The softer side to collecting

Echii Echii and more Echii, it's pretty much the way that my collection has gone since I first started to collect in 2012. I have watched anime over anime to the point where I am nearing the 500 mark in (MAL) anime's watched since 2012.

What does this have to do with the title well let me tell you, this year I am noticing a trend that I have yet to see since 2012. Weddings, yes Wedding attire on figurines, now don't get me wrong I am not saying that there were no Wedding attire figurines in the past. Actually one of my favourite was Miura Azusa from idol master. Want to hear something funny, I never watched a single episode but that figurine was just one of those that I fell in love with.

Now maybe its nostalgic cause I got married a few years earlier and I would have loved to see by bride in a fancy wedding dress but we opted on a civilian wedding and not to go overboard and buy a wedding dress for a few thousand dollars. No that image of Azusa in that wedding dress I found classy.

Fast forward now to 2017. Within the first few months of this year alone I have seen 4 wedding versions of figurines. Maybe I was not paying attention that much over the last 5 years but I can't remember seeing any wedding versions coming out. Most likely there were but they did not bedazzle me enough to make me look twice I guess.

This year we have Rem :

Super Sonico 10th anniversary:

Granted these two are Echii.


My favourite Kurumi from Date a Live.

I love the OVA and have watched time and time again. Kurumi my favourite character in the show.

And yesterday morning I saw Nia Teppelin although she was available for pre-order before Kurumi.

Is 2017 special in some way in the anime where weddings are a theme? It will be interesting to see what else companies are going to come out with if not then even just these 4 are quite the haul for anyone loving wedding theme figurines. How many of you would purchase at least one of the figurines above? How many of you could not give a dam that they are making wedding versions of popular figurines. How many of you think this is just a cash grab to appease a certain demographic of collectors out there?

I look forward to your comments bellow.

secretly-otaku (3 months ago) #19571370Whoops! Sorry about that... I thought I read all the comments.
But that's a lovely figure, right?... truly a great job made by Max Factory. The plot that dress is based on, thought... well, let's just stick to the figure itself xP.

That looks more like a swimsuit than a wedding dress version on Rem.

Nia actually did get married in the anime and can be pictured wearing said dress in the last episode. Nia all the way :D

Rem does have the most natural, fun look though, will appeal to alot of ppl.

item #361037 is also pretty nice even though shes on the ecchi side haha

Xenomorph05 (3 months ago) #19546607The wedding figures are gorgeous. I would definitely pick up item #61347 as there can never be to much Boa.lol, I own Boa and I have her displayed cast off!

Tiamat26 (3 months ago) #19544735LOL... Now if I did not have a wife I think Momo would come out cheaper then to actually having a wife...Since you have a wife not getting her is the right decision since 3500$ is pocket change compared to a divorce. :)
I've got a few figures in wedding dress item #13809 is my favorite although I also like item #190602 and Tony's item #164567.

Stalgonoff (3 months ago) #19542689...There's also item #322874 which is coming out in a few months (hopefully). She's also Alter's first cast off that I know of so it'll be interesting to see how they handle it. (I'm not including forced cast offs.)I remember Alter's item #1227 which I considered when I was buying Ikki Tousen figures.
