January 2021: Your Biggest Item in your collection?January 2021: Your Biggest Item in your collection?Ask MFC

This past month a few large items have been added to this collection and after the large Star Wars Rise of Boba Fett Exclusive Jango Fett Slave 1 arrived it has me looking around at the larger items in this collection that are now standing out like small landmarks in this room and it has me thinking about how many other collectors get huge items into their collections and how often they get them.

Managed to find a parking space for the Slave 1, the Black Series Snowspeeder,and the AT-AT Walker three large items added to the collection this month and over the years as a collector the largest items that end up in this collection always end up being Star Wars vehicles or Gi Joe Vehicles.

After getting in a lot this past month it's getting to where smaller items are preferred and now don't want to get large scaled figures.


Right now the biggest item in this collection is the Voltron Mattel Collector Club Voltron Set that's the tallest figure in the collection, the Gi Joe Defiant Launch Complex is the largest item that takes up the most space and ITEM #44543 is the largest Mecha in the collection.

A few of the Batman vehicles are pretty big too and it's getting to where collecting vehicles is pretty much finished up because those take up the largest amount of space here.

The Slave 1 Takes up all the space on top of this display case and right now that's where it will be displayed.

Managing to find space for these large vehicles and items takes a fair amount of time after they arrive and a lot of rearranging so I've managed to find space for all the latest additions and it's getting to where it's another main reason to stop for a while.

ITEM #34540 is a large scaled figure so that will take a bit of rearranging to find a good space for that one when it arrives later this month and I prefer 1/7th or 1/6th scale Sized figures so should be able to find a spot for ITEM #946016 when she arrives later this month too.

Between collecting scaled figures,starships and models the biggest items are always the Starships or Starfighters.

After getting the last Zoid on my main To Get List ITEM #24151 that will be displayed next to the Blue Blade Liger so it's going to require some more rearranging.

At the moment ITEM #117206 is my biggest scaled figure and I love this one, the bladed weapon is huge too and that takes up a little bit of space on the shelf where that one is displayed.

So what about you?

What's the biggest figure you have in your collection?

What's the biggest item you've recently added to your collection?

My largest figure is probably my 1/4 Kay bunny figure from Girls und Panzer.

I collected many smaller figures like trading and amiibo first, so I have much more to look forwards to.

SebastianLover12 days ago#90154774I actually mostly use ebay and Yahoo Auctions. I'm usually late to the party with releases, so I'm forced to use resellers, but prices aren't usually that bad secondhand and some ebay sellers do pre-orders. For licensed statues, you can order from prime 1 studios, first 4 figures, and figurama directly.

Awesome, thanks!

SebastianLover14 days ago#90027029Most of my big figs are unlicensed resin statues, some of which are back-breakingly heavy.^^

Currently the largest one I own is ITEM #486552 standing at about 19 1/2 inches tall. Later this year though it will be ITEM #756849 at 23.4 inches tall (supposed to come this year given covid doesn't delay it)

The biggest I own is Kumiho by Pullip (ITEM #767532)
She's about 32 cm tall with her base.

And in person she is much better than the official photos she has.

As of right now, it's ITEM #464669. I thought Chii would be the tallest, but Jalter is still 1 inch bigger. No wonder I can't fit her in any cabinet I have D:. Even the figures I have on preorder aren't bigger. ^^;. I honestly think Jalter's size is my limit, as well, as I honestly don't have space for anything bigger than her.

So far it’s ITEM #871530 and ITEM #549512
(Bought the second one cause it was on sale) now I hope I can save up for the first one cause I am still “eh” about dropping $1,745 on the last bit of her deposit
Ah well I will when I get all that money for it and I will be regretting it and not at the same time afterwards

My biggest figures are ITEM #464829 and ITEM #549493, the former because of he4 height (and her general width because of the gonfalon) and the latter mainly because of her hair and pose.
