Figure discussion/picture thread

So there seem to be a few threads floating about for a particular figure, or something to do with figures, but nothing with a nice, generic title that serves multiple purposes.

Having had my strong willed resistance to buying any figures at all - I have a few small ones that came free with something else like the LE of a DVD, but aside from that the only ones I'd ever bought before were the three Pinky:St x Tenjho Tenge figures - broken down by Good Smile Company's Black Rock Shooter figure due out at the end of the month, I decided to order a few more as well.

Those being, GSC's Hatsune Miku from the World Is Mine music video - in a picture frame, weirdly; Alpha x Omega's (joint venture between Alter and Megahouse) Sarugaki Hiyori from Bleach; Alter's Saber Lily; and finally GSC's Canaan from, uh, CANAAN.

So, what figures do you guys have, or have on order? Which websites do you use for news etc?

Quick list of places to buy figures:

I have a Giratina figure that I got when I preordered Platinum from game rofl, but that's it. Figures are way too expensive and I'd probably ruin them somewhere along the line lol.

I might consider investing TTGL figures in the future though, <3 TTGL.

I own Nono from DieBuster, Noriko from GunBuster, Cammy White from Street Fighter, Light and L from those Death Note Zavvi DVDs which I stopped buying. Also some Oni girl which is just some random animu chick and that's it.

Someone did create a thread a while back but it's buried in the Conventions, Events, and Websites forum. It didn't receive much attention, either, possibly because it was in that forum. Anyway, my post from the thread.

Also, damn you for making me think about buying new figures.

At the moment i've only got some anime figures, had plans to get more but other things came up.

I've got a Aoko Aozaki figure from Lunar Legend Tsukihime


and the Light figure from the Zavi special edition of Death Note

I do have these though representing my love of gundam

F91 Gundam


Crossbone Gundam


Freedom Gundam (note that just because i have this doesn't mean i like SEED or SEED Destiny)


Wing Gundam Zero


I plan to take proper pictures of these though once i get things sorted.

I've got quite a few mobile suits on a shelf too...

Mobile Pod Ball
Strike
Akatsuki
Justice
Saviour
Exia
Throne Drei
Tieren Taozi

Obviously a slant towards the newer series there, but then I saw Seed before I saw the original, and I have nothing against Gundam Seed. My only original series suit is the Ball, but cmon, it's the ball! (and also a very fun kit to put together - I wholeheartedly recommend it)

I love the Dead or Alive level of attention to detail on the breast physics, there. ^_^

Ah yeah, I saw that but ignored it due to the amazingly self-serving title. ^^;

Which websites do people use for figure news/new preorders/release lists etc?

I was looking at the Ball ver KA for some time but when i went to order it, it had sadly gone out of stock at the place i bought it from, along with everything else i would of ordered (like the RX 79 gundam ver ka :( )

I've got my eye on the 00 Riser mind...

I use Gundam Mad for all of my gundam models, they're quite good and they've never given me a reason to complain.

I've got a collection, but it's not that big (not enough shelf space...) It's also mixed in with others, but I'm just showing the anime group part here.
Some of you may have seen most of this before, but it has been updated a little.


Top Bookshelf (Right to left) - Gothic Dress Haruhi Suzumiya; Open blazer Ryofu + Striking Chouun (Ikki Tousen); Deidara plushie (Naruto); Nessie plushie (friends are scottish...); Chibi Momiji figure.

Middle shelf - We have here at the front an Ikki Tousen gasaphon series mixed with an x-mas edition NGE Asuka/Rei and FMA Winry Rockbell. At the Back are Sonsaku Hakufu in a black+fire dress/twin swords and .hack's Blackrose. (And a happy dragon between them all. ^_^ )

Bottom shelf - At the front are the chibi Negima figures from the LE dvd boxsets of the original anime (Chachamaru, Konoka and "Macky-Macki!") The middle line has more .hack in gasaphon figures (Kite, Blackrose and Gardenia). At the back, standing tall, is Love Hina's Naru in swimsuit.

But I cant get anymore atm. I lack room to put it all, so I'm at a stand-still. Most of the big ones are still in their boxes because I think they look good like that. Plus, if the worst comes to worst, they can be resold "like-new" anyways, since I've not opened them at all.

If it was 6-9 months ago, you lost it to me I'm afraid... ;)
