I have about 2 grand in figures on my desk.

RIght above the 3 grand of Anime dvd's.

It didn't take to long to obtain that much, but it's best to buy early, and own them long term. That way you get the most out of them!

I say get VCR tapes are much better. (Then you can pretend you are much older than you really are.)

Certain figures really do jump the price up. Figma's are at a general 40-100 each, and I like them, but I have two figures up and over 150 each, and I intend to buy a set of $300's after the new Fate/Heavens Feel anime comes out, just BECAUSE.

Actually, I think those 300's are more like 400's. Let me check.
And they are about 200-250 each.


The key to collecting DvD's is to know what series you can get for cheap, and which you should wait for. IF I bought the original release of FLCL when I first, FINALLY saw it, I would have spent a solid $95 to get those 6 episodes. I didn't have the money back then, but after I had a job and all that other crazy stuff years later, Funimation get's the distribution rights and provides me with a $15 dvd set at my local Best Buy...now THAT IS A STEAL.

You got to know what to look for. Cowboy Bebop is expensive but Trigun is dirt cheap, $25 for all the episodes, that's like a dollar a piece!
Then you have "The Slayers" and that massive 3 season over 80 episode set for $45 I got...oh man.

aaaand i own all 7 seasons of Ranma 1/2, along with the OVA's. Then you have 3 Seasons of Dragonball, all 9 Seasons of Dragonball Z, AND the two seasons of Dragonball GT because dude, cheap.
Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam was expensive too, 65 a half, then you have NGE and .Hack/Sign which generally run at 100 for their box sets.

I do a bit of math and I buy what I can when I can.

I think Genshiken puts it best.

Sometimes people have to make sacrifices for their hobbies. Why eat good food, drive a good car, and live comfortably when you can instead indulge in your own hobby?

The day I offered to buy Pizza for the family instead of making my Mom and Dad do it for me, that horrible horrible day I realized Pizza was expensive as hell. I stopped buying Pizza and started buying Figures as well as dvd's.

If you think about it, 2 Large Pizzas = 1 Figure or DvD set. DRINK WATER AND EAT RAMEN NOODLES, YOU'RE AN OTAKU RIGHT? SPEND YOUR MONEY THE RIGHT WAY.

LOL VCR's huh? I do like my anime in High Def though but having a few of those one's ain't so bad!

Dang mister your DVD collection is amazing. I never realize you can get them that cheap though. Usually I buy anime's that are around 12 to 25 episodes. Although I might get some that have more episodes... Ugh FMA;Brotherhood. And they don't sell them cheap here too.

Oh damn I know what you mean buy buying your family food. I tried treating them at a restaurant since it was my mother's birthday and holy hell the bill. After a while I realize I wouldn't do it as often as I would. Since I pay bills and all too.

Well, I have my eye on a set of the seven deadly sins. Just two will cost me about 400 bucks. Looks like I gotta save up if I want them.

Asmodeus is out too and the next one coming in Fall is Belphegor. Man completing this set is sure as hell nice though.

It's funny how if you buy them with the special item (coin purse, tissue cover, handkerchief Etc.) they tend to be more expensive haha

I think you're quite the creep for saying that about lolis, and "don't get jealous" what are you talking about ? I'm jealous of morons who spend a fortune on plastic soft core porn toys ? Sarcasm [On] off - Yes I'm very jealous that I'm not foolish enough to spend my income on overpriced assembly line garbage.


Sarcasm On [Off]

There's nothing assembly line about them, they're all handmade . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyQiKi87CX4&feature=youtu.be&t=35m48s
This practice is typical of all figures above the $50 mark, regardless of studio.

I'd like to see you sculpt anything that looks even remotely close to an anime character from clay.

Post your results for a gold star.

In a few year from now I bet VCR tapes will be expensive.

I still have my Pokemon Blue for my Gameboy Color!
