Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Figure orders so far

With my changing over from HLJ to Kid Nemo being my major supplier, I’ve been making a lot more pre-orders lately.

I Have so far a total of 7 figures per-ordered. I must also say i’m doing quite well with my rule of only 3 figures a month. So far i have had no figures for April, and i have none pre-ordered for May. Lately there aren’t as many figures that scream out “OMG IF YOU DON’T BUY ME NOW YOU’LL REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF OF LIFE!!” The figures i do however have on pre-order are the few that totally scream out to me.

Alter 1/8 Fate Testarossa

I must admit this does scream at me to own her, I’m just glad that they are re-releasing Alter Fate, i was extremely worried about not getting my hands on one.

Enterbrain 1/7 Yoko

Thank heaven for Kid Nemo, not only am i going to get Yoko for cheaper, she’s pushed back till June for them so i don’t have to worry about paying for her any time soon. While i’m super excited about Yoko, i’m not excited about her price.

Good Smile Company 1/8 Hayase Mitsuki

I know some people hated Mitsuki, but i liked her as a character. While stealing you’re best friend’s man is a girl taboo. If she’s in a coma then he’s up for grabs in my book…

Good Smile Company 1/8 Takamachi Nanoha Training Team Uniform

Still haven’t seen Strikers, but like the face and pose on this Nanoha figure, plus i know i’d regret not getting her in the end. I still have her ordered with HLJ but i might change it to Kid Nemo later.

Jun Planning 1/8 Katsura Hinagiku

At least Kid Nemo has her up for pre-order, HLJ is surely slipping more and more. They still don’t’ have her up for pre-order…

Max Factory 1/8 Miki Hoshii Awaking Ver. and Max Factory 1/8 Miki Hoshii Expectation Ver. (October)

While i haven’t played Idolmaster, or even finished the anime, i love the design on these two figures. Love the glittery coats they have on, and the pose is awesome. While the price is steap, i know i had to have these two!

It’s amazing at the amount of money i save not buying figures. With the Money i’m saving from not getting figures for May and April, I’ve been able to pay off some credit card bills, and get shelves for my figures. But then it’s quite hard not to impulse shop, with no figures anytime soon i keep looking at ebay and figure bargin at Hobby Search. I don’t see anything i need or really can’t live without but it’s hard not to look knowing i have a bit of extra moneys on hand. But i am loving seeing the amount of my credit card debt drop faster.

    stumbled upon your blog from 4chan believe it or not. I am the dude that owns that Max Factory Naru which you offered to buy ^^;; Not for sale though >< Enjoy the huge box that she comes in when you get her.

    Here are some pics of that….I manage to superglue her head back on and stuff so shes all fine and dandy now.


    See ya around

    Please delete my previous comment as it was incomplete ><

    Some great preorders that you got there. Fate Testarossa is must for any fig collector. However, because of her cape she is quite large and will probably take up half a shelf believe it or not. The box that she comes is quite huge. See my photobucket that i listed as website for pics of my collection.

    I don’t know how long you’ve been in the figure collecting business but you have amassed quite a collection. Eventually i think all collectors reach a point where they start reducing their purchases due to space limitations or money and become more selective in their purchases. I use to collect one fig a month but now maybe 5 a year at best. Anyways i wish you the best and look forward to more of your collection.

    See ya ^^

    Only getting one of the figures you’ve listed (Nanoha!!! xD), but then again, I’m getting a whole lot of others which you’ve probably deemed not worthy, and if I actually think rationally about it, you’d probably be right too ^^;

    If I had the presence of mind like you do, I’d probably be saving lots. Good luck with the struggles of impulse shopping, I know I fail miserably even at that aspect as well -_-;

    @anon: it is true how once you’ve amassed a certain amount of figures for your collection you start to slow down a bit. Last year was good for me in terms of my income, so my figure collection grew quite rapidly. This yer it’s been tough with the gas prices, and how the economy is doing i can’t spend as much and i need to focus more moeny on bills instead of figures. 🙁

    I also have a policy of only getting fig rues from series i know and like. I broke my rule with buying the Max Factory Fauna, but i didn’t regret it. and i have a feeling if i don’t get those two idolmaster figures i’ll regret it later. I’m the worst impulse shopper in the world, if i have money in my pocket it burns until i spend it! I try and only carry my debit card and leave my credit cards at home in case i stumble across any figures that i don’t already own. It’s helped me save so much money and no regret purchases. If you look at my figures page you’ll notice a section of sold figures, those were some bad impulse buys of mine 🙁

    Yay Enterbrain’s Yoko. Though it is one that looks least like her art, it seems to be the best in terms of artwork and sculpting. Hopefully Enterbrain does not disappoint, got her on preorder too.

    Will probably preorder Hayase as well when she gets up for preorder in a local store here. Two good choices there, DQ.

    Getting 2 figures u listed DQ.
    I have one strict rule only, purchase the figures from the series which i love and/or a particular character from the series that is my favourite. Considering it’s a strict rule, sticking to it will always be hard because usually there will be times where I will find a bargain on a semi character or from a so-so series that i like but the figure itself its too good to pass by on that price.

    I knew I was in trouble when i spent AUD$800+ on figures on Feb. alone. It made me cancel about 3 figures in which I was gonna get in the next 2-3 months. >_<
