About

Hi everyone!

Feel free to chat it up with me. :D I'm comfortable having conversations in any subject matter. Of course, being on MFC, I like collecting figures. And just like with almost everyone here, I love anime and playing video games.

My favorite anime of all time is Cardcaptor Sakura. The dubbed version aired on television when I was 10-11 years old. It is the anime that got me into anime although I didn't know what anime was at the time. Then came Yu-Gi-Oh! dub came along when I was 12-14. I love this show and became completely hooked on the Trading Card Game. I was introduced to the world of anime by my friends in High School.

I bought my very first figure on eBay item #1151 in 2006 during my freshman year of college. I was watching Bakurestu Tenshi at the time and Sei's character design completely attracted me. I still didn't know about figure collecting. Then in 2007, I bought item #583 Very eye catching figure. I'm not shy to say I love the female body. Inoue Takuya is one of my favorite artists so I just had to have this figure. This paved the way to my interest into figure collecting and starting buying figures on Amazon. I lost interest in anime during my years in college because schoolwork and internships were keeping me busy. Also, I got my souled sucked into the World of Warcraft. My roommates in college got me in WoW because they wanted more bonding time. Played it for 3 years.

I didn't start becoming an avid figure collector until I graduated college and got a full time career at the end of 2011. Which then I started to pick up anime again because I had much more free time at night. I joined MFC in Q2 of 2012. That's when I discovered stores like Amiami and Mandarake.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my boring life story!

redxmaverick (1 day ago) #21494988From what I hear, it has been very rare to see Kirito in aftermarket so far. But when one does appear, it's like 150k. So it seems the people who have won him have kept him.
Maybe after I see him in person, I will decide.


Sounds like a good plan! And if you don't like him you will have no problems selling him :D

redxmaverick (8 days ago) #21292665I won Kirito and Asuna. Uh oh. What to do. lol
Even though I have Blood Knight Asuna, I think I may sell Kirito.


And already decided what you will do? :)

redxmaverick (10 days ago) #21179720It's not easy to sell in US but I know how super hard it is to sell in EU.
I was about to sell 3 figures to someone on MFC but they wanted to do layaway. I said they could pay me in 3 months. One figure per month. Kept saying "I really want to buy them. I will pay them all at the same time in 3 months." Every month buyer said that. Then 3 months pass by and the buyer ran away. I should have learned from DD to do a nonrefundable deposit for the first month and do the same for figures.


I already thought about selling them for really cheap or give some of them to friends. There are some friends of mine who would deserve a small present. At least someone would own the figure who would appreciate it more that I do at the moment >____<

Wow... That is was an horrendous seller... Three months of waiting for nothing :/

redxmaverick (10 days ago) #21179680If I bought Guts, it would probably be the last figure I'll ever buy. Maybe I should do that. The figure to end all figure collecting. I've already sold more than 20 of my figures this year too.

Sounds like an idea if you can really resist to ever buy a figure again :D

I have been thinking about selling some of my figures as well... but selling really is not easy >___>

redxmaverick (11 days ago) #21179661I see you couldn't resist ordering the Prime 1 Studios Guts. lol

Yeah... He was just to perfect >___<

Now I just need to resist other scales and save the money for him. At the moment going well xD
