I collect artwork used in the production of various anime, and also sketches drawn by the artists themselves, usually drawn on shikishi or acid free paper. One thing I like to do is take a pic with one of my nendos reacting to it, and then sending that to artist with a small thank you note.

This was one of my more recent ones, not sure why it's uploading upside down.

Is it wrong that as I was looking at that I was trying to figure out the cost of a collection like that?

I'm impressed.

I've been collecting for years now, so it's an over time accumulation.
That being said, between the figures, plush (only took pictures of the figures for this set), other merch, manga, and anime I'm sure it's more than my brand new car costs straight off the lot. I'm honestly afraid to go back and try to figure it out, so I'd rather be blissfully ignorant.

Got curious... should've remained blissfully ignorant. My manga collection, assuming it's around 2k volumes, probably cost me somewhere around 15,000USD. The figure and merch collection, according to the tallies on MFC with what all I own, puts me at 2,246,550yen. So with the current really good yen/dollar rates it'd be less than 20k, but considering that's only recent I'm assuming more toward 25k. And then you have the EMS shipping for them every month and etc etc. And this isn't even adding all my anime boxsets and other stuff.

... Yeah, should've just not checked.

Reminder folks -- keep number of images per post reasonable, and don't unnecessarily quote images, even if they are in spoiler tags--they still load with the page even if they are spoilered.

So far I haven't seen anyone go completely nuts with posting images, but all those quotes (which I've now removed the images from)!!

Me, I collect nothing, but it's fun to look at other people's stuff sometimes.

I've collected quite a few figures and plush over the years, but what I like to consistently collect and display are Kagamine Rin and Len items. As for the others, I change out from time to time what figures I keep on my desk and bookcase shelves for decoration. What's not displayed stays boxed, in the closet in storage bins, and out of the way!

Yeah, I don't like to think about how much I've spent either. It gets complicated when you start calculating how much you've spent to attend the conventions where you've picked up these items. I was having a discussion with another collector about this some time back, and we both came to the conclusion that a $2K charity auction sketch can, once you account for hotel, airfare to the con and meals, turn into a $3K sketch.
