January 2019: 9 Years on MFC, Plans Changing again.Berichten • January 2019: 9 Years on MFC, Plans Changing again.

    Im still here and actively collecting (8 years of MFC, several years collecting before MFC) but I have scaled down the amount of figures that I buy due to various reasons:

    1) I had a bunch of figures stacked on top of each other in a big mountain of figure boxes in a storage room in my house due to lack of display space but I had a water leak that caused the storage room to spread water all over the floor of that room and on some of the walls, in the process some of my figure boxes got soaked and warped (the ones in the bottom that got wet) and some of my posters from Japan were ruined from water stains (those posters are no longer for sale too :( ). When I was moving the figure boxes from the big pile where I had them all stacked on top of each other I noticed that some of the figures that I had stacked vertically like ITEM #568 got damaged from vertical stacking partly because of the weight of other figure boxes on top of it + the heat in Florida (even though I always had a ceiling fan running in that room and A/C in the house) some of the hair on Sakura's head broke off because it rubbed up against the blister package (not enough space between the front of the blister package and her face), I also discovered a few other figures that had paint defects on them that I didnt notice before because I had never really opened the figure boxes since I had them stored.

    2) After the whole incident with the water leak and the damage I decided to take all the figures that I had not on display to a climate controlled storage facility for better protection until I move into a new house, I packed them up in Extra Large Home Depot moving boxes and took them to a Climate Controlled Public Storage unit that I rent for around $95 a month

    3) After that experience of a large part of my collection getting damaged due to a water leak it made me feel that adding too many things to my collection without being able to enjoy them due to lack of display space was kind of a waste of money because alot of things got damaged (mostly posters and 2-3 figures) that I never got to even enjoy displaying before they got damaged.

    4) Alot of changes have been happening at work over the last few years and I will be switching jobs soon because the company I work for has been constantly trying to cut costs and reduce employee incentives each year they cut a little bit more and demand more from employees so I havent been happy working there for a long time but recently they started getting so strict that many people have left even people I started with at this job 6 years ago.

    I didn't realise you were here so long... I have you beat, but I'm definitely not anywhere near as well known, at least in the present time. And it's true, a lot of the really memorable and active VIBs from back in the day haven't logged in a long while, but there are some who have. (Actually a little more than I expected...)

    CaptainZ (12 dag(en) geleden) #48149505I just got the Banpresto Musashi and for the price she's great, so much better than what phat is doing (fuck phat).
    TBH the collection is the only thing keeping me sane too, makes me laugh whenever people tell me "why do you buy plastic women" or "don't you have enough sex dolls". 2018 was one horrible year for me as well.



    I like Musashi a lot, love her character design and outfit so she's one I want to get as many figures of that I can but that crazy priced Phat figure is something I'll try to get when it's on sale.

    I know that the best thing one can always say if people laugh at you for collecting these figures is "Hey, at least it's not drugs right?" 2019 is starting off rough but with the changes that are coming I can make sure the hobby continues while making sure I enjoy it and can appreciate what I have more this year.
