H i E v e r y b o d y ♥ !

So August is coming to an end soon and I figured it was time for my 1st official loot post.
I practically started figure collecting just a month ago but it’s been a fantastic journey ever since!
It might sound a little naive considering the short amount of time, but I feel like a made quite a transition as a collector in these past couple of weeks.

I started out as someone who was pretty much overwhelmed with all of the figure beauty I was confronted with: So much insta-love, a super fast-growing wishlist, stunning collections I saw here on MFC, etc. etc. You name it!
I had fairly large amount of figures on my to-buy list, where I hardly knew the character or didn’t even know the show they are based on that well. I was just thinking about how amazing some of those would look in my shelf. But when it came to actually placing an order for them I pretty much realized I didn’t really want them so bad after all. There was just no real connection.
So I quickly understood that it would make more sense to focus on my favorite charas and shows instead and build a collection around them. I’ll still squeeze in an occasional Hatsune Miku though ^_-

But for now, no more blabla but loot galore!!
(Please excuse the ridiculously bad quality of the photos. Cellphone camera + awful lighting = T_T)

This is all the stuff I ordered in late late July and early to mid August.
It’s only figures, so no merchandise, goodies or anything.
I received a total of 6 packages: 1x AmiAmi, 2x Anime-Figuren.de (german figure shop), 1x Mandarake, 1x J-Figure.com, 1x package from an MFC seller. And I ended up with 4 scales, 3 Nendoroids and one Azone Doll.

First up were these two beauties from Alter
(My very 1st set of figures ever!):

Then I ordered a bunch of Date A Live prettiness:

My beloved Tohka-chan…

I feel so lucky grabbing that über gorgeous Yoshino Nendoroid!
I got her from J-Figure new and unopened for a very reasonable price!

Next up is a super adorable Nendo I got from another collector here on MFC: It’s Sakura Miku!

I was a bit hesitant to order from a private person through a message board, especially considering that I was still a total newbie, but I wanted her so bad and since it was a good deal and the seller was based in Europe (not much shipping, no customs) I just went for it. And she turned out amazing! Love her a lot <333

But the biggest hole in my pocket left this little thing:

This photo doesn’t do her any justice! She’s absolutely gorgeous! I totally fell for Azone dolls! That’s another one of these thing I never thought I would end up with: A doll! I guess the last time I bought a doll, I was like 10 years old. I had seen some of these while browsing MFC and I got more and more intrigued until I fell in love with them completely. They are just so soooo cute, so well made, their clothing is really adorable. I eventually stumbled upon the Secret Wonderland Aika and I knew I had to have her in my life. She was my no. 1 wish girl, so I got her off Mandarake and she’s pure perfection! I’m so happy with her! I already ordered 2 more Azone dolls and I know they’ll make a large part of my collecting hobby in the future. So thanks MFC for introducing them to me!!


So yeah, that’s it for my first month of collecting!
In the beginning I was a little anxious if the figure hobby would work out for me (y’know, if I would still like the figures after a couple of weeks, if they were worth the money, all these kind of things.)
But sometimes I find myself enjoying just looking at my figures and being very happy with them, so I guess that’s a good sign ^_^

Thank you so much for reading guys!!
Maybe some of you would like to share their stories on how they’ve changed as collectors over time as well?

Wow! That's an awesome start! I can only afford to buy one, maybe 2 figures a month.

The Date a Live nendos are so cute though! I'm so glad I pre-ordered Yoshino, 'cause she's in really high demand now! x__x (I can see why though. She's SUPER adorable AND intricate.)

Yup, I splurged a bit, gotta admit that ^_^; I just felt like I needed to kick it off big ^o^ And since I'm not really into merch like straps and posters, I'm pretty much left with scales! You do have quite some nice stuff as well, I see lots of Nendoroid cuteness!

Thanks~ Well, I was still in my testing out phase, so I needed a bit of everything!

aweofsheIl y a 6 ans#2325439Tales! <3 Tohka was the first time I ever considered buying a nendoroid. Immediately fell in love with her intricate outfit, lovely eyes, and purple colour scheme! Not a fan of the source material but her design is one of my favorites. The more I see Yoshino nendo, the more I think I need her, too! ><;Great loot!
Tohka, her attack face is so adorable, isn't it? If you have any chance of getting Yoshino, go for it! She's in pretty high demand, but absolutely worth it ^_^
