Hi all! I've always been an avid collector. My dad brought home my very first Transformer, Mirage, when I was a wee lad back in the mid 80's and I've had toy collecting fever ever since. It was a great time to grow up around toys... Transformers, Spider-Man, Star Wars, He-Man, GI Joe, MASK, and so many other terrific toy lines to further fuel my habit. I dabbled in Battle Beasts and MUSCLE men, I enjoyed the completionist aspect of those, and I must say my Spider-Man and TMNT collections were very impressive ;) However, over time I began to move toward collecting fewer, but higher quality figures.

I am a big comiquette and statue collector and I eventually began crossing over to PVC figures, specifically anime and manga character figures, and haven't looked back. I had a lull for a few years as I was moving, getting married, etc. etc., but my lovely wife has been very patient with the resurgence of my collecting :) We have a baby boy at home now and it has really amped up my collecting. I want to create an imaginarium for the little guy in the near future, filled with great toys, collectible figures, comics, you name it. He's been my inspiration to get back on the horse and collect like crazy! Wish me luck :)

Thank you for the friend request. And double thank you for Suzaku! When I first started collecting I never thought I'd pay so much for a figure, but he's worth it.

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1184806That's cool, what all did you get? I didn't request the extra parts, it didn't occur to me to do so since the cloudy gem was the only thing off with my figure. Darn it, now I feel like I'm missing out!

Do you contact GSC to get them?

It came with extra shovel/microphone pieces, hair joints, and the bow. I didn't have to request it, they automatically sent it to everyone that ordered from them. Did you order directly from GSC? They could already have been sent to you.

Did you get the extra parts for your Snow Miku? Mine just arrived and it includes a non-cloudy gem. Not that I minded it, but it's nice to have both. :)

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1157767Yikes, I hear ya. My wallet is looking at the rest of the year and questioning my ability to restrain myself. A lot of orders... I share your space concerns as well, the display and closet space available to me for this hobby are rapidly shrinking. I may have to *gulp* use the garage or basement to store things :( I'd feel terrible for those wonderful figures, but it may be necessary.

Item #98872 arrived yesterday. He is terrific! One of the best Nendos in my collection, hands down. The eggplant rodeo pose cracks me up :) Anything out of your recent additions stand out above the others?

D: At least you have a basement! I do not... XD I have to somehow find room in my already-packed-closet. I do have an attic, but... the attic is very hot during summer. I don't know if it's going to harm my figures in any way... I'll have to moderate the temperature next summer. Good news is, it's only hot 1/4 of the year ^^;;
I think I may even have to start selling figures. In which I have no experience in...

Your linky is broken, but I figured you're talking about Gakupo 8D !
I did not order him for some reason =x But hey, someone else is enjoying him x1000 times than I am! XD

Currently, I'm head over heels over this figure: ITEM #98864
She's the only bikini figure I have (I usually don't like swimsuit figures), so she stands out. Downside? She's kind of out of place >__<;;
Her sculpt is great and is pretty HQ. Plus, I have an emotional attachment to the character so it's all good xD Very charming figure...

I also have a lot of highly anticipate figures in my Orders list hehe. Half of them o_o''
I can't wait til they arrive >__<

How about ya?

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1157769Gakupo is amazing! It was so much fun playing with all of his variations, almost too difficult to settle on one. I went with the eggplant riding and fan. So funny. Yeah, Gumi looks just as great, they're getting top notch Nendos out of the Vocaloid stable :)
I had a hard time settling on one too. I haven't really settled on anything, I'm sure I'll be changing him around a lot. I'm kinda worried about the eggplant holding his weight!

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1154116Hi there! How's the Shizuo working out for you? I finally got around to placing him out with Celty and Izaya. Couldn't be happier with them :)

I can't unbox and display my collection where I'm staying right now, but I have them all next to one another in their boxes! They're all so lovely. I'm nervous about Shizuo's cigarettes though. When I finally do get to display my collection again, I'm sure I'll manage to lose one or both trying to fit them in his hand.

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1154096Hey there! I saw you obtained your Snow Miku, hopefully you didn't have any of the quality issues that were rampant with the figure. I was fortunate enough to receive one with no issues, save for the cloudy gem.

How's your collecting going? :)

Mine had the cloudy gem too, and so did a friend's, but that's the only issue. I was a little paranoid opening her, but luckily it turned out okay! I actually kinda like how the cloudy gem looks.

I haven't received anything else lately, but the Cheerleader Miku statue did just recently ship. :) How is your collecting going?

Hey there! Welcome back, it seems \o/
My collecting has been going very smoothly :D There's not much more I need to get off the aftermarket and even though I've been watching a lot of anime, no figures have been catching my eye ridiculously because I love a character haha. I can't believe I'm so close to 150 already, it doesn't feel like I should have that many :P
I think a Kino reissue is getting closer! Well, at least I hope so! I know a few people who really want Kino :P How about you? Much more to aim for?

DasFrog (6 jaar geleden) #1154092Hi Katto! I was pulled away from visiting the site for a while and am trying to get back in the swing of things :) I was reading your blog post and must say I am "so" close to being satisfied and caught up. I blame Kino!

Hows your collecting going?
