JukkaraOfficial (1 day ago) #27242698Man, that's pretty harsh. Don't worry, I shouldn't be diving into personal issues,haha. In my opinion, if it makes you happy and doesn't hurt anyone, you should spend money on it. Thanks for talking with me :)

I won't lie, I'd go a bit crazy if I had absolutely nothing to do, so I'm glad I have this hobby.

Thanks for talking to me, too! I really enjoy talking with people!! I wish you luck with your collection, I hope it'll grow to be one you're 100% satisfied with

JukkaraOfficial (1 day ago) #27242009Lol, I'm gonna ask you a question I've made a blog post of before: Where do you get the money for all of this?
I mean, obviously to own 200 figures, one will naturally have to be a working adult, but does nobody judge you or think of your hobby as a waste of money? What do your parents think?


View spoilerHide spoilerI actually don't work anymore (worked some jobs in the past but my disabilities have caused issues, leading me to quit), but most of my income has come from a monthly disability check I've received since childhood. I know a lot of people frown on using the money on frivolous things like figures and games but in my opinion it's better than wasting it on drugs and all that. But that's a really really heavy issue. All I can say about it is that I don't regret getting disability since I am honestly disabled and have lived most of my life extremely poor and in near-poverty, with that check being the only thing stopping my entire family from being homeless, and I still use it to pay for my essentials (rent, food, medicine) and still save for emergencies.

As for people judging my hobby, I don't think anyone I know online really has. A few friends have joked about it a bit but I know it's all light-hearted banter. My mother flip-flops on the issue, she liked to see what I got in the mail and called them all my "girlfriends" (regardless of character or even species. She's called Gundams girlfriends as well), but she does have times where she's disapproving, but she orders tonnes of makeup and things like that online so I just dismiss it as her own hobby. Everyone else expresses some interest but not all that much, mostly just wanting to see and ask about the character and that's it.

JukkaraOfficial (1 day ago) #27241195How long have you been collecting? 200+ is absolutely insane! Do you actually own that many? It's so shocking

I first started "really" collecting in Summer 2012 and it just grew over time, I definitely get a bit shocked when I think about all I have too, especially when I consider how small I started and stayed for 2012-2013 (like 15 or so). 2015 was when it really started to get larger. Problem's always been never having much room for everything, especially now that I just moved and my new room isn't too large. Storage for everything is gonna be an issue since I have to keep all the boxes somewhere...

Really it's just a time thing (and really awful spending habits on my end) and if you just keep getting things you like every now and then you'll eventually notice "Wow, I have a lot of these things!"

Donating legos would be a cool thing to do also, they have universal appeal and kids love to play with them! I was still playing with them through my entire school years lol.

JukkaraOfficial (1 day ago) #27240358Do you ever get worried that you'd collect so many figures you'd stop caring about them? It's something I'm really scared of, and it's one of the reasons why I don't buy so many figures. I tend to appreciate them a lot more when I only have a few. Now it seems like I've just got a lot of lego I'm trying to sell off, lol. I'm hoping I won't 'grow out' of figures.

I won't lie, there are a few I haven't opened just because I have so many to get around to and limited space, but I do genuinely care about all of my figures - to the point where when it was suggested that I sell some off, I got really worried and couldn't choose a single one because I feel like I'd miss it after it's gone - which has happened after selling a few in the past.

There have also been times I just haven't been into collecting as much, but those are just lulls in activity rather than growing out and I usually get back into it once something sets the spark off, usually seeing something new I'm into or something really cool!

It's definitely easier to appreciate a smaller collection, when I was in a small place last year with only a few figures from some orders, they grew on me a lot. I think it's possible with a large collection too, and I can't see myself ever stopping, but if I were to reach the 2000 mark I'd say it'd definitely be a lot harder, but I'd still try. Not that I'm likely to ever get to that point lol.

I only have a few lego sets now because I tend to only buy during promotions (2016's Darth Revan minifigure bundle was my last purchase) but I used to collect lots of Star Wars and Harry Potter sets. I know how big of a hassle it is to sell them from what my friend's told me, he's tried to sell parts of his (absolutely massive) collection and hasn't had any luck. Not sure if it's no demand or if I just don't know the market all that well.

JukkaraOfficial (1 day ago) #27240227Thanks for the comment! It's interesting that you do that ☺ I used to do the same thing with legos and gundam
nothing dumb about that toy story thing tho, I do that too


Ahaha, I had tonnes of legos and gundam toys too! I'd just get whatever I could play with and make them beat the crap out of each other (with lego people having to band together since they were smaller)

I'd also get super hyped up about playsets back then, I remember getting a pirate ship as a random gift once and it was one of my favourite toys. Sadly all of that stuff is gone from years of moving around the country, but the memories are there and that's what counts imo.

2 scales a month! You gotta be kidding


It's not terrible. I make about... $200-$250 a month. I've found good deals on some scale figures around $70, so 2 in one month at that price isn't too bad. But if it's a figure above $100 dollars I'll tend to let it be the only one I get that month.
