About

Greetings! If you have any questions about any of the figures or printed works in my collection, feel absolutely free to ask! I can offer my opinions if you are thinking about getting one of them yourself.

Check out my Willing to Sell list for more details on figures in my collection that I am willing to part with. Contact me if you are interested, and perhaps we can work something out.

To all the newer collectors out there: Do NOT be discouraged when you see members with large collections! This is an expensive hobby and requires financial commitment. My best words of advice: Do not let a false sense of urgency dictate which figures you buy! If you become suddenly impassioned in wanting to own a figure, put it on your wish list, and wait patiently for one week. During that time, read reviews and look at photos from those who already own the figure. (If it hasn't released yet, then do so with past works by that figure's manufacturer). If you still have that same initial passion after one week's time, odds are that you will be VERY pleased with your purchase, even if it means you have to pay a little extra because you missed a pre-order sale. When I first started collecting, I made quite a few impulse buys, and I noticed that those were the ones I almost always ended up regretting. All of my absolute favorite figures I own were ones in which I remained patient.

Another word of advice: NOTHING in the world is perfect, and that includes collectible figures. Do not let minor imperfections dissuade you from purchasing a figure or discourage you when you see them in a figure you own. These wonderful treasures still need to adhere to manufacturing constraints and limitations.

Figures are magnificent works of art... ideas and visions converted into beautiful physical form by skilled sculptors and artists. Enjoy them, and take care! ~IceFang

Willing to Sell

My interests in figures has changed over the years, and I've noticed that a number of them do not appeal to my tastes as strongly. This list reflects such figures, and since I will likely never have them on display again, I'm willing to part with them. Not only did I buy all of these new when they were first released, I have taken VERY good care of them over the years. They are all in excellent, like-new condition from a pet-free and smoke-free home.

Contact me if you're interested, and I'd consider a group discount if you decide to purchase multiple. It's really sad having figures boxed away in storage, so help give these well cared for figures a new home!

Doujinshi & Manga

I'm also an avid collector of Japanese doujinshi, artbooks, and manga, with a strong predilection for, but not limited to, those with erotic themes. If you recognize and share my fondness for any of the titles here, be sure to send me a note if you fancy a discussion!

Added a new Shiranui Mai figure to the database: ITEM #837295 .
It's from some upstart company Genesis Group that I can't find any info on. I'm not necessarily thrilled by the face sculpt, but since you're a fan of the character I thought I'd point her out to you. I have been curious about the seamless posable 1/6 figure type for a while, but I haven't found one that interests me quite enough to TOFTT yet...

Actually not sure what makes answers appear on which page; think it might be the difference between quoting and answering. Not like I mind, easier to find this way.

Not being able to support artists is my only qualm about this, actually, makes me miss 2009/2010 when WhiteCanvas was still around.

I am selling, yep. Those lists are all up-to-date (minus human error), though I'm still a little unsure if I may want to keep my Madoka Doujinshi or not. That series had some impact on me. I used to focus only on Touhou Project, but after I got a job, I expanded a little. However, over time, I felt it was too much stress (and too expensive), so I decided to get rid of the ones that have no emotional value, limiting myself to handful of series (and a few special artists) in the process.

Anyway, feel free to either check out the lists (sorted by series) or you can also take a look at this folder (sorted by circle): 1drv.ms/f/s!Arp...

I'm selling most for roughly 6.00 EUR, though rarer ones go for more, obviously. If there's anything you're interested in, feel free to send me a list, I'll give you a quote.

IceFang (4 months ago) #48490451View spoilerHide spoilerHello! All is well. I'm still recovering from my biggest single-event splurge ever with C95. I found everything I was looking for, and now comes the exciting part: waiting for them all to arrive. ^_^ I have to ask: Which books did you see my name pop up on? There were so many amazing-looking titles I just couldn't pass up, but these are a few I'm most excited to read: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06. Which ones are you most looking forward to?

Wups, thought the answer would wind up on my page, sorry for the delay in answering! Glad to hear you're doing well and also managed to get everything; I mostly stick with second-hand stores (still got some qualms about supporting stores not supporting international customers), so at least I get a bit of a thrill of the hunt out of it.

Currently, I think I've got maybe 75% of what I wanted, though I keep forgetting about various books anyway. Looking at the lists of other people, I'm really glad I'm limiting myself to very few series and original works; no way I'd be able to sustain my collection if I didn't do that, way too much stuff to order for every new event.

In the same vein, I'm kind of happy that more circles are releasing original Doujinshi, but that also means I wind up having to pay more, but whatever!

Interesting to see which ones you're looking forward to the most, though. Some are a given, but I didn't even know one of those artists had a circle.

As for myself, there are some books I look forward to more than others, but at the same time, I just want all that I want. I think the ones I want the most are the ones others want as well, which is probably what led to my collection exploding in the first place. Kind of wish I could have skipped that part. My sales are going reasonably well and I'm even turning a profit, but at the same time, it's a bit of a hassle.

Akaichi (2 years ago) #14515037Yeah ! As you said, MFC is the greatest site as far as I know, including a good and helpful community !
Concerning my Chouun (Musashiya), I think she is ok, no leaning so far and she can stand by herself. I feel sorry for yours, probably a deformity of the pike under her feet... ? :'(

To honest, I'm pleasantly surprised by all the good-natured attitudes of eveyone here... and I've only been a member for several days. ^_^

Regarding Chouun, I think my base's hole for the pike is too big which is allowing the pike to rest in two positions. At first, I was thinking of trying to bend the pike, but I fear it would put too much stress on the figure itself and potentially damage it. It also wouldn't address the root issue. So instead, I'm planning to fill in the base's oversized hole and redrill it. There's nothing too special about the base itself, so I won't be nearly as upset if I ruin it.

Be sure to check out my Chouun photos that I recently uploaded. :)
