Do you buy figures of characters you don't know?Do you buy figures of characters you don't know?Ask MFC

I was curious how often people buy figures of characters they do not know, not just in the case of Original Character figurines but established media characters you don't have a interest in the source material in but you just love the character design so much you need them anyway? How important is the emotional connection to the character to you in buying figures?

I rarely buy figures I don't know/don't consume media for, both design and emotional connection are important to me but there have been exceptions (and there have been times in the past I sought out source material just cause I liked a figure).

At the moment I only own ITEM #435 and ITEM #292247 as far as figures I know little to nothing about the source material for. I also bought ITEM #148279 before playing the game a while, since have stopped but still like the figure. Similar situation for ITEM #744042 which I used to be a fan of but lost interest in the series but still liked the character enough to keep.

A few figures I don't follow the source material for but am interested in collecting are:

ITEM #972
ITEM #3833
ITEM #1128615
ITEM #932045

How about everyone else?

njdrawscomicsVor 14 Stunden#92755570Ooh never seen that one before, as a digital artist it speaks to me lol. I might keep an eye on that one.

That is exactly why I bought her. There is a coulour variant too where here coloura are CMYK, but I prefer this one

Yes but rarely
I usually buy figures which I know and like the source of. However if the figure is absolutely stunning to me then I will get it. Even now I have figure on my Wishlist that I don't know the source of. Tho I try not to get every figure that appeals to me due to limited space and money.

95% of the time I only buy figures of characters that I’m familiar with but there was one exception last year of a badass looking dude (from a Chinese series I think?) that was too cool to pass up so I got him. He still hasn’t arrived thanks to whatever mess the mailing system is right now tho :’)

There was also another figure by Myethos from the Honor of Kings series that was just gorgeous and I saw her slowly going out of stock but had to let her pass because I didn’t have enough money for her. I don’t have any rules for myself other than to stick to what I can afford so I’ve had to let a few pass that I probably would’ve gotten, even though I don’t know the character.

I try to buy characters that I know, and at this point in my collection I have 4 that I didn't know the source material of. Myethos Zhang(not on MFC), Petits Palette, Geniewiz nendo, and an OC Bunny from freeing.

I used to occasionally buy from. Series I didn't know but they never make it through my purges. So I have slowly learned a lesson.

ITEM #851345

Yes and that's why I'm running out of space.
Some (in)famous examples (infamous cuz my wallet is crying) include figures from FGO (I know FSN and FZ but not FGO), Azur Lane, NGNL... Also I'm pretty sure all except for one of the adult figures I bought are characters I don't know :_)

I am so shocked by how many responses this got! As I said in last comment I am enjoying reading every single one and happy most people are being nice about their opinions. Everyone has their own ways and personal rules. It's quite fascinating.

Short answer: no.
Long answer: I don’t have enough space or funds to purchase a figurine of a character/franchise I know absolutely nothing about. I would rather spend that money on a character I do know, although there’s nothing wrong with doing the opposite!
