My birthday is only three days away, and this time I'm really excited! My partner decided to buy me a figure, but 1)he wanted it to be a surprise gift, and 2)he was afraid to make a mistake. My solution was, to give him two options to choose from! I still don't know which of the two I'm getting - Aegis ITEM #61647 or Akarin ITEM #94711. They aren't among my favourite characters, nor do I like the origins, but they seem so incredibly stylish and elegant!

S1257Vor 7 Jahren#1688442I guess that makes sense. I wasn't trying to be mean or anything, I just personally wouldn't want something from a series I don't like.
You're fine, it's perfectly acceptable to ask! :3 I'd probably just chalk it up to everyone has different collecting tendencies. ^^

I don't blame you though, Aegis is SO pretty. Kinda hope you got her. :>

I don't understand why you want them.

A good chunk of my wishlist is figures of characters that I don't even know, so I get where you're coming from on that lol. Guys, there's somethng called "liking figures for their aesthetics"; it's not always the "wrong thing" to get a figure of a character that isn't your top favorite in your most favorite of all time series, lol. But anyway ( ̄▽ ̄)

Sounds really fun! I'd love to receive a figure as a surprise; my family used to do that years ago but now they just give me the money and I buy the figures myself for my birthday and etc lol...And next year I doubt I'll get anything for holidays because I'll probably use all the money towards a doll >>

its much better you ask him to buy A figure from an anime/ game you actually enjoy but you dont know what is it.


The thing is, even in your favorite series, there may be characters you don't enjoy; or in the case of a character you enjoy, the character is in a uniform you don't like, or there's a specific figure of him you don't like (for example, I love this series: ENCYCLOPEDIA #25, and in it, this character in particular: ENCYCLOPEDIA #2578, but I find this specific figure of her: ITEM #19425 really awful and I definitely wouldn't want it, while I'd love to get this one: ITEM #24938)

So I think Yoruno's solution of asking the person a pool of 4 to 8 figures he'd like the most, and choosing one among them, is the better one to get a sure-fire result. I know that the most important, when giving a present to someone, is the thought behind it, but it's even better when the person genuinely enjoys it as well.

(Alternately, if you have extra money, you can always prepare a second surprise present. If you hit the jackpot and the person loves it, that's awesome; if you don't, at least the person will still be happy with the sure-fire present. I try to do that whenever possible with my closest relatives).

I think its not a suprised b'day gift for you because you know what item will you get.

its much better you ask him to buy A figure from an anime/ game you actually enjoy but you dont know what is it.

like my sister b'day gift, I give her figma Phantasmoon ITEM #93481 but she doesn't know about it. She really surprised and very excited when she opened the b'day gift box coz she get a figma phantasmoon.

Die4MePlsVor 7 Jahren#1687416 Or you could, y'know, get a figure from a series that you actually like...
My faves are too expensive to ask for them...

I've just received the news that the surprise gift has arrived. Three more days to wait! But I suspect he bought me Akari...
