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 (2 days ago) #2409132Thanks! It took quite a long time to stack, haha! And also to think about it! I wanted to be sure no heavy stuff was placed on the lighter stuff etc.! Boxes with trading figures are a lot more heavy than a box with 2-3 scaleds in there!
When I moved out of my parents home to my first studio appartment, I think my collection of figures fitted in just 3 moving boxes!! :') I mainly had trading figures back then and a few prizes!
Oh yeah, scale figures with huge boxes are a pain! For example my item #72239 and item #72240 are both 3/4 of a moving box! D: So with both I just put 1 or 2 figma's next to them and that was all that fit, haha!


Thanks for the tips! It'll be useful when I move out someday. xD

I never really pay attention to such things because now I'm keeping my collection in separate cupboards and I don't have enough space in each cupboard to stack them. >.<

I don't have many scale figures right now but somehow I can imagine how difficult it will be when I have to fit them all in one huge box. :"D

I think that's one reason why my urge to buy has decreased lately. I'm dragged to merchandise world, though. I ordered some rubber straos. Luckily, straps are easy to keep. It has small box and won't lean. xD

Maakie (9 days ago) #2396573I think all the ones in the database here are the ones existing from NECA! So no Claire, but there is a Leon! Around here I notice Leon is very popular with the biohazard-fans, even more popular than most of the female characters!
Ah, but to me (also because I don't know the Japanese language very well) it already feels like a lot of pop music combines English and Japanese. That's because I only recognize the English words! :P
The prices that shock me most for action figures are the prices for Play Arts Kai...I remember that I used to like them because of their low price...which they nowadays don't have anymore...they are just as expensive as the simpler-detailed scaled figures nowadays!
With Shadow Moon it looks to me like the new one has slightly more realistic silver...? But they are very alike I think so too!
Oh no no, you really shouldn't get that Yoko, haha! She is really fragile and hard to pose! Her detailing and sculpt is quite good, but the bad posing and the horrible base just take a lot of the fun away...no matter how good she looks I could never really get her in a pose that I liked and she always looked awkward! >.<
I hope the Figma of Snake will look well! But I trust the Figma-brand a lot more about that! :)
Oh yeah people only buy Woody because of the funny face! And to be honest I had a lot of fun with that too... :P

Although I don't know much about Patlabor, I really like the detailing of that figure in the prototype pictures!


Yeah, I think NECA haven't made Claire until now. Yeah, I saw Leon in the database. Looking great I think, even he looks better than the Play Arts Kai version I think. Wow, I never thought Leon was so popular, I thought Jill & Chris would be on the top. Oh, well... I think this is not going to be easy on getting Leon.

I understand Japanese a little here but, I don't really mind on Japanese song which got an English word because, most of them did not sound like they're singing English due to their accent. But, some of them who're fluent also good I think, like Utada Hikaru, B'z, Kotoko, & May'n. Compare to them, Indonesian idol is nothing for me. Well, it's just me I think.

Yeah, the older release of Play Arts is even cheaper than those price, I even got my Play Arts Kai Solid Snake for only $45, while Liquid I got him for a hundred bucks, ugh...

I don't really see much differences in ShadowMoon frankly, as for the silver I couldn't really tell much if they're made to be more realistic on the prototype, because I just found out that Bandai Tamashii apparently reedited the official photos through photoshop adding a big changes. However, I still preordered for only less than 3000 yen, because I preordered from the official Bandai Indonesia distributor which they got cheaper prices due to their connections from the factory. However, they'll arrived 2 months after the official release due to the slow shipping.

I see... You know, I just touched my big bro's new reissued Revoltech Helldiver, apparently the material is still pretty much the same. It looks so fragile, I'm very hesitant to handle or even do the review on it because it's not mine. Btw, what I really hate is exchanging the alternate head is still pain in the ass.

Hope so, as I ever experienced figma never disappoint me at all, even if they're not good I can still ask for the replacement from the customer service for free. It's like they won't let me says "I feel disappointed".

Hahahaha, yes I can see you had alot of fun. Nice photography you tooked there.

Yeah, have to admit the details are great but, Revoltech is still fragile. We really need to handle it very gently.

Maakie (8 days ago) #2398026Well, that was unexpected! We just talked about NECA and they just released a set of Yu-Gi-Oh! figures!!! (mfc link)

Wow! Looking nice as far as I see, are you going to collect them all?

Btw, this is my newest review Sailor Saturn, my very 1st anime crush when I was a kid. But, I only knew her as Hotaru Tomoe on my childhood.
