I like to collect figures, but really only when I go to cons. I got about 11 figures, but only 7 are from anime's. I have a Boa Hancock, Fire-Fist Ace, Whitebeard, and Hawk-Eye Mihawk all from One Piece. I also have a Sailor Moon, a Misa Amane from Death Note, and a Asuna Yuki from SAO. The non-anime ones are Jon Snow, Robb Stark, and Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, and a Rapunzel figure.

Yep, I just started a year ago. I thought the idea of collecting your favorite characters were cool, and I'm a huge art junky. Collecting figures is an expensive hobby and most of them are either from the Crunchyroll Store or from AmiAmi. I currently own 5 figures from Kill la Kill and about 6 more on the way (Kiss-shot, Ryuko 1/8, Satsuki figma, and etc). http://myfigurecollection.net/profile/fieryfayte

I collect Funko Pops that I like, but I've never seen the appeal in spending $100+ on what is essentially a decoration.

I started collecting a year ago. I've always wanted too but been super hesitant about it but once I got one I knew it was the hobby for me. I collect a variety so I enjoy nendoroids a lot, then statues, then game prizes. Game prizes I tend to only get if they are particularly good, crossovers (such as the Konata x Kancolle) or for animes that don't have any figures available for whatever reason (like Ginko from Yurikuma Arashi: Love Bullet).

I'm at 30+ and my core collection is a lot of Lucky Star/Konata and Kuroneko from Oreimo. I have some Monogatari, Sonico, YuruYuri and K-On :3 I have some pre-orders I'm waiting on at the moment such as Himouto Uramu-chan and Kotori (Love Live) X'D I'm having to slow down my figures buying for the next year and a half because I'm saving up for an event/travel. It is an expensive hobby and kind of addictive. It's so fun to have them and I love looking at them!

Well i have two (A Kyoko Sakura figma and a beautiful Morgiana figure from MegaHouse) but I don't really collect them no.

I kindof bought them on an impulse, but its become a sort of yearly thing. I get just one around the same time each year and that's probably the only way i'd be able to keep myself from spending tons of money on them

I've just started collecting figures! Right now I have 4, Super Sonico, Kirito from Sword Art, Kirino from Oreimo, and Madoka from Madoka Magica.

I'm definitely going to be collecting more. My next one is going to be the Umaru Nendroid from Himouta! Umaru-chan

I only have a couple of nendoroids (and their various licensed counterparts) and use them mostly to take pictures with artwork I've either purchased or received from various mangaka and character designers and them send a tweet to them showing my appreciation.


Like this...I won this at YaoiCon last year to its artist.



I do like the nendoroids and their interchangeable expression, though. Thanks to Yahoo Japan selling their expressions, I've bought many different faces and have fun taking pictures with my standard redhead figure I use.

No, if I were to collect anything it would be what I enjoy the most, the ACTUAL episodes on DVD or better yet Blu-Ray.

I only have one (Cecilia Alcott from Infinite Stratos) but I intend to get more, starting with the Hyperdimension Neptunia figures that are available for pre-order.

I used to, but now as I get older I need to conserve money better. I got a few Evangelion figures, One Piece, and Oreimo. Maybe when I get settled housing wise I'll start again since I don't have a nice display that doesn't scream "NERD!" Figures of any kind look best when they're displayed well in a nice case.
