    gwendal738-2 (11 months ago) #50531809On that note though, my regret has definitely been ITEM #622869 this Hitorijime acrylic keychain. I saw it for preorder on HLJ back then but I was like "Meh, I'll wait for the stock on AmiAmi" but AmiAmi never got it in stock, and when I went back to HLJ to buy it, it's all gone :( I'm STILL looking for it to this day. TuT;
    I found one here!

    I waited ONCE to buy an item I wanted. It sold and I haven't seen it again. Still regret it, especially since it was like $10. If it's something I really want, I will buy as soon as I see it now.

    My general rule is that if I REALLY REALLY want it (like 'it haunts my dreams and I will not rest until I get my grubby mitts on it' levels of WANT), I will buy it immediately. If it's something that I know will make me feel sadder than sad if I miss out on it/don't get it, then I just buy it (granted it's a reasonable price ofc - I wouldn't spend my life savings, for example, on ANY figure no matter how much I want it because in the end, it isn't a need like food or housing or car bills).

    But if it's something that's just "oh I got some extra moolah in mah pocket rn but I saw something super cute on AmiAmi preowned the other day", that one I really REALLY will think about. I went through a phase of BUY EVERYTHING and while I don't regret any of my purchases, I also don't think that method of collecting is sustainable, so that's when I think about things and not regret letting them go if they happen to have been bought out by someone else.

    Judging from the feelings you had for these things, I'd say the next time you feel dat tug (and know that you will likely cry - I've been there too - if you miss out on it), just buy it. You worked hard for dat money, spend some of dat to make yoself happy, gurl ;) You deserve all the good things!

    Atm I guess I have just two Items I really want but bad luck haunts me

    ITEM #743420 I saw it ocne pretty cheap on yahoo, decided to buy it another time cause Puzzles go for cheap right? well.. wrong this one seems to be rare and I could only find it for much money OR right when I am broke!

    the other one ITEM #645849 exclusive Can badge from Jump Festa 18 it went a few months ago for 900 yen... same issue: was broke right at that moment.... never saw it again so far Q_Q

    and this cushion: ITEM #442872 Even a friend of mine was keeping an eye open for it for months but we simply never saw it online at all :/

    usually, if theres an item I know I WANt really bad and it's up for cheap and I have the funds at that moment - PURCHASE! Cause I regret several times not buying an Item and then search for ages...

    oof weve all been there lol
    the item i think of the most is ITEM #141411 .. i had initially seen her up for auction & had full intention of buying her, but for some reason i waited to place my bid? i lost her and it took me a year & 1/2 of daily searching to find another.
    if theres something i want & im able to, i buy it. at this point, i already know that the instant its not available ill feel a huge regret.

    It happens often... and you know what, I no longer care. The reason is simple, there is so many figures I deem interesting that I can focus my attention on something else. That said, I recall waiting almost 10 years to get my hand on a figure I didn't but when I had the chance. I thought all hopes were gone then... pop, it was there again!

    The only figure I still feel bad not having purchase when I had the chance few years ago was an old Narusegawa Naru Cheeleader figure ITEM #48830. It is a rare variation of her, an old cold cast... I'm probably the last Narusegawa fan still standing on Earth! ;-)

    I know how it feels. In your case, you waited too much, but in my case I was impulsive :(
    Last year, I got obsessed to get ITEM #327295. I only buy figures from internet, because there are less chances to get a bootleg (even though this figure doesn't have any counterfeit version). I ended up buying it for almost 100USD including shipping in the first website I found it in stock. Days later, I noticed that the same figure in other websites was like $40 without shipping.

    I learnt a similar lesson the hard way before. Once upon a time I was saving for my RAH grail, ITEM #227374 back when they ran about 30-35k. It was a lot of money but my birthday was coming up and I found one around that price on YJA, I told myself ok I'll wait a few more days for my birthday, they often popped up for this price back then.
    It was gone. I waited and waited for a new one to pop up, and suddenly they only started selling in the 60k range. And the price only went up from there... so I had to give up on my dream of getting one, it still stings.

    Now I remember the wise words:

    I regret every figure that I didn't pre order when they were up for pre order that I truly wanted because afterwards their prices went high af and becae unaffordable.So I learned my lesson.
