About

Welcome to my page!

I'm Architect and designer, fallen in love with Japanese pop and traditional cultures, enthusiast of mangas, anime, and of course, figures.
I started collecting in late 2018 with GSC's figure of Kurisu Makise, the very first character that attracted me into the rabbit hole of figure collecting.

I am always glad to meet new people in this friendly community so, feel free to talk!
Sorry if I make some english mistakes.
~~~~~~Best shows: Steins; Gate and Evangelion

Best characters: Kurisu Makise, Rintarou Okabe and Asuka Langley.
Yeah, I love tsundere's with red hair!
~~~~~~My collecting rules, to stay as picky as possible:
- Focusing on scale figures, mainly from 1/8th to 1/6th
- Only figures of characters I know and I like
- Only one figure per character, except for a few favourites
- Focusing on figures faithful to the character's look in the source material or official arts (with some exceptions if I love the design)
~~~~~~Next to anime figures, I also own some models of vehicules from french/belgian comics, lithographs, aircraft desktop models, Art Deco objects and film cells.

Hi Archiwheel,

sorry I am writing here, I don't want to spam her pictures more than needed.
Good to know, I am not the only one waiting for payment. It seems unlicensed resins are always gamble. I will wait week or two probably before reaching them for info.

Btw, love your set up, so spacious and clean. I like more minimalist display with a lot of space between figures too. Reason why I am displaying always just part of my collection at once. As I don't have that much space to display them all.

It has to be great to be your own architect.

May I ask why you're fixated on UC's Yui instead of something like Alter's?

Hey Archiwheel!

First of all, I just wanted to say I really like the way you take photos, especially for Asuka and Rei :)

Well, to answer you, she had some really noticeable casting residue, as well as unpainted teeth, cheeks and overall very messy paintjob everywhere.

Here is how she was "before":

Asuka is pretty nice too! I can see why you and so many others like her!
Hmm... not a bad idea!
Which one of her figures do you think looks nice?

You played a big role in getting me to finally watch some Evangelion!
I came out of it with an interesting pick for my best girl though!
