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.

My goal for collecting is to focus more on a few main points, the following are planned:
- Mecha Musume: Humikane Shimada older works --> Sky Girls --> Strike Witches --> Kantai Collection (mainly Fubuki and Abyssal Girls)
- Baccano!
- Chrno Crusade
- Horror collection (horror anime/games related items: mainly Calne Ca, Kotobukiya Bishoujo, Silent Hill and Resident Evil)
- Moetan and POP works/designs in general
- Yu-Gi-Oh! (Original series and Duel Monsters)
- Nurse Witch Komugi
- Everything from Futaba Anzu!
- Hideyoshi Kinoshita (and maybe traps in general)
- Myuutsu/Mewtwo items
- Military moe / Girls in uniform (such as more from So Ra No Wo To, Girls und Panzer etc.)
- Hello Kitty to Issho and cute loli's in general!
- Make itabags for the series/franchises where I collect way too much small items from!

Things I still need to do for my profile:
- List all the games I own (didn't even start yet)
- List all the artbooks I own (work in progress)
- Try to make it look better/personalize

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)

- Multiple grab box blogs
- Lilith cosplay walktrough
- Review of item #264881

Maakie (6 days ago) #17560786Hello! :)
For us, there is always a big new-years-millionaires lottery and it's a tradition that we buy a lottery ticket, watch the TV show and hope we become rich in the new year. View spoilerHide spoilerI didn't get rich this time. :'D
Ah, maybe it's my English but you mean it's a good or a bad thing that there is a 4-hour movie at a convention?
Tampopo seems very interesting, thank you for pointing it out to me! :)
Hehe, that is a very interesting read and break-down of what happens in that scene! I also think it's really about the differences in culture here. In the Netherlands it would be seen as "rude" when you are in a group and one person decided to have a one-on-one conversation with the waiting staff instead of the people he/she went to the restaurant with (ordering different food wouldn't be a problem, though).
Btw, I had to laugh during the scene when the low-ranked employee said "one moment please" to the waiter and all the higher ups turn to him with a face showing "what the heck do you think you are doing?!" xD And yeah, I guess you can interpretate the scene in a lot of different ways. To me it comes over as the low-rank being very enthusiastic about eating higher class French food, so he doesn't want to comply to the "rules" of everyone on the table ordering the same thing. I can imagine this being a very expensive restaurant too (private room and such). Something he normally couldn't pay for by himself. You just feel the uneasiness when he orders quite extensively and the others are dead silent at the table.
Well, I have though about it, but never made a cake or snacks for a fictional character. It seems like a lot of fun though, especially when your favorite character has an official birthday! :) And yes, after some pictures you just eat all that delicious chocolate cake and cookies yourself, haha!
I did send a letter or e-mail to favorite authors and artists multiple times! :D Never got a reply unfortunately (even with the ones where I asked help from someone so I could send them in Japanese). But then I imagine those pictures and those popular artists getting that amount of fan-mail, so I can understand. :')
Haha, Yoshinori Ono always looks crazy, in a good way! :D He looks like a lot of fun to be around with. I can imagine a lot of people wanting selfies with him haha.
GSC is making some amazing Ajin figures...it's just for me that the current figure market prizes make me a lot less interested in buying. Figure prices went up in the last few years and thanks to a job switch, my income went down. So I'm way more careful where I spend my money on. If I had unlimited funds I would have bought those both Ajin figures as I'm really enjoying the series (almost done with watching S2 now). Btw, Ajin is fully Japanese spoken, English subbed on Netflix! :O I actually don't think there is an English dub (yet)? In the small anime-market we have in the Netherlands we barely get dubbed series, all of the anime we have on Netflix is Japanese spoken too.
Ahh yes, I have heard from multiple American friends that July 4th fireworks should not be missed! :D Anyway, it's nice that you still had a small display of fireworks to watch during new years! :)
I tried, but I have such a hard time navigating the Urban mines on Mandarake. :( They barely work with character/series names, so you really have to 'mine' through pages full with pictures of items. Then also a lot of them are lots with multiple items, which means I would only keep a few items from a lot and would have to trade/sell the rest...and I already have way too many things I should get rid of, lol. Anyway, if you have a golden tip of how to browse there or how to find the perfect items for you tastes, I would love to hear! I'm very interested in the mines, but can't deal with how it works right now. :(
Omg, if you have vines/videos/gifs of that I would love to see them, they would be amazing for the panel! I already crack up at the Pochacho pad one with her butt getting "shaked" hahaha.
No matter how popular an anime/manga/game is, it's still hard to imagine people send piles of gifts and cards for a fictional character. xD I think it's cute, though! But you're smarter if you eat everything yourself like we spoke about above. xD
Oh~ I've been thinking about looking into Mystic Messenger. It became so popular in such a short time, it must be good???

Salut!

I think if you won I wouldn't hear form you for a while... everything from celebrating to planning would come before posting about it on MFC lol

It's fine, at the movie theater the longest movies are usually 3 hours, a screening is a smaller audience but I do have a personal paranoia that either I'll have to use the bathroom or I'll get a seat next to someone noisy/fidgety. Though with screenings the audience is usually a lot more... mature and quiet.

The teaher who showed us this clip had a habit of manipulating media to make his points about life in Japan (though the points he actually made were correct). It's true that harmony and group life are important there, but not to the point that I'm going to be the outcast if everyone orders burgers and I order chicken nuggets. But at the time, I saw the red-faced company staff and believed him. When I was able to watch it again at home, I saw the same red faces, but they were hanging their heads in shame and embarrassment. I can understand Maki's blog about the generation gap her father experienced but at the same time... here in the US they say men don't like to ask for directions or read instructions. So I think of that. If you go to a French restaurant and can't read the menu, well... actually the first question is why did you choose to go there? LOL
The second is why not ask the server for advice. If you don't want to look completely un-knowledgeable you could ask if there's any kind of special recommended menu item. I think even the server would have preferred that. I notice he looked unimpressed as he took all those identical orders. LOL

But yeah... even if he ordered his own meal, I dunno how I feel about low-man in the group ordering fancy wine on the company tab!

I think the closest I have is picture #1506211 Free Macaron day is when shops that sell macarons give a free macaron to everyone and any macarons sold that day go to charity. So I strolled around the city collecting free macarons, then I gave them to Sonico :D
(Then I ate them)

Closest thing I can think of is when I sent an email to a Youtube chef I follow asking about a particular recipe. She actually responded and said she was out of the video making business as she was getting old and her daughter co-host moved away and got married. Some time later though, she posted a video with the recipe!! She kept the camera on her hands only and her daughter helped her narrate (they talk Q&A style) so perhaps she got her daughter to record and edit it all together. I was so happy! But I also wondered, if I sent a thank you message would she remember it was me? Or perhaps she got multiple requests?

When I used Urban Mines I pretty much narrowed down the category as much as possible because searchign doesn't help. Most of those items are completely unnamed and untagged. I saw some good stuff though, likeNative'S bathtub Sonico and Myethos' Alice. Also goods in batches of random stuff, which is hard to tag, but some of those goods were filthy like "just throw that out, guy..." also boxes completely unmarked. Like a one-item grab box, what the hell is in it? A mug?

Damn, browser almost crashed on me. But here: [ext link ]

Mystic Messenger is SO much fun. And it's only been out for half a year, I'm surprised. But in reading about the game stats they've reached 1 million users, and donated $100k of profits to charity. In 6 months!

Maakie (4 days ago) #17608132Oooh, dat is wel erg cool~ Zou dan alleen de daki niet durven te gebruiken, though. xD
Tsja, het is toch een mooi kwaliteit print op goede stof en een niche product...vandaar de prijzen. Als je goedkopere wilt, kan je kijken naar die van Great Eastern Entertainment, maar die vind ik persoonlijk een stuk minder mooi dan de Japanse die ik bezit en gezien heb.


Die ik nu heb en dus beneden 6000 yen zijn allemaal echte japanse goede kwaliteit geen magazine freebie kwaliteit of fake xD zijn gewoon goede deals op mandarake geweest :) mja sommigen zijn wel wat minder dan de ander omdat de meesten van louise ouder zijn toen was de kwaliteit nog niet zoals nu

Nee dit zal 1 zijn die ik absoluut niet ga gebruiken nee :p ben al paranoia met wat ik nu heb

Maakie (7 days ago) #17551755Ja, ik heb pas ook gehad dat ik bijna een 10K daki kocht en me net voor de aanschaf stopte...het is toch wel erg veel en diegene waar ik interesse in had, had ook dat de tekening gedeeltelijk "gekopieerd" was op de andere kant (met een variatie in de art).
Die gesigneerde daki klinkt erg speciaal! Als in, een characterhandtekening? Of een handtekening van een castmember van de boeken of anime?


Vooce actress kugumiya rie en kostte 8000 yen. Ik hrb 1 daki vsn 10.000 yen maar uiteindelijk gekregen als keretcadeau van mfc member :) is mijn favoriet en goedkoper gaat ze niet worden..
Mja dit zijn uitzonderingen, de rest wat ik hrb is allemaal <6k en kwaliteit speelt ook een rol. Die taiga die je stuurde is niet geweldig goede kwaliteit voor die prijs zijn er betere tsiga covers mja 10k zal ik nooit weer uitgeven ben tbh blij dat ik die als gift kreeg want had spijt en wou verkopen omdat toch best duur was.. Toen ik dat zei kreeg ik em omdat hij niet wou dat ik het verkocht.

Mja 10k is vrij normaal voor de meeste covers (helaas)

View spoilerHide spoilerMaakie (12 days ago) #17424102Ah, sounds likewise to me, haha. Since we bought a house, we had to invest in a lot of new items and also repairs for the house itself. Collecting is still important to me, but I'm a lot less active than I was before. Once all the repairs and buys have taken place, I hope I am more settled down and I can start hunting for items for my niche collections again! :)
You're currently not buying any new items either?


Yeah currently saving to move into my own house with my partner so we dont have to rent.
I have not really bought anything lately, there has been not much that has caught my eye~

How about you bought many new figures?
