How to handle figure doubtコメント • How to handle figure doubt

    When in doubt, don't. I find it helps me to keep an extremely small wishlist-- the less I see of a figure I'm only momentarily interested in, the less likely I am to purchase it.

    Figure doubt -to me at least- means that I'm still unsure whether my heart actually desires that figure or not, so I'll put off buying it, no matter whether it's a rare or second hand or whatnot figure.
    If I regret not buying it by the time it's sold out, well then I know to scarf up on it next time it pops up somewhere :, D (This has happened multiple times already actually, but I'm very careful with my figure purchases so it's still the better choice IMO!)

    Skellington (5ヶ月前) #29666973Thank you for all the helpfull answers, really appreciate it:) how would you solve the yu yu hakusho problem I mentioned? (Second post in this blog)

    I think some points you can consider are:

    - the availability and price of Yu Yu Hakusho figures currently at your local store or the website you use frequently. If you can get them easily now, chances are you will still be able to get them even if you miss the pre-order now. One example will be Alter K-on figure which is in my wish list while I take my time to collect them since they are readily available at YAJ and locally.

    - I think there are 5 of them right in the Yu Yu Hakusho figure series? If you had made up your mind to get them, you need not get them all at one go. from the availability and price infomation which you gathered earlier on, choose the one which is hardest and expensive to get in the aftermarket and pre-order that 1st. as for the rest, you can slowly hunt in the aftermarket.

    - critically compare and review the Yu Yu Hakusho figures (first impression on pose, coloring, where they will fit in ur collection, etc) against some of your fav shonen figures. I am pretty much a shounen series lover also but with the amount of anime, it is virtually impossible to get all of them. sacrifices had to be made.

    - not advisable for your study but try sneak in one/two episodes/volume of anime/manga while you are taking a break from study/toilet break/before you sleep, etc. this is how i balance my study and anime watching activities haha obviously, you will not be able to finish the show at one go but it may give you some context and help in your decision making in getting those figures or not.

    mukyuu (5ヶ月前) #29655158How I deal with figure doubt: If I doubt too much, I probably don't really want it so I don't buy it.
    Agreed. But sometimes, there's also the price and size issues. Me too, have been putting some figures twice in my wishlist. But those aren't the ones I actually bought.

    Skellington (5ヶ月前) #29652606Hey thanks for the answer :) easy to drop nayuta then XD as I don't think her cuteness will stick. Problem is more with yu yu hakusho I know that I definetly want to watch it because I like shounen series but don't know if it's going to be good and since exams are going to start soon-ish I won't have time to watch it but I also know that the figures were very expensive but now they're getting re released and by the time I get around to watching it I might have missed my chance to getting them, if I like the show that is and since they are all releasing in june and may those months will ne even costlier and will make it more difficult to get figures I'm very certain about if they also release in those months.

    Then order them at a shop were you can cancel like hlj.

    I have that fairly often, my secondary wishlist LIST #56992 is all figures I'm not sure about. I usually hold off preordering and see if I still want them and can grab them after release. More often than not I end up not getting them.

    You have a figure on your wishlist but aren't sure about it so you keep deleting it but still have doubts about wether or not to buy so you add it again but some time later delete it again etc <<-- have been through the same situation. Personally speaking, end of the day, those figures are the ones which you do not like it enough to want to own them. I advise you to move on to others instead. this can save alot of money and space in the long run. Being a completionist is not worth it when you are spending on figures that you like half-hardheartedly. the money can be used to get those in your "favorite, must bring home display" type of figures

    Stopped reading halfway and got the gist of it. You think too much.
    I'd say stop caring about completing lines.
    Here's how I do things:
    If you like a character and the figure looks nice, I go for it.
    If it's just the design I like I get into the show. If I don't hate it, I consider it. But stuff I want more will always take priority over it.
    Money is always a deciding factor. But trying to complete a set will get you nowhere. ever.
    I completed a set before and felt nothing, just the end of something. "oh that's nice. what now?"
    It doesn't help that figure companies themselves hardly ever give us every character from a show, AND sometimes there are so many that it'd be crazy to own them all. Look at fate or kancolle.
    Find what's really important to you, and do what your heart tells you.

    It's interesting to read that some consider the to and fro doubts to mean they don't want it.

    I usually find if I'm going back and forth over something it's because I do want to pick it up. There's been a few times where I convince myself I don't want it, only to buy it at a higher price on release.
