Do you collect a ''type'' of figure?Do you collect a ''type'' of figure?

Hi guys! ^^

Just wondering, do you collect a specific type of figure?
Do you collect only girls/boys, sitting on couch figs, characters you like, bunny styles, only form 1 series, only of 1 character, nendoroids, figmas, RAHs, resin statues, garage kits, a specific scale, only from 1 company, only 1 colour or whatever it is, I'm curious!
Some people have a certain collecting style that is noticeable right away so I wanted to ask.

For me, I have a mixed collection from different series, different characters, multiples of many characters, some figures that I don't even know/watched the origin! Sometimes I just like the whole design/colours/beauty of the figure and can't help but to buy. It's like a piece of art that I love to have. Like these, ITEM #331645 ITEM #42026 ITEM #113211 I don't know a thing about them but they are so pretty!
I tend to buy different figures of the same character as well, I have 11 of Asuka Langley ENTRY #1553, 9 of Louise ENTRY #1675, 7 of Hitagi ENTRY #1525 for example. Some of the characters I have x6, x5, x4 I can't help it.. I don't have any figmas, dolls, cast off/+18 and gk's(don't know anything about them)

Anyway.. So, do you collect a certain type of figure or do you have a style? How do you maintain that collecting style, why do you choose to do so? Does it make it easy or hard to pick or find figures?

Thanks for reading and answering! ^^

I'm strictly Figma. I can see the appeal in both Scales and Nendoroids but I like my figures with maximum movement. Plus, the small size helps the shelf and keeping people from getting the wrong idea. If it was a scale they'd think I'm worshipping some 2d character but if it was several Figma figures they'd understand. After all, before they could see my shelf of Figmas upstairs, they'd see the detolf full of Gunpla downstairs first. It's kind of a strategic progressive way of how to get people not weirded out by your hobby.

I used to collect school swimsuit figures and kneeling figures at some point, but right now I just try to make things look nice together, no matter the pose/whatever as long as I like it and don't make my showcase crowded

LOL, I collect scale figures only and most of them, actually 90% of them, I don't even know who they are. I added them to my collection just because they are pretty or cute or look very attractive to me. I don't watch a lot of animes nor am I an Otaku but I have an obsession for anime and anime waifu figures. buying them and collecting them keep my stress from my life away. Also, I am very pitcky on the Quality of my figures so I tend to purchase mostly from reputable companies like ALTER, GSC, Max Factory, Flare. etc.

I have actually tried to watch some anime because I wanted to purchase a specific figure from that anime, but even though I like that figure a lot as it is very impressive and beautiful but I did not like to character at all after watching the anime so I gave up my purchase LMAO.

take123 (17 days ago) #53286117I basically only collect bunny figures. And they're all 1/4 size... I usually like to go to Wonfes every year to see the new releases for this type.
Quite expensive hobby and space is a big problem. I think I may have taken wrong path in life...

For now, pretty much scale figures of my favorite characters. I have mostly girls right now, but I'm aiming towards balancing it out buying more guys these days, like ITEM #540469 which I just received this morning.

I collect figures of characters I like. As long as I like the character and the overall look of the figure, I'll get it, be it nendoroid or scale figure.
