iHelp picking out a figure!n/a    Readers' selection (2014-08-04)

Hello MFC!So, my birthday is in less than 2 weeks and I really want to buy a super nice figure that's more on the expensive side as opposed to nendoroids/figmas. The problem is, there's too many to choose from. I was wondering what some of your opinions are on which one I should choose.Of course, I know that I should choose which figure I like the most, but I love them all so it's hard! I'm not necessarily going to buy the one with the most votes, but maybe it could sway my decision in some way!

So, the figures that I really adore are:
item #27598
item #42025
item #162017
item #117949
item #160995
item #24773
item #42037
item #5769


Thanks in advance for the help~!

EDIT: I actually thought that I would be going for the Saber, but then I was surprised. Yesterday morning, I checked AmiAmi preowned to see if they added anything new, & I found the figure of Makise Kurisu in the lab coat. After debating whether or not I should buy it, I went for it. She was about $120 & A/B. Steins;Gate is probably my favorite show (next to Psycho-Pass) & I realized that I don't have many figures from it considering how many there are. I plan on buying the Plum Okabe down the road and I think that Kurisu would look nice with him.~

Thank you to everyone for the comments & votes! ^^

I would say the saber one I have never even seen the series, but it is a grand looking figure. I really like the Tsukihi figure, but I typically never buy characters that are not my favorite.

I agree with some of the comments here in regards to the rarity and popularity of the item. Some of the items might be difficult to find, as well as expensive (if you don't mind paying big that is). It's good to research the availability of an item before getting the majority vote here :)

As for choosing the item, I'd choose the Tsumugi Kotobuki item. It just seems really unique and plentiful in its own way. Good luck deciding and happy early birthday :)

Tough one. I voted for 1/7 Tsumugi Waitress because I own her, and know firsthand that she's absolutely gorgeous perfection. And I also happened to buy her as a birthday present to myself 2 years ago. Her cheerful colours and cute desserts fit in well with the birthday theme :P

But I also really want GSC's 1/8 Hitagi myself.

Good luck and happy early birthday! (Oh crap, my birthday is next month, what should I get....)

Mugi waitress ver. is one of my all time favourite figures. She's somewhat larger (being 1/7 scale), her paint and detailing is perfect, and her food tray is so adorable and detailed. Her expression is bright and cheerful and always makes me happy. She's so much awesomeness all wrapped up in one :)

Chloe-tsundere (3 years ago) #2287025Yeah i want moeka as well! She was my fav actually

Yeah, Moeka was rad.~ I don't think there was a character I didn't love from S;G.
Ruka is my favorite, he's so cute heh.~ I'm glad he has at least one figure that's taller than 10cm.

septemberism (3 years ago) #2286814I guess *why can't I buy them all at the same time~ would've been a better way to phrase it.~
But yeah, knowing I'll get them all sooner or later helps. Trying to decide which one to get immediately is just difficult because I adore them all so much. *~*
Yeahyeah~! I know that since Tsukihi is an exclusive (I just had to like the alternate version more~~), she's around 14k-16k usually & Kurisu is also an exclusive who goes for 12k. I guess money isn't an issue in this case since birthday money is always a nice amount, but down the road it will be.~ I'll probably just end up choosing which one I like the most though.~
Steins;Gate was one of the first shows I've watched, so Amane & Makise have been on my list for so long.~ I need to build up a Steins;Gate shrine, but the lack of Moeka/Daru items is upsetting.~

WanderingWastrel (3 years ago) #2286667You can buy them all. You just can't buy them all right now at the same time.
If it helps you decide, just remember you're not picking one and casting aside all the others forever. You're just deciding which one to get first. You'll get the others later, that's all.

NyteXero (3 years ago) #2286567If you like them all, consider the rarity factor of them. Exclusive or not? Some of them are limited so they maybe harder to find at a good price in the future. Current popularity is another factor to consider because price fluctuate a lot. Unless money is not an issue for you, do your homework and you will not regret it. Or else just choose the one you love the most.
