    Ohh heyy you have a neat collection✨I'm a new collector as well! So I have small amount of figs. I used to like vocaloids. My favourite was Miku, Kaito and Gakupo! I only have one kaito figure for that fandom tho x'D so he's lonely hahah I'm into onepiece for now. I understand your feeling, I also see my collection as not that interesting

    Oh my god, that's a pretty big haul for a pretty good price lmao
    I hope you can sell them well! you'll probably have an easier time selling them all in a bundle rather than separated by series.. but then again i've never bought/sold VHS tapes so maybe i'm not the best person to give tops on that lmao

    Though I do have one tried and true word of advice that does come from experience; ebay's prices are not the most reliable, as the sellers there often overcharge by a LOT. When you're buying figures, there are many better sites with better prices that you could check out first.

    Personally I buy most of my stuff second hand at japanese yahoo auctions and i got some very excellent deals in the past. Granted you have to use a proxy (i use zenmarket) but it's a small price to pay.

    Oh yeah, we've been teaching her so far to not bite us when playing, and so far she hasn't tried to jump on my figure shelves seeing as they are off the ground quite a ways, she's way more interested in the book shelves so far

    Okay so, my parents and I when i was younger used to garage sale, a lot, I dont do it as often anymore now that I'm living on my own, but when I was 14 I found a huge plastic tote full of VHS anime for like $15, I picked it up and proceeded to never watch them and still have them 5 years later. I plan on taking them out to my parents this weekend and trying to get rid of then for a somewhat fair price, but I think I'll list eva on Ebay for $150 since that's what I saw the full set on vhs going for last time.
    I added it up and theres about 30 series in this tote, and quite a few of them have multiple vhs' in a series haha, I remember a few months back I calculated prices for everything based on current Ebay listings and conditions on the boxes and it was about $800 worth of vhs tapes because some of them are really rare.

    I think the strangest thing i found in that tote was a small metal box containing some older Lego figures but I'm unsure what series they're from, however judging by the plastic helmets it was definitely before they started making thicker plastic helmets, so maybe early 90s, but before the 2000s definitely, my gf who loves legos ended up taking them off my hands so I didn't have to spend literally hours combing through catalogues to try and match them and then find current price listings ;;
    Really i just dont have the room for these vhs tapes anymore, nor do I really want them, I'm fine with my sailor moon vhs tape because I really enjoy sailor moon and thought it was kinda cool to have as a drop background for whenever I'm able to get figures of the sailor scouts, but I only know like 3 series on this huge tote and I'm not interested in keeping them at all, I'm legit thinking about listing it as a lot for $300 +shipping just to get it off my hands because it's taking up so much storage space we really need ;;

    Aww they are precious!! ;v;
    That kitty still a baby, you could definitely teach her not to jump on your shelves!
    I didn't have to try much with my cat I just raised my voice a bit and said her name in a commanding tone and eventually she got the memo lmao

    Here's better photos of my princess;

    And omg how did you end up with all of those tapes??
    I've seen Akira and Eva personally. Both are definitely fantastic but a bit too brutal for me. I love Eva a lot for its overall aesthetic and style and I have mad respect for it just for its general influence. I think I might've been too young to understand it when I watched it, but now I don't really feel like watching it again because I know how dark it is and I just ain't about that nowadays lmao. Real life is enough of a mess so I just want to have fun with my escapisms.

    I mean yeah Jojo gets pretty brutal at times but it's also batshit insane so at least I'm having fun when I watch the beatdown happen lmao

    Also I feel, it takes ages for me to actually take on something on my watchlist, I have a nasty habit of rewatching things I've already seen several times instead of watching something new.

    I didn't even notice your cat at first, they just blend so well into the picture I completely overlooked them!!

    Also that's super interesting?? I really dont have half a clue what most of the vhs tapes even are, I only have a vague understanding of ghost in the shell, Akira, and Evangelion ((which I also have all the vhs tapes of for some reason???)) Eva, Akira, and Ghost are definitely on my watch list I'm just lazy and hardly ever get around to the anime on it and 50+ horror movies I have to watch as well ;;

    They are related! All of Macross was created by Shoji Kawamori and happens in the same universe.. well, all except Macross II which was kinda disowned lmao
    Macross Plus chronologically takes place a little bit before Macross 7 and was released at roughly the same time. Aesthetically every Macross is quite different in style and genre, personally i didn't like Plus as much because it was a bit too serious and too much of a drama for me, while 7 was much more playful and fun (and had like, WAAAY better music)

    I have a cat as well (you can even see her in my second photo lmao) and she used to want to jump on my shelves, but I eventually managed to train her not to. Though, I definitely understand why you'd want to keep your grail as safe as possible because, oof,, that's definitely A Price

    AlienEmoji (11 days ago) #65389428I think this is a really cute startup collection, your grail figure looks especially gorgeous!!
    I have my collection split by themes as well;
    My first spotlight is on Macross 7, which is one of my two favourite shows;

    (basically my entire work corner is a macross 7 corner lmao)

    There's a LOT of various merch I have of Macross 7;
    art books, music CDs, some pencil boards, a few keychains, a music box, a collector's coin + phone card, a few figures (sadly Basara, my favourite character, doesn't have much merch so that's all the figures he got, and I own multiples of some), and an autograph by Basara's voice actor, Nobutoshi Kanna! I also have two posters and 5 original animation cels <:
    Macross 7 was basically my biggest focus in my first year of collecting, but now I pretty much ran out of merch of it to collect.
    My second big shelf is for, of course, my OTHER favourite anime; JoJo's Bizarre Adventure!;
    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/AlienEmoji1564850357.png
    My favourite character here is Kakyoin, hence why I have a little army of him, and I am also a huge "fan" of DIO, who holds the special honour of being my first and so far only obtained grail - the big RAH DIO.

    With JoJo I only have figures for now, plus one light novel which is basically written as DIO's diary. I'm planning to get at least one volume of Jojonium eventually (the one that has Kakyoin on the cover), and I'm hoping to save up for the Jojoveller (a HUGE art book)
    That's the big ones!
    My other shelves are for some minor collections, namely (and I apologize for terrible photos);

    and some other Macross stuff
    https://i.ibb.co/r65rzBG/m7.png
    I also have a tiny Fullmetal Alchemist space (with a cameo appearance of Asuka), which stayed small because there aren't enough Greed/Ling figures. (And in general I just don't find many FMA figures that appeal to me, I guess Arakawa's style is a bit hard to nail in figure form)
    https://i.ibb.co/vBgjg86/fma.png

    I don't have one of them fancy ikea glass shelves that seem to be pretty much perfect for figures, partially due to me not really having and space for one, but also because a glass shelf wouldn't suit my apartment's more woody decor. Instead, I have this lovely shelf to keep my figures and books in order;

    Yo you just reminded me of something in a vhs collection I have I'm unsure if the series are related but I have 5 vhs tapes of Macross plus
    https://serving.photos.photobox.com/073675851b50911bc35d965b1ec1b8294eaf3f3a05d5aa98af7e4ac2fe8803b9665e91e4.jpg looking at the aesthetics they dont quite match up but hearing the name macross 7 made me do a double take and remember about all these old vhs tapes I have hidden in the back of my closet because the title is very similar,

    I've been sitting on like 30+ vhs tapes of old anime for literally over 5 years now, and just can never bring myself to sit down and list them on Ebay.

    But your collection is really cool!! I'm hoping once I'm able to i can get some detolf shelves that hang on the wall, my partner and I have a kitten and I'd hate for her to knock on of my figures down, especially my holy grail because she's now going for over $600 on Ebay,,,, though I've seen as high as $900 for her unopened ;;
