Yes! It's a shorter list this time too!!!

I need a job that pays in Yen and not American dollars for this hobby. Stupid exchange rate.

That shorter list from last time.

Still someday...

Sigh... Marisa has been on these lists for the longest time and that might actually change this weekend.

I think I will just cancel my order with Play-Asia since there is a nice unopened Marisa sitting on Mandrake right now.

November

This figure looks so pretty, I really want to get her already. Paying for it, that's another story.

I really like the Metis and Aigis figma versions, they seem almost elegant.

Speaking of Persona, a port of P2: Innocent Sin was announced for the PSP, makes me quite happy.

December is almost upon us, that's when the movie gets released on DVD and blu ray right? I wonder if it will follow the trend of having English subs like the Nanoha movie or the BRS OVA.

Anyways, I look forward to Haruhi figma number 5 in my collection.

I finished re-watching the first season of Strike Witches and was once again reminded that there will no more pantless flying action anymore.

Once again, good thing Max Factory will cheer up fans with a figma of Miyafuji.

December

Did you guys watch the Railgun OVA? I did and it made me want more Railgun stuff. Now that Uiharu has also up for reservation the chances of me cancelling Saten are pretty low.

Is there a western release of Eva 2.22 out yet? While I still haven't watched the first part I kinda want to watch the second more to see some Asuka action.

I seriously don't want this anymore, this is why I still tend to get stuff at Hobby Search, the convenience of being able to cancel orders. I wish you could cancel as easily with AmiAmi as it is possible with Hobby Search.

January

I'm too much of a fan of Index and Railgun, enough that I would choose to get the bundle of the game just for the Biri Biri figma.

Then there is Kuroko, which I will track down without the game and the Dengeki exclusive MISAKA figma. Getting these three figmas wont be cheap.

Rei and Asuka, I really can't think of them separately. That's why I plan to get both of the figmas.

No, Shinji does not enter into the picture at all if you are wondering.

February

February cant get here soon enough. Once I get this Kos-Mos figma I could happily retire from figma collecting with no regrets.

Not that I have any plans to do so.

I will probably get these too

Never before would I have thought that I would want an Uiharu figure. Then Alter comes and proves me wrong.

Of all the poses I think that choosing the snap in time after Saten flips Uiharu's skirt is perfect.

I haven't pre-ordered her yet for one reason, late March is really far away. I seriously have no idea what my funds will be by then.

I'm a really big Touhou fan and as such I would like to get all the Touhou figmas.

However, the only place I found where I can reliable get them for a decent price is Otacute. The fact that you can't cancel pre-orders and the bad after taste I ended after Otacute's mistake with Sakuya make me want to shy away from them.

With that said, if anyone knows of a good place to get Touhou figmas let me know.

This is good, this time I did not add anything at all to my pre-orders.

Twitter : )

HA! This time it is shorter!

Even if it's by only one figure.

Last month's list as usual.

Someday...

I think Play-Asia is never gonna ship Marisa to me. I been waiting since May, and the release date has been moving up and up ending with a TBA.

So, gonna keep an eye on Mandrake, if anyone spots one let me know.

October

I was happily looking forward to getting Selvaria on September but alas a delay occurred. Now slated for a late October release, such a shame.

I can't wait to get this figma in my hands. The Dead Master design is so appealing to me plus I'm sure BRS figma is feeling lonely without her lovely friend.

November

I really like this figure, I really am looking forward to it. However, I been feeling tempted to drop her and use that money instead to buy a few articulated figures instead.

Still got the rest of October to think it over.

I still like Persona 3 as much as before, so not much to say about that.

Plus something I like about both Aigis and Metis is that being robots the joints really are negligible aesthetically speaking.

Not that figma joints have ever bothered me in the first place.

So, loli Haruhi was shipped to me earlier this week making her fourth Haruhi figma. Even though I have four already I still happily look forward to my fifth.

Quite saddened that Strike Witches ended. What better way to cheer myself up than with a figma of one of the 501st girls right?

December

Thinking about it, I'm not quite sure why I am attracted to Alter's rendition of Saten Ruiko. It seems though many people are since there is a waiting list for her at Hobby Search.

I kinda regret a little not getting Koto's or Alter's Asuka since the pictures I been seeing of the former look quite good.

Luckily for me I will get the figma version to make forget all that regret.

I kinda don't want the BRS blu-ray anymore now that I own the DVD that came with the BRS figma. Not that I can do much about it since I can't cancel AmiAmi orders.

If anyone cancelled with AmiAmi before let me know how.

January

This annoys me, why are all the Railgun figmas exclusives or bundles?

I will still happily get Biri Biri with the bundle since it's a game I can actually play.

As far Kuroko I will wait for the figma to show up on Mandrake without the game. Same thing for MISAKA, kinda clever though that there will be only 20,000 of them. Yeah, I want at least 3 Sisters.

Since I'm getting Asuka it's pretty obvious to get Rei as well right?

I'm pretty sure I mentioned before that I tend to think of certain characters as a pair or group. Asuka and Rei are one such occurrence.

February

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL!

I'm pretty sure everyone at once point wished one character or another got the figma treatment. This is mine.

If I could only buy only one figma, or if for reason I had to sell all my figmas, or if could only save one from destruction, it would be Kos-Mos. That's how much I want this figma, that's how much I like Kos-Mos.

I arrived late to the party so I didn't get to buy many Kos-Mos figures when they where released and the after market prices for some of them make it unlikely I will buy them anytime soon. So when I get the opportunity to buy one as it releases I don't think twice about it.

February seems so far away.

Twitter : )

I was pretty sure it was gonna be a shorter list...

... er... I wonder if I will be able to pay all this... -_-

This list just keeps growing and growing.

Last time's list.

September

Eh...Sakuya got delayed until late September not fun, not fun at all.

I manged to find her available at Otacute, I never bought anything from them before. I will count this as a trial to see if I will get the future Touhou figmas from Otacute.

Stupid Play-Asia, everyone has been happily enjoying their Marisa but not me. Marisa originally had a May release but kept slipping to the next month over and over again.

Finally, it was a given a September release date, I sure hope that is the case at least I will get her together with Sakuya.

The other day I played the demo for Valkyria Chronicles 2 on the PSP, I was reminded why I liked the gameplay of the first title so much.

With Valkyria Chronicles 2's release this figure will make the perfect accompaniment to me as a fan of the series and of Selvaria. Yes, I already got my copy of Valkyria Chronicles 2.

Almost forgot, go buy Valkyria Chronicles on the PS3 and the sequel on the PSP.

Loli Haruhi still scheduled for me to get, plus it will be nice to have her when I pick up the second season of the anime when the it gets restocked in September.

October

Suddenly October feels a little lonely.

The more I look at her the more I like Dead Master. I do wonder, BRS figma came with the DVD of the OVA will Dead Master as well?

November

This Dead Master though, no matter what happens I will make sure to get her.

A really nice release to commemorate my birthday month.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned how much I liked Persona 3 and it's later incarnations P3: FES and P3P.

As a fan of Persona 3 when I learned Metis was getting the figma treatment she became a must get for me.

I was surprised when Miyafuji went up for reservation. For some reason I had this idea that she was a pack in exclusive for some game or something along those lines.

Although this is no good, I wouldn't be surprised if I bought the whole 501st crew if they get the figma treatment.

I wonder why I keep buying Haruhi figmas, this will be my fifth.  Whatever, long haired Haruhi pleases me plus the included Yuki face is pretty cool too.

December

I think I might end up with too many Nanoha figures. Five figures and one Dollfie and still counting.

One more couldn't hurt I suppose, specially when it has so many goodies and looks so good.

Man, I'm still surprised Alter went with Saten first for a an Index/Railgun figure. I still plan to get her and I look forward to see what comes next in this line from Alter.

To be honest Eva didn't leave a good impression on me after I watched the show and the movies. I had some issues regarding Shinji, the last episode and his role in the movies.

However, recently I read a blog article that allowed to come to terms with my issues with Eva. Now I will give Eva a second chance with the current line of movies.

Not that any of that matters, Asuka is awesome. After her recovery in the final movie and her amazing feat against the mass porduced Evas she became ingrained as the character who made the most impact on me from the show.

When I learned the BRS blu-ray had a special edition with goodies I kinda thought about getting it. When I learned it came with English subtitles it really tickled my fancy.

With the BRS figma having shipped with the DVD I do wonder with how many copies of the OVA I will end up with at the end.

January

Max Factory has been really nice lately, making figmas from my wishlist actual figma releases.

Although kind of a shame Biri Biri can only be bought bundled with a game, I'm still quite happy about this.

At the very least the game being an appropriate fighting game is something I can play without any knowledge of the Japanese language.

This hobby is just too much...

Twitter : )

It's Just Like Making a Christmas List

When I list all the announced figures I want to get for the rest of the year.

Except of course that Santa doesn't magically deliver them to me and that I'm the one footing the bill.

Last month's list for those interested.

July

Marisa got released a while ago, and I bought her in early May from Play-Asia with a May release. In a couple of days it will be August and I wouldn't be surprised if I still don't receive her.

I'm a little annoyed with the limited release of Touhou figmas. Still, whatever troubles I go through to get Marisa is worth it. After all, you can't have a Reimu without Marisa.

Oh well, at least she is still cheaper than Reimu at $60 USD.

August

I can't wait for Azunyan, she is all that's left and I get a complete After School Tea Time band. I didn't really like Azusa more than usual when I first watched K-On! Now though that K-On!! has focused more on her she is growing on me.

Pre-ordered at Hobby Search for 2,266 yen.

I was supposed to have received the BRS figma together with Mio this month but alas she got delayed until August.

While I like BRS I didn't find her appealing enough to put down the money for one of the scaled releases. The figma though? That I'm more willing to buy.

Hopefully with no more delays, pre-ordered at Hobby Search for 2,266 yen.

I was wondering what Touhou girls would Max Factory make after the obvious Reimu and Marisa.

I'm happy that Max Factory went with the battle maid time controlling Sakuya. Out of all the Touhou games I like Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's cast the most so I'm happy when Sakuya was announced.

Speaking of which, Max Factory, I want a Cirno, Remilia, Flandre and Patchouli figmas.

Sakuya has the listing price of 2,800 yen. I plan to acquire her from an auction site or Play-Asia if she is in stock after her release.

Total for August 7,332 yen.

September

Alright once again, go play and buy Valkyria Chronicles for the PS3. Just the other day I played Valkyria Chronicles again and remembered why I like both the game and Selvaria.

I don't remember if I said it before but Alter is my favorite figure producer. With that in mind, a character I like from a game I love by my preferred figure manufacturer is a no brainier.

Selvaria is priced at 8,330 yen in Hobby Search.

Loli Haruhi will be my fourth Haruhi figma and you know what? I don't care.

I should get annoyed at Max Factory for releasing yet another variation of Haruhi as a figma but I'm not.

Either way I look forward to getting her and expanding Haruhi's expression repertoire. Plus now I really want a Kyon to accompany Haruhi and orange is my favorite color.

Anyways pre-ordered for 2,266 yen at Hobby Search.

Total for August 10, 596 yen.

October

While the BRS didn't spark my interest too much Dead Master did. I find her character design really, really appealing and the character both as Yomi and Dead Master was likable for me on the OVA.

I'm a figma collector first and foremost when it comes to figures so I'm not passing her up.

Pre-ordered for the slightly higher price of 2,429 yen.

I own only one Vocaloid figma, Miku, and she is not my favorite by any means.

As for Luka I like her design, so I pre-ordered her just in case later on I ended wanting her.

Pre-orderd at the usual figma price of 2,266 yen.

Now here is one figure I'm glad I pre-orderd just in case as I seen some already closed.

Like I said before I really like the whole mecha musume vibe Klan Klang is giving off with the VF-25 FAST pack. I'm still not sure if I want to get her because of the 10,200 yen price but in case I do she is safely pre-ordered.

Total for October 15, 095 yen.

Novemeber

This Dead Master figure caught my eye instantly and just as she went up for pre-order I quickly reserved her.

I look forward to both owning her and taking pictures of her.

She is the sole release I want for my birthday month at a price of 7,467 yen.

Total for November 7.467 yen.

December

When I first heard of the actsta line I was curious about it. The quality of a scaled figure plus the articulation of a figma together in one new type of figure.

Then I learned the first release was Subaru from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS and then followed by Teana from the same show this July. I mean, out of all the possible choices GSC had there surely was other more popular characters to chose. Because of this I didn't payed attention to the actsta line after it was announced.

That changed with the recent Wonfes when GSC announced a Nanoha actsta.

I'm looking forward to her as she has not only the same accessories as her figma counterpart but even more in the form of the magic circles.  Besides as nice good quality release of one of my top 3 2D girls I can't miss it.

She is pre-ordered with a price of 7,933 yen, while I feel it's kinda high for an articulated figure I have already payed a higher price for a figma.

Now here is a release that I find interesting for three reasons.

The first is that Saten Ruiko a secondary character from A Certain Scientific Railgun got a figure from Alter. The second that Alter would chose to release her first over say Biri Biri or Kuroko or other Index/Railgun characters. The third, that I apparently liked her character enough to buy a scaled figure of her.

Thinking about it the reason I like Saten comes down to two specific episodes from the Railgun anime when she succumbs to effects of Level Upper and when she goes to the make up classes for people who used it.

Well, pre-ordered for 5,780 yen.

Total for December 13, 713 yen.

A pretty large list in my opinion, I really wonder how many will I actually obtain by the end of year.
