My first figure was Jubei-Chan. I got her a couple of years ago on a whim after watching a battle in Jubei-Chan 2 in which both opponents effectively fling themselves off of a cliff and fight on the way down.

At one point I had a very elaborate system of rules like: "Only one of any given character", "only from an anime series I've seen", "every figure must be in an outfit seen somewhere in the show", etc.

But then I decided to relax my rules for video game characters since I don't have time to play *every* game and lots of games don't make it out of Japan but the characters are, well, really cool. And, of course, I had to punch another hole in the rules for Tony Taka characters.

The critical blow finally came when a friend gave me a second Belldandy figure for helping him move along with a copy of Figure Maniacs. (It's not a cheap magazine but get at least one for the experience; it's amazing!) The number of figures I *had* to have after looking through it exploded!

So with my entire system of rules in ruins, I now buy nearly anything. Usually I'll buy something solely because it's cute and/or armed. An unforeseen consequence has been the number of erogame figures I've ended up with. :-o

A little moe goes a long way with me but beautiful, armed women absolutely rock my world. I don't care if it's a gun, sword, scythe, dagger or paper fan but I really love strong female characters. It's tempting to say that I like tsundere-type characters but that's not quite right. What I love is the seemingly contradictory mix of soft and tough in a character, which is very appealing, but I'll leave the mean-spirited characters on the doorstep nearly every time.

As much as I've come to love figures in recent years, I've loved photography even longer. It took me a while to realize the perfect marriage between my two hobbies. Since then, though, I've had a blast.

I have a great camera and nice lenses but the rest of my setup is pretty basic basic. I first started shooting my figures from on top of an old microwave during the winter months when the sunlight would come into my windows during a certain time of day. The feet on it were perfect for sliding around the floor trying to chance the ever-moving light. These days I shoot from a table top and have dedicated lights.

Some day I'll get the last few bits of camera gear that will give me the most creative freedom but, new gear or not, I'm sill learning a lot. It's amazing that something so seemingly simple as figure photography can hold such great depth and potential after all this time.

Because of my technical background I'm pretty decent with the technical aspects of photography but my real goal is to be more creative. I think I'm slowly coming around but I have a long way to go. Whether I get there (wherever "there" is) fast or slow, the journey will be fun.

we have a few same figures on the list..hehe xD love live yee xD what is your pair in love live...?
Snow Miku 2017 design is up for voting - [ext link ]

The theme is Hokkaido stargazing/constellations. I really like the feel of #4, but not sure if it will blend in well with the past year's ones. I also really like the accessories that come with #3 and #5. Not really wowed by the Yukine selections. Any one but the graduation Yukine would be fine, IMO.

Tsunami3k (1年前) #6661381Cool. Lemme know how much I owe you.
GSC takes it out when it's shipped, so it'll be 6500 yen in July. Hopefully the yen will bounce back above 120 at that time.
Tsunami3k (1年前) #6661368Ah, just saw this. Not a lot of people are PO'ing her? She seems plenty cute. You're ordering then?
Yeah, I'll order two now. POs are a little over 400 now and they were over 1000 last year for the 2015 one. I can't say I'm particularity excited for her like the magical girl one, but she'll be a welcomed addition to the bunch. She'll make a nice action pose which a lot of Miku figures lack IMO.
You in for another Miku? She's a bit pricier (4500 last year, 5500 this year) and POs seem to be down a lot this year, so no problem if you don't want to this time. I'm in either way. PO ends 6am Monday, so let me know by tonight.
Tsunami3k (1年前) #3463431Hi there Findra. I sent you a couple of PM's about the Lineage figure I bought from you a bit ago so, on the chance that you haven't seen them yet, the TLDR; is that she's missing her base and her sword. If there's anything you can do to help, I'd be very grateful. Thanks!

Hi Tsunami,
Sorry, I just saw your PM. Since I already done with this hobby I need to dig through some boxes to see if I still have the base and sword. I will get back to you in a little bit.

Tsunami3k (2年前) #3186466It's a good thing CR was able to send you a new Aoba. Most of the time it seems like they order just enough to honor 70-100% of their presales.
That remains to be seen. I sent it back a month ago and have yet to get anything from them. I should probably send them an email…

Tsunami3k (2年前) #3186466Oh, speaking of Miku Nendo's, I ordered an extra Harvest Moon Miku so, if you don't have one lined up, you're welcome to call her your own. Just so you know, I also got another dude, presuming Nendoroids count:item #287858.
I’ll definitely take the Miku. Thanks. I’ve never heard of the source for that other Nendo but the design is real nice and gotta love a GSC shop exclusive omake. I wish I had a PSP to play more JRPGs.
Tsunami3k (2年前) #3161579I've got a few duplicates so the smaller number is probably distinct items. Between my Miku in-flight and the Amazon.jp purchase today, the odds are really good that my Yamato preorder will be #1000; a fitting spot for an upper-end figure (although Musashi floats my boat even more [Hah! Kancolle humor!], she got delayed so not much of a chance there) or maybe, just maybe, next month's Nakahara Tomoe preorder could land on that treasured spot...even more fitting since it's from my favorite Tony Taka image (and perhaps my favorite image in the all of ever [I'm lookin' at you Mona Lisa!]).
Had I planned better I could have splurged on a most-wanted figure like Cheerful Miku or Kos-Mos/T-Elos Swimsuit but, sadly, I have tragically squandered that chance.
Any big plans for #400?

Not really. It’ll be whatever comes in first. I have 16 figures to go and I should have 18 figures in the mail system currently. It’ll probably be one of the 13 figures that are being shipped by ShoppingMallJapan. If one of the others are late it may be the Snow Miku that should ship this week. With any luck it will be the Aoba replacement that CR shipping messed up. We’ll see.

In an unrelated note, Alice item #288793 turned out nice. But I’m a little apprehensive b/c I’ve never heard of Myethos manufacturer. I see they’ve only done two other figures that haven’t even been released. Do you know if they are a branch off of another company like Stronger was?
I see you are approaching your 1000th figure. Not sure if you’re at 987 or 976 or why there is a difference in the “owned” figures and figure “items.” Any plans? Going to splurge on a figure that’s been in your wished list a while? Special case or special place in the detolfs?
Not dead, I swear.
Lucky! 77777!
Tsunami3k (2年前) #2861094Hey, the yen/$ is really great right now....*You can't not buy it!!*
I've had my eye on this one:
item #195992

I was liking that one too.
The yen is great now but maybe not in July. :x
