    Hey, I know there are many other fellow collector enthusiasts, so I decided to create this thread so that fellow users could show off, share or even talk about their figurines and the collecting hobby. They have to be from anime or videogames, so no action figures.


    Figurine/Statue collection Thread!
    Here you could discuss:
    Pre-orders!
    Share your rerelease requests
    Showing off your collection
    Figures that you would like to have
    Comment and Discuss about the Hobby and other users collections
    Sky is the limit, just keep it on topic!


    Rerelease forms for Goodsmile :

    Alright, I'll start posting some of my very first ones that I ever have, perhaps @Blind Weasel may remember these ones.

    reevaluate yourself/10, can't comment on the others cause it's either gay (all male figures are, it's a rule) not a figure, not weeb enough or vidya trash

    here are some of my other acquisitions:


    Also I got this naruto figure just before the manga ended, otherwise I would never have bought it.



    I am still saving for a new cabinet because the old one is too filled with my warhammers. So I am searching for a proper air proof one. I may just get an old coca cola refrigerator without the cooling mechanism. Also the theme of my collection is femme fatale and agile fighters.

    Hi WolfBoy! :radiohead Don't you have just the cutest werewolf avy out there! :iria I actually have several figurines--most of them Naruto (of course). I also have a pair of large figures from part one (I really think they are toys)--Naruto and Sasuke--found them at a flea market years ago. When a Deku figure comes out that I like I'll probably pick that up as well.

    I wanted to have neon noodle but wolfman will have to suffice. I still have more figures that I will be posting these days. I am glad you have been liking them so far.

    It would have to be between a saber that I have yet to post and Kiani from fathom, which I will post better pics of her tomorrow. I think.
    I seriously need to get a display air proof cabinet.
    Edit: Also I have been thinking on preordering her but I am not that weeb, she does look pretty cool however. what do you guys think?

    Also I got this figure as a bday gift from a friend many years ago:



    I am not a huge Emma Frost Fan but this was such a nice detail that I just couldnt say no.

    This is half of my collection. The rest of my figures are on the bottom or on my desk. Kind of outdated since I have the Utena blu-ray/rings displayed behind Akko. Bless You Sakura is an amazing centerpiece to my collection.
    Spoiler:




    I have several PO's for next year. Notable PO's are , from Yuru Camp and .

    Whoa! trully a great collection! thank you for sharing it with us! I see you like trigger stuff a lot eh? You should show us the rest sometime when you can or when you feel like. I also like your crystal shelf, is it air proof?

    TBH Right now I am hunting for a specific piece, unfortunately she has sold out completely and the few places that sell her on ebay have blasphemous prices. So I will have to do some proper hunting, that is ofcourse if goodsmile decides to rerelease her soon.

    Thanks and yeah, I really enjoy TRIGGER/GAINAX's work. I'll post more whenever I can haha. It's not completely air proof, so I will occasionally open it up to clean the figures. Garage sales are absolute godsends for display cabinets like this. I think I picked two cabinets for $60.

    Camilla looks really nice, I just wished she had a more interesting base. I wanted Cordelia a few years ago and now she's also up there in price. Heck, most of the Fire Emblem figures are really expensive after market.

    Fuck. I told myself I would stop preordering figures and yet, I just po'd Sayla to go with my Char.

    You could still modify them to be air shut and prevent the pesky dust - figures worst enemy - gettin inside.

    I had to clean once a saber that I had, which was my very first figure, it was a real hassle to clean but she got cleaned.

    Yes, seriously goodsmile should just reprint the statues of fire emblem. I am having a really hard timing trying to find Camilla at a reasonable price.
    Well to be fair that is a reaaally nice looking figure, and I learned the hard way that its not a good idea to let the pre-orders get away.


    Also more of my collection, I got this Deadpool back in the day. It was a big deal when it was first released since he wasnt crazy popular as he is now a days. Which is a shame since what made him unique IMO got a bit lost.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll see if I can modify the case.

    Damn, he looks huge. What's the size of that deadpool?

    Also, when did everyone start collecting figures? I started around 4 years ago. My first figure was a Ryuko Matoi figma.

    You guys are certainly serious collectors! Question for both: How many figures do you own?

    So far I have 32 and 10 more on the way. I've had more in the past, but sold most of them due to space.

    I tell myself every year that I should stop, but wonder fest announcements reel me back in this slippery slope of a hobby.

    Rmemeber getting them its a once in a life time chance, unless you are prepared to pay a more expensive price. Eitherway I finally got a figure that I really wanted thanks to @Kinjin



    Getting her was a huge endavour but in the end I managed to obtain her, the expensive thing was the shipment but her store price was the normal one so it was a good deal in the end I think.
