    My figure buying mania continues. This month I picked up Akagi ITEM #740316 from Azur Lane. https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/10/24/2319938.jpeg

    I really like her and she looks very nice with her wrap off too:

    On the way right now I have the re-release of Mordred ITEM #198483 and also a nami figure that I picked up since I enjoyed the newer BB ver so much, I just had to get the older one pre-owned but sealed on amiami for a decent price. ITEM #307129

    I think I bought more scales this year than any other year, lol. I thought I was winding down on this hobby a little but NOPE.

    I am way down; I've bought five figures this year so far, with one coming in November and there is one I might get in December. There just isn't much coming out I want now; of those five, two were rereleases and two were old figures. I probably am being a little more selective as I know I have figures that I like enough to keep but were I buying now I probably wouldn't. Looks like in 2017 and 2018 each I bought eleven, and twenty-six in 2016. I wasn't here until late 2015 so everything before that was all put in the collection listing at about the same time so I don't know before that. It's fine because I'm at almost 80 figures and I never really wanted to have over about 100.

    Anyway, almost November so I'll do this again:

    - November 2019 preorders -

    GSC has given Vintage Dress Miku ITEM #604392 a date of November 7 after delaying her from October so she's what I have for the month.

    This I believe is the first time Max Factory hasn't announced another Project Diva F figure before the previous one came out, so that figure line may be ended.

    yeah i'm getting up there in figures as well and think I just need to have a cutoff of around 100 or so. space is a becoming a real issue now. Looking through my collection there's a few things I'll probably trim, but most I'm wanting to keep.

    Actually forgot entirely about this Chiyo figure that's on the way to me now ITEM #675824 from TOM. Shame it seems like her face didn't come out that great.

    Compared to the prototype it seems like something went a bit wrong with Chiyo's mouth so she looks a little bit derpy.

    I'm surprised as I know Revolve usually does good work.

    Your Akagi looks nice though. It's too bad Wave doesn't make more figures these days that aren't the small and usually boring Beach Queens line. I'm not even sure they do those much anymore.

    yeah I think I might just throw that Chiyo on eBay as soon as she shows up. I have the Dragon Toy one and while it's not perfect in some regards at least the face looks really good.

    I'm really enjoying Akagi, but she also has some minor issues with apparently unavoidable paint transfer from her wrap and also kind of a weird sculpting for her bikini bottom where it is really dug into her hips with a ridge. Thankfully neither is that noticeable from general viewing angle. It's only on close inspection that these things are apparent. Curious to see if Kaga will have the same issues, as she's coming sometime next month I think.

    Never thought I would be into swimsuit figures but here we are, haha.

    There are some Amakuni pre-orders in AmiAmi, like Tae O_o

    That's cool.

    I noticed that; maybe Hobby Japan finally came up with a way to sell their products overseas without having to go through third parties where they end up costing more?

    Anyone remember several years ago when HJ announced the "HJ Fan Club" (whatever they called it) that was supposed to lead to some kind of direct way to buy their figures? I signed up for that to get emails about it, and never received anything at all and as far as I know it was never spoken of again.

    The listing of countries Tae can and can't be shipped to at least suggests this is some kind of arrangement like that. OTOH it doesn't have the mention of being exclusive to Amiami like some of the things they've been selling do, so I wonder if anyone else will also carry these? So far, I didn't see Tae on Hobby Search or HLJ.

    I should wait and see if further figures show up before getting too excited heh.
