Figuratively Speaking

Post by Kiskaloo on Sat 4 Jun 2016 - 10:11

I know a number of us collect figures, so here is a thread where you can showcase either your favorites or, as in my case, the latest editions:

Charlotte E. Yeager (Strike Witches 2)

 
 
Martina Crespi (Strike Witches Movie Version)

 
 
Chino (Is the order a rabbit??)

 
 
Syaro (Is the order a rabbit??)

 
 
Nozomi Moritomo (The Rolling Girls)

 
 
Rory Mercury (Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri)

 
 
Yukari Akiyama (Girls und Panzer)

Honestly, my collection, and especially what I keep on display, has shrunk significantly since I joined here. What stays out are pretty much just my favourites now:


From top to bottom:
Yuki, from the glorious Yuki 7 faux spy series.
The three senior undines from Aria.
Canti (FLCL), Triela, and Team Anglerfish.

There are quite a few that are pretty new in my collection and the posters are a recent addition! (I actually just got a few more figures recently, so this picture is already out of date)


I got these two a few months ago and they're both on the list of my faves. <3

I'll defiantly take a picture of all my favorite figures together soon! Very Happy

A. LOT.

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Cuz I'm weeb trash. Sad

I took pics of all my favorite male figures, female figures and overall collections of characters. Smile (I couldn't fit my Alter Sanya and Eila figures in there because of their size, but they're my faves too!!)

Not technically a figure, but it turned up today, and I rather like it:


One of the best things about moving is that I have been 100% able to convince myself that this is "furniture", and therefore a justifiable expense... rather than a case of acting the goat.

That rather looks like it belongs in the Chalet. Great find. Is it solid, or is there some storage inside?

If you can't put something on it or in it, it's not furniture, it's art.

P.S. The perspective fooled me at first glance: thought it was four feet tall. Smile

Well spotted. It is, in fact, exactly the same rocket as is in Jethro+Monty's Chalet (albeit there standing in to represent their adventures in Switzerland and French Guiana).

I've actually been wanting one of these things for awhile now (and by "awhile" I mean years), but haven't been able to justify the cost. The combination of the shop putting it on sale, and moving (and needing to fill a space on a side table), seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up.

And no, it is 100% solid, so has no use other than to sit around looking like a rocket. Razz
