Another diary for myself this year, read if you want but it may be long!



ꕥ Figure Additions

Added a lot of figures to my collection this year, even more than last. I’ve been collecting for a while but most of my collection has really been from the past two years (2021 included).

ꕥ Figure Orders/Pre-Orders

I don’t know why I didn’t add this section last year, but here it is for this 2021. Again, this list is in a spoiler since it’s pretty long (most of it consists of Demon Slayer figures lol). These have all been (pre)ordered either this year or last and I’m still waiting on them, but it’s basically everything that has yet to come.

ꕥ Figures Sold

After 6/7 years of collecting, I finally sold my first figure this year! By now, I’ve sold 14 figures so far and currently have a list of 36 more up for sale. Honestly I’m planning on going through my collection again and adding even more to the list to get rid of.

This was the first time I went through my entire collection and looked at what I really appreciated and what I didn’t care for anymore. I was really hesitant on selling anything for the longest time but after finally getting rid of some prize figures, I realized I didn’t miss them at all and it was actually pretty refreshing to get the money and space back. Pretty much every figure I got rid of/have yet to get rid of is a prize figure so clearly I have to hold back on impulse purchasing them.

ꕥ Other Merchandise

Wanted to add this section again since, while it’s not figures, it’s still relevant. Just like last year, almost all of my extra spending went towards figures and not really anything else but I was still able to get quite a bit of merch to add as well, though not nearly as much in relation to the figures. I have no idea what wall scrolls I added this year so I’m not even going to bother adding those. Some items are multiple but not duplicates, every individual item is different.

A lot of the merchandise isn’t official or on the database, but I still love to collect it. Pictures of most of what I got this year:

ꕥ Shopping Habits

Like last year, the majority of my collection this year was bought from Tokyo Otaku Mode, mainly because of the free shipping over every $150 spent (for most figures) and money back. Been on the fence about not using TOM due to their higher prices and shipping methods (which cause everything to get delayed by months) but the amount of money I’ve saved on shipping is the main thing keeping me a premium member on there.

Otherwise, I made my first purchase from Mandarake this year! The site is interesting a little difficult to navigate but a good source for figures overall. Unfortunately the shipping prices were insane and doubled the prices of what I ordered on there. Because of that, I ended up not buying a lot and even cancelling a few orders so I just stopped using it.

Also got banned from AmiAmi this year :( Made too many purchases that doubled in price after shipping was calculated and backed out on them. That’s another huge thing keeping with me TOM: the payment method. I found out a lot of people actually prefer the “buy now, pay later” method, but I absolutely hate it considering the stores don’t factor the shipping prices into the initial quote. Shipping prices always ended up being way too expensive and the amount of cancellations I made got me banned so that sucked -_-

I also made my first purchase from Favor GK this year, a resin statue/figure site. Got some recommendations from users on MFC and reassurance that it was a legit site so I made a few purchases from there, most of which have yet to actually arrive.

I made a huge purchase on eBay, my most expensive purchase yet actually. Bought an unofficial Rengoku vs Akaza resin statue from Hero Belief Studio for $1,200 total after shipping. This was a huge gamble because of the amount of shady sellers on eBay, but I took it anyway since I was desperate for this thing and couldn’t find it anywhere else. I only took the risk though because of eBay’s new policy where the seller won’t get paid until the item is delivered to the buyer so they wouldn’t really benefit from ripping me off. Plus, there obviously aren’t any bootlegs of this thing since it’s unofficial anyway so it paid off in the end. It ended up being my favorite thing I own to date so I was extremely happy I went for it.

Another purchase from Figurama Collectors as well: ITEM #990676. Super excited for this one since Dororo is one of my favorite shows!

Finally, I bought a number of figures from sellers on MFC again. Thankfully I still haven’t had a bad experience with anyone on here ripping me off so fingers crossed that that luck keeps up. I did have a few sellers sell something to someone else before I could make the payment but after I had already inquired about it, but thankfully no issues with payments. Made a list of everything I got, though it’s not in order.

ꕥ Collector's/Limited Editions

While I didn’t receive any exclusive purchase this year, I did make a pre-order for a limited edition resin: my Figurama Collectors purchase, ITEM #990676. I’m actually still waiting for ITEM #756849 to come in which I ordered from them in 2020 but has yet to even finish being made. I also ordered some more resins from other sites that are limited in quantity but all of them are unlicensed so they won’t be on this database.



꧁ ꧁ ꧁ _ _ _ _ _ _ ꧂ ꧂ ꧂



ꕥ Room/Display Changes

My collection has finally outgrown my bedroom this year! I have a pretty large bedroom but my collection has finally gotten to the point where I can’t properly display it all inside it so I’ve bought a large cabinet for the hallway for more scales.

What it currently looks like:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/30/2960945.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/30/2960946.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/30/2960947.jpeg

I’m currently working on trying to get more shelves for the pre-orders I have coming as well, since I still need more space. I don’t have a solid goal for what furniture I want to get yet, like I did last year, but I know I need more space. I’m also planning on making a shrine! I’ve always felt weird about shrines but after falling in love with Kyojuro Rengoku, I knew I wanted to make one. I’m super excited to get it put together, though first I have to find a designated spot to make it (then I have to actually wait for the rest of his merch and figures to come in).

I did not complete my room this year like I had planned to do last year. My room changed a lot since last year but I still have a corner to finish, my gaming corner. I had wanted a PC but I’m not sure how realistic that is anymore, especially since I’ve been thinking about how much I’d actually use it. It’s still a possibility, though I’m mainly focused on getting shelves up in that corner and setting up all my gaming figures there. Other than that, my room is pretty much exactly what I wanted. I have two spaces that I’m waiting for resins to come and a few more figures to rearrange but I’m very happy with my room overall.

It makes me really happy to read that ITEM #18450 was your favorite trading figure! :) It's also a very cute display you made for her!

Also nice blog! I would like to do something like this as well, but I don't document everything I buy/sell in a year that well. ^^''
