Two other sites to visit re anime figurines: Forums of AnimeNewsNetwork: click on FORUMS folder, type the word FIGURINE in search, voila!

And there's also a blogsite: www.myfigurecollection.net. Costs zero to join, lotsa pix, collectors are from all over the planet. I go here to determine what future releases anime figurines I might like and which ones require alternate delivery destination (I'm married, my wife has more sensibilities re dress mode than I do apparently...lol) if they're ever produced. This site also has participating sites where you can compare prices, shipping costs, etc. And some of the collectors will sell their oop extras for an amount less than the going contrived collector rate.

Figurine I would love to see made as 1/8 PVC is FF12's Fran, partner in pirate duo Balthier & Fran. Something about those rabbit ears and platinum hair. There is a cast homage to the duo still on the market but it's mostly crumbling concrete structure supporting the duo in flight aiding and abetting with that motorbike. The characters aren't large enough. Balthier was produced larger but I'm more into female heros than guys.

Does collecting manga count? Cause I have a library full, if not then uhhh... the only anime i've ever collected is FMA and FMA brotherhood with the movies.

The biggest White Whale I have is collecting cels from Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2. I want the cels when Sakura is summoning her wand in the beginning of the movie. I have a few (my pic is one of the cels) and I just want some more so when I flip the pages of my presentation book, It will make the illusion that she is moving.

As a collector of original cels and sketches used in the production of anime, my white wales are all production art related. For example, i'd love to be able to find original sketches from anime series like Aria the animation, Heartcatch Precure, Hayate no Gotoku or any of the Kyoto Animation productions. Thusfar, i've regrettably not been able to track down anything from these particular series.
Of the series from which i do already own a number of original sketches or cels, i'm actively searching for anything from my favourite scenes.
Examples of stuff i'd love to get my hands on are any of the kiss and almost-kiss scenes from Strawberry Panic (Particularly the Underwater Kiss), sketches from the Maria Sama Ni Wa Naisho omake from Marimite and cels from funny scenes in the Cardcaptor Sakura series.

I own a couple of cels from that sequence, actually. (about 4 or 5 IIRC, though i only have one of these in my gallery(http://macroncels.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=295763 ) I'm not interested in selling any of them though.

I seen your gallery before and you have a very nice collection.

I have the cel A11 (to your A10) and 6 others that are spread out during her summoning of her wand. I also collect production sketches and other things related to the production

I was into figures for a while but I don't care about them anymore.

http://myfigurecollection.net/item/43024 was my favourite. I remember making it hug a bottle of vodka.

Good Smile Company's Shiki in Kimono. You can find it, but it sells for at least Y14,000 mint unopened
Feena Fam Earthlight dakimakuras go for at least Y50,000, if you can find them at all...
Yamato's VF-0S. I missed my chance now its hard to get...I never see it for resale.

I recently got one of the ones that have been haunting me for a long time, Alter's FFR-31MR/D Super Sylph Yukikaze. Alter keeps parading around the rest of the Yukikaze line, but they have been showing the same prototypes for years...

Wish list for figures not out:
Amiami's Houki in Akatsubaki (IS Active Mode)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/daroldhiga/6880207211/in/set-72157629327626417

Wish list for Garage kits that I'd like to see as a prepainted by a major:
Yawauna's Kiririn and Kuroneko at Comiket 80
http://www.flickr.com/photos/daroldhiga/6880220363/in/set-72157629327626417
Alucard's Eidelweiss
http://www.flickr.com/photos/daroldhiga/6880220731/in/set-72157629327626417

Figure I probably won't get because I was stupid and missed the pre-order date:
Native's Elfride
http://www.flickr.com/photos/daroldhiga/6880225191/in/set-72157629327626417

Speaking of which...where are the damn Kuroyukihime figures? Yeah, we get the small ones with all of the Dengenki magazines in the next few months, and there is the nendroid...but man, I want regular proportion figures!

Either region 1 or region free, seasons 2-4 + OVA on DVD or Blu-ray of Zero no Tsukaima. Sigh...can't find legit copies anywhere.

Nanoha A's Complete box (or Complete collection) DVD.

I'm looking for it far and wide yet I can't find it (wish I can buy it from someone already).

The official Geneon version (region 1) was only in print for a couple years. I missed out, and right now, it's *really difficult* to find season one or two of the Nanoha TV series. Every major retail site that I checked didn't have any copies. If you want the official DVDs, then keep a close eye on Amazon and auction sites.

The season 2 is the one I'm looking for and it's neither in eBay nor Amazon nor any other place.

My white whale is the Crescendolls from Interstella 5555. They pop up on ebay every once in a while but whenever they do I don't have the money for them;_;

There's a couple of figures of Kanu Unchou, Asuka Langley Soryu, and Rei Ayanami sitting on various sport bikes. Kinda hard to find and expensive as hell... There's also a Tony Taka figure of two catgirl maids or waitresses, very pricey. I'm also looking for cels from "Usagi-chan de Cue!". An older three episode OVA. I've tracked down some of Minami/Inaba , but I'd really like to find some of Koshka, the super hot catgirl in the show. She's really the charatcer that got into catgirls so much in the first place.

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.


LOL!! Wishing in one hand and shit in the other! Wow, my dad used to say the EXACT same thing, rest his soul!

But in addition to that list, I'd add Japanese chefs to cook me REAL Japanese food, esp. the ramen that I ate there! Oh, and if they can make me some MOS Burgers(a burger fanchise there), and some CoCo's Ichibanya Curry that's a HUGE bonus!!
