The Old Question once again: What to get next month?The Old Question once again: What to get next month?Ask MFC

So no sooner than I return to MyFigureCollection the figures start talking to me again.

Already have done a LOT this month and now got a few Prize Figures coming in and my ordered list grew pretty quickly since most of what I had on Pre-Order back when I was bullied off this website I cancelled and now most if not all of the figures that were on order have been released and now have to work out a small list of things to look into over the next month.


Was browsing through the usual places where I pick up figures and a few of the Sword Art Online Prizes that I really wanted have been out and saw one that caught my eye after seeing some good reviews on it and ITEM #760341 was the first Sword Art Online figure picked up this month and I really love the Armor Design for this figure -that's part of why I like that particular Arc of the series is the Armor and Sword Designs so can't pass it up.

Picked up another Fate Grand Order Prize figure ITEM #1103449 she was on my Pre-Order list months ago so had to pick this one up to add to the Fate Collection, I love dark skinned characters.

Finally decided on getting ITEM #945049 since I LOVE Stacia's character design and this was the first one that caught my attention and then put ITEM #1122027 on Pre-Order for September.

Decided to also get a Sinon that I liked and had on Pre-Order months ago ITEM #1145475

Now looking at August's plans for collecting and finding there is no need to look at a lot I'm still down to 2 things that keep coming to the top of my list of figures to get.

What's caused me to have this old question pop in my mind again?

I want to do less next month, the objective is to focus on 3 main figures or 2 figures to pick up or decide if one will do the job depending on what character is picked up.

One of the main things I want right now is ITEM #836935 she was another one I had on Pre-Order that I cancelled after that bullying earlier this year and now that she's out I can find her at a few places and I want this Temari figure for the collection to go with the Splash Tsunade that's in the collection.

I just love this Temari figure and need another Sexy Ninja in the collection, Temari's one of my favs from Naruto.

The other item that I want is this ITEM #603997 but can probably put that off till September and get it off Amazon [I end up getting a Amazon Gift Card every year for my Birthday so tempted to use that on Cui then]

I would love to get this Tsunade figure ITEM #848415 after getting the Fate/Figuarts Zero this one looks pretty cool.

I've already got 2 main things on Pre-Order in August:
Walmart Exclusive Ghostbusters Retro Exclusive Ecto 1
Transformers Netflix Sparkless Seeker

Also have the Quintessential Quintuplets Season 1 Manga Set on Pre-Order too so working on reducing how much Manga I'm getting too since I'll end up with a huge pile of that very quickly at the rate I'm adding those to the collection.

Gotta get more of the Quints series Manga after that Set arrives since when I get Manga I do read through it pretty quickly.


So the objective for now is to focus on fewer new additions.

Whenever this question pops up it's a headache for me but feels good to have the old pros and cons mental debate over a particular figure.

Working to cut back on new additions and still enjoy the Hobby and enjoying what's gotten in a month's time instead of always looking for something else. Been trying to make August a No Spend Month but at best 1 of these 3 figures selected fits within a small set budget for that month so it's down to deciding on mainly Temari or Tsunade.

SebastianLover8 days ago#98551106I mean, I'm totally biased for Fate, so I'd say Lancer.XD However, my real answer is get whichever one speaks to you the most. Put up listings for all 3 side by side and scroll through them. Whichever one pulls you the most is the one you should prioritize since that's the one you want the most. This is my way for picking which figures to focus on of the many figures I want.

When the bullying happened that made me quit Anime figures cause it enraged me so much I cancelled all my pre-orders Temari and Lancer were among the last few top priority Scaled Figures for me at the time.

With my Primary Collecting Focus on Fate I'd get Lancer in a heartbeat next month but since I still love Temari and she's one of my very old favorites feeling that nostalgic urge to get some of the older characters I love like Temari and Tsunade so I may end up getting Temari next month.

Tsunade looks great but I'm drawn more to getting a Temari for the collection at the moment.

If you can't endure a no-spend month, why not set yourself a monthly allowance instead? That way you'll still be able to order things, but you'll have more money to put into savings, or toward a high dollar item later on.


Just focused to do less, got a lot of figures this month so along with my pre-orders for August which are just 3 things right now trying to get it to where I'm happier with one or two new figures added to the Anime collection next month.

I'm tired of getting a lot of packages so working to convince myself that maybe one main figure is good enough for the next month.

This month isn't over with and still have a few packages coming in and by the time those all arrive may not feel the urge to get more so I've lately been on the edge of a potential no spend month but never achieving that due to one or two or a few things popping up so I just want to get to where I can appreciate everything I get and not be so fatigued from everything since that's what is driving my desire to do less.

Less is simply better with me and while Prize Figures are affordable whenever some scaled figures come up it's the price that always has this question come up:
Get a few Prize Figures of characters I like or get a nice big scale of a character I like or mix it around with 1 scaled figure and maybe 2 or 3 Prize Figures.

I can afford it just tired of getting a lot of new things right now.

I don't plan to get anything except for ITEM #1235564 when pre-order go up later today. He's one of my favourite characters and he hasn't gotten official merchandise in well-over two years, so this is a must have to me.

I think my August should be clear! I look forward to see what you eventually get. ^_^
