Figuurit (73)



Lethe; twenties. There’s little I love more than giving my passions shape — be it in graphics, writing or something else — and to see that passion in other people’s creations and collections. Having amassed more than a thousand volumes of manga and a good amount of video games dating back to the PlayStation, collecting isn’t new territory to me. Still, it took a whole while for me to set foot into merch and artbook collecting; lack of funds and information made me not give it any consideration sooner, despite having longed for nothing more than Sailor Moon merchandise as a child.

I bought my first (trading) figure in September 2015, and my first artbook in June 2016, though I consider November 2016 my actual start into merch collecting. Long story short, I slammed down around 140 USD for a Gwendolyn scale, sealing my fate in just a few clicks. My advance into this hobby is largely thanks to my online friends, and I consider sharing this common passion and all the excitement with them the most enjoyable aspect of the hobby by far.

My days as a collector are spent obsessively perusing secondhand markets online, comparing prices national and international, crying over shipping fees, crying some more about the ~60 USD import limit (lest I pay a hefty sum for additional fees), poring over finances multiple times a month, complaining over insubstantial item condition info, spamming friends with all of that and linking them to stuff relevant to their interests while listening to their own sobbing.

When I’m not doing any of that, I’m most likely reading manga, playing video games, or coding and writing on fansites. Depending on when you catch me, I might be typing up a wall of analysis that might just be worth reading, or swooning over otoge boys and driving everyone away with the sheer amount of cheese.

Characters marked as favourites in the sidebar are characters I enjoy browsing merch of — ones fortunate to have merch dedicated to them, at least — rather than overall favourites.

feuilgarde (1 kuukautta sitten) #24281772I missed to say this yesterday, but belated happy birthday!! <3 <3 I hope you had a nice day yesterday. :>
I've been meaning to thank you for your information on your gorgeous Tsubasa volumes hahaha (oh god it's been a month), but then I forgot... Since I already own the published German volumes, I can't justify buying the gorgeous hardcovers you got just for the cover art hahaha, but it really is a feast for the eyes! (It's more about the shipping fee than anything.)
Edit: Wait, I just read the comment below, I think I'm in time?! MFC alerted me yesterday lol. HAVE A SUPER NICE DAY TODAY THEN!!

Awww thank you!! Yes it is today where I live, idk why mfc notified people it was yesterday lol anyway I have all of Tsubasa in italian along with the guides and the first artbook too, but I think of those volumes as something more than just manga! I also discovered that in Japan they have a shipping option for books and printed matter which should be cheaper??

Aw, your weren't going off topic on Wiess's figure page. All the posts there are practically like a German foreign language class now. Thank you so much for the clarification btw! :D

You claim that you aren't a linguist, but I'm somewhat doubtful about that! You seem well informed about the German language to me. :)

feuilgarde (7 kuukautta sitten) #18512899Ah, i didn't realize the anniversary reboot was the occasion that prompted all those figures! ;_; A Tales friend of mine actually told me that Kratos' overall popularity within the series has tanked quite a bit in recent years, but I haven't looked it up myself. ;_; What is this self-made figure that you speak of. <O><O> Are there preview shots available? <O><O>
Wow, nice to see someone approve of the ~observing~. Hehe the Megahouse Petit Charas in general are how I started out collecting figures, so I'm really happy they exist! <3 I'm from Zurich, you?

Well...I am not 100% sure that the figure releases are connected with the reboot. XD I just came to that conclusion as they started pumping out all TOS figures after the remake of the game was announced. Soooo I could be wrong. XD
Really??? Then it is even more a shame that Alter or Kotobukiya still did not pick up that amazing redhead!
Haha~ no I am sorry, there are no preview pictures yet. It's still veryyy roughly made and I wanted to wait with a blog until I have some decent results. :'D
Hehe of course! Users are here to be stalked...or not. XD Oh yes...those cute little things are very addictive. Most of my first figures were Petits and other small figures as well! And then it quickly escalated to full scales. XD
I'm from Bern but live now in Olten. :3 Soo....I guess we could technically switch to German? XDDD
