    Great Question!

    For me, it was ITEM #4396 from Yamato.
    She sat in my Amazon wishlist for years, always tempted but never had the guts to pull the trigger until 3 or 4 years ago.

    What appealed to me was I always had a weakness for neko/catgirls and appreciate having a more 90's era anime look compared to the more moe look with anime and manga today. I'm also a big fan of Masamune Shirow's collective works and can see the influence in the character's overall look. Her outfit is well designed and am also a big fan of tan skin, so *bonus*.

    Once I clicked 'Check Out', my collecting career took off from there. Since then I discovered MFC, international sellers like AmiAmi, NY, HLJ, etc.

    I would later go on to collect a couple more from the Tandem Twin line but Schell is probably my favorite from the series.

    That Sonico figure sure gets around, certainly quite the way to break into a hobby. For myself it's a little more mundane, got: ITEM #164568 [mild NSFW] purely because of her face, it's just stupid pretty. Nozomi was on discount at PlayAsia at the time (Summer 2016) so I kind assumed all figures would be around 60 quid ($80-ish) including postage - hoh-boy!

    So uh multiple definitely NOT 60 quid figures later here I am in 2019 having got used to spending, uh, just a little north of 60 quid, thinking of getting 2 figures that might triple that price each (advice to former self;- get out while you still can / advice to future self;- embrace the financial haemorrhaging!).

    So kids, don't do figures drugs.

    For me it was this Komaki Manaka.
    I buyed some games on Play-Asia and she was on sale. I got her out of the box and was speechless at how beautiful an anime figure can be.

    Motoko ITEM #388
    I didn't even know anime figures were a thing until I randomly came across her on eBay.
