How often do you buy BluRay/DVDs? Not often I have a small collection I've thought about buying a few but I don't buy them often.

How often do you buy books/comics/manga? I buy them every now and again I have a decent collection of Manga and now slowly growing light novels.

How often are you looking into new figures? Just to look? every now and again.. but actually buying I'd say within reason.

When there are no new figures that get your interest do you hunt for older figures that you want? Not really.

Do you splurge a lot? I'd like to say no but yes.. but on all sorts of various things.

This year I've been trying to work on building up my DVD and manga collection some more, and CDs too. Luckily my tastes don't tend to the mainstream too much, so oft times the series I want I can get pretty cheap (though I have to import from the US usually). I recently got all 3 volumes of the Whispered Words / Sasameki Koto manga; I really enjoyed the anime adaption so I'm looking forward to reading the whole story. I'd really love to buy more manga but it can end up pricey due to either having to pay cray-cray local prices or import. I actually recently finally managed to get my hands on a copy of the 'End of Evangelion' dvd - it's the UK version, so the quality isn't great to say the least, but, for various reasons, I ended up getting it for free, and the condition is really nice, and it came with its little folded up poster, which I was able to recently get signed by Yuko Miyamura. So now I really love my crappy DVD, lol.

How often do you buy BluRay/DVDs?

I usually buy a movie or a cheap season of a TV show every 2-3 months.

How often do you buy books/comics/manga?

Ha ha, I love books, and I work in a bookshop, so I buy loads of book AND get free proof copies. Two days ago, I bought the digital editions of two trade paperbacks, two e-books, and a hardcover book.

How often are you looking into new figures?

Not too often. I'm mainly waiting for WonFes to see what's going to be coming out soon.

When there are no new figures that get your interest do you hunt for older figures that you want?

Occasionally, usually I just go for goods.

Do you splurge a lot?

Hmm, I'm going to say no, despite what my order history probably suggests...

I am a huge DVD collector. I always try to have the movies or anime I like on physical format (I think mainly because, just with my figures, I like to look at my collection) though when I can't (like, say, when an anime isn't licensed in my country or a movie is still unavailable in DVD), I have no qualms using "other methods". I can sometimes buy between 3 and 5 DVD/box sets per month, though in periods like summer sales and Christmas, it can be between 5 and 10.

As for imageless books, I already have three huge shelves full of old classical books with yellowed pages (I am an assumed soured old schmuck that sincerely thinks it was "better before" when it comes to a lot of things, like literature, music or cinema) I gathered during my school and university years. The same goes for bande dessinées (though there are really good new stuff) and comics (the state of Marvel and DC kinda sickens me, so I generally go for one-shots or old stories; thankfully, the comics industry is more than superheroes, so I have other things to choose from). I only read a small number of licensed manga, and generally buy the new books when they come out.

Regarding figures, I come on MFC on a daily basis, so I generally check if there are news about figures that aren't out yet among other things like photos and articles. I can't say I'm permanently on the hunt of old figures, but I can't deny that most of my wishlist figs are generally from at least four years ago. I also once in a blue moon browse figure selling websites to see if there aren't any good bargains and oportunities.

How often do you buy BluRay/DVDs?
I used to buy DVDs back in the days, but now it must've been ages since I last bought a DVD or Blu-Ray simply for a movie.

How often do you buy books/comics/manga?
Once a month/every other month, I think.

How often are you looking into new figures?
Too often.

When there are no new figures that get your interest do you hunt for older figures that you want?
Unfortunately for my wallet, there's always something to buy, whether I'd be figures, new or old, or something else.

Do you splurge a lot?
Yes.

I'm always on the hunt for older figures but I also religiously check (this database, shop instagrams, reddit, official sites) for any signs of new figures. I bought a few items last month and this month I'll only be buying one figure & one face parts case. Trying to save the max amount for some life stuff happening, then I can go back to semi-willy-nilly ordering. I've got a small list of box sets I need to get as well!

I've been facing the same dilemma ever since I started collecting figures seriously...while my figure collection grows, my manga/games/anime BDs collection lag miles behind the latest releases OTL I used to buy a few volumes of manga and anime BDs every month or so.
Now that I'm pretty much happy with my figures (I still look for some of the older/released figures that I want though :P), I've started to slowly get back at buying manga and books in general which is my main interest. I've 60+ books to get after taking a year's worth of break X'D

CaptainZ (Vor 10 Tagen) #22237549I want Trypticon as well but I also want stuff from Power of the Primes so I'm at a stalemate on that one. Also Saturn V is apparently impossible to get FYI.

That's one thing that bugs me a lot about certain LEGO sets like the Saturn V when it gets to being super popular and sells out fast and Trypticon I'm impatiently waiting for when it gets released since I want to try and snag it at a good price so I won't feel like I spent too much on it since $149 for Trypticon is too much for me at the moment.

SuperMilk (Vor 10 Tagen) #22238201Don't buy the Fate/Zero DVD sets. Aniplex is slowly releasing standard edition Blu-Ray sets ranging around $140-160 which isn't that much more than the DVD sets so you should wait just a bit longer, since Aniplex Japan is already releasing their Standard Edition Fate/Zero Blu-Ray set, Aniplex USA should follow soon after.

I'm trying to resist getting more DVD Sets since they release a lot of them at times and I never know when they are going to release an older series so I'm putting off getting DVDs for a while if I can cause I want to see Fate/Zero and I'm hopeful that I can either find the first release of the Fate/Zero dvds cheap eventually but I'm just trying to hold off on buying more DVDs because that's one thing that I'll get sucked into again and then I'll end up with a lot of DVD sets that I need to find shelf and storage space for.

I'm a pretty big BluRay/DVD collector, currently sitting at ~800 series sitting on my shelves. I buy a couple per month normally, then during big sales (usually around Thanksgiving/Christmas) I'll spend a lot like last year I bought 40 different series that time. I buy some manga but only for select series. Figures I check daily if anything comes up that I want, my limit for figures in any given month is usually 3 to 5 figures if it comes to it but I'm selective so most months are 1 to 3 figures. I do tend to splurge a lot, but never to the point where I overspend in any given month. Also want to add I make sure to put away 20% of my income per month.

Also if you're looking to seriously get into collecting DVD/BluRays then I highly suggest getting a region free BluRay player, the Fate/Zero set is cheap if you import it from the UK (Amazon etc.) compared to the US release. Any Aniplex USA is overpriced here and you're better off importing. Also if you're looking at any Sentai Premium releases wait a bit after they come out, they drop in price pretty quickly as they seem to make a lot and don't sell as much. Sentai has a sale going on on their website and you can see sets like Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon? that have a premium box set, was $97 at release and is now $57 at their sale. So for that GATE set I'd probably wait. But for sets like Outlaw star from Funimation they tend make a select amount and that's it so if you want a Funi set then pick it up.

littlefishgirl (Vor 10 Tagen) #22236768The Fate/zero dvd sets are still in stock at rightstuf for less than they seem to be on Amazon--but still pricy enough to get free shipping :) Just out of curiosity, where did you hear it was going out of print? Saw some listings for it on Ebay that said Out of Print but I guess that's the old trick to get one to buy it a a higher price.

I'm hoping I can find the series at Animax next Tuesday when I go so It would be great to find some Anime DVDs locally.

I used to buy anime DVD's and manga like crazy (well, not as crazy as some ...), but now that streaming is just so much easier/convenient and cheaper, I mostly do that (I subscribed to Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Anime Strike) - although not nearly as often as I should! I have a bunch of blu-rays/DVD's to catch up on, though ... oh well! I don't really buy manga much anymore just b/c I don't take much time to read it ... the last one I read was all of Citrus that's been released, and I enjoyed it!

I've cut WAY back on figures just recently (cancelled a bunch of orders and are working on culling the collection by selling) since I'm expecting my second child the end of the year!

I used to splurge a lot more - my last biggest splurges came last year, and I kiiiiinda regret some of them, b/c I'm feeling like I should have more money saved right now, but I'm feeling better after cutting back and making some sales!

I used to buy lots and lots of DVD's but now that pretty much everything gets a legal simulcast these days, I don't buy nearly as many. These days, DVD purchases are basically reserved for those shows I really like, where I don't have to be at the mercy of having the stream suddenly pulled.

Basically, my hobby budget used to go almost exclusively to DVD's, and now these days it's more like 90% figures/10% other media.
