Just curious how many of you guys spend money on those merchandises. I'm also one of those who buy. Actually, I'm waiting for my package from AmiAmi right now. It's monthly order for all of those pre-order stuffs I interested in. At the end of each month they ship all the released items on that month to me.

This month they have Saber figma sooo niceee. Gonna wait next month for Irisviel figma to put them together


One thing in Japan is that you miss it this time there is no next time. Popular merchandise mostly do not reproduce. When they stock out their value go up to 2 to 4 times in Amazon. And make you feel the value of goods you have as well.

Yep. Currently collecting the Tiger & Bunny heroes but not the human versions (excepting Tiger), certain Fate/Zero figurines: Saber with the motorcycle (to be released soon)(wish someone would do Lancer and Rider before the prices inflate), as much Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt as I can afford (hope Yamato does Knee Socks as its waaaaay better than the Alter version), PMMM aka Puella [/b]Magi Madoka Magica: getting as many of these characters as can afford in 1/8 PVC, Kurisu Makise 1/8th PVC Steins; Gate which has her walking forward as though she's about to take on the world (best pose of her imo), and many of the characters from the Bakemonogatari series.

There are a few other figurines from series I have no interest in yet. I buying these because the artist/sculptor did such a good job. I have to be careful not to get to carried away on pre-orders otherwise this will become a very expensive hobby by default.

Like you I have Irisviel on pre-order. AmiAmi is just about the least cost over in Japan but you can try KirinHobby (CA, USA) for some of this stuff. They are reasonable compared to FigureHaven, CD Japan, HobbyLinkJapan, or Plamoya. Some of those prices fluctuate weekly depending on what's not so hot. You can also try the collectors on www.myfigurinecollection.net. A few buy extras for resale later and their prices are usually more reasonable than the Japanese stores.

Yeah haha. I spent about one grand cash at the last convention I went to, some was spent on figurines. Still looking for a decently priced Illya from Fate/X .

Yeah you definitely got to decide if you want a figure if you see a pre-order on it. My figure buying has slowed down. Most of the time I buy a figure from a show I like. Luckily most of those shows are older ones or shoujos which usually don't get many figures.

I collected all of the K-ON Alter statues. I wanted to get some figures and at the time that was the popular thing. I also ended up getting the Nendoroid set which I find infinitely more fun than the statues since you can change their expressions and poses, and the K-ON ones are all dressed the same so they have a ton of interchangeable parts.
