A new month and after having a very busy February my plans are to do nothing at all with collecting this month.


No Pre-Orders to deal with this month and only 1 preorder next month after that there is 2 months of no preoders to deal with then a few things in June and July so I'm at the point where there is no reason to keep doing this every month so No Spend Months ahead.

Added in a lot of figures this past month, and as this month starts the collection is heading towards 340 figures/items in size so after snagging a lot of great deals and adding a few more figures to the Fate and Gundam collection it's time to relax since I am tired of waiting for things and had to file 1 item not received case with ebay this month and currently waiting for ITEM #157334 and ITEM #156846 to get in and that's it for adding new things to the collection because I have no space for new items.

Working on appreciating what's here the next few months might work on making photos of everything that is here since there are a few figures I could review but haven't felt like doing that since I'm focused on keeping myself sane so with everything that is here I don't feel a need to add anything right now after adding more than I expected too in February.

I'm glad to have picked up Nitocris since she was worth getting to me after debating on this one for a few weeks and looking at the recent additons to the Fate collection for the last half of February there were some nice additions to the collection.

Gilgamesh and Astolfo's figures are great and Nitocris looks wonderful she goes great with the other dark skinned characters in my collection.


Getting the Battle Scarred Ez-8 has me wanting a few more Battle Scarred figures but it's reminding me to get to building the HG Kits that are here.

I love the level of detail on this figure it's amazing.

Currently displaying a few figures on the desk is part of how I'm getting focused on doing a few other things since I want to replay Xenosaga and moving T-elos over to this part of the desk should motivate me to getting to doing that, the Gundam Fix Figuration Strike Gundam is one of the best figures picked up last month and the old Arch Enemy Strike is an amazing figure too so I love that these remind me of why I became a Anime figure collector in the first place.

Putting figures on preorder for later in the year has helped to motivate me to not do any spending over the next few months, with only a few things to deal with in a couple of months by the time those are released a considerable amount of money will have been saved up so I'm satisfied with what's here and anything that I currently want can wait.



Managed to find space for this month's collection additions on the main shelf and after filling up all the shelf space I'm back to not wanting to add anything to the collection for a while.

Done enough with collecting over the past few months to where I'm tired of it so this is a perfect time for a lengthy rest period from it.

marcourielRL015 maand(en) geleden#76106856That's too bad, however, I wouldn't recommend to just leave your pre-orders unpaid. You should contact Amiami, explain your financial situation and apologize. Maybe they will have mercy and let you return after a suspension. Good Luck.

Thanks for the concern. :) I managed to somehow pay last month's orders and not break the bank, and my remaining pre-orders right now aren't yet in stock, so it'll be easier for them to fill the slots up. The only problem is I'm cancelling maybe 50 orders (I had WAY more disposable income when I first ordered). I've been a good customer up until this point and a member for 9 years, so I'd like to think they'd be lenient, but 50 will really be putting them out even if it's spread out over 10 months. I'm not expecting them to cut me much slack, but I'd like to keep shopping there after I get back on my feet. I only hope they've grown enough since I joined that 50 cancelled orders is nothing. If they even just give me probation and let me still be a member, that'd be great.

This month's loot started off with some exclusive Danmachi items I won at Yahoo Auctions along with some My Hero Academia Shikishis. I'll take some pictures later. Hopefully my BOTW Zelda Nendoroid should be delivered soon. That will pretty much be it for my March loot.

No spend month only lasted for a month. And the Mandarake alert got me. I can’t resist the tapestries. I waited for a week before finally pulling the trigger. I has been working hard so I give in...

Mandarake sent my packages by two SAL small packages so I am happy.

SebastianLover5 maand(en) geleden#76087170I'll be getting my February orders in this month since I always pick SAL. ITEM #604000, ITEM #645867, ITEM #13698, and Apex's Sakura Yae will be coming in soon as well as this from TOM: ITEM #603997. I also managed to snag some grails: Hobby Max's Springfield and Wa2k (both not on mfc).
As for buying figures, I have to put that to an end for a while. I'm leaning towards canceling all my remaining pre-orders with AmiAmi which is a shame because I'll probably be banned for it, but I can't afford it anymore. I thought I could push through, but I'm barely surviving these days. Plus if the market really tanks it'll be a prime time to invest so I'll need some extra money.

ITEM #843201 should be arriving this month. I'm really excited for her. Already got a few mangas, but that's the only figure for march.

Only got 1 other preorder, but there's a hand full of figures I'm interested in preordering soon.

I'm getting ITEM #236133 this month.
I have 14 pre-orders for the rest of 2020, though I'm not sure how many would actually release this year given that the covid outbreak is getting worse...

I've recently gotten into Kimetsu no Yaiba and fell absolutely in love with mah boi Tanjiro, so I'm looking to get decked out in merch related to him. XD Ordered list here, pretty much all Tanjiro-related (Suga is currently in the mail and is technically part of my February acquisitions). I'm not really looking to build a shrine just yet, though at this point I'm pretty sure I will be probably sometime later in the year, but I want it to be a meaningful shrine filled with goods I absolutely love and not just goods that I want to get for the sake of filling up space.

This year my focus will be on collecting manga, though not just for the sake of collecting - manga that I absolutely love and follow, and would love to have as part of my collection. Aside from that, I'm also looking into redecorating my room and pretty much flipping it completely (like, we're talking major redecoration here, complete with changing furniture and stuff), so I'm also setting aside my money that could have otherwise gone into figures. I figured (haha pun) that I should also invest in the actual space because I have all of these wonderful figures and merch but if they're not displayed prettily, I don't see what the point of amassing all of them is. TvT My room right now looks like a convoluted mess, so I want my collection to mesh and blend in with the rest of my decor seamlessly, so I'll be working on that.

I have May and July-December as my no spend months so far in terms of figures, but again I do plan on putting that money into redecoration / possible Tanjiro shrine / manga. I only have 3 figures (4 if you don't count the YoI scales as a set) for the rest of the year left and that's it figure-wise for me. Though I do plan on hunting down Tanjiro's Koto scale when he releases so that's technically 4.

TyjosAzari5 maand(en) geleden#76086098I'm trying to avoid the news since that's driving me insane these days and making it hard to concentrate on the hobby plus other issues it has me working on finding oood ways to focus my mind on things that are here and after watching the turmoil in the market and the frightening news about the coronavirus...
Worry not, looks the central bank found the cure for COVID-19 (Dow closed +1300pts, largest pts gain in history). You'd think a rate cut could cure cancer!

Two figures, one artbook, and some domestic media items.

Figures:
ITEM #740091 I like baseball, and I regretted not preordering this back in December, so I figured I should get it now.

ITEM #129047 I'd had my eye on this figure for a while, and I found one dirt cheap (1000 yen) on AmiAmi, so this was a throw-in with this month's order.

Artbook:
ITEM #886512 I really like Anmi's work - so many pretty illustrations.

Media:

I also picked up a couple new-ish volumes of domestic manga, including the latest volume of How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? ENTRY #180715 and a series on disc that I was shocked to see get a North American physical release, Tenshi no 3P! ENTRY #119570
