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)

Maakie (16 days ago) #14016780Oh ecoline! Toen ik dat voor het eerst ontdekte op de middelbare school ben ik er helemaal mee uit mijn dak gegaan toen, haha! Daar kan je echt mooie dingen mee maken! :) Welke tekeningen op je DA zijn met ecoline?
Een vriendin die ik had op de middelbare school was niet zo goed met tekenen, maar wél met copics. Dus zij haalde dan zwart-wit art van het internet, printte het uit en ging toen helemaal los. Het is dat inkleurder zijn zo'n dood beroep is hier, maar anders zou zij zeker goed aan de slag kunnen als één!
Zolang er genoeg ruimte om de apperaten heen is, dan is het niet erg dat het in een kast staat, hoor! Ik zeg het ook vooral omdat ik zelf in het verleden een hele grote fout er mee gemaakt heb... Ik had toen ik nog bij mijn ouders woonde altijd mijn Gamecube in een krappe la van een kast zitten waar het ding net in paste. En dan speelde ik dus ook met de Gamecube aan in die la... ^^'' Ik weet nog dat ik vroeger zat te grappen dat er "warme lucht uit de la omhoog kwam". Pas jaren later realiseerde ik me hoe dom ik bezig ben geweest al die jaren! (Gelukkig voor mij is die Gamecube nooit kapot gegaan.)
Ik denk dat we zelf nog maar eens voor iets meer customizable moeten gaan. We zijn blij met onze TV kast, maar hebben nog wel wat losse spullen. En het is een wirwar aan lelijke snoeren overal. Ik wil die nog mooi weg gaan werken, ookal weet ik nog niet hoe. :P
Jep...daar komt ook nog eens bij kijken dat ik voor mijn werk nu ook heel vaak op zaterdagen moet werken, wat ons maar 1 dag in de week geeft om samen iets te doen. We kunnen wel genoeg los van elkaar ook doen, maar heel handig is het niet aangezien het huis en de indeling toch van ons samen is en je dingen wilt bespreken. ^^'' Nee, dat ik uitkijk naar eindelijk weer vakantie samen hebben is geen geheim. xD Ookal is het maar voor samen uitrusten en klusjes doen!
En yes, vooral in de tuin zien we veel verandering! Nu ook met het warme weer van de afgelopen tijd kunnen we eindelijk goed zien welke planten wel of niet dood zijn in de tuin. xD Verbazend genoeg staat bijna alles in bloei, terwijl we dachten een bijna compleet dode tuin te hebben toen we dit huis kochten. xD


Ik heb het beperkt gebruikt op een tekening, met ook maar een kleur. Deze: [ext link ]
Ik heb het op de grafische opleiding ook eens gebruikt, maar die tekeningen staan niet online omdat het meer uitprobeersels waren. xD

Oef, een GC in een kast. Nee, dat is inderdaad niet zo heel goed voor zo'n ding nee. De warmte kan niet kwijt dus dan raakt zo'n ding oververhit. Gelukkig heeft je GC het overleefd!

Ik heb zelf ook nog geen idee hoe je de snoeren zou moeten wegwerken. Je zit tenslotte ook nog met de controllers, en oprollen is nogal slecht voor het snoer.

Ik dacht te menen dat je in oktober vakantie zou hebben? Dat is al best snel. Ik kan me voorstellen dat nu klusjes te doen inderdaad wat lastig coördineren is, ja, zeker als je niet op dezelfde dagen vrij bent. Maar slow motion is better than no motion, zeggen ze altijd.

Grappig hoe dat zo anders kan zijn binnen een seizoen. Wel een mooie meevaller dat je toch een vrij levende tijd lijkt te hebben!

Alvast veel plezier op Abunai! trouwens!

Maakie (12 days ago) #14099167Hello!
Oh man, that is a lot! Lol. Isn't there any possibility to unsubscribe from all that spam? I would go crazy, lol. I think my e-mail is about 50 messages a day, but I also do most of the contact for my volunteer work through e-mail. I think 1-3 a day are MFC related? They get compiled to one message with Gmail. ;)
Haha, well I have to shamefully admit, they changed a lot of things at the job description and tasks I have...so now I have a lot more "bad days" at work. :/ Oh well, I hope it improves soon again. I don't like the job getting changed so much after just getting it, this is not what I signed up and got trained for. :/
I sometimes laugh at the size Japanese give to their straps and charms. I've seen people getting straps in loot-posts that were bigger than their hand!
NO! That is the most stupid part! I'm using the same cord at work and home. But the charging only happens at work! I don't understand! D: I even bought a new cord and did the same thing: Charging at home: no, Charging at work: yes. How? Why?
The thing that actually worries me more with second hand electronics, is saved items and maybe spam/virusses etc. left bij het previous user. So annoying to get rid of all of that and I've had electronics that after a full re-installation still had crap I couldn't get off! *sigh*
Oh, she is cuuuuuuuute! <3 Also looks really nice with the glasses! And if you like big hips, let me show off my own Elin in TERA with a few of my favorite outfits I have for her! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Oh man, EVE online is way too hardcore for me with everything I heard from it! I saw a documentary on how the top-players/leaders in the game even hold IRL meetings with the staff from the game to keep everything up and running the way it is. Including political decisions and voting for the "civilians". Just...woah!
Because of my slow reply: How was your moms' birthday, did you end up doing something? :) Most of our family birthdays are just a dinner in the evening, haha.
And yes! I visited the High Line and liked it a lot when I was in NY! :) The art displayed there was nice and it was so different from any other thing I have seen! Defenitely a good memory. :)
Oh man I would love a cruise, but they are soooo expensive! D: I don't know if they are cheaper for you, but in general for the price of one cruise leaving from or near the Netherlands, I could go on 2-3 vacations of the same time span, but instead with plane + hotel/appartment... :T
And yeah I know that problem, I had friends flake out on me so much when it comes to (short) vacations and days out. I keep it to my family, husband and most close two best friends only to make sure I don't run into problems like that anymore (needless to say that since I do this, I have dropped quite some "friends"). >.<
Oh man, that sucks. :/ It reminds me that I haven't painted my nails in...ages. I think the last time was for a cosplay I did 4-5 years ago where my nails needed to be red. I like the look, but it chips off too easily and even though I have quite some nail polishes at home, I just forget about them... xD
Made me crack up. xD
Li was quite the surprise to see announced! I'm curious how he will turn out, also the now-announced Edward Elric Nendoroid. On top of that my only "must buy" is also a Nendoroid, while I'm not even that much into Nendoroids?! They are completely on a roll with getting good characters and series for their line!
Heh. Every Wonfes I add a big bunch of items to my subscriptions, but I (luckily!) only have 1-3 "must buys" from each Wonfes. xD I have also been slowing down with collecting and am planning to sell and trade a lot. I don't necessarily want to downsize my collection, but I also don't want it to get a crazy amount bigger.
I'm not that huge of a TMNT fan to buy any of those figures, but the sculpts look so nice... I'm really looking forward to how they will turn out!

Yaho~!

It's not even spam, it's just offers from various merchants. And like, I'm okay with getting an email about a sale - I mean, I do love the bargain bin - but some merchants email every single day. Thankfully GMail filters all those offers to a separate tab where I can check the handful that interest me and mass delete the rest.

Ah that sucks. Just make sure they treat you right, either compensate you for the extra work or even just take care of you. I had a similar situation at an old job and they pretty much refused to do right by me, money-wise or other <_<

I have a few of those gigantic acrylic charms! They're super cute but I'm not sure what to do with them. I could hang them from a bag but I'm afraid of bumping into something hard and breaking it, or scratching it. Usually charms are for keychains but I think something that big is for the spare key you're trying not to misplace lol.

The only other thing I can think of is a problem with the outlet itself...?

I think when they're refurbish they format it so everything is fresh. That was the case with my iPod. If you had a PC and you were going to throw it out, the recommended thing to do is take the hard drive out and smash it with a hammer lol.

Look at the POUTY ELIN :< I love those plum blossom prints and the thigh-highs :9!

I do remember that. There was a player in MS who moved to EVE and ended up at one of those meetings. That's so weird and interesting lol.

Ah~ for mama, we went to brunch, did a little window shopping/real shopping and then went to a movie. Well, they went. I said I was tired and wanted to go sleep, but instead I went and bought some wine and cupcakes and brought them home so she had a surprise when she got home. She was happy and sat on my lap and gave me a hug and kiss (she's too big for that LOL but I went with it anyway)

Cruises are pretty cheap here if you're going to the Caribbean! You have the option of leaving from Florida (very cheap) or NY (more expensive, less departure options) but really you just do the math and figure out what's best. Can take a trip for $400-700 depending on destination, how many days, departure area. The super expensive cruises are either a farther destination or an expensive cruise line like Disney or Celebrity.

You know what's worse? I think the people who would actually follow through on going on a trip with me, are the people I would spend the entire time yelling at for one reason or another. LOL

It's true, it went from "Well, cops can lie too..." to "I don't trust cops." lol

They're on a roll and yet I'm still cutting back on the nendos. I think that, if they're making a single character from a series they should really bulk that nendo up with options. But a lot of one-off nendos are kinda lacking. Cuteness alone can't cut it anymore! I got a forex to worry about! :p

Maakie (10 days ago) #14146613Those Parfom are actually pretty expensive so far, like 5-6K yen. :/ But I really like their proportions and joints. They look like a way more action-figure-ey version of a Nendoroid. And while I think Nendoroids are super cute, sometimes their big heads are a bit too big for me. ;)
Yes, that was what I'm planning! I actually have some leftover plastics that should be safe, but I want to be 100% sure about this or cover the plastics up with something else. Don't want to get sick after wearing the costume for a few hours...
I really really want the legs to be seperately moveable, which is why I'm thinking of tongue/lips. An easier solution would be indeed using my jaw instead, but that would also limit the "leg movement" to only up and down. If for some reason I can't work out making the legs seperately moveable, I think I will drop the possible movement alltogether and go for a mask-only.
Oh, so HE was your favorite! Hrmmm. :> I haven't seen enough yet to say a lot about what I think of the character, but his voice actor being Akira Ishida makes me very prejudiced, hehe. I love his voice, it's one of the most distinctive voices I know. Everytime I hear an anime with his voice BOOM I know it's him. While with a lot of other (famous) voice actors I go like "hrmmm this character sounds like [other character]". I also have a lot of nostalgic feelings whenever I hear him, as he played a lot of roles in anime I watched when I was just new to it. :) My favorite (and most fitting) character for his voice is (in my opinion ;) ) Chrno from Chrono Crusade. What about your favorite? Kaworu or Xellos? :)
Oh yeah, of course scarification can go wrong, but branding, piercings and tattoos also have some nasty problems that could occur! I came across a picture of a "dried out" tattoo a few days ago and it looked uuurgrrghrghrhh D: That person didn't use the cream/lotions you're supposed to apply to keep a fresh tattoo moist + she suntanned a lot (which is bad for tattoos in general).
With bad scarification even more can go wrong! Especially since the created wound is a lot bigger. But it's not like it's 100% bad bad bad unsafe. To find a person qualified to do this, you probably have to search and travel quite a bit. Since you like it so much, are you planning on getting scarification someday? :O
Yeah, it's quite Stockholm-syndrome, in the anime a little bit, but of course in the fanmaterial it's full-on Stockholm, haha! Actually Noah/Mokuba material can be a bit hard to find nowadays. Considering Duel Monsters is "dead", only the most popular characters still get piles of new fanmaterial. Noah is a character that (unfortunately) is not very loved by a lot of people (most people see him as a brat that tries to mess up the relationship of another really popular character). I do have one picture of when I was a newbie cosplayer, where I was Noah and a friend of mine Mokuba. People swooned over the picture back then, you wouldn't believe it, haha! xD Unfortunately, now looking back on it, so much things could have been better. I wish I could re-do that shoot, but half of my Noah cosplay has to be fixed and the friend that was my Mokuba stopped cosplaying alltogether. This is the picture btw: [ext link ] (it's not very popular on my site, but on other places it is, haha!)
Ah, I have 2 starter desks with beginners' explanations of Magic the Gathering, but I never got really into it. Pokémon I played and collected as a teen, but haven't done anything with them for yeeeeeeears. I used to have quite a big collection, though. As for YGO...well, I got into that quite "late", as in: when the hype in the Netherlands already died and you couldn't easily buy cards anymore. I don't own much physical YGO cards, I mainly played the game on handhelds and consoles and had digital decks to play with. I have collected a lot of things, but except for a bit of Pokémon never got heavily into collecting physical trading cards. I did buy a lot of ChaosTCG from Strike Witches a while ago, I think I have 150-200 of them now. But I display them for the artwork. I can't even play the game you're supposed to play with them, haha!
If you decide to start with the YGO manga let me know, I'm curious what you think of it! And who your favorite characters will be of course! :>
Hahah, omg. I had a friend warning me about the "cat episode" and the "pizza episodes" in Code Geass. There are literally 3 super stupid episodes: the one with the cat you talked about, and 2 fucking episodes about a school festival where they are baking a huge pizza (thanks Pizza Hut sponsoring >.>). Pushing that aside, yes Code Geass has a bad start. If it wasn't for friends telling me "it will get better" and me getting some spoilers for View spoilerHide spoileremperor Lelouch holy sheeeeeeeet, maybe I would have dropped it too!
But yeah the best part of the series is defenitely the polital part, which happens mostly in season 2. Without spoilering too much, there comes a part in season 2 where many characters decide to drop out of school...and the series gets so much better after that!!! I love the last part of the series. Maybe that's why I pushed the memories of "happy school festival"-episodes so far away. :P And now there is a new bunch of movies called "Akito the Exiled", which is a direct follow-up from the political situation left after season 2. And from what I heard, it should be very good. I will try it and see for myself!

Ouch that is a little pricey, maybe I will only get one. I guess we'll see how much spare cash I have once they go up for preorder and see then XD Yeah I'm with you on nendos, their proportions are a bit too fat/chibi for my liking.

Oh definitely, if you're going to be having something in your mouth for long periods you want to make sure it's not going to make you sick. That's why I suggested dental plastics, like the stuff that's used to make the plastic part of a retainer. That kind of stuff is easy to clean, too, for obvious reasons... just brush it with toothpaste! Anyway, I hope you're successful in getting a good apparatus working!

Yesssss, I loved him almost immediately lol. I really really wish Volks would make a full-sized non-chibi CharaGumin kit of Xellos, I would buy that so fast. My boyfriend is the one who introduced me to Slayers and Xellos was his favorite too. Actually, their personalities are a little bit similar... they are both nuisances! But I mean that only in the best way.
Well in a choice between Kaworu or Xellos, Kaworu definitely wins, but mostly because anything from Eva is pretty much a win from the get-go. When an anime changes your entire life it tends to stick in every place. But they're very different characters who I love for different reasons, so in that respect I couldn't necessarily choose.

Ahahaha nah I'm not interested in getting any scarification myself, I only like to look at it on other people. There's a tattoo I definitely want to get, but I don't know precisely when I will get it. I want the cyberbrain access ports from Ghost in the Shell that go on the back of your neck [ext link ] . Simple, subtle, yet immediately recognizable to those who know the source material. A tattoo I wanted but will not be getting is an Angel's core in the center of my chest... it wouldn't look right because my breasts would distort the shape, so it's one I've given up on ;;;orz

Yum. I love fucked-up stuff like that. Ooooh, and they're brothers on top of that, niiiice, even better! Honestly if it's twisted and wrong I'm usually drawn to it, I'm terrible lol. Well you might not like things about it now but I still think it's a good picture! Those fancy thrones are really cool. Also not to be a total creep but you look really cute in that outfit, heh.

It sounds like most of the stuff that interests me doesn't show up until 2nd season, that's a shame. I'm not very patient most of the time with anime, if I'm not into it after about 3 or 4 episodes it gets dropped ;;;
