30 DAY FIGURE CHALLENGE - 1

I want to try with the ”30 Day Figure Challenge” figure challenge,since I found it really interesting and fun and a good chance to deepen a bit into the figure hobby beyond the photography sessions,so let's give it a try ♥

Instead to upload it on instagram I'm gonna write one entry here every week with 6 points of the challenge,so let’s start with it!


1-Your Gateway Figure

Evangelion Rei & Asuka Plugsuit ver from Kotobukiya, this was one of my first figure loves and the one which mades me fall into figure collecting about 9 years ago. In that time I was working part time at a comic store and we have a lot of Evangelion figures and I really was in love with this one,but it was so expensive for me and I can’t afford it xD It’s funny because in the end I never get to bought it, maybe I should add it to my collection if I found it at good price ≥w≤


2-Your most entry-level figure

Aside from gashapon figures I think this is for my Pinky St.They were my first trading figures,I bought them because they were cheap,really cute and they have a lot of different models in my local stores. For that time I din’t bought online stuff,so they were a really lovely and cheap option to start collecting,but few months later I entered the BJD world and I stopped to collect Pinkys xD


3-Most obscure figure

Matou Sakura Makiri’s Grail from Gift, this beauty is gonna be in the list of this challenge so many times though xD I din’t konw how to go with this point,ut in the end I chose my most obscure figure as concept and character ( if it makes any sense xD) . For me this Gift’s Dark Sakura always have been one of the most beautiful figures of the Fate series for both sculture and the way they capted the character, I always wanted to have her in my collection and since she arrived I’m totally in love with her ♥


4-An impulse buy

https://ylliadolls.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/img_81412.jpg

Hachikuji Mayoi from Kotobukiya, a really unexpected (and impulsive xD) buy, but I regret nothing! She wasn’t in my wishlist but I found her in Mandarake while searching for Xmas presents last December,so after looking for some user’s pictures of her in Tsuki Board I clicked the add to cart button without thinking so much about it,and I must tell it was a great buy! Is a super cute and well sculpted and painted figure, very recommended if you have te chance to get her at good price!


5-Figure you spent the most on

https://ylliadolls.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/img_7981-editar.jpg

Lelouch Bi Britannia G.E.M from Megahouse, I think this is the figure in which i spent the most from all my collection >_< He was my first buy online outside from Spain,I got him on AmiAmi and although his preorder price was cheap ( he didn’t reach 7000 yens) I ordered the shipping by EMS and also he came with customs bills,so in the end the price of the figure increased a bit more of the double. I paid about 170€ for him,but nowadays he’s one of my favorite figures xD


6-Best deal you've gotten

Alvis E. Hamilton from Alter. I use to search a lot for good offers, but I think this one was the best of all xD. I'm a big fan of Last Exile and Murata's desings and I've been searching for Alvis for ages, but even she's an old figure and really small one the aftermarket prices were very high and she was over 80€ used, since it was a really high price for me for this figure I decided to wait and continue searching for more suitable offers. And one day I found the one! xD

Few weeks later I found her in a second hand sales group of Facebook for 15€,and after asking for pictures and assure she wasn't a bootleg,this cutie was on her way home for the next day ♥


And that's all for this week!I'l upload another 6 points next week,also I want to thank my friend Shike ( SHIKE_RENO) to encourage me to do this challenge ♥ Thanks for reading!

victorviper (7 months ago) #18279089The Rei/Asuka figure was one of my gateway figures, too. Unfortunately, I've currently relegated it to a bottom shelf on one of my Detolf since it takes up so much space and is hard to display...

It seems this figure is the same for many of us,it was quite popular in that time haha. Ohh I know, the base is quite big and takes up a lot of space,but is a great figure!
