Introduction & How I Became A Collector...
Hello! Welcome to my page. My name is Hannah and I've been collecting figures since mid to late 2009. Even before for then, I always had a thing for collecting something. The list goes on forever of what, but collecting TY's Beanie Babies and US state quarters (now complete) was probably the most major and long lasting. I became greatly interested in anime after my best friend in fifth grade introduced me to the show Inuyasha. It was my obsession for quite a while, until it gradually progressed to other shows, mainly anime that aired on [adult swim]. I did watch anime before that though, such as Pokemon and Sailor Moon in my younger years (around six to nine), just knew nothing about anime at the time.
In 2007, I purchased by first figure on vacation in California, it was Yamaoto Isoroku. I honestly under estimated the value of them at the time, so her box is missing and her foot had to be hot glued back to base, but I still cherish her being my first. The following year, on vacation to California again, I purchased yet another, which was Tandem Twin Merino. However, I no longer own her after selling her during a financial pit.
It was not until 2009 when I became interested in collecting figures. That was when the Hetalia one coins by Kotobukiya released. Becoming more and more interested figures, I lurked/stalked online US stores that sold them and eBay. That was when I originally came across Cattleya from Queen's Blade and received my first figure of her by Griffon (that was a gift). Then so become the interested in collecting Cattleya merch and ecchi figures.
My collecting of figures in general did not start until 2010. That's when I was more 'experienced', so to say, and found Japanese online stores and ditched eBay and US retailers for the most part. Today, I consider myself to be a dedicated collector. The majority of my collection consists of Cattleya and general ecchi, with occasional characters from shows I enjoy (but it'd have to be a pretty special character).
Eventually, I'd like to start collecting Sailor Uranus/Sailor Neptune (Haruka and Michiru) trading cards (especially prism) and other merchandise. They're been one of my favorite couples since I was a kid, and probably my first favorite as well. But due to the rarity of most Sailor Moon merch the prices are too much for me right now, unfortunately.
Aside from anime figures, I'd like to get into collecting cow (yes, the animal) figures and other collectibles (but according to some people I'm already collecting cow figures, haha). I love every animal equally but cows are just one of those animals that I've loved for many years. They're adorable, powerful, and yet gentle and loving. Ultimately, I hope to have at least one as an animal companion in my life time.
I have a Want to Buy (WTB) list that include a few pieces I greatly desire for my collection, (mfc link). If you're willing to sell anything on the list please let me know!
Furthermore, if you're a fan of anything I collect don't be shy to send a FR! ♥
You may know me from the infamous picture of the Cattleya A+ statue with my Grandpa. Honestly, the popularity of the picture was very unexpected. And yes, my Grandpa is aware of all the fame it has received and is quite surprised himself. However, he is happy and thanks me for 'making him famous', haha. I greatly appreciated the love shown by fellow MFC users as well as everyone else and thank everyone for the sweet comments!
Also, if there's anything you want to know about me feel free to ask!
