    bambipie (7 days ago) #65388109I don't want to comment on this as it has been an ongoing fight/discussion for years.

    ddarko (7 days ago) #65388090While I can live with this, I always found it funny that there is such a rule. The site name is essentially My Figure Collection and not My “Japanese” Figure Collection.I don't want to comment on this as it has been an ongoing fight/discussion for years.

    ddarko (7 days ago) #65388098Speaking of the amount of figures that would increase if all of them were allowed, I am not sure it is that much higher than the number of non-figure entries that occupy MFC right now. You have entries ranging from towels to small badges etc. Those things, strictly speaking, aren’t figures too.
    But yea, there are many times I find some figure on AmiAmi and try searching it up on MFC to see photos and comments, only to find there is no entry. It’s like this site is so in love with Japan that the standards even surpass the tastes of Japanese buyers lol. I can almost picture a MFC mod smacking a Japanese buyer saying “why are you buying that stuff that is not from Japan? Those things aren’t even figures.” Haha.


    I've heard mods describe this place as a database for Japanese otaku culture, so I think the rest of the items are totally fine to have on here as well. They can't keep expanding it. The rule is fine for that. MyFigureCollection is just what it started out as, and it's still sorta the main thing I'd say.

    Over all I think it's alright.

    And I don't think anyone would go that far as to slap someone. :p

    CloudKingdom (7 days ago) #65388091Yeah, I can live with it too. The influx of figures of all types would be insane if it was allowed. But it's sad in those few cases where there's actually something that ticks all the boxes of the aesthetic and it can't be here. :D But oh well, can't loosen up on the rules for just a few items. ^^,

    ZoidsFanatic2 (7 days ago) #65388095It’s funny that the character is in the database (I think it’s her) as a Nendoroid. Same reason the Girl Frontline characters can sneak in under the Nendoroid line but God help you if you add the Hobby Max figures.
    But the whole rule debate has been a thing going on for years. So at this point, I’m just kinda going “eh” on the whole topic at large.


    Yup, found her too so was a bit disappoint the scale wasn't there. :p

    Yeah, I wasn't looking for a discussion on that tbh, lol. It was actually mostly if APEX was some Chinese manufacturer that I never heard of cause I knew the game was Chinese. But I was crossing my fingers that someone might just have missed her and that she at least had SOME Japanese ties, haha.

    bambipie (7 days ago) #65388081Non Japanese Origin not allowedShadMaria4ever (7 days ago) #65388079She was on some of the other sites earlier than AmiAmi. But it's Chinese game with Chinese manufacturer.
    inasa (7 days ago) #65388082its between APEX and mihoyo — im about 90% sure APEX is a chinese figure company and mihoyo is the chinese company behind the game. MFC doesn't allow figures from non japanese origins. non japanese companies are allowed if they make a figure from a japanese originated source. (i.e: myethos's celeste figure)

    Mhm mhm.. :| Guess I'll have to keep her outside my MFC collection. :D
