I've been watching and drawing anime since the 90's, but have only recently gotten into the figure collecting world. I started with a few Pullips in the early 2000's and then I acquired three Volks Super Dollfie 13's.
Then, many years later, Evangelion took over my life. Oh, Evangelion...
It started with just three Kaworu figures at a convention, and then came a few more from eBay, and then the pre-orders started happening...
I apparently started figure collecting at just the right time, what with the influx of - ahem! - figures relating to my namesake.
I primarily only collect male figures. I just tend to find myself more drawn to male characters, and that's almost always my prerequisite when it comes to figures I want to own and display. Besides Kaworu and Shinji I'm currently collecting/hunting/in possession of: Rin (Free!), Haru (Free!), Benten (Zone-00), Hisoka (Hunter X Hunter), Axel (KH), Sebastian (Black Butler), Levi (AoT) and the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure boys, just to name a few.
I'm not the best photographer out there, but if there's anyone in my collection you need a picture of feel free to message me!*
*Note: Not everything I own is listed here. Some figures are unlisted (or I just can't find 'em), and more than a few of my figures are tucked away in storage so I didn't include them.
