50 figures on order: What's the most you've had on order?50 figures on order: What's the most you've had on order?Ask MFC

Well looking through a lot that I got yesterday I've got about 50 figures on order and most of that came from the Gundam Gashapon lot that was picked up, got at least 2 figures on Pre-Order a few Prizes and there are 2 Action Figures for the Transformers Collection on Pre-Order on Amazon so pushing upwards of at least 50-53 figures on Order at the moment.

Still surprised at how much Merch is available for Gundam Seed/Gundam Seed Destiny and feels like if there was a way to make me tired of adding figures to the collection this is a way to do it getting a huge lot of Gashapons at a great deal and it's made me reassess my plans for the rest of the month because once this Collection size hits 500 it's pretty much done and I was already hitting 400 so this adds a lot more to the collection.

The reason why Gashapons were picked up MFC is that I've exhausted my searches for new merch and going back to the older figures was the last remaining step, after picking up most of the older figures it's getting close to where finishing up with collecting Gundam is a priority for the rest of the year.

Wasn't planning to do a lot this month but as always when things like that lot come up I just can't resist it especially snagging it at an awesome deal.

In the time I've been here on MFC I have NEVER had this many things on order and never snagged a huge lot like that Gundam Lot that was mentioned in my last blog.

How many figures have you had on order at any time since you started collecting Anime?

Still just surprised at the size of the lot the more I go through looking there it feels like I have to search the database to find those items and it really is surprising to see how much Merch/Goods are for Gundam in this database.

Adding that lot means that Mobile Suit Gundam is the main series that makes up a bulk of this collection.

The remaining items on my wishlist may get added to the Ordered section before the end of the week, after that I don't want to deal with looking at any figures for quite a long time if I can.

How many figures do you have on order at any given time?

Right now is the most I've ever had on order because I just recently got into the hobby!
I've got 12 figures on order. A good variety of prizes, PUPs and scales.

I think it was 8 or 9 and I highly doubt that I will ever have more than that on order. I'm mostly collecting statues now, because figure prices are at the same level now. If it isn't something with a crazy big detailed base, some of these 1/6 resins even cost less than PVC figures in that scale. For the price of 2 you can get an awesome 1/4 scale statue, so... PVC figures don't seem that interesting to me anymore. I'll make a few exceptions here and there, but I feel like you get more value for your money. Only downside are shipping costs. I still stick to my rule of not ordering anything I couldn't afford at the point of ordering, so I gotta save up more money, especially because it's unclear how much shipping will cost until it's ready to ship.

I think 16 and they’ve been that way since pretty much last year. I’ve only recently began getting them sent to me after all the delays. Have 2 more already in stock at Amiami, but I’m just waiting to see if the last figure paired with them is going to release this month or get delayed, my moneys on delayed.

Also damn 50 figures? That’s crazy, couldn’t be me.

Lovely lovely Lacuses! Gundam SEED/Destiny were the first Gundams I watched (and two of the very first anime, when I was 10). I'm still so attached to Lacus <3 To be fair Gundam SEED/Destiny were so so so big and popular when they came out, so the sheer amount of merch there was means there's inevitably going to be a lot that's been stored and lasted, but it's pretty cool to see, the series is getting close to two decades old... You never hear people talking about it these days, that's for sure.

With older characters like that it really does get difficult to get good merch for them, so if the character matters to you a lot then you have to be willing to get trading figures and so forth. And for those, lot buying is definitely a great deal. Came up a lot for me when I collected Pokémon trading figures. Congrats on your haul!

Good thing MFC has a mass collection manager, right? :)
