What's the longest you've had to wait to buy a figure?What's the longest you've had to wait to buy a figure?Ask MFC

For example, a rare figure that isn't easy to come by, or a figure that you could never get from a preorder and had to wait until a second release?
For me, ITEM #464608 was one I had been anticipating since I saw the model, and I finally got her this month (so not too long, about a year).

Salty answer is ITEM#604385. GoodSmile, you had a year between the original preorder and release dates. Why was she extended for another 5 months?
First less salty answer is ITEM#118548. I can't remember exactly how long it took, but it was a very long time, due to the fact that I got into the game a little late and could only find people selling him for about £300 for a long time, and I wasn't paying that.
Second less salty, but slightly saltier answer, is about a figure not on this site. The Portal 2 P-Body figure from NECA. No, didn't take me too long to get P-Body initially, but after a while my mother accidentally bumped into my cabinet, P-Body fell off the top shelf she was on (P-Body doesn't have a base, despite having holes in her feet for a base, and the cabinet I was using doesn't have the shelves go right up to the door, leaving a gap between the door and the shelves) and her left arm snapped clean off. I was devastated, since P-Body is tied for my favourite character in Portal 2. My mother promised to replace P-Body when she has enough money to. This was about 2 years ago. Still waiting for that replacement.

I have wanted to get ITEM #157315 since 2001. I don't think it is a rare or sought after figure it's just old so i haven't been able to find one expect for the stupid prices on ebay. Oh well one day.

yurirainbowz1 year ago#577653507 years for ITEM #868
Discovered it in 2010 at the age of 10 or 11. Obviously couldn't afford it, parents wouldn't get it for me. When I was of age to have my own job, it was still out of my reach as it was 400-800 dollars. Finally a couple years ago, found one in like new condition for less than 200 USD. Got it for Christmas. Thankfully it doesn't have the crumbling joint problem :')

I totally feel this! I've been looking for the Misa Amane one for years! It's so expensive but I'm going to get my hands on her eventually (at least I can dream:)

ITEM #98667
Feb 2012 (prototype reveal)-January 2016, I literally thought she would never come home after being in prototype hell and then all the delays.

ITEM #549385
Has been a year now, although she finally got released today.
There's a definite pattern with these

ITEM #343285

Hasebe was originally set to release late 2015 but kept getting delayed with no prototype in sight. Finally released in 11/2018 and I added him to my collection in 02/2019! (I waited a bit for his price to go down a bit since he wasn't terribly hard to find.)

Paid his $500+ price tag upfront in September of 2016 and am still waiting for mine to be delivered to me as of April 2019 >.< He was scheduled to ship in November of 2018 but kept getting delayed . . . Nearly 3 years later I am still down $500 with nothing to show for it as of yet ^_^" I'm hoping to receive my shipment soon!

That's a lot of patience! I'd be panicking until I received my item (I'd panic for almost 3 yrs lol!)
