2015: A Year in Figures2015: A Year in FiguresDiary

Hi everyone!
I noticed that everyone was doing something similar to this and I thought since it was my first year ever collecting figures that I'd join in! Just a warning, this will be kinda long!

This is also my first article, so bear with me. (´。• ᵕ •。`)

This year started off really slow, but eventually I started ordering a ton at a time as the year went on so for this I'll just post my favorites for each month!

During January, I found out about Mandarake and decided to place a small order to get my feet wet (RIP to my future wallet). From that purchase came my very first three figures!
(ITEM #197919, ITEM #36124, and ITEM #36123)

In February I ordered this a week or two after my birthday. I couldn't decide if I wanted her but I knew that Godoka's Figma price had gone up since her release so I took the plunge!

Shortly after ordering her, I saw someone I follow on twitter post a picture of their Homura nendoroid and I saw that she was still available on Amiami so I immediately ordered her without a second thought. What's more, I actually got Godoka's nendo to go with her for Christmas finally!

March was bigger than I've ordered before but also smaller than the months to come! My favorite has to be this cutie! I actually purchased her from a fellow MFC user (my first purchase on here!) and I'm glad I got her when I did. Unfortunately I'm still on the hunt for a decently priced Satsuki. One day... one day.

April was a tiny loot as well. I had ordered Kotobukiya's Ciel last month to go with Sebastian who came out in April and is also my favorite figure of this month! I was originally just going to buy Sebby but who is he without Ciel? So naturally I just got both. They had to be my two most expensive figures thus far.
Also, I hate the stupid platter that Sebastian is supposed to be holding. I can never get it right so I don't even display it >_>

May was where things started to get... out of hand. I remember getting the Amiami box with all of these in it and just starting at it for a few minutes, amazed with how HUGE it was. I actually missed the maillady earlier that day and was kinda sad, but she came back to try again because the box was so big she didn't want to have to bring it back. Lucky for me. (╯✧▽✧)╯

I definitely think Alter's Asuka and Wave's Chitoge were my favorites out of this month!

June was a great one for me! I got a bunch of favorites like ITEM #158153, ITEM #236424, ITEM #166946, and ITEM #269760

http://i68.tinypic.com/2h3wuit.png

I absolutely adore Alter's Lloyd and my Megahouse stuffed Agumon (who is stil in the box because I'm terrified of dust) the most out of everyone here though. I actually almost canceled Lloyd last minute but I'm so glad I didn't!

July was the first month without my full-time job so I had to start cutting back on my preorders. I only got a few figures this month and my favorite was easily Alter's Celty. I love her so much and she's still one my favorites now! (please excuse my bad picture, I couldn't get a good one v.v)

August was exciting for me because it was the month that Figma Lucina was finally released after months of delay. Fun fact, she was actually my first ever preorder back in January (thank GOODNESS I ordered her when I did). It was also really exciting because of ITEM #287781, ITEM #198355, ITEM #287164, and ITEM #236248. It's hard to chose a favorite but I'm going to have to say Shizuo because I love him so much. ♡♡♡

September was great because of two figures: Alter's Rin (MY LOVE) and Megahouse's Itachi (AHHHHHH). I got a few others but they don't even matter compared to these two. Definitely two of my favorites of the month AND the year.

October was a lot smaller than my past months. I purchased Koto's Vash the Stampede but honestly just forgot he came out in October because I kept him in my private warehouse for so long and just got him recently. ;v; Unfortunately, I haven't even taken him out of his box yet because I'm waiting for more stuff to arrive so I can do a loot post. Let me tell you, it's so hard seeing him in his box everyday knowing I can't open him yet. I HAVE TO BE PATIENT.

We're almost at the end now! November was small and only just three Nendos which are ITEM #287743, ITEM #323689, and ITEM #287726. I haven't actually received Raiden yet (Loot post!) but I really love Miku and Mako. My Mako actually arrived a little broken and I had to go through the stress of trying to get her coat replaced. Thankfully, GSC was nice enough to send me a replacement so now she's perfectly fine!

And here we are. The end! December! Surprisingly, the only two figures I actually bought this month were ITEM #287710 and ITEM #314603 which I don't have in my possession yet (LOOT POST). Most of the stuff I bought were various straps, keychains and THESE TWO BABIES: ITEM #293572 and ITEM #361460 !!!!!!! AAAAGH. I can't wait any longer for them to arrive. Highlight of my month honestly. CAN'T WAIT.

And that's it! My first year in figures.
Here's to 2016 and all the money I'll be throwing out the window... especially on these girls ITEM #292668
and ITEM #287855. Totally worth it...

I hope you guys had a great year as well and have an even better 2016! Thank you for being apart of this awesome community and sharing this crazy hobby with me. (*˘︶˘*).。.:*♡

MC7075 years ago#5729448How do you do this? I am the opposite, I want to open my figs but I just can't, especially my favorite ones. I feel like I'm desecrating them or something, though I know if you pay for such expensive items you might as well use (display) them.
Nice collection by the way. Crazy how many figs you got in a year. Been almost 4 years collecting but I have to be selective because of space! Darn boxes


AHH I could never keep them in their boxes! I just really love looking over and seeing them all on display, it's such a nice feeling!
And thank you! I'm surprised I was able to get this many and I'm glad I did! DARN BOXES indeed! I'm already running out of room again after making space a few months ago. The struggle ;v;

LunarSkye5 years ago#5726910Wow, you weren't kidding when you said you got a lot of stuff this year! (*゚◇゚)
You did amazing for your first year! I wish I could buy that much in a year... (T▽T)
I love your Homura figma! I've been eyeing that one since she was announced, but I decided to get the scale just because (*´∀`)
And the Ciel is absolutely gorgeous! Are you going to get Grell to finish off the line?
Ah, the Harvest Moon Miku... I really wanted her but I ended up missing the preorder window with my luck... ( ;∀;)


Thank you!! I wouldn't have been able to order this much if I didn't have my FT job the first half of the year ;=; I'm so thankful though! I really do wanna get Grell and the Undertaker sometime to complete the set! Hopefully soon *fingers crossed*
Thank you again for reading u.u

So many figures for a first year, you got some pretty nice ones though. :)

I also started collecting this year, but I got far less figures, and I still bite my lips when I think about the amount of money I spent on them. But was worth it.
