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)

Maakie (1 day ago) #2418707Hrmm with me it's so that I don't buy much, but when I buy I do big orders. :P So then it's quite overwhelming for me when there's a huge package or multiple packages and in combination with that, I also currently can't have much detolfs up for display...so most of the items have to go back in their boxes currently, which takes some of the fun out of it. Here's my current list of unopened figures: (mfc link) But I have way more in storage, because of lack of space... q.q I'm really looking forward to moving to a bigger place, as you can imagine. :P
In general I'm always afraid with action figures, because most of them look so fragile and they can easily loose limbs. >.<
Just buy lots of boxes and start with the biggest figures first. After that you can look at it more calmly and see where all the small things fit. :)
Ah, I used to hang them at the iron bars of my detolfs! I don't have pictures of it right now, but I think it looked quite cool if I say so myself. xD


Whoaa, that's a lot of figures in your unopened list. xD
And I noted the tips! xD

Speaking of fragile-ness, that's the reason why I keep all my collections in their boxes. 8"DDD
I'm afraid I'll lose some parts and for scale figures, besides losing limbs, I'm afraid they'll lean. I know I won't be brave enough to put them in hot water and fix them so I'll keep them in the box to be safe. Sometimes I let them out so they won't be sticky.

And about lack of space, that's my current problem too.
Most of my scale figures are put outside my cupboards. They don't fit in there. ;A;
It's so troublesome to clean the dust. OTL

Maakie (6 days ago) #2409174Since we are talking about Biohazard, are you planning on playing the new game from the creator of Biohazard, called The Evil Within? I'm very very interested, but since I don't have much time to play games currently, I'll just wait until a few price drops.
Yeah, most of the Japanese music has quite some hard-to-understand English in there, but sometimes I'm surprised at how well it sounds! Such as the whole soundtrack of the Panty and Stocking anime!
You are really lucky with an official Bandai Indonesia distributor!!! Do you have anymore official distrubutors within your own country? Here I just have to import anything I'm interested in, because we only have resellers...
I also have the idea Revoltech's didn't really improve in quality, but the price has risen a lot. >.<
Haha, but yeah, I had lots of fun with Woody! I'll have to think of how and where to display him when I set up my collection again. Maybe I'll put him on the shelf with my more "pervy" figures such as item #61484 and item #144408 !
Well, I don't know about those Yu-Gi-Oh! figures yet! Pre-orders are open at my local resellers, but they are more expensive than your regular prize figure, while I think the detail-amount on them is like a prize figure and they are a bit smaller...also I can't get them from my usual Japanese stores, as they are from an US manufacturer...so argh! I have been doubting so much! I want them, that's for sure, but I'm not sure about their price! What do you think?
Nice review again, Vio! Although her crotch creeped me out a bit too, haha! Her articulation is amazing, though!
Btw!! I bought a light box recently! So I hope in the future to make some super-pro pictures with that, haha! But first I have a lot of pictures stored on my computer of figures I should make reviews of first!


Maakie (6 days ago) #2409197I gave in and ordered the 3 available NECA Yu-Gi-Oh! figures! Let's hope they are worth their price! Q.Q

I'd like to but, you know... I haven't been able to buy console games since I'm getting into the figure collections & like you, I don't have much time as well here to play games.

Hahaha, I can see that, sometimes the lyrics confuses me too... Yeah, I think they tried to hide their accent quite nicely.

Yeah, but I have to wait a bit longer for their arrival... Hmm, doesn't Netherland also got an official Bandai Europe distributor? I thought I heard one but, I don't know if they're available in your country.

It's not just Bandai but, we also got an official GSC distributor & many more here. That's why we can get some stuff alot cheaper.

My big bro Patlabor's 1st release mostly cost less than 2000 yen but, now the reissued one cost almost 4000 yen...

Hahaha, to be frank I didn't even think that you liked to display him with a pervy figures there... Because in here, mostly only men who likes to display him with a pervy figures.

Oh, well... Since you end up ordering them, I guess we shall wait and see how this will turned out. To be honest, I cannot give a good suggestion, since I'm not really familiar with NECA figures. But, judging from your experience I think it's going to be worth.

Thanks alot there! Happy that you like the review again, Bandai still could have done better than that. However, I personally think, Bandai's anime figuarts are far from GSC's anime Figma figures. You know, while GSC is still progressing figma of CC Sakura, Bandai apparently already created their own figuarts CC Sakura. I'd like to know your thoughts about these 2 Sakura item #235879 & item #258813, as for me I think eventhough figma is still unpainted but, the sculpt work & likeness are even better than figuarts one. But, still have to wait for the final result, though...

Wow, let me know when you're done then! I bet your review would be more interesting with it.

Maakie (4 days ago) #2413022No problem! :D It's really important to keep weight in mind, especially if you're not quick with unboxing and they will be weeks/months in the same boxes! And yeah, I used to put all my boxes on my parents attic, so I also never realised how much I had until it was time to put them in moving boxes! :P The very very first time I moved, I had so little figures that I moved all of them without their boxes and just put them in lots of bubble wrap and wrapping paper. Needless to say multiple figures got damaged because of that and it's a beginners-mistake I will never forget! >.< Or unsee, because of the damages on my figures. :'(
Putting figure boxes in moving boxes is like playing tetris, haha!
Yeah I also had a period where I mainly liked and collected large items, but nowadays I'm more into the small stuff. It's mainly trading figures for me now, but in the future I want to collect lots of merchandise too! I recently acquired some bookmarks and post-its from series that I like...and they are so cute and easy to display! And cheap! :D


Actually I'm really quick with unboxing! xD
I don't get my loots regularly so when they arrived, I just can't stop myself to unbox them! >///<

Aww, we all made mistakes. I still remember the first time I broke a Nendoroid joint. I was so... shocked.... ;A;
After that incident I rarely swap Nendoroid face now. It's a traumatic incident...

I see, I'm pretty good at tetris, hopefully I'll be as good when it comes to figures! xD

That's nice to hear! I want to display my rubber straps too someday, maybe when I have the space for them. :3
