About

Noot noot!
I'm a 25-year-old Canadian currently living in New Brunswick. I dabble in a lot of creative stuff on the side, mostly drawing and writing. I've been playing around with figure photography a bit too, and photography in general, really. I also listen to a lot of music and am trying to make my own too. I... do a lot of very unrelated things, apparently.

Je parle français! N'hésitez pas à venir me parler, ça me fera plaisir! Les gens qui parlent français semblent bien rares ici...


About my collection and its history
I started collecting figures in 2014 after a friend I had at the time convinced me to finally get into it. I always collected some sort of toys and character goods since I was a kid (think Pokémon toys, Yoshi plushies, etc.) but due to various reasons I wasn't into these fancy (compared to what I owned) figures yet. Said reasons were mostly financial - this hobby doesn't come cheap!

I used to be really into into poseable figures and Nendoroids, but I lean heavily towards scales now and almost exclusively collect those. Exceptions are rare. I keep my collection small, because I much prefer having a small collection I fully enjoy every part of, rather than having a huge collection I only enjoy a small part of. I made the mistake of buying everything that looked cool when I started collecting... never again!! Now I view my figures as art more so than something to collect in the traditional sense of the word, which eases the pressure of feeling like I need to complete entire series or get stuff that matches or whatever.

Except for maybe 3 or 4 figures I'd never ever ever sell, I don't have immense attachment to what I own, and don't hesitate to yeet something on Ebay when I get tired of it or to get extra funds for traveling. My figures have helped take me on quite a few trips!


Series and figures I like
I like collecting Nintendo stuff, mostly Yoshi, Pokémon, and Mother/Earthbound. When it comes to Pokémon, my favourites are Sceptile (my top fav), Vaporeon, Latias, Spoink/Grumpig, the Porygon line, the Horsea line, and... the Substitute doll... so I focus on those more. I also love the game trainers, so Koto's line of scales is right up my alley - I started out wanting the full line but it got too big, so now I'm just aiming to own a figure of every trainer I've played as.

I love plushies too, but I'm picky about what I buy; I like smaller but well-made plushies. Pokémon Fit has been a blessing to me! I also have a couple handmade plushies that I love. I do sometimes splurge on big plushies, though - see the lifesize Vaporeon in my collection. I used to have a lot of bootleg Pokémon plushies bought from what I thought was a trustworthy store in my city... I ended up giving them away to friends with kids or who didn't mind that they were fakes. The only one I kept is a shiny Sylveon named Trent Reznor. lol

When it comes to figures overall, I like musically inclined figures, to match my main collection: records, tapes, and CDs, as well as merch from my favourite bands! And yes, before you ask, I do love Vocaloid, though my favourite is Megpoid GUMI - I have a small collection of merch of her, and a few albums featuring her. I'm also fond of Splatoon for its musical/artistic aspects - I've only played the game a handful of times...

I love the work of CG artist Deino, creator of Calcium (Calne Ca), so I collect figures and such of his characters. I like gore and body horror stuff in general. If there were figures of any of Junji Ito's stuff I'd be all over that... I'd like my collection to reflect that interest as well.

I'm also fond of Shishiou from Touken Ranbu, who I jokingly refer to as my sword husband. He's the character I allow myself to go all-out for; I have tons of his merch and I'm always on the lookout for more! Sadly he doesn't seem that popular, so he doesn't get as much merch compared to more popular swords... my wallet isn't complaining, though. Due to space constraints I can't display my full collection, but someday I'll have space for it again.


A bit more about myself
As previously mentioned, I'm pretty big into music. My big thing is industrial, but I also love metal, prog, new wave, and vaporwave and vapor-adjacent genres. Truth be told, I'll give everything a try at least once! I love collecting physical albums - vinyl for the stuff I love and the music where an analog medium benefits it, CDs for accessibility, cassette tapes for the aesthetic. I also buy a lot of band merch and go to a lot of shows. You know that crazy dude who blows like 300$ at the merch booth at every show he's at? That's me. I'm the guy. I'm a sucker for coloured records, LED-printed tapes, and weird band merch.

I also travel a lot, mostly for concerts. I'm an honorary Chicagoan now. Traveling doesn't come cheap, though, especially since the airport where I live isn't a major one (I'm planning to move to Montréal partly to resolve this), so I don't get to go to that many shows for now.

Outside of that, I draw and write a lot, play around with photography, and I'm a plant dad. I grow succulents and a few other houseplants year-round, and plant a veggie and herb garden in the warmer seasons. You probably figured this out when I mentioned a veggie garden, but I also love cooking - I actually did it professionally for a few years, but moved away from that for health reasons.

Interestingly enough, my line of work probably has me handling some of your figures - I work for our national post here in Canada! I love what I do, and it's super cool seeing how the postal system functions! The funny thing is that I got into this line of work because of my figure collecting. The person who ran the outlet where I originally worked saw me a lot (due to me picking up/sending a lot of parcels) and grew to like me... she gave me a chance and let me try working there, and I eventually got the job at the plant thanks to one of the mail dispatchers who'd bring the mail to the outlet. Pretty cool, right?

Great seller and communication. I've got a GSC pre-order figure from her. First time buying from mfc seller for a pre-order. Highly recommend!

GodlikeSascha4 years ago#12751207Heyo! I think you might be the first to actually have read my entire profile. xD
The headphones I'm talking about are these ones: www.head-fi.org... Not extremely expensive compared to a lot of other models out there, but they're my most expensive pair so far. Their sound is great, but the bass can be a little lacking - it doesn't bother me, but it sounds like that's something you'd probably dislike about them since you love having lots of bass in your music.
Sounds like you have some nice setups though! I'm hoping to get myself a proper sound system soon, but first of all I have to fix my record player... The needle is broken, so I need to find a new one, but that model is at least 30-something years old, so it might be hard to find. I'm really stubborn about fixing it and not wanting to just get a newer model instead :p Right now it's still at my parents' house, but I want to bring it to my apartment soon. I have my (small collection of) records, but nothing to play them on... :c
I'm hoping I can find a good set of speakers to go with it! For nostalgia's sake I'd love to have some huge, tall speakers like what my parents have. I swear the damn things are at least 100 cm tall... they sound great though!
I'm of the same opinion as you; function over form. What's the point of having something that looks nice if it sounds like crap?
And don't worry about your post getting long! I always love finding new people to talk to, especially about music stuff. :D
Also, unrelated but: your cosplays are awesome! I really look forward to seeing the final outcome of your Calne cosplay - I don't remember ever seeing anyone cosplay her at all so it's exciting seeing someone give it a try! If I was any good at making cosplays I'd have given it a shot, but that's out of my realm completely. xD


Nahh, I think you underestimate the amount of lurkers here. ;)

And oh, that is actually a lot less...uh "worse" than I expected, haha! As I've seen $1000+ headsets. xD My own was ~$150 if I remember correctly. I also thought that was an hard amount to drop on a headset and I was only willing to do it, because I could test it at a store and knew it was good. A lot of people recommended me $100-500 headphones that were only available online.

Hehe, thanks! For some reason I have this insane liking to the sound coming from old computer speakers. Which can easily be boosted with a simple subwoofer, but even without the subwoofer their sound seems to be so good. Even the simple, brandless ones.

I'm not a really big fan of records, but my dad and brother-in-law are huge fans of them, so I hear a lot of stories at family meetings, haha!

Are you aso convinced that your older record player makes a nicer sound that more modern ones? :) (Just like me hoarding and using old speakers? haha!)

I don't know the exact name for them in English, but I'm always impressed by these tall speakers that have such a good sound they don't need a seperate subwoofer (is that the type you mean?) Those are expensive, though! D:

Heh, my dad actually replaced his tall speaker-system a few years ago for a smaller set that has 2 speakers standing on a pillar. The design is super clean and matches the TV and furniture, but the sound is not so good. :( My weird hybrid sets make a lot better sound and cost like 10% of the money his set cost him. xD

I just felt like I needed to send you a message after reading about the headphone-part. xD I can find a lot of people online to talk to about music, but not much people to talk about speakers/headphones/set-up etc. :D I'm of course a huge amateur with random stuff put together, but I think it's funny how far along I can get on a low budget audio-wise. ;)

Oh wow, thank you! :) Don't be too excited for Calne though, because this project will take a crazy amount of time and will nowhere soon be finished. xD

I have seen multiple other Calne cosplayers online! Actually just yesterday another Calne cosplayer on MFC contacted me, haha! But I think I'm the first or only one cosplaying the Nurse Cos. version so far!

Cosplaying can also be done simply! I started out with altering existing clothing, everybody can learn how to make cosplays! ^^

I randomly came across your profile and read your introduction. Which leaves me with one burning question: Which headphones are the expensive ones you're talking about? :)

I'm a person that loves to hear a lot of bass in music without losing any of the other sounds and I always have a really hard time to find the right headphones and speakers to satisfy my needs. :P

I currently have the following setups:

1) My personal favorite: Some really old super-bassy woofers from the 80's, combined with super bassy computer speakers from the 90's. I love the sound. My husband hates it. xD He says hears them everywhere in the house. Which is true, lol. But the sounds is so good if you're in the same room as the set. xD

2) The "this is a socially acceptable home cinema"-set. Modern, a bit more than average-sized subwoofer with another set of 90's computer speakers.

3) I used to have HUGE headphones from the 80's that came with a recordplayer and they had the most amazing sound. xD But yeah they broke down of old age and 3-4 years or so ago I bought these SONY MDR-XB700 headphones. It was a huge search with a lot of testing around, but these were the best I could find without having to spend a crazy amount of money on headphones that could be a gamble. I still think they are amazing for their price, but I now there are way better ones out there. :P

Idk what it is, but with more recent equipment I can barely find the nice sound of older woofers and speakers. Most of the stuff sounds so flat nowadays!

Long story short: All the stuff I own is either old and/or ugly, but sound is more important for me than looks. xD

Oh man, this became a big wall of text for something that was supposed to be a short question! Sorry! o.o Also English is not my first language, so I maybe used some wrong names for the types of speakers I was talking about. xD

GodlikeSascha5 years ago#4004803What an amazing collection you have! I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of all your Pokémon stuff, especially all those plushies. :p
Thank you for adding so many items to the Pokémon database!


Thanks for the compliment! You have a great collection yourself! :)

Yokuso to MFC I hope that you will find that this site has many things to offer collectors like us. I have found with time an patients that you can find almost any figurine / Plushie or Goods that you may want. At what price that is a different story. As you peruse some of the profiles you will see some that have embellished them thanks to being a donor to the site. Some features like a back ground picture are activated that way. For me I used some Jpegs and made my profile that umph.

There are many ways you can customize your profile and as you get to know the site features you will be able to make this site your home. I look forward to seeing some blogs if you do like to write.

Enjoy your stay in the MFC community. Oh and no this is not an automated message
