This is an anime forum, so I figure a good number of our members here also collect things, like figures, statues, models, animation cels, what have you.

It's a good way to enrich the experience of the show or film you love, which is why the collecting industry has become so much more popular nowadays ,with companies like Sideshow Collectibles, NECA, Megahouse, Medicom, etc, it has become clear that figures are not just for children. Or you know, whatever it is you collect.

On a side note, I'm surprised we don't have a collectibles subforum... I mean considering the nature of this forum.

Ok, so the idea here is, to fellow collectors out there, what are your white whales? To be more specific, what are those collectibles you are just dying to have but have thus far been unsuccessful in getting them because they're too rare, too expensive, or maybe don't even exist yet .


Since this is my thread, I'll start

Saint Seiya Myth Cloths


Lyumnades Kaza - He's the only one of Poseidon's Sea Generals that I'm missing. He's very rare, some people in Hong Kong are selling him, but since China is notorious for bootlegs, I'm not sure if I want to chance that...

Hades - true form- Another rare figure, and one of the best looking Myth Cloths made. However, he is due for a reissue next month, so my hopes are looking up for this one

Typhon- he sadly doesn't exist yet. Typhon was the main antagonist of Saint Seiya Episode G, and he has a very nice looking set of armor. Typhon is also my favorite figure from actual Greek Mythology so I'm really hoping for this one.

Mephistopheles Yoma- One of Hades spectres. He is also not released, but with the lost canvas releases of Tenma and Bennu Kagaho, there is hope for him


One Piece

Figuarts Zero Magellan- Prototypes of him have been shown with both a Figuarts of Hannyabal and Sadi-Chan. Currently there is no known release date for them, but damnit I can't wait

Grand Ship Collection Blackbeard Pirates raft- So far the Grand Ship collection models have only released Going Merry , Thousand Sunny, Heart Pirates Submarine, and most recently, Shank's ship, the Red Force. I'm holding out hope that my favorite character's ship (which is a oversized raft) gets a release too at some point.

Ha, I'm a greedy bitch so whilst wishing in one hand and shitting in the other, I would like to own every anime that has ever existed. Every special version, every collector's edition, every barebones edition, and hell, since I'm already about to go into an avarice-induced coma, I'd also like every manga ever too. In Japanese. With my own person array of Asians to read it to me. Oh yeah, and I need a mansion to store all this shit. With a full staff of people to cook, clean, and take care of all the "little people" stuff.

Just sayin, if you're gonna dream, dream big.

The biggest "white whale" I own (at present) are the "Soul Eater" figures. Love the anime, the figures that I have suck.

I think you kinda miss the point. This isn't about about fantasy desires, it's about collectors sharing what pieces of their collections that they are missing.

I may miss the point, but I never miss my target.

I collect anime in general, I failed to mention that. Even if I am not as advanced of a collector, I would contend that completing one's collection is the "fantasy desire" of all collectors, regardless of whether some people's wishes are more fantastical than others. :)

On a side note, photos?! I love mooning over people's collections.

That may still be attainable. I know they were selling the CC series bundle on RightStuf a while back for like $80 for the whole series.

Another White Whale for me would be to have the Dragon Quest series on DVD.

Extra bonus if it was the limited TV release of the first 13 episodes in English.

That is a very good idea. I think we should encourage people to post their collections or photos of that special piece they're missing.

It's always fun to show off and look at other people's collection

Update: I just acquired a Lyumnades Kaza from a seller in Japan and was able to confirm it not being a bootleg. It's gonna take a bit of time to ship here and it was expensive as fuck, but I'm still satisfied.

strike one from my list
