bakainu0916 (6 days ago) #2419458Whoaa, 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


Yeah, haha! It's quite a good and bad thing, lol! But on the other hand it's also very useful, because everything is boxed now, so otherwise I would maybe get confused about which items I was planning to make a review from etc. xD

I think leaning doesn't happen that quickly, but it's also related to a lot of factors~ How good the quality of the figure is, the climate you're living in etc.! Personally I want to display and look at my figures, so when I live in a biiger place next, I will display all of my collection again like I used to do previously. :)

Oh yeah cleaning the dust of figrues not in cabinets/detolfs is horrible! From the moment I got my first cabinet, I decided to never put figures out of it again, haha!

bakainu0916 (9 days ago) #2413198Actually 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


Hrmm 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

bakainu0916 (11 days ago) #2409408Thanks 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


No 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

bakainu0916 (14 days ago) #2404630Nice tower! xD
I haven't experienced such a thing, though. I ever moved into another house but back then I was collecting comic books and because of budget problems (I was 12), I didn't buy many and all of my collections were packed in one box. Box's size was similar to yours in that picture. xD
Honestly I can't imagine if I have to move out with all my collections now. Some scale figures have huge boxes. It will take a long time to pack all of them. :"D


Thanks! 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!

bakainu0916 (18 days ago) #2397252Yep, I think I just need to see the good side that actually my parents are just worried of my financial management. I think that's all parents do. xD
Totally agree. I remember my early days of collecting, I was thinking, "I want this and that, I want all!" But now, I really think twice before ordering anything. I guess running out of space is one thing that caused this. ^^;


Ah, for me I was running out of space, but another big eye-opener was that I moved twice in the last 3-4 years and because of that I had to pack and unpack so much stuff...then you really start thinking about the amount of things you have collected over the years...

I'm now living in another temporary home and I don't plan on putting much of my figures on display. All my figures are currently in boxes, which are all stacked (prepare yourself):

It would be great if I can sell some of my bigger figures, as that would mean less boxes to move when I go to my next home. xD
