Hey all!

Just recently got into figure collecting despite liking anime for like 8+ years! Didn't really have the budget to shop freely until recently. I also had no understanding of the hobby LOL (little me probably felt a bit too intimidated by the prices at the time). Feels good to actually invest into things I like now!!

I've just recently picked up anime again after dropping it for around 3 years. Got into a really bad slump of depression where I basically lost all my hobbies... So yeah, trying to catch up with all the big series so I can start building a collection of characters I like >:)

This community reminds me of the old dA and I love it!! Seems like quite the tight-knit group where everybody can talk about their interests without shame. I hope to be active in the community! ^^

Feel free to fr me, I'm always looking for new peeps to talk to :)
My wishlist = buying next/I REALLY want it and will probably buy it at one point

♥ jojo wishlist ♥13




I ordered ITEM #120913 she was only slightly more expensive than release price so it wasn't that bad. I love ordering from Mandarake but it's super a slippery slope because next minute there's so many items added to the cart ahahah. Not anymore since the Pandemic shipping is so expensive.

I've been playing for almost a year too. I did spend some money when I first started playing then I realized with the money I've spent on attempts I could have probably just purchase the ones I want. After that realisation, I have not spent anymore money on Toreba.

I always try on plushies because they're squishy I feel they are easier to win? Most of my wins are flukes, I've won a mew plushie, panda plushie log, a pompurin pillow, detective Conan prize figure and little mermaid towel. I'm still waiting on 3 plushies that stuck to be shipped from Toreba.

Now I just use my 2 free tickets on any random games I like prizes of, I don't really watch replays I'm just not skilled at all just sometimes lucky hahaha.

Hello fellow Sydney Sider!! I went ahead and ordered stuff from Mandarake! It looks like if it fits into smaller box shipping should only be ~2k JPY. Fingers crossed mine fits lmao.

Also lol on no spending money on Toreba, I find that if you just use the 2 free tickets everyday you're bound to get something once every 3-6 months :)

Aw, yeah. It really is a shame it doesn't have more merch! I understand that thought, the series is very special to me too. I hope you can find the merch you want!

Oh my goodness! Congrats! And with the pre order bonus too, gosh I’m so glad you nabbed him! ♡ I’m sure the little guy is worth the sacrifice!
And gosh same, I was planning on waiting for a restock too but that might not have been for a long while- my Jotaro shaped heart could not take the long wait :’)

He absolutely is! I had him on pre-order but had to cancel as a sacrifice to a Seto Kaiba figure I pre ordered instead, I’m so sorry Kakyoin (>_<)

It sure is crazed isn’t it? JoJo merch can shoot up so high in the aftermarket price! There’s so many possibilities that I’m so excited for with nendos... I sure hope I can actually manage to nab them for if they do release xD
I would also love a Star Platinum and a Kira! Those two would be so cute! And yesss a Jolyne! Maybe part 6 anime might bring more 6taro goodies too....? I hope so ╰(*´︶`*)╯♡

Thank you for accepting! (*^▽^*)
Aw thank you! I hope you can own them too, I really wish GSC would re-release them! I’m also praying that they release a 4taro, please GSC I beg of you I got lucky and grabbed Kakyoin at retail price but Jotaro ended up being painful amount... My boy is worth it though :’)
And omg you have the Kakyoin doll plush on order! He is a must in life! ♡

You're welcome! Me too, loved the Death Thirteen episodes - Kakyoin's sweet revenge on that asshole baby cracks me up every time.

Aw, thanks! I'm hoping to review the upcoming Grandista DIO, assuming he pops up on Mandarake around the time of his release and nobody else reviews it first.

Thank you! My JoJo collection takes up an entire Detolf currently and is in very real danger of outgrowing it soon, because expanding is what I do best, lmao. I have the Johnny and Diego SAS figures on pre-order and still need Jolyne. Also plan to collect all the Nendoroids, except for the La Squadra ones which I'm not fussed about. Would love to see the rest of the Crusaders, the Bucci gang and Jonathan Nendos in future.

Yeah, I also hope Kak and Jotaro get a re-release someday. I was hunting them down for my brother about 10 months ago and was lucky enough to find them for the normal retail price on Madman AU. They go for 12-15k yen now... it's absurd. Do you know about the GSC request form? You should spam them pop in a request every so often. (* ^ ω ^)

Guidelines for Figure Collecting

I'm setting some guidelines to try and lessen any regrettable purchases! :)

• Limit of 1 figure a month - if I go over this, I will take away one figure for the next month.
• Cap of 250 AUD a month (including other forms of merchandise)
• Put favourite characters on priority.
Current favourite characters -> Kakyoin, Echidna, Hatsune Miku, Elise (TWGOK)
• If a grail comes up on Mandarake and costs less than 250AUD, insta-purchase if possible.
• No prize figures unless it's a character that doesn't have good scales OR if it's really unique.
• Put item on wishlist for about 1-2 weeks before preordering. unless it's an absolute favourite character that never gets scales or an exclusive like Myethos figs
This is not a figure collecting guideline but it's important.
