i30 Day Figure Challengen/a    Readers' selection (2017-02-09)

It would probably make more sense to publish this on the first of some month or another, but I got bored today during class and wrote a 30-day figure challenge. I formatted it to be doable on Instagram and on a more blogging-based site like MFC or Tumblr. Without further ado, here's my 30 Day Figure Challenge!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/6aa55a1fe34eb137cb15c0a60331e946/tumblr_ol1gesntY71qc40lao1_1280.jpg

1. Your Gateway Figure (figure that got you into figure collecting)
2. Your most entry-level figure (ex: Funko Pops or Amiibos)
3. Most obscure figure (ex: ribbit king trading figs)
4. An impulse buy (self explanatory)
5. Figure you spent the most on (not necessarily with highest original price)
6. Best deal you've gotten (free shit that wasn’t a gift counts)
7. Favourite poseable figure (Figmas, Revoltech, Real Action Heroes, Chogokin)
8. Favourite chibi figure (like the Persona Happy Kuji chibis, Chibi-Arts, Cu-Poche, Nendoroids...)
9. Favourite Prize figure (pls forgive my dumb butt for writing this out wrong the first time-- but it's what you think it is!!)
10. First grail owned (self explanatory, I hope)
11. Items or characters you have multiples of (includes shrines)
12. Figure non-collectors would appreciate (for example, I’ve gotten compliments on my Animal Crossing figures and Pokémon stuff)
13. Figure you're ashamed to show your family (NSFW figures or lewd figures, particularly)
14. Fixer-upper or a figure you've had to repair (maybe you broke it or it came broken)
15. Item with an interesting story (like, you found it at a local thrift store somehow and it wasn’t a bootleg)
16. Most nostalgic item (example: old school Pokémon plushies for me)
17. Most annoying item (example: my Cardcaptor Sakura Nendoroid is impossible to keep together)
18. Gaudiest/tackiest item (I say this with love as a gaudy motherfucker. Example: the Phat/Galaxxxy Panty and Stocking collab, most solid gold-coloured things)
19. Biggest figure (example: 1/2.5 scale kirino)
20. Smallest figure (example: the tiny Re-ment Sailor Moon that came with the cake kit)
21. Favourite figure received as a gift (self explanatory)
22. Favourite pair of figures to display together (whether they’re from the same series or not-- ie I want to display Smash Amiibo Zelda with Smash Amiibo Peach cuz they hold hands)
23. Cutest figure (example: Fruit Parlor Sailor Moon, Ronya, Nendoroid Usami)
24. Edgiest figure (example: Koto’s Kaneki Ken, Megahouse’s Dark Precure, any Shadow the Edgehog)
25. Series you wish was complete (whether it’s unfinished by the company or you don’t have all of them)
26. Completed series (ie all four YuruYuri Nendoroids)
27. Oldest item (one that was made the earliest, not the one you’ve owned the longest)
28. Most recent acquisition (duh)
29. Your display (shelfie!)
30. Favourite item(s) (you can pick many!! Cuz I sure can’t pick one...)

Also, I'd like to remind everyone that I'm still looking for Nendoroid parts pictures! If you're interested in participating in the Nendoroid parts database I'm working on, please check the blog post here.

bellechan (3 months ago) #19979194I have some questions o.o
*not a native english here*
In number 9, what you mean by "prize figure"? I thought it was about the category "prize" (like Sega figures, Banpresto, etc). But I saw a blog and it was something about "longest hunt" .-.? Something that I'm hunting for long shouldn't be a "holy grail" somehow? XD
Can you explain no.24, please? ç.ç I searched "Edgiest" and it came as "irritable". It would be a irritable character? Otherwise it similar to no.17 ;x;
sorry and thanks ^^~


your english is fine, don't worry about it!

number 9 is about the category, like sega or banpresto figures, and "Longest Hunt" was a mistake I made when typing up the original graphic-- basically the thing you have that you searched for for the longest.

and by "edgy" i mean... hmm... urban dictionary for once gives a decent definition: "Taking coolness to its extreme and generally beyond the realm of actual possibility, while at the same time seemingly unaware of how ridiculous it is." for an example, they give Dante from DMC, but Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul and Sasuka Uchiha from Naruto are also edgy characters.

Almina (3 months ago) #19417849About number two (most entry level figure), I don't really collect Funkos and Amiibos, so would Nendoroids also count?

i think nendoroids could count! you could also pick a miku or a saber or nintendo merch, like the sort of thing you'd expect a beginner to have~

nyugvo6 (5 months ago) #18121444what if I never got a gift?

you could always do a gift you got yourself! i know i'm not the only one who treats myself on holidays... maybe... or use Longest Hunt as a freebie, if you want.

Me473 (5 months ago) #18134109I'm planning to do it next month. Though I'm not sure I understand what you mean by number 10 (First grail owned)

so in terms of grail figures, I'm talking about the first grail figure you actually got in your collection. for me it'd probably be item #166660 or item #119376 when i get my order in.
