best match" if this is your first search in a long time, or "time: newly listed" if you have recently searched
8. choose 200 in results per page.
If done right, this search will take a 100 page result down to about 10-12 pages.
Let me know if you find this helpfull!
I may have Accidentally included a legitimate seller or two in this list. Sorry if I have. Let me know if I have and I will fix it. I have occasionally screened out legitimate sellers who simply had items I was not interested in since this was originally a personal search list. I have taken those names out, but I may have missed some.
If you have an exclusion list tutorial and want to include mine with it, feel free to do so.
This will not exclude all bootleg sellers, as new ones pop up all the time and I haven't excluded sellers who only occasionally sell bootlegs. You still have to be careful.
This only applies to the Tomy 2 inch figures such as the ones in the Pokemon Monster Collection or Pokemon Battle Figures lines. I have no idea about bootleg plush, cards, or other figure lines, so don't use this list for those, it won't work.
This list only includes bootleggers, not sellers who are simply unreliable.
If you find that new bootleg sellers pop up, all you have to do is paste their name to the end of this list and save it to your computer in a notepad or other text file for future use. Also, feel free to comment with new names.
I have all my figures pictured in my personal journal. There are other members here who have larger collections, but feel free to use my pictures for reference if you want. I have 4 point rotations of each of my figures, so that could be helpful.
