My Collection

Currently I'm re-organising my collection, which means I'm putting a lot of items up for sale! Please check out (mfc link) and (mfc link) which both will get a lot of updates!

My re-organisation also means I'm spending a lot of time offline, so I can sometimes be a bit slow in replying. When it's about sales/trades, I'll try to respond asap! I also have a job which is more than fulltime hours and includes a lot of travel, so I can respond on "weird" hours.

-----
Hello and welcome to my profile! See the video below for an (old) collection tour!



I'm a collector for all sorts of figures, but only have my Japanese listed here! I also collect movie- and (Western) gamefigures :) Next to that I have quite an extensive video game collection and collect a bit of art books, comic books and manga.

I give lectures, Q&A's and workshops at conventions, so if you're Dutch, there's a big chance you could see/hear me on a local convention. \^o^/ I also sometimes go to international cons and have been cosplay competition judge a few times.

I'm also staff in the eventmanagement for YaYcon! So if you have any tips about that convention-programme, would like to give an event yourself or have a nice idea for an event, let me know!

I'm a member of Fake Is Sad, if you would like to read more information about their work, see: (mfc link)

My goals on this site:
1. Write a review about all figures I own that aren't reviewed yet on this site!
2. Paint GK's and make WIP/tutorial-articles of it!
3. Get better in photographing figures and make a lot of pictures!
4. Like most people here: Try to get as much figures from my wishlist.
5. Make lots of new friends! \^o^/

I like to write reviews and articles about figures, so be sure to check my blog on here: (mfc link)

I'm a MOD for club #1015 , club #1065, club #840, club #829 and club #965 So if you have any pictures or database items from Baccano!, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, figures with wings, flowers or samurai that aren't linked, let me know! ^^

I'm also trying to sell quite some stuff (like games, anime-dvd's, manga, magazines and other merchandise). Take a look! [ext link ] It's in Dutch, but you can look at the pictures and see the prices! xP I also ship internationally! If you only want to see the figures I'm selling right now, you can look here: (mfc link) and here (mfc link)

My blog, things I'm working on:
- Review of the UK version of the Baccano! Blu Ray version
- Review of item #85718
- Review of item #264881
- Review of item #271940
- Review of item #271939

- Review of item #28954

Maakie (2 days ago) #13212010That is cute. :) I'm hoping for more animated series from the original cast, although the new series gets me excited too!
I don't really recommend the Kan Colle anime much. It's not really bad, but it's defenitely not super good either... I was a bit disappointed by it, but the action scènes are nice. I wished it had more interesting story. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high.
Are you familiar with Lucky Star? I'm planning on writing reviews about my Lucky Star x Kan Colle figures in the future, but I can already tell you that the Kan Colle characters they are cosplaying are so incredibly fitting for the personalities the Lucky Star girls have. That makes the set it extra worth it for me. :)
Ahhh, I love Ooyodo's design, but I have to admit I don't know much about her personally. Prinz Eugen was designed/drawn by my favorite artist, Humikane Shimada, so I'm incredibly prejudiced. ;) It also made me a really big fan of Z1 and U-511.
Hehe for me in general most of the German uniforms and outfits look really nice. It's too bad that the older ones have such a bad name to them, of course. I also really like older English-style uniforms.

Yeah me too. I love the 501st girls (except Eila), and it'd be a shame for them never to be featured again. I'm sure they'll have plenty of cameos in the Brave Witches series though. I'm excited to see it!

Yeah that's what I've been hearing. It seems like it might be fun if your standards aren't too high, or if you don't take it too seriously. The series doesn't seems to take itself seriously, so it could be pretty fun with the right mindset I think. I looks super weird watching them skate around on top of the water though.

Ha yes I am. It was one of my first favorite anime series. Clayz' Konata was my first ever figure :) They're always getting dressed up in new outfits, especially Konata; she seems to dig that kinda stuff, which is quite appropriate for someone like her.

Yeah she looks really neat. I feel like she's pretty softspoken and sweet, but generally serious about her job and about her duties and those of her piers (ship joke not intended). I like that type of character usually, as well as that type of person. Ah yeah. Prinz Eugen has a cool design for sure. We have Humikane to thank for Strike Witches as well. Even though he's had a hand in creating some of the coolest stuff in the anime world, he seems like kind of a creep, or at least a pervert, so I can't get into him too much; something about him feels odd to me. He has done amazing things though, as well as drawn some fantastic art.

Maakie (2 days ago) #13210669Oh jee, was ik vorig jaar dan nog zoveel meer dramatisch later? Ik weet het niet meer, haha!
Trouwens nog wat leuks gedaan of leuke cadeautjes (voor jezelf) gekocht? :)

Oh, ik dacht dat je dat zelf herinnerde, omdat je 'weer te laat' zei.
Een leuke dag gehad met familie, verder vooral nuttige spulletjes voor in huis gekregen. Ik heb zelf nog wat anime gekocht, waar ik erg blij mee ben.

Maakie (8 days ago) #12930090Toen met mandala's wist ik ook nog dat veel mensen die dingen kochten en amper afmaakten. Ik heb zelf uit mijn hoofd 2 boeken vol gemaakt en iets van 2-3 boeken voor de helft ofzo? Dus ik was nog redelijk dedicated, maar als je dan een tijdje zo'n boek niet aanraakt, dan vergeet je ze gewoon... Ik durf te wedden dat die half-afgemaakte nog ergens bij oude schoolspullen bij mijn ouders opgeslagen liggen. xD
Haha, dat is dan je voordeel dat jij goed bent met tekenen! ;) Toen ik vroeger zelf nog wel eens tekende, had ik nooit de motivatie om te kleuren weet ik nog... xD
Onze eerste Blu-Ray speler zat in een laptop met een zo uit mijn hoofd 19" scherm, dus daar zag je nou niet per se verbetering in verhouding tot DVD's op. Toen wij later de laptop aan ons iets grotere TV destijds aansloten was het "ooh, ja als je dichtbij kijkt is het wel wat scherper". xD Pas toen wij een 50" TV kochten (go big or go home dachten we toen onze oude aan vervanging toe was xD), was het echt een wereld van verschil. En toen baalde ik best wel, want ik had net 2 weken er voor meerdere van m'n favoriete anime op DVD gekocht bij Zavvi na wat maandjes sparen (Steins;Gate, Black Butler & Pumpkin Scissors). De meesten had ik voor +/-10 euro meer in Blu-Ray kunnen hebben. :/
Ik kan je garanderen dat als jij ook een grote TV koopt je hetzelfde gaat denken. xD Je gaat echt het verschil zien. Dus om jezelf veel kosten, moeite en spijt te besparen raad ik je aan een kleine TV te houden voor nu. :') (Aan de andere kant, een grote TV is wel echt heel gaaf!)
Nou ik ben nog steeds benieuwd hoe alles gaat lopen bij de Abunai! compo. xD


Dat is inderdaad erg dedicated. Maar ik kan me inderdaad voorstellen dat, als je wordt afgeleid door andere dingen, dat je het dan gewoon vergeet en het nooit meer afmaakt.

Ik maak vooral veel zwart-wit tekeningen (met inktpennen enzo), maar vorig jaar heb ik eens een mooie set kleurpotloden gekocht en toen ben ik een beetje gaan experimenteren. Ik moet zeggen dat ik het best leuk vind om te doen! Ik ben stiekem ook best trots op deze: [ext link ]

Ik heb momenteel 'gelukkig' geen ruimte voor een gigantische tv. Dat gaat pas wat worden wanneer ik op mezelf ga. :P Maar dat ligt er een beetje aan hoe groot mijn toekomstige huiskamer gaat worden. xD Maar kan me wel voorstellen dat je baalt als je net een lading dvd's hebt gekocht terwijl een blu-ray er zoveel mooier uit had gezien op die giga tv.

Ehh...sterkte! Ik hoop dat alles goed gaat!

Maakie (5 days ago) #13071965That's nice to hear! :) Did you do anything nice for your birthday? ^^

Yes! My boyfriend gave me a surprise and took me to a children's playground open for adults at night, with ball pool, bouncy ... it was really fun! :D!
