The idea came out of nowhere, then when I gave it a bit of thought I realised that I’d LOVE to have figurines of some great Anime characters. So I started browsing whole bunch of Japanese Toy Shops, found out that most of the female characters I’d like to have as a figurine are long out of stock, so I kept searching for whatever was relatively new and suitable for my taste.
That’s when I found Figma Mio, the moment I saw this detailed and beautiful figurine I knew I had to get it. Finally found a shop with her still in stock(KidNemo), but it turned out that I couldn’t find anything else to buy it with. That’s when I found another awesomely looking figure of Black Rock Shooter’s Black Gold Saw, as much as I wanted to order them right then, I couldn’t because she was a pre-order item scheduled for the next month. That’s when I started checking more and more shops for atleast 2 figurines that I’d like to have, when finally on HLJ I’ve found two Evangelion masterpieces, each worth about 30$, so with the ‘must-have’ fever I have ordered it.
While waiting for the Gold Saw + Mio to be both avaible at once, I already got my hands on the Evangelions and damn, the fever spread even more! I started looking for my favourite movie/games characters! Now on my wish list there’s classic Predator & Alien, Illidan Stormrage, Jack Sparrow, Joker and Iron Man. Now the hardest thing to do is to wait for some of them to come out, but I guess I will get over it soon when I get more of them.
So I went ahead and made myself an account on MyFigureCollection.Net (Velore). And all I can say to you fellow Anime fans – collecting is so much fun! Not for the wallet though, I definitely need a job right now, lol.
