2013 : collection expansion : yes or no ? how ?2013 : collection expansion : yes or no ? how ?

jkbjkbIl y a 5 ansAsk MFC
Hi dear members,

At this year's end, I thought a lot about this 2013 year's managing my figures orders and purchases.

Another topic popped out of my head. The answer may be the same for everyone here so I added something to it.

I wanted to ask you by introducing this poll, as the title states :

Did your figure collection followed an expansion this 2013's year ? how ?

I would like to see serious comments on the matter but hey ! have fun writing anything you want ! We're near the end of year after all.

What I'm aiming for, so here is my answer as an example :

I continued to pre-order and order figures, goods, and also did some impulsive purchases on figures I didn't know was released then. But over all, the quantity of figures and goods didn't expanded that much compared to 2012's.

I imagined other choices to it because mine isn't helping much, feel free to add yours ! Something like "I discovered nendoroids this year, and I'm only focusing on them now !"

Thanks a lot for your participation !

Bye.

heathersaur (Il y a 5 ans) #1876227I think most of my magi collection was bought within 2013 (including I think my entire Ja'far collection)

I splurged a little during this year since I had a really nice internship during the summer, but I'm getting into the last few semesters of college and need to start thinking of other things than buying figures lol. I'm going to start getting a little more picky over pre-ordering things that release past April next year because I need to start putting money away.

And the 2d season of Magi is getting even better, I think it's going to be hard to resist x)


SShirokaze (Il y a 5 ans) #18762322012: LIST #14434 90 items.
2013: LIST #14437 198 items.
yes, there was definitely an expansion e_e
basically, this year i ordered less scale figures, but ordered a lot more prize figures, chibis, goodies, and manga :3

Impressive~
Yeah, I noticed this year prize figures are getting more and more detailed, some regular manufacturers may have to raise the bar to not get ashamed from their quality :D


Kalissiah (Il y a 5 ans) #1876245At first my collection was growing pretty rapidly with scaled figures. But a lot of them were impulse buys, so I also sold a lot of figures. Now my collection is growing reeeeally slow, because I'm also constantly selling figures :). I didn't really know what I wanted my collection to look like in the beginning, so I just ordered everything I thought looked nice. Turns out, that doesn't work for me :p. Another reasing why my collection isn't really growing, is because I discovered DDs and am currently saving up to buy one :). I was also selling a lot of figures for that purpose. I'm now only keeping the figures that I REALLY love.
Oh, DD... I stopped myself from it, it's my top wish but it's really not in my range right now, unfortunately I can't risk it. On the other side, I enjoy viewing others pictures of theirs, so awesome !


Katto (Il y a 5 ans) #1876269My collection has almost doubled in size since this time last year haha. I started buying doujinshi, more artbooks, rubber straps and a lot more manga.
I understand how great they're but my opinion-personnality is I want every page of that doujinshi as wall scrolls, so I cannot have one, I'd think it's awesome and be sad at the same time.


sarunamirabu (Il y a 5 ans) #1876271I went from 120 something figures to 250 something figures OTL Also got more BL manga and goods like keychains and etc.
This was my first year just POing things mostly so ^^;

How nostalgic of a feeling to me... You are rushing, your heart is racing, PO are everywhere. Keep it up (but remember to keep your head above water) ! :)


Guy9394 (Il y a 5 ans) #1876273One Piece POP from 7 to 14
Figuarts from 3 to 7
Master Grade Gundam +2
Figma +3
Discovering new series is dangerous:
Macross VFs from 4 to 7
Saint Seiya myth cloth from 4 to 14
DD +3
My 2013 forecast was 15 but actual is 50. My forecast for 2014 is 6, I'm quite confident this time since 95% of my bank account is gone.

This is a huge difference, well, my guess is DD took almost all of it ?


CypherAA (Il y a 5 ans) #1876274Collection greatly expanded for 2013 as for some stats that I know off the top of my head:
Detolf's expanded 2 became 8.
Dollfies expanded 1 became 5.
Nendos expanded greatly... (ITEM #61341 went from 1 to 4)
1/4 Freeing bunnies 8 to 14
But I think 2014 will be a plateau year exception of already PO'd items:
ITEM #167292
ITEM #172745
ITEM #172754
ITEM #153427
ITEM #78645
And of course: ITEM #153162
I would say 2014 is giving my wallet a rest until Miku DD is released.

Hahahaha, 2 to 8 detolfs ! Impressive !
That's Miku DD is going to be a riot in DDs history, and that additional outfit is so nice ! Really good for you !
That nendoroid Miku, I'll get her too, need a little wizard in my collection :)


chaz_pepper (Il y a 5 ans) #1876292I have just started my collection this year so a lot of growth. I started out buying scaled figures but, then I started to buy more smaller figures such as Nendoroids and Cu-poche. I just feel like I am geting a lot more figures for my money.
Their cuteness is beyond words to me. :)


KalasRaven (Il y a 5 ans) #1876313My collection did expand, though not as much since I sold 10 or so figures this year. :3 These are all the figures I added to my collection in a year. I didn't realize how many there were until I listed them all!! O_O LIST #25006
I did get a bunch of stuff that's non anime related as well. :3 I got most of my Walking Dead (Mostly Daryl Dixon) collection this year. <3 I added about 7 new Darth Maul figures and such to my huge collection. I also got a few Fluttershy things as well as two Pacific Rim action figures. I know I got more stuff, but I can't think of any more atm. :P

Yugioh will ever stay printed in my memory, I believe I played it for the first time on Game Boy Advance, didn't get that much fun playing a card game before.
Walking Dead is a great show, personnally, it could have ended for meVoir le spoilerCacher le spoiler at the farm when Sophia popped out, best moment of the show for me www.imdb.com/me... that was it for me.
I would want a figure signed if I get one Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerwww.imdb.com/me... , that's so cool.


romax (Il y a 5 ans) #1876379My collection on anime media kinda expanded this year since I've started collecting manga and games for my Vita (just bought my MikuVita this October and all the games are coming really fast! >_<). I'm still gonna focus on my figma line but I'll side track a bit on manga and Miku merchandise starting next year. :3
*and to add a bit, after I finish all of my pre-orders for next year I'm going to take the Dollfie route right after I get my first Dollfie next year. wee~! XD*

Aaaah, Miku is irresistible, I told myself I would only get one version of her, I ended up getting 5 so far (3 scale figure + 2 Nendoroid) ... and Miku Shinkai Shoujo ver is on the list !
DD... it's only a dream to me for now.


Leosach (Il y a 5 ans) #1876511yup... collection grows... bank account not! T_T sad but true
Thinking like this may be better for peace of mind, and it's still true ! : sacrifice your wallet=YES ! but more happiness=also YES ! :)


WanderingWastrel (Il y a 5 ans) #1876546I got back into anime late last year after a several year absence. As part of my enjoyment of K-On!, I decided to get the Alter figures of the K-On girls. So into the beginning of this year, I gradually acquired them.
But then this ITEM #42037 of Mugi was so nice, too. Then ITEM #63706 and ITEM #63703 from Railgun were pretty nice...
I've gone pretty out of control since then. :-) Not just figures, but artbooks, Japanese BluRays of series I don't think will get released in North America, posters and wallscrolls on most available vertical surfaces.
Oh well. Money is nice, but being surrounded by beauty is better.

Oh, K-On ! ... always be of great memories, that's Tsumugi ver is the best waitress ver I have ever seen, would be very hard to beat her for any future release.
I'm aiming for the Mio KyoAni ver., I did get the Yui nendoroid ver, but only for the double peace pose.
Agreed ! Happiness before numbers ! :)


Chidoru (Il y a 5 ans) #1876741My collection rubber banded quite a bit. I think I sold about as much as I bought this year. ^^;
I think your way is beneficial too, I stopped myself to go for doubles, I used to get a double for every PO, I finally didn't see the point this year. I'm exposing the ones I want to be exposed, and keeping sealed the others for special occasions ! :D


ponnie (Il y a 5 ans) #1876993Looks like my collection almost doubled this year.
And I have a Donyatsu shrine.

Very good thing ! Thanks again for your Donyatsu review, they're great !
I'm a dog person, I do hope they think about doing a dog version of them, but I think these cat ver are cuter. I also think it's too bad my place don't any Donuts seller... I did bunch of them now xD


Deru_90 (Il y a 5 ans) #1877153I have to say that i've been collecting figures for a long time (since 2007 or so), but I was buying an average of 5 gashapones/Prize figures/ Keychains a year.
But I don't really know what happened this year... Well, I DO know it: I discovered AmiAmi and Mandarake... And I bought like 30 figures since this April.
So my answer is DEFINITELY YES: my collection have expanded this year xD

I fully understand, I think I check Mandarake more often than I check my mail box x)


Maakie (Il y a 5 ans) #1877160I bought a lot, but also sold a lot! xD
So I think in the end my collection has grown a small amount compared to last year. :)

So you ended up with MORE items you really wanted ?
