All of my figures are back at home... so I can't take any pics of them. The only pic that I managed to already have is my MGS2 Enemy Lego Figure >_>

My Metal Gear Solid 2 Enemy Lego on a toy toilet. I like to think of it as Johnny Sasaki >_>

Pic from internet.
But iirc, I have the cleric, red mage, Pleinair, female brawler, and rogue I think.

Does gunpla count?
I have an incomplete badass Master Grade Gundam RX-79g.
I still needa spray paint the body armor and some other stuff :|

Went to an anime convention over the weekend and started collecting like all the cool people do. Bought a Sora no Woto Kureha figure and got Tsukuyomi-sensei out of a box. Was hoping to start out with Angel Beats! nendo set 2 though, but oh well.

Crappy phone picture, go! Spoiler'd for being unnecessarily huge!


What I want:

Might be able to order it on the 23rd when I give my mom my progress report since she said once she saw my grades she'd buy. BUT MY GRADES, OH GOD, MIGHT HAVE REVERSE EFFECT. DILEMMA DILEMMA DILEMMA.

Only have Gunplas. Figures are too damn expensive without the satisfaction of building them.

Naps 11-19-2010 01:52 PM

Lots and lots of gunpla. Just ordered Quanta today :V

Right now I have a bunch of figs in my room and at my parent's house. No camera though. =(

No, but I think my friend got that set. I only wanted Kanade and Yui.

Yeah, same here. Mainly the latter, obv.
Only reason I would get set 1 is for Yusa and Shiina, simply because Yusa needs screentime and Shiina because she's just there.

SlowBro 11-20-2010 05:39 PM

What do you do with figures exactly? Play house or tonka trucks? Elaborate tea parties? vroom vroom ZAP pew pew bang etc?

I'm genuinely interested.

Nihil679 11-20-2010 05:41 PM

Collect for the pleasure of just collecting.
Unless you get gunpla or paint/build ones. Then it's collect for the pleasure of finishing.

Shugi 11-20-2010 09:25 PM

Just have them sitting on your desk for aesthetics that make you feel good. moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe moe

Why do you buy paintings? Pretty much same reason.

This just reminded me of the funniest story about my friend and his figs. My friend collects a lot. He has over 50+ in his small room... by small, damn his room feels like the closet in my apartment. Basically one day I was talking to him on msn. His mom walks in, "You play with Dolls or something?" and walks out.

I intend to collect nendos.

So I can make an army of them. : 3

Dani 11-21-2010 08:32 AM

The idea of collecting figurines doesn't appeal to me since then I'd feel super nerdy and like a grown up kid.

Can't help but admire the craftsmanship though. I'd like to try making a figurine for lulz someday out of idk, resin. ;_; It'd be something new to try out at least... and hopefully not as stupidly messy as clay.

Shugi 11-24-2010 05:09 PM

When I received my first Genuine Nendoroid I was very surprised at the craftsmanship. I finally understood why these aren't mass produced... drawing in tiny details does get tedious I suppose. The thing that's most surprising to me is the eyes. They literally look exactly the same as in the Anime/Manga/Drawings online.

OH My angel beats set was shipped. Will have pics when I go home for christmas! =3

Genji 11-30-2010 08:49 AM

I've always been curious about figurines.
I remember from a long time ago that I had a squirtle figurine and thought it was the best thing ever. However, it's been lost through several house movings.

I'd think I want one of Suika and Yukari, though!

Just got a MAX factory BRS figma from my friend for 1333 Yen because he accidentally bought doubles, lol.

Had my eyes on those recently. Was going to get them until my mom started *****ing over my grades.

Hooray, I don't get jackshit now and we just passed up a hell of a sale.

Gaap 12-02-2010 09:23 PM

I have quite a few small figurines in glass (or clear) candy box containers and a few models/big figures in their unopened boxes.

Here are some...

Haruhi in Stripped Bikini
Peppita from Star Ocean 3
Bonus: Defrost Tuna Team pic?
Random moe girl (does anyone know this girl?) and a Jolteon (JP) toy
Valor form Sora from KH (got him cheep, good condition, but no box)

Others I haven't taken a photo yet:
Mao-Chan (all three girls figurines)
"Rein" figurine (comes with candy and she wears a magical-girl outfit with blue top hat..)
Haku (Naruto) figure
Ten-chan, Koboshi, and err.. "I forgot that glasses kid's name" chibi-figure set
KHII Roxas Play-Arts
FFVII: Advent Children Vincent Valentine Play-Arts
BOME's KOS-MOS figure

For UFO-catcher plushies (imported from Japan) :
Rabi~En~Rose
X-Mas Tokyo Mew Mew Plushies (missing Mew Ichigo, and Zakuro looks "chewd" up, ROFL!)

Now WHAT I WANT for X-Mas? I know this may not happen, but still... D: Also, if you are my Secret Santa and willing to burn some bucks, this should help give hints...

Warning: All Jessicas from Umineko!
