The Maybes ListThe Maybes List

AkizaAkiza3ヶ月前Misc
For those who don't know I have a secret wishlist called The Maybes. It serves as the in-between for I know I want this Figure and the Figure I know I don't want.

This is the list: LIST #100147

Essentially;
I add stuff to the main wishlist and then a day or 2 until decide I don't want it as much anymore so I either remove it or add it to the maybe's list.

Then 6 months later go and look at it in The Maybes and usually by then I either don't want the figure at all, in which case I remove it or I am still not sure so it stays on that list

For Example This Figure: ITEM #331648

Is a figure I know I want because it has been the main wishlist for almost 2 years.


In Comparison, there is this figure: ITEM #236417

I found it about 4 weeks ago and it stayed on the main wishlist for about 1 week before being moved to The Maybe Wishlist of figures who I am not sure I want.


I feel like having an in-between tier helps manage the main list along with keeping on top of my budget by having such a long period of waiting before deciding if I want to get the figure.

Do You Have an In-between Wish List?

In my case I treat my 'Wished' as an in-between and my list 'Wanted - Opened or sealed' is the one I am actively pursuing (it keeps increasing send halp)

Haha I made a list recently just because of this. I usually add the figurines that I actively plan on getting / hunting to my “wished” section. I started putting so many prototypes that I was half-hearted about onto my wishlist and decided to just make a list for figurines I would buy if I found for a good deal and prototypes I was interested in.

Technically, no, I don't have an in-between list.

But I have lists of figures I once followed but gave up POing for various reasons, mostly prices, and I might got figures in those lists eventually if I could get it for a bargain price or something... Do those lists count?

I do have a do-not-forget list for non-released figures. Even though I could instead use the sort-by-release-date function. (but it's too cumbersome)

My wishlist is made up of the must-haves and maybes. I check my wishlist every time I log in on mfc, and see if any item should be removed. I only remove the ones I'm sure I'm never ever getting.

I just use the star ranking system in my wishlist.

I do have another list for thing I am 100% going to buy once they price-drop though.

I used to have a maybe list but then I decided I didn't need it. I have a small list of figures I want (mainly ones that aren't up for pre-order yet). Once they go up to preorder if I still love it then I'll order it. If I'm not feeling it then I don't think I'll ever buy it (the only exception are for figures I know will decrease in price and be easy to find later one, I normally don't take this risk though).

But I have maybe 20 figures on my wishlist which consists of 2 that are released/up for preorder already. I know theres people who have hundards of figures on their wishlist XD

I've had one for a while too. First list I made actually. LIST #48241

I use it for stuff I kinda want or generally like, but not really enough to know it's a for sure purchase to stick on the wishlist. Sometimes I just stick things on here to keep an eye on them then may remove them later, kinda like a bookmark to their page. Others just get stuck in a "maybe" purgatory to be there forever. A couple of lowkey grails that I'd love to own but am not really actively seeking because I know they're either just unavailable or way too high a price that I even care to think about paying are thrown in there too as it's just something that I'm not focusing as much on.

Last WonFes, and probably something I'll do for WonFes a lot in the future, is just stick everything I find interesting here first, then sort after it's over to remove or the real wishlist.

SnowZelda (3ヶ月前) #39833399Yeah! I think it's smart to have a "Maybe" List. There re so many things to consider when deciding to pre-order! (Price, Company, Design, and in some cases, pretty order bonuses). It's a good way to organise everything.
I also have a "when I have money to burn..." which never comes of any use XD
It has 380 items in it lol



May steal the when I have money to burn idea.

I have a similar method, except that my "wished" section is for my maybes, and I have a short list of figures that I've really wanted for a while. I have to have had my eye on a figure for at least a few weeks for it to be added to the short list and I remove items from it often, so whenever I get some extra $ I buy from that list because I know I won't regret it :D
