November 2020 Collection tour and next additionsNovember 2020 Collection tour and next additionsDiary

Hello Everyone,

It's almost two years since I began collecting anime figures: I ordered my first figure ITEM #78589 in december 2018 and wow, time went by so fast!
I did not expect to discover such an exciting hobby and I do not regret the journey. Sure that I'm not going to stop there. I'm so hyped by several 2021 releases.

I found interesting to make a collection tour at this point, talk about the upcoming orders and about the future additions. It is picture heavy.
This is not a big collection (it depends on what everyone calls a big collection haha), but that's what I want. I have set rules for myself since I prefer to stay as picky as possible (like the scale, only characters I know, trying to select only one figure per character...).
I set those rules from the very beginning, since I was put off by the prices but so blown away by the beauty of anime figures.

So let's go for this tour. I have already shown pictures of my whole display here BLOG #46624, but for this tour I found it interesting to zoom in on my figures in groups according to certain themes, and not like I usually display them.

Obviously let's start with the figures from Steins; Gate, the anime that made me want to start collecting. Kurisu, Okabe and Suzuha Amane were the 3 first figures I collected. The two Christmas sitting figures of Kurisu and Mayuri came later:

Then I got interested in Good Smile Racing. I have been interested in motorsport for a long time and have attended races like those in which GSC participates. So, stuff combining anime style and motorsport really hyped me:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/10/2538429.jpeg

Then came figures from my second favourite series ever: Evangelion (the original series, The End movie and the Rebuild movies). I collected the Asuka and Rei fugures by Kotobukiya in Spring 2019. The Alter figure Jersey ver. of Asuka and Misato Katsuragi by New Line on the right came this Fall:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552453.jpeg

Let's now have a look at the ones I call my "Fantastic girls", I mean imaginary creatures, which are an important part of my collection (extraterrestrial, demons, ghosts, "true" bunnies or cat-girls,...):
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552460.jpeg
They're from plenty of different mangas/animes and came in the collection from the beginning until now.

It was not originally intended, but many of these characters turn out to have pink hair:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552457.jpeg

Let's have a zoom on these two beauties: Zero Two uniform ver. ITEM #675949 by Aniplex and Yae Sakura Mandarin Gown ver. by Apex (not in the database):
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552456.jpeg

Still in that same group, let's have a zoom on my High School DxD girls (I still miss a figure of Rias, but I'm not very hyped by the existing ones):
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552459.jpeg

And my To LOVEru girls:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552458.jpeg

From these groups, here are the 4 figures that I consider to be the top of my collection, because of their beauty or because they became super rare:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552455.jpeg

And also from these groups, here are all the Redheads together, just for fun:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552454.jpeg

Which leads us to the next group: the "Real girls", I mean "normal" human characters:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552452.jpeg
Some of them are popular like Erina Nakiri from Food Wars ITEM #720788 and Mai Sakurajima from Bunny Girl Senpai ITEM #769188, but other ones are less-known characters like Hotaru Shidare from Dagashi Kashi ITEM #419433, Aoi Sakurai from Rail Wars ITEM #236183 or Yumiko Sakaki from Le Fruit de la Grisaia ITEM #118137.

Let's have a zoom on these 3 sexy black bunnies:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552450.jpeg

Which finally leads us to all the black/dark blue-haired girls all together, with Faye Valentine ITEM #806275 in addition:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/31/2552451.jpeg

And that's all for now!
So what's next?

Here are the 4 orders that will join the collection very soon:
- Mito Ikumi from Food Wars by Alter company ITEM #432183 which will sit perfectly with Erina.
- Ichigo from Darling in the Franxx by Good Smile Company ITEM #739483, who will join Zero Two.
- Kato Megumi from Saekano by Aniplex ITEM #307778.
- And, last but not least: Phosphophyllite from Houseki no Kuni by Good Smile Company ITEM #549362. I loved Houseki no Kuni sooo much, I'm so hyped for this one.

And here are the pre-orders that will join the collection next year:
- Vanilla from Nekopara china dress by Alphamax (std. ver.) ITEM #792686.
- Coconut from Nekopara by Hakoiri Musume ITEM #948163. I don't own any figure of this manufacturer, pretty stressed about how she will turn out.
- Utaha Kasumigaoka from Saekano by Alter/Aniplex ITEM #648876, which will sit perfectly with Megumi.
- Yui Kotegawa from To LOVEru winter limited ver. by Union Creative ITEM #946269, who will join the other To LOVEru girls.
- Aaaaand... Hatsune Miku china dress by Myethos ITEM #998271. The original illustration was made by ASK, whose I love the work.


And finally, here is a reflection on the announcements that excite me the most but for which no release has been announced yet:
- Rem Galleu from How not to summon a Demon Lord by Orca Toys ITEM #798877. Cat girl? Black hair? Tsundere? A winning combination for me haha, but the problem is that the prototype was unveiled almost 2 years ago and there has been no news since. I REALLY hope that Orca Toys won't cancel her.
- Asuka Langley from Rebuild of Evangelion by Wave ITEM #943602 which reproduces my favourite illustration of her.
- Asuka Langley and Rei Ayanami in Entry Plug by Union Creative ITEM #872837.
- Shinji Ikari Radio Eva ver. by Hobby Max ITEM #872780.
- Zero Two wedding dress ver. by Good Smile Company ITEM #1064642.
- And Yui Yuigahama from Yahari by Wonderful Works ITEM #946022.

As I told earlyer, I still miss a figure of Rias Gremory but I hope for something new, maybe in the same style as my Akeno figure by Phat! ITEM #806161.
Also, the last character from To LOVEru I would like to add to my collection is Haruna Sairenji, but same thing here: not hyped by what already exists. I can't wait to see how the darkness version of Union Creative will turn out.


There is still a lot of fun to come with this hobby for sure. Wat are the announcements that excite you the most?
Hope you liked the read, stay safe.

Cheers!

ArchiwheelVor 5 Monaten#86649769Hey, thank you very much, glad you liked the read. You have a nice profile and your collection also contains great pieces, for example I love this Rei ITEM #294414 but I think it's impossible to find her now.
I'm also excited by these preorders, but there is still a chance to PO them (Nin Nin game still have the Alphamax Nekopara girls at the price I paid, for example. I ordered a bit late tho).
But you will probably be interested in the fact that I preordered Miku in an australian store (Sugo Toys): sugotoys.com.au...
It was the only way for me to avoid a proxy since they ship worldwide. As an european I never thought I would order a figure in Australia one day haha! She is still available (I think that the price is slightly different) but I see that you're in Australia so that would probably be a good deal for you.


Thanks, I'm quite proud of my profile, hehe. My profile feels good and complete but my collection...not so much! There's still so many figures I want. I love that Rei, she's really special. I recently took some photos of her, maybe I should upload them. Anyway, I got very lucky and found a user selling her on here, so that's how I got her. As well as putting her in my wishlist to get sales notifications, I subscribed to the comments on her item page, then crossed my fingers and waited. Speaking of notifications, though, they're not working currently and if I hadn't clicked on this article again (I forgot I'd read this one yesterday, lol) I would not have realised you replied to me!! How annoying when we have such fine things to discuss -- the beauty and radiance of China-dress figures! ;)

Thanks for the heads up about the other stores, I will look into them. Though as an Australian I think I could have actually ordered her through Taobao and not had to have used a proxy; Australia was one of the few countries they shipped to (if I remember right). I just didn't feel like going through the bother of creating an account on a website that's all in Chinese. Very lazy of me, I know; especially when someone on here made a whole helpful article with instructions and tips for how to order through Taobao. But then the deadline passed before I knew it, whoops!

ArchiwheelVor 5 Monaten#86642967Thank you Dtindcarea for your comment on my collection. Yours is amazing. I was amazed by Hayami Kanade ITEM #845670 but since I'm not into The Idolm@ster, I passed. I see that you also own the same GSC Mercedes AMG, are you also interested in motorsports?
Indeed Suzuha is such a great character! This figure is great, especially the bike. When I ordered her in early 2019 on Solaris the aftermarket price was around 20000/22000Y for a sealed one. I have checked a few times since then, and sometimes they have one reasonably priced (not ATM). I don't think that Alter will re-release her: they had a lot of delay because of the details of the bike and they would have said that they will not embark on such a complicated project again (don't remember where I read this).
I'm sure that your Kurisu figure will turn out beautiful!
The others you're watching are also great, I love the sculpt of the Alphamax Kurumi figure. That stomach is so... uhhh!


Yes, that Alphamax sculpt is just amazing. I hope it turns out as good as the initial sculpt.

The bike in the Suzuha figure makes it extra special. I still have hope that someone releases a new figure of Suzuha at some time because the Steins;Gate figures sell well based on what I've seen. Fingers crossed that the Wave Kurisu turns out beautiful.

No, I wouldn't say I follow motorsports although I do occasionally like to watch race events. However, I do like the art and the Miku and Fate racing figures got me into putting together racing displays where I thought that a car or two would be a nice addition. The Miku racing figures are pretty well done and the Fate racing figures, particularly the ones by Stronger, are just super in quality. I also collected a few Evangelion and other anime racing figures so I guess you could say that racing is one of the main themes of my collection. In addition to the 2019 GSC Mercedes Miku car, I have 2016 AMG GT3 Miku car as a slot car (like this ITEM #579835). It was made for slot racing but I took it apart and removed the slot and use it in my displays. View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/12/17/2349300.jpeg The slot car was much cheaper than the die-case version so that's why I did it.

Thanks for your comment about my collection. I think the industry is generally producing better quality figures than in the past (although at a higher cost) so it is a good time to be a collector.

Bah-RooVor 5 Monaten#86643032This was a fun blog to read, I enjoyed how you grouped everything by various unifying themes! You’ve got a nice collection of figures, gotta say I am jealous of a few haha. Also I am jealous of some of your preorders, too; I’m kind of kicking myself for not hitting the preorder button on some of those (the China dress Miku and the Nekopara girls by Alphamax).

dtindcareaVor 6 Monaten#86641121Thanks for the review of your collection. Even though your collection may not be big in quantity, I love your collection and you have a few that are hard to get/rare (at least for a good price) so that makes your collection even more interesting. I'm definitely envious of your Evangelion, To LOVEru, Miku, and Steins;Gate collections.
I really adore that Suzuha Amane but it's so expensive in the aftermarket nowadays that I was hoping that she would get a new figure release soon. I was a latecomer to Steins;Gate as I only did the VN this year but love the characters. I enjoyed Suzuha Amane's route/story/character in the VN in particular so I just wish I could find a figure of her that is nice but also within my price range. As you may recall, I've got Wave's Kurisu on pre-order as well so I'll be getter a figure for her eventually.
Forgot to add that I like the Asuka Wave figure as well. A few others that I'm keeping my eye on:
ITEM #1017064
ITEM #1030346
ITEM #904999
ITEM #1055839
ITEM #1013769
ITEM #1030339

LemonMIntCatVor 6 Monaten#86640121Thanks for your opinion on UC, I may look more into it. It really depends there is maybe 3-4 Miku scales that I may order for early 2021 so I am never sure about OC. And I am excited for the final rebuild movie too. Though I am grumpy Asuka has a white plug suit now as shown in trailer, that makes 5 different suits in the rebuilds. Feels strange that they can’t stick with one design after 3.0.
Aaaw I didn't see that yet! Shame on me! That's so surprizing. I've only seen the avant-première where Asuka doesn't appear. Indeed, it doesn't make much sense (except for merchandizing, I guess?) Thank you for the info.
What are the scale Miku you'd like to order for early 2021?

ArchiwheelVor 6 Monaten#86636789Hi LMC, glad you liked the article and the pictures. I tried to make it attractive.
You definitely won't regret IMO. Steins; Gate is such a brainstorming but OMG... yeah, just OMG!
Also hope that there will be news about ITEM #943602 in january, with the 4th Rebuild movie...
I didn't know ITEM #946263. Yeah, pretty!! Original characters are indeed very tempting.
I'm definitely a Union Creative supporter, their designs are super cool and fortunately I hadn't problems with my figures from them... hope it will continue but I understand the collectors who are upset to have had QC issues. Because of that it's very hard to advise buying their figures.
