December 2018 Additions: What have you gotten so far?December 2018 Additions: What have you gotten so far?

TyjosAzariTyjosAzari3 months agoAsk MFC
Well this month started off with getting a few things in mail and right now working on the old self restraint since I've got about a week to go before I can resume getting a few things for the collection.

Ended up getting the Fate Grand Order Shielder Figma ITEM #396894 at the start of the month and managed to find space for it so now working on deciding on what figures to pick up next week for the collection.


This was the first Figma added to the collection in what feels like a year or more after getting rid of all the Figma I had during one of the collection cleanouts last year so now that Shielder is here I'm considering picking up more Fate series figures this month and right now my focus for collecting this month is on getting more Star Wars and a few more ships for the Battlestar Galactica collection after the Colonial Viper came in last month.


Managed to find shelf space for Shielder with the other Fate figures here so finding shelf space for new additions will be hard since my main shelf is full and between Star Wars and Transformers it's hard to find display space for new Anime figures on this side of the room.


A few small Star Wars items arrived earlier this past week more Hotwheels Starships and a Black Series 6" Poe Dameron X-Wing gear figure.


Just waiting for Star Wars Volume 5 to get in and after getting Graphic Novels in for the comic collection may be focusing on expanding the Star Wars comic library later this month too.

Started to work on getting Model Kits assembled since the small stack of kits had to be packed away to clear floor space and since I want some more I needed to start working on assembling the ones that are here so ended up building one of the kits that came in last month ITEM #119841 that was a quick assembly that took a few hours to assemble so I think I'm getting energy back that's needed to build kits so that's a good thing.

After getting that kit assembled I'll be working on getting ITEM #690526 this month since that one can be found locally here and it would be nice to get back to assembling Master Grade kits next year.

Currently my focus for December is to pick up some more Star Wars and Transformers and it's been a while since the last scaled Fate Series figure was added to the collection so looking into picking one to get for the collection.

ITEM #576708 and ITEM #604069 are finally on the list for this month and been watching the prices on both of those go down since they were released so chances are Jeanne will be added to the collection this month.


Focused on acquiring more Black Series Star Wars figures and those can be found fairly cheap and a lot of the ones I'm after are in case assortments or lots so may be another month of adding more Troopers to the collection and looking to get Bespin Han Solo and the Black Series Kylo Ren Centerpiece for the collection.

Still looking to pick up the Vintage Collection Rogue One Imperial Assault Tank since the price on that one has been dropping and that will be picked up first thing next week.


There is a new line of Transformers out the War for Cybertron Siege figures and currently the Leader Class Shockwave from the line is on the top of the To Get List this month so that will be added in as soon as it's released since I'd love to get a Shockwave that will fit in nicely with the rest of the Leader Class figures in the collection.


Still focused on getting some more Figma for the Fate collction and this one ITEM #603994 is on the list for this month, hopefully this one can be added to the collection this month.


The Main objective for this month is to get the Eaglemoss Battlestar Galactica 2004 Galactica ship to go with the Viper, there is another Colonial Viper to pick up along with a Cylon Raider so this month will be another month of shifting between Anime and Scifi stuff for the collection.


Along with being focused on ships still focusing on getting some Kotobukiya Art FX Star Wars statues and going to try once again to get the Dagobah Yoda ITEM #79277 that's been on my list for years and pick up ITEM #28180

Lots of things out there getting my attention this month and going to try to do a little bit less this month if I can but chances are that's not going to happen but if a few things I'm after get picked up it will be a nice way to finish off 2019.

I'm glad that my energy for building model kits is coming back and that means I'll spend more time working on assembling them over the next few months so the collection's size will grow more due to adding in model kits every few months from this point on so next year's main focus for collecting is Model kits.

Not sure what will be the last addition to the collection this year but it's getting to that point where ITEM #604006 may be the last addition for the year.

What have you gotten so far this month?

This is a good month for me, so far I've received ITEM #762082 and my very first (and probably only) dakimakura (slightly NSFW)
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://i.postimg.cc/59spJgPT/53044.jpg

A good friend of mine bought me ITEM #33918 for Christmas so she should be here before the month ends. And then there's ITEM #644645 if she doesn't get delayed.

The very last figure for this year (and probably next few months) came this month, which was ITEM #464652 . Now I'm waiting for ITEM #769589 .I do hope he makes it here before Christmas but he should come till end of December.

The only two other items I got weren't for myself. I got a Servamp rubber strap for a friend's birthday and ITEM #479435 for my brother to Christmas. Money is always tight at the end of the year, so I got most of the items I hoped for earlier this year c:

A good portion of my orders have come through pretty quickly, including two of my pre-orders that have been delayed for entirely too long (ITEM #593300 and ITEM #591632). So glad they have finally arrived and are safe! This is my first 1/4 scale bunny girl, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm really happy with the quality.

Most of my Black Friday orders are in, including ITEM #330768, ITEM #415013, ITEM #581579, ITEM #538429, ITEM #549500, ITEM #656560, ITEM #670417, ITEM #656307, ITEM #604801, ITEM #604800, ENTRY #160870 (complete set), Aqours' Happy Party Train tour in Saitama BD Day 2 edition (NID), and an array of cute plushies and mascots (NID).

I also received the final anime gifts I ordered for my boyfriend for Christmas, ITEM #702023 and ITEM #236251. His other gifts are cooking gear which mostly haven't arrived yet. He also ordered me ITEM #639940, which arrived and is even cuter in person.

I made a trip to Goodwill and discovered ITEM #620100 (packaged with a Neopet plush, which I may have given to my dog), as well as a few Shoujo Beat manga. This is the second time I've found official Pokemon Center plush at this Goodwill, so I'll definitely keep popping in to check.

As for storage space, I think we've still got plenty, though there isn't much room for additional Detolfs at this point (we have 5). We have a whole apartment to display the collection in, and I really enjoy coming up with new ways to use the space effectively, especially since I dislike cluttered displays. I'll be in the market to buy a house in a few years, and one of my requirements is that it has a large space that can function as a game room that fits a majority of the collection with space to grow. If my collection outgrows my current home before then, I'll just store some of it until I have the space. I'm really looking forward to being able to display everything exactly as I want!

I've only had one December item. That's ITEM #464748 . It looks like that will be my final item of the year.

The last month have been heavy with several Dollfie acquisitions: ITEM #282533 , ITEM #126414 ,
the head of ITEM #122999 , and
ITEM #76159 . I say only last month because most of those were bunched up at the end of October. That was enough but November also had ITEM #648577 shipping in it along with a bunch of Dollfie Dream clothes most of which are unlisted here on MFC.

So, for me and my personal financial level, it's been an expensive end of year.

Currently I have no outstanding pre-orders scheduled to release in December. I don't think there will be any further Volks Dollfie oriented orders for the remainder of this month either. I'm done with 2018.

I don't have any display space left. It's once again time to reconsider what I want to display. Currently things are more than a bit of a mess. The secondary display shelves are just sort of random. The Macross Valkyrie display shelf is cluttered. My desk is home to 4 Dollfie Dreams, a scale figure, 3 Macross Valkyries, not to mention my laptop and assorted junk mail I haven't disposed of yet. This cannot continue. Things must find their proper display spots, and if they do not have them, then they need to be stored or discarded.

I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with mass market Hasbro/Takara Transformers collecting. It's not because of any disappointment with the figures. It's just that I've more or less acquired all the Transformers characters I wanted. I'm tempted by the new Shockwave mold, but I'm more than happy with my FT-03T Quake Wave.

I've been a bit tempted to start getting some Star Trek character figures. I recently found a Quantum Mechanix 1/6 Spock for sale, and I have to admit I'm tempted to pick one up as an upgrade to my decades long lost Mego Spock. I've also been tempted to pick up a Playmates TMP Admiral Kirk figure to replace the old Mego Admiral Kirk I had as a kid. And then there's the Polar Lights 1/350 K'Tinga model...

One of these days I need to get a replacement Mego The Black Hole V.I.N.Cent figure. He was a cool little guy. He's a bit pricey on ebay for a loose 3.75" figure, though.

I got ITEM #549439 from my boyfriend as an early christmas gift and oh boy I love her so much! She is soft to touch and so gorgeous. I really love Tamamo and this figure is awesome. I always eyed her but she was too expensive for me so that he bought her for me was so awesome!

Also ITEM #651234 arrived today. Kamina is the best!

AmiAmi just shipped my November order yesterday, so it hasn't arrived yet. I'll be getting these when it arrives: ITEM #59190, ITEM #651234, ITEM #765645, ITEM #765646, and ITEM #755164.

Fortunately I didn't have anything delayed to December, so my order for this month is empty aside from ITEM #768973 and ITEM #768974, which will probably be the last things I receive this year. I have ITEM #724610 arriving from GSC but since it's shipping out on the 26th it'll probably reach me in January. I also have ITEM #675925 coming at some point from TOM but there might be a small wait time since the US warehouse receives their figures after Japanese retailers.

I should *hopefully* be getting ITEM #464229 and ITEM #711986 tomorrow though, depending on how the post wants to behave. Otherwise it'll be on Monday. ITEM #593300 Just shipped for me today via EMS, so I should recieve her soon. ITEM #633912 was also just shipped, but via airmail and I'm still waiting on ITEM #675700 to ship, hopefully tomorrow. If I'm lucky those two will arrive before the end of the year haha.

I also have a handful of other figures releasing this month, but I'd be very surprised if any of those arrived before the end of the year. They'll just have to be a new year surprise instead lol.
