The Halfway Point: Mid May 2017 Additions.

TyjosAzari5 months agoAsk MFC
Well I managed to get through a week or so without getting anything and ended up picking up a few things this weekend.

Been fixated a little bit on getting some more Kaworu Nagisa and Mari figures into the Evangelion collection and came across one of the Kaworu figures that I have been wanting to get for a while on ebay and used best offer to get that one at a good deal so I'm fairly content with what's coming in right now.

ITEM #61142 and ITEM #124882 will be added to my Evangelion collection and I'm tempted to look into some of the other Evangelion Kaworu figures that are out there but I think I'll just stick with these.


ITEM #101454 Picked this one up this weekend and that should be arriving next week.

ITEM #167042 Got Melda since I wanted to get this one back into the collection after I watched the Yamato 2199 series again this past week.

I didn't want to spend a lot this month on figures and so far the only figures that cost me a lot were ITEM #133976 ITEM #167042 and ITEM #61142 and everything else was pretty cheap so I haven't spent a lot but it still added up pretty fast.

ITEM #124882 was the cheapest figure this month [only paid $22 for him]
ITEM #61142 was the expensive figure this month [Paid $81 for him]


-Picked up the last Kaworu figure ITEM #108468 that was on my wish list and looks like my Kaworu figure collection is growing,got that figure from Terraformer's store and it was pretty cheap too [$22 for that figure] and now I don't have any figures on my wish list.

-Update 2 Picked up Shinji ITEM #158202 at a good deal from the seller I got Mari from and looking at the other Ichiban Kuji figures that are in that set so those will be on the wish list to pick up next month.



Managed to keep things organized as usual, getting everything into one area and cleared some space in the other glass display case that's on the other side of the room for all the new figures so once they get in they will go on display.

No space for figures on this side of the room so anything new goes on the other side of the room. Cleared out a lot of my Macross/Robotech items this past month and this is all that's left of the Macross collection.

Cleaning out some of the the Robotech/Macross collection this month helped to make a little bit and I have been spending within what I made off selling ITEM #6914 ITEM #11264 and ITEM #346214 so that has helped to keep things under control with spending this month.


Only other thing for this month will be the TMNT Neca 1/4th scale Leonardo that's due out May 31st and I am looking forward to that one since I want Leonardo on display with the other two Turtles that I have on display here.

This month I focused a little bit on the Yamato 2199 series and Evangelion figures and I'm fairly pleased that I spent slightly less than $300 on figures and If that's all I do this month I'll be fine since this month is passing by pretty quickly.

I like Ichiban Kuji's prize figures and SEGA makes some pretty decent looking figures and they are pretty cheap but it adds up fast so it's back to waiting a little while before getting any more figures into the collection.



btw folks I think I'll stop talking about collection management/budget related stuff here on MFC and just stick to figures because there are times I feel like Quark trying to explain finances to the Klingon High Council at times.



I think I covered that subject long enough so it'll be a nice change to get back to focusing on figures again since I'm almost finished with cleaning out and budget plans at the moment are working so no need to talk about it all the time.


So what have you added into your collection at this point in the month?

My Hanayo Training nendo ITEM #318692 arrived, and with that I finally finished the set. Also got some nendo parts from splits. Now I'm waiting on Tama ITEM #464591, but she won't be released until May 29th, so I won't get her before June.

pradshaw89 (5 months ago) #21118803Waiting for nendoroid tamamo ITEM #464591 together with the rest of µ's training outfit vers. ITEM #318683, ITEM #318682, ITEM #318692, ITEM #318689 and a prize figure thrown in ITEM #246220.
Also just managed to order my 1st saber scale ITEM #287683 :)


Great choices.

Heldrik (5 months ago) #21125182Totally unrelated to the topic, but damn, those first movie Ninja Turtles are rad (although Donnie's belt is way too high). Do you have the four of them or only those two?
Basically, that whole room oozes sci-fi and I love it; I'm particularly digging those Man of Steel action figures and that Yui scale statue.


My main focus with collecting is mostly Scifi, and after the purge of the anime collection it feels so much better now [My collection was at it's height before the purge of 440 items] The two NECA Turtles I have are the ones that have been released so far. The other half of the room has my Star Trek Ships [Some Diamond Select ships and the Star Trek Eaglemoss Starship Collection ships] and Gi Joe Vehicles.

Leonardo is the next turtle due out at the end of this month and Michelangelo is due out in September,I have both of those Preordered. Donatello's belt is like that probably because I had moved things around and didn't get it pulled down to where it should be but they are amazing figures and they are 1/4th scale and cost about $100 each and have some nice detailing on them.

The Man of Steel Play Arts Kai figures are among my favorites in the collection, I would LOVE to get a Hot Toys General Zod but he's a bit too expensive and the Play Arts Kai figures are nicely done I still need to find the Black Suited Superman to complete the Man of Steel set.

The Muv Luv figures survived the purge and I love Yui Takamura's suit design so had to keep that one.

victorviper (5 months ago) #21117538It's been a while since I've watched DS9 in its entirety, but I remember that scene with Quark and Gowron was pretty funny. When the chips are down, the Klingons are pretty good allies, but don't let them run your central bank!

I watch DS9 so much my twitter feed twitter.com/Tyj... is full of Startrek, I'm in the midst of watching DS9 episodes every day and I watch Star Trek more than I Watch Anime. Still it's a perfect scene with how Gowron tosses aside the padd lol
