MaakieMaakie1 month ago
Hello MFC! And welcome to another blog in my collection series! These blogs cover figures from my collection that have been in storage for a long time due to my emigration. I also use this as an opportunity to practice with my new camera and also appreciate the items I have been owning for a longer time!

The figures we are going to look at today:

Kantai Collection SPM Figure set:
x Z3 ITEM #470986
x Z1 ITEM #470984
A random assortment of Fullmetal Alchmist trading figures:

Kantai Collection SPM Figure set

Although they are sold separately, these 2 figures look so good together that they are basically a set.

Z3 ITEM #470986

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705651.jpeg

The bases of these figures always caught some heated debate as they are practically risers. While I personally like it, I can imagine that if you don't have the type of display where these figures can be high up, the bases might be quite obnoxious.

Z3 has a very beautiful face and I love that her hair is semi-transparent.

I also really like the short dress sailor themed outfit!

Z1 ITEM #470984

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705656.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705657.jpeg

And here we have Z1! At first glance a pretty similar figure, but I'll be honest, I do like Z1 more.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705659.jpeg

The expression and hair is very cute! Z1 also reminds me of a mixture of different Strike Witches ENTRY #2 characters.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705660.jpeg

And the best is of course to have the two of them together!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705661.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705662.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705663.jpeg

I am not sure which I like more: Them facing each other or back to back.

A random assortment of Fullmetal Alchmist trading figures

Back when I was hugely into FMA (early 2000's), there weren't much figure offerings for them except for occasionally a trading figure set of them here and there and possibly the peak being this diorama ITEM #13245 when it released in 2005, followed up by this statue in 2008 ITEM #11504 .

So back when I when wanted FMA items pre 2005, what you see below was the best I could get. Internet shopping was back then not really available for me, so they are mostly random pick ups from conventions, anime/comic/game shop visits and such.

There isn't much logic to me showing this assortment, it was a batch I came across while unpacking. I have more FMA trading figures, I think this might be a bit less than half of what I have, I also don't have all of them listed on my profile here because all of them were bought before I made my account.

Without further ado, let's start with:

Maes Hughes - HG Series Hagane no Renkinjutsushi 2 (Bandai): ITEM #3781

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705674.jpeg

I really like how this diorama shows an iconic scene. Unfortunately this is not a figure you should look really up close at. I tried to fix Hughes' glasses, but they are stuck in this position. There also was an attempt at painting the knife.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705676.jpeg

The base of mine seems to have warped a bit over time. Or maybe it was always like this and I can't remember.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705678.jpeg

Edward Elric - HG Series Hagane no Renkinjutsushi 2 (Bandai): ITEM #3778

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705681.jpeg

This small Edward is a bit...hrmm...well, the weird proportions make him look small, so it's accurate?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705682.jpeg

The details on the automail are pretty good.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705683.jpeg

The movement on the coat is also pretty nice.

Maes Hughes - Fullmetal Alchemist Characters (Amada): ITEM #16803

I have a nice memory getting this figure as I went on a vacation to Germany and for the first time ever went into an anime store. The shops in my home country back then would mostly be comic or gaming stores having a small area for manga and anime-related items, so it was very cool back then to see a store that was fully about anime.

I bought a blind box from the Fullmetal Alchemist Characters ENTRY #51848 set and got this Hughes!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705684.jpeg

Back then I remember being very happy with this figure, but looking now...well this figure is something...the skin color, the h u g e hand...yeah... I doubted for a bit if I might have a bootleg, but I still own the original box and it has all the right copyright information, an included trading card etc.

Well...at least his glasses are on the right part of his face compared to the other trading figure I have of him?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705685.jpeg

The uniform also looks pretty good.

Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist Characters (Amada): ITEM #16795

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705686.jpeg

A pretty nice action pose Edward and one of the few trading figures that did not forget the red sole of his shoes!

I am not sure if the silver paint defect on his automail arm was always like that or this deteriorated over time.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705687.jpeg

I like the visibility of his pocket watch.

Alphonse Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist Characters (Amada): ITEM #16798

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705688.jpeg

Probably the nicest of the older FMA trading figures I have is this Alphonse.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705690.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705691.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705689.jpeg

All of his details are there and he has a pretty good face!

________________________________________________________________________________

And one trading figure that seems to be super rare/wanted nowadays

Death Note - L - Nendoroid Petit - Nendoroid Petit Death Note Case File #02 - Tennis (Good Smile Company) ITEM #20473


Back when I was hugely into Death Note (2005-2010), there also weren't much figure offerings out there. I missed out on the original Nendoroid Petit set ENTRY #86258 , so when the second set was announced ENTRY #86257 I pre-ordered two blind boxes from a store that I regularly saw at conventions and picked them up at the next event I saw them at, somewhere early in 2010. I remember my sister scolding me when I came home with these figures and she saw the price stickers on the boxes and thought I paid too much! Nowadays these figures are quite rare and some of these sales prices I came across let me think 'woah, maybe I should sell them', but as long as I don't need the money or space now I think I will hold onto them as I am very nostalgic to them.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705692.jpeg

Compared to how the original Death Note 'full' Nendoroids looked ITEM #746 , these Nendoroid Petits were way better off!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705693.jpeg

I can't remember if he got those white paint streaks in his hair while being on display or they were originally there as manufacturing defects.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/02/2705694.jpeg

He's pretty cute, hehe! I hope to find my other blind box Nendoroid Petit from Death Note soon too!

ManofCulture1 month ago#96370543Ok I know the Kantai figures are them wearing ship-like attachments, but I deadass for a second thought you were showing me girls with ships for asses or for skirts and why wouldn’t I? You’ve already shown me girls with rockets for legs, it’s a natural conclusion after the stuff I’ve seen... from you at that.
More importantly though, RE8 is almost here! Been hearing good things about it too. Just waiting for my collectors edition to come in tomorrow now. Did you manage to snag one Maakie or did you decide to skip out on the CE and get the regular edition instead? Arrgh I’m so hyped!


Well...they are attached to their...backsides. :) Aren't they cuties?

I AM SO HYPE! Waiting for my steam pre-order to unlock, should be at 3AM my time!

Apparently the story mode takes ~11hrs, so should be able to finish it tomorrow. :)
