Damn, I caught the figure fever…

My collection. I'm sure Akihiko isn't complaining.

I never really got into the hobby of PVC figure collecting, mainly because most quality figures are damn expensive and I would have rather bought things I could use and not just display. I don’t know if it’s all the hype surrounding the upcoming Wonder Festival Summer 2009, or just browsing through Hobby Search’ catalog, but I seem to have grown quite fond of those beautiful pieces of plastic. I do have some figures, but my collection is quite pathetic and my shelves are so barren, so now I have dedicated the next couple of dollars I get to increases my figurine collection. They’re expensive, but now I believe it’s well worth it, especially since Hobby Search has this awesome points system going on. So yeah, it’s official, I have succumbed to the ways of figure collecting… and because of this, expect to see more figure posts in this blog too (and less of everything else, harhar).

Out of all the figure categories though, I think the Nendoroids attract me the most. They’re cheap AND they’re cute, so Nendoroid figures get top priority over everything else. :P

    Yeah, it gets pretty addictive, been there done that. I lost count of the monies that I’ve spent on all of those, but then again I think they were all worth it, more or less. I’d want more figs and Nendos too (especially Saber Lily), but… My piggy bank is barren as can be.

    Just mind the occasional shopping sprees that happen on a whim, they can be very lethal to your wallet. ;_;

    I’m immune, haven’t got my first figma. Just getting one once I save up T_T then the rest I will either save up for cons or lock up my wallet.

    I shall join you soon enough, my friend.

    …Once they make a Yui figure, since I vowed to buy one once one that is good enough arises.

    After that, though, I have to wait until I get an actual job before I buy more.

    Welcome to the club. The biggest issue I’ve had with collecting figurines are the outrageous shipping prices which cost a pretty penny. If the shipping came down to maybe $10, I’d take it, but I’ve been paying costs up to $25.

    It’s worth it though since I’ve been quite pleased with my acquisitions. The Haruhi Extravaganza ones have been my favorite to date.

    I thought they had plans to release a Yui figurine or something. I might have to check up on my sources for these things, but I think it exists.
